The food was fresh and local. Rarely do I clear my plate at a restaurant, I did here. The price for food was fair and comparable for the standard served. Our table had a variety of appy's and mains consisted of Elk, pork, steak and a pasta dish. All very declared outstanding. Nice atmosphere, open kitchen. Only downside noted was... More

Our party of four visited Divino for supper recently. Overall, the food and service were outstanding. Great wine list and many options by the glass. The appetizers we ordered were the moules et frites (mussels and fries), apple/pear/endive salad, and the tempura green beans with a hot honey mustard dip. All were excellent but the salad size (especially compared to... More

Divino is a great restaurant in downtown Calgary with a historic setting and perfect for any occasion. We had a dinner with friends and had some cheese selections to whet our appetites. They have a small but very representative selection of cheeses that appeal to any palate. The wine list is also very good. Not exhaustive of every region but... More

The food was pretty good but the service was probably among the worst I've experienced in a long time. We received our drinks and firsts quickly but the plates were empty and our glasses were dry long before our meals showed up. We waited with nothing to eat or drink for nearly 45 minutes. The food was dropped off by... More

I really did not expect much from such a regular-looking bistro, but I have been left in awe after tasting this amazing dish. So savoury and complex in taste, yet light in texture and aromas. This was not cooked, but crafted with talent. You know in cookshows when chefs talk about how perfect cubing must be? Now I get it:... More

This is definitely one of the best and most consistent restaurants in Calgary. The food is always great and they are wonderful in terms of substitutions and/or modifications. The wine list has to be one of the top two in town and the somm is great.

Husband and I were in town for a concert and wanted a great place within walking distance of the hotel and stumbled across this place. I'm not a huge wine drinker, but they also have a full bar and local brews. The waiter was amazing at suggesting cheese and wine pairings, and made great food suggestions. They have a huge... More

I thought the ambiance was quaint and cozy- that is why I choose to eat here. We got a 3 cheese platter, which was fab followed by the onion soup- also very good. But the entrée blew my socks off. You must try the pepper pasta plate (I forget the exact name). It was spicy and sweet and the pork... More

This restaurant is nothing special. The food was ok but not good enough for the price. Ambience was good but also nothing special.
