Excellent family style meal overall and excellent service! I have one issue though...when you are a table of 4 and the salad, clams and bread are the same sized serving as all of the tables of 2, I really feel like you are getting screwed over. Something to be aware of for the restaurant.

Service was efficient, knowledgeable about drinks and could offer suggestions based on taste and food we ordered and yet, was never in our face and bothersome. Dealt with our need for splitting the bill based on company expense accounts very professionally and without complaint. So service is great BUT so is the ambiance and food.
Beautiful heritage building with multiple levels of seating so you don't feel overwhelmed by too many diners around you (or their noise).
The cocktails were well presented and well mixed (no weird additions to classics) and even allowed us to veer from the menu - they make a classic Old Fashioned. The calamari was a delightful take on a sometimes tired, over breaded and fried appetizer staple. Loved the addition of the edamame and garlic crouton.
My only complaint - my artic char was the most amazing dish until the most central, last 2-3 bites. They were underdone and nothing grosses me out more than raw fish THAT isn't sushi. But my friend's Wagyu was amazing from start to finish and the sides were delicious.

Honestly was in a month ago and sat at the bar and had the best service with the female bartender and when we went out again a couple days ago she happen to recognize us and waved at us so my opinion that’s pretty awesome

Celebrated my one year anniversary with my man over dinner at Model Milk. The entire experience was amazing. We started with 3 appetizers, tartare, crudo and ended with the lamb ragu. Hands down the best ragu I’ve ever had. Ended with their famous fried chicken to share.
Cocktails and wine pairings were outstanding and service phenomenal. We spent 3 hours which seemed like 1.
All around an amazing place to try!

We ordered the calamari appetizer and was surprised at how salty it was, we also ordered the sable fish and it was even saltier. The amount of young fennel with the sable fish was excessive and the fennel seemed to be the source of all the salt in the dish. Service was great. Price is higher than it should be.

It was a perfect setting for my birthday dinner with my husband and because it was on a weekday night the ambiance and noise level was perfect. Service and food was great but it was on the overpriced side.

We thought it was very overpriced. I sent the chicken back because is was undercooked - they were good about it and gave me 2 new pieces that were cooked. Our waitress was adorable and very accommodating.
I wouldn't recommend it and I doubt that we will return.

Beef Tartar to start was amazing, unfortunately the mains to follow fell flat. We never send food back, and this was the first time we had to. Super unfortunate. Hope it was just a one off.

I have a food allergy and often have to substitute meal items. They made the entire meal as listed on the menu fresh for me without the offending food item I couldn't eat. It was amazing.

My second time to Model Milk. Always on my list of restuarants when I visit Calgary. Great ambience food is always fresh local interesting full of flavours and great wine to complement. Had a chance to sit at the back bar by the kitchen to watch these fantastic chefs to their craft. Tried the desert apple pie with cheddar cheese crumble topping which was a great treat to finish of a fantastic meal. Highly recommend this place!

Two visits and it was okay. Service was great but not attentive to details like how spicy food is and what is appropriate for an 8 year old. They did not insist on getting her something to eat except bread. The mom said don’t worry. But I insisted strongly. I had to really push for it. I really wish the food would have been spectacular. I am a big foodie and I truly want more and better restaurants in Calgary.
