Our group of 6 decided to visit the Spadina Freehouse for dinner on a Friday evening. We did not call ahead to inquire about reservations however were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to ample seating. The restaurant was busy but not packed, which made for a great social evening. Our group of 6 have all recently relocated to Saskatoon from various parts of Canada and are trying to experience as many local restaurants as possible. The restaurant is located in a beautiful part of downtown Saskatoon, which really adds to the overall atmosphere of downtown. Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted by a friendly hostess who showed us to the rest of our party. The menu is varied and has lots of options that would suit most people's preferences. I particularly enjoyed the variety of vegetarian and gluten free options, which were clearly stated on the menu. For appetizers we chose the dry, bone in ribs which were very good and enough for sharing. I chose the Red Curry Mango Penne and added blackened chicken for a protein. The curry was creamier than I thought it would be however it did not disappoint. It also came with 2 triangles of flatbread, which was a nice little palate cleanser when I was finished the pasta. The blackened chicken had a lot of flavour and was a nice change from standard grilled chicken. This dish was very filling and I was not able to finish it. My husband chose the Wood fired Chicken (blackened also) and said it was very good also. A couple of the orders at our table came out wrong as they were brought by the hostess and not our server. Our server was quick to come to our table and apologize for the mistakes and brought the correct sides in addition to leaving the original (incorrect) sides at no extra cost. She simply stated it was their mistake so the additional sides were no extra cost. We had a great dining (and social) experience at Spadina Freehouse. I will definitely return and can't wait for the summer to sit and enjoy dinner on the patio.
