The ambience reminds you of a French local restaurant where the patrons are all regulars. I meant this in a complimentary way saying the food is consistently reliable and good.

Three of us came here for dinner on a Friday night and we were surprised that it wsn't very busy. Two of us had been here for the three course lunch before and we liked it so wanted to try out their dinner menu.

Wow, quite the review BBp2013! I saw your birthday post for your daughter and it rang a bell, I was there that night. Not only was it inappropriate to hold a 5 year old's party at a fine dining restaurant, but the "barbie guitar" was disruptive. You said you spent $800 but that was for 16 people. I spent $1000...

One of Calgary's best upscale restaurants. Top notch service, top notch food, top notch wine list. Ideal for special occasions. Prices can get you a bit rattled, so go with some budget to spend, but you won't regret a single thing.

Creative, excellent rack of lamb and very imaginative sides. The room is outstandingly beautiful, with lots of ambiance. It was quiet enough to have a pleasant conversation with my spouse.

We recently celebrated our anniversary at Belvedere and enjoyed a lovely evening. My entree, the lamb, was amazing. My husband had the Beef Wellington and enjoyed it but was not overwhelmed. Our margaritas unfortunately tasted strongly of lime cordial. We had some awesome wine however and the sticky toffee pudding for dessert was delicious.

The Belvedere has a beautiful classic patio that sets it apart from other restaurants on the mall. The menu is very exquisite and the wine list is also unique. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Portions are nicely served and reasonable. The menu is also reflective of Calgary, with lots of local ingredients. The inside area...

Up from Denver for Stampede and was looking for a fantastic meal. We were not disappointed. We started with an Amuse-Bruche of sun dried tomato and bacon from the chef. Next on to an amazing trio of tartare (beef, bison and venison), prepared perfectly. Just the right combination of garlic and herbs. For an entree I chose the Beef Wellington.... More

The French style with creative local and seasonal influence has long made this my favorite restaurant in Calgary. I had another wonderful meal for my birthday, although there was one critical mistake that surprised me. For appetizers we enjoyed the greens, as well as the creative and stunning asparagus and scallops, a very refreshing summer appetizer. I also ordered the... More

My friends and I try out a new restaurant when we meet every month. We picked Belvedere in June 2014. The waiter, Terry, started off with good service, however, as the evening progressed, he got very grumpy and started throwing things at the table instead of serving us!!! While his service was still good durng main course, our attention was... More
