Favorite spot while visiting a Calgary.

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... read 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. Service was good and the waitress new the menu well. I had the tuna salad which was excellent. There were a lot of large pieces of... More

I'd wanted to try this place for a while, and I was not disappointed. The atmosphere is warm and romantic, I love a restaurant that is not too brightly lit, and not too loud, so it was perfect for a romantic dinner. My companion and I ordered some wine, and started with the seafood platter appetizer, consisting of smoked sturgeon... More

This restaurant knows how to do it. From service to ambience to quality of food, all aspects are covered. The seafood is cooked perfectly (and you would hope it is if the restaurant specializes in seafood!) and portions were adequate. The waitress made good recommendations on wine pairings with the meal as well. Service was timed well and we never... More

Four diners: two adults, two pre-teens, one who doesn't care for seafood. The server offered meat (ribs) from the sister restaurant next door. Overall, a great experience with delicious food.

Have visited here a few times and never been disappointed. Tonight, quality as usual. The food is always lovely, they do a number of regular fish dishes very well. We shared the salad du jour which was spinach with crab meat and portabella mushroom slices and lightly drizzled with an Oriental dressing. Really tasty. My partner opted for her usual... More

BIG Fish has the best mussels we've ever had! Each piece is big, fat, fresh and very tasty, especially the broth. We love the broth so much that we asked for extra bread just to soak up all those tasty juice. The seafood chowder is full of 'stuff', better than average. The salmon is nicely cooked (although a little bit... More
