A word from 2nd Ave Grill
The 2nd Ave Grill is a casual dining steakhouse that is located at the very core of Saskatoon’s downtown in the Scotia Centre, and has become the eatery of choice for afternoon power lunches, late evening and pre-theatre dining. The atrium is the perfect venue for weddings as well as private and group functions. The contemporary styling of the restaurant and a metropolitan menu, ranging from steaks, fresh salmon, salads and sandwiches, a vast wine list, and a modern décor, as well as great company, have made the 2nd Ave Grill a favourite destination for Saskatoon's maturing downtown crowd. Park your car in our underground parking lot, and come upstairs for the very best food and drink that Saskatoon's downtown has to offer!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I was surprised to be seated outside the restaurant on a pretend patio in the mall. The actual restaurant was much more romantic and ambient. There were many empty tables on arrival and when we left."

  • "Food was not at all good. Calamari was greasy and under-crisped (white actually). Chicken was probably frozen pre-seasoned breast of lowest quality. The restaurant seemed more like a bar than a restaurant ~ dark atmosphere, dirty carpets. This is not a restaurant I will be visiting again."

  • "I've always had great food and service at 2nd Ave Grill, which is why I reserved a table to celebrate convocation. Unfortunately, the service was terrible this time. The waiter (who was training a new waitress) spilled water on the table and we had to ask him later to wipe it up. He forgot to bring a gluten-free menu, the restaurant did not have gluten-free pasta on hand, a drink request was forgotten, the service was slow, the manager brought the wrong entrees, and the vegetables were undercooked. I won't return to this restaurant."

  • "I made a reservation on line and was escorted to me reserved table when I arrived. It was lunch with a client, we were discussing an important business situation and I wanted privacy, and the opportunity to discuss our subject. I picked the right spot for that. Our waitress was very considerate. The meal was fabulous, a daily feature salmon with a great salad mix of greens and potato, asparagus and tomato with a nice light dressing, obviously prepared by a chef not a cook. Paired with a glass of cab house wine, I found this a nice light and tasty lunch. My client had the same with a local beer."

  • "I have always received great food and service when I have been at the 2nd Ave. Grill - and Friday evening was no exception. The waitress was awesome - she really made our experience so much better that night! I had the salmon - very well done and I just love the chicken and mushroom soup! And yes, of course, I will be back!"

  • "I went to 2nd Ave Grill for a business lunch meeting. The restaurant was busy but not too loud, so we were still easily able to talk and hear each other. The service was good and the meals were great. We had chicken chevre salad and chicken and almond salad and the soup. I will definitely continue to take clients to the 2nd Ave Grill. "

  • "I like to bring visiting contractors to 2nd ave for lunch because it is a safe place where everyone can find something they like. The service is usually quite good, but it was a bit less so yesterday. It seemed like there were a couple of new people on our table, this was not a show stopper. I am sure I will be back."

  • "We recently attended 2nd Ave Grill before a show at the TCU. We both had paste and found the meal to be very good and reasonably priced. In addition my wife had a salad and we both had a glass of wine. All in all a very good meal. The waitress was pleasant and we did not have to wait long for our food."

  • "Jordan was a great server. Started with tasty appies. Loved that ginger lime shrimp. Followed by the amazing starter caesar salad. Oh so tasty. My husband dined on the filet cooked to perfection. I enjoyed the delicious salmon. One of my favourites. Our meal was followed with coffee and desert. Our dinner companions enjoyed the filet and fettucini. It was a most fun Friday evening."

    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "If we would have received our meal then a review would be possible. Seems, even though we made reservations for 1 1/2 hours prior to the TCU show, this was insufficient time to prepare a meal. The server did ask and knew we were attending the show. After one hour we had to leave without supper and find somewhere else 3 hours later. Please note this was a Monday night so it was not like the restaurant was full...."

  • "Very nice evening. The salad was fresh, my filet was cooked perfectly and not over-seasoned. The oven-roasted potatoes were very good!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "Our table location was perfect and the server was extremely good at tending to the table as we were engaged in a lengthy visit. We did not feel rushed or constantly interrupted so she did a very good job. The meal was good. The food was fresh, but I was a little disappointed that my meal the (tilipia special) was a little bland with the crust and sauce. I also, think that the starter salad could be improved. Again pretty basic with a slice of cucumber (old) and a token cherry tomatoe. I think an upgrade to a signature house salad would be more appropriate for the price point of the menu items. We had desserts and I again was expecting a little higher quality with the creme brulee."

  • "2nd Ave Grill is centrally located for our group of friends who work downtown and like to celebrate each others birthdays by going out for lunch. The menu provides enough options to please all of us, but not too overwhelming that we cannot decide. The food was great, the wait staff was charming. A good time was had by all."

  • "I recently took my Mom out for her 81st birthday. Tough to find a spot that is current, but not too loud for an 81 year-old. This was the spot. We arrived rather late as we were out shopping, but the waiter was excellent (crouching down and speaking directly to my Mom so she could hear him) and the food was very fresh and rich in flavour. Mom had the salmon and I had steak and we were both very happy with our meals (both cooked just perfectly). The upbeat music wasn't so loud that it was distracting. I would definitely come back with friends, but also was really nice for taking someone a bit older."

  • "Everything started perfectly when I got my reservation confirmation an hour after having made my date online. I visited the restaurant prior to do this and loved the quiet, modern and chic atmosphere that allows adults to have a great time even if they have new born kids. This place is very versatile since has a spot for any ocassion a gal can ask for: romantic dinner, winery, restaurant, lounge, great for groups and bar which was very elegant as well as the people in it. The Washrooms are clean and nice. This is definitely a very high end restaurant and prices are very reasonable for the portions and quality that you get. I'm very happy to have chosen this place and I will definitely come back and bring my 12 friends several times more."

  • "My first experience was a great experience at 2nd Ave Grill. We had an awesome waiter, he was fine with waiting for people to get there is smal groups, he handled an allergy with great care and attention, he brought a late order for a late comer with a smile. He was there when we needed him but not overbearing. The food was quick and very delicious, it was exactly as described in the menu. I would like to come back and try other items from the menu, there were a few that appealed to me. The prices are a little on the high side but probably middle of the line as far as city dining goes."

  • "We ate at the restaurant as a group of five on a friday night. The meal started off great, with the only problem being that we had to ask three times , in a thirty minute period before we got our water glasses refilled. Then my husbands steak came in as a rare, when it was ordered to be a medium well. My meal never showed up, I was informed they were out of it after everyone else had already got their entrees. My husbands ordered a martini that never made it to the table as well. I had to take my dinner home in a doggie bag, as it finally arrived after everyone was finished with their meals. The food that did make it to the table was delicious, but the service took away from the experience."

  • "I booked a table for a Stagette and we had a 2-hour window to eat before our limo came to get us (the staff knew of this time-frame). Our waiter was great at bringing us drinks and our appetizer right away. After an hour and a half of waiting we had to ask when our main course was coming. Our main course was delivered10 minutes before we had to leave. We all ordered steak or lobster or both and they were all over-cooked ( I ordered mine medium rare and got one that was well-done!) I thought maybe they were plated wrong but as everyone cut into their food it was all over-cooked. The vegetables were undercooked. We didn't have enough time to send it back! We paid for our meal as we were eating it to save time. Very disappointed in the food."
    Dined on 6/15/2013
  • "We enjoyed the whole lobster and the lobster pasta. It would have been helpful to know exactly what you were supposed to eat on the lobster as the green stuff was not too appetizing. The lobster pasta was flavourful but the portions were quite small. Again a recommendation that a salad or soup may be needed for the bigger eaters."
