  • "I recently had the pleasure of taking some very special friends out for a BDay celebration dinner at Von's. The atmosphere was elegant and inviting, and the server was attentive and very friendly and courteous. The steaks were cooked to order and by all accounts perfect! There was something for all tastes and I thoroughly enjoyed my halibut special! I have been to Von's on several occasions and have had a great experience every time! I was proud to be able to treat the special people in my life to such a nice evening out! I would reccomend Von's Steakhouse and Oyster bar to anyone wanting a to enjoy a romantic evening out or celebrate a special occasion with friends/family!"

  • "Enjoyed a lovely dinner in the lounge area. Appetizers of oysters were very good and seeing as it's an oyster bar, my boyfriend and I decided to try some. The main meal came out warm and our waitress was very informative, friendly and helpful. I enjoyed their wine and cocktail selection as well. Overall, I think it was a lovely dining experience and I plan to go back!"

  • "Our server was stellar from the moment we sat down until we left for the evening! I left a note saying it was my cousin's birthday and our server instantly made her and us feel very special. We were able to joke around with him and feel so completely relaxed and in awe of the fabulous food and surroundings. You now have 3 new customers (I was already a regular :) ) so thank you for making me look good and helping me to introduce friends to a few new things!"

  • "All the food we had (seafood, salads, bread, dessert), was so flavourful!! Each one had such a different flavour it was hard to pick a favourite! The amount of falvour wasn't too much and no dish was ever bland. Even the butter was full of flavour!"

  • "It's not every day that one goes out for dinner and the server takes the initiative to correct a potential issue before it become one to the customer. We were a party for 4 and ordered a round of drinks to start. The server was pleasant and efficient. We ordered bacon wrapped scallops and half a dozen 'chef's choice' oysters. The chef chose well and the scallops were awesome. Once our dinners were ordered however, we waited, and waited and waited. It took a very long time to get our main courses, but the server kept us in the loop and was proactive in offering us her apologies and a complementary desert. The dinner was fantastic, The Service was stellar. The dessert was out of this world. I love VONS and recommend it to everyone."

  • "Von's is easily one of my favourite Edmontonian restaurants, especially for Sunday Buck-a-Shuck oysters. The oysters are always served fresh and cold, with a good selection of garnishes. I was fortunate enough to go last Sunday during an Oilers game and was able to order 1/2 price appetizers (a fantastic deal that more Edmo restos need). So with the great deal, I ordered the escargot, bacon scallops and coconut shrimp - every dish was delicious. My least favourite was the escargot, however I prefer them cooked in shell with butter and garlic - Von's take was had more vegetables and bread to go along with it. Of course I will be back - biweekly!"

  • "We were celebrating 15 years together and it was a great evening, we came for the buck a shuck, the waitress was great she knew her stuff about oysters so that was great....on top of the oysters we also ordered a regular meal with dessert and it was great!!!!! We will be back :)"

  • "My boyfriend had been wanting to go here for a while and boy are we glad we finally tried it. He loved the oysters and we enjoyed everything about our meal. It was romantic, the wine list was great and even got to sample some before buying a bottle. The waitress was very helpful in recommending the best ones. This is definitely a repeat place for us!"

  • "Took my girlfriend here for her birthday. The service was awesome, our server was excellent at explaining the different food choices and he made excellent recommendations. The food was unbelievable. Both my girlfriend and I said it was the best meal we have ever had. Bill was 150 for 2 apps, 2 steaks, desert and drinks. Quite reasonable for a special occasion. They also sat us right in front of the fire place which my girlfriend loved. Will definitely go again!!"

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful supper this past Sunday. Our group of 3 included myself, my boyfriend and his 87 year old mother. We were treated very well. Quit - we easily carried on a conversation. Our starters arrived fairly quickly - oysters and the baby beet salad. Supper took a little longer than I am used to but was worth the wait. Blackened Cajun rib eye, goat cheese tenderloin and the 7oz tenderloin. The roasted garlic was an awesome accompaniment! The Bar side was fairly busy but no noise or traffic from it in the dining area. Free parking right next to the restaurant when you register your plate with the hostess. Thank you for a great supper Von's - we will be back!"

  • "My husband and I dined at Von's recently (we hadn't been for a few years)....It's quite dark in the restaurant which I guess is nice if you're wanting a romantic dinner. The menu was varied...lots to choose from. The food was tasty but didn't have a 'Wow' factor. Plating was unimaginative. We found the dessert tray assortment to be totally old fashioned and quite honestly - everything looked quite dried out and unappetizing. We did share the little round donuts that are supposed to be fresh baked and shaken in sugar - they didn't meet the description! Our server was however, very attentive and our food arrived quickly-family style restaurant at best."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Four courses of perfect food. Friendly and attentive service. If you want to experience upscale dining without the fine dining price Von's is perfect. Chef Alex is doing some amazing things. You should definitely check it out."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Food was great, oysters were amazing. Just note their oyster special is only in their lounge which I find a little strange that we had to pay double because we booked a reservation, but they are top notch as good as most places in Calgary and Vancouver. Prime rib was great, drinks were good service was good, no complaints on this night out"

  • "Everyone at our table had an amazing dinner. The steaks were cooked to perfection. Very enjoyable evening, would definitely go back."

  • "My husband and I like to try different places. Von's has a very nice atmosphere and the food was good. The Oysters Rockerfeller were a little small but tasty. My steak was great. My Husband enjoyed his steak but was disappointed that he never received the HP sauce that he asked for. The service was good and the waiter knew his wines and was able to make a good recommendation. I found the menu very similar in price to Ruth's Chris, but a step down in the other areas. I would go again just to try the prime rib as it looked very tasty!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The service met beyond my expectation. The food was awesome! The wine was so much to select and affordable. I love the experience that I would like to come back for another special occasion with my family."

  • "We frequent Von's and decided to go there for Valentine's Day dinner. I was contacted twice to confirm my open table reservation. I have booked many times through open table and have never been a no-show so I found this frustrating. The staff emphasized on each call that we would have an hour and half to dine. That almost put us off - rarely would we spend longer when it's just the two of us, but we don't appreciate being told! Lastly, they had a fixed menu. It was okay. I had checked it out online prior to going so we knew what we were getting. We didn't enjoy it as much as usual, but that could have been because we were less than happy about the other issues. During our meal, there were many empty tables - maybe the plan backfired?"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This place was great! The service, the food, the portions, even the water was great! I don't love seafood, but I tried a bit of it here & it was delicious. My daughter, husband & I even tried the oysters, yummy!!!! The only thing I didn't love was the dent in my wallet when it was all said & done. However, for such a great meal, it was worth it!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "We had been to Von's before and loved it. This time was very dissappointing and we won't be back. We were brought the wrong wine, service was not attentive, the steak was overcooked and everything was over seasoned. The dessert tray looked old and dried out and needless to say unappetizing. We passed."

  • "We went here for my dads 60th birthday dinner. Food was tasty, I would say about the same as Keg, not really outstanding and 'wow' but good. The décor was beautiful and our waiter was fantastic. We tried 5 appies. 12 oysters, so delicious!! the coconut shrimp, venison carpaccio, crab fritters and the escargot. Crab fitters were meh. everything else was really good. Only 4 shrimp skewers though, so my dad hogged them all. We had the primerib (great), filet (mine: really good) and everyone else got the new York strip. no one complained. Then for his birthday treat, they brought out a crazy sparkler that was awesome. Made the night extra special. thank you!"

  • "This was my first time dining at Von's. Had always heard good things, but had never been. The food was really, really good. The vegetables, were vegetables. Not breaking any new ground here or doing anything special. But the meat was fantastic. Could not ask for a better cut of meat or have prepared any better. Service was really good. Can't remember our waitresses name, but she was very very good. Ambience was just sort of...meh. It was nice, but nothing that really stands out. Noise levels were good though. Restaurant was busy, yet it wasn't loud at all. If it weren't for the meat, this would just be an average nice restaurant, but the steak was so good, it's worth taking the time to head over there."

The food was fantastic it is hands down the best prime rib in the city. Von's also has an amazing selection of oysters. It was such a beautiful evening. And I will be back more often. Have try the buck a shuck."

  • "I had made a reservation several days before our dinner. When we arrived we asked to be seated downstairs but they said that it was all booked even though there were a number of empty tables. We were then seated upstairs under a cold air vent and were freezing. After speaking with 3 separate staff members we were finally seated downstairs as we had originally requested. After that the rest of the evening went very well.d"

I do NOT recommend going to Von's for holiday occasions, such as Valentine's Day especially because the meal was overpriced, and they impose a time limit on how long You can be there for. #meh"
