Saskatoon is not a very big place. Finding somewhere to eat is within walking distance in downtown. Was craving a good meal, and found Ayden to be highly recommended.

I was dining by myself and found a spot at the bar thinking I'd get some banter out of the bartender since I am in town scoping out the city, people, and vibe for work.

He was great at talking me into a cocktail, which was a nice start of my meal, and we weather talked for 30 seconds, of which he got super busy after and then there was no talk except if I needed to top up more drinks or order more food.

The food was exceptional, he recommended the trout, which was delicious, and the chicken liver was delightful. Overall value for food, drink and experience was great.

The only negative I had was that I waited almost 50 minutes for my entree order of the trout. I politely asked at 45min and said, I may have to leave if it is not here soon as it is getting late, and I was a little disappointed.

The bartender explained that a large table came 5min before me and got their orders in that slammed the kitchen, he apologized, and I understood, these things happen.

I'd come back and was very happy with the food quality and experience. I'd recommend to check it out if you've never been.

My best friend and I came in Saturday night for her 30th Birthday. We enjoyed some cheese straws & tater tots to start... and my god. That herb dip is unreal. I was eating it with my fork after we ran out of tots. We also had the pleasure to try the fish & the pork loin. Wowowow so good. I feel so lucky to enjoy food like this right here in Saskatchewan. Everything was absolutely fabulous. Our server, Alissa, was awesome throughout the evening. She never missed a beat! 12/10 experience. We will definitely be back!!

I thought I'd try to order a simple burger to see just how great they could make that it was fabulous. The ginger gimlet matched my order very well.

Food was amazing. Service was very professional yet super friendly and personable. It was really busy on Friday night but service staff still took the time to answer our detailed questions and provide us with an excellent service. It was good to see the restaurant busy again after the pandemic!

Love the quality of the place combined with the casual but very professional service. The inside dining room was fine, but not memorable. A little noisy and echoey.

The cured trout small plate was exceptionally delicious!!

The hostess called us because we were running late due to unforeseen circumstances. They told me it would be okay if I was 45mins late as long as we were finished before the next reservation. Which was perfectly acceptable because me and my friend were only grabbing a quick burger and beer. Not even 20mins later we received another phone call asking again if we were still showing up. Upon arrival to an empty resturant not even two minutes later we were seated at the worst possible table. We were ignored by our server for over 15min likely because our server was in another section which was annoying because the hostesses wanted us to rush through our meal.

The food was outstanding, no doubt. The service was below average. Not topping up waters, not responding to queries and infrequent “check-ins”. I’m sure the pandemic affected this and their Human Resources are stretched. If they shaped up their service - would say one of top restaurants in s’toon. Recommend.

My new favourite restaurant in Saskatoon.

Outstanding overall. A nice surprise. We had the seven course tasting menu. Started with asparagus and cured pork loin appetizers both excellent, with gruyeres and marmite puff pastry sticks followed by some lovely chicken liver pate with blue cheese and a haskap berry chutney served with some grilled house bread. There was a lovely sweet carmelized carrot dish and some outstanding dry aged steaks with asparagus and shallot purée that were perfect in every way. Dessert was excellent rhubarb cake with a berry sorbet.

Overall great food, excellent service and excellent value for food of this quality.

I wanted to try Ayden Kitchen & Bar to try something different for a date night. The service was great, and the food was AMAZING! I usually order things I am comfortable with, but decided to order out of my comfort zone, and I am so glad I did! The drinks were also incredible. I would definitely recommend to friends and family.
I hope to be back here very soon!

First date night since Covid. We did the 4 course chefs menu and it was perfect amount of food for us. Everything was fabulous. Feature cocktail was perfect for hot weather. Wife ordered a mocktail and bartender did a great job making her a delicious one. Servers were very personable and attentive without overbearing. They explained dishes very well and answered all our questions with great knowledge. We had a fantastic night out and we can’t wait to come back!

There was some weird guy on the next table shouting and cheering which made me a quite uncomfortable. Strange that no one told him to be quiet at a smart place. Would have seemed out of place in any sports bar.
I had a burger which was quite nice. Portion sizes are small, but the food was tasty. It’s one of those irritating places where you have to order side dishes to complement your food which makes it look like you’re not paying through the nose when you are really.
Won’t hurry back. Had much nicer meals elsewhere in Saskatoon.

Really good flavors with the exception of the steak tartare- take a pass on that one dish. Server and sommelier were helpful although our server did not know how to respond to my comment about that less than perfect dish

Menu needs to be updated. New desserts with more variety would be nice. Been the same for a while now. Considering the owner, would expect it to be more innovative and progressive, but seems to be getting stagnant now. Had the fishcake and carrot dishes. Fishcake was not awesome. Carrots were really good.

Prawn appetizer was the best part of the meal. I ordered the special large plate , Cornish hen, it was pretty tasteless and a watery potato spinach side dish. My husband had the duck and it was overdone. We have eaten here several times and they catered to my home in the past , always very good but this was very disappointing.
