The Guild exemplifies a new and exciting take on the finest traditions of butchery, cookery and bar-keeping. The name is inspired by guild halls from the past, which served as a meeting places and secret societies for artists and merchants. Honouring local beef, game and fowl, and utilizing traditional cooking techniques over wood and coal, The Guild chefs are preparing a fitting homage to proud Canadian carnivores.

Best grilled squid in the city and our server was the best! Courteous, knowledgeable and funny! We had a great time. Excellent wine selection! Not rushed. Kudos to Mylene! Great service. Will be back!

I have never given a bad restaurant review before in my life, and I am your typical, polite and amiable Canadian... but the Guild sucked today....
First they didn't have the wine we ordered. Then 15 minutes after ordering our meals, they inform us they had run out of one our meals (how did it take so long to figure that out?), then they got one of the meals wrong altogether (and there were only 3 of us). So did we actually all eat together? No. Did they say sorry. Yes. But by the last faux pas any other restaurant I've been to would have offered some sort of comp out of embarrasment. We were polite, but can't recommend this place.

The Guild is the perfect space for friends to gather. Their Happy hour (3-6) is awesome. The ambiance was festive and our server was spot on.

Apparently steak is there specialty but unfortunately we wouldn’t agree. Came cold and overdone. Service was good. Price was ok. We won’t come back.

It was incredibly noisy! Couldn't carrying on a conversation with the table without yelling at one another. I would have went to a bar if I wanted that kind of atmoshphere

Went for a girls get together/birthday dinner. We split appies and each ordered a steak and some sides. The summer beet salad was the winner for appies. The steaks were cooked perfectly and sides large and shareable. Overall a lovely dinner and wonderful night out. The service was friendly but average.

The smell of wood smoke and leather really adds to the ambience of this restaurant when you walk in. We had an early reservation and it took a while before our server arrived from the time we were seated but once we settled in the service and the food was excellent.

Guild used to be one of my go to places. Recently hosted a work dinner, wine list, service and atmosphere was awesome. The food was just so so. Prime Rib and Short Ribs was a disappointment. They call themselves a steak house but didn't deliver. Much better Steak Houses in Calgary. Wont be back.

We initially made a reso for 7 but one of us was running late and the night of I called to push it back an hour and they easily agreed with no issue. The place looks great and is in a great location. Our server was very polite and attentive and gave good recommendations. Our food came quickly and was delicious and fairly priced. We had steaks which comes with mashed potatoes and a small tomato. I recommend getting an extra side. We had the honey glazed carrots and they were great! We had wine to finish after paying and our sever told us to stay as long as we want and enjoy. Will for sure be going back again!

Fries were soggy and burnt. Fried chicken was not crisp. Fryers are probably not hot enough. Despite being virtually empty and having a reservation we were seated directly between two very noisy groups. Not worth downtown prices.

We hadn’t been to The Guild in two years, however Ryan made us feel like regulars. We were greeted with two glasses of bubbly, and complimentary deviled eggs. Our server Tristan was on top of my wife’s gluten allergy like it was his own, and provided great suggestions for food that would be able to accommodate her. Our food was delicious and cooked to perfection, I had the steak (and I’m particular about it being done rare to medium rare at most) while my wife had the grilled octopus. We ordered the chocolate mousse for dessert to share and again we were given glasses of port on the house to pair with the dessert. I don’t think a dining experience gets better than this.

It had been two years since our last time at The Guild, and I promise we won’t be waiting that long to return. Amazing service, amazing food, for an amazing experience overall. A+!

Took a LONG time to get our food out, even though the restaurant was not busy. Side salad was sent back to the kitchen as it was just a small dish of greens with dressing on it. Don't call it it a salad if it's a few leaves of lettuce. Management did provide cakes to celebrate a birthday which was appreciated. Won't be going back based on wait times to get food, which was excessive for some burgers.
