We tried this place because it was recommended by, "you got to eat here". I am struggling between this place being good and very good. What makes me give it a rating of good is the price. My wife and I had a $100 bill including tip and all we had was water with our meal. I did not think... More

Food was just OK. Way over prized. Staff not very customer service oriented. Location is not the greatest either. All together it was an OK experience.

Looking for a place to go for lunch it Big Fish came to mind. Had a bit of a craving for seafood, and had passed it a few times so we figured why not. I was a little disappointed to learn they were serving brunch and not their usual lunch menu, but we were hungry and decided to make the... More

This restaurant has defined fresh and creative . We started with NZ oysters in kiwi sauce which tickled the tastebuds - expensive - yes - but hey I can't go the heaven with a u-haul so enjoy the moment. My halibut was done perfectly on a bed of wild rice/buckwheat with spaghetti squash fritters which had me wishing for more.... More

We visited BIG Fish after my sister in law saw then featured on 'You've Gotta Eat Here'. We weren't disappointed! An eclectic funky vibe with a great menu. I ordered the pistachio crusted Arctic char & it was amazing, we shared mussels for an appie- no disappointment!! Service was great, music was enjoyable- jazz, Zydeco, added to the atmosphere. Great... More

We had visited Big Fish last year for lunch after seeing it featured on "You Gotta Eat Here". As I remember our lunch was satisfying and worth returning for. Especially impressive was that they had one of our favourite wines from Creston, B.C on the menu. Well, when we returned for a dinner with friends the wine was no longer... More

This is a regular for us for brunch - we love that they take reservations.The brunch items are a little unique - trout is served with one. They serve toasted fresh bread & homemade jam with each meal - both are scrumptious. The daily special is always a sure bet.

Went here late on a Wednesday, arrived around 8pm, the place was still pretty busy. We had an appetizer (shared a plate of deliciously spiced prawns, which I think was on the special menu that night), entree meal each (Seafood pot au feu for me; pan roasted Manitoba Walleye for my companion - both meals were delicious!), and a dessert...

"Unfortunately" it seems that our secret is out. Big Fish is easily one of the best brunch places in Calgary. Skip the line-up at OEB or Diner Deluxe down the street and make a reservation at Big Fish. It is a pricey option in the evening but for brunch it is not significantly more expensive than the popular spots that... More

This restaurant was ok but not ok for these prices. As a seafood place should they not have some crab, muscles and other seafoods? Oysters were perhaps the smallest I've seen anywhere.
