Worth the hype

Great atmosphere and an extensive old school cocktail list. Ordered the crab rolls, which were buttery and delicious and the chicken and waffles. Oh ya, cheat day for sure. The chicken was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Waffles were perfectly sweet. Heard a rumor the chicken and... read more

This was our third time visiting MM, took our daughter their so she could experience the both unique menu that changes constantly and great tasting food. Unfortunately was for the most part mediocre. Absolutely enjoyed the burger, but the fries were both cold and stale like they had been sitting their for sometime, should have sent back. My girl's decided... More

A friend and I decided to check this place out as we had heard good things about it. We were pretty disappointed. We shared 3 of the small plates and a dessert. Nothing was "amazing". Even the dessert which I had high hopes for had disappointing aspects. For the prices and the portion sizes I was be expecting to be... More

Maybe it's because we have eaten at so many different restaurants over the years- except for one other couple my husband and I were by far the oldest diners - that it is really difficult to be impressed with restaurant food. I would have liked to try the fried chicken and waffles but as it is only served as a... More

I'd go back to try out the Sunday Supper, otherwise I wouldn't try it again. Very glad we went with a gift certificate from a friend. The service was average, our server didn't do anything above or beyond the call of duty, and also didn't check on us after the main was served. To tell you the truth getting the... More

After watching this beautiful restaurant for months, I finally managed to visit with a friend and yes it was worth the wait. Food is first class. Fantastic all round, one of my favourites in Calgary. GO, you will be delighted.

Model Milk had been recommended so we thought we'd try it. Let's say the menu was compact - limited choice, service was a bit slow, the beer tepid. I had the trio of pork, it was disappointing, it was more like a smokey German sausage, tender but bland. You would need to eat three courses to feel like your tummy... More

Original menu, terrific presentation and the space is really amazing. Love the noveau country decor. Small portions and a little hipster for my taste. (apparently I'm old) Really enjoyed the dining experience over all. My out of town business guests thouroughly enjoyed the evening. Geoff Lang does a terrific job!
