One of the best restaurants in Calgary. Highly recommend the Porchetta for 2!
Really cool rock atmosphere, wonderful and friendly service and the food was outstanding. I cannot recommend this place enough. Great Japanese inspired food with fresh ingredients. I will be back as soon as possible.
Never ever had a bad experience at Gorilla Whale. I count it as one of my favourite restaurants in Calgary. Food is always amazing and the menu does switch up which is great! The drinks menu also changes- I usually go for cocktails- though I am picky so often order off menu and again- always so good!! And the service is always spot on! Super friendly wait-staff who check in but don’t interfere.
My go-to place for taking people from out fo town as I know they’ll enjoy it. I think the prices are perfect for what you get as well.
Oh- and the yakatori sticks?!- best in town!!
We went to Gorilla Whale with another couple who hadn't visited before, and everyone was blown away by the food and cocktails. We shared a few appetizers to start (the gyoza, steam buns and edamame), and we could have easily ordered another round because everything was so good, but we wanted to save room for the mains. Try the sashimi donburi.
The cocktails were also fantastic - particularly the Fast Break and Old Fashioned. Our server Abby was great too! Thanks for a wonderful evening, Gorilla Whale!
Happy hour was amazing, such good drink deals! Went at a quiet time but server was friednly and attentive.
Really enjoyed our night and food! Would book at gorilla whale again
It was an amazing experience!!!!
Very glad I went in every way. Intend to come back.
Excellent food! Excellent location. Great service. Sitting outside was fabulous on such a beautiful night 🌃. Enjoyed happy hour prices on a delicious bottle of white wine 🥂 Most definitely will be back!
Awesome service! In spite of how weird all the covid restrictions make going out we had a lovely time, thanks to our kind server and all the tasty food. The shrimp wontons are completely homemade and taste like it! Everything we ordered was very well thought out, unique and delicious. And I was grateful for the yummy non-alcoholic drink selection! Always Appreciate it when restaurants offer more than a sad soda water and lemon for us non-drinkers.
Went for a Sunday snack. Delicious food (sticks are very tasty, despite the downplayed description). Enjoyed the vegetable ramen. All our food was tasty and the cocktails were delightful. Will return!
decent joint to grab some good eats in a trendy area
I found the food to deep fried to eat. Nice location, excellent service but the food is Blau. And over priced
Fantastic food and flavours! Definitely recommend this place.
The food and service was great as per usual. Try it, you'll love it.
Wife and I finally got to try out Gorilla Whale when we had a date night recently and it lived up to the hype. We sat at the bar and the bar tender did a great job of explaining the drink and food options making our choices very easy. The Spicy Dove cocktail was amazing and went great with our food choices. This time around we only had a few of their snacks and everything left us wanting more. Gorilla Buns, Edamame and the Sticks were must tries.
Delicious food and great cocktails!
We had Gorilla Buns, shrimp gyoza, soft shell crab, and 3 different sticks ... all sooo good!
our 5th time, staff and food amazing as per usual!!!
Fantastic place always go when visiting YYC. Keep up the great work!
Great new find. Good food and service
Great service and great food.
Gorilla whale never fails to deliver. The quality of the food is top notch and the service is incomparable. I didn't get the name of the hostess but she was extremely friendly. Our server, Pat, was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and attentive. Our water was never empty, our drinks were always full, our table was always cleared.
The food arrived in a timely manner and was delicious as always, highly recommend the halloumi sticks and the donburi either the hot chicken or the sashimi.
It was my first time at Gorilla Whale. Won’t be my last! We went for the ramen, and were not disappointed. Better than any ramen we have had in the city so far. Great selection of appetizers & drinks. Definitely go here!!
Loved all the yummy food we had at GW last night. We enjyoyed the cucumber salad, shrimp gyoza, pork, steak and mushroom skewers, greens salad with delicious dressing, salmon skewer and very interesting doughnuts. Great service and wonderful evening. Thanks so much, looking forward to coming again to try out great food.
great food and great service from the fella in the green mask. Patio seating was great, even with a minor rain shower!
Great service! I had the chicken ramen. Would definitely order again
Wonderful service, food was delicious (I had the sashimi donburi and my partner had the chicken ramen). A huge drink selection including some incredible cocktails and Japanese whiskey. Highly recommend this place for date night!
Amazing as always. Excellent food, great cocktails, friendly service.
Amazing food and great customer service! Would go again in a heartbeat!
Finally spent some time with my siblings and their partners, great time for the 6 of us. Shared great appys and then had some main courses as well. Great service and our food was delicious, many different flavor combinations. Highly recommend, also a nice selection of cocktails to cool you down, perfect evening
Server was awesome, had a real good meal, fun time, would recommend to anyone. Appetizers were very good
Always a delicious meal and top notch service.
I’ve been to Gorilla Whale twice and it is fabulous! The food is very unique and delicious. There’s a decent wine list too!
Consistently delicious. Always great service. A favourite in Calgary!
This was my second time out with my wife since the pandemic started. We saw the ratings online and wanted to give Gorilla Whale a shot. The quality of food was amazing. Great experience overall. We will be back.
We chose Gorilla Whale as our first date night away from our new baby and we were very happy with everything! Service was very efficient, food was delicious and it has a cool vibe and casual but classy atmosphere. Hot chicken donburi and pork steam buns were our favourite plus they had a nice beer list and great cocktails. Only comment would be it would have an affordable bottled wine option. Overall everything was excellent however.
portion size was very small for the extreme price of each item.
Favourite in the neighbourhood. Great as always!
Such yummy food and our waiter was great!
