delicious food, large portions and friendly staff! My new favourite restaurant! :)
I love seafood so as a family, we decided to try this place based on some of the review. I think it is overprice. My husband ordered the fish taco and could not even taste any fish at all. It was more like a veggie taco. I ordered the lasagna and it was watery. Will not go back. We can go somewhere else for seafood for better quality and price.
Came on the recommendation of a friend - not disappointed- fish was very well cooked -
Enjoyed the evening
The Big Fish has been our favourite go to restaurant for years! Love the menu, the wine selections, the staff, the ambience... it’s the perfect bistro!!!
We love big Fish because we love fish and they do it very well here. Also creativity on the daily specials is always a good find.
Best seafood in the city. Everything was amazing and the service was phenomenal!
Excellent food choices
Celebrated an anniversary at Big Fish & were greeted with 2 glasses of complimentary bubbles...nice touch.
We shared the baked oyster appetizer, I tried the signature Manitoba Walleye entree & my spouse had the feature Seafood Stuffed Pork Tenderloin. Food & service was awesome!
The staff was all exceptionally nice, helpful, and aware of our needs. They really made the experience exceptional. The delicious food was a nice bonus.
The food was served in perfect time, staff were attentive yet distant. The open doors made it breezy. I will be back...again.
I love the decor and the light atmosphere. Manager is friendly and attentive. All the food ordered was fantastic! Went back the next week with visiting family, we loved it so much
I’ve been there before and had a great time. I convinced my husband to come and he had the fish and chips. Fish was burnt and was falling apart. I had the lasagna which was pretty good but not as favourable as some of their other dishes.
Big Fish is an excellent restaurant to visit, especially if you are celebrating something. The food is incredible and the portions are generous--so you get your money's worth. This is a restaurant worth repeating many, many times.
We had a lovely dinner (went with my fiance and mom). Wine prices seemed pretty reasonable. Dishes were surprisingly large portions (I got two meals out of mine). It was nice going on a Monday since they have 2 for 1 oysters on special.
Had heard great things and finally was able to try it. We had crab cakes and the mussels for an appetizer and then the spaghetti special. Everything was seasoned spectacularly and was so delicious. I’ll be back as soon as I can.
Great food and service. The crab cakes were AMAZING!
Fantastic food ans service, if you love fish try this place, enough said :)
Recommend the Lobster Burger
First time for my 2 friends everyone enjoyed their meal.
Always great tasting food and exceptional service. Nice cozy place to enjoy good food & company.
Great food and ambience professional staff many thanks we hope to be back
There was a loud party seated next to us, the dining room area being small already seemed to make the noise amplify. The waitress was very informative, and polite. Seafood chowder was yummy. It’s more cream based and heavier than just a broth. Just the way I like it! Pistachio crusted char was so so so good, I’d pick it a million times over.
The mussels were fabulous. I wish I hadn't shared :)
The food was delicious! The mussels appetizer was glorious! I don’t usually enjoy most seafood, but this was fresh and delicious. The atmosphere was cozy, rustic chic and inviting. Other servers were delightful, knowledgeable and welcoming. Unfortunately, we had a server who barely spoke to us and viewed us with disapproval during each interaction. We were not disorderly and went out of our way to be gracious and complimentary. This will not stop us from visiting this wonderful restaurant again.
Just a very pleasant way to spend our 40th Anniversary. We enjoyed every aspect of the restaurant. The only hard part was deciding what to have. Most definitely, we will be back.
Amazing value. Amazing updates to the space. Our server was exceptional! Thank you.
It has been tooooo long since we ate at Big Fish, and this dinner reminded us of how much we enjoyed the first time we went there. Arctic Char was ideal, as was the seafood chowder. Definitely an earlier return visit is required!
Top notch service and food. Same as always but always unexpected.
Big Fish offers delicious seafood dishes in Calgary. I appreciate their menu- it isn’t a daunting menu with so many options and confusing dishes. The dishes are well crafted with nice favours and seasonings.
Monday’s are buy one get one for oysters. Such a great deal for the freshest oysters in the city.
The fish tacos had a strong fish taste. One piece of fish with the fish and chips was excellent the other was mushy and doughy.
Unfortunately disappointing. We chose Big Fish after hearing great things and noting wonderful reviews. Our service was fair - nothing above and beyond. The restaurant was less than half full and we waited at least 45 minutes for our food to come out. Two plates came out about 5 minutes before the other two. Eggs were very overdone, brioche on one plate was hard and dry. Would not return for brunch.
Great food, Had the Mussels, Id go back just for those still thinking about them. I Like that its not a noisy restaurant. Was able to enjoy a weekend brunch without loud music and hustle. I would go back in a heartbeat.
Was disappointed with the calamari & crab cake but the oyster were awesome. The sauces are well done as well.
Great food, awesome atmosphere and server was super nice
Very nice venue. Our server was really good. We were close to a larger party and asked to be moved. This was done easily and efficiently.
Hi Kathleen, Glad to hear you enjoyed your meal, and thank you for taking the time to leave a review.
Fresh, tasty seafood in a cosy atmosphere. Thanks Big Fish
Haven't been to Big Fish in quite a while so didn't know what to expect. Still a great place! Enjoyed the food very much and the service was fine. - a bit slow but we weren't in a hurry so no complaints and it was pleasant and professional. Server was knowledgable about the menu which helped when we were making our selections. The noise was more noticeable I suppose because it's not a big place (just big fish I guess) but I really wish they'd play something else besides hillbilly music - that got to me.
Hi Dan, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Dining at Big Fish is an experience we want our guests to enjoy, and not feel rushed. Savouring both the food, as well as the company you're dining with is important to us. Glad to hear you enjoyed your meals.
We shared raw oysters and they were really good but the sauces were just okay. We had the fish and chips and I did not like the batter at all. We shared the pecan pie dessert and it was delicious
Been here a few times and have always had a good experience. Great staff although they really should have a no sense policy. Difficult to enjoy your meal when perfume is lingering at your table from staff.
Mussels as expected was wonderful. A bit too salty though.
Artic Char was perfectly cooked. The carrots could have been cooked more.
Seafood pasta, feature entre was great. Seafood with ever bite. Octopus was a nice surprise.
Best seafood in the city. Fresh and flavourful dishes served in a comfortable and casual atmosphere. Daily specials available. Loved the fish and chips,
