Amazing food. (Tenderloin is lick-your-plate-clean-good!!) Amazing service. (Friendly and attentive while discreet) Amazing atmosphere. (First class, romantic, comfortable) Have never had a bad experience there. A bit more expensive as restaurants go, but worth it.

One of our most memorable meals in Calgary. Absolutely wonderful. Our server let us know they have a new Chef de Cuisine and he is really killing it. Wonderful to see a Calgary favorite still impressing!

Service was slow when empty with no clue how bad it was. They accepted no accountability and were rude when approached.
