    Food was delicious. However the evening was soured as we felt that the server was rushing us out throughout our entire time there. She even let us know she was ‘cut’ and essentially asked us to wrap it up. I’ve previously worked in the restaurant industry for many years and that quality of service would never have been acceptable. I’m hoping to try out the other location as I did enjoy the drinks and food and understand one poor experience doesn’t reflect entirely on the restaurant.

    Wine selection and pairings were excellent. The food was freshly prepared and the flavours were well balanced. Oysters were fresh and tasty. Quality of base ingredients , really was average at best. Eggplant chips were oily- tasted burned overdone. The gnocchi was fried & chewy, they were over done and the kale was leathery & underdone. The steaks were not cooked to order, thin cut ribeyes were ordered med- rare and came well done, likely due to the fact that they were cut so thin.

    The whole experience was very enjoyable. We had the lobster nachos and crab cakes for an appetizer. The mains were also great and we tried the suggested Rose which was very good. We will definitely be coming back. Duncan gave us wonderful service and were very impressed, will definitely be coming back.

    Had a very enjoyable family dinner date with our toddler. The kid’s menu is one of the best we’ve seen (although I’m not sure why there’s salad on the flatbread, unless my kid is the only kid who thinks it’s just for rabbits). We enjoyed a selection of happy hour tapas and beers (happy hour is all day sunday!)

    We found our visit very enjoyable. The food was nicely prepared and great value for the money. The service was outstanding right up until we wanted to leave. Everyone seemed to disappear with no explanation, it took quite a while to get the bill. All in all it was a nice night out.

    Meatballs were fantastic, the Happy Hour charcuterie platter however was disappointing: the pepper salami tasted like it had been open for a few days already, the smoked Gouda was good, but that was it already about the charcuterie. The garnish was super tasty but well, that does not hide the fact that it’s not nearly what one does think when hearing „platter“. We hadn’t been there in a while, and maybe our good memories had set our expectations high. To leave with a good note: the wine recommendations were really good.

    It’s a beautiful place. The chairs can be uncomfortable, not a good setting for enjoyment of your wonderful menu. Although the food and wine experience it’s wonderful, I wish we had a nice table with high enough chairs to sit properly. These. Hairs are more of lounge chair, not dinning chairs.

    Had the valentine's day special. The food here was subpar - The beef used in the beef wellington was awful. It was full of fat and gristle. Why would you use a cut of beef that has fat and gristle and then wrap that in puff pastry and cover it in gravy? The customer can't see the fat cap to cut off the gristle and fat. The amount of times my husband and I bit into gristle was disgusting! Also - don't call it a lava cake if it's cold, and there's no molten chocolate in the middle... that's a brownie. The service was poor, the waitress seemed grumpy, didn't say goodbye to us when we left, was very slow to check on us and bring the bill. She just dropped down the machine and walked away and didn't see her for the rest of the night. Not a good experience. Paid $60/each for dinner and it was a major let down. I will not be returning.

    The Sticky Soy Sesame Steak and Mushroom Bites were amazing!! We also enjoyed the Pork Belly Lettuce Wraps and Charcuterie. It was more than enough food for the two of us, but I was wishing that we had a larger group so that I could have tried more of the items on the menu. I will have to visit again the next time that I’m in Calgary.

    The service was outstanding. Our server was lovely, the chef and the manager both came to our table several times and they were wonderful as well. The food was just okay, and I did specifically make a reservation for the jazz that was playing, and we were seated on the other side of the venue and couldn’t see the performance… that was a bit disappointing as I specifically reserved for that.

    I really like this restaurant so it was a natural choice to go and celebrate there. However I wished the restaurant denied to take a reservation at 9. The constant rush and hustle made us skip on the experience that we had before. We felt pushed to order few times and it made us skip appetizers and desserts. Speed finish the dinner and go.
