Excellent service, amazing wine menu and great food :)
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!
Such a great and unique spot in Edmonton. Cannot recommend it enough. Food is imaginative and delicious. The wine list, along with the servers knowledge of the wine, is fantastic. Cocktails are spot on as well. Great people, great food. Eat here.
First time here and we’ll definitely be back to have some of the items from the menu we missed!
We did the tasting menu and it was lovely and super tasty. They made substitutions for me on a dish and brought extra accoutrements when needed. It was delicious and I would definitely go back again!!!
My favourite restaurant in Edmonton! Always a treat with the most scrumptious dishes and an exceptionally well chosen wine and liquor list. All the staff are awesome! Can’t wait until I can go again!
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👌
Unbelievable food. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable and friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed. I can't wait to go 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
Great food and service. Unique and interesting wine list.
Terrific food, always inventive use of tasty local ingredients. Relaxed atmosphere, just go and enjoy!
Very good service with a limited menu. The Chef's table was very good. Need more non-meat options on the A La Carte menu.
Smokey Bear was an excellent experience. I recommend you sit at the bar and take it all in! The food was fantastic and the restaurant staff were super friendly and made you feel at home. We would go back for sure! Make sure you order the flatbread and the pork chop!! Loved it!
We chose the chef choice dinner menu. Every course was excellent. We will be back again.
Food was absolutely amazing,
Service was great. We had a wonderful evening
Delicious! The food was so amazing when we dined at Smokey Bear. The tartare was amazing! I liked the decor, as well. :)
Excellent service, neat wine list, good cocktails, and inventive food! I think this place is just going to keep getting better and better...and it is already unreal!
Portions were small.
It was an outstanding meal. Riley, Campbell and Dennis can sure cook. The Two Jillians took care of all our beverage needs and created a great social environment! SB is a must experience spot!
Love this place. It is one of Edmonton’s very best.
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!
Fantastic and thoughtful dishes. Nice to see people care very much about the ingredient sourcing as well as the dining experience. We will be back!
Solid place, really enjoyed the experience. The pork chop and short rib were to die for. Great wine too, will definitely be back.
The staff is attentive. They explain where the ingredients come from. It is an extremely amazing experience. The food is to die for. Just a fabulous evening
Always an interesting choice to dine out with locally sourced products for tapas. A great addition to the Edmonton food restaurant scene to get away from the usual pub style food and steak. The tapas are extremely flavourful and served like food art on wonderful pottery.
The wine and cocktail list is short and very overpriced. ($16 for Aperol Spritz)
Our meal consisted of 6 oysters and boy were they fresh but $25 is a bit much. A flatbread similar to Naan with a couple of spreads (sausage was good but sour cream not so much) about $16, 3 mushrooms over a garlic paste...very good but not worth $23 and finally a pork chop that was tasty but again not worth $36.
the concept is ok, food items were good but price point not worth it IMO.
Good food, friendly staff. It's a little barren inside, but that's probably COVID. They accommodated our group well and we'll definitely be back in the future.
Enjoyed an incredible evening on the back patio: took two newcomers (& a seasoned Smokey Bear veteran) and explored the chef’s tasting menu over three hours of conversation. Each dish was presented exquisitely, but somehow managed to taste even better. The shrimp and mushroom dumplings were too die for, and the chef generously added the scallop ceviche to our plates. After many visits, this was a favourite tasting menu as the summer produce has arrived at Smokey Bear. Thank you for a wonderful evening!
Great food and excellent service. A must for foodies in Edmonton.
Food was delicious but the portions were really small. They sell you the idea of a family style dinner but the portions are personal.
Flavour was great but we were still hungry after spending 150 bucks in food. That’s just not fair.
The food was so outstanding + the portions were perfect. We loved that the food was interesting but accessible and ultimately, so delicious. We will definitely be back!
Awesome food, amazing service!
Outstanding service, amazing food.
Phenomenal. Great food, great staff, great experience. Really interesting and unique wines.
Chef Riley and his team makes every dining experience unique with their ever changing innovative menu with spectacular natural wines to choose from
Recommend doing the chefs seating to enjoy the full experience
Always a delight to see what's new on the every changing local tapas menu.
Never disappointed with the tasty dishes that are a good size for sharing.
Went to celebrate new job for my partner. Food and drinks were amazing! Wonderful service, took time to explain everything to us and the story behind the food! Sat on the patio, which was a bit noisy due to traffic, but we enjoyed it.
Tasting menu was excellent! Highly recommend it. Cocktails were good, beer selection nice. didn't check out the wines.
