A word from Unheardof Restaurant
Unheardof has been serving quietly elegant and eclectic cuisine to Edmontonians for 30 years. Our menu, which changes regularly, is increasingly local, regional and seasonal - a balance between the familiar and the innovative. We do our best to accommodate most dietary needs - celiac, vegetarian, and heart healthy.
We are celebrating our 30th anniversary all year long, partnering with the Edmonton Food bank with our dollar a diner program and giving everyone who orders our regularly priced prix fixe menu a 30 in 30 certificate ($30 off a regularly priced entree within 30 days).
Order a la carte or prix fixe (tapas, any starter, sorbet, any entree, any dessert) at $70 per guest. Arrive by 6pm (and if your table is available for rebooking by 7:30 pm, that price becomes an amazing $55)

Plus there is no better spot to plan your special function - business or personal. We have two private dining rooms and decades of experience in helping make your occasions special

Diner Reviews
  • "We had been meaning to try out this restaurant for a long time, and finally did. Four of us enjoyed the early dining experience immensely, as the restaurant was not crowded, the food was fantastic, and the service experienced and friendly. We will return, and have recommended it to family and friends."

  • "I would not recommend this restaurant for a couple of reasons. It isn't terribly romantic as tables too close to others so conversations are overheard even at quiet level. I personally did not enjoy my entree, tenderloin Bison, I found it chewy and without much flavor, my vegetables were hard and tough to fork. My potatoes were very mediocre. I was expecting something very special as we attended this restaurant about 10 years back in one of the banquet rooms for a wedding and the food was very good. Not the memorable occasion I was hoping for to celebrate our first wedding anniversary."

  • "My spouse and I ate at Unheardof on the recommendation of a business associate from Edmonton. We were not disappointed at all. We opted for tablet d'hote 5 course option and the food was simply amazing. The size of the dishes was perfect and the flavours were delectable. Our server Alicia was wonderful and knowledgable regarding the menu and was very helpful in making suggestions. The restaurant itself is wonderful with an old English flavour. I will be recommending Unheardof to anyone I know travelling to the Edmonton area."

  • "We had a great time! The food was great, the ambiance just right for our special occasion. It was not noisy and allowed easy conversation. The service was excellent. All in all, we would definitely recommend this restaurant to others."

  • "We took my Mom out for a meal here while she was visiting, and we had been really looking forward to trying Unheardof after many good reviews. Was not super impressed. The delay between appetizer and entree was quite long. I ordered the rack of lamb, and it was overdone, and bland. Potatoes on my Mom's plate were so salty they were almost inedible. She ordered the bison, and the menu stated it would come mid-rare - it came pretty close to blue. For the price I won't be trying this restaurant again. Pretty disappointed. The only saving grace in my opinion was the french onion soup."

  • "The menus has some new items on it. The shrimp and ravioli was outstanding. May now be my top pick which is really something if you have had the seafood bisque. The food, staff and ambiance is always a 10"

  • "This was not our first time dining at Unheardof Restaurant and it won't be our last. The food, as usual, was very good. What was missing for me was a waiter who had a vast knowledge of wine pairings. Five or six years ago his was a familiar face but the past 2 times we have dined he was no where to be seen. That is a shame. His extensive knowledge of wine made Unheardof a rare find. It is still a treat though with an unhurried ambience and well worth the money."

  • "My wife and I had dinner here recently. My wife's app. of prawns & ravioli was excellent, but her duck was just good because the skin was not crispy. My app. of portabella mushroom was very good and also my bison steak. Overall the food was very good but nothing exceptional,especially when you consider the price. "

  • "This visit was a (rather belatedly collected) Christmas present. There is always a fear, when places come so highly recommended, that I might agree - not in this place. From initial greeting/orientation to the moment we left, everything was terrific (everything!)."

  • "Took a date for a romantic dinner before a play. We were a little bit time constrained and let the waiter know up front and they were very accommodating. The service was stellar and the amount of interaction was perfect, just enough to ensure we had everything for a wonderful dining experience, but not so much that you feel smothered. We had the table d'hote service, so we got to try appetizers, mains and dessert. Everything was excellent, beyond expectations really. Like the title says, I would definitely repeat at this restaurant."

  • "We always bring someone who has never been there before................they are never disappointed, and then of course the cycle continues, and they told two friends, and they told 2 friends, and so on, and so on, and so on............ "

  • "The Lobster Bisque was too die for, as was the Mango Cheesecake and Turtle Torte. Very knowledgeable servers with excellent suggestions and just the right amount of attention."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Ambience was very nice and quiet and comfortable. The service was great, the food for the most part was great, I did find the chicken dish a tad bit to salty. Otherwise everything was good."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "We finally decided to try the Unheardof at their recent 33 yr anniversary and took advantage of the over 55 special. Having driven by this restaurant for decades, I was pleasantly surprised by the quaint ambience upon entering. Food was fantastic and presentation equally so. Very civilized dining with the nice touch of sorbet to cleanse the palate between courses. Mmm. We hope to return soon. However the price point of the entrees may delay our visit for a little while. But definitely a nice evening out to mark a special occasion."

  • "This is an excellent place to dine out with a good friend. The food is 10 of 10. It is a good place to reconnect with your partner of many years in a great ambiance. It is always a great familiar place to come back to, like a real friend."

  • "We normally head here a couple times a year and I do believe only once were we ever disappointed. Meal on Saturday was excellent and service was great. Never walk out stuffed but always satisfied."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Unheard Of. We found the dining experience to be very average. The portebello mushroom apetizer was tasty, as was the small bowl of mushroom soup. We found the main dish to be very average though. The tenderloin was not overly tender. The salmon was ok, but nothing special. Overall the food did not match the price tag. The ambience was ok but you could tell not much updating had been done in the last 30 years. Lots of people in the restaurant although the average age was about 70. Maybe they are catering to more of a senior crowd who are nostalgic for the old days."

  • "Took my parents for their 59 wedding anniversary - we were well looked after and my parents enjoyed it very much - the food was fantastic - would definetely go back"

  • "My husband and I were on our date night when we came to un-heard of. The first thing I noticed was how dirty the walkway to the door was with cigarette butts and garbage. Seeing the garbage had alarmed me but as soon as I walked in the door I was pleasantly surprised. The interior was clean and decorated in lovely antiques. The first thing my husband and I did when we were seated as close the blinds so the dirty exterior didn't take from the beautiful interior. The service as good, the food was delicious and dessert was yummy. The only down side was we ordered a bottle of Moscato wine and it was the last bottle with no other moscato available. Overall we had a wonderful evening and the food did not disappoint."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Although my husband and I love the food at the Unheard Of, the impeccable service is nearly as much a draw for us. The care and solicitude to patrons, attention to detail and obvious love of good food and ability to explain what goes into every item on the menu is impressive.This is service we don't see anymore and no longer expect, but what a treasure when we find it. The food is simply outstanding."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "I felt the price was very high it was close to $200 when we all said and done and really the food wasn't that flavorful or impressive for that price in my opinion. I felt it lacked almost bland to me.....I say if price was a bit more reasonable it be a nice place for sure but really I felt for $$$$ we expected more. Desserts seemed dry to, not really fresh...."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Food was fine but over prized. Services were ok not really professionally with the way they charged for the food."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "This is a place that I have wanted to try out for many years and finally did our first visit...Wow...I took my husband there for his birthday. The seafood bisque was truly the best he had ever had. he said he would go back and just have the bisque by itself, maybe even two bowls of it....and he has never said anything like that before :) The service was incredible. what a great team, knowledgeable,friendly and professional and appeared to work very well together. All the food was great. Definitely on my favourites list."

  • "My husband and I have been attending this restaurant for a few years and like to take guests out with us to share an amazing food experience. We have NEVER been disappointed and neither have our guests."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "This is a nice little restaurant with really good food. The decor is terrible and highly outdated. My husband and I shared the ravioli for an appy which was amazing! I could have eaten ten plates of that and nothing else. I had the lobster which was also very good, nice light curry flavour. My husband had the ginger steak, which he enjoyed but I found too strong on the ginger side. Dessert was really nice too. I had the turtle tart and my husband had the chocolate lava cake. No complaints with either!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Great food. Kind people. Super experience overall. They were only 2 waiters for the entire restaurant so it made the service a little slow. If you are not in a hurry, the wait is totally worth it. The quality of the food and its presentation were just amazing."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "My Wife and I decided to reserve here for my Birthday after having heard many good things about the restaurant. We were not disappointed at all. The food was exception, the service was top notch, and we had a wonderful time out. I highly recommend trying it out."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "salt was the main flavour, the vegetarian option was nice on paper but sadly difficult to get through half when in the flesh. maybe we've been spoiled elsewhere and we moved to the neighbourhood (and AB) and thought we'd celebrate our double birthday week with this 34 year institution...but alas. "fair" overall, mainly bc of the food. potato latke with braised tomatoes and salty something'rather for $30, hummm. duck was passable but nothing extraordinary. the cesar drink was good however. wine list looked good, didn't indulge."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "If you are looking for a place to take your significant other that will be memorable for food and ambience this is the place. Premium western menu, great wine and service. It's not cheap but it really is top tier! This is the place for anniversaries, valentines and special occasions!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "some of the reviews I read on Open Table prior to going to unheard of made me wonder if I had made a bad decision, never having eaten at this place before. After having dined there I can say that everything is top notch, the food is very well prepared, the service is professional and attentive and the décor is warm and inviting with just a little bit of eclectic. I would definitely come back again, on this night there were only 2 other couples in the place so some aspects may be different on a busier night."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Overall a lovely place to dine for a special occasion or just some great good. The Lobster Curry was a little salt. We also had the Cheese Board for dessert. I was a tad disappointed that they served store bought Melba with the fabulous cheese?"

  • "We went for dinner and the menu on open table is not the menu they have there. Being a vegetarian and only having one option, this was disappointing because I really wanted the vegetarian dish that was listed online and that's why we chose this restaurant. The food was pretty bland but the dessert was AMAZING. I would go back just for dessert. They should really update the decor. There were 3 undecorated artificial Christmas trees of varying sizes in the lobby and front entrance which I found a bit odd since it was the end of January and the rest of the decor was out of date. Service was very attentive and they knew a lot about the menu and gave us a great overview."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The starter was pretty good but my main dish was pretty disappointing, salty mash potato and the veggies on the side were like the ones I cook at home so, when I go to a fancy restaurant I like to eat better that I do at home. Services was great and kind if a cute restaurant."
