Service & location was excellent. It was nice to use the outside deck with views of park & river. They offer full gluten free menu selections. Over all, Food was very good. We do recommend.

We really enjoyed the food. We would have preferred to sit outside as it was a nice evening but didn't have this option. Inside was a little bland but Covid is just about over.

From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with a friendly welcome by the hostess and shown to our table on the patio. John went above and beyond to accommodate our vegetarian guests and ensure we had a very tailored dining experience. He made outstanding recommendations and the chefs were able to modify dishes to suit our dietary needs. Thanks so much, Shift!

We had the reservation for 11am but by the time our food came it was 12:15. Server was very nice but the wait for food was outrageous. Food is overpriced for what they serve.

Although my steak was cooked perfectly, I thought that they could have used a better cut beef for the $45. Beautiful location

I had put instructions in for a special occasion but the server did not read the instructions and even after I told her to check the instructions she didn’t follow through.

We had a beautiful lunch on the deck with the sun shining . Shift has a very unique outstanding menu and have been here twice in the last month because the meals are so tastefully done and delicious. Kudos to the Chef and staff for making this restaurant a true class act in downtown Saskatoon! Highly recommend to sit on the deck and enjoy the beautiful riverbank and be treated by great staff!

9th Birthday celebration with grandparents. Staff made her feel very special and she was so happy. Food was great but hamburger very messy to eat. Good kids menu. A little expensive. Definitely will come again to enjoy the outside patio. Wait staff did an excellent job. Am looking forward to visiting the art gallery soon.

The calamari is grilled instead of battered and deep fried and it is absolutely delicious! Everything we ate was seasoned beautifully and the caesars were very tasty. I always love eating here, especially with the river views!

Ambiance of a hospital and food of that of a cafeteria. White plain walls. Cheap tables. Plating is amateur and awkward. Ordered pork shoulder. Service in a tiny cast iron pan. Cannot cut it without your side spilling out the side. Ordered “charred” calamari When something is charred on expects that not alimony boiled chewy squid bathed in olives. Olives are not even mentioned in the description. Music is repetitive with no soul. Do better. Will not ever be back.

Our dishes were outstanding and unique, as was our appetizer. Did not have room for dessert, but really wanted to try one. Next time, perhaps! Service was fantastic - friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend to self-proclaimed “foodies” or anyone looking to enjoy a nice night out.
