The food was great, the servers very friendly and accomodating....but this message is for the management: The restaurant was severly understaffed leading to long waits for our food and for attention from our servers. We were accomaodated as well as we could have been by the only two servers on the floor. An additional server was needed for the number of ppl in the restaurant.

Service was remarkably slow and when it was pointed out nothing was done to rectify the matter. We waited 12 minutes before ordering and another 14 before actually receiving beverages. Staff was polite and apologetic when issues around time were pointed out however greater amends should have been made for such a subpar experience. Really disappointing performance from such a high caliber restaurant.

My most recent visit for dinner with a guest was not as one would normally expect. I've dined here before a few times so not the first time or a first impression.
Service was extremely slow, on a night when the restaurant seemed to be less than 50% capacity, which didn't make sense. The first course arrived in about 25-30 minutes (salad greens and oysters), and the main course took almost an hour and a half to arrive. The meals were not hot, so potentially they sat on the counter for a while - just guessing. That's not so good after such a long wait.
Service was inattentive throughout this long period. The front staff all appeared to be young people, with limited experience on this evening. It would have been good to at least get a heads up that there was in issue in the kitchen or some explanation that there would be a wait involved. None of that took place and the evening took an excruciating drag.
It appeared as if the establishment has suffered a decline in both service and quality of food compared to earlier visits. It's a shame since the venue is very nice with a good bar.
I hope management can turn this around and polish their service and improve the quality of food.

Went for an anniversary dinner. Food was good and came fresh. Cocktail drinks were tasty, but drinks in general were slow to receive. Happened to be there on a day that the kitchen was backed up and so we waited a lot longer than I would have liked for each course. Not sure if it was because the meal was rushed due to the kitchen back up, in the main dish the greens were charred and the ribs seemed a bit over cooked.
Had reservation for 7 and got in quick but didn't get the last dish of the sharable meal until 9pm.

Last night was a perfect night for the patio and we we're lucky enough to get a seat out there. Our server was nice, helpful and didn't rush us at all. The food came quite quickly and we ordered food 3 different times, drink and appetizers, one app had sold out so she returned to ask if we wanted something else, it came quickly, then we ordered the mains once the last app arrived. The food was full of flavor, and good textures, we had the flatiron steak and the pork belly as mains and the elk carpaccio which were all memorable.

The food was excellent but the service was strange. It took a while to get our order and the server was confused about whether it had already been taken. A fire alarm went off for about 15 mins which was annoying, and the Diet Coke we ordered was horrible tasting and flat. Luckily it was taken off the bill. There was also an issue with splitting the bills. Overall it was a nice experience but I would expect the service to be more on the ball from such a nice restaurant with the prices it has.

We had a very attentive waitress who was there at just the right moments considering the restaurant was very busy.We had the charred octopus, Royale burger and fresh fish of the day (halibut). All were very good. We finished off the dinner with a very nice cup of cappuccino. It was also half price wine night, which is a great value.

The outdoor patio is absolutely beautiful on a Sunday morning for brunch. I was extremely disappointed when I asked for a dairy free option for my daughter. A dairy filled side came on her plate. I only realized it because I tasted it as it looked suspiciously like something that would have dairy. If I had let her eat it we would have had a very sick little girl on our hands. This was unacceptable after making our waitress aware. An apology was not given. I was offered a substitute item though after I lectured about the danger of giving an allergen to a customer after it had been discussed. We also did not get a side of bacon that we had ordered as well. I have been for drinks before and enjoyed so I think I will stick to that in future.

Overall a good experience. The restaurant decor was really neat - we were seated inside and it felt like we were in an atrium type garden with a glass ceiling. The dishes that the server recommended were quite tasty and the service was prompt. We did end up having to wait for quite some time before our mains came out, but I think that there was an issue in the kitchen. The servers brought out bowls of fries for every table and apologized for the delay. That was a nice touch - we weren’t starving as we had already had appies, but it would have been rough had we just been waiting with empty bellies. I would come back here again.

The service we had for brunch was amazing, they were accommodating about my allergies which is always a win! Food was excellent and love their new brunch menu! Can't wait to be back again for a relaxing mimosa filled Sunday brunch. Also their patio has heaters AND a glass cover over most of the patio making it the perfect spot for dodge-y Calgary weather.
