I'd assume it's because we've been locked down into our homes for just shy of a year, but I don't think so! This restaurant was amazing! My spouse and I went for a date night because... well with COVID, we've stayed home. We were greeted...at the door with a gentleman giving complimentary samplings of feature wine. We were promptly shown to our table and the atmosphere was stunning. I ordered the F&P sour, and my spouse had a thyme and elderflower cocktail. Both were delicious. We had the chickpea fried Calimari for an appie, and it was light, crispy and absolutely fantastic. We shared a bottle of wine and for an entree I had the 7oz tenderloin with black truffle butter. Easily the best steak I've ever had. My spouse had the wild boar chop and raved about it. The service was fantastic, our server was friendly and efficient. It's an expensive restaurant, not a typical weekday casual dinner type idea, but we knew and expected that and was well worth every penny. We live near by and will come here often for date nights!More

We decided to pre-order the charcuterie platter (with double meat) as well as a few other dishes for pickup on Dec.24 for husbands bday. We have dined in this restaurant a few times and always had great service/food. This was definitely not one of those...occasions. The only communication we had after we ordered was the receipt .. we tried to call before we headed over to pick the order up but there was no answer..tried numerous times unsuccessfully so we just headed to the restaurant. The parking lot was full and there was a huge lineup of people waiting to pick up orders and no one from the restaurant coming out to explain what the delay was ..very frustrating!! When we finally received our order and got home we we were very disappointed in the charcuterie platter which was supposed to have double meat (which we paid an extra $20 for - total charcuterie platter was $80). You will see in the pictures attached how much meat was supposed to be a "double meat" portion. After this experience I'm sure we won't be supporting this restaurant again.More

Order on line only to have it 55 minutes late and then cold. You have to pre pay so nothing you can do after they give you crap food and crap service. Stay away. Hopefully they revive once Hinshaw wakes up and lets businesses run...properly.More

As we we only wanted a very quick meal to take out, we had an amount of money left on our gift card that we wanted to use up. My wife ordered ahead for a simple hamburger and fries. A beautiful restaurant, nice setting and...very well laid out. When the bill arrived I nearly fell through the floor being it came to some $2 dollars for 2 hamburgers and fries. I rally didn't want to but the place. When I got home, my wife served up the meal. I was expecting a fantastic meal. I had to grab the kitchen chair because I could believe what I was seeing. The fries were the skinniest I have ever seen and the burger was no better. It was soggy and runny. I am not making this up or out to destroy the restaurant s reputation. BUT, for $42 it was disgusting. Truthfully, I would rather have gone to Mac Donald's, or A & W. The burger was tasteless, runny and soggy. I wouldn't recommend this establishment to anyone.More

Flores and Pine had great Covid policies, an excellent atmosphere, and awesome food. The servers wore masks, the tables were distanced, and they sanitized everything. I felt very safe eating there. They had about three different “wings” of the restaurant, plus a patio. The patio...had mosquito screens and a roof for an all weather porch. Most importantly, the food was exceptional. The pizzas melted in your mouth, and the burgers were perfect. All in all, the restaurant was great and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.More

Worst over the phone customer service I have experienced in a long time. With recent world events I thought we would support a locally owned restaurant for our anniversary. We made a reservation 2 weeks ago, called 4 days before to confirm with them that...if the weather turned we would be able to sit inside. I was told yes that wouldn’t be an issue at all. Get a call two hours before our reservation to tell us that we will have to stay on the patio though there is a rain storm because they can’t now accommodate us indoors. Super annoyed as it’s our anniversary and we were excited to try it out, arranged to have the kids looked after so we could celebrate just the two of us. The girl I talked to on the phone got the Manager Dennis on the phone to see if he could help or accommodate us. First thing he asked is what day did you call and ask, I explained I wasn’t sure, I said maybe Tuesday and he said oh well we aren’t open on Tuesdays. Oh sorry my mistake Wednesday then, he proceed to talk over me and say he couldn’t do anything. I was basically out of luck either I’m on the patio with a bit of coverage from the weather or maybe he can get us into the lounge but it would be loud because of their prearranged event. He kept talking over me, I asked him to let me talk and that if he could stop talking over me and he says “oh my dear I’m not talking over you”as he continued to talk over me. I’m annoyed with their customer service as he could have chosen to be kinder and more understanding that we are disappointed about this arrangement now, a bit of kindness goes along way with people. Even just an apology would have been great, trying to book us in for another evening. I cancelled the reservation even though I know he wasn’t upset about it. Thanks Dennis for disappointing us on a night we were looking forward tooMore

We went to Flores and Pine to celebrate 2 birthdays in March just before the Great Lockdown of 2020. We've been meaning to go to F&P for a while and the birthdays plus a City-wide Dine Calgary promotion made this a great opportunity to try...it out. F&P isn't technically in Calgary. It just off the 1A Highway (aka Crowchild Trail) to Cochrane, Canmore and Banff on the south side of the Highway just up from a Centro gas station. This is important as if you are unfamiliar with the area you could miss the restaurant which is surrounded by trees and a tall fence. The restaurant itself is in a seemingly large building however, the parking lot is surprisingly small. We had problems finding a parking spot. While walking into the the restaurant, I noticed a sizable screened-in outdoor lounge/eating area. This would be a great spot to eat or linger after a meal during Calgary's short summer of 2 months or less. I imagine they have heaters which means you could sit outside late spring and early fall. Something to keep in mind. Once inside we were met by a friendly hostess who took our coats and quickly showed us to our table. We had made reservations which is a good thing as the restaurant was nearly full notwithstanding it was mid-week and we had an early seating time. I recommend making reservations, even on a weeknight, if you are planning to dine at F&P. On the way to the table we wandered through the bar, which seemed small given the building's dimensions. I noticed that behind the bar they had a couple of vacuum wine dispensers - a good sign if you drink wine by the glass. Surrounding the bar were multiple TVs all tuned to sporting events. Once at our table, we ordered drinks. Only 2 of our group of 4 were drinking as the other 2 were tagged to drive home. Being a special occasion dinner, I ordered the "Premium Champagne Flight" which, the drinks list says, is a "Selection of 3 Champagnes". The flight cost an aggressive $70.00. Imagine my disappointment when the three 3 oz glasses arrived and I discovered that the flight was not as advertised. It was not 3 Champagnes but included Prosecco. Memo to F&P: Prosecco is not Champagne. Champagne comes only from Champagne AOC in France. In this respect, F&P is guilty of misleading advertising. I can't comment on the $32.00 flight but at least it is called the "Sparkling Flight" so, aside from the descriptor (which is also "Selection of 3 Champagnes"), I wouldn't have had any expectation that all 3 wines in the "Sparkling" flight were genuine Champagnes. Further, with the "Premium" flight being more than double the "Sparkling" flight, I think it's reasonable for someone like me to assume that the "Premium Champagne Flight" was indeed 3 selections of genuine Champagne AOC wines. Worst of all, the pinnacle wine, which was described by our server as being real Champagne, seem to be corked. To F&P's credit , the Assistant Manager came over immediately, smelt the wine and brought me a new glass. He didn't confirm nor deny that the first glass was corked. However, when I tasted the second glass, which was purportedly from a "fresh" bottle, it seemed quite sound and very much more alive than the first glass. If the first glass didn't came from a corked bottle, the first glass certainly came from a bottle that had been open for way too long. Aside from the false and misleading advertising, it's disappointing that F&P would serve stale wine especially at their food and drink price points. The other drinker at the table ordered a Bellini or some other girly drink (which is fine as she is female) while we pondered the food menu. My companion and I ordered the prix fixe which was a multiple option 3-course meal. I don't think F&P offers prix fixe normally. It was offered as part of the Dine Calgary promotion I referred to earlier. One of our group ordered the burger. The prix fixe was nothing short of amazing. There was first a Chef's teaser which was fabulous. The big hit however was the appetizer which I believe revolved around pork belly. I ordered the steak option as my entree and it was well executed considering it wasn't from a cut known for its tenderness. With the prix fixe, I ordered the suggested matching wines. All were well chosen and matched the food marvelously. My hat goes off for whomever put together the pairings. By now, my Bellini drinking friend had moved to a glass of Prosecco - the same stuff I got in my "Premium Champagne Flight" . Everyone ranted and raved about their meals especially our group member who ordered the burger. If I decide to go back, I'll look at that choice first and foremost. Our server was excellent and our food and drinks came without undue delay. I would expect no less from a restaurant in this class. The dining room is large with high ceiling. It has a surprisingly few numbers of tables. You would expect a quiet dining experience as a result however, as the dining room filled, the high roof amped-up the sound level noticeably. Not so much that it was unbearable or that you couldn't hear conversation around the table. Just don't expect a quiet, sedate dining experience at F&P. The washrooms were sharply designed, spotless and well stocked with supplies. What you would expect given F&P's restaurant class. A really cool feature of the dining room is the open kitchen. It's always fascinating to watch chefs and sous chefs at work. The oven is wood-fired so the restaurant has a very pleasant burning wood aroma. In the end, our bill came to about $400.00 which is way over-the-top for a dinner for 4 with 2 people not drinking. That's my second biggest gripe about F&P: it's not good value. Sure, the food is great and high quality but in my opinion, based on other Calgary restaurants of the same class, F&P is too costly for what you are getting. My primary gripe is being mislead regarding the "Premium Champagne Flight". Perhaps I should have asked what it comprised of before ordering but I'm not ordering where I have life-threatening food allergies. I believe diners should be able to rely on the descriptions printed in a resturant's menu, wine list and drink list without having to ask for a detailed rundown of what you get. Should have I complained? Maybe but that really isn't much of an option when you are with another couple celebrating. In fact, I recall mentioning to our server that I was expecting 3 genuine Champagne samples not 2 Champagnes and one bar-quality sparkler. Don't get me wrong, I am fond of Prosecco as much as the next guy but, not when my expectation (due to the description in the wine list) is for genuine Champagne and I believe I'm paying Champagne-level prices, Prosecco is no substitute for genuine Champagne. So, would I go back? Maybe if I was in the mood for good food and I had a heck of a lot of spare change jingling around in my pocket that I don't need. I would also ask a lot more questions as to what I'm going to get.More

We didn't want to cook so came here on Christmas day. It was surprisingly better than my expectations. It was a buffet style but the quality was better than most buffets in town. There were a good selection of seafood (raw oysters were the highlight...of the meal) prime rib, pasta, turkey, salads and table of desserts. The kids enjoyed playing in the lobby after dinner. The decor is modern. This is a nice new spot compared to the old pub style restaurant they had in the hotel before. We would consider booking this venue again for family dinner next year.More
