                                              Not impressed! I made a reservation for a friends post wedding brunch on open table.ca and got the confirmation email with the time. However the diner had a different time for my reservation and could not give my group a table although they sat a group of the same size after I just talked to the staff proving the mix up was there’s. We never got a table so we had to leave. Very disappointed and not likely to return again.

                                              This was a birthday brunch for my husband. The Fine Diner was a great choice for breakfast. I had the muesli granola with Greek yogurt and my husband had the chocolate chips pancakes.

                                              I love their food and love that they donate any gratuities, shop local, share their leftovers with charities and reduce their environmental impact.

                                              Service was pretty slow - took 25 minutes to get a coffee with Kalua (15 min after I ordered a coffee with Baileys I was told they were out of Baileys). We both had breakfast dishes - Hash & French Toast. Vanilla Custard French Toast was decent but they seriously skimped on the lemon chantilly cream which was the highlight of the dish. The Pulled Pork Hash was ok but lacked flavour. Overall, not my favourite brunch but any means, wouldn’t return.

                                              Food was below average for the price. We were the only people in for brunch and the chef forgot to prepare half of our meal

                                              My boyfriend and I took another couple to the fine diner after church, right at lunch time. We made a reservation and was seated and served promptly. Friendly staff. Clean facility. Nice washroom. The food was really good, local grown food, healthy, and fair portion sizes. Celiac considerate which was great for my friend who requires gluten free.

                                              I hadn’t been to the Fine Diner for a couple of years and it feels different. It’s not as busy, the chalkboards aren’t full of specialty items/drinks/fun facts. The food was good but not as unique/specialty as I was used to from there. However, the bacon was divine!

                                              I ordered the smoked trout hash. When ot arrived the hash and hollandaise sauce were ice cold and the eggs were over cooked. It was extremly dissapointing. My girlfriends chicken and waffles were perfectly cooked and were amazing. I can only assume mine was finished 15 minites early and they just let it sit on the counter till hers was done. What make this poor preparation more unnaceptable is they were not even busy. There were only 4 other people in the whole place when we were having our meals prepared. When the waitress asked how everything was i told her and she just shrugged and asked if I wanted a recook to which i declined because of how long we had already waited. Do to this bad first impression i likely wont go back.

                                              Amazing food but I was very impressed with the mission to source locally and to support local community organizations with tips.

                                              Really good food!!! The mushroom arugula eggs Benedict was insane (thank truffle oil!) and the bacon was probably the best bacon I've ever had - no joke. Nice atmosphere and I like the meal share program for tips. Would def recommend and rerun again 👍

                                              This used to be a good place to go for breakfast and lunch, but not any more. This is our third bad experience; service was poor and the food was bad. Not sure what happened, really is too bad.

                                              Disappointing. Heard positive reviews but were disappointed. The food came in stages so out of 4 people only 2 of us received our meals at the same time while the first served was almost finished. His was also barely warm and my eggs were also barely warm but we had waited long for the food that we just gave up and ate. Not going to be returning. Somehow I think that people are under the impression that because it is in Inglewood that it is a 'cute' place but I was not impressed. We also waited quite a while for our food to arrive when there were only 3 tables occupied when we ordered.

                                              The food seems to have gone downhill and was disappointing as I've been here many times in the past few years.

                                              Went for my first time since it's been taken over by new management and was quite disappointed. The prices are sky high and quite ridiculous for breakfast food. I see in previous comments that the "tips are built in to the prices" but they don't advertise that boldly and the debit machine still asks for tips when you pay. Service was also below par. There were 4 of us with empty water glasses, I had to flag our server down to ask for more water and she only filled mine, no one else. Highlight was that the food was good and came out quickly, but the restaurant was only half full. We used to come ALL the time to the Fine Diner and there was always a full house with people waiting outside. Unfortunately, won't be going back which is very disappointing as it was a favorite restaurant of mine for so long.

                                              Bread and hash tasted old/leftover, could not cut bread used for benny with the butter knife provided. Server was asking about the cheque while we were still eating - felt rushed/encouraged to leave while restaurant was empty. Ordered/ate/pushed out within 30 minutes. Usually so good - was an expensive disappointment.

                                              We used to come here all the time. Something has changed. The food has gone downhill and so has the service. We were disappointed that we spent about $50 on two bacon and egg breakfasts plated with food we had not asked for. There used to be an abundance of seasonal fruits on the plate, but a standard bacon and egg now only comes with potato hash, two eggs, and two slices of bacon. My husband asked for no potatoes (fruit instead) and still got potatoes with sliced apples and oranges. This is not what I expected for $50.

                                              This is one of my wife's favourite breakfast spots to go to. The food is great, the service is excellent and we always look forward to coming back!

                                              We had brunch at Fine Dining on July 1st, 2017 (the reservation was easily made 2 days before on Open Table). The portions are large (the pancake stack -3- was huge), the prices are a bit high ($17 for said pancakes), the ambience is so-so and the noise (music) was too loud for my taste. However, the service was friendly and the food was tasty.

                                              I met Chef Szostok at Foodies in the Park, hosted by great events catering where I work, and his protege Winter. I love that the bistro gives back to the community with donations of food and money, has friendly staff, and a great menu!

                                              We shared two plates for lunch and both were very tasty. Perhaps it was a good thing they had run out of their Chocolate Peanut Butter pie.

                                              Food is fantastic! Service is ok. Love that you can make brunch reservations. Personally, I dislike sitting in the back section as there is zero atmosphere back there.

                                              Love this place, take clients for lunch here regularly. Great food and service, but music is a touch loud for business lunches. But wth that said, they're catering to a much crowd and not much business talk there. Highly recommend.....

                                              This is a breakfast favourite - never disappoints. Not the restaurant's fault, but access will be so much easier once repairs are completed on 9th Avenue. It's a restaurant you'll go to again & again!

                                              This is one of my favourite breakfast places, but on this occasion, I was quite disappointed with the service. The staff seemed like they had too many tables each. Also, we found out they were changing the menu the next day, so they had run out of at least 3 items that we requested, included pastries, roasted duck, and tea. I heard another one from another table very shortly thereafter. On a busy Sunday, I thought this was very disappointing. However! The food that they did have was delicious, and The Fine Diner always has a fairly pleasant vibe.

                                              For a Sunday, we expected to wait for quite some time but a table was arranged within 15 minutes. We were seated on the inner dining room in the back, a recent expansion. The lighting was dim and atmosphere needed a lift but the server explained that the overflow seating was temporary and about to go through a renovation. The food was excellent, and I still find myself thinking about their bacon! It was crispy and thick but sweet and flavourful. Prices are what you would expect to find at any typical hipster brunch establishment in Calgary. Would return and spend some time walking around Inglewood afterwards too! Street parking was widely available.

                                              Went for brunch. Quite a varied selection of dishes. The hash medley is a very good idea and well made. But overall the food is not the most tasty. Too bad, cause decor is really nice!

                                              So Good! The food was enjoyed by all of our party. We were welcomed at the door and seated promptly. Our server was accommodating to our delayed ordering due our talking and our requests to adapt some menu items was obliged. The Bennys were "amazing", the Poutine (wild mushroom) delicious and the Frittata very satisfying (without the jalepenos). No room for dessert - but next time...!
