We really enjoyed our New Year's dinner. The service and the food was great. The only challenge we had was the parking. There was no wheelchair parking available although I had been there a month before and there was parking available at that time. I understand that the parking is controlled by the City of Calgary and they were having some kind of light show and changed the available parking. I feel that our experience at the Selkirk Grille once we were inside was fantastic but somehow accommodation should be made for customer to park that are there for dinner.

Service was slow even though the restaurant was half empty. We had to pour own wine as there was no service in that regard. The French Onion soup was mushy and terrible. Two spoonfuls and that was it. The Fish & Chips were edible but not great as they used to be. Sadly this restaurant has slid into the abyss. We won’t be back anytime soon sadly.

Very few vegetarian choices. No entrees but they made a vegetarian risotto when asked.
I Was previously given a 10% off coupon when we dined here for a special event.
The acting manager said it had already been used ( it hadn’t) and wouldn’t honour it. That was disappointing.
Prices have gone up a lot but that seems to be at every restaurant since the pandemic.

I made a reservation and they gave us a table next to a door when it was -20 outside. We asked to move to the middle of the restaurant where it would be warmer. The restaurant had one other table seated at this time. The waiter suggested a table for two next to an electrical panel and the bar area. We said no and move one table over. The food was a 2/10 for both salmon main and crab cake appetizer. The waitress was nice and brought coffee refills after dinner. I think she could tell we weren’t impressed with our meals. Overpriced for the food quality. The location is beautiful and quiet. Free 90 minute parking. Don’t forget to register your license plate in the machine! I would recommend the cafe but not the restaurant.

Half of the food served was not up to par - fish was over cooked on the outside and cold in the center - crab cakes were tasteless and cold in the center. There was some consideration on the bill however this was a disappointing experience after many previous great meals … hope it is a one off

This was not our first time at Selkirk Grille, but sadly one dish that we ordered was below expectations. The total bill was adjusted accordingly.

We would certainly go back; i think the poor dish was an anomaly.

This is truly a hidden gem in Calgary

Great value for the food served,
Interesting menu, reasonably priced including the wine list.
My only comment is that I find the environment cold, chairs , tables, walls and bar are all wood,
Place needs some warmth with fabric, upholstery, more comfortable chairs etc,
Lighting is too bright, lunch environment not really for dining.
Staff friendly and service great.

Great food - as always with generous potions. I had the Sirloin Steak and my Husband had the Pork Schnitzel and both were delicious. We started with the baked Brie - which is actually deep fried and served with a compote and artisan crackers - this unique twist on a classic. This is the first time we’ve been back to Rouge since August 2020 and pandemic lockdown so it was a welcome treat to go to one of our very favorite restaurants in town!

We ordered the Prime Rib. It looked like a 1/4 inch slice of ham cut with a band saw.
The taste was fine, but the eye appeal of a thick, garlic smelling piece if prime rib was not there. It was our anniversary and I booked 3 weeks in advance. I was very disappointed.
The restaurant had 3 other tables occupied and was dead silent. There were 5 staff working. Their was no smell of food.
If we ever go there again, I would avoid their "prime rib" Saturday night special.
The offered an elk dish and a wild boar dish that sounded interesting.

Bottom line, the 4 of us found it adequate. Certainly not special.

For my wife’s birthday we decided to celebrate it with our kids at Selkirk Grille. We’ve had meals there in the past and the food has always been excellent. The food this time was also excellent. We chose the prime rib special for ourselves (we looked at the online menu before arriving) and the kids ordered off the kids menu. We enjoyed the food but were disappointed with the server. Perhaps he was having a difficult day, but he wasn’t very friendly, barely spoke to us & did not mention the daily specials or recommendations. He refilled our waters and checked on us once, but never asked us about our evening our how we were were doing. Also, when I reserved our table online there is an option to select the reason for dining and I selected “birthday.” Obviously nobody reads that section and nobody asked about my wife’s birthday. We’ll still be back, but hope our next server is friendly and outgoing.

Our food was awful, had the Turkey special, the bun was so hard and the turkey was extremely dry. All six of our meals were very disappointing. Won’t go back or recommend.

We love the Selkirk Grille. It is our go-to restaurant. The food is FANTASTIC and good value. Although business casual is the typical dress code, we did find some customers very inappropriately dressed for the atmosphere the Selkirk Grille typically invites. Our usual table was not available, so we were seated on the other end of the restaurant, and unfortunately, were seated next to some very rude customers. This put a bit of a damper on the end of what should have been a perfect evening. Even so, we will definitely return time and time again.

Went here on a double date with my brother and our girlfriends. It was slow, 2 - 3 other tables at the time. Service was very slow, we had to repeatedly wave down our server to order a drink or ask for a refill.
Empty dishes on our table were not cleared off the table until we asked after 20 minutes + if they could clean it up. When we made an order with the server he was very impolite. He said next to nothing to us the entire time and didn't have a smile.
We ordered 2 of the 44 oz Tomahawk steak for 2 dinners. We waited well over 2 hours for our food to come out. (4:30-6:43). Both of our steaks came out overcooked, but we decided not to complain because it had already taken so long.
After the meal, our waitress came out with the bills incorrectly. We had noticed late so we pointed it out and asked to get a refund for the incorrect items on our bill.
Our server went to get a manager.
Once the manager came over I decided to say something. I said, "excuse me. I just wanted to let you know that we haven't been satisfied with the service tonight."
I waited for a reply and he looked at me and ignored me.
I said again "excuse me. I just wanted to inform you of a couple concerns we had regarding our supper tonight."
He once again ignored me.
The third time I said "excuse me. Are you just going to ignore me when I'm right in front of you trying to voice a concern?"
The manager then proceeded to tell us how tomahawk steaks take 40 minutes to cook (nowhere near 2 hours and 15 minutes) and that we need to be patient with the server.
My girlfriend then said "you can't at the least offer us an apology to make this right?"
He said "yeah were sorry" and then looked away.
We left this restaurant upset and feeling ripped off
