Great food and amazing service. Lindsay was attentive and personable
The noise from the kitchen upstairs was so loud we could not carry a conversation. The banging of pots, pans and dishes was just unbearable
Service was excellent but food quality was only average (one entree arrived cold).
Our waitress was amazing!!!! We enjoyed the food but would say that the best part of the dinner was the waitress. She was attentive, upbeat and prompt. Thank you for a great evening!!!!
Cilantro’s patio is the best place to be. Always great food and service.
Great experience! Not only was everything perfect, the staff seem to work very well together. Hands down one of my favourite spots in Calgary.
It was a good restaurant tho I was not blown away as wxpected
The only negative was the flies enjoying our outdoor dining experience too.
Always amazing. Best mussels anywhere.
I do not like the white wine list. Please add a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc!
Food was great and came so fast! The staff was super friendly, we sat on the patio which was beautiful. Can’t wait to go back ☺️
The patio was beautiful ! The food was great ! I am celiac and I had a pastas gluten-free dish and it was flavourful - and I didn’t get sick !!!
Amazing food and service. Will be vack
We’ve been many times and be food has always been good...but it was amazing this time around. Great flavor. My only comment was that our server was having an off night. She was knowledgeable and friendly. I truly believe she just distracted. Lots of forgotten items etc.
The staff was knowledgeable, the food was very tasty and well prepared. We had the Bison short ribs and the cod, they were both excellent. The chocolate peanut butter pie is awesome, we shared one piece and it was a perfect end to a great meal.
We went here for our Anniversary dinner & were quite disappointed with the food! My pasta was not cooked enough. We have dined here many times before & seems like it has down hill. Also the wine list was set up strangely and seemed very expensive.
The food was delicious, as was the wine. Our server was lovely and had a good knowledge of the wines. The outdoor patio is delightful and intimate. There is parking in the rear of the building but she sure to register your plate with the restaurant. Worth the drive but certainly not a value play.
The patio was beautiful and very comfortable. The servers came around with blankets for anyone who wanted them. The food was excellent, the servers attentive and professional, and the environment warm and inviting.
A very pleasant haven in an out of the way part of Calgary slightly away from the glittering high rises. The patio is funky and informal with a young easy-going staff, excellent drinks, and an imaginative bistro menu. We liked it a lot and would go back.
Most amazing meal I've had in a very long time! The staff is so personable as well. A must see!
We ordered 2 cocktails at $12 each & at our table of 4 we ALL thought they were terrible & a waste of $. The food is pricey, and although it tasted good it was not a generous portion--we left there hungry.
Cilantros is always a reliable choice: Great Food; Excellent Staff and Wonderful ambiance. I always recommend to friends and family
We wanted to sit on the patio, but the weather didn’t cooperate! But it was lovely!
“Excellent” as always !! The place never changes in that the decor may but the service and food .. the overall ambiance ... is and always has been ...amazing !!
I was surprised that there was confusion over our reservation [ since I had reserved and confirmed via OpenTable ] especially since the restaurant was half empty anyway.
Food was good ( as usual), but I was not impressed with the “very ordinary” service.
Decided to go to Alforno (Teatro Group) for desert and coffee ...
I was a little disappointed; this visit was not as positive as several previous visits had been. I hope this doesn’t indicate an overall decline in service ...
The food was very good and the server;excellent. Made recommendation on wine that we appreciated. We were not rushed and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. the upstairs was quiet and we appreciated being able to talk and hear one another and not the whole rstaurant
What a perfect birthday dinner with friends! Excellent service, excellent cocktails, excellent food, outstanding wine. Oh my, the wine. Thanks to Sommelier Brad Royale the wine was perfectly paired with the food we ordered. Love this place!
Nice pizza oven Not the most creative options Poor crust
Pepper linguine tasteless
This place had gone downhill...
Wont be back
lovely as usual and appreciate the warm reception and customer service . Food was outstanding - one of my favorite eating spots in Calgary
Lovely food above and beyond, service is amazing so attentive. Thank you
Met friends here for outdoor dining. Very good service and food. Thought wine prices by the glass were pricey but by bottle much better. Pizzas are great! Gluten free options were offered which were appreciated. Will definitely return.
Excellent service. We all left dinner hungry after sharing an appetizer & each having our own main meals. Expensive when considering the portion size.
I havent been to Cilantro since the renovation, it looks amazing! I came with my boyfriend and parents for a belated Mothers/Fathers day. Amazing wine list and great cocktails. The food was cooked perfectly. Service was super friendly too
Always enjoy dining at Cilantro.
I had not been to Cilantro in quite some time and wanted to give it a try for a get together with friends. We had booked the patio but unfortunately due to the weather, we had to change our reservation to indoors. The service was great and food very good. We started by sharing the pear and gorgonzola pizza and the buffalo mozzarella. Between the group we had the roasted cauliflower, mussels, tomato and mozzarella salad, and the black pepper linguine. Everything was flavorful and well presented. We will be back.
Our server was great and the food was delicious! Such a cool ambiance and atmosphere. Loved watching our food and drinks being made! Thanks :)
Great patio , food was NOT as good as previous
Enjoyed the meatballs!
Some of the BEST food in the city! Everything we’ve had at Cilantro has been full of flavour and super fresh, we also love the amazing wine selection and super cute patio outside! Perfect for date night but I’d go for any occasion ;)
Always a pleasure going to cilantro. we've been 6-7 times in the last 8 years and it has never disappointed.
