Our first time to visit and it was on Valentine’s Day. The 6 course menu had plenty of options. Lobster
Bisque was so full of flavour and the main course we chose was the steak and lobster. Both amazing and the steak was done to perfection at medium rare! Our waitress, Joann, was exceptional. Her timing to check in on how things were going was on par. The background music was enough to not hear other tables but soft enough to add to the overall experience. Most definitely we will be back again. Don’t pass up on this beautiful gem!!!!

One of my favourite places to visit for a nice meal out. The steak my boyfriend got with his surf & turf that was on special was cooked perfectly. All of our questions and requests were handled professionally. Will continue to recommend to anyone looking for a higher end meal out in Edmonton.

Had a lovely anniversary dinner at Violono. The restaurant is in a beautiful old house in a nice neighborhood. We had the fillet and arctic char, both were very good. The fillet was cooked perfectly, and so tender. Our server was very attentive and friendly. We even got a free dessert for our anniversary. My only complaints are my fillet was supposed to come with a half lobster tail (that night's special), but it came with shrimp and scallops instead.

Everything was good as always at Violino as per usual, my girlfriend did however have the seafood special that evening and bit into a scallop and there was something hard and it had actually cracked her tooth. She has been in pain since. Other than that everything was great

I booked a table for my engagement dinner and the service was excellent. They allowed me to drop off the champagne several days early, chilled it to perfection, and even provided us a beautiful congratulatory dessert after our meal.

Great atmosphere and a memorable experience. The only minor inconvenience was that the electric fireplace near our table was broken on the day we were there, would have been a nice finishing touch had it been working.

Overall 5/5

The food was great what we got, the waitress forgot our one appetizer which is fine as it happens. She in turn give us another 1/2litre of wine which is fine if I wasn’t driving. My issue with this is she didn’t ask how to make it right just give us another 1/2litre wine, I would have like dessert instead as we couldn’t even drink the wine

Waitress was knowledgeable regarding their menu offerings. The staff was attentive, but not too much. My main was served on a large plate, which took up most of the space on my side of the table. I didn't think that it was necessary to have the food I ordered presented on a large plate. I ordered their fillet mignon, which was cooked as ordered. The accompanying sauce that night was slightly on the salty side. The steak already had nice seasoning on it, so this combined with the sauce was a little more salty for my liking; I left most of the sauce on the side. The lobster was ok, but mine was not separated from the shell; I had to fight with it a little bit to get it off the shell-not a big issue. I would have to go back a couple of more times to have an accurate review. * The main entrance is on the side, and not facing the road; go through the parking lot.

It was our first visit and it was more than what we expected. Beautiful warm setting, music choice was great.
Our hostess/server; Eugenia, was inviting, friendly, warm. It was like we were dinning with a friend.
We purchased a gift certificate for our friends and will most certainly be back!
What a lovely date night!!!
Thank you so very much for your high standards of food and all around service.

Excellent service and lovely ambience, with a good wine selection. However, the food I ordered was less than remarkable. Caesar salad was just ok, and pork chop was very overdone.
