I recently ate here with a colleague to celebrate a career milestone for both of us. We had both had previous connections to the Kensington Riverside Inn, as it was where our employer arranged for us to stay when we came to Calgary for our interviews. It seemed fitting to come back here to celebrate.
The Chef's table is an outstanding restaurant. The ambience is excellent, with the bustle of the kitchen, the relaxed lounge area or, as we chose, the outside patio. The waiter service is attentive but not intrusive. Occasionally it's a little pretentious, but forgivable. The food is always of a very high standard. We enjoyed three courses with wine, and each was beautifully presented and perfectly cooked.
I think we were the last to leave and the waiters remained and said goodbye with a smile and a thank you. All up, a perfect evening in a close to perfect venue. I will always be happy to go back here, anytime.
