    The food here is consistently good. I eat gluten free so I appreciate that the options are there for me, including pasta and bread, although the plain white toast offered is certainly not representative of the options that are now available. The dessert offerings look great; unfortunately I never have room for dessert. My guests enjoyed the croissants that are served, and like that they have flowering teas.

    Lived in Edmonton all my life. Heard of Cafe de Ville, had driven past it, but never eaten there. Went there for our twentieth anniversary dinner. I had flowers sent and they were on the table when we arrived. We were greeted and the anniversary was acknowledged. Our waiter made great wine suggestions and we had a great time there. The food was outstanding! (Except my cayenne infused chocolate mousse dessert - wasn't a fan!) Thanks for making our special occasion even more special! (On a side note, we are a lesbian couple and they never even batted an eye at that fact and were treated and congratulated like any other couple celebrating an anniversary! So thank you for that too)

    I did the stuffed chicken special, beef soup, and white chocolate macadamia nut cake. They were all pretty good. Nothing was outstanding but nothing was really bad. The beef soup appetizer was standard. The stuffed chicken was excellent and the cake was slightly bland and a little too sweet. The coffee was above average. The service was very good.

    Dined on 6/18/2014
    Four of us dined for an anniversary celebration. The food was very tasty and everyone enjoyed what they had. The pasta portion and dinner size salad were a good size. The de ville starter salad was very fresh with a nice light vinaigrette which didn't overpower the salad. The chicken kashmir was delicious but a smaller portion than we remembered from before. Thought they were medallions and it was a bigger portion on previous visits. There was very little rice included - about 2+ tablespoons only. Rice is inexpensive so they certainly could have added more. A few more veggies would have added to the meal as well. Carrots were a little too al dente. The restaurant was quiet so we could all talk which was fantastic. Great ambiance.

    Went for a business lunch. Have been to Cafe de Ville before but it had been a while. The food was soooo good. The croissant type bread to start was fresh and tasty. My client had the Fruit de Mar pasta and i had the vegetarian lasagna. Both were fabulous! Had the peanut butter cheesecake for dessert. Melted in your mouth! Big piece can feed two!

    This little gem is quickly becoming a favourite. I've been here with friends, my husband and, most recently, with my daughter. On June 2 my daughter & I came for lunch and were seated at the outdoor patio. The service was great - from the maitre d' who seated us to the young man who served us and answered all our questions in a friendly, knowledgeable manner. We both had the quiche with borscht soup and coffee. The quiche was divine & the borscht delicious. The coffee was good too (I had de-caff, which can be either really good or really awful). Overall, another great experience at Cafe de Ville!

    We have been to Cafe de Ville a few times over the last few years and it never fails to impress. The food is always excellent and interesting. My waffle topped with poached egg, spinach and caramelized onions with just a light dressing of hollandaise sauce was outstanding with a fine balance between the sweet of the waffle and salt of the egg and spinach. For the Mohters' Day brunch the pre-meal serving of fresh baked pastry is a tantalizing fore-taste of what is to come. Of especial note for Cafe de Ville is that although it was busy (but not too busy) the noise level was reasonable. I hate it when good restaurants are too noisy that you cannot hear your fellow foodies discuss what is on the plate. The ambience is excellent.

    I can't imagine attending the Baroque concerts on Sunday afternoons without going for dinner afterwards at Cafe de Ville. I'm quite adventurous when it comes to food - vegetarian that is - but at Cafe de Ville I almost always order the Polenta Souffle. Why? Because it is consistently excellent. My dining companions order a variety of meals and are always pleased with their choice.

    I have come to this restaurant many times and always enjoyed it, but was disappointed on Tuesday night. I ordered the Bengal pasta. It came heaped in a bowl and a brownishish colour with not even a sprig of parsley or something to make for a beautiful presentation. It was uninspiring and visually unappetizing. The kitchen needs to step it up.

    I took my Mom for lunch as a birthday treat and everything was great. We enjoyed a couple glasses of wine, a cocktail, some coffee and espresso. We share some Mussels, which were absolutely amazing. She had the Salmon and I had the Pescatore. I found the Pescatore to be quite heavy and salty with the sauce, but it was delicious all the same. I would definitely like to come back here again.

    We have been going to Cafe de Ville for a long time. We have enjoyed it so when my husbands birthday was on the weekend, we decided to go there. I ordered the Kashmir chicken which I haven't had in a long time and it was something I could make at home. Panko breaded chicken breast with a broccolli stick and some plain rice with a dollop of chutney. Ho hum. My daughter had a pizza that was nice but they gave her olives which we neither wanted or asked for. Picked them off. They do need to breathe some life into the place, change up the menu a bit. I do love the location and the atmosphere, just ho hum.

    Everything was fantastic in the moment and the service was great and they were especially good with my 2 year old nephew. In the middle of the night, however, I was woken by feelings of nausea. I had the stuffed chicken and I wonder if something wasn't quite food safe with it. Thanks for asking for feedback or else I wouldn't have let the restaurant know. This shows that they are a step above, in terms of service.

    We booked a table for 1130 thinking that we could choose some brunch type menu items. Didn't realize that the "brunch" menu is only available on Sundays. We were a bit disappointed by that but we had the quiche (the only egg option on Saturday) which was really good, with soup. Our favorite appetizer with the smoked salmon, chutney and various breads is no longer on the menu. Decor is lovely, service is great. Menu has some unusual combinations but everything is very good.

    I normally like Cafe de Ville very much, and I chose this restaurant for my birthday brunch with my family, we had brunch this past Sunday and I ordered the bacon and eggs- firstly they wouldn't scramble my eggs, only poached- it takes 2 minutes to scramble eggs- and the bacon was super salty- I love bacon, but good, thick cut bacon should not be so salty- and my family would attest to me loving savoury salty food but this bacon was almost inedible-no nice smoky flavor, just salt- I expect more from Cafe de Ville, especially for $15, for just bacon and eggs. The desert was great as was the little basket of pastries they initially bring out- our server was also great. Thanks, Katheryn
