In Calgary, Alberta Wurst is a German-inspired beer hall and restaurant. Its fun, vibrant atmosphere and full bar with plenty of German beers on draught are complemented by a kitchen that uses only fresh ingredients in all its dishes. Wurst serves a range of appetizers, soups and salads and mains and on the weekend there is live music.
Dinner at Wurst can start with appetizers big or small. Consider a Bavarian pretzel with mustards, a wurst flatbread or selections from the oyster bar. Larger dishes include burgers, a grilled chicken sandwich or the creative schnitzel BLT and mains like schwein shaxen.
It was quite expensive for what you received. The table we were seated at was less than ideal as my seat contacted the seat of the table that was perpendicular to ours. The sauerkraut was very salty, but the snitchel was excellent. The beer was excellent as well. I think if we were to go back,we would try the hall downstairs for dinner and drinks.
First visit to this restaurant and it was lovely-will go back again
Great German restaurant and bar for a date.
great place food was excellent - highly recommend this restaurant
Celebrated Valentines. All three dishes that we ordered were great, and as described. The waitress was knowledgable and friendly. Prices were reasonable considering the food we enjoyed.
A good eating place here in Calgary. We had the duck and it was very good. That dish alone is worth returning for. We also had onion rings which were huge, although these were far too greasy for our liking. A couple of downers...(1) Parking is really non-existent and (2) the top restaurant does not have pig hocks when the bottom (bar) area does. They will not even consider even allowing you to order this which is borderline ridiculous.
The service was slow but friendly. All-in-all it was a good experience. If they could sort out their inability to serve what customers want, then they would be a very good place to go. As it is, they are still good and worth visiting.
Great experience,awesome food and good service.
If you enjoy great food and awesome service, this place is for you. We went a day before Valentine's Day and started with the meat and cheese platter (awesome), then for the main meal we ordered the Pork Schnitzel (out of this world)and the bratwurst (cooked to perfection!). Felt that the wine was a bit overpriced for what you are getting, but we managed to order two bottles throughout the evening, and thouroughly enjoyed it. Service was exceptional and we did dine on the main level. Afterwards, we went downstairs for a beer and then attempted to waddle back up the stairs to go home. This is a keeper in my book!!
Dave and I have been to Wurst before and couldn't wait to go again so 4 of us went for a friend's birthday. We ordered the calamari and the fondu to start and the calamari was so fishy tasting we couldn't finish it. When the server asked how our appies were, I mentioned they were fishy but she didn't say anything and our evening moved on. The dinners weren't that great. My prawns were so dry and the rest was pretty average. it's not often we complain about resturants but there was nothing great about Wurst this time around. We do love the look and feel of the restaurant though. It is a nice setting.
Fondue was separated when it came and the server abondoned us for most of the night so AWOL when we wanted to tell him. Taste of everything was good and that is why it was. 3star rating but service lacking. I know we were not drinking and also a group of two rather than the 6, 8 or 20 in the area but still, our money is the same as every other table. We might return but there are other restaurants I want to try first.
