Our wine group had a wine and food matching dinner at the Riverside Inn. Each member offered up a wine in advance of the dinner and the Chefs matched their food to our wine. Fantastic experience! These guys know what they are doing. A 2001 Schrader RBS with the Bison was a perect match.

First, the Chef is fabulous and the food was exceptional. The menu is creative and the preparation and plating was outstanding. The apology, the ambiance was awful. I felt like I was sitting in an over lit restaurant at Homewood Suites in Mississauga or New Jersey. The service was adequate but not attentive and certainly not engaging. This Chef is... More

We are not quite foodies, but we know great food when we see and taste it. The food is truly amazing at the Chef's Table. We had dinner on a Tuesday night so we had no waiting but I hear reservations on other nights are recommended and now I know why. We struck up a conversation with a local couple... More

Small restaurant with an open kitchen to watch the professional chefs work. The service was excellent and our meals were delicious.

I counted nine tables in the restaurant. It was very quiet, which I like. The server would explain everything on the plate and knew the menu. We sat next to the kitchen and enjoyed watching the chefs present the plates. They often used tweezers to ensure the food was presented exactly as intended. We had one appetizer, two entrees, two...

We celebrated Christmas brunch at the Kensington Riverside Inn, and were exceptionally impressed with the level of service they provided. One of our party is on a very limited diet at the moment, and the chef and waiter were very helpful and attentive to providing a full meal he could have. All the meals were very well prepared, and attractively... More

Smaller restaurant located inside a little Inn. The menu is not extensive but what they do they do well. Well laid out and good presentation. Had a delicious brunch there recently! Not a fast-food place so don't expect to pay fast-food prices.

Exquisite, delicious cuisine. Inventive, well presented. Unobtrusive but knowledgable service. What's not to like? We did not have reservations, but they fit us in by seating us in the lounge by the fireplace. Try the albacore tuna salad, the juniper glazed duck or the pork with fennel.

Chef's table accommodates dietary needs such as gluten intolerance and does it without making a big fuss. It's a great place for a relaxing dinner with friends and you can watch the preparations in the kitchen as it is open and visible from the dining room.

I hesitate to write negative reviews because anyone can have an off night. So usually I do not write negative reviews. In this case I make an exception. Chef's Table has a great reputation in Calgary. We had a business dinner, where everything was presented as if this would be a gourmet experience. One person's salmon arrived raw in the... More
