Ayden Kitchen & Bar
Popcorn Prawns were as delicious as always, Thai chicken wings were a little heavy on the seasoning but still very appetizing, Classic Burger with the added Fresh Farm egg is always a good choice was cooked perfectly to a medium rare. Overall food was very pleasing. Had an odd table which was in a little nook, made our conversation seem echoey and everyone else around us seem loud. Service is always good, fast and attentive.
Meals were great. Burger was awesome as usual. I
I had perogies. Weren’t very many and way over fried. Plus not even close to enough sour cream.
I’m Ukrainian so o am used to home made sorry.
Overall experience was very good.
Great food, exciting to be in the presence of a top chef Canada winner :)
We knew it would be expensive, but we thought the food would at least taste good.
Very delicious. Good size portions but not heavy.
We had a wonderful time. The food was amazing and our server (I’m sorry I missed her name, blond hair with purple highlights and tattoo sleeves) went above and beyond. Honestly the best server I have had in memory, attentive and funny, passionate about the menu. Please let her know how fantastic she is!
We were in town visiting family and it was the perfect space to catch up and relax. We used to live in Saskatoon and Aydens was the restaurant we wanted to make sure we visited while we were back in town.
Food and wine was spectacular as always and the service from Sarah was the perfect capper to the evening. A must doing when in Saskatoon.
This outing was a business function, and the restaurant certainly impressed. Food was great, atmosphere and décor as well. Loved the open kitchen concept, and was interesting watching the Chef at work! My wife chose the location for me, we have never been....but plan to return for our own personal dining experience.
My daughter and I went to Aydens for supper before going to the festival of trees. We had the Thai wings, popcorn shrimp and burgers. The meal was amazing. Our waitress, Ivy, was fantastic. Very attentive and pleasant. Looking forward to the next time we need another Aydens evening!!
Had an amazing time! Service staff were informative of menu items, attentive and very friendly. Food was fantastic and the unique cocktails complimented everything nicely. We were celebrating a birthday and even got a surprise complimentary dessert. Loved everything about our time spent here!
Amazing food & cocktails, delicious and thought out. I was so happy to see how COMFORTABLE the waitstaff looked, beautiful women but none in high heels and all in comfortable looking jeans. And it didn't take a damn thing away from the atmosphere! Lovely service by Emily.
We went to Ayden’s to celebrate our anniversary and were not disappointed. The food and service are excellent and we will definitely go back!
So so good!
Great gluten free options :). Great food, good atmosphere.
Everything was Great! Except the steak that I had. It was a 10 oz strip lion. I know that strip loins have a strip of fat on them, but this steak had wayyyy to much fat on it. And for $43 I feel that I overpaid for it. So really I had a 7 oz steak and 3oz of fat. If that’s the case, don’t charge $43
Food and service were great as usual. Pig appetizer was outstanding. Cocktails were yummy. Staff was attentive, friendly but not overbearing. Still one of the best in Saskatoon.
Great meal and service!
Excellent Food! Great Atmosphere.
Very tough steak and over priced.
We were celebrating our 40 th anniversary and the staff and the food were amazing
I had wanted to treat my wife to a nice date night. I had searched for "Best restaurant in Saskatoon" and wanted to try out Ayden Kitchen & Bar. It looked like it should be a solid pick.
First impression our waitress was slow and her attitude was not great. When taking our order I found her a little condescending. I attempted some table banter with the sommelier and the waitress but there was very little to be had.
The wine we chose was advertized on the menu to be a 2013 but we received a 2016 and the difference was noticeable.
I ordered the beef special which was described as a 8-10oz steak and I felt that 8oz might be generous. My wife had the gnocci and at first she described it as tasting "earthy" and later more like "dirt". She did not enjoy it. I enjoyed my steak but was a bit disappointed at the portion size. The desserts were underwhelming.
While I am all for the relaxed service style and environment I found our waitress was dressed maybe a little too relaxed and I also prefer a bit more fun and promptness when receiving service.
I have promised my wife that we do not have to return to this restaurant again.
The tartare was so good, literally I was already missing it on the way back home
However I wouldn’t recommend visiting on a Friday night it’s just too many people and very noisy
Surprise local gem. Food was beyond expectations.
It was great dining experience!
The waitress was friendly, informative and timely as were the other servers who brought out the courses. The flow of a great team. The cocktail waitress likewise was fantastic and walked us through to 2 great recommendations which we greatly enjoyed.
We were celebrating our anniversary and had excellent service from our waitress and from the bar manager! We were surprised with a little dessert at the end as well which was a tasty treat!
We had a great dinner and loved everything from the local mushroom app to the warm Madeline desert. Our servers were the best!
Excellent meal and great service!
Wonderful place with a great atmosphere. Service is great with care and attention from servers and staff. Food was very good, as care and thought were put into every dish. It obvious the chef has a passion for food with detail to match. It also appears the front end staff are as passionate about the food as the kitchen. Our server ‘First day Jack’ Aka. Sara, was fun, energetic and attentive. Manager Jack very much cares for the experience of the customer, being involved through out service. The mushrooms on toast was quite amazing. Fresh, seasoned wonderfully, with a cream sauce, on a tasty, toasted Ciabatta. This is the best version of this I have ever had. Charcuterie was fresh, tasty and generous with its selection of meats. They also had an adequate amount of toast and crackers. Always a peeve of mine when there is not enough to match the board, so well done! I would of enjoyed a couple of cheese selections and nuts or fresh fruits, even if they were at an extra cost, but this board as it is, I am sure would satisfy the masses. Dessert’s were very good. The bread pudding was delicious and satisfying. Raspberry coulis as a sauce was tasty. Madeleines were light and tasty but the chocolate sauce that accompanied it was thin, more like a hot chocolate. I was wanting more of a ganache with some substance in dark or white chocolate. We had dipped them in the coulis, which was great. Overall I am looking forward to returning to try other dishes as they appear to be well thought and creative. I did not mention the pickles as I did not feel they were to my taste but the dill pickle was very good. Great job putting a spin on dishes with fresh ingredients, which is always fun, to go along with an excellent staff.
Excellent service and exceptional food.
Always good and great experience. Cool room, great food and service
Were there before the Elton John concert. Waiter gave us notice when best time to order was so we got out food and out the doors in good time. Food was excellent as always. Sausage platter was good but charcuterie board wasnt as good as it has been in the past. Overall a great meal and great time with friends as usual tho. Definitely will be back.
Amazing food and service as always!
Great meal! Ivy was a great server, provided great insight to the menu and was very caring.
Excellent food, service and cocktails rival some of the best bars. Highly recommended! Will visit next time I’m in town.
The food and service was outstanding. For a date night it was quite noisy due to the full restaurant. Still it was well worth a visit.
Absolutely amazing! My girlfriend and I came here to celebrate her birthday and we had a great time. The service was great and everything was delicious. Will definitely be returning!
great food great drinks good people, Saskatoon is lucky to have a place like this.
Amazing from start to finish. I couldn't find a bad thing to say if I tried.
Great meal and decor. Will definitely come back next time in Saskatoon
