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.

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.

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.

We went there for New Year Eve dinner. The waiter was absolutely experienced and respectful. Food was perfect. I got Irish coffee for desert which was the best I have ever had. I got a white wine and my husband got a red one. Both were awesome. Also, the restaurant is really kid's friendly.

Thomson's had an amazing New Years Eve dinner special. Avacado and pistachio salad to start, Prime rib and prawns with mashed potatoes and veggies for the main and a delicious white chocolate and pomegranate dessert. Plus champagne all for $65 a person. My parents and I really enjoyed our dinner! Best prime rib we have ever had! Service was great! We will come back soon for sure!

Recently had Sunday brunch and was overall happy with the meal. Attentive servers are always checking on you and making sure your coffee and juice is topped up. Very good brunch selection ranging from usual breakfast to the more luncheon variety. Only complaint is food is not hot enough .... eggs, bacon etc were lukewarm... Did not see covers on these dishes ... maybe that would help.. Love the candy selection in the dessert section.

The breakfast prices are unreasonable and I expect get paid because tourists don't know what their other local options are. $25 for the breakfast buffet is an insult and will likely prevent me from returning. I can leave the table at Cora's (which is only a couple of blocks away) stuffed for $15.

The staff was very efficient and attentive. They kept the water and coffee cups full and removed the used dishes promptly, as well as replenishing the utensils. It was a birthday celebration for one of my friends and the staff somehow knew and brought a dessert with a candle in it and they all sang "Happy Birthday" to her. We moved to the lounge, where two of us ordered prosecca but, by mistake, we were brought Mimosas. The waiter realized the mistake before he reached us but served one of us her wine and took the mimosas back. He returned with the proseccas and then later returned with the mimosas, on the house. He was ver attentive and friendly. One of my friends knew him and his family from many years before. All in all, we enjoyed the day and Thomsons was a perfect choice of venue.

I love going to Thomsons for Sunday Brunch. I love the atmosphere and the food choices. It's not just pancakes and eggs. There was a person in our group who was on a special diet and even she made a comment about the variety and quality of food. $34 is a bit pricey, but still well worth it for a great selection and quality.
