We honestly came for the half priced wine (by the bottle). Of course that was fantastic. The mussels and tartare were very good and the butchers cuts we ordered were also delicious. The service was good to start then slowly tapered off as an adjacent table of a dozen or so people required extra attention. After a bit of a lull in service, it picked up again as another (more attentive) server came in to provide some assistance. Overall, a great evening with some of the best wine and food.

Food was great. Atmosphere was great. Took almost an hour to receive our food (kind of ruins the overall experience). Yes, it was Valentine’s Day, but the restaurant was not at capacity.

It was mine and my boyfriends first time coming to your restaurant, the entire experience was amazing. Only thing that made the night a little less amazing was where we were sitting, I think I was near the back door and anytime someone used it I got a really cold breeze. Pretty sure the weather was -29 but overall it was a lovely time :) Thank you!

Continues to be one of my favorite dining locations in Calgary. The food was spectacular, especially the hickory smoked wagyu beef special and the service was fabulous. Our server had impeccable recall and knowledge of the menu options and was able to expertly recommend perfectly paired wine with our appetizers and mains.

Such an amazing experience. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff helped make our dinner a special night out. The octopus was SUPER delish (probably my favorite) and we had the butchers cut as a main to share (short rib was divine). The wine suggested to pair with our meal was right on. Would recommend this place to anyone wanting to catch up with a friend or have an intimate date night out.

Came for a birthday brunch with my sister and mom, unfortunately we were quite disappointed with the food. The service was excellent though. I don’t know how you can put eggs Benedict on the menu and have it coming out on one slice of sourdough bread and one big hash brown. The lack of color (fruits &/or veggies) on our plates was quite disheartening, especially when all of our dishes were $17-$18 each. The lamb sausages were very salty and the giant ball of a hashbrown was salty and almost too burnt. Needless to say l, we probably won’t be coming back. Worst birthday brunch & $80 spent.

The service was spectacular, but the food was "okay". I ordered the eggs benedict with ham. Though the eggs, ham and sauce were tasty, the bread had a hard edge which mad it "hard" to enjoy the full experience.

This was our first time to Royale. Service was great and the food tasty. We shared a few starter plates and then one of guest had a main course, which was the fish special. We tried the tomato salad, cauliflower frittas, french bread with brie and the truffle mac and cheese. All very good! Service was attentive and ambiance quite lovely. I would definitely recommend Royale to friends.

The Mac and cheese was one of the best I’ve had and I’ve had a lot.. Duck delicious, scallop and pork is a must have! Coming from Vancouver with various amounts of food options, it was a great surprised to stumble upon a restaurant better than one of the fine dining from downtown Vancouver.

I hope these item do not change, does not need even a bit of a tweak. Also, the funny bubbles or wine for $6 “cheap & cheerful”. Knows the way to my heart. One of the best spots in Calgary. Matt thank you for a really great dining experience, you’re great!

I took my friend for a birthday lunch - it was a wonderful dining experience. Our server, Chris, was amazing; he was personable, knowledgable and attentive. The food was amazing, too! The portions were very generous. We split the heirloom tomatoes to start, the mushrooms on toast for the main, and finished with the pumpkin tart (and we still had some food leftover). We thoroughly enjoyed it all! I will return!

I had the avocado/smoked salmon on sourdough and it was just amazing. The cappuchino was perfection. I even bought a loaf of sourdough to go because good bread is so hard to find. Can't wait to go back for the benedict and a croissant!
(Lots of GF/Paleo/Keto options tho!)

3 out of 4 dishes were delicious but the Manitoba pickerel dish was not - the fish was rubbery and the sauce was overly sweet. The quinoa and kale side was swimming in oil.

Truffle Mac and cheese was a real treat. Half priced bottles of wine from this solid list was also very nice. A bottle of 2015 St. Cosme White Rhone was delicious.
Lamb "hotdog" was a very flavourful sausage and the fries are excellent. Next time we might try some vegetables.
