A word from Redwater Rustic Grille - Northwest
At Redwater Rustic Grille we’ve combined a dining atmosphere on par with the best restaurants of Calgary’s downtown core, with the convenience of an ideal location beside the Foothills Hospital in NW Calgary. The restaurant's décor and design complement the vibrancy and freshness of the food, making Redwater’s beautifully illuminated space one of the city's hottest dining destinations. Burnished cherry wood, soft lighting and large red club chairs in the centre of the room create an ambiance of casual refinement. Servers are warmly professional and their enthusiasm for great food and wine is infectious. This northwest neighborhood gem is also the proud recipient of the 2008 Wine Spectator award. Dress is smart casual. Please note hats are not permitted and we do not have highchairs/booster seats or children's menus.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Thoroughly enjoyable dinner for a group of friends. Service and food was great. They need to re-upholster the benches. They are cracked and lumpy."

  • "Good food but only issue is the menu said salmon and my friend wanted to know if it was pacific salmon as he is from Ontario. When asked, the waitress did check we found out it was not actually salmon but steelhead trout. I have issue with what the menu said and what actually is being served"

  • "I love, love, love this restaurant! It's my favourite place to dine! It has a great ambiance and is not too loud. The service is great and the cooks are very accommodating. I am gluten and bovine dairy free and I always have lots of choices. I love the 4 Kinds of Tomatoes with goat cheese on GF flatbread. They have made the Chicken Tacos on lettuce leaves verses wheat wrap and it was amazing and the Roasted Beet Salad is one of my favourites as well. Last time there I had the Sunrise roasted chicken and it was done to perfection! When it's not so busy, they have also made the Crab Cakes GF for me and they are flavourful, tender and relish! Worth going for on a quiet night! Like I said, I LOVE this restaurant!"

  • "This restaurant is at the top of my list. The food was spectacular and served just the way we ordered it. Portion size was perfect. Not too big where you feel over stuffed at the end, but enough where you feel you get great value. The service was phenomenal! Our server came around to check on us but was not overbearing. He made great recommendations. The manager even came around to see how things were. We would definitely go back as we have may times already."

  • "Reconnected with a work colleague for lunch. Good ambiance for friendly business conversation. Food was very good, service was satisfactory and location was convenient for both of us. Continues to be a favourite location in NW. Will recommend for others looking for a good location for a reasonable business lunch."

  • "I am on a strict gluten free diet and I have chosen this restaurant as they cater to me very well. Unfortunately, while there on Thursday last I must have been given something that contained gluten. I had the roasted beet salad and creme caramel for dessert. I spent most of the afternoon and evening unwell. It won't put me off dining here again but please be cReful while handling GF food. Thanks Mary Collins"

  • "I was looking forward to trying the Redwater Grille but found myself to be very disappointed. We saw our waitress a total of five times and that was when she was breezing by our table. The food was just okay and lukewarm at best. When we told our server she didn’t seem concerned, said she will let the Chef know and walked away. I would never go back."

  • "We share our Valentines day anniversary with another couple each year. We all ordered from the "special" valentines menu. What a mistake. The other couples lobster was small, sad and old - one was quite inedible and had to be sent back. Our dinner was chateaubriand for two - which was just steak with a side of hollandaise. The asparagus were tough and the potatoes like glue. We had to share salad and dessert from one dish. Not worh the $35 per person. They should take a page out of the Carriage House play book - their valentine dinner for two was fabulous - we each got our own plate for salad and dessert and the meal was excellent for but $1 per person more. Won't be back to this Redwater."

  • "This restaurant is nice for special occasions, it has a nice atmosphere - not too noisy. I always order the tenderloin steak as it is the best one I have found in Calgary"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Friendly relaxed atmosphere with great service and good food. The menu is broad enough to serve vegetarians, gluten free types (though not a lot of options available) and complete carnivores. Good selection of wines and at a reasonable price."

  • "We had a gift card to Redwater, so we thought we'd try it out. Good thing we made a reservation, though, as they were turning away groups of just 2 about 10 minutes after we arrived (6:15 on a Friday night). We shared the pork involtini as a starter, which was probably the highlight of my meal. My date had the lamb shank, which was very good - perfectly cooked and so tender! I had the butternut squash agnolotti, and although I prefer the pasta cooked a bit more (the more-done side of al dente) the sauce, mushrooms, goat cheese and peas blended perfectly. $12 to add two shrimp and two scallops was a bit steep, but I must admit they were cooked to absolute perfection. Our server was training another, but the service was still great."

  • "This is a great restaurant for people with Celiac Disease. Staff are always helpful and knowledgable. Food is always good and service excellent."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Wine selection was great! Service was terrific! Food taste was great, however the temperature of the food was cool. The server was kind enough to comp a % off our meals. We'll be back."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "We had steak - keg is much better, seafood pasty was pretty good, kids had bison burger - was good but i expected more flavour, and cheese pizza - good."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food at Rustic is usually great. Last week a friend and I went for lunch and i tried the cauliflower soup on the new menu - avoid. It was awful."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Everything was great but it looked like they had no bartender so the waitress ended up making drinks and trying to serve diners, so through not fault of her own she fell behind near the end as we were ready to leave and pay the bill. Other then that everything was great."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "We ordered the meal for two, salad was poorly cut, apples were big chunks, what happened to julienne. I asked for rare (tenderloin) it was medium (boo) mashed potatoes were over beaten, very gluey, sauces were very good but not enough, strawberries were not ripe. This was very disappointing for a Valentines meal. I will not go back to this Red Water. The Mojito was very tasty. Twice we waited minutes for a drink refills. This restaurant has a lot of work to do at all levels."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Chose the Redwater Stadium as we had been there several years ago and thought it would be nice to go again. We planned on Valentine's Day but it is always so busy we opted to go on the 15th for a more relaxed dining experience. Our reservation was made six days in advance. We arrived on time, taken to the bar area to be seated at a high bar table, which was unacceptable. We were moved to an appropriate table after the hostess took several minutes to check. Not sure how far in advance one needs to make a reservation to be automatically seated in the dining room but I would think six days would be enough. The waitress was brisk, formal, and for the most part cold. Toward the end of the evening she seemed to soften somewhat, momentarily."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Overall a good evening, though you could tell the staff were worn out by the Valentines rush by the time we got there, so perhaps not as attentive as normal. The Lobster Tacos and the Wild Shrimp starters were fantastic, the steak and pork chop were excellent if some what run of the mill, but the dessert mousse and coffee (Milky Way is what I had) more than made up for this."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Much better than I expected, the service was good and the food was incredible. Would dine at again."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had an early Valentines dinner there. We were seated in the bar area so it was a little noisy. Also, the over sized chairs we sat in made me feel a bit like a little kid. Table was too high for us to comfortably eat off of. I felt like I should have asked for a booster seat. Not as romantic as I had hoped. My meal was great. I highly recommend the chili butter sauce for your entree. Service was a bit slow. Our waiter looked like he had more tables than he could handle but I think it was because of a busier restaurant than usual. Still a nice evening out."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Overall the food was terribly bland. The service was almost non existent. Our server came to take the order then we didn't see her again until the meal was almost over when she came by and asked how "our first bites were". We asked for a substitution of carrots instead of asparagus for the vegetables with one entree and were told that "chef doesn't like that and may only do a half order". We were clearly not impressed and the manager who stood a few feet away did everything in his power to ignore us. Poor service, bland food and bad attitude. Next time we will stick to the downtown location as this one consistently disappoints. When you pay 30+ dollars a meal it shouldn't need tons of salt and pepper to make it palatable."

  • "A friend and i went to the Grille for a pre-opera meal on a weekend evening. the restaurant was dilapidated, was poorly set out (our circular table had us facing all the restaurant traffic). the food was very poor quality, right down to the coffee. nothing seemed 'fresh', everything had poor presentation and there were too many odd flavour comintaions/pairings. we sampled a number of dishes including crab cakes, flatbreads, chicken tacos, and deserts. the only positive in the evening was the service, which was attentive and friendly. i would definitely not recommend this to anyone except families needing a night out with the kids when boston pizza isnt appealing..."

  • "Four or five of us get together once a month and have done so since December 2005! This is our third time at this venue, though we've frequented the McLeod trail Redwater location as well. I can't place why but the ambience is better in the south location. That being said we were allocated the booth we asked for, the service was spot on and the food was great, plus the Tuesday special premium wine was REALLY good."

  • "I booked at this location for a special occasion with my wife. I have dined at other locations and have always enjoyed it. We arrived for our reservation a few minutes early and were seated right away. We looked at the menus and enjoyed casual conversation, then 5 minutes turned to 10 and then 15 and 20. No one even welcomed us. Then we noticed tables around us which were seated after us getting drinks and service. Finally after 25 minutes we got up and left, I stopped at the front counter to let them know our plight and all we got was "so sorry about that". Very unfortunate."

  • "While I live a few blocks away from this restaurant, I don't frequent it often. However, whenever I do go there, for business or pleasure, I'm always delighted that the service and food continues to be consistently superb. I celebrated my wedding anniversary dinner there last week and had a fabulous evening. While I personally think that the ambience is not as elegant as the other two locations in Calgary, I would highly recommend this restaurant for business and special occasions. You will not be disappointed."

  • "the food was not hot, not cold but not hot. it tasted fine...We sent back a portion of the meal for reheating but had eaten enough (as we were hungry) of the order not to send the rest of it back. We did mention this to the waitress and the server. There was no effort on either of their parts other than "informing the chef" to make accomodations to this issue. We would have appreciated a visit from the Chef.. we will not be back nor will we recommend this restaurant."

  • "I expected more from Redwater. They mentioned the menu changed recently and the Chicken papparardelle is a poor substitute for the once delicious Prawn Garganelli. A $35 steak should taste like one, presentation was poor and the steak was nothing special. I dine at the Bow Valley location for lunch fairly often, so was disappointed in this experience. Will say the service was very nice but unfortunately didn't make up for the mediocre food."
