Amazing wines and wine knowledge. Great people who like what they do and that shows. Extraordinary creations and nice pairing with their wines. For me a highlight in Calgary...
We had not been to Bar Von Der Fels for over a year. The food scene has changed dramatically. Very innovative and delicious. Wine was very good as usual. Start of service was not great. We waited over 10 mins for service and finally my husband had to walk to the bar to speak to someone. Not impressive. However the food was divine and the service improved as the evening progressed. We will be back because of the food for sure.
Not sure what happened on our 2nd visit. The first visit was probably the best dinner I’ve had. The second this past week was a big miss, food wise. The crab dish was weird and too salty to eat. The cheese plate was very boring. The scallop serving was tiny. There was few beets in the beet dish and far too much sauce. The service was impeccable.
Awesome experience. Learned about brettanomyces.
Great once again. Our waitress was super friendly and helpful.
Fantastic restaurant. Number one in the city. Must visit!
Short but very Inventive menu. All shareable plates. Excellent cocktails and great service
Great service to start but follow up dropped off towards end. No thank you on the departure.
The flavour combinations were great!! Really enjoyed our experience. Thanks!!
This is my fave spot in the city. Understated, ridiculously knowledgeable on food and wine, DIVINE. Get here as soon as you can and often!
Excellent food and drinks in unique environment combined with superior service makes this a unique social experience near downtown Calgary.
Just amazing!!! GO.
Too expensive for the venue and food.
Awesome creative food in a friendly and fun atmosphere. Chef was very creative and server was fun and helpful.
No nonsense service - efficient but limited personal engagement. Extensive wine and beer menu, limited on the cocktails. Food is cleanly executed (not the most cutting-edge flavors but again, direct and efficient) and portions err on the small side.
The wine. Perfect.
The bread. So good.
Big ol rib eye. WORTH IT.
Food was bad. Ordered a variety of dishes none of which I was thrilled with. Expected more especially for the price point.
Service was excellent, turns out it was one of the owners. I don't drink wine often so I figure this was the place to get recommendations. He brought several to try with a brief explanation of each. The kitchen is very small and I was most impressed by the quality of food that they could produce in such a small space. Everything was excellent and I will certainly be back, one of my favourites in the city for sure.
My only issue is that at times, it was difficult to hear the other person over the noise.
Excels at creative wine and food pairing. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff.
Wine selection was amazing.
Food was delicious
I'd highly recommend Bar Von der Fels. The food was creative but not overdone. The wines, many of which natural, were stellar. The service and experience was comfortable and memorable. The owner built us a menu and offered wines to match the courses. Will come back whenever I am in Calgary.
The menu is small but the food incredibly tasty. The wine is unique and interesting. The bar is small and not good for large groups but excellent for three to four people.
Booked a reservation intending to stay for a drink only but could not resist the bread, cheese and charcuterie - so delicious and great wine. Highly recommend for a date or one and one friend evening.
Great bar, great food, and exceptionally friendly staff. Make sure to speak to Thomas if you are interested in wine, he is a very well versed gentleman.
What an incredible night at Bar Von Der Fels! This is the anniversary that never ends.
Charcuterie, kushi oysters, comté cheese, crab with cantelope, gnocchi and wagyu ribeye with a selection of premium wines expertly paired by the sommeliers Will and Thomas. A night to remember!
A very interesting menu, lots or originality. Not every dish hit the mark but love the attitude. Great wine list, beer list a hidden gem.
My girlfriend and I stumbled upon this hidden gem last Thursday and are SO thankful we did. This place is now my new favourite restaurant in Calgary with hands down the best wine list in the city. The food was delicious, creative, and very well priced. Both owners were working and it was amazing being able to chat with them about the concept of their restaurant and the personal touches within the restaurant (check out the photos in the bathroom!). Their menu is constantly changing and I cannot wait to come back and try out more of their food and drink creations. Definitely check out Bar Von Der Fels if you are able to!
Check out Von Der Street!! New menu, fantastic chef. Everything excellent.
excellent! Wow the food is so good here and a amazing wine selection and a staff with so much knowledge. I would go back in a flash. The food is a bit expensive for the plate size and trying to share. But the taste was over the top
Excellent wine selection. 2 dishes were amazing and 2 were ok/good
Had a fantastic bottle of wine, but did not eat here. Would definitely go back to try the food.
Owner was amazing - had great wine suggestions. Food was incredible too - each bite was out of this world! So worth it! It’s easy to see why this place made Canada’s top 40 restaurants
Amazing food and service. Take any reservation you can get. Your expectations for this restaurant will be exceeded
We chose Bar Von Der Fels for my 30th birthday dinner based on a stron recommendation from a friend.
This place is NOT overrated.
Amazing service, perfect wine pairing from their daily changing variety of open bottles, and well thought out, delicious and carefully sourced cuisine.
We stayed for 2 hours and left very happy.
Thank you for creating such a special place!
The food was excellent, service attentive and wine list varied and interesting. Will be back for sure
Our latest dining experience was amazing! The food was incredible and the service is always professional and accessible. This spot never disappoints and seems to only get better and better. A must visit if in Calgary.
Amazing as always, always doing the unexpected with ingredients. Don't see steak done so well and yet so simply very often.
I’ve eaten twice at BbdF now - with rather different experiences. The first time I was quite blown away with the complex and rich flavours that permeated each dish from the tiny kitchen - quite an achievement!! The second time, not so much. The food was still very good, but the flavours didn’t fly and sing as they had the first time. It was a different menu, for the most past, and different choices, but I had hoped for more. The service is still great and the ambiance of this small space still hipster cool!
Went to the young guns event hosted by this venue. Wow!! Amazing food and service. We asked for a wine pairing and were not disappointed. Great way to provide some exposure to the up and coming chef's in Calgary. Would definitely attend another event. The food was presented, flavour of all.the dishes were perfect and did a great job of showcasing some of the culinary talent Calgary has to offer.
