“Adequate for a small gathering of friends but not 'high end' dining.”
Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

Booked a midweek lunch here for a group of colleagues. The food was ok but nothing magnificent and not particularly hot when it arrived. The price was reasonable and the location is good for parking. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and the staff are attentive. Being close to Christmas it was very busy. Word of caution; if you have mobility issues, as one of our group did, be advised that the restrooms are down in the basement area and not particularly 'handicap or disable' accessible.

“Very good food and excellent service”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Appies, mains, and deserts were all excellent quality, and the staff quickly brought a special / idiosyncratic supplementary garnish.

“Slightly pricey but excellent tasty food”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We visited the Grille again and were not disappointed. The bread brought was tasty. The ribeye steak was juicy perfectly done even @ Medium well and extremely delicious to the last bite.
The potato side dish was good--they have replaced the potato cake/pastry unfortunately which was much butter.
The desserts sorbets, chocolate tart and creme brule were enjoyed by each of us respectively.

“Worth the search!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

I often stay in Calgary NE and this restaurant came highly recommended by the front staff at Radisson. It is just 4 minutes from the number of hotels/motels in Calgary's well known Motel Village so we headed out instead of visiting our reliable "Earl's". We so enjoyed the experience, we returned the next evening! Their suggestion for wine was spot on and we traded up the food from the previous evening. As one of our dinners was Friday, we bagged a reservation but as we were not back into Calgary until after 9:00pm, we were well past the late evening crowd and the restaurant was only sparsely filled. Prices are to the high end but then, so is the food.

The beef soup was incredible and their pork chop was well worth the late visit. My friend had the steak and their pasta and even though he is now safely back in Toronto, he is still raving. This eatery is worth the small bit of searching it takes to find it.

Hint: It is located right behind The Keg on the Trans Canada Highway

“Overpriced and edible at best”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Went here for supper, as we have had good experience with the one on McLeod trail down south before. This one was the opposite experience. To start off the cutlery had dried food on it, once the waiter took the dirty fork, he never replaced it. We ordered two appetizers, the crab cakes ( which were good, not great ) and the chilli lime chicken tacos ( which were very salty and had hard pieces of who knows what in it ) the crab cakes came in threes, we asked for an extra one, which not worth the $4 extra. My wife had a salad, which again was good but not great, she added scallops, and again,good but not worth the $12 they charged for them. I had the bison burger, it was Luke warm at best, and I have seen bigger patties on a McDonald's hamburger. The burger patty was thin and dry and tasteless, the bun was even drier and the fixings were soggy. The waiter never asked how the food tasted or I would have told him. For the prices they charge, the food and service was quite poor, and it was not busy at all.
