I was a little hesitant with the menu as I am a very simple eater - but it was amazing. The poutine and brussel sprouts were awesome and my boyfriend said the waygu burger was unreal. Our waiter was very friendly and recommended everything we got. Really cool place too - loved the vibe.

The only reason we gave this a 4 star instead of 5 is that they cancelled our reservation after we had already dined there. This took the points we were supposed to accumulate away and I'm not sure if it saves them a service fee, but I thought it was strange. The food was fantastic, service was the same!!

Service was really slow. Seemed like a lot of servers were standing around in the back but it still took a while to get waters and place our orders. The brunch foods were pretty good though. I ordered the prime rib hash and enjoyed the Brussels sprouts and mashed potato bed. Some items in my family’s dishes were overly salty or way too sweet (i.e the beans). We didn’t really like the “new wave coffee” that they serve since it tastes really sour, but our server assured us that that is how it’s supposed to taste. My mom ended up switching her drink and Dad decided to try and finish his coffee. Not bad overall, and may go back another time to try their other dishes.

Hello, being an open concept it seems we gave you a bad impression of our service team on your visit. I would also like to apologize if some service details were missed. I'll be sure to let the brunch team aware of this feedback. As for Rogue Wave coffee please let me know the next time you visit DOSC and I will ensure to have a barista guide you to a coffee you enjoy. After all the best coffee is your coffee! I can be reached at william@dosc.ca. Thank you for your time in reviewing us. -William

Was recommended to try the poutine by a friend and it did no disappoint! So flavourful and delicious! Also tried the crispy chicken and it was tender and juicy. The skin was perfectly crisp and I would recommend this dish as well as the gnocchi as a side. Was a tad bit let down by the brussels sprouts. They were a bit too burnt for my liking and it overpowered the natural flavour of the sprouts. They were still tasty and I enjoyed taking them to work the next day as leftovers. Only real complaint was that the skirt steak my friend ordered was cold when I tried it (which was about 5 mins after it arrived to the table). You get value for your money at DOSC and I would highly recommend this restaurant!

We have made DOSC ‘the’ place to meet for lunch, but have again been disappointed that there was not soup on the menu. The server suggested that the reason for this was that winter is over but it was cold out and soup would have been welcomed. Besides that, the soup that we have had there has always been so good that we would order it even in hot weather. Perhaps the chef could be convinced that soup is a terrific lunch meal for many.

Loved DOSC’s dinner menu: the waygu check small plate alone is worth visiting to taste.

Waygu ribeye cut was perfectly cut and seasoned; by far the best steak we’ve had in Edmonton. Quite enjoyable- wine menu isn’t extensive but did feature a worthwhile Malbec.

The white chocolate blondie won over the sabayon tart, but overall a good end to the meal.

A very unique combination of yin-yang in this sober/indulgent atmosphere.

Greeting/Seating was welcoming and expedient. Originally, seated in a busier section, a request to move to a more personal setting was fulfilled thankfully.

Drinks are unique and flavourful. Selection, would be confusing to someone unfamiliar with some of the ingredients and the double edge sword of such unique drinks is there menu doesn't really have a "go to" for those who don't want to engage in asking about menu items. A mojito, an old fashioned, then maybe some more unique drinks.

The food was great and portions were fair, recommend the Brussel Sprouts, they have just a special touch to them that's easier to taste then explain. A trip to the restroom lets you walk past the meats and really tempts you tackle that Tomahawk just for the picture.

The only area for improvement I saw was in the timing of the approach of the server. He approached quickly and didn't really allow time for the conversation to pause upon his arrival. Asking for a couple minutes to finish our conversation he didn't return 20 minutes. No negative attitude and he was polite, it's just best to allow a second or two to pause the conversation at the table, rather than interject.

Overall experience was great and would gladly return to experience more of the menu.

The host was good, our server was terrible. She didn't know much about the menu items, forgot things, & mostly left us to ourselves. The person who dropped off some of our food, Matt, was lovely & was the first person to ask how everything was (we already had some dishes at that point).

There wasn't anything above mediocre, at best, in terms of food. We had six dishes in total. Fried brussel sprouts were raw & bland. Tartare had no punch & what flavour was there masked the beef. The beets were bland & missing the caramelized flavour that comes from roasting. The cream on top had no flavour & dulled the beets even more. The flank had none of the promised smokey flavour, or much flavour for that matter, though cooked perfectly. The gnocchi was heavy, overworked, &, again, bland. Best part of that dish (& our whole meal) were the mushrooms, which were the same as the mushroom dish we also ordered.

I've seen good reviews, but this was just one disappointment after another. Everything was beautiful to look at, all but one dish was bland & in distinct contrast to the visuals.

High price point with the potential to be great but fails to meet the mark. Great quality beef but sliced for you so the steak cools down super quick and the fat cap isn’t seared so it’s rubbery instead of melt in your mouth delicious. At a price of $70 for a 9 oz steak, it was a big disappointment. Service was cold and snooty, food took over an hour to come despite restaurant being half empty, and sides were underwhelming and small. Ambiance is nice but wouldn’t return. Have had much better steaks for a lower price including a wonderful brant lake wagyu at the Red Ox Inn that was prepared perfectly.

We liked the ambience of the restaurant. However, we ordered our steaks medium-rare and they arrived medium-well. That’s a real no-no for a place that calls itself a craft steakhouse. The cocktails, wine, and sides were all very good. We’ll give this restaurant one more try, but if the steak is improperly cooked again it will be our last visit.

Loved the ambiance and cool vibe resonating through the wood and brick interior!

The gentlemen host and bartender were excellent and made us feel like friends returning for dinner.

When we seated for dinner our service level slid to “fair” at best. I had to ask for water three times before receiving a glass and our waitress seemed to forget we were there as we asked to take our time. Ordered a bottle of wine and after pouring a sample to taste she didn’t come back once to top us our glasses.

We went for the Tomahawk and we disappointed that they just ran out but they had a 50oz Poterhouse in its place. Decided to order a side of mushrooms and beets to accompany the beef. Prior to cooking the thick slab of a T-bone our waitresses paraded it to our table and we were IMPRESSED with the size and quality of the cut.

When the returned cooked beef returned to the table I am disappointed to say they there wasn’t much flavour and although we ordered it medium rare it came back medium to well and was lukewarm in temperature. The beets were an enjoyable different type of side dish and the mushrooms were delicious but lukewarm as the beef.

There are many moving parts to a restaurant and I know not every meal is perfect so will give it another try due to its cool vibe and setting.
