As always a great meal! One of my favorite places downtown.
Possibly the best meal I have had in Calgary.
Awesome lunch. Had the appetizer selection of the day and the Tiger Rose pasta. Sooo good. Loved the ambiance and our server Kayla. I’ll be back!
Great service, nicely spaced out and friendly. Food was excellent.
I like to come here when I have guest from out of town visiting either for business or personal. It is a great place to go. I normally don't write reviews but I think this place deserves the recognition. Sincerely, Len M.
I always have a great experience at Escoba.
Enjoyed the carpaccio, Tiger rose pasta good, sauce needed more seasoning, asked for extra prawns, which they did ( thank you). Tess was our Server, she knew we were in no rush and her service and her timing was perfect.
Excellent service, excellent food, one of my favourite places to dine downtown, for lunch or dinner.
We love going to Escoba! The food is always amazing and their staff are knowledgeable, welcoming and friendly.
Great food, great service, and competitive prices... an excellent date night! !
As a new comer, I found this restaurant with good reviews from online search. I asked waitress for recommendations, it turned out to be both the food and wine were very tasty. It is highly recommended.
Great food, great service, no complaints.
We had a delicious meal on Saturday night. We had very little time between movies and the hosts at Escoba accommodated us wonderfully. We were in and out in half an hour. The Escoba Salad was particularly enjoyable. The staff was fantastic!
Awesome service and the ahi tuna on my salad was to die for
I have been a regular visitor to Escoba over the years and I'm very happy they were able to re-open. Food quality is consistently high and the staff pay attention to detail, which differentiates them from a lot of other establishments. Looking forward to our next opportunity to dine there in the near future.
It was very quiet and not a lot of people when we got there so wasn't a party atmosphere at all. Loved our experience though and were looking for something quiet so was perfect.
Wife and I really enjoyed the restaurant setting and food. My wife is a bit more restrictive in her food choices, (e.g. no fish, goat or blue cheese, wild game, mushrooms or meat that is still bleeding). Overall she was still able to find a few meals for her and they were more than willing to keep ingredients she doesn't eat, off the serving. We both really enjoyed the food and found it prepared very well. I went with the surf/turf option they had. She opted for the chicken dinner with a substitution of scallops to asparagus. Both meals were excellent. Service was quick.
It did became a bit loud when it was about 3/4 full. We arrived when it was almost empty.
When we reviewed the cocktails, they didn't actually list anything basic (Vodka/Cran, Amaretto Sour, Screwdriver,etc.) and they are all served with 2 ounces, which keeps the price up. When we asked about other drinks, the waitress did not volunteer to check or have the bartender build any (likely due to not having ingredients). This was the opposite of our experience with the food where they were willing to substitute or remove and volunteered the info. Might be beneficial to have some orange juice or mix available. Overall, still highly recommend the restaurant and we will absolutely go back.
Decent place if a little on the pricey side, good wine menu. The server could have been more attentive . After the meal it felt like we were left on our own, had to look for someone so we could pay the bill.
quiet and intimate - excellent food and wine list. Great ambiance.
Terrific food as always! Well done folks, well done!
Always a delicious meal and they do a great job of getting you in and out in an hour for a business lunch. One of my favorite spots.
The food is fantastic! We both had the Seafood Paella and thoroughly enjoyed every bite. The atmosphere allowed us to discuss easily without having to talk louder than necessary. Great place!
Service is slow
The food was really good (lovely wine list); that said, the service was even better. We will definitely be back.
The service was outstanding, the food was outstanding. The wine list was supported by someone on staff that knew everything about it! I can’t wait to go back again!
Six of us dined at Escoba and the impression was unanimous. It was outstanding.
Amazing individuals there provide a welcoming atmosphere of smiles and attentiveness! My favorite restaurant!
Great lunch experience. Great food and great service
Great food, service and ambiance. Nice find and highly recommended.
Always amazing quality flavour and service a timeless favourite
My friend and I visited on an early Saturday evening. We had reservations at 6 pm and there was only one other couple in the dining room but it soon filled up. The noise level though was not too loud but we had a lovely corner table beside the windows. The service was very good and our server was most knowledgeable about both the food and wine choices. We shared the Arancini and they were delicious...5 small bites so enough for 2 to share if you are ordering an entree and dessert. My entree was the smoked duck breast served with barley risotto, asparagus, carrots and red pepper. The flavours were outstanding and the duck was very tender and cooked perfectly although I did have to remove the skin since it was not crispy. This I have to do in many restaurants so it was not a problem for me. My freind had the paella and she said the flavours were delicious but the octopus was too tough and she was not able to eat that. We did mention it to the server and with our dessert we received complimentary truffles. For dessert we chose the fig brownie with rasperry sorbet and lemon curd. It was enough for us to share and supremely delicious. All in all we had an enjoyable evening and I would recommend the restaurant to my friends and family.
Hadn’t been to Escoba for quite some time, but was not disappointed. Food was delicious (had the duck Breast with barley risotto and the rose fettucini with shrimp). The wine that was suggested was superb. Had a wonderful dinner with friends
Service was great and glad you’re back!
Food was excellent as always. Our host Laura was great and welcoming.
Helped us celebrate a special birthday for a special friend.
Cozy and friendly, service very personal but professional at the same time. Wine list great and the food is exceptional. Can only recommend.
Escoba is a hidden gem. We went to celebrate our anniversary and it was a wonderful experience. We got a window seat which was great for people watching. The wine was on point and the appetizers were full of flavor . We had meatballs and squid. The only critique I would make is for the squid to be cut very thinly and not presented in such big pieces. Once I cut it into strips the mixture was phenomenal! Our entrees were AMAZING! My husband had the seafood paella and I had the salmon. Everything was cooked perfectly and delicious. I’m not sure how they knew it was our anniversary but they gave us complementary truffles, which made the experience even better. The service was perfect and we will definitely be back.
Excellent as always went for lunch and had a great meal and great service. Thank you and sorry I forgot her name was very impressed she was very courteous and knowledgeable. We were 4 for lunch and it was great we all had something different all were very good and lots of flavors the burger was amazing. Thank you Chef.
Food and service were excellent. We’ll be back.
