The food was delicious, we loved the dishes we choose and the variety of vegetable dishes was a welcomed change. Although we liked our server's suggestions and he was attentive to our table, his descriptions of the food and drink was not very good. For the wine, he essentially repeated the names distracting us with words and no description of the wine nor a pairing suggestion. Same with the food, he repeated what was written on the menu, offering an additional 'this dish is awesome, the flavour is cool.' You get the picture. Overall, we would absolutely go back to try some of the dishes we didn't get a chance to sample.

I took my hubby here for his birthday. The food exceeded our expectations. Not only was the food delicious but we left feeling satisfied as the portion sizes are generous. It was the first time in a long time I felt my money was well spent eating out in Calgary. I will be back again!

Best vegetables ever! Highly recommend the carrots and the green beans. Also the butterscotch pudding is so much better than it sounds. If you love sponge toffee, go for it. Sat facing the kitchen and loved watching the food come out. The vibe of the staff was awesome and our server was excellent.

I’ve been back again and again to Ten Foot Henry. Everything on the menu is amazing creative and well plated. My favourite is the yam tortilla.

Sat at the counter and bartender was attentive and helpful with suggestions. Shred the tomatoes which are my favourite and then a pasta that was fabulous.
The room was lively but easy to carry a conversation.

Reservations are a must as this place is constantly packed. The venue is lovely, the food is amazing and the service is exceptional. If you are looking for a place to have a quiet dinner, this isn't it. However it's the buzz of conversation that adds to the ambiance.

Ten Foot Henry never fails to disappoint. Great food and perfect portions!
This was my fourth time there and my husband's first. We went for his birthday and he loved it.
Each of their dishes is hand crafted with a great attention to detail and just so delicious. The staff is also incredibly attentive and polite.
The only reason I don't give Ambiance 5 stars is due to the noise level. While I have never been bothered, there is a constant buzz of lively chatter at dinner time so I do not recommend for quiet dates or meals.
I'll keep going back.
Give TFH a try. It will be worth it!

The customer service here is incredible! We had shown up for our reservation and unfortunately their wasn’t a table ready that could accommodate us. The host and servers apologized multiple times and did their best to accommodate us at the time. Once we got sat at our table they came and checked on us often and brought over a couple free, popular dishes as we had not been their before. Incredible service, will highly recommend to anyone!
