My wife and I went here for a celebratory dinner and were thoroughly impressed. Cool atmosphere in a quasi-group setting with a really unique and tasty menu. We both ordered non-alcoholic cocktails (they actually had a pretty decent selection of these) along with deep fried cheese, quail schnitzel, and a salad dish. Our waiter was super attentive to us and... More

I went there with a special friend on a Sunday evening and had the Sunday Supper which has a fixed menu for $40 per guest. Quality of the food was great and in fact the quantity was too much. We both left with doggie bags. Decor is modern and funky, wait staff was great. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Very slow service, not so good and small plates. If you eat like a bird and you dont mind paying extra dollars for nothing then go :)

This was my 2nd visit to model milk and my husbands 4th. Each and every time the food has been amazing! Always well prepared and something new to try. The staff are very well versed with the menu and have always made great suggestions. We are from outside of Calgary and this restaurant is a must stop every time. The... More

Just as the title says, I am glad that I gave Model Milk a second chance. The server and staff were knowledgable and friendly, the food equally inviting. I started with the Calamari (I really enjoy that its not fried). Then we had the crispy prawn rolls. I can not begin to tell you how soft and delicious the brioche... More

Three of us went to Model Milk for a Sunday dinner. The chef's special menu was Italian themed with items like Bruschetta (starter), fried zucchini flowers (starter), spinach salad, pork Milanese (main), scallops (main), a cold potato/artichoke salad (side), and donut holes for desert. Every dish was served family style (e.g., all the pork on one plate) but each party... More

Excited to celebrate my birthday I booked a reservation at Model Milk. Heard great reviews about the restaurant so I was thrilled to check it out. Arrived and were seated. That was the best part. Our waiter seemed in a rush always and annoyed whenever we had questions. We asked questions about menu items and he said the chicken n... More

If you want a fun atmosphere with really excellent food this is the place. They're constantly trying new things and the room is beautiful. Never dissapointed.

I appreciated what each chef and restaurant has to offer but often find the basic skills of GOOD COOKING are lacking in most restaurants in this side of the world. Creativity here is strong, the vibe is great, cocktails and wine selection are solid. Where most of my critique lays is in that the dishes are just half done well.... More
