We did the Chef’s tasting menu and was disappointed that almost every dish had peas, a lot of them, and that the proteins were so small for $100 a person. The halibut was a 1”x1” cube and the lamb tenderloin were 4 .5”,.5” bits. The risotto, fish, and halibut were dwarfed by the amount of peas used on the plate. All in all we really only had peas for our meal. I appreciate the need to use what you have, but other vegetables would have made the dishes much better, or at the very least to change the preparation from plate to plate.

The Deane House is the former home of the Superintendent of the Northwest Mounted Police, and the oldest home in Calgary. But the building is newly restored and modernized with state of the art dining. A unique aspect is the patio dining at the confluence of the Elbow and Bow rivers. Given the first class food and service, there isn't a better dining spot in town.

My husband and I were visiting from Maine and invited 2 friends to join us at Deane House. The night before our dinner we learned that their son would be joining us so I called Deane House the morning of our dinner and not only did they find room for an additional person in our party, but they put us in a beautiful glassed in sunporch. If that wasn't bad enough, we were leaving for home the next day and had to be out of the restaurant by 8:15 when our reservation began at 6. Our server, Annie Clare (sp?), the cooks, and everyone else put a rush on everything and we had a fantastic meal We never felt rushed, the food was creative, delicious, beautifully presented and the entire experience was so worthwhile. I highly recommend Deane House for special occasions, for just wanting to enjoy creatively prepared food that still respects that this is a meal, not a test for how many flavors you can put in one dish. The stinging nettle broth was a totally new experience for all of us, and one I will try to repeat, and my risotto was the perfect consistency with an occasional piece of, I think, pickled sea beans that added a sharpness when it was part of the mouthful of risotto. Our friend's son, who is a picky eater, ate all of his appetizer, main course, and dessert...we joked that he would have licked the plate clean if we weren't watching. Portland Maine is considered a major "foodie" city, and I used to be a cook so qualify as a foodie, and I can't think of a place as creative, attractive, and just plain nice as Deane House. Go!

We waited about 45 minutes for the main course after the starters.

Absolutely wonderful place. The service was amazing, she was attentive and checked in between every course to make sure we had everything we needed. We had the tasting menu so we got to try a little bit of everything. I’ve had set menus before where I’ve left feeling not completely full, but not here! Completely worth it- we will be back. Thank you for making our anniversary so special.

We had a fantastic time. We got the tasting menu for the two of us and it was exquisite! Our server was kind, friendly and very fun. The tasting menu was new within the last 3-4 days and I’m sure it will be a hit! We got a bottle of orange wine to go with out meal, the sommelier recommended it and it was a lovely addition and paired well enough with the courses. We ended up getting a complimentary drink of port as there was a bit of a mixup with the wine towards the end of our meal and it was greatly appreciated. We also received an oyster amuse bouche which was a fantastic little surprise :)

The team at Deane house are professional, charming and we will absolutely be coming back again! Can’t wait for brunch ;)

Thank you all for a fantastic evening filled with joy and amazing Canadian food!

It’s our first time at Deane House and it was such a great dining experience. The place itself is beautiful on the outside. We were in awe of the gardens. The inside is being thrown back in Victorian time. The food was great. We had the brunch menu. We started of with the baked goods. The danish is to die for. I had the buttermilk chicken with lentils, mole sauce and fried mushrooms and sweet potatoes. The chicken was properly cooked. Juicy on the inside and crispy skin. The meal was well balanced. My partner had the rainbow trout and chips. The fish was fresh. The chips were cooked correctly and well seasoned. Because it’s fish and chips, the only missing piece is a dollop of tartar sauce. The young man who served us was really nice and personable.
