Been here many times over the past 10 years. Booked for mothers day brunch and was very disappointed in the food items as well as the service .

Sunday breakfast buffet food offering needs to be updated asap.

Great service and very accommodating on food allergies requests. It's nice to have a selection that is more than just salad.

The brunch was very good. There was a HUGE variety of food to choose from. If you didn't want just breakfast, there was a whole area dedicated to non-breakfast items, like a charcuterie board, salads, soups, dumplings, kabobs, seafood, dessert, etc. The coffee is a bit too strong here, so just be prepared.

My only complaint, our server was not very attentive. We had to flag him down several times just to clear plates and refill water. He was friendly though.

Our food was amazing, we had the maple brussel sprouts and the polenta. If you're not a fan of brussel sprouts, you will be after these ones.

We do like the convenience and the quality of food for before CPO concerts!

Visiting Calgary from the UK, we took friends for brunch here. There is so much selection everyone could find plenty to like. The food is beautifully presented and the service good; our juice and coffee were constantly refilled. I would definitely recommend it.

If anyone is even considering Thomson's take a chance and go to it! My family and I (which was 5 people) got an easy reservation which was not needed as it wasn't busy in the dinning room at all, and we absolutely loved it. First of all, it is in the Hyatt which has gorgeous art pieces everywhere, including the restaurant. The service was fantastic and they were always there to fill water and get you anything you needed. It was quiet so anyone who may have some issues hearing it would be a perfect location. The food for the money was fabulous and the wine was delicious and they had a great selection. Take a chance at this hotel restaurant, you will not be disappointed!

First visit to this establishment and i must say that the food selection and presentation was very good. Their level of service left much to be desired. They asked if we wanted bread, after taking our order, to which we declined. Yet, just prior to our meals arriving our server delivered us the bread and then moments later it was removed by another server. Our server did NOT return after the first few bites to inquire on our impression of our meals.
