CLEAVER Ratings and Reviews
I met up with a couple girlfriends here for dinner/drinks and loved the food and atmosphere but our waitress was so so. I found the server very forward and pushy for us to order our main meal. We find out that they have a 2hr max seating. Not impressed by this at all!! We were enjoying ourselves, appies and cocktails and in no rush but the server put a real damper on the evening once she conveyed this to us. They let us stay because they had a couple empty tables but because of this I don't think I'd go back. I hate being rushed! If this hadn't happened, I'd definitely go back.
Cleaver has a great vibe to it, and the beverages offered are to die for. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and give great suggestions off of their menu. Very happy with my overall experience. The Cleaver Stack was not only such a great Instagram post, bust tasted hella scrumptious. Also highly recommend the "Slap Yo Momma" cocktail. And GO for their happy hour, $5 doubles you cannot go wrong.
Best happy hour in Calgary, hands down. Amazing sliders and cocktails and never waited more than what felt like 5-10 minutes for food or drink which was extremely impressive, especially once it had started to pick up a bit. I don't recall our servers name, but he was very friendly and helpful and definitely made our experience that much better.
I have been to Cleaver many times before and always enjoyed the experience until the last visit. We booked for brunch and enjoyed the meal, until our bill appeared on the table before the server had even asked if we needed anything else. We weren't done visiting and said that we would like to order another drink, when we were told that we couldn't because the booking was for only an hour through OpenTable (untrue, and if bookings are only made for a 60 minutes - which is remarkably short - the restaurant can state this on the booking, which no statement was made). When they said we had to go because our table was required, there was the majority of the bar open, the table next to us finished with plates waiting to be cleared and ready to pay, as well as 2 other tables in the restaurant in the same position. We ended up just paying and going elsewhere, but the entire experience left a bad taste with the entire group.
I enjoy Cleaver and I will say that I haven't experienced service on that level before so I hope it is not a continuing event for other people, but it will be some time before I return. There are so many great restaurants around, its really no problem to go somewhere they won't rush you through a meal and then tell you you can't order anything else. Unfortunate.
We stumbled across this gem over a year ago. Plank Monday + Happy Hour = Incredible! We have been back almost bi-weekly since??
This particular time we returned for planks and happy hour cocktails, and ended up staying straight through high-time until the next happy hour started! As always, the chicken was amazing and juicy and the cocktails were delicious. Our server Christine was very friendly and on-point for getting our next round ordered. Drinks and food arrived very quickly!
Casual, but classy atmosphere... cozy, yet lively... great music...
We love Cleaver!!
Cleaver was a relatively busy and noisy place. It was really hard to talk to my friend over all the noise, and near the end we just gave up trying to hear each other. The food is very creative, mixing a lot of savory and sweet flavors. However the main courses are not well balanced meals, mine had a disproprtionate amount of cheese compared to other ingredients (I had a pizette). I recommend for a very casual, adventurous eaters who don’t want to talk.
Great cocktails, and dinner. Service was really good. Only downside from the night is the time limit they place on the tables isn’t nearly long enough. We were moved once and then ended up having to leave. It’s good for a quick bite but not for visiting for a while. Good for small groups of 2-4 only. For all the money we spent there, it would have been nice to take our time there and not be rushed out the door.
We were rushed as soon as we got to our table since we were 5 min late to the reservation. We were told that the next reservation was going to be arriving in under 1.5hrs. Truffle fries were amazing! Cocktails were average. Also, the servers kept asking to take away our plates when we were still eating. Had a reservation for a table not alternative seating to be sat at the bar with all the servers watching us eat and drink. I will not return.
