We chose this place based on what we saw people eating as we walked by. They have a nice outdoor seating area, and it was a beautiful evening. Daniel was a great server and was nice to talk to. I never felt rushed even though I know we took up more of his time than we should have. We were... More

I came in late and ate at the bar. That wasn't an issue as the barman was great and quick with anything I needed. The steak was good but not the best I've had and the sides left some to be desired. Still, it was a good place to eat and I wasn't disappointed, just not sure it lives up... More

We dined here on a Friday night in August, the terrace was full so we sat inside. We really enjoyed our meal, good wine selection & good menu choices. Service was excellent & very knowledgable.

On impulse we stopped by the Belvedere for dinner last week. I especially loved my cocktail--the banana boomer. Both of us ordered a Caesar salad as a starter and it was so huge that next time we will split one. It was DELICIOUS and we will both want it again, just so large that you can easily share. My risotto... More

We usually sit inside but it was a nice day out so we opted for the patio. Shady but this isn't a bad thing. Service is always quite good here and the recommendations are often on point. The foie gras parfait is a special treat!

Not only a good meal but very well presented. Service and attentiveness of the staff was excellent. Not many people were in tonight but the relaxing jazz music in the background just helped the ambience. The weather meant we had to sit inside but the patio area looked inviting.

It was just like being in France but in Calgary. Incredible service, outstanding food and plated to perfection. We didn't quite know what to expect and got the unexpected. The portions were perfect maybe a bit big for us because we didn't get around to ordering desert. We could take our time eating and enjoy our dining experience. Can't wait... More

It was by happenstance that we ended up here. The atmosphere was relaxing, and the decor was beautiful. We tried the filet and catch of the day (scallops). Both meals were delicious. The presentation was artful and it was obvious the chef knows his craft. The owner took the time to chat with us and the chef even came out... More

We visited for Lunch during Big Taste and both had the big taste menu (see photo). The mussels were delicious in a rich creamy citrus saffron sauce. Second course was amazing as well, chicken with Israeli couscous and vegetables and even the vegetables were great. I looove Israeli couscous. Third course was an apple tart which was also amazing....only problem... More
