The server was also the bartender and host, he was friendly but we all questioned if we got the right cocktails as they were all slightly off. So overall cocktails were slight disapointment . food was incredible and on time however one dinner order was wrong, but she ate the plate anyways. Server came back to our table many times for water and to check on us.

Overall quality has greatly diminished. Explicitly stated there was a carrot allergy and was served carrots! Oddly served sorbet in a warmed dish. Poor service. No lunch specials or drink specials.

We all had a burger which was good, but it was smaller than average and for $19.00. Plus it was very chilly and we were not sitting by the door. I went several years ago for dinner and it was very good and I found the price in line with the ambiance. It was a business lunch which is convenient as I work in the area, but I do not think we will be back.

Although the food was great, the experience was meh.
One of the servers had an argument with a kitchen staff member, which included some swear words, that could be heard from our table at the front of the restaurant. Unprofessional.
It also seemed a little understaffed the evening we went. The one (of two) gentlemen seen seemed to be the host, server, and bartender for all the tables.
The food service/timeliness also seemed a little slow, but that could be because of the lack of staffing.
The plating/presentation could use some work as well. Although the food was filling, the way it was presented looked as though you were hardly being served much food at all.
I have been to the wildflower grill 3 times now, and was quite surprised at this poor experience as compared to my first two times.
The host did advise us there was a management change so this might be the reasoning.

The food was very good and service was good at our lunch. The washroom was not clean however and overall the restaurant needs some maintenance. This is surprising since the Wild Fire is located in a hotel and one would think the washrooms in particular would be regularly cleaned. The ring around the toilet in the smaller cubicle looked like it had been there a very long time. Going into a dirty bathroom takes the enjoyment out of a meal you just had. I have always considered the Wild Fiire to be an upscale restaurant with great design, ambience, service and exceptional food. They need to improve.

I came here years ago and it was great, but it's changed for the worse. The host wasn't friendly (although our server was), the leather booth was cracked and torn, our menus were slightly crumpled, one of the dishes listed wasn't available, there was no music playing, no daily feature on offer (on a Saturday), they didn't have the wine we ordered, and the portion of meat in one of the meals was very small. Food was good, but not for the price, and a lot of little things taken together left me unimpressed.

Second time dining here. First time food was excellent. This time our server was awful. Food was very average. Restaurant almost empty but put another group right beside us. Overall not a good experience. Especially for the expense.
Two decent ($160/bottle) bottles of wine. Server poured from second bottle into partially full glasses and argued with us about doing it. For that cost taste in new glass is expected. Poor server

I have heard great things about the Wildflower Grill but I was actually disappointed. Three of us went out for a Girls Night and this was not the ambiance I was expecting. There was no background music on at all so the restaurant was very quiet. The decor was quiet dated and the banquette we sat at had tattered cushions. The service was average.

The appetizers and dessert were great. The entrees were not very good. Both my friend and I ordered the halibut and it was so over cooked and dry. For $36 I expect my halibut to be prepared correctly. My Moscow Mule was average. For $12 I would have expected it to be in a copper mule mug.

I thought it was a little strange that they shut the restaurant down at 9pm?!?!?

I love being able occasionally take a break from work and enjoy a relaxing meal at one of downtown Edmonton's restaurants. I haven't tried all the downtown restaurants yet, but so far, the Wildflower grill is one of my favourites. The food is memorable, and the atmosphere and service make it a relaxing and enjoyable meal.

My colleagues and I came here for lunch. We each ordered something different, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I had the scallops carbonara, which is easily the best carbonara I have ever eaten. I will be back to eat that dish again!
We sat on the patio, which is small but adequate.
Our food took over half an hour to come, which is a little long considering they were not busy. However that was soon overlooked when our meals arrived, because they were so good. Our waiter, however, was the slightly sour note in our lunch. He never smiled or held any sort of eye contact, and really seemed that he wanted to be somewhere else. He did come check on us several times so that was good; but his attitude was certainly mediocre at best.
Overall, I was very impressed at the lovely meals we got for the price, and I'll be back again.

It would have been nice to have more options on the menu. My guest chose the mac n cheese and I had the crispy chicken burger we both had a salad on the side. Both meals were delicious and our server was excellant. While I would recommend this diner I would let people know of the price factor and that there were limited choices. More options would have been nice. Maybe more vegan.

Wildflower has a reputation and a fabulous location. I’ve never been before but had heard nothing but good from anyone I talked to. I went in with an expectation of something fabulous but it was fabulously something mediocre.
With so few quality lunch places downtown it should be full. I walked into a restaurant occupied like it was well after the lunch rush and I soon found out why.

The seats are worn and need to be reupholstered. The menu still hadn’t been updated for the season (winter soup in June??). The food was decent but veggies were nothing overly special and the plating didn’t get me excited and for a restaurant of this reputation the choice of paper napkins left me curious.
I’ll try it again, but someone has to breathe some revival into this young establishment that is showing more tired than its age.

Terrible dining experience . Food was the worst . Had to send back the gnocchi , tasted like rubber , the mushrooms were actually hard and crunchy . Just horrible.
They then brought the fish which was also rubbery . I did not eat it.

The food and service were delicious. I found the restaurant pretty worn - seats were cracking, looked pretty worn out. There was no AC and it was a hot night, so was very hot, and then when door was opened to cool it down, the mosquitos attacked. That is certainly not the fault of the restaurant, but I think some care needs to be put into the place as the food is very, very good.

Not impressed with the quality of cocktails, strawberry storm mint leaves were turning and cocktail had little to no taste.

We had a wonderful time and the food, wine, and service was spectacular. I had a dietary special request and felt that the Chef did not blink an eye to ensuring this need was met, without hesitation. That is not always the case in other restaurants. Bravo! One comment, it was quite warm in the restaurant, so a little cooler air would have been an asset.

Thanks for an overall wonderful experience.

Disappointed. Booked the three course mother’s day brunch as I had good experience last year, it appeared to be regular a la carte menu. Food was average. Also issues with the reservation: restaurant cancelled the confirmed online booking without notice. Fortunately was able to book for a later (less convenient) timeslot. Would not recommend.

I chose the Wildflower Grill for my wife's birthday.This is our first time to the Wildflower Grill. We live out of town so I reserved our table for five o'clock and we were the first customers of the day. Our waiter was very likable and the restaurant was very comfortable. My wife had a wonderful pork chop and I had the Bison. It was all so very tasty, I have already recommended it to a few friends. Try it,

Our dinner was a lovely surprise as we went into the Wildflower simply because we were staying at the hotel. We will definitely return and recommend to friends. Easily one of the top 5 meals I've had in Edmonton, and that is saying something with this city's vibrant and competitive restaurant scene. As a bonus, our pre-dinner cocktails were well balanced classics - something I still find lacking in many establishments where they can overdo it on exotic ingredients and forget the basics. Great, knowledgeable service to top it off.
