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.
excellent food using quality ingredients. good interior design with nice flower arrangements and paintings. (and Christmas decoration) would like to come back in other seasons, too.
Food was great. Service was terrible.
The food was great, the service was great, the prices for food was a little high, very Comfortable. Nice experience, would go again.
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.
An amazingly wonderful dining experience. Ambience, service, food and wine were absolutely outstanding.
I took someone special for a romantic dinner. The service was fantastic as well as the food. I found the value at this restaurant was far better than comparable places in Calgary.
We were so looking forward to returning to the restaurant after several years but we’re left disappointed. Our food came out barely warm and then took close to 20 minutes to get back into queue and a new order delivered. Better to wait than simply microwaving it though. Staff was apologetic and comp’d our meal but we went for a dining delight not free food. Restaurant was busy when we were there but that’s a booking/staffing issue not an excuse.
Open Table asked if the reservation was for a special occasion, I responded 'birthday', but it appears this information was not passed on to the restaurant.
The restaurant is one of the best kept secrets in town; the mark-ups on food & wine are both some of the lowest & they have serving staff who are professionals & take pride in their work. Some of them have been there for years.
Having just returned from Paris, we were excited to dine here and extend our holiday in a virtual way. We couldn’t be happier with the way our evening went. Amazing food, perfect service and overall, a “French” experience that is unequaled in Calgary.
Thank you to everyone there for making our evening so perfect.
Service was fantastic and the food was amazing. Thank you for a great evwning
Food and service are always outstanding at La Chaumiere. Really good wine list with wide variety of options and price points. The atmosphere is classic not trendy. Consistently delivers fabulous meals.
Incredible meals all around. Service was outstanding. We will be going back.
As always the food is outstanding and the service is excellent.
What a wonderful evening! I met a friend for supper and we had a relaxed evening of fabulous food, delicious wine and great conversation! The lobster bisque was prepared table side and the delicious aroma was only exceeded by the taste. Our fish was cooked to perfection and every detail of the meal and the evening was outstanding. We wanted some help selecting wine and we were directed to a very reasonably priced delicious bottle of wine. The service was attentive but relaxed. We had a lot of catching up to do and were never rushed off the table. I’ll be returning to La Chaumiere soon!
Great food, wonderful elegant ambience, attentive helpful service. One of the very best restaurants anywhere. Perfect for special occassion.
One of the finest restaurants in which we have dined in 2018. Superb in all categories.
We were looking to revisit a couple of old favourites, and so La Chaumiere seemed an obvious choice. I booked it through Open Table and said it was a special occasion, which doesn't seem to have affected anything. I was seated with my back to the room facing a wall, which I quickly changed myself. Appetizers were okay, but nothing to write home about. Ordered black cod (me) and duck (him) and each tried a bite of the other's meal. He declared my fish too fishy, and I declared his duck EXTREMELY chewy and tough. When the waiter came to check, he whisked away the duck and replaced it with veal. I kept my meal (my choice). Again, nothing to write home about. Their wine list is as expected, and rather on the reasonable side for cost.
Unrelated to food: The older waiter there kept making a weird choking or coughing noise, like he had a hairball, which was quite distracting. I feel bad about mentioning it, because I'm sure he wasn't doing it on purpose... maybe he has a sinus polyp or something. Also, their music is truly terrible. At first I thought, Oh, Flute, that's something different, but it got quite wearing, and the quality of the sound was not good.
All in all, it's sad to say that maybe LC's time is up... there's only so long you can go on playing the same old song, and there are some excellent places to go eat quality French cuisine now.
Everything was excellent waiters food service five stars. Will recommend to friends and family and will return .
Fantastic food and impeccable service. Thanks Milan,
We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary and the service and dining experience was awesome! highly recommend.
Outstanding service and food was superbly prepared. Waiter was helpful in suggesting entrees and other courses.
Great service and even better food.
It was really good food! If you’re looking for an authentic French experience and good service go here! Atmosphere a bit “older” but a nice change to the modern funky vibes.
La Chaumiere came highly recommended from friends who previously lived in Calgary. It didn’t disappoint. The whole experience was outstanding. Food, wine, dessert, along with a great discussion with the owner. It was obvious they have a regular crowd and they were extremely welcoming to my wife and I. The owner wanted to make sure we had a great evening. Definitely will return next time we are in Calgary.
Great service and great food!
Milan our server was exceptional with service and all selections, the entire meal and wine selection was a great experience. Highly recommend.
We had an outstanding time with a great waiter and the meal was fabulous and his recommendation of French Pinot Noir was right on! It was a birthday occasion as written through OpenTable and the restaurant made the dessert dish perfect for the celebration, without being asked!
Service and ambience was pretty good, but food was mediocre. The appetizers were alright, nothing special. The entree was quite disappointing, with the beef being extremely dry.
Great food,excellent service,and good friends made the maximum of outing!
Our favourite restaurant in Calgary to celebrate special occasions. Food is exquisite and the service is great. The wine list is extensive and the sommelier's knowledge is thorough. Never had a bad experience since my family first enjoyed La Chaumiere 30+ years ago.
Great setting, wonderful food, great service. Made our anniversary all the more special.
Great Atmoshpere and wonderful food.
the Service is always First Rate!
fine French!!!!!! wonderful ambiance and the owner was incredible
Once again a wonderful experience on our anniversary. Staff excellent as was the food
Great food. Delay due to a very large party ordering 200+ items, but they were very good about dealing with it.
Tremendous French wine list.
Very good service, food, and atmosphere. Great wine list.
Amazing classic French restaurant with elegant surroundings and outstanding cuisine. Of note for our dining party - the lobster bisque (made at the table), salad of avocado fan with cucumber, tomatoes and curry dressing, Chateaubriand (finished at the table) and Grand Marnier souffles were all so delicious. Waitstaff was top quality and provided excellent service as one would expect here.
