    The room is great. Comfortable. Not too loud. The server was kind but definitely overwhelmed. Our appy showed up before our cocktails. Dinner came and was a mixture of warm and room temp. Under seasoned, with a mystery piece of “something” on my plate. The server was doing her best to make up for it, between being run off her feet. Feels more like a “burger and a beer” kinda place maybe. If something more elevated is the goal, then the food and service need to be stepped up. $200 for mediocre dinner doesn’t feel like a good value.

    I'm not a great person to write a review on gourmet food as it always leaves me with a bit of indigestion. That said, it tasted like heaven and the other diners enjoyed their meal immensely. Service was impeccable and timely. The portions were not huge but the food was so rich you would not want big portions.

    Happy hour food we ordered was gross, had the nachos and pork belly sliders. The nachos were a few chips smothered in Con Queso sauce and the pork on the slider was fat, no meat. The only good part was the beer. I would never go back.

    This was our first visit to Shoe & Canoe. Our choice was due to its proximity to Theatre Calgary. The location was good, we were able to walk to our show.

Service was good, it was quiet, clean and cozy.

    The food was extremely disappointing, we ordered the Bison Brisket sandwich/burger… on the menu it listed it was covered in cheese curds and pickled onions. We counted two cheese curds and a few slivers of onion. The brisket itself was very dry and there was not enough sauce to make it appetizing. We had already sent back the loaded nachos because the only part of the nachos that were warm was the skillet the nachos came in. Would not recommend, and won’t be returning

    We went to dinner with a coworker/friend and the food was amazing! The ambiance was very chill and good for a dinner where you want to chat. The service was ok, but our server seemed to need a bit of coaching on how to bring value adds to her service. For example, she asked if we wanted wine and then handed us the menu and left, where she could have asked what we were looking for and made recommendations.

    Terrible experience, they shut down the event and we got no notice. Spend money on an uber and getting ready only to show up and be turned away because the event was cancelled. Incredibly inconsiderate, will not be going to any future events or the restaurant.

    We would like the waiter to know what you are getting in each meal I:E not knowing what soup of the day was and what ingredients are in a green salad (my wife ordered the green salad which wasn’t green, so it was sent back and in return got a bowl of lettuce). It might also be wise to put fries on the menu because to us it looked like most people sent the kettle chips back, which we done the previous night.

    The staff set us up with a long table for 15 of our party. They were amazing and we somehow managed to also have a live musical show from a local artist. The food was amazing, the drinks were prefect and the service was excellent.

    Being Mother’s Day, it was not even busy. As in tables where not full, no line ups to get in even though we had a renovation. Communication is not very good there as two separate people called on two separate days asking to confirm details. Unfortunately with it not being busy, was still a long wait between being sat and anyone to check on us. Then it took a long time get get our food, almost 45mins and was lukewarm. We were checked on once between receiving our food and getting the bill. During our time at the table, another table was sat well when we ordered. They were sat, ordered, ate and was paying their bill the same time as us. The food did actually taste very good though!

    With friends we have a "breakfast club" - been to all the "name" hotels and restaurants for a few years. We all agreed that this was the best food and service we had received to date. We do not normally repeat with the same restaurant but it will be difficult to stay away.

    Location was nice and food was good. Service was a bit below average for how upscale the restaurant is. Overall had a very good date night.

    Great food & service. Unfortunately, the noise level was high due to a birthday party that was happening.
