Food and service were great. Only downside is we went right after it opened and the floor had just been washed with bleach. Great that it’s clean but the fumes were choking for the first half hour we were there.

Food is absolutely fantastic!! Waiter was miserable and obviously has no idea what customer service is about. We were interrupting his day by being there. There are lots of restaurants in Edmonton where the food is good and so is the service. I will take my business there next time.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
