The Guild exemplifies a new and exciting take on the finest traditions of butchery, cookery and bar-keeping. The name is inspired by guild halls from the past, which served as a meeting places and secret societies for artists and merchants. Honouring local beef, game and fowl, and utilizing traditional cooking techniques over wood and coal, The Guild chefs are preparing a fitting homage to proud Canadian carnivores.

    It was a great night out. Service was excellent. Food overall was very good. Loved the seafood risotto and brussel sprouts. However, Tomahawk steak was way to rare on inside and too chard on the outside.

    Took my Dad to dinner before the flames game. Our server was lovely, very sweet and gave us just the right amount of attention without being overbearing. The calamari came out within minutes of ordering it and the seafood risotto was incredibly flavourful. Wonderful meal. Thank you to the team at the Guild for another lovely evening.

    We had a one night stopover in Calgary, after a Rocky Mountaineer trip. We chose this restaurant using opentable reviews…. And happy with our choice. Nice atmosphere, attentive service and very tasty food. No TVs, which we liked…. We dropped one star as the tables are close and the place gets packed. Getting to/from your table takes maneuvering, which in a COVID environment isn’t great.

    The Stella Artois draft was off. The risotto I order was undercooked and greasy and the mushrooms were also undercooked. The service was great, however for the amount you are paying I would expect way better food and drink quality. We will not be coming back here.

    Our first visit was to celebrate a birthday. The food was excellent, but equally important was the wonderful service we received on this special occasion. From our first questions regarding a reservation, to serving us on our actual visit, Ayan went above and beyond. Our server, Icy, was also wonderful. Highly recommend The Guild!

    Overall my first experience at The Guild was great. They are clearly a team of professionals and its obvious that their level of experience in this business is reflected in the service, food and ambiance. I had a reservation for 5 originally and I was accommodated with and extra 6 people without any issues. The food was delicious and perfectly portioned. I had the Jerk chicken, others next to me had the rigatoni and I highly recommend the Devilled eggs as a starter. The deserts were very imaginative, beautifully presented and very tasty. I like the ambiance that it was not too loud to have easy conversation with people around the table. It was busy and the service was smooth and slightly slow, but for a busy Friday night this is normal. I would recommend The Guild to anyone who is looking for a place that boasts “solid quality with a touch of elegance and style from the past”. Thank you for hosting my party.

    Great looking place, nice service, though the kitchen is a little slow. After going two nights in a row I was a little disappointed that some of the things we ordered again were prepared differently and not as good as the night before. Specifically the poutine and the Caesar. I would rethink the carrot cake, but everything else was lovely.

    The food was very good, with the exception of the Brussels sprouts, which were roasted beautifully but were in a syrup and crumble mixture that made them a bit too syrupy sweet. My steak was perfect and the calamari is very good. The ambience is also very good. I would return but skip the Brussels sprouts.

    nice atmosphere, charismatic service, with nice food. unfortunately we had a 1.5 hour wait for our food due to an intense rush that hit the kitchen. the staff was apologetic and check in with updates often. once food was delivered we did not see our server for quiet a while.
