We had a lovely dining experience. Even though I have different things to say about 3 things. First, the worst thing about this restaurant is the decor and ambiance, I thought it would be so much nicer than it is. It’s not terrible, but I expected more. Second, the food. It was soooo good. We did have one dish that was not up to our expectations which brings me to the third, the service. Our server was amazing! She made awesome recommendations, went out of her way to make our evening enjoyable and when we had an issue with one of the dishes, she took it off our tab with no questions asked. We also stayed later than closing time and we did not feel rushed to leave at all. Overall we had such a great evening here. Oh and I must add that the feature cocktail was awesome and the bottle of rose we shared was the best I have ever had! Overall, amazing!
Our server was polite, pleasant, fast and on time.
We ordered three plates to share, the octopus crepes were my favourite of these.
After a short break we had the lobster broth, and the steam buns. The flavours and textures made my day.
No regrets, I’ll be back for the rest of the menu.
Outstanding on all fronts - Cuisine, service, decor, ambience and the welcoming nature of the team and chefs.
Food is excellent, the only problem was that it was a hot evening in Calgary and because the office bldg above has control of the heat and air conditioning it was super hot in there. We went on a Saturday evening and because the offices above closed on Friday the air was off... bummer! Hope Foreign Concept somehow gets control of the air soon!
Awesome food, atmosphere and beautifully designed interior! Great service too. We will be back again soon!
We went to this restaurant after seeing the chef on top chef Canada. The food did not disappoint. It was one of the best dining experiences We have had in Calgary, which has some excellent options. The duck was superb, the tuna carpaccio even better, and the steam buns were remarkable.
Foreign Concept is one of my favorite restaurants in Calgary. I go to lots of restaurants that serve food that is amazing but you have had it before... FC serves food you have never had before. Your reaction is... This is something different and unique
I took my husband here for his birthday! It was truly amazing! The food, service, ambiance were all so lovely. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking a nice evening out.
We ended up having more people than the reservation quoted and the host and server were very accommodating. They were quick to add extra chairs and make it work. The lunch was delicious!
Great service, excellent meal!
From Start to finsh, an incredible experience. The food, the drink and the service was great!A++ Definitely will be back!
Very tasty grilled shrimp bowl. Light lunch but it could have used 1 or 2 more shrimp for the $18 price. Will return to try another dish sometime.
The flavours and presentation were absolutely fabulous. The food was incredible. If you only go out once in a while, this is great choice.
Had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday here with 6 others. One of my friends is gluten free and dairy free and she could enjoy the majority of the items. Our server was very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend and go back!
Had dinner with my brother and his girlfriend from Edmonton. Food, service, restaurant as a whole was great!!! Have been to the restaurant a number of times and I have not been disappointed. Always very happy with everything.
Came in after seeing Executive Chef Jinhee on Top Chef episode 1. We were not disappointed! The food is easily amongst the best in Calgary; this is now one of our favorite local restaurants. We ordered and would recommend the cha siu dish, the seafood dish and the tofu mushroom small plate. These were outstanding and our favorites. The drinks menu has a good selection, the restaurant is airy and has a nice Asian decor. We dine in Chicago’s reputable culinary scene on a regular basis. Foreign Concepts stacks up to Chicago’s best in my opinion.
It was our first time in the restaurant and we liked it. The flavors are great - from the charcuterie to the char siu pork belly with foie gras - they were delightful!
We will be back!
Love the unusual combinations of flavors, spices at Fushion Concept. Service was exceptional; fast, attentive and so warm and welcoming. The tuna burger I had was out of this world! Menu super creative and made it difficult to choose what to eat. I am quite a good cook and a bit of a foodie and totally recommend this place. Was here for lunch but want to come back for dinner and enjoy the bar scene as well as it too seemed very cozy and had a great atmosphere with its colored lanterns. Will be back soon. Thanks for a memorable, enjoyable meal.
We visited on a cold and snowy lunch hour recently. The restaurant was pleasant and comfy oasis. Our server with her pleasant smile and friendly service added to the ambience. Steak sandwich, a Tuscan salad and a Ahi tuna burger were all very tasty lunch fair. A very good lunch experience but a little pricey for portion size.
Do yourself a favour and just go! Beautifully prepared food and exceptional service. I went with a large-ish group (6 people), which was ideal because we were able to order a wide variety of dishes. Every dish was deliciously balanced and unique.
As we were eating we were already planning our next visit, which tells you something :)
Loved the place and the food we were able to eat but won't be back. We mostly eat vegetarian and the options here were severely limited, even adapting some items. Change that and we would come back pronto though.
Great food and service. Will definitely go back. Highly recommend a visit.
Delicious, inventive flavor combinations that are sure to impress. Service was fantastic, overall a great experience. We will come back again!
A fantastic restaurant with amazing food and service!
A chef will tell you that first you eat with your eyes. The dishes we experienced were not only beautifully presented; but also a taste experience of perfectly executed and wonderfully flavored fusion. Our server was so friendly and took the time to help me navigate the menu to accommodate gluten free requirements. We decided on 2 small plates and 2 large to share. The smalls (tuna tartar and roasted eggplant) arrived first as appetizers and were so delicious. My husband is not a fan of eggplant, however the server's recommendation was spot on - as it was a firm texture with great spices. The main plates - Angus beef and Alberta trout continued the journey of interesting, complex Asian flavors arranged with color and flare. The delicate desserts did not disappoint. We chose the restaurant for a special date night and found the decor, ambiance and service to be perfect. I would recommend to anyone looking for a unique dining experience.
Food & service is off the hook!
Tasty with a hip vibe and great cocktails!
A must go any chance we get – the food is excellent and not an item we didn’t love!
New items like the Octopus Chinese bacon crapes are killer had two orders!!
This is our jam – modern Asian and chefs with tons of talent!!
IF you like super flavourful Asian food this is the spot!!
We decided, on a whim, to dine at Foreign Concept, somewhat last minute but had the foresight to make a reservation.... good thing we did! This place gets busy!!! Small wonder, though. With a delicious menu of unique flavours, it's easy to see why this restaurant is so popular, especially on a Saturday evening. Friendly service and wonderful food makes this a definite entry on our "go-to" list.
So good! If you appreciate attention to detail and food textures this is the place. Best dish we had was the tuna carpaccio. Has all the elements of a perfect dish: salt, sweetness, acid, hint of spice, crunch of compressed apple with soft, rich tuna. Second best was the eggplant then the imperial rolls. Also excellent were the lemon chicken and squash-green mange salad. Highly recommend for a group of 4-6 to try more dishes! Kudos to the chef and team! Impressive.
Foreign Concept is our new favorite Calgary restaurant! Incredibly interesting dishes with layers of flavours yet fresh and light. It’s not often that I want to return to try out the rest of the menu but I would with this fabulous place.
What an awesome experience. The service and food were fantastic and the tastes are so eclectic and fulfilling. Definitely memorable.
Foreign Concept is a gem... always consistently great food and service!
The tuna was amazing, service exceptional. I am excited to go back!
Every course was spot on. Creative food that is visually very appealing. The taste does not disappoint.
Amazing food! Consistent. One of our favorites for sure!
Fusion food with great balance of taste from Korea, Vietnam, Chinese and Japan. Few menu items are changed but the all time favourites are still there.
We were there early 515 because that’s the only reservation we could get. Fair enough it was Big Taste. The waiter was fairly knowledgeable about the food but then he insisted that the wine I wanted was being replaced by another wine which was ‘the same’ I just expected the service to be higher end. It was just ok.
Food was pretty good, though my hanger steak was not tough (I expected it to be a little tough) it was grisly. Couldn’t swallow several pieces.
Flavours were good tho.
Visit was decent but I wouldn’t likely return. Too many other options in Calgary to repeat mediocrity.
Food was mediocre at best.
Great food, fun atmosphere. Service was a tad slow, but was during the Big Taste week so we didn’t mind
