Booked dinner as a birthday surprise for my girlfriend. We were met at the table by our waiter and two glasses of Champaign. Our appy came quickly (delicious) along with a great bottle of wine. The main course was steaks which were cooked perfectly. Dessert was a small piece of chocolate cake that melted in our mouths. Our waiter was very professional with just the right amount of humour. He kept our glasses full without hovering or checking a thousand times if we were ok.

Very friendly staff that provide great service. Food was tasty and nicely presented. We thought we had fair value for the money we spent and will return. The only annoyance was the dinner plates. With the food stacked in the middle of the oval plate, it was impossible to cut the steak without the plate rocking back and forth on the table. I finally shoved the food to the side of plate and was able to cut the meat.

Great lunch spot. Past few visits has been a little hit and miss as it seems like they were a bit understaffed but service was excellent and lunch was great so may have resolved! Nice selection of specials, everything came out hot, and exactly as ordered.

We had a good time. The food was good. It’s a little noisier than I had expected and seemed that it was a tad more expensive than I remembered. But was a good time and we were happy with the evening.

Attentive service--polite and helpful as well as congenial. We chose the New Year's Eve special menu and it was very tasty, well presented and definitely a good quality and quantity. Maybe because it was NYear's we were not asked if we wanted coffee/tea although the waiter did ask if there was anything else he could offer us. All around a nice treat.

We attended your restaurant on New Year,s Eve and was celebrating our 63rd wedding Anniversary. received a glass of bubbley, and that was very thoughtful. Thanks for that,
Our food arrived late and cold, was sent back and came back cold again. We have eaten
at the restaurant many times and always had good service,

I have been to the redwater grille in aspen before and loved it but Wednesday was my first visit to the south location and it could not have been better. Our server was super friendly, the ambience was lovely and the food was too die for. My steak was cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth.

I cannot rate Redwater Grille highly enough.

It was our anniversary and we went with our young adult son. We two were given a flute of champagne...nice touch, but he didn't get offered one to celebrate with us.
The food and service were excellent. The steaks were done just right, excellent quality and perfect.
When it came to pay, I had a gift card and the server told me it had to be registered on line first. I had to do this on my phone. Once done, she had to clear it with the manager. This is NOT customer friendly. When someone gives you a gift card, you should be able to give it in and that's that. This whole registration thing made it feel too business like and I felt embarrassed that I even had one and wanted to use it. It put a bit of a negative spin on the dinner.
So, yes the food is great but Redwater, can you make you gift card redemption less criminal-like for the user and more customer friendly.

We had a perfect evening. Our server Emery was a total pro and was just amazing at her job. From answering menu questions to her wine and cocktail recommendations, she was super friendly and knowledgeable. We’ve been here before so we knew what to expect food wise, but it still surpassed our expectations. This place just can’t be beat for value when you do the math: ambience + service + terrific food = 😀😀😀

The stuffed mushrooms were excellent, the cod was very nice, but they should really learn how to cook potatoes - they should not be hard in the middle but soft all the way through. One of our steaks was a bit chewy

Had a very poor experience at RedWater Macleod Trail this past weekend.

To start:

We were sat next to a window and were frozen the entire dining experience.

Starter:

We ordered the stuffed mushrooms, one of our favourites here, only to find out that the chef had now decided to put green peppers (something conveniently left off the menu) in the dish. Told the server, she said oops, that's too bad.

Main:

I ordered the pork chop, medium. It came practically pink. The seasonal vegetable were four sad yellow beets.

She ordered the salmon. It came with an uninspired glop of white rice and four sad yellow beets. The plating looked like something I would make in a rush on a Tuesday night at home.

Skipped desert, because, well why would we stay any longer?

Well the crispy Calmari wasn't crispy and overly salted not the same high calibre as previous Calimari. I'm not a professional chef by a long shot but I can serve 8 people with everything on the plate being hot, asparagus was luke warm and the potatoes cold. Our impression was it was under new ownership but it isn't. Super disappointing

Was able to book a nice booth for two prior to heading out to other local festivities. The staff was very busy and it did take a long time to get our meal. They ran out of rice but no biggee. We shared a very salad tostart and enjoyed the salmon and my date had surf and turf which he enjoyed. The vanilla Creek brûlée was decadent! The food was excellent but it took a while.

This is a favorite spot for me because it's always lovely. Quiet enough to enjoy conversation without straining and comfortable. The service is always excellent too. The menu, for me, is somewhat limited however, that doesn't stop me from frequenting this location. It leaves the other Redwater locations in the dust.

Whilst the food is consitently good, service excellent and friendly, the music is awlful, too loud and innapropriate. More consistent for a country and westrn bar. I think we will give it a miss which is a shame as I love going there, but after the last few times I don't need to be this irritated whilst spending $70 for lunch(no wine) I understand we all have different tastes in music, but background music should be just that, background music. Sorry, love this restaurant for everything else, including great staff.

Service was mediocre and as a result I am not likely to return. It started out fine but once the food arrived the server was nowhere to be found. It took forever for us to get our bills and when they arrived there were errors so then it took another 10 minutes to receive. The food was okay but for the price I expect it to be amazing.
