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.

The service, location, ambience is great — Tomahawk was overdone which is disappointing because it’s pricey.

Such an amazing experience!

I've been wanting to visit the Guild for some time as the menu and venue looked amazing online. After finally getting in for a reservation, it definitely did not disappoint.

The service and staff was outstanding, the food was delicious, the menu was easy to choose from, and the entire thing was just amazing.

Looking forward to my next visit!

It was my first time here but also first date. Right from the start the hostesses we're happy to take us to our table I had asked for a window seat in the reservation and I received a window seat was perfect. Andre from the start or later I asked if we had been here before and once he knew we hadn't he told us the best way to experience the menu and it was amazing. The waiter was very professional the manager came by at least three times and the food was absolutely perfect so definitely won't be coming back.

If you go Happy Hour and appetizers are not bad.
But the main course are not tasty at all.
Way to salty and the fish is dry. They said that is home made pasta, but i do not think so. Or maybe it is to salty that make me not even want second bit.

Service is good by the way

Super dernière soirée à Calgary grâce au super service que nous avons eu à The Guild. Très vaste choix de cocktails et de vin au verre avec une très belle carte des alcools. Menu très varié avec plusieurs options d’extra disponibles. Viande succulente et très bien apprêtée. Service sympathique, profès et chaleureux. Déco moderne avec une salle à manger en demi-cercle qui met au cœur du restaurant la super cuisine à aire ouverte avec un bar en premier plan. Le restaurant est situé dans l’emblématique édifice du magasin La Baie. Ce qui ajoute une charme au décor. La terrasse est sous les voûtes et colonnades de l’édifice ce qui protège des intempéries et ajouter au décor du restaurant. Nous avons adoré notre souper. 10/10

My hubby and I came for our anniversary dinner. The service was absolutely incredible. Everyone was so welcoming and helpful. My hubby had the 32oz steak and said it was amazing! I honestly didn’t love my meal, I found it lacking in flavour a bit. However, it wouldn’t stop me from returning and trying something else! It might just not have been my cup of tea. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience!

The food was excellent, but the service just OK. Our waitress was nice but a little bit inattentive and we weren't asked if it was an occasion when we were seated despite my mentioning it was a birthday dinner when I made the reservation. We started out on the patio but a storm came and it got very windy. We weren't asked if we'd like to move inside even though the wind was blowing so much so we had to ask to be reseated as we were getting cold and dusty. We plan to try the Guild again sometime in the future as the venue looked quite nice and the food and drinks were great, but the service let those down a bit on this occasion.

The steak is very good but the rest of the meal was underwhelming. Potatoes and fries were cold and our sides were 10 mins later than our mains. Very slow service
For the price there are better dining options downtown

Very attentive service from Tess, she made us feel welcome and answered all our questions regarding the menu as it was our first time at the Guild. We had the chicken liver, beef tacos and bone marrow for appetizers, would order again except bone marrow which had very little marrow. The lamb sirloin was delicious as was the hamburger. Beer was cold and frothy and it was awesome to be dining on the patio on Stephen Avenue!

The Guild provided a nice setting for our family gathering and birthday celebration. The wide variety of drinks were fun and very tasty. The jerk chicken, mahi-mahi, and lamb excellent! Unfortunately the pasta was undercooked, not quite al dente. Service was good, not great. We were disappointed when no dessert was available.
