Diner Reviews
  • "The food and service was pretty much run of the mill. The food and service were very good, I just thought it wasn't outstanding for the price."
    Dined on 8/25/2014
  • "The best thing is good tasting food but over-priced. Service? Waiter was fairly good until we got our food. Then he pretty much disappeared. If it wasn't for the table beside us ordering drinks, we would not have seen him. If you cant keep track of your tables, you shouldn't be waiting in a restaurant. I tip you on the service you provide my table, not the party of 3 guys that are ordering lots of drinks!"
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "We had our girls night birthday dinner and the food was amazing. Great selection of wine. Service was a bit disappointing as the server would check on us and leave fairly quickly before we can ask a question or order. This was done a few times but gave us free desserts for it being a birthday dinner."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "Buck-a-shuck is the best! Many varieties of oysters from the East and West Coast. It's a really long wait though... Guess they don't have enough shuckers working."

  • "Von's is a great restaurant in a great neighbourhood. The service was excellent from the moment we walked in. Cory our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. He knew the menu and how entrees were prepared and was able to give alternatives as to side dishes, etc. We started with a coconut shrimp appetizer that was incredible. For an entree I had the salmon that was grilled perfectly and came on a bed of cassoulet type beans and some braised fennel. All delicious. My partner had the halibut that came with smashed fava beans and asparagus. It is such a treat to get fish that is not over-done. Great wines. It's for good reason this restaurant has been around for over 30 years."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Excellent service! The rack of lamb was a great choice. I will be returning to sample other menu options. Overall - this is a great spot."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "We were put off by our server. He didn't pay much attention. He took our food even if there's still food left. He never even asked first nor asked if we wanted the food wrapped. He took our platter I oysters even when there were still oysters left. I was still eating my prime run steak- slowly as we're talking while eating, but he just took my plate away-like he was rushing us. He was a bit presumptuous. Not sure if this is just how the dining part of Von's worked."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "My wife and I went to Von's last Saturday night for a special Anniversary dinner and were hit with major diappointment all the way around. The only good thing about the night was that our entrees were comp'ted but we didn't go there for a 'free' meal we went for an enjoyable one!! Our waitress was too busy at first but nice once she got to us. My prime rib was the most tastless piece of meat I have ever had, but cooked nicely. My wife had a ribeye steak that was to be done 'pink in the middle' that was cooked past well done and again, tasteless. I ordered a Monte Cristo coffee to enjoy with my desert and asked if I wanted whipped cream and of course I said yes, well they said they were out and it would be 15 minute wait so I got it without."

  • "All week me and my wife searched for places to eat in edmonton for my birthday. I am glad we had chosen vons as we had an amazing meal and drinks. Highly recommend the place to anybody who is looking for good quality food and service."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "The restaurant's decor is beautiful and sets a good mood, but that's about it. The service was slow after we were seated. Placed our wine order and waited, meanwhile we watched others be seated after us order their wine and receieve it...We waited half an hour just for appetizers, which seemed a bit much considering they were from the oyster bar. My husband and I both wanted the Ahi Tuna, but we're informed they were all out. We opted for the seafood dish for two. The crab was good, lobster over-cooked, mussels in chipotle tomato sauce delicious. We contemplated getting desert, but after waiting too long, we lost our appetite and had to request another waitress to get our tab. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "We've celebrated our anniversary at Von's several times and continue to return. The food is delicious and the service exceptional. Our waiter asked us if we were there for a special occasion. Our dessert was covered by the restaurant as an anniversary gift. Von's is a high class restaurant and we have recommended it several times."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Visited Von's quite few times before spoke highly of it until this visit. The food standard seemed to have dropped since last visit. Usually its full, and food and drinks are reasonabley on time but lounge was almost empty and food and our table waited too long for both. Took my parents who were visiting from niagra falls and it was there anniversaryhoping for the same experience and even my wife was baffled as to why our experience was this poor. Not sure Von's is the same place we thought it was. May be time to look for something that has the heart Von's used too."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "We sat inside whereas most sat outside. We were very pleased but the patio was clearly a draw for people. On a cooler day I'd have chosen the patio. Within our party I wasn't the only one that didn't like the prime rib but absolutely everyone else did so it was probably just me. The service was probably the best I have ever had and I dine out often. The server was attentive, timely, and remembered everything without an additional cue. He was the best part of the night and made our celebration special."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "My order was steak and tail of lobster (medium well).Waiters forgot to place my order of lobster after 40 minutes .I requested my lobster after, and she said "don't worry I won't charge the lobster because it was my foul"(unprofessional answer) Steak was over-cooked (well done) Rockefeller oysters were really bad and poorly made. 4 small oyster's that tasted fake and pre-made."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "There were 4 in our dinner party and we all enjoyed our meals. All meals were yummy with great presentation and flavours."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "it was our first time there and we will absolutly be back. our server corey, the food, the atmosphere, excellent."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Vons has the best prime rib in town! We sat down to an excellent wine recommendation, into a beautifully cooked appetizer of muscles. Then both enjoyed the prime rib with the candied sweet potato mash, and finally chocolate cake with pomegranate. Vons always exceeds my expectations with service and food! Cory G is by far one of the best servers I've had in the city."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We went to Von's on Sunday night, with friends, before seeing Wicked at the Jubilee. The waiter asked us what time we needed to leave and made sure we were out on time. The food and service were excellent. We'd have the filet mignon with blue cheese again for sure. We'll definitely go back."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Must have new cook food was fine but over cooked. For the price expect more than over Cooke ontrays and main course even cream brula"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We really loved Von's. The food was amazing. I would definitely eat there again."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I was expecting a lot based on past experience but I had not been there for a few years. Vons was everything I remembered and more. The service was outstanding, the food outstanding, and the atmosphere excellent. We went to Vons to celebrate a special occasion and were thankful that we chose the right place. An added bonus was that the prices were quite reasonable.We will be back for our next special occasion."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "The place itself looks very nice and romantic. But my overall experience was spoiled by the fact that I left the place hungrier than I was before entering it even after spending almost $100 for two. Small portions of food and lack of personell didn't help either."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Unfortunately disappointing. We try many restaurants through open table, but this one did not suit us at all."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "A wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion! The setting is quiet and romantic and encourages conversation as the tables are nicely spaced apart. The menu allows for a variety of taste choices. The prime rib was perfectly prepared and the steak oscar melted in my mouth and was complemented by the seafood atop of it. The ribeye steak was tasty and accompanying French fries were crisp. The wine list is extensive and our server recommended a delicious Malbec that complemented our meals beautifully. We finished our meals with the Tiramisu (delicately liqueur- flavoured and not too sweet) that generously allowed the four of us to enjoy it and not feel over stuffed. Von's is a definite keeper on our restaurant list!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "This is the place we head whenever we want a nice quiet evening and good food and wine. The service is always attentive but unobtrusive, the menu keeps the local favourites, and adds new items to reflect seasonal and local foods. It's always a winner"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Food service and atmosphere were perfect. Easley five out of five"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I had not been to Von's and always wanted to try it. I am glad I finally did as it was well worth it. We had the coconut shrimp appetizer and the shrimp cocktail. The coconut shrimp were only okay as they were overcooked and positively glued to the skewers making them hard to eat but the shrimp cocktail was outstanding, especially since the sauce is generously flavoured with horseradish. I had the crab dinner of king and snow crab and that was some of the best crab I have ever had. My hubby had the goat cheese filet which I tasted; the steak was very good but the cheese was a bit overpowering. There was just too much of it, which is not something you can say all the time so that was good and bad. I will definitely go back!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "I ordered a Rib Eye. It was good, but not much better than just cooking it at home on the BBQ. I expected better for a steakhouse and the price. Expected more tenderness and flavour."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We enjoyed our supper. It was delicious. Our server timed everything nicely as it was not too rushed. The food was hot and tasty. Dessert was a little confusing due to the ice cream but I thank them for not serving refrozen ice cream especially since cappuccino flavored is not one of my favorites so I had an opportunity to try the yoghurt cheesecake in a jar. Thank you for an awesome meal!!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I ordered a prime rib however a rib eye was delivered!! I told the waiter and he said he will have it exchanged. They dropped my shrimp and had to remake, when my shrimp was delivered it was xtremely raw and mushy on the inside! I almost lost my supper on the table! I do not expect this from Von's. Maybe Denny's!!!! And not even an offer of a discount on the meal!!! Discusted and will not return!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Food was good and typical in price to most up-scale places."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Von's is an excellent restaurant for any occasion. I came here to treat a lady and was very impressed with the speed and quality of the service as well as the exceptional menu selection. Von's hits incredible right on the dot with the quality of the food and provide a "just right" portion. I will recommend Von's to all my friends and definately make many more visits!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "this was the second time we had been to von's. we had the same waitress both times, and both times the service and the food were both fantastic! I would definitely go back again!:)"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The fresh oysters were just so fantastic, soft and tender and very fresh. The accompanying sauces also excellent, small dab just to offset the delicious oysters. The beef for main course, was as promised, outstanding. Very tender, cooked a little more than I requested, but no complaint, ate it all, very lovely."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We go to Von's every year for our anniversary and it has never let us down. Everything was perfect as usual and I believe our servers name was Allan and he was exceptional."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "While the variety and quality of food items are fantastic, it is the attentive yet non-intrusive service that makes Von's a regular spot for our special occasions."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We would consider VON 'S to be the first choice for any special occasion. It was my wife's birthday and the evening was 10 for 10 the server was particular outstanding"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We picked Von's for our wedding anniversary and had AMAZING service but unfortunately had average food. For a $175.00 bill we didn't feel that the quality was there. Their signature "Oscar" dish was nothing I would want to have again I found it to be quite bland, my husbands 17 oz steak was large but lacking in flavor and needed the au jus to give flavor. Don't think we will be returning."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Made reservations and asked for a quiet table and ended up by the entrance and where the kitchen was. The server did not have time for us and we were left alone for long time periods. The food would be a 5 out of 10. The Keg is way better for bacon wrapped scallops and prime rib. We probably will not come back."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Other than a large group that left part way through our meal the noise level was hushed conversational. The atmosphere and setting with lots of space between tables makes for a romantic evening. It was our 17th wedding anniversary and they provided us with a complimentary dessert, which they knew about since I filled in the special occasion section on the Open Table ap. Over all a great night out, but be prepared to part with a bill that has a picture of Sir Robert Borden on it at the minimum. "
