The only thing i did not like I ordered a single rum and coke, and the brought me a double (with out me knowing it) when the server brought the bill I asked her why was this double..?? ( I never ordered it double) she said that is how the bartender likes to make it..
Honestly I don't care how he makes it but when I order something that I want I should get it not what bartender chooses for me..
Plus getting charged for it...That's all
But other than that I love this place..!

Decided to try this neighbourhood gem on a Sunday afternoon. The food was really quite good. The food portions were large and quite filling. Pricing is very fair and comparable to the rest of the area restaurants. We would definitely come back again.

My girlfriend and I went to 80th and Ivy for dinner at 5:00pm on Sunday. It was completely deserted so we were skeptical. We were sat in the back corner of the dining room by the windows which was really cold (i had to wear my jacket the entire meal). The room filled up within 20 minutes. The music was at a respectable level. Our waitress introduced herself and was very friendly.She brought us ice waters and a basket of fresh bread and olive oil for dipping. We ordered a bottle of the Malbec, the Kale salad and Gargonzola Mushroom Dip to start. Great appetizer for sharing. For the main course we ordered the Corleone Pizza and the Classic Alberta Burger with fries. I selected this restaurant and a neighborhood gem because it really is.

Cool dining on 17th Ave
So I know it looks contradictory saying kid friendly, and yes most people around us were romantic couples, but if your children are well behaved the atmosphere is fun and loud and great for families as well as couples. The front section is great for groups, more for drinks and nibbles. Food was good, range of food but menu not too big.

First time visit, won't be the last
We stopped here for a late lunch / early dinner on the weekend based on the recommendation of a friend. It was our first time here but definitely will not be our last - service was phenomenal, food choices were unique and absolutely delicious, and atmosphere and prices were great. We couldn't say enough good things about this place, down to all the little details, and can't wait to go back. Really glad we stopped in!

Pleased to meet you?
I always enjoy the food at Group 933 restaurants... But when the server stops to introduce themselves to each person at the table I cringe. This is not customer service taken up a notch, it's just plain weird. It's so weird that it makes me steer clear of 933 Group restaurants all together. The food my be great, but the service is too weird!

Father's Day brunch
We got brunch for Father's Day. It was a Sunday. Food was delicious. Service quick. I was surprised they had a French press option for coffee and it was perfect! Not too pricy. It was about 50$ for three breakfasts a tea, a French press and 18% tip. I would definitely go back!!
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first visit and we will definitely be back! The food was incredible, our server was attentive & friendly and we were made to feel very welcome from the moment we walked in. Loved the location, the atmosphere and was particularly impressed when the floor manager came over to specifically introduce herself to me as we had spoken on the phone a couple of days prior. You won't be disappointed!

Meat and Cheese board overpriced
Went on Friday evening, service impecible. Decided to have small plates. Oysters - fine value for money, prawns and scallops same. Meat and Cheese board for $15 is not good value though. Far less on there than National serve. Salad was very good and fresh. Chocolate mousse's were huge. Far bigger than expected. Spent about $100 on food overall and felt although food was very good, the board is not value for money.

We had a wonderful, relaxed family dinner after a week of flood stress. The little ones were entertained by the open concept of the restaurant and the overall noise level meant that their activity didn't stand out.

Must admit we got distracted by the wine so we only had a few appitizers. The pulled chicken(maybe pork) sliders were so amazing!!!! I will be back.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great spot day or night
Always enjoy lunch or dinner at 80th. Quick lunch option but quality is not compromised.

Great food, large portions
My wife and I went for dinner for a special occasion with friends. We sat in the front area of the restaurant where the tables are higher and you sit on tall chairs. Not the most comfortable; I think the back area of the restaurant looked more comfortable with a better ambience. The food made up for this small discomfort! Great food and large portions! Service was prompt and friendly. Will definitely return.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
good food, good service
But not great. We had the "Board of Meat" as we called it - chicken, steak and char. The chicken and steak were both cooked very well - the chicken was nice and juicy. The char was overcooked and dry. Our sides were brussel sprouts, which were tasty and frites, which were good. They don't have an espresso machine. The wine list was very good. We liked that they focussed on local ingredients. I would go again with a group of friends for a casual evening out.

Trendy yet casual spot
We thoroughly enjoyed dinner and drinks at the trendy yet casual 80 & Ivy! A varied menu selection at half reasonable prices seems harder to find in Calgary but this place fits the bill. We'll definitely be back!

Great Friday Evening
We had a great experience and brought three friends who had never been to 80th & Ivy. I made a reservation for Friday night. By the time we arrived, the rotisserie was already broiling three rounds of rotisserie chicken and the aromas coming from the kitchen were wonderful. My friends were pleased with the many wines to select from and started with wines by the class (Malbec and Merlot). The service was excellent. Colin, our server was polite, gracious and friendly. The food was amazing! I recommend the Butcher's Board selection of 1/4 rotisserie chicken, 5 oz. Spring Creek rib eye with two sides and to finish the sticky toffee pudding. If you're up for something light, the ivy salad is delicious!

Good food/Great Atmosphere
Really enjoyed the atmosphere. They have a nice big patio on 17th Ave, then a bar 'type' area with high tables when you first walk in and a nice quieter spot up a few steps in the back with the open kitchen and regular tables. The food was great. The beet and arugula salad was delicious. Service was very good.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food. Forgetful server.
My friends and I came for a girls night a few weeks ago. Luckily we were so focused on catching up we barely missed that the server didn't acknowledge us for over 20 mins. When she did, she explained the confusion with another staff. However the forgetfulness didn't end there. Lucky after she has gotten off shift and transferred us to someone else, he was much more attentive. Food was good. The Greek ribs were awesome and my side with my lamb was amazing.

Had an enjoyable brunch on the patio with good food and service

Service was excellent and
Service was excellent and the food was very, very good. We had the 1/4 roasted chicken and halibut, both cooked perfectly. The mixed berry cheesecake was awesome. Will definitely come back. Only complaint is the chairs were designed by the Marquis de Sade - flat metal bottom and very uncomfortable.

Nice surprise ...
It was our first time to 80th & Ivy & we would definitely go back. It was a nice warm Saturday evening so the patio overlooking 17th Avenue was busy so we opted to sit in the restaurant. A very open floor plan definitely conveys the "modern kitchen" concept not exactly the setting if you are looking for an intimate dining and conversation environment. Noise level was relatively quiet but the dining room was not busy with maybe 1/4 to 1/3 of the tables having guests. As an appetizer we had the Tuna tartare w/ chili dusted wontons ... excellent! The chili powder on the wontons gave it some nice warmth but not overpowering. Our meal was great, the service friendly & warm with the right amount of attentiveness. Definitely worth a second visit!

Ending our year off
Very easy to book a reservation and the addition of being able to order flowers at the same time was perfect. Very friendly staff and no sense of rushing us through the meal. The only shortcoming was the lack of vegetarian choices and nothing at all if a person is vegan other than dropping ingredients off the menu selections. Our sever, though, was very helpful at doing just that. The evening was very pleasant and we would certainly go back.

The restaurant was quite noisy. We had to sit closer together to hear each other.
The food was excellent and so was the service.
We sat and visited and did not feel rushed to move on.

Friendly staff that were patient
Friendly staff that were patient with many questions and concerns our group had about the menu. Everyone was satisfied with their meals overall. The only disapointment would have been about the steak, was ordered medium-rare but came out medium. Great happy hour prices with wine.

Great spot. The lower level
Great spot. The lower level was more casual and loud. But the food was great. Loved the steak bites and roast chicken.

We were very pleased with our first visit to this restaurant. We were probably the oldest people in the place (we're in our early 60's), but were glad we checked it out. The food was very good, so was the service. We'll be back.

Great casual dinner
This is our go-to spot for easy dinning. The atmosphere is casual, yet sophisticated, and the menu is simple, affordable, and well executed. We have great service every time we go, and it's always a nice mix of dinning guests and apres-work cocktail-goers.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
They always do a good job and the food never fails.

My New Fav Resturant in Calgary
Friend and I went at lunch. My family and friends know I'm not a big eater and most of the
time will only order an appetizer and don't always finish it. More due to whatever I ordered
just didn't hit that spot. Well,,I not only finished the amazing Halibut Fish Taco appetizer
but took my husband that evening back to 80th & Ivy, to experience the great menu.
He ordered Classic Alberta Burger, I don't eat red meat but it sure looked great.
We'll be back without question..
Oh, yea..great to have the manager make personal rounds to each table. Made it even more personal.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
A girlfriend and I went here on a Tuesday and we were delighted to see that they have a pizza and wine special that night. The wine was good, the pizza was awesome! I am gluten free and they have the best gf pizza I have tasted. Try the pear one! Delish!

Fast becoming my favourite place!
This restaurant is fast becoming my favourite restaurant. I have been on a restricted diet and even though I've had to limit what menu items I can eat, the team has been very accommodating and my selections were delicious! My friends have loved their choices and I appreciate the fact that we can actually enjoy our conversation without having to compete with the volume of the music.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved this restaurant!
Once we made it past the lounge to the restaurant, it was great!
