Best Dinner Ever!!I spend a lot of time wining and dining clients. I've been to so many restaurants it has lost its appeal to certain degree. Hardware Grill changed that immediately, as both my lady friend and I were absolutely blown away by the entire experience. Friendly service, incredible food, and an ambiance second to none.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMfood and service were exceptionalfood and service were exceptional which was no surprise.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHands down best french onionHands down best french onion soup in town.

For first course we had the Bacon Wrapped Scallops, and Crispy Pork Belly. For Main course we had Porcini Crusted Sea Bass, and 60 Day Aged Spring Creek Ranch New York Steak. The Crusted Sea Bass was on top of two crepes filled with lots of seafood - very very yummy and filling. For dessert we had Salted Caramel Creme Brulee and 12 year Old Glenlivet Butterscotch Pudding (both desserts were very very good). Everything on the menu looked very good. We would love to come back and try the "House Applewood Smoked Salmon for first course and Alberta Lamb rack. Service was very good...7/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat EverythingMyself and 7 others celebrated my cousins convocation and were delighted with everything from start to finish.

Our waiter was very friendly and helpful but wasn't in our face. The food was a little extravagent, meaning there was lots on the menu that I didn't know what it was, but the food was excellent. Tried the Lobster Risotto never having Risotto before and it was amazing. Very flavourful. The over all experience was really nice. However, not sure I'd fine there again only because there wasn't a lot on the menu I'd eat.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDining ExperienceThis was an excellent dining experience.

Our food was amazing! This is one place that I tend to moan in ecstasy with every single bite! Everything was delicious- appy, entree, dessert and of course, the wine.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & EXCELLENT Service!Friendly and Excellent service provided.

Our server was alright, although I have had better in less expensive places.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to Hardware GrillI have been to Hardware Grill a number of times for both lunch and dinner. This last time for lunch was no exception - the food and the service were both great, and I can't wait to go back. I had the potato crusted salmon, and the profiteroles for dessert. I would recommend both, as both were great. Only thing I would change would be to have access to the beef carpaccio on the lunch menu...5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasic Dining ExperienceBeautiful room, top quality service, amazing food - all in all, a great dining experience!

Food and service are always impeccable.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA Fantastic FindMy Wife & I went for our Anniversary, and it was every bit what we heard about it. HIghly recommend it !!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTechnically ProficientThis was our first time to Hardware after hearing about it for years.
Everything was very good. We really enjoyed the Bacon wrapped Scallop appetizer, the Walnut crusted goat cheese salad and the Bacon wrapped Elk and Beef Shortrib entree. We also really loved the Q (in house filtered) water that was automatically served to every table.
We found the whole experience slightly lacking however. The service staff were all highly professional, but lacked any real engagement or passion over anything at all, which left us feeling a little cold.
After 30 years managing in the industry , we've found a smile and some enthusiasm go a long way towards enhancing the dining experience making it outstanding.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMfoodwanted to try something unusual so ordered the elk ternderloin. It was fantastic, plus every other selection on the plate had distinct and excellent flavours. Finished off with the Gingerbread for dessert, which was also excellent.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLives up to the hypeInspired menu items with fresh local ingredients. Definitely lives up to the hype. Had the romaine salad, chevre beet salad, and burrata cheese to start. All fantastic - the chevre beet salad was rich and very well balanced, the burrata was simple and delicious. Had the tenderloin with bone marrow and the vegetarian tasting entree. The tenderloin was overcooked the first time but came back perfectly cooked. My only gripe was that the bone marrow was reused when served the 2nd time, so most of it had melted out leaving almost nothing let. The vegetarian tasting option had lots of variety, at least 4-5 different items on the plate. It was very rich however, so a touch on the heavy side although delicious.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely LunchIt is a really nice place to have a special lunch, treat yourself. Food was good, tastey and nicely presented. We will be back.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Restaurant in EdmontonThe food was fantastic, perfectly cooked and with very generous portions.
