    Great experience! Was a first time for me and a revisit for my partner, as last time he was in was a few years ago before the vibe was switched up and the A/C was out and they were out of both the tomahawk and the porterhouse. The cocktails were delicious and this could easily become a go-to spot for drinks. The food was fantastic as well, everything was cooked well, and as someone who typically steers away from any and all fat on steak, this was perfectly rendered and the cook was exactly what we ordered. Service was phenomenal. Our server was so sweet and nailed the pace perfectly for the vibe of our evening. The two managers that were on managed the environment well and supported our server’s service as well. We will definitely be back!

    Steak Salad is unrivaled in downtown calgary. I modify mine with olive oil, salt and pepper. It is so good, I can never explore the rest of the menu.

    The jerk chicken is amazing! You have to try it out. Just enough heat and balanced with the coleslaw. Excellent! Someone should give wine service training to the service staff though. That's the only complaint I have.

    Everything was great. Although I don't understand why once your meal is over and plates cleared the waitress no longer attends to the table. No offer of more drinks, dessert or the bill. We had to waive someone over for all the above

    Our meal at The Guild was very good. However, we were disappointed with our wine order. The bottle that was brought to us was not the one we ordered. When we noticed it was not the Malbec, Catena 2019 $72, we brought it up to the server’s attention. In fact you also did not carry the Malbec, Lagarde Altas Cumbres 2019. We then ordered the Grenache Blend 2019 Tautabel $79. It has been my experience that when the restaurant is not able to offer the wine ordered, you first advise the customer. You do not replace it with a different wine and hope that they will not notice? We requested to be charged $72 for the Grenache bottle and were told that we already had a glass of the “wrong Malbec” for free! Unbelievable!

    The ambiance of the restaurant was nice, noise level was pretty manageable and you can comfortably maintain conversation with your table without having to yell at each other. The food was decent too, the steak was definitely the star of the night and would be the reason why we would re-visit in the future. My only gripe was the table we were given was disappointing. I booked a table in advance for our anniversary and was given a side, hallway small table for two. The restaurant wasn’t fully packed and there were booths that were available. It would have significantly increased our dining experience and first impression of the restaurant had we been given a better table, since we have reserved in advance and in the booking we marked that we were celebrating a special occasion. In addition, our server was also not the best. She was pleasant and friendly but the service quality needed more work. Upon taking our order we asked for a drink menu since there wasn’t one on the table, she looked around and said there was none available so if we could “google the drink menu” and she will try and find us a physical menu. When she said this I took a quick glance and saw that there were some menus on tables close to us that were not being used. Throughout our meal we were also needing some drinks at certain points, but when she would walk by she did so without looking at us or stopping by that it was hard for us to even flag her down for a drink/additional orders.

    Ordered the Tomahawk steak and it came out cold as well as the side dishes. They offered to warm it up, came back way over cooked and the side dishes were the original one and still not warm and soggy after they attempted to reheat it. When we asked for the bill the waitress knew we were not impressed with the meal at all, and the manager only gave us 15% off the one menu item. So we still were made to pay over $160 for a menu item that was served cold to the touch. To top it off they seated a loud group of woman celebrating a birthday whom were bar hoping and drunk. We will not be back, after spending $360 for a meal we could not eat expecting a epic meal it was a total disappointment.
