Drove in from out of town to join other family for a multi birthday celebration meal and even though it was 2 hours before closing, service and food were both excellent. Hadn't been here in a year but was glad we made the choice again.

i spent time typing a review and it disappeared so here we go again ..this place is a 10 out of 10 for decor best i have seen but we were hungry !! i ordered the chicken soup and sweet potato fries for appetizers which i love and order everywhere i can ...the soup was broth with real chicken pieces that were sparce...things to add in the soup bar were plenty but it still was not that good. After the response i got from my complaint about the fries i said nothing about the soup but we did not eat it ...i know nasty fries when i see them these were really dark brown ..you could see the oil oozing and limp with grease dripping on your hands ..No thanks and did not appreciate condescending waitress "well they are fried" the coconut shrimp and wings looked the same..dark brown and greasy nasty greasy like the oil in fryer not changed for many moons ? so now the meals the burritos looked good and were reported to be pretty good but not enough sauce and pay extra for each tiny cup otherwise dry ...my 21.00 chicken breast honeyed rum sauce meal was terrible...i know cheap, thin, dry chicken patties when you see them that are not entirely chicken and mostly fillers when it is advertised as chicken breast was really maddening and i take exception to restaurants who use fake chicken with a questionable sauce that was not good and charge you high prices for poor quality meat ...its served with a spicy mango salad when i told the waitress i cant eat spice and another condescending annoyed reply ..so i ate refried beans and rice for 21.00 and took the rest home to others who like spice and the meat for the cats outside who will eat anything LOL ..Well i got more than i paid for thats for sure cause 30 minutes later that tell tale rumbling in your gut, nausea and then the runs for hours on end made a 3 hour drive home agonizing ...i am finally over it by lunch today but 24 ours of sitting on a toilet would never convince me to ever eat here again ...Too Risky !!! PS if you are brave enough to eat here be careful not to park in front of this little store attached to the restaurant ..obviously they need better signs cause it is confusing and parking is at a minimal anyways ..the lady went ape about it so beware not a nice way to start dining experience so start to finish is a total fail sorry to say

Dining at the Saskatoon Station Place is a historical step into the past where people from all over the world have come to enjoy our hospitality, as well as our fantastic cuisine created by our Master Chefs! The doors were first opened in November of 1984 by the Arvanitis Brothers, who created the thematic railroad concept of this unique and stylish establishment. The entire design of the building and dining cars dates back to the early 1800's. You will notice throughout the restaurant a number of priceless heirlooms that a renowned antique dealer from Toronto collected over a six year period. In 2004, our 20th anniversary, the building was expanded. A larger, more elegant entrance and foyer were constructed to offer added comfort to our arriving and departing patrons. A new wine cellar to the left of the foyer displays our extensive selection of domestic and imported wines. As our guest approach the main entrance they can see on of many of the restaurant's timeless possessions ~ an authentic English gas street lamp from the 1880's, which has now been converted to electricity. Next, the main entrance doors, which are antiques as well, dating back to the 1800's and are adorned by door handles that once graced the entrance of the Queen's Hotel in Montreal. The lobby offers a good vantage point for guests to observe many of our beautiful antiques. The grand staircase leading to the upper floor boasts an authentic banister and posts originally from New York. To the left of the staircase one can see an old, wooden phone booth of the same origin. Straight ahead on the main floor, in the middle of the dining room, a genuine English street clock, also from the 1880's, is a beautiful example of the Victorian era it belongs to. Notable are the many light fixtures suspended from the ceiling in this part of the building, all of which are very old. The copper and gold chandelier just past the foyer bears a stamp of authenticity dating this piece to the 19th century. Immediately behind this clock there is another chandelier made of pewter which was originally gas operated and has 16 arms that have valves once used to turn on and off the gas supply. To the left hangs a large, ornate mirror which graced the wall of many homes throughout Europe before arriving here. It is a wonderful piece, crafted in the 1700's, and although its origins were traced to Italy, is known that later on, this lovely piece hung in the noble homes of English and Scottish aristocrats. On the Southwest wall one can see another interesting piece ~ a symbolically historical English crest and a genuine 1800's work of art. The design itself came from a ball held for Queen Victoria. Perhaps most impressive of all, are the C.N.R. dining cars that are annexed to the building and offer diners a real glimpse into the past. One can imagine the noble and wealthy travelers that dined in these over a century ago. The benches in the lounge dining car are the original from the C.N.R. Pullman Luxury Dining Cars. It is worth noticing the various authentic fixtures that accent the decor of the cars, such as the colorful stained glass window and the solid brass hat racks and molded table legs. One of our most prized antiques is located in the upper dining room ~ a genuine, hand crafted Tiffany light fixture from the 1800's. This rare treasure is suspended from the ceiling and adds colorful splendor to the entire upper floor. Also upstairs, there are a number of interesting wall hangings. One is of the "Last Spike". This picture portrays the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad which took place between North Dakota and Montana in July of 1869. Another interesting print is an original map of the CP rail line used during the 1800's. The Station Place lounge is in itself an interesting experience. As one walks into the lounge area to the the left one sees the attached railway car and to the right a magnificent bar that is make of hand carved mahogany wood and stand 20 feet high and 28 feet long. Beautiful stained glass and an antique Italian marble countertop enhance the bar's elegance. The area is brilliantly lit by four antique chandeliers, which were brought from New York. Just past the bar is the games room, where modern meets old. Here patrons can enjoy their favorite Television events on a plasma screen Television, as well as games of chance. Thank you for your interest and patronage, and we hope to be serving you on our 40th Anniversary
I went her for a steak dinner as I was tired of going to the same places and hadn't been here for a while. I was pleasantly surprised to have a fantastic top sirloin steak at a reasonable price and cooked exactly the way I wanted it. The rest of the meal was just as good. Staff very friendly and overall a great experience.

Simple. Local. Delicious. We envision a place where we belong, where our actions nurture the environment and our food sources, where people thrive, craftsmanship and traditions flourish, a place where the mind can rest and wander. We hope that we can show you the world through our eyes while you are here in our care.
Had a business lunch here and it was fantastic. The decor and atmosphere is bright and clean. The service we friendly and prompt. The menu isn't too large but still plenty of delicious items to chose from. They highlight local pairings which is awesome. They do have lunch specials and I tried the quiche with soup and Saskatoon Berry lemonade. It was very tasty! I would recommend this place and visit again.

Breakfast restaurant in the same building as Flint Saloon in the evenings
These folks do breakfast the way it ought to be done.
Fresh ingredients, incentive recipes that are riffs on classic dishes, very personable service, and a wonderful atmosphere.
They offer espresso drinks that are fairly good. They couldn't brag about being a top notch coffee house, but they still hit the spot. Their menu selections are locally sourced and excellently assembled.
All around a really remarkable little joint.

4 of us went for supper her and found the menu had something for everyone and the service was top notch. Scotch eggs were a great appetizer followed by mac and cheese with a twist and others had great pasta and chicken. Also good beer on tap and cold.

My wife and a bunch of friends found Hudsons just down the street from our hotel after the last day of this year's Rock the River music festival in Saskatoon. The 1st restaurant we went to after the concert ended Sunday night (which was right across the street from the concert venue), had already closed their kitchen & told us it was also last call for drinks. That not working for our group took us a block down to Hudsons which despite being VERY busy, they were able to accommodate the 12 of us at 2 adjacent tables. Our drinks came quite quickly but our food choices took awhile due to how busy the kitchen was. Our server gave us a heads up about the possible delay so we knew from the get go we weren't going to eat & get out quickly. When our food was delivered (mine the Traditional Chicken Wings & my wife - Hola Quesadilla), we found the food to be fresh, warm & very tasty. The staff were quite attentive to all of us & we were overall pleased with the service, food and ambiance. Too bad for that 1st restaurant we went to because our group dropped around $800 all together. So with us and the other who we're turned away, they lost out big time. So, save yourself the disappointment of going to the restaurant across from the Bessborough Hotel and walk the short block down to Hudsons for a good meal. We're all glad we did!!

Taverna Italian Kitchen is nestled in Saskatoon's historic downtown core within walking distance of a number of major hotels in the renowned entertainment district. The building was originally a grocery store dating back to 1907. In 1969, Taverna started serving fantastic authentic Italian dishes in this charming setting.
Popped in for a nice Saturday lunch while touring the downtown area. As it was mid-afternoon it was fairly quiet but that didn't stop us from having an absolutely lovely lunch.
Great service, delicious food, and the price was very reasonable. I'd definitely go back when in the area. Wonderful experience.
