Been here a few times with friends and it has always been a treat. We love the rotating seasonal menu items. They are fresh and delicious and have a wide variety to appeal to everyone! Easter brunch was well themed and great too. They even have complimentary coat check.
We went for breakfast buffet. The food was not fresh.
We have been to the Yellow Door twice now and by far my favorite place. It is perfect from the time you walk in to when you leave. The service is exceptional and the food is the most amazing food I have ever had. The desserts...... don't leave without having some!! We will be back many, many times!!!
Great atmosphere, great service and very tasty food. We had the cheese fondu, which was very good but nothing overly original but the Cobb salad and the perogies were fantastic! The only complaint was that we went there because we saw on the online menu that they had a French desert called l'île flottante. My French friend was so excited because she loves them in France but they removed it from their menu. Overall it was a great meal.
My wife and I had our anniversary dinner at Yellow Door - when making our reservation, I'd indicated that it was our anniversary and they went all out. Daniel, our server, was subtle but helpful. Started with Cheese Fondue, a meal in itself. I had the rib eye - possibly one of the best cuts I'd had in about 5 years; my wife had the Chicken w Mushroom - also outstanding. They also served a complimentary dessert (chocolate truffle lollipops) along with some ice wine (tasty!) for our anniversary. Highly recommend for a romantic night out!
Yellow Door Bistro is fast becoming one of my favourite restaurants in Calgary. I've been there 4 times and the food has always been exceptional. The sous-vide steak is a must-have experience if you love steak. It's a place that bakes all it's own breads, cures their own meat and the flavours in the entrees are a foodie's delight. They have a great weekend brunch, not the usually big buffet with so many choices you don't know where to start but a selection of what most people would want for a brunch on a sunday, there have been the odd item I didn't care for but so far their batting average for me has been stellar. Service is efficient and discreet, they check up on you often enough not to be disruptive and are always there when you need them.
Two friends and I went to The Yellow Door for a brunch last sunday and honestly it was such a disappointment! There is 3 options for brunch: buffet, continental and a la carte. I took a look at the buffet and the options were not very attractive, so I decided to go for the continental option which was pretty much, pastries, some cheese and oatmeal and my friends ordered 2 eggs benedict. One of the egg benedict was very cold and the eggs were not poached the way she ordered (medium). After complaining with the waitress another one was brought and it seemed to be ok. Coffee was served cold twice! Even the waitress got embarrassed when she realized the coffee was totally cold!
The buffet lacks variety.. The only thing I really like about the this place was the ambiance.. It's very modern and I like the style.
Overall.. Bad experience. I was expecting way more from such a place like the Yellow Door. I do not recommend this place for brunch.
I've always wanted to try this place, and it was completely worth the wait! My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the brunch buffet (the fluffy scrambled eggs, Dutch cake, and miniature sandwiches were big hits), and loved the great service and beautiful decor! We will be back for sure!
The food was very well done with attention to detail that was unexpected. Will be back for sure to try everything else on the menu.
