We found this little gem about four months ago and have eaten there three times since. We very much enjoy the customer service and the food ( the table code Caesar is exceptional as is the scallop starter. Oh and the peanut butter parfait is rich and smooth, I was quite surprised as I’m not generally an ice cream dessert person.
The 49$ 3 course taste menu hits all the marks as it offers something for everyone.
A group of 8 we gathered for a meal and drinks celebrating a birthday. We arrived promptly for our reservation.
We let the server know from the start that we had a time schedule to keep (2 hours) as we had reservations for the evening. The restaurant did not appear to be busy, but service was terribly slow, and the pacing of courses was not well set, we ended up taking desserts to go from our set 3 course meal. It did not appear to be the kitchen behind, but rather the service. We were told table side Caesar wouldn't be possible within our timeline as the servers were too busy to do it.
Our server was hard to locate, as was the front concierge, ) upon leaving, we walked into the coat check room and grabbed our own items as there was no service to be found (how disappointing the items being stored were not secure in any matter).
Overall the food was good, we had 1 steak that was quite overdone, but running low on time couldn't be rectified.
But the service left us sadly disappointed considering the automatic 18% gratuity allotted to our bill.
With a ton of competition in YYC for steak dinners, I'm not sure we'd be in a hurry to go back unless we had the evening to waste.
To say we had a wonderful meal would be an understatement. All of our choices from the warm bread choices, to a fantastic selection of appetizers were a big hit with my guests. The service from Arnell was terrific, although the dining room was quite busy he paid close attention to our table. We thought the steak would be the hit of the night and it was exceptional, however the appetizers really stole the show. A bit pricey but well worth it.
Was the first time we had mediocre service. Started very slow. Improved by the end, however still left a bitter taste. Food was very good. Very sad they took away the table side desert. Only thing left is their Cesear salad. That was the reason we went to Carvers was for that experience. :(
Menu has lots of variety and I strongly recommend the Tableside Caesar which is made right in front of you. Carvers has a very nice wine menu with a price range for all to find a blend they like.
The restaurant did not disclose that they would only offer a fixed menu prior to making the reservation. They called to inform us on the day of our reservation so that left us with no possibility of even considering an alternative.
Valentines Dinner with friends. Food was excellent and atmosphere was very relaxing.
Very good service and food
Quiet. The restaurant was not busy. Service was quick and friendly.
Great ambiance. A bit different from other steak houses in Calgary, making it a nice alternative for those who want a steak with other unique offerings.
Good atmosphere, excellent food, great service. Enjoyed the entire experience.
We had a reservation at Carvers for new years eve, and they did not disappoint. The pre set menu was a classy touch and made the evening an great experience. The food was amazing and the service was great. Will definitely be coming back to check out the regular menu
This is not our first visit, but this little gem should be a go to for date nights or anniversaries. The food is amazing and the wait staff are pleasant quick and very helpful. We went for New Year’s Eve and the meals was crazy good!
Food was fantastic. lovely atmosphere. Worth drive.
Great Service, food was excellent! Definitely recommend this steak house to anyone.
Great food, great service and reasonably priced. Will definitely be back.
The prime rib was done perfctly and the steak was superb, charred on the outside and med rare in the middle. However the sticky toffee pudding was not hot enough nor was there enough caramel. Serving it with ice cream detracted from the flavour.
Carvers always is good food and good quality. The steaks are always cooked just right and the table side prepared Caesar salad is delicious. Definitely will be back!
The food and service at Carvers were top notch and you get more food then expected. The best part of the meal was the amuse bouche the chef prepared that evening. I also had the 10oz prime sirloin and I "oscared" my steak which included shrimp, scallops and a crab claw, everything was perfectly cooked. I will definetly be returning to Carvers and I highly recommend the restaurant to anyone.
Really great food. Good wine selection. Almost empty on the middle of the week, but still was a little noisy.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Fantastic food and service. Looking forward to our next visit.
Went for two birthdays and had OUTSTANDING service! Keep going back for big occasions!
This place lives up to its reviews! Steaks were unreal. Highly recommend the scallops!
Absolutely fantastic meal. So much value added with this place.
Great Staff, Great Food ! Caesar salad is the best. Steak always tender.
Everything was perfect! We couldn't ask for anything else. Ariel was one of the best servers we've met.
Keep it up!
Absolutely everything was perfect!! Service was fantastic. Food was prepared perfectly and all orders were exactly as ordered. Not one negative word could be said!!
The dining was fantastic. There were three of us dining and we each ordered something different. All three meals were done to perfection and we all shared a little of our meal with each other. Steak and lobster has always been a favourite and it was excellent. Great wine selection. Our waiter was wonderful, (I wish I could remember his name)
The food and service was amazing. We had a great evening for my husband's birthday. The little extras they gave us were a very pleasant surprise. It's a little pricey but very nice for a once a year special occasion. My husband talked about his meal for two days. We will probably go again.
The Caesar salad made table side was absolutely fantastic. Steak was cooked perfectly.
Carver's in my opinion is the best steak in Calgary.

LOVE this RESTAURANT
Attentive service, tasty food, good choice of wines, great ambiance, easy parking. Very limited beer selection
Small portions for a lot of money. Stuffy atmosphere. Good service but not a date place.
the staff were awesome, the ambiance awesome, but we came here for the steak which i had filet med rare and lobster but for the price i was very disappointed in the steak because it was dry (although red in the middle) i honestly had a better steak the next day at some random pub that we were at for 15.00. the crab cakes awesome and lobster awesome but steak not so much
one of the greatest steakhouse I have ever been. food is great and personnel is awesome !
Fantastic evening! Food was wonderful! Warm Brie cheesecake is outstanding!! Our server, Jonathan , was attentive and knowledgeable.
Fantastic food, service and atmosphere. The steak was cooked to perfection and amuse bouche amazing.
I would recommend Carvers to anyone looking for a great fine dining experience. It has an almost "old world" feel to the excellent service.
Not knowing the area, this turned out to be a very nice place for a business meal. Thanks again Open Table.
The service was exceptional. The sides were tasty and presented well. The steaks were cooked perfect. However they were surprisingly thin and a bit over seasoned. When I order a 16 oz. ribeye, I expect a thick cut, not 1/2 inch.
