As usual, it was a great experience! I love this restaurant. But for the first time, I had a complaint about the food. I ordered the veal and lobster. It was excellent in every way except one: the thin, hard, overcooked piece of veal might as well have been a slab of...I don’t know, cardboard?
Unfortunately, I was talking so much I didn’t start eating right away, and then I gave some of it to my brother, and realy, by the time Lorne, our waiter, asked how it was, I had eaten most of the pasta - delicious, pushing the veal to the side. Lorna asked if I would like to try something else, but by then everybody was finished eating, and so I said no. But no one really did anything about it, like perhaps talk to me about it, or take it off the bill, or offer a free dessert - that kind of thing.

This remains my favorite restaurant in the neighborhood, and thank goodness it has so far survived the difficulties suffered by so many other restaurants. Please give them the support they deserve. I think they really tried hard when the restaurant seating area was closed, by offering take out service, and grab & go meals.
My last visit, I was disappointed to find my favorite dish that I order every time, to be removed from the menu. Please bring back Fiorentina - I did find a dish similar, but nothing tops my fave ---

I’ve been here several times but on this day we experienced really bad service. It took us over ten minutes to order our drinks and another ten to order our food. I understand that the system may be down but that doesn’t mean that you completely ignore your guest. We wanted dessert but again it took as over ten minutes to even get the dessert menu, by the time the server came over we decided to just skip it and take our business somewhere else after that we had to wait another ten minutes for our bill. Will likely not come back for a while

Party of two for a birthday. Really friendly service, nice selection of food on the menu. My partner liked his Carbonara, but I have to say my Gnocchi was just OK (garlic-y which was cool, otherwise it was bland). The booths were kinda worn (missing button covers, so the exposed silver really stood out) and we had a large advert sign dividing our booth in half (fair, it's COVID time, but still). Maybe ask for a table (not a booth) and you will have a less shabby experience.

Every time we are in Calgary we eat at Sauce at least once. The food and service is great. The market is great idea also. The set up to deal with Covid works and we were very comfortable dining at Sauce. We always recommend the restaurant.

Sauce has been my favorite restaurant in this area since they opened. Food is always excellent, served hot and if you are gluten free, this is not a problem for Sauce!! Thrilled to have them re open, and because of social distance requirements, was nice and quiet for dining with tables further apart than usual. Highly recommend Sauce for lunch or dinner.

I always enjoy my Sauce Italian Kitchen experience. The only downside to this visit was LARGE, VERY noisy group of women that felt it was OK to take over the restaurant, as if it was a private home. It was extremely difficult to carry on any kind of conversation. Fortunately, they were only there about an hour, all left, and we were able to resume our otherwise very pleasant dining experience.
I don't know how the restaurant could have handled this better --- I know business is important, but perhaps reserving for such a large group is not appropriate --- as it definitely interferes with the rest of the clientele.

The presentation was well done. My mom had the lasagne and said it was just okay. My husband had the mushroom pasta and the sauce was a bit dry. I had the Bolognese with gluten free pasta. It could have had more meat in it. Overall the lunch was okay, but not amazing.

We had a late (745pm) reservation. Got there early thinking we’d either get a table early or have a drink at the bar. We were seated at the bar but it took 15 minutes to get a drink. We were finally at our table at 815... Service was good after that. Food was good. Wine expensive. Pretty noisy.

Went there with my husband to celebrate my birthday. Great ambience. Very trendy and busy (on a Saturday at 7pm). We had reso’s so didn’t have the wait. We ordered mussels & beef carpaccio to start. Both very tasty! The mussels has a peppery note at the end but not too strong. We both had pasta dishes which weren’t very large but were enough to fill us up, with some room for dessert. The appetizers and entrees came quite quick! We were done the meal in just over an hour. For dessert we had the tiramisu and it was amazing! Very unique. It is a deconstructed tiramisu where they pour the espresso on it at the table. And I had ordered a decaf coffee so the waiter was attentive enough to bring decaf espresso! It was unique and made to order (not made the night before & sat in a fridge), and had all the authentic flavours of a tiramisu. And to top it off they gave me a free cannoli for my Birthday. I highly recommend that dessert...and Sauce!!

Kitchen staff were operating some grinding equipment which was very high pitched and loud. Should not have been happening during lunch hours.

Had chicken artichoke penne many times. First time the chicken was tough. My husband had the gnocchi. He has salt on everything and even found the gnocchi too salty. Hope it was just a bad day as we love Sauce.

We always enjoy coming here. The servers are always wonderful. The food is so tasty and just the right amount. I asked our server to suggest a wine pairing with the short rib dish. It was a great choice. We've come here after work for drinks and appetizers.

We went to Sauce to celebrate a birthday. Everything was amazing, food and service were fantastic. We also used the bakery section of the market after dinner and got coffee to go. I would definitely recommend Sauce.
