Ayden Kitchen & Bar
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
Haven’t visited in months and food and service was great. Appetizers were delicious and mains were on point. Nothing but positive remarks from everyone. Keep up the great work.
Appetizers were very good as were desserts. Premeal drink specials were quite tasty as well. Waitress was excellent. There were unfortunately a couple hug negatives. Firstly there were no reasonably priced wines on the menu, the lowest being in the $80 /bottle range. However the biggest disappointment were the main courses. 2 of the party ordered cornish hen as that was the only chicken option, and they were served virtually raw, with blood around the joints . The beef option was a rather pricey $45 steak that was way too salty. One of our party of 4 thought the meal was good, the pork belly , even though there was only a tiny strip of meat sandwiched in a lot of fat. All in all , did not come close to meeting expectations
Delicious coktails and delicious food. Warm atmosphere and good service. Had a lovely evening at Ayden Kitchen and Bar.
Service was very friendly and prompt. Food was all delicious and not a long wait time. Restaurant had a nice, chill vibe to it!
This was our first time at Aydens. The service was excellent, very friendly staff. The meal was fantastic, not a huge amount of food, but we were expecting that. The quality and taste made up for the smaller plate. We did not leave hungry though. It was my birthday and I was given a complementary dessert which was excellent. We were encouraged to go to the open kitchen and meet the chef, which we did. I would highly recommend Aydens, and we will definitely go back.
The food was delicious. The service was stellar and the atmosphere was lovely. There were several gluten free options for the large plates. Selection of the small plates was limited.
We both ordered the chicken and our meal was delicious. The waitress was very polite and helpful, made suggestions and didn’t push. We succumbed to desert, the Madelines, and again they were Iver the top. Thanks for a wonderful dining experience, we will be back.
Nice environment and good food. I hope they relocate to a better location.
the food was really good cocktails amazing i would go back
Cozy and relaxed atmosphere. The food is definitely the star of the show and they strive to ensure your meal is perfection.
My husband and I finally made it to Aydens last week for his Birthday.Luved everything ! The atmosphere and service was excellent, food was so awesome. A " must" in Saskatoon.
Great food, cocktails, and service. Seating was a little cramped, but the overall experience was excellent. Our server was outstanding and helped to make the evening magical.
It was our second anniversary and we had gone to Ayden on a couple of our first dates, so we thought it appropriate to go there again.
I had the pickerel it was fantastic.
She had the pork chop special and loved it!
Our server was Jamie, who was very pleasant and provided excellent service. She even helped me re-propose to my lovely Wife, Laurel, who said, “yes” again!
So it was a fabulous dinner and created even more fantastic memories for us.
Carefully crafted food with attention to detail and great wine pairings. Really exquisite flavors
