This was my second time out with my wife since the pandemic started. We saw the ratings online and wanted to give Gorilla Whale a shot. The quality of food was amazing. Great experience overall. We will be back.
We chose Gorilla Whale as our first date night away from our new baby and we were very happy with everything! Service was very efficient, food was delicious and it has a cool vibe and casual but classy atmosphere. Hot chicken donburi and pork steam buns were our favourite plus they had a nice beer list and great cocktails. Only comment would be it would have an affordable bottled wine option. Overall everything was excellent however.
portion size was very small for the extreme price of each item.
Favourite in the neighbourhood. Great as always!
Such yummy food and our waiter was great!
OMG! So yummy!! The food and drinks were amazing! The atmosphere was fun and lively. The restaurant made us feel safe with extra cleaning and spaces tables. Our waitress was friendly but a little busy. I think she appreciated that we weren’t in a hurry - just needed some grown up time and told her we didn’t want to be rushed.
Food, service and ambiance are top quality
So happy we finally got a chance to get there and will definitely be back! Food and drinks were fantastic and had awesome service!
Our new favorite, we cannot get over how unreal every detail was!! MUCH LOVE
This was a great experience! We visited for a Saturday morning brunch and had the place to ourselves, the space is cozy and comfortable, very attentive service, and the food was beyond delicious. Tempura Soft Shell Crab Benedict....this is what dreams are made of :) I was also treated to the Japanese donut bites for my birthday, so thoughtful!
We had a fantastic meal here with great ramen and cocktails. The server was very friendly and helpful. The place is very cool but not intimidating. Prices are definitely on the higher side, but we had a great time and would go back for sure.
Fantastic experience! Food and service were great!
Our 1st and definitely not our last visit. The food, drinks and dessert were delicious. Service was excellent the vibe was relaxing.
Incredible food as always, the team here never disappoints. Great happy hour deals too.
Fantastic food and great options on the menu. Some great house cocktails. Really recommend starting with sticks for appies. Looking forward to the next time we go.
Wonderful food and experience. The service was great and it was amazing to be able to sit at a bar again to have a delicious meal.
Been wanting to come here for years, did not disappoint. Highlight of the night, cocktails and yakitori. Highlight HIGHLIGHT of the night, get the pork belly yakitori! Great ambiance, very well executed food!
Good food, service average. Play loud rap music which interferes with conversation.
You’re given an hour thirty for reso, but the order wasn’t taken right away. We were 45 mins into reso before the first plate came out. Food is good. And music was good.
Great eats! And great service!
The music is a spoken word style with heavy beats. Always felt like someone was yelling at you while you were trying to have a conversation with your date. That’s the only issue we had, food was great and service was great!
We had such a great experience at Gorilla Whale. Our server was very prompt, friendly, and helpful. Our food came quickly and it was all fresh with amazing flavours and textures. The music was awesome - I wish I had their playlist!! The atmosphere was great too. Everything was top notch. We will be back!! Highly recommend!!
Absolutely adore Gorilla Whale! Second time here, and many more to come. Some of the best food in the city, love the ambiance in the restaurant, fantastic music! Servers really know how to read a table, know when to interact and when to give you space. Can’t rave about this place enough!
This establishment has quickly become our favourite in Calgary. The food, the service and the sake are awesome! I highly recommend!
Always love dining here. Great room and atmosphere with genuine and personal service. The food is always delicious
This place is a bit of a hidden gem.
Not as many people know about it... but they should. I have never had anything disappointing come out of this kitchen.
ALL AMAZING! Well done to that staff and owners being able to keep going!
Pre-Valentine’s Day brunch was amazing. The tables are all spaced out well and the personnel were all wearing masks making us all feel assured that they were doing what they can to comply with the regulations.
Food were delicious. I ordered the soft shell crab Benny while hubby ordered the karage sandwich. Tasty and freshly made - the dishes were exactly what we hoped for!
We will be back!
It was as it advertises to be and more than I expected the food was exciting and delicious, with a bit of great and loud music to feel we were really out on the town and at someplace special.
Good Covid measures in place.
Fantastic happy hour drink deal. The chicken ramen was excellent.
Absolutely amazing food, cocktails, and service. One of the best date nights in Calgary.
Always an outstanding, up beat vibe with fantastic food and drinks!
Sake menu delightful
Food was mighty tasty and high kicks to the staff
Be back for brunch!
Super fun unique dining experience. Great for a date or night out with friends.
Tasty last dinner before quarantine restaurant closures. Menu is very good albeit limited. Service lagged but given restrictions understandable. Overall great dishes and cool music/ambience/decor.
Always a good time. Never disappointed with the food. Service was slow but they probably weren’t expecting it to be as busy as it was, so that’s understandable. Had a lovely time.
The food was amazing and we loved the atmosphere and the service as well.
It was amazing
Gorilla Whale is consistently fantastic. Food, ambiance, cleanliness, service- all top notch. One of our go-to restaurants.
Gorilla Whale is one of the few places to eat in Calgary that I go to time and time again. The food is just beyond delicious. I was there this weekend for the RNB Brunch and had the Cool Ranch Okonomiyaki and it was superb.
