    Food quality and presentation was top notch and the menu, while only two pages, seemed to have enough variety for everyone as they had steaks, seafood, chicken, pork, bison, and lamb all prepared in one or two special ways...

    This was our second visit as a group to this restaurant, and we had a great evening. The service was excellent, the selection was great as was the food. The little extras made us feel special and were an added bonus. For example, there was a nice assortment of breads with specialty butters, a delicious appetizer from the chef, and a wonderful truffle assortment at the end of the meal. And the presentation was lovely, with generous portions. We look forward to a return visit!

    Dined on 10/23/2014
    Contrary to what the website says, when u arrive and are going just for the table side Crepes Suzettes u are advised that its not on the menu.!! However, since it was a week day, they said it was quiet enough to do this. Had it been a weekend or busy they would have stuck to the fact its not on the menu. I do suggest removing it from the website then, as most people use that for reference. Since that was my main reason for going we had said we'd leave if that desert was not able to be made. Other than that service was GREAT, we only had soup and salad plus the crepes, but were very pleased. As a vegetarian it would be nice to see one or two more dishes added in that area. I would return.

    I brought my gf up to Edmonton for a nice get away. We dined at LA and the staff (especially Warren) was so welcoming. The fresh bread, wine were amazing followed by the best meal that we've ever had at a nice dining establishment. I had the steak and my go had the tenderloin. The chocolate truffles for dessert combined with the special magic surprise that they do for the warm towels was the cherry on top. Worth every penny and would recommend L2 to all my friends.

    Went for the thanksgiving set dinner. Originally thought it was a little pricey $55 for a four course meal; but we found the food awesome! Good size portions and the service was amazing. We were truly spoiled. Great atmosphere quiet even with the full restaurant. There were some people however with small children who were not appropriately dressed for such a nice restaurant and lots of men with hats on! A big pet peeve of mine. For such a nice restaurant they should have a dress code. Overal we had an awesome time and will definitely return again

    Everything was excellent; the food, the atmosphere and the service. Although, this visit our server was not the most attentive. On our previous visits the service was exceptional. We always order the Fantasy Feast platter for 2 and this time everything was rushed and not at the level we have come to expect. I had also mentioned in my reservation that we were celebrating our 6 year anniversary, and the representative that called to confirm specifically old me they will do something special for us for our anniversary. However, they did nothing. That would be my only complaint for this visit.

    We were there for breakfast and the potatoes, sausages and bacon were dry. The omellete station and the waffle station were great. Also, they were great with the checking of the coffee but they were not concerned with the water. We had to ask for them to refill our waters. Overall, I will still go back for breakfast.

    From the moment you walk in, they treat you like royalty. The tuna on a bed of noodles to start was yummy. The sorbet that followed was great as well as the warm bread with assorted butters. This is all included no matter what you order. The main course lamb for me and sirloin steak for my friend was very good although my lamb could have been cooked a little more Vegetables were crisp and tasty. We were too full for dessert but went for a brandy alexander which was very tasty They brought a tray of complimentary truffles to our table and each was very good All in all a great night!!

    Staff went out of their way to set up table for 12 people for my wifes birthday. However forgot to bring my wifes drinks when we ordered. A couple had ordered the feast for two and it was very cold, they sent out a new steak for both of them which were blue rare. When it came time to pay they tried to charge me for 11 drinks when we only ordered four. Everyone elses bill checked out though. Don't think ill be back.

    Out to have a special night out. L2 grill did not disappoint. atmosphere was good, service was excellent somewhat due to the fact we were 1 of 2 tables seated on a Wednesday night. The whole dinner experience was very good, with all of the little surprises along with our dinner. I had steak, my wife had the chicken dish. presentation was excellent and the quality of the food very good. tableside flambé crepe suzette for desert.

    We went on a Saturday night, so you would expect it to be busy, but there was hardly anyone there. The waiting staff were very good - attentive and pleasant, and right off the bat they brought us some complementary scallops, so they definitely try to treat the customer right. It has all of the elements of a really nice restaurant, but unfortunately they are not executing on the food. Ultimately, that's the whole reason for the restaurant so even with the good service I wouldn't be able to recommend them. I don't have enough characters left to go into very much detail, but basically I found the food plain, my fish was overcooked and my wife's chicken was something we could have made at home with not much effort. We expected more.

    The food was very good, but the hot food was not hot or even warm. Service was excellent during our meal. Didn't realize there were so many booths which is always a bother with a brunch to move in and out. Felt a little rushed as apparently they had seatings at 9:30, 11:30 and 1:30. Our reservations were for 12:00 noon. We received a call two days before asking us to change our reservations to 11:30. We were unable to due to a prior commitment and the lady on the phone seemed quite disturbed that we couldn't. Nothing was said initially when the reservations were made and I did call days before leaving a message to confirm my reservations but my call was never returned.

    We decided to try L2 for a birthday dinner. The food was excellent and we enjoyed our waiter who was very helpful. This is the first restaurant we have found that offers a wine my husband likes by the glass. (gewürztraminer) He enjoys this wine, while I prefer a dryer wine. We are sure to revisit. Thanks for a great night!
