    Food was fantastic , server great - My only complaint is , there should be a seperate room for larger groups, such as a corporate christmas party. the noise level was so loud we could barely have a conversation . It's a very small place so more ' cozy ' and can get loud

    We have been here a few times and the experience has always been the same. The food and service is fantastic. Have been able to get reservations every time but would recommend a table away from the kitchen as it is a little loud and lots of movement with the staff doing their jobs ...which they do so well. The little added touches are great. I won't spoil the surprises for the first timers. Love it here

    Wildflower Grill was my daughter's favourite restaurant while studying at UofA. it was fitting that we would celebrate her grad there. i requested a nice table but got seated one table away from the kitcken (lots of traffic and noisy). Server was very knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive until we paid the bill. We were never offered refill on water or nothing while finishing up our wine. Kitchen ran out of the lamb shank at 7:30pm on a Wednesday. Bread was amazing, great presentation.

    I wanted to go to the Wildflower because I knew that there would be a variety of food options. I enjoy trying different things but some of the men in our group are not too adventurous. They were a little disappointed that both the New York steak and the lamb was not available. Other wise the food was tasty and I would go back.

    Overall the restaurant was good. My husband and I were really excited since we read they specialized in wild game, but were disappointed that there was barely a section on wild game. Overall service was good, our waitress was very friendly; our order did come out wrong, but was promptly corrected and we received a complimentary salad while my husband waited. Food was great and the bread they bring to the table was to die for!! We ordered crab cakes as a starter, salmon and filet minion as our mains and delicious sorbet as our dessert. The atmosphere was a bit loud which made it a little difficult to chat with my husband.

    My date and I dined here for the first time and were impressed. The restaurant came highly recommended from friends and we definitely agree. The ambiance was great for a date and the server was knowledgeable and pleasant and made recommendations when asked. My date had the braised beef cheeks and I had the sea bass. We couldn't decide which dish we liked best. Overall it was a great experience, I will definitely go back and recommend to others.

    I booked a table through opentable and asked for a 'more private' table as it was my birthday. We were seated right by the door (I watched the hostess fold napkins) it could have been worse but there were quieter tables available. Our food was brought too quickly; the bread dishes were not cleared before the appetizer came and my spouse did not finish his appetizer before the main came. We were constantly eating and became very full quickly (too full for dessert). Portions were large. The beef carpaccio, duck appi, and bison main were excellent, the New York steak was gristly and I could eat very little of it. A Chinese take out menu included with the bill ended the evening. Some of the experience was very good, some was not.

  • A Must Try
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/7/2014
    I try to visit a different restaurant every time that I go out to eat. Having heard good things about the Wildflower, I decided to give it a try. Although fairly subtle from the outside, the inside is nicely decorated and feels very inviting a warm. All members of the staff were extremely helpful, polite, and timely in their actions. Each course of the meal was simply delicious and the fish was some of the best that I have had anywhere (an unexpected find in Edmonton of all places). The experience was a bit on the pricey side and it is not the type of restaurant you would go for everyday, but it as a tremendous location for a special event or a romantic night out. I would highly recommend giving it a try!

    Poorly trained waiter, clattered cutlery onto our table, tilted the plates when serving and wrecked its presentation. The hostess used a non-discrete (i.e., loud and carrying) voice to chat to the bartender, in little gatherings with wait staff near where we were sitting (for a quiet romantic dinner), and later, at a table not being used by patrons. The appetizers were wonderful, yet the food quality went downhill from there. The mains had little imagination with greasy, undercooked and then overcooked fish and what I might find at a chain restaurant. Getting this type of service and food from a chain restaurant wouldn't be unexpected, but here! Certainly subpar from what we have had at Wildflower Grill a year ago. We will not return.

    The food was excellent and the service was good however I think that being a downtown restaurant and a lot of people are going to come for lunch you need to spped things up a bit. Most people have a one hour lunch break and it took us 45 minutes to get our food. We had to eat real quick to get back to work.

    Very convenient restaurant adjacent to the Matrix Hotel. Busy at lunch. Our food was good, we had Roast Beef with Yorkshire Pudding and Seafood Fettucine. However, I would choose something else next time, especially not the RB and Yorkshire Pudding. The pudding was so hard we couldn't cut it with knife and fork. The Fettucine was okay--- could have used a bit more shrimp or scallop. When we arrived at the restaurant we were seated immediately by a friendly woman at the front and were given our drinks right away---then we got lost in the lunch time shuffle. In spite of being ignored by our designated waitress at first, we enjoyed our lunch and will certainly go back to Wildflower again.

    Went to the Wildflower Grill for supper. The service was excellent and the food even better. The menu offers plenty of choices and the food is really exquisite. Not your everyday restaurant. The pace of the meal was conducive to enjoying our company and an evening out. I will continue to take my foodie friends and use this restaurant for special occasions.

    The Wildflower Grill is my favourite restaurant in Edmonton for great tasting food. I'm quite a good cook myself, and when I go to a restaurant where I might spend $30 per person, I'm usually disappointed. Not at the Wildflower. The food is consistently outstanding. The atmosphere is classy and romantic, but somehow still relaxing. It's a great place for a fancy date or a celebratory dinner for a small family.

    My husband and I wanted to celebrate my 40th birthday with a special dining experience. When I made the reservation, I specified that it was my 40th birthday and that we would like a quieter table. When we arrived, we were seated at a horrible table with a view of the kitchen next to a 20-person party that was quite loud (despite the fact that there was an open table for two in a quiet corner by the window). Determined to make the best of it, we decided to toast my 40th with some bubbles. The wine list didn't include any champagne or California sparkling wine by the glass - just Prosecco and a dubious sparkling from the Okanagan. Despite ordering 6 different items, they all tasted the same - buttery with a hint of truffle oil. Meh.

    It had been a few years since we last went to the Wildflower, but we were very happy with our meals. My husband gobbled up the fresh baked brioche and a starter Ceasar salad (artfully presented, if a little difficult to eat the daikon radish wrapped around the greens without a few splatters). I had the bison two ways and thought the plate was quite creative with fun flavours and I enjoyed the range of textures. If you're a party of two, come prepared for some of the very narrow tables (no room for a wine bottle in addition to the main course plates). My only complaint is that the restaurant was VERY warm.

I took my fiancé here because I was raving abt how great their food was when I lived here but The food quality has significantly decreased. My salmon was dry, croquet was too spicy, my fiancée streak was just okay... Everything abt the restuarant was great except the food quality. Unfortunatly I will not return.

    We had the Braised Beef Cheeks and Cedar Smoked Bison Tenderloin. There was a ton of meat for the Beef Cheeks, which is very nice with the cherry tomatoes. I was not a big fan of the bison, but my wife enjoyed it as it had a nice charred exterior. Our favourite was the chocolate tart which is usually only served at lunch. Great attentive service.

    I have been to the Wildflower many times and have always enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. This time, the food was still fantastic, but the Eurovision-type technopop was wa-a-a-ay too loud. What used to be a romantic place for dinner left us shouting across the table to each other. The food is still great and the server struck the perfect balance between attentive and unobtrusive, but that music is a deal-breaker. Will not likely go back if they continue with that.
