Great atmosphere and amazing service. Flavours of the dishes were really good. Loved the kale salad and sirloin.
Food was lovely. Limited veggie/vegan selection.
A fun vibe, great music, helpful wait-staff. The food was okay. It was almost really good, they just missed the mark.
Went to Model Milk for the first time. What a great meal to close out our trip. The Wagyu brisket is killer and the apple pie was amazing.
Good experience. Have been many times and this was likely my least favourite meal that I’ve had there. I suspect it was a bit of a one off.
We didn’t like the new menu. Bit of a disappointment relative the usual high quality!
One of our favorite spots in the city. Servers are 2nd to none and the cocktails are great. And that’s all before an excellent meal.
We celebrated my parents 50’s anniversary, we had very good times.
We had a wonderful dinner at Model Milk. Our server was very knowledgeable and professional. He definitely added to our overall experience. Also the apple pie was to die for.
The service was the best I’ve ever had!
It was great!! Celebrating my friends birthday & they were awesome!! Our waiter was fantastic!!
Great Sunday supper , everyone loved the menu . Wine feature was great and all the cocktails recommended by JF were a great fit !
Kate was an amazing help! Definitely worked around all of my dietary restrictions and even brought over a free appy for us to try! Would recommend for a date or just a nice night out!
Our group had a wonderful dinner as usual at Model Milk. We are from California and this is my favorite restaurant in Calgary! Visit it every time I’m in town.
Spectacular meal! The lamb and the Arctic Char were absolutely amazing paired with some incredible herbs, and fresh vegetables. I am not a fan of charred lettuce, but the baby romaine, crusted with pistachios, completely changed my mind. We would return just for the asparagus alone - brilliant!
A large private function was booked without adjusting the staffing and our order was delayed a ridiculous amount as a result. Our server was excellent, and the food, once we got it, was also good, but we finished our appetizers and waited more than an hour beyond that for our entrees! We received apologies and comped meals, but it soured the experience and we felt bad for the staff. There's no excuse for that and Management needs to either increase capacity or reduce reservations when private functions are booked. We'll think twice about coming back as a result, which is a shame because the food and floor service was good. -- *UPDATE* we received a personal follow-up call from the Director of Operations/General Manager, they fully accepted responsibility for errors and have made efforts to ensure that we enjoy a visit in the future. This is significant and I am impressed. This is what makes the difference when running a business and being part of a community.
The Sunday Supper was phenomenal! Good value, and the food was amazing. Will definitely be going back
It wasn’t great! We waited a long time for the waitress and service was sporadic at best for the 2 hours. The drinks took over 20 minutes to arrive and we were seated at least 45 minutes before the food was ordered. The appetizers were ok at best and the main entree of fried chicken was also just ok. The highlight of the meal was dessert , although coffees also took over 15 minutes.
Overall I was extremely disappointed and this place can’t compare to other amazing places in the immediate area.
Overall, it was good. Service was phenomenal. Attention to the timing of when food should come was great. Halibut was subpar. In total, did not end up feeling like it was good value given the presence of better food for quite a bit cheaper in the neighbourhood. At the same time, I’d go back to try it again if a new menu is released.
Great Father’s Day dinner!
Food is always excellent! Prompt and attentive service, we were in and out within 90 minutes.
We will be back!
Great beer, food and servers. It was my first time there and pleasantly surprised by the unique menu and restaurant’s vibe. Will definitely return and try the other items. Thank you!
The service was fabulous! The server made sure that we loved everything, answered all of our questions and was super fast without rushing us. We always go back for this reason. The food is amazing too!
We loved sitting at the counter and getting the full experience of the kitchen cooking our meal. The chef would also stop by and chat/ fill up our waters and ask how our meal was! We had wonderful service from all the staff and the food was AMAZING!
Great variety of menu. Wine list was good. Don't try serving Champagne in white wine glasses.
For what we paid for it was definitely over hyped. Three of us had 3 drinks, 2 apps, 2 meals and it was $165. One of the apps was a salad with dressing and a few nuts -no other toppings and the artic char main was so revolting we all spit it out immediately. I was given a vegetarian dish as a substitute that was almost $30 for grain and sauce. Considering we were told this was one of Canadas best restaurants we left very unhappy
Love the farm family meal on sundays
Great experience for a family celebration
We enjoyed our time Model Milk. We had an awesome server with many recommendations. The food was excellent and very nice ambiance.
Excellent service beginning to end. All dishes we tried were delicious!!
The fried chicken was amazing!
We came here for a special occasion dinner. Our party ordered a few things: the Calamari, asparagus, beef tartare, beef wagu, fried chicken, burger, and apple pie.
Everything was cooked to perfection and the portions were good. The beef was juicy and cooked perfectly. The calamari was soo succulent. And the apple pie was very tasty. The only thing was that hubby found the fried chicken a little under-seasoned. But I thought it was very good with the sides and the pickles. Thanks
Had high hopes for the meal. Unfortunately it just wasn’t that great. Nothing was outstanding, meal was mostly “this is interesting, but I wouldn’t want to eat it again”.
As others have said in other reviews, the flatbread shouldn’t be on any restaurant menu.
Server and space was fantastic.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary having dinner at Model Milk. This was our second dinner at Model Milk in 2 weeks because we had such a good experience the first time. The food was excellent and the service is friendly and attentive. The ambience was comfortable and vibrant. We found Model Milk to be of good value and we would recommend it.
Enjoyed the entire experience. Will plan to dine there again.
We've come here a couple of times for anniversary and birthday dinners. The menu is always different with a good selection of options. Atmosphere is awesome. My only complaint would be the trendy steel framed chairs in the bar area are not that comfortable after sitting awhile.
Fabulous food and service. So often we are disappointed by concept or flavour and all of that not being in alignment with price, but model milk was an all round winner. The service was pitch perfect, not too much, not too little, honest and thoughtful. Outstanding drink menu. Oh my god.
The Obi-wan perogies... The only downside was it was a very busy Saturday night - it was loud and somewhat difficult to carry on a conversation.
So amazing! Food was great, and I lost something at the restaurant, they found it a week later and called me to let me know! So appreciative!
Food was average. Burger was under seasoned and fries were cold. Arctic char was just okay. Service was good and our waiter was very friendly and it’s a great building, but food was not worth what it cost
Always awesome. Never a bad meal or experience. Best burger ever!
