    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 have been here a few times for special occasions 2 years ago and I was very impressed with everything especially the food but my latest experience wasn't as memorable. 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.

    The food was quite good, but the rap music playing certainly spoiled the experience for us. There were only 3 other tables occupied, so the place may have been too quiet for the staff? The waiter was great, but I probably won't go back.

    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.

    We really enjoyed a romantic evening out at this restaurant. The service was quick and fantastic. We really enjoyed all of our meal. The only suggestion we really had was for the main entree's the portions could have been a little bit bigger. But the quality and taste of the food was phenomonal. We will definately come back on another occasion.

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.

    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.

    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.
