Stopped in for late supper, great service, food and drink selection especially Scotch. Very popular with people as even on a Sunday evening was full, but not excessively noisy.

I was in Saskatoon for a work conference, lots of days in a hotel. The event, the city, all a great experience. Now for our night at the Rook and Raven. It was a warm and welcoming atmosphere, similar to gastro pubs you'd find in other big cities. By all accounts (we were four) the food was well done. I... More

I've been here many times and never had a bad experience. I have observed that this place is fairly busy yet so many others on 2nd Ave ... are not. That says a lot I believe. Atmosphere, food and servers are consistently good.

We visit the rook and raven quite frequently and we never leave disappointed! The service and food/drinks at the rook and raven is impeccable. You must try their dilly Caesar and grapefruit margarita! Will definitely return.

Great little downtown Saskatoon resto - the food is upscale pub fair and not your usual offerings - great beer and scotch selection and the place has a vibrant university type atomosphere. Prices are moderate as well for a decent amount of food.

They have a nice selection of beers and scotches and the bartender could explain the differences between the choices. I tried two items off the menu and neither was that good. It was disappointing as people seem to rave about it. It is a very popular place in Saskatoon though and a lot of people love it.

Always good food that isn't your run-of-the-mill menu. Some unique menu items that also include gluten free and vegan options. The surf and turf is amazing value and always delicious! The staff is always friendly and is very good at explaining the menu. The menu is a smaller menu as everything is done to perfection. Try the curry burger! YUM!

The Rook and Raven has always been a go-to spot for lunch. The menu is short, sweet and to the point. It consists of a variety of options, all of which are well prepared and taste good. Service excellent, even when busy.
