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

I've always wanted to check out Model Milk because it has a reputation within Calgary as being one of the most decadent and fresh restaurants. There is a great selection of appetizers and cocktails to satisfy any critic and with a choice of small and large plate options, you will leave happy. Check this place out. You will not leave...

My wife and I ate at Model Milk a few day ago for my birthday. Other than our appetizers which were fantastic, the rest of the experience was terrible. Things started very well. For our appetizers I had the Chinatown Oyster which was fantastic, and my wife had the salad which was very good. Then we waited, and waited, and... More

This was by far one of he best. Appetizers- had the calamari and bison tartar- loved it. Also had oysters which... More

We went for dinner here on a monday night. Place was pretty full but we were greeted nicely by our waitress. She recommended a good bottle of wine, which we really enjoyed. I had the Tuna as an appetizer which was dull. It tasted after lemon with no seasoning at all. As a maincourse i had the lamb which looked... More

One of my top 5 restaurant in the city. Always have a great experience here. When we were there in January had their Calamari app. Best I've ever had. Service and food is always great. Make a reservation though because this place is always booked

I went recently for my birthday and I was beyond disappointed. I had heard of this restaurant and wanted to try something new. To sum it up: •The service was astoundingly awful. Arrogant, disinterested, and generally poor at managing time. •The food was tasteless and incomplete. The oysters were overpriced and small(Rodney's is far better and equally is not lower... More
