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!
Lovely restaurant that is close by my home. It is a really nice to have a cozy and classy restaurant that has really yummy food so near by!
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.
The food was amazing and so was the service. It was our first time here and will be back!
Lovely spot on the patio on a sunny day. Food is always good and service very friendly.
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.
The restaurant itself was nice and not overly loud. Food and drinks were ok but not worth the price.
seating staff were great, food was good but service was slow. not sure if there wasnt enough waiters for the amount of tables there ?
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.
Made a patio res. Told lt was full . Had to sit inside. Not Good
A good working lunch on the patio. The service from Shelly was good, prompt and professional.
Waiter was very attentive and accommodating, excellent service. We had the beef burger and the beef was very tasteful and done to perfection.
Service and food were excellent. Server was pleasant and friendly. She ensured we had what we needed (e.g. drinks topped up) and food was acceptable.
We enjoyed the your Restaurant very much especially the great retro Atmosphere.
And thank you for the good Food and Service.
low key anniversary lunch was very enjoyable.
Will do again if we are able.
Thanks to staff !!
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.
The food was great but the service needs a bit of work. They couldn't find our reservation which I think is the point of Open Table??
We go here every year for our anniversary. Love the food and the atmosphere. Food selection is always wonderful.
Beautiful setting and delicious fresh food. Unfortunately, they were extremely short staffed. The poor servers were run off their feet. A common theme in this covid world.
Staff worked very hard but it was too much to expect of them. The food was lovely as usual.
My wife and I had an enjoyable evening out. Food was excellent and we would certainly do it again. Nice bright open restaurant in a good location.
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!
Would certainly go back.
Enjoyed the terrace. Food was okay but not yummy.
Great service and great food. Stayed a bit longer and the team working were super nice about it.
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.
Lovely lunch with friends. Friendly service. Good food. Everyone ate different items from the menu. All were enjoyed.
just an expensive version of milestones really. Not great, not terrible.
Food was good and the setting is great. Lots to see in the general area which adds to the experience.
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
Thank you for your positive feedback. Hope to see you again soon.
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.
Great food and amazing service
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.
Thank you for your positive comments. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
The service was quick, friendly and professional. The food was good… my friend said he never ate quinoa as fast and enjoyed it as much.
I’ll be back.
Thank you for the positive review. Hope to see you again soon.
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.
Hope to see you again when the smoke clears.
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.
Thank you for your positive feedback. Hope to see you again soon.
Went there on a Friday to sit on the patio. Service was actually quite exceptional -- we had five people taking care of us to make sure we had a lovely lunch. Food was good as well!
Thank you for your comments. Hope to see you again soon.
Terribly slow service and customer service was equally as poor. Had to ask for menus, cutlery and water as a start. Food, however, is outstanding.
Thank you for providing feedback. Unfortunately due to the current labor shortage we are not staffed to our full capacity and I do apologize that you did not receive the strong customer service we are usually known for. Hope you will give us another chance in the future.
