So sad.... I had wanted to come to Model Milk FOREVER..... no parking in the back or out front, super busy. We had a reservation and they sat us on time but we were waiting for a friend to come and our server seemed annoyed with us (I probably would have been too) The food was gross... I ordered .....

I found out about this special event at Model Milk and jumped at the chance for this 5 course dinner. Chef Justin Leboe spoke to the crowd about experiencing many of the dishes and tastes of their regular menu plus a few extras. The scene was set with long tables and we were met with tropical drinks made with Blue... More

I surprised my wife by taking her to the big taste menu. It was $35 each and featured: 1- Beef Tartar- My first time having it so was a bit apprehensive but man was it amazing! Served slightly warm with some amazing aromatics. 2- Calamari- Looked like mac and cheese so was very playful. Flavor was nice but not sure... More

My family and I recently went to Model Milk for dinner and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The food was very delicious...especially the fried chicken & cheese doughnuts! That being said, it is a tad pricey, which I suppose is par for the course for trendy restaurants on 17th. Also, it's definitely not the best place to bring... More

Visited Model Milk on a Sunday evening to celebrate a birthday and had a very enjoyable evening. The restaurant hosts "Sunday Supper" which is a set menu family style event each Sunday night. For 40$ per guest the food just keeps coming. We were fortunate to attend on Spanish Tapas Night. Lots of generous small plates with a nice palate... More

The energy, service, attention to detail and menu rotation have lead us to conclude that no one in Calgary does it better than Justin. We always feel special after dining or appys at the bar and can't wait until we go back.

We have gone to Model Milk on a few occasions now. Our favorite is the Sunday Supper in which you are treated to a set menu and serve yourself from the dishes brought to your table. A few times we weren't impressed by the theme or food items but were pleasantly surprised when we tasted them. Definitely a must try... More

Very rich menu with interesting combinations. Portions were large and meats cooked to perfection. The apple pie was incredible and definitely big enough to share.

This a remodelled dairy. The food is great and is set up to allow sharing of plates. The beef cheek is great. Fried chicken is one of their specialties but be sure to leave room for the apple pie in cheddar cheese crust.

Food was good and well presented but I thought this restaurant offered a limited menu! Don't plan on having multiple food choices; it's not offered here! Exceptionally good wine list! Atmosphere is average! No special ambiance here! Won't return for another meal when there are so many other excellent choices available in this city. Far too expensive for the value... More
