Been here a gazillion time in the past and always been one of their biggest fans, however last night, the service was very disappointing.. That is if it could even be categorized as ‘service’.

Service was indifferent. A full glass of water dropped in my husband’s lap by the server. Very little contact with server, we would have ordered more food/wine but server was no where to be found.

Don’t know why this was our first time here, if you love seafood these guys know how to prepare it!

Oysters Macintosh were amazing, along with white wine mussels to die for. Crab cakes that actually tasted like crab cakes, scallops that were prepared perfectly and the ceviche was so refreshing in the pallet it was perfect for a hot day.

Can’t wait to try other items on the menu, we will be back!

Seriously sone of the best customer service I've experienced & by all 4 of the gentleman that assisted us at various points. The oysters were delicious and tons of variety. Such a nice treat to have people that just seem to love doing their jobs. :)

Ambiance is excellent. Was greeted by very friendly staff upon entering. Food was amazing.

Only teaching point would be to have servers versed and knowledgable about the food. We asked what the bowl of Periwinkles was and was told it tasted like “bites of the sea.” Server also didn’t know how to describe any of the seasonal oysters, and didn’t have any tasting recommendations with the sauces provided. She was however VERY friendly, kind, and attentive.

I first went to Rodney's after a conference in Calgary. Fell in love with it then and I haven't been disappointed there yet. This visit was no exception.

I love sitting at the bar for the show. Happy hour oysters and wine, a few baked, halibit tacos, clam chowder, scallops, and a great chocolate mousse to top it off. Couldn't ask for better.

I'm running out of things on the menu to try, but that's not a problem, I'll just start at the top again.

Fantastic first visit to Rodney's to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. From the moment we walked in and were greeted we knew this would be a special occasion!
Our server was friendly, engaging and very knowledgeable about the menu. We particularly appreciated his advice about the choice of oysters and the ability to mix and match menu items.
As for the food, each item significantly exceeded expectations. The oysters were incredibly fresh and tasty. The mussels were steamed to perfection and the white wine broth was mouth watering. We also enjoyed a half order of scallops and crab cakes each of which exceeded expectations with respect to perfect cooking and stimulating taste.
We rounded off with a perfect creme brulee.
We were able to take our time and just enjoy the evening and never felt rushed.
My Wife and I had a wonderful time at Rodney's and can't wait to find an excuse to return.
This was the best quality seafood I have enjoyed in Calgary (and many other places)

Monday night moribund in most restaurants and this no exception. Good server. Decent wine list included a good albarino. Food was very average. Fries overdone, lobster butter cold, halibut drowning in a sea of gloopy potatoes. But this is Calgary and the only place to get a real lobster

Very pricey. Which I don’t mind if the food is superb which it was the first time I went. Lunch today: lobster club. Sliced white bread—-several slices , margarine, mayonnaise, iceberg lettuce, tasteless tomato, and a small amount of tough over cooked lobster. Not good enough for the price. Fries were excellent and thankfully the person I was treating had a good meal of oysters and Caesar

first time there in January the steak, scallops were terrific and the vegetable quality and selections were outstanding
Went back end of April, and Ordered steak and scallops. They forgot the scallops and steak had to be sent back twice as it was too rare. Vegetable selection was just okay and boring.
In fairness they offered a free desert for the trouble but sadly the food experience was nothing compared to first visit in January.
