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

When we arrived we thought it was in a funny area and the interior was like and old Asian restaurant or something. Our service was terrible, the server was ran... More

My husband and I became sick after eating at thi restaurant. At the end of our evening, we both had to go to the restaurant rest room and had diarrhea. Service was very poor. Our server let our used plates (i had 3 appetizers instead of a main course) pile up around our table. I had bottled sparkling water but... More

Went on recommendation. Disappointed with the food. Why with one of their signature dishes, lamb, do they not use fresh local meat. I asked and the waitress told me it was fresh from Australia!!

After a friend raved about his Alloy experience I thought I'd give it a try. I had been looking forward to eating at Alloy for months (I had specifically chosen it for a celebratory dinner) and so my expectations were possibly inflated. The location was more of a turn-off than I thought it would be (who puts a fancy restaurant... More

We had a great dinner the other night here. 5 out of 5 in the group loved their meal. Lamb chops were perfectly cooked. Portions aren't massive but reasonable combined with an appetizer. Staff was friendly and they have a nice patio on the back.
