Wildflower Grill Ratings and Reviews
The food was excellent! The Heritage salad was very tasty. The Entre we ordered was lamb Shanks with Squash Gnocchi; which was perfectly done & had great flavours. Their Signature cocktail; Wildflower Breeze was very good, however for the amount you get it was overpriced,
The service was average. The waitress didn't introduce herself, didn't take the time to light the candle on our table & never asked if I wanted another cocktail or wine just before the meal was about to be served.
I asked the waitress what a particular item was in the salad. She had no idea but said she would find out for me. She never did.
Overall, we thought the food was excellent, but the service good improve to match the level of the food experience.
I think my expectations were a bit too high. The menu was kinda odd imho, it was a bit limited. settled on wagyu rib eye, ($ 62) it was excellent and perfectly med rare. the veg was tasty and nice sauces.
wife had Icelandic cod, ($42 ish) she was pleased with it but the protein portion was a wee bit small i'd estimate 5oz. she was pleased with flavour and veg was good.
the ambiance was a bit off too. maybe just starting to get old, it was clean but getting worn.
all in all food was great and thats what we went for, i don't think the food would disappoint anyone.
maybe they just need to get together and brainstorm some fresh ideas, reprint an upgraded menu and get some tablecloths. They have all the building blocks to be great, just needs a little sizzle.
Wildflower was once my favourite 'special' place. After a hiatus from such pleasures, I looked forward to the selection of small plates, the charming amuse bouche and the delightful treats at the end of a meal. Understandably, change must occur to stay fresh and current (like the food), but I found nothing at Wildflower that I was looking forward to. The oysters were delicious, the server was wonderful, but what separated Wildflower from its many competitors has vanished.
My colleague and I enjoyed an excellent lunch at Wildflower. The Duck Confit was exceptional. The Sticky Toffee dessert was delicious. If this venue had a large room it would be excellent to host educational dinner presentations. Very impressed with the service here.
I would highly recommend this place for a business lunch.
Happy to see a few more gluten free options but disappointed that did not include the pasta options. I had a problem with a hot beverage. I ordered coffee forgetting how very very strong it arrives. My friend took the coffee and I ordered English breakfast tea. Unfortunately that was not what was delivered. It tasted and smelled like bergamo to which I am allergic so I assume it was Earl Gray. But the food as usual was great!
Our lunch was very good, duck confit , pork schnitzel and wild mushroom barley risotto. With the exception of to much salt on the spaetzel everything else was top notch.
The decor needs a good upgrading, the restaurant is looking tired. Needs new covering on the bench seats and the table are worn.
The server seemed fairly new as she was tentative but did a good job .
We will return as the food made up for any deficiencies.
We enjoyed our dining experience here. I have one small quibble about the food. I ordered the duck and it was well prepared however, there were too many elements on the plate. Two or three sauces plus other elements all in the same colour palate. I would describe it as “busy”.
Sadly one of our favourite restaurants has seen better days. Plus it was very expensive $230 for two included tip and wine .
They tried to explain that the menu is changing , but the menu we were given was very limited and not at all exciting.
Only three tables occupied
This was a fabulous place to meet friends. I doubt we will be back anytime soon.
As with our visit there in early August/17, we were served by the same waiter & seated at the same table.
Very professional, friendly & humorous waiter who actually remembered us from our August visit.
Wonderful specials that evening, worth the recommendation, tasty desserts, particularly the sticky toffee pudding, & excellent red wine sangria!!!
It’s too bad we don’t live in Edmonton as we would dine there at least twice a month, particularly if we knew what specials were being offered! My wife & I highly recommend it.
Moderately expensive, but excellent quality of food, fresh ingredients & cooked to perfection.
We enjoyed a lovely evening with friends in a quiet, nicely lit setting. Our meals were fantastic in flavour and nicely portioned and presented. We required some explanation of the very, perhaps overly, creative menu. Our young waiter, while perhaps a bit over the top in his descriptions and manner, was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. We look forward to returning for another great meal.
I am unfortunately unable to leave a good review for Wildflower Grill. I have frequented the restaurant many many times, and this is my first negative review. A friend and I booked a reunion lunch yesterday. We arrived right on our reservation time--11:45. We were seated by the friendly hostess, but no one had ventured near our table except the hostess to fill our water glasses by 12:14. We finally beckoned the hostess over and asked if we could order, as we both had to return to work for the afternoon. She put in our order and delivered our food. We were NEVER greeted by our "server", he came at 12:40 when our food was delivered and asked if we wanted pepper. that is it. We were never offered a beverage besides water, never asked if we wanted dessert, had to ask twice for coffee (again from the hostess). I described it as our "server-less" meal. We left a 15% tip but told the hostess, who again, took our payment, that we wanted her to have the tip. no one deserves 15% for offering you pepper and ignoring you during your whole dining experience. I was embarrassed as I recommended the restaurant to my friend. Two men sitting beside us came in 15 minutes after we did, had our servers full attention and received their food 20 minutes before we did. It was on our minds as to why we were ignored, why when we pointed out to the hostess we were being ignored that nothing was done, and why even though the hostess put in our order, that the daily special and a salad took 1/2 hour. It will be a long time before I will be back to the Wildflower -- worst service, or rather non-service I have had in a long long time, and it felt like it was simply because we were women and deemed not important to our server. At any time if he came over and apologized and started "serving us" we would have welcomed it and it could have turned our dining experience around. Sooooooo disappointing.
I've been to Wildflower Grill several times, and it is consistantly good food and great service. I typically go there for business lunches, but I would definitely go there in the evening as well. The menu changes frequently enough to stay interesting, and the atmoshere is comfortable. Prices are reasonable, alos.
Wildflower Grill had long been one of my favourite restaurants, and this meal simply reinforced that. The food was - as per usual -fantastic and the service was phenomenal (our server, Don, was a hoot and even managed to get us to try raw oysters for the first time. You can imagine my sister's horror at being told that the oysters were still alive!!).
Always highly recommended.
The venue was very nice and cozy. Being an avid dinner in Edmonton we found the food at Wildflower to be underwhelming at the price point. The vegetarian option was excellent. The food is good at Wildflower but there is better restaurants in the city with comparable dishes that I believe is better bang for your buck.
It was my husband and my wedding anniversary and we were told the restaurant would provide us with some oysters or a dessert, which was very lovely.
But then my husbands order was wrong. We were understanding, my husband didn’t want to send the food back, but we were told again dessert would be on them.
We ordered and ate our desserts. One dessert was in fact free. It wasn’t terrible, it just wasn’t what we were expecting.
Food was very tasty and a bit on the expensive side. The server was very patient with us as we made our way through the menu and tried to decide what to have (not a lot of options, but all of them sounded delicious). Food came out in a reasonable amount of time, tasted good, and was an appropriate portion size.
Overall experience was excellent.
We made reservations for a birthday celebration. The space is cozy and comfortable with low lighting and quiet mood music. The slightly stark apple menu helped us decide to head directly to our mains. The Widlfower never disappoints and this was no exception. Brilliant flavours, excellent presentation and courteous but attentive service culminating in an unforgettable dining experience!
The food was good but the portions were so small that I couldn't believe it. We paid top $ for two pieces of bison ( if I recall) and pedestrian vegetables, and my son's vegan meal was $36 for a small amount of vegetables. Also we were told his dinner was $30 but after it was half eaten, were told it was $36.
Very disappointing and I could never recommend this restaurant to anyone, despite beth fact that the food was good, just terribly overpriced!
I have never written a bad review but just had to so others wouldn't have a similar experience.
