Thai Curry Bowl
coconut jasmine rice, curry sauce, mixed vegetables, thai basil, crushed peanuts
Multiple tables available, seated right by the door- undesirable due to amount of foot traffic.
We were not greeted by serving staff for 7 minutes. We were not provided water until that time. We were also not told that only brunch was being served - not the regular menu- until it was time to order.
Restaurant was very cold. Myself and many other guests were wearing jackets. Overall, the worst restaurant experience I have had in a long time.
Was perfect! Staff adhere to Covid protocol so felt safe.
All 4 of us thought food was awesome.
Last time we were there was a couple years ago and we had such awful food we didn't return. We were told to try again by a few friends that have gone and said a new chef was there...totally worth it! We started with appy of dates that we delicious, I had the salmon and it was done to perfection, hubbie had the meatball said very flavorful. We will be back much sooner! Thanks for the good birthday dinner!
They do not accept AMEX. If that is your preferred payment you'll have to consider other options.
It was decent. Pretty standard. Nothing above expectations. Good food
Best steak sandwich around. Portions are a bit smaller but worth every penny.
Love this little gem in South Calgary. The food is always amazing and the staff is top notch. Thanks for helping make our Anniversary extra special! Love the new COVID Protocals. We felt safe and comfortable the entire time. Will be back very soon!
A great dining experience as always. COVID-19 and all.
We went for brunch and it was amazing. The food and waiter were excellent.
Our server was great! Was honest and very eager to help. Food was delicious but could have used a little more sauce. More hollandaise etc. I ordered a London fog and that is not on the menu. Our server Colter went out of his way to make one for me. It was delicious. They entire staff made us feel welcome and not weird, especially with current health regulations etc.
Delicious food, great recommendations and enjoyable atmosphere!
The beets salad was very bland as well as ravioli.
Shrimp appetizer the sauce was spicy & good but look like as presentation goes a frozen appetizer. My daughter enjoyed her burger.
The dates pudding was very good but a greater choice of dessert would be Better
Excellent. Great food and great service. Very friendly staff.
We went to Starbelly after not being there for 2 years and we were very disappointed. Our moscow mules were the worst we've ever had. We had an appetizer, and it took 50 minutes from when we finished our appetizer to when our mains came... during this time it took 30 minutes for them to even check to see if we needed another drink.
The reasoning was "we had a big take out order come in right before you". It's still not acceptable to have your in house guests wait 50 minutes between courses.
Although the server was perfectly lovely, we will not be back any time soon.
Would go back in a heart beat ......great experience from atmosphere to eating! Staff was outstanding 💕
Always great food and service! Very open atmosphere and during covid all precautions were in order to stay safe👍🏻!! Our new favourite place to eat!!
Great atmosphere. Amazing food and reasonable prices. Super staff.
Asked to be in a quiet spot when I made the reservation but there may not be an available area for that. Very open atmosphere. Very loud and foul language from the table next to us made date night atmosphere non existent. I wish hosts would listen for this and try to correct it. Steaks were both undercooked but the quality of cut made it bearable.
Overall it was a poor experience but those smoked old fashioneds were amazing as always. Will try again and hope for better.
Good service and food, more explanation of the gluten free options on the menu please
Steak was a little over cooked. (Asked for medium, and we got a little closer to well done) other wise food was great!
The service is okay, staff don't seem that friendly. Food is good but presentation looks pretty plain.
We sat outside and the music was very loud. They did turn it down a bit for us thank you.
Service was good but you haven’t had a fabulous server since Nick and manager Derek.
Most importantly the food was AMAZING!
I understand there is a pandemic, however this was the absolute worst service I’ve ever received here
Sat on the patio, very well spaced tables outside, amazing happy hour prices and food/drink! Will make this a regular date night outing! :)
Our server Michelle was awesome! The calamari was a favourite.
We recently dined at Starbelly for the first time, to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food, service and wine were all excellent. I would highly recommend eating here!
Food was okay- nothing special. Overpriced. Beautiful decor. Subpar service.
They never disappoint me...I came with friends who had never been there and they were impressed.
Service was wonderful. Food was delicious and the ambience was quiet and romantic .
Great food quality. Highly recommend.
Hostess needs better people skills and guest service skills. Waiter was amazing
We celebrated our anniversary & thank you for a wonderful dinner.
The food was good and came very quickly. Our server was kind and friendly. The one thing we didn't like, was we could see that one of the chefs in the kitchen did not wear his mask covering his nose. It was disconcerting to see it stayed that way, and non of his colleagues said anything either. Otherwise, great night out.
Good food and service, lots of road noise on the patio.
Mid week business lunch on the patio. Restaurant was quiet due and didn't open till right at 12. Service was excellent as was the food. Will go back.
Great interior and good food. Would recommend to a friend
We wanted a random excursion so we asked for them to surprise us with dishes. We had amazing prawns for an appetizer and their signature burger and a plate of seafood for the main dishes with an amazing pudding dessert! Everything was perfect throughout. Thankful for the opportunity to dine here.
Awesome experience. This was my third venture out to a restaurant during the pandemic and it was the best of the three. The venue was appropriately spaced, staff wore masks, no menus (they encourage you to use their website, and yes, they have wifi), and the food and drinks were AWESOME. We sat on the patio and it was perfect. Highly recommend and will be back soon!
The food was fresh and even the classic menu fare had that extra touch. The wine list was also excellent.
Starbelly used to be a favorite of ours, but the last couple of visits have been disappointing. The quality of both the food & service seem to be on the decline.
