Sawmill - Edmonton Capilano
Capilano Sawmill’s Executive Chef is well versed in the Sawmill menu. Your taste buds will be treated to traditional Sunday Brunch and of course the most famous, most succulent, most mouth watering prime cuts of AAA Alberta beef around.
The fine dining experience offered by Capilano Sawmill will be an exciting opportunity for Edmontonians to tantalize their taste buds. Capilano Sawmill also features a massive 2500 sq-ft. two-tier patio where you can enjoy your favourite beverages on a hot sunny day!
We brought our granddaughter out to the Sawmill for dinner and we all enjoyed the experience very much.
Love this place; always a great place to dine
Prime rib was superb
We went because of the 2for1 prime rib special. The prime rib was excellent and good value. The service however was terrible! Our server took our drink order and then only brought waters. We had to ask twice for the drink. She also said she would bring buns and we had to ask again for them.
We ordered an appetizer and had to ask for that a second time as well. She blamed it on the kitchen.
We ordered the prime rib and she said the special was on any size but only came as described with sides and Yorkshire pudding. When it arrived it was covered with mushrooms and our choice of side. One of us was extremely allergic to mushrooms! She took it back to the kitchen. Finally she came with a plate of veggies and potatoes so we were both eating. Eventually the replacement prime rib arrived. We were half done eating our main meal when what is brought to us? Our appetizer! A little late! For The Sawmill, we expected far better service than what was provided. It wasn't even busy so there was no excuse! There was no compensation either which was not right! I would still recommend but would hope that server would be let go.
Sanjay took great care of us, as usual! Our group will definitely be back for our next birthday celebration.
Food was lukewarm
Our server was amazing. He never left an empty dish sitting on our table, and checked in on us just the right amount of times. He even got the kitchen to spell out "happy anniversary" in caramel sauce on our dessert plate.
Love your brunch! Was great to celebrate my brothers 30th. Breakfast foods are my favourite, so happy you had lots of those too!
We found that pretty much every dish was over cooked. The meats were dry, the Eggs Benedict was over cooked the egg was hard. I was very disappointed, we haven’t been to the Sawmill in a very long time. I would never go back. The only thing that was amazing was the carved beef.
Excellent service, the food was great and I sure appreciated the birthday discount!
Food, service and ambiance is great. We had some special dietary requests that were met with no issues at all. Quality of food was very good and the steak prepared just as requested. Service was very attentive. Noticed they have a new lunch buffet, will have to try that!
We celebrated my parents 52nd anniversary dinner and had a lovely time. The service and food were exceptional!
The Sunday Brunch was exceptional. Selection and quality were outstanding. Our server and other staff were customer focused and made us feel like royalty. Overall a great experience.
Brunch was great, service was excellent!! I would definitely go again. In fact we usually go for Morhers Day but this time it was my mother in laws bday.
Prime rib was a little tougher then I would like, but the sticky toffee pudding was next level!!
We had an awesome time...it was my daughter’s birthday and Sanjay bent over backwards for us...the nicest man...he could not do enough for us!!
Such great service: discrete, personable and professional! I appreciate the ability to talk without interruption and the quality of the food.
Good to be able to go somewhere and count on having a great meal
New menu item labelled gluten free had issues as the chef identified the box labelled may contain wheat. New item selected
From the moment we arrived we were greeted at the door with happy friendly staff. This set the tone for the entire evening. The staff were very friendly and made us feel welcomed. The service was point on. The meal was cooked to perfection and the presentation was first class. An unforgettable experience. I would highly recommend the capilano sawmill to anyone who wants a first class dining experience. It was my anniversary and my wife’s experience was absolutely perfect. Thank you.
Very disappointing. Out of 8oz fillets. 2 of our group wanted the filets and ordered prime rib instead and got shoe leather . Rude server... will NEVER go back. Was the worst dining experience ever and was my 36th anniversary
We were greeted and seated right away. Service was quick for our drink orders, the wine we chose was very good and reasonably priced. The lunch menu is quite diverse, I had the fish and chips a great treat for me and my companions thoroughly enjoyed the beef dip. Service was great, accomodating and professional. We enjoyed the experience and will definitely be back.
I have been to that location many times in the past and always enjoyed the food quality and great selection. Unfortunately the last visit on July 28th, 2019 (to celebrate my son's 15th Birthday) was not a good experience. The waiter was nice, but something was very wrong with the food. We arrived at 11:25 AM and my son was outside already at 11:45 AM, feeling very nauseated (after eating 3 pieces of bacon with hashbrown and a very small piece of chicken). I hoped that after getting some fresh air, he would feel better. Unfortunately that was not the case. Then I felt really sick after trying basa fish (I tried it before and it was always good). I paid the bill fast (yes, with tip, as always) and left quickly at 12:08 PM. My son and I ended up with stomach problems. My daughter was less affected, but she generally has "an iron stomach". I will also mention that the selection (not just the quality) was poor, comparing with all the other past visits (even the lettuce/salad was wilted - seriously). I don't think I will be risking another visit to the Sawmill in the future. This time it was an expensive and unpleasant lesson. If I ate that food blindfolded, I would never have guesses that it was Capilano Sawmill since the past visits were always positive (and delicious). Very disappointed.
We are return customers, usually for drinks and quick meal after work, but we decide4d to go for brunch this time. We are glad we did! The variety of food, the attentive service, and the semi private room we were able to reserve for us made for a delightful time.
Great food. Great service. From the hostess through the server we were well treated.
Everything was great except the loud people behind us were loudly talking and cussing. Definitely wrecked the mood.
Besides that, everything else was great.
It was a perfect evening with family to celebrate our anniversary. The waiter (sorry I don’t have his name) was excellent. He took care of us all evening especially my two young grandsons. It is an excellent restaurant that we have visited many times as a family. Thank you!
Sanjay is an amazing host and really makes you feel you are a valued patron!
The buns were hard, and hard to eat. There were fruit flies.
The waiter was excellent. I wanted to see a desert menu, but he never brought me one.
I absolutely loved my french onion soup!
Question: Why would you charge 26$ for 5 shrimp?
Food was great
Service was great as usual
Outstanding. Good acoustics. Great service. I was changing my baby’s diaper in the bathroom and when I came out my food had been delivered and was cold. I understood that wasn’t the restaurant’s fault and asked them if they wouldn’t mind warming up the food. Instead they insisted they make me a new meal from scratch. Great management. Great food too! ;)
Exeelllent service and friendliness by Bruno. I ordered Caesar salad with Garlic toast. It was a generous serving but the croutons were very hard. The dressing had been poured in the middle. I didn't discover it until I was almost finished the salad. A Caesar salad should be tossed with the lettuce and croutons before serving.
It was my wife's birthday and we had excellent service and enjoyed ourselves
Always have a great time at this location. The service and meals are always good.
Being Father's Day, restaurant was extremely busy but very refreshing to have awesome service and friendly staff, definitely will be back!
Thanks for a great brunch. Your eggs benny were delish.
The food for Father's day brunch was really good. Service really good.
Food was good, a few more options would have been awesome
Food was as expected. We were there to dine at leisure. Service was too rushed. It felt like I was in a fast food restaurant.
Amazing brunch for an excellent price worth every penny
Overall was good. Our server could have been more attentive to our table.
They were out of some sirloin and filet mignon and the prime rib and other steak ordered was poorly cooked. Med raw was ordered and got rare and tough. Very disappointed. The quality of the food has really declined over the years. We used to be regulars but doubt we will return.
