The gluten free desert alone makes the visit worthwhile!
We both ordered the Lunch express, it is such a good deal. Soup was Roasted Tomato and Chickpea; tasty and comforting on a near fall day. Main was Cod in Green Curry with Kohlrabi and Garlic Chips; just the right size for lunch, the curry was as I like it, a righteous blend of creamy and spicy that soothes and makes you pay attention. Compliments to our server who knew to bring out a soup spoon; this dish would not be properly enjoyed if eaten with a fork. Dessert for gluten gobblers was a cookie I have do doubt was delicious...however we gluten avoidant were served a perfectly proportioned Chocolate Caramel Mousse Barre topped with Sea Foam Crunchy Toffee... oh la la! so mouth-wateringly good!
This was my second lunch-time visit to Donna Mac and I wonder why I let so much time go by between visits. Will not allow that to happen again.
Thank you for the amazing review! We are so glad you enjoyed and hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
Lots of great options on the menu, but about 4 items were unavailable and it was Saturday evening when we visited. The food itself was very good.
Hi Thank you for the review. Your are absolutely right, Saturday was abnormally busy and because we prep everything daily we did run out of a few items. Hopefully you were still able to enjoy! Cheers
Went for a bite and sat at the bar - phenomenal service from the bartender thats recently returned Halifax! Would come back 10/10
Hi Michael So glad you enjoyed! I will pass on your kind words to our bartender. Hope to see you again soon Cheers!
A new place for us, a group of 6 women who dine out a few times a year. Well worth the evening. Thanks! (ps. we all loved the aprons worn by the wait staff!).
Hi Kaza Thank you very much for the great review! I'm so glad you enjoyed your evening with us. Hope to see you again soon! Cheers
The service was welcoming and excellent. The menu is very good and varied. The room has a simple elegant ambience. Only one minir critism was that my octopus dish was a little oversalted but very tasty regardless. Will definitely return with my wife for another date night.
Thank you so much for the great feedback. I will pass it along and we hope to see you again soon Cheers
Wonderful food and presentation service was excellent. I will use Donna Mac again for a business lunch and would recommend it to my colleagues.
Hi Annamarie Thank you for the great review! Hope to you again soon.
The food is absolutely delicious! Very good experience overall and good service. I have been there a few times and was never disappointed.
Hi Suzanne Thank you very much for the great review! We are glad you enjoyed and hope to see you again soon. Cheers
The food is amazing. I am picky when it comes to tapa style restaurants but I loved every dish. I've been wanting to go for a while and it did not disappoint! Would recommend for dates, girls night out dinners or special occasions.
Hi Kristine Thank you very much for the great review! We are glad you enjoyed and hope you can join us again soon. Cheers
We really enjoyed our time there. We've been wanting to go for some time and we are so happy that we were able to. The brussel sprout salad and tuna crudo were excellent. Great vegetarian options. We will definitely go back.
Hi Thank you for the great review. So glad you enjoyed and we hope to see you again. Cheers!
We brought our newborn and were lucky enough to get the back corner to ourselves, so there was lots of room for the stroller. It was noisy because it's so open, but we could hear ourselves talk. The food was excellent and so was the service.
Hi Kurt I'm so glad you and your new family enjoyed! Hope to see you again soon. Cheers
I’ve been to this place twice in a week - each meal was completely different. Each meal is incredibly tasty and presented beautifully. The cocktails are delicious as well.
Hi Emma Thank you for the great review! Hope to see you again soon. Cheers
Was there celebrating a birthday......mentioned it in reservation, thought restaurant might do something, nope., anyhow service was very good, very creative menu, changes frequently, lots of veggie dishes great for sharing, best dish was there Cod so moist
Did not think much of their sourdough bread, very bland......disappointed they didn’t have an actual Mac and cheese dish, I also thought their beet salad was decent
It was decent... the squid was more lime a vegetable dish with a couple pieces of squid so that was disappointing and the risotto was more like a soup. Our server was on point, probably the best server I have ever had. She made the experience, didn’t catch her name unfortunately
Incredible food and service!
Thank you very much for the great review! Hope to see you again soon
Food presentation and flavour was excellent. Prices were a bit high, and options were a bit limited especially for entrees.
Gluten free options were clear and a decent amount of choices. This is why we chose the place, the GF options were clear and enough choices.
Love that dog friendly patio and half off wine!
Well we love dogs too! And wine too actually See you again soon
Maybe the best hidden gem in Calgary. Great design, friendly/knowledgeable staff and amazing food.
Hi Chad Thank you for the great review! We hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
Brunch was delicious 👌🏻
Thanks Annie! Glad you enjoyed
Casual and laid back yet super lovely are 3 things to describe the place. We tired the Summer Feast menu and wasn’t disappointed!
Everything was tasty and our server was friendly and unobtrusive.
We will be back!
Thank you very much for a great review! We are glad you enjoyed and hope to see you again soon. Cheers
We went for the summer feast YYC menu. The restaurant is really pretty, the service was great, and the cocktails were delicious. Some very strong and interesting flavors with the lamb as well as the mushroom truffle toast. I will come again!
Thank you for such a great review! Hope to see you again soon. Cheers
Excellent as always!
Fantastic service and the express lunch was amazing!
Thank you very much for the great review! We hope to see you again soon Cheers

So glad you enjoyed! Hope to see you again soon
3rd time in 5 weeks ... loved our lunch, service and ambiance ...

My husband and I went to Donna Mac yesterday to celebrate our anniversary. Wow
Food was perfection and the service was excellent!
Hi Mandy Thank you for the great review! We hope to see you again soon.
This fussy vegetarian is always challenged with dining out.
Donna Mac has the kind of menu that will keep me coming back.
And the wine list was also good, which is another must have for this leaf-eating, old world red, lover.
Great service - attentive but not over bearing.
Hi Karen I am so glad you enjoyed! We will always have our vegetarian friends covered. See you again soon. Cheers
Definitely my favorite spot in Calgary at the moment. Excellent food! Unassuming decor. Superb service.
Thank you so much for the great review! Hope to see you again soon.
Fantastic Menu, service and ambiance!!! I'll return again soon for sure!
Hi Chris Thank you for the great review! See you again soon
Great vegan options, delicious food and fabulous service. Will be back!
Thank you for the great review! Hope to see you again soon Vicki!
Please do something about the noise, hard to hear my dinner guest. A sound dampening system in the ceiling might be a good start.
Hi Lindsay Thank you for the feedback. We actually do have dampeners on the ceiling already but on a Saturday it can get boisterous for sure. We can always turn down the music in your area for you if you and your guests find it a bit too loud. Hope to see you again soon!
Outstanding meal, super creative, veg friendly and the sharing format allows you to try lots of different things. The cauliflower with pimento is a real winner as is the risotto and the Humboldt squid. Although a little noisy, we’ll be back soon - it was so good.
Thank you for the great review. Hope to see you again soon!
Great food! Love the menu style of small plate sharing.
Hi Rachel I'm so happy you enjoyed your visit. Hope to see you again soon!
As vegetarians we greatly appreciate the choice and quality of your menu. The food is excellent and beautifully prepared and presented...
Hi Catherine I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit with us! We will always have lots of great options for you! Hope to see you again soon. Cheers
Always a treat to go to Donna Mac. Food is exceptional, ambiance is second to none. It is a beautiful spot with great hospitality and amazing food. Have been here plenty and will continue to visit as its top notch.
Hi Krystle. Thank you for the great review. Hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
My new favorite place! Menu selection is just right, the flavors of each dish are complimentary. Good wine selection and the staff are friendly, but not overly social.
Hi Shelley Thank you for the great review. We are so glad you enjoyed and we hope to see you again soon. Cheers
Great food and great service! Outstanding value and excellent selection of dry cocktails!
Hi Chris Thank you for the great review! Hope to see you again soon. Cheers
Went for brunch on a Sunday morning to celebrate a birthday and we had phenomenal service from Ben. Delicious food, a great environment, and wonderful staff.
I'm so glad you enjoyed. We agree, Ben is the best! Hope to see you again soon!
