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.

My food was cold. The chicken was dry and there was no juice on anything. The potatoes were very dry and overcooked. I had to ask for gravy to put on my meal. It took a very long time to get our meal.

The food was very mediocre. I had carbonara pasta yesterday and it was totally overcooked , salty. Everything looked like a bowl of mashed potatoes

Love the guild we always have an amazing experience there whenever we go, so sad though that the escargot left the menu I crave only the one from the guild, but it keeps leaving the menu... I am not sure if it’s seasonal but I wish it’s there all the time!!!

After having been here many times for lunch, tonight was a disappointing experience. Despite being very quiet (about 6 tables) service wasn’t very attentive. Thanks to the open kitchen concept it was clear the kitchen wasn’t busy at all, yet it took quite some time for our appetizer to arrive. It looked like it was just standing on a counter. By the time it was being served, it came together with the main dishes and we were no longer interested in it (it got removed from the bill). My wife’s lamb burger with fries was ok but not very warm, it must have been standing somewhere waiting to be served. My “porky” pizza was good though a thinner crust would have made it better. The kitchen chef blowing his nose and not washing his hands before returning to the kitchen was a big no-no. Don’t think I’ll be back here.

The Guild exceeded our expectations and more. The manager Katie provided us with the most outstanding service we’ve ever received, including our server. Our anniversary was acknowledged and treated with the utmost respect and we felt like royalty. The food was spectacular and exactly what we were looking for. From the moment we walked in the door, until we left we felt right at home and the atmosphere was extraordinary. I highly recommended The Guild to everyone.

Our manhattans and devilled eggs were great to start and Main dishes were excellent. The beets we ordered with the main dishes were very good. The caeser salad we also ordered was very dry; not much flavour to the point that I thought at first the dressing was forgotten altogether. It was extremely loud in the restaurant and we weren't even sure our waitress could hear what we were saying; we were ready to order and she nearly walked away as we were talking as she couldn't hear us (or she wasn't paying attention.) We were also on the lower part of the restaurant - a note would be for the bussers/wait staff: if you're cleaning the upper tables please watch where/how you spray the cleaner - we got hit with the bleach or windex or whatever it was while you were cleaning the table above us (thank goodness our food wasn't on our tables yet.)
We've been to The Guild before and our first experience was much more positive than this second visit. I would try again but I'm not in as much in a rush to come back.

From the welcome to the end, excellent cordial amicable and fast service. Pablo, our server was great, attentive, patient and accommodating.
The food is really good, the octopus was done just right !! Octopus is tricky as it can become too chewy or to slimy if over/undercooked , well , not at the guild, I am super happy with the way such dish was done. The sides of the mushrooms and the beets were flavorful and great sized.
Happily will return

It was my mom’s birthday and I booked a reservation at The Guild for lunch. Our server seemed to be more interested in chatting with her coworkers. It took us about 20 minutes until we got our order. My mom ordered a Caesar and it came out too spicy. They brought another one but it was still too spicy, so she ordered a coffee. It took about 10 minutes to get and then the server forgot cream, which took another 10 minutes and she forgot a spoon too, which she grabbed after. The food was nice and tasty, which wasn’t the problem, it was the lack of service. Whenever I was looking around trying to get our servers attention, she was chatting and none of the other servers came to help out. I was really disappointed as I had come before after work for appies and the service was great. I am definitely turned off from returning after this experience.

Always love coming here for a pre-event warm up. The food is outstanding and the service top notch! Had the beet salad, fried mac and cheese, ribs, and deviled eggs for a quick bite this time and they were all so delish! Our server was attentive but not over bearing and super sweet! The dining room is decorated and styled in a super classy way.. which means you can bring your buds or gals our for a night out or enjoy a stylish business event as well. Keep it up guys!

Food was good but not plentiful so don’t go too hungry! Pricey for what you get , focus was more on presentation which was beautiful. Would recommend for an experience but not a regular choice for us. Service was good but then it wasn’t busy either.

Not great for a business lunch as the music is over the top loud and we were told it isn’t possible to turn it quieter. Great for cocktails after work more likely.

Brought our family from the UK. Unfortunately there were a lot of issues. They didn't have half the cuts on their menu. People who ordered the same cuts of meat had their orders mixed up. People who had larger cuts had their meat overcooked and were left hungry. People who ordered smaller cuts had huge steaks that were undercooked. We pointed this out to the waiter but they did nothing. Ordered two different bottles of wine, without being prompted, the waiter filled glasses mixing the wines. Pointed that out as well and was basically ignored. Wound up spending almost a grand on a dinner nobody was satisfied with. It was a Thursday night with few people in the restaurant. Wouldn't rank them even close to the best steakhouses in Calgary. We won't be going back.

Although my main dish was great (beef short ribs) my partners main (rigatoni) was bland and forgettable. Service was slow and absent. Another guests meal arrived stone cold. Mostly misses.

The server was not very friendly and did not make us feel welcome. He did not check up on us and when he was he was also talking to other staff at the same time. The food was pretty good but the service really hindered the experience and I will not be recommending or returning to this establishment.

I have been to he Guild many times for after work drinks. Enjoying the Guild's offering for Summerfeast was delicious and I would definitely return for dinner for a special occasion. I thought even the service was delivered with a bit more promptness and attention. Generally the service for after work drinks is good, but sometimes it's hot and miss.
