As always great food and service!
Will miss this restaurant!
Went here for my anniversary. The food and service were fantastic. Also loved the space and it was surprisingly quiet. My only complaint is that quality of the beverages was a little underwhelming for the price. The Rob Roy was good, but not fantastic. The Old Fashioned was far too sweet, which made me a little sore about the price.
Packrat has come back to the great place it was before. Went in with low expectations and was very pleasantly surprised that both the food and the service were fantastic and back to the high standard Packrat was years ago.
Offered a different bottle of wine as they ran out of the one we had ordered. Replacement bottle was excellent and turned into two.
Back on the list of great places to go.
We had a great time at Packrat Louie’s. The service was exceptional as was the food. We began with a Caesar salad that was one of the best I have had in a restaurant. This was followed by a Risotto with cherry tomatoes ,mushrooms,prawns and chorizo. It was very tasty indeed. The dessert menu also looked interesting but unfortunately we had had enough to eat.
There were a couple of mishaps: mainly that the steak was over seared completely on one side, the Wellington would only come out medium at the rarest, and that the dessert we picked had nuts despite an allergy. On the latter, the waitress didn’t bring out the dessert and offered us an alternate dessert in the house.
All in all great experience
first time dining here, will definitely not be the last. A+ wine list, A++ food quality/presentation, A+++ service. This may quickly become a regular date night go-to
We went to use a gift card we were given.
My wife had the pork chop which was very good.
I had the Beef Wellington witch was eatable but was clearly premade and reheated. I could tell it was probably good when it was fresh.
Our first time at Packrat Louis and it truly lived up to its’ reputation. The decor was very intimate! The duck wings, pizza and salmon were delicious! Everything was perfectly seasoned, the ideal temperature and every attention was paid to us. We’ll be back!
My meal was excellent from start to finish, in both quality and quantity. My partner was not so satisfied with the quantity of scallops / prawns in her starter, and the menu gave the impression of more. The service was excellent: efficient and discreet. The atmosphere is friendly and varies from casual to very well-dressed. The price is high for Edmonton, but the quality IS high.
Great service, friendly staff the food was excellent
Really appreciated having organic salmon on your menu. Server very informative and helpful.
Excellent meal well cooked and seasoned. Not too noisy for our get together.
We were well taken care of, the service was excellent and friendly. The food looks and tastes great! We had a very enjoyable time with friends. We will be back!
Food was good as always, unfortunately our server (male) this time around was sub-par / borderline horrible. He was rude and appeared to want to rush EVERYTHING ... including the bill. First visit for my wife so the experience unfortunately left a bitter taste in her mouth afterwards.
Really nice place with superb service and really good food! Make sure you save space for dessert, the chef selection has not yet disappointed! Perfect for special date nights or fancier occasions,
Great presentation, tasty food and good service. The decor is elegant and rustic, with a fun date or dinner party ambience.
Food was excellent but service was extremely slow. We weren’t in a rush so not a huge factor but there were a few times we sat with no drinks.
We went to packrat louis for our valentine lunch celebration. The selection on the lunch menu was great. I had the special and the kitchen was able to revamp the special for my dietatary needs. Our server was the best.
The food was well presented and absolutely delicious!!!!!
We will return.
Went for Valentine’s Day. Massively overpriced for what you received - and this is coming from a person who enjoys very fine dining. The food was fine, but nothing above what you could expect to receive at a higher end chain like Joey or Moxies. The service was adequate, but not amazing by any means.
All in, the $220 I spent for two people would have been MUCH better spent at a place like Hardware Grill. I probably won’t return.
Went for the Valentines Day meal. Service was excellent. Ambiance was excellent. It was the food that was the issue. Served burnt lobster tail, but overall nothing impressed. Just wasn’t that tasty. Had creme brûlée and brownie for desert .... creme brûlée was off in texture .... wasn’t curdled but had that texture. Brownie was not moist at all. Thought it was just me but others had the same impressions. Ultimately, can’t recommend it.
The appetizers were amazing and the wine list more than adequate. The main course was excellant, the only minor negative was the meat portion was quite small.
Excellent dinner and Natalie did a great job on recommending the wines. Her service was excellent.
The food was excellent however service was mediocre. Our drinks were constantly empty and we had to ask for refills. It also took a long time between ordering and receiving our food. We allowed 2 hours for dinner and then had to be somewhere else and we just received our meals half an hour before we had to leave.
Great food and some of the best service that I've received in the last 20 years. We will be back.
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. Neither of us had even heard of this place beforehand and after the first bite, the first words out of his mouth were “oh we HAVE to come back here.” Amazing food and excellent service. Will definitely be going again!
Amazing meal and cocktails, impeccable service, Charlotte's recommendations were spot on and our meal was lovely.
Our meal and the service were both awesome. Thank you for a great evening!
Stellar service and delicious food not to mention a quiet but cool atmosphere! Perfect night out on a snowy day.
Had great meal with Family, both food and service was great , will go back
Great service. Our server, Charlotte was wonderful: helpful and very professional.
I felt the appetizer, scalllop and shrimp on a potato nest was a bit overpriced.
This restaurant has excellent food and craft cocktails. However, if you’re looking to be “wowed” by the service I’d suggest going elsewhere. I was left feeling as though my visit, while delicious, was slightly lack luster - especially considering the price point.
The food was amazing! The portions are small for the price but it was delicious. They have an extensive cocktail list as well. Overall it was a good experience
First time there, and I'd definitely go back again.
Overall a good experience. Service was quick and efficient. Only complaint is that the soup was served lukewarm and even after sending it back, it was presented a second time at a less than acceptable temperature.
My quick review on this restaurant:
This was phenomenal experience of taste, atmosphere and service. We were recommended to come to this restaurant and I decided to take wifey for her birthday. Booking a table though the OpenTable app made everything very easy abd gave me the opportunity to tell the restaurant that birthday girl was coming.
On arrival the greater welcomed us with a birthday message and on our table was a hand made birthday ornament that was greatly appreciated. it was so nice to know that someone took the time to build such wonderful expression of thought for an incoming customer.
We ordered several starters and several mains and shared them
amongst ourselves. our food was cooked to our liking and we impressed by what we were tasting.
The service that we received was by far the best i have ever experienced. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable of the menu, presented all options in a delightful and friendly manner, and was genuine in her approach. I wish i knew her name so i could personally thank the owners for having such a wonderful member of the team.
With many more birthdays and special occasions to come, we will be back
The atmosphere was cosy and upbeat. The server was very helpful and friendly!
What a cozy space with excellent food. The menu selections were great and our waiter's recommendations were spot on. I'll be back for sure!
Disappointing service. Very quiet evening during our visit, but server was non existent. Food was exceptionally good.
Great food, great service and I loved the ability to make my reservation on line!
Great vibe and very clean. Food was next level and priced moderately. Service was excellent and seemed to be the case at other tables as well. The only downside side to our experience was a ornery table behind us cursing and carrying on. Staff was obviously aware of what was going on but didn't take any corrective measures. In the end our meal and the service was great. We'll return.
