Beef was tough,chicken was dry,pizza was not the one ordered....only one person who ordered salmon enjoyed their meal.
The waiter even brough the wrong beer!
We recommended it for our friends and felt embarrasssed at the poor quality...especially after having been their many times before at lunch.

Very good dishes, excellent service (Lana and young Asian lady) very accommodating.
Nice atmosphere (TVs should be outlawed in fine restaurants, but not so obtrusive here as in other restaurants)

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!

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.

Loved the food. Service was a little slow as it was a busy night, but our waiter comp’d me and my date a drink and was genuinely sorry for not being able to get food out faster. 100% would recommend to others

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
