Best Calgary restaurants?

Yeah, the Highwood is great. Prices are super cheap but service is somewhat interesting as the students are learning. What I;m saying is, don't book a meeting after your dinner because you'll be late but the food is great. It's always great to see people learning the service industry the right way! Most of these kids belong in 5 star places...

Best Calgary restaurants?

We've had excellent meals at Avec - killer wine list and Darnell is an incredible chef. Another vote for vin room and you should also check out Yellow Door Bistro. If you have time - we love the Post Hotel in Lake Louise - silly expensive but outstanding service and a crazy huge wine list.

Involtini in Calgary - anyone tried it yet?

We were there a couple of years ago and enjoyed a nice meal, solid and good but not outstanding. Calamari was excellent but I forget the rest of the meal....

I usually order from espressotec - based in Vancouver. They have some great descaling products and will ship to your door.

Are there any restaurants in Calgary serving cassoulet? Having an intense craving for the magical dish.

Great restaurants near Copley Square?

Anybody tried Island Creek oyster bar? We're headed to Boston and coincidentally staying at Copley Square as well.

Sushi Kitchen info? (Quarry Park Calgary)

Just tried Sushi Kitchan in Quarry Park today and had a horrific experience. Crappy timing, tempura sent back because it was undercooked and slimy, gyoza's that tasted weird, and rolls the size of a small car that completely fell apart.

We won't go back - truly a bad bad dining experience. 45 minutes for slimy tempura, kitchen chaos, disintegrating rolls, poor service and no sense of wanting the diner to enjoy it. I hope this place makes it, but if this is happening to others diners (and by the looks of others - it is), this place will be lucky to last 6 months. They really should close down for a few days, get their act together, do a soft opening for friends and family, get their kitchen working and try again. Severely disappointed and ripped off and will be warning others.
