    Overall this was a very disappointing experience. We had booked several months in advance for our wedding anniversary and when we checked in, they gave us well wishes (so they knew this with the booking). We were seated at a table in the dark back corner, and at this point I should have asked to be moved to a window seat, as several were empty- but I figured if they sat us near the back they must have been fully booked. However, much to our disappointment 4 window tables and several others (about 7 or 8) around us went unused for the entirety of our dining. I’m highly disappointed that they didn’t seat us at a window knowing it was for special occasion. It doesn’t make sense they would let so many window seats go unused. When it came time to order, the server was unhelpful and couldn’t offer any suggestions. The first steak my husband tried to order was sold out, so he had to re-choose and the server seemed impatient. When our meals did finally arrive, my husband was very disappointed as we weren’t informed that the steak didn’t come with any accompaniments (I realize this is standard at some steak houses- but the server should have told us). Literally not a single thing on the plate other than some cut up steak. Hmm. Overall, we will not be dining here again. Save your money as there as so many better restaurants in Calgary that treat their customers well.

    Delicious and creative food! Views (if you can get a table bear the window) only enhance the experience. Only downside is the price. Save your pennies to try out this amazing place!

    Dress code stated as “Dress Casual” but people wearing cutoffs and flip flops didn’t make it feel like a special dinner out. The food is well prepared and delicious, the wine list is amazing. Very noisy room, but we couldn’t hear the conversation beside us so that was a plus!

    So disappointing. Service was slow. Wine was ice cold (our selection was NOT from the Cold Reds section). 30 mins to order. 10-15 mins later we were asked to select a sauce for our main. 10-15 mins after that (55 mins after our reservation time) we were told our main was sold out and we had to reselect.

    Great food for Calgary! We have needed a decent restaurant for years. Skip the lamb or get some sauce on it as others suggest. The major tots were amazing, and the oysters and salads were excellent as well! Was super excited about baked Alaska but it was super super sweet with the meringue and weird jam-like substance in it (try something more authentic fruit and it would be a top dessert!). Service was excellent! Glad to see David the sommelier working there -- top class!! Very interesting that it won Canada's top new restaurant award (food in this country really needs a boost as I'm a bit surprised!) -- it was yummy and waaay better than average Calgary food and definitely a great place to eat!

    I had asked for a window as I had out of province guests that I wanted to have see the view. Although we did not get a window table we were close enough to experience the view so all was good. Our waiter was good but a bit forgetful with a drink order as I had to flag him down to remind him. Food a bit slow coming to our table but overall we enjoyed our lunch. I would recommend for special occasions as it is a bit pricey.

    I must say I was overall less than impressed. I’m a seasoned traveller worldwide. And I love all food and experiences. I waited almost 3 months for a reservation. The views are fabulous. The space beautiful. But underwhelming. Our service was extremely slow. Over 3 hours for a very small lunch consisting of hors d’oeuvres and salads! Minimal check in. Had to top up my own wine. Order was incorrect. Bill was incorrect. Prices - justifiable? Maybe. For the space I can understand but overall menu selection was lacking. It’s not worth the hype.

    Great views and great food! We were a larger group so we didn't get seated right by the windows but had a nice view from COP to the tower. Everything we had was delicious, standouts were the crispy hen egg, cucumber salad, and the London fog verrine.

    I heard nothing but good things and a lot of hype before coming here, I was not disappointed, in fact all the hype didn't do it justice. Best cocktail menu I've seen in the city and from start to finish some of the best quality food and service I've had at a restaurant in Calgary. If you've never been here, you MUST go. The only thing I took one star off of was for portion size and that was only for some of the menu options they are a bit small and they're so good I end up ordering more but my philosophy is go big or go home so it doesn't really bother me. It would never stop me from coming back.

    We got moved to a window table, yeah. All servers were incredible. Beet salads excellent, oysters excellent, rigatoni excellent, seafood excellent, desserts excellent, lamb…….. 2 of us ordered the lamb PINK, & BOTH came Brown (mine had a few tiny pink flecks). My friend sent hers back as hers had NO pink. As soon as I saw the dish, it really didn’t look appetizing, besides the browned lamb. The condiments (wrong word?) looked bland & tasted the same. I decided to eat mine anyways as I hadn’t eaten all day, but my friend sent hers back. I kept putting the mushy onions on the lamb to see if it’d bring out the flavor but no luck; with the radish made it worse. The flavors did NOT enhance or go with the lamb at all…all flavorless. THANK YOU to our server & the manager; we were comped the 2 lamb dinners AND 4 desserts which was greatly appreciated. THANKYOU. Aside from the lamb not as ordered…please ENHANCE the lamb dish somehow to bring out its flavor AND appearance. Not too appealing. This was our friends’ first visit and our third. We were very happy the first two times & because things were rectified, we WILL BE BACK. Thankyou for all the attention. Bonnie

    Amazing from top to bottom. Great views of the city and their hospitality was on point. They took notes of our anniversary and acknowledged this as we arrived. The menu, both food and beverage are extensive, creative, and progressive. It is definitely a menu set up to be shared.

    Food and service was not the best, but would recommend trying once just for the ambience and view. The dining atmosphere was perfect. We liked how there was someone stationed at the lobby to greet and guide us up to the restaurant. We also liked how we were seated at the place that we requested. Our table ordered 9 different menu items but only two came out outstanding, some were too salty, and the cod dish was just absolutely terrible. Our server was very observant and attentive throughout the night, but not once has smiled at us, and made it obvious half way through the service that he was not in a good mood. Furthermore, also never cared to strike up a conversation like they had with other tables. The front desk people were too busy chatting with one another instead of greeting guests right away, and even ignored us when leaving the restaurant, without even saying goodbye. The service would have been no problem at all if it was a standard practice for all guests, but unfortunately there was an obvious disparity in the service, when it came to our group and others (might’ve been because of classism or racism who knows).

    Dinner was excellent. We had the golden beet and caeser salads which were both very good, the lobster which was served in fashion which as easy to eat and delicious and had the baked Alaska which was quite good but a bit too large for two. No complaints though. The service was great, very friendly and attentive. I would certainly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.
