I think I can honestly say it was the best dining experience we've ever had. The space is quite small, about 10 or so tables, which made it feel more intimate and allows the servers to have more interaction with you. It was formal and fancy but not pretentious. We went with the 5 course tasting menu which is not... More

We went to the Chef's Table for a special occasion in October. We had a reservation elsewhere and the restaurant called us same day and their kitchen was only serving steak and fries so we called Chef's Table on a whim for a dinner reso. They could only accommodate us at 9pm. My husband explained the situation to the staff... More

For our anniversary this year we decide to get dressed and treat ourselves to a night of fine dining. We were not disappointed with our choice of restaurants. Chef Michel Nop and his staff were wonderful hosts for this open kitchen dining experience. From the time you walk in the doors, until you leave, the service is exceptional. Now to... More

Again, another one of several "modern" higher-end restaurants in Calgary, and I find that my feelings about them are almost inevitably the same - the food is usually good, but not outstanding enough to warrant ever going back, especially when you factor in the $250-300 it will cost you for a couple. The thing about Chef's Table is that it... More

We enjoyed both a late night dessert and breakfast at this lovely, high end restaurant where we stayed. The hotel is a lovely boutique hotel and the restaurant matches the hotel's attention to detail. Selections were limited but first rate. The service was first class and quite accommodating.

Stopped in for appies and wine - absolutely wonderful tartare & foie gras! As a foodie I love watching chefs prep. Next time I'll go on a Wed - half price on all wines!

Cozy and intimate dining experience in a beautiful setting along the river. Very well put together, but its small, so you will need reservations.
