We went for Mother's Day and considering the number of people, the service was very good. Food was mixed. The New England clam chowder was very good. The crab cakes were passable but not the best. The brochette was decent but again lacked the wow factor. The halibut was nicely done. The problem was that the menu said it was to come with bruschetta. That consisted of a bunch of small tomato halves. If the 2 microscopic green leaves that cam with it had been increased dramatically it would have made the dish excellent as they held some tasty spices but no such luck. The deep fried seafood was average. All and all the food was well done but boring.

Octopus was excellent- succulent and not rubbery. Scallops and shrimp also very tasty. Then had the special - good value. Halibut was good but eagerly waiting for the fresh halibut to come in soon. Always a satisfying meal with good service

I typically go for the Manitoba Pickerel as it is perfect every time and when I feel like indulging I will order the fish and chips, either Haddock or Halibut, they are both done to perfection. There are a lot more delicious choices on the menu but you can never go wrong with the fish. Service is excellent, the place is perfect for business lunches but have been there for group and evening events and they are always a great experience too. Cheers

Absolutely stellar food - the only problem was they try to fill you up on bread before the main course arrives!

Other than that, a very quiet ambiance and very friendly staff make this a perfect early supper place for anyone walking in riverside Calgary

Dinner was delicious and restaurant is beautiful. My only complaint would be that they chose to put my girlfriend and I at a table in an area where there was a party of 12. While fairly busy, there were other tables available. Predictably it was quite loud and made our special birthday dinner not nearly as enjoyable.

I was pleasantly surprised. We went for a lunch and had a seafood salad. Lots of seafood and excellent flavors! The prices were less than some of the more common places such as earls. It was quiet and we could have a pleasant discussion. Highly recommend!

We eat out a lot, and this place was a quite disappointment for us. Service was nice. The food was plain... lacks of flavour at all, not tasty. My husband who likes spicy food asked for some spicy dip or sauce to add to that plain food, but the restaurant had nothing to offer. The dishes we ordered cost $31 each, but they are not worth this money at all! When we came for a dinner at this place, we expected to have a delicious seafood meal. Instead we had a few pieces of seafood, 5 huge plain pieces of carrots, and tasteless rice. We will not come to this place again.

Very nice! We had a very friendly server who recommended the grilled octopus (it was excellent), and we had a half dozen fresh oysters as well, which were some of the better oysters I've had, both just very fresh.

We had gone the day after Valentine's day so it was still a reduced menu, but we had the shrimp and scallop papardelle, and the Chilean sea bass, both were very nice. The sea bass was quite simple with minimal accompaniments (just steamed vegetables) so I felt it was maybe slightly overpriced, but I would order it again, it was exceptionally moist.

When we walked in host didn’t even look up to say hello as we stood there for about 3 min, then a lady walked over took us to a table didn’t ask or care if we had a reservation or not.
Server was great at first then seemed to busy to come back and get us the things we needed when supper came like a knife so I had to use my husbands steak knife to cut my veggies and potato up didn’t offer pepper and when came back with our drinks I had to ask for pepper and meal was almost done.
Portion size of appetizers and meal were small and average for taste.

Service from our waitress Vivian was terrific - we took our time ordering, but she was very attentive. The arctic char was very tasty but just a touch dry. The Alaska King Crab was very good - so sweet and tender, although quite pricey. Overall a 4 out of 5.
