went here for dinner and was pleasantly surprised with the service. the place has a relaxed atmosphere and the sound from the live band is not overpowering that you can still have a conversation. decent price and free underground parking is a plus.

Limited brunch options but what was offered was delicious. New brunch menu will be available by the end of February.

My boyfriend and I loved this place so much. We went on a Saturday night and there was a live pianist who played hits from the 40s to 90s. Food and drinks were delicious as well. We stayed for hours just singing along and watching couples dance. Amazing place, highly recommend!

Long wait for main course, then only two meals showed up. We were told that the pizza was burned so the third person would get their meal in another 20-25 minutes. No apology or query as to whether she wanted something else or if they could get her something in the meantime. When I commented we were told “ we are doing our best” and the server just left. No offer to reduce the price or acknowledgement that it is not ideal to have two people eating while the third waits. We spoke to the manager at the end of the meal when we got the full bill and he was kind EuroEcho apologize and discount the bill. The food was disappointing....far poorer than on our previous meals there, and that just added to the disappointment. All it would have taken from the server was a more understanding and proactive attitude to make this less of a bad experience. We will certainly not return.

I wanted to review higher, and I will try 1918 again, but as of now I would definitely not recommend to others. The food was very good, but we were there for over 2 hours to have an entree and dessert delivered, and there were only 5 tables full in the restaurant. It was frustrating to see other tables come in after us and get their orders and desserts before us. The server did their best to explain the wait, and did offer a discount on the bill which was generous. I am hopeful that the next time we go the experience will be better.

My husband and I were looking for a casual place to grab dinner before the ballet. Being we were booking last minute on a Saturday night, there were limited options which would ensure a reservation so to eat and be done in time to not be late for the show. This was easily accommodated including not only getting a table but also speed of service. We were very impressed with how nice of a room it was! Very upscale rustic chic. Best part of the whole experience was though? How incredible the food was!! My husband had a simple burger which was great but I had the Arctic char which could easily have been a dish at a fine dining restaurant. Other notable comments: service was pleasant and efficient, wine was cheap and good, and management is present / communicative to the guests. Great experience!

Restaurant has alot of potential to being great. Its the little things that count and was lacking, the visual of stacked patio chairs, length of time to be acknowledged upon arrival. The food was okay.

The service was excellent and really enjoyed the ambience. Both my boyfriend and I got pizza's - my pizza was lukewarm to cool and both by the end of the meal were soggy and just plain unenjoyable. We got a perogies starter, which was good and clearly made from scratch, but there were only 3 small perogies in the dish. We also got the cheesecake for dessert, which we found very dry. Overall, we might go back for drinks some day on the patio or after work due to great service and ambience but nix the dinner.

What a great way to support Canadian veterans and the community! We tried 1918 Tap and Table for dinner on New Year's Eve. The food was very good: inviting comfort food is what the 1918 Tap and Table website says they aim to serve and we think they hit the mark bang on. Service was excellent. We will definitely go back and look forward to enjoying good food and refreshment on the patio when weather permits.

We went to 1918 for our son’s birthday, not realizing it was run by the Legion as a nonprofit which was a nice bonus. The food was exceptional. Started with the cracklings which I haven’t had I had outside Britain. Very good! I had the Arctic Char which was cooked to perfection and elegantly presented in a lobster broth with clams and fingerling potatoes. My son had the ribeye which was perfectly cooked and delicious. Everything was reasonably priced for the quality. The service was a tiny bit slow but well paced for a “dining” experience. Noise level was good- there was a pleasant hub bub but we could easily hear each other speak. The only complaint was that there could have been a wider selection of Alberta craft beer as they advertise “locally sourced” and there were only a couple beers on offer. Overall, we enjoyed it and plan to return!

Slightly unusual service, perhaps busier than expected? I was told there was no “braised red cabbage” after all for the short rib dish, but was offered a choice of a couple of things in lieu. That was acceptable, but the scalloped potatoes that came with the short ribs tasted weird - after a couple of bites I ate no more. When the server was taking the plate away, I asked if there was goat cheese in the scalloped potatoes. The server returned with the news that indeed there was, and asked did I have an allergy. No, but scalloped potatoes is a pretty standard recipe - if you’re going to alter it in such a way, it should be described in the menu! Although the server offered to bring me something else, or to treat me to a coffee or dessert, I didn’t really want anything - except for the menu description to be changed!
The restaurant itself is quite beautiful, the location is good, the parking is great...

This restaurant is not up to standard. The service was slow and incompetent. The food while cooked properly just wasn’t good. If I wanted a burger with processed cheese I will go to Mickey D’s. I also had mushroom soup that can only be described as tasteless and gritty.

The decor and ambience was well done. Food was ok. One of our meals came out cold, the other two were alright. Once we were able to get our servers attention, we got a replacement meal that was cooked. Lots of staff, lighting was a little bright but not loud so you could carry on normal volume conversations. It was nice to see kids in there as well. It wasnt too busy but still had enough people to give it a nice vibe.

Batter on fish and chips was soggy with little taste. Coleslaw had little taste.
Pork schnitzel didn’t have much taste and could have been crispier.
Chocolate cake was on the dry side.
