Service was excellent and it was game night so the joint was hopping. Our server was awesome. Prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. Will be back for sure.

Great having the Guru experience both downtown and in the west end. It’ll be great before a game or concert and will be great on a hot summer day on their deck (I’m thing Spinach Chat and a Cold Beer). Lots of new items to try as well as a few of our favourites.

Service could be better, the server was all over the place. Waited 20 minutes for the waitress to find a bartender to pour our drinks, she said the bartender was MIA. Food was excellent, and wished I could have eaten more.

Terrible service but nice ambience and tasty food. Ordered a glass of wine and after watching our waitress try to find the right bottle while we ate half of our lunch it finally appeared. Rice came when 2/3 done our lunch. I wouldn’t go back for a few months while they fix their service issues.

Guru 170th is amazing and somehow they managed to improve on that formula. It is beautifully decorated with the downtown ultra high end feel. The food is phenomenal! Perfect for a date night or special occasion- we loved it!

Been a fan of their west location for a long time, was so happy to see them open up in the Ice District.

This location is even better than the original. Why? Location, beautiful space, couple of nice private dining spaces, extensive/thoughtful/well-priced wine list. Same great service and beautiful food. And a really nice bar for single diners or pre-meal cocktails. You can even watch the game there.

And Gurjeet is such a gracious host. A win for downtown Edmonton for sure.
