    We ordered drinks and dessert on the patio. While the view and ambience was beautiful. The service was very slow and the desserts were mediocre.the espresso martini dessert for 16 dollars tasted like premade chocolate pudding and my white wine was warm.

    Don't know if they were too busy. We normally don't complain about food. 3 of the 4 side plates we received were dirty. We stopped asking. Food was not great. Fries were not good, first salad was old and was sent back. Ambiance was nice on patio and they had fans with a cooling mist. The grounds were not maintained well. We unfortunately won't return.

    I had guests visiting from out of the country and thought this would be the perfect spot for lunch. The weather was perfect which allowed for great views. The patio was covered and fans were on which made it very comfortable as it was a hot day. Our server was wonderful in her suggestions and checking in. Her drink suggestions hit the spot. I will mention the chairs and cushions were stained and I wasn’t sure I wanted to sit in them

    It was my birthday, I noted it when I reserved the table, but no one paid attention to it. upon arrival we were given the first empty table on the walkway, although there were tables marked "booked" in a nicer area. we were seated on a dirty table and chairs. The waiter cleaned everything up and was attentive. The forks and knives were stained and streaked with water. The floor in the establishment was dirty. Very beautiful place, with a amazing view, delicious food, but the service is not up to par

    What a warm and inviting room with comfortable furniture and a quiet area for conversations. Our server was excellent, friendly and attentive. As previous employees from the 70's we shared the history of the Mcdonald that we knew to add to her information. Definately an enjoyable lunch. Thank you.

    We went for dinner and drinks - first off, it’s a gorgeous, huge patio with some of the best views. So if you’re looking for one of the very best patios in YEG, this is it. The service was great. Our server was professional, kind and on top of it. The drinks (well very pricey) are always good. However, the food was honestly terrible. One of the worst restaurant meals I’ve had. The quality is not what you would expect from the Fairmont. Very basic and way too expensive for what you get. My $43 salad (with chicken) was the least exciting thing I’ve eaten. And the brisket was a tiny portion with what tasted like Kraft bbq sauce. Such a disappointment. I would definitely skip eating there but would highly recommend for the view, a drink and the service.

    Took a long time to get service while others sat down after us and were served. The brisket on the sandwich was sliced very thin and was dried out with a spicer than expected sauce so you couldn’t taste the meat. The view was nice though.

    What an exceptional afternoon on Edmonton’s best patio! What a beautiful river valley view while sipping the BEST margaritas. The salt and pepper wings are back after a winter hiatus and are as delicious as ever. The tacos were superb. Thanks so much to Gwen, Carmen, Hailey, and Johnathon for making perfect. See you regularly this summer.
