WORKSHOP kitchen + culture
One of the best restaurants in the downtown core. Location is superb. Food just as good. One of my top 3 easily.
Wow!! The food here was absolutely fabulous, as was the service from our server, Bobby -- who was very helpful with our menu decisions. We will absolutely be back again whenever we are in the city. Every course of the tasting menu was delightful, and the wine & beverage pairings were unique/unexpected but well chosen. The smoked beef tartar was excellent. The duck perogie was too. Both the cauliflower and the brussel sprouts side dishes were memorably superb. Oh I could go on and on, but will just finalize by saying that I will return whenever I am in Calgary.
Amazing experience! Food & service was impeccable, I even got a signed card for my celebration!
First time having a coursed meal, what an amazing experience with excellent service.
Fun dining experience - unique meals and tasty drinks
The food was incredible, service was professional and enjoyable
This was our first experience at this restaurant. Pleasant atmosphere, welcoming and eager staff. The a la crate menu offered the option of an individual or shared portion. The menu provided a broad range of dishes. Combination of flavors were interesting and balanced, although did not quite match the description. I am a stickler for food being served at the correct temperature and some dishes were not as hot as they should be, whether this is a result of sitting too long to be presented or by chef design . Overall I would certainly return for a second visit.
Had a wonderful time, the food was delicious. We loved it!
Great service from Bobby! Wish he was dressed more the part of his wonderful and friendly service. Food was great as always. The improv dessert was a notch less than expected, as the cake could be more moist. Or if the cake was supposed to be more dry, then would need more of the fruity puree. If there could be a couple more vegan options, would have allowed my friend to enjoyed her food as much as I enjoyed my non-vegan meal. Overall great experience as always.
Awesome! Went for lunch it was great. Will go back for dinner next
First time to Workshop, celebrating my daughters birthday. Can’t believe we haven’t been before! It was unbelievable. Been to lots of great Calgary restaurants but this one was definitely at the top! Great service, unreal food!
Their Lougheed Lunch special is a great price for what you all get. The food is delicious and always changing. The ambiance is nice and they service is very good.
I had the seafood curry which was wonderful, filled with salmon, snapper and shrimp while my companion enjoyed the soup and salad (simple but WONDERFULLY DONE). The mushroom soup was excellent!
Had the 3 course meal. Wish I did the drink pairing. Every course was an adventure of flavours and textures.
Thank you for the experience on top of the meal
They accommodated our requests with no trouble, really appreciated it!
Wonderful dining experience
Food was great and the service was spot on
There needs to be more education in gluten free options with the servers. I ended up getting sick from the potatoes which I think were cooked in the same deep fryer as wheat. Cross contamination needs to be understood and addressed. Otherwise great place
Great dining experience all around and one of better restaurants I have been to in Calgary. I did find the wine list over priced relative to other comparable restaurants, but despite that, still well worth going.
I will definitely be back.
A fantastic restaurant, meal and server. Thank you
It was good. Food was amazing.
I was a bit disappointed in the fish feature. The fish itself was fine but the chickpea curry was watery and a bit tasteless and I did not like the naan bread underneath the sauce. Usually the food is outstanding so this was a bit unusual.
Good fresh tasting food. Did the 3 course taster. Bobby was awesome. Great place to go as a group
What a great restaurant! Loved every bite. Knowledgable staff, fresh food.
We ordered the 5 course Chefs Menu and it was amazing, although we chose our own wine off the bat before ordering our food (and was a good choice) we would go with the wine pairing next time.
Our server was knowledgeable and experienced.
It was a great night.
Great food with delicious flavours. Had the Improv chefs choice meal, told the server we had a show to get to and he was able to compromise with a 4 course meal with wine pairing (rather than the 5 which would have been crunched for time) interesting flavours inspired by South America, France, Thailand, sounds like a mix but went really well together on our taster meal. Would definitely recommend for a date or special occasion!
Thoroughly enjoyed the “3 course surprise” dinner. Would not normally order duck but it was wonderful. Will definitely return.
Was just in for the soup and salad and it was excellent. Great quality food and the price is reasonable. They are also very flexible with making changes to the meal which I always appreciate.
Excellent! Will definitely be back. Gluten Friendly
The food was absolutely delicious and the Lougheed Lunch is a great deal. Awesome ambiance and service!
Our server mixed up the order and had we not questioned the cutlery presented we would have been served the wrong meals. We also did not get refills or water without asking. I expect those services for this price point.
One of the best meals I’ve had in years. Our server was attentive to our every need. Even helped us decide what would work best for my sister’s pregnancy restrictions. I will recommend this experience to everyone that asks for a restaurant recommendation. I will return as often as I am able
One of the best meals I ever had in Calgary. Amazing.
Amazing food as always. The quality and creativity of the dishes served here are superb. It's a bit pricey which is why we only go for special occasions but it is well worth it.
Amazing food, great service. Tried foods I never would have and it was all amazing.
Workshop is one of my favorite restaurants in Calgary. Service and execution of the set menu was great. My only complain would have to be that I felt the dishes were very ‘safe’ and didn’t have the creativity that sets the restaurants apart from others.
Staff and food were excellent, will definitely go back.
My Mother’s birthday
The food never disappoints at Workshop. The lougheed lunch is great for a business lunch, they always get me back to work within the hour. I do find it rather chilly on the cold winter days though (it’s an old building), but the ambience is generally very good.
I love Workshop for lunch - consistently great food, good value, and quiet enough to have a conversation at the table!
