    The good-Really nice patio and service was decent. But overall, I wasn’t that impressed. Food was just ok. Very salty fondue- I think a stronger cheese would be nicer. My pasta had some nice creative elements but also seemed to have raw/uncooked dough. My sister and I shared the fondue and then ordered our own pastas- mine came out a solid 15 minutes before hers. I guess they assumed we were sharing everything- they probably should have asked because it’s awkward eating when someone else hasn’t received their food. My fork was dirty- had a chunk of old food on it. Staff quickly brought me a new one but obviously it grossed me out. It just seems like this places misses its mark on the finer details- ie paper napkins- while also presenting itself as a fancyish restaurant.

    Unfortunately, the food was quite bland and service wasn’t great. The seating in the covered patio was much too hot with the heaters going full blast and made it very uncomfortable.

    A Calgary institution that I need to put into our rotation more frequently. Service is human, knowledgeable and personable - genuinely entertained and taken care of. The cheese fondue and oysters were a perfect snack over a couple glasses of wine. Fun feature: I asked the server to pick a bourbon based cocktail for me, I was given a muddled blueberry sour - it was delicious, but the coolest part was it was rang in as 'dealer's choice'. They have a menu item that allows for the bartender to bring some creativity to work. I thought that was pretty dope!

    Food was very good but service was very slow. One appetizer was brought out about 20 minutes before the other one. Long wait before the main courses arrived. Our two person table was beside a busy work hallway even though the restaurant wasn't full.

    Your reservation system and requirements to make a reservation would likely not have me go there again. I could understand if they were busy but, when we got there it was empty.

    We went to celebrate a birthday, and had a table in the patio. Ordered a bunch of dishes to share, which was lovely. The food was delicious, and our server was attentive and very nice. The one thing we didn’t like was the noise level which was very high. It may have been a bit quieter on a weeknight (we went on a Saturday night). Overall, a great place with good food, just a little too loud.

    The fine dining experience has definitely decreased. Charcuterie board was okay but the meat selection was pretty bland. Honestly, it was like they bought a salami variety package at the grocery store and plated it. The first table they sat us at was brutal. The second was as well. They didn't want to disrupt their 8pm seating for our lowly 6pm presence. All together, it ensured we drank water and left long before 8pm to have our main course somewhere else. The experience was very disappointing and after being a regular staple in our dating/anniversary life, we'll move on. Maybe Chairman's? We've had a fantastic experience there every time.
