Meal came a little on the cool side. The wine I thought was way over priced. Overall the meal tasted good. Will I go back, I will try a new place.

The service was average, the waiter forgot to bring one person their soup and items were mixed up on our bills, Plus we had an 18% gratuity fee added to our bill. The food was average but nothing special for the prices.

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.

Well, i had heard good things about Von's so i decided to try it for V-Day 2018. We reviewed the menu together and thought it might be nice. Well, three days before V-Day i recieved a call telling me that the menu we reviewed was not being served and that there was a V-Day menu only available. It being three days before the occasion, i knew that there was no way to get reservations anywhere else so I reluctantly agreed.

Service sat us at a table that was clearly broken and wobbled to the point where it was actually -likely- something would tip over, and under an air conditioning unit, hoping we wouldn't complain. We did, and they moved us. without much complaint but we observed them pull the same shenanigans with patrons after us. Just fix your table, for God's sake.

Went on Valentine's Day 2018. Food was rather lackluster and the portions were -very- small. Now i'm certainly not new to fine dining and portion sizing, but for a four course meal it was rather disappointing and I actually left hungry. Was told that all beef options were served medium, and we couldn't choose. My girlfriend won't eat anything that isn't cooked well and while that isn't necessarily in my opinion the best way to eat a steak, she should still have the option of deciding how cooked her meat is. So she pretty much hated her meal. She liked the mashed potatoes but that was about it. Also, they didn't serve her the yorkshire pudding that was advertised on the menu even at all. No explanation, nothing. Just hoped we wouldn't notice.

For myself, The mushroom soup served was rather bland and lackluster ( I've eaten better mushroom soup at Joey's, which can hardly be called fine dining.) and the swordfish was tough, dry, and chewy. Desert wasn't good at all and tasted like it was prepackaged. Some kind of cheescake style thing that didn't taste like anything but cheap fondant.

Oh, and my server helped herself to a 22% gratuity, above the agreed upon 18% listed on the menu.

Very nice atmosphere. Very good service. Took my gf there for Valentine's day. It was a romantic dinner. Highly recommended

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

Vons never disappoints! Valentine dinner was incredible and very filling. The service was spectacular as usual. 10/10, will dine again.

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.

Excellent food. We got sat in a room which was quiet, but outside the room it was a bit noisy. The service was excellent. Would go back again.

Best prime rib in Edmonton, great sea food as well, great wine selection, friendly staff, free parking, quiet , quick service but not rushed complete your meal. Over-all a fantastic place for fine dining.
