We didn’t enjoy the food, we ordered tapas and entree. The staff was friendly and this would be a lovely place to grab a drink and listen to live music but I don’t recommend as food spot sadly.

I hope they get a revived menu with some new flavours as it would be a great place with better food

Perfect Christmas dinner or lunch spot! Grilled Salmon and Lemon herb Risoto was outstanding!!
Piano playing was a great add to the entire night, very classy!

The service was terrible. There was only one other table besides us in the restaurant and it took three hours for us to finish our meal… Ordered wine that never came and the Server was totally unattentive and did not care about serving us at all.
I rarely write a review but couldn’t wait to write this one because I’m still upset about the decision to visit this establishment. I would never recommend the headquarters restaurant and in fact have already told a few friends of mine how disappointed we all were.

The place was empty, the food wasn’t bad but it also wasn’t good, there’s nothing unique or special about it. It was my husband’s birthday and I included that information in my reservation but there was no mention of it when we arrived. Overall I just felt very underwhelmed with my whole experience and do not plan on coming back. Our server was nice!

Tapas and dinner were fabulous, but we were not impressed with the dessert. We had one bite and returned it, but we were shocked when we were still charged for it. Upon request, it was then removed from our bill. Overall, a nice place and a welcome addition to the area. We’d go again for the Tapas.

We love the “Downtown Feel” how new and nice it is! Service is very excellent, everyone is super nice and happy. Drinks are good and well priced. Live music is a great idea, we love it! The taste of the food is very good over all.

We have been there a total of three times, all three my husband has left hungry and we have had to stop on the way home to buy something. Twice we got a pizza at Bow Tie Pizza, wow it’s amazing! I was ok but my husband was not full. Why did we go back? We just really thought it was what he had ordered but not 3 times! My son in law also left hungry on the ocasión that he came with us. Maybe bread at the table would be good? I think that would do it.
Possibly the intention is to have people order tapas before dinner and we did order the empanadas, there were 4 but super tiny :(
We’re not dessert people either.

Did not appreciate the tour groups walking through the restaurant as we were eating perhaps we should have been seated more privately; their conversations made it difficult to hear our own.
The food presentations were pretty but the food was very plain and we had 5 different dishes and everyone thought the same thing.
Food wasn’t very hot more room temperature.

Very good overall. The only thing that needs improvement is the wine by the glass menu which is one of the worst I’ve seen at any restaurant in Calgary.

Service was incredibly slow. A business lunch took 2.5 hours. It is also difficult to find (as it is in the middle of a construction zone) and parking is not well marked. The food was average. It may be worth trying again when they have had some time to work out the kinks.

It took approximately 25 minutes to get our wine. About 40 minutes to get our tapas and then another 25 minutes to get our entrees. We would have left before dessert but we were offered dessert on the house. The food tasted great. The roasted cauliflower was underwhelming. The empanadas were delicious. The pan fried salmon was nothing special at all. The lemon risotto needed something. And there was no veg, just a small garnish of microgreens, which we liked, but it was essentially just a garnish. It needed more for $27.00. The Apple strudel was the highlight. The brownie was nothing to write home about. Overall, the service was accepted for a restaurant that opened a day or two ago. But after finding out HQ has been open for 6 weeks we were very disappointed. Don’t lose the lovely pianist, she was the only reason we didn’t lose our minds waiting for our meal. This place has a long way to go and for that reason we aren’t in a hurry to come back.

They don't seem to have quite figured things out yet. Restaurant was full but only 1 server on so things were very slow.

Food is alright. They seem to be trying too hard. A dish that comes with 'roasted carrots' meant 2 burnt slices of carrots.

Drinks/wine is expensive.

Lounge singer was catering mostly to 1 family's children who were running around like it was a park.

We've been here 3 times since it opened. The food is amazing, the ambience romantic and the entertainment is wonderful. Enjoying a piano and lounge singer while savoring Chef Jeremy's creations is a unique adult evening out. Of course we'll be back 😊

We had a great meal here, and are so happy there are some better choices in dining for our community! The service was very attentive and friendly, and the speed was good. We went to have a relaxed dinner on Thanksgiving and really enjoyed the table d'hote menu. It had three choices, one good for gluten free and vegetarians, and the turkey based choice was creative yet appealed to traditional tastes as well.

The decor is trendy and relaxing and I'm sure that it would appeal to a wide range of diners.

Our only complaint was the lighting over the tables for two, as we both felt it was too bright, and one diner is facing a blank wall. Perhaps some change to the seating, or mirrors installed? The Manager did mention that the lighting was going to be altered, and we approved of Headquarters desire to be responsive to their diners.

The music was great, really enjoyed the piano selections, and the canned music was appreciated by both of us

All in all, a great addition to SE dining choices and we're looking forward to Chef Jeremy's menu developments!

I think it may have been because it was so new but the service was extremely slow. There were only 2 tables. There was not much for options for the kids. Food was good but very slow. Not sure we will be back but we have it a go. Sorry :(
