    I had a great meal here and overall was happy with the night. My only complaints would be that the waiter completely bailed on us after we had paid the bill. We stayed and chatted for a bit and I would have loved a water top up. The restaurant was quiet at that time so it was not like he was super busy. Also, I found the prices for glasses of wine to be atrocious. Charging $23.95 for 8oz of wine is robbery!

    We are regulars @ the macleod location (birthdays, wedding anniversary, visiting friends). Peggy always provides exceptional service. It is a treat to sit in her section. We are creatures of habit ... often ordering our favorite meals (recommend the pork chop and chicken pappardelle). Start your night with a glass of prosecco. Cheers

    Great food and service. I have a lot of food allergies and was able to find quite a few things to eat. The staff were very helpful and caring with my allergies. It's hard to find restaurants that can cater to someone with an egg, gluten and dairy allergy. Our meals were very tasty. We definitely will go back. Lovely evening.

    We have been going to Redwater South for 7 years and have never been disappointed. I have been to a couple of the other Redwater Grilles in Calgary and they don't have the ambiance this one has, and I have been disappointed with the food at one of them. This Redwater has probably the best restaurant design/décor I have experienced. Elegant, yet reasonably casual. The food is also excellent. The braised calamari is one of my favourites. I had the braised lamb shank for the first time and it was delicious! The butternut squash agnolotti is also a favourite of mine, and they also do one of the best double cut pork chops to be had.

    This is a great place to celebrate with friends and family, but very loud . If your group has people who have ringing in the ear or are not comfortable in loud areas then this is not for them as they will have difficulty hearing their dining partner conversations. Meals are very nicely presented and the serving staff is very attentive. We have nut allergies when we dine and this restaurant is very good at modifying and keeping food nut free for us.We love to dine here.Recommend the tuna, salmon, lamb, and steak.

    This restaurant is always reliable for good food and prices. We had a new waitress who was not great, but I am sure that will improve. We frequent 2 different Redwater Grills and the menu is the same. Its about time for a change, More (and different) appies and definitely different Chefs accompaniments. All in all, still a great place to go.

    The restaurant has a nice feel to the place. Clean and kept to a high standard. Designed in a circular shape makes it unusual and interesting. The food is of a high quality but I feel a little overpriced. That said I would return and would recommend this to friends. Our server was attentive and able to answer our questions. Meal preparation was slow, so if you are in a rush maybe this is not the place for you. But if you want a relaxing evening to enjoy and savour meal I would definately recommend this place. You can make reservations online which I would recommend.

    The appetizers and mains are not vegan friendly and there are too many items where dairy and meat are mixed ( lactose problems difficult to address). The dessert items were even more limited. Bring back the trio.My own allergy problems of shell fish were well accommodated and the server offered to check the crab cake. The menu did not refer to shrimp, prawns, or other seafood in the crab cake but thankfully she offered to check and as a result I had the salad only as there were shrimp in the crab cakes. Initially I was offered sparkling or flat water as a choice for a beverage by another server. I prefer tap water & found out that tap water was a choice when my table mates joined me as the regular server offered three choices.

    Dined on 9/27/2014
    I have a dairy allergy and our waitress was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. No manager came to the table so I didn't feel like a spectical but as each plate was set in front of me i was reminded that the food was dairy free. I had the lamb which was phenomenal. I often feel in restaurants that the dairy free options are normal options minus the tastiness, however this lamb was the best meal I have had in a restaurant in probably 2 years. There was also a dairy free dessert option (very rare) of sorbet which was creamy and flavorful. It was a great evening with great food and excellent service. If you have a gluten or dairy allergy this is a great option. (My gluten and dairy eating husband also loved his meal).

    I came here with coworkers for lunch. We ordered Lobster Tacos, Stuffed Meatballs and Braised beef Poutine - loved the meatballs and poutine. I have ordered the Butternut Squash Agnolotti before and had to order it this time too. My coworkers ordered Beet salad with salmon, Ahi Tuna salad, and C.A.B. sandwich - everyone loved their entrees. And we ordered the Creme Brûlée and Colossal Carrot Cake to share, I absolutely loved the creme brûlée. Service was great, very personable, food came quick, will be back!

    The experience was fabulous. Our reservation from open table was there and our table was ready when it was supposed to be. The food was splendid and the timing was impeccable. Our server Matt was kind and knowledgeable. Red Water Grill never missed a beat making sure we had food on our table all the way from the time we sat down to the time we left. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant; the menu, the staff, the ambiance, everything is top-notch. My steak was perfectly cooked and was smothered in a beautiful, from scratch, brandy and veal stock peppercorn demi glaze. I am very particular about the level of doneness of my steaks and the chef nailed it. Pricing is reasonable considering the level of food and ambiance.

    As usual, food and wine were amazing at Redwater. For the first time, I have to complain about the service. Our server was great and very knowledgeable with food pairings. The restaurant itself did not seem abnormally busy, our server was busy and did apologize for it. There was a lot of dead time while we waited for a wine menu, food, drink/ refills, desserts, and even the bill. We ended up being there for over 3 hours. Normally, I would not complain about it but we were there with our 9 and 5 year old daughters. Also found a miscommunication? in the kitchen. We received double order of gluten free buns, as well as a second round of entrees and desserts made their way to our table even after we had eaten.

    We've been many times and every time I want to order one of everything on the menu. I can always feel good about what I've eaten here. We took a couple who has never been before and they were impressed. From the appetizer down to the amazing roasted marshmallow martini for dessert, the food was delicious as always. Peggy is our favourite server and creates such a pleasant experience in every way.

    Kids meals were delivered 10 min after ordering (great), we then waited more than an hour after that for first signs of adults meals. Seafood pasta was not as described and had to go back (full of grey looking salmon). Had to wait another 15min for replacement. Steak was delivered bare on the plate (literally steak on a plate) 10 min later, steak is gone and still waiting for side. We all enjoyed my partially cooked asparagus for dessert. Two hours of frustration rather than relaxation and enjoyment. No offer to make it right other than "sorry" from server. No visit from manager.

    For the most part dinner and wine were fine, service was good, however, the prawns and scallops were certainly lacking in size and presentation for the hefty price it came with. (3 small prawns and 4 scallops the size of a quarter seemingly dumped on a bed of about 20 pieces of asparagus-so I didn't gain any weight). The other meals were pasta. For 2 pasta meals, 2 seafood meals, one appetizer, 1 dessert and 2 bottles of wine @ $40 (pretty good wine actually). Bill was $220.00 plus tip. I consider that to be a fair value for wine and dinner (but do not order the seafood dinner if you are hungry). We will go back on occasion as we always do. Still enjoy the atmosphere.
