We were invited for a chefs tasting dinner, and licked our plates clean. The food was outstanding, the service was too.

My daughter, wife and I went to Alloy early in the new year. It was snowing heavily that night but we had made reservations and didn't want to leave the restaurant hanging. I'm glad we went because the food and beverages were so creatively crafted and so tasty, that we forgot about the bad weather. My wife had two salads.... More

I guess when you have to ask the waiter what half the words mean on the menu you expect some pizazz (or maybe I am just uneducated and tacky.). The food really looks good and nicely presented but the flavours were just not memorable. I had a romaine salad which was just okay. I had a fish entree and it... More

During a visit to Calgary my wife and I went to Alloy for a special night out. The decor is impressive and a bit surprising given the location of the restaurant in an industrial area beside railway tracks. Service was efficient and friendly with just the right degree of personal contact so full marks to the primary server (the dishes... More

I came here for lunch and it was fantastic. I had the pork belly starter and the salmon with frites main. The frites seasoned with smokey paprika and had another spice that was just incredible! The pork belly melted in your mouth. Great for lunch!

Beet Carpaccio- was under dressed, under seasoned. The hazelnut vinaigrette was indiscernible but the blue cheese tasted good. It was pretty, great presentation, but flavour wise, average. Duck terrine- OK, nothing to write home about Beef Short rib- (tandoori masala braised . cardamom roasted potatoes & root vegetables yogurt) We both had this entree and we both felt it was... More

First off, the location of the restaurant and the building itself is odd. I feel like I am in some sort of industrial district and the restaurant signage is not great. I drove right by it and had to circle back. The interior of the restaurant, however, is really nice, and consistent with an upscale restaurant. Service was good ---... More

We were two couples out for dinner to catch up on each other's news. Service was very good and the food excellent on this mid-week outing. However, due to the physical nature of the restaurant, a full house results in a noise level that makes conversation difficult. It is obviously a popular eating spot but be cautious if you want...

This restaurant is located in a not very glamourous part of calgary, next to a lumber yard and a tire shop. But the decor is such that once inside one is not aware of the surrounding area. Our server was a particularly attractive and articulate young woman. The service was very good. As the name Alloy implies, this restaurant serves... More
