Crispy chicken was a nicely done leg. Not salty. Cultured mushroom risotto had very nice flavor but the cheese made it kind of salty.
We had a very great time at Blink. The food was amazing and the staff very welcoming. We highly recommend this place for any occasion.
Our dinner was delicious and the service was excellent.
Lovely food and great service
My meal was good, but other guests noted that theirs were less so. An example was the scallop appetizer which was a complete disappointment (basically one smaller scallop sliced thinly but costing $20). Others noted that their portions and with the experience for the related cost were also not appropriate. Of the 7 guests, 3 stated openly that they defiantly would not return to Blink.
The atmosphere was good, and the service was good. I had the braised lamb soup as an appetizer and quite enjoyed it. For the main I had the duck breast which was okay, but I would not place it at the level of presentation and flavour suited for the expectation. I would sum my experience up as the evening was good, but I won’t be going back with my wife as I think there are other places that provide a better experience and value for our own personal time.
Can not say enough about this place, my first time visit - will not be my last. Excellent service and divine food.
Disappointing for the price point. Everything we ordered was just very mediocre (two entrees, desert). Ambiance is very nice and the service is good, just felt like a very expensive yet underwhelming dining experience. Won’t be returning.
We were very well looked after. The service was very good. Starter portions are a little small but entrees were satisfying. One of our members had cold food which was sent back to be reheated. The server was very apologetic and prompt at resolving the issue and did not charge us for that entree. All in all, we had a lovely evening at Blink.
We have been here many times.Food is always very good.Very comfortable and not a stuffy atmosphere.
Wonderful food and terrific wine listing for that special event.
I'd never been to Blink before but I'll go again. The service was outstanding, as was the food. The restaurant itself is beautiful. I recommend Blink for a special event or an evening out with someone special.
It was busy to begin with and it took a while to get the initial drinks ordered and on the table. After that....all good. Food was excellent
It was fabulous!!
Excellent food tough just a bit noisy
As always, delicious food and great menu selection. My only gripe is the house sparkling water always tastes dirty... this time was a little special because the waiter was pretending to be really sophisticated and it was coming across as, well, unfriendly. We will still be back though.
The flavours of the food were great but our food came out like warm to cold. My husband just ate his because he was hungry and his was more lukewarm; mine was cold so they remade my veggies - but left me with my chicken to get cold and eat alone and then my veggies came out hot much later (seemed delayed) so I ate veggies on their own. It was just a very discombobulated meal and took away from our experience.
Service deteriorated as it got busy. Our coffee order was forgotten when dessert was served. I wasn't too happy with my entree although dessert was very good.
We had the same items. Their nice aromatic mushroom soup was back likely because their old chef has come back. I have been looking for it for 2 years. Plenty of fresh clams with good spaghetti. Sauce was good but could be a bit less salty. Americano was nicer than usual.
Food was absolutely fantastic. Our server was absolutely horrible. She was incredibly rude, thoughtless and unnecessarily slow. I noted in my reservation that I was entertaining important clients, so her attitude was especially disappointing. Perhaps this why it was easy to get a last-minute reservation on a Saturday evening.
Great service at the table, but two hosts were indifferent and curt.
Pre theatre dining. Very nice. A bit quiet on a Thursday night.
Excellent food, served in a timely manner - nice for quiet lunch meetings.
Perhaps a little pricey, but the steak and fish were wonderful!
Great atmosphere and food, highly recommend
Great food and great service. Good wine list with some decent value.
Best choices from our meal: the arctic Char, risotto & creme Brulé
It was our last night after 10 days traveling in Canada and my son and I agreed that this was the best meal that we had on the trip. My son had chicken, so moist and perfect. I had arctic char and it was delicious. The sauces and sides were perfect too. The server was charming and not too cloying. A+
Food remains superior, ambience is wonderful, server in a big hurry. Disappointed that wine list had no Canadian white wines by the glass and the sole half bottle offering of Canadian white was out of stock. But on balance, we will continue to patronize Blink on our trips thru Calgary.
The tuna appetizer was amazing!
We had an excellent meal at Blink. Lovely ambiance at this location. Both spouse and I had the beef strip loin steak done perfectly Sous vide then seared. Highlight was our waiter, personable and professional. We are visiting Calgary and plan on returning to Blink for another meal before we leave.
First time at the restaurant, food was excellent . Would definitely recommend this restaurant
Great service and even better food and ambience. Highly recommended.
I've been to Blink numerous times in the past and have always had a good experience. This time however, it took over an hour for our meal to arrive, my colleague's meal was actually cold, and the server was very inattentive, reaching across the table the entire meal and never serving one side at a time.
The food and service was absolutely amazing. My only note would be to have a lot of time on your hands as it takes a little longer for the food to come out. Once it does thou you know why you waited. Must try is the pickerel the Flavours are outstanding.
It seemed a little quiet and a little dark for lunch. The waitress (Kelly) was good, but not great.
The food was excellent. The temperature of the restaurant seem a little cold. But that is hard to get right in Calgary in September.
OK experience - not bad, but not great either, especially when you consider the price for each of the entrées. Online menu was different than the menu at the restaurant.
Portions were a bit small for my liking based on the price. Don't mind paying those prices but would have appreciated a. It more food as it was really good just not enough.
We had a fantastic experience. Blink has a really cool vibe with exposed brick walls and cement pillars. The service was great, our meal was delicious, and everything came out quickly. We would highly recommend the duck it was some of the best we’ve ever had!
Was in the middle of a menu change so a couple items were not available anymore. An alternative was suggested, though. Our server was wonderful and recommend a fantastic wine for us. Great dining experience overall. Highly recommended.
An anniversary dinner for my wife and I, and we chose the perfect destination. Other patrons seemed to be small families with adult children, and a couple work dinner parties. Open atmosphere, lots of space between tables, and smooth jazz playing; this was the perfect supper.
We both had fish; halibut, and char, and weren’t disappointed in the least. Great wine pairing sealed the meal, and the evening. I recommend the Manhattan as a starter drink when you’re seated.
