    Amazing all around!! Fantastic menu, which they change in seasons and it stays fantastic when they do! Served family style which is always a bonus if you go with someone you’ll enjoy sharing with. Really fun drink menu, and the type of drinks you don’t mind paying for because who has all those ingredients at home. Also wonderful service, the staff and service was quick and attentive and the floor staff was also really nice!

    We came on a rainy day so the dark interior seemed to feel even colder. The dining room set up is like your gramma's house when all the family comes over; pop up tables around a room. The service is excellent but the menu was small. Not sure I would go again. The novelty of the decor is the reason I'd recommend it to a friend.

    The food was great but small portions. The service was lackluster. Our server seemed overwhelmed by the large party she was also serving and our table felt like a bit of an afterthought. There was also a bartender who continued to come by our table and others asking how things were. This man seemed to be intoxicated as he seemed a bit wobbly when coming by. These elements were quite disappointing for the price point.

    Went here on a Wednesday for the all day Happy Hour and turns out they just changed the menu. When we were greeted there was confusion since the hostess told us 7:45 not sure what that means. She wasn’t clear and not welcoming. The music was good there was a piano guy playing but clashed with the music they have playing. The drinks and food was amazing!

    Management doesn’t seem focused on the patron’s experience. Tip auto set for 18% and up (implies a certain arrogance) No Menus and no QR codes (just odd).

    WE were there for lunch and it was not very busy. Despite that they seated two gentlemen right next to us. Really? And guess what they delivered their order to us. I thought I ordered the pulled pork. It was 90% bun and I have no idea what type of pork chunks they use. Likely from a few nights ago. Very disappointing.

    The staff were good and friendly at reception, the waiter seemed a little annoyed to be there or something? the food tasted good, but the menu was very limited. In comparison to other similar priced locations like Bridgette bar, Model milk and others I would choose them. Overall good, but nothing special.

    Unfortunately, this restaurant has all of the makings of a good spot but it really misses the mark on the food. You read the menu and it sounds like you’re in for this great experience of delicious food, but it just really missed the mark and was not executed well at all. The servers are attentive, friendly and great, and the physical restaurant has a great vibe, but the food just doesn’t not deliver at all.

    Amazing atmosphere, excellent menu. The servers were kind and very attentive. The cocktails menu is well put together and curated! The only qualm I have with this AMAZING restaurant is that the menu and cocktail menu visually look like they were put together in 5 minutes, which takes away from the ambience of the restaurant itself. Otherwise, the food was delicious (try the salmon!) and the curated cocktails were also amazing.

    We started outside, there was no music or heaters, and the decor felt cheap and didn’t match the inside or intended quality of experience. Our first choice of drinks and food weren’t available. We waited a very long time for make drink and food orders. The food was good but not amazing.

    This is my 3rd trip to the Wednesday Room and this time the menu was super limiting. No vegetarian, fish or chicken large dish which made it hard to enjoy a shared dinner. Cocktails were ok and the service was attentive. I just hope the menu gets reviewed with some more variety’s

    So chic and beautiful setting. The mid century modern and 60’s style carpet makes you feel like you stepped back in time but in an upscale way. The concept of the hotel Bar from the shining makes it extra cool. The cocktails were all named after incredible directors and movies which I really enjoyed and the cocktails themselves were some of the best I’ve had in Calgary. Food is always amazing
