Inspired by good old fashioned home cooking, The Kitchen Table is a neighborhood joint in the heart of Seton. We will feature classic cocktails, Calgary craft beer, and a wine list with a handful of Canadian gems. It’s a fun, boisterous room reminiscent of the kitchen you grew up in!

The food and service were excellent It was our first time dining here and we will be back. There are a lot of great seating options for tables in both the diner and the lounge. The restaurant is close to the Cineplex and would be a great casual dining/drinks location before or after the movies.

We went for Christmas dinner and the food was very good. The evening started off poorly as the manager kept us waiting for 15 minutes for a table even though we had a reservation. Service was extremely slow and inattentive. It took 2 hours for us to complete our meal with 5 courses from a limited menu spaced between 15 to 30 minutes apart. Speaking to the manager did not help.

We were in for Christmas Day, where there was a special 5 course menu. Server was nice, but clearly overworked/understaffed, and so service was slow. Until we complained, it took forever to get our food. We waited for our third course for almost an hour, and it was just a salad. This confused us; we didn’t need to wait for anything to cook, so why the delay? When we spoke up, the service finally sped up after that. I had the turkey while everyone also had steak. Everyone loved their entree; but my turkey dish left much to be desired unfortunately. Same for dessert. The appetizer and soup was delicious. My salad was supposed to come with candied walnuts, but there were none.. overall not the best dining experience. I do understand it was very busy, and it can be difficult to staff well on Christmas Day, so I would give them another opportunity.

I was very disappointed. I asked my husband to go for Christmas dinner as they were providing a 5 course meal. The menu didn't really match what we were served or was misrepresented. The Smoked Salmon choice was one sushi roll not smoked but raw with a very small dab of cream cheese on one end. The butternut soup tasted good but was tepid and maybe 1/2 of a cup. The main course of (I think) Ravioli was good. My husband was charged for every coffee he had but nobody mentioned this might happen. I would never recommend this to anyone.

Celebrated a good friend’s birthday last night in this favourite neighbourhood gem and of course, I wasn’t disappointed.

Four of us had the prime rib and the servings were huge and the prime rib were done to perfection.

The young lady that served was was very friendly and accommodating and they even offered a complimentary birthday dessert for my friend.

Another great evening spent in this awesome restaurant!

The place was not extremely busy, but we thought our server was very personable and attentive to our needs. The food itself was not all that impressive, presumably because it was a weeknight and they don’t have a large kitchen crew working these hours. Still it’s a pleasant place to go when you don’t feel like straying too far from your hotel room.

It was quite expensive for the service we received. We had to ask to have our coffee refilled, and the place wasn’t full - so not sure why service was so slow. Food was ok - but not great. And they ran out of the only dessert I cared for. I expected a lot more for the price I was paying.

We went for Easter brunch. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great. The eggs benny were good, salads were good. The hash browns were soggy, and the desserts were not good at all.
I think for an Easter Brunch, I would have expected a little more. I doubt we will return.

Felt rushed. Hard to enjoy meal and conversation. Prime Rib was too fatty (1/3), Turkey was 2/3 dark. Caesar salad too salty.

We went there for Christmas dinner. We had our two year old with us. It was half price for her meal which still would’ve been about 23 dollars so we opted to share with her. We asked if we could just pay for some noodles but that was not an option. Even some bread would’ve been helpful. It was not the end of the world but for a very young child a cheaper option would be helpful. Just a heads up, bring some toddler foods. The food we ordered was edible but not overly tasty especially for the price. For example the turkey was very dry as was the stuffing. Everything was edible but a bit underwhelming for the 45 dollar price tag.

We went there on Christmas Eve and had the four-course meal on the 'Christmas Eve Special' menu. The special was the only thing that could be ordered, but had a choice of two soups, two salads, three entrees, and two deserts. It had excellent choices and between the six of us we wound up having one of at least all the selections. Everyone thought they were very good. In particular, the entree sizes were much larger than expected and were very filling.

The service was excellent, but then there was no one else there. The drinks were very expensive...$17 for an 8oz glass of wine!! The food was mediocre to say the least. very disappointing. If they are going to compete with restaurants in the neighbourhood, they really need to revise their menu and get an new chef.

Service was outstanding, the burger was one of the best burgers I have had but the smoked salmon board consisted of 3 pieces of toast, 3 pieces of smoked salmon and some condiments. Salmon was good but really pricey for such a small portion.

The ambiance was very casual but nice.

The service however was very good. Our server Carmelito was top notch!

This restaurant is located in the lobby of the courtyard by the SE hospital, and doesn’t have any signage outside making it hard to find.
It is targeted mostly at guest of the hotel, as it also includes a bar all in one large open area with the hotel checkin.

The menu has changed from what the OpenTable includes and many of the dishes have now increase by $5 or more making this an expensive restaurant in an area with other choices.

The meal was very good with only a couple of minor issues. The service was fantastic; pleasant and attentive. We tried 2 of the appetizer plates...yorkies and the crab dip. The yorkies were great with thinly sliced prime rib in mini yorkshires with a very mild horseradish sauce and arugala. The crab dip was with fresh baked pita chips and although the flavor was good it was somewhat dry (not creamy as expected). My wife had French Onion Soup and I had a caesar salad both which were delicious. The main courses were striploin steak and pork adobo which were also very tasty. Although the meal was very good, all of these first 3 courses seemed to all be somewhat heavy on salt.
This was accompanied with a nice bottle of Pinot Grigo which complemented the food well.
We finished with desserts and coffee and both agreed it was a very good dining experience overall.

Our first time at The Kitchen Table, and definitely not our last! The atmosphere, the food and especially the people, made for a fantastic first visit! Ps - the french onion soup and prime rib (Saturday night special) were some of the best we’ve had. Both are must try’s.

It was our first visit to The Kitchen Table and we were very pleased with the food that was served. But what was most heart warming was the service. Our server took great care of us without making us feel overwhelmed. The ambience is great but I think the restaurant needs to advertise its location and put up a sign to indicate where it is located as it is inside the Courtyard Marriott and there’s no indication of that and so it took us a while to figure out the location.

The restaurant was very quiet for a saturday night - only two other tables were being served so our food came out very quickly. The server was very attentive and engaging, and she did not rush us with the bill. The food was reasonably priced, and we had a lovely dinner. There is parking on street to avoid paying fees in the hotel parking lot.
