I had booked for me and my two girlfriends so we could enjoy a nice meal and be able to converse. I haven't been to the Broken Plate for quite some time so I guess I forgot how good it is. Our server was very friendly and helpful but not obtrusive. The food came in a timely manner and was excellent. The wine was very good. It was also very nice that the volume level was not too high and we were able to chat without shouting.
I was also very pleased to note that they have gluten-free items, which are indicated on the menu. I'll definitely be back!

Upscale neighbourhood greek gem
Food is well presented and portions are very generous. Prices are market price not cheap but very worthwhile. We did not try the wine but the greek beer was excellent and the raspberry lemonade was great....it had a nice kick of vodka.
We did not try any desert as we were too full. There was 8 in our party and everyone was very happy with their order.
Great place very close to home...reservations would be advised.

Will definitely be back!
This was our family's first time at the restaurant (2 daughters - 10 & 8), and the food was fabulous!! Luckily, they had a lobster special this evening, otherwise, finding "kid-friendly" entrees on the menu could have been a challenge....Service was excellent (explained many dishes in detail - including how large the dessert was - so did not need to order two for the girls), although was also covering the patio, so the wait for a few dishes was a little longer than expected... Overall, an excellent experience, and will definitely be back...

Broken Plate on Macleod has become our favorite restaurant in Calgary.
friendly and knowledgeable service, attentive but not pushing. Very nice menu, excellent selection of meat, fish, and pasta. Portions are generous and food is very fresh, everything it seems to be homemade. The Baklava Cheese Cake is to die for.

It had been a while since we dined at the Broken Plate. They had a different menu but still had a lot of their standard favorites. My husband had the lamb shoulder special and it was absolutely delicious. I had the rack of lamb and it was cooked to perfection and seasoned beautifully. We look forward to going back soon.

We had a very good dinner served by friendly staff who were attentive but not intrusive during our special dinner celebration. The pace was just right and allowed us time to enjoy our meal. When we arrived our table was ready and set up for our party of three.

Invited some family from out of town (Ontario and Texas) all who had different tastes. Luckily at the Broken Plate I was able to accommodate the likes and dislikes of all my guests. They all left having enjoyed their meal.

Good food, good service
We recently celebrated a birthday at the Broken Plate with a group of six. We ordered wine, an appetizer, salads, and 4 different entres. All selections were tasty and nicely presented. Our server was extremely friendly and efficient. And the birthday girl received a free dessert!

Broken Plate Fans
We really like this place. Our favorite part is probably the appetizers... Saganaki (seared cheese), shrimp, pita and dips, the list goes on. Mmmmm. There are 2 or 3 classic main courses we rotate around, and there are Gluten Free options for my wife. We've always had good service here and look forward to future outings. Thanks Willow Park Broken Plate!

Overall an excellent evening
Overall an excellent evening with great food and service and we will definitely be going back. When making the reservation through Open Table I mentioned it was birthday occasion and following our main course a complimentary dessert with Happy Birthday written on the plate appeared. We also received a comlimentary liquor, quite unexpected...the little extras go a long way.

Best greek in years
Perfect amount for two to share, tzatziki was incredible. Spanakopita was perfection and left you craving that cheesy goodness. Bruschetta was filled with a good toss of feta.. All three had more than enough dip/sauce, that really shows they care about having the customer leaves happy.
Dinner we ordered a large greek salad for her and a penne/chicken pasta with nutmeg sauce. We ended up the special of the night which was lobster ravioli in a saffron sauce with asparagus. I think i miss-ordered but i dont blame anyone as the pasta was the best i have ever had. The salad was perfection as well.
My hats off you the chefs and everyone else
Waiter and waitress were the best we have ever had.
Will be back for more.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
..always a great experience to dine here! See you soon.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
better than ever before...
We have been here often but there was something different this time...the ambience was better than usual, the service was great and the food even better than before. We commented to the waitress and she told us that they are under new ownership. Wow, what was good is now even better.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner was good but lamb shanks not as good as I remember from last time I had them.
One of our party was disappointed with the portion size of the lamb shank dish. For me it was a good portion but the flavor was not the same. Also where they break plates for people celebrating occasions, it is way too small .I also like to know ahead about the automatic 18% tip added to bill. I am a reasonable tipper but dislike when an amount is added to my bill that should be optional and only if service is worthy of a tip. I get that larger groups require some more work but that is the nature of the job! I do not get tips in my line of work. Plus they should just not be expected!!!

Old friends meeting to catch
Old friends meeting to catch up. The atmosphere and table placement were excellent and allowed us to have a great visit in a relaxed atmosphere without feeling that fellow diners were listening in. Service was just the right mix of attentive and respectful of our wish not to be rushed. Food was great both in presentation and taste. A great experience.

Favourite Greek Restaurant
Every experience I have had at this restaurant has been a lovely one! The service is very good, the ambiance has a warm, casual feel to it, and the food is excellent. I can sense the pleasure other diners are having too and it makes the evening even more pleasant. The occasional 'Opa!" makes every one smile.
Access to the restaurant is easy; just off Macleod Trail, ample parking, and walking distance to shopping and transit.
Try it - you will like it!!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
My family and I chose this spot for my mothers birthday and it was great. The food was very good and she really enjoyed being able to break a plate, I think she will remember this experience for years to come.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
WOW WOW WOW
.....always exceeds my expectation;brought in 2 new diners for the experience and they too look forward to the next visit!!

I had the zeus chicken and it was amazing! The chicken and stuffing were a perfect combination. Great service and nice atmosphere. If you want a good meal then heres where its at.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been to the other locations as well. I happened on this location by chance. The service and food are always awesome. The staff will accommodate allergies to foods. This sold me on their service and hospitality.

Reply to "Not happy" Review
On behalf of Broken Plate Willow Park, we are writing this in response to the review titled "Not happy". Last week, our oven stopped working right before we were about to open. The repairman was unable to make it in time and it was too late to give our guests sufficient notice to close. Out of 33 items, we were unable to make 4 items. In 10 years, this has never happened to us and we have always done our best to satisfy our guests' needs. We notified our guests as soon as we could (keeping in mind that it was as much a shock to us as it was to some of our guests). We were by no means trying to be "sneaky" or hide anything. If the message was not communicated at the door, it was simply because it was new information to us as well.

Great food, good venue
Group luncheon turned out excellent. Everyone really enjoyed the food and there were lots of options on their lunch menu at a great price.

The right spot
We were looking for a spot with great food and an enjoyable ambience - the Broken Plate was the perfect spot. Each member of my party had something different, choosing something from each area of the menu. The Daily Special was halibut and it was a tasty dish, wonderfully presented accompanied by lobster risotto and vegitables. The seafood pasta was a deep dish with an abundance of mussels, shrimp, calimari and scallops. The golden beet and fig salad with salmon was a light and tasty dish that is highly recommended.

Celebrating a birthday was never easier. Great service, fine food, and a sumptious meal.

Great food and service
The food and service at the Broken Plate is excellent. We were greeted with a warm welcome and seated quickly.
The appetizer was great and the main course was awesome. There was plenty to eat so we passed on dessert.
Also, the wine selection was good and we enjoyed one of our favourite wines with our dinner, the sparking Q water is a nice touch too, only $1 per person.

Broken Plate Delivers on Taste
So glad that this place is finally on opentable! Been coming here sporadically for years and this time was truly the best! Will be coming more often now to get the amazing food and the points! Calamari is so crisp yet tender. Tzatziki needed more tzatziki flavour and a bigger ramekin (they charge if you want more), but they honestly have the best calamari coating around! Greek ribs were moist, tender, succulent. Accompanying veggies were perfectly cooked and seasoned! Lemony potatoes, sweet golden beets, juicy yellow zucchini, and broccoli that would make any broccoli lover love it even more! And of course their chocolate cake is perfect for chocoholics like me! Opa!

Excellent dining experience!
Excellent dining experience!!!
We have been at broken plate few times the last 6 months and we are going back soon. We love the saganaki, calamri and the dips to start our dinner, for main course I always order one of the fantastic lamb dishes, my wife loves the Jumbo Prawns and the Stuffed Chicken Supreme, lately they renewed the wine list and extended with much more better wines, we loved the Gran Malbec. Thumbs up Broken Plate!
