Great hidden spot

We've eaten here a few times and it's always been really good. Mushroom gnocchi is among the best I've ever had. Service is very good and atmosphere is really cool, uniquely decorated. A bit expensive but worth it overall.

This restaurant was highly recommended by friends. I had the trout and my friend had the special, we enjoyed both. The Sauvignon blanc house wine was not to our liking so there was not a problem changing our order. Our waitress was great. This does not look like a restaurant from the outside so very easy to drive by. Very... More

I have heard great things about Alloy but this was my first visit. The atmosphere is amazing, staff were friendly, fun, yet very knowledgeable. I had the best Lobster Risotto I have ever had. Absolutely a great night at a wonderful restaurant. I will be going back very soon.

Those of us who ordered seafood found it to be a little too fishy/lacking in freshness. Those who stuck with beef found it cooked perfectly. The service was adequate, but the waitress was only interested in refilling the wine, and made no effort to refill water. I have had the pleasure of eating in excellent Calgary restaurants, like Teatro, LeVilla,... More

We went to their 8th anniversary 8 course tasting menu and special dinner and enjoyed it very much. Since everyone was eating the same thing, and it was a bit rushed, kind of had the feel of a work function, but on the other hand cannot complain about the half-price bottles. All 8 courses were very good with a nice... More

I enjoy going to Alloy for lunch or dinner. The food is the best, the service is always excellent, the atmosphere is lovely, you can have a conversation and hear what people are saying, and the wine is divine! I've never been disappointed in all the years I've attended.

We ended our busy work week with perfectly paced, delicious late dinner. The atmosphere was cosmopolitan enough to forget we weren't on vacation. The service from entrance to end was top notch, very attentive and considerate. As to the menu, an incredible wine selection only matched by the delectable food offerings. We highly recommend the braised short ribs, gnochi, and... More

A modern designed restaurant, very good service and good food (needs to improve to be very good). The portions are small, I had the risotto as a starter which was good and the halibut for the main course. the halibut was dry. I ate it thanks to the sauce that was on the plate. Overall GOOD restaurant which with a... More
