Great Food but on the expensive Side

We took my brother's wedding party to the this restaurant after doing some other events. It was an interesting experience as the wait staff were a little bit cranky and not extremely pleasant. The food was really quite good as I had a salmon that I thought was extremely well cooked but the meal... read more

The food and service are both 5 star. Wine list includes the excellent choices from Open Range. One of my best dining experiences in Calgary

Our friend recommend the Big Fish and it was very good. We ordered from the daily special for our appitizer and it was very good. For the main course we all enjoyed different meals. Each one was delicious! For dessert I shared a Peacan Pie slice and it was out of this world. The servicer was knowledgeable.

Honestly the best seafood chowder I have ever eaten. Just a big bowl of love! It was cooked perfectly - even the shrimp was perfect, not rubbery at all which is impressive in a chowder.

I haven't been to Big Fish for dinner yet but I really enjoy their lunch and brunch. Especially since they've started selling Sidewalk Citizen scones which are divine. They use great quality ingredients and make seafood tasty for someone who is usually a bit skeptical about seafood. Kudos to them for participating in Meal Share too.

Four of us ordered the mussels as an appetizer and I placed an order of them as my main meal - DELICIOUS! Everyone really enjoyed their meals and commented on how fresh the vegetables were and the great flavor in their dishes. It was very busy and at times it was difficult to get the attention of our waiter.

We ate (family of three) at Big Fish on a Saturday night. The menu is wonderful - great variety and some really interesting combinations. My wife had the mussels in green curry which were delicious, our daughter had the clam chowder and I had fresh oysters and the pot au feu, all very tasty. Service was friendly-ish but slow. I'll...

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).
