Good Food, Only Decent Service

Stopped in on our way out to Banff with my mother and sister. Food was great, the restaurant is lovely, the service was not that amazing. We waited a while before someone came to our table and then felt a bit underserved the entire meal.

Took the hubby here for his birthday because he loves food and it came highly recommended. I made reservations in advance, arrived to a 10 minute wait, complete with horrible service from snobby hostesses that looked like they couldn't wait to be off shift, much less return my smile. At least the bathrooms are amazing. Really, why aren't all restrooms... More

I loved the fact a lot of their menu is cooked over an open fire right in the middle of the restaurant. The food is fantastic and both times that I have visitied this location, I have received an excellent meal and service. Last time I had the chicken. Soo good

It's expensive and everyone loves it but I found it a tad lacking. The food is good but I just find it a bit much. The flavours were maybe just not to my taste, a tad bland where I wanted more and over done where I wanted less, the service was slow and the place is ostentatious. I'd say it... More

We had 11 am reservation for 5, and were promptly seated. I appreciated that we were not rushed to select from the menu. I ordered Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon and Avocado, and was a bit disappointed. The salmon seemed very salty and overpowered the delicate flavour of the avocado. Less salt and some lemon or lime on the avocado... More

In a pervious review of this restaurant, I complained about the loud background music. We were visiting the restaurant this time with a friend from Edmonton, for lunch. I had not mentioned the previous loud music experience, but as soon as we walked in the blare hit us! Our friend immediately said that we wanted a table away from the... More

Nothing wrong with the big guys Kegs, Moxies and Millestones, except that their food is boring! Same steak with garlic smashed potatoes and veggies everywhere. At NOtaBLE you will find lots of creativity at their chef style dishes at reasonable prices. Also great atmosphere. Recommended!

We went to NOtaBLE for Valentine's Day based on recommendations from friends and had to book over a month in advance to get a table. We had high expectations and weren't disappointed. The restaurant itself has a lounge on one side overlooking the open kitchen the dining room (which is actually a couple of separate areas) is comfortable and warm.... More

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - the most outstanding restaurant in Calgary and area by a large margin! Good, service and ambience are all outstanding. Best seats in be house - the rotisserie bar overlooking said rotisserie and the kitchen! This is a cannot miss restaurant if visiting Calgary!

We found the restaurant to have unique items for various tastes on their menu. I went with a seafood appetizer and Bison for the main course. Both courses were prepared well and very tasty. The waitress was helpful in walking us through the menu and answering our various questions on some of the choices. For us it was a little... More
