We went there a few nights ago, and I have lived in Calgary for almost 20 years and didn't even know this place existed. When i pulled into the parking lot and noticed the sign said Cafe, I was skeptical, but I ventured in and I including the people I was with, wee quite amazed. The food was so... read more

We've been to this restaurant several times over the last 3 years - went back last week; something has changed, the menu is different and some very unique items that made this place stand out for us are now gone (the lamb in coffee was my favourite!) Also, the food used to be very unique and fresh tasting - simple... More

We were acknowledged as soon as we walked in the door and our server was very friendly. Even though the place was packed, she always took the time to come and check and chat with us. The Blue House Delight was out of this world and I loved the warm bread. We hadn't been since the new ownership, and it... More

Our family made a reservation for Sunday. I was very surprised and impressed. From the outside it looks rather small and the tiny sign out front. As soon as you walk in the restaurant is way larger with a very warm welcoming atmosphere. The fire place gives a nice warm feel to the place. Jennifer was our Hostess, was very... More

Wonderful meal and service. Coming back very soon. Garden salad was a tasty adventure - not the usual.

I have heard good things about the Blue House for years but the evening of Dec. 11/15 was my first time eating there. Simply one of the best meals I have ever eaten. From the appetizer to dessert everything was excellent. Thank goodness they don't serve baskets of their "bread"! If they did you would have no room for your... More

As a native Calgarian who likes to stay on top of the foodie scene, it is not too often that I come upon a restaurant I had not known about. Hence, this was a great find. Blue House is located in an inconspicuous strip mall just off of Northmount Drive on 19th Street. It is a quaint and cozy, warm... More

I highly recommend going here and have the steak and lobster. Everything was SO tasty, our waitress was great, the ambiance was so nice and the guitarist was simply amazing. the tables were a little close together but you end up not even noticing after a while. There is a reason why it's been around for 30 years!

The food was awful, service was ok, and the prices were a total rip off. We had a groupon and didn't realize we'd have to pay such a high gratuity, our own fault, but a total waste of money too. The meats that we tried were so bland and very chewy, nothing was tasty. The soup was $10 and too... More

The menu says they're famous for the Blue House Delight - and so they should be! Tiger prawns and scallops in a light white wine and mushroom sauce, served with rice and fresh, steamed vegetables. REALLY good!
