Von's Steakhouse & Oyster Bar Ratings and Reviews
My second time there and the prime ribs ...
My second time there and the prime ribs were made to perfection again. The oysters were fresh. The baked potato was a bit small, which was depressing but the stars were definitely the prime ribs and oysters.
I will definitely go there again.

It was our 29th anniversary. Never been. Our children had recommended it to us. Told us to go have fun. The waitress listened to us, we didn't want too much garlic in the food. She also recommended a great white wine. Perfect. I can't believe I ate the whole thing. Great evening. Nice touch at the end. We were offered a dessert. Would return. Definitely.

We dined at Von's for my Dad's 65th birthday. The server was amazing and the food and atmosphere were perfect for the occasion.
The only negative was that there was a very loud male server at the table next to ours at the end of the meal, for such a quite restaurant, it was an unpleasant way to end a wonderful evening.

Food overall was great ordered the mussels and seafood platter for two.
My only complaint was seating. The restaurant was not busy yet as it had just opened for service, the restaurant decided to sit 5 tables in ear shot of each other. It would have been nicer to have the tables spaced out to have more of a quiet romantic ambience.

I took my wife out for a Birthday dinner and it was an absolutely amazing experience! It was our first time there,but not our first time at a well known steakhouse. And we both agreed that it was the Best one we have been to!! Great atmosphere Great service and Great food!! Well done chef and staff we will be back again real soon Thanks!!

Overall I love Vons, However I was very disappointed that our tab for only 5 people ..two senior and a child was 600.00 and the only thing our anniversary couple received for celebrating 50yrs of marriage was a small dessert to share.. even the birthday table next to us got at least a sparkler with theirs. I would think for the price of the meal they would of at least got a dessert each!!!

This is the first time dining at Vons Steakhouse. Our meal of steak and lobster was delicious with hands down one of the best ceasar salads we have tasted with the strong garlic taste. Our girls surprised us with a gift card and we hope to someday be able to go again. What a wonderful treat! The waiter was very attentive and personable.

We were celebrating a birthday and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
We do have one suggestion - maybe a few different strengths of horseradish. One of our group found it to be very hot - too hot to eat and after having a taste could not really taste any of their food after.

We visited Von's for a family birthday function. We found, for the price of the food the quality was average. Our sirloin strip steak was a little on the tough side which was very disappointing especially when you pay high dollar for a steak. With the restaurant being only 40% full, the service was not overly good. Would I recommend this restaurant..probably not. Would I come back..not likely.

When one books a reservation at a higher end restaurant, one expects the service to be higher end. We have been to Von's before and have had exceptional service in both the lounge and in the dining room. As this was our wedding anniversary, we chose the dining room as it was less busy than the lounge. In fact, we were the only patrons in the dining room for the first 50 minutes we were there. Our waitress clearly did not know the features that night. When asked if the buck-a-shuck was still on (this was 6:10 p.m.) she stated ..."no, it was over at 6:00 p.m. It only runs from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.". When I called up Von's website on my phone, and it clearly stated 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. she said "NO". My husband said it was not worth the argument, so we placed our order. We ordered the seafood platter and a bottle of wine. We got our water, bread basket and wine. After several minutes, and emptying our water glasses, our waitress was no where to be found. Again, we were the ONLY patrons still at that point. Frustrated, my husband got up and refilled our water glasses - not once, but twice he filled them over the course of our dinner. During one of these times another couple came in. Woo hoo, maybe now we would get service - NOT! Our waitress brought our food and basically dumped it on the table. We did not see her again until she brought our "complementary desert as it was our anniversary". A complementary $10.00 desert does not make up for the crappy service. When she brought us our bill, I questioned the charge for the wine. Being half price wine Monday the expectation was to have the wine at half price. The waitress, clearly clueless, stated ... "that price is only for certain glasses of wine"... When I stated no, we have had half price BOTTLES of wine here before, she got huffy, grabbed the bill from my hand and went to the back. Several minutes later, she brought back the corrected bill with a simple "sorry". Come on Von's!

Had supper on the patio at Von's, the meal and service was great. I had no idea Von's had a patio so was pleasantly surprised when offered the option. Von's is on a very busy corner with lots of traffic on the adjacent street so it was a little noisy from the traffic but not to the point of interfering with conversation. The meal was great, if you love beef Von's is the place for you, great steaks and prime rib cooked to prefection. Our server was excellent making it a wonderful evening out.

We have to been to Von's on a few occasions now, and this last visit was by far the worst experience we have had. The dining room was pretty much empty, the service was extremely slow, and our food came out cold.

We went In Especially for the 'buck a shuck' hour and were not disappointed - the oysters were fabulous and the knowledge of the different types available that night our waitress shared was very helpful.
We stayed and ordered main courses - all of which were outstanding. From the burger to steak and the seafood platter we were quite full.
Our waitress was knowledgeable and a pleasure to have serve us.

Unfortunately, we felt very rushed. Our reservation was at 7. We were done eating 7:30!!
Our meals came out very quickly and our drinks came as our meal was being served. I had a glass of red wine, my husband had a Caesar. It would have been nice to sit back and enjoy our cocktails before our meal.
And to be very truthful our prime rib was a disappointment . It was done to our liking med. rare however we found it to be " stringy" My husband was also surprised that he had to pay extra for his baked potato....my mashed potatoes were included. We were not aware that there was an extra cost for choice of potato.
We have always looked forward to our special dinner there at Von's. I'm sorry that I have to send this review...

Our experience was outstanding. We managed a reservation on short notice, to enjoy dinner with friends who were unexpectedly in town.
We enjoyed the excellent oyster bar, and found an interesting selection of wines on their list.
The food was very well prepared, both in terms of food quality, as well as presentation.
Service staff were attentive, not intrusive; always very professional. We enjoy Von's a few times each year, and are always happy to see some familiar faces.
If you're in the Edmonton area, Von's is the ideal choice for a great steak!

Ribeye steak was great, filet and lobster had a large lobster tail, dessert was excellent.
service was fine, not pushy, not hovering, but there. We go there for very special occasions, as Von's is special. Oh, and the Denman island losters were delish.

We went for our wedding anniversary the food was fantastic but our server ignored us most of the night and was attentive to her other table that had 4 or more then ours that was just the 2 of us. It was disappointing since it's an expensive restaurant and has made it so were hesitant to go back there again.
