The Guild exemplifies a new and exciting take on the finest traditions of butchery, cookery and bar-keeping. The name is inspired by guild halls from the past, which served as a meeting places and secret societies for artists and merchants. Honouring local beef, game and fowl, and utilizing traditional cooking techniques over wood and coal, The Guild chefs are preparing a fitting homage to proud Canadian carnivores.

    Had the Merchant's Sausage. Used to be a great dish, but now not so much. Sausage was overcooked and the mashed potatoes was like the stuff you get in a greasy diner.

    I brought my family here for a birthday because I really enjoy the decor and food. It was a Monday night and we were pretty much the only indoor table. We were sat at a booth directly beside the upper level server station, which had a view of another server station outside. It was confusing why we were given a not so great table when there were so many nicer ones available on the lower level. Because we were so far away, we had to ask someone to get our server 3 times. All of the staff were on the lower level chatting with their backs facing us, as if they'd forgotten we were still there. It was kind of embarrassing, because I had talked this place up a lot to my in-laws that don't dine out often. The food was great and came in a timely manner, but the professionalism was far below the standard I've experienced in the past.

    My husband and I chose to stay in Calgary for three days to celebrate my final year in my 40s. We made reservations online for my actual birthday (September 25th) and showed up early (around 4:45 p.m.) Although it was a gorgeous sunny day, and they had a wonderfully extensive outdoor seating area, I still wanted to experience the inside of the restaurant. My husband and I researched the best of the best places to dine in Calgary and came upon The Guild being reviewed on Tik-Tok. The architecture, ceiling, decor, ambience, dishes, choices of appetizers, and grand downstairs staircase and washrooms were all something to behold. It felt as if we were eating in an old museum. The deviled eggs were to die for, and my husband wanted to kiss the chef as it was the best steak he has ever had at a restaurant. He actually stopped eating and just savoured a bite, and I tell you - that never happens. That being said, the homelessness and addiction right outside the door and all the way down Stephen Avenue just made the experience depressing. There were people sleeping in the middle of the sidewalk (or passed out - not sure). We did not witness any security or organizations that would help these individuals. Not The Guild's fault, but perhaps a deterrent from making a second trip. Edmonton seems to have the same problem downtown, but we usually don't choose to do things downtown in our hometown either. Let's make our two largest cities in Alberta shine people!

    Ate at the Guild for the first time this weekend. Very nice restaurant and great service. My husband had the salmon that he said was excellent. I had the Maple braised short ribs that were good but a bit tough. Took a knife to cut through, I'm used to it so tender it falls apart. Still tasty. Hasd their carrot cake for dessert and UT was delicious! Definitely recommend checking it out!

    I always have a great experience each time I come here. Whether it’s a date night, birthday or business dinner. Great food, drinks and excellent service. Our waitress did a great job of being attentive to us but not overly intrusive. Highly recommend any of the 35 day dry aged steaks, they are phenomenal. Drinks wise, there are great options for everyone’s tastes and preferences.

    The cocktails were amazing and our waitress was very knowledgeable and helped recommend a few drinks to try. We had fillet mignon, ribeye steak, Caesar salad and Brussels sprouts - very expensive all around and underwhelming presentation. The steaks were pretty good, but for the price we’ve had better. The Brussel sprouts were cooked perfectly but were a bit too sweet for our preference. All in all it was a nice night but way too expensive for the food/experience and we probably won’t be back…unless it’s just for cocktails.

    Really wanted the Tomahawk option as I was talking that up to my 2 friends whom just got married. I wanted to treat them to a congratulatory dinner. It was disappointing that it was not available. We did order the porterhouse that was in place, but to me it was not as good as the tomahawk. Service was great: Water was always refilled, waiter was friendly and knowledgeable.

    We didn't order any food, only drinks, but the form wouldn't let me proceed without entering a rating out of 5 for the food. Anyway it's a great bar: friendly service, very good drinks, great happy hour prices, and a nice long 4-hour happy hour. The ambiance is cool, quiet enough for conversation, high ceilings, and a semi-luxurious vibe. We will be back!

    We sat on the patio with our two dogs and the food and service was excellent. The overall ambiance of this place is unique and high end whether your inside or out. One of our favorite places to cocktail or have a nice meal along Stephen Ave. We got to sample a dinner for 2 option that's coming up on their new fall / winter menu and it did not disappoint! And a must try is their $10 smoked old fashioned during happy hour - one of the best I've had.

    Impromptu Monday patio dinner at The Guild turned out to be an amazing evening. Perfect spot, amazing food and exceptional service by Sky. We ordered the baked potato soup to share — amazing flavourful and velvety consistency. Jerk chicken had been recommended by friends and it was spot on. My salmon pot pie was comforting and delicious. We opted for coffees instead of dessert on a hot evening hahaha. Will be back to try out some of the other delectable menu items that we saw being delivered to other tables.

    The calamari was badly fried or just not made to order. I haven't ever seen a mac n cheese pale like the one I had there. It didn't even look like properly baked. The service was okay but the servers seemed to be rushing us to leave when we couldn't finish the food but still chatting without leaving the restaurant. And we also found a lot of flies and their dead bodies near the indoor seating we were put to. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
