The patio could use some sprucing up... Lattice is a wee bit tired, but lunch was lovely. Lobster and crab cakes were delicious as was house brewed ice tea. Great lunch and excellent service.

Great lunch date with my friends.
It was nice to see the previous waiters that we knew from before as well as my nephew!

Great Birthday night out
I came here because it was a special Birthday dinner for my girlfriend and I and was not disappointed. The food and service was amazing, I had the steak and without a lie it was the single most greatest steak I've ever had, cooked perfectly and tasty as could be. We both enjoyed wine and the delicious pastries served complimentary. Our server was great and even said Happy Birthday to my girl and had placed the flowers I had ordered on the table before we arrived. Thank you for a memorable night out.

This is my favorite restaurant
This is my favorite restaurant in Edmonton! The food and service are always top notch! We sat on the patio which is nice but the traffic on 124 St made it hard to truly enjoy.

Good, not perfect
My wife and I went to celebrate a wedding anniversary. They offer 2 different "de Ville cocktails" (not cheap) and we each tried one. My wife thought her drink tasted like it had powdered ice tea in it. Our waitress was very attentive and she explained that the iced tea in the drink is brewed in-house and then she listed out all of the fresh ingredients. She did offer to bring something else. That was a bit embarrassing so I did not mention that my drink tasted like Sunny D.
My wife had a rack of lamb and it was excellent. I had the special - Artic Char. It was nicely prepared but it was a square of fish, not a fillet. So, the portion sizes vary and I don't like that.
Dessert was really good.

Great Dinner for 37th Anniversary
Had mentioned in my reservation that I came with a walker and the maitre d' was already out on the street offering assistance. The staff were most gracious and helpful with minor requests about the menu. The food was wonderful and the ambience superb. Thank you for a great dinner.

A very popular Sunday brunch
A very popular Sunday brunch or Valentine's Day dinner spot. Always worth the reservation!
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another fine feast was had!
I love the fact that they use local meats and produce! My friend could not get over how delicious the stuffed chicken was and my seafood pasta was awesome!
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
quick friendly service, with just the right amount of checking back by our waitress to keep the setting alive. Great food - salmon special was divine. I would highly recommend this for a business lunch or a romantic dinner perhaps too;)

Long term gem returns to form
Cafe de Ville has been a "go to" spot for years. It has always been worthwhile, but the current chef has brought the food back to its best form. We greatly enjoyed our meal there and the service was excellent as well. Our mussel appetizer was outstanding.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lunch with a friend. Both enjoyed the salmon - cooked perfectly with just the right amount of veggies and rice. Great service! Will come again.

Lovely cosy little restaurant. Everything about it was perfect my cosy birthday dinner.

Our server was friendly but
Our server was friendly but not overbearing and didn't interrupt after he was sure we were satisfied with our meal. The food was delicious and pleasingly arranged. The patio which is vine covered is lovely though a couple of motorcycles interrupted the ambience. The wine list is more an adequate and the desserts were lovely.
I have never been disappointed with the food or service at Café de Ville. It is one of my favourites.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
An excellent night of dining
An excellent night of dining with Dan ( I'm pretty sure it was Dan) as our server. He was engaged, helpful & attentive.
All food choices were excellent.
We sat on the deck & persevered the noise from the traffic on 124th Street.
Others moved into the restaurant after trying out the deck for a short period.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great way to celebrate a birthday
Thought we'd try this restaurant after reading other reviews, and I'm glad we did. The food was fantastic & the service was outstanding!!!

Feta Polenta with Fresh Herbs
It was a very nice surprise to find I could book this restaurant online only two hours in advance, and find that we were expected on arrival....my first time booking a restaurant online. It was lovely to dine in a bright, clean restaurant. The polenta with mushroom sauce was as unique as it was delicious! Hot and flavourful. Neither of us like ice water, and the waiter changed it immediately.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
"I love this restaurant, the atmosphere is like being in a café in Paris. The carrot-ginger soup was amazing and the mussels are the best in town. We always order more of their baked dinner rolls when we go, they are made fresh daily at the restaurant. I ordered their special that night,; talapia wrapped in a banana leaf, YUM, YUM! I would order it again. It was tender, juicy, flavorful and had a little kick to it. Desserts are a must at Café de Ville. When eating out I usually never order a desert, however, at Café de Ville its a must and you're never disappointed. Service was well-time, friendly and you never felt rushed.

Anniversary dinner done well
We had our anniversary dinner on Sunday evening and there was not many people in the main dining area, which was nice because we wanted to keep the noise levels low so we can talk. The decor reminded me of past generations but it set the mood for a old fashioned romantic dining experience. Service was prompt and very friendly. Made us feel at ease and she was great at building rapport immediately. The food was excellent and in decent proportions. We had the Thai salad for starters and we both shared the Carbonara and Kashmir. All meals were excellent and would definitely go back again.

Lunch with a friend
The day was gorgeous, so opted for dining on the patio to take advantage of a late summer afternoon. Service was prompt and accomodating of my friend's guide dog. We both had their daily feature of soup and sandwich- both soups were exemplary and reflected the chef's skill. The highlight was dessert- we shared chocolate cream puffs with a salted caramel sauce- ridiculously rich and delicious.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderfuol dinner here on a Wednesday night. Were able to sit outside on the little terrace. The food was outstanding - can especially recommend the rack of lamb. Everything was delicious, well served, and it was a totally relaxing, enjoyable evening - well done.

Hadn't been to Cafe de Ville
Hadn't been to Cafe de Ville in a number of years, and overall was glad to return. The service was very good...there was an obvious hold up in the kitchen with our dinner order, but the wait staff was great.. The scallop starter was very impressive...done to perfection. While we all enjoyed ourselves, there was still something missing...not sure what it was exactly, but Im not eagerly anticipating my next visit. Maybe because nothing made us sit back and proclaim 'wow'??
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent and attention to detail
We took our daughter for her 17th birthday dinner to Cafe deVille. It was her choice and she didn't want any mention that it was her birthday. Our server took a couple of photos or us, asked the occasion and at the end of our meal brought out our daughters desert with one candle in it. It was a very classy move and much appreciated.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gluten free choices
I really appreciated the assistance our server gave to my mom about gluten free choices. There were many, and the ones she picked were very tasty. The bread was especially good.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of our favorite places
We had booked a table for 2 and when we arrived notice there was major work being done on the street right out front. After being seated our server was quick to take our drink orders and was there for us on time all night. We quickly forgot about the work out front when we tasted our amazing appetizers and main course orders. Water was topped up several times, food was prompt, empty plates never sat more than a moment. A very nice experience, as it has been for us over the years. Always a favorite for us.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been coming here for years and have always had excellent food. A real romantic place for couples.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sixteen years after the wedding, our Best Man, states he wants to take us out to dinner. We just had to choose the place. Nothing too far from our West End Valley View neighborhood, we didn't want to dress up but we wanted good food and choice. None of us has the hearing ability we had 20 years ago so a large, noisy cavern is not our thing. Cafe de Ville came to mind and we did not regret our choice. Ten minutes to 124 Street and Parking was easy right behind their building. Our table was ready right on timely bough a bit crowded in its corner location by the bar. Service was immediate with specials and wine order. A slightly longer than usual wait for our food (rack of lamb, tuna, and filet) but it was fabulous! We all loved our choices.

Delicious Thanksgiving dinner
They had me at the grande marnier cranberry sauce. One of my favorite restaurants. Always good, but the Thanksgiving dinner was even better.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
1st time we tried this restaurant as it was recommended by a friend, Great atmosphere, wonderful food and delicious deserts. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will put this on my list as one of my favorites. Your great evening starts with incredible service and a jovial and very professional Server. We were all very satisfied when we left.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a favourite!
We've frequented the Cafe de Ville over 25 years now, and have never had a bad meal. It's always been a joy to be there.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Out with a friend- gracious, accomodating service as usual. Lunch specials are always interesting-love the choice of soups
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
A little Gem
I did find a review on the web a few years back as I was searching for a french place to take my wife on our anniversary since she is from France. It was the perfect place to spend our 25th years together. I recall it was in september and we dine on a sunday evening on the terrasse. The service was professional and the menu offers a good selection of refine plate. The selection of wine is very subtile.
We went back a few time since and it has never been a disapointment. The service is excellent, the meal is perfect from entrees to dessert.

Fabulous place; very European
Fabulous place; very European feeling and the food was terrific. Would come back again anytime.

Leaves You Wanting More and More
Cafe de Ville is such a terrific restaurant. I always feel like I am walking into a family member or friends home when I walk into the doors. The ambience suits me so well that no matter what mood I am in it always brightens. My personal favourite meal is the Kashmir chicken. Whenever I order it, no matter who is in our party, always wants a bite and wishes they had ordered the dish. Kudos to the chef for this delectable dish. No matter how many restaurants I try, always come back to my favourite Cafe de Ville.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been to this restaurant several times over the years and continue to return.. The food is always consistently very good and the service friendly and efficient. The Popcorn Butter Creme Brûlée that we had during our recent visit was probably the best we have ever had. This is a great restaurant for a quiet intimate dinner with friends or family.

Our first time to Cafe deVille
Our first time to Cafe deVille and it was excellent in all ways - can't think of anything negative to say!

Marvellous for lunch
See earlier reviews. We take my husband's mother (she is 90) and she eats her whole meal and most of the wonderful croissants provided. She usually has a small appetite and she loves your menu. My husband and I also have been dining at Cafe de Ville since the nineties Please share my comments with the folks at Cafe.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
I would recommend Cafe de ville anytime for lunch. Good quality of meal.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
A nice evening out
We had an early dinner before going to the theatre but, by about 6 PM, the restaurant was pretty much full -- you need a reservation here during the evenings.
Our dinners were very good; we have been at this restaurant a number of times as we quite enjoy it.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Cozy and Romantic!
Perfect little romantic getaway with a cozy atmosphere. Excellent food served with professional, friendly and efficient service! Excellent wine selection... Definitely a place you will want to experience more than once!
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Cafe Deville is a gem on 124 Street. It bustles with people if all ages but yet you can still have a nice relaxing lunch or dinner without having to yell in order to be heard. Very nice atmosphere & super friendly staff you cater to your every whim. Definitely a wonderful dining experience! Tres chic in every way!!!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
The brunch menu has a broad array of choices. The soufflé with mushroom ragout was excellent and my partner had the Eggs de Ville, a eggs Benedict on brioche. Both were very tasty and we were very satisfied with our brunch, not to mention the selection of pastries they greet you with upon arrival. Overall a noteworthy brunch, we will be back.

Great place for lunch
Great place for lunch. Always an interesting lunch special; and the soup/sandwich special is always good.

A terrrific evening!
We enjoyed a celebration dinner with wonderful attention from our waiter, a quiet atmosphere for chatting/celebrating, and not a moment's feeling of being rushed. It was the perfect environment for our gathering. We started with salads, all had sea food mains (the salmon with chutney, and the char special as well as one shellfish dish)..the plates were all left bare and the shells got a to-go container - which says it all...the food was marvelous. Beautiful service throughout, the wine and water glasses were quietly attended and everything was lovely...it felt like we were at a wondeful catered home dinner party!
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a good experience
My wife and I have been going to the cafe de Ville for years, usually 1 or 2 times per year. We have not been to the 124st location for a couple of years. I went for a business lunch with a potential client and it was perfect. As per the survey, everything was very good. We have had romantic and group dinners, and now a business lunch. Always a good experience.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great friends, great dinner!
Booked Cafe deVille for dinner with friends. Hadn't been here in years and turned out to be a great choice. Relaxed atmosphere, great food and great company.

We both had the cran-buca
We both had the cran-buca pasta dish an the pesto sauce is so amazing that I think my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Excellent meal and nice wine list.

Excellent food, excellent service
Hi hosted a colleague at Cafe de Ville and would do that again in a heartbeat. The food and service were outstanding!
12/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Definitely a "Keeper" on our list!
Our group was under a bit of time pressure between a concert and another event. On-line reservation process worked out great. Service was prompt and attentive. We ordered soups, salad and the crab lobster cake appetizers, which all tasted wonderful. Very nice plate presentation. Welcoming ambience. Will definitely go back, and will recommend to friends.
