Have been here many times but thought we'd try their chef's choice 4 course meal coupon on Group On- glad we did. i always happily settle in here- maybe it is the wood smoke from the pizza oven but it always feels cozy and comforting. Chef's choices for the evening were nicely thought out-we decided to have the opposite of... More

Our dinner before attending the theater was mediocre, at best. This restaurant is definitely living on past laurel's. Time for an upgrade. Excellent server, but Cook staff needs revamping. Meal was not worth the money.

My wife and I visited Packrat Louie for the first time recently. Right off the bat the staff was very friendly and we were seated right away. The server was extremely attentive and had great insight into the menu and wine list. I had the rack of lamb and it was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. My wife ordered a... More

Consistently, the lemon pizza - one size only that can be a meal for one - or shared appetizer for two - is the best thing on their menu. We've had several meals at Packrat, and we always find the appetizers better than the entrees. We had the cod cheeks and butternut gnocchi last week as part of their 4... More

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.
