We shared the kale salad, the broccoli, the gnocchi, and the pork. Everything was amazing .....we even got a second of the kale salad instead of dessert.... it was that good!!
Service was very good. Highly recommend this place but suggest a reso as it is very small.

For fine dining we were sadly disappointed, we were seated at a table that was situated in the middle of the room with traffic on both sides, number of times we were bumped by servers and passing visitors, the menu didn’t accurately depict the ingredients. we ordered the soup and I stopped my husband as I could see it was certainly cream based. When we informed the server that the menu was misleading she then stated that it was our fault for not letting her know about the lactose issue. ( menu said nothing about dairy on this item) luckily I have no issues with lactose so I enjoyed the one order of soup. However the server did not recommend a solution or an option to choose an alternative. Next came our goat cheese salad the server then asked if we were ok with goat cheese, we informed her yes because goat cheese does not contain lactose... this was a surprise that she was uneducated about food when working in fine dining. Luckily the rest of our dishes were very good. As for setting I was disappointed that the Decor was lacking and there were numbers of screws and plaster sticking out on the walls. Going to pay for the bill we were charged additionally for the soup as it stated for two, however we only wanted one order and this was very misleading. The food was what saved this place, however we will not return or recommend.

First time to Bundok and it was a set menu as it was Valentine's Day. It was really well executed from ordering ease to timing of each course. Bundok chef's and staff did a really wonderful job working together and ensuring we had a great experience. Great cook on all items and the specialty cocktails were super yummy! Looking forward to going back on a regular evening and trying the regular menu!

I found the food excellent, but my dining partner thought portions of the hen we ordered were slightly undercooked. The tables are close together, so while the server was talking to a neighbouring table, her voice was loud enough to compete with and sometimes drown out our conversation.

Very nice dinner. The wait staff were attentive and no obtrusive. Our top-up of wine was free, because it was the last of the bottle and they didn't have any more, so that was a very nice touch.

The beet salad was a lovely presentation with wonderful flavours.

The other dishes were all enjoyable. However, they might have relied a bit too much on salt and fat to enhance the flavours.

I expect that we will go back.

I was disappointed after such great reviews, most of our dishes were over salted and there was a long lag between courses which ended with out pork being overcooked and dry. It may have been an off night but with so many great options in the city I will give it a pass for next time.

Overall, our experience was fantastic. We will certainly return for more. Only criticism we have would be that some of the dishes were salted a bit on the heavier side but still good nonetheless.

Good ambiance in good location. The food was inspired and good, although the duck was over seasoned with salt. The cocktail list and bar selection is well done and the cocktails are very good. The wine list is brief - it could use some expansion. The service is very poor. We sat for 15 minutes before being greeted. Questions about the cocktail list and meals were found to be annoying and responded to curtly. This establishment is unique in that it charges for tastes off their "by the glass list". This list is not made up of stellar or well known wines. Therefore we asked for assistance to guide us. This was an inconvenience to the server. When we described what we liked she pointed to one wine. When asked to describe she said; "Well, this wine maker makes red wines and white wines - so he is very good. It is full bodied. You will like it." My wife pursued more information and it only got worse. We elected to taste and she said she would see IF this was possible? It was. In sum, every request of the staff was an apparent burden on them. Solution: delegate the current staff to runners and have one other person managing customer service. If you are going to charge for tastes off your wine list and you hire people that don't have the faintest idea about wine - provide descriptions - a very cheap fix. Overall the experience was good but the service was truly grade-school at best.

The gnocchi is amazing. I love the idea of share plates. They are all done so well that you cannot go wrong. Been here multiple times and always leaving satisfied and wanting to go back. The beautiful intimate restaurant is better for small groups.

Best food I've had in Edmonton in the nearly 2 years I've lived here. Shared 7 dishes and every single one was expertly composed, balanced, seasoned and presented. I was not blown away by the service or the volume of the music, but I will 100% be back for the food.

I went to this restaurant with 3 friends for a birthday dinner and was blown away by the amazing food! We had counter seating which I worried might be awkward for talking, but it wasn’t bad and there was plenty of space for all the food. The gnocchi, beef tartar and citrus posset were definitely highlights. For the quality of the food, the prices are very reasonable. The cocktails were also delicious! I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Highly recommend - there's a reason this restaurant is so hard to get into and has such a good reputation - it's amazing! The service was a bit slow at the beginning to get our drinks but other than that it was amazing!

the food is amazing. The top sirloin and grilled broccli I fell in love with. I just wish I had known how small this restaurant was. Hard not to get bumped by the waitress walking by you because of how small the location is. It's really good place so its also packed.

The food was all amazing. Our waitress was knowledgeable and super helpful with the menu. This spot is pretty small. We were seated at the end of one of the bar seating options and my husband was repeatedly bumped into by passers by. I would maybe just omit the end seat to avoid this slightly negative aspect. Otherwise thoroughly enjoyed my time.

Food was prepared and presented to perfection. We were a group of four that almost tried everything on the menu. Cocktails were tasty but be prepared for a hefty bill. Ours was $520.00 but that did include 6 cocktails and 2 bottles of wine.

Food was good, a little salty for my taste, but still enjoyable. Service was great. I enjoyed the quieter venue but tables are very close together. We were seated close to the door and I did freeze all night so maybe not the best place in the middle of winter but otherwise the proximity to the door didn’t bother me. Overall a good experience

After seeing the rave recommendations, my husband and I were so excited to take my parents to Bundok when we were in Edmonton. What a letdown. When we arrived, the server at the front door, who turned out to be our server, sort of half-motioned toward a coat rack. She did not know anything about the wines when I asked for recommendations, and was mostly absent throughout our meal. Her attitude seemed to be, "God, are you still here?" even before we'd ordered. There were not many people in the restaurant so it's not like she was stressed. Just could not have been less interested in helping us, recommending things, or just generally making this a pleasant evening out. I'm really not sure how this place ended up on the Canada's Top 100 list, but it certainly didn't rank in the 50 or so restaurants I've been to in Edmonton in the last 5 years.

We had an amazing experience as always at Bündok. The service drinks and food were all amazing to the point where we ran out of words to describe how good the food was!
We had the chicken skins, Parmesan soup (an ABSOLUTE must), gnocchi, and hen and we were delighted with every dish.
One of my favourite places in Edmonton and would without hesitation recommend this to anyone looking for an amazing experience all around.

We were seated promptly and recieved very good service. Our server was very helpful in terms of figuring out the right amount of food as the menu is predominantly share plates. Our meal consisted of 7 savory dishes + 2 desserts shared among 5 people. Everything was absolutely delectable and it was fun to try so many flavours in a single meal. Plenty of local ingredients and a decent wine list.

Personnel could be more inviting and explain the menus better. Cauliflower dish was grainy and didn’t have a great flavour but everything else was delicious.
