Fine-dining steakhouse in the Edmonton ICE District

Let’s be clear — this is not your father’s steakhouse. Granted, there is no shortage of shrimp cocktail, wedge salad or creamed spinach. But Braven, led by Canada’s award-winning Chef Anthony Walsh, is a new breed of steakhouse —a force to be reckoned with. Merging unfussy, old-school sensibilities with modern grace and style, Chef Walsh and his brigade of cooks are committed to preparing each dish to perfection.

We take our love affair with meat seriously. We are proud to source the best beef Alberta has to offer — from delicate filet mignon to handsome rib eye to an epic chuck cheeseburger. Going beyond those steakhouse staples, we also offer a luxurious raw bar selection, irresistible seafood and decadent vegetable sides — all designed with maximum indulgence in mind. 

Bold and unapologetic in our carnivorous spirit, our dining room is clad with a rich colour palette, luxe copper and bronze accents, and jewel-tone upholstery and fabric. The space is a riot of texture: studded chairs, hanging plants and dark woods all combine for an exuberant effect. A striking taxidermy wall and the open kitchen’s charcoal grill — complete with live fuel and flames — give the setting an additional layer of drama. As if we needed anymore theatrics…
