Hadn’t been here in awhile, and we were pleasantly surprised. Very good food and service and nice wine list. We couldn’t decide between two desserts so we ordered the one recommended by the waitress and then the restaurant brought us the other choice as well complimentary. It was a nice touch.

I from Montreal and I live in Edmonton for 22 years now . but my question is .
your plates are already pricy like 200.00$ for 2 peoples
why you give only 1/2 tale of lobster in the surf & tuff why not a full tale ?

Our first time to visit and it was on Valentine’s Day. The 6 course menu had plenty of options. Lobster
Bisque was so full of flavour and the main course we chose was the steak and lobster. Both amazing and the steak was done to perfection at medium rare! Our waitress, Joann, was exceptional. Her timing to check in on how things were going was on par. The background music was enough to not hear other tables but soft enough to add to the overall experience. Most definitely we will be back again. Don’t pass up on this beautiful gem!!!!

One of my favourite places to visit for a nice meal out. The steak my boyfriend got with his surf & turf that was on special was cooked perfectly. All of our questions and requests were handled professionally. Will continue to recommend to anyone looking for a higher end meal out in Edmonton.

Had a lovely anniversary dinner at Violono. The restaurant is in a beautiful old house in a nice neighborhood. We had the fillet and arctic char, both were very good. The fillet was cooked perfectly, and so tender. Our server was very attentive and friendly. We even got a free dessert for our anniversary. My only complaints are my fillet was supposed to come with a half lobster tail (that night's special), but it came with shrimp and scallops instead.

Everything was good as always at Violino as per usual, my girlfriend did however have the seafood special that evening and bit into a scallop and there was something hard and it had actually cracked her tooth. She has been in pain since. Other than that everything was great

I booked a table for my engagement dinner and the service was excellent. They allowed me to drop off the champagne several days early, chilled it to perfection, and even provided us a beautiful congratulatory dessert after our meal.

Great atmosphere and a memorable experience. The only minor inconvenience was that the electric fireplace near our table was broken on the day we were there, would have been a nice finishing touch had it been working.

Overall 5/5

The food was great what we got, the waitress forgot our one appetizer which is fine as it happens. She in turn give us another 1/2litre of wine which is fine if I wasn’t driving. My issue with this is she didn’t ask how to make it right just give us another 1/2litre wine, I would have like dessert instead as we couldn’t even drink the wine
