A perfect evening

Went to celebrate my 40th. The food was amazing. I had a flavourful steak with perfectly prepared asparagus and some of the best mashed potatoes I had ever eaten. I had to restrain myself from licking the plate. The service was attentive without being intrusive. It was busy, but it is a big... read more

This was the first time we went to this restaurant and we both really enjoyed it. We went on a Thursday evening - the place was quite full and the atmosphere was very lively. Plenty of staff and service was really good. The Signature Caesar is delicious with an interesting and tasty skewer of garnishes. Caesar salad very tasty; cheddar... More

We go here often, for both work and personal. The atmosphere is great and the food is always good. I found the food choices to be unique and very tasty. The service is usually good as well. Be prepared, as it is often busy. But they are pros at getting people in and out in a reasonable timeframe. Especially at... More

We haven't been to Cactus Club since the days of the bad cow print couches and even more bad service. When I walked in the door I was shocked at the transformation this restaurant has gone through since my last visit all those years ago. They had a very nice wine selection, and the menu was quite diverse. The food... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat. Lots of great food choices and drinks. The servers are always very friendly and I find the place is clean. They do take reservations but the latest is 6:00pm. After that they do first come, first serve. The wait can be a bit long on a Friday or Saturday night so... More

We recently returned to Calgary and this year made it to the Cactus Club. We'd stayed near the airport last year and had then considered going to the Cactus Club, but dismissed it as just another "family restaurant" - our loss. Later, we were fortunate enough for friends to suggest we have lunch at the Cactus Club, on English Bay... More

In looking for a decent place to eat near the Calgary airport after an evening arrival, someone recommended the Cactus Club Cafe... since it was reasonably close to the hotel, I ventured over with a couple of traveling companions - and glad we did. Overall, a very nice place to have a dinner - excellent menu, great service and the... More

Went here with a customer at his request. The food was tasty and of good quality. The wait staff was very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

It's a nice place to dine in. Great food and the serving is just enough. Emily did a good job in attending to us. Prices are not bad. My husband likes the venue and will come back again. What an experience!

Now they don't call me picky pallete for nothing! And today I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant! We shared basic stuff, but it executed perfectly- dry ribs, salads, streak and the ravioli bites with prawns! Heavenly!!! But the best part was the service! Elissa---- such great service, more rare then I would like. I'll be checking it out again... More
