We would recommend this resteraunt. The food was exceptionally good. The staff very were friendly and curtious and the service was excellent. I went with my teenage son. We had not booked but we're lucky to get a place over looking the kitchen. We watched the chefs expertly preparing meals for the whole resteraunt. Oysters, Steak Tatar, chicken and so... More

We visited this restaurant on a chef's meal night. That means you paid per person for a predetermined meat - $40 per person. Good idea, but not so good as the meal went along. In addition, the wine was above average in price. The appetizer was good, ut the meal was downhill from there. Beautiful prawns were delivered but their... More

Spent a couple of nights in Calgary on our trip around western canada, and went to Model Milk on one of those. Went for the shared plate of chicken and waffles after the recommendations on here and it did not disappoint - really tasty chicken and a great meal to have between two. Really liked the decor and atmosphere -... More

Great food, service, a fun dining environment as well. The chicken and waffles are a delight, the waffles are very different and taste amazing. Salads, appetizers and dessert will also amaze. Can't say enough about the decor and the desserts, so delicious!

Very poor service. The small plates didn't arrive and the waiter had to confirm with us what we had ordered and what had and had not arrived. Then we waited another hour for the large plates and when we asked where they were we just got a 'they'll be here'. 15 minutes later they weren't. Awful. Food is good but... More

Fabulous food. We ordered everything in a way that we could share among the four of us. With four small plates and three mains, plus three desserts, it was a great meal, we were not hungry, but we were not stuffed. Excellent wine list (not inexpensive, for sure) -- fine choices from B.C. and even Ontario. Colin, our waiter, really... More

This space/room has a great feel and unique atmosphere. The place was packed and we managed to get the last table down by the windows which felt nice and cozy. Not a huge menu but diverse enough choices, which I appreciate as it makes whittling down the options quite easy. Can't remember what my friend had - I had the... More

I have been to Model Milk with friends and on dates with my husband and every single time they impress with their amazing service. The servers have an excellent knowledge and enthusiasm for their extensive wine and drink list. They also have an excellent appreciation for all the hard work that goes on in the kitchen. In fact, Model Milk... More

I have been to Model Milk a few times and always enjoyed my food. The service is casual but attentive and atmosphere is pleasant. The food is just yummy!! This is one of the few places where the food is consistently good. You have to make a reservation if you are visiting on a weekend!

Why am I only giving this place 2 stars? Was the quality of food poor, was the service terrible? No not at all! This place has won awards in the past from the professional critics and foodies and such but I think what these guys ALWAYS miss is the value and portions for places like this. I've been here twice... More
