    We ordered the most loved items on their menu and this wasnt our first time hence the overall disappointment with the evening. The spicy salmon sushi rolls and the snow crab rolls were grossly under filled! The seaweed paper cud be touched one side to the other because it had barely as filling and were hollow . There was no taste since there was barely anything in there . At the very start our entire order from appys to main course and drinks was placed and yet the drinks came after the tempura orders and sushi roll orders making us have our drinks along with our hot udon soup . The beef in beef udon was chewy and cudnt be consumed. Overall a big dissapointment as this used to be a fav place

    4th time back. Had the dumplings to start and they were fantastic. I had the curry udon noodles and the wife had the kake udon. The Curry dish is on the heavy side for a lunch item but i always get it and it was awesome as usual. My wife raved about her kake bowl and she’s the fussy one. Lunchtime is quieter but it’s quite busy in the evenings. Great spot on 17th.

    Food was good. I'm a fan of scallops and generally order it wherever I go. However, $35 for scallops that were very small was somewhat disappointing. The rest of the meal was good just the value wasn't there for even for a higher end restaurant. You're going to need to know what to order.

    Really negative experience. Food was good but the moment we arrived (despite booking this table in advance) we were told we only had an hour and a half to eat because there was a reso right after us. At the one hour and ten minute point we tried to order dessert and was told no because of the next reservation. There were other guests who were there way before us and we didn’t see them being pressured to leave. To say the least the vibe was completely spoiled. We will never go back. The manager told us somewhere in the reservation instructions (that was my fault for not reading) we might get booted from our table. Luckily the Living Room was happy to seat us for dessert and more drinks. Lost business for Lonely Mouth Bar last night and in the future. I would recommend they move to a solution based versus reactive based management model as I’m confident others guests will be equally as offended as we were if this continues.

    Best udon in Calgary. Kake Broth is killer, you can taste the individual components clearly: konbu, katsuo bushi, yuzu. Super clean and defined. Maybe the volume of tenkasu overwhelmed a bit, but great taste. Noodles are fresh, firm, comforting and beautifully served . I had mine with some perfectly crunchy ebi Tempura. Very successful. My partner had hers unadorned. We shared a Tonkatsu Sando: a slab of super tender pork shoulder, sousvide’d then pan fried in panko and placed between slices of toasted milk bread. Really good, but is a meal in itself… Finally, a couple of hand rolls, a crab and a scallop with tobiko. Good standards. When things warm up around here, we will return for the cold Goma version. We’ll order less and come often…

    First time dining at lonely mouth - food exceeded our exceptions. Everything was beautifully balanced and delicious. What surprised us the most was the level of service, from food to beverage knowledge, she nailed it - shout out to Kayla she knocked it out of the park. If you can request her we would highly recommend !! 10/10

    We were disappointed. The food was ok at best. We ordered some appetizers that were underwhelming. The sushi roll was not great and one of our mains, the steak, was overcooked and dry. For the price, I was expecting at least a well-cooked steak. The server was pleasant but our table was right beside a speaker and the music was loud so it was hard to have a conversation. When we asked if they could turn the volume down a bit the server only said she was not responsible for the music. Overall, it was ok but our experience was definitely not at par with the many other good reviews this restaurant has.

    There is no temperature control in the covered patio area during winter and it is a pretty ugly decor. This was disappointing as we had made a reservation ahead of time. Otherwise the service and the food were 👌
