Hey Model Milk. You serve good quality food. Great desserts and drinks. Some of the best service in Calgary. But how have you failed to notice the multiple reviews that criticize you for one thing, and a very easy thing to fix... Too much salt! Like, way too much. Inedible amounts that sting the palate, get plates sent back and... More

If you are craving a burger this is the place to go....handmade burgers from in house ground brisket - topped with ham hock and cheese curds and the usual condiments and the fries -- finger licking good....we arrived without a reservation but they were able to find room for us upstairs. Nice selection of wines by the glass. Good service... More

It's been a year since we've last been to Model Milk and although the food was still good the portions are significantly smaller and the prices have increased. I was disappointed. The food was good....but not sure I'd go back. When you drop that much money on a meal I'd like to leave with a full tummy.

Great service from knowledgeable Andrew. We had incredible drinks that were complex and layered. We shared appies with no pressure to pick a meal. We did not feel rushed out the door. Smaller portions allowed us to try many dishes. All were unique and worth the money. We spent a wonderful night and enjoyed the ambience, concise menu, and incredibly... More

I really was hoping for a fantastic dinner at Model Milk but we left feeling a little poorer without the excitement of "wow what a great meal!". I really love fine dining and have no problems paying good money for great food but that was not the case with Model Milk. A three star rating is average but I'd have... More

My boyfriend and I came here on a whim as we have heard good things about it. We get in right away, greeted with open arms and courtesy. We were seating on the observation deck on the upper level. It was a bar style seating Whig was nice as our neighbors sitting beside us proved to be great company! The... More

This was amazing. We started with the best gin and tonics. The tonic is homemade. The starter were unique and delicious. homemade cheesies and toast filled with Seafood. We shared the Brisket for two. This was the most delicious. I cannot wait to go again.

This is definitely somewhere to try in Calgary, but while it is very "trendy" I don't think it's worth the hype! The plus side, good parking and great service, very attentive servers that know the menu and will definitely make recommendations for you. Be prepared to spend $$$$! The menu is quite eclectic and maybe not for everyone's taste. There... More

This is an excellent restaurant that to my mind is underrated. The food was tasty and very well prepared, not 4 star stuff, but worth much more than the very modest price. The atmosphere is fabulous, the under designed industrial space is a pleasure to be in. It's nice enough to keep the University kids out, but casual enough that... More

Business partners from Texas were in town, and I went there at the recommendation of my boss. It was good, but it's not a meal I'll remember 2 years from now. We had the cheese puffs, crab rolls and tater totts as an apatizer. I had the Broek Acres Pig as a main. It was tasty, but way too rich.... More
