Service was good, patio very nice, but food only so-so. Will never again pay over $20 for some lettuce and a partial piece of chicken breast (caesar salad w/ chicken). Last bite of chicken was too hard to chew, seemed to get tougher as it cooled down. Menu choices minimal, maybe because of covid. Overall disappointed, may try one more time.

Variety on menu was small. Had nauchos with chicken. Over-cooked and chicken was dry.
Serving staff was great. Walked by the kitchen and NONE of the kitchen staff were wearing masks.

We clearly missed the mark and your comments have been passed on to the back of house. Under the provincial guidelines masks are not mandatory for back of house (kitchen). However we do mandate and enforce social distancing for our back of house team to ensure everyones safety. All front of house staff (servers, bartenders, host and floor manager) all wear masks regardless if 2 meters is possible. The health and safety of our associates and our customers remain top priority.

This is the second time I’ve attempted to make a reservation at 1918 Tap and Table on OpenTable. The reservations were for 8:30 pm and 8:00 pm. Both times, my guest and I entered the location, only to be told that they would not seat us, as they were closed. Each time, I informed the staff that I had a reservation on OpenTable. I was told again that the location was closed.

On July 7th 2020, the last time I will ever go to 1918 Tap and Table, I pressed the staff member and said that when I make a reservation, it is accepted and I travel all the way to the restaurant, I expect that I will be served. She informed me that it is the manager’s policy to accept all reservations, instead of changing the reservation options on OpenTable to actually reflect the location’s hours of operations. I asked for the manager’s information but she just apologized.

If it is actually the manager’s policy to accept reservations when the restaurant is closed, they should look into finding better management. In this economic climate, it isn’t advisable to lose potential customers before they’re able to order a drink.

It was okay!! Everyone was super friendly and we loved that the patio was dog friendly 🤗 we’re always on the lookout for excellent food though and we were both not super impressed with it.. The food was alright, but not amazing.

Thanks for providing a safe environment for Birthday dinner on July 2. I knew we picked the right place when I saw the care that staff were taking with customers and meals.

Thanks for making this first Covid 19 outing a success.

This is our go to restaurant lately. Great service, great food and they seem to go above and beyond with the Covid protocols. Whether we are outside on the patio or inside the restaurant the experience is always good. Highly recommend.

I have read mixed reviews about this place, but we’ve been here many times and have never been disappointed. The service was great and we enjoyed the atmosphere. The food is very good but there could be some small details improved. But all in all we liked it. And love that they have a pet friendly patio!

We had a very enjoyable Valentines Day dining experience. We tried the special menu created for the occasion and enjoyed it thoroughly. We had wonderful service from beginning to end. We passed along a recommendation to a person we were chatting with the next day and she was enthusiastic about trying it. Looking forward to our next visit.

This is such a great restaurant for a group of friends to gather. The location is convenient to the Jubillee Auditorium or event to any downtown event if you're driving. Everyone in the party was very impressed with their food. My steak - medium rare - was cooked to perfection and was delicious. This was our second visit and both times were great.

The food was good, but the fact that we sat for just under 30 min without even being asked our drink order, is enough to not return. And we had reservations, we didn't walk in unnoticed.

Somehow they emailed to say we had been seated 3 hours before we arrived. Once there they seemed understaffed as everything took a long time. They ran out of fish so one of my party had to change their order. Food was ok but underseasoned.To be fair this was a Sunday night so perhaps that explains it.

The staff was friendly and the service was good. The restaurant is wheelchair accessible which was why we chose to try it out. However I would not recommend the restaurant as the three dinner entrees we ordered were not enjoyable. They were served lukewarm and not flavourful.

Nice atmosphere, menu has changed. Was last there about 8 months ago, the menu went from a finer dining to a bar food menu. Food was good, service was very slow, staff seemed confused and in need of training.

Unfortunately we had a poor experience the other day at Tap & Table. Our group had been looking forward to trying out this restaurant as it is fairly close to work. We booked a table for 8 for our Christmas Luncheon. We arrived on time and put in our order within about 10 min. There were about 5 other tables seated in the restaurant. We did not get our food until almost an hour later. Various elements were missing from each dish (i.e., no pico de gallo on the shrimp tacos, full rinds of lime embedded in the tacos, steak frites ordered medium rare arrived well done, etc). My own dish was pan seared salmon and it arrived raw in the middle. I sent it back and it took another 25 min to be plated again. At that point I was forced to pack it up and take it to go. Our server was very apologetic and tried her best to keep things moving but to no avail. She mentioned speaking with her manager about the issue and we ended up getting 15 % off the bill and my meal was taken off the bill completely but we did not hear anything from the manager themselves. No apologies, no excuses, no encouragement to return and give this place another try. This is very unfortunate as most folks in my group have written the place off despite the fantastic ambiance, reasonably priced menu and proximity to work. Customer service is simply not what it used to be. Will likely have to give this place a pass in the future.

Overall experience was ok. Some food at our table
Was decent, some was very bland and disappointing. Service was very slow for a restaurant with lots of open tables and a ton of staff around. Ended up going to the bar for drinks as server didn’t check on drinks after the first round. Overall mediocre experience.

We met friends and the menu was changed, the service was so bad that I went to the bar finally to get our drinks and there so only 1 of 2 waiting there. We had waited for 22 minutes so instead of eating we left and went to Jameson.

We have been supporting 1918 Tap and Table for several months, and one of the main reasons we come to the restaurant is the kettle chips. Most of the visits, we would notice many people ordering them, and now they have taken them off the menu? That is very disappointing. With the new menu we have also noticed they have upped their prices. Another disappointment, as price wise, they have put themselves into a category like most other restaurants in Calgary. There is really not anything that would make this restaurant outstanding anymore. We may still support them, but it won't always be our first choice anymore.

This is our third visit - always lunch. First two visits were exceptional, however this time my husbands’s order of beef was overdone and my friend’s burger was blackened and her bun soggy, I had vegetable curry which was wonderful and other friend had risotto and she said it too was good. I usually buy my husband gift cards as he loves the ambience there and the only noise is the patrons. Far cry from the previous legion for sure.
