This place has received very good reviews, we recommend visiting them. Sure they’ll give you a very great service.
We had a great time at Vons. First time there and pleasantly surprised. It's an old building but it's nice inside. It's cool how there are different areas and there is an upstairs, too. We loved all our food and I even enjoyed the oysters although I'm not usually into oysters. Great service and great food! A very good experience.
Portions are quite generous. Ordered the prime rib. Buck-a-shuck was good deal, make sure you order it in the lounge and not dining area (different price point, we didn't know but they honored it.)
Our server Alan was very attentive, friendly and personable. As an out of town guest, Vons made us feel very welcomed. Will definitely come back next time we visit Edmonton!
Buck-a-shuck Oysters were flavourful and tasty. Ordered half a dozen of everything on the menu. Biggest drawback was the shells in the oyster. Would've been 5 stars if not for the shells. Would reccomend cycling through the oysters as you eat them. Brings out the flavor really nicely!
The waiter did bring us two more oysters to make up for the shell fragmentation. Hope the chefs can get better at shucking.
Top 3 oysters by rank
1. Kushi - really nice Umatilla flavourful with deep hints of ocean
2. Torpedo bay
Honorable mention. Pink moon -- at the time we went they were the biggest.
Prime rib was cooked perfectly and even throughout! Liked the extra seasoning they put on the veggies. Complimented the demi glaze on the steak nicely.
Celebrated our anniversary here upon the recommendation of family.
Very tasty food and beautiful presentation. The creme brulee was the best I've ever had!
Our waitress was very attentive to ensure our drinks were topped up, and there was only a minimal wait for our meals.
The only reason I did not give a full 5 stars was due to my steak arriving as medium rare instead of medium. Not a big issue, but a little bit redder than I prefer.
A very enjoyable meal, and the extra effort to celebrate our anniversary was appreciated!
The service was great! The food was great and I loved the vibe of the restaurant. If you just want an evening out with some good food (without breaking the bank), then this is a great place! I had the New York Sirloin and my partner had the burger. The burger was suprisingly really good, juicy, flavorful, etc.
Had a staff event here for our Christmas Party. The service was very cheerful and accommodating. The food was really good quality and came out nicely presented. When a drink was not made up to standard the staff quickly had a new one made. I would definitely be back for future meals. The price reflects the high quality of the food and service.
Very nice place with elegant decor. Had some specials and they were all very delicious. Steak tart tart is my personal favourite. Thanks to the lovely server Thida’s suggestion. Steak was so tender and very well seasoned. Oysters was on special paired with a glass oh white for $25.00. Really good deal, even they are a little bit small, hey! $25 bucks they are amazing for $25!! Highly recommend this place for a friend gathering. Thanks to the owner, an very welcoming Indian lady, to bring great food to the city.

We had our Christmas party dinner at Von's. It was an absolutely amazing evening. The food and service was outstanding. We were checked in upon entry to ensure we were all fully vaccinated, it was quick and smooth, great job! Our server Alan and manager Taran made sure we understood the menu and took very good care of us. Their attention to our section was impeccable. 👏 Highly recommending this place for a big and small groups.
My boyfriend and I had a fabulous dinner experience at Vons last night! From service (Sanjay and I think maybe the owner? or manager? helping), to food - drinks, appetizers and dinner, to the atmosphere. All amazing! Special shout out the chefs that prepared it all! We left overstuffed and oversatisfied :) We will be back!
The salmon was excellent and I enjoyed the French onion soup as well. Rebecca was a cheerful server who did her best to make one feel comfortable.
To be honest, the steak could have been better.
I don’t know why people are saying it is over priced for quality. You pay for the service, food, and atmosphere and it is a steal for what you get! I had an amazing night with exceptional service. Alan our server was top notch we couldn’t have asked for better service, the manager was super friendly and the bartender was very attentive. We had a superb time and will definitely be back!
Always a good meal here. My steak was seasoned perfectly. Our waiter might have been new but he tried his best. Just usually one step behind.
We were able to have my husband's birthday dinner with some of our closest friends at Vons recently. We had such a good experience. The food was delicious, and the staff were all kind and hospitable. Will definitely be coming back.
Went to Von’s for a birthday dinner tonight. It’s been a few years since I’ve been in the restaurant. Had a filet mignon with truffle Mac and cheese. The fillet mignon was a well seasoned, perfectly cooked piece of perfection! The truffle Mac and cheese was indulgent. So good! Our party tried several different drinks. The smoked old fashioned was a clear winner. Would definitely recommend!
Place to be! Drinks, appetizers and main courses all amazing. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Our server Alan was great, and manager Taran did fantastic job organizing our Christmas party dinner. Big thank you! We will be back!
It was a little chilly but I got a heater for the table. The Prime Rib was some of the best I ever had! The meat was so succulent and juicy and it was seasoned perfectly. The Au jou that it came in was gorgeous, and they had a homemade horse radish that was sharp and spicy. My server, Louis, was extremely knowledgeable of the massive wine menu they have and recommended a full bodied Vallipolicella that paired brilliantly with the Prime Rib. A truly decadent experience I hope to enjoy again in the not-too-distant future!!!
My boyfriend and I had a Christmas Eve dinner last night here at Von's. We wanted oyster and steak so this was our choice. Our first time here and first time trying Albertan beef as we just moved here from Nova Scotia. The oysters were ok. We ordered 6 different kinds one for each of us. 2 of them were good the other 4 were just too salty but we chose the wrong ones, I guess. The horseradish is nice but the other red sauce was too ketchupey for me and another type of sauce would be nice like a wine vinaigrette sauce or something. I ordered the surf and turf and my boyfriend has a rib eye with truffle fries. They were cooked rare as we requested and the rib eye was so full of fat and great flavor!! The vegetables were fresh and nicely seasoned though I wasn't too fond of the Cajun seasoning. The truffle fries were great! The food was all great but pretty salty even for a salt lover like me. Maybe calm down on the salt especially the lobster tail on my surf and turf. Too salty. We also had a Caesar salad which was great with deep fried capers I think. Which were an awesome touch. Overall we had a great dinner and Sanjay provided great service!! We will be back! Thank you
Update: We went back and really glad we did. Every place has a bad day. They made up for it...big time! Our meal and service was right back to the standards and experience I knew and loved. Well done and thank you!!
Original: I haven't been to Von's in years and always had great service and food - so it was a natural suggestion when a friend from out of town wanted some seafood & steak. I struggled to give it a 2 star rating.
For $250 for 3, we had substandard service all the evening. Settings of side plates and cutlery for 2, the waiter poured the wine and then decanted the reasoning 3.5 ounces, 2 of our steaks and veggies were stone cold, but the waiter only offer to replace the lady's steak and didn't bring back half of her lobster. The comedy or errors abounds. No apology or discount. Nothing. Admittedly, I'm embarrassed to have suggested it.
Pretty disappointed, not worth the cost.
Welcome staff was super helpful and accommodating.
They had heat issues so had converted their banquet room for dining and gave our group comfort options.
Once the food was ordered it came out hot timely.
Steak Oscar, prime rib and sides was reported to be very good - steak quality was ok.
Bacon wrapped scallops were excellent.
Low lights 👎🏽
Service was mediocre at best. Slow to get drinks, unable/willing to make recommendations, could not/would not explain what oysters were on the plates, never came back to the table after food was delivered and we were not able to bring forward the quality issues or questions we encountered.
$ Cost - much higher quality expectations for the menu prices
4 Steaks ordered and mostly cooked per order however one underdone and the server never returned for that to be addressed.
Cauliflower appetizer was priced well but heavily breaded and fried
The salmon dish was the biggest disappointment … it was cooked beautifully but tasteless except for the tomato confit. The bean ragout and entire dish was terrible because it was swimming in a broken butter sauce. Butter and oil only with a bit of curry. The spinach and fish was tasteless and this dish was a fail. Had the server returned or noticed what was left on my plate I could have addressed the need for salt, pepper and citrus to improve it.
The service was the biggest gap that could have saved this experience for me to return again. If you have Oyster Bar in your name I would expect service to be able to speak to it even if the don’t eat it. To be fair, we did not raise our concerns directly as we were already finished so when our server requested that we complete a google review I decided to share. If I ever return, it will only be for oysters in the lounge as we had had good experiences there in the past.
Went to friend’s wedding during COVID(everyone got the test result before they go), the set up was nice, the server was good. The portion was huge, don’t even think to finish them if you are girl. Nice place to go if you are dating with someone you care about.
We recently went to Vons and tried oysters for the first time ever! They had such a great selection and they were all so fresh and tasted amazing! Our server Allan was so entertaining, and made the evening with my parent so special. Highly recommend eating here!
Though the place is having heating issues which they are working on. The staff Went above and beyond to make our experience memorable.
Our waitress Rebecca was so full of life attentive and knew the food inside out .Her recommendations were right at spot .
I love this place
Went to vons to celebrate by 10 anverssery.
The welcoming staff was sweet and accommodating.
Even Bartender visited our table to chat about drinks .The flower infused gin was really smooth .
The prime rib was juicy and cooked to perfection The complimentary cheese cake was perfect to close our dinner
Hospitality was way above any Oyster bars
Perfect place for a romantic diner. Warm ambiance with very good service. Wine card offers very good choices. Prime rib was excellent!
It was my wife's birthday and she really enjoys Von's. It was imperative we went there. This was a big day and it had to be as perfect as possible. However, covid was doing it's part to ruin the day. I booked a reservation, patios only, and in mid April you don't know what the weather is going to do. We arrived and were greeted with smiles and friendliness and escorted to the patio where there were partially enclosed gazebos with heaters in them set up. PERFECT!!! Out of the elements but still following rules. The outdoor table was set so elegeantly! The staff were delightful! Friendly, attentive, just enough, for a wonderful evening. The service was impeccable! The food was perfectly prepare and delicious! Hot, even under these conditions. The owner made a point of visiting our table as well as the other guests. A complimentary drink for us on this occasion, was a very nice touch. Go here if you want to be treated right!! It was a perfect night and a super way to start a new decade!! Thank you to all at Von's!! You are the best!!!
Celebrate a friend’s birthday here
Very nice food!
Excellent Fare. Great Location. Really enjoyed the ambiance - the staff was friendly yet never imposing.
Top quality steak and exceptional seafood!
Impressed with the COVIDiquette, and the ability to deliver a great dining experience, with all things being as they are...
Bar is well stocked and there is a decent collection of brews, complimentary to the dishes served.
Thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience; you will be seeing me again!
My husband and I enjoyed a dinner on Saturday there. My husband had the Pasta and loved it, and I had the steak. We were very pleased with our meal and even the dessert which was Creme Brulee ( loved it). Our waiter Alan even had time to have a conversation about food and how to make Creme Brulee at home . We were greeted by the management on the way out and defiantly see ourselves going there again.
Great atmosphere.great food and great service. The Steak oscar was perfection. Rebecca was very attentive and made sure we were taken care of. Yhe creme brulee Rebecca suggested wes fantastic and the candle she add was very thoughtful. Thank you Rebecca and Vons staff for making our Anniversary date a success!!!
Usually go there on special occasions and they make it all worth it. Very well managed and good service!! A restaurant that actually cares.
The food was amazing: wagyu carpaccio, escargot, the soup du jour, creme brulee, and chocolate mousse cake. It was a girls night out and we shared the applies family style. Will definitely be going back. The menu has a wonderful selection. If you like seafood, Von's is the place to go. Love that the Chef came over to our table on multiple occasions to check in on us and make sure we were enjoying the food. The creme brulee is absolutely perfect. Crisp, light, and absolutely delicious!
Rebecca did a wonderful job for service at our dinner! She provided excellent service and ensured we were doing good throughout the night. If you are reading this, you have to try out Vons, espeically the steak, it was amazing!
Due to some issues in the dining room with heat we were put in the lounge area in a booth. I think this took away from the overall experience and thought we could have at least been offered something as compensation. Food was good but not memorable for the price
The manager and staff catered to our every need for a larger Birthday group. The food delicious, had the muscles, Salmon, and the creme Brule. Cocktails again amazing, had whiskey sour. Thank you Louie!!
Had a lovely meal here! Our server, Louie, was fast, attentive and polite. He made great recommendations for us and checked in on us frequently. Everything went smoothly and was very satisfying.
Becca is amazing Server. I'm a picky eater so she designed my meal perfectly. Was enjoyable conversation. Definitely will come back for her
I previously gave Vons 5 stars 6 months ago. Yesterday I was excited to experience Vons with my significant other for my birthday. The service has definitely changed within the past 6 months. They were out of everything we wanted. I get that sometimes you run out of the dollar oysters, but it was more than that. They also didn't have a few drinks on the menu. We really just went there for Sunday dollar oysters. We ended up getting a few oysters because someone else didn't want it. It took 45 minutes to serve the oysters. On top of that I wanted more sauce. The server gave us a dirty bowl, which had sauce caked on from previous use. There was also a mix up with the drinks...which took 20 minutes to get. The appetizer was the escargot. It was delicious. But that took almost an hour to get. We also ordered the oscar steak. It came with a 6oz steak, scallops, shrimp, crab meat, mash potatoes, vegetables and a cream sauce. I believe the manager came and served us our main dish. There wasn't much of an introduction. He didn't apologize for the many hiccups we endured. I just felt that he didn't care about the quality of service. Trust me when I say that there were many moments when we wanted to leave, but we were starving and nothing else was open anymore. Although the food is amazing there, it is obvious that Vons needs to step up their game starting with their service. Our server did try her best, but I think she was so flustered with what was happening that she kept screwing up. I believe it all starts with management.
Man our server Rebecca was different, everything came out exquisite. I will definitely come back to Von’s, big thumbs up.
Service: Came here on a Sunday evening and it took a little while for us to get seated. We were standing at the door for a good 5-10 minutes before we even saw anyone. After we were seated thou everything was fine. Our server was very friendly and we were very well taken care of. Waters and drinks were always full and we were given a good amount of attention.
Atmosphere: The dining room was very nice, very intimate cozy setting. We were going to be seated closer to the door but we asked to sit farther in which I'm really glad we did because it was a lot more quite and good for conversations. The decor was very elegant and the place is well maintained.
Food: Food was fairly good. The Elk special I was told would be cooked to a med rare but came out more on the rare side but that was ok with me. I really enjoyed how the Brussel sprouts were done and there was a lot of good flavors. The key lime pie thou was a little bit of a disappointment as it wasn't as tart or tangy as I would expect from a key lime desert.
I had the best experience ever so welcoming I’m going to recommend to all my friends and family and ask for Rebecca she was an amazing server for our large party
We were at the restaurant tonight and our server was Rebecca. She was amazing and funny. Food was delicious. We had a blast!
Rebecca was great! Definitely recommend Vons for a night out, the place was accommodating and hospitable. Thanks again!
The lamb was tasty... the sides were very good too. The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly. The prices are premium, but our experience was proportionally richer as well. I loved it there.
Great food and great service! This is the place to come for oysters! Our server Rebecca is a pro and knows the menu inside and out. Highly recommend it.
Amazing staff 🥰fresh delicious 🤗food i have been coming here for years. I leave everytime with a smile on face. My absolute favorite place to enjoy a good meal, and the best of all is there wonderful selection of oysters 🦪🦪🦪🦪🦪 and staff 😋 😀
An amazing meal at Vons. The staff were friendly, the executive chef came out to say hi and to check on our meal. They kitchen mixed up one of the sides, which was okay after confirming it met our dietary needs.
The steaks were done to perfection. We ordered the bacon scallops starter, which was good. Maybe a little over done. But the shrimp and scallops skewer topper I had was cooked perfectly.
The seasoning on the veg and potatoes was so tasty for both our meals. Especially the peppercorn gravy.
But the star was definitely the New York striploins. Delicious!
My only other critique is that they can maybe work on plating of the steak to make the meal a little more visual.
Normally we love our experience but our last visit was a little disappointing. Our server didn't have much knowledge about the oysters, the music was strange for fine dining and our meals were not what we were accustomed to at this restaurant.
My wonderful girlfriend surprised me with a surprise dinner here. Best experience I've ever had. Highly recommended.
Becca is always cheerful, very attentive and overall delivers a great dining experience making us feel welcome whenever she serves us.
We've been living outside of Edmonton for the past 4 years. Before we moved, Von's was our favorite restaurant. We were excited to revisit it for a celebratory dinner last week, but quickly realized things have changed.
The buck a shuck oysters were much smaller than before and the Cocktails weren't made with the same care as we remembered (maple bacon garnish just thrown in my Caesar). I ordered a ribeye steak medium rare and received it just under rare with tons of fat that hadn't cooked properly. Vegetables were overcooked and the skewer of seafood I added was tiny and overcooked. Overall, the standards just aren't what they used to be. Had to send dessert back as beneath the sugar crust, the creme brulee was runny.
I've definitely had much better meals at the $300 price point...we're sad that we have to adjust our list of favorite places to dine now that we back living in Edmonton again.
Completely amazed by the taste of the food and the friendly staff. My favorite dish was the 14oz rib-eye and the lava cake.
When to Vons for the Christmas party with my family and friends
The food was amazing and we got all the attention
The server was knowledgeable and very polite
I've gone multiple times for buck-a-shuck on Sundays and it has always been a good experience. Unfortunately on our most recent visit the price had gone up to $1.50-a-shuck, but it's still worth it. Bacon wrapped scallops and fresh mussels are also really good.
Food was amazing, service even better. Our waiter Alan went above and beyond. Definitely one of my go-to steakhouses.
Walked in tonight to celebrate my husband's new job and we were seated at the bar as it was very busy. The service was absolutely exceptional! It was our first time having steak since finding out I'm pregnant and the waitress
Rebecca was very knowledgeable on what to recommend for that. We even got a free dessert. Best service ever! Thank you so much for a great night!
Really enjoyed the food.Quality was outstanding .My family enjoyed the wagyu salad .
If, like me, you are stranded in Edmonton; Consider Vons! Food, atmosphere, music, and staff are all a win. That being said it is a steakhouse, so may not be something a vegetarian would appreciate (they do have vegetarian options). Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald just entertained me through the two amazing items you see below. Thank you very much Vons.
We went there to have just a nice steak dinner and of course they completely knocked it out of the park! Good service great food great atmosphere. Rebecca was our server and she was awesome!
Just had dinner here and it was delicious. This is a great place for steaks and sea food. Highly recommend it.
Great for game night brawls with a touch of sophistication 😜. The Oysters are shucked slightly better now, less shards and the selection and quality has greatly improved. Sad to see "buck a shuck" go, but what can you do? Bookmark Vons, it's a gem.
Great food with abundant choices..... very good service as well, perfect place to socialize with dining experience.
We had a nice dinner with my friends earlier, it is totally different from the reviews that I normally red for the past days. Their food is tasty and I admit I liked their dessert. Staffs are attentive to us because most probably there are few guest so we are served perfectly. Special thanks to Sanny for being so friendly and making our food nicely done. Salads were really tasty, food was served quickly and a nice spot with a good ambiance of restaubar. Worth the money that we paid, than other expensive steak house in town.
The food was good, had to send back my wife's medium rare steak as it was well done, but they were great about getting a whole new dish out in minutes.
Wing Sum Wong
Definitely my favourite place for filet mignon steak and love their varieties of oysters
The Sunday oyster special all day is worth it. The selection is larger than others. The escargot is super cheesy so if that's your thing then it's good.
CV19 lock-down subsiding, we wanted a Valentines Day in a new place and Vons was a decent choice with very good food and lovely service. During service we had a minor complaint and it was taken care of immediately with two fresh plates that were done to perfection. We had seafood and I started with a dozen oysters that were fantastic - seafood in Edmonton is often a toss up, but they did it well here. The casual atmosphere lends itself to a both a business dinner and casual group, I'd feel comfortable in a suit or as dressed yesterday in jeans and dinner jacket. The configuration seems currently controlled by the need for distancing, and both my wife and I felt comfortable with Vons service protections. Thanks to the serving staff and Mido for making it memorable and especially ensuring it was done right! Going to try the Tomahawk next time!
Amazing restaurant. Fast service. Good is so good. The manager is very helpful and accommodating. I highly recommended for anyone looking for a night out.
Th steak and shrimp was amazing, mix of flavors are great and done to perfection. Desert was so delicious. I’ll give them 11 out of 10 for food and service.
This place is great. I had oysters, carpaccio and the surf and turf and lava cake. Honestly, everything was amazing. Steak was perfectly cooked and one of the best Ive had in my life. Anand, our server, was great. He kept our drinks topped up and was friendly and attentive. This is the second time Ive been here and it was a great experience again. I would recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be back when I visit Edmonton.
Like it always has been, this is still one of the best prime ribs in town. Cooked to quite the tenderness that most will enjoy. Portions are generous with a good assortment of sides. During our COVID-19 visit, their Sunday also featured buck-a-shuck oysters. For those special occasions, I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Now, having had some of the best prime rib elsewhere, there are a few things they could improve on. The Yorkshire pudding needs to be much more fluffy and tender; it gets hard and dry very quickly. The restaurant is missing a good opportunity to use this item as an attraction. Another thing is their mushroom peppercorn sauce; I would recommend skipping it because it becomes jelly like so quickly in its plastic bowl.
Lastly, to finish off on a good note, their mashed potatoes are fantastic. While I would definitely come back again (which I have many times), I wish that they would improve a little on the items I noted. I most come here only for their prime rib and oysters.

We ordered the oysters and tuna tartare, it was very good. For our mains we ordered surf and turf and Oscar. The one steak was over done and they generously remade the entire plate and our server Rebecca was really nice and great with everything. Mido who was manager provided exceptional service and was very polite about the situation. We loved our experience and will be coming back!!
Very Pricey, the entrance has an interesting smell.... fishy.... but the food is delicious, portions are good, nice atmosphere etc good service. Not much else to say, the prime rib with the Yorkshire pudding looks really good in the review with the picture even though I haven’t had it
It was our first time here. Have been to couple steak houses but this one by far the BEST one!! The staff were amazing, especially Thida. She was such a very nice and polite lady to us. Everything was perfect from appetizer to the main meals. Will definitely come back again.
I absolutely love Vons. They provide consistently positive customer service and delicious food. Anytime I have visited Vons, I've always felt welcomed and been treated amazingly. These are the reasons I come back. Keep up the excellent work! I'll be back! Creme brulee is amazing
One steakhouse in the city....with awesome service! Love the romantically quaint & cozy atmoshere
Got engaged in the lounge in 2015....perfection
Fantastic evening!! Though it wasn't on the menu. The management and chef accommodated our request for wagyu steak and a seafood platter. And...surprising very reasonably priced. It was as amazing as it looks in the photo I shared. I would honestly have given them 6 Stars...if it were possible.
Had a wonderful time here for an anniversary dinner. Our waitress was highly attentive, food was delicious (especially the mushroom bake Neptune) all the way through, and we were treated with a complimentary dessert to cap off our special night. Highly recommend!
We ordered take out on their website for a special occasion dinner and had to wait ~40min past the promised time before the food was ready. There were lots of patrons smoking right outside the door which made the waiting unpleasent. Please adjust the pick up times on your website to reflect the true time. We would have gladly showed up later to pick up the order. We ordered the prime rib dinner which was good but the Yorkshire puddings were dry. We also ordered a salad with no dairy but there was feta cheese sprinkled on it. More gravy would also be nice since we paid extra for it.
Service and food was excellent! I've lived in Edmonton for years and this was my first time at Vons. Would I recommend Vons? Absolutely! Will I be going back? Most definitely! You won't be disappointed!
Came first time and literally likes the service and atmosphere. Vons SteakHouse is serving from 4:30 pm until 11pm. Nice and quite ambiance. Had outstanding service from the lady server, sorry forgot her name. She was a great guide for my recent visit.
Awesome food and Becka our waitress was charming and delightful.
Rebecca was amazing and unreal ! The food was good too
My first experience with Vons was great even those it’s busy it’s understandable that the food is taking long. But over all everything turns out great. I enjoy my meal , it was delicious. Thank you to the server who take really good care of me. Definitely Will come back.
We are couple for a lovely dinner last feb 14, Yulitza was great and helpful 👍🏼Food was great, well done !
It was all down to Mido, he is the most engaging, attentive and friendly manager. That was my first time in that restaurant, to be honest it wasn’t my choice to eat there but my partner. However, I would 100% come back and dine there because of their staffs.
Von's is a gem to you.
Very good place to share and the Best Shirley temple ever🍹🍹
The food and service were fantastic, the wait staff was friendly and tentative. And the manager Mido was super friendly and accommodating. Definitely worth a look if you're looking to take your girlfriend on a date or just to have a nice dinner.
My husband really enjoyed his meal- steak cooked exactly how he liked it (med-well) and the sides were great. My steak came out med-well instead of rare, but they quickly re did the steak. I feel like the steak was over done because it was super thin- not what I expected in a NY Strip, and a thin steak is really easy to overcook.
Our waiter was excellent in handling the issue, and overall service was excellent, and the decor was good. I just wish the quality of the meat was higher, especially for the price paid.
As always it has been an amazing night for me and my wife. We had an amazing food. I know they just started due to lockdown but they hit the balls for the measure's of covid-19 protocol. Will recommend to other friends.
Very upscale restaurant and atmosphere. Our waiter, Chris, was very polite. The food was good -- the steaks were well worth the price, the seafood pasta was good, the burgers and fries were average. They played the stereotypical elevator/fancy music, but we liked it. The wait time for our food (a table of 6) was average. Overall, a good experience but missing something.
The food was absolutely amazing & the service was even better. We were served by anand, the happiest waiter ever! He was always ready to serve and did so with a smile. Will definitely be returning again!
I got the surf and turf which came with steak and lobster! Original plan was to go for the buck-a-shuck, but poor planning on me regarding the times for said special. Otherwise, the potato balls (?) were scrumptious! Just lost a star because the pricing was a bit too high for my liking, and although our service was great, she could have provided more information about the menu and knowledge of the dishes.
Our server Sanjay was great & our muscles were delicious!
Excellent place! it is my first time to dine in Von's and somewhat I like it. Foods are quite a top notch! value for your money is worth it plus a good service from the staffs. :) :) :)
You know no matter how many times you are here, you will always be surprised by their warm service. And it’s been one year since last time here, everything’s fresh still. We had really good time here!
Maple Country Choi
Food was just okay. Drinks came later than steaks. Music was cutting out like old radio station.
The food was beyond amazing. I enjoyed every single bite. The service was also great which is always a plus.
In the past we had excellent experiences at Vons. In comparison our most recent visit was disappointing. Service was neglectful. At least twice members of our party had to go in search of our waiter for small items - drinks that had not arrived at the table; another bottle of wine. There was a significant gap between service of the first appetizer and the others. The prime rib was impressive. The ribeye steak a touch too salty. And one of the orders was wrong. I believe the problem was inexperience and not incompetency... we'll likely return but it'll be a little while.
It was a celebration for me and my partner for Valentine's. I had a mishap with the food order that I received as they deliver to me a bit cold food. Thanks to the Manager Mido for resolving in immediately, we understand they are busy but they still managed to do something on my complain.
It was a nice place, but the interior needs some repairs and upkeep. There were huge tears in the leather booth seats, it was very dark and dreary, seemed run down. However, the food was excellent! Loved the surf and turf, best steak ever!!!!
Amazing ! I always come whenever I am treating myself. The service, tantalizing east coast oysters, indulgent steak Oscar, or just the wine selection always happy with my experience. Any issues have been met with tact and quality service. Safe and clean covid procedures. 10/10 .
Suggestions buck a shuck. Wed-day 430/630 and Sunday’s all day.. get the four sauce minenet omfg good .
The food is overall good. My bf and I ordered our food,our oysters came first then we decided to leave the restuarant because we wanted to smoke our g pen. As we were leaving the door, a girl host greeted us goodbye, but then told her we were coming back. We came back in, all the staff seemed like they were really relieved to see me and my boyfriend that we came back. I saw one of the supervisors rubbing our server's back to comfort her about us coming back and not doing 'dine and dash'. And all the staff were crowding in the front looked at both of us. We went back to our table and the girl host came to our table and asked us if we had a reservation today.. I found that really odd as she should know because she was the one that called me to confirm my reservation and greeted me and checked off my name on the list. Therefore she asked for my name and time, as in she was going to put a note under my name saying I was attempting a 'dine and dash'. They should not have assumptions about us doing the "dine and dash* so quickly.. My boyfriend and I wore semi formal. I was displeased on how they thought about us. I know there could be people who will do 'dine and dash' but not this type of restaurant I wouldn't think people will attempt to do it.. Overall I'm still disappointed.
The service the food the people it's an experience unmatched by any other restaurant thanks guys

This classic steakhouse is consistently satisfying. A group of us went for a team dinner , and we were impressed with quality of the food. We sat in the dining room our server Chris was attentive but not over bearing and let us enjoy our time there. We found out they have private rooms for larger groups, and we will most likely make this our birthday spot from now on. :D
First and foremost the food was excellent. Everyone in our party had a different dish and each was excellent, tasty, and well prepared.
The service was top notch and the restaurant has a great feel. Not so formal as to be uppity or stifling, not so casual as to be off putting. Just a nice, calm place with a relaxing atmosphere that invites enjoyable conversation with your dinner companions.
Room, beautiful. Staff, helpful, friendly and polite. We both had steak, it tasted fantastic and was the perfect temp. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because the sides really feel like they're after thoughts, not creative and no real attention paid. I know I know, it's a steak house, but for the price I feel that more care and attention is to be expected and it fell flat for us. Would also mention that the first round of bread was quite stale. Must add that it is a nice romantic place to take a date, ask for a spot next to the fire place.
Great food. The server was friendly. The host was very acomidating to getting us a booth during a busy day. I had hurt my back that day and there weren't any booths available but the got us one as soon as they could
Although I enjoyed our dinner, it wasn't up to the usual standards that I have come to know at this restaurant. The music was a little too loud although we enjoyed the songs that were playing, there was a bright light shining in my eyes from the serving station, and our waitress was not very attentive waiting until our meal was half gone before coming to check on us. She did not fill up empty water glasses (had to ask her twice). Had the filet mignon and it was a little tough compared to last time. Perhaps they were a little low on quality cuts being we were there a couple days after busy Valentine's Day. Might go back but only based on previous experience (had this been our first visit, we wouldn't).
Amazing food & hospitality! My gf and I have made Von's our designated girls night. We love the oysters, who am I kidding.. we love the whole menu! Totally recommend Von's!!
Great atmosphere, excellent service, and the best meal I've had in a long while
Edit: I came back a second time and am now removing a star for this review. The food was still good, but my $50 steak was not as good as expected - it had quite a bit of gristle. I would expect a nicer cut of meat for such a price. Also the waitress forgot about us for the first 20 or 30 minutes that we were there.
The food was definitely tasty, but for this second visit, it was not worth the price.
Went here recently for a nice dinner. The appetizers were delicious, the drinks were good, and the steak was ok. Didn't seem like anything special. One person in our group had to return the steak because it was WAY over cooked. It took up to 30 minutes to get our drinks. We had to ask for enough cutlery and steak knives. We weren't very impressed considering the price you pay for dining here.
It’s my first time dining here at Von’s and the food was top notch and so are the servers who took care of us. I will definitely come back! I recommend this place 100%!
Was here recently for a staff Christmas Party. The food was great the room was a bit tight for everyone but we made it work.
I only have two minor points:
1, You differently need to staff better for large groups. We only had one server for close to 40 people and it took a very long time to get drinks and food to everyone. She was working as hard as she could and did a great job but she needed help.
2, Your washrooms are like a sauna, everyone was talking about how hot it was. I have to agree it was very warm in the washrooms.
Other then the two minor details the food and drinks was really great and I will definitely be back for a dinner.
Superb!Excelent food and very professional staff.
A place where i want to come back.
This was my 4th time dining here. The service was decent although there was quite the wait in between drinks (bonus: didn't have a bigger bill which would've meant a bigger tip) we were there for a celebration so that was annoying. The best part was the food. The cooks did a stellar job of preparing my filet to perfection. The mushroom risotto was a revelation and I was very impressed with both the oscar add on and the lobster tail (all was cooked perfect). The cost is slightly higher than the Keg but you get the amazing selection of Oysters so that is a bigger pull for me
The smoke pear and berry salad was fresh, properly prepared and a great value for the price. We highly recommend it. The staff make sure it served fresh with amazing sauce!
Rebecca was an amazing waitress, so helpful to us!!!
Amazing food, amazing serving, and the manager was so sweet.
Went to Von's tonight for our wedding anniversary. Fortunately it was relatively quiet, which meant our food came out very promptly. Chris was a great server, apologized for bread coming out late, which we didn't really mind. Our steaks and veggies and sides were good. A little bit pricy in my opinion, but good quality food. Mac and cheese didn't have a lot of cheese flavour to it I found, but my ribeye was nice as were the veggies. Truffle fries were nice.
Alcohol was serve perfectly, the staffs was quiet busy which I understand because it's valentine's day. Food was great but needs to improve for more perfection.
The service was wonderful. Our server was knowledgeable and Allan the manager even came to check on us after our dinner. Oysters were fresh and delicious as usual but we never had the prime rib sliders and steak bites until last night. The sliders were a very nice surprise. Prime rib meat was tender and delicious with the brioche bun and crispy onions. The steak bites OMG I can't stop telling everyone how amazing they were. Tender morsels of sirloin that must have been marinated because they had a subtle Japanese flavor. They literally melted in your mouth like butter. Went really good with the Cabernet/Merlot blend we had to go with it. A must try!!! We can't wait to go back.
The food was fantastic as always, but the service and overall experience was subpar. Von's was always the place my spouse and I would go to celebrate a special occasion. It was a special place for us. In the past the food was always fantastic, the staff as a whole was experienced and professional, and the ambiance was simply perfect. On our last visit to the lounge, we were greeted with a discombobulated coat service; Green Day, Counting Crows, and Pearl Jam for our soundtrack, and service that lacked any experience or timeliness. Von's what happened the the low lit, Jazz inspired, top tier restaurant you once were. Disappointed.
We haven't been to Vons in a long time as we haven't live in Edmonton for quite a few years. We had a awesome server ,older gentlemen very passionate in what he does. Food was exilent steak was cooked perfectly ,exilent meal great price.
Amazing food. Steak cooked perfectly. Our server was an awesome server!
One of my favourite steakhouses in Edmonton. Always great service, good food specially steak and oysters, great atmosphere and still affordable. Thanks vons for maintaining your standards even in covid.
We had a great night here, thanks to The Manager who attended all our requests and needs! He’s really nice and attentive. Good ambiance, follows Covid19 protocols. Will definitely come back here.
First time at Von's and I was very impressed. We sat in the lounge and enjoyed a lot of oysters, wine, steak, and dessert. The wine pairings that were recommended were great! The entire evening was fantastic. I will definitely be going back for oysters as soon as I can. Our server Jameson was amazing!!
Tha manager Mido has developed his staff into a wonderful friendly efficient team who cant do enough for you. The margharitas I enjoyed after dinner were probably the best margharitas I have had around the world. Friday night sees a fantastic ambiance in the lounge.
Great food! The server was specifically interested in our dinning experience and paid special attention to our needs and requests. Most certainly will dine there again.
Decent food and friendly staff but the prices are rather steep for the quality offered. The options for scotch & bourbon are rather limited for an upscale steakhouse. There are better options in Edmonton for quality steaks. But, of course, your mileage may vary so I recommend that you visit at least once and make your own conclusion.
Vons is by far the best steakhouse I have been to. From the ambience of the dining room, the incredible customer service by the hostess and waiters, and the impeccable food. We enjoyed our night so much all because Vons provided us with an amazing customer experience. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion! I will definitely be going back!
This is one of my favorite steakhouses in Edmonton. The food is always amazing! Bacon wrapped scallops are great, the baked oysters are delish, and the drinks are great too! My favorite main is the Goat cheese filet mignon and it is Mmm-mmmm! It's a bit of a crime but we actually ordered take out yesterday for a stay at home date night and even that was fantastic - just make sure you write in the comments how you want your steak done otherwise it will be medium-well. ;)
Great atmosphere, food, and service. Went in for a buck a shuk special on oysters. They seemed short-handed and it took a while for the order to arrive, but wasn't too bad. At the end they gave us a desert free of charge because of the wait, which was nice of them. Prices on all other food on menu were on the higher end, but everything came out delicious.
It's not always easy to impress a group of 50 foodies but Vons did just that! We had the pleasure of sitting at the top of Vons with 50 of our closest friends and family for a special evening. It was a consensus between all that Vons was the place to have any party, celebrate a special occasion, or simply an excuse to eat some good food! The set menu was absolutely delicious; there was not one person in the room who didn't devour there plate. The BEST steakhouse Edmonton has to offer for sure! Thanks to Vons for being so accommodating, and providing such great service. We can't wait to return!
I love this place! But after last nights questionable food... I find it a little hard to maintain the five stars that had gotten earlier. This is now the second time we've eaten there with mixed results. Gone is the waitress we normally had who was possibly one of the best servers we had ever had. The young lady who took care of this last night was more than adequate however. Our visit before the service was absolutely horrible. And the food not bad this time four of us spending over $400 at the table most of us ordered steaks I had to fillet that had connective tissue in it and was tough as nails this is not a fillet... to the restaurants credit it did refund my meal but everybody else is steaks were average which is odd forSteakhouse.
Great place to meet with family and friends for superior service and food quality.
Excellent taste. Ribeye steak (feature of the day) was AMAZING and perfectly done. The quality of food has only gotten better after they reopened. Will come
Back for sure.
Went in for dinner. Was a fantastic experience! Good food great service! Our server Rebecca really connected with us on our date night. Thanks vons for an amazing evening will be back again soon.
I would love to give Von’s a five star review.
We had a wonderful dinner that was exactly what we wanted. The food was very well prepared and tasted wonderful. The service was great and welcoming. The atmosphere in the dining room was warm and comfortable. The loss of the star come from having to walk through the lounge to visit the rest room and having to endure the song Energy by Drake, (just google the lyrics) this music has no place is a public dining establishment. I did bring it up to the manager and he did apologize but a server stepped in and told me they do not have control over the play list.
That did put a bad ending on the experience and I hope they can fix the music for future guests.
One of my favorite place in town food and service are good
We love the lounge, Great food. Great atmosphere. Great value. A favorite go to spot for date night. I personally love the steak and the house red wine.
It was a nice place to go for dinner. We just tried the assortment of oysters and scallops which were all delicious. I couldn't afford to eat there every day. After $150 bill unfortunately we were still hungry. But overall a lovely place.
Upscale steak dinner. The executive chef really takes pride in what he does and it shows
Had one of our best meals in years tonight. Feels like the Von's of 20 years ago. Bradley was our server and he was fantastic. Food was beyond amazing. Thank you Von's for going back to your roots. Amazing food amazing service. Well done !!
Vons is a best place for family and friends. You must try and keep on coming back here. Food is great and amazing, the staffs are helpful. A cozy place to relax and dine with, they have a happy and helpful manager nido. One of the best place in town and high end service.
Visited on Saturday.
Place was busy .Food was great and service was professional and not over attentive .
The food was delicious! The service on the other hand was seriously lacking. Especially being one of two tables in the whole place, I rarely saw our server. We were served our steaks and didnt see her for a good 10 minutes after that. The bar was out of half of its stock as well
Great meal and excellent service. Thanks to Allan for a great service.
First time here. Amazing!!! Wow. Anand and the rest of the Staff were great, food was outstanding. Oysters, Steak, Wine list, dessert. 5 star all around! Can’t wait to come back!!
Our server Rebecca was awesome!
If your looking for classical cuisine, Vons is very good at hitting all the taste buds, the food is well prepared and the service are very professional, very good manager Mido Adel paying close attention to customer satisfaction!
In spite of it being very busy, our large dining party was handled very well. Diane was great and we couldn't have had a better experience. The food and the atmosphere are excellent.
This place is basically built for private functions of all shapes and sizes. It's had so many large rooms you can rent out for birthdays and what not it's really never ending. Food is always Top Notch and everything on the menu taste so good it keeps me coming back. Definitely a must eat at place in Edmonton. Keep up the good work Vons
Oh my lord, this place is amazing! It was my first time going to Von's. There were 5 of us & the waiter whom waited upon us was amazing! We had reservations for 5:00 pm on Christmas Eve & our waiter never rushed us (even after it had gotten extremely busy)! 👍
Service was amazing. Would recommend
Went to Von's with my friend from US this Tuesday. He wanted sea food and I believe I picked the right place. Oysters here are absolutely Fantastic, it doesn't matter if it a one dollar or a two dollar or a three dollar, they are fresh. I love both east and west. We had 4 dozens oysters. Lamb is great too. They don't have a big selection of tap beer but it doesn't matter. Five star!
Went to VONS few times recently and every time was great.
Prime ribs is the must try on the menu, Lychee Margarita is my girl’s favorite cocktail. Don’t hesitate to try Mushroom Neptune for appetizer.
Service from Thida was excellent, she managed to give us a booth seat. And she also showed us the dinning room area. It’s great for a quiet &/ a date-situation, all the wines on wall sure spice up the vibe.
Ps: they have parking, which is not so common near Whyte Ave.
Food was great, they do a good steak and the oysters were fresh. The service was a bit slow however. Prices are getting a little out of hand as well. They need to up their game a little bit, but overall a nice place. I'll be back.
the food taste good and fresh，the service is good，waiters are so shuai！！Just a little expensive
Absolutely amazing. Our server was on point and the manager was beyond giving. Birthday cake and a drink on the house. We will see you next week! Thank you
Upscale restaurant perfect for private functions/Birthday parties the waiters are extremely experienced and accommodating to large groups. Thank you to everyone working that night for allowing us to bring in the Henny donuts and sparklers and everything you did to make my girls birthday so special! Highly recommend this place.
I made a last min reservation for this place not knowing what to expect. I took my friend to dinner and when we got there our table was ready right away we were sat infront of the fireplace in dim light it was perfect. Wile we prdering we wanted wine but were unsure and our server helped us out with a great choice.
We recieved our starter with a cocktail then our meal came shortly after with the wine. Our server checked on us about twice witch was perfect and we were left to our selves to enjoy our dinner and conversation without being bothered. The atmosfear, the food the service and the company was perfect.
For drinks I had a peach sangria which was delicious (highly recommend actually), and a double mojito, also very good and full of mint!
My boyfriend and I shared oysters: 2 each of the 3 different kinds. I'm not experienced with oysters at all, but I must say the one with the lighter-colored shell was definitely the best out of all of them.. significantly better. I unfortunately I can't recall the name but I do know it was a West Cost Oyster. This was surprising because normally Eastern Oysters are better.
For main, I had a 10oz prime rib, medium rare, with steamed veggies. The meat was a nice thick juicy slice. Excellent. I'd say they beat out all other mainstream stakehouse competitors. I wished it was warmer though (or at least the gravy to be) but both were on the medium cold side.
My boyfriend had a steak, and unfortunately it was on the chewy side. It had a nice charred taste, but the meat was borderline enjoyable. A one-off odd cut, perhaps? Unfortunately I think this was enough to cost them at least half a star (I would've rated 4.5 if I had the option).
Although Von's might not be the first place that comes to mind when I crave a heavy meat dish, I will say they are worth a try and a nice venue for an intimate night or with friends.
Had a fantastic night here with a couple friends. The Caesars were tasty and the fresh oysters were delicious! We tried the creme brulee for dessert and it was the best I have had. Props to our server Sabrina, she was very knowledgable, fun and outgoing adding on to the great evening. As someone who works in and is passionate about the restaraunt industry, it's very pleasing to see another server giving next level service.
The food and service here were amazing. The steak was so tender and juicy, I dont think I've ever had a steak that tasted so good. Our server was extremely polite and fast accommodating us with every request and constantly checking to make sure everything was good.
It's a steakhouse. Don't come here if you're on a budget or not willing to spend money good food.
I do not reccomend the bacon ceasar though , to me it just tasted like slightly flavoured water and I don't know what the flavour was, not very good at all. The shrimp ceasar on the other hand, was quite good.
No wait! The food was exceptional. Mido the manager is very friendly as are his staff. 5 star review from my dinner party.
See you again soon
Service is awesome. Food , unfortunately, not so good. At least , not for my taste.
Wonderful date night out. They went the extra mile to ensure that we had an amazing time. Anand was the best server and the manager made sure everything was perfect.
One of the best culinary experiences I have had in Edmonton. I had the blessing of sharing this meal with dear friends but I confess the courses were so good I had a secret desire to be alone to eat this meal in reverent silence and give worshipping nods to the staff without a word spoken... I'm certain the look on my face would have fully affirmed them.
fluffy blue sky
Was in for dinner the other night, my server Rebecca was top shelf! Friendly, courteous and prompt, food was great too. I will definately be back.
We went for my wife's birthday. The coconut shrimp is very good. We had steak. It was a bit over cooked so order one level down is my recommendation. Other than that it was very nice.
I had perhaps the best steak ever last night at Von's. The oysters were amazing actually the entire meal was incredible! I highly recommend Von's as it is an amazing place to dine!
Great continuous and professional service. Always great food. Known for their oyster selection and happy hour. Excellent for small and large meetings. Our meetings are usually 25-35 people. Very nice table settings. Always happy when this is the selected meeting place.
I don't understand the people complaining about price and parking. It's not McDonalds. I'm a broke college student and don't mind spending extra to dine here once in a while. I was surprised and impressed initially at the portion sizes, they leave you full but not exploding. I hate going to Boston pizza's for example, getting a $12 plate that can only be finished over 3 days; you won't be getting doggy bags here. Von's is one of the classiest restaurants in Edmonton. I've been there with my boyfriend several times and it is our favorite by far. We always get excellent service, the staff are very knowledgeable and seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs, they are enthusiastic about the food and are ready to point out their own favorites. Expect to order a 3 or more course meal. And don't expect to get in on a holiday without a reservation.
I gave this experience a 3 but would have realistically been a 2.5 if there were half stars. We have been to Vons on several occasions. We have had great experiences and ok ones. This last one however was bad on many notes. We started off by being offered bread that never came. Ordered a bottle of what the waitress told us was a popular bottle only to be told they were out of it. It's a not so busy Thursday evening just to qualify the environment so being out of a popular wine was quite a disappointment. So we ordered bacon ceasars which were quite good. We ordered all of our courses all at once. Oysters. Tuna tartar. Venison carpaccio. Then our mains. My wife had the goat cheese filet and I had the cowboy steak. Let's start with the oysters. They were good but had to ask for lemon and horseradish that typically comes with it by default here. Now to the appies. Venison carpaccio was delicious although the shaved padano was no where to be seen on the dish. The tuna tartar was different. Probably because it was beef tartar and not the tuna we had ordered. The server did apologize for the error and the manager did come to the table and offer free desserts or drinks. We turned both down and just asked that the unfinished mistake be removed from the bill. He did do that as well as pay for a round of our drinks. Now the mains. Fingerling potatoes...should not be finished in a deep fryer and if they are you should probably clean the basket of the french fries that were previously cooked in it. My wife's steak was cooked to perfection as were her veggies. My ribeye however was over done. Flavour was good but overdone. Mybasparagus were borderline raw and the woody section at the base could have been trimmed better. All in all not a great experience by any means. And the music emanating from the kitchen blending in with the dining room tunes was not a good final touch. I cannot see us returning.
Had food poisoning from the oysters.
Started vomiting 2hrs after my meal and the torrent started from both ends after. The whole ordeal lasted 36hrs.
I understand there's a waiver etc about uncooked food but I've eaten oysters in a ton of places and never had that issue. Serving old seafood likely not a great idea to keep your clientele.
Might just be unlucky but it is the last time I'm eating there.
The best steak and oysters in Alberta. They havea great selection of fresh oysters from the best in the west to the best in the east. Very nice atmosphere. Great knowledgeable staff and all around amazing restaurant!!!!
I booked my husband 40th supper party. We had a party of 15 and they accomadated us in a private room.
We decided to try out there famous osters. They were to die for.
As for our waitress Kirsten , she kept the drinks coming and was very attentive to our needs she knew her osters and explained it all to us. She gave us the best service possible.
Then the main course came my husband being a former chef ordered the lamb and most others ordered steak. All on pare and amazing. We have never been to the restaurtant and it was on my list to go to. We will be back and I see why its been around for years.
Vons steak house. The service was excellent. We had gone there for a birthday party. The food was good and well presented. We had two guys serving us since it was a good size group. Best everything. I can recommend anyone .
This Bar has been improved and is much more pleasant than in previous years. The service was brilliant especially from the bartender who is great and very welcoming.
Great food... amazing steak and oysters... super friendly and accommodating service. How ever very slow!!!
Took along time to get beverages refilled
Or anything extra.
A little pricy but very good over all.
Comfortable atmosphere for fine dinning. As for the lighting - the darkness was overwhelming (makes me wonder what they are trying to hide). Enjoyed the meal, pleasant, but it wasn't outstanding or memorable. Staff was nice. Sensed that the place has a somewhat pretentious persona Very popular place to dine.
Rose Ann Romero
Great place to relax & unwind
This restaurant is a hidden gem, especially on a Friday evening. Very relaxing ambience, great staffs who are friendly, and attentive. It was a great evening to finish off a relaxed Friday. See you again soon.
Great service, food and atmosphere! Couple place, romantic with an amazing bar! Second time and I will definitely come back
The manager really went out of his way to make things right for us.
When someone shows they care, it really leaves a positive impression.
Been going here for decades. I can’t wait till they light the fireplace.
A great mix of classic, classy, chaotic, and yet quiet. You can love Von's for the amazing food, or the perfected almost time-lapsed atmosphere, but the real spotlight goes to the staff. They are impeccable when it comes to service, and very talented at reading the customers to know what they need.
I've never had the seafood here because I always go for the prime rib. Service is great. The atmosphere is good. The steak is amazing, possibly the best in town. Beats the keg, the sawmill, and Ruth's Chris hands down in my opinion.
Oh my gosh, I needed to be rolled out to the car after dinner. It was the best meal we have had in years, and most definitely my favorite restaurant in Edmonton. The service was more than excellent. Would give more stars if I could!
Vons steakhouse is always my go to spot when looking for fine dining. They have also added a more casual night on thursday nights as well. Always a great meal, and exceptional service at Vons Steakhouse!!
Went to Vons to celebrate and had a wonderful experience, the service was amazing and the food was perfect from the oysters to the cook of the steak right to the very last bite of desert - also, they make a helluva good old fashion. Thanks for a great night!
Michelle was Wonderful oysters and a great bottle of champagne 🍾!! Thank you for your wonderful service! Best place after a tiring day shopping or for a special occasion!!!
I had a wonderful experience at Vons, the server was polite, friendly, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour! I wish I remembered her name. The white sangria was fantastic, loved the bacon wrapped scallops which was the highlight for me. Only disappointment and reason for a 4 star was the steaks (New York Striploin and Rib Eye) the cook was to our liking however were really lacking in flavour other then the over powering char taste, which I normally like. I also didn't like that no fresh ground pepper was offered, then I asked for salt and pepper as it's not provided on the tables and was brought plain salt and pepper shakers that would be suitable for a Denny's or Tony Roma's. Not what you would expect for the high prices. We finished off the night witg tiramisu which was amazing!
Went here for staff Christmas party and the staff seemed very unorganized and understaffed for such a large party. Food was decent, steak was overcooked. They do have great cocktails though.
Food was great. Ambience was ok, and our server was great. I found it pricier that comparable steak houses, while quality was average. If you are looking for a good place to eat stake, this is the place. Look elsewhere if you want perfection.
I was in Edmonton on a pleasure trip with friends and needed a good place to have dinner. One of my friends suggested Von's steak house, so off we went. Let me tell you....WOW!! Great location, great wine menu, and a spectacular food menu.
I would like to give Ron Kaufman a special thanks for looking after us. Thanks for catering to my taste in music. (AC/DC)
My friend and I were looking forward to having a few oysters for their buck a shuck, got there about 10 minutes before it was over but were told it was already finished. Still ate some delicious oysters, the rest of the food was tasty as well. Service was fairly quick.
We don't go to Vons very often, maybe once a year, however every time we do, the don't disappoint! on Saturday we took our two daughters and two friends for a 21st birthday dinner, another great experience and free special desert for the birthday girl! We will be back.
Had team dinner in this restaurant. Menu is absolutely perfect it is for everyone. Service was awesome and Nido was very accommodating. Will be back definitely!
Charged full bottle for 8 oz of wine. Server was great but hard to hear.
Service was good & manager corrected the issue with the bill
Excellent place. Easy parking spot that you don't have to pay for. Mid century decor. Staff are super friendly. Suitable for small functions such a office parties etc. Food is very good. $$$
Went for a big birthday, the food was good the service was great our main server Chris and his staff for our group did an excellent job managing the entire group and was quick to fill water and removed dishes. He was also very personable and did a great job.
The best seafood meal I've ever had. The crab was not incredibly tender, although still very good. And the shrimp, scallops, mussels and oysters were all fantastic. Just my opinion. :)
This restaurant is very tastefully decorated and the wait staff is patient and friendly. Vons has a few menu items not easily found in the capital city, notably oysters, which are on a buck a shuck special Monday to Friday from 4:30-6:30pm and all day Sunday!
They also have a great bar, even serving Pisco sours!
I've only been to Von's on Sunday evenings with colleagues for "Buck a Shuck" night.
YUM!! We're going tonight too.
Choose from a handful of different oysters from different regions for $1. You order a minimum 6 at a time.
I'm a big eater and started to slow down after only about $25 oysters. They're more filling than you'd think!
The lounge area is dimly lit, clean and has a fine dining feel to it.
The servers are highly knowledgeable and always sweet and enthusiastic about the oysters, which makes newbies more comfortable when trying out a shucking experience for the first time.
On oyster night, be sure to order the tray of various sauces. SO GOOD. The oysters do come with a side of horseradish and a couple different Tabasco flavors, but the sauces on the side....just do it. Worth it.
The drinks are pricier, but come premium and to specification.
You MUST order the caesar oyster shot - a shot with some clam AND an oyster. Shoot it back, chew it up. mmmmmmmmmm
On our last visit, our friend ordered the Steak Tartar. At something like $18, it was very pricy for an appetizer, but after tasting it for myself, I can't wait to order it tonight.
It's about a cup's worth of Fresh, cool raw beef chopped with onions and herbs and served with crunchy bread crackers plated favorably. My mouth is watering thinking about it.
Von's is definitely a go-to for something fancier, excellent for a date night, after-work get together with friends and perfect if you want to step away from pizza joints or sushi bars for a more interesting alternative to dinner.
Been here a few times now, food and service were great and loved the oysters..... Now the reason I’m posting. Been reading the other reviews and what a laugh. Never trust anyone that shares a 8oz steak or plugs another restaurant in the review.....way to much of a biased opinion.
vons is best steahhouse & oyster bar in the town,ordered steak oscar it was perfectly cooked medium rare,from starters to the desserts,food was excellent and service was great,the ambience was really superb.
Went mainly for buck a shuck oysters- only 2 kinds are actually 1$ and you do have to order the same kind in half or full dozens which make sampling difficult. Drinks were def pricey. Service was really good though.
The food is decent but I don't think it's worth the price you pay for it. The oysters are great but make sure you go for buck a shuck or you're paying $4 for each oyster. All in all, I would never go back to vons for dinner.

Great food great service fresh oyster ...smoky old fashioned amazing..i can't hold myself to have 10 of it great combination great steak thanks vons ...thanks mido my wife loved the way you approached us thank chef for your crab
The food was delicious, however the time we had to wait for our food was much too long - 3 hours and 15 minutes. We got our entrees at the 3 hour mark. It was a big group of us, but the restaurant was not busy in the slightest.
This used to be a solid date night spot for us, but it seems like the service standard has slipped a bit from what it once was (last server we had here was actually a manager, you'd think he would have been on point, but that wasn't the case), and the quality of the product on the plate is less than what I expect at this price point. Not sure if they have recently changed chefs or what...
Save yourself some money and go to the Keg, or if you want a better experience try Hardware Grill downtown.
Wonderful place for special occasions. Vons has a long standing reputation for great food, ambiance, and service.
Had an amazing time our server Diane attended to our every need, and suggested the perfect wine for our meal. And there they were... gone (my drawers that is). They also brought out B-day dessert for my mother, above and beyond, thx you VONS, cheers.
New ownership and great fresh oysters ❤️
Used to be the best steak house in the city. The food quality is not nearly what it used to be. No bone marrow or roasted garlic with your steak. Service was poor. Might as well go to the keg.
Went for buck a shuck night and the prices were not buck a shuck. They upcharged for certain types of oysters. Aside from that minor detail the service was awesome and the food was great.
Enjoyed the oysters and two glasses of Convoisier VSOP .
If I was on death row and was allowed to request a final dinner on my last day on earth - it would be the food from Vons. Utterly amazing! I could use fancy words and elaborate adjectives to describe my experience, however; i'll give you the plain and simple truth - Vons food is unlike any other steakhouse in the city. Edmontonians, treat yourself and treat your loved ones at Vons!
The food was delicious and not overpriced, had some drinks, great atmosphere!
One of the best steakhouse, management are really wow they made our night great , we will be back soon
Very good service and atmosphere. Fantastic appetizers and entrees, too. Great restaurant just off of Whyte, certainly worth a visit if you're in the area.

Would not recommend the prime rib, for $35 you only got one side that was veggies or potatoes and was surprised at how it was on the tough side. The Keg is much better for prime rib. Veggies were delicious and was nice inside.
The food and atmosphere was amazing. Our server was courteous and friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Good food, friendly service. The chef came out and checked on our meal satisfaction, and the waiter made sure we were comfortable with the overhead lamp brightness
Their oysters are worth trying. The prime rib here is also quite good. The way they do their steak, however, is not as appetizing for me as at other restaurants.
I came here with my spouse for the first time yesterday for my birthday. We had a few drinks (I had two red sangrias and he had a pint of sapporo). I ordered the 6oz filet with red skin mashed potatoes and added an order of asparagus; he ordered the 10oz prime rib with veggies.
My filet was dry - something which has never happened to me before, and I'm not a food connoisseur. It 'flaked' when I cut it with my knife, which was weird and a shame because the seasoning was great. My sides were delicious and I was impressed by how much asparagus I got. My spouse's food was great as well.
I voted 3 stars because my steak was expensive and disappointing... however my spouse's meal was nice and I did really enjoy my side dishes. I might come back but wouldn't try the filet again.
We loved the tiramisu. Our waiter was very in tune with our wine needs. We were welcomed despite our rude discussions of dingleberries. Also the steak was amazing.
Food was great, service was sub-par for "casual fine dining", especially on a slow night. Great value for money on the menu. We will definitely be back as hopefully it was just an off-night for the service staff.
OMG! i really hope to visit this restaurant again with my family! i really love the food and the drink! the king crab legs is so legit it seasoned very well!
Good service and great quality of food.
Great service and food was wonderful. I have Celiac disease and our server didn't understand what that meant, but admitted it and asked me for an explanation to be sure she communicated it correctly to the kitchen. Good job Diane!
very middle ground... I dont think people go there for the food.
Disclaimer: this review is for the **many** times hunnybunny and I have gone to Von's for the Buck-a-Shuck oyster special.
While we've had oysters together over the years, our love affair with oysters really blossomed in Luderitz, Namibia, in the "dining room" of the Bay View Hotel, where we shared plate after plate of the fresh local ocean flowers with a team of Peace Corps volunteers one summer afternoon. Since then we've sampled all varieties of oysters as we travel.
So it was with some joy that I heard about Von's, the long history it's had in the lives of the Edmontonians I know, and their oyster special. Time and again we've spent an early evening at Von's, downing oysters of all the species on offer, reminiscing of sunsets and seafood gone by.
Go, enjoy, and if there's any per-person limit on oysters, consider partaking in the meats that I've heard are available. I just haven't gotten around to them (yet).

I go on a regular basis, only once my steak was over cooked and not by much. It was taken away and exchanged immediately. I have just about every item on the menu and nothing I wouldn't eat again. The only negative I have to say is that the deserts change to often. Which is great unless you have a craving for that one they've changed. Like the smoked apple pie.
Best buck a shuck you'll find in Western Canada. They have a great selection of cocktails and are known for their steak and seafood. One of the top 3 steakhouses in Edmonton for decades.
My first time there, it was slow because the place was almost closed but it was great! Thida was a wonderful server, we'll definitely be going back for her
I really enjoyed myself at Vons - While its bin awhile since I was here last - Inpecable serices as usual - The guys the gals went out of They're way to treat us accordingly - A night to remember for sure ..
Always good muscles but the service wasn't very good this time...
Amazing service and great food! From the oysters to the dessert and everything in between. Great experience. I will be back again.
If Anyone is looking to host an event or dine out there is only One restraunt in Edmonton to choose! Von s Steak House ‼️ Words can’t describe how Amazing they made our night . From the Executive Chef to the Incredible staff they truly reflect the Amazing family who own and operate the Class of Edmonton dinning ! I wish I could make this a 10 Star review . This is the second family event we have hosted at Vons and will not be our last ! Thanks so much to All those helping last night you are truly the class of Edmonton ‼️
Coconut shrimp: the sauce over powered the shrimp barely tasted like Coconut.
Bacon wrapped scallops: good but the cocktail sauce basically tasted like ketchup.
Prime rib sliders: good but way too much horse radish, au jus would be better.
Tuna tartar: very good, no fishy taste. Definitely recommend.
Amazing service by Rebecca and food was exceptional!
Just visited the place after almost 5 months of being stayed home coz of covid. I really love the place to dine and chill especially being served by lovely smiling staffs. Congratulations for having these staff.
Thank you Becca server extraordinaire
For your recommendation.

We went there yesterday and the experience was awesome! The manager was really nice. I recommend this place to people who want to chill and have a great night.
Excellent service. Thida was amazing and very diligent with the service. Food was absolutely delicious!! Will be coming here more often
Always love a buck oyster day! Bacon Caesar is very tasty
Service was beautiful. An error on the oyster ordered as well as steak temp however that did not get in the way of wonderful tasting steak paired perfectly with wine
It had a really good atmosphere and the food was amazing, the only thing I didn't like was that the portion for the lobster was very small.
Amazing food, great service, and an overall exemplary dining 12/10 will be recommending to my friends and family.
Great food and drinks. Oysters were succulent ,steak was juicy and tender. The owner was great and iffered us sone kind of new drink that he came up with. It was very good.
Love this place. Buck a Chuck on Sundays is very good. Service is great. Love the lounge, not a fan of the upstairs as it's not as private as booths in the lounge.
Have been a few times and will continue to return.
Best Prime rib of the new year
Good food and excellent service by staffs who looked after us and offered the best recommendations. Excellent location but a little overpriced.
The restaurant is neat and clean, the staff are helpful they are nice and can accommodate you properly. I really love this restaurant. hoping to visit it again.
I can’t believe how great the vegetarian option was. Thank you
We celebrated our anniversary the food is great, service is excellent, staff are very nice especially the manager, job professionally done.
Food was delicious, but the server forgot about us for about 30 min. My glass of wine I wanted with my steak came just as i finished my steak, not what I was hoping for.
Love coming here. Food are delicious and stuff are caring and friendly. Love their lychee martini.
Very lovely place, the food was amazing! I didn't like how closely seated you are to others, a family with kids (we had our child with us to) was put next to us and they were on their loud phone the whole meal.
Holy meat <3 my hubby is a steak fiend and he raved about a striploin at this place. Dynamite cocktails (pricey, so bring your stuffed wallet) and the bartender did free shots for our friend's bday!
The food was amazing, the staff was wonderful, and we will be back, its my new favorite restaurant!
This restaurant is the best! The horseradish was so spicy!!! I liked the servers they were very kind to the kids and the adults. I’d totally recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.
Food rocked and got to watch the Flames lose out of the playoffs so even better! All kidding aside the steak was top notch and I dug into the Oysters of course to kick the night off, my only regret was not ordering more.
The food is consistently well prepared and delightful, cashiers gives awesome service. I liked how neat it is and ambience. Will visit here again.
Who the hell does OpenTable think they are to censor negative reviews. Move to another country like in Vladimir P.
Tried to post a review of our dining experience at Von's the other day and made the mistake of responding to OpenTable request for a review.
Don't make the mistake of telling OpenTable because if it's negative they won't publish.
Must be on the take with the restaurant you are trying to rate. Lol
I only had a burger, it was $19.95 and FAR below average. Red Robin's $12.00 burger is way better and bigger and it comes with endless fries.
Covid protocols were excellent. Food was fantastic and service even better. Thank you Anand & Mido!
Excellent food, drinks, and service.
Loved it! Great steak, and our waitress was very nice and personable.
Oysters were absolutely amazing. However did not enjoy my steak as much as i thought I would, found it a bit dry, and service from out waitress was a bit slow considering how quiet it was.
The service was incredibly slow, drinks took a very long time to come out. But what saved it was the delicious food
Top tier, turned my girlfriend into a steak lover. Top tier servers, top tier food
Frequent visitor of the place. Fantastic ambiance & Very friendly staff. Delicious food with nice drink and lounge. Great place to spend evening.
The food was standard but the service was slow and curt. Great if you're looking for oysters, not if you're looking for a gourmet meal.
Some really good appies (steak bites, tuna tartar) and salads (smoked pear, beet, wedge)... Entrees were uninteresting and underseasoned. Desserts were dreadful. Sevice was excellent.
I've eaten at Vons many time and consider the Prime Rib there one of the best. They did disappoint one time but other than that one time, the Prime Rib was fantastic. I also love the horseradish there.

Good food and our waitress was great. False advertising however is not okay. Oysters are not a “buck a shuck”.
Went for the buck a shuck. It was a great dining experience and the waiters were on point. Will go again. Parking is validated so don't worry about finding parking which is nice on whyte ave
We had our wedding here they did a exellent job with that. We now have our anniversary dinner here every year. Steak and oysters are best in the city!
This place clearly knows how to satisfy their clients. Constantly with a friendly attitude. The food is affordably priced, constantly fresh and neat.
Buck a shuck rocks! Lots of different types of oysters to try and they're all fresh and unique! I followed with the tuna tartare - really nice with the avacados!
Excellent service, delicious food and refreshing beverages... As always love this place..
Excellent service! Excellent food! First time going to vons, definatly going back!
This restaurant provide a meals above my expectations! I really like this restaurant, i can recommend this to my friends!
After a busy day , it was just nice to come back and enjoy a drink in the relaxing lounge and bar. With the nice people and a nice ambiance
Best customer service best serving Medo the manager is the best wonderful atmosphere delicious food I just love it

excellent french onion soup. the new york strip was also amazing. the only thing I didnt like was the fact that they used margerine instead of buttet.
one of the only classy high end Restaurant ,till now servers are awsome and the food emmm so tastey and no matter how they cook your steak it always melts in your mouth ,those oysters perfect and fresh
Fantastic food and service. Great experience.
I went here with co-workers for a get together. It is a nice and confortable place. I had the best prime rib I ever had at Vons.
Went for Valentine's day. Staff, food, and ambience were amazing!
Service was pretty good. Most of the stakes people ordered were good. Just a couple people got really dry chicken breast
The manager and staff are really nice and service is fast.

Food and drinks are always amazing! I'm from Vancouver so I am not a fan of a lot of seafood here but this place I just LOVE!
Pricey but good. Enjoyed a long conversation with no pressure to leave. They printed our bill, but waited for us to ask for it.
We just went for the Buck-A-Shuck Oysters, but that was enough!! Delicious, and a huge variety. Excellent drink specials as well
Good bar with good drinks and friendly staff, on five stars all with a view of great snowy ambiance.
The Almost a buck a shuck happy hour is always great, it's nice to get some trusty oysters in the middle of the prairies!
Atmosphere and service was good both times we visited, the food was good the first time,
average the second ... if you are paying those prices, food should be exceptional each and every time, not hit or miss .. pretty sure it will be our last visit for a while !!
We were there for Valentines day 2019. Great food, server needed some training, and the plating could have been better.
Amazing down to earth beautiful architecture and many different dinning areas give you the feeling of different restaurants in one bar area is super friendly and prompt and the kitchen staff is on the ball never a complaint about my food all around awesome place for any occasion prices are very reasonable for the quantity and quality of food you receive highly recommended..*****
Amazing service! Amazing food! Drove all the way Saskatoon just for the oysters!
Becky and taran was amazing
The server was not very experienced and the steak wasn't done right also too much fat
Great Covid protocols , AMAZING staff , The food is 10/10 . Will always be coming back
Great food! Great service! Me and the family had A wonderful experience nice comfortable restaurant, nice mood setting all in all great place to eat!
Delicious oysters. One of the few buck a shucks in Edmonton (at least that I could find). Ribeye was ok, definitely not worth the price.
Great food and great service. Thank you so much. Wife and i had so much fun.
Love their steak and oyster. Great ambience for dating. service is always perfect as well!
Amazing food. Great atmosphere. Great cocktails and the best service in the city!
The food is always amazing! They have a great drink selection love sitting by the fire place!
Great food, awesome ambience. And good service from Anand. Thanks for having us!
Vonn is the best and Michelle thank you for your excellent service!!!
Everything from the food to the service was exceptional, the food is a bit pricey, but it was definitely worth it.
Great atmosphere, Great Food, Friendly Service. Had the lamb with sweet potato rolled in Cantonese, sooo Good!!!
Tried this spot in the past with my friend and I am obsessed ever since. I liked the awesome mood and delightful food and beverages. Keep it up.
