    The broccoli dish was not well executed. Disappointing. The fried chicken appetizer was delicious! The staff were all very friendly and we enjoyed fabulous service.

    Service ruined the experience, we had about 5 different people helping us after we had to ask to be served. No one offered even water for 15 min when we were seated. Very disappointed, loved the Wednesday room the first time we went but now unfortunately will not be returning

    We were in town from US (CA, AZ, NY) for a conference and lucked into this spot. Host was absolutely delightful and their attention to our group was impeccable. Thematic beverages and delightful plates were fun and satisfying. The value of the meal was amazing, we would have expected to pay more for the experience. Thank you!

    We both had a lovely time. The hostess was amazing as a side note! She had such a bubbly warm personality and really took her time to chat with us and just be really welcoming. Our food was great! Especially the popcorn, we’re coming back for that for sure. The only downside we noted was the drink prices, specifically the cocktails, are much overpriced.. but overall we had a great time and would come back 100%!

    The Wednesday room is quickly becoming one of my go to spots for well made cocktails and delicious unique shared plates. To start, they have got to have some of the most dedicated bartenders to their craft. Even if you order cocktails not on their menu, you can expect it to be one of the best u've had. The basement is where it is at in terms of where you want to be sat. Has a strong late 70/early 80s vibe in the most positive way. While upstairs is just okay in my books. Choosing to sit outside here is a mistake and defeats the purpose of going to the wednesday room

    The food and drinks were good but the price was pretty high for the amount of food you get, and a cocktail was $16.00. The price range was extreme, and there wasn’t much selection in the menu. The service was amazing, and the location is great, I was just disappointed in the serving size and the cost to eat there.

    Probably my favorite bar in Calgary. The atmosphere and the tasty beverages hit the nail on the head and drive it to absolute perfect satisfaction levels. Still haven't tried the food cuz I get distracted by the bars ambience, scene, and incredible drink menu! As far as the value goes, you'll get the best of the best in experience! From servers like Dolan, to the drinks like the Daywalker. The Wednesday Room would be my Everyday Room recommendation for anyone new to the cocktail scene or Calgary!

    The ambience was unique. The drink selection was on par. Food was delicious and fresh. There was NO one there and although this is usually nice it was odd for how busy the other restaurants were around the area. The hostess was not suitable for her position… Just not the right fit. And the server we were her second table ever. She was peasant and sweet. Overall decent and I hope they get more attendees!

    Hosted an international co-op student at The Wednesday Room for a unique dining experience in the heart of downtown Calgary. The decor is SO cool and the seasonal menu changes make it exciting for me to see what's new. Highly recommend for lunch & dinner. Evening cocktails are stellar too!

    Needs some patio love and attention. Despite our reservation the front desk was slow to greet us, slow to table us, and our waiter took a while to come initially. Not a great first impression.

    Service was slow (especially given it was lunch time in the heart of downtown) and waitress was not knowledgeable about the menu (food or drink). I have had much better experiences in the past, but service has declined at this spot.

    Good was excellent, atmosphere was great, loved the decor and the mid century modern style of the downstairs dining area. The only ding was the uneven service but a couple of items were proactively removed from the bill by the restaurant so we appreciated that. Overall it was an excellent experience and I would definitely come again
