One of the best restaurants in Calgary, in Alberta, in Canada, IN THE WORLD. Yup! How can I say this? Well, after working in/visiting over 170 countries and dependent territories, I have a little experience with eating out. This place is well patronized. Gets jam-packed at chow-time. Why? Because it is really that good. The wait-staff is knowledgeable and hard-working.... More

This place was a hit. When we arrived without reservations at supper hour we got lucky and got seated at the bar. It honestly didn't matter where we say because the food was to die for! My husband had the baked oysters, they had chunks of bacon in a cream sauce. Although I don't eat sea food they smelled delicious!... More

Went here after hearing rave reviews. We waited for 10 mins for our table despite having reservations. Cut long story short, I liked the casually dressed, easy going service, the option of having smaller dishes for tasting and the food was decent but not outstanding. I didn't like the lack of intimacy (I was almost sitting on the lap on... More

All of the food was great cooked well and a lot of please by surprises. Truly enjoyed the cauliflower au gratin. Definitely a spot to check out if you are mobile... More

I've eaten at Notable many times and - best worst-kept secret: avoid the lines that build at this popular spot by ordering off their awesome take-out menu! - always had wonderful food. This is casual bistro fare done with great flair. The place is lively, and everyone seems to be having a great time. Which is no surprise - the... More

We had a meeting, so needed to share our attention between the food and the meeting. I had the tuna Nicoise which was excellent- tasty salad with beautifully seared tuna. Our group also had the steelhead- also reported as excellent, and the halibut (apparently less interesting than the meeting). We continued with desserts. My tiramasu with candied orange was nice...

The waitress asked how we knew about the restaurant as this is our first time in Canada as it is out of the centre. I did think "this looks nothing special" when the cab pulled up outside. Thanks to TripAdvisor I made reservations whilst in the UK. The place was buzzing even at 6:30 on a Wednesday and the inside... More

Out of the way, but worth the trip. The food and service is excellent and affordable. Great bar as well. My only complaint is that the tables are very close to each other.

Notables is a very Calgary restaurant - casual atmosphere, good food, friendly service. There were four of us there for a special occasion. The champagne and martini were very good (try their spin on a classic martini). The appetizers were excellent - especially the crispy pork belly with bacon wrapped dates and the tandoori chicken wings. (I ordinarily would not... More

My friends who had dinner here a few times recommended us to this restaurant. We and our friends plus some others came here for brunch. I had the steak & egg (Flatiron), my wife had the "Cobb salad", the friend who had high praise about this place got the duck confit. While my wife's dish is very good, mine is... More
