Great location---nice patio area but not available for reservation.
Busy to the point of being staff frantic! Bartender did not need to take bar-0rder
time for a lecture on whiskies!
Finally received a table and were able to order.
Cocktails were good but slow. Appetizers were deviled eggs--very good for restaurant
version, crab cakes were excellent--brioche-style, cheese/potato taters were Ho-Hum!
Staff was friendly but a little disorganized. Certainly a much better overall presentation
from when we experienced this restaurant after their opening.
We will try one more time!

We stopped on a Sunday night after ten days in the national parks. They offered a "Sunday supper" tasting menu with several appetizers, mains and sides for one price. The variety of offerings were unusual with some unexpected flavor profiles. For the most part they were great. A couple of items were just a little off in the combinations. Service was excellent and a good value for the quality and quantity.

This restaurant is likely one of the best in the city. Consistently recommended by Calgarians.

Great menu, appropriate portions (not too much, not too little) and well informed, attentive wait staff.

My only tip is to make sure the cooks ease up on the salt.

Bon Apetit!

No thanks. Food underwhelming and too salty. "Lack lustre" came to our minds when we finished dinner on Tuesday evening. Not worth the hefty bill presented at the end of the night as we were still hungry. There are better places worth checking out in this city.

I'm a definite foodie. and this place just didn't cut it for me. I was disappointed given all the hype it gets. We went with friends for their family-style dining on Sundays where they offer set menus (changing every week). The portions and quality of food were just OK. The ambience was great, and I love that the kitchen is open so that you can see the chefs preparing the food. The tables are VERY close together though, making it almost impossible to get in and out of your seat without asking the people behind you to move (and we are pretty small/average size people). With all the foodie options in Calgary starting to offer family style dining, we won't be back to this place.
