Second time I have come to Calgary on business and dined here. Both times, great. Lively spot, but my table for one was well served and I was made to feel comfortable. Tuna carpaccio delicious, as were scallops and prawns. A treat.

We where looking forward to this restaurant and when we showed up got seated by a very nice person and that's where the good times stopped rolling. The server came over after 15 minutes of just sitting there and it was not that busy. Dirty...More
