4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014 NEW

This is a very popular spot so reservations are recommended. The maître d'hôtel put on a bit of a faux francais greeting but all went smoothly. The décor, as is typical of a bistro, is quite modest and the seating gives a very cosy feel. As a small appetizer, the merguez is a must. The lamb we tried was excellent,... More

Tried to book a reservation but they said don't worry, we'll sit you at the bar because it is first come first serve. We head down immediately and are told the bar is now reserved so no seats. We were very upset and when I consider my past dinners and lunches there, they weren't all that special so I really... More

Got spoiled with a gift certificate to this lovely restaurant- were able to get seats at the bar on a busy Saturday night without reservations, served by the very attentive bartender who clearly is passionate about food and knows his beautiful wine list inside and out. We enjoyed the cheese and charcuterie platters, I had the best steak and what... More

I adore France and to be honest, was sceptical to try this 'French' bistro. WOW!! It is the real deal! French owners, French chefs, French music and AMAZING French food. We arrived early for a reservation and were quickly greeted and offered drinks. I hinted to the hostess to seat us at an empty table, but it was for four... More

This is an awkward restaurant. Arriving early, we had to sit in the window until the appointed time despite there being empty tables! How odd! We became skeptical, wondering whether we had made the right choice of restaurants. We should have walked because the food was a big disappointment. The charcuterie plate with an abundance of sliced salami and ham... More

After visiting Cassis Bistro last night for the first time, I was saddened that it has taken so long to enjoy this excellent French style bistro. Also saddened that I don't know more than three or so words of French, if only to make the experience that much more authentic? The reputation of Cassis as one of Calgary's best restaurants... More

I heard about this place and couldn't wait to try it. My daughter and I are foodies, booked a table for 2, showed up on time and was seated immediately. The service people were warm, friendly? NO but I moved on. We ordered drinks, appetizers (3), main dishes and desserts. Paid handsomely and enjoyed most of the food. Did it... More

I love the variety of the menu and the changing daily specials. I haven't found French cuisine this good anywhere else in the city. And there's always a great atmosphere lunch, brunch, or dinner. Nice wine list and a nice little bar area if you're just in for a drink. Only complaint is that it isn't a bit bigger as... More
