Big Fish features a wide selection of wine that it offers with meals. It serves brunch on Saturdays, Sundays and on Mondays for holidays. This restaurant welcomes reservations and provides take-out services for guests wanting to dine at home.
We regrettfully made reservations @ Big Fish for a Valentine's celebration! ... which dining experience, as well as atmosphere & service was mediocre - at best! ... & certainly not what we were expecting for a special occasion. From the very start, the hand peeled shrimp appetizer were tiny, tasteless (unseasoned), still partly-frozen crystals remaining (obviously from water thawing) & served with a low quality bottled cocktail sauce (which I can buy better @ grocery store) ... & dinner didn't improve from there - I needn't say anything more!
Fantastic service with a perfectly cooked meal
Good food. Fair price
Hi, Thank you for the review! We hope to see you again!
Excellent food, nice ambience, good service, nice music, soft enough not to drown conversation. A rare gem
Everything was great other than the table next to us letting there 4 year old wander around the restaraunt and 6 year old watch Netflix on a cell phone with the volume up. I know it's awkward for the staff to have to tell them to be respectful, but I shouldn't have to either. Which I did after the staff ignoring it for 45 minutes
Since I did the reservation I mentioned was a bday dinner, however, the waitress forgot to bring the cake with the candle. We waited for 20 min and then she said had forgotten. Also, there was a couple absolutely annoyed because my 3-year-old was playing ... it’s a family friendly restaurant and they should know it!
Food is great but service was not good enough a special day :-(
Great service and good food. I would definitely go back again
Stopped in for brunch on Saturday morning. Waiter was very friendly and food was delicious. Glad we came.
Great as always!
Very tasty appetizers and main courses. Great value for delicious food! Nice little spot in the heart of the city
Very good service and food. The restaurant was very cozy and elegant. Had 4 kinds of raw oysters and the fish tacos that were excellent. Waitresses were exceptional.
Great food and a wonderful place for a date!
As always, Big Fish was an extremely enjoyable and social time. The food, excellent. I have had Christina as my server each time I have dined at Big Fish. She is exceptionally professional, attentive, and my favourite.
It was slower then usual
And extremely loud
I’ve been eating here for years and it never disappoints.
The baked oysters were absolutely marvellous. Lobster poutine was interesting. Great sauce.
Sadly, crab cakes were not quite as wonderful as last year. A little dry and overdone.
But, as my mother said, the baked oyster sauce more than made up for it. Wonderful. Looking forward to coming back to Big Fish whenever we can.
Food was average and overpriced. Service was great. Restaurant is decently decorated but nothing special. Overall, overrated for the cost and quality of the dishes.
Very good, health food choices available
I had been to Big Fish for dinner but not lunch. I suggested this place to my friends for a get together. The food and service was great. The food was a little slow especially since there were only a few tables. I will definitely be back to try other items on the menu.
It was our daughters Birthday. It was very good but very expensive. We would go back.
Great experience as usual. Friendly knowledgeable staff, great ambiance.
We love Big Fish. Our favourite night is Monday, when it is two-for-one oyster night. The menu has options for everyone. The food is always fresh and well prepared. Service is attentive and helpful without being intrusive. Highly recommend!
We were greeted in a friendly manner, and there was no problem with our chatting "endlessly".
Great atmosphere and food! Will definitely be back when I’m in Calgary again!
Excellent service! The arctic char is amazing and that bourbon pecan praline pie....so yummy!
great place to eat. Wonderful food. comfy chairs. good wine selection. Wonderful oysters on the half shell.
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Delicious food - loved the selection of oyster our server chose for us! Our ‘mains’ were amazing! Can’t wait to go back.
We had a lovely lunch at Big Fish. We hadn't been there for a long time, and we were treating a friend, so hoped it would be good and it didn't disappoint. Our server was friendly and knowledgable about the menu. We didn't feel rushed at all and yet when we did finally order, our food came out quite promptly. Everything was fresh and tasty. We had the calamari, the fish and chips, the seafood enchiladas and the curry on offer that day. Wonderful. We will definitely return :-)
Love Big Fish! Food is excellent and never disappoints and our server was lovely!
The fish tacos were gross and the sauce that came with the shrimp bucket was kind of weird.
LOVED the pot au feu. Everything else was delicious, too...as we've come to expect from Big Fish.
Just surprised that the cost of a specialty coffee has increased to $10.
The food was unremarkable for the price. I wouldn’t bother going again nor would I recommend this place.
I definitely recommend starting with the oysters from the West Coast of Canada. They are bigger and tastier than east coast oysters - that's my personal opinion. I had the Seafood Pot Au Feu and it was delicious. Their wine selection is excellent. I especially like their Italian wine selection. Service was friendly and excellent.
Dinner was great. It was a birthday celebration for my other. Restaurant was not too busy. A little hard to have an intimate dinner with the couple next to us so close. They also were celebrating his birthday.
Amazing everything experience. I would definitely go back
The food was fantastic and the service was great. Can't wait to go back!
We've been doing brunch at Big Fish for a few years now and it never disappoints. You can make reservations which is wonderful not having to wait for an unexpected time with busy schedules (yes even on weekends!). The food is amazing and such a great variety. The staff is pleasant and has the perfect balance of attentiveness and allowing a big table time to visit. It has set the standard for weekend brunch very high. Every time we talk of trying something new we always agree that Big Fish is the best and has it all, so we keep going back.
