We had dinner her last night as part of a birthday celebration. We were a party of 8 people but the restaurant looked more empty than full. The service was great and the food excellent. They do have a big wine list with some nice discounts on the wine on the first page. Everybody at the table liked the food... More

We came here as a large group and were not disappointed in any way. The service was excellent throughout, the surroundings beautiful and the food and wine faultless. I had the scallops to start, duck for main and the most incredible fire and ice dessert. Loved the theatre of it...and the taste!!! Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

We have been several times over past 10 years for special occasions. At first in 2016 it was very impressive for special occasions and worth the price plus location is great if you live in Rocky Ridge. Last time we went was 2013 and noticed it was not up to par. Menu hasn't changed for years. We decided to give... More

We had a chance to drop to the kid of at My Gym on a Friday for a date night. Deciding to avoid the Crowfoot area and our other usual haunts I made a reservation at Bears Den on the casual dinning side. What a great idea that was. My wife and I were greeted by two very pleasant young... More

The ambiance and decor are splendid, the service is excellent, the wine list extensive, and the food very good, but the chairs are extremely uncomfortable. When you sit down, you find that the seat bottom is sagging, and it is quite hard. After spending two or more hours sitting, it is really uncomfortable. Those chairs definitely need updating.

Just outside of Calgary's city limits is a hidden gem of a restaurant. First impressions is very grand. We sat in the dining room and really liked the fact that the tables are large and spaced out enough that you can have a private dining experience. The server (which we had on our last visit about 3 years ago, shows... More

This restaurant is located on the edge of the northwest of Calgary which is no longer "rural" as the city has grown and spread out. The decor is dark and denlike but certainly not gloomy. The staff has great energy and large screen TV's are an interesting mix with the formality of the decor. I had the oysters, a PEI... More

My daughter had a dance competition down the road and we needed a place for supper. We were pleasantly surprised. The wine and beer menu was massive. The food was cooked and presented perfectly. And did I mention the service? Thank you for a memorable meal.

With such high reviews of this place and for the cost of brunch I was expecting a lot more than what we got. This brunch is not much better than something you would get at a lower end hotel. The set up was poorly done. The baked goods were disappointing and the selection was very poor. The waitresses walking around... More

Wish there was a patio at the back of this restaurant overlooking the hills and mountain views! It may then have been worth the $15 I paid for a 6 oz. glass of wine! Too expensive for my liking - hard for me to justify paying so much to eat out. Maybe good for a VERY special occasion?
