    Great food, great drinks, friendly staff cool atmosphere. Wine selections is good, but by the glass selection is fairly small. However, the ones they do have are very good.

    I love Smokey Bear. Last night we sat at the bar, and experienced the Chef Tasting Menu with Matching Wines. Everything was perfectly executed, perfectly delicious. I cannot recommend Smokey Bear enough, we are lucky to have them here in Edmonton.

    Where to even begin. The service was AMAZING! Hands down the most interactive wonderful service I have ever had. The food, words cannot even describe the effort and amazing experience put into every plate. An explosion of flavors in your mouth. The knowledge regarding wines and wine paring was exceptional. Highly highly recommend this amazing little discovery.

    Top 5 of my favorite restaurants. We are from France and we are used to try many restaurants, especially Michelin Star ones. This one needs your interest. The cuisine is very interesting, very surprising and mastered tastes. The service was perfect, the waitresses are very professional, know their job and are passionate and it shows. We really spent an excellent evening accompanied by professionals who allow us to discover a new cuisine. You won't be disappointed.

    Amazing experience as always. We ordered nearly one of everything off the menu and it was all cooked just perfectly. Huge fan of the beef cheeks - worth a try. Service was also exceptional - great wine pairings and company. I love how the crew at Smokey Bear executes. Huge props and big thanks !

    Wife and I went for Valentine’s Day night out. Been to the Smokey Bear multiple times and have never had a bad bite. The thought behind the menu and use of local ingredients make it a truly unique dining experience. Best Old Fashioned cocktail in YEG!

    For Valentine’s Day 2021 we did the tasting menu. There was one item that I knew my husband would like but I wouldn’t, so I asked if they could substituted (if not he would just eat it) and they did without hesitation. This is our second time dining here, both times we did the tasting menu. It has not disappointed either time. The pork chop was my husbands favourite dish. Mine was the pork belly (which was our substitution) and the white chocolate custard dessert. It was so delicious, great textures, beautiful plating, the entire meal was awesome!

    Excellent! We went with my husband for the first time here. My husband was considered, as he saw pictures online, that everything was burnt ☺️ But everything that we ordered was super super super tasty!!!! The service is great! You can see that the chef was working in Europe. We just wait for new menu to come back👌

    My significant other and I enjoyed the chef's menu, the food was good but seemed to be in unfinished thought, not deserving of the high price. The sommelier made a fantastic wine suggestion that was superb for the meal. As an easy coaster I was baffled when we were servered scallops from the PEI side of the bay of Fundy.... As that doesn't exist. The meal was good, but it was not as good as the price of the meal would have suggested

    Had a fabulous birthday dinner here. Service went above and beyond, loved the wine list and expertise, and the food is exquisite - Loads of awesome local ingredients. There is nothing like a restaurant that is owned, operated, and staffed with people who have a passion for flavours and the fun experience of dining. An absolute pleasure!
