Very disappointing. At the start of the evening we ordered a bottle of wine. After some time the waitress returned with a wine that was two years younger than the one on the menu stating they were out of the one I ordered, but this one should also be good. I said no thank you to that and ordered a different bottle. Again, after some time she returned with the year I ordered but an entirely different varietal! She said the year I ordered was not available but hoped I would like this one. I again said no, but if the year they had was at a lower price than what was on the menu, I’d purchase it. No, she said. It was a misprint and they were actually not selling what I ordered. I ordered iced tea. What came was a very sweet raspberry iced tea. They did not even have regular unsweetened iced tea! I drank water with my steak. It ruined our birthday dinner. I would never return and not recommend this restaurant.

Upon entering the restaurant there was a smell that can best be described as sewer like - the hostess said she was not sure what it was - we ate outside.
The service was very good but we all thought the food was quite overpriced for what we received. I have eaten here before but I was far from impressed this time around
and I had guests with me from out of town.

Came to Vons for a drink and to catch up with a friend, it was very quiet in the lounge for a Friday evening. Order the fried cauliflower and prime rib slides, both were delicious. Loved their strawberry cosmo as well. Will definitely come back for drinks and apps in the lounge again.

Would not recommend. The restaurant did not smell good when we walked into it. We had a terrible waiter. He did not bring our salad beforehand. Brought it with dinner, so we sent it back

Dinner was fantastic. The prime rib was perfectly cooked. The only thing that was disappointing was the dessert. However, didn’t take away from the reason we went - meat!

The server was awesome. Friendly and attentive.

Average food, prices too high. Beets in salad mushy. Asparagus tips bitter. Steak was cooked nice. Waiter a bit over the top. Made reservations early, yet sat us next to the busy in/out door to the patio. Not good value for your money. $360 for 4 people - with only 5 drinks and 2 glasses of wine.

I stopped coming here two years ago because it went completely down hill. I decided to come back and try again. The food was good the service was good but it’s definitely getting old and needs some renovations . The patio is great but for a Friday night there wasn’t barley anyone in the restaurant or outside .

Myself and my friend went there for dinner, this was the 3rd time she has been there and the second for myself. Both time i was there with her it was so close to perfect i really dont think i know of anything more they could have done.
We were sat at a table foe 2 in the dining area right next to the fireplace. On a evening that was rainy and cold the firplace was a very nice addition the food was exactly the way we orderd it and staff was awesome as well.
I took her back a week later and when i made the reservation i asked that we sit in the same area as we did the first time and we got just that. Both times were a geat experience.

My steak was pretty much raw
No where close to medium rare
Same with my girlfriends
Service was terrible
Would not recommend
$155 meal should be a decent meal but it was far from that
Very unhappy
Steak Oscar was my dish
Steak and Shrimp was my girlfriends
The appetizer was decent it was a mushroom dip

One of the few restaurants where you can have an intimate conversation. The seafood is not always fresh but it's always well prepared. Wines by the glass are well chosen. Steak was tasty and cooked as ordered.

Me and my family have always enjoyed Von's. I would put their prime rib against the Keg anyday, infact, I would say it's superior to the Keg's. This past Fathers Day, my kids and I decided to take their Dad to Von's for supper. My husband and son ordered the prime rib (which they always order) and my daughter and I ordered the steak. We always order our meat medium rare. Normally it is cooked to perfection, but this time, everyone one of our meals was cooked medium well. We could tell as soon as our meals arrived that they were overcooked. We waited for quite a while for our food, and were too hungry to send everything back. This was a disappointment for sure. It was Fathers Day however, and I'm guessing they were busier than they are used to and the kitchen may have had problems keeping up. It just sucks to pay over $250 for an ok meal. I wish we had gone to the Keg now with the money we spent at Vons for that meal.

The food and service were wonderful! Diane was our server and she was fabulous and the food was above par. My filet mignon was cooked perfectly and my boyfriend loved the seafood platter. The restaurant was beautiful and overall was a fantastic experience. The only downfall was the patrons at the next table who were loudly swearing while telling stories to each other, but everything else from the restaurant was perfect for a date night!

Von’s never disappoints in the food department. Thankfully, this restaurant has been consistent over the years. One weird thing.....I ordered 3 different bottles of champagne before I had to settle on Prosecco. And my son, who is a whiskey drinker, wanted double Crown Royal and they could not accommodate. No Canadian whiskey. They only had JD which is not even close to the same. It bothered and alarmed me...are you going out of business?
I’ll go back cause the food is exceptional.

Food was great but we waited about five minutes to be greeted at the door, were rushed from the moment arrived and told we had to eat and leave so they could close. No dessert option. The reservation indicated this was a birthday meal. The restaurant called twice that day, to confirm the reservation and then to move us to the lounge so they could close the dining room, so it’s not as if they didn’t know we were coming. A very disappointing experience at a place I’ve really enjoyed in the past.

I have to say one of the more disappointing experiences we have had dining in a long time, so many things went sideways we just checked out. The manager did come to our table 3 times to explain mishaps so kudos to her.

We were out for a celebration dinner for my husband’s birthday. We typically go to The Keg for steak but had heard positive feedback about Von’s. My husband had the New York steak, our daughter had surf & turf, and both myself and our son in law had prime rib. The vegetables were delicious, especially the broccoli. The steaks were not as flavorful and were slightly over cooked. My prime rib appeared to have set under a heat lamp for too long and the other prime rib was medium well- we’d both requested medium rare so that was disappointing. I had been so excited to have Yorkshire pudding served with the prime rib but it tasted stale and unpleasant. All in all we were all disappointed with the food and will look forward to returning to the Keg for a good steak.

Vons is an Edmonton classic that has lasted the test of time. Service is second to none. While the menu is hardly inventive, they have mastered their niche.

For that extra special event or a quality romantic venue Von's delivers. The steak was superb, done as requested and not over seasoned. So nice to have a quality cut of meat done to perfection. Service harkens back to the old days of a well mannered and experienced waiter that pops up at the right times.

I have been to Von's several times. The oysters are always great. This time we had a server that was new to the restaurant and she certainly was in no hurry to provide us with service. Steaks were awesome and sides were complimentary to the dish.

Family of 8 ( 2 seniors, 4 adults and 2 children ). Mother’s Day Brunch... excellent service by Brad ( I think that was his name ) bravo for his sense of humor and rolling with the punches from the grumbly Grandpa. They were able to accommodate our needs of being in the lower part of the restaurant vs the loft at the very last minute. Our first time for brunch here and all walked away with full tummy’s and nothing but excellent feedback... will definitely recommend and be back next year... the salmon Benedict was by the far the tastiest we ever have had.. soft English muffin and the egg was cooked to perfection. We thoroughly enjoyed the marinated mussels and the lobster Mac n Cheese... everything was delicious and fresh and hot...
