Excellent tastes and an accomplished kitchen. The “share” concept is still a bit unfamiliar but it seemed to be better here than other restaurants and we will certainly be back. I still believe that the success of a meal is very dependent on how all of the flavors come together on the plate with a feature item and the supporting elements of the sides. To that point as the most skilled individual, the chef is better at delivering this fine balance. More

Great little hole in the wall restaurant! Food is great and very reasonably priced. The staff are very accommodating and try to make your visit enjoyable. I highly recommend their brunch menu. The eggs bennys are cooked perfectly all the time, the curries definitely remind me of the ones ive eaten in Tokyo. It is a smaller place (seats 30 maybe max), so come early or book reservations.

Breakfast | Downtown, Calgary

After 20 weeks of intense dieting and physical training for a Fitness Competition myself and 3 other competitors, along with some other friends, choose Buttermilk Waffles as our morning after the show meal and we were not disappointed. The waffles were made fresh and served hot with so many different topping options to choose from. I choose a Sweet Option with the Banana Nutella Waffle and added on a scoop of Village Ice cream and Pecans. It was the perfect portion and delicious to the last bite. I have been raving about Buttermilk Waffles since I left and I can't wait to go back. Thank you for making my post competition meal so amazing!! More

We had a lovely dining experience. Even though I have different things to say about 3 things. First, the worst thing about this restaurant is the decor and ambiance, I thought it would be so much nicer than it is. It’s not terrible, but I expected more. Second, the food. It was soooo good. We did have one dish that was not up to our expectations which brings me to the third, the service. Our server was amazing! She made awesome recommendations, went out of her way to make our evening enjoyable and when we had an issue with one of the dishes, she took it off our tab with no questions asked. We also stayed later than closing time and we did not feel rushed to leave at all. Overall we had such a great evening here. Oh and I must add that the feature cocktail was awesome and the bottle of rose we shared was the best I have ever had! Overall, amazing! More

We have never dined at the Saddledome Grill or any other sit down venue at the Saddledome before this evening. I thought the prices were a bit high, especially if you wanted a nice steak, but I had the Beef Short rib Pappardelle and my partner had the Moroccan Chicken. They were both very good and the service was also very good. We would definitely return again! More

Went for beer with friends on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Sat on the patio and had a couple of pints. Pints were $4, service was great. Didn't have opportunity to eat - but have in the past and found it to be quite good. Last Best's beer selection was a little lacking this day - but everyone found something to enjoy. Tokyo Drift remains one of my favorite IPAs - and Show Pony was also available. Unfortunately, they were out of the lighter choices - Blonde and Olsch Kolsch B'Golsch - obviously popular on the first patio weekend of the year. Overall, an excellent place to enjoy a few pints with friends. More

We went on May 15, the first really nice day after the never-ending winter and chose to sit outside. Service was very good, attentive but not obtrusive. One disappointment though, we wanted to order calamari for appy, was told the menu was being changed and the calamari was unavailable. We ordered the spring rolls and they were OK, not great or outstanding. I had the turkey pot pie, it was pretty good. My friend had the fish and chips, she really enjoyed it. With the weather, the food and the service, overall a very good experience. More

Tapas / Small Plates | Downtown, Calgary

We were on a double date with friends, we ordered three appetizers. Two of those appetizers were the wontons and gyoza, which came in three pieces. Three wontons, three gyoza. They not only seemed a bit overpriced (delicious, but overpriced), but we were four people. I’ve been to other restaurants where we were warned when ordering that there was an odd number of pieces for the number of guests and the server asks if we want to add an extra, which is very helpful. I would suggest your servers do the same. I genuinely would not have suspected that a $15 wonton appy would’ve only contained three wontons. When we saw that there were only three pieces when it arrived, it was disappointing, and the value just didn’t seem worth it to order more food and spend the remainder of the evening here so we moved on.

We selected the Rimrock as we were staying at the Fairmont as a small group and wanted a flexible choice for lunch (actually late brunch) before travelling on Sunday evening. The staff were attentive and friendly and a good range of food was available to suit more and less adventurous tastes. We particularly enjoyed the shrimps and the Alberta rib roast. Good value pricing for seniors too. More

Ethiopian | Downtown, Calgary

Abyssinia Restaurant is here in downtown Calgary to serve you delectable food from the unique and ancient traditional cuisine of Ethiopia and Eritrea. We hope you will find this a truly exciting dining experience while breaking some injera and eating from the same plate with friends and family. Ethiopian food is best known for the spongy sourdough flatbread called Injera, which serves as the ‘spoon’ for lentil, bean, meat, and vegetable dishes served with it. Ethiopian dishes are characterized by the unique variety and combination of spices used to give them their exotic taste. Vegan dishes are also a staple of Ethiopian cuisine, especially during lent and other fasting seasons when most of the Coptic Orthodox Christians temporarily become vegans. Ethiopian cuisine is a delightful experience. Featuring both vegan and meat entrées, it gives you a choice of good nutrition while enjoying its delicate and exotic seasonings.More
