“Beautiful patio... fabulous food... great find :-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

We absolutely loved Cilantro. The food is all prepared fresh using local/organic ingredients where possible and is beautifully presented.

They had some very interesting cocktails, a great wine list and really yummy salads; the nicoise salad was absolutely fabulous.

This restaurant has a wonderful patio and very welcoming and superbly attentive staff - our server had a great sense of humor too, which we really made the evening...

Did we mention desserts? ;-) All home made and absolutely splendid... best chocolate/peanut butter tart and best strawberry ice cream we've ever had anywhere... the pastry chef should be given a michelin star - just superb.... :-)

If you hadn't guessed, we would HIGHLY recommend you visit Cilantro! ;-)

“Nice patio for the rare nice summer evenings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013 via mobile

Last minute reservation.
Nice patio. Took forever to take our food order, but once in, food started flying in.
Food was ok. Mushroom soup seemed like chooped in a blender with the consistency of a sauce, more than a potage.
As for the linguini bolognese, the pasta was more like a bucatini and the sauce was too dry.
Good selection of wine and fairly priced.
Will be back for the patio.

“Worth the walk...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

This was our first time to this restaurant and we enjoyed it immensely. We sat on the patio on a lovely summer evening. The food was great, the service was fantastic and we would definitely go again.

“Perfect Patio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013 via mobile

This is your date night extraordinaire spot if you can get onto the patio. It's expensive but for the most part delicious. One of my friends ordered the pasta special and basically got linguine with a bunch of mace on it - oddly made you want apple pie.
The lobster bisque is OUTSTANDING but they only make it once in awhile so we were phoning to ask when.
Seriously, the patio is so charming.

“Decent restaurant but highly priced.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

This restaurant was good, not great. As far as expensive restaureants go, this is probably one of the better ones in Calgary... but I still expect a lot when I pay a lot, and I wasn't blown away by the food here. Good atmosphere though.
