Accent European Lounge
Front and centre is our amazing food and equally amazing executive chef, Huy Quach. Huy has a part in each and every meal that is prepared at Accent, and his experience and attention to detail is abundantly clear in all of his amazing creations.
Our menu is a medley of traditional European fare combined with local favorites. Every dish is prepared using only the finest ingredients. Fresh bread, hand-picked produce and the most succulent cuts of Alberta Beef are staples in our kitchen.
At Accent, quality means that every bowl of soup, every sauce and every salad dressing is made in-house from the freshest ingredients around. Take one taste of our food and we guarantee that you'll be able to tell!
*Please note that Accent is a no minors establishment
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.
Love the steak tartare ❤️, always good and reliable
Food was good. The price was reasonable. Did not have to wait to ping for our food.
A cozy atmosphere... down home pub. Food was fresh and tasty. Good value!
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.
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.
Best steak tartare ever! We loved that it was half prived wine on thurdays!
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.
Accent Lounge was excellent once again. Food was stellar and the ambiance was great as usual.
Steak tartare never disappoints half price Wednesday. Yes please
We had 4 different dishes All were excellent and reasonably priced.
I love the steak tartare . It's what I always order .
I’ve never been disappointed coming to this restaurant. Great menu, great food and great service. The patio is also great in the summer. This restaurant is cozy and a great place to hangout with friends.
Had an early New Year’s Eve dinner with a friend. Great food served quickly. Good selection of wine including wine by the glass. Thoroughly enjoyable!
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.
Great food and drinks!
Felt like we were in a neighbourhood cafe in NY. Service was great, nice menu, music, ambience. The food and wine were great, good value.
Best Steak tartare in town!
Good service! Cozy spot for an after work drink .
Love accent lounge but our server was not overly friendly for such a large group and no one else in the restaurant
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.
Great Service, half price Steak Tartare on Wednesdays, Got the Steak Tartare, 2 entrees, a bottle of wine and split a crepe for dessert and it wasn't even $100!!!! Cozy atmosphere and the best Mornet & Schnitzel I ever had!
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.
Service is always wonderful. Small restaurant with great ambience.
Great experience and ambiance :)
Always love coming here!
Once again,,, this restaurant never fails to impress me.. I have been here many times in the last year and have never been disappointed.
The food, service and atompshere is a 10 plus...
Healthy, efficient and cozy are words to describe this gem of a restaurant.
Keep up with the excellent service.
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).
So glad to have stumbled upon this place. Wonderful tasty appetizers , schnitzel and a glass of house wine were a perfect end to the week with friends. Live music afterwards was a bonus. Will definitely be back
been going there for years and as always no surprises, which is a good thing. Food is fresh, tasty , good value, good beer selection (lots of import from Europe (very little American crap), good service, good location, good atmosphere.
Accent please don't change anything
Good food, well prepared. Busy and noisy restaurant.
This is such quaint restaurant...
So European and the food is wonderful.
Great restaurant for a romantic dinner or just getting together with friends or family.
The food was delicious and the service was awesome! A lovely date night.
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.
We enjoyed Accent European Lounge. It has something for everyone. Prices were Ok but they could have been better.
Best steak tartar in town!
