Bar Von der Fels
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.
Amazing food. Incredible service. 10/10 will be back.
Don’t even think about going anywhere else. This is the spot.
Owners and staff are excellent! Right seating (max occupancy is 28) but lovely food, great wines and engaging people! Not cheap...but worth every penny!
First time here and we will definitely be back. Great food and wine and service was very good.
Outstanding wine list with best selection of wines by glass in Calgary. Creative memorable food. Thomas behind the bar is knowledgable and helpful. Highest recommendations!!
Awsome wine and food pairing, outstanding wine selection. Great food, awsome people
I booked dinner for my wife and I. I had read good reviews about the food. When we arrived there was a large table of ‘stampede goers’ imbibing and having a good time. The acoustics were quite active and many times the volume reached uncomfortable levels. We enjoyed the food and the wine was quite good. We will likely give it another try but not again during the stampede.
Had supper at 6:30 yesterday. Very small venue that seats about 22 total (6 at the bar). Filled up around 7:30. Attentive staff. Enjoyed a glass of wine, a bottle of beer and 2 cocktails along with 4 plates for $165 including tip. Food was excellent (we needed an explanation of almost all plates, lol). Sourdough bread a better (yum!), baked oyster (just hubby had this, said it was very good), zuchinni flowers stuffed with creamy goodness and lightly battered (yum!yum!), pan fried rainbow trout with French beans (yum!yum!yum!). We shared all plates and left perfectly full.
Creative food, approachable spirits, great vibe. Would recommend.
Great meal with friends. We sat just outside the kitchen and were able to talk to the chef when ever he had a free minute. Very friendly knowledgable staff. Creative sharing menu. The Wagyu striploin was excellent as well as the tomato leaf pasta.
Perfect as always. BVDF can’t be beat.
Outstanding experience! Constantly changing menu for foodies of all categories! Wine selection by the glass is 2nd to no one! Listen to servers wine recommendations for pairings!
The food was really good and I can’t wait to go back and try more food and wine. I enjoyed the menu, it’s small but done well. Servers were kind and created a relaxed atmosphere.
Thank you bar von der fel for finally bringing a great dining experience to Calgary. We had friends visiting from nyc and they were impressed by the food creativity,quality, service and wine options. We enjoyed every minute of our three hour meal.
I hope they stay in this intimate location and don’t make the mistake of other Calgary restaurants by moving to big banal locations. It feels like a place you would find in a back lane in Amsterdam or Barcelona. There are too many restaurants in Calgary who have spent millions trying to achieve what this place has.
The wine pairings with the food was outstanding. The food choices blanketed the palate with a variety of textures and flavors. Cozy setting and attentive service made it a perfect night out.
You have to look for the entrance but once inside, it's a cozy little place. High ceilings but the noise factor isn't an issue if you are wanting to chat with your wife :). Food was great, not big portions but we both left feeling pleasantly full. Loved the asparagus dish! Raviolo was cooked al dente, great too. Would give the corn a miss next time though but that's my taste buds coming play. Wine by the glass was interesting, tried a couple that i wouldn't normally so good to experiment and it was tasty.
Great evening at Von Der Fels as always - excellent service and expert suggestions on the wine offerings.
We’ve been to BVDF several times and the service and wine selection is the best we’ve experienced anywhere. The food this evening was fantastic. Looking forward to our next 5Star evening. Thanks again!!
Friend in from Montreal! Immediately thought of Von Der Fels. Enjoyed everything. Food was great, wine excellent and service plus! Always have a great time here!
Staff were very good and did a great job of helping us pair wines with food.
Presentation of dishes was very good.
Taste and uniqueness of food was interesting and good.
Great by the glass pours and food was outstanding.
Great food and great costumer service
