Diner Reviews
  • "We went for an early dinner on August 22. We were in and out within 65 minutes. We had two courses. Was our table booked after us? Our appetizers came within minutes of ordering and the calamari was okay- nothing special. Our entrees came 5 minutes later. I felt like I was at earls but not as rushed!"

  • "I decided to take my boyfriend here for a birthday dinner mid-wid. While the atmosphere was pleasant, the service appropriate, the food was just good. We expected the food to be the highlight, but it nothing special...unfortunately."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "We had a great meal and the service was first rate. We did send back our dessert. The merangue had a metal taste to it and for $10, one small stick of rhubarb with a bit of compote was not worth it."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Our night was very enjoyable. For this quality of a restaurant, the service was not up to par. The server was very pleasant but just felt like we had to keep asking for things. For example we waited about 5 minutes when we first arrived, we did order drinks before our meal, but did not have a change to to finish them and order any wine before our appetizers arrived and had to keep asking to have our water glasses filled. We were not upset or anything like that, just thought the server should have been paid more attention to detail."

  • "Went to Alloy for a birthday dinner based on a review that was posted about the restaurant. Let me tell you, it didn't disappoint. Service was prompt, friendly, and attentive to our needs without being overbearing. The food was spectacular, beginning with naan bread served with hummus and an assortment of olives, which was simply to die for. The Main courses through the table were varied, but not a single person had anything but "mmm!" when it came to the quality of their meal. Finally when it came time for desert, they offered a fabulous selection of simple but delectable dishes that will excite your palate and break from the routine series of cakes, pies and creme brulee that seem to dominate most menus. An absolute must go."

  • "I had been looking forward to trying Alloy for months and I had specifically chosen it for a celebratory dinner - my expectations were too high it seems. The location was more of a turn-off than I thought it would be (who puts a fancy restaurant in an industrial area?). The food was pretty good, but seemed a bit old-fashioned and over-priced for the quality. The biggest disappointment was the service. Our server was awkward, inefficient, and certainly not polished. For example, we had to specifically ask (twice!) for our completely empty water glasses to be refilled - basics like this shouldn't be missed. It unfortunately wasn't the celebratory dinner I had been looking forward to. I did enjoy the beautiful patio though."

  • "We went to celebrate a birthday, and with five people, its quite amazing that there was nothing but raves for every bit of food and drinks we ordered. Our server was perfectly attentive without being intrusive. All in all a superior experience."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Alloy was an okay restaurant. The food was quite tasty, but the portions were small. The dessert we ordered was quite poor (rhubarb something). The prices were too high in comparison to other similar restaurants versus quality/atmosphere/portion. They also don't share nutritional information on what they serve. It wasn't a bad place, but I don't think the value is there for a return trip."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "WE tried Alloy when it first opened about 6 years ago and I really loved it and how it it seems odd outside but really nice inside! I love the food and the whole experience. This time we sat outside and the service was awesome! And the atmosphere was great! I would definitely come back again!"
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Saturday August 9 at 730 pm. The gnocchi , tuna appetizers were both very good however the pork belly is excellent . The short rib was excellent and the halibut was very good but not their best dish. As always the food is presented beautifully and the service is very good . Espresso was decent which is rare in Calgary restaurants ."

  • "We have been to Alloy several times and were always thrilled with the tasty gourmet food both at lunch and dinner. We were celebrating a special occasion and decided to treat ourselves to Alloy. The appetizers were very good and we particularly enjoyed the gnocchi. We were really looking forward to the main course but it was a bit disappointing. The food was good and cooked well but it was nothing special and certainly not a good value for the prices charged. I had the halibut and it was moist but really was bland and I decided to add salt to try to enhance the taste. My friend had chicken and said it was 'fine' but nothing special. Perhaps Alloy had been so great in the past that we had high expectations."

  • "I have never wrote a review before but I was prompted after our very disappointing experience. Our night began with a very unfriendly hostess. When our waitress came she didn't explain anything well as far as their features for the night. She never made it over to ask how anything was until we were done. We sat with empty drinks and empty plates as she passed by us numerous times. It was unfortunate because the food was very good and the restaurant is nicely done. It would have been a lovely evening if it wasn't for the awful service."

  • "I have dined at Alloy 3 times now and luv it. Everything about it is very appealing. The white decor feels very clean. We had a server, Jason, who was so passionate about all the different food choices. Our choices were excellent and the serving sizes were just right"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Don't be fooled by the rather industrial location, the food is excellent. The crab cake appetizer was delicious and the tuna tacos were terrific. My dining partner also enjoyed her beet salad. The service was just the right amount of attentiveness. A very enjoyable expericence overall."

  • "Good service, good food, although a slightly limited menu, very well priced meal. Overall a great value for the dollar. Nice wine selection by the glass (tough to find usually) and meals were well presented, out very fast and hot. Great patio for dining. If your looking for a nice romantic evening not the place as alloy sports a very open concept, but works well otherwise. Sparse seating on the patio helped offer a bit more privacy. Definitely has that "On display" feel. A few more plants on the patio between tables would definitely improve the ambience although the surroundings were nice."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Food and Service were very good. We felt the location of the table we were given was just ok!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Patio was not well cared for, looked rather sad and pathetic. Service was poor, waitress had no personality and not one smile. Expected more and was disappointed."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Beautiful restaurant. The food was good, but very little of it! We have two teenage boys who left hungry. The food was beautifully presented, but the plates were half full. We've been to many other restaurants with similar price points which offer better service, fabulous food and full plates! We will not return."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The pita bread with the hummus and olives were delicious. The fish were well cooked and just made perfectly. Highly recommend the halibut!"

  • "As always this place was amazing! Never disappointed."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Had a great meal with excellent recommendations from our server including wine and dessert. I would absolutely recommend this to anybody who wants to have a great meal and really enjoy the service. The inside of the restaurant was not at all what I expected. The outside is almost industrial but as soon as you walk in you enter a clean, open, retro-esque space. Lots of room between tables, which made it great for conversation."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We have enjoyed Alloy many times and have always found the service and food to be good. This time was no exception... but the server we had was a bit snippy and condescending. We shifted chairs around a bit to accommodate our party of five and he made a comment that was unbecoming of a server when he saw what we had done. It really put us off and was an underlying theme all evening."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Alloy's patio is one of the best in Calgary. The food and service was outstanding with an impressive wine list."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Everything very pleasant but both of us found our main course (the meat and some of the vegetables) way too salty. That being said, we had a lovely dinner & will go again, we'll just ask for them to cut out say 3/4 of the salt they put on our mains!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "I always like sitting in this restaurant. great ambiance. It always seems to have a lot of relaxed trendy business people dinning. (make sure you know the license plate number of your dark C300 as there were 8 of them in the parking lot the other day). they have some great dishes (lobster sandwich) and some average dishes (the curry)."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "3 of us ordered Lamb Chops, one plate was cold and the other 2 were just warm. the manager removed these 3 plates, replentished all of our wine while we waited for new orders which had better, meatier chops, hot and what should have been served up in the first place."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Alloy has one of the best patios in YYC. It's secluded, with shade trees and completely private. Except for the occasional train you would never know you are in the city. Food is good, service as well. Parking outstanding, which is a real plus as YYC becomes more challenged for DT parking."

  • "We went to Alloy on Sunday evening to celebrate our 8th anniversary. Sitting out on the patio, it was quiet with the water feature in the background. As always the food was excellent and we enjoyed our lovely dinner out."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "The quality of the food, preparation and presentation of our meals was very good. We both had a salad, entree and dessert but were left feeling not quite sated - perhaps we should have ordered an appetizer as well. My caveat for recommending Alloy centres on the portion size of our orders - they are quite small. My recommendation to someone would be not to go there if you are hungry but rather for a lighter fare. While the wine menu is extensive, the dinner menu is a little skimpy on selections."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The ambiance was really great, the only downside would be the location. We ordered Beef short ribs and pacific halibut, the beef just melted into the mouth was really great...the halibut was also good but not better than the beef."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Very pricy for the food quality. I had the halibut and the dish was flavorless and watery. Given their location is not great for drive by traffic, they need to improve their food quality significantly to make this more of a destination."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We went out for my best friends birthday. Alloy is fairly pricy, we couldn't do that often. But the food was exquisite, it's nicely decorated, and we had a lovely time. Great for a special occasion."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The food was amazing. The beef tenderloin melted in my mouth. The cocktails were refreshing and playful. The staff was wonderful."
