Escoba Bistro and Wine Bar
Best restaurant I've ever eaten at. Everything on the menu is excellent from the appetizers to the desserts. Definitely worth every penny. You won't be disappointed in anything on the menu!
Escobar is a very nice restaurant for both personal and professional events. One of my favourites in Calgary
The food was good and the server was very pleasant. However, we did a set menu paired with wine for Valentines and the appetizer took quite a long time to come which was odd. After that everything was great. Not sure if they got a little behind or if something went wrong in the kitchen. We will go back though!!
It was fantastic. We had the Valentine chefs menu. Those short rib spring rolls were amazing. Incredible. The waitress seemed very unsure of herself and must have been brand new. She was ok. The steak was a bit over salted (and I like salt) and the cod was the only thing on the menu that we really didn’t like. We additionally ordered the tiger rose pasta and it was amazing as well and so was the desert. Thank you so much. We will definitely be back
Great food service and atmosphere. Definitely will be back
Very good. Seating by the window was pretty darn cold. Cold feet for much of the time I was seated. Luckily my date had snow boots on...just not me.
Great food served perfectly will definitely be back!
Food was great, we had the squid to start which was perfectly spiced and cooked. For our mains We had the duck and ribeye, the ribeye was cooked perfectly and salted to my liking. The duck was very rich with a great mushroom risotto that pulled it all together. For desert we went with the taster and it was a perfect amount of all their best items, almost order a second it was that delicious. We dined in the wine cage which was a very unique and personal place, staff was excellent as well. Will be going back soon.
Food and service were amazing, staff is friendly and the Valintine's day menu was fantastic
Steak wasn’t cooked good ribeye too rare.
Great tenderloin and great service. I have been back twice now and both times my experience was good.
It was such an amazing experience! Our server was phenomenal and knowledgeable about the menu, the atmosphere was quiet and intimate. Best outing in awhile 💜
Great quality. Food is never a disappointment. Overall in my view the most consistent restaurant downtown offering a great selection of food and wines.
Excellent food, service, and atmosphere.
Very good service and excellent meals.
The food was great. I had the Salmon and it was superb. The staff looked after us very well and the chef did an amazing job.
Good for a business lunch
Outstanding lunch! Started with a flight of reds, as it was a birthday celebration, followed up by their delicious spinach and cheese spring rolls. The whiskey smoked duck and seafood paella paired perfectly with the wines. This restaurant has got to be one of the hidden gems in Calgary.
Very attentive from the minute you walk in the door. Love the food and love the service. Will definitely be back!
Mushroom soup, meatballs and vegetable bake were all excellent. Flavourful fresh ingredients and balanced spices led to all dishes tasting delicious. Mushroom soup had good amount of garlic, perhaps too much for some people but it wasn’t over the top. The meatballs I’ve had before and will again. Cooked perfectly, delicious sauce and just the right amount of each. Meat wasn’t overpowered by the sauce and the portion was sufficient for a light lunch enter or a hearty appetizer. Best surprise was the vegetable bake which my colleague had and I got to taste. I think I’ll talk my wife in not ordering it next time. Hostess and server were friendly and attentive. Great lunch!
The food was amazing and our server recommended the perfect wine for me! Would totally go back again!
Always exceptional food, dinning & service , look forward to 2019 as a regular!
great place, great food. we will be back. cant believe I had not been here before
Escoba is amazing a great little gem in the downtown core. Food is amazing and so are the servers. The owners are always friendly and they always are sure to come by the table to thank you each and every time. Great food....thank you
With clients they were impressed
Dined with my wife to escape the craziness of Christmas shopping. Made our way to Escoba, and as always, it never disappoints.
Started with a glass of wine that was recommended by Laurel, who is super knowledgeable and passionate about the wines that they serve.
We shared the Atlantic mussels and squid to start. Both delicious.
Everything on the menu sounded good, as we decided on our entree. She chose the salmon, and I had the rib eye. Both were done to perfection.
On Chef Brad's recommendation, we had the truffles to finish, along with a Port to compliment.
The food, service, and atmosphere is always top notch when we go here, and can't wait to be back!
Always a favorite for business lunch or evening out. Great food and good service.
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.
