Great food, can’t wait to go back. Music was a little loud, made for conversations hard at times.

Not very good with Covid measures frankly. Won’t go back. The food is good but all quite heavy. I found the really sweet squash side with my fish overwhelmed the fish which was very well and interestingly prepared. The pasta was good but a bit thick. The burger was good but messy. The angus beef was good but not great compared to other Calgary restaurants. The pierogies dish was very large and probably tastiest.

Had a wonderful date night, we felt very safe, all cleanliness protocols were in place. Server was very helpful with questions we had. The perogies and kale salad were a delicious starter and the fried chicken is always a favorite. We look forward to dining again soon!

The noise level was much too high due to loud music being played. We asked to have it turned down but could not discern any difference. Wine selection by the glass was not appealing.

Everything was going well until this terrible music came on to ruin the end of the night. We even asked the server if they were doing this on purpose to clear the remaining guests. It was the equivalent to death metal only , death metal would have been welcomed at that point.

I know everyone is always trying to find the IT new thing, but this place is a true classic, and continues to set the bar high. I was reminded this why I need to bring this one back into my regular dining out spots. The food, the service, is the best in the city right now. Thanks Model Milk!!!!

The service was IMPECCABLE! Just really outstanding in all ways. The team worked together to clear and bring dishes and drinks which added to how seamless it was. Servers wearing masks, tables cleaned thoroughly. Used gloves for clearing dishes. Food was tasty, knowledgeable about the wines on the list. Was very happy with everything. Would be perfect for an anniversary or special occasion if it was this high quality on a regular Wednesday night.

I did really enjoy the meal; their fried chicken was amazing! I did find the beef dish just mediocre, and a few of the other dishes were good, but not great. Service was also quick and efficient and decor was lovely.

Having said that (and this is unique) the music that was playing was awful. I have an eclectic interest in music (including indie and alternative which I believe this was) and found it was outright distracting at times. Overall a positive experience however that I would recommend.

Food is delicious. Went for the pre-fixe courses. If you are getting the pre-fixe meal, definitely get the apple pie for dessert as the wagon wheel was a disappointment, but the apple pie was AMAZING!
