Awesome find!

Had a terrific lunch here today. It wasn't busy and our server was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The oysters were delicious and fresh, fish tacos were sensational and the seafood hot pot (can't remember the real name) was fantastic. We have found a new favourite!

Interesting location for a very good restaurant. Service was very pleasant, with all staff hitting the finer points. All 3 courses were well presented and flavourful. I would definitely make another visit on my next visit to Calgary.

We were certainly satisfied with the quality and quantity of food. The large fish portions were prepared just so and the accompanying vegetables and sides were equally delicious.

If you like contemporary seafood cuisine then you must put this place on your list of restaurants to visit. On two separate visits (lunch and evening) I found the food is fresh and flavourful. Don't like seafood, then try the dining room next door, called "Open Range". Where you will find good food for the meat lover. They also have... More

After several attempts to reserve at Big Fish, we finally had a chance to eat here on a Friday and we are SO glad we did! As our timing was a bit off - our seafood enchilada which was a lunch dish was accommodated - yay! All the food we ordered were really tasty, delicious, and fresh! Loved my gluten... More

I love Big Fish and have ate here many times while in Calgary. If I lived in Calgary I think I would be eating here every couple weeks. The food is great! I've tried so many things over the last few years but one of my top picks has got to be the seafood chowder. Some other great options are... More

we enjoyed a well prepared and presented dinner prior to our concert downtown. The service was impeccable. We shared mussels that were in a delicious curry sauce absolutely yummy. Pan seared cod and Arctic char were are main courses, they were very, very good, just a tad,too much butter surrounding the fish. The glass of wine we selected with the... More

We had our work Christmas lunch at Big Fish. There we 9 of us -- good food options for everyone (even non-fish/seafood lovers). The service was excellent -- non-rushed and our waiter was patient and well versed with the menu and drink menu. The food was as good as ever. For the majority of my colleagues, this was their first... More

We were a family of four out for a birthday meal. We had 3 appetizers, 3 mains and a dessert. Every dish was superb. The Cortez mussels were outstanding. The Arctic Char with truffle butter was far superior to the Arctic Char we just had at Nash, a new restaurant in town. The seafood pot au feu with saffron was... More

Our work group meet here for our year end celebration. As there was 16 of us, we needed two tables. We came for a 2pm lunch so there were not many other patrons around.
