Very nice steak, quite expensive menu though.
Unfortunate table seating as we were next to wine wall and had to move often for servers to access wines.

Usually I would rave about von's but the Valentine's day menu wasn't good. Mine and my wife's steak were severely undercooked. I eat medium-rare but the first set of steaks were rare bordering on Pittsburg. They replaced the steaks but they still came back rare. The lobster was disappointing and the desserts were just alright. I have spend significantly less for a lot better meal there.... for a meal that was 100% better. I would go back but not on a day where they don't have the regular menu. My wife won't go back... She has fallen out of love with von's.

The restaurant was cold! there was a draft blowing through the place, most of the women had their jackets on, there seemed to be no heat coming out of the ceiling vents next to the windows. The menu was limited with only 3 choices....we made reservations and they ran out of prime rib! How do you run out of a reserved set menu ?? Manager cane over and comped us our drinks and they ended up being on our bill at the end of the night. The food was okay, not worth the price which was paid! This was a special night for us and it’s been our restaurant for years and we were let down. Will be going somewhere new next time

I brought my out of town business colleagues to Vons for a team dinner. We were sat at the nearest table to the door and we were cold due to the proximity. We were offered a set Valentine’s Day menu. The food cane out too quickly, like it was pre prepared, the portions were small, not hot, the prime rib was tough, and overdone. We were over sold on the Yorkshire pudding that came after we were served dinner, and it was like eating a sponge, actually referred to as a “loofa”. The share plate desserts were store bought and really not good. I apologized numerous times for my choice of restaurant. My colleagues were surprised as they had heard that Vons was an iconic Edmonton steakhouse. Thoroughly disappointing.

Super expensive! It was Valentines Day. Dessert was disappointing. Great atmosphere. Server was great but she was too busy to give great service. For the cost it would have been nice to be looked after better.

Just was not impressed at all from our previous evening out !!
Were there with friends last time and was great , this time was the opposite for some reason !!
By 9:00 there was no customers even in the establishment , that had to mean something??
Would really appreciate if a manager would get back to me ,780-632-9394 !
Best regards Terry.

As always the food was exceptional and the atmosphere was perfect. However the server was distracted, she was not incredibly attentive not the service I normally see at Vons. BUT still love this place, definitely one of my top five in Edmonton.

We wanted steak for our birthday celebrations. I had the rib eye, my son had the prime rib and my wife had the bison short ribs. All three of us were very happy with our meals. The service was great and we enjoyed taking our time over relaxed conversation.

The PEI oysters were to die for mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Alan, Our server was excellent Enjoyed the wine and the selection suited our needs/wants very well. Other than adding a $2.50 charge for the change from one type of potato to another, kinda petty I thought... Overall very good it is a definite repeat...

We booked a private room for a bday celebration. Our first glitch was a call to note they didn’t actually have a private room available as they had double booked them. We were assured our large group with several young children would be well placed in the dining room. When we arrived the hostess seemed to have lost our reservation all together & when they found it had no notes of our discussion when we learned the private room couldn’t be accommodated. We were seated in the lounge at a high top table so my sister in law had to watch her 2 year old carefully so she didn’t slip out if the booster seat (all they had although we had requested & been assured they had a high chair) for the night.

Half the tables appies arrived cold & although were quickly replaced they noted they would be complimentary but we had to remind the server to take them off the bill. The lounge is loud & not great for a large group celebration. We were disappointed in the organization & accommodation for our group. We have booked larger groups there often without issue so don’t know what’s changed at Vons but hope it’s a short term glitch.
