Enjoyed a recent lunch on the patio! The service was fantastic. The waiter made sure that both myself and my guest were seated in a location that allowed us to enjoy the patio, without overheating in the noon sun. No complaints regarding the menus choices. The food was fresh, very nicely seasoned and, as always delicious.

We always stay in the Hyatt when we are downtown. Thompsons bar is where we end up for an afternoon cocktail or a snack and after dinner drink. The staff recognize us from each visit and stop to chat which I love. They are very attentive and friendly. If they are busy, they have given us complimentary drinks for keeping... More

Great choices, if you can't find something you'd like, then you don't like food. My only comment is that the table they sat our table of 20 at was very cramped near the bar and people kept bumping our chairs trying to get by. They should have sat us together at one end of the restaurant and not right in... More

Great glass of wine and amazing nachos. So many toppings. Also ate brunch here - very expensive, but well-stocked.

I had lunch here last week and the servers were very kind and welcoming. Delicious steak sandwich with roasted apple and parsnip soup. Yum oh! The only downside is that it's a bit pricey for what you're getting

The service was OK, we neglected to ask for separate bills at the very beginning. What a mistake that was ! Our server couldn't separate the bills properly and ended up putting our drinks on a separate tab. I think this is simply because he couldn't remember who ordered what and what meal it was suppose to go with. There... More

Having not dined at Thomsons in just over a year, I had high hopes for our dinner this evening. Previous experiences were decent and with the current state of the Calgary economy, I had expected restaurants of this calibre to have stepped up their game to provide the best possible service. Sadly, not only was I disappointed, but I was... More
