    The service here was amazing, just as it has been every time that we’ve dined here! We enjoyed the live music during our dinner and even caught ourselves humming along. Food was great, our favourite side dish has to be the brussel sprouts (please try them if you haven’t!).

    Food was good but our waitress was not very personable or attentive. She never came by once to ask how the meal was or if she could get us anything else. I expected more from such a legendary venue. It really affected our over all enjoyment. Very disappointed. Need to up the server game big time !

    If your a vegetarian skip this place. They have 2 entrees, the pasta was bland and uninspired. The other one is just cauliflower with a bunch of different sauces on it...and raisins. Just cause I'm vegetarian doesn't mean I only want to eat vegetables. I get we are in beef town but doesn't mean everyone here eats meat. If your charging $32 for a pasta dish is should be amazing.

    Went for the Valentine’s Day dinner. Over all it was pleasant but the service/food isn’t what you expect for a $350 dinner. The food was good but nothing special. Cocktails were very good. Location is beautiful, but we had a later redo so the staff started setting the restaurant for breakfast the next day so the last 30 mins of our dinner were quite loud from coffee cups banging.

    The menu is very restricted, the waiter served the soup with no spoon, took 10 minutes to get a spoon while the soap got cold, the portions are small and over priced, the place is noisy and conducive to a quiet dinner The waitress was pleasant and friendly, overall a very unpleasant experience and would not recommend or return to the restaurant

    LOVE it here. Quiet private seating in the restaurant, service was warm, helpful and attentive, great wine selection and outstanding food. We had the tuna tataki, Brussels sprouts, and burrata and all were excellent. Moved to the bar area thereafter, the live music was 10/10, much more of a “buzz” in the bar overall than the restaurant and so nice to have the two options. Cannot wait to return to explore more of the menu.

    Our Hostess from Ukraine was the most pleasant and polite your lady we have ever meet. We enjoyed speaking with her after she sat us at our table. Whatever her roll in your company is, She is most likely being under-utilized. Our Server was very good and attentive. But really $28.00 for eggs. Come on, I can buy 18 eggs for $ 9.50 Companies today are just ripping off the paying public. Our Our Useless PM - Trudeau does absolutely nothing. He actually encourages this as he steals from us every day.

    A fantastic experience aside from the two ladies taking pictures of themselves with their camera flashing all evening. So glad the bartender asked them to stop, lol. The atmosphere is wonderful. Servers were very friendly and prompt with keeping our glasses full and our food was out fast and soooo delicious. The Beef tenderloin was some of the best beef I've ever had, and I've had a lot. They even brought us a free dessert because it was our anniversary supper. Highly recommended from both of us.

    We were set for a reservation at 10 pm to celebrate our anniversary on 12/31. We were available at 9:30 and requested an early seating … but, only if possible. We were fine waiting. Initially, we were offered seating at a random table (clearly set up as an extra table) immediately next to the kitchen and water station. There were several open tables and we indicated we could wait if necessary. We were able to move to another “extra” table in the middle of the walkway (behind the couch that was in front of the fireplace) which was much nicer but, a bit odd. We were told someone paid extra for the “in front of the fire” table and it took FOUR (4) people to “ok” the seating. Meanwhile there were still other tables and the first table was never occupied. Service was hit or miss … they were busy as it was 12/31 so, we were not bothered. Our main waiter warmed up after the 2nd course of the tasting menu. They did forget half of the main course (lobster) and it was delivered room temp about 10 minutes after we received the steak. The food was fantastic as a whole!

    Nice to "dress up" and go to one of the grand train hotels - the Palliser in Calgary. We went midweek between Christmas and New Year's - a little quieter then. The ambience was great - one of the staff explained that it had been re-furbished in the last few years, and the festooned Christmas trees in the dining room, and the giant sleigh in the entranceway, really fit in with the season. We found the food presentation and taste, especially the sauces, were outstanding. Our only minor suggestion is that the special, very large Sundae, one of the desserts, was quite large - maybe have a smaller version of that as well. The staff were friendly and helpful - made us feel comfortable. We definitely recommend a visit.
