The food was outstanding. The service was polite and impeccable. The ginger beets were unique, every bite of the beef with bubble and squeak was a collision of rich taste and the duck was great! We will be back.

Please read my whole review for the entire experience story.

My fiancée and I went out to celebrate his 25th birthday. I made a reservation, and up until the end of our meal, everything was great. The food was pretty good, and the service was great.

They found out it was my fiancee’s birthday and that we had cake at home so we didn’t ask for dessert. They were kind enough to bring out something small, and told us it was “on the house”. Please keep reading to find out how that went...

Near the end of the meal, it became apparent that they had served me a broken water glass and I got a shard of glass in my hand. I was bleeding and there was glass still physically lodged in my hand.

I went in to show a server and to obtain some first aid stuff to get it out. Everyone was very apologetic, but I found it quite concerning that they didn’t have any tweezers to get the glass out. I was given an unsterile safety pin to dig the glass out with. I had to sterilize it with some spray they gave me and then further rip my skin off to get the glass out. I was bleeding quite badly, as I had to rip my skin off to get it out.

After this ordeal was over, I was told getting glass in my hand was worth their “friends and family discount” and I was given less than $10 off of a $100 meal. Furthermore, the dessert they told me that was “on the house” was now on my bill and I had to pay for it. I was frustrated enough at this point that I didn’t say anything and I just paid.

I can see how these errors were a series of unfortunate events, but I feel pretty ripped off, as I was forced to pay for something we didn’t ask for. Additionally, we had planned to go to some virtual reality gaming and I lost out on a good chunk of the $50 I spent, because my hand was sore and constantly bleeding when I tried to use the controllers.

I’m pretty frustrated and likely wouldn’t go back.

Food was lovely.
Service was friendly.

The only problem was that a quiet table was requested due to my father’s hearing problem but they placed us right by a service station, and a hallway intersection so it was particularly loud.

I have enjoyed a few wonderful restaurants over the years and I will say now, this is a top five!!
The food was amazing, a variety of entrees including Vegan, many farm to table items too. The presentation on plate was perfect...nothing overloaded and not full of pretty flowers.
The Wine list should fit every budget. There is a excellent Burrowing Owl Merlot from B.C., a good selection of Italian and French wines too. The Pastry Chef at Deane House certainly has imagination and knows how to fill the bill with quality deserts.
Now, I must say that my two guest and I were frankly blown away by the service. Amy knows how to tell stories about any entre or desert. She exemplifies a true hostess/server who wants you to enjoy your adventure. We'd all return to Deane House just to have Amy explain the menu one more time. This person deserves a 10 + 10.

We very much enjoyed the tasting menu that was part of the YYC promotion. The quality of the dishes was very good and creative. The service was exceptionally good. We didn't follow the wine pairing and sampled from the quite extensive wine list. The setting overlooking the confluence of the Bow and Elbow is quite stunning.

Pros: Inspirational veggies and veggie combinations. Everyone in our party of 4 was delighted with their main course. Special diet requirements: no problem. Realistic portions. Unpretentious service.

Cons: Plates were not always explained. Fruit aspects of desserts were a bit blah, not to the standard of other elements, but by that point in the meal forgiveness was plentiful, as everything else was top notch.

Mindblowing: Canola seed wafer.

The big taste menu last year was much better than the one this year. Soup last year was so good and that’s why I had high hopes for this year as well.

Main menu had pork slices which had strong pork smell. Caramelized onion underneath the pork was overcooked. And clam did not go very well with the pork.

I’d just go with the regular menu next time.

Enjoying a lovely lunch with a dear friend - in a sunny porch on a bitterly cold day. What a way to forget about winter and embrace a moment of sheer joy. The food was delicious and even better with the deliciously crisp unoaked chardonnay. Definitely a special place that will transform an ordinary day to extraordinary. Thanks for an lovely dining experience.

Had a late Valentines dinner with Deane House on Sunday, February 17th. We were greeted at the door quickly, and by numerous staff. Coats were checked and off to our table. Had it not been -4000 outside our window seat looking onto the patio would have been perfect. Server was fast, efficient, and friendly. While we would have liked a bit of history on the location, and perhaps a bit more information on our “Sunday Dinner” choice, the menu laid everything out beautifully. Beer selection was mildly entertaining, but the wine list was very nice, and had I not been driving I may still be there drinking Vino!

Dinner was served family style, and was delicious. Beets, Barley, a delicious Jus, and perfectly Mid Rare Prime Rib. Our accompanying salad was also incredibly tasty.

For the price ($45 per person), you really couldn’t ask for better Value for a Sunday date night.

My only grievance may have been the cumin bomb that the beets secretely held inside. I’m assuming Chef makes a new dinner every Sunday (or so), and I’m sure it was a hit at other tables, so it’s not a big deal.

I will definitely recommend this place at work, and with family and friends!

Thanks Deane House!
