                                          Really cool place, love the atmosphere, and great service. Food was on the salty side, so I wish I had visited on non-work time so I could have enjoyed a beer!!

                                          Unfortunately, this restaurant has all of the makings of a good spot but it really misses the mark on the food. You read the menu and it sounds like you’re in for this great experience of delicious food, but it just really missed the mark and was not executed well at all. The servers are attentive, friendly and great, and the physical restaurant has a great vibe, but the food just doesn’t not deliver at all.

                                          Amazing atmosphere, excellent menu. The servers were kind and very attentive. The cocktails menu is well put together and curated! The only qualm I have with this AMAZING restaurant is that the menu and cocktail menu visually look like they were put together in 5 minutes, which takes away from the ambience of the restaurant itself. Otherwise, the food was delicious (try the salmon!) and the curated cocktails were also amazing.

                                          We started outside, there was no music or heaters, and the decor felt cheap and didn’t match the inside or intended quality of experience. Our first choice of drinks and food weren’t available. We waited a very long time for make drink and food orders. The food was good but not amazing.

                                          This is my 3rd trip to the Wednesday Room and this time the menu was super limiting. No vegetarian, fish or chicken large dish which made it hard to enjoy a shared dinner. Cocktails were ok and the service was attentive. I just hope the menu gets reviewed with some more variety’s

                                          Definitely enjoyed our meal. Service was excellent, food tasty and we loved the funky ambience. Our only disappointment was that we could only choose between a 5 Oz glass of wine or a bottle, both of which were pricey.

                                          This was my first time at The Wednesday Room and it did not disappoint! The cocktail were fabulous and were rivalled by the amazing sharing plates my girlfriends and I shared! Highly recommend and will be back!

                                          Always love the Wednesday room! It’s one of our favourite places to dine out in Calgary. Love that the menu changes from time to time giving us lots of opportunity to come back and try something new.

                                          So chic and beautiful setting. The mid century modern and 60’s style carpet makes you feel like you stepped back in time but in an upscale way. The concept of the hotel Bar from the shining makes it extra cool. The cocktails were all named after incredible directors and movies which I really enjoyed and the cocktails themselves were some of the best I’ve had in Calgary. Food is always amazing

                                          My partner and I had an amazing experience at The Wednesday Room. Everything from the lovely hosts, to the amazing food, our outstanding server Simone, and the amazing manager as well were all outstanding! We went for a very late anniversary dinner here Friday night, and got more than we expected from the service to the drinks, the food was literally jaw dropping amazing as well. Will definitely be back! As often as we can :)

                                          First time going to The Wednesday Room. We sat upstairs in the back space and it was so private and cozy. I know they have an additional space downstairs that I am curious to see. Having the cocktails based off movies and organized by directors is such fun. Very diverse flavours and profiles. We ordered some snacks to share and highly recommend the fingerling potatoes. So tasty and crispy. Overall a great experience, attentive service, cozy atmosphere and unique drinks. I recommend for any occasion. Definitely is a fun spot to stop at if you are moving/hopping around downtown.

                                          Great room, fabulous tasting cocktails but expensive, appetizers were yummy with a good selection, for the larger main food items there isn’t much of a selection and the food wasn’t very good.

                                          The ambience is definitely the the biggest draw - it is such a cool, retro room .. but the cocktails, food and service all stand up .. we'll be back.

                                          Sat at a table then asked to move to another table at the mistake of the hostess. Not sure what difference it made.

                                          From everything to being greeted warmly by the hostesses to our adept waitress, Savanah to the bartender, Adrien going out of his way to go get the spirit we requested, everything was excellent. In addition to really great service, we had great food (beef tartar with duck fat crackers-YUM). We thought our experience at the Wednesday Room was terrific.

                                          The menu is creative but mostly works. The sunflower seed 'risotto' doesn't really work. They told us on arrival that our table was only available for two hours.

                                          Our previous experience here was awesome so we decided to bring some family members. They were not disappointed! The food was fantastic from start to finish and the server made excellent recommendations, all of which were bang on (except the German chocolate cake, which was a bit lacking, but not enough to sully the experience by any means). The portion sizes were just right. The horchata sorbet was so good and a nice way to finish the evening. We were initially seated upstairs and it was quite noisy but were able to move downstairs to a bit more private area which was great. The ambiance downstairs is great. It’ll be awesome once they bring back some live music. We will definitely be back!

                                          Ambiance and service was great! Menu is very small and beef heavy but the food we ordered was rich and tasty. The draft beer was a little on the warm side- could have been colder. We enjoyed ourselves.
