So sad this spot is closing down. This was their last night and we were so happy to get a table. We started coming here when we started dating 11 years ago. It was a bittersweet night for sure.

The schnitzel was very good, with a nice assortment of vegetables. Substantial beer menu, but minimal choices available due to supposed take-over. Not a very clean feel to the restaurant, windows had spills that had not been wiped, bench seating looking rather worn. Lock broken on upstairs bathroom, although downstairs ones are much cleaner anyway. Needs to be better!

We had an excellent experience. We were with some very special friends and the environment and the meal were perfect for this occasion. We go to the Accent Lounge once or twice a year to meet with special people before a Shadow Theatre production. It is always a great location to enjoy a meal and special friends.

Spinac salad and steak tartare excellent. Breaded cheese thing was dreadful. Fresh vegetables with pork schnitzel were nice. Apricot crepe was good. No decaf, though it’s in plain view on “menus “, which were stained xeroxed sheets that would be easy to replace. Server was harried, as it seems they need more staff. Did attempt repair by 10 percent deduction after one of our party had an allergic reaction to something. We couldn’t identify the source. I would go again for steak tartar.

We avoided this venue for almost a year due to the poor service we experienced on our last visit. Thought we'd give it another try...we were truly surprised that the same waiter that provided us shoddy service and attitude was still there. However, we were further surprised that he is now more polite and service-oriented. Kudos to him or whoever wanted him to stay on and provided him some lessons in the restaurant business.

Food was great. Service was great. Atmosphere hasn't altered a single bit....homely and practical.

Highly recommended!

We were there for 25 mjns before we even got a glass of water. It was 45 mins in before we got a drink. The food was okay. It will be a very long time before we go back, if ever.

This place was more casual than I expected. I came really dressed up. That didnt make a difference. I had the best hummus I've ever had. I added my own salt and pepper but it came out piping hot and oatmeal textured. It was the perfect amount to spread on 3 types of bread. My curry pasta dish was 5 star. The chicken chickpea salad was tasty. I had a expectation that was surely surpassed after I ate the food. The location is perfect for me as well. Easy parking and a short walk to the entrance. This place is a must go to and I will be back. If I could find one fault, it was the menu on this site was bigger than the menu at the restaurant. There was also a loud party of 10+ people behind us. They were having fun and soon the noise was filtered out by my attention to my date and the throws of great conversation. That didnt change the quality of food though. This place feels like a hidden gem but in reality it is a star in the light right under our noses

We celebrated a birthday along with friends at Accent on Friday night. We all had a wonderful meal consisting of schnitzel, poutine and the fish specials. They have wonderful cocktail selections and great local craft beer. The staff were super and the chef was able to accommodate our gluten free requests. We were fortunate to experiencetheir live jazz night. What a great time, the place was packed. Accent is our favourite place on Whyte Avenue and we go often.

I like ACcent but the music is always too loud there when I arrive - the server does turn it down a bit when I ask for it to be turned down, but his manner isn't always totally friendly.

I was very pleased with my dinner at Accent European Lounge. They had great beer on tap and a good wine selection. I tried the chicken schnitzel and it was cooked perfectly. Nice and moist with a crispy coating. The vegetables were also cooked nicely. The music was a light upbeat jazz not loud at all. It was great for relaxed conversation had nice lighting. Just a lovely evening. And the prices are very good.
I highly recommend it. Oh and I've had the goulash months ago and it also was very good and a lovely occasion.
If I was closer to it, I'd head there now for a nice dinner.
Cheers.

Accent is one of my favorite restaurants. I absolutely love the ambience - quaint and food is great. They do run out of their bacon wrapped lobster but that just makes you come back again.

First time to Accent and we will definitely return. The pork and chicken schnitzel were both excellent, complimented by a nice variety of perfectly cooked vegetables and potatoes. Food was served hot which is always appreciated. Excellent variety of beer and wine as well.

Accent can sometimes be a hit or miss depending on who is tending tables and bartending. This time, our service was excellent with happy & bubbly staff happy to serve and interact with!

My Beef Tenderloin sandwich was mouth-watering and well plated with a combo of fries and salad. The steak was perfectly cooked and seasoned with a lovely topping of goat cheese.

Unfortunately, my summer evening cocktail was nothing special, and the server was happy to replace it with something with more tste to it (All I could taste was the over-powering lime juice).

Food and service were great. Only downside is we went right after it opened and the floor had just been washed with bleach. Great that it’s clean but the fumes were choking for the first half hour we were there.
