Love this restaurant. Service can sometimes be slow in the beginning but gets better. Food is good and as I follow a gluten free diet it’s nice to have options. It’s usually pretty busy so reservations are a must. Great for small groups or even a girlfriend gettogether!
Food was very good and the service was attentive
We have started going to Sauce regularly with friends as they are always so accommodating and warm when we come in with our family and kids. The food has been excellent and service is great. Wonderful to have such a great option within walking distance.
This is a restaurant that I have been to many times and will continue to return to with friends. However, due to the euphemistically termed ‘energetic’ environment I am always careful to reserve specific tables where my friends and I can comfortably hear our own conversation.
We were a group of 6 friends on a Saturday evening. The food was very good, The server did his best but the food was very slow arriving.
Service was extremely slow and not attentive. Was not offered another drink after we finished ours. Food was subpar tonight. Have been there many times but tonight it was off.
Excellent lunchtime menu and prices. Glad we booked for 11:30 am, anything later and it is too noisy.
I had the lobster gnocchi, which was full of onions, and the menu said nothing onions.
The Bruschetta was very creative and Delicious. The creation of four was well presented.
The Carbonnera was excellent, withe right amount of time between courses.
The wine tastings were well presented and paired well with the carbonerra. Service was excellent. The table could have been a little more separated from the next table.
First time there. Delicious. Will be back!
Went on Pasta Night. Very busy so quite loud. Modern decor in dark colors. Service was attentive. Both enjoyed our chicken parmigiana. Friend was pleased that she didn't get charged extra for her gluten free, corn pasta substitution. Kitchen was very accommodating as easily substituted out the fried chicken with unbreaded chicken breast for her. She loved that she had GF desserts options. Finished the meal with delicious cannoli from the market side.
This restaurant has EXCELLENT service, particularly the waiter/waitresses, this impressed me the most, the 2nd favorite thing about it is the décor. The dining area is beautiful and flows so perfectly due to the color accents of red and black/ The ladies bathroom is STUNNING!
Sauce is always excellent. Lively and a happy place. The service is the best.
Great neighbourhood market bistro. Perfect setting for lunch with good friends. Casual and unhurried service with well priced menu items, some of which are great for sharing.
Great service, and great ambiance in that space. Job well done. Thank you.
We had a delicious lunch on Sunday. Food was very tasty. We had plenty of time to sit and chat while eating lunch. Not rushed at all. Also enjoyed shopping in the market afterwards.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Sauce. Food was very good and Holly was very attentive. We have been to Sauce quite a number of times and always are pleased with the restaurant.
Pleasantly surprised by the menu selections. Ambience and “vibe” are enjoyable. It’s a nice little hidden gem.
First time visiting Sauce. Loved it! Can’t wait to go back...
Great place, not amazing but definitely worth the price and a visit.
Very good quality food, great service, lots of family.
Calgary has many outstanding Italian eateries. I have visited Sauce three times. I always found the prices a tad high, particularly the wine by the glass. This visit confirmed for me that I will take advantage of other Italian spots. That said, a bit of review should be offered.
I had a 2 oz martini ($9) which was chilled nicely but my taste buds suggested that it was a little watery. My friend and I enjoyed the antipasto special which was the highlight of the meal as it was a nice sampling of food ($16). I opted for the chicken pasta dish ($24). The sauce was the winner here as the chicken appeared as almost an after thought. It was only half a breast (or a very small chicken) and it was dry with no noticeable seasoning or sauce (odd given the place’s name). I accompanied the dish with a glass of 9 oz wine which was pleasant. (A $17 glass to me should be either outstanding or served at the Rimrock, or both!).
The room itself is of the typical noisy variety with lots of open flat spaces that reflect the noise making personal conversation a challenge as the room fills.
Sauce has a good location by the LRT station and parking is available through the back alley.
Always find the staff so great & attentive. Great ambience & great to share a bottle of half price wine on a Wednesday! :)
We celebrated my wife’s birthday and our mouths fell in love with the food. Got a great bottle of wine 1/2 price on Wednesday evening 🍷👍 From applies to main course and dessert, all was delightful 😄😄
Great lunch and very affordable! Aphrodite was lovely.
Our experience was fantastic from start to finish. Food was good, service was great and it didn’t break the bank. We’ll definitely be back for more
The food is really quite good here. The atmosphere is a bit loud with not many (if any) quiet areas and is best suited for group dining.
Delicious food, fantastic service, friendly staff, comfortable setting - fab experience overall!!
Date with my 12 year old son who insisted on the lobster gnocchi which we shared . Delicious! And he loved it!
Great service as well.
One of our favourite places!
This was my first time for lunch and I was pleased it was as good as my previous dinner experience. The service was excellent and just the right amount of attentive. We both chose soup and sandwich. The tomatoe basil soup was well balanced and enjoyable. The sandwiches, thankfully, were not gargantuan....slightly more than you may need for lunch but not so small that you didn't think you were getting good value for the price....which it was. The coffee was excellent and served in generous mugs.
Celebrated my husbands birthday for the 3rd year in a row here - he LOVES the spaghetti and meat balls. This year it was a Monday, so $12 pasta was a bonus. So happy to have Sauce in the neighborhood and see it doing so well. We regularly bring friends.
Great pasta dishes on pasta night. Great value at only $12/dish as well.
Another great evening at Sauce. Had the gnocchi poutine and it was amazing. Followed that up with clams linguini Diablo and tiramisu. Amazing food as always. Keep up the good work.
We enjoyed our meal with friends. Unfortunately the noise level was such that we couldn't be heard across our table for four
a nice mix of meat and pasta dishes, comfortable atmosphere.
I do enjoy this place- food prices are very resonable, service is always good and it's bright and cheery
My husband and I had higher expectations then what was delivered.
1st of all the calamari was rubbery and tasteless. A few calamari rings placed inside a baked green pepper. Green pepper was good.
2nd, my husband ordered the Lobster Gnocchi. $28.00 for canned lobster.
3rd, the salmon & pearl gnocchi was tasty, again very expensive $28.00 for what was presented. I am not a very big eater.
The wine was OK, 9 oz $15.00, for house red, the going rate for an average wine.
There a lot of great restaurants in Calgary, I wouldn’t classify the Sauce as one.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Sauce! Everything we tried was delicious!
