We had an outstanding time with a great waiter and the meal was fabulous and his recommendation of French Pinot Noir was right on! It was a birthday occasion as written through OpenTable and the restaurant made the dessert dish perfect for the celebration, without being asked!

Service and ambience was pretty good, but food was mediocre. The appetizers were alright, nothing special. The entree was quite disappointing, with the beef being extremely dry.

Our favourite restaurant in Calgary to celebrate special occasions. Food is exquisite and the service is great. The wine list is extensive and the sommelier's knowledge is thorough. Never had a bad experience since my family first enjoyed La Chaumiere 30+ years ago.

Amazing classic French restaurant with elegant surroundings and outstanding cuisine. Of note for our dining party - the lobster bisque (made at the table), salad of avocado fan with cucumber, tomatoes and curry dressing, Chateaubriand (finished at the table) and Grand Marnier souffles were all so delicious. Waitstaff was top quality and provided excellent service as one would expect here.

Our nephew worked there during his Chef apprenticeship and recommended it to us. We were not disappointed in the slightest. What a wonderful experience. The service, food and decor were absolutely outstanding. I think no matter what you ordered you would leave totally satisfied. All three of us agreed this was one of the finest dinning experiences we have ever had in a very long time.

C'est magnifique. Wonderful and comfortable old school French restaurant/ambiance, many of which died in last recession. Cuisine is excellent, sauces were succulent like only the French can do. All dishes were prepared just right. Wish I could eat here every night except I'd be obese and broke.

La Chaumiere has been a family favourite for years as a special place to go. The food is great, as well as the service, and you can actually talk to your friends without being blasted by too loud music. The owners make us feel welcome.

Awesome restaurant. Everything wonderful from the gourmet food to the service and personal welcoming of the owner. Truly a magnificent evening. We enjoyed the escargot, hearts of palm salad, rack of lamb Chilean sea bass, very nice wine and grand Marnier soufflé. Would be at the top of our restaurant list next time we visit Calgary.

I did have a lot of trouble however booking with open table. The available times shown were very late and not at all reality with tables available at an earlier time. I had to go into open table multiple times to get earlier time options. Very frustrating, but had I not we might not have even eaten there due to the late reservation options shown. Not sure what happened with the whole reservation system!

Service was great, food was great, ambiance is great, though having the place to ourselves helped a lot. People complaining about the decor just don't appreciate the French aesthetic they've tried to establish. If you're looking for a high class dinner and can pay the high class price, this is a great option.

We really enjoy French food and this is the prefect place if you are looking for that. Ser vice was great and so was the food. The place was a little dated but we didnt mind that at all, it gives the restaurant character. We really enjoyed our experience and will be back for sure.

Our celebratory dinner was a great experience. Notably, the service was top-notch without being intrusive. The servers worked as a team, and our waiter (André, I think it was, from Bordeaux) was excellent in his recommendations for both wine and food. The ambience was friendly and relaxing. It's not your everyday dining experience, but I highly recommend it for something occasional. We will return.

La Chaumière has been a part of the Calgary dining scene for ages and I have only recently returned to it. I was very pleasantly surprised. It is truly fine dining. The restaurant is beautiful. The food is expertly prepared and well thought out and surprisingly reasonably priced, particularly for the quality. I can say the exact same thing about their wine list. The stand-out at this restaurant though, is the service. The waitstaff is interested, experienced, professional and very happy to be practicing their craft on such a deserving institution. I highly recommend this restaurant.
