Fantastic dinner for sure. The service was top notch, the food excellent. Highly recommend Hardware Grill as a very fine place to eat.
This was our first visit to Hardware and we decided to check it out during Downtown Dining Week. Our server was attentive until he served our first course. After that, we hardly saw him. Our food was delivered by others and not in a timely fashion. We waited for 1/2 hour for our bill after we had finished. Everything else was excellent - especially the food.
We attended Hardware Grill to experience the Downtown Dining week and were very satisfied.
The food was absolutely amazing! Looking forward to returning and trying some of the chefs other creations :)
Amazing food, great service. An overall wonderful experience. We're glad we went.
This was our first visit to the Hardware Grill. We plan to return. The food was delicious. The mashed potatoes with the short ribs are worth walking from the south side to eat!! That’s how much I enjoyed them! I was pleasantly surprised that the menu prices were very reasonable. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Delicious food lovely ambiance great service- will return
We visited the hardware grill as part of Edmonton’s down town dining week and we were not disappointed.
From the moment you walk through the door the staff could not be more attentive. Our server was friendly, professional, made you feel at home .
Now the food ! Amazing, if I could fault anything it was the portions were huge. I had the chicken schnitzel and my husband the short ribs. Both delicious, save room for the gingerbread cake! Will definitely return.
A wonderful 30th anniversary dinner at Hardware Grill! Curtis was an excellent server and the food was creative and sooo good!
Excellent service! Great presentation and exquisite taste. The bread basket was terrific. Waiter was very apologetic for the parking issue due to Crashed Ice event. All was wonderful and we will return.
Dining at the Hardware Grill always ferls special. This time we were there to paryake in Downtown Dining Week. The menu selections were delightful & everything was as delicious & well-done as their regular menu.
Shane was a treat of a waiter & we will be asking to have him again. Hands down the besr waiter I've had at Hardware Grill. Overall, we were treated with the same care as if it weren't DTDW.
We had a mistake in our booking, but the restaurant fit us in.
We had a lovely table and the service was excellent.
Caesar salads were excellent. My salmon was lovely. My wife's Schnitzel was bland.
The desserts were fantastic.
Avoid the Schnitzel and you will have a great meal.
Great service and great tasting food. Would come back again for sure!
My husband and I enjoyed the food. From the appetizers to the desserts, everything was made well, and tasted great! I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Definitely part of the city's gems. Portions sizes were good, service was great, and all-round good time spent at Hardware Grill.
Food was great but the appies are overpriced for the amount you get. Main meals were excellent !!!
The online booking process is a failure at best! Restarant was about 50% full, the food was great, wine selection was medocure, service was poor, price was high.
This is a lovely restaurant to go to as far as ambiance is concerned.
The food is overpriced and very heavy. The menu is tired and not creative.
Our service was not good. We pored our own wine and dishes were collected before everyone finished eating.
For this price there are better choices in Edmonton.
Delicious food in lovely ambiance and at a good price. A very enjoyable experience.
Definitely would dine at Hardware Grill again should we find ourselves in Edmonton. The duck and elk entrees were a feast on a plate, extremely well composed, generous portions with interesting and well balanced flavors.
Ambience was comfortable and relaxed, service was professional, and overall was a very pleasant experience.
Food was very good and the server was excellent. The group i was with enjoyed their meals which includes my vegetarian/very picky spouse. If she enjoyed it then that's a win for this guy. Only concern was it could get rather loud in the space we were sitting. But that is the way things go with a popular place i suppose.
Date night with my husband and once again, we were not let down. Fabulous food, lovely atmosphere - delightful as always.
The curved tables for two were perfect for an intimate date night.
My spouse and I were visiting from out of town and hardware was strongly recommended by colleagues and friends as a must eat place to visit! It definitely exceeded expectations. We will be back!
Wonderful dinner! Great for a date night or a special occasion!
We must go to Hardware every time we are in Edmonton. Amazing food.
One of the best menus top to bottom from starters to desserts adventurist taste within the finely prepared food !!
It was our first visit. It was recommended by my sister in law although we had already heard of the restaurant several other times. Our waiter Curtis was attentive but the bus boy was even more so. I usually make a point of finding out names but my wife and I had such a great experience with everything that happened I missed some things.
The atmosphere was very pleasing. Service was exceptional. My wife had the elk & short rib meal (which I also sampled) and the presentation was good but taste was great. I had the tenderloin. Both meals were fantastic. My wife asked our waiter for a wine & was very pleased with his recommendation.
She also had dessert which we both enjoyed.
We waited to go because we wanted it to be a special occasion. DON'T go now and enjoy yourselves life is to short.
This is definitely a very good "high end" choice. Special occasions, important business dinner--you will not be disappointed. I have the absolute pleasure of dining at the Hardware Grill two or three times a year, and I/we (family) have never been disappointed. Five star, for sure.
Food was amazing! The sea bass is a must have! It was a perfect venue for our special occasion.
Service was terrific and the sea bass was excellent; a real pleasant surprise. My wife also enjoyed the salmon. Nice wine list too.
Best food I've ever had. Our waiter was unbelievable. Only drawback to this place is that it's quite expensive. So for regular folks it's more of a special occasion type place.
This was my first visit to the Hardware Grill, and I was not disappointed. Delicious food and a lovely atmosphere. I will be back again!
Amazing food and gracious service. We ordered the ricotta appetizer, the vegetarian tasting and the sea bass. Enjoyed every morsel.
I've only been here once before and had a good experience, so I was super excited to take my boyfriend here for our anniversary. I was disappointed though because our server was nowhere to be found the entire time, we and rushed to make us pay when we were finished. I hate leaving bad reviews but I was looking forward to this night out all month and it was just okay.
The food was fantastic! I had the sea bass....the price was worth every delicious bite!
Only issue was that our appetizer came at the same time as the entree. Putting the appetizer (truffle mac&cheese) on our beautiful entree plate was disappointing and put a damper on the experience.
Other than the entree issue....everything was perfect! The server was otherwise very attentive and personable.
For a first experience this was ok. Server was outstanding, delivery of food was slow for the time at which we were there. The atmosphere was fantastic and relaxed. I don’t mind paying a fair price for a great meal but this was really pricey for the overall experience. Would I recommend? Yes but with the comment that it’s pricey.
The Hardware Grill is our favorite fine dining restaurants boasting an exceptional room, atmosphere and menu with a number of great traditional dishes, seafood, fish and appetizers.
As always, the food was very good and very thankful to have experienced the smoked salmon and Sea Bass first hand.
Thanks again for a grand anniversary dinner, and the complimentary chocolates to finish were very much appreciated.
After a number of experiences, we've also recognized we have a couple of favorites tables and/or areas within the restaurant so we'll know to include specific requests within future reservations.
Looking forward to returning more often in the coming year, and in addition to celebratory dinners, we're excited to stop in more regularly for appetizers and wine pairings!
The food was good, expensive but good for a special occasion. Our food however was not super hot which was a little bit of a let down but overall a good experience.
Even better than I thought reading reviews absolutely amazing food and service id come back just for the salted caramel creme brulee! Our waiter was amazing and very informative when it came to restrictions on the food I can eat and offered delicious options and very accomidating.
