Fusion Cafe

Reviewed By Robyn P

Absolutely horrible. Ordered Delivery from here and there was a staple cooked into our ginger beer. When we called the restaurant, they tried to tell us it was the Delivery companies fault. When we told them the staple was actually cooked into the food, they wanted proof so we sent them photos. We were told we could get a replacement order but we just wanted our money back. They told us they needed to talk to the kitchen. We then waited half an hour for a call back and when we received it, we were told that it wasn't a staple, it was actually a piece from a brush they use to clean the grill. Both my husband and I have worked in restaurants, we know the difference between staples and steel brush pieces. They then told us they would try to get in touch with the Delivery company so they could come back to collect the food and give us our refund. I'm not sure why they're fighting us so hard in giving us our money back but I can definitely say I will never order from here again and I highly advise you to order from somewhere else to.

Original Joe's

Reviewed By Jeri G

While I do still enjoy this restaurant I also don’t go here near as much as I used to. They changed up the menu and they took away the best steak salad. Also it is not a Family place so forget about going here if you have kids; adults only.

Blue Dragon Fine Thai & Cambodian Cuisine

Reviewed By EternallyStone

A quant spot to grab a meal in the northern industrial sector of Red Deer. My Wife and myself always stick to getting the dragon bowl when feeling like something light to eat, it tastes fresh and the ingredients are quality. We defiantly have to get around to trying some of there other dishes. We do always comment that the interior needs updating as it is very unsavoury to sit in and use the odd washroom entry as you enter the place. So to summarize I'd say the food is ok however the place aesthetically needs help.

It's All Greek To Me

Reviewed By Joyce L - Alberta

Not good the lamb shank was VERY DRY and the service was poor. We heard other customers asking for a cook and her response was he isn't here any moe so if this king that is why the quality has gone down to bad.

Jose Jose

Reviewed By Princessa77 - Calgary, Canada

We were passing through Red Deer and decided to stop for lunch. The best decision we made that day was to go to Jose Jose. It's a relatively small restaurant decorated Mexican. It was charming. The portions are big and delicious. I had the super burrito and my husband had the enchiladas. Both were excellent and the prices were reasonable, especially considering the portions. If you like Mexican I would recommend you give this a try.

We started with an order of Coconut Prawns.... I will say that these Coconut Prawns with mango mustard sauce were some of the best I have ever tasted.
The occasion was Valentine's Day. The Boulevard Restaurant had a special Valentine menu planned. We were not sure at first if this is what we wanted, but when we were finished feasting - were we ever glad we tried their special.
The appetizer was shrimp and scallop mushrooms in a white wine cream sauce - amazing. To follow a salad with all fresh ingredients and beet drizzle - amazing. Our entree was beef tenderloin - just right M/R, braised pork cheeks - very good - fresh veggies and smoked mashed potatoes - WOW! By this time we were stuffed. The portions served were very generous. Dessert was chocolate and fruit fusion - with fresh raspberries on top. The cost for the Valentine special was $58.00 per person. We felt that this was an excellent value.
Everything from the presentation to the beet drizzle was out standing. Each bit was filled with amazing flavors. The salad and veggies on our plates were fresh and inviting. Our beef tenderloin done perfectly.
We had visited the Boulevard Restaurant Christmas Day - again the dinner was delicious. You will need to book ahead of time for these special occasions as they fill up very quickly. They do have upcoming events planned throughout the year - "Taste the World" featuring various countries.
This restaurant has a top rated chef - I would encourage you to read about him. Emmanuel did come to our table to greet us and inquired how everything was tasting.
The restaurant is located in the Holiday Inn - Gasoline Alley - north bound. When you first walk into the hotel you will wonder if you are in the right place. To your right is the pool and the hotel registration desk to the left. I really felt that the restaurant lacked atmosphere. Some color to the interior decor would help to make it more appealing. I also would like to hear some soft music in the back ground.
Over all this is a wonderful place to dine and we will be back.

Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria

Famoso is a casual pizzeria serving authentic Neapolitan pizzas made with high quality ingredients in a domed Italian oven. Ideal for a quick lunch or a night out. Enjoy with wine, cocktails and beer.

Reviewed By RebelsFan - Alberta, Canada

We had heard very good things about the pizza so decided to give it a try. Well it did not disappoint. This was one of the best pizzas I have had in Red Deer. The ladies had the mac and cheese and they enjoyed it as well. Matching the quality of the food was the quality of the service and the ownership. Our server was friendly, helpful, and attentive. She was training another server at the same time and the server in training will do very well if she follows our servers lead. To top off our experience was a visit by one of the owners who had heard we were first time visitors and wanted to see how we enjoyed our visit. That gesture speaks volumes on how much this place values the customer. Great food. Great atmosphere. Great Service. Great management.
We will return and tell friends. Well done Famoso !
