So grateful to have such an incredible restaurant right here in Saskatoon! There is obvious passion and commitment to quality in every bite you take. The head chef is incredible! The staff and customer service is some of the best in the city. Do yourself and tastebuds a favour and go eat here!!!!!

We got the croquette starter and it was very very bland. We didn’t want any mains. The service was excellent and the drinks were great!

Nice metro vibe to the place and the menu is tasty but too much reliance on tomatoes in sauces. The steak is seasoned and cooked well but it had gristly parts. The salad was nasty unless you prefer non romaine/iceberg lettuce and one bite and left the rest uneaten. Nice wine selection. Great servers. Charcuterie board was a good pick.

we usually love it here. this night was just not good. I returned my steak as it was not cooked as I had requested. chef sent it back to me to say only part of it wasn't rare, (but of course i was expected to pay for the whole steak). They also said rather patronizingly that they could make it blue if i preferred. I was able to eat half of the steak but left the rest on the plate. The greens that came with the steak were gorgeous to look at and perfectly dressed.
We ordered a side of beans with drippings and charcutery crumble, the beans were over cooked and the rest tasted very stale, like butter just on this side of rancid, or something too long on the grill. I was very disappointed as they used to do Brussel Sprouts in a similar manner and they were delicious, not like this at all, it really tasted off.

They offered to comp us a dessert, but when we declined and ordered another glass of wine instead there was no offer to comp that. Our server was kind and engaging, but the overall experience was bad. We had cocktails, mains and sides, plus a bottle of wine, so not scrimping in any way.

we likely won't go back for a while at least. it is too bad as we are still relatively new to Saskatoon having moved here from Montréal and we had been enjoying Ayden for burgers especially.

Unwarranted upscale pricing - portions way too small
This was disappointing as the reviews indicated a much better experience. Made a reservation - we were initially offered a table next to the bar, but I looked around and found a much better one in the dining area - why the initial offer at an unpopular, noisy, busy area (with staff), especially as I indicated in the on-line reservation it was for an anniversary? Music a bit loud thus other diners had raised voices in order to talk, but the lack of sound absorption seems to be the style these days so it was tolerated. Menu had shares, small plates, large plates and sides. Large plates were described as 'man' sized appetite portions. Well the person who thought of this was dreaming. Ordered the pork belly large plate - the pork was ~ 6" long by 2" wide, came with a 1/4 slice of pear, and not much else - portion was way too small and over priced. Luckily I ordered fries as a side (no other form of potato or rice was on the 'large' plate). Would hate to see the small plates. Staff was great, food, what there was of it was tasty, wine way over priced 55$ bottle that sells for 20$, atmosphere was okay but noisy - can only wonder what it would be like if the Covid distancing allowed for more diners… $$$$ was not warranted!

We enjoy the clever intermingling of different flavours. Fun and different. For us, this an upscale place, and perfect for special occasions. Covid-wise, we felt comfortable and isolated.

We have been to Aiden’s on a number of occasions but it seemed that they were on their game both with service and quality. We are definitely going back soon. Keep up the good work. We will be returning to try the Beef Wellington.

Chefs are fantastic, you can tell they care about your experience. Service is incredible, and the food speaks for itself. Best burger in town, and if custard desserts are your thing you won't be let down!

One of the best restaurants in the province if not western Canada. Good food with amazing taste, presentation and creativity. First be star food without French Chef level pretensiousness. You don’t go away hungry. Friendly and helpful staff. A little noisy at times, but we could still hear each other speak.
