The Service was poor, limited wine list, food was ok, ambience needs work, scary part of time (was afraid to leave car alongside restraunt)...just wasn't the romantic feel I wanted for us for Valentine's Day. Just wasn't my taste but I know many of my friends love this place so check it out for yourself and you can form your... More

We went with friends on a Saturday night. The place was busy, noise level was fine and service was excellent. We arrived for 6 PM reservations and secured a parking spot 1/2 a block away on the street. Our server was friendly and provided us with a great overview of the menu. Hubby and I shared the Buratta Mozzarella which... More

Very top end establishment with fantastic food and service. I had the Sea Bass which was probably the best fish I have ever eaten; especially considering it is located in the middle of the prairies. (I have eaten seafood worldwide.) Very good service as all the staff are longtime employees. The prices are very reasonable, I've paid a lot more... More

Entire menu is great, no bad choices. Fish tacos off the charts. Pork carnitas outstanding! GReat location after theatre or other events.

Second time we've been here. First time was on a weekend, which was busy, this time we went on a Tuesday, which was delightful. Because it wasn't busy, we had great service. Food was amazing, as always. A bit more pricey, but worth the money. The proteins, were melt in your mouth, (I had the elk and beef short rib).... More

Besides the unique "Albertan" menu (featuring elk and bison), the superb wine cellar, and the general ambience and romantic atmosphere, what sets this restaurant apart from most others in its class is the 5 star service, second to none in Edmonton.

Downtown Dining in Edmonton features a meal at the Hardware Grill. Having really wanted to go here since coming to Edmonton, it was an obvious choice. Having heard that it was very expensive to dine there always kept us from going and this set price meal was a great way to try. Never having tried these dining experiences before i... More
