Service and food were well done and a great example of French fare. Nice staff and not too loud for lunch.
Seems that we hit the transition to a new menu so they were out of many items. I understand the desire to renew, especially for seasonal fare, but it should be done without compromising selection. Many of the items not available were not seasonal. Also, my lamb shank was only warm. Overall, was disapppointed. While I’d like to believe they are usually better, I won’t be motivated to go back to find out.
As always, good food,great wine list and excellent service. Not in Calgary too often these days but always a pleasure to dine at Avec when in town. Kirk has a good formula that works.
My dish of salmon was quite good, with extra crispy skin and my friend's dinner of duck, was fatty as expected, but still very flavourful.
Top it off with a seasonal pumpkin tart that was sprinkled in the middle with rock salt for a spin on your taste buds at the end of our meal!
We had originally gone there for lunch and after reading over the menu the only thing that sounded appealing was the French onion soup. We both ordered soup and a glass of wine. It might have been the worst French onion we had ever had. The cheese was practically nonexistent and the puff pastry was thin and dry. The soup itself was significantly lacking flavor and tasted bland. Ambiance was weird, super quiet but not very cozy. Wait staff was very kind and timely.
Been to Avec once before. Glad we came back. Quality food and great service. We certainly appreciated the personal touches for my wife’s birthday. Megan was awesome too. Will be back.
Avec never ceases to impress; friendly and unobtrusive service, superb food with attention to detail and great presentation. Highly professional.
So good, and such great service. It's a favourite! Have never had something I didn't find delicious.
The lettuce in the salad was rusty. The steak of the steak frites was bland and soggy.
The food was good but not perfect. I wouldn’t go there again. Ambientce is nice and beautiful, the service is awesome. But at the restaurant I’m all about food.
Most amazing burger!! Steak tartar beats anything I have ever eaten in Europe. Just love these guys.
We were informed at the end of our dinner - an anniversary, that the waitress was ill and that’s why the service was so poor. The bartender had to do it all. But, my wife’s food was sent back twice due to undercook. Overall it was a poor experience. Look elsewhere for French food in Calgary
The steak frites is excellent - cooked to perfection. Other entrees looked equally tasty. Service was excellent and there's a good wine list.
My pork loin was delicious. My wife said he steak and frites were a more warmer than medium rare. Excellent wine list, but the wines were very pricey.
We were greeted with a friendly smile. Staff was very efficient and helpful. Excellent food and well spaced courses so we were not rushed nor had to wait too long for our next course.
Staff called a cab for us and notified us when it arrived. It was not too busy for a Saturday evening.
Very poor services!
There was a fly in my husband food, we were not even given an apology, after that I lost my appetite and I couldn’t finish my meal, which was average at best.
We still paid for everything but the plate with the big fly in it.
Avoid this place, service is poor, food is not good either even without the fly.
Excellent food, good wine, drink list, good service.
I come to AVEC Bistro with some frequency and have never left disappointed.
was blown away by the quality of the food and service of the staff - simply excellent, couldn't ask for anything more. thank you for a memorable meal!
Professional attentive service and a great meal
Our food took too long to come out, over 45 minutes.
Excellent meal, first-rate service.
always outstanding service, best food and wine.... av
AVEC Bistro perfectly exemplifies what it means to have a fine modern dining experience. The server was attentive, personable and had clear mastery of both drink and food menus. From the 'Peasant Cheese' appetizer, to the the steak special main course, I was delighted to see each item was carefully crafted with rich complex flavors that exuded elegant originality. AVEC Bistro is a true gem of Calgary and is definitely a restaurant I hope to return to soon.
Gluten friendly options, overall great ambience and service.
Avec is a gem in Calgary’s dining scene. The food quality and execution are perfect. I am regularly disappointed by the new hip restaurants that pop up every week. This place is now one of my favourites and I would highly recommend it.
Wonderful food, excellent wine menu, friendly service. All in all Avec was a great date place on a Friday evening
Food... appetizer, main, and dessert was really good, but the portion is little bit small for me. The service was great too.
We visited for Big Taste and it was the best of the week (1st place of 6 big tastes!). I had the beet tartare, salmon with mushroom risotto and sticky toffee pudding while my friend had the mushroom tart the salmon and the chocolate mousse and everything was great. The highlights were the beets and the risotto, both delicious with beautiful presentation. Our server was attentive and the portions were just right...throughout the big taste week I saw both too big and too small. The dishes were flavourful, value was there and it was everything that big taste should be, will come back again soon and highly recommend to others!
Went for Big Taste. Food was delicious, especially dessert. Service was friendly, though overworked. Menu has some unique dishes that I would return to try.
Our meal was delicious as always. Have had lunch here many times and it never disappoints.
Attended the lunch menue for Big Taste Calgary. The soup I had was wonderful. Creamy, silky, and refreshing, quite nice overalls and something that I want again.
The people I went with had the beat salad and it looks amazing as well.
I had the Burger and my friend had the salmon and risotto. The Burger was juicy without being greasy, the fries were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside and was overall a great meal. The salmon was lovely with the risotto being wonderfully prepared.
For the third, the chocolate mousse was light and not overpowering, a great way to set the tone for later in the day.
Overall a great meal for a business lunch, that was not too heavy and was delightfully prepared. Truely a great experience. Thanks!
We went out with another couple to avail ourselves of the Big Taste event at Avec. Appetizers included a beet tartar with goat cheese and a warm mushroom tart followed by mains of steak and roast potatoes and salmon over a mushroom risotto all of which was very tasty. Dessert was a choice between chocolate mousse or a sticky toffee pudding. All in all is was a good meal with excellent service.
Exceptional experience - 3 couples came for a birthday and the food was amazing, the server was professional and made us most comfortable. We all enjoyed us very much!
Great service and love the touch of Absinthe at the end of the night.
Great food and great service.
For a day-after Valentine's date, Avec was fantastic! Trying new, delicious food, we were very pleased!
