"I find it frustrating when I read reviews about Characters, one of my favorite restaurants in Edmonton. There are quite a few complaints about the price of the food, which to me is very troubling and not even close to accurate. For you to sit at the table, pull out your smart phone, and calculate what it would cost you to pick up the same meal at a grocery store; is ludicrous.
At Characters, in case you haven’t noticed, you are in a beautiful building located in downtown Edmonton, and you didn’t have to pay for parking. When you enter the restaurant, you will see a beautiful set up, with the table spread out, so that you can have a conversation with someone at your table without being drowned out by someone 2 feet away from you. This building is not cheap to rent. Also look around, and see the number of staff (manager, chefs, servers, bartender, and dishwasher), all these people need to be paid a salary. If you go to restaurants long enough you will inevitably hear the sound of plates or glasses breaking, which essentially nullifies any profits from the meal that was on it, or even if it was empty.
You see, you are not only paying for the high quality of the ingredients, but also for the extra costs involved in running a complete restaurant. Enjoy your meal, relax, and have a glass of wine!"

"Because of personal health issues, I was unable to eat for over nine months. The first place that I went, when I was given the blessing to eat again, was Characters! That should tell you how amazing the restaurant truly is and how highly I think of the quality of food, service and all-around atmosphere. If for some reason I was faced with a situation where I could only have one last meal, I would be right back to Characters for that meal as well!"

"When I go to a fine dining restaurant, I am prepared to make it a celebration of food. In saying that, I make sure that I have 3 to 5 courses including dessert. I know that I'm getting the finest ingredients prepared by a professional chef, so I do not expect buffet sized portions. The servings at Characters are not typical of most fine dining restaurants in the US, because, in my opinion, you get much more on your plate. I found that after my appetizer, main course and dessert, I was quite full and satisfied. Had I gone with five courses I would've probably needed to bring some home. In closing, I should also mention that the food was incredible and that I will definitely be back."

"Probably the best lunch menu I have ever seen. The food was fantastic and I was able to have a great meal and still have time to get back to work. The lunch menu is second only to their dinner menu. I can't wait to get back to try all the options."
