I would recommend it 7 Ravens. Good wine and great charcuterie!
My wife and I came in for NYE. It was our first time to the wine room and we were blown away. Was probably the best night out of 2015. Great wine. Great food.
When we heard that this was considered the number 1 wine bar in Edmonton, we were excited to meet with friends and see for ourselves. Whereas the wine was wonderful and the charcuterie was tasty, the server's lack of wine knowledge and palpable disinterest really marred the reputation of this place and could have contributed to a disappointing experience; it's far from the number 1 wine bar it's made to seem, online. Thank goodness we were with wonderful company. That alone made for an enjoyable evening. To us, it seemed that the server couldn't care less about us, nor the job, and was more interested in the young brunette coworker. I've never had to wait so long for a plate of fine cuisine, let alone one of charcuterie - slices of deli, some fruit and nuts, pickles, and chunks of cheese; good quality food, certainly not requiring labour-intensive prep, nor warranting a nearly 30 minute wait, however. To think gratuity was included in the price made it feel like highway robbery; rewarding lack-lustre service with a tip not worthy of the mediocre service had us feeling insulted and ripped-off. The Wine Room is too pretentious for its own good. We won't return. Do yourselves a favour. Invite friends over, have them bring some wine, go to the Italian Centre Shop to buy your own charcuterie, breads and crackers, and keep the money you saved doing so.
The Wine Room has so much to offer someone looking for a unique venue for a special occasion or for a night out with a special someone. It was cozy, intimate, and offered considerable privacy for those tables that likely wanted that. The staff that served us was knowledgeable, charming, and responsive. I had a great evening overall. But I left hungry. They do not offer meals, per se, or dessert. If you want charcuterie, you will be very happy. If you want a steak, go somewhere else.
I have loved this place since it's quiet opening and it's still my go-to for great wine and conversation.
What a hidden gem.
It seems weird to use that term for a place that is on Jasper Avenue but it is true. It is right next to Pub 1905 and in fact shares the same door. The inside is dark, by design, and resembles a wine cellar.
The wine is sold by the bottle or the ounce and the server (Kenny) well versed in the wines and helped us with our selections. We did the wine by the ounce which is the more expensive way but we weren't there to guzzle as much as we could.
The charcuterie was amazing maybe the best plate I have had. The portions seem like they will be expensive but are great value as they come with more than just the item.
All in all it is a great place for many different wines and different plates. The portions are not big but quality rains supreme.
Will be back soon!
My wife and I really enjoyed the food and service. I realize it is called the Wine Room but to not offer anything to drink other than wine was a bit of a turn off. My wife does not drink wine as it tends to give her headaches. I asked the waiter what alternatives there were and he said water. I thought he was joking, he wasn't. The place is attached to pub and I was told they have the same owner so why not make an arrangement. the pub staff was running the food for the wine room so I'm sure it wouldn't have been much trouble to work something out. Other than that it was amazing. I would recommend this place to anyone and will be back myself.
Excellent and attentive service. We enjoyed all go the corses we ordered and the wine that we choose to go with them. Having the tablet was a fun alternative to a paper menu.
Second time at The Wine Room and just as delicious as the first. Went with a girlfriend this time and we let the server choose our wines and had the chef make up a special platter for us. The charcuterie board was a work of art and soooo delicious. Thank you!
Amazing selection of meats and cheese made for a great meal. Tons of wine to sample by the ounce. We had a great experience!
Having lived in Kelowna wine and charcuterie were a standard choice for a girls night out. Edmonton is really lacking in that scene so it's wonderful to see it finally available. The price points were slightly higher than other places I frequent (eg $44 for two meat and two cheeses and decent wines averaged $3-$4/ounce). Having the ipad to explore food and drink options was great. It would be awesome to see more BC wine and maybe a sparkling wine available by the ounce. I will definitely return next time I'm in town.
Nice place, under a 'wine themed' decor. I liked it, as im a wine connoisseur this was a good start. Great selection of wines, but price point was silly for some of the older vintages. I get that a 98' Penfolds is great...$2000-3000... thats plain dumb. Thats for rubes, that are just short of brains, and not of money. All side, I'd come back with a friend (gal), and make it a starting point or night cap...
I liked this place a lot. Food is meant more for sharing. We had the escargots, which were amazing. A touch of curry gave them an updated twist. We also shared a charcuterie board, which was nicely presented. We felt the food was a bit pricey, but in line with the quality. Our only complaint was the wine. They had lots of choice, but their cheapest bottles were starting at about $60 and going upward from there quickly. It would be nice to have a few more reasonably priced options. However, if you have been searching for a place in Edmonton that sells a few bottles for over $1000 (NOT a typo) then here's your place!
Outstanding. Best new addition in Edmonton in years. Wonderful ambience. Outstanding wine list and cheese and charcuterie is excellent
We went there for our anniversary, they have a huge wine list and charcuterie so we thought we'd enjoy it. The dimly lit environment did grow on me after we'd been there a while, the gratuitous pricing for the food did not.
There are so many options, which is great, but you must browse them on an iPad that only shows 3 items at a time, which is frustrating.
We tried an 8 year old zin, which was ok. After 15 minutes in the place, we'd had enough so we went online and reserved ourselves a table at another restaurant.
