It was fantastic. The service was impeccable. Everything was amazing. They even made us our own cocktails that weren't on the menu. Will definitely go back asap.

Absolutely a must for the experience. The nostalgic 70s look downstairs, perfect seating setup, perfect volume and choice of tunes... Then there is the appetizers. Full of flavor, presentation is on par, portion is perfect for two. I suggest you come here, select some fun cocktails and try one of each appetizer and just have the winter salad as a main, if you have room. Oysters are east coast, nothin better. Cauliflower brined and grilled with some amazing sauces. The Short rib taco... more please. Yea, this place wont disappoint.

LOVE The Wednesday Room! First place that made me start coming around to Calgary when I moved nearby! The menu is always amazing, and the price point is good but don't feel gauged (which allows us to order more - thank you!). The service is always great as well, and the servers always have great suggestions when we can't decide. Love the ambiance and music. Only tiny things we noticed, when my wine was empty our server came over multiple times with dishes and to refill water, but didn't offer a refill. Just a little strange as I would have ordered more had she. And when sanitizing between guests, only the table is sanitized not the seating. Highly recommend to everyone, especially the Matcha Tres Leches. WOW.

From the time we were greeted to the time we thanked the waitress, the experience was fantastic. Ordered cocktails followed by oysters and short rib tacos. Entrees we ordered the Waugh burger which melted in your mouth and the jerk duck bowl which was fall apart delicious. A delicious night.

I loved my experience here. My server was great and friendly. also the ambiance is great I will definitely be coming back. I love the menu it's so hard to choose but everything looks and sounds delicious. I had the jerk duck just as an experiment and it was worth it. My only issue was I wanted a more fruity drink from the cocktails menu. Which is just a me thing I guess. 10 out of 10, I recommend for food but I was sat next to the kitchen which was inconvenient because I could smell the propane or whatever gas they were using. Which was uncomfortable but the staff are doing the best they can to keep everyone comfortable with the restrictions and all so. Overall a great experience.

We sat in the basement portion at a table for two. We were comfortably spaced from others and the noise level was low, which made for very easy conversation.

We tried 3 appetizers which were very healthy size portions. The menu looked excellent, I hope to try more again sometime in the future.

Really unique cocktails and friendly service! Great place to catch up with friends as it is not too loud. The music is also thematic and "retro" to match the lounge decor (always love some ABBA).

Food was excellent, as usual, and their unique drink menu is always a good feature. The service was not up to par, as there weren't enough servers, and we were constantly looking for our server. Understandably, COVID probably affected staffing decisions, but the insult to injury was when it came time to pay, the machine's tipping options started at 18% and went up from there. Presumptuous.

Still, it was a good girls' night out. I'd recommend to friends and I'd go back again.

We were so excited to check out the Wednesday room on our trip to Calgary. It was great food, good specials, staff was awesome. We didn’t know there was an upstairs and that we had to request the downstairs lounge which is the area they advertise on social media. They did put us downstairs but it was in the back and it wasn’t a great spot. Next time we know to request the lounge downstairs. Still a great time.

The food was good and our server(the bartender) was great but we made a reservation and expected a somewhat nice table and they shoved 3 people on a table that barely fit one person. When we asked the hostess if she had anything else open, she gave us attitude and interrupted us even though we hadn’t finished our question which really killed our vibe. Other than the attitude from the hostess the food, drinks and ambiance were great.

Amazing spot! The basement is so intimate and quaint. The lighting is perfect for a more casual romantic date night out.
Food was delicious and I love how the drink list gives you an either or option!

Was originally sat at a table just off the stairs leading downstairs which felt not very private and was right under a speaker. Asked the host if there was another table and she gladly helped us. Our server was friendly and made great cocktail recommendations. The food and atmosphere was very nice and they had a great mix of music playing. Will definitely be back,
