The lunch menu doesn’t really know what it wants to be. The entrees are rather unremarkable and my pasta was bland.

The decor and mood of Royale was unique and very beautiful. Our server was attentive and consistent with his service. Unfortunately 2 of the 5 plates served were wrong however the manager was very quick to apologize and comped the bills for those 2 guests. I thought the value of the food was a bit higher than I expected however it was very tasty.

Are only complaint was that the 2 bottles of red wine we ordered, were overly chilled.

I haven’t been to Royale in over a year and was disappointed by the lunch we had. I had the tuna melt. The toast was difficult to cut through and the tuna was smoked too dry. My guest had the burger which was fine, but just fine. Service and atmosphere remains awesome.

Service was great and loved the ambience.
Had the duck and it was not rendered properly.
The pork belly and scallops were okay. Octopus was tender which was great but presentation seemed a bit heavy handed with creme fraiche.
I would go back for a glass of wine (great selection of rose) and try the charcuterie board.

From the start, my date was late, but the team was very accommodating. They made sure I had a place to sit at the bar while waited. Had changed my seating, because I wanted it to be more private and the team had no hesitation on helping. Although the table was wobbly, they fixed the issue. Everyone was super friendly and professional at the same time. Takes a good balance. This was my first time there and was my date’s favourite place. Food was fantastic and they know how to make a proper negroni. Would definitely be back! Thank you again Team Royale!

Came for lunch and the food was delicious. The place is beautiful, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The food is definitely worth the price, my friends and I can attest to just how good it tasted. All we could say to each other was how great it was! The pork benny bowl, royale burger, and black truffle mac & cheese are a must, though the rest are just as good. Also, our server Kennedy was awesome. Charming and helpful.
Our new go-to brunch spot :) might even say it's better than brokin' yolk.

This is such a beautiful room, one of the nicest in the city. Food is very good, approachable. Portions are very large, (I have only ever done lunch here), I inevitably take half home for dinner. So its really good value.
Service is great. I don't know why this place is not jammed every day.
I just had to have the Royal with Cheese, only because of the name, but wow, was it ever good....

Was it bad, no. Was it great, definitely not. Would I recommend it no, would I go back probably not.

My food was good my guests had the royal burger which they said was disappointing mostly due to the fact they felt the meat was very average.

I would have expected for the price and the hype the burger would have been The kind if Alberta beef people write home about

Service could really use an upgrade. And maybe get some comfortable chairs on the lower patio

On a positive note
The drinks and the wine list were great

I haven’t eaten at Royale for a while (since they changed from a primarily French menu). It was delicious and the service was outstanding. We sat on their beautiful patio - protected from the light rain and cool temperature. We had octopus, stone fruit salad, Mac and cheese and the short rib (plus delicious cocktails).
