Description: Redwater Rustic Grille’s market driven menu is a fresh interpretation of contemporary West Coast Cuisine with signature dishes and innovative creations. A favorite destination for wine-lovers and foodies alike, Redwater’s wine menu features specialties from smaller boutique wineries, many of which are not found elsewhere in the city. The large selection of wine complements the executive chef's menu of seasonal robust dishes. Canadian Coral, soft lighting, the contemporary lounge and the large glass wine cellar enclosing the private dining room; creates an ambiance of casual refinement. Servers are warmly professional and their enthusiasm for great food and wine is infectious. Redwater is a proud recipient of the 2007, 2008 & 2009 Wine Spectator Awards. Dress: Smart Casual. Please note hats are not permitted in the restaurant and we do not have highchairs/booster seats or childrens menus.

“I like my steak!”
Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

My martini was good. The Malbec was okay but they used to have a better wine list. Mushrooms are good but not as good as they used to be. Peppercorn sauce is good. I miss the broccolini. The carrot cake was a bit dry. The gelato was good. The latte was fine. The table has a few nicks, wear and tear that never used to be there.

“Worth the trip”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

We had previously been to the same restaurant on McLeod and really liked it.
Friendly staff in both. Accommodating when we asked for a quiet corner far from the music. The music was particularly soothing that day and we totally relaxed and could have a nice talk.
Our server was charming and funny. Our food wonderful: a pasta dish for my friend, a perfectly medium rare steak sandwich with cheddar soup for me.
Good selection of wine by the glass though we could always wish for more Canadians and less Californians.
Great location though we did a double take when a sign on the main floor directed us downstairs. There is an elevator for those who need it.

“Effective Location!”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

WE found the ambience to be very pleasing. Usually We enjoy the bar area, but
due to a private party, We had our first look at the dining room. We sat window side
overlooking the patio--very nice and very effective booths along the back wall.
Service was immediate and friendly but had to sit for awhile before beverages arrived.
Red pepper dip was excellent, bruscetta with goat cheese had to be returned but was very good.
A flatbread pizza with prosciutto and artichoke was the hi-light. Pre-dinner cocktails were
served correctly and our replacement wine was well chilled and better than our order.
We had carrot cake with a birthday candle and it was very tasty.
Specialty coffees were supurb.
Repeat? Yes!
Nice summer patio? Yes!

“lunch was lacking”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Was here with a group, and was rather unimpressed by the experience.
Service took a long time, some food was very cold. There was a minor mix up with my meal, and the waitress was incredibly lacking in how she handled it, she was quite rude about it, and offered no apology, but blamed me. Frankly, unimpressive in how that was handled, and I probably won't go back.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

I have been here at least 10 times. Unfortunately it is nothing to rave about for the price. The food has been less pleasing than pleasing. Some of the meals have been terrific but it truly is a lottery to eat here and for the price it should be consistent. There seems to be a lot of staff turnover as well. Never a good sign to a good restaurant.
