    My wife and I visited this Palliser neighbourhood French bistro for the first time. We became aware of it because of its connection to Trullo Trattoria in Oakridge. Our experiences at Purlieu were 5/5 in all categories. The service, food and ambiance were exactly what we were looking for. We each enjoyed the tastes, textures and aroma from what we ordered (escargot, duck and an interesting spin on beef stroganoff) immensely. If anyone is looking for a first class restaurant, off the beaten track in a nice neighbourhood, then head to Purlieu. You won't be disappointed.

    Dining at Purlieu is always a lovely experience. The food and service are impeccable. I highly recommend this restaurant. The only drawback is the restaurant is quite small so book in advance to avoid disappointment !

    Beautiful place, very Parisian-French setting. To be served in French is the cherry on the cake.

    We had a lovely birthday dinner for my partner. She had been to France last year and wanted to experience French cuisine, ambiance and service here in Calgary. She loved Purlieu and said it came very close to being in a French restaurant in France. We highly recommend it.

    From the moment you enter, your French experience begins. We started with cocktails and French 75s, some of my best in Calgary. The Muscovy Duck breast was impressive; the rendering and crispy skin were perfect. Every bite was savoured with a delightful parsnip purée & butternut squash, and spring pea hash. Paired with red wine selected by our server, this meal was memorable. We finished off with dark chocolate terrine, which was rich but not overwhelming. With a glass of port to complete the night, we were both impressed. It's an unexpected location, but somewhere you will return!

    We went based on the reviews and were not disappointed! The exterior is a bit unassuming but inside is beautiful and the food and service were excellent! Will definitely be back. A hidden gem.
