Very good food and service. Little pricey though, portions are not overly big.
Atmosphere and views are outstanding though.

Service & food were great but we specifically went to experience the “Sunday Supper”....family style supper, jazz, free corkage. The family supper menu wasn’t really speaking to any of us so we decided to order on the regular menu. Which was fine. But the Jazz was the disappointing part...it was great when they were playing but they took lots of breaks and ended early in our opinion.

A one dollar charge for tap water is an insult and is the reason that I will not be returning.

Our first visit to the Dean House roughly 2 years after the place opened. We were happy to see they offer a chef's tasting with wine pairings so we tried that and it didn't disappoint. The portions (food & wine) were above average for a tasting which made it a very good value. The service was spot on and we would definitely go back.

Given this is part of River Cafe I probably had too high expectations. I ordered the cod... it was bland and dry despite being accompanied by a curry sauce. I had the cheesecake for dessert... very gummy taste. Not at all pleasant. Ambience is lovely. Service is first class . But food is middling considering the potential for it to be so much better. I won’t come back. Alas.

Holiday brunch was amazing!
Service, selection and quality were all top shelf.
We had a variety of ages and special needs and they came through with flying colours.
From gluten free selections to vegetarian to meat lovers. All with a focus on sustainability, and where possible, local ingredients made in-house.
Very knowledgeable service staff and all food was fresh to order and well prepared.
Well done. Returning for a supper soon.
A wee bit noisy due to mass amounts of windows (hard surfaces) but a small price to pay for great views we had.
Highly recommend.

This place was beautiful. There's history to be found online and the staff were friendly and fun. We joked with them about unusual menu items (Beef cheek pyrogies) and then ordered them. Proved to be the best lunch I've had in YYC in quite sometime. Do not skip the soup!! Enjoy.

A quiet Tuesday for lunch which made it great to have a nice conversation with a friend. Food was fantastic and our waitress was exceptional in explaining the menu, very knowledgeable re the wine list, very friendly and cheerful and over all just a delight to have her as our waitress. My visits there never disappoint.

We have been to the Deane House several times and the food is always excellent. Strangely the house was not decorated for Christmas which was a disappointment, as we had planned a festive brunch with friends. We got to the restaurant and we stood at the host/hostess station for a few minutes; there was no acknowledgement by other staff or any hostess. We finally noticed her sitting at the bar on her phone. This was quite odd as we are used to great service at the Deane House. We decided to look for our friends and they were already seated. Our server gave great service which made up for this hiccup. We all had the Trout Benedict with a side of bacon to share. The included hash browns were somewhat overfried but otherwise our meal was stellar.

Reserved a table for two, and we were placed in a room with a very noisy table of 8, against a wall. I could not hear my partner speaking for the majority of the meal, had to ask waitress to repeat herself etc. Food was overall good.

If you reserve, ask for a table along the farthest west wall of the restaurant. Overall somewhat disappointed with my experience. Would recommend the restaurant rethink seating in that area.

If you are looking for a relaxing dining experience, it doesn't really fill the bill. It "may" be more so when not sitting near the bar area, but not the soft atmosphere/music that I expected.

I wanted to go here because of the old house aspect of it that it used to have. The renos, while they look nice have dampened that part of the ambience.

I think my boar tenderloin was undercooked, I would have considered it in the rare category and too rare for my taste. They don't serve a Vodka and orange, because they only serve fruit that are in season.
I would not consider going back

Our get-together for a birthday celebration was five stars for everything! The special room at the front was wonderful for viewing the scenery outside and was quiet enough to easily carry on a conversation. The server was very knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly. The food was delicious. The chicken dish for two was simply amazing! There was so much yummy food. Will definitely return but I’m afraid the bar has been set so high now. 😃👌

The Deane House defines class. A bit like the Fairmont that way. Not for normal - something special, but not too formal either. Crisp, clean, and service - right there. We split the Danish, eggs benedict, and sausage. Lots of food for two. Relaxed … spent a lot of time watching the squirrel in the tree adjacent the window - I guess that pretty much says it all. Looking forward to next time.
