We like the atmosphere of the old dairy history the MM tries to incorporate but we go there for the food. Justin Leboe runs a good kitchen and he changes up the menu so that it is never the same - great for tasting new things but tough on finding old favourites. The changes are to ensure the freshest ingredients... More

We booked a table for the Sunday dinner and were very happy we did. The chef goes out to market that morning and picks fresh local ingredients that inspires him and creates a menu for that day based on those items. Our meal was middle eastern themed and was so delicious. There were many courses and was a bargain at... More

There were many things we loved, the decor, the cool turntable playing albums beside our table and the general atmosphere! The service was great and very knowledgeable! We tried the cheese puffs and they were amazing, the calamari was interesting, it looked like long kraft dinner but it was good too! I had the halibut which was cooked perfectly but... More

I know portion size isn't everything, but if you pay a certain price and you're not full when you leave, you can't love the place. I've been to Model Milk's Sunday tasting menu, and thought that was a great idea. But one of the complaints i had was their portion size were small. For 5 people, not everyone got enough.... More

This is a fun restaurant that is set in a former dairy. We were in Calgary for one night and thankfully made a reservation way in advance, not realizing that this is a busy and popular restaurant. We had a great meal. Waiter and other staff were terrific, and food was inventive and delicious. The table next to us asked... More

Great food, very interesting food, and not too precious either. Excellent, well thought out wine list. And the service was very pleasant, our waiter knew his stuff, answered questions in an engaging, not showy way, and came by often enough to check up on us. One dark spot: We booked online and could only get a table at 5pm on... More

So much to say... My girlfriend & I had the soft shell crab stuffed brioche bun for an appetizer. Oh. My. God. Best morsel of food I have ever put in my mouth, hands down. The wait staff here are incredible, knowledgeable, friendly, and the water service is amazing. The ambiance is great, tons of great energy in the building,... More
