    we were fortunate to have had a lovely table with no one stuck beside a wall. the service and food was excellent. Timing of the courses could not have been better we only had one thing that 2 of us didn't care for, that was the cheesecake dessert. the chocolate dessert was wonderful and next time I will order it. A special place for a special occasion.

    Ok meal..very pricey! salmon was dry, outer crust was a overdone. Was thinking of soufflé dessert although we were told a 30 min wait, we had no issues with the wait, although our server seemed to try to discourage us from choosing it. We had a reservation and were seated, we then asked if we may have a booth and was told by host that no booths available and then was sat at a table, 5 mins later was approached by owner and was told that they have a regular customer that insisted he have his regular table, that they sat us at, and we would have to be done in an hour, or we could move to another table, if we needed longer. We agreed to go to another table, as we were celebrating a birthday and didn't need to be rushed.

    Even if the occasion is "just because", Wildflower is the place to go! Right from the host who greeted us at the door and continued to check in with us through the evening, through to Allistar who served us just the right amount of professionalism and humor to the absolutely picture perfect plates. My daughter and I had a perfect evening. Whe she didnt care for the amuse bouche they gave us- it was immediately replaced with another. When a larer table beside us started to infringe on us- we were immediately offered a move. The crab cakes, watermelon salad, Bison and veal were all spectacular- but the highlight of the evening was the dessert souffle. Absolutely worth the wait! At $100pp with cocktail and wine a very special evening.

    our first dinner on our own after 9 months ... great waitress (Kamilla), good wine selection and tasty cocktails, food was excellent and no problems to eat gluten-free (best GF brioches) - mains (beef cheeks and filet rossini) were excellent and large - almost unfortunate as we could not order dessert - while it's on pricey side, it was appropriate and comparable to other similar places in town

    Met up with some friends for a return visit. All portions of the meal were excellent, service was spot on and we appreciated the owner informing us as to the special features of each course. Spectacular wine list. There was a bit of kitchen noise; if we sat any closer it would have been intrusive.

    I like this restaurant, the food is always very good and the pairings are interesting. The wine list is fine although sometimes they do not have the bottle you ask for. The service was extremely slow on the last night we visited. This restaurant is at risk of pricing itself out of the market. It is now one of the most expensive restaurants in the city.

    We were here this past weekend for my fiance's birthday. We ordered drinks to start which were both creative, tasty and well presented. The beef carpaccio with truffle fries was an excellent starter. The bison duo and beef cheeks were both very tasty and well presented. The bison tenderloin was especially a standout and would strongly recommend it. We finished with the baked Alaska which while good wasn't my favourite. More than the food though the service was professional, helpful and attentive which is a rarity in Edmonton. This isn't a value find but the food and service is worth the price.

    Five of us went for dinner. Unfortunately, the service was pretty slow until one of our party made it quite clear to our server that we were going to be spending a lot of money and that it would be worth his while to be a little more attentive. This was only after we had waited for 20 minutes before a drink order was taken. The food was really great, the wine list is also great, and the atmosphere is pretty good, although we were a little annoyed to be sitting right next to the kitchen. $1000 later, we had a really great time, but it was a little too bad that we had to make it clear that we were going to be spending money before we got good service.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    Was there a year ago. And returned again this year. While still good,felt the quality of the food has dropped.Beef carpaccio was a bit "busy", the sauces/salad etc. which over powered it. Duck Confit quite good.Veal was just a big hunk of char broiled meat. No creativity. Was also a bit salty. Sea Bass was quite good especially the parmasean risotto. YUM.Strawberry shortcake......dont even bother. Was like a piece of cake with a fruit roll up on top.A bit over priced, especially for the mains.Also they have changed their menu, which is different from their online menu. Felt the main dishes lacked variety.Service was great as always. Wine list is also good. Will probably return, but the "wow" factor of the food is just not there any more.

    Contemporary atmosphere, but still managed to feel cozy with beautiful lighting and partitioned off areas. Lovely. Food was amazing ... the two-fish dish beautiful on the plates, the fish delicate and yummy, and the bison two-ways also perfect. The disappointment: A meal this pricey should be an "evening out" - and it could have been - but although we eat out every Saturday night at some place wonderful in the city, we could not support this restaurant in its audacity, paying $25 for one 9 oz. glass of chardonnay. So, this should have been - could have been - a perfect evening out if we had lingered over two glasses of wine instead of nursing only one over 80 minutes. Shame. We might also have enjoyed dessert otherwise.

    This was my third time here, first time reviewed. As always, the food was excellent. Carpaccio and truffle fries are my go to, and the scallops were quite good, although we did not overly care for the excessive dill in the sauce on the polenta, but that is simply preference. I had the Bison Tenderloin two ways, with spaghetti squash, asparagus, and a bacon bread sort of concoction which I could have done without honestly. The bison was fantastic in both dishes. Asparagus is asparagus, and the spaghetti squash was interesting and flavorful, but not my preference again. Unfortunately, the service was below average - took nearly 10 minutes for wine order. And there were some loud tables around us. Wouldn't deter me from returning though.

    Impeccable service and incredible taste explosions made for a very enjoyable night at the Wildflower! Had the filet Mignon for entrèe and as we had been at Ruth's Chris recently we could not help comparing! Our conclusion...steak on steak Ruth's Chris had the edge but for overall presentation and taste the Wildflower's combination of mash, truffle and broccoli made the entrèe divinely delicious and superior. Love the ambience, the decor and the vibe at the Wildflower. Expensive but extremely tasty, we shall return!

    First visit disappointing. Booked online as our anniversary, asked for a nice table, location was so-so. The server (Eric) given to us seemed very new, young. Couldn't give an indication of the flavour of one of the cocktails. Did not realize it was our anniversary dinner until we were ready to pay the bill. Excuse-he was busy, over-whelmed. It was busier when we left at approx 8:45 than when we arrived at 7. Martinis served in cheap martini glasses with 'clubhouse sandwich' toothpicks. Really-for a nice restaurant? Serrano ham over-powered the beautiful gnocchi. Appetizer portions were great!! (Gnocchi and 3 mushroom ravioli-delicious!) Too much deep fried for the salmon/crab entree.
