The Makk on 124
First time here. We will be back.The food here was excellent. Perfectly prepared beef and the whipped potatoes were amazing. On the other side of the table the scallops and shrimp were also a hit. But that fork crossing the table to share the beef dish was evidence of how good that was.
Our server was friendly and helpful and made sure our dining experience was enjoyable. Just the right amount of attention without interruption of our conversation.12/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Full PackageMy wife and I checked out the Makk on 124 based on word of mouth reputation. We weren't disappointed. From beginning to end, the service and food were wonderful. I especially appreciated the creativity that went into each of the dishes. Flavor, plating, amount were all spot on!
We will definitely be back, and Makk is just one of a number of fantastic small restaurants that are opening in Edmonton. So long big chain restaurants. Can't say I'll miss you!9/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTry It!Definitely exceeded my expectations. You could tell the food is thoughtfully prepared and well presented. I had the lobster salad to start, and this might be one of the best salads I have ever had. I had the mac and cheese which was rich, warm, and filling. My wife had the pad thai, and having just returned from a trip to Thialand, I'd say this was a very well done pad thai by North American standards. Flour-less chocolate for desert and it was exceptional. Great service. Overall great experience.8/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGirlfriends night outLoved our meal, service and location:). Totally recommend it!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!!!Great food, great atmosphere, awesome service would definitely come back again6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant surpriseMy wife and I were very impressed by the high quality, taste, and execution of the food. Our tortellini trio appetizer was excellent, my beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection and the flavor was outstanding. The flour-less chocolate cake and sorbet for dessert were both delicious as well.
We were impressed by the bright yet comfortable decor and ambiance as well. The staff are friendly, courteous, and do no give airs or attitude. A very comfortable place to go and have high end food served professionally but without attitude. I really want to try the scallops next time as they looked fantastic going by our table.
I highly recommend a try!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinnerBeen meaning to try The Makk for a while & finally got there. Wasn't disappointed - especially since we had just been to a restaurant downtown that had come highly-recommended and turned out to be one of the worst meals we've had in #yeg.
At The Makk, the appetizers, mains and desserts were all delicious and full of flavour, we had a nice bottle of wine, and the service was friendly - we will definitely go back & will defnitely recommend. Nice to also know they are open late!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThree times!I've been there three times in the last month. Once for late-night snacks and wine, and twice for lunch. The food is really good. The late-night snacks were especially economical. The dishes have all been good. Tartlet, satay, salads have all been great. The gado-gado was ok. Not the same as I've had before.
The service is good, and not too pretentious.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMtastyReview based on prior experience there. Everything was delicious, but found the lamb portion a bit small. Also found the selection of cognac lacking. Minor quibbles.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good, just shy of excellentOur group of eight visited the Makk on Mother's Day. The Makk is a pleasant surprise. The location is handy. The staff were friendly and solicitous. The Mother's Day menu was "egg-heavy" with little variety for those not fond of eggs. The food was served HOT! Yay! I shared my extremely large frittata with others. The music was louder than necessary for a Sunday brunch! It made it very difficult to hear conversation from one end of the table to the other. Overall, I will return to the Makk for a regular dinner and try some of the delicious-looking menu items. Thank you to the Makk staff for a mostly pleasant dining experience!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!Super delicious Mothers Day brunch! We had fritattas, pork tenderloin benedict and beef benedict. Coffee was good and the complimentary chocolate mousse was to die for! We were greeted at the door and made to feel welcome. Decor is warm and trendy. Music was a good mixture and upbeat. Service was attentive. We can't wait to come back for dinner5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchWe enjoyed the brunch and after looking at the menu decided we would like to try dinner here sometime.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLoud, overpriced but great food.We had mothers day brunch at Makk, so not a fair sampling of the regular menu, but the food was excellent. I saw a few items on the lunch menu i would want to go back and try. They had tenderloin or prawn benedict and their chef knows how to make a hollandaise! It definitely would have been nice to have some potatoes or vegetables on the side, especially at the price.
I found the restaurant very loud, its a small place.
The teapots are almost impossible to pour without spilling water everywhere, but fortunately the water wasn't all that hot. My tea never steeped properly and even when i asked for really hot water it barely steamed, after brunch i had a cappuccino which was watery, clearly their espresso machine is not well calibrated.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI delightful casual cafe wonderfulI delightful casual cafe wonderful food and attentative service strange wine list ...good value . i id not recognize any ofthe wines who know s5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday Brunchgreat place for Sunday brunch. The menu has a variety for everyone choosing, plates are appealing served.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVery ImpressiveThe main courses were vrey good and the atmosphere was great. We found the prices a bit high, but like the fact we can walk to a nice restaurant.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA risk well-takenWanted to try something new... glad I did. Food was excellent, service was a bit slow, but it was very busy... maybe busier than they expected... service is something easily fixed.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place if you can find parking.We were there for lunch. It was quiet because there was almost no one else there at first, although it filled up a bit. Food was good enough that I will definitely be back, and prices were reasonable. The only drawback to this restaurant that I could see is a serious lack of parking.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!The Alberta beef duo is to die for! Service slow but very professional.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMmac and cheeeseShared the MAC and Cheese ( delightful) and the Prawns appetizer... wonderful nice presentation, and very tasty - coffee, not bad.1/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
