Was looking for something interesting for a date and stumbled across Blink. We were both presently surprised. We started with the charcuterie which had fantastic flavours and then split the char and strip loin. Excellent meal all around.
Great restaurant in downtown Calgary! Very creative dishes, warm and relaxing atmosphere.
This was some of the best food we have experienced anywhere. We had the halibut and duck and both were outstanding. The octopus appetizer was the most perfectly prepared octopus I have ever had. The staff was amazingly helpful and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Blink.
The food portions were super small for the price
I knew this was a highly recommended restaurant, but myself and 2 friends can't figure out why. The service was fantastic, but the food was definitely not our style.
Very underwhelmed. Way overpriced for food that was unremarkable in every way. Very disappointed.
It was a very pleasant evening out for our anniversary dinner.
Food was beautifully presented but far too salty. Flavors were average and a little boring. Felt that we should have had a more interesting and delicious meal for the price. Service good but not superb. Blasé meal for above average price. Kept thinking we should have kept our original resos for Anju.
Very slow service
Cold main course after a very long pause and staff too busy to notice we had an issue.
Nailed it from beginning to end: delicious well-prepared food, knowledgable service that was neither over the top or nonexistent. As good as I have been to in this city in a while, they should be super proud of themselves.
I had the duck breast and my partner had the halibut. Both were beautifully presented and flavourful, however both were slightly overdone.
Also I did note in my reservation this was a birthday dinner, it would have been nice had birthday wishes been extended.
Overall a lovely restaurant with delicious food. I would recommend it and I’m sure we will be back.
great date night restaurant. good food and wine. quiet quaint atmosphere.
Read great reviews but didn’t feel the restaurant lived up to the reviews. Wouldn’t go back.
Restaurant seemed short staffed and everything took way too long despite being only half full. One of my guests left in frustration. The food and drink was exceptional though and I will be back.
The design of the restaurant made us feel very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Food excellent.
Enjoyed it enough to go twice during our stay in Calgary.
Superb food and wines and excellent service at each visit. Highly recommended!
Nice atmosphere good service, two orders of steak small portions for 30 a plate at best food was a litlle warmer than cold tast was good. Fish and chips chips awesome fish was over cooked and dry. Pickeral was good.
The restraunt was 70 % full. Value at 20% tip was 145 no alcohol desert or coffee. This is the 3rd time i have taken clients here average to below average score. Not the first restraunt with location and ambience,wonder how long they will stay in business.
Food was enjoyable and they did a good job with the salmon and halibut. Tiramisu was a super end to the dinner. This was the third Calgary restaurant we ate at and most expensive. While Blink was nice, we would go to the other two restaurants before returning to Blink.
Great atmosphere, excellent service, food is tasty- even if portions are small ...
This was my first visit to Blink and I was very impressed. Excellent food, service and ambiance. Good location.
It is, however, very pricey so I consider this restaurant as "special occasion spot"
First time at Blink, the service was incredible, the food was so good, the pork belly, octopus, halibut and cheesecake was out of this world. One of the better meals I’ve had.
Still one of the best restaurants in Calgary, top quality food in an elegant and comfortable setting.
Our server was helpful, personable and memorable. The ambience was lovely; we looked out of the front window directly into street where there was outside seating. The food was certainly good though not quite great. Don't skip dessert.
Blink is our go to favourite place when we're downtown. It's so stylish yet understated. Our server Nicole was knowledgeable and a real sweetheart. His nibs had the chicken with a nice glass of Albariño and I had the striploin with a delicious rosé (preceded by a lovely chilled sparkly Raventos); followed by cheesecake and earl grey crème brûlée. Everything was cooked to perfection and we'll hopefully be back again soon. Thanks to all.
Food was very good, however the service of the food based on how quiet the restaurant was, was a little slow.
As always this restaurant never disappoints. The octopus appetizer was truly the highlight of the meal, served with a surprising bite of grapefruit which paired well. The duck was delicious and filling with all of the beautiful vegetables served alongside the perfectly cooked meat. Ensure that you have dined here at least once during your time in Calgary.
Wonderful meal out with friends. All of our meals were awesome.
Fantastic restaurant! Excellent food, beautiful decor and exceptional service! If you are in Calgary and are looking for very good food, and not only steak, this is the place to go for sure! We loved it!
The service was terrible it took 20 minutes to get our drinks and 1 1/2 ours for food. Waiter did not communicate with us and did't acknowledge that we waited so long. Other tables were served much sooner so it was just our server.
Excellent meal, superb service and as always - great conversation
It was good food. Ordered the striploin, sides were delicious and it was done well. The appetizers were a bit small and expensive.
We enjoyed ourselves and most of the food. The service was great.
We sat in the window overlooking the street and it felt like the privacy of a friend's home. Great street action. Everyone enjoyed their meal-the lamb and chicken breast were delicious and the octopus yummy. The servings were very satisfying. The service was excellent without being invasive. All in all a lovely experience that we would all repeat.
Delicious and great atmosphere!
Blink used to be really fantastic but last night it missed the mark. Risotto was underwhelming and the octopus was not very enjoyable. Good wine list though.
It was “ok”. I have no specific complaints. Our service was good. The ambience was “ok”. The food, while good, wasn’t “wow”. Overall, the whole experience was “ok”.
Our last time dining here was one of the best meals we have ever had. Unfortunately, this time was underwhelming to say the least. Maybe we ordered wrong, or there was a different kitchen staff on for the Victoria Day long weekend? The cheese platter was magnificent (as always). I ordered the chicken and it was underseasoned and underwhelming for a $33 entree. The polenta was creamy but relatively flavourless as well.
My wife ordered the halibut and was not impressed with the fish. It was also under seasoned. The only flavor on the dish came from the sauce, which was overpoweringly "fishy" with salt, and not much depth. The service was good, as usual, but the looks on the faces of our server and the manager (who checked on us twice) seemed apologetic.
We WILL be back, but will order something different. I am still eager to try the lamb!
