    The menu has great variance - fits any palate. Food was very good, serving sizes are appropriate, baby desserts are a perfect fit for a touch of sweet at the end of the meal. The wine list is unique, great for folks that like to try new things but also has those recognizable stand-bys. If you love wine, this is a great place to go. Matthew was our server and he was fabulous, made each dish sound amazing making it hard to choose. This restaurant is a must try.

    I had dinner at the Homefire Grill last evening. I had the Guinness Stew and my sweetheart had the meatloaf. Both were excellent. We split a piece of carrot cake for desert...also excellent. The staff and service are consistently friendly, accommodating, and professional. I go this restaurant frequently as it is one of my favorites.

    If you are up for a nice dinner out with friends Homefire is a great place to go. The bannock and bison spring rolls were amazing as well as the pork tenderloin and fettucine. I wasn't a huge fan of the sweet potato cheesecake but the creme brûlée was delicious. Manager and server were very friendly and service was excellent.

    HomeFire Grill was perfect for our anniversary night out. Fire was nice and the booths set out around it were perfect for that special occasion! Food was original with lots of game meat dishes to choose from! So overall a special night out I would recommend anyone to try.

    I have been to Homefire Grill a few times now and the food is always good. This time did not disappoint. The steak was done to perfection (best steak I have had in the city) and seasoned just right. The veggies were also cooked and seasoned just right, the only negative I could say would be that the potato could have used a touch more salt and the creme brule wasn't as good as I remember. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable as well. I will definitely be back.

    Did not know what the expect. Host was top drawer, server was friendly and attentive, the food was great. Met with a business associate for a lunch meeting. We were both quite impressed with our meals. Compliments to the chef! The atmosphere was perfect and we were able to have a nice conversation, the background notice was not at all noticeable. Will definitely return.

    We were celebrating our 3rd anniversary and wanted to go some place we haven't tried before. They were willing to quickly change our reservation, wine selection was good, food was excellent ( I ordered a salad it had amazing flavour), prices were reasonable and the service was excellent. I would definitely recommend the Homefire grill.

    The service was friendly enough, but was a comedy of errors. Even if that hadn't happened, the food simply isn't good enough to bring me back. Very generous portions of though. I wouldn't say the food was "bad", but at this price level I'm just not the audience for this place.

    We were looking for someplace new to us, not a chain. This is a nicely appointed restaurant and a good alternative to chains like Earls. The food was excellent. We shared the chicken dumpling salad which was outstanding. Great ginger line dressing - we took our excellent waitress up in her offer of more dressing. I had the pork tenderloin-nicely cooked with a tart cranberry sauce. The roast potatoes were on the cool side and they were quickly and graciously replaced with a side of piping hot replacements. My husband had the lamb stew - also delicious. A distinct lamb flavour not overwhelmed by the gravy or puff pastry crust. Vegetable sides were fresh and cooked to a soft crispness.

    My friends (8 people) and I have been to the Homefire Grill approximately 10 times since it has opened. We have never been disappointed by the food or the service. The manager takes great interest in assuring his guests are well taken care of. Would recommend Homefire Grill to anyone especially if you enjoy Elk or Bison. They have several dishes prepared with this type of meat and it is done to perfection as well as daily specials. They all also have awesome oven fired Pizza. There basically is something for everyone frpm Wild game to Asian Stirfry. Prices are more that reasonable. I paid $26 for an appetizer, entree an desert. Will be returning in December for our Christmas celebration

    We come to this restaurant at least twice a year. We find it to be a moderately priced venue to enjoy some unique and better quality meals. I try something different on the menu each time and so far I have not been disappointed with my choice. The portions are of a good size to fill a moderate appetite and are very tasty indeed. The staff have always been very pleasant and attentive to our needs and seem to be there when you need them. Otherwise they leave us alone to enjoy the company we came in with. The atmosphere is a very good place to be if you enjoy being able to converse during and after your meal. The background noise doesn't overwhelm the voices of those you would really rather hear. Excellent pace to enjoy with friends.

    The waiter was very attentive. The food was only ok. The bison spring rolls were great and the shrimp was good too. However, the bacon wrapped scallops were cold in the middle and had to be sent back. They reheated the remaining two and brought them back. (the remainders of the others that we couldn't eat were on our plates). The penne was ok - nothing stellar. The meatloaf was dry and very dense. The steak was not very good. Overall I would not recommend this place for a special occasion - only if you can't get in somewhere else.

    The ambiance of the restaurant was very nice. We split an appetizer which was good, but both of out entrees were cold when they arrived. After our entrees were done we did not ask for dessert as we were not satisfied with our entrees. Not sure if it was just a bad night for them but we would not go back.

    A bit difficult to get to if you are not familiar with Edmonton as it sits on a one way street and is surrounded in the back by motels. Actually it seems like the location for a chain restaurant but it's much better than that. Shared the crab cakes for a starter and this was just right for two. Server brought two separate little plates without prompting. Main entrees were superb. Bison meatloaf was the best bison dish I've ever had. The pork tenderloin didn't sound so special but was delicious (high quality meat perfectly seared with a simple but complimentary sauce. Sides were not memorable except for the zucchini not being sufficiently cooked in the vegetable mix. Nice wines by the glass in various sizes. Warm atmosphere.

  • Canadian cuisine with a twist
    asnider
    Dined on 6/15/2014
    Homefire Grill takes traditional, European-style Canadian cuisine and puts an aboriginal twist on it. Whether it's a basket of bannock at the start of the meal or elk lasagna (served with garlic bannock toast instead of regular garlic bread), Homefire Grill takes the foods that many of us grew up with and makes them even better. The french onion soup (with, you guessed it, a bannock crouton) is among the best I've ever had. Unfortunately, it's not a regular menu item but if it happens to be the soup of the day when you visit, make sure to order it. The price is a tad high for the serving size, but it's so good that you won't care. Prices are good for the quality and the service is excellent.

    We chose the Homefire Grill for a Father's Day brunch, since it had a 4 star Open Table rating. We were very disappointed. The Eggs Benedict were dry and tasteless, a cheese omelet was greasy and not of good taste, the selection of salads, deserts and fruit was very limited. I would rate this restaurant at no more than 2 star. However, the service was good and friendly.

    We went for Father's Day with our daughter and son-in-law. It was our first visit, and we were pleased with the set up, the variety of foods available and the friendliness of the staff. In particular we appreciated that food was regularly re-stocked, both the hot and cold areas. We are not big fans of booths however, and booths for four seemed to be the dominant choice of seating.

    When we got to the Homefire Grill on a Saturday evening, we couldn't imagine why there were so few people inside. The inside was warm, clean and inviting. We soon learned why people may not return to this place. Our "shrimp and scallop in cream sauce" appetizer was like an oil soup. Our server, Adam, was the only redeeming quality to the restaurant and he graciously brought us a replacement appetizer. The wonton salad was clunky and unrefined, over-dressed and included chicken that was under-cooked. The oven-fired pizza, which we thought had to be fantastic due to their perfectly capable oven, was sadly overshadowed by the raw dough bottom. Conclusions? Much potential, but with inadequately trained, potentially apathetic cooking staff.

    A unique dining experience within the greater Edmonton area. Food selection is different from the standard fare and at the same time enticing because of that difference. The service, from the hostess to the waiter, was warm and inviting. A definite plus to a diverse and exciting Edmoton food scene.

    Went in for Mothers Day brunch, i was quite embarassed to take my mom there, expecting more or as much as they boasted on the website . Upon being seated and waiting almost 10 minutes for the waitress to offer coffee, we just went and plated up. The food was overall the quality of 1st year NAIT students.No waffles or pancakes only french toast,the website stated carved turkey yet was only pork, the turkey was a processed roast in the steam table.Salmon tasted like it had been frozen. Aside from all the noise and busyness, all i heard repeatedly was the clicking of the high heels of the floozy in the striped dress, not appropriate attire for mothers day. A big disappointment having travelled 45 minutes to get there

    We had the special, bacon wrapped filet and lobster tail, the filet was melt in your mouth delicious, I wished they had served butter with the lobster that's the way I always eat it and love it that way, this was the first time I went to a restaurant and butter wasn't served with lobster, we asked for some and they brought some, but we finished our lobster by the time the butter came. I wouldn't do the mashed potatoes again, we didn't care for them, but the red potatoes were good, the veggie were also well done, would have those next time, I think I will be going back, Becase the filet was so good, an just have something either than mashed.
