Food was very good, cocktails very good, service was excellent. The space is very noisy when it's busy, but otherwise a great space! Their take on the perogy was excellent!

As always Ayden kitchen and bar never disappoints. The high standard is tough to match in Saskatoon. The beef pasta dish was the best I have ever had including some high end Italian restaurants! Well done and can’t wait for the next experience!

We come to Saskatoon for the Ag in Motion trade show every year and Ayden's has been a high light for the past few years. The food is fantastic and the service is top notch!

Very good food but when 2 people order 2 appetizers, two main courses, no dessert, one beer and a coke and the total is north of $140 ... thats steep. I don’t mind high priced meals when the quality is there but when I get home an hour later and I’m starving it doesn’t speak well to portion sizes. Note I’m not a big guy or an all you can eat buffet type guy.

Our burgers were under done and we only received 3 little pieces of bread to go with mozzarella appetizer we asked for more and received two more. Everything else was great.

We had an excellent experience at your restaurant. The food was fabulous and the service was top notch. The waitress we had really went beyond the call of duty. She really knew all the items on the menu and how the food was prepared. Our party of seven were really impressed with her. She described each item in such a fashion that it was very enjoyable to listen to and and made try various menu items. She really enhanced our dining experience. Well done. We will definitely be coming back when we return to Saskatoon

Visiting from Vancouver, I always have a great meal at Ayden. The appetizers were especially tasty (asparagus, soft shell crab). We had exceptional service with lots of conversation about food selections, and knowledgeable input on wine selection from our drinks server. This is at a quality of food, ambience and service you encounter in Vancouver or Toronto. Ayden has maintained its high standard and, imo, it is the best restaurant in Saskatoon for a contemporary locally sourced meal.

Food was excellent, complex dishes. Thai chicken wings a must, as well had the pasta, perogies, salad and fiddleheads. All tasted wonderful. My only complaint was that despite the restaurant was not busy we were seated at a little table for two. I felt crowded, which detracts from the experience.

I found it awkward to be seated at the back of the restaurant with a view of the back staircase and staff entrance when we arrived fairly early with lots of tables available up front. Otherwise food was good, loved seeing bone marrow on the menu.

We brought some picky out of province guests to dine at Ayden's and they raved about it during and after the meal. The food was exceptional and the service excellent. Would definitely bring other food snobs here in the future and will likely return for an even more pleasant dining experience on our own.

I didn’t expect to find high quality food and an interesting menu in Saskatoon! The good part first:
Food was fantastic. Presentation was lovely, and the green beans were the tastiest I’ve ever had!
I don’t usually eat pork, and it was well prepared and flavourful. The blood sausage was a treat and added depth to the meal. I found the appetizer a bit small - 5 asparagus on my plate, however the flavour was great. Now the ‘rest: The server was totally unhelpful for a restaurant of this food caliber: he offered no constructive information to help me choose anything and didn’t have any recommendations!!! The service was very slow, with water taking over 15 minutes to be offered.

Went there for dinner when we had family in from out of town! Our youngest guest is 9 years old and she loves to watch Dale and Benet on the food network! Dale was unfortunately not there but Benet invited her into the kitchen for a photo and graciously took some time to come and talk to her. Not only did we really enjoy the food but the service and experience was really great!

We were so excited to try this restaurant, but the food fell short of the hype and price. The pork was overcooked and the popcorn shrimp were just deep fried with little flavor. AveNue is much better.

I will say the wait staff was outstanding.
