We have been to the Deane House several times and the food is always excellent. Strangely the house was not decorated for Christmas which was a disappointment, as we had planned a festive brunch with friends. We got to the restaurant and we stood at the host/hostess station for a few minutes; there was no acknowledgement by other staff or any hostess. We finally noticed her sitting at the bar on her phone. This was quite odd as we are used to great service at the Deane House. We decided to look for our friends and they were already seated. Our server gave great service which made up for this hiccup. We all had the Trout Benedict with a side of bacon to share. The included hash browns were somewhat overfried but otherwise our meal was stellar.

Reserved a table for two, and we were placed in a room with a very noisy table of 8, against a wall. I could not hear my partner speaking for the majority of the meal, had to ask waitress to repeat herself etc. Food was overall good.

If you reserve, ask for a table along the farthest west wall of the restaurant. Overall somewhat disappointed with my experience. Would recommend the restaurant rethink seating in that area.

If you are looking for a relaxing dining experience, it doesn't really fill the bill. It "may" be more so when not sitting near the bar area, but not the soft atmosphere/music that I expected.

I wanted to go here because of the old house aspect of it that it used to have. The renos, while they look nice have dampened that part of the ambience.

I think my boar tenderloin was undercooked, I would have considered it in the rare category and too rare for my taste. They don't serve a Vodka and orange, because they only serve fruit that are in season.
I would not consider going back

Our get-together for a birthday celebration was five stars for everything! The special room at the front was wonderful for viewing the scenery outside and was quiet enough to easily carry on a conversation. The server was very knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly. The food was delicious. The chicken dish for two was simply amazing! There was so much yummy food. Will definitely return but I’m afraid the bar has been set so high now. 😃👌

The Deane House defines class. A bit like the Fairmont that way. Not for normal - something special, but not too formal either. Crisp, clean, and service - right there. We split the Danish, eggs benedict, and sausage. Lots of food for two. Relaxed … spent a lot of time watching the squirrel in the tree adjacent the window - I guess that pretty much says it all. Looking forward to next time.

The Deane House has historical significance for Calgary and is in a beautiful location near the river, lovely gardens. The menu is very interesting and provides lots of variety with some unusual dishes. I found the service to be excellent and the food well prepared and presented. Their Red Fife sourdough bread is fantastic!

Really cute place! Took my boyfriend to Sunday brunch for his birthday and the food came out perfect and in a timely manner, server and staff was very sweet and helpful. The only "complaint" I have is how squishy it is, you're really close to other people sitting around you I find but overall I was not that bothered. The price is high however I find that it is reasonable for the food that you are served (quality food).

Recommend Deane Hpuse to anyone looking for a special place to take your significant other. Try the spatchcock chicken and smoked fingerling potatoes by the way. To die for!

It had been a while since we were last there - what with the Floods of 2013 and the renovation of the site ... which may or may not have been related.
None the less, we had not been there for a while and there were some changes that had occurred.
These were not bad, there was just some differences.
New Chef and the physical layout of the restaurant were the most notable of changes.It went from more of a Tea House to a French influenced dining spot.
You still have the level view of the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers as well as the Fort Calgary site.
The staff were attentive to our needs and desires. Especially important, we were asked if we had any food allergies that needed to be considered.
Both the Beverage and meal menus were diverse and there were options for most palates.
The Trout Fish and Chips and the Grass finished Beef were our choices for the Mains.
Enjoyed the Local Brown Ale - sorry can't remember the name - with the Dinner.

Sadly my experience at Deane House was less than stellar. Having had a bad experience once and hoping it was a one-off, some girlfriends and I gave it another chance with brunch.

It started off poorly as we didn't get the table we wanted by the window. That table then sat empty for most of our meal. The service was incredibly slow, except for asking us if we wanted more drinks. Given the fact that it was noon and we were driving, no, we didn't want endless ($11) drinks, we wanted our food. The food itself was mediocre. I ordered a smoked char benedict and there was either 1) no char or 2) it had no flavor.

Given the prices and the stunning building, Deane House needs to do better. To top it all off, the napkins smelled so musty and made us all question the rest of the hygiene practices of the restaurant. Sadly, I won't be back.

Decided to try it out for dinner.
Since I don’t eat red meat or chicken, had fish and chips. My husband had lamb dish. What can I say, a lot of talk from the waiter how great of a process it was to make those fries, but definitely “no action in taste”. Definitely not worth the $30. Little fish in a big, very crispy lump of dough. No taste at all.
When asked my husband “would you go back there again?”..,his answer was a simple “no”. The house itself is very nice, with history. Loved the ambiance though, just not the good. It’s only good for a glass of wine after a long day of work. Definitely will never go back.

Was awesome, but a bit too cold inside. We had to move and our server was a bit off on making sure we were out by 7:30 for a show after. We didn't get out until closer to 7:45. Our show was at 8:00 so we felt rushed during our main course.

My granddaughter has wanted to go for years because of the ghost history, and I took her finally for her 12th birthday. The staff, including the manager herself the bartender and our server all went out of their way to give her the full experience, from a personalized ghost tour to her very own mock tail at the bar . Thank you for giving her a night to remember for years to come.
