“average steak -great signature dish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

strip loin steak was only average and overpriced. However the raviolli with prawns was a life changer-amazing flavor! There are better steaks at more reasonable prices in town and the service was onmly fair. Prices were high but the wine list was good. Sort of an industrial ambiance.I can recommend this place based on the chef's specials.

“A good option if you're mall-bound and want a relaxing sit-down meal.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

We chose this spot because of a good TripAdvisor rating and we're pleased with our choice.

The location, right at the edge of the mall by Sears, made for a quicker trip to the dining table than some of the in-mall restaurants offer.

We sat in the solarium, which was a lovely sun and plant-filled spot.

The beer list and wine list are both decent, with some interesting offerings.

On the waitress's suggestion, we tried the short ribs and duck club sandwiches. The rib sandwich was salty (which she warned us it would be). The duck club was a rather eclectic, but not unpleasing combination of tastes.


The sandwiches were a bit pricey for a lunch out, but worth trying as part of our Edmonton experience. If you're visiting town, and at or near the mall near mealtime, it's worth a try.

“Nice Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

Went here the other night with some out of town guests. We shared some appetizers of Calamari and Tuna Tataki which were both very good. I then had the Butternut Squash Ravioli with Prawns with sage and truffle oil which, as previously described, is absolutely excellent. The flavours are amazing. Just delicious. Friends had steaks which were perfectly cooked and my husband enjoyed his burger. Oddly enough, my son didn't like his Terriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl. Not sure why, I didn't taste it, but he normally likes everything. Service from Jeremy was excellent and we had a nice evening.

“Yum Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Went here for dinner with a friend as it was one of her favourite places! Was surprised to see Rob Feenie helped design part of the menu!

The service was a bit on the slow side although it was jam packed at around 5PM in the afternoon. They had beer on special for 5 bucks a pint (Can't remember which) which was a plus.

I had the duck club sandwich which was AWESOME One of the best sandwiches I think I've had...it's a bit pricey and I wouldn't do it everyday but the food is excellent- you get what you pay for. Also sat outside on the patio..which was also plus:)

Would totally recommend as a restaurant to bring a date or if you're looking for somewhere a bit nicer with great food :)

“Place to spend an evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

At cactus the service was cordial ,friendly and good . In Edmonton time have changes over the years it is not only steak and burgers anymore ,this was 30 years ago now you can find very nice restaurant and good food. Of course in Alberta you go for the beef and the salmon since it iscoming from there and you know it will be fresh and testy. This is what we had and was perfect .So going to cactus you will not be disappointed
