“Nice place, highly recommend”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Nice place, good food, atmosphere casual but not too casual, but you get to seat yourself which is nice. Nice "off the beaten path" menu with several gluten free and vegetarian choices. Nice staff, pretty good beer selection.

“Best food we had in Saskatoon”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

At the end of our weekend trip to Saskatoon we were looking for a restaurant that had good and flavorful food. The Rook and Raven delivered with great food, not bar food. You can tell that the chef has put time and effort into his recipes and menu options. We were there on a very busy Saturday night and the place was packed. The waitress said that they had already ran out of several of the menu items but the 4 of us each ordered a different item and no one was disappointed. Just like everywhere we went in Saskatoon, staff was very nice.

If you are in a hurry, ask about cooking time before you order. We weren't in any hurry so it didn't affect us but we did hear the waitress tell other tables that one of the menu items took 30 minutes to cook.

“So great!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

From the makers of the Yard&Flagon, the Rook and Raven offers fantastic food, fantastic service, and fantastic atmosphere. I've tried several dishes here and they have all been great, - for lunch may I recommend the Portabella mushroom burger? Also, great location right downtown.

“Amazing Food, Good Atmosphere”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I will absolutely go back here. The food was phenomenal. The taste was incredible, presentation was good, and the service was pretty quick too. The decor of the restaurant was a cool combination of classy and funky. The server was average... not great, not bad... she did her job efficiently and accurately, and was pleasant enough. But again... by far the best meal I have ever eaten in Saskatoon.

*tip... try the Pork Tenderloin

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

We were looking for a place for a quick lunch on a recent trip and we popped into The Rook and Raven. We could tell when they told us what the specials were that this was not an ordinary pub-style restaurant. I had the cauliflower curry soup and my Wife had a couscous salad with blackened chicken. The food was very good and very tasty. The service was quick despite a Friday lunch crowd. We liked it so much we returned a few nights later before we left town and had an equally pleasant experience for dinner. I had the Thai coconut curry soup and prime rib yorkie (Yorkshire pudding wrapped) bites and my Wife had chicken pot pie. Again the service and wait staff were very knowledgable and attentive. The food arrived and it was very good again. It was very creative considering this first appeared to be a standard pub and perhaps it was the surprise factor but this would have to be one of the top 10 places I've ever eaten at. This will definitely be a stop when we are in Saskatoon again.
