Hi Lads,

I need to take a client out for a decent dinner next week. Any restaurant suggestions in South Central Edmonton?

We do not need five star nor a $ 500 tab. Just something reasonably impressive; say one step up from a Keg. I would say @ $ 30 to $ 40 for an average entree price, or thereabout.

Your suggestions would be appreciated.

If Edmonton has one take them to Joey Tomatoes, awesome food, waitresses, and service. Reasonably priced as well. Try their steaks, they are to die for.

It's new here and reviews have been fairly positive.

Joey's in SS Common is good used to be Joey Tomatoes, though if you have a taste for ethnic then my fav is right beside Supreme, Tropika, kick ass Maylasian cuisine or a little greek place beside the Terrace Inn run by the same family that had Yannis on whyte Ave (the original owners) Awsome food and service.

my 2 cents

Ruth Chris is an excellent steakhouse however you can pay upwards of $60 per steak, can be expensive. best steak for the dollar is the keg my lad.

I take clients to Packrat Louies in Old Strathcona. It's about a block off Whyte Ave, has awesome food, a little more upscale then the chain restaurants but the prices are still reasonable.

I can't say enough good things about Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. Pricy but the food is second to none and if you want discretion this is the place for that becuase there's not as much of a chance of running into anyone you know at a place such as this. Go to something more common or popular and you might bump into somone you don't want to see you. Also the staff at Ruth's Chris is very professional so if discretion is what you need that is also a factor.

Hey Dino:

Can you tell us where Ruth Chris's Steakhouse is located??? I looked in the Edm White and Yellow pages and can't find it (unless it's under a different name).

thanks

Ruth's Chris

Ruth's Chris Steak House
Address : 10103 100 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 0N8
Telephone : 780-990-0123
Fax : 780-429-2270

I haven't been to Ruth's Chris, but I think the Keg has great steaks. I also agree with the nominations for Unheard Of, Normands and Tropika, and I'll throw in Mikado and Sankyu if you like Japanese, and Gabbana if you just want great food. If you go to Gabbana you might be hard pressed to get the price of your meal up to $30-$40 per entree, but the food is as good as the priciest restaurants in town IMHO.

thanks for the info on Ruth's Chris....It looks like it's next to the Westin or next to Hy's.

My suggestions...for Japanese, I've enjoyed Kyoto (downtown or on Argyll Road)....Steak is good at Hy's. Italian, try Sorrentino's.

Great Atmosphere...

Ric's Grill... downtown location on 104St and 102 or 103 Ave...on the corner. Prices are fairly reasonable and the food and service has always been excellent. Menu to please just about anyone... steak is awesome, but also serves chicken, seafood and lamb. Dress code is semi-casual and the atmosphere is one of the best. Seating layout allows for many quiet booths and noise levels are low... even with a full house. Wine selection is fairly extensive, but for a $25 cork fee... you are permitted to bring your own selection if you desire.
I've had the rare opportunity lately to eat in some of the finest restaurants in Canada, and I'm still a huge fan of Ric's downtown... never a bad experience.
Ahh hmm... yeah... for those of you who aren't all that excited by the "rare" delicacies presented at some of the top restaurants...lol... Ric's is a breath of fresh air.
Nothing against trying something new... lol... but I draw the line at various animal glands in ravioli. I know of 2 people reading this who are laughing their asses off...LOL....
