service was good, quick, but waited 15 minutes for 8 pm reservation for dinner. Server gave wrong desert and took it away from under my nose just before i almost touched it. Turkey dinner plate spectacular. Made an overcharge on our bill. A special whiskey dessert had a dried out muffin cake. Always hate the pay parking there.

We have been dining at Laronde for more than 20 years.

We dined over the last weekend, Oct 7.

The Service was the worst in any restaurant in Edmonton, to 2hrs. 20min. to dine, when used to be around 1hr. We were extremely tired and anxious. This was not a multi person occasion, intending on a long entertainment evening, as many people do, it was just going out dining.

Over 20 min. to be served coffee, another hour for dinner, and 30 minutes wait for dessert and 30 min. wait to pay? In between the services, we had to flag down our server Kevin many times, very very little attention was paid to our table. The poor guy was literally sweating, I commented to him, it made us uncomfortable.

The restaurant was not even 50% capacity.

I concluded it must be the minimum wage increase, lowered food qty. and service quality. But after I thought about it, this is supposed to be very high end dining with dress code????

It will be a very long time for me and my family to return.

Thanksgiving dinner was 3 courses for $68.
1st course soup was sent back - it was luke warm
Main course very little vegetables and gravy.
Dessert Pears - seemed like from a can and not fresh.
Poor value for cost
Others at the table ordered off regular menu and loved their meals. We were there a month before and loved off the menu too!
Will go back again for menu items only.
Such great ambiance and views!

Nothing beats the rotating view at La Ronde for a special meal. Service for Thanksgiving Sunday brunch was stellar (thanks, Spencer!), and the food was delicious though dishes were not gluten-friendly (or they weren't labeled as such if they were). We were seated beside VERY loud guests/children so that dampened the experience a bit. Still, 4 stars for not having to cook and clean up afterward!

Waiter was loud, brought us the wrong meals because he didn’t place the order, then didn’t the meals as ordered. One meal returned cold and although he said they “the management” would take care of the meals, they didn’t. Unsatisfactory.

The food and place is very outstanding.
However the front desk is not very friendly.
We came early and was not happy on how they advise that we have to wait for another 10-15 minutes before we get a table.

The view is unmatched. Great place to take out of town guests. The meat was perfect. Vegetables hot, but almost raw. Crab cakes were burnt and very dry (when queried the waiter said they were 'golden brown'.) Desserts were delicious.

For us, La Ronde is a true special event restaurant; anniversaries, birthdays, special dates. The view from the revolving restaurant is spectacular, particularly close to sunset. Service is never rushed, truly allowing one to enjoy the ambiance and company of your dinner companion. Food was very good, service was always present, but one never felt rushed or concerned about being in the way of the next seating.
