Had a wonderful dinner of 3 shared dishes. The asparagus, the broccoli and the cod. All were very delicious and provided wonderful and unique flavors.
Will definitely be going back.
Thank you so much for the great review! We hope to see you again soon
Bright and relaxed dinning room, causal but classy. All the dishes were great and service was super friendly.
Thank you very much for the great review! We are glad you enjoyed and we hope to see you again soon.
Although the space is beautiful and our server was alright at her job they weren't overly diligent in checking on us/ensuring we were enjoying everything. The food was mediocre at best, starter toast just tasted burnt, risotto had zero flavor and the tomatoes were so doused in spice they were a tad difficult to get down. I really wanted to like this place since they are offering a diverse vegan menu, beautiful interior wise and local but unfortunately it was a massive let down.
Hi Katherine Thank you for your honesty about your experience with us. I feel disappointed that this was your take away from your time with us as that is not what we strive for. I will follow up with your server as well as the kitchen. I hope that you will give us another chance as this is not the norm for us. If you would like to chat further I can be reached at email@example.com Thank you
Very good ambience and service. But, people go there for food and that's lacking. Donna Mac is doing similar things as 10 Ft Henry which is not too far away. It has a smaller menu but the cooking and presentation are not nearly as good. The Mac and Cheese was a bit dry and it was an effort to finish. I would try again hoping that it was just an off night.
Hi Andrew Thank you for letting us know about your experience. I will follow up with kitchen about your concerns. We do hope to see you again. Thank you
We ordered 6 different dishes. There were 4 amazing dishes, the two that lacked where the broccoli and the hanger steak. The hanger steak just lacked in seasoning. Could have used some salt, but luckily the pickled onion saved it and gave it some acidity.
Would go again!
Hi Rosalyn Thank you for the great feedback! Hope to see you again soon. Cheers
Eat before you go:) Need to add veggies or something to all meat dishes.
I appreciated our being given a quiet corner as I had requested. Food was very good.
Thank you for the great review Sarah. So glad you enjoyed!
Love the plant forward dining. It really helps when you are dining with somebody who is Celiac and having Chef's who are hypervigilant about cross contamination is really important. It was refreshing, making vegetables the centerpiece of dishes and being really creative with flavors. Personally I am not a vegetarian but I certainly do enjoy having meat being a smaller part of my diet so this place works a treat! I have been looking for a place like this in Calgary and have now found it. My only gripe was I could not get a cheeky red for under 10 dollars so I skipped out on having a drink but that didn't dampen the experience. Will be back in the future! Thanks!
Hi Darius So glad you enjoyed your experience with us! We hope to see you soon and we will look into a cheeky little red for you!
Overall a great night ... food, service and time spent with friends!
Thank you very much for the great review! Hope to see you again soon.
brilliant! ... the restaurant exceeded my expectations - the decor is stunning + the risotto is a new favourite! viva la vegan 💚
Thank you so much for the kind review! Glad you enjoyed and we hope to see you again soon. Cheers
Very good food in a bright yet warm setting
Staff are excellent at explaining the menu and making recommendations.
Menu options make for an interesting dinner.
Thank you for the kind review! Hope we see you again soon.
Overall the dishes we ordered were flavorful and lovingly presented. The chicken we ordered however was $ 28 and consisted of a thigh and bone on 1/2 breast. There was barely any meat and we were worried it was undercooked. I just would not order that again, but overall the food was amazing and service on point.
Hi Stefanie Thank you for your feedback. The chicken is sous vide so does retain a bit of pink near the bone while still being perfectly safe but I will pass along the information about the portion sizes as we never want you to feel like you didn't receive the value you were looking for. Hope to see you again!
Really good food. Awesome service.
They got read of the vegan burger, and I had such a craving for that 😢
Hi Catalina We have decided to stop carrying the beyond burger as we are trying to eliminate products that we don't make in house off the menu. We have added a lot more vegan options to both lunch and dinner. Hopefully you enjoyed despite your disappointment.
I was there on Monday for my 3rd meal in 3 weeks!!!! Fabulous, original food. My girl friend and I shared several dishes where my husband and I enjoyed individual entrees.
I'm so glad you enjoyed! Hope we see you every week!
Love the food in this restaurant. So many layers of flavour. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Love the relaxed atmosphere. We make a point of coming here every visit to Calgary. Thanks again Amy.
Thank you so much for coming and for the great review!
Food was quick, flavourful and hot. Not sure what more I could ask for, Service was quite good.
Thank you so much for the great review! Hope to see you again soon
Quite a limited menu with nothing sounding really appetizing. Good thing I asked to describe the “pork salad”. Server said it was pork tongue. What a way to lose your appetite. She said I could substitute chicken which I did. Very average at best. Trying to be creative with the menu but nothing sounded mouth watering.
We come to Donna Mac almost once a week, sometimes just for a drink. The service is always amazing!
Thank you very much for the kind review! We will see you soon.
A unique menu bursting with flavour and excellent service.
Hi Andrew Thank you for the review. Hope to see you again soon!
Recommend only with reservations-waitress spoke too fast, menu unpleasing. Sausage? Really tough and spatzle underdone. First visit 1 mo ago was fantastic. What happened? Like your space decor...
Amazing service at Donna Mac. Our server was knowledgable, accommodating and funny. We had a really enjoyable time on the patio with friends. The cocktails and drinks were delicious and the food was so good.
Thank you very much for the great review! Hope to see you again soon.
We went for me and my friend’s birthday and the food was amazing. The service was awesome - I didn’t catch our waitress name but she was so kind. She even bought us a birthday dessert! She was very thoughtful! Thank you for such a great dining experience!!
Hi Thank you for the great review! So glad you enjoyed and we hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
We were there on a busy lunch hour. Food was amazing. Speed was spectacular.
Thank you so much! Glad you enjoyed your visit
It was great. Will definitely recommend Donna mac.
Service was slow with hardly any follow-up and it wasnt busy! Music was not a good choice for the ambience in the restaurant and it was loud. Hopefully mgmt takes this into account and actually addresses or I can see another restaurant having to close doors in Calgary.
Hi Thank you very much for taking the time to give this feedback. Are you able to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I would love some specific information so I can properly address this. Thank you in advance.
Great flavours, fresh food. The heirloom tomato salad was particularly good. Nice, simple decor and friendly service. We’ll be back!
Thank you for the kind review. Hope to see you again soon!
Food was outstanding.
Hi It seems we less than delivered on your service expectations. I would love to hear more about what happened. I can be reached at email@example.com Thank you
first time and it was a great experience, the food was wonderful and the place is really nice
Hi Thank you for the kind review! Hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
the only complaint I had for the evening was the music was far to loud. There was 4 of us dining and we could barely hear the server and found we were shouting at times to hear one another
Hi Angela Thank you for letting us know about the music! Our apologies and we hope to see you again. Cheers
Wonderful food trumped only by our fantastic server! We’ll be back.
Benedict Cucumberbatch - refreshing
Heirloom tomato salad - extraordinary
Side of carrots - delicious
Roasted cauliflower - yum
Mac + cheese - over the top
Pork schnitzel - perfection
Both seniors in our party were able to enjoy sitting at the bar rather than a table; adventurous.
Hi Shannon. I'm so glad you and your guests enjoyed your visit with us! Hopefully we will see you again soon. Cheers
Express lunch with soup and pork salad was excellent.
Thank you for the kind words. So glad you enjoyed!
Not pleased with my our good and service. Very disappointing.
Hi Abbi I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience with us. If you could elaborate further I would very much appreciate it. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org I look forward to hearing from you. Cheers
Fantastic food! The duck breast and the hanger steak in particular were outstanding. Family style dining gives opportunity to try many different dishes. A great selection of interesting and delicious cocktails. Wine list is a bit limited but serviceable. We had a fantastic dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our evening!
Hi! Thank you for the great review. Hope to see you again soon.
Wonderful food, and great service. Truly a lovely place to dine for special occasion or casual dining. The Mac and cheese is to die for.
Hi Krissy So glad you enjoyed your visit to Donna Mac. Hope to see you again soon. Cheers
The food was very mediocre. We had the squid and it was quite bland. The little salad was decent. We wanted the bread dish but they had run out...of bread... All in all we were underwhelmed. They ambience was nice and it wasn’t too loud so we could chat.
Hi Thank you for the feedback about the squid, your server did inform me that you didn't enjoy it and I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to touch base. As well, I apologize for the shortage of sourdough. It was definitely a first for us to run out and given we bake fresh in house daily we were unable to replace it which I know is disappointing. I hope that you will give us a second chance as that is not the norm. If you would like to discuss further you can reach us at email@example.com
We went here not knowing what to expect. Quiet enough to have a conversaion and the food was fantastic. Wine list just ok.
Hi Karen Thank you for the feedback. Hope to see you again soon. Cheers
Great service, menu needs a refresh. Little details on check in are not looked after, coat check etc.
Server was fantastic though.
Hi Sonika Thank you for the feedback. I'm glad you had great service but would love to know more about what specifically went wrong as I'm not sure I understand the second sentence. If you would could email firstname.lastname@example.org we would really appreciate it. Cheers!
Fabulous food and service. Love the ambience of the room.
