Service was slow when empty with no clue how bad it was. They accepted no accountability and were rude when approached.

We went for dinner last night as we had nice dinner experience in the past. My wife had duck breast with a foie gras spring roll. The duck was almost raw and the spring roll almost carbonised. The waiter apologised and replaced the spring roll but in my mind the chef should not send such poorly prepared dish. I had... More

Food was good but the waiter was rude. The service took 4 hours and the waiter was unapologetic. Overall the price was high, and the experience wasn't worth it.

I read how the Living Room was said to have one of the best patios in Calgary - so we checked it out. They were right, the patio is beautiful, but it was a chilly night and we opted to eat inside. Oh well. The setting, atmosphere and style were all wonderful. The service was a bit frenzied. The waiter... More

We really enjoyed the 3-course tasting menu that we got through a Travelzoo deal. You can choose from three different appies, entrees and desserts. We had fondue for a starter and dessert and boy was it fantastic! Make sure you are hungry before you go though! The wine list is long, though a little on the pricey side for our... More

Love the concept - a house turned into an upscale eating establishment. The atmosphere was cozy with some patrons seated at tables with living room-type chairs. My group was at a more traditional table, just as nice. The menu looked terrific, I ordered the salmon. It was just okay. The gelato for dessert was very good. Loved the pistachio gelato... More

We had reservations...and were seated quickly...the host was friendly. We were seated next to a group celebrating something...and they were a bit loud for us...so we asked to be moved to a quieter table...and we were. The group celebrating only got louder as the evening progressed. This is not a problem, as we were moved, the group was not rude... More

I need to give this place three stars only due to the attitude of the host (Cliff, is it?) My husband and I were there with 5 friends. When we arrived we were ignored first for about 5 minutes. We were 6 at first and told Cliff a 7th person might be joining us and he got upset saying the... More

An absurd encounter this evening. We arrived via limo for my husbands birthday. Hoping to have a cocktail before heading home. We were greeted by the hostess who stated to us that she would check on availability of a table for six ( we had just come from dinner at vin room which was great). She never came back but... More
