Fantastic Alberta Ribeye with Yukon Gold Mashed potatoes and blistered snap peas flavored with mint followed by Peanut Butter Mocha Ice Cream pie. Absolutely wonderful. Service was as great as the food!

Have had lunch here many times but not dinner. Very quiet on a Sunday night so chose to sit at the bar. Food excellent but even my son was surprised at the price of a rib eye. Pricing much higher for dinner than lunch.

We had a wonderful dinner for a birthday celebration. Nice, quite setting for dinner. Very good service and the meal was excellent. We split a 32 oz. ribeye, cooked to perfection.

Used to love this place. Unfortunately quality has been going down hill. Steaks were burnt, side dishes too salty and service was below average. Way too expensive for the quality and service.

This place serves some of the best steaks in Canada, along with a choice of excellent wines. The service was pretty good too.

All I can say is this is a MUST for any visit to Calgary. In the heart of the city, walking distance to theatres, Calgary Tower, great hotels. And the food is OUTSTANDING.

Great food and service. What can I say Jeremy our waiter was excellent and food just as good. French onion soup and Caesar salad were 1st class then we shared the tenderloin with mushrooms and asparagus and they were this restaurant.

What a delightful meal. I would suggest reservations for both eating areas. We didn’t have one but noticed most tables in the lounge were reserved. We were happily seated in a booth. The service was top notch and extremely helpful. We had a casual meal...More
