We are participating in the exemptions restriction program. To dine with us you will require Gov't ID AND Proof of valid vaccination OR proof of negative test within 72 hours (private not AHS test) OR proof of medical exemption.

The Mediterranean influenced cuisine paired with great wine and exceptional service. Located in the Calgary downtown core we are well accustomed to the hustle and bustle of the corporate lunch crowd and delight in the opportunity to serve our clientele both efficiently and consistently with our good old-fashioned familiar Escoba ways. Our evenings are a bit more quiet and perfect for catching up with an old friend, getting a bite to eat before or after a movie, or even just an impromptu drink and bite with family... did we mention we also host private events for a variety of sizes? We hope to serve you soon!

This was my first time to this restaurant. It has a very nice ambiance with great food and service. Took my wife there for her birthday and they made it special. They even changed the music in the restaurant to a birthday song when they brought out a free dessert. Nice touch. Definitely recommend.

Escoba is one of my favourite restaurants in Calgary. The food is always delicious, the service is great, and it is a great location to host a business lunch or afternoon wine and appetizers - for two or for a larger group.

Great place. Lovely decor and wine menu, amazing service from genuine servers (not fake American style). The music was ruining the ambience for me as they were playing 80s ballads despite the gorgeous decor and menu which gave a more mellow, sophisticated vibe. When I politely mentioned this to our server she immediately changed the music and she totally understood what I meant. It brought my experience up from a 4 star to a 5 star one. Decent food, great wine and a lovely experience for our anniversary. Thank you!

We had a seat by the open windows. Someone started operating heavy machinery across the street making it impossible to talk. The serving staff swiftly reacted and moved us into the back room so we could enjoy our lunch and conversation.
