    Went for birthday brunch and was very impressed. Food was delicious, service was great with perfect timing. I'm not sure if decor changed from Murieta's as this was my first time there but the decor is lovely. Vegetarian in the group had some delicious options as well. Will definitely return.

    The food took an extremely long time to come out and it worked out to be a 3 hour dining experience with only 4 people. That is quite ridiculous, especially when it was tapas style dining. The food & ambiance is great, but I'd give this new restaurant a few months to work out the kinks and then I'd be willing to try it again.

    The food was great although limited selection on charcuterie board. Enjoyed the small plates for sharing. Really good. Ambience was comfortable although I would not want a table near the doors to the street. Was disappointed to see large screen TVs in the bar. As the restaurant is an open concept, the TVs were a distraction if you were facing in that direction. Wait staff were friendly, attentive and efficient. Overall an enjoyable experience. Would definitely return!

    All I knew about &27 when I booked the reservation was that it was an up and coming restaurant. I can see why! The food is amazing! We did require a lesson on how to navigate the menu as it is not traditional. We were informed that their premise is to encourage sharing. The best way to eat! The names and descriptions of the items made us want to try everything, but alas we'll just have to go back. Food presentation was extraordinary and the melding of tastes and textures exquisite. We loved that what we thought we were getting for dessert was nothing what we envisioned, it was better! The only "fault" we could find was that the service could be a little more polished, but then I'm a stickler for that and the food outshone this little flaw.

    Our dinning experience was overall positive, the food and the service were great. Just a few notes though, I was on a date with my boyfriend and they had us sitting at a huge table ( sit 6 to 8 people), very unromantic. They sat us at a smaller table after smaller tables freed up and we requested so. We were also uncertain about the ambiance, the restaurant was very bright and there was a mix of pop and electronic music playing. I think the ambiance of this place is better suited for brunch or lunch rather than dinner.

    I was with a group of 10 people. We sampled and shared a huge charcuterie plate----best in town!!! We shared 10 of the 'share" dishes. Every single one was done exquisitely, and all had different exotic flavours. Portions were large---prices were very reasonable. I would recommend this restaurant to foodies and non-foodies alike---make reservations or get there early---very quickly; very soon it will be difficult to get a seat in this excellent restaurant!!

    I had been to Ampersand a few times and invited a few of my friends who absolutely were blown away on the recent renovation! Ampersand 27 has a great vibe - it's 'fresh', 'energetic' and 'vibrant'. My friends and I enjoyed a few items from 'Share & Share Alike' and found the food portions to be just right for two people....so a few of these items gave a great sampling! We also ordered 'The Forest Floor' - loved the thin crust and if you like mushrooms - try this flatbread! The dessert "Neaveau Misu" - beautifully presented....we hated to destroy the dessert but one mouthful...mmmm...the presentation was soon forgotten! We'll be back - still so many cocktails to try....and food to share! Fabulous first dining experience for my friends...and for me....never disappointed!

    My husband and I had a wonderful dining experience at Ampersand 27 on Saturday night. We went with another couple and all enjoyed the ambiance/décor, service, drinks and food. My husband and I went for the Pig Ear Pad Thai which was so flavourful, we also had the Maple Butter Pork Belly (yum - fritters are to die for), Pulse and Grain Salad (gorgeous presentation with lightly poached egg, delicious) and Kale and Spinach Salad (amazing refreshing dressing, dried fruit and crunchy barley) . Our friends had the Hanger Steak and a gorgeous Charcuterie Platter. Everything was amazing! Presentations were creative and appealing, servings generous and most importantly every bite was delicious. We each started with one of the cocktails and proceeded to pass them all around the table and tried each others as they were all so unique and delicious and again beautifully presented. And then each ordered a glass of wine from the impressive list. We had to rush off to a concert but would have loved to hang out there and try another cocktail or two. The atmosphere is wonderful with just enough going on for a fun and social setting. All four of us were very impressed with the overall experience and the value of the meal. We were pleasantly surprised when we received the bill, prices are very reasonable for this gourmet, quality dining experience. People are very friendly and offer unpretentious and sincere service. The owner was making rounds and visiting with all tables. Definitely a must try if you haven't!

    Murrietta's has been beautifully transformed into Ampersand 27! There's so much to look at - and then there's the food menu to puruse not to mention the cocktail list, wine by the ounce, glass and of course by the bottle....great beer selections! Ahhhh but the food....there is no other restaurant that offers the choices! 'Crafted to be different' is an understatement! The lovely charcuterie boards vary in sizes depending on what you order....our board filled the table!! We sampled a couple of the flatbreads - The Coop and The Forest Floor....the names are great but the flavors even better. Loved the thin crusts! My husband had the pork chop (so juicy) and I had the Pork Belly (who doesn't love pork belly)?!? Now that we know our way around the menu we're well on our way to more tasting. Oh! And we shared 'Rocky Road' for dessert....pretty cool - yes they actually look like rocks but the flavors of the fillings tell you otherwise!!! &27 - just what Whyte Ave needed!!

    So many interesting things to try on the menu. Had the charcuterie and everything was fantastic! The service was great and the atmosphere elegant but comfortable (not stuffy). The chef stopped by and offered some info in the menu. Really appreciated the opportunity to ask questions and hear some of his recommendations.

    Ampersand27 is a great place for a date, social function, or a night out with friends. The menu has a large variety of things for sharing and an awesome drink list to match all the fun an excitement. The service was great and the food was delicious. Definitely try the Pork Cheek which is smoked in house and presented to you under a smokey dome. Mmm Mmm!

    Ampersand is an excellent addition to the whyte restaurant scene. The small plates and charcuterie are great for groups (although somewhat pricey). The very small list of mains look very good and the one tried was outstanding. The pizzas were very good.

    Tried out the new Ampersand27 restaurant on Whyte Ave last night. What a new and exciting restaurant for Edmonton! I tried the Albacore Tuna as well as selections from the Charcuterie menu. Simply amazing and innovative melding of flavors that combine for amazing dishes. They also put a new spin on the couple cocktails I sampled! It was a splendid evening with excellent service. I will be back........so many more amazing dishes to try!!

    Open 4 days and everything was amazing. I am wondering if portions will remain as large as time progresses!? I hope so, it was well worth the money spent. The Charcuterie was one of the best in the city! The ability to purchase wine by the ounce was a novel and brilliant idea! Nathin and his team has captured a concept that is new and refreshing and bound to do well in Edmonton. Kudos to our server, Kevin. Knowledgeable and Humorous! I'll be back, with all my friends!

    I was recommended to try out &27 by friends. They had just come from dinner and loved it. I am glad that I booked a date there with my wife. We were impressed with the service and the selection of food. We customized a charcuterie board. The presentation was great and the items were awesome, particularly the cheese recommended by our server. We also ordered three appetizers. We loved the maple pork belly and the arctic char sashimi was divine. The cauliflower was only so-so. Kind of bland. But the lentils that it came with were great. We let the server choose our dessert and he surprised us with Rocky Road. It was tasty and most of all, texturally unique. We will return for the many more dishes on the menu that we want to try.

    What a lovely experience. We went to the soft opening so there were a few expected hiccups in service, as much of the staff was new. They were extremely friendly and looked to make conversation with customers. The food and menu were excellent -- as was the wine list. We will be back very soon. Sure to become a Whyte hot spot!
