Excellent overall experience. Only comment would be that I left a voice mail asking to be quick at the end and while the waiter was excellent and efficient ( Kevin ), I do not believe they listened to my email. Not sure how you would connect an online booking with a voicemail message but there you go! Thank you for the wonderful food and wine.
Well prepared, well plated, well served food in a lovely room.
We live north of St Albert, so don't get to Calgary very often. This restaurant tends to be a favourite stop for us anytime we are in Calgary. Our latest recent visit did not disappoint. We invited another couple to join us and it was an incredibly relaxed environment with amazing food. We had a great meal and the service was attentive and prompt, yet unintrusive. We enjoyed our evening very much and the meal was incredible at every stage from appetizers to dessert. We would highly recommend this restaurant and it remains one of our very favourite stops in Calgary. Have never been disappointed.
The setting was very comfortable with a elegant atmosphere. The staff was helpful and on point. The portion was just about right with the level of richness. The Pork Belly was well presented and elegant. A wonderful balance with the suggested wine and the meal.
We will be going back.
Everything about our dining experience was exceptional. The service is attentive as each server picks up the others’ duties to keep things responsive & flowing. The food is excellent and the flavours on each dish intermingle well (olives, ham hicks terrine, duck breast & stuffed mushroom/lamb ravioli). The wine list has something for everyone...we had 2 classes of a good chianti. I highly recommend making this a dining stop while in downtown Calgary.
A high degree of difficulty menu executed perfectly. Great attention to detail down to the wonderful fresh bread. Will be back.
Good service and thorough knowledge of food and wine. Was an enjoyable dinner and will visit again
We had a lovely dinner with friends and plan to go back on a date night very soon!!
A gem in downtown Calgary. Staff very friendly and attentive. Food was creative, well presented and very tasty. One concern is that the menu has rather limited choices. Sticky toffee pudding for desert...YUM! At least you can hear others you are dining with...did not have the TGIF yelling crowd....or was significantly muted compared to other nearby restaurants. Would definitely return.
Had the same waiter as every other time - he was great and the food was too. Loved every part of the evening.
The food was ok. Nothing that rocked my world. Good service and atmosphere
Had a lovely Christmas lunch with some business clients. They were impressed by the whole experience. I would definitely book again at Blink.
Service was slow, inattentive, washrooms were unattended, chairs in hallway, overall I would not go back.
The staff at Blink were wonderful. My out of town guest is Vegan and they prepared a wonderful meal for her and had several vegan wine options as well. A fantastic evening.
I have lunch at Blink from time to time and am always impressed with the varied menu- there is always a choice of interesting fish, chicken, beef, pasta, salads, and soups. So, you can go everyday and have something different.
I had the quiche with mushrooms and leeks, which had a perfect crust, and unlike a lot of places, the quiche was steaming hot. And, perfectly done.
Most importantly, the salad with the quiche was one of the best green salads I have had in a decade. If a resto can't make a green salad, you shouldn't eat there. This one was spectacular - with an interesting mix of greens, quick pickled or wilted onion, a grainy mustard vinaigrette and sweet little halved cherry tomato. Perfect.
Service was brisk and knowledgeable. It was not crowded, so service should have been this way, but the service has always been good at Blink for me.
Great Chardonnay by the glass.
All for about $50 per person. Win-Win situation.
Had a girls lunch date, food was great but our server seemed a little bummed out and sad. He didn’t add anything to our experience. Atmosphere was cozy and great place a quiet lunch
When I emailed ahead to find out if the restaurant could accommodate celiac clients I was assured they could. However when we arrived they wouldn’t change the menu selections in the slightest. Our waiter made my wife and one over guest at our table feel comfortable when they asked about menu selections and substitutions. All of the other staff were warm and friendly the restaurant is beautiful. All four guests at our table were disappointed overall and would not return.
Food was delicious, a lovely experience from the moment you walk in.
Loved our dining experience. Whenever I am in Calgary this restaurant is my restaurant of choice. The food and service are always exemplary!
Incredible service. Food pretty good. One of the places to be in Calgary.
Very good lunch. Great for a business meeting.
Danielle and her staff were very accommodating and extremely professional.
We'll be back!
My friend got sick after the dinner there. The service was okay. Food mediocre at best. Over priced and would not go back.
We had lunch reservations for a special occasion with Blink and we were not disappointed. The menu is creative and the food was spectacular.
A beautiful room and great ambiance and service. The main courses were delicious. 3 of us ordered the tuna appetizer and were disappointed with the minuscule pieces of tuna which you could hardly taste.
Consistently top shelf
Can’t say I loved it. The food was good but not great. It was all well presented but I was left wanting more. It had been a reliable choice. Hope it isn’t getting stale.
We were looking for a special dining experience to celebrate a birthday/ anniversary and we were not disappointed. Exceptional service and wonderful ambiance. Our meal was delicious. Will definitely recommend this restaurant.
Outstanding visit for an anniversary!
Everything was perfect 👌🏼 our only complaint and why the food wasn’t five stars was it wasn’t hot enough for us.
We will be back again, the staff were all amazing !
We went for a business lunch and have to say the service, food and wine was exceptional.
It was busy and loved that local focus. We were sat by the door and it was cool....needed to wear jackets. Also, for the price it is expensive for the portions.
Came to Blink for my husband's birthday and had a lovely meal with friendly, professional service. Very much appreciated the suggestions for wine to match our meals. The charcuterie plate appetizer was wonderful and perfect for two to share. Mains were beautifully plated and very tasty, and we don't normally have dessert but each tried one of the unique desserts - have to try something I would not do at home. Thanks for the lovely service and delicious meal on a snowy Calgary night.
So great for an intimate setting with delicious food and incredible service!!!
Wonderful wine selection. Our dinners were all ok but no one raved about the tastes.... the mushroom tart appetizer was a hit, though.
Awesome as ever
I enjoyed the Restaurant but did mention to the server that my meal and my husbands was luke warm not hot after we finished. I should have mentioned it before as she said they could have warmed it but I had fish. It was done so warming may have toughened it.
Wonderful service, excellent meal, chicken and cod moist and cooked perfectly.
We decided to share the charcuterie plate, cheese plate and olives and once they arrived and saw we regretted our decision. The charcuterie plate was ridiculous, especially for a province known for its beef. The two small 'drops' of grainy mustard on the plate looked to be more for decoration than taste. The cheese plate contained a few measly pieces of cheese. It was our opinion that the restaurant was more pretentious and less about dining experience and dollar value.
One of my favorite spots!
