Smaller restaurant located inside a little Inn. The menu is not extensive but what they do they do well. Well laid out and good presentation. Had a delicious brunch there recently! Not a fast-food place so don't expect to pay fast-food prices.

Exquisite, delicious cuisine. Inventive, well presented. Unobtrusive but knowledgable service. What's not to like? We did not have reservations, but they fit us in by seating us in the lounge by the fireplace. Try the albacore tuna salad, the juniper glazed duck or the pork with fennel.

Chef's table accommodates dietary needs such as gluten intolerance and does it without making a big fuss. It's a great place for a relaxing dinner with friends and you can watch the preparations in the kitchen as it is open and visible from the dining room.

I hesitate to write negative reviews because anyone can have an off night. So usually I do not write negative reviews. In this case I make an exception. Chef's Table has a great reputation in Calgary. We had a business dinner, where everything was presented as if this would be a gourmet experience. One person's salmon arrived raw in the... More

There are lots of good reviews of this restaurant. The restaurant is located inside a cozy and elegant boutique hotel. We had a 'Traditional Breakfast' and "Strawberry Mascarpone French Toast". I have to say I probably over expecting their food cause from all of good reviews. I will say it's a good food but not the fantastic one. The French... More

My husband had a bison dish. He loved it. I was not so hungry, so I ordered a salad and a pea shoot / shrimp risotto appetizer. Salad was so... More

on 13 August 2016, my partner and I had an excellent yet pricey dinner perfectly executed. Though the rosé wine was somewhat warm for the first twenty minutes. An affable waiter tried to use salt and ice to expedite the cooling process to no avail. For a restaurant of this magnitude this is an unacceptable faux-pas. Furthermore , our waitress... More
