Absolutely amazing service, food and drinks. Every time we visit, we are reminded why we love it so much!
Service was really great! Drinks were fun and interesting and the food was good. Free dessert for my friend’s birthday was amazing; she said she’d go back just for the goat cheese cheesecake.
It was a great time ! The server was super nice. The food and cocktail were good ! The waiting time was a tad over what we hoped. We did go at the the time when they were switching from brunch to lunch.
Had to stay home for Christmas due to work & spent it with a gf. Very quiet. They put us in the corner when the restaurant was empty which made it feel to quiet almost. Service was good, I had the Christmas special 3 course rib eye & it was more fatty than anything, everything else was good. I can get better food for cheaper price in my eyes.
Birthday , server was great and food was delicious.
Our Server Anna was amazing. The menu is limited, but everything we ordered was great.
Our server was attentive and engaging. He knew the food and wine menu very well. We had tickets to the theatre, and he was very good about getting our food to us to allow enough time to get to our show. The food was delicious! I had the steak which was cooked perfectly. My friend had the chicken sandwich which was huge and tasty! The ambiance was very nice. It’s definitely worth another visit.
Great service! The server was helpful and offered good drink choices.
I was there for breakfast and brunch. And both visits were great. Food and service was 10/10. Prices were reasonable.
I believe this was the 9th time since this restaurant opened about 5 years ago that I’ve enjoyed a meal and a beautiful cocktail. I’m so glad One 18 seems to have weathered the pandemic difficulties and have kept up their quality in food and bar service. I absolutely love the Shareables menu for a pre-theatre bite and Wednesday night’s choices were great… we enjoyed the One 18:Salad - topped with Sylvan Star Gouda, my favourite cheese in the whole world, pickled shallots and smoked walnuts. I could have eaten the entire plate myself and kind of regretted having to share. The fried Brussels sprouts were delicious, especially the bourbon balsamic onion jam - I would love to know how to make this! The white bean hummus with lavash really good, if just a little runny… altogether with our Classic Whiskey Sour and Northern Lights cocktails, we had another great meal. May you continue doing such a great job. I’ll be back, again, and again, and again!
Great service! Good food! Perfect for pre Theater dinner. Good to be able to sit away from the tv!!
Anna was an amazing server! Some of the best service I have ever had in Calgary. She is a gem!
“Choose your own adventure” Old Fashioned is fab!
Loved our meal and great service. Old fashions like no where else!
Un peu décevant ce soir. Le service n’était pas au point. Il n’avait pas les choix de vin que nous avions choisi pr deux fois. La nourriture était correcte sans plus. C’était meilleur il y a deux ans.
Excellent service and food.
Amazing experience as always! Great food, friendly staff, and the best old fashioned in Calgary.
First time here. Slow start, about 30 minutes waiting for drink order. Service seemed to lack training, minimal engagement. Perhaps they were busy and understaffed. Appetizer was very tasty. Mushrooms on toast. Entrees we’re average. Burger and trout. Trout was overdone. Side of veggies were very nice.
Would love to see the bar remain open longer
Great dinner experience overall. Excellent atmosphere and service. The Trout was delicious, only surpassed by the Old Fashioned!
The food was great, drinks were great, and the service was great. Honestly had an amazing night.
First time here and we loved it! Great ambiance, smoked build you own old fashions were delicious and fun experience. Service was friendly. We will be back.
Great food and service
Our waitress was amazing. The good was great and we will be back. I will also recommend to friends.
Excellent food. Fun menu. Great service. Can’t wait to go again!
Our sever was great! Cocktails were great. Food was only ok. Not like it used to be. Person that delivered the food to the table just dropped it on the table and left, very odd. Used to be a destination for their burger. Sadly, not anymore.
Delicious food and amazing drinks. Thank you for the night!
Excellent dining experience. Food was fantastic. Highly recommend the Wagyu beef tartare. Piri Piri chicken Sandwich and roasted mushroom bucatini pasta were very good too. But the cocktails are the star of the show. Order anything that involves their smoked glass approach. You won’t be disappointed
First time here yesterday (10/24/21) for a birthday dinner and it was amazing. Definitely will come back again!
Food was yummy. Drinks were yummy. The service was great!
Amazing place for cocktails - especially anything bourbon or whiskey. Delicious apple style food too, good for sharing
Worst Thanksgiving Ever.
Come here all the time to dine and drink old fashions. Food is always amazing whether it’s dinner or brunch.
Food was great (though portions are small) & the cocktails are amazing!
We had a GREAT night. The table side Old Fashion drink is very fun. Great food & service!
Great fun!!! Get the premium discovery whiskey flight. The One18 burger was tremendous.
Overall the evening was a disappointment, we booked a table for 6 to enjoy dinner with friends, the day before the reservation we were called and told our table would be on the patio (no problem) though it could get cool and they had only a few heaters, there was also live entertainment to celebrate pride week (again no issue and sounded fun). On arrival we were seated on a sectional sofa around a low table. Not really conducive to enjoying a relaxing dinner! Drink service was very slow as was the food (limited to what could be eaten on your knees so some options not practical ) and one order was wrong… Luckily the evening was pleasant as no heaters were in evidence. Overall not a great experience and it’s unlikely we will return.
Small menu but always good!
One 118 is amazing. Staff and food were top notch.
Enjoyed my birthday eve here!
The ambience and the cocktails were amazing! However we were disappointed with the food. We ordered appetizers, but they never arrived. When the main course arrived, most of the food was cold. Our waitress apologized and offered to swap the cold food, however, at that point, we had been waiting for a while and were quite hungry, so we continued to eat our food as we did not want to wait any longer. We would certainly go back for their cocktails but not their food.
