Escoba Bistro and Wine Bar
Mediterranean influenced cuisine paired with great wine and exceptional service. Located in the Calgary downtown core we are well accustomed to the hustle and bustle of the corporate lunch crowd and delight in the opportunity to serve our clientele both efficiently and consistently with our good old fashioned familiar Escoba ways. Our evenings are a bit more quiet and perfect for catching up with an old friend, getting a bite to eat before or after a movie, or even just an impromptu drink and bite with family... did we mention we also host private events for a variety of sizes? We hope to serve you soon!

Food was amazing and so delicious.
The staff's attention to us having the best Escoba experience is very pleasing.
Our gratitude to them for giving us such a terrific night out.
A lot of menu items were sold out

If there is an incorrect copy of our menu listed online we'd love to know so we can prevent any further disappointment. Thank you for your feedback and we'll make sure to be better prepared on your next visit!
Escoba is one of the greatest places to eat downtown. For value and for the quality of food. My clients love it there and try to get there whenever I can.
Surf and turf special was fantastic, cook on the steak was perfect and scallops were cooked great as well,will definitely return soon.
Was so glad to see Escoba open again after the covid shut downs. Excellent as always.
Very nice dining experience.
Thank you for the extra time and attention given to our meals and service.
Unbelievable food! Our server was wonderful, such a great evening. Hard to choose my favorite dish, but I had the tuna, its delicious! The squid starter was also next level! Will be back!
Amazing spot for business lunches -ambiance and noise level is perfect
Thank you for the review Amanda! We appreciate your support!
Love this place! Food is consistent and delishious. Appetizer platter and salmon is the way to go!
Thank you for your review! We look forward to seeing you when you're back in Calgary :)
The flavour of the food was well balanced and the presentation was very good. Our server was very helpful and appropriately attentive. She was well informed about the wines offered and gave helpful suggestions.
Wonderful yyc dining experience. Great vegetarian option. Thanks guyd
Thank you for the review Denise! So glad to hear you enjoyed yourself, we can't wait to have you back in!
Foods are great. Server was nice.
Just one thing is floor was super slippery.
So be careful. Another than that everything was great. I’ll go back there!
Such a great place to enjoy a meal and drinks. The attention to detail in the meal had us at hello. Ideal for intimate dinners. The staff were amazing, paid attention to all the detail. Will definitely dine here again :).
Birthday celebration with our daughter. Very enjoyable and we will be back!
Thank you for the review Lana! Can't wait to have you back!
First visit here for dinner before a show. My wife and I shared appetizer plates and dessert. Service was attentive, and friendly. Drinks were offered right away. Good menu selection. Four of the appetizers were exellent. Crab and Shrimp cakes, Spring rolls (Mediterranean flare), Pulled Pork dumplings, and the winner of the night was the Squid! Desserts of Creme Brûlée and Tiramisu were excellent. Lots of time to enjoy it all as we didn't feel rushed.
One thing we both commented on was the lack of noise. Even with lots of people talking, the restaurant had obviously taken the time to do acoustic treatment in the space as evidenced by the ceiling panels and wall treatments. The ease of quiet conversation in what should have been a noisy space was a welcoming change from a lot of the noisy places we have eaten lately.
Great food, excellent service, and low noise. Will be on the repeat list for sure.
Nice ambience. Excellent food. Great service. Not too loud for business lunch.
Thank you the review, come back soon!
The atmosphere is very nice and the service was very good. The wine was fantastic! The only thing I wouldn't recommend is the lobster bisque - it was actually tomato bisque to much tomato not enough lobster taste.
Always a solid performance on the menu and food. Enjoy coming back here either before a show or for a night out.
Thank you for the review!
We visited on Valentines Day so it was understandably very busy. Despite being so busy, there were no issues with service. We opted for the Valentines Menu which was a 4 course sharing menu. All 4 courses were delicious and beautifully presented. The portions could perhaps have been a little bigger. I was satisfied however my husband would have liked a little more of each dish. It was possible to order from the regular menu and the dishes we saw go by also looked great. Looking forward to returning in the future.
Every part of the meal was amazing!
Thank you for the review Andrew! We hope to see you in soon :)
Quaint cozy spot with great food. Was a bit crowded with tables close to on another, but the service and food made up for it.
The St-V set menu sounded fancy. However, the comfort food was ordinary... not elevated and not sophisticated. The dinner was definitely overpriced in terms of quality and lack of creativity. The great service and relax atmosphere compensated to a certain extent.
Hello, thank you for your feedback regarding your Valentine’s Day dinner experience. We regret to hear that you didn’t thoroughly enjoy the featured Chef’s menu and found it overpriced. We've passed along your feedback to our Chef to review. We are happy to hear that the service and atmosphere helped remedy your experience, and we hope there will be an opportunity to see you again soon!
Great vibes, over booked for Valentine’s Day which made it feel a little rushed but would def go back on a less busy day.
Thank you for the review! Can't wait to have you back :)
Amazing food. Amazing location. The 6oz sirloin steak was the best we’ve had. Thank you!
Thank for taking the time to review Kayla! We're glad to hear you enjoyed yourself. come back soon!
The food was so delicious and the service was exceptional. I have Celiac Disease and I was very confident with their knowledge. I highly recommend the salmon and my husband was very impressed with the chicken and scallops.
Thank you for the review Mack! We are so glad you enjoyed everything, come back soon :)
Another exceptional dinner at Escoba, the most reliable place in Calgary for great service, food and conversation.
Thank you for taking the time to review! Don't be stranger, come back soon!

Excellent as always. Food was fast and tasty, great for a business lunch.
Thank you for the review Sparky! Glad you enjoyed your visit with us, come back soon!
It's a bit pricy but the food is good. The servers are cheery. I passed by the place often but never realized inside the restaurant is so nice, the light is not too bright and not too dark. Next time, I will visit again if there are company coming to town.
Thank you for the review Angela! We look forward to having you back in!
One of the best places to go for dinner. Ambiance is great and food is delicious. Highly recommend

A little pricey for lunch but the food, service, wine and ambiance are top-notch. Would probably prefer this destination for dinner instead.
Food is always consistent and delicious. Service always impeccable.
Thank you for the review Lori! We hope to see you soon!
They always continue to exceed my expectations. Amazing food at reasonable prices.
Thank you for taking the time to review Dinger!
Had dinner here with 2 couples and everyone really enjoyed it. Three of us had steaks, one had chicken. All loved their meals. The service was top notch, very pleasant staff and very knowledgeable on food and wine options. The setting was also excellent with the noise level just right to allow us to have a nice conversation. We will definitely return.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience Blair! We put all we have into creating a wonderful dining experience for all our guests and we're glad to hear you enjoyed yourself. We look forward to having you back in!
Great meal with excellent wine recommendations. Definitely coming back
