This place is not very big, older period furniture but comfortable. Nice for an evening out in an intimate setting.

Arrive. 10 minutes before any service. 25 minutes: drinks arrive. Cup dirty—notified right away. 35 minutes: ask again for a cup. Hot drink in pot now lukewarm. 50 minutes: arrival food. One order completely wrong—no apology and no discount—inferred our fault. Suggested I keep it because, as was implied, too hard to fix. Bill arrives. Wrong total. New bill. Wrong... More

I emailed this restaurant on Wednesday to inquire about catering for Saturday. I still hadn't heard back by Thursday so I called to inquire. They told me the owner would call me right back but they never did. Come Saturday, we decided to just stop in and place our order. When we did, they said they were too low staffed... More

We work close by, but have recently had lunch and found the prices increased again and the food quality is okay but not for the price. Serving sizes small for big costs. Too bad cause they have a lovely secret garden in the back of the restaurant. Won't be back.

Dish and Runaway Spoon is right - run away from this place! Atmosphere is interesting - local art - uneven lighting - no extra heat by the windows/doors in Dec. AND the service was ATROCIOUS. We waited for 5-10 minutes before the server came and got our drinks order, did not attend to us while we ate the meal. Portions... More

I have been dissappointed a few times now. Too bad, as they have a lovely secret garden in the back of the restaurant that is tranquil in the summer.

My boyfriend and I bought a groupon for the Dish since we were going to be housesitting nearby for a weekend. I wasn't expecting too much since the website looks quite dated, but we were blown away. It was a warm evening and we were seated in the back patio - it was gorgeous. There were plants hanging everywhere and... More

Stopped in for lunch with my wife, beautiful summer day in Edmonton, sit in the court yard if you can. minor construction next door, but hey, that's progress. Food and service excellent. Tomato soup very good as was the crab cake. The only negative was they were out of the pork schnitzel, so settled for the turkey burger, which was... More

My daughter wanted to take me out for a nice lunch today. The dish & the Runaway Spoon is not a very fancy restaurant, it is down to earth but the food is 5 star. I had the prawn melt and it came with lots of prawns with a very tasty mayo sauce. She has a grilled 3 cheese also... More
