High expectations which were not met ...

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... read 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

Calgary has many amazing restaurants but Model Milk is becoming my favourite. With their ever evolving menu, there is always something unique to try. The last time I went, I had the tuna crisp, the calamari and the lamb. I highly recommend all three. Model Milk is definitely somewhere to explore new foods and share with loved ones.

My partner and I had a wonderful meal here recently, in celebration of our third anniversary. I specified when making our reservation that it was an anniversary meal, and the moment we sat down my partner and I were treated to flutes of champagne. It was a wonderful first contact with our server who was attentive, playful and informative without... More

We started the evening with some fantastic cocktails, followed up with some great tapas and a shared main designed for two people. The menu was innovative and the food was served hot and fresh. Our table staff were very attentive and the meal was very reasonably priced. I would not hesitate to return to Model Milk or recommend it to... More

Ordered the sirloin steak, arrived under cooked and so tough it was hard to cut with a steak knife. Chewing it was near impossible. Ordered the trout next and it was served raw, to which I was told it was cooked sous vide and was to be like that. To be fair, the calamari appetizer was amazing and the entrees... More

My boyfriend and I went for Sunday Supper... A unique four course dinner that takes place every Sunday. At $35 per person, it was worth it. I was pretty hungry though, so I was hoping for a little bit more than we got, but hey- it was probably enough! The service was excellent, the decor is perfect & overall it... More

We spent a wonderful night and enjoyed the ambience, concise menu, and incredibly inventive drinks . The starter were unique and delicious. homemade cheesies and toast filled with Seafood. The dessert was also a pleasure we went with apple pie .The service and atmosphere of the place already hooked us even before we had tasted the food.
