First visit since the rebranding. Still offer the 6 and 8 course meals. We had the 6 course meal-2 appetizers, a fish dish, 2 pastas an entree and dessert. The appetizers were ok- nothing special. I’m not a scallops fan but it was a lovely presentation. The pasta and Risotto were excellent- best part of the meal. The beef tenders was cooked sous vide method and although it was tender, it lacked a bit of flavour and the greens served with it were very tough. Dessert was a fancy pudding in a jam jar- tasty but not the easiest to share.
Service as always was outstanding! Will try again as some of the menu items looked tempting and the pasta was excellent.

Disappointing Valentine’s Day meal. Little Grouse should just stick to what they do best, which is pasta.

We got the 6 course meal and every course was super delicious. Our favorites were the one of the starters (Burrata with grilled Ciabatta) and ESPECIALLY the dessert (Almond Oil Cake). We were talking about getting the 6 course meal again just to see what dishes they'd serve.

We had the 7-course small meal with the wine pairings, and it was worth every penny! The sommelier was great in accommodating our preferences in Portuguese wines. Every single bite and sip was an adventure for our taste buds.

Great food in a small setting. We had an excellent table but others might not be so lucky. The wine pairings and explanations were very good. A bit pricey, but worth it.

This was not our 1st visit to the restaurant however we were so disappointed it may be our last. When we arrived for our reservation there was 2 tables for 2 people available we were seated directly next to the door (it was like -21) I asked if we could sit at the other table and the hostess’ response was ‘that table is reserved’ I thought I had made a reservation too-hum. The food was as expected and before we had finished our dessert we were asked if we were ready for the bill-ok we still had drinks to finish but we can pay I guess. The part that completely ruined the evening was just as she walked away with the debit machine and we were still enjoying our drinks, part of our $200 bill we had just paid Mr. Highbun came to the table to let us know they needed our table for another reservation that would be coming in. McDonald’s doesn’t even ask you to leave if all you have is a dollar coffee and a muffin. I wanted to share this experience because my husband and I rarely come to the city without our children and on that specific evening I later broke my ankle and required surgery while skating at the Bessbrough but supper was the worst part of our date night. Thanks for the memories

This really is a great restaurant, but while the food was very good, it was not up to the excellent quality that it once was. I'm quite sorry to report this, but I must be honest.

Our first visit was for our anniversary. It was a great success. We had the familia service and the food was excellent. Only recommendation is to have a variety of protein. Our courses were all beef.

Fantastic!!! I loved it! When you book if in winter book a table in the restaurant not near the front door and window. Lovely to look at the passers by but we’re Australian it was cold.

First time at this restaurant. We ordered off the menu as we felt the combination offerings (4 course or 7 course groupings) would be a little pricey. However, at the end of the night it would have been approximately the same or even a little less to go with the combination options. Service was excellent, wine selection extensive and the staff was very knowledgable when it came to wine pairing with the food that was ordered. We found the music to be a little too loud for easy conversation so we requested it be turned down a bit and they did that for us.

Everytime we eat here it’s fantastic. We always do the la familia which gives us different tastes and meals which makes every meal an adventure. For an added bonus do the wine pairing (but get a cab home) as it adds that extra dimension.

Had an absolutely awesome time at Little Grouse. Everything was great as expected from other reviews. We were happy with everything however I can’t give five stars for value even though we were full at the end the meals portions were small but amazing so it is somewhat justified.

My boyfriend and I went for dinner for my birthday. It was our first time there and the waiter suggested we try alla famiglia. It was a great choice, we got to try a little bit of each course. The food was amazing and the waiters were knowledgeable. Will definitely be returning.

I simply adore this place!! I used to work there for a brief time and it is my number 1 go to for any occasion. The alga famila (sic) is a true experience focused around celebrating the craft and joys of food and food creation. It is a very unique dining experience in Saskatoon with no parallel. The folks in charge have always been exceptionally friendly and I feel good supporting local. It is a truly beautiful atmosphere with 2 sommeliers to make exceptional wine suggestions. My partner has been a professional cook for 5 years and this is one of the 3 places in town we dine at when we decide to eat out. Best Restaurant in Saskatoon in my opinion.
