Service With a Smile


I am finding as a foodie, that it doesn’t matter how amazing the food is where ever you go to eat, it will always be the server that makes or breaks your experience.  I have also been finding that serving is an art form unto itself. There are very few that will make the effort to go that extra mile.

Here is where I would like to share exceptional service with my readers.

December 18, 2013 – Courtney from Craft Beer Market

I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the Yelp Edmonton Soft Opening event for Craft.  It was super crazy busy and Courtney handled everything with grace under pressure.  Thanks for a great evening Courtney!

November 1, 2013 – Doug from Mr. Mikes

Mr. Mikes franchise is a “West Coaster Thing”.  It is a date night for us because it has over 30 years of memories for myself.  Doug was able to make his job look effortless and was able to provide exceptional service, always smiling!

September 17, 2013 – Mandy from On The Rocks

On The Rocks is a favourite during the hockey off season.  We had a couple of waitresses prior to Mandy, but she instantly took charge and took care of our group.  Cheerful without being fake.  Efficient.  Able to charge out individual tabs.

August 7, 2013 – Danny from Tres Carnales

Danny happens to be one of the working owners of Tres Carnales.  He is always welcoming.  He gets us to order our food so that it is ready as soon as a table is available.  Very accommodating with our large group.

July 3, 2013 – Mary from Hawkeyes Too

Mary is a favourite!  She gets to know you in a couple of visits and is able to banter back and forth with her regulars in her own special way.  Mary makes a mean Caesar and keeps them coming!

June 21, 2013 – Brent from Chianti’s

I was having serious issues picking a restaurant for my girlfriend and I to go to because I usually choose gastropubs over anything else.

Chianti’s on Whyte has always been a good fail-safe plan.  The food is wonderful, the pasta hand made and I have been fortunate with servers.

Our orders were taken immediately, the food was fast.  The service was phenomenal – many thanks to our server, Brent.

Kudos to you my friend, you made the meal look effortless!  Keep up the great work!

June 25, 2013 – Erin from O2’s on Jasper

We gather every Tuesday for a get together with about ten of our friends.  The reason we keep going back is simply for Erin!

She has always been able to keep up with all of our quirky requests and she does it with a smile!

Thanks Erin – we ❤ you!
