I can’t praise my server Marc enough! Super friendly and offered great suggestions on food, but his wine pairing suggestions were on point. Fantastic! Highly recommend this lovely little restaurant and hopefully you get the pleasure of Marc being your server.

Food was very tasty! We had the 4 course meal with the wine pairing. Great service- server was very knowledgeable. Sort of wish the piece of trout was a bit bigger!

Seriously not good food.at.all!
Ordered spaghetti carbonara and ravioli.
My 10 year old could make these dishes better.
All you get is an unappealing bowl of spaghetti
with some strange sauce that tastes like - no words to describe the sauce.
My ravioli was tough as though it had dried out around the edges.
That was it - just another unappealing unappetizing bowl of ravioli.
I am not a chef but do know how to make excellent Italian food, the food I tried at this restaurant is not tasty at all.
Waste of my evening.

Had a lovely family thanksgiving celebration with our two daughters. Our appetizers were excellent - soft shelled crab and charcuterie board. Both very fresh and delicious. Our pasta selections were top notch. Mezzaluna, carbonara, ravioli with brown butter and sage, and pasta con vongole would all be dishes that I would recommend. The peanut butter budino was average at best. This is the second time we’ve had this dessert. The peanuts were rancid and the pudding did not have a lot of flavour. It was a bit better the first time, but still not good enough that I would order it again. My husband loves it, however! All in all, it was a great evening and we will be back.

This was our 4th meal at Little Grouse and it was excellent again! We have decided to invite 2 friends to join us the next time. I has the meatball starter which was just what I had hoped for - two large meatballs in a tomato sauce. My wife had the beef carpaccio. For main courses my wife had the brown trout which is similar to salmon and I had a lamb dish with an unprouncable name. We had a bottle of French wine which was good but pricey. While I understand that restaurants need to make money they need to go wth byob option wth a reasonable corkage fee.

The Waitress was phenomenal, She was very informative and knew her stuff. Were prices a little high, maybe, but in my opinion service is what dictates expensive dining. She passed with flying colors and deserved every bit of the tip my wife and I left. The food was amazing and presented very professionally. I was worried about being full at the end. My wife and I were not overfull but didn't feel the need to want more food either. It was absolutely perfect. We need more restaurants in this province like this one! 5 STAR!

Meh! Over priced for blandness. Uninspired reproduction of previous restaurants owned by same owners. The “minimalistic” Approach is played.

The only reason I would not recommend to friends is the noise factor. The food was good but we could not carry on a conversation due to the noise level

The service was good but the food was underwhelming. I had the risotto and it was decent flavour but the portion was too small for the price. The waitress explained their experience but the value wasn’t there in my opinion.

The food was superb but the restaurant was unbelievably noisy. It was very difficult to have a conversation without feeling like we were yelling. The noise level improved slightly when the server, at our request, turned down the volume of the music.

I have eaten here often and recommended to many friends. The whole experience has deteriorated, especially service which I understand on the evening was due to staff shortage, but that is not my problem as a paying guest. Food was a bit inconsistent. Main course and pasta good but starter and desert really very average.

Very good food. Portions could have been a tad larger, but ingredients were fresh and flavourful.
We felt a little rushed through our visit, but I would recommend to someone visiting Saskatoon in the future.

Just perfect! Tried new things (soft shell crab) and loved it! Loved how our experience was gently guided (4 service family style) with respect of my dietary restrictions.

Little Grouse on the Prairie is an overpriced restaurant with extremely small portions.
Unfortunately there is not even a little reward as the food was nearly universally bland.
This was my second visit and my experience was the same on both occasions.

Had the 6 course tasting with wine. Every dish was excellent and the wine pairing matched the dish perfectly, including a few wines I would not normally order.

I used to eat in fine dining and even in Europe ( I am from France ) the plates are not that smaller !!! I talked with some collègues from saskatoon who told me to not go there and didn’t understood why I went to this place because you still hungry after the restaurant !! Also it was my birthday and I made a reservation for that and my friend told the waitress but they didn’t done anything for me !!! Really bad experience! Fortunately we took a bottle of wine to forgot that we were hungry after 2 appetizers and mains courses ...

My husband and I were in Saskatoon for a few days and decided to try Little Grouse after recommendations from a friend and online reviews. We definitely enjoyed our evening. The service was superb and the food itself was excellent. My only complaint would be the portion sizes which were borderline too small. We had the 6 course tasting menu each and it was $170ish with tax and tip excluding beverages. For that price we both felt we should have been a bit more full than we were. We actually joked whether we were going to have to order pizza to our hotel later. For comparison, we had dinner at another Grassroots restaurant last week and with a shared appetizer and an entree I was fuller than with 6 courses here and going in with about the same level of hunger. We thought afterwards perhaps we should have either each ordered our own entree or done the 9 course tasting menu.

We were in Saskatoon for a wedding and had the most amazing experience at this restaurant. The service was excellent, server very helpful in explaining the 6 course meal, the food was very tasty, well presented and just the right portions. Will make an effort to go back there some time. Thank you!

The food was excellent. Service at start was slow then improved. Could of been a timing issue. Would highly recommend this restaurant overall. Restaurant may consider turning music down and have it as background music. Was hard to converse with others across the table.

Really nice restaurant with great ambiance. While it does not seat many people it makes for a much more intimate experience. My wife and I had the tasting menu with paired wines, all good choices. The food and service was well paced and very well described for each course.
We had a very lovely evening and I would recommend checking them out. Great experience.

From the moment we entered the restaurant, until we left, we felt special! The food was fantastic. The staff was very friendly. Any questions about the menu were answered pleasantly and with knowledge. It was a great Anniversary memory.
