We ate here twice because the food was so delicious. As a person who can't eat gluten I was thrilled with the perogies and the interesting flavours offered. I had the brisket and the pulled pork, both amazing, especially with dill sauce. I also had...a tiramisu which was excellent. Servers were very friendly and attractive and reasonably attentive. Our only complaint was that it took so long to get our food. It was over 90 minutes before the main course food came to our table. I am very glad we started with soup to tide us over. I recommend planning nothing else for your evening or just placing a pick up order. I will go back, but I will likely just pick it up to save time.More

We spent 3 days in Edmonton and ate here 2 times. Food and service were very good. The Sauerkraut and potato soup was delicious!! Friday night was very busy, and Sunday night was very quiet. I would definitely recommend this place.

Friends had recommended this restaurant since we were passing through Edmonton on our way home to Victoria and since my husband and I both like good schnitzel we decided to give it a try. Well, what a dining experience! From our server Gabriel, who is...what every server should be, to every morsel of food, we have nothing but good things to say. Although we both had the schnitzel we each picked a different sauce. I preferred the dill sauce to my husband's mushroom sauce, but both were delicious. Oh, and giving us a sample of their signature dill pickle soup was a good move. We will definitely order it the next time we are there. And there will be a next time.More

We (four of us) recently ate here on a western vacation. Wonderful to have a full selection of gluten free foods (an allergy). All four chose different meals and all meals were excellent. The service was also excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Definitely recommend.

We recently had the pleasure of eating here for the first time but it definitely won't be the last. Everything we had was delicious and the variety is like nothing I have ever seen before on a GF menu. We started off sharing perogies and...then enjoyed schnitzel and the stroganoff with spaetzle, and finished off with wonderful desserts. My spouse is not GF but he loved the food as much as I did. And the service was excellent.More

Food, price & ambiance were very good. We both had the dinner special (Schnitzel with mashed potatoes/mushroom gravy). This was a bit overcooked & somewhat dry. Started off with the Dill Pickle soup which is always Amazing! One of us also had the Dutch Herring...as an appetizer, which was delicious! Finished off with the Tiramisu that just melted in our mouths (shared of course)! The piece was huge -more than enough for one person.More

We booked for a party of 14 to celebrate an 80th Birthday at the NEW Jasper ave location! We had perfectly distanced tables of 7, close enough to be involved in conversation. Given the wide range of dietary restrictions in the group, the facility, staff...and Chef easily accommodated as everything in house is gluten free! Despite the size of the party, our food came as ordered…hot and delicious! Even the delicious Black Forest B-Day cake was gluten free! I can’t thanks the staff, Chef and Sly enough for making this a memorable experience! Well deserved Kudos all around! PS- You HAVE to get a bowl of the dill pickle soup!! Sooo good!More

My wife and I dropped in last week after years of seeing this special place at the corner. Turns out it was under new ownership as this continental treat place---which turned out to be amazing. We had a three course dinner with Pickle Soup as...a starter (kind of a twist on cream of potato soup...scrumptious!), dutch herrings for the appie and amazing dinners: beef roladen and some spectacular chicken dish. The service was pleasant and attentive, taking care of every need we had and the restaurant was aobut 50% full---lots of gracious spacing between tables and a classy atmosphere. Nothing much to improve at all--the pricing was reasonable and the portions amazing. Maybe provide more of the tasty starter breads? ;)More
