I arrived 30 min before my friend and was not even talked to except by the host who sat me. Once my friend arrived we waited another 20 min until I asked for someone to serve us. I enjoyed my dish, my friend was less than impressed... The bad service left a bad taste in my mouth, we will not be back.

food was delicious but portions were a little small for the price a few more veggies on the plate would have been nice

This was a disappointing dining experience for us. I spent ten years working in one of the finest restaurants in Salt Lake City, Utah so my knowledge of food and service is one of experience. We were seated near the bar, where, for the first half hour we endured the constant yelling and barking instructions by the chef that night. I finally expressed my unhappiness and it toned down briefly. The whole evening was very tense. We did not feel this was a relaxed dining experience at all. The cost of the appetizer $19 for one exceptionally small piece of lobster was outrageous! Overall everything was overpriced and not well accompanied by enough either vegetable or starch.

As avid fine-diners and one of the two of us a culinary arts student at NAIT and a cook at a local fine dining restaurant, I feel like we have an opinion on something we know about. To begin we were presented with a pureed pumpkin and creamed cheese amuse bouche. The cheese was slightly overpowering and the pumpkin seeds that topped it were very salty. This unfortunately ruined the rest of the flavour which would have otherwise been divine. We felt the scallop appetizer was the best part of the meal, although we weren't impressed with that two scallops were halved to make it look like four. $16.00 seemed steep for the two tasty, but satisfactory scallops (topped with smoked bacon and shaved truffle). The entrees lacked any starch or vegetable, unless you can consider half of a miniature eggplant-like item a vegetable. The duck breast and canoli was quite delicious. But the sable fish really needed the caviar and sea asparagus for flavour; but the portion was smaller than my dessert. The pineapple tart was sweet at best and lived up to it's description unlike the coconut "salad" that accompanied it. The molecular gastronomy attempt was foolish as well as the choice of mature coconut pieces over young coconut. The peanut butter cheesecake was creative in design as well as the mini "sliders" that sat nearby, but had no connection with the mound of "cheesecake" usually a flavour of creamy cheese is noticed when eating a cheesecake, however, only a starchy texture could be discerned. Could this also be a failed attempt at using molecular gastronomy in order to have the piped mound hold it's form? The entire dessert tasted very artificial and won points only in plating. The service was superb. We were welcome with warmth and waited on with sweet politeness. We never felt overwhelmed or forgotten about. All the front of house staff were incredible! Because we frequently dine at high end restaurants both in Edmonton and across Canada, we were excited to spend a birthday celebration at Bistro La Persaud. We had read sensational reviews and had told our friends, families and co-workers of the lovely evening we had planned. We were thoroughly disappointed to have to explain our dissatisfaction with the Bistro when we were subsequently asked how our experience was. A strong restaurant earns it's reputation not only by it's food but by it's service. Although, Bistro La Persaud has outstanding service, their mediocre-at-best food will not be bringing us, or any of our friends, families or co-workers back.

Good food. Older French waitress was horrible. Worst service I have had in a longtime. She suggested a ifferent wine to us and told me I would not notice a difference. Also had no clue about some of the dishes.

Very good evening. Great food and nice ambiance. However I was looking for the Toffee sticky desert that you featured in the Edmonton Journal but apparently it was only made for the article. I was disappointed with that.

Great staff but I was still hungry when I left. Portions are too darn small for what you pay for your food! Bread was dry and hard as well!
