Attentive service and wonderful food. They made our special occasion dinner a wonderful night out. Nicholas even brought out a cute sparkler and yummy chocolate to acknowledge our special evening.
This restaurant is a cut above all other restaurants in our area. Great food!
Ejoyed brunch with friends today! Great selection.
Consistent service and quality makes this a go to for me.
Amazing place to eat!! Our server was very kind and great to chat with, she knew the menu and drink suggestions well! Thank you!
Server seems tired or disinterested in serving us.. She didnt know any details of the daily special and serving us was a big effort. The food was not to the quality that 19's has served in past visits.
First time at 19, very nice restaurant... some of the best service we’ve had in a long time and the food was excellent.
We enjoyed a lovely anniversary dinner. Good food, good wine, lovely service.
We celebrated our anniversary here on Sunday night. Food and service were both amazing! They had set aside a private little table for us since they knew we were celebrating. Lovely experience and will be back for sure!
Birthday celebration dinner. Service and food was very good. Will definitely be back.
Wonderful dining experience as usual. Outstanding food and service! One of our favourite restaurants
Nick was our server and was pleasure to work with. The food was excellent, my partner demands quality and flavour and he gave the risotto a 10+. I had the halibut and the curried spaghetti was very delicious. We are excited to have found a local restaurant that was so enjoyable. We will be back often.
Great food, service and atmosphere. We’ll definitely be back.
the food was excellent (portion on the small side though), the atmosphere was great-the kitchen was visible behind glass!-so no kitchen clatter! (why do other restaurants think we want to hear that), and the music not loud-such that I didn't have to shout across the table, or strain to hear. Highly recommend this restaurant
Excellent food , did not feel rushed and our server Megan was delightful.
Unbelieveable. Simple as that and I can’t wait to go back.
Great time, thanks so much!! Food was fabulous.
We started with bacon smoked scallops which we added an extra serving to make it shareable. Tasty but extremely small portion even with the added serving.
The halibut was excellent and cooked perfectly, same for the chicken. A little pricey but not bad value
The only downside was our waitress. She never introduced herself and while efficient, the best word to describe her would be “sour”.
Had a lovely evening ; the food was very good; the service attentive without being overbearing....
We have been to Nineteen at least 6-8 times and have always enjoyed the experience; however on the last occasion the short ribs were not good at all--dry, overcooked, unpalatable. Noise level was high even though it was not completely full. Wine list is very good; sad to see the Tuesday wine specials disappear.
The crab cakes are always great; also the lobster ravioli though it is a fairly small dish. Desserts are always interesting and very good.
Was a wonderful time we had a Mom & Daughter catch up time, everything was great.... wait for it...“except”.... we had a reservation yet we got seated at the one most high traffic point table right next to a side table full of people facing us so that was rather uncomfortable to hear every word they said PARTICULARILY WHEN THE RESTAURANT WAS NEARLY EMPTY THE ENTIRE TIME! Any other table would have been better ! Disappointed especially when we had a reservation !
Food was exceptional!!
First time and it was wonderful. Food was great and the service was awesome.
Went out as a couple to celebrate my husband's birthday. This was our second time at XIX and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and our server was excellent. We were happy to be able to book through Open Table and indicate we would be there earlier than the reservation time available and have the table ready when we arrived. (15 min. early). I love the detail that goes into the dishes here. We had an appetizer, two mains, and a dessert with no complaints on anything. Very happy with our experience and we will be back for sure.
Great food, great service! Amazing every time I go!
Outstanding staff, food, decore. We love taking 'out-of-towners' to nineteen.
The appetizers were better than the entree. The portions were generous. The staff was excellent.
A extremely, most pleasant night out for my mother’s birthday!!! Right from the parking, to the host, the surroundings, amazing food selections and the best was our server Nicholas a five star rating for this individual.
Not only was the service fantastic and knowing the food so well to bring so personal and professional with an added sense of humour!!!!!
Both of us would definitely recommend this restaurant and be back over and over. By far now I must say my favourite.
Lovely restaurant, awesome food, great place in St. Albert.
We all had a good visit, our first time excellent experience in X1X restaurant.
All is good.
Dinner was great. All three of us loved our meals - I had beautifully cooked mussels in a gorgonzola sauce with a side salad. Delicious.
First time diner. We chose this restaurant to celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary in part because we had a $75.00 gift certificate and also because we had heard and read glowing reviews of the service and food. We were not disappointed.
Arriving at the restaurant we were greeted with a “Happy Anniversary” wish and we were immediately seated in possibly the best seat in the dining room – a cozy booth at the front of the restaurant which provided terrific ambience for the occasion.
Our waiter Nicholas was very attentive but yet unobtrusive through our dining experience. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and we both took his recommendation to savour the special of the day, Halibut. While somewhat bias as fish lovers we could not have been more pleased – the fish was fresh, delicious and cooked to our requested doneness – medium. The accompanying pasta where the halibut so proudly rested was delicious as well and fully complimented the dish and thankfully was not overly salty which is the case so often in restaurant fare.
We shared the Dungeness Crab Cake appetizer with an extra cake added to allow us two each. They were chock full of crab and delicious.
We didn’t save any room for desert due to the appetizer/meal size (other reviews highlight small plates – this certainly was not our experience). However, Nicholas brought out a small plate of raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and a “Happy Anniversary” chocolate wafer topped off with a sparkler, a glowing finish to our meal.
They offer an extensive list of wines albeit some are a little pricing IMO. However, there was a good range to choose from to ensure that every budget can enjoy wine with their meals.
Entrée and in particular appetizer pricing is on the high side but at the end of the day I thought the quality deserved the higher pricing. Quite frankly I can not opine on the desert pricing due to not even looking at the menu upon finishing our meal – too full!
Rated a 5+
I look forward to dining at my local XIX and do enjoy my favourites but think the mushroom soup would be just as delicious with less salt, please. Service and menu always very good.
This was a very nice restaurant with great servers and staff. Everything from the atmosphere and the meal were superb.
What can you say everything is fresh and tasty. Try the ginger beef and halibut. Absolutely delicious. This the best place to dine in St Albert. Molly and the gang do an amazing job running this St Albert he.
Small portions. Food was good but nothing special, not worth the price they charge. It was difficult having conversation as we couldn’t hear each other over the music and the tables being so deep set. However, the overall service was good. Wasn’t impressed with the food or the restaurant really, wouldn’t go back. Wouldn’t recommend it.
Excellent food. The Lobster Poutine was a little too rich for me to finish though and my husband had trouble finishing his Lamb shanks so definitely big meals! Be sure to get the beef appetizer as it was so tender and flavorful. Wonderful waitress who took the time to talk to us about our selections and was always prompt with service. Nice little upscale restaurant in St Albert.
The food was terrific, but even better was the ambiance and the service. From the moment we walked in we were treated exceptionally well. The host even asked if we were there for a special occasion. When I said it was my friend's birthday he made a point of wishing her a happy birthday. Our waiter, Nelson, was polite, friendly, efficient; he was there exactly when we needed him, but didn't hover. It was a lovely experience.
Two of us arrived a few minutes early so our table was not ready and the bar was full. After a short walk we returned to fine our other guests seated. Friday night in St. Albert requires a reservation! Excellent presentation, food and value.
