    The cheese fondue was so delicious!! My partner and I shared it for a belated Valentine’s Day dinner and accompanied it with shrimp and tenderloin. My plum sour cocktail was very yummy and my partner enjoyed his bourbon and corn cocktail. We got the banana cheesecake for dessert and it was heavenly! Our server was kind and polite. I would highly recommend this unique, delicious, and lively dining experience to anyone!

    Food was great as usual and same with the service. We started with a beet salad then had the cheese fondue for 2. The salad was served on a plate that was chipped in the edge…..not sure why but it made the beautiful salad look not so beautiful but it tasted great!! There were a few staff members right beside us at the bar and we could hear their conversation. Listening to these 2 gentlemen chat about a certain a women’s breast was something that we didn’t want/need to hear about…..just an fyi for any of your staff that are standing around the end of your bar. We could hear the whole their whole conversation.

    Came by on a Friday evening. Loved the casual yet upscale vibe of the place. The waiter was very knowledgable of all the different wine options. Started with an amazing roasted beet dish, and then followed with steamed mussels that were absolutely as fresh as I’ve ever had. The Arctic char was amazing. Can’t wait to go back again.

    My group and I all agree that this was some of the best food we’ve had in a really long time. It’s the day after, and I’m still thinking about the cheesy fondue, the potatoes, salad, beef cheek pasta, the list continues. And the service was incredible!! Our server was super friendly, personable and very knowledgeable. Amazing joint, we will definitely be back again soon.

    Fantastic night out. The staff are all friendly & attentive. Food is divine. Cocktails are outstanding. Location is in the heart of Calgary's entertainment district. Whether its a romantic meal, business meeting or a family/group night out this is a must book and memorable place. Even met the owner Cliff, what a gem! We will be back.

    We had booked the new years Fondue dinner a few weeks ago. We weren't informed prior to starting our meal the lobster tail and 1 other item was not going to be included as they had run out. The lobster was substituted with 2 scallops, the other didn't have anything to take its place. Considering we booked well in advance the restaurant shouldn't have run out of the pre selected menu items.

    There’s a reason this place has been around as long as it has. Lately (last year or two) this place has gone from great to exceptional! Incredible food, impeccable service and a tremendous atmosphere make for the perfect experience. Special thanks to Chef Myles and Josh for making our experience memorable.

    Great dinner and service. I will say that the cynicism of ramping the tip defaults up to 16%, 21% etc. has invited me to reduce tipping in the future. That was irritating.

    No one was there to greet you to give your table. Waited for five minutes before I had to walk inside to find someone. That was still okay as they were busy. Server was not at all nice, was rushing, rude. This poor standard of service was never seen in Calgary before.

    Great service. The gnocchi could use more seasoning, the beef cheeks pasta (which was very al dente) also lacked some flavouring. Other than that, we were very pleased with our evening.

    What a great restaurant! We’ll definitely come again, the cheese fondu was fun to share as an appetizer, our server was very attentive to our needs, kept us on time so we weren’t late to our show. Manager came and greeted us and checked in during our supper…. Easy going yet professional vibe at the Living Room! We had the Steak and Lasagna and they were incredible! See you again soon to try something different from the menu to experience all the great offerings!

    I was there for a brunch date with my 5year old daughter. They almost ruined it for me. I ordered the Crushed Fingerling Potatoes. What I got served should not be served to a dog; the appearance was terrible, the bowl was filled with an excess of oil. It was as though they were passing me a clear message they did not want me there. I challenged the server on the oil to which she immediately admitted it was indeed excessive and took the meal away. It was replaced with another bowl. OMG! the difference this time was night and day!!! The meal was served the proper way this time. For the sake of my daughter, I kept my cool. My biggest confusion was the server; she was the most pleasant and graceful. It was either of two things; she did as she was ordered or she deserves a spot in Hollywood. I will like to think it is the former.

    Tasty food. Much better prices at happy hour. Had some delay using an OpenTable cheque but once manager became involved, was accepted without delay. Atrium was very comfortable, warm and brighter than inside dining. Was nice for our birthday guests to get a complimentary bubbly.
