The food, service and ambiance was amazing. The cauliflower curry is the best I’ve ever had and the burgers are in my top three of my favourite places to eat.

Very happy to be able to dine in again at Shoe and Canoe! Their covid protocol was impressive - very socially distanced seats, cleaned and sanitized tables, hand sanitizers on many stations including the elevators (From the parkade) and something TOTALLY NEW - they give us little brown baggies to slip our masks in. Nice!

We were able to try their happy hour as well and they have $10 wings and $6 drinks (wine and beer on tap). The menu, while considerably small, is still fabulous as they are tasty and good sized. Our server Liz was very gracious. The gentlemen who welcomed us are all in masks and have provided us warm service!

Tips: If you are parking at the basement, let the front desk know and the 2 hours is free. Also, if you are a Marriott Bonvoy member, dining at the Delta gives you bonus points. 👍🏼

Thank you for a wonderful dinner service!

For a pre pandemic night during calgarys downtown dining week it was rather empty. The location is beautiful inside, not just another hotel restaurant! The server was nice but the food was slow and the portions were very small for the price.

It’s a great place to go for drinks, and the food is good but the portions are ridiculously small. And the cheese board is terrible and they did not warn us that blue cheese was on the board until we got it, we didn’t end up eating that piece which makes the whole dish not worth it.

The main reason that we went was here our friend Dean Jarvey sing. He was great! we really enjoyed. We arrived about 5:40 PM ordered dinner and enjoyed the music. Once we ate we moved to his table and joined he and his wife. It was a very pleasant evening.

I've been here twice and enjoyed both times. Great food to share - charcutterie, cheese boards, and the curried cauliflower is a must. Bright, nice décor, lovely servers...I highly recommend and need to go back on a weekend for brunch.

We had a nice meal and enjoyed the shoe & canoe. The service was good for the first half of our visit but then after we had been served our meal, it was not as good. My husband actually had to go find someone to order another beverage, there was no one to be found, not even at the bar. Not a huge deal but not the quality you'd expect on a Saturday evening or anytime really.

Everything was outstanding! From the greeting at the door to the last sip of coffee. Being the lunch rush out food arrived quickly and was hot - if we had wanted to we could have easily been in and out within the 1 hour lunch mark but it was so good we hung around for a while. We will definitely be returning. Thank you

The restaurant was very open and roomy with lots of natural light. We were there at lunch and two people ordered the express lunch while 2 ordered off the menu and everything came out very quick. The food was delicious and we plan to go back to try out more of it.

We’ve been their before, and knew what to expect and were not disappointed. The food was great, the service was great, and we were able to have a comfortable conversation with friends without having to compete with loud background noise. Overall, we were so comfortable we were there for three hours.

Went here on a dinner service with another couple and we had a wonderful time.

Melanie, one of the servers, made sure that we have enough room for our food and offered us the enclosed space so we can catch up with our friends. The other server Seunghee was equally attentive to our needs and provided great service as well.

Our food were delicious! The pork belly appetizer was tasty, the charcuterie was bountiful! Our mains came in good portions as well.

Overall, we had a great time at Shoe and Canoe!

Food and service was excellent. Short rib pappardelle was delicious - short ribs were tender, the pasta perfectly cooked. The tri-tip was cooked perfectly to medium rare. Loved the vinaigrette on the salad, but the green beans didn’t need the garlic. The horseradish was nice and spicy.
Overall a great meal.

This is a beautifully decorated space and has an enjoyable atmosphere. It’s unfortunate that people don’t get to this end of town outside of the work week. The ambiance would have scored higher if there was more than 5 other tables eating...it’s a large space and it felt empty.

In regards to the food, it was terrific. The chicken wings were hot and crispy and came with 2 dipping sauces. The lamb entree was cooked perfectly, and the staff were able to make substitutions to accommodate my lifestyle.

The service was good, however there were a few instances where we were looking for our server. I would have rated higher if she came around a bit more.

Overall a great meal.

We had fantastic service. We were a group of 6, who became 8, two were celiac and one had mobility issues. We had to move tables (because of the mobility) and nothing we asked for or did was a problem. The servers were attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was fantastic and the food was good too! It was a lovely surprise for a hotel "pub". I'd go back!

Went here for a date night, but I didn't realize this was a hotel restaurant. I was looking for an upscale pub, (which is somewhat is), but it has a lot of travellers so is pretty casual, and very brightly lit. Not very cozy feeling. Food was decent and service was very good. I like that they have local craft beer on tap and good cocktails.

Our last visit to the Shoe and Canoe was outstanding!

We had great service, flavorful food, and better - in wonderful price point too! Our seat was setup at the back of the area so we had great space to ourselves.

I also like the fact that they acknowledged our birthday celebration based on the notes on the reservation.

We will return soon!

Enjoyed Shoe and Canoe. Good choices on the menu and our waiter went the extra mile with accommodating a special request we had for dessert. Really ppreciate restaurants like Shoe and Canoe that use local ingredients. Draft beer prices are a little out of line at $8, although one of us took advantage of the Happy Hour draft at $5. Food could have been served a bit hotter, but was tasty. Business was a little slow which it made it quieter dining for us and very nice decor and layout in the restaurant. Off the beaten track from Stephen Ave which was another reason for our choice and we will be back for sure.
