I have been a few times and have always been impressed. This time not as much. I felt the mushrooms in the Tortalloni were hard and chewy - almost like they were dehydrated and not rehydrated enough. I have had this dish before and was always my favourite but not this time. The Avocado toast I sent back - the thinnest lawyer of avocado I have ever seen and the toast was soggy and barely toasted - should have been called tomato toast as that was the main thing on top of it. I didn't feel the waiter was genuine - a bit over the top and fake where normally they are great and very personable and will always give solid recommendations for food choices. When spending $300 on my next night out...not sure if I will choose this place again.

Excellent overall dining experience. I had a late (8:45) reservation. I called at 6:30 to see if anyone had cancelled so I could possibly get in earlier, the employee that answered said no. When we arrived the waiter told me that they had had 28 no shows so far this evening. I was upset that I was given incorrect information when I had called. Other than that the food was great the waiter was excellent but the prices are exceedingly high even for the quality we received!!

The quality of food was good however not what I would have expected for the price. My $65 12oz ribeye steak was average and frankly a Keg steak was better. Won't be back.

Absolutely fantastic food, and excellent table service. Some of the best food I've had to date in Edmonton. Decor was uninspired and outdated. Paintings were either crooked or off-center. Table was wobbly. Wall color reminiscent of an abandoned swimming pool. Open kitchen/glass wall concept was excellent.

A credit card was requested to book the reservation. It said that it would be charged if we did not show.

We had a gift card that we wanted to use for the occasion but our credit card was charged before we arrived. So we could only use the gift card for drinks. Next time the reservation should be more clear that is was a prepaid event.

Pricey however good delicious and very good service. Have been here several times. The only concern would be very hard to get a reservation time , then for 2 hours during our dinner half the restaurant was empty. Overal would definitely return

Everything from the start was exceptional as always. My favourite place to go in Edmonton never disappointes every time we go. Had a tighter timeline with a function we needed to be at but they ensured their normal high expectations were met without missing out on quality, food presentation taste. The entire experience was 7 out of 5 stars as always. Thanks to everyone at Hardware - you outdid yourself again 🙏🏼‼️

Another wonderful night at the Hardware Grill. The food was absolutely delicious: perfectly prepared and presented, and the servings were (unlike some other places) generous. Attentive and friendly service and perfect ambiance. Our server was thoughtful in accommodating one of our members who is gluten-free.

We sat at the table with a view of the kitchen and enjoyed the chance to watch the chefs.

Where there to celebrate my twins 23...did mention it on reservation and again on the phone , nothing was ever mentioned or done...
one of our guests found a tip of a pen in his food, we really didn't want to make a big deal of it, but after mentioning it to waiter, he never came back to apologize or even give us a dessert for free!? That is not why we mentioned the foreign object , but the waiter handled it poorly!
Next time i will certainly spend my $600.00 somewhere else!

We went for my birthday a couple of days ago and were not disappointed!

My fiance has a dairy allergy and Hardware Grill did a nice job of creating substitutions for their original menu items so that he could enjoy his meal as well.

To top that off, everything was to-die-for! All of our food was perfectly portioned, seasoned and cooked! The wine list was comprehensive without being intimidating for the casual wine-drinker. Our server was excellent - attentive enough to show up at our table the second we needed him but not constantly hovering so that your dining experience still felt intimate.

The only drawback to Hardware Grill is parking (and to be honest, it's only a minor inconvenience and should certainly not deter anyone from going to this restaurant). While there are plenty of open air parking lots close by, it still requires you to walk at least 5 minutes to get to the restaurant. This likely would not be an issue in the warmer months, but in -30 degree weather, it's not the greatest! But, like I said, this is only a minor inconvenience, and the restaurant overall is a homerun!

Exceptional service. Our Server was very knowledgeable of the menu items and our drinks were always filled up. Great food with unique dishes keep it interesting. I like that every entree has a unique plate of the sides that come with it. Seating for two is a little “cozy”, haha... A higher priced meal but worth every dollar!

We dined here before going to a show at Rogers Place. The food was excellent (sea bass, elk, beef tenderloin and lobster pasta) and our waiter Shane was the best. He noted that we needed to be finished in time to get to the show and even though we had a relatively short timeline we didn't feel rushed at all.
