We went there for Father’s Day brunch. Food, service and atmosphere (Jazz band playing) was amazing! We sat outside and enjoyed the enchanting gardens 💝
Our server (never caught her name - red hair) was very attentive and friendly. Appreciate all the care that goes into the food, you can tell. Overall lovely brunch, I am plotting my return. Thanks, Renata
Wonderful from start to finish. Can’t wait to go back.
Great service, we sat in the sun room and it was very quiet. Perfect place for Sunday brunch!
Great with the exception of a large party that was creating a lot of noise.
Food and service top notch as usual
Offers a great wine list and lots of food typical for the area. Attentive and knowledgeable service, a really nice room (old house separated into spaces) and a really lovely garden.
Had a great date night out, we wish we’d had a meal just of appetizers, they were delicious! (The perogies and hummus). Mains were good too but not as outstanding as the appetizers
The menu was interesting with food pairings that are not typically seen. The price was a bit high for what you got, but the flavour blends were excellent. The service was phenomenal and the front room was peaceful and had a wonderful view of the garden.
I was not impressed this time as I have been for two other occasions.
The oysters could have been fresher and larger for the price.
The tuna dish (sauce) was too acidic.
The Monogram coffee was also on the acidic side; part of Calgary's search for the fruitiest, acidic coffee. What a ridiculous trend.
Finally we were bothered by flies. We repeatedly had to shoo them away while we were eating lunch. A one hundred dollar lunch does not deserve that.
We had a great time. We had an early dining experience as we wanted to have quiet conversation. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and easy to get in a conversation with. The manager paid a visit to our table and we shared some good humour. Looking forward to returning. Thanks to all.
We booked a table for Sunday brunch on the patio for the live jazz music. I had made a note in my booking that we were there specifically for the music and to celebrate a special occasion. Sadly it rained that day, it would have been great if the restaurant called and let me know that the music would be cancelled. I would have re-booked for another day. Upon arrival to the Deane House our table was not ready and we had to sit at the bar and wait - which was fine. We were served coffee while we waited. My milk was curdled - not the end of the world but when the server brought my curdled coffee/milk to the table I had to ask for a new one. I asked for decaf and was told I'd need to wait 15 minutes. When we were ready to order our server was pretty clueless about the menu. We asked if the soup of the day was cream or clear broth and he said had no idea! My guest ordered the duck soup regardless but the server never came back to clarify what we were going to get. We had been drinking sparkling water at the beginning of the meal and he refilled our glasses with flat, again not the end of the world but we really expected more attention to detail from the staff at a restaurant of this caliber. I ordered the yogurt and granola to start, it was delicious! It would have been nice if the server described the ingredients to us before he took off though... He was really not interested in what he was doing or passionate about offering quality customer service. My guest and I both ordered the halibut cakes. They were OK- very filling but quite dry. I took one of mine home to doctor up myself later in the day. As I mentioned before, I had made a note in the booking that we were celebrating but no one asked what we were celebrating or if we wanted anything special for our brunch. When the bill came we noticed that we were both charged double for our coffees - I guess you have to pay for a new one if milk curdles or for each refill?? We were pretty disjointed. Probably wont be back
The only regret you will have is that you didn't come here sooner. Sitting out on the terrace felt like having brunch at a garden in Paris.
Try the Arctic Char Eggs Benedict. You have never had anything like it.
Fantastic gourmet "from scratch" cuisine ... wonderful ambience ..
Great service. Beautiful plating of delicious tasting dishes. It was our first time there and I would definitely go back again. House baked bread was amazing.
Lovely lunch. Perogies were delicious. Halibut cakes were a bit bland.. great service
Food and service were excellent. Only negative is the seating - I am sure I am not the only one who does not want to be so close to other people. The bench seating may be popular but you really have no privacy.
A bit pricey and although unique menu perhaps some choices a bit more traditional
Enjoyed a lovely dinner on Tuesday night. It wasn't nice enough to sit outside, but we sat in the closed in porch overlooking the river. Lovely! Both the duck breast and perogy appetizer were absolutely delicious. The service wasn't a little slow and 2 orders of wine were missed from our bill. I did point out the incorrect bill so that the server wouldn't be responsible. Maybe she was new. Anyway, I highly recommend the Dean House. It is a lovely setting, with great food and typically great service.
Deane House was on our list of ‘must try’ for awhile and I can’t believe we waited so long. The food is very high quality and prepared in a way that highlights each ingredient. We went for brunch on a weekend and the patio is top 10 in Calgary for sure (especially since you can cycle right up from the river pathway!).
Beautiful patio space and great service, thank you for the great experience.
I went with my mom for a late mother’s day celebration, and it was hands-down the best meal I have ever had. I had one of their signature cocktails, the “Little Oasis in the Desert” - a nice kick of rose gin balanced with beautiful citrus, sherbert, and brut style sparkling wine while Mom had a blonde ale. We shared the appetizer special (asparagus salad - asparagus done three ways with a perfectly balanced green goddess dressing) and then she had the halibut (sous vide perfectly and served with a beautifully creamy buttermilk sauce, fiddlehead ferns, and fluffy gnocchi) and I had the duck breast (with crispy skin and the fat rendered beautifully, charred endive, pickled rhubarb, and gnocchi). The flavors of everything were unbelievable - succulent, tart, bitter in all the right ways. We shared the cheesecake for dessert, and I am a cheesecake LOVER. Let me tell you, it is the best cheesecake I have ever had. It was so silky, almost mousse like, with a tart berry reduction and a lovely oat crumble. Yum. To top it all off, beautiful views from the veranda, and a sweet and knowledgeable server who ensured our visit was sublime. Will definitely go back!
Very nice, quaint atmosphere for brunch. Food was very good
Fantastic meal. Fantastic crew.
Amazing experience-great food and service was awesome.
Decided on the Deane House for a combined Mothers Day and Birthday occasion. We have had several dinners at Deane House and it never disappoints. Started with the Steak Tartar. It was great. Had the Spatchcock Chicken for 2 and it was amazing. So juicy, tender, and flavourful. I would have it again for sure. The pea pirogies were perfect for our vegetarian. The service was outstanding as usual and our wine selection was top notch. I would recommend for all occasions and kids would certainly enjoy.
Great atmosphere and we are planning to go on most of the occasions
Enjoyed celebrating Mother's Day on their beautiful patio.
Went for brunch and had a great dining experience the Crabapple mimosas are to die for. The staff was kind and even let us do a little impromptu viewing of the building when we requested for its historical attributes.
After our meal we sat at the bar for a drink, the bar keep Jimmy was a good guy with a really cool knowledge of the cocktail craft.
Would recommend and definitely will revisit!
Lovely, sunny patio seats and very fresh flavoured brunch items. Great!
Amazing! The food was fantastic the service was friendly and very attentive. Would highly recommend
The Deane house delivers as one of the top restaurants in Calgary. The menu is very inviting. The service was amazing. The food is top notch. Highly recommended.
Service was great. Took a long time to get our main course. Duck was great (though not a large portion) lamb was just average (tough to cut).
Amazing experience. Very good service and great food. All staff is very friendly and approachable.
Very expensive evening is the only downfall. It was worth the investment for a special birthday though.
One of our favorite spots in the city!
15/10 Cant wait to come back. Polish Jerry was a great personality. Service was among the best in Calgary. Food was even better.
Our server Jerry was very professional and he did his best to ensure we had a pleasant experience... although he did that the appetizers and entrees were a bit disappointing and allergy’s at the table were not accommodated, we were very clear about what they were. Food portions very small we had to eat at the next place we were attending cause we were still hungry.
Outstanding experience at The Dean House. The food presentation was impressive and quality and quantity were perfect. The service was attentive throughout. Fantastic for a special occasion!
We really enjoyed the atmosphere, however we found it difficult both hearing and understanding our waitress (Treasure). I ordered the Leg of Lamb, I was not impressed, it was tough. My wife shared the Chicken for Two with another lady. We felt was rather expensive. Our table was across from the bar, the noise from the bartender shaking the drinks was a bit loud. All in all I feel we will be back, we love the ambiance.
