One of my favourite places to eat. Great food, ambiance and excellent service.
Everything was amazing except for the hostess. She was irritated with how long it took me to find my vaccine proof ( I had it, just phone was acting up for a minute) and kept saying “ what” and staring at us while we were saying we had a reservation. She seemed grumpy. We all have bad days but we felt unwelcome.
Waiter was AWSOME!!!! So nice and knowledgeable. Food was 5/5…so good. Best calamari I ever had.
Neon light is really bright, ask to sit away from the window.
The food was delicious and the service good. The challenge this particular night was a table of 6 people who were extremely loud. Them, plus the loud music played by the restaurant, made the evening unpleasant. We had to leave asap because our ears were hurting. I guess that's the challenge with being placed in a small room with a noisy group. But kudos to the kitchen for producing such delicious dishes for us!
Always amazing, we were in a bit of a hurry and the server and cook accommodated for it with ease. Thank you!
Place was very noisy. Very hard to have a conversation. Place was too dark to read the menu.
Exceptional winw, food, and service once again by Graham and his team... David treated us very well and had some marvelous wine suggestions for tonight and next time as well. Could not have been better... THANK YOJ !!!
Blake and Graham took excellent care of us - awesome (Small) menu which I like. All excellent choices and I want to go again and try everything
A wonderful place for special occasions! We love both the food and cocktails!!!
Great food and drinks. Server was fantastic. Overall a great night.
Not our first time at Cardinale and definitely won’t be our last. As always, great service and great food. The drink menu seems to be getting even more creative and the food was delicious.
Overall dinner at Cardinale was good. There were some issues with the food - the pancetta in the gnocchi was fatty and the panna cotta was not set - but overall it was delicious. Our main server was great and she was very helpful however they had an additional server bringing out food who did not know which seat numbers we were or what dishes he was bringing out. We ended up at a table near a large group who were very loud and made it hard to hear.
Food was awesome but soooo loud could not hear anyone at the table talk
Table of 8 girls right beside us. they should have been put in a separate room . Made the evening not as enjoyable.
Outstanding evening, thank-you!
I’d give more stars if I could! Everything was perfect, from the service of the hostess to the service from our server, to the food and the wine, and everything in between. Can’t wait to come back!
Great food, drinks, and service from the best people as always!!
Our experience was wonderful! Dave, our server, was very welcoming and friendly. The food was phenomenal! Overall, a great experience and can't wait to go back.
Excellent food, excellent service, excellent cocktails. Highly recommend. This is a hidden gem in Calgary.
Food was outstanding once again.
Great night. Service, food, drink were excellent
Once again, an amazing experience at Cardinale. The food is absolutely amazing, the service is quick and friendly, and the ambiance is fantastic.
Excellent meal and service was great.
We had great food, great service - our waitress Jennifer was amazing- attentive, personable, friendly and took an interest in who we were. Graham was also fantastic - he remembered us from a previous visit and made a point of going to each table to check in. He’s got the best cocktail list and his recommendations were top notch. We will go again, and again!
Such an awesome place! So glad we stumbled on to this incredible neighborhood place! We like to support local! We live in Ramsay and are so glad to have rediscovered this place! Awesome food and service! See you very soon! ❤️
It was our first time here and it was amazing! The best tartare I’ve ever had, an incredible feature wine, and delicious pasta. Our server was super friendly and knowledgeable, and she was perfectly attentive. The place is gorgeous and intimate, I’ll definitely be back!
Recommended by a frequent diner and well known patron. Graham was a brilliant fun host brilliant maker of cocktails. A series of appetizers was a great way to sample the fare and would be what we’ll do next time too.
Very good food.
Absolutely outstanding! David took care of us and was excellent. Both the wine and cocktail recommendations were spot on. He was clearly very very busy, but still took the time to check in and chat like we were his only table. Great atmosphere and excellent food. We were on a time crunch so only did cocktails and dinner, but we are very excited to come back for a full night out. Everything was very reasonably priced, especially the alcohol. Will be back for sure.
Great food and service, very friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant
Outstanding service, food & wine. Would highly recommend. Graham and his team provide and exceptional experience. Worth every penny and not expensive.
The burrata appetizer was delicious and the pappardelle was delightful. The server was very knowledgeable regarding the menu and our dietary restrictions. Great overall atmosphere and service.
Our server was outstanding. Such great service always makes a meal better!
Great food and the service was fantastic. We asked the waitress for food suggestions and everything we ordered was superb.
Sat at the bar and a wonderful experience with Graham. We ordered the calamari and two pasta dishes. Both were exceptional.
Excellent food and energetic atmosphere. The only downside was the music was a bit loud.
Amazing!! Everything about the evening was fantastic!
Excellent food and attentive service. Will definitely return when in the area.
Service was great, food excellent, drinks unique! It was a bit noisy for me, but there was a birthday party going on. Next time we go I expect it will be a bit quieter, and there will definitely be a next time fairly soon!
Always a great experience. Hidden gem worth visiting.
My favourite guilty pleasure. Chicken liver parfait.. excuse me? How can you be that delicious. Probably my favourite to date. The bread was the perfect accompaniment. The freshest pasta. Linguine is always my go to. Thank you chef, and thank you to our knowledgeable and engaging server. Made our date night one we won’t soon forget! You’ll be seeing us for those warming pasta nights we crave.
Fantastic date night. Service is was outstanding, I love how there is a team mentality in serving tables. We often had various wait staff supporting the refreshing of our drinks, clearing of tables and engaging in conversation. Food was amazing as per usual! My Italian husband ordered some bread to soak up all the beautiful sauces…. Sign of a great meal!
