Von's Steakhouse & Oyster Bar Ratings and Reviews
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 :)
Service, mains and drinks were exlempary. The only issue I had was with the oysters, one of Von's supposed high points and one of the reasons I was looking forward to my long-awaited visit. I found them to be very small as opposed to other oyster bars I've visited. From the warm oysters Rockefeller to the fresh on-the-shell varieties, they were all tiny. While Von's may have to deal with what they are supplied with from their seafood vendor, I just wasn't very impressed. Most of the buck-a-shuck specials I've encountered have always had good sized, plump, fresh oysters that satisfy.
That said, I will definitely return as the rest of their menu and service was fantastic.
I was really excited to try Vons. It was easy to make a reservation for the 7 of us for a stag, and the overall restaurant was very pretty and had a great feel. Service was great, but ultimately the food fell short. I paid over $60 for a steak dinner, and I really don't think that I saw the value of that. Steak was a bit tough and under seasoned, sides were tasty but nothing special. Everyone there felt similarly about their steaks. I should have just ordered $60 worth of the prime rib sliders, they were the star of the show!
Hello, Dan. I enjoyed my meal and the ambience of the restaurant but I found it very expensive.
I'm born and raised in Edmonton and had been to Von's a number of years ago and it didn't seem as expensive for what you got.
Including tip $190 for two meals, one appetizer and a dozen very small oysters seems a little over the top.
This bill did not include any alcohol either except for one virgin caeser.
I can't see myself returning for that type of bill and I do make a decent income.
Great food! drinks are awesome too! I especially enjoyed the ARA white wine with my oysters, which was recommended by our server :) Great choice! It was my first time there with my friends and I'll definitely come back again-next time I will bring the husband <3
I set up a dinner for myself and son to recognized his upcoming wedding. My father did the same thing with myself prior to my wedding ~ 34 years ago when Hys Steak house was still active. I wanted to do a similar tradition with my son and local research disclosed Von's was pretty similar to the Hys restaurant I grew up with in Winnipeg and Saskatoon.
I don't normally spend $315.00 on a restaurant meal ( generally beyond my $$ budget) but this was a special occasion and it has been planned for some time. My son and I enjoyed the meal. I will be back sometime in the future with my Wife.
Food was very good, table service was excellent. Pricey but far better overall quality than you would find most places, as always seasoned and cooked to perfection.
My biggest issue was that while not even half the tables in the dining area were full all populated tables were in one small area next to each other making it feel over crowded and hard to converse over the noise. Also why have a dress code if you do not enforce it?
I haven't tried the oysters, which I expect is what makes this restaurant special. I had a steak and it was cooked good, yet not the best. I did expect better. It needed an extra spice, or just an additional flavor.
Service and atmosphere was great. Cheesecake was amazing!!
