Came here for an end of RSP season late lunch celebration with coworkers and a business associate and it was really good. Our server was very nice and attentive, the food came relatively quickly and one of my co-workers got a really fancy fizz cocktail with poprock rimmer! She said it was awesome. Our apps were good but they were... More

Not a traditional family restaurant but we felt quite welcomed and the kids enjoyed their snacks,dips and mains. The scallops were just right with a nice complement of flavours from the pear and bacon. The steak frites has a nice pepper crust and the sauces added a great variety of flavour. Great service finished the meal with a tasty brownie... More

I like the informal bar side a lot.. we had some great conversations, and every once in a while, you could check out the score in the hockey game.on the big screens. We had cousins in from Edmonton, and we enjoyed the ambience . The waitress was friendly and the food was excellent. It was an evening to remember

Food and service were exceptional. Didn't have as good an experience a year prior but was pleasantly surprised this time around. Will definitely return.

We were served by a very friendly lady, Kimberly, who amended our selection to include some vegetables which we preferred. Very hot and fresh coffee, delicious bread to nibble on and then an excellent roasted herb chicken meal. We go there often and the Wildcraft has become our favourite restaurant.

Wildcraft offers both a lounge with a large, elegant bar as well as tables and booths for a more informal bite to eat or drink as well as a dining room which, while slightly more formal is still comfortable and cozy. The fireplace offers ambiance to the dining room. Food is lovely, done with attention to detail.

Nice restaurant. My husband & I dine here often. Great food and friendly staff. Kale Caesar Salad and Steak & Frites is my personal favorite but have had other dishes. Worth a visit for sure.

We brought a group and had a great time. Service was friendly and fast. We ordered the steak, Asian bowl, the pork chop and the gourmet hamburger. All our meals were hot and tasty. It's a bit pricy but there are less expensive options. Recommended and a great alternative to the keg.

Great atmosphere, quality food. Nice selection. Had a pretty good unhurried lunch here. Good service. Kinda pricey but not outrageous.

Dined there last night with wife. Seated in bar area with no alternative offered. Fairly dark, a little noisy. Lots and lots of TVs. Wife found if cool and drafty, and draped her coat over her shoulders. We ordered two "starters" and a salad each. Seemed to take a long time. I had a beer, which, by the time all... More
