    Loved kale pesto as always. Tagliatelle was sold out but could order the pesto with toripolini which was actually so much better!!!

    What can I say about ‘Ten Foot’ that hadn’t been said. I come here because food tastes actually like the food retains the nutritional value. Most places I find I am eating dead food. Here it is alive and fresh and outstandingly tasteful. I have never had a bad experience. I find the front of house delightful and very helpful. And the kitchen. Well it all seems to matter.

    Ate at Ten Foot Henry last night for date night and sat at the counter at the bar. One of the best dining experiences I’ve had in Calgary. Conor was our bartender and we could not have asked for better service. He was the perfect mix of helpful and attentive while respectful of our space. He had great food and drink recommendations. We shared potatoes, broccolini, Cacio e Pepe, scallops, with coconut cake and butterscotch pudding for dessert. The scallops were so good we ordered a second order and cleaned the bottom of the bowl of the butterscotch pudding. During dessert, Conor introduced us to different Sherrys including manzanilla (meant for dinner with seafood), which we quite enjoyed. Overall an amazing experience and we look forward to going back, hopefully with Conor to help us out again!

    Excellent experience. The server (Lola) was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. I was especially impressed at how she made sure that our dishes came out according to what went well together. Regarding the meal itself, what stood out to me the most is that each dish featured one star ingredient (cabbage, tuna, melon, etc) and in each dish, I could taste exactly that ingredient. The sauces and garnishes were there to enhance and complement it, but never hide it. This tells me that they take pride in the ingredients and are not using heavy extras to hide a lower quality ingredient or errors in cooking technique. I can't wait to go back and try more things.

    One of the greatest restaurants, our go to restaurant when people come to visit. The food is always exceptional and exciting. The Potatoes, Beets, Tomatoes, and the Tagliatelle are our “must have” dishes. You can’t really make a bad decision. The service is always exceptional and the staff are extremely accommodating to manageable dietary restrictions. Reservations are recommended, you can book ahead on Open Table. We would HIGHLY recommend TFH.

    I’m a regular customer at Ten Foot Henry, the food is always amazing and so are the servers although this time the hostess was TERRIBLE!!! I made reservations for 5 but at the last minute I had to bring my 5 years old daughter. When we got there the hostess was not helpful at all, she was rude, uncooperative and she basically forced us to sit in a High table with small children when there were a few low tables available for my party… it was a very distasteful and uncomfortable situation and she didn’t do her best.

    The meal we had at Ten Foot Henry was one of the best meals we’ve ever eaten. Given that we’ve had the great fortune to travel AMD eat out often throughout our lives together, that is really saying something. To start, our server, Jessie, was an absolute delight, who only punctuated the superior dining experience we had at dinner. She was so helpful with our dinner options and steered us in the right direction to just the exact, perfect choices for us. They were: 1) Pickled Melon with Serrano Ham in a spicy, citrus sauce/marinade 2) Cauliflower with Gojuchang spice atop tahini cream sprinkled with green onions 3) Hamachi with grapefruit, fennel and yuzu 4) Seared Scallops in a cilantro purée with jalapeños, crispy tortilla and cucumber. So delicious were all of these, we couldn’t pick a favorite. The four items we ordered were an ample amount of food. Jessie, then suggested dessert and both were fantastic: chocolate and avocado torte (who would have thought to combine chocolate and avocado?) and the butterscotch pudding with caramel sauce and toffee crumble. Suffice it to say that our meal at Ten Foot Henry was totally and utterly memorable and beyond delicious. If you are traveling to Calgary or live in Calgary and want a truly fantastic meal, highlighted by incredible service, run as fast and as hungry as possible to Ten Foot Henry and order everything in the menu. You’re welcome.

    Our brunch reservation was for 11:00 am. - right after they opened. We ordered bacon to share, my friend ordered fried egg on toast. The bacon came first, my friend’s toast arrived a full 15 mins later and my potatoes arrived almost 5 mins after that. My friend’s meal had very little hollandaise on it. If you have food allergies, make sure you express it - the bacon unexpectedly had cheese on it.

    Food had nice flavours and sauces, except pasta too spicy and desert too salty. ( seemed a bit contrived actually) Very friendly and frequent service but made eye contact with mostly one person at the table? Better experience had the dishes been served together and not enough protein for 4. I would go again but not a consensus. Rose wine was delicious BTW!
