Food and wine were absolutely stellar. We were so impressed with everything we had, from our appetizer, to our wines, dessert and cocktails, everything was so good. Ambience is great.
Service is ok. Could be improved and was a bit distracting to see all the servers doing shooters every 20 minutes which took away from the professionalism in a place of that caliber.

Great food. Mediocre service, quick but not engaging or knowledgeable. It was out first time there so we asked for recommendations and the server had none. Bartender Carter was great. Kitchen staff were awesome to interact with. Hugely overpriced. Four florets of broccoli for $17 seems a little over the top. Hassleback potatoes covered in crab sauce were so delicious, but not worth $34. If that’s your jam and you make a ton of money, go for it. If you work for a living, go somewhere else.

We had got the take out meal a few times but this was our first time to the restaurant. Everything is so flavourful, you can’t go wrong. We aren’t eating out often due to COVID so when we do go it has to be worth it. Definitely will be back again!

Their food is absolutely delicious and amazing and judging based solely on the food, I can understand why they are in the Canada top 100 list. However, as a restaurant on the list, I was very disappointed in the level of service and professionalism of the front of house staff compared to many other top 100 restaurants. Our table may have been a one off and slipped through the cracks but it still left me feeling like the experience as a whole could have been a lot better. The front of house team needs to be more cohesive.

For example: We noticed that when other tables were sat down, the staff would give a welcome introduction and tell them about the menu but we never received that. The service also suffered from each table not having a dedicated server which made it feel impersonal. Cutlery and dishes would get cleared from our table but not replaced before the next courses came so we sat around just staring at our food for a bit. Also as a whole, the two servers had similar attire with a dark vneck and jeans but the bartender's outfit looked extremely unprofessional. His shirt and jeans were baggy and really stood out from the other staff.

Overall, our table felt neglected with much to be wanted in terms of service but I have to reiterate that the food is absolutely phenomenal.

Von Der Fels never ceases to amaze when we visit. They have a new menu that is fantastic, and everything we tried impressed us. The hassleback potatoes are a must and the charcoal pork lettuce wraps definitely blew us away. Wine list is also well thought out and gives plenty of options for any taste. Can’t wait to come back!

Von der fels is always a special spot to visit, this time was no exception. Will and his team are always switched on providing the best and greatest service in the city!
Green tomato and mortadella tempura sandwich was killer, sour, fatty, salty, and oozing with cheese!
Buratta fritta with fresh tomatoes and an eggplant purée was heaven.
Hasslebacked potatoes, which has become a staple on the menu is worthy of the spot! Creamy, salty, and that brown butter!!!
Pork toro lettuce wraps were bang on as well!
To finish the hot chocolate bread pudding was perfectly light but also rich with flavour!
