    All food turned out too salty. It was really noisy like at night club, our table was right besides subwoofer. We asked waitress to turn it down, she agreed but did not seem that happen.

    I love this place - atmospheric and fun. In general the food is excellent but our lobster dogs were exceptionally dry and bland last night. I had a similar experience the first time I ordered them but thought I’d try again. I would skip this in favour of some of the other items which were delicious. The carrots were so good as was the sashimi. Definitely worth visiting.

    My husband and I do a date night every week and have been waiting for a night we could go to Clos de la Oyster Barre together, tonight was that night and absolutely nothing disappointed. Service was great and so was the food! Love their feature menu and our server was amazing, she gave great recommendations and was just absolutely superb throughout our experience! 10/10 will absolutely be coming back

    Spectacular Cod Cheeks & Chips feature last night! Perfectly cooked cod cheeks in a vodka beer batter with fantastic salt & vinegar chips. My only regret is that I didn’t have room to eat a second order. They NEED to make this a permanent menu item!

    Fantastic ambiance and service. They were playing old school hip hop! The chip and dip appetizer was decedent I could have licked the dip bowl hahah. I was so appreciative that the chef accommodated my egg allergy so we could have the octopus - by making semolina gnocchi from scratch. The octopus was absolutely to die for incredibly tender and flavourful. Highly recommend and I want to go back already.

    Where to begin? This is the coolest calgary oyster bar I have ever seen. The east coast oysters, and homemade jalapeño sauce was perfect together. Their champagne and wine list amazing. They had a Louisiana influenced specials and the grilled shrimp were messy but incredibly authentic to Cajun styled food. The mussels and French bread is a must have and if you love caviar as for a bump with your oysters.

    The food and service were both great. The food was delicious and our server was lovely. My only complaint would be the very loud rap music. We didn’t mind it as much but I would never bring anyone who is easily offended. The “N” word, “F”word and many others were flying lol.

    The price to quality of oysters and the food was truly disappointing. Had shards in almost every single oyster that I had, and the tartare just tasted off. For me personally it was not worth it.

    A fun late night outing for oysters, this was our second time at Clos. We ordered 2 dozen oysters, the feature lamb gnocchi, mussels and fries. Everything was fresh, flavourful and delicious, particularly the gnocchi and mussels - both of which we'd order again. The fries here are addictive too. "The Embers" tequila & grapefruit was our cocktail of choice, though the wine list is impressive. Service is upscale, and friendly :) Thank you Taylor and staff for a great visit, we'll be back soon!

    I appreciate the dim lighting, 90s r/b hip-hop, wine list and attempt at interesting menu. It’s punishingly expensive for what you get, as in the $40 lobster hot dog that’s pretty much a breakfast sausage in a coop brioche bun. Still, it would be a place reasonable to consider at least for drinks but our evening was ruined by two women blasting a selfie light and camera phones over their food and subsequently in to our faces the entire time we were there. Who were they? Exactly. Just some randoms with main character syndrome. The wait staff fawned over them rather than give a thought to how rude and intrusive it was to the entire room. So, no will not return and will not recommend. Hope all those insta clicks are worth it because our real cash will be spent elsewhere

    Loved the waitstaff, particularly our server. Love the idea of Vendome during the day and this seafood/ wine bar resto in the evening. A variety of seafood but also a great fried chicken sandwich, eggplant Parmesan, and non seafood offerings. The music was quit loud in a small crowded slace with no noise absorption it was somewhat difficult to carry on a convention. The request to turn down the speaker beside us was not entertained by management. Would still go back but maybe for a first or last seating when it might be a bit more subdued. Really enjoyed our evening.
    Clos de la Oyster BarreResponded on October 28, 2023
    Hi Moira! Thanks for your feedback ! We consider the volume/genres of music we play and dark, candlelit ambience to be a big part of the experience at our restaurant, and receive a lot of great feedback on them, but I recognize it isn't the feel everyone is looking for. We don't make adjustments to the music in the moment based on what we hear from one group, but I do absolutely try to listen to how people are generally enjoying it. We have adopted playing less 'intense' hip hop and funk prior to 730pm. I'm not sure I would say it's 'quiet', but it might be more what you're looking for. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the service, and the food! If you have any additional feedback to share, or if I can assist with making a future reservation, please reach out - Taylor@teatrogroup.ca .

    I’m still craving the fried chicken sandwich! The eggplant dish was dreamy and delicious too. Oysters were tasty. The beef fat fries were the best I’ve ever had in my life - beautifully crispy on the outside and soft and melty inside. There were so many things on that menu I still need to try!
