Consistently great service and food. It’s date night friendly and dinner with friends appropriate too because it’s easy to share food and hold a conversation without needing to yell across the table to be heard!

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.

Everything was perfect, mostly. We asked to have the music changed to something light and jazzy which the server willingly did. As the evening progressed, however, I noticed it changed. The room is beautiful but with the high ceiling and mostly hard surfaces, the noise level is bothersome. Could they possibly install some sound-absorbing materials?

So nice to find a great place for breakfast. The food was well balanced and beautifully prepared and presented. My only criticism would be the potato pancake was oily when placed on the plate and left a small puddle. Otherwise a great dinning experience and we are looking forward to trying dinner too.

Not only is the Royale space stunning, but the servers and the food are too! Ask for Matt or Anthony and you will not be disappointed! They know their stuff and take excellent care of you :) The new addition of the Charred Octopus is brilliant! I am still dying for those darn Gouda Potato Dumplings to be made a permanent item... ;)

My wife and I celebrated our 5th anniversary together here and had such a fantastic experience. The manager Kari (hope I spelt it right) and our server Matt were awesome- they went above and beyond to make our night out unforgettable. Unreal cocktails, amazing food, and above and beyond service thank you very much!

Recommendations:
The duck, oysters, and any of their cocktails!

Very welcoming at entrance, great space (we loved it when it was Corbeaux, the changes made to interior are lovely). Amazing starters menu, could have happily just had those (recco the mushroom toast!) Portions are significant in size so go hungry! Only downside-wait for mains seemed quite long (could have been recoverable though) but then waiter seemed to lose focus. It had started strong but then we waited for final dishes to be removed, waited to pay so someone else ran our card and yet a third person got our receipt when we asked. Left feeling...unimportant.

The staff at Royale went above and beyond to make our group feel welcomed. The service was outstanding and made a “mommy and baby” lunch for six of us fun and relaxing. This was a special feat given that each of the attending mommy had a baby under 1 year old with them. It is rare to find a restaurant that is both child friendly and foodie friendly.

I wish there was another greater word I could use over outstanding - because this place is beyond outstanding . The food was one of the best meals I have ever had since moving to Calgary 11 years ago! I had friends in town from Las Vegas - both are big foodies & work in hotels in Vegas! One of my friends said that the food was fantastic & that the Elk carpaccio was better than any carpaccio he had ever had in Vegas !! If you go ( and really you must!) - try the mussels - omg - yummy !! I could go on and on about this restaurant. My only regret was that we had not been there before!!

Royale has always been a venue that we have enjoyed with family and friends for Sunday brunch. The space is beautiful, food always consistent (specially the pastries) and there has never been an issue with the service. Overall the past experiences have been of top grade, however this recent visit was quite disappointing. Service was not tentative, food was slow, atmosphere was very "down" (no smiles from any of the staff). It felt like everyone dreaded being there. We were a party of six and when entrees were being served, the server dropped my son's full entree. The food landed all over the table and the sauces splattered all over the floor and onto my aunt's legs. We understand and absolutely empathize with accidents however it is in how the situation was handled therafter that is disappointing. Some of the clean up had to be at our request. Out of three staff that tended to the mess (inclusive of one manager who reached over my son with a wet cloth without asking to be excused) there was no acknowledgement or apologies made until much later by one server. My son had to wait again for his food and no gestures were extended to take care of him during the wait nor to acknowledge the inconvenience. Monetary value or compensation is not the matter but there was not even a discount reflected on the bill. So overall from a hospitality point we felt very neglected and even insulted. To be fair our disappointment was not conveyed to them but in cases like these for an establishment of such caliber, corrective measures should be exercised proactively and not initiated by the client. It is likely that we will not be returning and it's unfortunate.

Service was good. Server had decent knowledge of the wine and recommended a superb Bourgogne rouge premier cru. Appetizers were well-presented. Soupe à l’oignon was not bad. Pork chop looked delicious to me (I didn’t have it but someone else in the party did so I cannot say how it tasted). Three (including myself) in our group of 5 people had duck breast but we were disappointed by the toughness of the duck breast. The crème brûlée was good. The selection of the dessert wines was quite special.

I keep coming here because I like the room and the patio. The service is also always amazing BUT I’ve been disappointed with my food every time. Each time Ive thought Maybe it’s because they’re new...then maybe it’s because it’s not busy today...or maybe it’s just too hot today...and finally maybe it’s because it’s their first lunch. I think I’ve learned my lesson 😕. Maybe. Unless they keep serving wine on that pretty patio...
I’ll just eat before I come.
