Dinner with colleagues

Been there several times, last one with colleagues. Food is very good as well as the atmosphere. Good selection of wines and beers. I recommend this place.

We booked this restaurant for our Anniversary and are sorry we did. The service was awful and the food was uninspired. For our special night we were seated at the long common table downstairs. The waiter we had did not tell us his name, but is easily recognized: portly, bearded, and ever accompanied by a black cloud of welcome. Moving... More

Just had dinner here. It was the best dining experience of our trip to Canada. Service fantastic, food exquisite. Will recommend to everyone I know. Please ignore negative reviews. This place has nailed it!

A group of us went to Model Milk for NYE and had a pretty good time. I've heard great reviews from others in regards to Model Milk which set my expectations quite high off the top. The ambience is quite interesting and trendy. The tables are quite close together and I wish there were more booths than tables. I would... More

We were warmly greeted. The restaurant was lovely. Many of the specials on the menu and had fresh ingredients with a lovely presentation and great flavor and texture combinations. Our only disappointment was the service was a little slow but they were quite busy. Definitely would come back again !

Our review is consistent with some of the other less than satisfied customers. We came on recommendations for my husband's birthday and found that the start was great but the appetizers came indeed too fast. We waited more than 45 minutes for our main while the tables below were served on time ( we were placed upstairs in a very... More

Been to Model Milk a couple of times. So it seemed like a good bet to take some friends out to Sunday Dinner. Not! We were seated and handed menus. The waiter asked if we knew how Sunday Dinner worked. Did. Before we were even asked if we would like a drink, the 1st of the appetizers, soup, arrived. We... More

Went with some colleagues for dinner. We were seated quickly despite arriving early, which was great. Staff were unpretentious - just genuinely helpful and knowledgeable. Atmosphere is fun - lively, nice mix of eclectic music and would be suitable for more causal/fun work related dinners or definitely for dates and dinners with friends. Food and cocktails were great too. Started... More

I went with two friends on a Sunday for their set menu and I was very pleased! All the dishes were expertly prepared with an innovative spin. For example the mandolin cut broccoli with seaweed, pistachio, side. Gorgeous interior, fantastic service, and creative appealing dishes make Model Milk one of Calgary's best restaurants! Their daily menu is on the higher... More

We had heard a lot of good things about Model Milk and were very excited to try it out, so what better way than to go for an anniversary with the wife, we originally cancelled plans at The Nash in Inglewood to come here, boy was that a mistake.... The Service: We were seated and the waiter was frosty at... More
