Food was amazing and service was fabulous. Each of the wait staff we encountered was fabulous. They all chatted and engaged while working hard to manage all the tables. The kitchen produced food with flavour that was fresh and tasty. The yam fries are delicious...as is the quesadilla. So good! I would go back again and highly recommend this place. Not cheap but worth the price for the taste of the food, the service and ambience. (Leave the kiddos at home)More

After arriving in Calgary off a long flight from Australia, my husband and I had a very late lunch here and was served Ruth, who was a trainee. I want to thank Ruth for her wonderful service, as we were two very weary tourists and...probably asked a lot of silly questions! Thanks to Ruth's service, she made our dining experience a great start to our Canadian holiday! The food was great too, plus it was reasonably priced!More

I was told it was a 40 minute wait but we were seated in 20 minutes. The atmosphere is great…trendy, romantic. Our server was good and was friendly as well. I ordered a burger with fries, my litmus for the makings of a fine establishment....However, when I received my burger I was disappointed in its presentation. I was not afforded the choice of how I would like my half pounder cooked. I prefer medium rare and it came well done and then some. Others at my table ordered salmon and it too was average. For the ambience and the prices I expected more from the chef.More

Hello, I was staying in NE Calgary near the airport and did not go downtown so cannot answer your question...am sure others who are more familiar with the whole of Calgary can respond to you.
