I took my friend here for a birthday lunch. The room is quite lovely, a good size and a good feel to it. The server was very pleasant and most accommodating. She recommended the pistachio crusted Arctic Char and they were very flexible and served it with plenty of delicious vegetables, as I requested. The Char was cooked perfectly and was very succulent and tasty.
Hi Kaye, Thanks for visiting us at Big Fish. Again, Happy Birthday to your friend and we hope she had a wonderful day! The Arctic Char is always a customer favourite. We appreciate your review and look forward to having you both back again. - Big Fish Team
food was excellent - exactly what we were looking for. service was attentive, but not overbearing. excellent value for the $$

Hello, Thank you for the review! Happy Birthday to one celebrating! We hope that you are able to come back again for future occassions. - Big Fish Team
Enjoyed a couple martinis (Lemon Drop and Vesper) which were fantastic. Two appetizers (crab cakes and lobster/crab artichoke dip) which were both excellent. Could have easily ordered another lobster/crab artichoke dip, was extremely tasty. Two mains were great (fish tacos and fish&chips). Mains were well portioned, larger portions though.
Server was great.
Music level fluctuated (seemed to be with different songs) and was a tiny bit loud at some points. Not that it affected the meal in any way, was just noticeably louder at some points.
Hi RobS, Thanks for the feedback and review! We are very happy to know you enjoyed both the food and drinks. The dip is one of our favourites in house as well. We will take a look into our music and see if there is a way to standardize our sound levels. Feel free to stop by again! Regards, Big Fish Team
Great little place, if you want seafood in Calgary, this is the place.
Hi CJcj, Thanks for coming out to Big Fish! We appreciate the review. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and we look forward to seeing you again. - Big Fish Team
We regrettfully made reservations @ Big Fish for a Valentine's celebration! ... which dining experience, as well as atmosphere & service was mediocre - at best! ... & certainly not what we were expecting for a special occasion. From the very start, the hand peeled shrimp appetizer were tiny, tasteless (unseasoned), still partly-frozen crystals remaining (obviously from water thawing) & served with a low quality bottled cocktail sauce (which I can buy better @ grocery store) ... & dinner didn't improve from there - I needn't say anything more!
Hi LorieA, Thank you for the feedback. We apologize that the experience was not what you had expected. We understand how disappointed you may have been. We can assure you that quality and service is of the upmost importance to us and that our 4 chili cocktail sauce is made in house from scratch. If you would like to discuss this matter further, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com. Regards, Big Fish Team
Fantastic service with a perfectly cooked meal
Hi, Thank you for the review! We are glad to hear you had an enjoyable experience!
Good food. Fair price
Hi, Thank you for the review! We hope to see you again!
Hi, Thank you for the review! We hope to see you again!
Excellent food, nice ambience, good service, nice music, soft enough not to drown conversation. A rare gem
Everything was great other than the table next to us letting there 4 year old wander around the restaraunt and 6 year old watch Netflix on a cell phone with the volume up. I know it's awkward for the staff to have to tell them to be respectful, but I shouldn't have to either. Which I did after the staff ignoring it for 45 minutes
Since I did the reservation I mentioned was a bday dinner, however, the waitress forgot to bring the cake with the candle. We waited for 20 min and then she said had forgotten. Also, there was a couple absolutely annoyed because my 3-year-old was playing ... it’s a family friendly restaurant and they should know it!
Food is great but service was not good enough a special day :-(
Great service and good food. I would definitely go back again
Stopped in for brunch on Saturday morning. Waiter was very friendly and food was delicious. Glad we came.
Great as always!
Very tasty appetizers and main courses. Great value for delicious food! Nice little spot in the heart of the city
Very good service and food. The restaurant was very cozy and elegant. Had 4 kinds of raw oysters and the fish tacos that were excellent. Waitresses were exceptional.
Great food and a wonderful place for a date!
As always, Big Fish was an extremely enjoyable and social time. The food, excellent. I have had Christina as my server each time I have dined at Big Fish. She is exceptionally professional, attentive, and my favourite.
It was slower then usual
And extremely loud
I’ve been eating here for years and it never disappoints.
The baked oysters were absolutely marvellous. Lobster poutine was interesting. Great sauce.
Sadly, crab cakes were not quite as wonderful as last year. A little dry and overdone.
But, as my mother said, the baked oyster sauce more than made up for it. Wonderful. Looking forward to coming back to Big Fish whenever we can.
Food was average and overpriced. Service was great. Restaurant is decently decorated but nothing special. Overall, overrated for the cost and quality of the dishes.
Very good, health food choices available
I had been to Big Fish for dinner but not lunch. I suggested this place to my friends for a get together. The food and service was great. The food was a little slow especially since there were only a few tables. I will definitely be back to try other items on the menu.
It was our daughters Birthday. It was very good but very expensive. We would go back.
Great experience as usual. Friendly knowledgeable staff, great ambiance.
We love Big Fish. Our favourite night is Monday, when it is two-for-one oyster night. The menu has options for everyone. The food is always fresh and well prepared. Service is attentive and helpful without being intrusive. Highly recommend!
We were greeted in a friendly manner, and there was no problem with our chatting "endlessly".
Great atmosphere and food! Will definitely be back when I’m in Calgary again!
Excellent service! The arctic char is amazing and that bourbon pecan praline pie....so yummy!
great place to eat. Wonderful food. comfy chairs. good wine selection. Wonderful oysters on the half shell.
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Delicious food - loved the selection of oyster our server chose for us! Our ‘mains’ were amazing! Can’t wait to go back.
We had a lovely lunch at Big Fish. We hadn't been there for a long time, and we were treating a friend, so hoped it would be good and it didn't disappoint. Our server was friendly and knowledgable about the menu. We didn't feel rushed at all and yet when we did finally order, our food came out quite promptly. Everything was fresh and tasty. We had the calamari, the fish and chips, the seafood enchiladas and the curry on offer that day. Wonderful. We will definitely return :-)
Love Big Fish! Food is excellent and never disappoints and our server was lovely!
The fish tacos were gross and the sauce that came with the shrimp bucket was kind of weird.
LOVED the pot au feu. Everything else was delicious, too...as we've come to expect from Big Fish.
