Nice food but quality slightly below cost - tenderloin pork. Drinks service was slow. Bill included 18% service charge for parties over 8 and then they didn't bring any change so charge was more like 25%. Don't be caught out at the bill stage!!

Fantastic food! YUM! I had the lamb. Tried the beef cheeks. Both were very delicious. The staff went out of their way to make the evening unforgettable!

Nine of went to dinner on a Thursday evening. The place was almost empty. The staff was accommodating and helpful and the meals arrived promptly. The "Ticinese" salad was wonderful but I really like butter crunch lettuce. My wife substituted chunks of feta cheese for the blue cheese topping. She was pleased as well. Many in our party had the... More

I visited Packrat Louie for lunch with a friend. We had been there several times in the past 10 years or so and the food was always good. Unfortunately the last 2 times we visited the food was not tasty at all. We ordered the Ticino salad, consisting of lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and blue cheese. There was so much dressing... More

Recently I took my friend who was celebrating a birthday out for lunch to Packrat's . It has long been a favourite of ours. Our server was friendly and well-informed on the lunch menu. She gave us recommendations and we had an enjoyable lunch. Locally-sourced ingredients are promoted and there is always an accommodation made to particular tastes. Customer service... More

Our table felt like it was in the center of an empty space - not very cosy and lighting a bit too bright. Food was ok but nothing special. Service was efficient but not overly friendly. We were asked to order desert quickly as kitchen was closing. There are many great restaurants in Edmonton that I would visit before returning.

I was so excited to go to Packrat Louie for dinner. Everything was in place for a great experience, the staff were nice, the menu was great but for some reason the experience fell flat. I left thinking "that was good but I wouldn't go back". Having said that, the chicken Masala perogies were delicious and the duck was good... More

Family of 4 (kids 8 and 10). The food was decent, but I think it's a bit on the pricey side (even for the Whyte avenue area). I know they can't control this, but I also felt the other clientele were a bit elitist which gave the restaurant an uncomfortable vibe. Probably won't be racing back, but glad we gave... More

Went for dinner Saturday night - excellent food, atmosphere and service. I had the fillet, but would sub fries instead of potato served with it. My wife had lemon pizza which is awesome. Great to actually be able to talk over dinner as not too loud.

We have eaten here a few times over the years. The staff and food are well prepared for diners on their way to a night out and occasional celebrating a special event. Most tables are reasonably private and the set up is not overly crowded. The food is moderately priced and has always been tasty and well presented.
