My husband and I dined for my birthday and it was excellent. Food was exquisite, staff were attentive and professional - would definitely recommend as I must try.
great service, authentic french restaurant. they import starter bread from France.. that was so delicious and friendly staff. I didn't know the place was so formal. I was looking for casual French restaurant however my friend and myself quite enjoyed it.
The food was exceptional and the service was excellent. Our evening was very special.
Service was great, food was great, ambiance is great, though having the place to ourselves helped a lot. People complaining about the decor just don't appreciate the French aesthetic they've tried to establish. If you're looking for a high class dinner and can pay the high class price, this is a great option.
Our go-to restaurant for special occasions when it is my wife's choice. It isn't cheap but we've never been disappointed.
Birthday dinner. Quite loud as there was a group there.
Very nice meal, service was great. We had the salmon and cod. The Grand Marnier souffle was divine.
We really enjoy French food and this is the prefect place if you are looking for that. Ser vice was great and so was the food. The place was a little dated but we didnt mind that at all, it gives the restaurant character. We really enjoyed our experience and will be back for sure.
Our celebratory dinner was a great experience. Notably, the service was top-notch without being intrusive. The servers worked as a team, and our waiter (André, I think it was, from Bordeaux) was excellent in his recommendations for both wine and food. The ambience was friendly and relaxing. It's not your everyday dining experience, but I highly recommend it for something occasional. We will return.
Brutal all around.
La Chaumière has been a part of the Calgary dining scene for ages and I have only recently returned to it. I was very pleasantly surprised. It is truly fine dining. The restaurant is beautiful. The food is expertly prepared and well thought out and surprisingly reasonably priced, particularly for the quality. I can say the exact same thing about their wine list. The stand-out at this restaurant though, is the service. The waitstaff is interested, experienced, professional and very happy to be practicing their craft on such a deserving institution. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Service was very good and attentative to detail. Food was also very good.
Everything was awesome. The only thing they gave us plates and knives for bread. Even brought the little butter balls but never got the bread which is one of the things my husband really likes.
Amazing as always. Impeccable service. Outstanding food. Joe is simply the best.
Great food but really expensive . Portion smaller than expected. I guess that's the way the French eats.
Absolutely fabulous, great meal and service.
Excellent as usual. Best service in Calgary...by far. It is nice going to a place that has professional wait staff (not students at their night job). Food is always great. Joe & Joseph run a tight ship and it shows. Take advantage of the great prices on the wine menu as well.
Amazing service right from the start. They make you feel like you are leaving the dream literally. Food was excellent and the time that it came out was perfect. Great selection of wine. It is the place to go for a night to remember.
The service and the food was fantastic
A great place for New Years Dinner. Great food, great, staff, lots of parking.. Well worth the price.
We have been to La Chaumiere many times over the years for special occasions and have never been disappointed. The services was impeccable, the food was creative and properly prepared, the wine list is extensive and the ambiance was superb. All in all, an ideal choice for anyone who desires a touch of class for a special evening at a reasonable price at a location where it is possible to actually have a conversation.
Spectacular meal as always. Of our party of 6, 3 had never been there before, so it was an added treat for them. The wine menu is still one of the best in the entire city. Everything lived up to my expectations, always like La Chaumiere for high end special occasions.
Greeted by a friendly jovial Italian gentleman, either the owner or manager. It is a formal dining venue which at times suit me well. The waiting staff were polite and precise without being overly familial. A little longer wait suited to the style. Food preparation was excellent though some dishes suited our taste and others did not, it did not do away with skill in preparation and presentation. We would need to eat there more often to know our preferred dishes. It is very expensive but we can afford to do so occasionally. Quiet atmosphere which permits intimate conversation. Formal dress code, interesting to watch others dressed up. Excellent wine selection. All round pleasant.
I HADN'T BEEN THERE FOR AWHILE AND FORGOT HOW UNIQ;UE IT WAS.. EVERYTHING WAS
Authentic French fine dining
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and we were treated amazing by the staff and the food was to die for. Definitely coming back for our anniversary!
We visit La Chaumiere as often as we can. The staff are professional, courteous and knowledgeable. The food is of superior quality and of sufficient choice to satisfy most. We will definitely return.
The food was amazing and the service was awesome. I also enjoyed the opportunity to speak French with my hosts. Overall a great dinning experience for my family and I. I would not hesitate to recommend.
The service was exceptional and the food was amazing! I would recommend going here!
This is a great restaurant to have a special dinner and quiet conversation with good music.
The service is great as is the food. We all loved it.
Food here is consistently of a very high quality. I have never had a bad food experience at La Chaumiere. Service and attention to detail is above average.
We started with foie gras and escargot- delicious!
Then the lobster bisque - one the best in Calgary.
Followed by a tomato and burratta salad.
Mains were superb- lamb rack and sea bass.
Wine list is extensive and good quality.
La Chaumiere remains one the best restaurants in Calgary for quality fine dining.
Excellent evening couldn't improve on anything - thank you
This restaurant was outstanding, can’t wait to go again.
This place has been on our bucket list for some time now and now that we have been here we will surely return.
La Chaumiere offers a taste of nearly every regional french kitchen in its menu and does it elegantly and masterfully. We started with Salomon tartare that combined provencel traditional cooking methods with modern west coast flavours. The regular menu bison and daily special elk dishes were a rare chance to enjoy true Alsace kitchen flavours that we have yet to find in town. Complimentary molecular cooking whipped cucumber soup and a heavenly crusted house bread completed the meal. A nod also goes to the ever attentive and truly professional staff.
My wife and I have eaten here at least six times. We try to do so whenever we visit Calgary. The tasting menu is wonderful- We had a table in the middle of the large dining room. Normally, that is a no no, but the tables are sufficiently separated to give privacy. Try the souffle --it is superb. Finally, the service was excellent. Not cheap---but worth every penny or loonie or whatever!
Waiters cater to the women ! Extra drinks charged on bill.
An amazing dining experience. Great food, great service, friendly staff.
Really enjoyed our experience. It was our first time there and we celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary! The staff were excellent, personable and made our dining experience special! We will be back! Thank you!
We went there to celebrate an anniversary. The service was impeccable, the wine selection is outstanding, the food was excellent. The entire experience was a very nice beginning to a wonderful evening.
We came here for our wedding anniversary, and it was fantastic. Everything we ate was delicious, and our waiter Milan was lovely and made it special for us. Can't wait to return!
