My husband and I have travelled the globe and enjoy a good meal. We were excited to try this restaurant. The day before our dining experience we secured one of their last tables available on OpenTable. We arrived on time and were kept waiting for 10 minutes. We sat down, ordered some wine (which was excellent) and were again kept waiting to order our mains for about 20mins. Yes, they were busy, but we’ve been to many incredibly busy venues and have been served in a more timely fashion. Finally our food. We ordered the carrots, the cauliflower, the steak and the tagliatelle. All were average at best with the attempted main star of each dish being the sauce. If you do not like spicy, non-traditional and oily sauces, you will be let down-we do not like our sauces oily, and this was our main issue with the food. Each dish itself was flavourless but the sauces were relied on to bring life back into the plate. Unfortunately, none of the sauces delivered and left a lot to be desired. We expected more and left the restaurant disappointed. The music was excessively loud-we love going to concerts and enjoy every genre of music, but we couldn’t even hear each other over dinner! Good luck if you decide to give this venue a chance. The decor is great-modern contemporary.
Love it every time I go! You can’t have a bad meal :)
The food was fantastic, the service was exceptional, love the open kitchen and the music and sound quality was perfect. We had a great time. Thanks!
Ten foot Henry is one of our favourites. It never disappoints, great food, service and cocktails! Perfect for any occasion or a boring Tuesday!
Father’s Day celebration
We had an amazing dinner. The service was super and the food fabulous. My only complaint is that the noise level was loud so conversation with my 83 year old Mom was a bit of a challenge. Btw the caramel desert and the coconut cake are to die for! Thanks.
We live in the USA. I researched Calgary restaurants and came up with this one. The interior design, food and service were all excellent. Our only suggestions would be to have more small plate proteins, lower cost of veggie options and decrease size somewhat. It was definitely enough for sharing with 2 or 3 people. I appreciate target demographic is 20-40 and thus there is fairly loud techno music. For the senior set (I am 67, my husband 80) who are “foodies” maybe lower music volume some and/or try something other than the techno music. I find it repetitive and annoying. My husband loved the omelet and the tomatoes and cheese with bread. I had carrots (loved the chickpeas) and salad. It could have used a bit more salad dressing. Staff was very pleasant and seating comfortable.
Disappointed all dishes were not as good as previous visits. Won’t return for awhile
Excellent food. Great service as well
Very tight seating. Also very slow for a working lunch. Food was great. Servers were professional.
We’d heard the rumours and thought we’d give it a shot, knowing we were going to talk a bit of business as well as have a bite to eat. Great experience... love the greenery and you can tell they have put a lot of thought into sound management so, although you can hear the music, you can still hold a conversation and also not hear your neighbours chatter. Also noticed a distinct lack of paintings/artwork which also makes you want to focus on your company and food rather than what’s going on around you visually. Having the kitchen out in the open where you can see the impeccable cleanliness and professionalism was great too. Fantastic service and will definitely recommend to others. Pleasantly surprised!
Imaginative, delicious food, attentive service.
I’ve been here a couple times and I’m always impressed with their plant forward menu! It’s a place that keeps you coming back for more. The food is exceptional they are quick at getting plates to you. The cost of the food is matched well with the quality of dish you are given. I highly recommend the snap peas and the Caico de Pepe! Dishes are meant to share so great for a date night or family dinner
Had the brunch on a Saturday afternoon. Staff were all very friendly. We split the baby kale and avocado omelette, bacon, and a salmon toast. it was my boyfriend's 30th birthday and they brought out a butterscotch dessert with a candle. everything was perfect. will definitely go again!
A wonderfully casual, but heightened experience. I completely enjoyed every meal, and the idea of a family style served meal was interesting and brought me and my guests closer together. And the service was absolutely fantastic, everyone was gracious and kind and patient. I would definitely recommend the cauliflower.
outstanding. pickerel was to die for. chicken a little dry. will be back when next in Calgary
Great restaurant! The only critique I really have is given it is a "mostly" plant based restaurant, there's suprisingly few dishes that can be made vegan. A lot of vegetarian options but only a handful can be vegan-ized. I still felt limited in what I could order. Overall still a great place but would recommend laying off the dairy in the dishes- especially given the focus is food right from the earth. :)
Ten Foot Henry is a great dining experience. The "family" style plating was perfectly portioned, the service was excellent, very clean and bright. Loved the cocktail menu !
Incredible food, the ingredients are simple but so well paired together that each dish is the BEST POSSIBLE VERSION of that dish you've ever had. For example the pomodoro pasta - so simple, but so incredibly delicious. The service was incredible, Rob my server went out of his way to ensure that we had everything we needed.
Overall 10/10 experience.
Overall good experience. We ordered the Asian pear, the mushroom omelet, and the beet salad and were not disappointed. The tagliatelle was great but the only thing that let us down was the spaghetti. Tasted great but I wish we were informed that it was going to be a dry pasta dish. Otherwise, the staff was very keen on ensuring our waters were refilled even though we could have refilled it ourselves. Would recommend for experience but not for weekly casual dining.
Had trouble getting a reservation. Only option was 4:45 or 8:00.....went for the earlier time and the place never really filled up. Food was really good, but a bit pricey. (Still trying to imagine how carrots could be so expensive....) Liked the layout, but the music was sooooo bad. Service was good and someone at the door did congratulate my daughter on her graduation as we exited.
I have an amazing experience every time I go to Ten Foot Henry. The service is always great and the food even better.
Creative contrasting & complimentary flavours presented stylishly. Good value for the portions. Almost perfect service. Good vibe with a heart. Thank you for a stellar dining experience.
Food is always so good, never had a bad experience here. Would definitely recommend. Tomatoes, potatoes and the butterscotch pudding are my favourites.
Shawn and staff were very nice and accommodating. Very soothing ambiance.
We had a Citrus Spritz, and 2 iced teas (sweet), the citrus spritz had way too much wine in it, the "sweet" iced teas were anything but sweet. The waitress did take them off of our bill which was very nice. We did enjoy 3 rather flavourful ginger ales. The food was tasty, our waitress was very attentive.
Every thing was exceptional. Food, wine, service. One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Thank you 😊
Great evening. Great food and great service.
By far my new favourite restaurant in the city!!! I love every item on the menu! Wine list is fabulous too! Honestly every bite is incredible- finally a restaurant that lets the ingredients speak for themselves and not overpowered by some new “fusion” design with no cohesion to the full menu! Everything is fresh and delicious!!
There was a mix-up with our bill that we didn't even notice and the restaurant called us cause they noticed. Not only is the food and service always outstanding when we go there to eat but the honesty when they called us hours later set things right was amazing.
By far our favorite spot in Calgary for dinner or brunch. Exceeds expectations everytime.
Love, love, love this restaurant! Incredible food and service.
Our young family went with a couple friends to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and the ambiance was warm and upbeat. The dishes were fresh, innovative and delicious with lots of veggies, which we love. We enjoyed trying a variety of dishes through the shareable style portions. Thanks very a great experience! We will definitely be back.
Always a great experience at ten foot Henry. Great staff, excellent food. There’s a reason it’s our ‘go-to’ restaurant.
Great decor and even better food! The jerk spice cauliflower ⭐️
Wonderful experience in a cozy corner of the restaurant. Our server was attentive and professional without being annoying. Everything we ate was great there are no bad choices.
I have frequented Ten Foot Henry on many occasions. i love the "share food" idea. Love the original dishes. Love the atmosphere and I have always had great service.
An absolute must try in Calgary - I just wish they were located in Vancouver BC!
Great experience, lively atmosphere, wonderful food!!
Quaint little restaurant in the heart of downtown. Loved the mid century Scandinavian vibe. Perfect for our anniversary dinner. The vegetables were cooked to perfection and for anyone suffering from a dairy allergy or gluten allergy the Chocolate avocado torte was to die for.
Smaller portions for “sharing”, but amazing overall
