We have all the Sawmill tradition in this new location, but we’ve added a real modern flair to it as well. It’s the same cozy and professional dining experience guests have come to expect from Sawmill over the years in a more modern setting.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!!
Thanks

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.

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!

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?

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.

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.
