We are participating in the exemptions restriction program. To dine with us you will require Gov't ID AND Proof of valid vaccination OR proof of negative test within 72 hours (private not AHS test) OR proof of medical exemption.

The Mediterranean influenced cuisine paired with great wine and exceptional service. Located in the Calgary downtown core we are well accustomed to the hustle and bustle of the corporate lunch crowd and delight in the opportunity to serve our clientele both efficiently and consistently with our good old-fashioned familiar Escoba ways. Our evenings are a bit more quiet and perfect for catching up with an old friend, getting a bite to eat before or after a movie, or even just an impromptu drink and bite with family... did we mention we also host private events for a variety of sizes? We hope to serve you soon!

The good was on point and it was nice not to feel rushed. The wait staff was attentive but not smothering.

The food was delicious! Crab cakes totally rocked. The muscles….ask for extra bread to get the sauce off the bottom of the plate. The ambiance was gentle and totally relaxed. One of the best meals I have had out this fall.

My husband and I used to frequent Escoba pre-covid but it had been a good two years or more since we had been - and it was as amazing as we remembered. The food here is incredible and the service is second to none. We would go here again and again and again!!

This was my first time to this restaurant. It has a very nice ambiance with great food and service. Took my wife there for her birthday and they made it special. They even changed the music in the restaurant to a birthday song when they brought out a free dessert. Nice touch. Definitely recommend.

Escoba is one of my favourite restaurants in Calgary. The food is always delicious, the service is great, and it is a great location to host a business lunch or afternoon wine and appetizers - for two or for a larger group.
