Things were good. Service needs a little work. She wasn’t very attentive.

I booked using opentable, there was no issues checking in. The staff was very friendly and provided exceptional service. Our waitress was very friendly and made our stay enjoyable. Food was delicious and the ambiance was cozy and intimate.

Always a great experience. The managers are very attentive and go the extra mile to make you feel that your patronage is appreciated. The servers have always been top notch. Food is excellent and they know how to do a proper Chicago steak!

The filet was absolutely to die for. Very good. happy with the overall service. We had a very nice night. Would have given 5 stars but we ordered the potato salad and several of the potatoes were very under cooked. We couldn't keep eating it (ate about half). Let the server know and they did nothing (didn't take it off the bill or bring a new one). Not the end of the world by any means but I'd recommend asking what they plan to do about it if you send something back. I've noticed that this is a trend in Calgary and it' not a good one. Customers would do best to keep their standards up.

The beet salad + steak is a great lunch option. The carrot was a great way to end the meal. Very good ambiance and service.

Salmon was cooked perfectly and showed up exactly at the same time as the steak, also cooked perfectly. Both tasted absolutely delicious. Dessert was the best. Cheese cake in philo paste or something like that. Perfect blend of crunchy and smooth. Wow. Server was super nice too. Great night. Top best 5 meal of the year for sure for us. Probably one of the best dessert we ever had.

Food is always good. Sometimes too much but the Cobb Salad was the perfect amount for a lunch. We sat outside on one of the last nice fall days (probably). Could have sat under heaters but opted for a table closer to the sidewalk. Greeted and given a choice of where to sit, attentive server and other staff.

Hanger steak was of great value, slightly too salty but cooked to perfection. Very tender and flavourful.

Pizza was good, but not outstanding as there are a lot of great pizza places in Calgary.

Booking thru OpenTable was very easy. We were running late because we were looking for parking as we not familiar with Calgary streets and some of them are 1-way only, was trying to call the restaurant but not answering so I was worried that they will cancel our reservation. Luckily, the receptionist was nice and accomodating. I guess because it was not so busy at that time, still lots of table available but if it's full maybe we won't be able to dine if we were half an hour late. The service was great, they greeted us when we arrived, welcoming and pleasant greeting, our server was outstanding and friendly. The food was good, tasty and presented well. They welcomed by pet, gave him a bowl of water. They're pet-friendly resto, it would be nice if they also give a small treat for the pet ;). I was just expecting the vibe usually on Stephen Walk Avenue was lively, but not at this time of pandemic, it was so different. But overall, our dining experience was great!

Party of three that met to celebrate a colleague's passing of an exam. Sat on the patio. Food was amazing, drinks were well priced and overall have nothing negative to say. I have eaten at The Guild a few times (both inside/outside) and each time has been perfect.

We were greeted at the entrance desk promptly and seated on the patio. The server quickly came over and we were served menus and water promptly. We split a beet salad, which was excellent. The tenderloin steaks were done to our liking. We ordered 3 sides; which we split. All were excellent, but a bit too much food. We will return.

My wife and I visited for a steak dinner on our honeymoon. We had reservations for 7pm but waited outside at the host desk for several minutes before finally being greeted and led to our table. The host, however neglected to tell us the menu is online and so we sat and chatted until the waiter came to take our orders only to learn we hadn’t seen the menu yet.

The waiter himself was unsure, didn’t know the menu well, And was otherwise not skilled at his job. We cut him some slack assuming he was new.

We each order the strip loin steak with mash. Steak and mash where amazing! We couldn’t express how perfect the steak was. Unfortunately there wasn’t much else on the plate besides a rather small roasted tomato. We each wanted something more such as mixed veg to round out the meal. For dessert we shared a carrot cake with a small portion of sour cream ice cream. The ice cream was good but the cake may as well have been from the grocery store. Hardly worth $9.

Overall amazing steak, good ambiance but too expensive for what you get and very poor service. Would not recommend.

Overall the experience was nice. Would not recommend the peach salad as all who tried it where not pleased. The salmon platter on the other hand was fairly adequate. The main courses were fine as well as the desert. Nothing earth shattering. Service was great, everyone was very polite and delightful. The experience was fine, we would simply not return due to the food.

The Guild service staff were outstanding, each and every one of them! The beer was cold, the wine took a bit of time to secure, but it was great in the end. Food was what you'd expect - ample, full of flavour, salty and just fine for an outdoor café.

We went for a friends birthday brunch, I always walk by this place and have thought about going in forever but kept missing my chance. It was a really great summer afternoon, we had the best time. There was a DJ when we were there that afternoon and that made our experience even more fun!

We tried the summer feast menu, the appetizer was outstanding and pretty good dessert. I had the burger for main course which was tasty but not too special. We were seated outside, since we went for lunch, and maybe due to COVID the in door tables were not open. We had a group of 6 and were able to social distance with all the other tables.
