    The new spring/summer 2024 food menu is fantastic. Beef carpaccio, oyster mushrooms, rotolo and très leches are a must. Maria have fantastic service.

    This place was a complete surprise and really great. From the street level it does not look that inviting but once inside (we sat downstairs). Ambience was great and food and service were exceptional. Lots of excellent gluten free choices as well.

    We had an absolutely lovely time here last Friday sitting in the bar area enjoying a few late evening cocktails. As this was my first time here and being a movie buff, we HAD to sit in the infamous lounge area downstairs. I could have looked around at all the details for hours and will return just to look around more. The staff were all so wonderful, our server was an absolute delight, she was engaging, knowledgeable and made some killer recommendations for cocktails - the Hasta La Vista was SO GOOD. We had dined elsewhere so I didn't try any food, but what was coming out to other patrons looked great. I will absolutely go back to give the menu a try and check out a few more cocktails.

    We celebrated my husband’s birthday at The Wednesday Room and had a really wonderful experience. I told them that it was his birthday when I made the reservation on open table. They brought us each a complimentary glass of Prosecco right away. The service was great and so was the food. Thanks for making our evening special!

    Emily was outstanding! Lovely dinner out. We tried the burrata (a must!) and went for the chicken & mash (wonderful) and risotto (giant portion, was alright). Next time we will try more of the various plates to share. Drinks are pricey but worth it, very delicious. Ambiance is great, does get a bit loud and it's mostly moody lighting. Complimentary birthday Prosecco was great! Can't wait to return.

    I enjoyed my first experience at The Wednesday Room. The ambiance is perfect for a date or a friendly get-together, the servers- incredibly attentive, and the overall noise level- tolerable. Food was a little off for both my date and me, but our server made every effort to make it better. Left wanting to come back another night!

    The booking was easy the front staff were very kind and knowledgeable. The waitress we had was patient and answered all our questions she was very good with recommendations, she even modified our bill when there was an issue in the kitchen that caused longer than normal wait time. I highly recommend everyone eat here you won’t be disappointed.

    The food and atmosphere is great. Service was ok, only complaint I have is that there was a charge for bringing outside dessert to the restaurant and it was $3 per person. We were a group of 5 that ordered tons of food and was celebrating a birthday - I even put a note on the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and only one staff member said happy birthday - and that was it. I even told the waitress that was serving us that it was a birthday and there was nothing special done. Disappointed because I really liked Wednesday Room but just appalled at the fact that we were charged $3 per person for bringing outside dessert and no one really acknowledged that it was a birthday celebration.

    We came to enjoy YYC experience dinner and it was excellent! A big shoutout to the whole front of the house, as after we came in, we had asked for a table downstairs. It was shortly offered to us, although it was a busy night. Every single person was candid and caring. Our servers (as we spent some time in 2 different sections) were attentive, timely, and caring - and truly ensured we had a great experience. Food was very good, and drinks were outstanding. Thank you Wednesday Room crew for a great night. We will be back

    We did the YYC exp. The food was just ok. Soup was just a tad too spicy and this is coming from a girl who loves spice. The steak was just that. Steak. It really did not have any great seasoning and they did not ask how you would like it cooked. The fries were ok but overly salty. The plate needed something fresh on it to cute through the fat and heaviness.

    Lunch left a bad taste in my mouth, literally and figuratively. I had the Tuna Frites, which was refrigerated spoiled fish served in a hot sauce. The experience further soured when I brought it to their attention: - the manager patronizing explained the temperatures of the food (which did not correspond to what I was eating) - the chef aggressively confronted me with a piece of raw fish and crème brûlée (?) to show me what food looked like before it was cooked. At no point did any of the 3 people in the escalation chain confirm the fish was prepared today. The Wednesday Room will serve you old food, and aggressively defend their intent to do so.

    We had the Wagu burger and the steak sandwich. The bread on the steak sandwich was very soggy that I couldn't eat it. The steak was sliced into pieces instead of one piece. Also aver cooked a bit.

    Second time coming here, my friends and I returned for the food and ambience hoping for better service than our previous visit. Our server came to the table right as we arrived, we needed a few minutes to check the menu and make some decisions which we only needed about five minutes to do. We watched our server behind the bar, possibly sampling different types of liquor? For about 15 minutes and by this point we were quite eager to order but he kept his back to us most of the time, occasionally turning around to mix a drink but not looking up at any of his tables. We eventually flagged down a manager so that we could order our drinks and food. We were then charged for a bottle of wine that was $30 more expensive than what we had specifically ordered/pointed to on the menu but they did rectify this afterwards. I’m just not sure if it’s worth coming back a third time, I love the decor and food but service has been sub par both times.

    We had the Prix Fixed and it was good. The steak was decent, the soup and salad were wonderful, and the fries were exceptional…but the tuna was very overcooked. And the speed the food came out was not reflective of a downtown lunch.
