Hardware Grill Ratings and Reviews
Overwhelmingly accomplished experience, every time! We came to celebrate a friend's birthday with a 5 course tasting menu as paired by the expert hands of the Hardware Grill. We arrived to beautiful service, each course surmounting the other and the wine pairings were perfect bridges, every time.
The pace was spot on, the Chefs table a lovely surprise....truly a memorable evening from Edmonton's Best. The attention to detail and customer service is beautiful!
Thank you to Larry, Melinda and the staff for a beautiful Gourmet experience!
We hosted friends from out of town, and we were all very impressed with Hardware Grill. From friendly staff to fantastic food, we could not have asked for anything more. It had been a long time since my wife and I had been there, but it will not be so long before we return. Will recommend Hardware Grill to anyone looking for a classy dining experience.
We dine out a lot in Edmonton and the States and always appreciate great service and outstanding food. Hardware Grill remains as one my go to in Edmonton for a number of reason.
First of all the service is outstanding, the food will open up your palete with such amazing flavours. Whether they are decanting the wine or serving one of their delicious meals, the friendly and creative staff we make you want to come back for more.
Hats off to the Hardware Grill owner and staff for being consistent. I cannot say that about any other restaurant in town.
Shane....you made our Anniversary memorable....thank you very much!

Another excellent experience at Hardware Grill. This is my favourite restaurant to celebrate special occasions in Edmonton. Each time I have dined here, it's been worth every penny.
Elk was cooked perfectly, and the accompanying sides were creative and delicious.
Each time I have been here Kyle has looked after us. Friendly, professional, attentive service; some of the best I have received (and I work in the food industry as well, so I can appreciate the level of service he provides)
Mentioned in the notes that it was my girlfriends birthday, and dessert came out with a Happy Birthday chocolate, and celebratory wishes from staff. This is my girlfriends favourite restaurant in the city and the only one she wants to celebrate her birthday at.
Well done Hardware Grill and thank you again Kyle for making our occasion a special one!
Great service. I ordered the elk and found that it was tough and under seasoned. The sides were delicious and the beef was also quite nice. White wine selection could be better for such a nice restaurant.
Overall had a lovely time with great friends.
We used to love it here, unfortunately the last two times , the sea bass ,which should be fresh , tasted old, fishy...
Two out of the four of us had it last night,we couldn't eat it and our sever didn't seem to care.
Its 48 dollars. Seeing as this now has happened twice,sadly we wont be back.
Visited Hardware Grill for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. It was absolutely the best meal we've had for years! As we were eating, we were reminiscing about other memorable meals that we've had during our travels (Jules Verne in the Eiffel Tower, Sydney Opera House, Napa Valley, etc) and Hardware Grill will now be added to our list of memorable meals. We've only lived in Edmonton for 3 years, but now I'm sad that I didn't visit earlier. I had the sea bass and it was exquisite. My husband had the elk/short rib and he was just as happy with his meal as I was with mine. We couldn't resist the dessert menu - one creme brûlée and one molten chocolate cake later, we were full. It was so delicious and the service was excellent! I can't remember the last time I rated someone 5 stars, but Hardware Grill totally deserved it.
Always a treat at the Hardware Grill! Alex provided outstanding service at just the right pace. We had the salmon and sea bass and both were delicious and full of flavour. Wine options are excellent. Dinner was lovely, perfect before the Citadel. Our sweet ending was the creme brûlée and gingerbread cake. YUM!
Always been a fan of the Hardware, however this time I was disappointed in the food, I had the beef tenderloin and there was not much taste to it, was very bland, the appetizers were ok but very small. Our server was nice and friendly, however she must not of liked the tip we gave her as she came back to the table and questioned us on it and said it wasn't really enough since she also had to cash out the kitchen at the end of her shift... I just dont think I would be back after that.
Great appetizers. The scallops were a great starter and had lots of sauce. The olive oil with the bread was so delicious. Great ceasar salad.
The mains were all good. Great tenderloin, great salmon and sea bass (the fish came out hot which was so enjoyable). But the star for our table was the lamb!!!
And the gingerbread cake was a great finish! We were all way more excited about this meal than we expected and plan to return.
Excellent evening date at the Hardware Grill. Husband and I went for our anniversary which is why we chose this awesome restaurant. Delicious food! Our waiter was excellent and knowledgable about food allergy info for myself. Even with gluten and dairy free restrictions, I had an amazing meal!
We celebrated my son's 23rd birthday. Our waiter Shane was welcoming, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. We started off sharing the scallops, Torchon foie gras, pork belly and fantastic soup of yesterday which was cream of mushroom. The 4 starters presented enough food for each of us to have a taste. The cream of mushroom soup was amazing! The Foie gras with relish was the best I have ever had. Each of us had a different entree; Beef Tenderloin (served with a bone marrow mixture which was outstanding); Sea Bass (served with a potato crepe filled with seafood, was to die for); duck was amazing and the lamb also terrific. There were so many flavours on each plate! This whole meal was one of the best I have ever had!!
We had a group of 6 going to celebrate 2 Birthdays. One of the guests of Honor was turning 60 and her and her husband had never been to hardware before.
The other 4 have all been there several times and always had a great experience, so chose the location for the 60th knowing the new diners would not be disappointed.
Between the 6 of us we managed to order about 75% of the whole menu and everything was delectable. Everyone left sated and looking forward to returning.
