I had a dietary restriction I let them know about ahead of time and reminded them of once we arrived l. They didn't follow it for a few courses so I couldn't eat them. The server implied he was more knowledgeable than I was and assured me I could eat certain things. My doctor the next day confirmed he was wrong. We only really liked 1 course out of 10. I had been looking forward to eating at this place for over a year and was very disappointed in the taste. Definitely not worth the money we spent.

What an amazing experience! Great food and service. Just the right amount of food. Our sommelier was very knowledgeable of the wines and pairing with the food. Must do the tasting menu “Alla Familia” with wine pairing. I’d have to say it’s one of my favorite restaurants in Saskatoon. Will definitely go back next time we’re in Saskatoon.

Excellent (exceptional!!) food and service. Very knowledgeable staff. Not an inexpensive meal, but the creative dishes and wonderful flavours make it well worth the price. We had the seven course alla famiglia option. The chef’s choices were perfect and every course was stellar. Small and intimate; not suitable for large parties (more than eight) and not appropriate for very young children. My only criticism is that the background music is a little too loud. Once the restaurant filled up, it was difficult to carry on a conversation. Love the eclectic decor and table settings.

Have been here a few times now and the food is consistently original and of high quality. The service is friendly without being overbearing. The wine-list is strong on Italian wines and not the usual suspects - refreshing, although the wines are a bit pricey.

Great experience. I didn't realize that a 5:45 pm reservation would not allow access to the large menu. It might have been nice to know that ahead of time. Otherwise a fantastic experience.

This is our fourth visit to LIttle Grouse and our final dinner here in Saskatoon before we move back home. Over the last couple years, I have found that while the service has always been excellent, the quality and portions have steadily dropped. A bit disappointing as Little Grouse was our favorite Italian restaurant in the entire country.

This dinner was an absolutely incredible experience. Me and a friend both had the large Alla Famiglia menu and it was amazing how consistently delicious all of the dishes were. It was a very expensive meal but I think it was more than worth the price point. The servers and staff were also very attentative and hospitable, I absolutely plan on returning in the future.

Some of the best food I've had in Saskatoon. Food that makes you want to eat slow. We each had an appetizer and a pasta and were both full by the end , which is not always the case with fine dining. Staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable. All in all a great experience

Great food as always! I love the family style dining. My only recommendation for the restaurant would be that they make the portion sizes a bit bigger. We came home and had toast because we were still a bit hungry. Still my favorite restaurant in town though.

My colleague and I ordered a la carte. I had the octopus appetizer and a pasta dish. The portions were tiny and the food was uninteresting. The wine was expensive and not very good. Overall, I was disappointed. I spent over $130 and left hungry.
