Service was nice.
Tomahawk steak was very rare. When she explained, will serve as medium, but it was super rare.
Calamari was actually squid. So if you don’t mind please change the name of the menu.

The atmosphere of the dinner was not as good as expected, considering that it spent about $250 for 2 adults. The taste was more excellent than I expected but It was disappointing that the food cooled down quickly.

Another excellent dinner out with the family. Excellent service, even though it was a bit busy for the day and time. Super friendly server! Excellent cocktails. Food was great and when we asked for some finishing salt, we got finishing salt and not just table salt. Impressed!

Dinner before Flames game with clients. I’m always looking for a great place to have dinner before the game that’s close to the Saddledome. While the service was great, the kitchen did not deliver. Two of us ordered the short rib (which was delicious) served on a shredded potato patty. While the other one was borderline burnt, mine was black and should never have been served. You know that burnt toast smell and taste? This was 10x worse. The server said they could do up a new one but I pointed out that with everyone else already served and eating, what would be the point? The kitchens response was also that this was the way it was supposed to be! Calling “bull …”

It would have gone a long way for the kitchen to acknowledge their mistake but instead they’ve guaranteed that I won’t be back with clients for Flames games.

Hello KimMarie, Thank you for your honest review. We apologize that your experience has made you feel like you should not return as it sounds like everything else was enjoyed. We do utilize an open fire oven to cook which does add a char. As always, if our guests are not completely satisfied we are always happy to make things right. We are sorry that we did not have the opportunity to do so for you. We wish you all the best

Service left much to be desired. Kind servers; however simply not attentive. Timing of dishes ordered / served was way off. Took far too long to receive cocktails and our food. Servers were apologetic however that didn’t change the experience. Perhaps an off-night.

I would probably skip the tomahawk steak. Just too over done and definitely not enough for 2 people but had good taste. Definitely pass on the dessert. The Apple crumble was way too big and tasted starchy and just lacked in flavor, also it needed more ice cream. It was the smallest portion ever. Amazing service! Very attentive but I would probably not go again.

Heather was our server and was an absolute delight! Some of the drinks are little unusual. I had the Dark Old Fashioned and it didn't resemble the original drink at all. The food all came out nice and hot. We had the calamari as an appi, which was delicious. For my main I had the tenderloin and it was perhaps the best I've ever had!! This was our first time at the restaurant and I'll certainly be coming back.
