Meal was very good - fantastic wings, nice charcuterie board, two thumbs up for the buttery brussel sprouts as a side and great churros! The beverages are always great here!

Overall quite good. I'm a Vancouver resident. Many fine restaurants. Portions tend to be modest in the higher end places, but portion size at Ayden, especially on the starters, were ridiculously small, and though tasty were not good value for the price.
Found the overall ambience a bit pretentious.

Food was unpleasant and overpriced. Too crowded. Not comfortable. Too noisy and close to others. Fine dining prices but not a fine dining experience. Food was focused too much on being different and not on being flavoured to please. I could not finish. My date finished his plate and we had a starter and left hungry. Deep fried shrimp app was something I would get at a bad Chinese restaurant. Was a unique decor but nothing else was good about it.

The food is always amazing however it was extremely busy and loud which took away from the romance of Valentine's dinner. Will definitely continue to come back to Ayden's just maybe not for that occasion

Valentine’s Day set menu. It was AMAZING! Very knowledgeable staff when it comes to wine pairings. And the food was absolutely immaculate. I will definitely be coming back for another set menu night. The dessert (chocolate) was a perfect send off for the night. Amazing *chef kiss*

Food was terrific as always. We've had way better service here before. I know they were busy for Valentine's, but I expect a bit more.

the valentine's set menu was pricey, but that's not really the focus. instead it's about the experience, the food, the service, etc. so even though ayden wouldn't be a frequent dining experience, it's certainly very worth trying

We are from out of town and Ayden Kitchen and Bar has been on my list for a while. Every time I mentioned going there my husband (who is very much a meat and potato type guy) would request we go somewhere else. He would make jokes about probably feeling hungry after leaving this restaurant. Let me tell you he was very impressed and full after our dinner date this weekend. We shared the sausage platter, he got the beef burger and I got the charcuterie board! The food was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect! We will be seeing you guys again! Keep up the amazing work!

We had a great time at Ayden's. The food was unbelievable. There were eleven of us and instead of trying to narrow down our selections on our own, we asked the server to have the chef do a mixture of plates for the table. He did not disappoint. There was a great variety and it was all delicious, I will definitely be back next time I'm in Saskatoon.

We had our first meal at Ayden this past weekend and it was incredible! Our server was informative and friendly and the overall ambiance of the restaurant was warm and comfortable while still being classy. We’ll definitely be back and would 100% recommend!

We had Thai wings to start- they were delicious and the perfect amount to share with my husband. He ordered the pork belly as a main and it was amazing! I had the special which was pasta beef and mushrooms with pickled onions- I was disappointed in the flavour and aesthetics as the whole dish was shades of brown. It was a large serving which some people might like but in this case I couldn’t finish it all because it just wasn’t that appealing in taste or presentation.

Very poor service. Our waitress read from a pad of paper. We had to ask someone to get our waitress so we could order and our waters were never refilled. Staff wore old runners and the lack a bras was very disturbing

Ayden is my favourite Saskatoon restaurant. I go here whenever I can but also go for a family dinner each year on my birthday. It never disappoints! Delicious food, great service, love sitting at the big tables in front of the kitchen so we can see all the dishes being plated.....that’s honestly one of the best parts of the meal 😊

I hadn't been to Ayden in a while; going for dinner makes me want to go again--and as soon as possible. A bit on the louder side, but exceptional food and excellent service, as well as a very good selection of wine and drinks that includes Canadian and local brands. Extremely glad it's in Saskatoon and that we've got a good local scene of beer-makers and restaurants, of which Ayden is a stand-out.

The service was great, the food was good. The lighting was too dark. We were one of two tables while we there that got out their camera light to see the menu or food. My husband enjoyed his steak very much. Wine was a little pricey, tables are small, and should not be placed near a doorway. Tthere were some near misses. But overall, we enjoyed our night out.

I had only been to Ayden once before this, and am still wondering why I've only been there twice!!?? The food is incredible (already craving the gnocchi), the service went above and beyond, and the only problem was that I had to go home because it was a work night. I'm going back sooner than later!!

I was so disappointed. Our sausage platter was barely warm and disturbingly undercooked. The risotto was okay but also barely warm. Not worth the money. Cocktails were yummy!

Outstanding dishes made from quality ingredients paired perfectly with well-balanced cocktails. The highlights were the beats pine-nuts risotto and cocktail containing crabapple syrup. The staff accommodated the request for different table easily. It’s a must place to eat in Saskatoon!

I ordered the risotto and it was barely lukewarm when it came to the table. High price for amount of food, did not come with any side like salad or soup. I expected a bit more quality for the price. Our server was excellent though, no complaints whatsoever on service.

Been to Ayden many times. It’s been awhile, that said since my last visit. Usually take one of the harvest tables overlooking the kitchen. Everyone always enjoys the platings and hustle and bustle of a commercial restaurant kitchen. Food was great from the sausage platter and steak Tatar dishes. Main courses of Cornish Hen, Lake trout , and steaks were all excellent. You know why this place is always busy, consistent quality across the menu.

The service and atmosphere were excellent. The portions, were not. My niece had a burger and fries which did come with enough to fill a person up. I had the trout, and I thought they forgot part of meal. All I got was a little chunk of fish. I was finished in a few minutes. I left just as hungry as when I arrived. Very expensive non meal.

Everything was very good, a bit pricey for what you get, but the everything was very good. I would suggest getting some more affordable wines on your list. There are lots of good affordable wines out there, not every one is up for spending hundreds for a bottle of wine.

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.
