Von's Steakhouse & Oyster Bar Ratings and Reviews
I went on a Saturday at 6PM, and got busy right after that, so lucky me. The atmosphere was good and the server was friendly. When the restaurant got busy you could tell that the server was acting more distracted but still nothing to be concerned about. The steaks were delicious, and so were the desserts. Lovely experience, will definitely go back.
As it had been a few years since we had visited your establishment, it was nice to see that the atmosphere and the people working their are still very friendly, professional, and above all the hospitality and the meal served were outstanding. Our visit here put the cap on a very special day, our 44th wedding anniversary. Thank-You.
For our 30th anniversary dinner, we started with the aptly named "colosssal" shrimp cocktail, which was delicious. My wife had the filet oscar; the filet was fantastic, but there was a pinch extra salt in the seafood. My prime rib was perfect, accompanied by a large, tasty Yorkshire. The special cheese potato selection was offered at an extra $6 (should have been at no charge, considering the menu prices). We were treated to a complementary dessert. Service was impeccable. We will continue to frequent this great restaurant for our special occasions! Try it, and grab a table near the glorious fireplace!
We went for a nice sunday dinner with family. We enjoyed the cozy feeling of dining fireside and the service was exemplary. Our steaks were done perfectly and the vegetables were the best . Topped off with a decent wine list and dessert that was also top notch. I would definitely recommend dining here. It was not super cheap but a good value for your dollar.
Service was not up to par. It took ten minutes for our waitress to come to our table. When our drinks came, refills were rare (my wife ordered a pop). I had ordered a second drink which never came, she didn't realize until the end, so I obviously cancelled it. The waitress also spilled water on my mother-in-law's back and seat. My steak came out rare instead of medium rare, which isn't a big deal because I'm not too turned off by rare.
I have been to Von's a few times and the service always seems to be lacklustre, but the food is excellent.
Vons is our go to. We love it. Been here multiple times and nothing bad to say. Any issues arise and they are corrected instantly. My wifey even dropped a massive scallop on the floor and we were treated to 2 replacements. Go here and eat. Seriously. Hardware grill, Ruth's Chris and range road got nothing on Vons. number 1 in edmonton.
The food was absolutely amazing but our server, a blonde, mid thirties waitress was disinterested, not knowledgable (could not even recommend a wine) and slow. We waiting 20-30 minutes between drinks, with empty glasses and she admit she forgot to ring in my modification to our meal, with no discount for the mistake. Thank you to the kitchen though, the prime rib here is second to none !
It has been a while since I've been at Von's. The waiter didn't seem to consider that I was in a suit and tie and my date was in a dress- he directed us to his section in the Sports Bar lounge, rather than asking us if we might prefer the quieter dining room. Though he did honour our request to move to the dining room a few minutes after seating us. The food was reasonably good, but not worth the price in today's creative restaurant scene. Wine menu by the glass was limited and definitely a premium price- this from a guy who doesn't mind paying a premium price for good wine. The saving grace was the terrific waitress in the dining room who was attentive and efficient.
We had reservations for 7 pm. When we arrived we stood waiting for a hostess to seat us for about 10 min. We finally got seated by a waitress and ordered our drinks. Then we ordered appies and our dinner. We received our appies right away however waited for our supper for almost 2 hours. We asked our waitress for more drinks and when she came back to our table 20 min later she grabbed our empty glasses and forgot to even order us and bring us our drinks...she was like "oh yeah brb"...We asked for the manager at that time. She came back and told us her manager would bring out our food. 15 min later, manager comes out with our food. My husband asked her if she is short staffed. She replied no. My husband then asked her why it takes about 2 hours for our food to come out. The restaurant had maybe a dozen people in it. Staff were no where to be found and the bar tenders were cleaning the bar. A couple sat down next to us and when we received our supper they received there appies and dinner within 20 min. The manager did take care of our whole bill which was nice, and totally accepted fault on the situation. The food was really good but the service was ABSOLUTLY horrible.
Celebrated our 38th anniversary here with friends. Seafood platter for 2 was awesome, veggies could have been a little more cooked and greens beans were definitely not fresh. A little disappointed with the oysters rockefeller, considering it is an oyster bar-a little bland I thought-Service was awesome, fun, lively- can't remember her name off hand but her son was also working bussing tables.
We had a previous office Christmas party here and the food was fantastic so we decided to come back for mum's 60th birthday. The server we had was extremely friendly and helpful, allowing me to order the kid's food first while the rest of the adults were still enjoying drinks and appetizers. The food was exceptional as always and all in all a great experience.
Overall service by our waitress was great. She did an amazing job. I am a regular and have booked in the past. Before and service has always been great. But I did not feel valued by the manager over the phone when I was booking the private room. I felt like I was doubted when i booked and question multiple times the day of occasion of how many people will I have coming and was told I'll get charged for 35 each for an adult that doesn't show up. I understand an area seats a certain amount of people but I do not agree the extra charges if someone does not show up. Things happen and change last minit. Somethings we cannot control. I would recommend that policy gets over looked or changed for that matter. At the end the day people spend a lot of money eating there and it's not cheap. Overall good place to eat.
My wife and I went for Dinner at Von's for our Wedding Anniversary. And it was an amazing experience Service was Good and the Food Outstanding! Oh and the Deserts were very good as well. We are looking forward on returning very soon!! Thanks a lot staff at Von's for making our Anniversary Dinner very Memorable :)
