Continental
Major Tom is elevated yet approachable, excellent and at ease, confident and gracious. The food, the room, and the service capture the sophistication and glamour of mid-century New York penthouse life, and you feel instantly at home. We maintain the high standards our guests have come to expect, and we do this while being down-to-earth, lively, playful, quirky, fun, and full of personality.

We had a great experience. I would like to give a huge thanks to the staff, especially our server, Steven, he treated us well. He made sure we had everything we need and came back several times to check up on us. He went above and beyond. Overall, the staff was welcoming and kind. I Would go back for the view and the experience. Thank you Major Tom staff!

From the moment you arrive in the main floor elevator lobby, you know something special is going to happen. Very welcoming both on the main floor desk and the 40th floor reception. We had a wonderful window table for two, and thank you for that, our server Chantal was truly wonderful. The oysters were outstanding, highly recommend! Burger good, Alberta trout good but didn’t like what it was on, some sort of goo not so great and desert was scrumptious!!!
Overall a nice time and spectacular view, thank you!!!

Food was delicious. A table by the window would've been ideal, but it was still a great atmosphere for our anniversary. Fairly pricey but the food is prepared very well to somewhat warrant the cost. Check it out.

I reserved several months in advance and have to say I was disappointed based on what others had to say. I can think of at least 5 places I would rather go. I wish I had booked a window seat, because that’s the main allure.

The service was nice, but not noteworthy. They were prompt and kind, but not personable or exceptional.

The ambiance is nice, except for unexpected noise level likely attributable to the open concept.

The drink selection and cocktails are lovely, but pricy - most 17$ per drink.

The food was quite average. I was expecting more elevated food. I do recommend the steak tartare, but found the steak and fries absolutely disappointing. I don’t throw food out, but the fried were 100% not worth the calories. The food was fresh and the flavors of the tartare were the highlight for me. The Pork belly was also tender and delicious.

Overall though, I would give the experience 7/10. The gushing of others was not met.

Great atmosphere and delicious food. Oysters and shrimp were amazingggg!! Our server was attentive and fun. Only improvements would be table size; the table for two that we sat at was two large, hard to talk to your dinner companion, luckily noise levels were good (unlikely many restos which blast music). The pear chocolate dessert was delicious but should have been more towards room temperature, not cold. All in all, Calgary’s best!

It is at the “top” of places to eat in the city. The food and experience is close to unparalleled throughout Calgary.

It is one of if not the best steak house in town with much more than steak on the menu for all preferences.

You can’t go wrong with using Major Tom’s to impress. Just be ready to pay for the experience, although worth it.

The food was good but small portions. The server had a bit too much attitude for my liking. The baked alaska was neat display but was not worth $19.

It was our first time here and it did not disappoint! Food was absolutely amazing. It’s a higher price point than your average restaurant, but definitely worth it! The cocktails were ok, but the food and service really stood out. The nice personal touch of having a card thanking us for celebrating with them was the cherry on top that will make this experience memorable. Will definitely be back again!

So sad. Came in the summer and it was phenomenal. Last night was horrific. The food just not the same and over priced for what is was, our bill was $500 for 4, prime rib was cold, flavours we’re not there for the appetizers. I’ve been raving about this place but I can’t say I’ll be back.

Celebrating our 31st wedding anniversary and heard so many great things about this high above Calgary scenic restaurant. We had a corner table right beside the window with views of Calgary tower and Bankers hall, so cool! As to the food, was a mix of very good to mediocre, the pork belly side is a must as is the potato doughnut appetizer. Sorry to say our filet mignon, had no seasoning, bland, dry and cold, perhaps as a suggestion don’t already cut the meat for those sharing, let us cut it, might retain the juice better. The steak fries with the garlic aioli was very delicious. We also had the baked Alaska, was very good, unfortunately our server had trouble lighting it so was really an Alaska with a bourbon drizzle and no real flame to speak of……still good. Overall it’s the view that makes this high rise eatery worth at least one visit

The server was very friendly and helpful. The greeting staff was welcoming and for my partners birthday gave him a card signed by the staff which was such a nice touch! The food was great however I will say portion sizes were quite small, however if you have multiple courses you end up leaving very full anyway!

The Brussel Sprouts are great! Good flavour and a decent portion. The crab and shrimp roll, while tasty enough, was very small and butter heavy on the outside. We really enjoyed the garlic shrimp and even ordered a second portion.

Service was average, although really liked the girl who looked after us. Serving etiquette needed a refresher.

Regardless, we had a good night and enjoyed the overall experience.

Everything was amazing. If I could change one thing, it would be that it was a bit too dark to see my food and we used flashlights on our phones for that and to see the menu. But other than that, I wouldn’t change anything! Very good

Fist time to Major Tom, will definitely be back soon. Extremely well organized from the downstairs elevators host to the main restaurant entrance and just an overall outstanding laid out room. The cocktail menu has a wide range of fun vibrant drinks to suite anyone's taste. Seamus one of the managers even came by with a round of Tom Collins for my date and I. His positive energy and knowledge of the restaurant really set the tone for the night. The best view in Calgary speaks for itself. We'll definitely be back soon.

Amazing location, food didn’t necessarily blow me away but was good. The oysters were excellent as was the tartar and the tuna. I had the Cavatappi which was very tasty; other members of our party had the chicken and it was good but nothing to write home about. This is my 2nd time dining there and the first time we had the bone in striploin. Again nothing wrong with it, but nothing to get overly excited about. On that occasion we also had the crispy eggs (good), potato purée (very good), mushrooms (a little bland), Brussels sprouts (excellent) and scallops (very good). It’s not an inexpensive meal but you can definitely find things on the menu that won’t break the budget. Somewhat small but solid wine list.

Honestly it could have been a bad experience because not once but twice they screwed up our oyster order and forgot to bring it out or brought it to someone else…..but we weren’t in a hurry and they were so apologetic about it, sent out the manager, comped the dish, etc. The rest of the food was fantastic and the cocktails were great. Would go back despite the order issue

Excellent menu,
So many nice things we wish we could have tried.
I wished they had a tasting/paring menu.
Wine list was good.

Bar drinks seem over priced - ie $50 for a Manhattan,
I had to step down to an old fashioned.

Hard to get a reservation, too many tables reserved for walkins.
