    Service excellent and attentive. Food wonderful except eggs Benny came on a postage stamp size piece of toast so had to order a side of toast. Coffee was so good we ordered seconds. Love the cozy atmosphere.

    Food was delicious. Noise level was so so. We made the reservation for 4 adults, then called and added 2 kids with one high chair, however when we arrived the change was not logged and there was no high chair. Half our party ordered assorted starters for their meal while two ordered starter and entrees. The platters came first, then maybe 10 minutes later the starter for two, finally about 30 minutes after that the remaining two entrees arrived. The four people who ordered platters had already finished their meals and had their plates cleared. It was poorly timed and awkward for the whole group. This was at no point acknowledged by the server.

    The menu online is not what we got presented at the table. What we were presented was both more expensive and not appealing. When we asked if we could get what was online we were told they could not. We went for Italian or Mediterranean and it really was neither and felt like we had been conned into making the trip down. As a result, we got up and walked out. Perhaps it should have been an indication of things when Vendome had seating available at prime time on a Friday.

    The night in France night at Vendome was absolutely amazing. We already love this local bistro for brunch and lunch but the evening on sept 8th was exquisite. Think French fine dining with the full prix fixe menu only $65 and $35 for wine pairings. The meal was spectacular, clearly took them days to prepare for and undoubtedly one of the best dining experiences I have ever had.

    VendomeResponded on September 21, 2022Hi Chris, I'm so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience! Hope to see you for A Night in Portugal on October 6th!

    Got rid of their chicken and waffles on menu, disappointing portion sizing as well. If you were a restaurant for elves I'd be jocular, however, an elf I am not... Lamb was quite salty, gravy still gets a ++, but sadly nothing will ever replace those chicken and waffles.

    First time there. We were placed in an area with a large group of very loud people and a family with crying toddlers. I asked that we be moved. No luck as we were told the restaurant was full. We found it extremely difficult to have a normal conversation.

    This was my first experience dining here. It was lunchtime. My guest and I were seated, as requested, in as quiet a spot as possible. From start to finish, all was perfect. Professional service, great food, beautiful venue. We had such a relaxing time that it was hard to leave. We ended our meal with delicious coffee. First class.

    Went for lunch - waiter was nice, food was ok - salty fries took up the majority of the plate, there was a dog in a dog carrier at the next table and it kept barking. Overall not impressed. The lad working behind the coffee counter wasn’t very helpful.

    Our second time for dinner, great experience both times. Food was delicious and well presented, service was attentive. I have a food allergy and when we placed our appetizer order the kitchen advised appetizers contained ingredients I would have a reaction to. I felt confident in my further choices. On our first visit we were seated behind the host desk and lingered over our meal. Second visit we were in main dining area and found it rather noisy, impossible to have a conversation, thus rushed through our meal.

    VendomeResponded on August 9, 2022Thank you for your kind words! I'll pass the compliments on to our team.

    The location and service are great. The food is very average though. The menu is unimaginative, which is fine when executed well. However, all of the dishes we ordered tasted quite bland and lacking in flavor overall. We were unimpressed, and rather baffled as to how this ended up on a "Best of Calgary" list.

    Vendome came out of the pandemic with refreshing and ambitious changes that have elevated the dining experience significantly. The dinner menu is sophisticated and most importantly, tasty. It is easy to share a range of dishes in any combination you desire. We enjoyed the smashed potatoes and wild mushroom arancini along with a slightly less interesting Serrano crostini. The potato dish provided a nice supply of arugula to make sure we got our greens, and the arancini was nothing short of sublime. The beer menu is small but sufficient and their coffee is close to some of the best in the city (still a little inconsistent and needing more staff training to get the firm foam and attractive design). The table service is excellent, with cheerful and knowledgeable staff.

    Very disappointed by the meal. The menu on open table does not match the restaurants menu. Had pasta with about 1/2 cup of sauce and chicken. Not worth the price. Asked for parmigiana cheese and they said it would be $1.50 extra. Really?
