Upon arrival the place was almost empty. This confused me as I had a hard time getting the reservation. There were a few people sitting outside but it never got busy. The service was very good. The food was good. I enjoyed how they plated it, A for effort. We shared the robust lobster risotto to... read more

My wife and I have been going to Alloy for years and we continue to enjoy the great tastes and textures of their food -- as well as the attention the cooks pay to ensuring dietary restrictions are accommodated. This time, while the food remained at its usual high level, we were disappointed by a costly twist that more and... More

With a reservation, prompt seating and excellent service throughout lunch. This was a business lunch and our server was timely and very respectful of our conversation, which was appreciated. The food was very well presented and quite good. My guest had the gnocchi daily special which he indicated was very tasty albeit over salted. My linguine was good although I... More

Food is extraordinary and the ambiance is stylish yet casual in this gem of a restaurant located in the most unlikely spot. Round banquets for foursomes are private and intimate. Try supping on just the appetizers in order to get a wider sampling of the menu. Highly recommended.

Made a tactical error. Ordered Halibut but could not see the ocean. Dry and boring. The "inspired" owners have not eaten this lately. There is a reason this place is half empty. Crab cakes tastes like grease and canned tuna. My wife's 17 dollar Greek salad was 3 prices of feta and a few tomatoes and peppers beside a pile... More

We were family group of 7 for dinner on a Sunday. Everyone enjoyed most of their meal. Of particular mention is the truffle gnocchi appetizer, the mains lamb chops and the dessert lemon custard. Three of us had the appetizer blue crab cake, but the texture was quite soft and a bit mushy although the flavours were there. Service was... More

Alloy! Wow! I NEVER would have expected a place this good and this cool by turning off of MacLeod Trail. In the middle of what appears to be a warehouse district, there is a place with a massive cool factor, great food and a lively ambiance which reminded me a bit of places I have been in Silicon Valley.

Fabulous decor, a great menu, the beef short rib is to die for. Excellent service! Can see why this restaurant has been on the "best" of Calgary since it opened.

I guess I had high expectations for the food and service ... Lunch with business colleagues/friends where the food just didn't seem that great. I'm feeling disappointed.

My daughter wanted to take to a fine dining restaurant in Calgary on my resent visit. We went to Alloy only to be extremely disappointed. The menu did not have many non-shellfish options as my daughter has food allergies. The chicken was bland and the duck was over salted when we mentioned it they brought a salad also very salty....
