Chef's Table at The Kensington Riverside Inn
a great dining experienceCuisine well and artfully prepared, a bottle of beaujolais, interested staff and a quiet atmosphere created an exceptional evening. One left feeling that not only had it been a good experience - you had also saved the price of a ticket to Nice.11/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had been hoping to tryWe had been hoping to try the Riverside Inn for some time but it was either booked or we would go forget to make reservation so when we seen that the restaurant was included in tthe `Foodies Unite, Calgary's Big Taste Festival we made reservations early and were able to get in. I had lived in the district for years and was quite pleased when the Inn was built and all reviews I had from my friends were very positive except the price. By ordering during the Big Taste Festival, a five course meal waas $85, therefore we felt very reasonable. However, the portions were small and most not to our perference so in retrospect, we should have ordered off the menu. Will give it another try as service was outstanding and our waiter was very helpful.8/3/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect touchWe were greeted at the door and then the service was impeccable and knowledgable throughout the meal. He was courteous in asking about dietary restrictions and was very patient if asked to repeat himself.
Beautiful choice of flavors in the tasting and very well done - I tasted a few things that I would not have otherwise tried. My favorites was the first and second courses.
I would definetly go back! It was my 5th Anniversary (although I didn't say anything) but the food, service and the option to be able to see the kitchen was more than I could ask for. A fantastic dinner for a special night.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMspecial occasion made specialThis was one of the best meals I've ever had...ever! Timing, taste and service were superb. I would absolutely recommend Chef's Table and will return...hopefully frequently.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing foodThe food here was amazing, service was great, drinks were awesome - it's more expensive than your average dinner on the town although definately worth it! Great intimate setting - loved the smaller feel. A must to try or come back again to.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding DinnerThis restaurant outshines any place I've ever eaten at. The quality of the food and attention to detail is exquisite. What's notable about the food that is prepared is the mix of flavours that accompany each dish, each standing out and not blended together. This is some place I will definitely go to regularly.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAn ExperienceThe tasting menu is something everyone should be able to experience just once. Terrific flavours paired with the perfect wine!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional eveningThis was an exceptional evening at Chef's Table. Intricately executed tasting, and the wines were perfectly matched. The new wine list is perfect, and really stands out from most places in Calgary. Highly recommended.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional!One of the best dining experiences ever! The food was to die for and our server was awesome. Each dish is like a work of art, it was almost a shame to eat it. I would highly highly recommend this restaurant!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSommelier extroardinaireWe ordered the tasting menu with the premium wine pairings. It was pure harmony, orchestrated by the most knowledgeable sommelier in Calgary. Great dining experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome food awesome serviceThis place is a total gem! Our server John was entertaining and very attentive to our needs. The chefs tasting menu is an incredible choice if you aren't short on time. The drink menu is wonderful, and the food is delicious. The only negatives I can see is the portion sizes are expectedly on the smaller side and the location can't seat larger parties.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing. Thank youThe food and service at Chef's Table is so good, we went for a chef's tasting with pairings two nights in a row! Where else in Calgary would you dare to do that - answer is very very few if any. Chef Ryan creates his dishes as an artist, with a flavour profile worthy of one of Calgary's best restaurants.
Amazing food. Amazing service. When you go, ask for Ryan - he is Calgary's top server.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingThe food and service at Chef's Table is so good, we went for a chef's tasting with pairings two nights in a row!
