We all loved the meals We Ordered . Interior design, outstanding. The host was barely audible , asked us for our vaccination cards twice and seemed stoned. We asked to be sat in the basement but he said it was not possible. Later, we went down and there were 3 open tables.

Such a great restaurant! A little hidden on Stephen Avenue, the decor was part modern hipster meets The Shining… and the food was scary good! Came here with friends before seeing a play and the service was great. The waiter was able to make a custom mocktail for me and it was divine! Ordered the fried ciabatta, crispy salmon with quinoa, and a matcha tres leches (yup!) to top it all off. Will definitely be back.

Introduced some more friends to this great place. Great place to meet if you want to talk and not have to yell above the music. Great ambiance, and the cocktails and food are divine especially the deep fried olives!

We enjoyed our time @ the Wednesday room, pretty cool vibe and the food was AMAZING! The only drawback was we found the cocktails a touch pricey (but this is Calgary).

We came in from out of town to try this place on the recommendation of a friend. The food was decent, however the portions were a bit small. What really stood out was the lack of attentive service and care for their guests. During our dinner, an incident happened to occur. While clearing our table, our server accidentally dropped a knife into a glass on the table which had caused it to shatter. The pieces of broken glass ended up falling onto my sister’s lap and all over the seat. She was covered with spilled water and shards of glass. After a couple of half-hearted apologies, we ended up moving tables but the situation wasn’t addressed any further. We’re disappointed with the lack of care shown. Even after bringing my sisters discomfort to the server’s attention, there was no compensation or further assistance offered. We were quite disappointed with how the situation was handled.

The music was way too loud and did not fit the ambience of the decor. No one wants to listen to loud 70’ disco music when they dine. Then, we were told that none of the wine offerings on the menu were available and they had a new wine list! Our server could not tell us what the wines were or what the prices were. It took a while for him to get the information from upstairs. As i recommended this restaurant from a better experience we had a few years ago i was very disappointed. Having salad all of that, the food was good and the value good as well.

Excellent all around experience. Food was delicious! Recommend the glazed pork belly and Cuban nights cocktail. Ask for dining in the basement as it has a cooler ambiance.

Very poor service. We prebooked for a 40th birthday. Arrived on time and were promptly sat at the worst table in the restaurant at the bottom of the stairs where everyone walks past. Asked to move. We’re told it was sold out. However the restaurant was almost empty at 7:30 pm.

As we looked disappointed they did move us. We settled in and suddenly a table of four people was sat within 3 feet of us. They were also uncomfortable because there is a covid outbreak and they were not following standards. Then they had to move that table as well. They were like us made to feel bad and were told they were sold out. They looked as confused as we did.

We ordered two cocktails and prawns. They were great. However when we asked about a different preparation of the oysters we were told no we can’t because we have a huge private party and we don’t have time. So we thought why wouldn’t you have the correct staff then or close the restaurant if you couldn’t provide service. At this point we had decided on entrees and ordered a $90 bottle of wine. We were told that they were in the middle of a menu change in two weeks. So there was not a wine available to compliment what we wanted to order. She said she had a cab sav but we couldn’t have too much because it was their last bottle. At this point I phoned the Palliser hotel and booked a table. We stood up and paid and left. We spent $380 on a wonderful meal and wine at the palliser and bought a $185 bottle of Chardonnay. Thankfully the Wednesday room screwed up so badly that we ended up having an amazing night at the Palliser with a lady that was an excellent server. So a happy 40th was had after all. We have been at the Wednesday room before and had a great experience. This time I couldn’t rate them a zero but that is what they deserve.

My favorite place in the city! The atmosphere is tops (especially if you're a shining fan). Took my best friend from the USA here as a treat and we had a wonderful time. Food is amazing, cocktails are to die for. Must visit spot in Calgary.
