The Deanne House is exceptional in every regard; first class cuisine using organic produce, beautiful setting whether you dine inside or outside in the garden; staff are pleasant and knowledgeable. Regardless how busy the restaurant, you never have to wait for your meal. Deanne House is hard to beat!

Great place for lunch on the patio. We shared the charcuterie and it was way over priced at $32 for what was provided.

Our visit to Dean house was nice. The main dishes were tasty and the food came quickly. Our server was reasonably attentive and deserving of a good tip. It's a great option to sit on the patio on a summer day and enjoy brunch. My only complaints are as follows:

1. I ordered a hot chocolate without first noticing it was priced at $8. I object to a hot chocolate costing more than coffee to begin with, but beyond that the drink I was given wasn't enjoyable. I was expecting something that was rich and decadent with whipped creamed and possibly chocolate shavings on top. What I received was a poorly mixed chunky powdered mess. I'd at least think for that price they'd make the hot chocolate from scratch or mix the powder properly. It wasn't even very tasty because I kept encountering bitter pockets of hot chocolate powder. I wouldn't order the hot chocolate if I went back.
2. At one point, the street construction noise became overwhelmingly loud with some kind of pounding or drilling. I realize this is out of Dean house' control, however it definitely affected my enjoyment of the ambience.

Nice location, good ambiance, fantastic food! Maybe a pit pricey, but sometimes you get what you pay for.
Waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive.

We had the Sunday Dinner, which I thought was good value, and as a bonus - Live Jazz!!!

How can you go wrong?

Overall great evening. Some small things would have made it better.
- leaving long stems on the local greens made them more difficult to eat
- Risotto dish was excellent in so many ways except that it was too salty
- We waited with our entrees in front of us for too long before receiving the glass of wine we had ordered with the our meal.

There is no air conditioning that was noticeable for a hot evening.
There were tons of flies that were bothering us and alighting on our food through the meal.
The ginger beets had virtual no beets inside; it was all dough and the taste was very sharp.
The dessert of the cheese cake and the green tea ice cream really didn't taste like such should go together-our bad for choosing I guess.
The rest of the food was only OK certainly not to say wow over any dish.
Our service was not particularly attentive or memorable.
The water when served was lukewarm and not cold.
Have had much better experiences here before.

We went for their 3 course Sunday supper special. Very odd advertising as our server suggested we may want an appetizer as the “3 courses” all come at once and are fish potatoes (same plate) and salad. Menu offers many lovely choices but the Sunday supper offers no special value.

Food wasn’t fantastic, ambience was ok, temperature was very cold, waiter wasn’t particularly engaging. I come from a service background, and I was overall very unimpressed. Value for money was very low. I’m a bit of a foodie, so I get paying a little more for something unique and tasty. This was not it!

The restaurant is beautiful and cozy. Located in a very old property and well kept. Service was excellent. Very attentive and on point. Dishes some were excellent others ok. Halibut was slightly over cooked. Definitely recommend the beats and lamb. A bit overpriced for not having perfectly cooked fish. Would go back order other great items. Dessert was really nice.

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!
