When the food is so good you forget to take a group photo.

Finally made it to @vonderfels with @its_lmjf @ariacamie for one of the best dinners of my life

The nice thing about eating with friends and sharing is that you can order more!

[1] Sausage Stuffed Morels with fresh peas and a poached egg: this was so fresh and had the right balance of salt and umami. The egg was perfect and soft
[2] Tempura Green Tomato & Mortadella sandwiches: the tomato was nice and firm and a bit tart, the mortadella was salty and smooth, and the tempura crust was crispy and light
[3] Wild Squid with haskap aguachile: the most perectly cooked squid I have ever had. So tender, and the tempura tentacles were crispy and chewy and light. The aguachile was the best part - sweet with a hint of spice, and roasted tomatoes and cucumber for freshness
[4] Miso Sablefish with tempura 🍤, artichokes, and matsutake beurre blanc: I will dream about this dish for a long time. The sablefish was flaky and moist with a crispy crust, the prawns were light and stayed crispy, and we nearly drank the sauce
[5] Ribeye with armanagc-peppercorn sauce: I am so glad I added this after wondering if we had enough food. A perfect medium rare, the steak melted in my mouth and I could have drunk the gravy
[6] Ginger Yuzu Panacotta with Rhubarb Granita - this was a surprisingly light dessert and the perfect end to our meal. The panacotta was smooth and creamy and was balanced well the rhubarb granita

I wish we could eat here again but we will definitely follow these chefs to their next place!

Superb experience in both service as well as our dinner. The atmosphere and music made us feel as though we were temporarily transported to my favorite city in Canada - Montreal. The care and attention offered our party was deeply appreciated, especially as we were introducing Bar Von Der Fels to our nephew Connor - a young gentleman who also loved the unique experience we had.

Thank you to Will and the team in the kitchen for preparing such inventive combinations of flavours to lift our spirits at this unique time in our history. We will return before the doors close and look forward to our next experience with you!

Perfect ambiance and some of the best food I have ever tasted. Challenging to find, small off the beaten path. Part of the charm. Owner operator, amazing with names and memory. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. Well priced. Perfect really.

Our experience at Von Der Fels was fantastic. We enjoyed all of the items we ordered and wished we could order everything else on the menu! The staff was super friendly and accommodating. We also felt they were following COVID-19 safety standards and didn't leave with any concerns. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for your next night out!

We went there on a Wed night, it was full. We had the pizza as a starter, the squid, pork belly and lamb to share. Food was amazing, possibly the best I have had in yyc. Service was pretty good too, our water was always filled, ambience was good as well. I would say we really enjoyed the dinner! Would definitely come back!

The hasselback potatoes are one of the best dishes I’ve ever had anywhere in the world (we travel to enjoy great food and music). I’m very glad they brought it back as a regular menu item. Also had the pork belly, sablefish and cod cheeks which were all divine. VDF is truly a worthy of a Michelin star - if only they awarded them here.

Amazing as always! Will, Bryan, Douglas and the rest of the team are experts in their craft. New menu additions are amazing - bison tartare hand roll, cod cheek tempura, broccoli with egg noodles, romaine lettuce (sounds boring - trust me it’s not. One of the best salads I’ve had). The stand out dish was the sablefish with tempura shrimp and artichokes - order it, you won’t be disappointed.
