First, unwind in the lounge with a martini and soak in the New York atmosphere. Relax in the custom made furniture as you enjoy the view through the Belvedere's two skylights. Then, ready yourself to be amazed at the magic you'll experience amongst the plush draperies, walnut woodwork and discreet lighting as you dine on a menu that can only be described as true "Haute Cuisine". With a menu that is ever changing you can rest assured the ingredients are always fresh and always of the highest quality. With your palate satiated by the perfect pairing of food and your selection from one of our 750 wines served in Riedel Crystal, you'll experience why Awards and reviews have placed The Belvedere as "The Best Restaurant Overall" in Calgary; routinely in the top ten in Canada and for the past fifteen years by the Wine Spectator Magazine as having one of the top wine lists worldwide and recipient of the "Best of Award of Excellence". "The Belvedere" renowned for its exceptional service and deft handling of its accomplished clientele as it is for the wonderfully wrought food. Allow us to show you what fine dining is all about.

Excellent continental fare

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. There is no fancy fusion sauces here, only the traditional and tested menu items. Reasonably priced, good food and... read more

This is the first time I've been to an expensive restaurant and found the food to be remarkably better than mid-range restaurants. I had the beef wellington for $39, and was so sad when I finished. It was a joy to eat - full of flavor, and the beef was very tender. My husband had the bison for $38, and... More

My husband and I had visited the Belverdere many times and always had a good review from a food and service stand point. This last visit after returning home both myself and husband were violently sick. We contacted the owner via email to alert him that maybe it had been the lamb dish we both had eaten since we had...

While the decor is quite nice, especially if sitting under the skylight, the food lacked finesse. Most upscale restaurants have mastered good food and pleasing plating. My colleague's pasta was delivered in a bowl, much like I would do at home. She did appreciate the taste. My pork on the other hand was tough and dry. The service was spot... More

One of the best mid price-range restaurants in downtown Calgary, this establishment will have you thinking that you're in Montreal as the old stones and posh decor are only surpassed by the wide array of highly-original dishes. The Croque-Madame was as good as any I have ever eaten in France. The Bison Burger is delicious, as are all of the... More

We were here for Big Taste Calgary 2014 which was last year, but today out of the blue I received an email for The Belvedere "An Invitation to Fine Dining - Irresistible New Menu" and was curious to see if there were any new reviews. The last time we were here (with my husband and my mom) we had a... More

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. We started with the charcuterie board and our server, Terry, reccommended the small portion and he... More

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.
