We discovered this restaurant on trip advisor. Having travelled from Regina to Calgary we wanted something close to our hotel. 400 meters from Fairmont. Perfect.

We tried the 5 courses with wine paring. Good decision. They will tell you what will be served if you want, but they suggest to take each service as a surprise, which is what we did.

Everything served was very good, in a creative way, small portions... Wine pairing was done with their sommelier, and it was very well thought of. Wine worked perfectly with each service we had, and some of them were not so obvious! Good job!

Decor is simple, factory style. Nice and cozy.

Great night, great diner, great service | Great experience. BRAVO!

Will certainly go again one day

The write up sounded intriguing and it lived up to that. An interesting concept with an interesting menu and two tasting menus. I tried the 3 course one and went along with the surprise content. I was not disappointed; great food, well presented and very tasty - loved it. Good wine pairings to go with each dish as well if you like.

The service Bobby gave us was fantastic, cater to my kids asks. We chose a few appetizers, kids took the chicken and Gnocchi with amazing mushroom and truffle oil (on the side), I ordered the rack of lamb (the only dish which was not perfect). The drinks, service and desert - banana bread pudding - was amazing.

Definitely a must for decoration, ambience, service and food - even though on the expensive side.

Had not heard about this restaurant until my niece booked it for a family celebration last weekend. We were a party of 12 and opted for the 5 course improv meal - meaning we sit down and they just bring on the food. It was fantastic, and our waiter was very attentive and good with explaining all the courses to us. There is also a menu that you can order from which looks delicious as well. We actually had one of our guests who was detained and missed the majority of the meal, elected to take something off the menu when he arrived. He had the pork belly and raved about it. Interesting atmosphere - loved the "chandeliers". Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a very nice evening out and if you are at all adventurous, go for the improv menu. We even took the Ctrain there to avoid having to worry about downtown parking
