Very good thx
Very nice! We had a very friendly server who recommended the grilled octopus (it was excellent), and we had a half dozen fresh oysters as well, which were some of the better oysters I've had, both just very fresh.
We had gone the day after Valentine's day so it was still a reduced menu, but we had the shrimp and scallop papardelle, and the Chilean sea bass, both were very nice. The sea bass was quite simple with minimal accompaniments (just steamed vegetables) so I felt it was maybe slightly overpriced, but I would order it again, it was exceptionally moist.
When we walked in host didn’t even look up to say hello as we stood there for about 3 min, then a lady walked over took us to a table didn’t ask or care if we had a reservation or not.
Server was great at first then seemed to busy to come back and get us the things we needed when supper came like a knife so I had to use my husbands steak knife to cut my veggies and potato up didn’t offer pepper and when came back with our drinks I had to ask for pepper and meal was almost done.
Portion size of appetizers and meal were small and average for taste.
Consistently great food and service. Always a fine dining experience.
We brought in a party of 8 for our 25th Anniversary and had a terrific time. The service was outstanding, even the manager came by and spent time with us. Highly recommend it as a place to dine!
Always outstanding! Never been let down by the Manitoba Pickeral, simply delicious! And if you want over the top excellence...try the fish and chips! Fanatastic! Great service, great food, Great Place!! Cheers
Service from our waitress Vivian was terrific - we took our time ordering, but she was very attentive. The arctic char was very tasty but just a touch dry. The Alaska King Crab was very good - so sweet and tender, although quite pricey. Overall a 4 out of 5.
The Octopus appetizer is highly recommended. By far the best fish and chips in town!
It was the most romantic dinner that we had and we will be back
First time visit and we were very impressed. I believe the best lobster I have had in western Canada.
Great job team, we will be back.
Some of the chairs had lost their padding and were uncomfortable. We swapped them with other chairs
Excellent food great atmosphere! My favorite place for dinner in Calgary!
An overall awesome experience. The server was lovely and gave us impeccable service. The food was amazing, some of the best chicken I have ever tasted. The seafood was really great as well.
I love Oceana! It's my favourite seafood restaurant as the seafood is always so fresh and the customer service is always spot-on. We ordered the Grilled Octopus and the Crab Cakes for appys. They were both so delicious. The octopus was grilled ever so tender and the crab cakes with that sauce was so good! We decided on the Daily Lunch Special which happened to be Grilled Arctic Char with steamed carrots, broccoli and brussel sprouts and a nice fluffy wild and brown rice pilaf. Everything tasted so good. The fish was so fresh, especially with that squirt of lemon. Ended up with a free dessert for my birthday - Cookie and Cream Cheesecake - Yum! We will be back, Oceana!
We where really disappointed with the service. Very slow service for water and drinks. Empty plates sat on table for a long time. The arctic char was very poor quality. The lobster was only average.
The lamb was very good.
Great food - great service - great surroundings - we were the first customers for the night - in the mood for seafood - was not disappointed.
Great food and excellent service, as always. Thank you!
Good food and pleasant service, as usual.
Absolutely excellent. Had a wonderful and delicious meal. Everything from our table, our server was outstanding. Great date night!
Beautiful restaurant but the food was only fair and very expensive (shrimp cocktail had 4 shrimp for $17!!!). Our lobster tails were over cooked, crab cakes were average at best, the only amazing item was the octopus. Service was very good and the setting is extremely romantic.
Best oysters in Alberta and cooked to perfection, friendly, awesome service. My favorite restaurant
Fantastic restaurant and service . Our waitress was very helpful, patient, and pleasant. The ambiance was beautiful.
Service was great and the food amazing. Inlove this place!
The norm anywhere is is to be offered dessert coffee or other after dining
Not to be told the check is coming (even though not requested) as soon as plates are cleared.
This dampened the otherwise fantastic service and food prior to.
Had a great dinner close to home and was a great value for amazing food. Will be going back again soon!
Always great food and service with friendly helpful staff!
It has been several years since we attended dinner at this location. Major changes, smaller dining room, separate area called "Q-Haute cuisine- what is this? Service was brisk, but friendly. Food quality and quantity very good. Cutlery, and especially the wine glasses were not what we would expect for premium wines and bubbly. My "birthday surprise" consisted of a small candle in the desert that I had already ordered - a bit on the cheap side, and embarrassing, made me wish I had not mentioned my birthday.
Looks upscale but with exceptional food reasonably priced. My wife and I felt like we were the only guests though we could see a continuous stream of customers walking in. The only thing I'd suggest improvements on are their seats that need extra padding.
This was spectacular overall. The food was excellent, the service gracious, and the space quiet and elegant. I will gladly go again if I am in the area.
excellent seafood choices in a quaint surrounding! Excellent evening all around!
Great place all round. Great staff and table service was outstanding
Exceptional food and service. The orange roughy is the best I’ve ever had. Service is exceptional, friendly, polite, knowledgeable. A favourite restaurant in Calgary and a beautiful location by the Bow river.
I appreciate the attention to detail from (who I gather) is the owner. She was fabulous when we entered and thanked us one the way out.
I would think the manager (who is charming and checked in on us throughout the meal) would arrange to remove the "patio open" sign when it was cool and in fact it was closed (we requested patio seating). My point is my pupils narrow when I note this detail.
Food was very good, though our server did not tell us the special "Arctic Char" (I would have ordered that for sure).
A great date night for a special occasion for sure.
We had seafood and it was all excellent. My girlfriend, who is a connoisseur of fine food, said she had not tasted octopus this good in a long time. The ambiance was very classy and quiet, which is hard to find these days. We had a great window seat and the service was just as excellent as the food. We would both highly recommend this restaurant. The only issue was finding nearby street parking.
Our soups were fantastic, and the seafood platter we ordered was great with one exception. The prawns, oysters, octopus were all fresh, flavorful and well prepared and presented. Not sure how they missed the mark on the lobster tails, they were dry and tough and no where near the caliber of everything else we had. All in all, a great experience, just can't get over those lobster tails.
The food and service are always great!
The octupus was very delicious. Everyone's meal was fantastic. Sea bass slightly overcooked but still tasty. Great little spot.
I can’t recommend this place. It reminded me of the “before” conditions in those cooking shows that do a restaurant makeover. When we arrived for our reservation, there was nobody to greet us. Eventually, a hostess, who later became our server, appeared but had trouble signing us in on their electronic system. Later in her welcoming address at our table, she asked if we had been at this establishment previously. Following our answer of about “five years ago”, she responded that nothing had changed – “it’s the same menu!”. The menu was extensive ranging from seafood, beef, lamb, pasta dishes, and Greek platters with a number of very highly-priced items. However, service was spotty (forgotten drinks, broken cork on second bottle of wine and wine immediately poured into glasses still partially filled from bottle one), and food was pretty average, with some dishes under-seasoned and tasteless. The highlight was when the server was taking our order and her cell phone rang loudly. She proceeded to reach down her top and into her bra to remove the noisy device. At the end of our meal (about 8.30pm on a Friday night), the few earlier-occupied tables had been vacated and place was deserted – an unfortunate predictor of the urgent need to undergo a makeover.
Excellent table service, ordered fish and it was cooked perfectly!
Would definitely go again..except I was made to feel like our tip wasn't enough as I was stopped by our waitress on the way out asking if anything was wrong with service or food. People should be free to tip what they can and staff be grateful for getting extra $ on top of pricey food.
The service was great; the food was underwhelming.
