Arctic char was perfectly prepared, great flavours! Citrus slaw with the crab cake was so amazing it almost outshone the crab cake itself.

Chocolate flourless torte is decadent!

The food was very good but we wouldn't go back because of the service. So unfortunate.

We just enjoyed our first dinner here after many glowing referrals! Our meal was delicious and the service was top notch.
If you need a seafood fix, a memorable experience and a fun evening out, visit Big Fish for a delish dish!! (no I don't work here and no, I won't be going into marketing anytime soon ;) )

I went to Big Fish for brunch on a Sunday with a couple friends and I had the eggs benedict with bison shortrib and it was delicious! My friends enjoyed the soft shell crab club. Big Fish is definitely my new favourite breakfast place in Calgary and I would definitely go back and try out the dinner menu! Additionally, the service was great. 10 out of 10 would recommend.

My Husband & I have been dining at Big Fish for years. We ONLY eat with CHRISTINA, She has the most chillin vibes of life & has great knowledge of wine, oysters, & most notably, she handles our random menu modifications with absolute GRACE! The food is ALWAYS consistent & fresh which is super important for an establishment that serves mostly seafood. Big Fish has a smaller, cozy atmosphere; Perfect for date night or a special occasion. (REAL candles on the table are a plus for me #Details)

Things we've eaten more than once: Butter Chicken hot pot, Fish Tacos, Lobster Lamb Burger & of course OYSTERS are a MUST! Also, even if I were allergic to nuts I'd still probably try to have a bite of the Pecan Pie.... At least I'd die HAPPY! kinda... LMAO!

Server was nice. The place was quite busy, a bit too noisy for me. Food took a little longer than what we expected, taste pretty good but both my daughter and myself found the food a bit too oily. Presentation was very good, would have given 4 stars if the food was less oily. Coffee was no good though, no flavor whatsoever.

We like going to Big Fish with friends who like fish. It’s the best in town for creative, well prepared fish dinners. Their oysters are fabulous, too. A comfortable conversation can be held and seating is casual. What’s better, comfy clothes, good conversation, great fish?

Food and service at the Big Fish were great. We enjoyed calamari & fish chowder as starters. Our mains - Manitoba walleye, red snapper and Arctic char were tasty. Generous portions.
