Was invited to a business dinner and had never heard of the place. Located in the old Grand Theatre in downtown Calgary. They offer a blind 3 or 5 course tasting menu however we opted for the regular menu. That said we asked for a family style centre table serving and they delivered
For 5 of us they brought 2 orders of sirloin and 2 of swordfish along with one other. With several sides with each there was plenty and you could sample a little of each. Totally satisfied. Great dinner. Service was very good as well

We wanted to love Workshop. It had been on my list for many months and the reviews were excellent. We went mid week for a birthday celebration.

The downside of our evening was the service. Our server was lackluster and flat and rushed. He returned to our table five times to finally get to our food order and seemed disappointed that we didn’t order from the improv menu. We ordered drinks and they came at different times instead of together. When filling water glasses or removing plates he reached across the table in front of a guest’s face. Water glasses were refilled for some but not all.

Notice that I didn’t review the food? People remember how you make them feel and we did not feel it.

Loved everything about our visit.

Four of our group had the 5 course tasting menu and every course was beautifully presented, unique tasting and perfectly cooked. We especially enjoyed the duck breast and lamb courses. The wine pairings were well done. The other 2 of our group had the roast chicken and added a starter of roasted cauliflower and a side of gnocchi. Everyone left full (and impressed) with both the quality of food and the service. Our server Bobby was first-class.

Our only negative comment is the stools at our table were not very comfortable. Better chair pads for us senior citizens would be appreciated!

This is not a restaurant for anyone looking for a cheap night out. We all felt the price reflects the overall experience, and highly recommend this restaurant. We will be back!

I first discovered this gem after we held our company Client Christmas lunch there.
I've been back a few times personally and it's never let me down.
The wine pairings are always good and the food is always delicious.
It's definitely understated a little off the main track, but the location is unique and the food speaks for itself.
