We went at the end of a long walk, and 2 of the 4 of us ordered meatloaf, both of which were not as hot as they needed to be. We sent them back, and they brought us out new piping hot new ones -...the customer service displayed by the server was superb (and the food that came back was perfect).More

Pompous staff and terrible food. Vegetables were so burned they were unrecognizable. Service took forever. When I complained about the vegetables, the waiter laughed at me.

None of us had anything to complain about in our weekend breakfast, but a couple of us found the eggs slightly overcooked. The coffee is very good, which was the difference between 3 or 4 stars.

We just moved downtown and were excited to try our the Blue Plate Diner. We enjoyed every bite and relaxed on the beautiful patio.

Our last review of the Blue Plate Diner was a few years ago and it was excellent. They moved from downtown and tonight we gave them a try. The atmosphere is not the same but we wrote that off to a new location and the...very hard to beat location they had. The food was poor at best. One main course was between cool and cold, the other was overcooked and dry. Even at the low prices this is not a restaurant we will try again. Really sad after the previous great experiences. Perhaps that is why the restaurant was almost empty on a Saturday night.More

On the day that we visited, service wasn't very good. I asked for a menu as I did not want to download the menu on my phone, staff seemed kind of rude. Food was very bland and didn't seem very fresh. Not worth what we...paid for it. Hard a hard time getting coffee refilled. There are way better diners in the city with way better food and service.More

I have eaten here many times since they moved from 104th Street. The service is always excellent as is the food. Where to start: great green onion cakes, great Cobb Salad, excellent meatloaf etc. etc. etc. The nicest thing though is that for February they...are doing Thursday evening jazz nights. I came in with my daughter this past Thursday. It was delightful. It is actually a very nice venue for jazz, the quartet was excellent, as was the beef tenderloin. Perfectly cooked, great demi-glace. I have never been disappointed here at the Blue Plate Diner. Thank you for many wonderful and enjoyable meals.More

First time to Blue Plate since move from downtown. Great service. Food simple, hot and tasty. Very relaxing. Reasonable as meal, drinks for two, including tip $60. Would definitely come back.

No parking. Not busy. Wish it was all day brunch on this sunday. Had a super bland veggie shepherds pie which lacked taste. I was charged for it but it was taken off when asked the owner. Wish I didnt have to ask for it...to be taken off. Not impressed with this one I'm afraid. My daughters mac and cheese was good though?!More

Hi Mona, we have recently started serving brunch everyday until 4pm. I hope you will consider giving us another chance to show you why we've been one of Edmonton's favourite restaurants for more than 15 years :) See you soon! 💖

We had the shepard’s pie which was piping hot but lacked some serious seasoning. All my hubby said was your make better at home’. The other entree was the basic burger which again lacked flavour! I was disappointed because this was my go to on...farmers market days for lunches out but had never had dinner so that’s my bad. Definitely will not be back.More

Hey there, thanks for your feedback and we're sorry to hear that your experience wasn't what you expected. We've been ironing out some lumps and bumps since we relocated, but I think I can confidently say that we're better than we've ever been! I hope...More
