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
  • "My boyfriend and I were looking for a classy place to have a couple steaks and a bottle of wine. The food was great, steaks well cooked. Service was alright, he seemed new at his job and didn't refill our wine glasses for us. The only real complaint was the table we were sat at, cramped and in the middle of a walk way so we were constantly being distracted and jostled by the servers. I'd recommend it but request a table in a more secluded spot."

  • "Absolutely amazing dinner!! Service was fabulous and I can't wait to go again."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "I understand fine dining however, for a $40 steak dinner the portions are a bit small. One could easily fit the dinner on a bread plate & not the large dinner plate it is served upon. Although tasty in it's own right it would be nice to see a little more in the way of vegetables & other. It did seem odd to be at a fine dining establishment & see a baseball game on the tv screen in the restaurant. I think some nice piano music or other soothing music in the background would be perhaps better suited rather than a ball game. The ball game could be watched at Original Joe's if you need one that bad. Still will go back if to simply enjoy the great service provided by Kara (SP)."

  • "I have Celiac disease and every time I have been my disease is taken seriously. I am given seperate bread with a different knife because the servers are educated and care about dietary issues. Additionally, the food is too die for. Some of the greatest gluten free food I've had in Calgary"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "We regularly visit Redwater with friends and for 'date nights'. Food is very consistent and wait staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. I have done functions in their private room as well and highly recommend this restaurant"

  • "Having been here numerous times it is one of our favorites. The food is always very good and is not stagnate. The shrimp appetizer is the very best and a staple for the restaurant. Service is very attentive without being overboard. I would highly recommend for lunches with clients as well as an evening meal with someone special. The wine list is extensive and the glassed wine room is the center of attention in the main dining room that is surrounded by booths. There is an outdoor patio that is glassed in from the elements for those that like outdoor dining. It has patio heaters for the cooler nights."

  • "I've been going to Redwater in the south many times since it has opened. Food is consistently been good and this time, the food did not disappoint. The service was off this time though. Waited a very long time to get our order placed. That's not typically the case, must have been an off-night."

  • "We were first seated near the kitchen which was so noisy had to request to be moved. Steak came medium rare when ordered medium well. Waited 10 minutes for steak to be re-cooked and then came over done though it was a very good steak. Sourdough bread was amazing. Prawn scallop dish was Ok though scallops could have been grilled more, they were not hot by the time the got to the table. Overall the meal was OK but expected more for the price."

Decided to try once more - - - Wednesday night was a complete change - a great menu, service excellent and food delicious."

  • "We were very disappointed. The waiter and service was very poor. He was mainly interested in us ordering a lot of drinks. When having a drink, we had to ask for bread many times before he reluctantly brought some to the table. The pork was terribly salty. No one in our group of four enjoyed their dinner. Cocktails were overpriced. We will not be going back."

  • "This was my first evening dining experience at Redwater south. I have always had good experience with lunch at this place, but I was really blown away by the evening experience. I was really impressed by how much effort was put into offering real gluten-free options (some restaurants claim to offer gluten-free options and then show you a menu of 'gluten-free' items which are almost always gluten-free anyway like ribs). The server was very knowledgeable and helpful with the food and wine menus and the service was excellent."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "great food but it is on the expensive side. Got talked into have my steak medium went I usually eat medium to the well side and it was pretty much rare - my hubby did pretty good out of the deal as he loves rare."

  • "The meals were amazing couldn't keep our forks off each others plates it was so good. Wine list was able to keep any palate happy and servers we're more then knowledgeable about each selection"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Everything was good but the tables are a bit too wide for easy conversation and the chairs are virtually immoveable. Changing the furniture would be helpful"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "From the moment we were seated to our complimentary dessert, our waiter and the restaurant made us feel special on our special night. We started off with a complimentary champagne. The waiter left us alone just the right amount of time during dinner for us to enjoy our anniversary dinner."
    Dined on 6/23/2014

  • "I made reservations here for a group of five for Fathers Day. We were seated immediately and the booth was so comfy and roomy. The ambience was perfect. It was dark but not too dark. The food was delicious and our server was super kind and not overwhelming. I definitely would like to take my boyfriend for a romantic dinner out here. You definitely get what you pay for. The food was delicous."
