Best server I’ve had in a long time. Props to him.
First time there
Portions alike small
On calamari for price
Was a nice evening having sea food. Oster and lobster was really good.
First thing's first. Kevin is PHENOMENAL! He made what was supposed to be just a super low key birthday dinner with my boyfriend into such a special evening. He was so attentive and personable. We felt we made a friend that evening versus just having another waiter serve us. On top of the exceptional service, the food was on point and the overall ambiance was just perfect. This was our 2nd time at Von's and we'll definitely be back!
If you like fresh oysters, this is the place to go in Edmonton. Excellent service as well!
Our reservation was for 5 to celebrate a milestone birthday in the family. EVERYTHING from start to finish was a positive and wonderful experience. Definitely very happy to have chosen Vons for a 3.5 hour, slow dining and sipping experience. Highly recommend⭐️
The food was phenomenal and the service was fantastic.
Service was amazing.
Overall a great experience.
Good food , excellent service and nice atmosphere.
Had dinner with two colleagues, everything was exceptional. Our waiter Matt was fantastic and all of our food was perfect, cooked exactly as ordered, compliments to the chefs. I would highly recommend Von’s no matter the occasion, their dinning room is a comfortable and relaxing environment.
Everything was good for my dining companions and even the appetizers. Unfortunately I ordered the halibut and it was dry. Also the truffle risotto didnt taste like truffle and it was too salty to finish...other than that it was a good experience.
My steak was excellent however my wife was not overly impressed; she ordered the birds nest seafood pasta that advertised a crab leg on top that was missing and the pasta was as overdone making it mushy
We visited Von’s on numerous occasions. Maybe this was an off night but it was a very disappointing experience
The service was not up to par. We never got bread to the table until after the meal arrived. Ordered the seafood dinner for 2 which was delivered cold. We asked for a steak to be added and had to pay for a full steak dinner. Would be nice to have an add on option for steak only not pay for a full second meal all you want is the steak. Water glasses were frequently empty. We did not order drinks so it was a bit frustrating.
We (a party of five) met for my son's belated birthday meal. He wanted to eat steak and I gave him about four restaurant recommendations. Two of us had the halibut, two had the Steak Oscar and I oscar-ed a strip loin steak. All of the meals were delivered hot and just as we ordered. The meat was tender and delicious. The paired wine (Latour) was very good. The service was excellent.
Great fresh raw oysters...very good sea food dishes!
Worst food and Very slow service ! Never recommend at all !
service can be faster. front desk no communicate with customer. no thank you no hello
We enjoyed our evening here. It was fun, the food was good and the waiter was attentive. Being from the UK, I would have liked better Yorkshire puddings. They were OK but not as good as my Mum used to make. They need to be lighter. I also think they should serve better desserts, and not those made somewhere else and shipped in. Light custards over home made apple or blueberry pie or sticky toffee pudding with custard or meringue would have been great.or even just specialty sherbert as a palate cleanser
Phenomenal food and exceptional service. Will certainly be going back.
Great cook on the steaks.
My siblings and I took my parents to Vons for dinner last night and we had an amazing experience. Our server was friendly and very helpful. The food was absolutely incredible and we enjoyed every dish we ordered. We ordered a few appetizers, each of us ordered our own dishes for our main course which included the goat cheese filet, rib eye, the Oscar, halibut, and the creole chicken and each dish was impeccable! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to all!
Waited long for my drinks Got my steak before my appetizer ,the steak was cooked to perfection but the quality of the steak is not worth the price ,their menu says AAA steak but it tastes like it was bought from a local grocery store !
Had the filet mignon, which was cooked to a perfect medium rare. Delicious! My dining companion had the evening special steak, also very good.
We had an appetizer off the summer menu, tempura lobster and shrimp, which was not as described. Batter was not tempura like, but a heavier fried batter. Lobster pieces were ground and battered into balls. The chili aioli that was supposed to come with the dish was replaced with a sweet soy glaze. We would definitely not order this appetizer again. That said, our main courses and sides, as well as the service, were all excellent.
The bread served before the meal was a few thin slices of hot dog buns. Very poor.
Excellent Food service was good loved the seafood platter it was amazing oysters where good
Have been to Von’s before and the food and service this time was not up to par. Server was nice but came across unorganized considering it was a VERY quiet Sunday evening. We ordered the charcuterie board which looked like something that could have been made with a grocery store kit. Did not come with crackers, had to ask twice before a bowl of basically triscuits came out. Not what you’d expect for over $30.00.
Rest of the food was passable but nothing great. Will not be returning unless strictly for the buck a shuck deals which were still good. Not sure if it’s changed owners or management but there’s definitely something off...
Awesome service, food and time! Everyone in our group of 6 was happy with their food!
Everyone loved their meal which is rare for our party!
Von’s has always been my favourite restaurant to have special occasions at. However I was disappointed on Friday night when we celebrated my husbands 60th birthday.
I wasn’t overly fond that we were sat at the bar. I reserved seating earlier in the week for 6 people, however I did end up adding a 7th last minute. So I figured maybe that’s why we were seated there.
The service was ok, she was nice enough.......not sure if it was the server, or the kitchens issue, but my husband had ordered garlic toast when his steak arrived. This took forever when he ordered it. And then the waitress brought out cheese toast. He’s lactose intolerant, and was not happy. So he ate his steak, and about 10 mins later his garlic toast shows up. I know our area wasn’t overly busy, but maybe the kitchen was busy.
Another person had ordered steak medium, and it was very well done. I ordered the seafood platter for 1, which is the whole reason why I go to Vons. It wasn’t that great, I honestly left feeling like I had eaten at red lobster. Everything was way too salty.
I hope this is a one off, and not indicating the future of Vons...
It was okay but could’ve been better. The tried to push us into the lounge when we clearly booked the dining room. Service was okay but nothing special. Food overall was good but steak cooked rare instead of medium and advertised 10oz and was lucky to be half that.
the Escargot was good but so small it wouldn’t feed a baby as taster. The sirloin sliders were nice. The onion soup was good.
Absolutely wonderful service great food choices , amazing delicious appetizers. Service was spot on. Very courteous staff. Wait times were excellent! Ambiance!! Well let’s just say we will be going back and telling everyone about iur wonderful experience . Thankyou Von’s
Food was good, although I believe the steak entrees should include vegetables and the potato side for the price. Service was somewhat lacking for a restaurant of this calibre. One of our guests had ordered a martini that was substituted by the bar because they did not have the one she requested, She was clearly not enjoying the drink and the server did not offer to replace or comp the drink. My wife also asked for a refill after her was was empty for some time, which didn't get refilled until much later.
Worst food and very poor service ,most of the wines are not available!
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner and we LOVED it! The food was absolutely outstanding!! Our server was excellent. The only slight drawback was a loud, rude woman in the restaurant, but that is not the fault of Von's! I will definitely come back here
The waitress forgot drink order, they forgot potatoes with the first steak which was blue rare when ordered medium then returned with a medium rare steak the second round. Manager very friendly but too many mistakes
Our waiter essentially ignored us the whole time we were there and it took over 25 minutes from the time we sat down until our APPETIZER order was taken, he didn’t take our whole order. And our appetizer was messed up, our main dish arrived before half of our appetizer. We used to frequent this restaurant but we likely won’t ever be back, HUGELY disappointed in the whole experience.
We used to love Vons and it was our go to special occasion spot. It was quite disappointing this time. Between the food, service and very expensive costs we won’t be back.
Food was really good, as always. Got the charcuterie board and that was delicious! Only thing I’d say was the waitress seemed very overwhelmed. She was extremely polite and did her job well but needs to calm down a little lol.
