Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent service during a recent lunch at Thomsons. Had the steak sandwich with house salad - very good."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Thomsons is just down the block from my office and the breakfast buffet never disappoints, I love the selection. Especially that I can get my eggs cooked any way by the Chef that is stationed at the buffet. A great place for a quick breakfast meeting to start off the day."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "It was good, selection was alright, not massive, not for what you pay. But it was decent enough. That you had a few choices."

  • "I like the restaurant, especially the artwork. Love that their soups are always made gluten free, this makes it much easier for me."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Our party of four all enjoyed our meals and beverages. I had the lamb burger with side salad and a great glass of Spanish red wine. Our waiter was pleasant, helpful and provided excellent service. Thomsons is a favourite of mine for an early bite to eat before going down the street to see theatre or music. It has a warm and classy environment and is not noisy like so many restaurants these days. I love being surrounded by art that reflects the landscape of Alberta."

  • "Nice pictures on the wall. Nice room. The pulled pork sandwich was great! - had to eat quickly though, the bun had become quite soggy! actually, had cut the sandwich in half, ate the 2nd half without the bun - too wet! The French fries I think were over-cooked - weren't very good at all."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Normally we would go to a special brunch but we were late booking and so the family decided to meet at Thompsons. The restaurant was very quiet and nothing special was going on. We had the breakfast buffet which was good, but not outstanding. Certainly their was enough selection to satisfy everyone. The service was excellent."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I had a mineral water, a chicken mushroom soup, followed by a steak sandwich with a garden greens salad. All of it was excellent, especially the salad, it was fresh as if it was picked that morning. Also had some multigrain bread with butter, very nice. Finished it all off with a decaf cappucicno which was awesome. Service was prompt, friendly and professional."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Brought my cousin out to Thomsons after hearing great things about it and they enjoyed themselves. My favorite was the steak and shrimp, which was made to my liking. I'd definitely go back there! "
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "I had supper with an out-of-town business partner. We both loved the historical building, and the decor. We truly appreciated the chef's philosophy regarding local/regional sourcing of top quality ingredients. The food was excellent, and the portions just right. I definitely recommend this restaurant for business or family dinners."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "I choose Thomsons for lunch meetings because the food and service are great, and it is not noisey. Their salads are excellent, and healthy. The staff are friendly and efficient and they understand that you want to enjoy your brief time in the restaurant and then get back to work. They get the food out fast and to spec. Very pleasant ambiance, as well."

  • "Our brunch was delicious, food was terrific, service was fantastic. Our server, Ringo was attentive, hearing it was our anniversary the day before, he brought cheesecake slice with Happy Anniversary written on the plate. It made out day and we want to thank him for that. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We had a great Sunday Brunch. Although the number of food selection and variety is not the best, the food quality, service and atmosphere were excellent and our family enjoyed greatly our time together at the restaurant."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "An 11:30 lunch, for a table of 5 worked out very well. Our long-time Thomson's server, Arnel was outstanding as always. He has in-depth knowledge of the menu and is efficient when working his section. A full patio meant the dining room filling up quickly for the daily lunch rush, but he was calm, collected and seemed even more attentive thoughout the service. Thompson's is an excellent lunch gem in the downtown core. Give it a try for you and your colleagues."

  • "I booked the restaurant because I thought it was a Mother's Day special but it was a regular breakfast and for the money I paid I didn't see the value. The egg Benedict was over cooked and the sauce was so sour. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "An excellent spot for a business breakfast. Wide selection of buffet items. Fine omelette, great coffee."

  • "Was looking forward to lunch with my coworkers at Thomsons. The ambiance and decor were perfect for a business lunch. But I was a little disappointed at the menu. It mostly comprised of salads and burgers. There wasn't a single pasta or flatbread dish on the menu. I ended getting the daily special which was the beef stroganoff penne which had too much sauce. It was more like beef soup. I would still go back though - the service was fantastic. "

  • "An excellent restaurant, nicely varied menu, very fine seafood choices. I particularly enjoyed the dessert variant on poutine, a very novel idea. Overall, I greatly enjoyed my visit to Thomsons."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "I have read some wonderful reviews about this restaurant. The food was amazing the service was outstanding... but to go to a restaurant where you have to go into a lounge to use the bathrooms, and to top it all off to have to go to the lounge to pay for your service...Sorry that is not a classy restaurant at all. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "From the stunning artwork, to historical architecture, the regular updates to the menu, and chefs that actually come out to connect with the customers, this restaurant provides for great table conversation and interaction with the people behind the experience."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "We had a group of 34 and the staff dealt with our chaos very well. Thee were 10 kids between the age of 2-5 and one of the chefs took them to a candy closet for a special treat! They are all still talking about! The extras that the staff do is what sets Thomsons apart from any other restaraunt!"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "I selected this place based on a google search for good resturaunts for brunch in calgary. I was very happy with it, and appreciated the free parking they provide too. The hotel is nice, and the resturaunt was not busy when we arrived. The brunch was very good, and the coffee was excellent. The people I was with had French toast filled with yogurt, and the eggs with sausage. Both dishes were good they said. I would eat here again, I thought it was very good. "

  • "Have Brunch regularly at Thomson. Always good food and good service, especially with Joseph. Good place to meet up with family or friends."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Great seasonal menu, superb service and rich ambiance. The steaks and rack of lamb were cooked perfectly; I prefer Thompsons ribeye over Caesars any day. The restaurant is so quiet every time we go; I think Thompsons must be one of the best kept secrets downtown."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "The food was so delicious and the service impeccable. We were seated right away and love the open kitchen. After dinner we had a coffee (again excellent). My sister had a latte which was not good at all - suggested that they take it off the menu as it was a disappointment after the fabulous meal. Would definitely go again."

  • "I heard great things about the Sunday brunch at Thomsons so in my recent trip to Calgary (I live in Edmonton) I decided to make a reservation and give it a try. The place was very neat, ambiance was very appealing and the layout of the place well thought of. It satisfied my morning waffle craving (was actually offered and served at our table warm—plus points) down to your savoury roast or seafood desires. Overall, the food department passed with flying colors for me. I commend Ms. Irene for taking the extra mile to make our first Sunday brunch at Thomsons perfect. Her attitude was very refreshing, and she made us feel very welcome. Genuine customer service which you seldom see anymore. Thomsons is very lucky to have her. Till next time."

  • "Needed a bigger selection on the menu. When we asked if they had burgers on the menu, we were offered the lounge menu without hesitation. Calvin was our waiter, he was attentive without being intrusive which was a skill hard to come by. Unfortunately the dishes took a tad too long to come out so we had to rush through our meals to get to the theater. Would've loved to be able to finish the meal with a coffee and dessert. All and all, it was enjoyable."
