We were celebrating our anniversary with our elderly, hard of hearing parents and the staff and our server went out of their way to find a quiet table and turn the music down so that we could have a very enjoyable lunch. The food was exceptional and our server was so attentive to us. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon celebrating our anniversary!

About the restaurant
D.O.P. is a journey that started with a large family who immigrated from a small village in the heart of Italy in 1979. With them they brought the memories, traditions, and recipes of the old country. For over 14 years my parents operated an Italian restaurant in Ontario. This journey continued when I moved to Calgary, inspired by my father, I continued working in the restaurant industry. His legacy and my exposure to the diverse food culture in the city helped shape the concept of D.O.P.

Being a second generation Canadian, I want to honour both my Italian roots and Canadian upbringing, by sharing our families’ recipes and adapting them to our Canadian landscape.
We are privileged to share with you the time-old traditions and memories of a family whose passion for Italian cooking created a legacy.

So come on in, leave your shoes on and let’s make more.

About the restaurant
Lulu Bar is an escape from the ordinary. Its welcoming vibe is reminiscent of hidden gems from your last vacation, only better because it’s right here in your own backyard. With a healthy, Pacific-inspired menu, Lulu’s wood-fired food is light and fresh — but heavy on flavour.
Chef Joseph Sokoloff’s fare is a tribute to the Pacific Ocean and many of the regions that touch it, with influences from Asia to Hawaii, California to British Columbia. Lulu’s fun, light, and refreshing drink menu is equally well-travelled. Its wine, beer, and creative cocktail offerings will make you feel like you’re far from home — and we like that.

The staff is great. They were very accommodating helping me determine which dishes I could eat with my many allergies. The food was very good especially the scallops crudo. There is lots of covered outdoor seating and the music is at a level where it is still possible to have a converstaion.

About the restaurant
Our décor is warm and modern. The tradition has always been dark wood, leathers and a muted palette for a steakhouse. We broke the mould and decided to add hand-selected music that reflects us! We’re more like Jay Z and less like Sinatra.

We only serve ranch specific Alberta Beef. That means we don’t serve beef from anywhere else on the planet. We know our farmers and ranchers personally and respect the hard work they put in to produce our beef.

We are one of just a handful of steakhouses in Canada that serves, Grass-fed, Grain-fed, Wet-aged, Dry-aged and Wagyu beef 365 days a year. Our beef is always fresh never frozen.

We use a 1800 degree Infrared Grill to cook your steaks. The high heat creates a flavourful crust on the outside of the steak and leaves a juicy centre.

Service was great. Nice atmosphere, and good location. The Alberta roll was good, and so were the basic Maki rolls. The tempura was probably the best I've had in the city. Sushi and nigiri were spot on. The saki that the server chose was top notch. 3 of the 6 rolls we ordered were seared with the blowtorch on top and I absolutely hate that. Maybe I didn't read the menu well enough prior to ordering, but I wasn't expecting what I got in any of those 3 cases. Just thought it was going to be raw tuna. Disappointed, but I'll live. Anyway, I will certainly give this place another try, but will focus more on the main menu items and the sushi, as those seem to be their strengths.

Great wait staff (great waitress!), lovely table with a view of the lake (not a window table but had a good view none the less) and delicious food (anniversary menu). Some haven't been here since before the change to The Lake House, a pleasant change to the "old" place.

Food is great (brussels sprouts stole the show). I had the lamb and it was perfectly done. The rib eye steak was really good and the braised short rib was delicious. Unfortunately, the fish was a bit dry, but overall the meal was very good. The service is exceptional and very professional. Ambiance is traditional high-end steak house but great for conversation. The prices are high, but not shocking. Overall a great experience.
