Nice place

Great food, really quite different than anywhere else and good prices. A little noisy but the food and staff make up for that...great experience overall.

Had dinner here with friends. Was expecting a great meal given the rave reviews. The appetizer started off well but the quality of the food went down severely from there. I had the lamb and it was extremely tough. As I was unable to chew I I returned it to the kitchen and the chef agreed to was too tough... More

This a chef driven restaurant that consistently produces good meals, great service, and a really good bar. The star is the plate and the surrounding cast of people ho run this restaurant really know what they are doing. Had the burger again and a glass of wine. very few places can cook you a medium rare hamburger in the city.... More

This restaurant put a twist on staple dinners (like fried chicken) and also serves up a nice variety of well thought out entrees. The service was very good, the waiter was knowledgeable and friendly . I can't wait to go back.

We took clients to Model Milk and reserved one of their private rooms. We were greeted by the owner and given a tour of the other private rooms and the restaurants. They offer a really funky 70s rec room for groups. It looked fun. Our meals and the service were world class. Everything was prepared perfectly and the presentation was... More

I've been to Model Milk twice. I definitely want to return. The first time was exquisite and the second excellent. The menu changes periodically and always looks amazing. This is one of my utmost favorites, with Rouge.

We really enjoyed the whole dining experience here. Our waiter was extremely good at his job - personable and funny. We ordered the calamari as a starter. It was warm, with a bit of heat and we loved the pimenton. It was hard to discern the individual flavours, which made it the perfect bite. As a main, we ordered the... More

Strange and wonderful menu, really reasonable prices for the nouveau cuisine that one gets. Try sitting at the kitchen bar, watching the staff create all these delicious treats. I eat here every time I'm in Calgary; not to be missed.

Model Milk seems to have picked up even more steam as a go-to destination for Calgary foodies, so tables on short notice during prime time (700-900p) have been very difficult to get. After getting shut out a couple of times, we finally capitulated and got a mid-week reservation for 500p, just as the restaurant opened. The room has a very... More
