Service was prompt and the food was very good. We started with the Hummus and it was good and very plentiful for 2 people!
Very good food. Fast service
Love this place
We love going to Accent and we have eaten dinner there many times. However, we were unaware of the Monday night games night. No big deal, we thought, we're here to celebrate a friend of ours visiting from Europe, so we won’t partake and just enjoy our meals. Or so we thought. Apparently, participation was optional. In real life, not so much. We were made fun of for trying to enjoy a nice dinner without having to participate in your game night. Not by our waitress, but by the two guys that hosted it. This dimmed our mood quickly. In addition to being made fun of in front of an entire restaurant full of people, our waitress seemed very disinterested in providing good and thoughtful service to us. Multiple times, we had to ask for water refills, sometimes she’d miss glasses to fill up, and she brought out the wrong appetizer. This is a stark contrast to the excellent service we have enjoyed at Accent any time we ate there previously.
For the future, it may help if there were an announcement that the restaurant is packed with players for the game night on Monday night - so that people looking to enjoy a family dinner like us, stay away that night.
We used to love this restaurant, but we are not entirely sure we will be returning.
Really enjoyed this. It was my 2nd time came with my son, daughter in law & her mom to celebrate their birthdays. We had a wonderful meal. Will be bac for more.
I love Accent - it continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in Edmonton, with consistent, delicious food, wonderful atmosphere and super friendly service. An absolute hidden gem!
The atmosphere was great. The music was subtle which allowed for great conversatuon. The feel is that of a small European pub. A great time all around.
Everything was fabulous the food, the service and the atmosphere was wonderful.
We took a couple there , it was their 1 st time they had been there. They fell in love with it as well. We had a wonderful time
Beef tartare amazing as always but maybe a little too warm, remember it being much more cooler. Our server was nice but one server for a full house means extremely slow service. I feel bad for the amount of stress this may cause staff. Waited about 30 mins after we finished eating before I had to grab her to get our bill. Would always return as this place is a great gem of Whyte Ave but please put another person on the floor!
Great food great service...simple menu all 4 dishes we tried were awesome
Food & service very good as always.
Excellent house wine choices. Sauces for the entree can be improved to reach next level. Overall, a regular spot for us to visit from time to time.
Food and service was Excellent!
I found the food to be absolutely above average. I ordered the tenderloin sandwich with fries and greens. We found everything, even the fries, to be very very good.
Excellent selection of small brewery beers, and lots of local to choose from.
We enjoyed the relative silence of the space on a Friday night, and the service was good without being overwhelming. I would recommend it.
Food was very good. The goulash was not as tender as usual. The pork schnitzel was excellent. Service was fine. There was one loud table that detracted from the usually quiet atmosphere.
I have been to Accent Lounge several times and have not been disappointed. You do have to be aware that as a small restaurant they do order limited food and on occasion will run out of ingredients. The highlight of this restaurant for me is the beef tartare. Best I have ever had and consistent each time. I would recommend thus restaurant without hesitation.
Good schnitzel and drinks. Friendly service. Nice cozy atmosphere.
My boyfriend took us here on a date before a show. The food was delicious and came to the table piping hot. Tried a fantastic local beer. It's a small place so reserve early if you want more of a quiet atmosphere. I wanted to try the steak but they were out that day. I had the salmon and it was a more than fair substitute. My date had the chicken shitzel , also delicious.
Excellent Tartare as usual we go there just to have some. Great selections on the menu, not extensive, but a very nice selection, something for everyone. Half price wine Thursdays is our favorite night to go.
We had a wonderful time here again.
Service, food and ambience was wonderful
The food was good but not great. We would recommend the salads and the delicious goulash, but the schnitzel -- listed on the menu as a signature dish -- was just okay. Service was excellent, and the restaurant is well located for dinner before a show at the Walterdale, so we would definitely give it another try.
Was super busy and had a great atmosphere. Great value for the cost and quality- we would go back again!
Always great food. Although desserts tend to be not quite on par with main course. AKA I tend not to order them lol. (Favourites Bruschetta and Goulash)
I have been to Accent a number of times and it never disappoints. Definitely an Edmonton hidden gem. One of the best restaurants in Edmonton
A cute place. We used a deal off yelp nd we’re quite excited to try this restaurant after reading all the reviews! We had the spicy shrimp to start. It was extremely bland. There was no flavour except that of the shrimp. I wanted to ask for salt. To add anything to them. I had the Lobster wrapped bacon. Again the cream sauce on top was bland. I believe it was a Hollandaise. It tasted like air. I should add that everything was cooked perfectly!! It was just lacking in flavour. My BF has the salmon. It was good but the noodles it came with with just tossed in olive oil. So bland again. A nice rose sauce would have added to it perfect. I will definitely try this again and hope the cooks just had a busy night. It was also pretty tight quarters with. Cozy feel. Staff was attentive and great. I asked what kind of coffee they served and the server told me nothing exciting. They got it from Costco. That was too bad they didn’thave a great cup of coffee to come me the night.
Both the food and the service were very good. The tartar was the best I have had in Edmonton. We will be going back .
This was a pleasant surprise and well worth a visit. Restaurant is tucked away - almost out of sight. The interior is warm and inviting and the food superb!
Great European comfort food on menu.
Great beer selection, , atmosphere is nice for conversation with friends or date.
love their specials - best tartar in town its good that they finally fixed an upstairs restroom
First time at this restaurant so we didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by the food, service and ambiance. Large portions of tasty food. A complete meal with lots of veggies and sides which were cooked perfectly. The waitress was very friendly and we really enjoyed our experience. As a good cook myself, this is high praise coming from me as I am usually disappointed in restaurant food. Left one star on the 'overall' because there is always room for improvement with any business. Well done accent lounge. We'll be back.
Very cozy good food. Used Groupon and will go again.
After making a reservation through Open Table, which was accepted, my guest and I arrived approximately 15 minutes early.
A male server addressed us and put us at a table that was directly where draft from the door caused a cold wind. I saw other patrons with their coats on, I decided to do the same. I asked the male server to be moved to a table that was away from the door, where he was cleaning a table for two. He stated that there was a large group coming in which the table was included.
Shortly afterward, a female server seated two people at the table I requested.
I watched how the male server had put persons from one table to another.
There was another table open, not related to the large group, open. This was not offered.
The food was okay to eat. The curry was tasteful. The mushroom mashed potato was bland.
The dessert was tasteful.
The female server did speak with the owner. The owner gave us the dessert for free.
I was treated by the male server like my patronage was not wanted and the service I received, for the most part, showed that we were not wanted for the most part.
This is one of our Favorites! Steak tartar is Sublime! Their specials are creative and great value. We will continue to come here as often as we can.
We'd been to Accent before and liked it, but this time was not so good. The main course steak was very small. The pork schnitzel had a very long hair baked into the coating. Yech! The service was okay, but not great....a bit slow even though the place wasn't very busy. Normally, the food is better than average, but considering the price (high), the latest visit was a disappointment.
This is the perfect place if you want a quiet, cosy night of conversation over good wine and food. Do not miss the beef tartare, it is one of the bests in the city!
A friend and I went to Accent restaurant because I had a groupon. The resturant was inviting, the service was good and the food was exceptional. Even though we had a groupon the service or food was not compromised. I definately recommend this restaurant.
This is our third visit to Accent Cafe and we have never been disappointed!
Friendly wait staff, great food, and 1/2 price bottles of wine!
Fried chest sandwich is great
Great food and location ! Nice night out - glad we found it. Will go back again.
Food ok but took ages for food to come. I don't know if the plan is for you to buy more drinks or if customers with groupon are treated differently. We had started after a long wait, then another long wait for main.
