“Dirty, Slow, and Careless”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

After waiting nearly 2 hours for our lunch, out of the 6 of us - 1 meal was eating temperature. No apologies, no nothing. Full pop on the bill. Portions were tiny, prices too high. Everything in the restaurant was falling apart or filthy. I can't believe they have any kind of reputation! I will never go back!

“Excellent Ambiance and Taste”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

We live in Saskatoon and consider this our favorite restaurant. It is upper casual, but also more formal dress is common. One feels relaxed, and service has been excellent. The Lounge has identical menu and pleasant in every way. The bar tender, George, is terrific - as is the owner, Curtis. He is usually on site and will often thank you as a newcomer, as he does with us as repeat customers. The wine is very good value, with good selection.

“hit and miss”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

The location and atmosphere of this place is great. We found it on a recommendation from a colleague. The food was very good. Unfortunately, there was little attention to detail. The tablecloths in our section were all extremely wrinkled, and very little care seem to have been taken in set-up. It made the whole experience a 'little less', and every time we looked down we commented that we felt like someone had left their newly washed bedsheet on the table. The server was okay, but seemed a bit flustered at times, and was hard to find when there were issues with not having received what was ordered, etc. With a little bit of sharpening around the edges, this would be a great experience, as the food is very good. But for the price, we also expect the service elements.
