We went to Murrieta's last night before going to Theatre Calgary. We arrived at 5:45 p.m. and the restaurant was empty. I could not believe it. We had great service by server named Bobby. We enjoyed pull pork sliders, and hummus for starters. We both had pasta dishes and they came out great. I would recommend this place for a... More

We had a great dinner here. The ambience is nice, staff were very attentive. I had lamb chops, which were very tasty. The wine card had a good selection. I can definitely recommend this restaurant.

Good selection of wines and nice place for full meal or after work drinks. I go there consistently on my Calgary business trips.

The location and ambience are great. The staff are friendly and attentive without becoming meddlesome. The food, however, does not match the price. Entrees begin in the low $20s and reflect the quality and expectations of restaurants charging 30% less. I don't mind paying more to get a top quality dining experience. This restaurant, however, only delivers the appearance of... More

Had lunch here with family while shopping downtown. Very pleased with all meals. It was quite quiet in there with quick service. It might have been quieter than usual since we were there during boxing week. Will definitely be back next time I'm in that area.

Walked to Murrieta's from the Palliser as recommended from the concierges desk. We were under dressed for such a nice place but they were warm and welcoming anyways and still placed us in the dining room as per our request. The staff was warm and attentive and the manager was involved as I could see he was working hard as... More

Worth the drive into the city, and the cold winters walk, and the fight to find parking in downtown Calgary... every bit worth it! Well mostly! The ambiance and setting is gorgeous! The food and drinks are just right! The service is ok.. we got there December 16 at 4p, maybe this is midway through holiday serving because the staff... More

It was our wedding anniversary and we were excited to try this restaurant to celebrate. ... but no sooner we got there it turned sour. My husband has a mobility disability plus cancer so climbing stairs is very difficult. We tried accessing the elevator but no access. He huffed and puffed up the stairs. When he brought it up to...

I am very sorry you felt your time was ruined at the restaurant that evening. We do have access issues with the elevator, it is locked unless we call it up to the 2nd floor. This is beyond our control and lies with the building owner. We train our Hostess to treat all customers with respect and I apologize if... More

We were introduced to this restaurant by friends a few years ago. It has become our go to restaurant whenever we visit either on business or for pleasure. The service is great starting with the front end people. The menu is diverse and the food is always great. As for quality, quantity and price, it is hard to find a... More
