This is our second time in two weeks paying La Chaumiere a visit because we know how we will miss it when it is gone in June. The food is wonderful, the service is superb. If you haven't been, go before you miss out on this wonderfully classy establishment.

A mixed experience mostly positive. My confit duck was undercooked - the skin fat was not rendered down at all so it was inedible the meat itself was great. That was my only real issue- it was date night so unusually I made no fuss:). My wife's appetizer ( fois gras) and main (steak wagyu) were great and my main (veal) was also good. The service was very professional and the wine selection outstanding. The ambiance was nice - slightly too well lit to be an intimate dinner but not an issue. I will certainly go back but avoid the confit...

First time back in almost 5 years, still a classic, elegant restaurant with excellent food and service.
As it was a quiet night, we were offered a tour of the wine cellar as well. Much enjoyed!

We had a reasonably sized budget to use on a work event for 5 young professional colleagues and spent hours trying to figure out what restaurant in Calgary would fit the bill for expense account/fancy/great food/dining experience. La Chaumiere did not disappoint. A fantastic wine list that runs the gamut, appetizers (or hors d'oeuvres, whatever) to please the whole table, entrees featuring a variety of delicious and well executed staples, and a lovely dessert. We were treated to an assortment of small bites courtesy of the chef, and the service was EXQUISITE. In a city where people are always lusting after new and exciting restaurants, it's great to know that the place that taught me which fork to use when I was in high school can still bring its A-game and provide a truly memorable experience.

Firstly. The fact that this restaurant has its own very large parking lot makes this place a very convenient choice.

The coat check who os also the host was very professional and courteous. Servers were very good. Food was top notch

I think my only 2 complaints is that the lobster bisque soup was nothing great. I always feel restaurants should always ensure there are some sort of lobster chunks inside to show that it was actually made with lobster and make you feel like you are getting your moneys worth. Everything else we chose in the menus was extremely good. The only last complaint I have is that the atmosphere felt old school. You can tell they cater to rich older business persons (and the older generation in general). People coming after work from their high paying executive jobs. You can even over hear them talking business. It felt early 90s with decor. I suppose the positive with this is that you are dealing with a very mature setting. It is quite stiff inside with early 90s decor and table and chairs much like a nice hotel type banquet feel in a way. I'm not saying it needs to look modern at all either. If anything I would recommend it to look more classic with old world touches. But I am sure their clientele who they cater to do not care. I'm more wanting this place to feel more romantic and special for those of us who are taking our wives or gf out for an anniversary or birthday. I would habe rsther it been a bit more dim with nicer candle light rather than a simple twilight candle in a glass with the lights on a bit too bright.

Aside from that eating at this french restaurant was still impressive when judging strictly on good food and service which makes up the majority of the ratings here. I still highly recommend this place to anyone. And perhaps in being to picky. It would be nice to see if anyone agrees with my perspective or not. I will most likely be back again.

A black sedan ride to Hy’s in the Core for drinks, then a black sedan ride to La Chaumiere for a magnificent dinner, “never been there before”. Then the ride home. Great evening and La Chaumiere was the climax.

La Chaumiere is hands (forks!) down our favourite restaurant in Calgary. For the most part because of the service and the staff followed by the delicious food. It is a place to relax and to be able to actually enjoy a conversation over your meal. And Joe just happens to make the best Sidecars!

La Chaumière is the best restaurant in Calgary
Have been going there for many years
Hope to go for many more
One prime virtue is that the waiters leave you alone - are not constantly interrupting with inane questions
Only thing I ask is: NEVER CHANGE

Service was very good. Appetizers ( tuna tartar ) - excellent. Wild mushroom soup - excellent. Suggested wine -excellent and reasonably priced. Main courses were the weak point: duck was chewy , had too much fat and was not very tasty, overall. The deer steak was rubbery, chewy and not very tasty. Seabass was the best choice but still much less of a feast than the arctic char that I had at the La Chaumiere , 2 years ago.

We celebrated my wife’s 70 birthday at La Chaumiere. Since we had celebrated a number of previous special occasions there, we knew what to expect...once again, we were not disappointed. Our friends, who had not been to La Chaumiere before, were as impressed and delighted as we have always been. Service, food, ambiance, all were excellent. It was a memorable evening for all four of us.
