St. Albert
About the restaurant
Bodega St. Albert, never judge a book by its cover. You’ll find our St. Albert location in a nondescript strip mall on one of St. Albert’s busiest streets. Step inside the doors and be transported to a bustling spot, that’s become a gathering place for those seeking a downtown vibe in the ‘burbs. Enjoy our Spanish and Portuguese tapas cuisine without the long trek.

We are a friendly Neighbourhood restaurant & kindly ask that guests observe a two hour dining experience on busy evenings so that we can give a great experience to as many of our valued patrons as we can, as he feel terrible turning customers away.

If you are looking to make a reservation larger than 6 people, or are looking to book our private "chef's table", please contact us at (587) 290-1119!

Thank you

Wine Bar
Spruce Grove
About the restaurant
The Grape & Olive is Spruce Grove’s only wine and martini bar. It’s a little more upscale than your typical pub, but it’s still relaxed and inviting. It’s a place where a sport coat or stilettos won’t look out of place for dinner in the evening, but neither will a golf shirt for drinks on the patio in the afternoon. Our couches are a cozy spot for a special date night or a long-overdue catch-up with friends. Our barstools are the perfect place to unwind and sip a cocktail or a scotch.

All reservations will have a 2-Hour time limit for your table. If you need more time, just give us a call!

We are a no minors venue.

About the restaurant
Aalto’s inspiration runs deep. From Pyramid Lake’s shimmering waters to the sky-scraping peaks that tower above, we’ve translated our neighbouring natural wonders onto our menu. The result is what we call “lake-food” — a homegrown interpretation of seafood that spotlights Jasper’s finest regional flavours.

Everything was fantastic. It’s a beautiful spot with a great food and drink selection. The bison and duck were cooked to perfection and the presentation and service was immaculate. Couldn’t speak more highly of this place.

Edmonton
About the restaurant
vivo is where Italian comes alive. We relish the enthusiasm and joy with which the traditional Italian meal is prepared and delivered, and seek to recreate that experience for every guest. Our open kitchen showcases our chefs preparing fresh and local ingredients.

When you join us for dinner, expect it to be a relaxing evening lasting a couple hours over several piatti (courses). Your table comes alive when we present a variety of large offerings on platters or bowls within easy reach of all.

A classic Italian pranzo (dinner) usually beings with a variety of antipasti (hot and cold appetizers), followed by one or two primi (usually a hot pasta, risotto, gnocchi or zuppa). Next your table will share a secondi (entrees) served on a platter combined with your choice of contorni (vegetable side dishes). Italians often complete their meal with un dolce, un caffe, or un digestivo (dessert, espresso, liqueur or grappa).
we only use fresh in house made pastas and sauces.

Amazing food, great service, and wonderful experience. The owner came over and helped my husband find a drink, as they didn't have the liquor he wanted. His recommendations were a hit!!! My husband was extremely happy with advice and enjoyed the drinks!! I recommend Vivo to anyone who wants a friendly experience, and a great time.
