Outstanding food. Beef Jerky appetizer was great. Pork chop was best I ever had. Deep fried Philadelphia Cheesecake was delicious. They had TV’s so I could watch baseball World Series. Would highly recommend Yakima Social Kitchen if ever at Calgary Airport.

Delicious drinks at the bar followed by equally delicious bison rib eye steak dinner. Exquisite service by Michael at the bar and Subra (sp?) at dinner.
And conveniently located at YYC.

The ambiance is very "airport"... open, bright, loud, and with lots of travellers as customers.

That said, the food is absolutely incredible. I'm still salivating over the bison prime rib and my wife's pork chop was amazing. The vegetables were cooked and seasoned perfectly.

Our server was friendly and knowledgable about the food and was attentive. I never needed to wait for more than a couple of seconds to get his attention.

Definitely recommend this one if you're wanting some very tasty food in the Calgary airport area!

Food was brutal. I had a chicken soup that had a couple of pieces of spaghetti in it and dry cold chicken breast, no salt or seasoning at all. My husband had a steak that was well done when he ordered medium, it was tough and tasteless. We’ve had better food on a plane.

My husband and I had a fabulous dinner and our server Anith was amazing. We had an early morning flight and chose to stay at the Marriott Airport. We needed dinner and chose Yakima. This was the BEST decision. We had delicious cocktails to start and I tried the smoked old fashioned - highly recommended. Then we had their house made beef jerky which was perfectly seasoned and very tasty. My main was the pork chop and my husband had the bison ribeye. We were both so pleased. Everything was flavourful and cooked to perfection. We ended with the sticky toffee pudding to share and it was a perfect ending. We WILL be back!

Great place to meet someone at the airport for a quick decent bite. Had the pulled elk and pork sandwich and it was delish. They were kind enough to give me half a salad and half fries with it, at no extra cost. That was greatly appreciated.

Save room for the Warm Toffee Pudding dessert!

This is really a great restaurant located in the Marriott hotel lobby at YYC...you'll be pleasantly surprised. :)

This is a great choice for those of us that live up north and don't have time to venture all the way down to 17th Avenue...

This is, without doubt, the best airport hotel restaurant that I have dined in, and I travel around the US and Europe extensively.

Food was pretty good, service was a little slow but we were a large group so that was probably a factor, not great but for the convenience of being at the airport and free valet parking well worth it.

It sure exceeded our expectations. The food was great. We ordered steaks and they were all done to perfection and the presentation was outstanding. My wife and I were entertaining our friends who were in Calgary just for a few hours. They were very impressed with the service we received.

The hostess was very kind, pleasant and professional. The Chef (Originally from Bombay India) who did our steaks was just outstanding. We will never forget the excellent service we experienced. We will visit again for sure.

The best in Calgary.

The bar is located in the public section of the International side of the terminal. Sat at the bar and enjoyed chatting with the bartender while he mixed my wife a cocktail. Parking is free and easy. Just drop your keys at the hotel lobby. We went there just for the restaurant even though we were not flying anywhere that day. Lots of open space to enjoy and relax.

My first time eating at Yakima was awesome! It’s a great spot to spend a layover with friends and family flying through YYC. The service was outstanding and food fresh, delicious and served hot! I’ll definitely go again!

I was quite excited about getting to Yakima after looking at their menu. And the food was indeed excellent. I was however a little disappointed by the setting. First it is quite noisy - which could be expected in a "Social Kitchen + Bar" I guess. But in addition, for a restaurant set in an airport, it would have been nice to have some impression of the airport - either through being able to see the tarmac, or otherwise. Overall a good dinner, but I would see an advantage in making this place a little quieter - it's always appreciated after a long flight

We were there for a very long time as we were waiting for people arriving on a very delayed flight. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and patient, when they finally arrived AFTER last call and still let us order some food for them.

Booked this on Open Table since it was close to Country Hills. I had no idea the restaurant was in the Marriott Hotel in the new airport at YYC.

Was very surprised 4 hour Valet parking FREE...that made my day.

So I know what you are thinking airport food is expensive and tasteless...you would be wrong.

The service was exemplary and the food was unconventional and full of flavour.

We will be back and not just before a flight.

Great experience.

This hidden Gem in the newly open Marriott Hotel is definitely worth a stop before flying off to you destination. A unique, fresh and tasty menu paired with a great selection of beer and craft cocktails. A casual atmosphere but not a casual venue for sure. You should check it out!
