I dont know if it was because we were a group of 8 and the tip was already built in at 18% but I felt like our service below par. Because my group and I work in the service industry I even tipped over an above what was mandated but only because the food was fantastic. I would definitely come back but would try to avoid parties of 8 if this is going to be the case where we get sub par service.

Myself and my wife went for dinner and thought it was great. The waiter was awesome, the atmosphere was great and the food was amazing. I would recommend Vons to anyone that enjoys a nice steak or just an evening out.

Haven't been at Von's for over 20 years so decided to visit again due to much positive publicity. We had reservations for the dining room but at the last minute one more person joined so we switched to the lounge where we could watch the Oilers game on the big screen TV. We were seated quickly and the waitress came to our table with the daily specials for both drinks and food. Service (by Brittney) over the course of our dinner was spot on and kudo's for having all the information at her fingertips. There's nothing worse than when wait staff needs to check with the kitchen to find out what the specials are, always be prepared.
We began with an array of fresh oysters, which the restaurant is known for. After enjoying oysters on both the west and east coasts, these disappointed us. They had a fishy taste and we found them to be very small. On the other hand the sauces had great flavor. Bacon wrapped scallops were a huge hit. We all chose a beef entree and not one of us was let down. Two of us had the prime rib which was cooked to perfection, my 10 oz portion was more than I could eat and being the end cut, even more flavorful. Served with the biggest Yorkshire pudding I've ever seen and garlic mashed. The burger was delicious served with homemade fries and homemade ketchup that should be bottled and sold. My husband had the open faced shaved prime rib sandwich. He loved it. Tirimasu and cheesecake shared all around and we were done.
We've already decided that we'd return so we can try more of the appetizers, particularly the coconut shrimp. Great service made the evening more enjoyable. Dinner and drinks for four was $220 but totally worth it. In the day and age of going out for entertainment, a plus was that Von's took care of our parking. Although the hockey game was playing on the big screen, music was still being piped into the lounge. It would have been great to hear the play by play.
We will be back!

Went for oysters. Server was knowledgeable about oysters and menus and was attentive even though had dinner party in the back. The plating was exceptional. Empty dishes were taken away in minutes. It was game night but atmosphere remained chill.

The desert was really gross and it was a set menu for New Years so we didn't have another option, also the prime rib was way undercooked from what we ordered and the lamb was not good. They were out of the oysters we wanted. And brought the wrong champagne to our table, opened and poured it so we didn't have a choice and just drank it. Everything was definitely just meh, I expected a lot more as it was my first time there and a set menu at 90$ a person, our bill was over 700$ for four and I would have rather spent that on better tasting food. Disappointed

We have alway thought Von's was great. The regular menu does not disappoint. But dinning on special nights - Christmas , New years, Valantines - they have a set menu that, pardon the cliché, KICKS IT UP A NOTCH.
Well - tonight for new years eve 2016 - Von's TOOK IT TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL.
Start with the best quality prime rib and slow roast it for 17 hours - wow wow wow. The flavor, suculent and meaty, and the crust - sugars in the meat form - just wow. But that was just the entrees.
We started with Double O oysters☆☆☆☆ Excellent choice. A Bottle of Quales Gate double smooth very dry Okanagan Rose (13.5 %)☆☆☆☆ delish.
The preset menu included a Blue Crab salad. We both ordered it. ☆☆☆☆.
I followed with Alberta Porchetta and white beans ☆☆☆☆☆. The wife had Wild Boar And Rabbit and Pistachio Terrine ☆☆☆☆☆.
And of course the prime rib (with Thumbelina carrots and Yorkshire Pudding)
(I do not exagerate.)
The preset desert was a culinary odyssey all by itself - deconstructed Black Forest Cake + -(exotic, salty, chocolaty, fruity, crunchy, with delights I loved but struggle to identify ) ☆☆☆☆☆.
We've been a little busy of late so we havn't had much high end dinning time. Dinner at Von's tonight reminded us why we like to make the time.

Great dining experience, started News Eve off on the right note. Fabulous Seafood platter , overall the 4 coarse selections were all very good, enjoyed the food very much. We will keep this restaurant in mind again for next New Year's Eve dinner for sure.

We went for a 6 pm seating in New Years Eve. The menu and wine pairings were phenomenal. The oysters were fantastic too - but they always are. I've never had a bad meal or poor service at Von's. It's always top notch. Highly recommend.

Lovely ambience, beautifully appointed tables with lovely dinner and flat wear....along with a very well prepared and plated meal.....the experience at Von's was exceptional. Can't wait for a repeat visit!! Thanks to the great serving staff and chef's!!

Consistently great food and service and a very relaxed and warm atmosphere. We enjoy the fact that Vons has not gone "all steel and glass". The older style décor is warm and inviting, and the large inglenook fireplace is an added benefit on a cold winter night. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the meals were very well presented. Vons remains one of our favourite places for a romantic meal for two, or a gathering with friends. It never ceases to impress.

An excellent evening in every which way. First time visit for our friends and they commented it was a fabulous evening. Good food, good friends, good atmosphere... love the lounge bar and a buck a shuck! Will be back again soon!

Very nice food, attentive and knowledgeable server, nice room. However there was a large and extremely noisy table in the corner with no screens, curtains or any noise abatement. This was the Saturday before Christmas when the room was full with adults having nice dinners who could not hear their conversations. We mentioned our trouble in hearing ourselves talk and the server was sympathetic and told us that this was a bachelorette party. This was no surprise to us given the amount of liquor being delivered to the table.
The manager never turned up to apologize, even when we mentioned again as we got our coats that our evening had been spoiled by the noise. We were asked when we booked whether we were celebrating a special occasion (we were-- two birthdays), so this stagette was no surprise to them. We are very disappointed that not only was the evening spoiled, but that there was no effort to apologize. Don't think we're going back.

The oysters were fresh and fabulous. The food and the service was great. However, the prime rib was not to the size we ordered. We ordered one regular and one Von's cut; however, both came and looked to be regular cuts. The server couldn't tell the difference when asked but later did say one is a Von's cut based on what was in the system of what we have ordered. Slight disappointment but the food was great.

Menu selection were excellent in the meats and fish categories, we had salmon and a lamb dish and both were excellent!! Service was very attentive but unobtrusive - excellent, friendly, discreet. The ambiance was very comfortable. Good wine list. Excellent ceasars! We certainly intend to go again!

A group of three couples have been getting together every Christmas season for about 12 years now. The first time we got together was at Von's. Since then we moved around different restaurants until we finally went back to Von's. We will be coming back here from now on. The food and wine is fantastic. The building is great with plenty of room for a party of almost any size. Parking is a bit of a chore if you get there after 6:30 on Saturday evening as the popularity of Von's and other venues in the area is quite high.

We had been to Von's a year ago and had an awesome experience. This time, not so much. The food was good, but my daughter's steak was not done correctly and the waiter never came back so she didn't eat it. It was pricey, and I wasn't overly impressed.

Lovely restaurant, nice atmosphere. The waiter was very well-versed in the menu and drinks.
LOVE the portion sizes. Just enough, not too big which is always a delight for me.
At other restaurants I usually leave half of my food on the plate due to oversized portions.

Monday night birthday dinner for husband. Sat in the oyster bar. Great oysters, great prime rib, great service. Complimentary dessert for the birthday boy. Hadn't been there for years, and am not sure why. Will be going back soon.

Went for our fifth wedding anniversary. Food was amazing. Had the bacon wrapped scallops which were very tasty and my wife's favorite part. Then we both had the steak Oscar which is our favorite. It didn't disappoint. The garlic mashed potatoes and beets were incredible and the steak and Oscar topping was mouth watering. I wish I had leftovers but I couldn't stop
