Alloy has been around for a few years now, and given its odd location, that's impressive. Calgary has become a city with clusters of eateries, and typically when we're looking for a restaurant, we look in those areas. In fact we had been planning to...More

The new winter menu just came into force, so it was time to check it out. Don't worry - the gnocchi is still there, as always. I had the tempura appetizer and pork tacos for my main. Everything was excellent, except that the soft shell...More

I recently travelled to Calgary on business and we enjoyed the fixed menu but I found the food lacking flavour. I had the flour-less chocolate cake for dessert which was rich and delicious but I would suggest they add whipped cream to it to break...More
