This was our second visit. I returned because I wanted a better table than the first time, and we got a super table from which to admire the decor. This restaurant is SO beautiful. And as a celiac, I really enjoyed the many GF options, and how knowledgeable the waitress was about the ingredients.

Had the best Brunch! Our server was amazing, my Dad made a mistake on the debit machine and forgot to tip her (thankfully he realized) but she was so sweet and polite about it! Needless to say, my old man was really sorry about the mistake, and was happy to rectify it in the end, because the service, food and drinks were incredible. Those scones! We just don't know how you do them! They're amazing!

We chose to eat at Ampersand 27 for our 1st anniversary. It was one of the best culinary experiences we’ve personally had. The staff were amazingly funny and knowledgeable about food, wine, beer and local attractions. The dessert was my personal favourite, we had the white chocolate cheesecake and warm butter rum raisin cake. Hands down the best dessert I’ve ever had at a restaurant. If you choose this delightful eaterie you will not be disappointed, we most definitely were not.

Good food and great craft cocktails. Nice decor, place was a bit quiet though, picked up later. Server was great, well informed on the charcuterie as well as other menu options. They say all plates are family style for sharing, I found they weren’t large enough for sharing and should just be considered good size entree portions. Would go back again

Wonderful ambience. All the vegetarian options were excellent. The pork we chose was quite tough. That was the only disappointment. We did call it to the manager’s attention.

I wouldn't return to this place. Very expensive for what you get. Ordered a Margherita pizza and when I picked a piece up, all ingredients slid off to form a puddle in the middle. We also didn't enjoy the flavours of the duck prosciutto and rabbit rillette we chose for charcuterie and the brie cheese was mostly rind - expected more for the price. All in all, a miserable experience. Oh, the gnocchi was OK but again, completely overpriced.

Went out with a friend before a show. We had an hour and a half before it began and thought it would be enough time for a charcuterie board, a couple mains and maybe a dessert. The service was painfully slow; it took 20 minutes to get our drinks and 45 minutes to get our food and there were 4 other tables. Not busy by any stretch of the imagination.
The server only checked on us once in 90 minutes. I don't know why service took so long as they don't appear to do any table maintenance.
The food, however, was good but for the price there are places with food as good and with better service.
Beautiful interior and it's a pity the food and service doesn't match up.

Tl;Dr it was just okay

I'm not really a vegetarian but I eat meat light. Hubby is a meat eater. There was enough for both of us to choose from - even plates we could share.
Great charcuterie plate.
Roasted cauliflower with lentils -which stole the show.
Braised lamb shank - out of my comfort zone but even I recognise it had good flavour.
I wish restaurants would stop serving quinoa. There are so many grain option with better taste and texture.

We made a reservation and our table was in the lounge in front of the door. It was drafty and cold. We ordered he tenderloin and the steak was delicious but the potatoes were puréed to the point of soup. We all agreed that we like our potatoes with some texture. Flavours were good though. Wouldn’t rush back but it’s ok.

I've been to ampersand before and there is a reason I keep coming back, the food and the amazing cocktails. Two words, popcorn puree, I know it sounds unconventional but it is amazing. You will be picking your plate. Their cocktail menu is new and has an amazing selection with variety and quality ingredients. The staff were very attentive and authentic which just added to our experience. I was there with my friend, we were celebrating her birthday and me recent engagement and the staff made us both feel like celebrities and very special as we celebrated together.

I really loved our server. I can't remember her name unfortunately but I've had her serve me a couple times. She's very knowledgeable about the menu and really appreciate her opinion on what I choose to order. I do wish there were some less expensive wine options on the menu, my date did choose the restaurant however I felt bad picking out the wine as they were all very pricey.

The service was quick, efficient and attentive without being overbearing. The oysters were outstanding though we had to ask for more lemons and there could have been more sauces... The visual space was inviting including the sculptural wall climbers and the lighting. Music was way too loud...
The halibut and beet salad was luscious...

Went to Ampersand 27 to celebrate a birthday. Nice ambience, tasty food! Pork Belly Buns, Duck Fat potato salad very delicious! A nice variety on the menu to suit everyone.
Our server could've stepped it up a notch or two but we still had a good experience and would recommend it.

There were 5 of us and we were having a family style meal. We ordered a steak as part of that and they overlooked it. When I told the server she tried to say it was because we sent it back to get cut into more slices as there were 5 of us and they cut it into 3. That said I call BS as there’s no way to goes from medium rare to medium well! She should have fired another steak or taken it off the bill. She had no interest is doing anything for us! As a rule of thumb I tend to stay away from restaurants not willing to accept responsibility for their mistakes. There are may great restaurants in Edmonton...this isn’t one of them. The total bill that night was over $700...

The food was fabulous and the gin and tonic list (over 40 options) was unreal!!

The charcuterie options for starters really made the experience unique and I already regret not trying more options for cheeses!!

We were there on a Monday and it was a quiet, intimate setting on a blustery day. The servers were very attentive and yet still gave us our space to keep the romance feel to things.

I will be back!
