    Canada’s top 100 list is right. The whole place had a happy, cool vibe to it. The service and food were too notch, we were very impressed with the wine list also. We will definitely be back.

    The food is amazing and the cocktails are even better. We didn't have a window seat, so I wouldn't say the ambiance was particularly special. Where we were sitting you didn't really experience the 40th-floor aspect and otherwise, it's honestly a pretty normal restaurant. Would easily recommend checking it out to enjoy the fantastic food and drink though. The rotini was particularly special in my opinion.

    Great place, great vibe, good food, good service. Loved the ambience. I wish they had turned the light up a little after the sun went down , would made the place look a lot nicer, increased the energy 10 folds. Music play list could have been better. Just a little more light and great songs would have made a huge difference. Overall enjoyed the experience.

    We sat at a table for 2 that was so close to other tables, yet there were many empty tables all around while we were there for our meal. Server was knowledge, but getting our drinks did seem to take awhile. The atmosphere is great & food was amazing!

    Great venue, fantastic view. Music was a little loud. Service was great and they made us feel special. Unfortunately we ordered foods that were a bit heavy and didn’t leave room for dessert. Definitely get a cocktail, sit back and relax.

    This is my second time at Major Tom's for lunch and they did not disappoint. It is an experience - absolutely amazing food, wonderful service and friendly staff, a special ambiance, remarkable views - a 5+ across the board. I brought my sister from Ontario and Jake was our server - She couldn't stop raving about the whole experience. Thanks to everyone at the restaurant! You lived up to the first incredible visit - 5+

    Terribly disappointing for $300 dinnot a dollar dinner date with my wife. Elevator that we boarded to get to the 40th floor had a pile of a pile of cigarette butts bread butts strewn all over the floor , likely a maintenance person unknowingly dropped it. The 1st impressions were that the open concept dining area was completely packed with people and a lot of noise with so much chatter making it very difficult for me to hear my wife speak. There was absolutely no ambience. It felt as if I was in a high school cafeteria packed with kidsAnd a lot of chatter noise. Server did not show up until 10 minutes after being sat down. Water showed up 5 minutes after that. Steak was tougher than expected with little flavour ( Didn't taste any of that special buttery flavor the website talked about), Alberta lamb was Extremely fatty. Bottle of wine showed up 15 minutes into our meal. Coffee showed up 10 minutes after our dessert was almost completely eaten. When I made the reservation I stated that it was a birthday dinner date. The girl in the lobby acknowledged thacknowledge that but there was no mention or acknowledgment at the dinner. Bottom line: For this restaurant to be ranked the top restaurant in Canada. The food was extremely disappointing. Felt totally ripped off!

    View was awesome...food was average for the price. Would have got a lot more somewhere else for that price. Steaks came out cut already (which takes the temperature out as well) ...I can cut my own steak thanks. Ordered Peppercorn sauce and got no peppercorns.....mushrooms were cold.

    Slightly boring menu, but very good quality ingredients and very well executed. Such loud music that everyone spoke very loudly to be heard = too noisy to feel comfortable. A nice mixture of beautiful young things, hockey wives (I suspect), a sprinkling of business types and some oldies like us.

    Overall this was a very disappointing experience. We had booked several months in advance for our wedding anniversary and when we checked in, they gave us well wishes (so they knew this with the booking). We were seated at a table in the dark back corner, and at this point I should have asked to be moved to a window seat, as several were empty- but I figured if they sat us near the back they must have been fully booked. However, much to our disappointment 4 window tables and several others (about 7 or 8) around us went unused for the entirety of our dining. I’m highly disappointed that they didn’t seat us at a window knowing it was for special occasion. It doesn’t make sense they would let so many window seats go unused. When it came time to order, the server was unhelpful and couldn’t offer any suggestions. The first steak my husband tried to order was sold out, so he had to re-choose and the server seemed impatient. When our meals did finally arrive, my husband was very disappointed as we weren’t informed that the steak didn’t come with any accompaniments (I realize this is standard at some steak houses- but the server should have told us). Literally not a single thing on the plate other than some cut up steak. Hmm. Overall, we will not be dining here again. Save your money as there as so many better restaurants in Calgary that treat their customers well.

    Dress code stated as “Dress Casual” but people wearing cutoffs and flip flops didn’t make it feel like a special dinner out. The food is well prepared and delicious, the wine list is amazing. Very noisy room, but we couldn’t hear the conversation beside us so that was a plus!

    So disappointing. Service was slow. Wine was ice cold (our selection was NOT from the Cold Reds section). 30 mins to order. 10-15 mins later we were asked to select a sauce for our main. 10-15 mins after that (55 mins after our reservation time) we were told our main was sold out and we had to reselect.

    Great food for Calgary! We have needed a decent restaurant for years. Skip the lamb or get some sauce on it as others suggest. The major tots were amazing, and the oysters and salads were excellent as well! Was super excited about baked Alaska but it was super super sweet with the meringue and weird jam-like substance in it (try something more authentic fruit and it would be a top dessert!). Service was excellent! Glad to see David the sommelier working there -- top class!! Very interesting that it won Canada's top new restaurant award (food in this country really needs a boost as I'm a bit surprised!) -- it was yummy and waaay better than average Calgary food and definitely a great place to eat!
