Great service, relaxed and quiet for a good catch up with a friend. Feels very covid safe with the table spacing.

This is my favorite restaurant in Calgary. Not only they have great food, but service is beyond excellent. I have enjoyed every part of their Menu and their wine collection is unbeatable. Best thing is the high standard service, we always feel welcomed and taking care. All staff has a great knowledge of what they offer. I really love this place.

We were seated in the upper level, at a small cocktail sized table in soft seated lounge chairs almost side by side which made dining and having a conversation difficult. There was one other couple in the room at the time. Zero ambiance, just an empty dead room. The food was great and priced reasonably. The wine list, while extensive, featured everything from “2oz” options (who orders 2oz?) for $7 -$9 (!) to 6oz options upwards of $23!!! Unreal. We go out a lot in this city and have dined at many upscale restaurants around North America. I have never seen anything like it. Quite astonishing. All in all, do better. Very disappointing. Will visit 4th Street again as it is excellent. Never again to this location I’m afraid.

It was a good night, was a little disappointed that our anniversary was not acknowledged in any way. The Server was knowledgeable about the wine and food. The ambiance was beautiful and private, dined on the 2nd floor. The chefs came out and checked on all the tables which really showed that they care

Nice local place... food was good but a little pricey.. don’t eat out that much so might be the same everywhere now.

The atmosphere was good given that the COVID restrictions make it hard to create atmosphere.

Service was good and the whole experience was enjoyable

We eat here fairly often. Brought another couple this time. They had duck which was good but a little undercooked. I had steak as did my husband. They were very tasty and well cooked but an extremely skinny cut. The vegetables were very weak although my husband had fries and said they were good. We hope for a better experience next time!!

Food was great. Wine was great. We sat at the bar and after we asked the bartender for another minute with the menu, we never saw him again. We had to get up twice and find someone else to take our drink AND food orders, and when we ordered appies, and said we will decide on more items after the appies - no one ever came back to ask us if we wanted more food. We also had to get up and find someone to check and see if the 3rd of our 3 appies was coming. It was quite disappointing as I've always enjoyed myself during past visits.

The first waiter was rude and disinterested to the point of us. Other wanting to walk out! Charging 12.00$ for 4 shrimp added to a salad is utterly ridiculous. Then I wasn’t allowed to even show my guest the tiny little cakes I went to a lot of trouble to procure. Even though they were in a sealed box and after being told we couldn’t eat them there due to covid restrictions I requested to at least show them to her while sealed in the box. This was so thoughtless in these most difficult of times when we are all trying to have some kind of restricted lives still.
I would not recommend anyone I know to dine at this establishment...bad attitude, mediocre food and way overpriced.
