Very quiet night in this restaurant, waiter Rey was awesome. He was attentive and a great sense of humour. We enjoyed the buffet! Salads were very fresh, a creamy pumpkin soup warranted seconds, scalloped potatoes yummy..........the fresh made berry crumble was delicious as were the small cakes. Worth a visit. Buffet price for seniors $25.95 very reasonable for the 4 courses.

I have been coming here for years for special occasions. Have always previously enjoyed it. The service and ambiance hasn’t changed but the quality of food has. Nothing was fresh. Almost all the food was hard or dry (including desert). The lunch station has now been converted to crock pots and it was the saddest desert selection I have ever seen. I dont know if there were recent budget cuts but I will never come back here to eat again.

We went for breakfast on Mother's Day but not for the brunch. The waitress didn't suggest the menu so we had the smorg. The waffles and pancakes were very dry from sitting out and it was pretty average food. Our waitress was exceptional!

We went here only by the Open Table recommendation on Valentine's Day. We were very impressed. The Sawridge is owned by First Nations and there are lovely paintings and artifacts worth walking around the hotel checking out. If you want a place that is quite different and interesting, then you will not be disappointed. Oh yeah, we liked the dinner very much too. You will not be disappointed by this little unknown gem. It is on Gateway Avenue but you probably drive by it and not notice it.

There are so many good places on Opentable and somehow I ended up here. The place was completely dead and the food was thrown together and cold in some places on the plate. I hate leaving bad reviews but somebody has to give a warning to others.

Very disappointed with our service. Had to ask for everything, starting with menus, right through to the credit card machine. Then the waiter threw out what we asked him to pack up to take home. Worst service we have had dining out in years.

A nice hotel dining room - nothing too fancy. A few menu items to choose from so should make it easy for most people to select a good meal. I had the Bison meatloaf - wow. Yummy. Only suggestion would be to have an extra 1-2 TBSPs of sauce to smoosh into the mashed potatoes. My husband had the short rib - a very generous chunk. Glad we didn't order an appetizer as the meals alone were plenty filling. No dessert either. Service attentive and not rushed. Two mains + 2 beers = $90 (incl tax and 20% tip)

Food took so long to come. Steak was over cooked and although they asked me if I want another one, I wasn't ready to wait for so long again for food.
Also the bill came without any kind of discount at least.

We had entrees for four. Flavours were somewhat flat, and too salty. Veggies underdone and meat overdone. Staff seemed quite distracted even though there were less then 12 guests in the restaurant. I was reluctant to leave a tip.

Found this place thanks to yelp and have not stopped talking about how good this meal was! The staff was super friendly and very gracious. I celebrated my birthday with my family. Our first time to a new restaurant and they really made us happy. Food was served within 20 min. Would I come back? Absolutely.

I read about this hidden gem in an Edmonton restaurant review. Creations ranked #1 for a reason. The food is exquisite, service outstanding, superb wine choices, and was quiet enough for good conversation in a very pleasant atmosphere. Try it--you won't be disappointed!

Place looked amazing, that quickly vanished with the poor wait staff (not rude just bad). Took over an hour to get our food, lobster risotto should be called cheesy rice with grass on top. Roasted Hun, how you burn something to a crisp and it still be soggy is impressive.

After desert I asked for the bill waiting 20 mins asked again before I finally recieved it.

For the same price go to the keg or any other fine eating establishments.

I really liked the ambience and layout of the restaurant, it was nice and quiet, almost private. Food quality and setting was high. However I specifically came for the seafood, which to some degree was lacking. The price point for king crab was right on the crab tasted slightly freezer burned. I understand at the price it has to be previously frozen, my thoughts are it should be in a steam table,warmed to avoid this, garlic butter should be on hand and not a request item. Mussels were very flavourful.. but again cold. Scallops were not present but advertised. I would return if changes were made but otherwise I wouldn't go out of my way.
