High quality delicious food. Generous portions. Excellent service. Beautiful setting overlooking the River. We will definitely return!
Primo location. Traditional meals with a contemporary twist.
Great food great service great scenery
I would highly recommend it!
Loved the atmosphere
Service & location was excellent. It was nice to use the outside deck with views of park & river. They offer full gluten free menu selections. Over all, Food was very good. We do recommend.
Fresh and healthy choices with some delicious local options.
I enjoyed the Beet and Arugula salad with Lake Diefenbaker trout.
We really enjoyed the food. We would have preferred to sit outside as it was a nice evening but didn't have this option. Inside was a little bland but Covid is just about over.
Always a great experience! Staff know us so well, that they bring us our beverage as soon as we come in. They are fabulous!!!
Overall was fine server could have done some up selling, sat there with a empty glass of wine and was never asked if I would like another
Beautiful space and views of the South Saskatchewan river & River Landing. Great wine list and lovely, thoughtful and tasty food options.
From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with a friendly welcome by the hostess and shown to our table on the patio. John went above and beyond to accommodate our vegetarian guests and ensure we had a very tailored dining experience. He made outstanding recommendations and the chefs were able to modify dishes to suit our dietary needs. Thanks so much, Shift!
MY spouse and I celebrated our Wedding Anniversary at Shift recently. It was wonderful! The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful! Thanks to the creative chefs and the attentive wait staff!
We had the reservation for 11am but by the time our food came it was 12:15. Server was very nice but the wait for food was outrageous. Food is overpriced for what they serve.
Waited an hour and a half for our food
Good food and polite staff, would dine here again. The happy hour specials are my most recommended options.
The food was very good. Top quality produce cooked just right.
Beautiful place for our birthday lunch 💜
Although my steak was cooked perfectly, I thought that they could have used a better cut beef for the $45. Beautiful location
I had put instructions in for a special occasion but the server did not read the instructions and even after I told her to check the instructions she didn’t follow through.
Great food ( I had the lamb and banock). Wonderful service, efficient, professional and still friendly. Wonderful young lady! Ate outside with the River beside us! Best view from a restaurant. Will go back for sure.
Always excellent! From the staff to the setting to the food ... always great!
Chance to catch up with old friend. Great food, excellent service - there when needed, but in the background when discussion going. Will definitely head back, and make some time for a drink on the patio!
Another wonderful dining experience here; the patio and the views can not be compared to anywhere else!
From the moment we got there until the moment we left we felt we were important. Hats off to the group here! My kids, my mom and I will be back!
Wonderful spot to meet people and share some time with the perfect view. Nice, quiet setting and tasty food (really excellent cakes and coffee!)...What else can you ask for?
Service was wonderful. But the bathrooms were filthy.
We had a beautiful lunch on the deck with the sun shining . Shift has a very unique outstanding menu and have been here twice in the last month because the meals are so tastefully done and delicious. Kudos to the Chef and staff for making this restaurant a true class act in downtown Saskatoon! Highly recommend to sit on the deck and enjoy the beautiful riverbank and be treated by great staff!
9th Birthday celebration with grandparents. Staff made her feel very special and she was so happy. Food was great but hamburger very messy to eat. Good kids menu. A little expensive. Definitely will come again to enjoy the outside patio. Wait staff did an excellent job. Am looking forward to visiting the art gallery soon.
Great lunch on the patio at Shift! Perfect location, amazing food that you can tell the Chef takes pride in creating. Service was wonderful. One of the best restaurants in Saskatoon. Highly recommend!
Brunch all day Sunday. Delicious not too crowded and laid back casual atmosphere. Portions sizes are large
Good food and great service
It was a good occasion but music too loud. And I don’t care for duck fat. Thanks
The folks at Shift are not in your face; they simply serve good food and allow you to eat it in peace
The calamari is grilled instead of battered and deep fried and it is absolutely delicious! Everything we ate was seasoned beautifully and the caesars were very tasty. I always love eating here, especially with the river views!
Ambiance of a hospital and food of that of a cafeteria. White plain walls. Cheap tables. Plating is amateur and awkward. Ordered pork shoulder. Service in a tiny cast iron pan. Cannot cut it without your side spilling out the side. Ordered “charred” calamari When something is charred on expects that not alimony boiled chewy squid bathed in olives. Olives are not even mentioned in the description. Music is repetitive with no soul. Do better. Will not ever be back.
Great view of the river. Good food. Good service. We'll probably go back.
If you go to Shift for brunch, lunch , dinner or drinks as I have done it opened do make sure you take the time to see the exhibitions at the REMAI!
Excellent as ALWAYS!
We had an outstanding meal. Amazing cocktails and wonderful service. Can't wait to return.
Our dishes were outstanding and unique, as was our appetizer. Did not have room for dessert, but really wanted to try one. Next time, perhaps! Service was fantastic - friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend to self-proclaimed “foodies” or anyone looking to enjoy a nice night out.
