Donna Mac, what an amazing restaurant. I’m putting this on my favourites list now. The food is to die for, so flavourful. The ambience is warm and happy. The staff are very friendly. Oh, and the dessert...never forget the dessert, yum! :)

Quite disappointing considering all the hype around this restaurant in the Calgary media. We had 4 separate dishes: beets, risotto, squid, chicken. We didn’t finish nearly half of each dish. The beets we sent back because they were bland and gritty. Squid was rubbery didn’t come out hot. I had h I ghee expectations; not a single dish was better than 2/5 stars.

The food was disappointing. When I ordered beets/carrots I was expecting smaller portions/sizes with more taste/sauce. We had to pay for the extra hummus which was very scant in the beets. The cod was delicious as well as chocolate pudding. I will not be returning and I will not recommend to friends. Higher expectations as owner from Ten Foot Henry.

Donna Mac
Responded on December 26, 2019

Hi Thank you for the feedback. I apologize that you found the portions too large for the amount of sauce on the plate. That is something we could have easily fixed for you. Did you let your server know? We can be reached at hello@donnamacyyc.ca to discuss further if you are interested. Also, we are flattered for the association but are not owned by Ten Foot Henry.

We started with the lovely bread and cashew butter. Followed by 6 types of vegetables. All were delicious. The cod was excellent and I loved the curry sauce.
The panna cotta was generous and the avocado chocolate cake was smooth. Overall beautiful food and great service.

The food is incredible and very tasty, probably some of the best food the city has to offer and great for vegetarians. However, the service was NOT good. Our server took 20 minutes to take our drink order and when we went to order food she walked away. Probably because she couldn’t hear us as the place is extremely loud and we were a party of 4 practically yelling so we could hear our conversations. Made the expenrience not as enjoyable as I would have hoped. Our server also spoke very quiet which made it difficult to hear what she was saying. I would still recommend the place to friends and family however I would warn them ahead of time of how loud the place is.

A group of friends and I like to go out once a month and try new places each time. This time we tried Donna Mac, and we are all glad we did! The next day EVERYONE was still raving about how good the food was, and that we might need to make this a repeat place to go!

The food was tapas style and everything we ordered was incredible. Lots of options for Vegetarian and Vegan.

Top 3 dishes: Tempura Green Beans, Gem Lettuce and Beets!

Service was fabulous, we unfortunately did not catch our servers name, but if the name in the receipt is right Seth was a rockstar!!

Ambiance was perfect for chatting and catching up with friends!

1000% will eat here again, probably sooner rather than later.

My three sisters and I had a lovely time. It was my sister's birthday and when I made the reservation I requested a gluten free sugar free dessert. They produced a beautiful gluten free dessert which I thought was above and beyond, it also had a birthday candle for my sister to blow out! I was really impressed. Although they couldn't meet our request for sugar free I still thought they did a really great job and my sister was so happy at their efforts. The food was amazing and the service was even better!!
I highly recommend this restaurant!
