Great food and menu - service okay

My husband and I decided to try BIG Fish in the NE. It is a quaint place with closely arranged little tables and friendly servers. My husband ordered the soft shell crab sandwich with healthy brown bread and organic tomatoes. I tried a bite along with his hash browns. Both were pretty tasty. He said his coffee was good and...

Great food and atmosphere! The meals were well portioned and the service was superb throughout the meal. We sampled the Mussels as well as the pistachio crusted Arctic Char and the Grunard (white fish from New Zealand).

We had been thinking about dining here for some time. Why did we wait so long? An early (6:30) Friday reservation allowed us a relatively quiet (place was about half full) leisurely meal. There is great jazz/soul music playing which adds much to the atmosphere, which is casual. The others had: Arctic Char and Halibut (special of the day), and... More

Friendly service, great cocktails and amazing seafood. We had the green curry mussels and raw oysters to start. Both were fresh and delicious. For an entree, we shared the Lamb & Lobster burger that was featured on You Gotta Eat Here. Maybe it was an off day, but the burger was not great. It was greasy and the lamb had... More

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
