A word from Redwater Rustic Grille - South
Redwater Rustic Grille’s market driven menu is a fresh interpretation of contemporary West Coast Cuisine with signature dishes and innovative creations. A favorite destination for wine-lovers and foodies alike, Redwater’s wine menu features specialties from smaller boutique wineries, many of which are not found elsewhere in the city. The large selection of wine complements the executive chef's menu of seasonal robust dishes. Burnished cherry wood, travertine tile, soft lighting and the large oval glass wine cellar create an ambiance of casual refinement. Servers are warmly professional and their enthusiasm for great food and wine is infectious. Redwater is a proud recipient of the 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Wine Spectator Awards. Dress: Smart Casual.

Diner Reviews
  • "I've been to Redwater a few times but have never had a steak there before - what a mistake! The steaks are absolutely the best I've tasted in a restaurant in Calgary. I love the choice of sauces and sides and the service was fantastic. "

  • "The executive chef Aaron made us feel very welcome; apologized that our starter took so long (we didn't notice). He came back again to ask if everything was ok, was very friendly and has a good manner with customers. It made us feel a wee bit extra special."

  • "We visited there for a night out with friends. The table was booked and ready for us as we arrived at 1945. Service was first class, all eating and drinking together at the same time. I like me steak medium rare but if I go again I think I will have it cooked a little longer as it lacked a little taste. Everything else was good though and all other meals were fine."

  • "Server was very attentive but so in depth with descriptions of food and specials that seemed to take a lot of our time. We arrived at 5 PM but didn't get our food until 7 PM so a long wait."

  • "We went here for date night and from start to finish the evening was great. Everyone in the restaurant went out of their way to make our evening top notch. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Food was delicious, service was a ten, wine list excellent and atmosphere was great for being able to talk and hear each other."

    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The RedWater on Macleod has a beautiful layout and typically fine service. Unfortunately, ambiance and service cannot make up for a very disappointing experience. Our dining party consisted of 3 people and while ordering we each asked questions regarding dietary preferences, one in particular being whether we could have the vegetable portions steamed, but we were told they don't come that way. That, in hindsight, should have been the red flag. However, there is no way in 21st century dining that we could have anticipated the amount of SALT used in the meals--well beyond a flavour enhancer, it was the most predominant flavour in 2 of 3 meals overall, and 3 of 3 of the vegetable servings."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Our dinner was amazing. Tenderloin done to perfection. Wine was excellent which was recommended to us by our server. Our server was the best we have ever had. She was so attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant for either fine dining or if you just want to go out and kick back."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We've been to Redwater multiple times now and we had a craving for their braised squid. Service was great and food was fantastic. Thank you Redwater for a wonderful evening."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "For how much you pay, it wasn't the best food. The side dish of roast potatoes had no flavour. Waitress forgot to bring drinks and fill water."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "It was unfortunate that the new menu wasn't updated on the website. Unfortunately we drove from North Calgary to the South location on McLead Trail and realized that my favourite item was removed from the menu. We won't again."

  • "We've been going to Redwater for years. This is the first time where we did not truly enjoy our experience."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Corner booth with big round table was good for our group of 5. The cauliflower and bacon soup (soup of the day) was a delicious and generous 'cup' of soup. Also had the lobster tacos (3) which were spiced but very good!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "My friend and I went for dinner, we had a wonderful waitress Emily, the food was amazing and we had a great time! Will definitely go again!"

    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Excellent food, but also a very good kids menu that is "real" food and not fries, chicken fingers and Kraft Dinner. They have salmon and proper vegetables which our 5 year daughter very much enjoyed. Kids menus should be same as the adults, but just smaller portions... just like home."

  • "Macleod Trail location is very convenient and food and service was very good."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Food is always very good + at Redwater. Featured item - stuffed chicken served with mushroom risotto, was very good and all items on plate came out nice and hot from the kitchen. Cauliflower and bacon soup, however, was a disappointment. Quite bland with no discernible flavours. Some seasonings(light curry)?, herbs?, garlic? diffused bacon instead of just pieces on top?? From our experience, this is quite unusual for this chef/kitchen. Good, attentive service without be intrusive."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "I have been telling all my friends about our evening at Red Water Grille. We will definitely be back. As someone with a few allergies I can't tell you how thrilled I was to have such a large selection to choose from. To be able to eat fresh warm GF bread with everyone else is a treat I have not experienced any where! The personal attention was better than almost any place in the world we have been, including cruise ships. It instantly became a favorite! Chimichurri sauce was a favorite of mine. Thank you for such a wonderful evening."

  • "We booked a reservation here with our kids as we were between a birthday party and a hockey practice and wanted to go to a restaurant on Macleod that accepted reservations. Overall it was pretty good. It isn't necessarily fine dining, but there were decent selections on the menu and the steaks that we ordered were very good. There was a nice kids menu for our younger one and a lot of older kid friendly items on the regular menu for our son. We had the stuffed mushrooms, crab cakes and yam fries to start and they were all good as well."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "I have heard alot about Red Water Grill. After finally going there, I have to say that I was extremely dissapointed. Altough the service was very good; our server was very knowledgable and attentive, and the price points were reasonable, the food was lacking a lot. We shared several appetizers and none of them were good! Either tremendously salty or full of mayo and/or the flavours were all very bland. Comapred to other similar restaurants, the food is not worthy of returning in my opinion."

  • "loved loved loved the goat cheese salad pork chop entree a bit salty could have more that one veg as a side dish for us non carb eating people overall had a great time and meal loved the big dining chairs"

  • "My wife and I shared the Valentine's Day set menu. It was terrific. We could not have asked for more. The steak was tasty and cooked perfectly. The desert was the best I have ever tasted!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "There was nothing to write home about here. The service and food were only just average... likely won't go again."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I love the Redwater, but I wish there was more of a demarcation between restaurant and bar. There are TV's everywhere and it's hard not to watch them, even during an excellent Valentine's day meal. Service was good, server forgot one item, but they were very busy and it was no big deal. Food is great, but the noise levels make this a less-than-romantic place to eat, again for Valentine's day. Had my GF not wanted a great steak, we might have gone for Sushi...."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "As usual it was outstanding food and service! We shared the valentines menu as it was still offered on Sunday evening, so delicious! Jose was professional and genuinely has a passion for F&B and the service industry!"
