Hardware Grill Ratings and Reviews
The food and service was great! The attention was phenomenal! The only thing I didn’t like was when I booked I requested a birthday dessert and called to confirm before and they said all was good! But when I arrived they didn’t have it and I had to sneak and ask a server to do that for me. They did it and was good anyway! Too bad it wasn’t surprising as I requested. But overall great place
Surprised my wife for her birthday. Everything was fantastic from the welcoming as we walked through the door to helping decide on a wine to dinner choices. Extremely friendly staff and the atmosphere was great.
The food was unreal. We would definitely go back.
While the food was quite good, it wasn’t to the level expected. The service was good, but for the $’s, I expected more attention, more servers and a higher level of attention to our needs. I will continue my search for a high quality dining experience in Edmonton.
We found the décor to be a bit questionable. The wine menu's cover page certainly does NOT fit with the high end restaurant theme. If you're spending $50 on an entrée, the wine menu should at least look high end vs. what you would find at a Chinese Buffet. The bathrooms were also not very appealing. The womens had plywood dividers. Again, not a top notch accessory you'd expect to find in a restaurant that charges these prices.
That said, the food was great. Everything was presented very well and timed perfectly so that we were never waiting extremely long. Expect a dinner seating to last about 1.5 - 2 hours. Our server was great and not pushy or overbearing. I do appreciate the cocktail list despite the book in which it came from. We had a great meal and will be back. It's in the pricey range, so not for everyone and not for regular occurrences unless you're pretty well off. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone. The menu is small, but it should be that way so that the Chef's can focus on nailing a few dishes rather than being OK at a million dishes.
Came here with my partner for our anniversary. We had an amazing waitress that took care of us while visiting the restaurant, the food we ordered was absolutely outstanding! It is a bit pricey, however, we do not have a problem paying for exceptional food and service. The ambiance was quiet yet had a vibrant feel to it, can dress casual or formal. We will definately be back to dine at this restaurant.
We celebrated our anniversary on Friday night. Dean and the rest of the staff treated us like royalty. The food was excellent and inventive. The KFC cauliflower, elk tenderloin and gingerbread cake were standouts for the evening. We will definitely come again and have already recommended it to friends.
The evening at the Hardware Grill was worth every cent!! The main reason we decided to give this location a try because of the chocolate lava cake (Warm Soft-Centre Molten Chocolate Cake) which is nut-free due to allergies. Anyway, when we came in, two hostesses were very kind and quick to find our reservations and led us to the table. We met our waiter who was very accommodating due to our deafness... he was more than willing to speak a dictation to one of my friends' iPhone and we were able to pick up what the specials were and what he could do for us. His service as well as other wait staff were wonderful! They were attentive to our needs even when we did not ask for it. Before the aforementioned dessert, I enjoyed the handrolled butternut squash mascarpone tortellini as an appetizer and then the main entree: crab-crusted cedar planked salmon with potato gnocchi, aspargus, and mushrooms with sauce americaine. I enjoyed a pinot grigio wine to go with the 3-course meal. This is not the usual place I would go to on a regular basis but this is special for me and my friends to enjoy before the year closes out this month. What a Merry Christmas gathering with my friends enjoying great food!! Hope Hardware Grill sticks around for a long time!!! A gem in Edmonton!
We have visited the restaurant a few times over the past 15 years and have always been satisfied with the results. This is rare as many restaurants have trouble maintaining there the quality and they know how to charge they dont loose that but the quality often goes in the tanks. Congrats for a sustained quality product
The food was amazing. Scallops were probably the best I’ve had and the Elk steak/short ribs were awesome and very tender. If I have anything negative to say, it is that our waiter was a little slow checking in although she was very nice to deal with and very knowledgeable. I think the issue was not enough wait staff perhaps.
My wife and I dined out at the Grill on Thursday and were quite impressed with the service by Shane and our food was amazing. Thank you for a great experience and we will be sure to return and tell friends/family of the quality and service.

Outstanding as always. I met a friend who is a wine/food fanatic and when he comes to town he always insists that we eat at the Hardware Grill. The Sea Bass is as good as it gets and the service impeccable. A fantastic place to eat on any occasion (especially if it is followed by an Oilers game!)
I hadn't been to the Hardware Grill for a few year, and my husband and I went there for my birthday. The food was excellent and the service was good. The prices were a little expensive, but the quality of the food made it worth it. A very good dining experience.
