Waalflower Kitchen & Cocktails
Our cocktail menu pairs classic cocktails with modern mixology offering light and uplifting creations. Our bartenders study, and carefully blend spirits together to create a third dimension that enables every cocktail on our list to explode with complexity and exceed all expectations.
It was our first visit. Thought we should try it. Our server was great, but the hostess was pretty abrupt bordering on rude. I’m not sure what about us seemed to turn her off but I did not feel welcome at all. Also, we were seated next to a loud birthday party with small children that was also close to the open kitchen. I did ask in my reservation for a quiet table if possible. This was the exact opposite. Not the date night I was hoping for on a Saturday night.
The food was tasty and the portions were large. I would have liked to have been asked if we wanted a half charcuterie or a full one - given the portion size and that we were also ordering main dishes. We were just given a full one. That said, the plate was good, although I would have liked to see more pickles (two small thin slices) and olives or even another type of mustard or preserve. Not a lot of accompaniment for the meat and toasts.
Overall, it was nice, but I am not sure if we will be back any time soon.

Great food, great cocktails, fun ambiance. Service was perhaps a little slow but didn’t detract from the evening. Would definitely recommend!
Hello Mike! Thank you for the review! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your dining experience with us, we will work on our speed!

Thank you for the great review! I hope we see you back soon! Haley Jarrett Assistant General Manager Haley@waalflower.ca
Great vibe, excellent service, wonderful food and great value.
Had the broccoli and poke bowls for appetizers, both were very good. Had grilled cheese for main, it was good but a lot of bread.
Glald you enjoyed the broccoli and poke bowls! Thank you for the feedback regarding the grilled cheese, we appreciate it!
Waiters were pleasant but slow.
Food was mediocre
Love this restaurant. The food is amazing! Highly recommend!
Great experience! The duck spring rolls and smoked pina colada were absolutely ah-mazing!!!
Cocktails were good but food was subpar. Lack of flavour and creativity in the menu. We ordered mussels and they came out cold and flavorless (it was removed from the bill).
All the staff were extremely friendly and kind. Offered opinions when asked.
The food was great and the cocktails were amazing. I look forward to coming back again!!
Very disappointed with Waalflower after reading the hype online. Ambiance was fine and service was good but the 3 shared plates we had were not good. We found the food very bland, notably the tartare and the meatballs, and when we requested salt and pepper to add some life to these we were told these were not available although both were eventually produced together in a small bowl. A pepper grinder would be a good investment for this establishment. Basic ingredients are fine but seasoning would go a long way to pick-up the food and make it more interesting.
The server was amazing!
Great place! The food was good and the service was excellent. The atmosphere was cozy and inviting.
Food overall was good however quite over seasoned drinks were great! Service was awesome
Went with friends to discuss an event and have dinner. Waitress was friendly and patient allowing us time to chat and make decisions about the menu. Food was delicious and cocktails we tried were different and very tasty.
Our new favourite spot. Food. Was incredible. Service was excellent and very tasty cocktails. Will be back.
Food was 4/5. Gnocchi, trout special, salad were all tasty. The beef rib was a bit on the salty side, not bad but just beyond our tastebuds.
The server we had was good. Music was a bit loud so it was difficult to speak at our table.
Great new local restaurant with delicious food, excellent drinks and wonderful service.
We were a group of 5 having lunch. We have ordered 4 different dishes. Angolotti and Gnocchi, portion size are small. Poke bowl, the greens in the bowl are not fresh, there were some brown bits / wilted greens in the bowl, portion size is small as well. Only the Taglietelle has a decent size.
We came for the Alberta Plate menu and we ended up with a dinner and a show. Very personable waitress. Had a great time. Will be back again.
Been there before and it was awesome! Sadly tonight was lacking when it came to the food quality. I hope they improve as I think they have potential!
Absolutely incredible meal. I came for dinner with my family and came back for lunch the next day with a friend.
Great customer service. We had 8 people at dinner and two of the steaks were uncooked and they were quick to remove it off the bill. The rest of our meals were delicious!
Great food with a creative twist, friendly service! The cocktails were fun and unique
Cocktails were great. Food was just ok, unfortunately. Service was incredible. Ambiance/decor was also great.
Great staff and great good
Great service great food great cocktails great time!
The food was delicious. The service was fantastic!!! Try everything. We enjoyed the carrots, broccoli and greens pie (pizza). We also thought the Tuesday, drink special was a great idea, kudos the the bartender for whipping something up with our ingredient of choice.
Menu full of interesting & unique choices - parking is a nice bonus!
This is a great restaurant and Happy Hour Mondays are a must. But don't forget to try the decadent dark chocolate cake with orange whip cream.
It was our second visit... drinks are still outstanding but was a little disappointed with the pasta... appies were the best part of the meal... definitely order the tuna
Great atmosphere, great cocktails.
Unique environment with tasty food.
Thanks for the great feedback. We look forward to having you back again soo.
Everything was good, was a bit disappointed to find out after we arrived that the kitchen closes at 8 on Sunday...our reservation was for 7:30, would have been nice to have been told that when making the reservation. We were rushed thru unfortunately
Excellent service, amazing food, lovely ambience! And the apple rose dressing is incredible!!!!!
We went for an early brunch (11:00) and had the place to ourselves for the first little bit. Food was good, $4 mimosas were great! Will definitely be back - need to try the pizza which looked delicious!
Started that the server didn’t know how to open wine keg alone pour to taste.
Food was so so, appys we’re cold
Dinneer was pizza , was ok ?
Good service and food. Recommend getting a bunch of dishes to share with friends. Glad there is reserved parking for customers behind the restaurant and its hard to find parking in bridgeland.
Very nice place with great service. We had the chickpea fritters as it was recommended by others. They were very dry, even with the added sauce they brought us after we complained. We also had the sticky toffee pudding, also recommended. This was to die for! Best sticky toffee dessert I’ve ever had..
Absolutely my new favourite place, I’ve already told many people about your fantastic place. Great service and loved the drink concepts and menu, and the food too!
We had the mussels- they were kinda fishy but not horrible, tuna- really tasty and then the cod- def has to ad salt and pepper, the flavour was enhanced a little more with it. Had good flavour to start just needed a boost. Hubby had the ox’s tail pasta- need s&p as well but good!
Service was great. And ambiance was perfect for our date night with no kids!
