Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent food and an excellent server, friendly and timely."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "A comfortable place to entertain clients or family. Great service. However, at the time I visited there wasn't an actual warm meal option for a Celiac that I could select from the menu. Typical choice of "salad with no dressing." I'm one of those people who doesn't want to be one of "those" people asking about every single ingredient! (If that makes any sense, ha ha!) I would come again, in spite of that."

  • "We went to this restaurant with a group of people on Tuesday evening. The service was great, and Andrew did a splendid job providing service. We all enjoyed the meal very much, and left very satisfied. It was the first time at the Redwater Grill for the other 4 people in our group, and they said they would definitely return."

  • "My sister and I ordered the Kale Citrus salad... it was just a chopped bunch of kale with oil on it Very disappointing."

  • "We enjoyed another great dining experience at this restaurant. Andrew took good care of us and Becca delivered a special treat that made us feel quite at home. We enjoy this restaurant and highly recommend it. The food is great, but the service is outstanding."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The angus roast beef boneless rib was spectacular. It was juicy and tender and the vegetable accompaniment was prepared very well. Overall a great meal with a great price. The bison burger was also a great pick. The waitress was also very friendly and the atmosphere was baby friendly"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Once we got seated at our table we had to wait a long time before we finally flagged someone down for menus. The chairs in the area inside but by the patio just before you got in are terrible and are in dire need of fixing. My lunch companion and I sat down and nearly fell through the chair. Was uncomfortable for the whole time I was there. The food was very good though and I will be back but recommend a booth instead of table in the back."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "No doubt, the service is great and so is the food, but the portions seem small and it is quite pricey. If you don't mind paying $20 for a small bowl of pasta or salad, I would recommend the restaurant."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Another great experience for us at this restaurant. Jessie did a great job with our service, and it was nice to have a visit from Rebecca and Andrew. They make us feel right at home. Food was excellent, too!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "I had a lunch meeting at the Rustic Redwater Grill in Bow Valley Square and the service was great. It was 1 o'clock and they ad run out of the menu item tat I had picked but I went with lasagna and it was great. One fellow had a salad ad the other a noodle dish. The waitress was great and very attentive. She even joked around with us and fixed our rocking horse table herself."

  • "Server was very rude to our Asian friend with heavy accent. Food was ok."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Was seated in the Bar area which was VERY noisy. Next time would ask to be seasted arond the corner."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "We luckily did not sit in the lounge. But the dinning room was just as noisey and the chairs need to have the seats refilled as I weigh 125 and still sunk too low and uncomfortable in them."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Great service, ambiance and food. We'll be back on another occasion."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "Had a great lunch meeting at Redwater. The food was tasty and arrived quickly. Our waitress, Toni, was friendly and informative. Be sure to arrive a little earlier for lunch or you probably won't get a table. (That fact speaks for itself!)"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "We went here with my sister and her husband. 3 of us had steak and my sister had the tuna. The steaks were done perfectly as was the tuna. Our waiter Andrew was excellent. The ambiance is nice and relaxing"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We came here as a group celebrating 2 birthdays. The menu and wine prices are high compared to other restaurants of the same caliber, but worth it for a celebration. The "Wines by the Glass" list has lots of choices and something for every wine drinker. The sweet potato fries appetizer is a great value. Our server was excellent and very attentive to all of us. We did have a broken chair at our table but thankfully we didn't need it in the end. The atmosphere also fits for a romantic dinner. I'd go back, but only once in awhile when I feel like splurging!"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Redwater on 6th Avenue is a great place to get away from the downtown hussle and relax in a great setting. Food was great and the service tip-top."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "It was our first time to visit this downtown location and we were not disappointed. My friend who eats gluten free enjoyed her food and the service was good. If we wouldn't have to go back to work, we could have easily gotten wine from their extensive list but mauve we can do that sometime soon!"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "We went for an early lunch and it was nice and quiet. Great for conversations."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The service we received at Redwater during our lunch was excellent! Right from the greeting at the door we were made to feel welcome. Ruby, our server, was an absolute darling and the other wait staff were very efficient in ensuring the dirty dishes were removed quickly and our needs were met. The food was great with lots of selection on the menu and the portion are more than adequate. "
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "I have found Redwater to be consistently good with their food and service. The pricing is mid range. I am a particular diner and Redwater is my standard "go to" where I know what to expect."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "I was greeted with a smile and taken right to my reserved table. The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I had the featured special and it was mouth watering. Great experience! I will be back"
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "Back again to Red Water where the food is consistently good and the service is better than the majority of places downtown. This is my go-to place in the downtown core."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Enjoy going here for lunch.Had the romaine salad with Ahi tuna on top. Delisious! Try and get the restaurant side if you want a little more quiet."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "I really enjoy this restaurant - the food and service has been excellent the last couple times I've been there (in the past couple months). I know what to expect here and the service is always friendly. "
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "The food and service at lunch were excellent, but the noise level made it difficult to have a conversation. We sat at a table, which seemed significantly noisier than a previous visit where we sat in a booth. However, the food had improved this time. The French onion soup was tasty and not too salty, and the C.A.B steak sandwich was tender and juicy. The crab cakes were also delicious! The service was prompt, too -- we were in at 12:00 and out by 1:00, which is great for a work lunch and rare in downtown Calgary."
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "Went for a birthday/retirement lunch. Food as always was fantastic but the staff are even better!"
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Highly enjoyed my experience last night at Redwater. Our server Becca made every effort to make our dining experience pleasing. And it was that. I'll surely return sometime soon. "
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Had a great time! Really enjoyed the lunch special: brisket with corn breadk :)"
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Great for a work lunch, but make reservations far in advance. It can be hard to get a table at lunch time without a reservation. The beet salad is the best!"
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "We had a very nice evening meal, with service provided by Andrew. All the staff were friendly, and there was a special touch that welcomed up on our arrival. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "My husband and I decided to dine at the Redwater Bow Valley location for a well deserved meal out 10 days into our detox. We were able to enjoy the salmon/vegetable dish - it was superb - we wanted to lick our plates!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Weekday lunch time noticed the waitress was more interested in chatting with the other waiters than serving. Had the manager bring me water instead and waited a long while to get the bill also. Something I normally expect from Moxies. "
    Dined on 7/25/2013
  • "Dined at Redwater Grille last week to welcome someone new to our group at work. Conveniently accessibly via the Plus 15, it was a good choice given the cold, rainy weather outside. This good choice was further substantiated by the food. We all greatly enjoyed our meals. I'll only speak for myself in saying that the salmon I ordered was cooked perfectly and sat atop a nicely seasoned vegetable quinoa. I was pleased that the kitchen was able to prepare this entree for me without its usual corn accompaniment (as I have a corn allergy). The service was prompt and unobtrusive."
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "I love beets but wasn't quite sure it would be enough to keep me going through the day so added prawns. Not required at all. While a bit heavy on the dressing the beets and goat cheese was great and the greens were fresh. I couldn't finish it all. We were seated quickly and plates came out quickly. Usually its touch and go to get out of any downtown Calgary restaurant in under an hour for lunch. We got there at 11:45 and we done by 12:30 and had the rest of the time to really catch up on what was going on in each others shops. Worked out perfectly."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "The noise level is my only issue....it is hard to hear what people are saying with all the noise in the restaurant. When the whole purpose of the lunch is to either discuss buiness or visit on a personal level, you want to hear what is being spoken about."
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "Not all restaurants need to blow your mind to return to them. It is not a 5 star or even 4 star venue, but everything they deliver is good and reliable. The Service is good, the food is above good. Its a good place to go for any type of meal (business, personal, family, romantic etc.). Maybe it is because it is part of a chain that I can't bring myself to give it a fourth star. 3.5 is probably more accurate, but the system will only allow whole stars. Redwater is always on the list of possible locations, just never at the top."
    Dined on 11/20/2013
  • "Service is slow. Every time i go, I know to book a lot of time, as it takes forever to get drinks, food, and or the bill."
