For my wife's birthday, my adult daughter searched for a new restaurant where we could enjoy some time celebrating our lives together. She did well! Alloy delivered on all fronts - lots of parking, quiet location, pleasing wine list, balanced menu, excellent presentation and attentive service. We will be back!

I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday and we had a large group so I can't say what a more intimate experience would be like. We loved the way the restaurant looked and the atmosphere, very chic. No complaints on the meal, pricing was on point. I would return here indeed. The food was very good.

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
