Overall the food at Quinn’s did not disappoint. What was disappointing was how slow the service was. It was over 45 minutes between the time we arrived and the first appetizer came out. And then the long wait for mains and the very slow wait to get the attention of someone to bring the bill. Given how slow the service was it would have been nice if there was fresh bread or something to snack on but unfortunately there wasn’t anything. Based on my recent experience this may no longer be my go to place for a nice lunch.

Absolutely horrible. Steak was no better than you would be served at Denny’s. The advertise their cuts as AAA ALBERTA prime. If that’s the best Alberta has to offer they should be ashamed. Service was slow and unreliable. When I told my Toronto friends that I had eaten at Quinn’s they chuckled.

Had lunch with my colleagues- it was a poor experience. Our food took about 40 minutes and everything was undercooked.

The waitress said the burger patties were made in house and we can pic the temperature. I picked medium but the burger patty was still red/raw; however, since they took forever - I did not even have time to send it back.

The waitress was not friendly and did not come by until the food arrived... not even to refill the water.

The food and service were very good, and you can beat the location ifyou staying at the Sheraton. The steak was perfectly cooked and flavorful, the veggies were tender-crisp.The lamb was well seasoned and flavorful. Reasonably priced too!

Food was just ok. They ran out of garlic mashed potatoes at 7:30 pm. Offered us substitutes of baked or broiled potatoes.... obviously there were potatoes but nobody wanted to mash them :)

Where we were initially seated was very narrow and seat sloped to one side. Tool a long time for food to be served, seemingly there was a large party who ordered before us

We were a party of 6 and experienced great service. The food was very good with our steaks cooked exactly as requested (med rare). The wine selection offered us sufficient variety and at reasonable prices.

The ambiance was nice. A quiet place to dine to start an evening out. The salmon and the lamb shank were tasty. The charcuterie board was a bit disappointing. The cold cuts were not separated and the bread with the board was a jawbreaker. The waitress was kind enough to bring softer bread. There was a good serving of vegetables with the meal but they were undercooked. Tender crisp requires more cooking time. The service was exemplary.

The dining room was too noisy due to the noise coming from the bar! Suggest that doors be added to reduce the noise coming from the bar.

Food was delicious. We were not rushed but our apppitizer and salads came out all at once. Very nice chicutorie platter and the Cesaer salad was amazing. Our prime rib was so tender we could cut it with our fork.

Food was cold, we had to wait for one meal while everyone else had there’s for about 10-15 minutes. The chicken was so dry and tasted awful. Won’t go back.

Awesome! Great start to our night. Great food and wine. Ambience was fantastic. Server enquired if we were attending a play, game or concert. Very mindful of our time.

Definitely will go back next time we are in town

The food and service were good. However the noise level was almost intolerable. There was a table behind the partition beside us which contained a group of people trying to over shout eac other. When we commented to our waitress she apologized but said that they were running “a thousand dollar bill”. We inferred from this that if we did not like it, we could leave.

My daughter & I recently ate at Quinn's Steakhouse. She ordered the Neptune Steak (one of that day's specials) and I ordered the Flat Iron Steak, both were delicious and done to perfection, as were the accompanying side dishes! The presentation of the meals was amazing and the service was very attentive but not rushed. The drinks we ordered were also delicious. The atmosphere and decor gave a very comfortable and relaxed feeling. We highly recommend dining at Quinn's!

HI. The only small snag was the timing of the wine. We had to ask for the wine menu and it took some time to receive it so we were part way through our entree when the wine arrived. Not a big deal but get the wine earlier would've made it perfect. The food was tasty although I wished the garlic mashed potatoes had some more garlic in them. Thanks for a nice meal.

Good ambience with a steady stream of clients. Table was small and the restaurant bussling - definitely not a quite romantic dinner. Server was excellent. Food very good although my spouse should have ordered beef tenderloin as she didn't enjoy her surf and turf as much as I did. Definitely would come back as good value for money. Next time I would ask for a more remote table.

Visiting from out of town.

Service was minimal and when Our meal was served- there was no follow up until
the bill. Disappointing as missing sauce order. Could even see anyone to ask.
Decor needs cleaning up ( ceiling tiles)
Food was good overall

The portabello mushroom dish had a portabello the size of a jam lid. It was supposed to be stuffed with goat cheese. The goat cheese was a spoon full ladled on top. The mushroom was black. I guess grilling something that small must have discolored it, or it had been in the fridge for days. Gross. The desert (pecan pie) was straight out of a Walmart freezer. The waiter took forever to bring the check.

I have been coming here for steaks for years, at least once a month if not more often. If I am in the mood for a hearty meal (and girth permitted of course) I will go for the 14 oz rib-eye. Otherwise, it is always the steak frites, medium rare, chipotle butter. I have never left unsatiated, until this visit. This time around, the flat iron steaks (plural, my friend ordered the same thing at my suggestion) were dry, tough and chewy. My friend's cut, in particular, had a lot of tendons. Even the fries, which are usually golden on the outside with fluffy potato meat inside, so sinful after soaking up all that steak juice, were dry, dark, shriveled and tasted like they had been repeatedly fried in recycled oil. We didn't report this to the waiter (who was never in sight to begin with) because we were pressed for time.

For the first time in 5-6 years, I didn't leave with a happy heart and a full stomach. And I knew I would have a hard time convincing my friend to trust my recommendations again. This might be an isolated slip-up but given that both orders were in same bad shape, I am hesitant to return and give the restaurant a chance to redeem itself.

We enjoyed our dinner at Quinn’s, service and ambience were enjoyable. Food was all delicious, and steaks were well prepared, however they were rather “lean” ie low marbling so not as flavorful as they could be. Still very good and we would recommend Quinn’s for a nice steak dinner
