Great spot after a visit to the Park. We had the roast beef special at $30.00, excellent roast beef, excellent mashed potatoes, vegetables cooked just right!

The food is very good, ambience is too bright. Our service was probably the poorest we 4 have ever had, although waitress was friendly, she was clueless. A tutorial on how to serve people would be helpful.

Great food with good portion size, complimentary bread basket, and good wine selection. Servers were attentive, and good atmosphere that allowed conversations to be had easily. Would make a good date night outing or dinner with the in-laws.

I had the salmon with the vegetables and quinoa pilaf it was all very tasty. My husband had the prime rib dinner which was very tasty also but the server did not bring him the Yorkshire pudding which was part of the dinner. We had the strudel for dessert it was tasty but was not flaky like a freshly baked strudel should be.

Our server (who had just started working at Selkirk Grille the day we were there) was outstanding and a delightful young man. However the hostesses were less than welcoming and made me feel that I was bothering them despite the fact that the restaurant was almost empty. This is a consistent problem at this restaurant, although I believe these were new hostesses.

The food is not good value for money in my opinion except for the charcuterie board which was excellent and far more appetizing than the fish or pork tenderloin that my companions ordered.

I would go to this restaurant again (despite the inhospitable welcome and lack of comfortable ambiance) only because of the Charcuterie board and the wait staff. Also, it is at Heritage Park which I value as a Calgarian and have always supported.

A friend and I had a quiet lunch here on a Sunday. I enjoyed my coffee, chicken burger and fries, but my friend's gnocchi left a bit to be desired, flavor-wise. Service was prompt and we could have been in and out in an hour.

We frequent this restaurant every summer with our kids. I’ve never had a rating under four stars until now. Our last visit was extremely disappointing. The service was bad (not one smile or effort was made to make us feel welcome) and we waited five minutes after the food was delivered for cutlery and napkins (seems amateur for a restaurant of this caliber), the mahi-mahi was like rubber (there were two orders at our table and both were overcooked), the potatoes were undercooked, and our original reservation was on the patio (also confirmed by telephone) and they sat us in the restaurant. Overall we were very disappointed and will question whether to return to this restaurant after the terrible service. All the kids enjoyed their kids meals so there was one silver lining.

We had a nice time at the Grille. The food was excellent. I had the pork schnitzel burger and my friend had the spinach gnocchi. Both were excellent!

We were a bit disappointed; our server was not very friendly/helpful (we didn’t even get told the daily specials) and for the cost of the food, the portions were a bit on the small side.

Your location is amazing, however.

Overall good experience. Food was excellent. Service was more than adequate but not quite outstanding.The Friday beef tenderloin special was memorable. The pork schnitzel was also well received, as were the mahi-mahi and burger. Everything seemed freshly prepared, with attention to detail, as one would expect at this price point. Definitely worth a return visit

We enjoyed a nice late lunch on a very warm day. The food was very good and reasonably priced. We lingered after the meal and nursed our drinks and didn’t feel rushed a bit. Nice experience.

Had the tomato bocconcini salad which was very nice, lots of different tomatoes in a tasty vinaigrette. The portion was large enough for 2 people. Also had the pork schnitzel. Also a large portion. Pork was tender and I liked the sauce - could have eaten more sauce.

The food was delicious and the setting is comfortable. 90 minutes of free parking is too stingy to cover the time needed for a nice meal (this is the fault of the city of calgary parking services, not the restaurant). Service was adequate, although slightly amateur in quality - possibly a consequence of the labour shortage in the service industry rather than any deficiency in training. All togerther ours was a very pleasant experience and I definitely plan to return.

Thank you for the comments. Regarding parking, if you do go over the 90 minutes complimentary and register your vehicle for paid parking we will reimburse you that amount on your bill. Just a note for the next time we see you. Thank you!

A good selection and reasonable prices for lunch options. Because of the smoke we decided to eat in rather than on the patio, and it was quiet. Tables are well spaced apart.

It’s a great place for outdoor lunch with family or friends, but we stayed indoor this time because of the smoky sky condition due to wildfires in BC. Steak sandwich is my favourite, I ordered a dessert cheese cake as a surprise for my son bday. Waitress lighted up with a candle , brought it to the table which was a nice touch for the surprise!
Good food Good services ! Thank you.
