Had a business lunch downtown and my associate decided we should try this place. Service was good, but a bit too much hovering over us. I guess when you are not busy at lunch the staff have to do something. Lots of folks comment on the decor; while important it is not what I taste. On to the food. I... More

This is one of the most beautiful restaurants I've been to without a view. Nice wine list. I had the scallops and short ribs and loved my meal. My husband had the small tenderloin cooked to perfection...lacked a little flavor...but tender. Loved the lemon meringue tart. Service was good.

While being taken here by my fiance for my birthday, this was an excellent choice. Having travelled in over 30 different countries world wide, Fergus was one of the best servers I have ever had. As a professional sommerlier, he was well versed in the entire wine list. He was highly accurate with complementary food and beverages, and made us... More

We passed on our reservations and made our way to the bar area to make some new friends and get a bite to eat. We were early (not used to it staying light until 11PM!!!) as usual compared to the locals and their later dining times and the place was nearly empty and we were thinking oh boy, what have... More

I had a gift card languishing in a drawer so decided to go for lunch. Sat at the bar and was well taken care of. Had the devilled eggs appetizer. Sounds ordinary, but it was totally great presentation and taste. For my main, I had the wagyu beef hamburger. Wow! They actually cooked it the way I wanted -medium rare.... More

We had two birthday celebrations and had been to Rush many years ago and wanted to see the "new and improved" Rush. While they say there is parking available, it is not easy to find. When you do, you have to buzz in to get into the parking (after 5 pm) and then go through quite the maze to get... More

My husband and I were staying 1 night in Calgary and this restaurant, which got very good reviews, was right down the street within walking distance. We first stopped at their bar before heading to our table. My husband ordered a vodka on the rocks. Lots of rocks, very little vodka! Didn't even look like a full shot. My Margarita... More

We booked an evening meal for two, the restaurant reviews appeared positive and it was handy for our hotel. On entering it appeared the majority of customers were business people and the atmosphere was somewhat subdued. One of us enjoyed our meal the other was disappointed perhaps because of a poor choice. However the evening was spoilt for both of... More

This is "THE" place to see and be seen in downtown Calgary. The food is perfectly cooked. The steaks are great, although not at the level of Vintage Chophouse. I had the carb cake as appetizer, and it was moist, perfectly grilled, and tasty. The tenderloin was very tender and the garnish was delicate. Dessert was home made crème Brule,... More

In the middle of nowhere next to the train station in Calgary is a great seafood restaurant with an even better bar. All the top brands, even hard to find brands that are there for your enjoyment. Had four wonderful rums, a half dozen oysters (that were perfectly delicious) and a twice baked potato loaded with lobster...quite unique and to... More
