Warning - this is your typical fine dining experience. It's got the old school fancy menu. If you're looking for a modern menu, this is not the place for you. We got a cozy table right by the fireplace. We had the crab cakes and Caesar salad to start, it was run of the mill. The avocado aioli with the... More

We were staying in the hotel and dined here on our first night. A fantastic meal, excellent service and we really appreciated the chef visiting diners to check the meals. I chose the 12 oz New York steak - wow - what a beauty - i enjoyed many good steaks during our 6 weeks in Canada and the USA, but... More

Maybe it's just a Calgary thing, but it seems like an easy breakfast order took forever to be completed and served. I enjoyed my eggs and sausage, but it took a long long time for my tablemates and I to be served after ordering.

We came here on our Staycation anniversary. The hotel offered us a discount in the restaurant and we thought it would be a great opportunity to try it. The food was quite good and the chef has done some nice twists on some classic dishes. It was the service and atmosphere that jumped out the most for us. If you... More

We ate here one evening. The meal was delicious. The service was prompt and friendly. They were very helpful describing the menu and the wine list. Our view of the nearby mountains was beautiful.

A great old restaurant, dark wood, barrel ceilings, tooled leather posts, fireplace, a complete wall with western painting. We had Caesar salad, salmon, cream brûlée, peach Melba. All very good. Also had a great breakfast buffet. Wine list very pricey, begins at $12 glasses and $50 bottles and all others higher.

They have and excellent breakfast buffet and great service. They are not very good at returning phone calls and the open table function didn't work well for me.
