You must go! Great outdoor patio that overlooks 17th Ave. Service is excellent and the food is awesome. The ribs are to die for, the oysters are wonderful, and the carpaccio is like no other!

Summer is short in Calgary and this is a great place to spend the evening during it. The oysters are always fresh and yummy along with a bottle of our favorite Pouilly-Fuisse!

Great spot for a post work drink or evening out with friends or sig other. Fondue is fantastic. Service is exceptional. Atmosphere is sophisticated with waves of stuffiness depending on the night. We keep going back so it definitely a great, consistent dining experience.

Went to join some friends for a glass of wine. They were already having dinner there. Manager met me at the front and wouldn't let me in. Said my friends (who are all high-earning professionals) had "screwed them over" because more people (ie. me) showed up than were accounted for on the reservation. He then says "it can't be like Noah's Ark here". As it was raining outside I asked if I could at least stand inside until I could communicate with my friends that I wouldn't be joining them. But they refused to let me even stand inside! Wow! I didn't know bringing lots of people to a restaurant would be considered "screwing them over". I would have thought that would be considered "good business". What a joke of an establishment! I've never been before and will certainly never go back!

Went to the Living Room right at 5pm when they opened, so needless to say they were not too busy, so the service was great, and our server was very friendly and helpful. We both ended up ordering the swordfish, which was on the "specials" menu. It was fantastic, however the portions were quite small (esp. for the costs), leaving me still feeling hungry after dinner.
I would go back though, as the food and atmosphere were great! Just have to be prepared to spend some $$$.
