    Probably my favorite bar in Calgary. The atmosphere and the tasty beverages hit the nail on the head and drive it to absolute perfect satisfaction levels. Still haven't tried the food cuz I get distracted by the bars ambience, scene, and incredible drink menu! As far as the value goes, you'll get the best of the best in experience! From servers like Dolan, to the drinks like the Daywalker. The Wednesday Room would be my Everyday Room recommendation for anyone new to the cocktail scene or Calgary!

    The ambience was unique. The drink selection was on par. Food was delicious and fresh. There was NO one there and although this is usually nice it was odd for how busy the other restaurants were around the area. The hostess was not suitable for her position… Just not the right fit. And the server we were her second table ever. She was peasant and sweet. Overall decent and I hope they get more attendees!

    Service was terrible. There was zero accommodation for any food requests and it took 4mins just to get drinks. I won’t ever take clients here for lunch again.

    Hosted an international co-op student at The Wednesday Room for a unique dining experience in the heart of downtown Calgary. The decor is SO cool and the seasonal menu changes make it exciting for me to see what's new. Highly recommend for lunch & dinner. Evening cocktails are stellar too!

    Needs some patio love and attention. Despite our reservation the front desk was slow to greet us, slow to table us, and our waiter took a while to come initially. Not a great first impression.

    Service was slow (especially given it was lunch time in the heart of downtown) and waitress was not knowledgeable about the menu (food or drink). I have had much better experiences in the past, but service has declined at this spot.

    Good was excellent, atmosphere was great, loved the decor and the mid century modern style of the downstairs dining area. The only ding was the uneven service but a couple of items were proactively removed from the bill by the restaurant so we appreciated that. Overall it was an excellent experience and I would definitely come again

    Amazing all around!! Fantastic menu, which they change in seasons and it stays fantastic when they do! Served family style which is always a bonus if you go with someone you’ll enjoy sharing with. Really fun drink menu, and the type of drinks you don’t mind paying for because who has all those ingredients at home. Also wonderful service, the staff and service was quick and attentive and the floor staff was also really nice!

    We came on a rainy day so the dark interior seemed to feel even colder. The dining room set up is like your gramma's house when all the family comes over; pop up tables around a room. The service is excellent but the menu was small. Not sure I would go again. The novelty of the decor is the reason I'd recommend it to a friend.

    The food was great but small portions. The service was lackluster. Our server seemed overwhelmed by the large party she was also serving and our table felt like a bit of an afterthought. There was also a bartender who continued to come by our table and others asking how things were. This man seemed to be intoxicated as he seemed a bit wobbly when coming by. These elements were quite disappointing for the price point.

    Went here on a Wednesday for the all day Happy Hour and turns out they just changed the menu. When we were greeted there was confusion since the hostess told us 7:45 not sure what that means. She wasn’t clear and not welcoming. The music was good there was a piano guy playing but clashed with the music they have playing. The drinks and food was amazing!

    Management doesn’t seem focused on the patron’s experience. Tip auto set for 18% and up (implies a certain arrogance) No Menus and no QR codes (just odd).

    WE were there for lunch and it was not very busy. Despite that they seated two gentlemen right next to us. Really? And guess what they delivered their order to us. I thought I ordered the pulled pork. It was 90% bun and I have no idea what type of pork chunks they use. Likely from a few nights ago. Very disappointing.
