It was date night for my mom, daughter & I. We each ordered & shared so we could try a few things. We loved everything including the Italian red wine. My daughter is a vegetarian & there wasn't a lot of options so she had the soup & a salad which she enjoyed. The best part of our dining experience... More

Nice ambience, delicious food and wines. We were greeted as soon as we walked through the front door. All staff were very friendly. Bartender, Al, is the best! We sat at the bar, ordered appetizers only. The duck wings were cooked to perfection, and the portion was big. My friend had the wild mushroom tart, and said it was delicious.... More

My wife and I had dinner at the Bears Den the other night to celebrate her birthday. We were seated at a table by the fireplace which added to the ambiance. The restaurant is decorated in a Western Canadian style leveraging their name. We started with a couple of mushroom based appetizers, a mushroom tart and a mushroom bisque. Both... More

We have been coming to the Bears Dean over the years for our company’s Christmas dinner. Our employees work very hard through the year and we want them and their partners to be treated like royalty for this special occasion. The Bears Dean has never let us down and last evening was not the exception. It was just simply amazing.... More

My husband and I went as part of a group and had reserved the private room. Throughout the entire evening the service was first rate and a special thanks to J.P. As some other reviewers have pointed out, under new management, the core menu has "shortened" somewhat but when combined with the off menu "specials", no one in our party... More

Limited selection, food over-cooked, Totally a different experience than with the previous owner. Maybe the next owner will do better

Went to Bears Den after their renovations. Have to say atmosphere and services are still fantastic and first rate. Our service was very good and very attentive. No complaints there. First off the new menu is a far cry from what it was before. Options are very limited. On the plus side most of what we ordered was good. Wife... More

The Bears Den is located in a unique building with high ceilings and impressive wall art showing the big game of Canada. As noted by other reviewers, the menu has narrowed and there is no game on the menu. Our waiter told us that this was because the chef and general manger had changed and the menu had changed as...

This restaurant is no longer Calgary's little gem. Changes to the menu leave customers with none of their acclaimed wild meats and over priced substandard meat cuts. I used to rave about the Bears Den, the service, the food, the chef but after a recent diner celebration I'm sad to announce, although the décor is still charming and the waiting... More

My husband and I used to be regulars at the Bears Den Restaurant. The decor is lovely and there's a homely feel to the place, but recently the chef changed and the food is no longer good. I've always been a huge fan of the steaks, however the menu has reduced (a lot) and there's currently only one steak left... More
