Escoba Bistro and Wine Bar
A fantastic lunch!
Great experience, but would have liked more food options
Amazing as always!
Food was good, but the cappuccino was pretty sad. Black coffee with milk foam on top fell short.
We loved the wine tasting option. Great menu, lots of interesting options, and the food was lovely.
Beautiful server who knew her stuff and her recommendations were spot on!
Loved it and see you next time I am in town!
The food and service were excellent however ambience and decor in the restaurant needs to be updated for the level of food and expense the restaurant wants to charge.
One of the best meals I have had for some time. The carpaccio was amazing!!
Dinner was perfect , service was fast and attentive. Salmon was delicious, great ambiance couldn’t have asked for a better date night.
Best salmon I've ever had!! Service was impeccable.
Fantastic food and wonderful ambiance of the place. Looking forward to my next visit.
Great food with very thoughtful service. Wine list was impressive as well. Highly recommend for date night.
The whole experience was fantastic. Love that you guys joined the YYC food and eats expo it gave us the opportunity to come by and experience your beautiful establishment. I will definitely come again.
I came with my family and we selected from the YYC food and drink experience menu. The food was better than average but the service was not great. Food was very slow coming out (even though when we arrived there weren't a lot of people) and the server was not particularly attentive nor did she seem experienced in serving/clearing.
As for the food, my husband ordered the seared salmon. He said the searing was excellent but the fish was a little overcooked. My son enjoyed the buttered chicken. My daughter and I had the chickpea stew...I rated it about a 3 out of 5. It was good, but not the best value for the price of the set menu. We all very much enjoyed the cheesecake dessert.
Delicious food. Great service
We decided to try Escoba Bistro and Wine Bar because of the YYC Taste and Drink Experience and it was good. The selection of items was more than most of the restaurants that were participating in the event. We My husband and I shared the choice of two appetizers and both were very good. We chose the salmon and beef over the chicken and vegetarian option and were very pleased. The entrees were beautifully plated and were excellent flavourful meals. The portion sizes for a tasting menu was on the generous side. Dessert again we shared the two choices available and again were not disappointed with either selection.
Our waitress was an excellent server. Knowledgeable, efficient all while being friendly, warm and welcoming. We were a little dissatisfied with where we were seated since we had made reservations and the restaurant was virtually empty however we made the best of the cramped little table. The restaurant quickly filled and before long we did feel even more cramped and the noise level from the table next and the restaurant in general took away from the overall positive experience. Not certain really what a restaurant could do in this situation but it did take away from our enjoyment.
I would recommend going to Escoba Bistro and would go again.
I can’t say enough about Escoba, it’s without a doubt my favourite restaurant downtown.
The paella is outstanding and my friend had the chicken and scallops, it’s his “go to” entree; he said it’s amazing.
Vickie, our server, is awesome, unobtrusive and efficient. Very friendly and always remembers me.
The place has a very Spanish feel, it’s lovely!
Blair and Laurel, you do a heck of a job.
The sampler appetizers were fantastic! Presentation was great and the entrees were delicious! Definitely recommend!
I took a customer to lunch on a Wednesday. It was a treat to have such great staff and excellent food.
Great food and service. They are extremely knowledgeable about their wine liat
Escoba is a go to destination for me. The food is excellent, the service attentive and never annoying, and best of all you can converse with your party! Ambience is perfect for a business lunch or romantic dinner. Their Tiger Rose pasta dish is to die for!
Really nice food and great ambiance
Great food and excellent service, what else can you want......Never been disappointed with Escoba.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and we truly appreciate your patronage. See you again soon!
Chicken and Chorizo!
Thank you for sharing your rating - the Chicken & Chorizo and one of our favourites too!
Best restaurant I've ever eaten at. Everything on the menu is excellent from the appetizers to the desserts. Definitely worth every penny. You won't be disappointed in anything on the menu!
Wow! Thank you very much for your continued patronage and taking the time to share your praise! We look forward to your next visit :)
Escobar is a very nice restaurant for both personal and professional events. One of my favourites in Calgary
The food was good and the server was very pleasant. However, we did a set menu paired with wine for Valentines and the appetizer took quite a long time to come which was odd. After that everything was great. Not sure if they got a little behind or if something went wrong in the kitchen. We will go back though!!
Hi Colin, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We apologize that we started off with a small hiccup and greatly appreciate your understanding. Hope to see you soon!
It was fantastic. We had the Valentine chefs menu. Those short rib spring rolls were amazing. Incredible. The waitress seemed very unsure of herself and must have been brand new. She was ok. The steak was a bit over salted (and I like salt) and the cod was the only thing on the menu that we really didn’t like. We additionally ordered the tiger rose pasta and it was amazing as well and so was the desert. Thank you so much. We will definitely be back
Great food service and atmosphere. Definitely will be back
Great food served perfectly will definitely be back!
Very good. Seating by the window was pretty darn cold. Cold feet for much of the time I was seated. Luckily my date had snow boots on...just not me.
Food was great, we had the squid to start which was perfectly spiced and cooked. For our mains We had the duck and ribeye, the ribeye was cooked perfectly and salted to my liking. The duck was very rich with a great mushroom risotto that pulled it all together. For desert we went with the taster and it was a perfect amount of all their best items, almost order a second it was that delicious. We dined in the wine cage which was a very unique and personal place, staff was excellent as well. Will be going back soon.
Food and service were amazing, staff is friendly and the Valintine's day menu was fantastic
Steak wasn’t cooked good ribeye too rare.

Great tenderloin and great service. I have been back twice now and both times my experience was good.
It was such an amazing experience! Our server was phenomenal and knowledgeable about the menu, the atmosphere was quiet and intimate. Best outing in awhile 💜
Great quality. Food is never a disappointment. Overall in my view the most consistent restaurant downtown offering a great selection of food and wines.
Excellent food, service, and atmosphere.
