I wish the restaurant wasI wish the restaurant was more lively. Perhaps we will give it one more try at a differant time of day.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat hidden gem of a restaurantGreat hidden gem of a restaurant amongst the many restaurants located on Stephen Ave. Loved the food had the lamb shoulder as my main entree very flavorful and the meat was really tender. Only thing I would suggest to change would be to have more variety of desserts to select from. Will definitely come back again.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique menu offerings, execellentUnique menu offerings, execellent presentation and friendly, just right service.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been wanting to eatI have been wanting to eat at "Home" for quite awhile and was not disappointed.
The cooking was amazing. We sat at the bar and very much enjoyed watching "Aeron" and the others do thier thing. Loved the pinnapple ravioli for dessert! Very imaginative!11/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDELICIOUS and CREATIVEI had the lamb burger with cherry compote and arugula on a freshly made roll, accompanied by tomato-fennel soup. The soup had a delicate sweet edge that nicely accented the acid from the tomatoes, and the texture was divine. There were sunflower seeds sprinkled in the soup that really enhanced the flavor and textural experience. The burger was juicy and tender and flavorful, and the cherries really set off the meatiness of the lamb. I couldn't have enjoyed it more. I will definitely return for more lunches and dinners!11/3/2013 12:00:00 AMimpeccable service greatimpeccable service

We had the Big Taste menu and nothing disappointed - the soup was delish and the burger with the bleu cheese was amazing. Hope some of these options come back onto the main menu as seasonal features as I'd love to have them again.8/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeI loved the atmosphere and the friendly, knowledgeable service. Amazing food! Wanted to try everything on the menu.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent again!Our 2nd time in 2 weeks, a new menu had launched, and with family instead of just me and my girlfriend me. Excellent again! We had a salad, 4 sharing plates, 3 entrees, and 2 deserts between the 4 of us, and left perfectly satisfied. Content but not stuffed. The chicken liver parfait, forest mushroom agnolotti, and smores being the highlights for me. the perfect balance of portion size, taste, and price.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingOur server was amazing it was extremely impressive that she had only been at that location for 4 days. The food was amazing and love the open concept of the kitchen. Its really neat to watch the food being prepped and made.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingHad a wonderful meal with friends. The tasting menu provided good portions and a wonderful variety. Service was attentive and very helpful with selections.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMChips and DipIf you love homemade chips with a warm dip this is for you!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and localI love finding restos that use local ingredients. Home tasting does just that. I had the parsnip soup to start and the bison tartar as my main. Everything was unbelievable. I eat gluten free and they had the softest and most delicious gluten free bread to go with my bison tartar. Our server was efficient, polite, and came around at the perfect time. I'm coming back every season!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingThe food and wine were amazing. I liked that it had the quality of a high end restaurant, but the price and ambience of a comfortable place to dine.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for a working lunchHadn't been here before so thought we'd give it a try. The staff made sure to accommodate a quick lunch hour which is sometimes hard to find at upscale Calgary restaurants. We sat at the bar and watched everything being prepared which made it tough to decide what we wanted as it all looked excellent. Went with the lamb burger which was by far the best I've ever had. Will definitely be back to give the other menu options a try...5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice dining experienceThis was not my first time at Home Tasting Room. I had gnocchi with mushrooms, scallops with pumpkin puree and lamb burger. Everything was done just right, burger was juicy and delicious. It's a very nice, cozy place with acceptable price range. I always recommend it to my friends and visit this restaurant for lunch or dinner quite often. It has never been a disappointment. Service was fast, friendly and very attentive.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely excellent!We went to celebrate a special occasion and Home delivered, 100%! Oysters to begin, scallops and tartare shared, arctic char and petite tenderloin to follow, with a chocolate moose to finish. Every bite perfect from beginning to end. Our server was also great, sincere and genuine, not false and nauseating like some can be. We've already booked again for in a couple of weeks time when family visit, and will be sure to be found on the patio in the summer.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst tryWe went to the tasting room by chance and were very pleasantly surprised. Possibly the best food in Calgary and an original menu. Professional fast service too5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely amazing!!Everything about this restaurant was fantastic right from the moment we entered the door. The service was excellent, the food was top notch!! No wonder this restaurant was rated top 10 in Calgary. We have dined at some of the other restaurants on the top 10 list and not sure why this one wasn't rated number 1. Certainly far superior then some of the other restaurants listed!!
Absolutely outstanding and will most definitely be going again!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBooked the restaurant forBooked the restaurant for a Mother's Day dinner and it did not disappoint. The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive, the food was great and the ambience was fine and modern. Would definitely go back for the gnocchi and bison tartar appetizers and the arctic char and lamb shoulder mains. Good find and highly recommended.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMunremarkable given the competitionHome isn't bad at all, it's just that given the competition in town it really doesn't distinguish itself.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing lunch, great for ladiesenjoyed the patio.move the cushions, not the breathable kind. Food is amazing, i recommend the oysters, then a sharing plate for each person at the table, but all share. Even the lunch menu is really good- had the chicken sandwich with 'greens' and the mac and cheese. both were delicious, and pricing is comparable to other places on 8th that are of lower quality. Great patio location, gets the sun where TD (Met, Earls) does not yet, as lower buildings, North side of the ave as well. Quieter area, but great for people watching. recommend getting there by 1130 to get the seat you want, as it gets more popular, might need to get there for 11.Our server disappeared, so waited 30 min for the bill until a manager showed up flustered?? strange.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI just had another great mealI just had another great meal here. Had frois gras sliders and bison tar tar for api, and both were fantastic.
Had the pulled pork sandwich as main and as simple as it looked, it had amazing flavour (could have used a more interesting bun/bread and presentation so it did not appear so pedestrian). Everyone else at the table really enjoyed their fare.
The server was below average. She came back and check on if she had remembered our orders correct, and they were completely wrong. I had a 1/4 of a beer left in the bottle and she cleared it from the table. She did not know much about the dishes they serve.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner before TheatreThis is a great place for dining prior to attending a performance at the Performing Arts Centre. The service was wonderful and the food was carefully prepared and extremely tasty. My first time at this restaurant but definitely not my last!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time for lunch, on theFirst time for lunch, on the list for place to bring my Wife for a date night for sure!3/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt has been a long time sinceIt has been a long time since we last visited a restaurant that has both an interesting and innovative menu with generally affordable prices. Home Tasting Room is indeed one of these gems. We haven't even scratched the surface of their menu choices and are sure to come back for more.2/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
