    We came to XIX to celebrate my daughter's Sweet 16 birthday. Jason was our waiter. He was spectacular and did not under sell the meals. They were everything that he said they would be and more. I will gladly go back ~ hopefully as soon as possible!

    The atmosphere was fantastic! Great for a romantic evening. I went to celebrate one year of marriage with my wife, who happens to be a chef as well. We were excited to try this place as we have heard good reviews. The appetizers were amazing! We had 2 and a salad - all were great. Our expectations for the entrées were very high as the appetizers were so good... the entrées were okay - nothing special. I would try different things the next time around. It wasn't as expensive as I have heard - I don't mind paying extra to have good quality food. Will be back to try other things!

    The food at Nineteen is amazing - great flavours, very interesting and imaginative combinations, beautiful presentation,and good portions. Service is great. The only negative is the NOISE! The noise level made us feel like we were in the middle of a busy food court, such a shame.

    We walked in and loved the ambiance and the service, but the food just did not measure up to what we heard. The best part of the evening was my dessert and the cup of excellent decaf I had with it. We were there with friends and could hardly hear them speak over the music. It was just too loud!

    My wife and I went to Nineteen XIX for our anniversary. Both the service and the food were exceptional. When we first sat down it felt like we were closer to the table beside us than each other - that feeling disappeared quite quickly however. Lighting was good for our special occasion and everything was great.

    The service was outstanding, the food was of a remarkable quality. The menu while not large had an impressive array of dishes to suit all tastes. I have visited this restaurant previously and have always thoroughly enjoyed the food, wine and ambiance. This is truly a gem outside of the Edmonton downtown area.

    I had heard very favourable comments about this restaurant so chose it for the special occassion of an anniversary. It more than surpassed its recommendations. The menu was varied enough to satisfy anyone and make having to narrow the order difficult. Thus a need to come back again to try other items. Our waitress was wonderful. She was Helpful and prompt without being in your way. The atmosphere was very pleasant. Comfortable with the ability to hear your dinner companion. I would highly recommend the restaurant and would personally like to try lunch there also.

    I really enjoy how the menu changes all the time, it really opens your mind to all other food out there, the food was amazing and the service was just top notch, I like how they didn't interrupt you when you had a mouth full of food "oh how is the food"? They waited till you were actually finished and then discussed it with you.

    We ate here for my boyfriend's birthday. The food was very tasty and appropriate sizing. We shared a couple starters and enjoyed an entree and dessert each. Our server was knowledgable about what dishes could be done gluten free for my allergies and how to avoid legumes for my boyfriend. The kitchen even put a chocolate happy birthday and sparkler on my boyfriend's dessert.

    Went for our 3rd anniversary. Was a bit of a treat for us and I was expecting a premium attached for the special occasion. We were greeted and seated immediately. Our server did an excellent job of explaining the NINETEEN story and the items on the menu. He actually changed my choice of entrée due to his description. Overall I found the food excellent, and even though the portions look small, they were filling due to the richness of the food. Definitely would recommend for a special evening out.

    We went to XIX on a recommendation from a friend for a date night. We were not disappointed. From the second we walked in we were greeted with smiling hostess', our server Sue was outstanding, personable, friendly sense of humour and new her menu from how things were prepped to ingredients. Even as we were leaving we plassed the wine rack and another staff member a gentleman ( dont remember his name) stopped to explain some wines, how the winer cooler worked and the dispenser and then took the time to show us other wines. This was some what wordy, but in a few words, You gotta eat here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It was a great experience once we got there. Making the reservation was another thing. the booking service refused my initial reservation for five people. Then I made one for four people and added an email as your service provided. Then your reply was that emails were not accepted. Then I tried phoning the restaurant during advertised business hours to be told by answering machine the restaurant was closed and to leave a message. Couldn't leave a message as the machine cut out. I gave it one more try and was able to leave a message. Fortunately restaurant personnel phoned back to confirm my message. I think I got an A for persistence. I nearly gave up; easy communication would have been most welcome.

    It's nice to have a good restaurant someplace other than downtown Edmonton. Parking was so easy! Good selection an variety for food and drinks. We were seated by the kitchen, so could watch our food being cooked. Balcony looked inviting too. My friends had the ahi tuna dishes and were quite pleased. I enjoyed a couple of appetizers and salad. None of the dishes blew me away, but everything was very well done. They ended up being quite busy, so it took a little to get our bill. Yet the service was super friendly and very accommodating.

    I took my fiancée here for her birthday dinner. We showed up at 5pm. Seated right away, the restaurant was pretty much empty. Our server was very friendly, the atmosphere was romantic and modern. Ordered our drinks and apps, they arrived quickly as there were no other tables to cook for... It was amazing. The beef tataki was delicious, and very flavorful. Next, entrées... I had the beef tenderloin with potato wedgies, the fiancée had the gnocchi. Again, fantastic flavor, great presentation and extremely tender beef. Have to say, been searching Edmonton for some great places to frequent and this tops the list... Loved it ... Definitely recommend Nineteen.

    Spectacular appetizers - Tuna Tataki and Tuna Twists ( all time faves) Salmon was also outstanding. I tried the wild Boar and had higher expectations ... a little underwhelmed. I think the latest hype over the ingredient may have motivated me to choose it. Great wine choices. No guarantees you will get the patio when you reserve as no way of doing so on Open Table. First come, first serve.

    The quality of the food was superb and the restaurant and patio were clean. The decor is very impressive and the patio is designed very well; we enjoyed having our meal outside! As our income is much less then their main/local demographic - MacTaggart & Magrath - we can't complain about the $150 bill, that's unusually high for us. Within walking distance, we would love to eat here every month or so, but the price will keep us to eating here maybe 2-3 times a year - a great place to bring friends, or the folks when they visit.

    ...that I find a restaurant where you can't go wrong no matter what dish you order. The bread, appetizers, and all the mains we ordered were amazing! The ahi tuna with noodles on a fork were my FAVOURITE and presented so uniquely. I also ordered the ahi tuna salad, which had the most ahi tuna I've ever seen on a plate from a restaurant. I ran out of salad before I did tuna, which makes me so happy <3 After one go this restaurant made my top 3 list in Edmonton.

    This is our second time in this restaurant and this time we were very disappointed. Food was good, but you cannot charge for regular Cabernet-Sauvignon from 2013 (very young wine, Australia, not France or Italy) 63 dollars per bottle. Just regular young wine which normally cost you $10 in the liquor store and maybe 25 in any other restaurant. Besides, the wine list is misleading, so you see the price per glass, but you think that this is price per bottle. The waiter could point on that, but he didn't. Very noisy restaurant.
