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

Sunday brunch for a family of seven ended up a major disappointment. This was the most sparse and poorly done brunch we could recall. Scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon and hash browns? Is that not a typical corporate hotel breakfast? Yes there were eggs benedict but they were boring.... small eggs, boring sauce, everyday ham, but nothing special..... no spinach, mushrooms,...

Went for Sunday Brunch at noon. Food table was pretty picked over. No Juice. Poor Service. No Dim Sum and when asked about it was told they just opened after the close for renos and weren't quite organized. Why open if you are not ready?

Our group went for a birthday Brunch on Sunday midmorning. In addition to having a great buffet selection of breakfast fare, the servers came round with an assortment of tasty tidbits including shrimp skewers, Yorkshire pudding etc.. etc.. The food was fantastic, the service was outstanding. It is pricey compared to a regular buffet but well worth what you get.... More

We had dinner her last night as part of a birthday celebration. We were a party of 8 people but the restaurant looked more empty than full. The service was great and the food excellent. They do have a big wine list with some nice discounts on the wine on the first page. Everybody at the table liked the food... More

We came here as a large group and were not disappointed in any way. The service was excellent throughout, the surroundings beautiful and the food and wine faultless. I had the scallops to start, duck for main and the most incredible fire and ice dessert. Loved the theatre of it...and the taste!!! Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
