We went to Alloy for a ladies' night - it is a funky place, loved the cocktails, and the food was amazing. It is expensive, so save it for a special occasion or a fun night out with friends when you're ready to spoil yourself a bit!

Alloy is a modern decor, hip restaurant bar. Our most recent visit in July surprised us because the usually packed, lively restaurant was a bit quiet-maybe because it was during STAMPEDE. Reception is pleasant and efficient. Wine and table services are friendly and knowledgeable, and the food is of high quality- delicious and well presented. Overall, Alloy is on our... More

What a fantastic experience. Took my wife for her birthday here. It's located in an unassuming location off MacLeod Trail, the ambiance is 50's with a bit of a Mad Men vibe. We were seated in one of the beautiful booths, with comfortable seats. We started out with some drinks, wife ordered the Trophy Wife and I ordered the Amarillo... More

I had heard and read about Alloy for years but never made it. For our 9th anniversary we made reservations and we are very glad we did. We missed the turnoff, its very unassuming, even as you walk up to the doors. But once you enter, its a different place. We sat outside next to the water feature and huge... More

Alloy has finally achieved perfection. Everything was great. I had the tasting menu - the ceviche, the scallop and the pork tenderloin were all perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. My better half had the tomato soup, tuna tataki and the gnocchi and it was excellent. The almond cake and tiramisu desserts were great as well, and the service top notch.

Just amazing. Maybe this place is my style, but I think Alloy is one of Calgary's gems. Located strangely but appealingly in an industrial area, it's got an original atmosphere, great service and to-die-for food. Have been twice and will go many more times -- when I can afford it...

We had the Cornish Game Hens, with the Tempura Lobster to start. We shared the no flour chocolate cake and the vanilla cream pudding. All were amazing. We have been there many times and Alloy is consistent. It never disappoints.
