Von's Steakhouse & Oyster Bar Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
The waitress and staff were not very welcoming it felt as they were not willing to serve us. We had no plates and had to ask for everything. We also felt rushed and not welcomed. Also we got a parking ticket even though they told us we get free parking as guests there and I provided my license plate number to them.
Went last night - it was our third time. Our steaks (NYS) were tough. Mine was over cooked, husbands was cooked perfect. As I was cutting my last piece of steak I found a hair underneath it. My baked potato was huge but very dry as they were very cheap with the toppings. When ordering a second bacon Caesar I had to wait close to 15 minutes as “they” were changing the Clamato..... definitely not what we are used to quality or service wise. Very disappointed!!!
New Years Eve dinner was amazing from the time we arrived to the time we left. The service was outstanding and the ambiance incredible. Seated beside the fireplace as requested was devine. Thanks to all the staff for making our New Years Eve a wonderful, memorable experience!!
Our service was fantastic. However the food was subpar, the steak burger was extremely salty and steaks were not seasoned. We ordered prime rib steaks, it was simply pan seared. I had to add the garlic butter from our bread, salt and pepper to season it. For the value, it was not worth it. We were celebrating a graduation meal with my family. The private room was nice. Overall our experience was good because the service made up for the meal. We dine at Vons at least a 4 times a year, the food had always been expectional however this time it was not. We left disappointed.
It was extremely cold outside and we were greeted at the door and hustled to a cozy table. They had set up a couple of space heaters to keep the room warm which was a nice touch. The service was great, waiter was funny and accommodating but not hovering. The food was very tasty but my husband’s steak was slightly overdone. They offered to get him a new one but he declined and they offered us desert instead. The service was prompt and the food was very good. We will return.
Well, in my opinion I loved the taste of everything. But, the oysters were too crunchy for some reason and the garlic bread was overcooked. The portion sizes were very small for dinner. The people were nice and it's a beautiful place, but the food quality needs to be stepped up.
Requested a private table for our wedding anniversary on a Wednesday night. 2 other tables in the entire restaurant and they sat us right next to a family of 8. Dining room was so cold I didn't have feeling in my fingers by the time we left. Steaks weren't cooked correctly. $150 wasted, we could have done better at home for much less.
I reserved a table well in advance and indicated that my wife and I were celebrating our very first date 45 years ago. Parking next door in a paid parking area; however just register your vehicle when you arrive for free parking. We arrived on time and were greeted by a tall girl who confirmed our reservation. She asked if we would like to check our coats and we said yes so she gave my wife the coat hanger to hang the coats. Hmmmmm normally the hostess will actually take the coats to hang them then place them in the cloak room. Anyway we were escorted to our table beside the fireplace. Very nice ambiance in the dining room and the tables were not too close together. Diane took good care of us from beginning to end. Drink orders were placed and served in good time. Placed our appetizer and food order. I had the jumbo prawn cocktail and my wife had the Mushrooms Neptune. Both aps arrived after only 7 minutes and were delicious. The mains arrived 10 minutes afterwards. I had the 14 oz. prime rib and my wife had the 6 oz. filet both medium rare and cooked to perfection. The 6 oz. filet looked very small and I'd question if it was in fact 6 oz. There was no seasoning at all on the filet which was rather unusual so my wife had to use salt. My PR was a hefty cut with nice fat throughout(which I cut off) Good size Yorkshire pudding came with it as did a side of horseradish and gravy, not Au Jus which disappointed me. The PR flavor was okay but the gravy was a packaged variety with zero au jus added which would have nicely added additional flavor to the meat. I just salted the PR and left out the gravy. Plates were promptly taken and we ordered dessert. Creme brule for my wife and double chocolate cake for me both of which were tasty. Disappointing with the very small portion size of the unseasoned filet and also no Au Jus for the prime rib. Also
disappointing was the fact that no one acknowledged our 45th anniversary of our first date!!
I got a table at Vons steakhouse in the lounge for a birthday party. The atmosphere was perfect and service was outstanding. Everyone was talking about how much fun they had. Owner is super friendly and makes sure everyone has an awesome experience!! Would hold another party here in a heartbeat. Thanks guys!
