Have ate here twice before and had incredible experiences (both service and food). Today my husband and I tried take out. I was nervous that I would be missing out on the bread we get when sitting in the restaurant. I did a happy dance when I found it was included. It is so yummy. Today was our first time trying something that wasn’t a pasta (if you haven’t tried the pasta, go for it because it is so good). I think I might have found my new favourite dish. The veggies were seasoned perfectly, the potatoes were heaven, and my beef tenderloin was done to absolute perfection. My husband had the pork tenderloin and also was raving about his dish. Sizing was perfect and I cannot stop raving about the taste. Can’t wait to visit in person for the amazing service, but these take-out dishes are perfection in the meantime.

We enjoyed an excellent meal in a pleasant setting. Our food, which was clearly of high quality, was well prepared and tasty, the service was friendly and prompt, and the ambience was just right. I enjoyed the community vibe and the fact that a meal at Allegra was very good value for money. Thank you so much!

We had read good things about Allegra and were not disappointed! We were in Cranbrook for a week long golf vacay and always like to try something new. We contacted the restaurant the day before, and were accommodated with a response and an option for the following day (sent in eform via their website Tuesday, dined Thursday). When we arrived we were promptly seated and ran through the specials. My husband and I both had the Sangria cocktail…..delicious! I had the duck, he had the lamb, both were devine! For dessert he had the Toblerone chocolate mousse, and I the meringue with ice cream and berries. Just superb! We will be back! Highly recommended!!!!!! Service was impeccable and a joy to watch.

We finally got a reservation on a Saturday night and we’re very happy to have the best table private in front of the window. Service was excellent all the courses were served at the perfect time, we spent almost 3 hrs enjoying the evening. We started with the flamed saganaki it was impressive but the cheese could have been softer and warmer on the cracker. I had the pacific crab and lobster ravioli. The presentation was nice but I would have liked to have tasted the crab and lobster more it was just a pink tasteless mince in the ravioli not worth the price. My husband had the chicken piccata he said it tasted good but the chicken was like a patty not real chicken breast. We had the toblerone chocolate mousse it was good but just blobs on a plate it could have been presented better with larger chunks of toblerone. Overall I regret that it didn’t live up to its legendary reputation and I won’t be rushing back.

Thank you for your review, we are happy that you enjoyed our service as well as the flavors of your meal. I would like to take the opportunity to address your concern regarding the size and value of the lamb rack. Although it says "lamb rack" on the menu, it does not say "whole lamb rack". In the same way as one can't expect a whole pork tenderloin when it says "pork tenderloin', the same applies to the lamb; it only describes the 'cut' where the meat is taken from. We do charge $43.00 for our lamb rack and we are serving a third of a rack, consisting of 3 pieces with 2 to 3 bones depending on the rib end of the rack . Unfortunately we face the same inflation to food and operating costs like everybody else, and this ultimately dictates our prices. I invite you to visit any grocery store and buy a lamb rack; it will set you back roughly $35 for the meat alone. I am sure you would agree that no restaurant that wants to remain in business can serve an entire lamb rack with sides and sauce for $43 . For a more meat-forward dish may I suggest our 10oz striploin or the pork tenderloin should you wish to give us another try. Sincerely, Thomas

Outstanding dining. Dishes are  innovative,  exceptionally well prepared, very flavorful. Excellent price for the selection of generous, top quality food. Wine list is a bit daft for pricing. You can see why it is number one--it deserves to be the top spot. Great experience

Chester and I enjoyed a delicious dinner at this wonderful restaurant on Wednesday, August 11. Everything was excellent. Fine. wine, fine food and excellent service. Thomas, the owner and chef, makes every customer feel welcome and he goes out of his way to meet everyone's requests. For sure this is the best restaurant in Cranbrook. Just for your information, Chester is having a problem swallowing his food right now and Thomas made a special meal just for him and gave us a private booth at the front of the restaurant.

Make a reservation and check their hours! Great spacing, menu is on the wall or your phone, servers distance when possible. Was a special occasion so we chose to go out for dinner, which we have not done yet. Food is always amazing. Order bread to take home as you can't get enough of it and have dinner! Can't recommend highly enough.

Our entire meal was top notch! Highly recommend the chilli, ginger and garlic fried prawns, pan fried arctic char fillet, and roasted butternut squash ravioli. All were cooked to perfection. Top it off with their huckleberry cheesecake and enjoy! Due to covid restrictions, we placed our order using their online take-out system. We were sent a text ten minutes before it was ready, all very timely and professional. Thanks Allegra, we will be back.

Our favourite in Cranbrook when we come through every 6 months and it didn’t disappoint! The Saganaki with the olive paste was delicious as a starter. The pork tenderloin cutlets and seafood spaghetti were Done to perfection and the pumpkin cheesecake finished the night off with a flair. Always great to support a restaurant run by family. It really makes a difference! Thanks!!

We have tried to get into Allegra many times over the last number of years - today was our lucky day! The restaurant is tiny, but well laid out and clearly in compliance with the pandemic protocols. Service was quick, friendly and professional, even though we were early for our reservation. The table was laid and set for a well served dinner. The menu is concise and adheres to the focus of the restaurant. Our entrees were very well prepared and beautifully served. The sauces surrounding the meals were fragrant and delicious. Vegetables were properly cooked and complimented the meat. The wine list was limited but had sufficient and appropriate local (BC) products to compliment the meal. All in all, this was a wonderful experience and we would recommend it to any and all. What a wonderful gem for a small city to be very proud of.

We had such excellent food and the menu was so diverse, we decided we just had to go back the next night. We weren't disappointed! The staff and chef were amazing. Delightful sauces and flavours. Perfect vegetables. Meat was delicious (beef, duck, pork, lamb). Outstanding pandemic protocols. Really quite an amazing place. It is so important to support these local small businesses in these times. Best wishes!

We have visited Allegra many times over the years. Always has the service been friendly, the food is amazing and ambience fantastic. We loved every dish and the desserts. It’s c how Thomas the chef can produce such flavourful and creative dishes with such beautiful presentation. He even can deliciously accommodate dietary needs. Everything is made in house. Even the Meringue and Cheesecakes. Hard to decide what desserts, so we got them all. Highly recommend

This was our second visit to Alllegra and the food is outstanding! My husband had the shrimp, candied salmon fettuccine and I had the chicken breast. Each dish was filled with flavor and each bite a delight. We will visit this place each time we come to Cranbrook. If you can't figure out what to eat ask the staff! They are knowledgeable about the menu. Its not a wonder this place is #1.

So a boisterous group of 8 WMP golfers descend on this restaurant in an unremarkable location and have an, no better descriptor, exquisite dining experience. The menu is expansive and excels from the lamb, morel mushroom salad, el dente seafood spaghetti to the most divine airy mousse you can imagine. This group of old farts has been mostly everywhere and, pardon the cliche, this is truly a hidden gem!!
