Great food and service
No Menu Monday was fantastic! Each surprise course was delicious and our server was well informed and attentive to our needs. Thanks to Workshop Kitchen for a memorable evening.
Tried the three course set menu for my mom’s birthday. Truly a disappointment. The first course was a radish salad with overly salty pork bits that I sent back. Second course I had the sirloin tip. That was very mediocre at best. My mom had the rock cod. It was tasteless and dry. We sent the rock cod back and ordered the chicken tagine which was acceptable. For dessert we shared the chocolate fondant. None of the items were memorable. I came to this restaurant last year and ordered the mussels and a molten lava chocolate cake. Those items were phenomenal. Not sure what happened this year. Perhaps the head chef is no longer there. Fully disappointed. Over priced. Will not recommend or return again.
Wow! One of the most creative and delicious restaurants I've been to in a long time.
We had the improv menu after our server recommended that this is what Workshop is known for. Although you do not have to order this way, I highly recommend it. It makes for a fun and unique dining experience. The server was able to recall every item on the plate without prompt for each of our 5 dishes, and was able to easily answer any questions, he really went above and beyond to make the experience one to remember. We will certainly be coming back!
Great food and great service!
Inch was fine
Great food. Cauliflower was excellent, as was the Taco-styled salad and rice pudding. The enchilada was a bit average, and the lettuce had some brown parts (which is odd for a restaurant), but overall I was impressed and would go back.
Excellent value Lougheed lunch with colleagues. Delicious soup and main fish course. Portions were perfect for lunch. There was no room for the brownie, so we bagged that for a treat the next day! Overall, a very lovely meal and all done in about an hour.
Excellent food and great service.
I was advised to always try the daily special - this is my second time having the seafood feature and both have been amazing. Try this place- you won't be disappointed.
This is one of my go-to spots for weekday lunch, girls night, anniversary dinner, etc. Highly recommend the Lougheed Lunch - it's a great value! Their Improv menu is a great dinner option, too - I've never been disappointed by the courses or the pairings!
Incredible service and food! Never felt rushed, very friendly! Highly recommend this place!
Best food in Calgary, hands down! Tremendous staff, servers, and the friendliest hostess ever.
Casual but fine dining. Creative use of colour, tastes and textures. The braise itself (Lougheed lunch) can carry the menu.
Great food as always. Had the Lougheed lunch and all courses were great!
Food was flavorful, carefully prepared and creatively presented. Some of the best dishes we have ever had. The excellent quality is matched with a high price.
Seriously fantastic. We had the three course tasting menu with wine pairings. We swapped the dessert for the cheese dish. Simply incredible experience.
Excellent food and service. I was told not to miss the daily special (seafood) and that advice was true!
Will absolutely be back. Loved that the beer menu was all Alberta made!
Will be back!! Thanks guys for a great experience!
This was my first time at Workshop and I was impressed. We were on a tight timeline and the server made sure we got everything quickly. The food was fantastic (butter chicken) and the atmosphere was great.
The food was absolutely delicious. It had to be one of the best downtown dining experiences we have had in months. We would absolutely go back again.
A really enjoyable experience for my birthday. Food is unique and delicious , but our server really made the difference. He was so welcoming and gave us detailed info about the dishes.
Can’t wait to go back!
Great food as always! We had the Lougheed lunch and it was fantastic! The soup was creamy and had great flavor, everyone was happy with their entrees and then dessert did not disappoint!
😍 Always delivers exciting and delicious dining experiences. Love this place!!
Food was wonderful as was the serving staff. We also enjoyed great wine selection.
We had a wonderful night to celebrate my birthday at Workshop. The five course meal and wine pairing was excellent. Great flavors, great service and a memorable night.
Been here many times. The food is always amazing. The service is excellent and the ambiance is perfect.
This was our second time there and we were just as impressed as the first time. Do the 3 or 5 course tasting menu with pairings. You won't be disappointed!
Fabulous experience from beginning to end. Jennifer was an outstanding waitress and recommended having the trout as half the fish, rather than all rockfish. We shared the fish plate with the fried brussel sprouts. Every part of the meal had depth of flavour and the trout was absolutely amazing - literally melt in your mouth. We loved it all, the sprouts were sweet, the beet jam, the pakora, the rockfish - all amazing.
Great job Workshop kitchen and culture - the best meal we've had in years. We are on our way across the country and hope we get another meal of that standard before we hit Newfoundland - somehow I doubt it!
We enjoyed a marvelous meal. One of my guests enjoyed the 3 course Improv and the other the 5 course. The cuisine, presentation, and service (Bobby) were exquisite. I'm so pleased I chose to bring my out of town guests here. You did not disappoint. Many thanks!
The improve cuisine was outstanding!! Will be recommending The Workshop to everyone
The wine was overpriced, I felt.The food and service was outstanding.
We had an amazing experience for our wedding anniversary!! Bobby was an awesome server and the food was fantastic!! What we found even more exceptional was that the staff filled out a card for our anniversary; we would highly recommend friends, family, strangers ;) to visit for an incredible night out!
Unfortunately the kitchen was out of 3 of 6 of their main dishes including the two I’d been eying. So that was disappointing. The food we did get was creatively combined ingredients and delicious. Our waiter often didn’t stay at the table long enough for me to ask for what I wanted and wasn’t very personable. The wine wasn’t great but my cocktail was awesome. Great atmosphere. I’d try it again and hope they actually have everything on their menu.
My moms 70th birthday! Everything fabulous and they even had a card for her!!
Food was good. Maybe I should have been more adventurous I went with a sandwich. Lol
It was alright,
The most notable thing was the service. The Hostess was so nice, as was the server. Great bubbly fun personalities and made light conversation which seems to be often falling to the wayside these days. I’d definitely go back and try something more exciting off the menu
The 3-course chef's choice meal was so tasty & flavourful. My sister had the kale salad & quail entree. Everything was top notch!!
My duck breast entree is pictured.
Quick service on a lunch hour. Loved the menu options - the Lougheed Lunch is a great way to simplify the ordering process.
LOVE this place. Service is excellent. Food is so creative. They manage to make even food I normally dislike into something I can't eat enough of. Menu is always changing, and gets better with every visit. Also they are very accommodating (and not judgemental) about dietary requests. The daily braise at lunch is outstanding for us carnivores. Must try.
Fantastic food. You must order the gnocchi!
As good as the food was, and it was delicious, the service provided by our server Jennifer was even better. We found the Workshop online & are glad we listened to the reviews. If you have a chance to check it out we definitely recommend it.
