Amazing food, great service, all around a wonderful experience and worth the price for a special occasion.
Absolutely fantastic food, and excellent table service. Some of the best food I've had to date in Edmonton. Decor was uninspired and outdated. Paintings were either crooked or off-center. Table was wobbly. Wall color reminiscent of an abandoned swimming pool. Open kitchen/glass wall concept was excellent.
A credit card was requested to book the reservation. It said that it would be charged if we did not show.
We had a gift card that we wanted to use for the occasion but our credit card was charged before we arrived. So we could only use the gift card for drinks. Next time the reservation should be more clear that is was a prepaid event.
Nice place and atmosphere. Food was OK not spectacular and not what I expected for the price I paid.
Pricey however good delicious and very good service. Have been here several times. The only concern would be very hard to get a reservation time , then for 2 hours during our dinner half the restaurant was empty. Overal would definitely return
Everything from the start was exceptional as always. My favourite place to go in Edmonton never disappointes every time we go. Had a tighter timeline with a function we needed to be at but they ensured their normal high expectations were met without missing out on quality, food presentation taste. The entire experience was 7 out of 5 stars as always. Thanks to everyone at Hardware - you outdid yourself again 🙏🏼‼️
This is an above average restaurant, with good service. Not the quality that would match expectations.
This is our second time to HG, we had the same server who is EXCELLENT! Very help, professional and knows just when to approach and when to hang back. We hope to have home again next time.
Our server was exceptional. The food was delicious. He recommended the perfect wine. It was an excellent experience and I'm excited to return.
Had a fantastic evening....amazing food, great service and a fantastic ambiance. Highly recommend
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Hardware Grill! The staff were all very friendly, professional and provided the perfect level of service. Even the gentleman who served our waters, bread, olive oil everything was delicious.
Great service and ambiance, very tasty and well presented food. The salmon was absolutely exquisite, the Alberta stake was well cooked and presented but the meat was on the hard side and a bit bland. Great experience overall, we will be back.
Awesome experience and meal. Clinton was the very best. Thank you !
Great service & amazing food. Recommend the Butchers Cut!
As always, we had an amazing night! Always superb service and the food was perfection.
A definite go to place for date night, family events or even just a nice drink and the best charcuterie board in Edmonton
Appreciate being able to switch out sides from other dishes and request adjustments. Curtis, our server is always amusing and provides excellent service
The experience at the Hardware Grill was amazing. The service was excellent and food was even better. This was my second time and their favorite Sea Bass was as good as the first time. Thank you!
Very expensive but good food and service. Large portions.
Another wonderful night at the Hardware Grill. The food was absolutely delicious: perfectly prepared and presented, and the servings were (unlike some other places) generous. Attentive and friendly service and perfect ambiance. Our server was thoughtful in accommodating one of our members who is gluten-free.
We sat at the table with a view of the kitchen and enjoyed the chance to watch the chefs.
Where there to celebrate my twins 23...did mention it on reservation and again on the phone , nothing was ever mentioned or done...
one of our guests found a tip of a pen in his food, we really didn't want to make a big deal of it, but after mentioning it to waiter, he never came back to apologize or even give us a dessert for free!? That is not why we mentioned the foreign object , but the waiter handled it poorly!
Next time i will certainly spend my $600.00 somewhere else!
We went for my birthday a couple of days ago and were not disappointed!
My fiance has a dairy allergy and Hardware Grill did a nice job of creating substitutions for their original menu items so that he could enjoy his meal as well.
To top that off, everything was to-die-for! All of our food was perfectly portioned, seasoned and cooked! The wine list was comprehensive without being intimidating for the casual wine-drinker. Our server was excellent - attentive enough to show up at our table the second we needed him but not constantly hovering so that your dining experience still felt intimate.
The only drawback to Hardware Grill is parking (and to be honest, it's only a minor inconvenience and should certainly not deter anyone from going to this restaurant). While there are plenty of open air parking lots close by, it still requires you to walk at least 5 minutes to get to the restaurant. This likely would not be an issue in the warmer months, but in -30 degree weather, it's not the greatest! But, like I said, this is only a minor inconvenience, and the restaurant overall is a homerun!
I don't know if I've ever eaten better or had better service. It was an absolutely incredible experience. Treated like royalty and ate like a king. New fav restaurant. ❤️
The service was excellent and the food was fantastic . We left very happy .
Exceptional service. Our Server was very knowledgeable of the menu items and our drinks were always filled up. Great food with unique dishes keep it interesting. I like that every entree has a unique plate of the sides that come with it. Seating for two is a little “cozy”, haha... A higher priced meal but worth every dollar!
As usual and our hat goes off to the care concern attention to detail HW has been executing since my first visit in 2000 to my last one on Jan 18 2019. Wow. U should b proud!!!
We dined here before going to a show at Rogers Place. The food was excellent (sea bass, elk, beef tenderloin and lobster pasta) and our waiter Shane was the best. He noted that we needed to be finished in time to get to the show and even though we had a relatively short timeline we didn't feel rushed at all.
Just meet up with some friends .
I thought the service was amazing! The food was super rich and flavourful. It's evident that the chefs put so much thought and research into how best to showcase ingredients. Very lovely experience, thank-you!
Great server, delicious gourmet dinners, accommodating to food intolerances.
Great place for a good meal. For one of the places considered "best in town," it's really not pretentious at all. Service is not intrusive at all, never felt pressure to order more drinks, and everything came in good time and was delicious. Good portion for the price. Not a single complaint. Best meal I've had in Edmonton.
We went there for our first time on Friday and loved everything about this restaurant, food was great!
Had an anniversary dinner at the Hardware Grill, and was very impressed with the high quality burger as well as the vegetarian sampler we shared. Would highly recommend and looking forward to going back.
Chose the restaurant because it’s consistently rated as one of the best in Edmonton.
The service was outstanding. The waiter was very personable and helpful.
Food was good. One friends ordered the salmon, he said it was a bit overdone. I ordered the lobster and shrimp linguine. The flavor of the sauce was a bit strong, maybe a bit too much brandy, and it was and extremely rich.
The elk and sea bass dishes were ok. Good, but not outstanding.
Perhaps the more memorable dishes were the appetizers, the scallops, crab cake and fried cauliflower were all very good.
Ambiance is great too.
Next time we will probably order a selection of appetizers instead of the dinner dishes.
Great experience overall. Staff were very professional and friendly.
The food was fantastic and our waiter was amazing. So friendly and you could tell it wasn't just an act to get a good tip.
Shane was an amazing server, food was amazing and the atmosphere was quiet and intimate. Could not ask for a better restaurant
Food - good. Portions - big. Calories - high. Service - great. Decor - perplexing. The restaurant is beautifully appointed, don't get me wrong. However, I was very confused by the art on the walls. I personally don't get the combination of high end decor, bronze pig? statues and large paintings that look like the were recovered from an 80s hospital waiting room or a library before that building was shut down due to funding issues lol. Seriously though this is a good place to eat - just try to ignore the creepy paintings.
Always great! If you are from out of town make sure you go for a great dinner.
We had a wonderful dinner with friends. Food was amazing. Our server, Clint, was very personable, knowledgable and attentive. We look forward to our next visit and will definitely tell everyone we know to go there!
Spent a special evening out at Hardware Grill. Food, Service and Ambiance were all excellent. We were 10 and none of us had ever been to Hardware Grill before, so we went by online reviews and were not disappointed. Next time in Edmonton I would love to return and try some of the other items on their menu. The Sea Bass was outstanding and the Carpaccio had me longing for more.
