    I had a great time, but disappointed that in the reservation I put birthday as a special occasion and also requested a secret birthday dessert, but not only did nothing special happen, our waitress didn’t even know we were celebrating a birthday.

    Service was slow even though restaurant was not busy. Took nearly 45 minutes before we got our food. I watched our food sit under the heating lamp for quite some time before the server finally brought it over. So the food was no longer hot by the time we got it. Server was nice but no attention to detail, had to ask her for everything when it probably should have been on the table already or she asked us if we needed it. I had to flag her down otherwise we never saw her.

    Servers were all very prompt and friendly however the food did not impress what so ever . I got the Short Rib Pappardelle , very basic , bland not much going on did not finish dish . My husband got the star belly burger which was also underwhelming. The real star was fries .. which is not what I had hoped . We told the server our experience and she agreed that the pasta was not good and would tell her manger however nothing came of it . Will most likely not return.

    The server was excellent! Very attentive and pleasant. However our entrees took forever to arrive. The restaurant wasn’t very busy. Starbelly is a very noisy restaurant making having a conversation very difficult.

    The tuna tartare needed more flavour, additional ponzu sauce or something to punch it up would've been great. The glazed pork would've been better had the spice been added to the glaze rather than the puree. The beef tartare was pretty good with some nice flavour. The cajun steak had good flavour/seasoning but was drier than expected for a medium steak. The beef short rib was quite nice and the mushroom risotto it sat on was flavourful and had just enough cheese in it. The donut was giant and stuffed my wife beyond the gills after the rest of the food, though it was nothing special. The panna cotta didn't have much vanilla flavour, but it was still nice. I quite liked the layout and decor of the restaurant. It was very open and decently bright. It was nice, without seeming pretentious or stuffy. Felt like a nice place to relax and talk.

    This experience was great. With quality in every step of making the meals and drinks, there's no room for complaining. Very impressive for a resturant so far away from the concentrated population of calgary.

    The food was horrible. The steak was so rare and full of fat it couldn’t be eaten. The salads were wilted. The shrimp on the shrimp salad was not cooked throughly. The gnocchi obviously was prepared well before the other meals and sat somewhere. It was “lifeless” when it arrived. Of the five meals we ordered, three arrived and we had to wait approx 5 min for the last two. They should close the Reaturant for a few weeks and fully train everyone and then reopen so they can come close to hitting the standard I’m sure they aspire to.

    Table was so big we had to arrange our seating ourselves so we could talk. Warm potato salad was terrible. Just a bunch of small potatoes cut in half with some kind of mayo sauce on it. Very bland, no spice..awful. The black cod was watery, skin wasnt crisp, and no saffron taste at all (which was listed on menu) Disappointed this visit.

    The “patio” we got put on was a table beside the parking lot. It honestly sucked. The tuna bowl my wife got was a giant pile of sticky rice with a small amount of tuna and veggies on top. The grilled chicken burger and truffle fries were amazing, which is why I gave three stars. But really, it’s not that challenging to make a good burger and fries. Expected more.

    Not happy with the current menu . There are barely any options for vegetarians. Before this time I have been to restaurants Atleast 3 times and I had awesome time and good vegetarian dishes but this time was not happy. Need to include more vegetarian and vegan dishes.

    We met with family for a nice dinner. The food was tasty and well presented, drinks were cold, service was very good. The only thing I find is that the noise level is very high due to the hard surfaces everywhere, some acoustical panels and treatments would help resolve this.

    Was just ok…nothing special. Restaurant is pretty and clean. The cocktails were boring and lacked flavour. Steak dinner was boring and under seasoned.. my daughter had the salmon and that was good but the warm potatoes salad that came with it was crap. Like something you would get at a low end deli. The tuna tartare was actually really delicious and was the only memorable part of the meal. I feel like this restaurant wants to give the feel of fine dinning without the high cost. If your expectations are fine dinning you will be disappointed here.

    We had a great time! Our server was FANTASTIC!!! Hands down the best service we’ve received in a long time. Our meals were good too. Unfortunately my kids left hungry (kid’s meals portions were more suitable to 6 and under) but they enjoyed them. All in all, great experience!
