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 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.

We have been here multiple times now, and it has been great every time! Especially in service! Our usual server is Diane and we love her, but Ican honestly say that no matter who has helped us it has always been great
The goat cheese fillet is amazing, I highly recommend it!

My husband nor I had ever been to Von's, so we decided to go there to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. I took advantage of the Oyster special that they had running and I was not disappointed. However at the end of the night our server offered us a complimentary dessert as it was our anniversary, but she quickly returned to our table to inform us we were not eligible since I took advantage of the "Buck a Shuck". We were both shocked considering we had just spent over $200 on the bill and they would not comp us a tiny dessert (as described by our server) since we took advantage of a special that they have running daily.
We have been here a couple of times and ...
We have been here a couple of times and enjoyed it very much! However, this trip was not so good. Not sure what was happening in the kitchen but neither of our steak was cooked at all close to what we had ordered. I told the waitress she checked her notes and said she would take it back which she did. Second time was not much better I could not finish it:-( Disappointing meal.

Excellent choice. Awesome food. Great wait staff. Only downfall was they put us upstairs and the atmosphere was non existant. Kind of pricey too but we knew that going in. I would go back. Id recommend this restaurant
For those who enjoy a warm traditional atmosphere.
It is always great to return to Von's, where we can guarantee receiving excellent service and great food, served in a warm and friendly atmosphere . My filet mignon was cooked to protection. The vegetables were amazing, and the chef catered to my request to substitute the potatoe for an extra vegetable. My husband and our guests all chose the Arctic char special, and all enjoyed their selection. From appetizers to desserts everything was first class. Good wine list and reasonable pricing.
Service sub standard
For a restaurant of this quality the service was sub standard. Our waitress was unenthused, almost standoffish. Everyone in our party had a drink to start however, when our server asked us if we wanted another round of drinks they never showed up. She brought a dessert for the special location at our table which was a 40th wedding anniversary. However, no one else at the table was offered dessert. I had to go find her and ask her for a dessert menu and coffee. Our waitress was just very unengaged.
Excellent Dining Experience!
We went to Von's Steakhouse and Oyster Bar on May 28th to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was perfect, great service, wonderful food, romantic atmosphere. The perfect setting for this special occasion. Loved all of the food, especially the Caesar salad, those anchovies are tasty! Thanks for a wonderful experience!
Once was good for me
I've always been interested in trying Von's. I was disappointed with the value for what you got. The quality of food for the price point is something I'd expect more for. Our table ordered two creme brule's and neither party ate theirs due to the poor quality.
The atmosphere was good and the service was excellent though. The extra $20+ for three hours for parking if you can't get into their lot was also another disappointment.
Edmonton has a lot of choices when it comes to food and upscale dining. This will not be one of them for me again, unless the food is better, or the prices match what you're getting.
A little more upscale than my wife and I usually go for, but it was our anniversary so we wanted somewhere nice. The atmosphere at Von's was very nice. The waiter was professional, attentive, and friendly without being the least bit overbearing. We aren't oyster fans but enjoyed a really good steak and crab legs. Overall, a very nice experience.
Let me start by saying on previous occas ...
Let me start by saying on previous occasions, we have had outstanding meals and service at Von's. Unfortunately this was not the case on this visit.
My husband ordered the oyster crab appetizer. It was cold and the waiter did take it off the bill.
We ordered the regular prime rib and the Von's cut prime rib as main courses with potatoes and vegetables. They also arrived cold. The waiter replaced the meals and they were good but we were discouraged by now and kind of ruined the evening.
We assume there was an issue with the kitchen and server.
As a high end pricey restaurant, we expected a much higher level of dining experience.
We will probably not visit Von's again any time soon, based on this experience.
fabulous meal and service at Von's
Recently went to Von's to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday party. There were eight of us. Wine list supurb. All of us enjoyed 4 dozen oysters. Then had great selection of apptzrs. and all eight entrees were great Our waiter was very courteous and attentative. Total the bill was around $1100.00 for the night. Good value at just over $125.000 per person
