It's not very often I give a 5 out of 5 but Padrino's was awesome, absolutely incredible!!! Dinner with my sister after a very long day. The ambiance is nice - relaxing and comfortable.

This Resturant is attached to the Best Western Hotel. So nice after a long day of traveling to walk down the hall from your room for dinner and not have to drive any further. We had dinner here and the food was fantastic. The wait staff were very friendly and helpful.

This is my favourite restaurant! It rarely disappoints. The food is good and so is the service. I like that it is a local business too. On my last visit everything was on point! I had a chicken dish and my husband had the feature seafood pasta, both were so delicious. Our server was great and attentive. We will definitely... More

We went here for dinner while staying in Grande Prairie - really awesome food! Huge portions on the calzones and they are definitely big enough for two! Wait staff was okay - place fills up so be sure to make reservations (they don't just give away booths, even though they're empty the entire 1.5 hour stay we were here.)

Thank jairme11
Management response:

Hi Jairme11, Thank you for taking the time to review Padrino's! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your meal. And yes, we can fill up pretty quickly so reservations are definitely recommended to avoid disappointment. Our only 3 full booths are usually the first to go. See you again soon! More

This is a decent place for Grande Prairie. I have dined with my family a few times and we number seven bodies from 9-64. It is kid friendly (a must for us) and the servers are very good with them. We have always left happy.

This restaurant is located within the Best Western Hotel. I've eaten here about a dozen times and have been very satisified each time. I try to choose something different each visit, like the garlic prawns or the lamb. I love to share so we usually order a couple of applies and a salad before the main course. A good wine... More

Thanks from the start. We enjoyed the service and the food. The atmosphere was warm. We felt very comfortable and the food only complimented that feeling. Maybe the only advice I would give, bigger portions. That is all. Great job thanks so much. Bryan from Ontario.
