Since moving to Calgary from Vancouver, Rodney’s has been our ‘go to’ place for oysters. We thoroughly enjoy the ambience, and the servers are friendly and professional without being stuffy. Fresh oysters are hands down our favourite and Rodney’s never fail to deliver quality and variety. The King Salmon entre was a winner and the lobster roll is always a favourite. More

We had a table of 7 for a get together. The service was great. The drink menu was almost overwhelming but our server (sorry cannot remember her name) made some suggestions and we were all happy with what we got. The food was incredible. Between us we had the pork belly, sirloin, halibut, lamb, broccoli salad, oysters. Everything was amazing. It was very quiet but that was a Tuesday night and we were basically the only table in the restaurant. I can't speak for what's it's like during busy nights. For the price it's not a place we can go every day, but I would definitely recommend for a special occasion. More

Came here with a friend who was heading out of town for School and his mom recommended we try this place. Needless to say we were not disappointed by our server, Sonja, who helped him practice his French and Italian and she made the overall experience awesome. The food was good as well with the set menu. The Kahuna pizza was delicious and normally we're not big on pineapples on pizza but this takes first place. Would definitely return. More

The restaurant was really busy with a birthday party being thrown in the bar area. Noise level was very high. They had ran out of wine and bread. In an Italian restaurant? All the waitresses were busy with said party but the hostess waited on us and even accomplished a special order for my husband. Kudos!! By the time we got our food the kitchen had managed to restock its bread supply, so we at least had bread with our pasta. The management came and apologized for the loud party of young people. In the end the meal was very enjoyable and delicious! Would definitely eat here if ever back in Calgary. More
