Another wonderful meal! Everything was looked after very well - excellent service. The staff went over and above in honouring a meal request for the couple dining with us. Our meal was prepared very well and timed nicely. Close attention to distancing and appropriate cleanliness practices was evident, which we appreciated. All in all, a great dining experience on the patio, enjoying the beautiful weather!
We are very happy that you had such a great dining experience and that you felt that way. We would love to see you again.
Wonderful Canadian food. The bannock absolutely delicious. The salmon which I had with my Caesar/Kale salad was cooked to perfection. Everything was delightful. Three cheers to the chef.
Thank you very much for your feedback and I will pass cheers to our culinary team.
We chose Eating at outdoor , enjoyed the great food with nice environment !
Lunch menu is good with lots of choices. We tried burger & lobster wrap. Will try steak sandwich next time.
We are glad that you enjoyed our food and we are looking forward to seeing you again.
Wonderful little gem of a restaurant! Nice quiet atmosphere, conducive for quiet conversation, nice environment, great staff!
Thank you so much for a nice review.
We very much enjoyed the atmosphere, friendly and attentive service and food.
Thank you very much for such a kind review.
A wonderful evening. Everything from the food to the service was terrific.
Thank you kindly for a great review.
3 of the 4 meals came out well along with the appetizer, but my steak sandwich that was supposed to be medium well was more medium rare and very tough.
Service was great though and they did a good job to comply with the COVID19 rules.
Thank you very much for your feedback. We are looking forward to seeing you again.
First night open after Covid (part 1?). Excellent and safe. A few opening night kinks but nothing major. Worth the trip.
Thank you for you feedback and thank you very much for your support.
We always enjoy our
Great dining experience and excellent service, food, and staff.
Thank you for visiting us and we are happy that you had a great experience. We would like to see you again.
Four of us had a lovely YYC special lunch on Saturday March 14. Our lady server was excellent , friendly and attentive. Our food was delicious and good value. And the ambience is lovely with the wooden bar and large windows. We will certainly return.
Thank you very much for a nice review and we are looking forward to see you again once we reopen our restaurant.
I took my mother to the Selkirk grill to celebrate her 75th birthday. She loved it , remarking on the way home that it was as nice as visiting the Fairmont Hotel in Banff for lunch. We went to Selkirk during foodanddrinkexp and our three course lunch was excellent. A heirloom tomato based salad wins followed by excellent Arctic char with a saffron broth which was coked perfectly and delicious! Dessert was a lemongrass Panama cotta which was also excellent. We highly recommend the Selkirk Grill for a quiet lunch or dinner that is both delicious and rejuvenating in its comfortable surroundings.
Thank you very much for recommendation.
What a great lunch. I was with my mom who is a senior and uses a walker. The meal was delicious and it’s not to loud so you can have a conversation. I would recommend this to anyone.
Thank you very much.
1. Food - YYC menu smoked duck was decent. Prime Rib was soft, but not flavourful. Bannock with the three types of butter was delicious.
2. Service - waiter was rushed, not sure if he was stressed out with another big table nearby. One of his colleagues did come by to check in on our food taste and another colleague to give house-bread.
Perhaps lunch/brunch is better?
Good food but the size of the main was inconsistent. I was still hungry after our Prix Fix lunch.
Selkirk Grill has always been one of my favourite places. The atmosphere is lovely, food amazing and service always excellent. Looking forward to going again soon.
Thank you and we are looking forward to seeing you again.
As always fantastic.
Thank you very much for your feedback.
Wow, what a secret gem of a restaurant. We discovered SG within the YYC food and drink Experience. They had a special menu that we could not pass on. The food was amazing. The drinks were so good. Our server, Ross, was superb. Everything about this was awesome. We didn’t even know there was a casual, fine dining restaurant at Heritage Park. We will definitely be back.
Thank you for you a very nice review and we are looking forward to have you back in our restaurant.
I had 2 appetizers for lunch, the French onion soup and crab cakes, the soup was very good, the crab cakes were all crab in a light breading, with delicious aoli. We will return for another birthday next month.
Thank you very much for such wonderful review. We are looking forward for your visit next month.
We loved the atmosphere and the food. Such a hidden gem. Our server Donal was a delight!
Thank you for your feedback and I am going to pass compliments to Donal.
Great restaurant... always enjoyable. Good food, good prices. Great hidden gem.
Thank you for your feedback.
The service on valentines was very good and the suggested wine pairings were delicious! Overall we enjoyed our meal but the server offered to replace our main since it wasn’t hot. Also we were looking forward to bannock, steak, and creme brûlée for dinner (regular menu on website) but were disappointed that only the set valentines menu was available. I didn’t seem to see that on the website when we booked. Food was tasty but not what we would have ordered.
Thank you very much for your feedback.
Hostess was a hot mess and serving staff seem to be overwhelmed for a easy venue.
Food was really over priced for how small of portion.
The sad thing is that this is such a beautiful restaurant. I am not sure if I am getting too picky or asking too much from an establishment but that is my prerogative.
This was a disappointing meal from the moment I walked in. There was confusion at reception about my reservation. 3 confused people at the front is not helpful.
I hate a set menue...I was never told that it was.
The waite staff seemed confused. The traffic around us was unusual. Too many people with empty hands when there were dirty dishes on the table. Very unusual.
Salad was fresh and pleasant.
Soup was like Campbells Cream of Tomato.
We had the fish. Under cooked. But nice presentation.
Dessert was a nice chocolate tarte.
The price was twice what I would have paid anywhere else. $200.00 for this meal was stupid.
In all fairness the menue on regular evenings is quite good but this was the second visit and the first was better but still lackluster.
My dinner date felt the same way about the experience.
I regret you had a bad experience in our restaurant. it is exactly opposite of what we pride ourselves. We appreciate your feedback and we will use it for further training our staff.
Valentines Day was spent with our good friends. We like the restaurant and atmosphere but last year’s meal was much better.
Great food. We went for Valentines Day and the food and wine paring was the excellent.
Thank you very much for a great review. We are very happy that you had such wonderful experience in our restaurant. We are looking forward for seeing you again in our restaurant.
Made reservations for Valentine’s Day 3 weeks early, and they confirmed twice we were coming. We were seated in the middle of a near empty restaurant, which felt extremely awkward, but we very excited for the special menu for that evening. There was an abundance of wait staff. Disappointingly no one spoke to us once were seated. We sat and for 15 minutes observed as 3 other tables were seated, their wine poured and drinks served. As we still waited, these tables were then served their salads. We decided were not going to enjoy our evening staying at this restaurant, so we left.
I apologize for your recent experience at our restaurant. We pride ourselves with excellent food and excellent customer service. I would like to invite you back to our restaurant and to restore your confidence in our service. I appreciate the time you took to write this review. Please feel free to contact me any time at email@example.com.
We had a wonderful Valentine’s Day supper. The special meal included a salad, bisque, main course and dessert. Wonderful service!
Thank you very much for compliments and we are delighted that you had wonderful Valentine's. I am looking forward for your next visit.
Valentines Day- it was a set menu which was disappointing. Service was good but we felt very rushed. Unfortunately the main course was horrible. We had the chicken. It was very dry and tasteless. The rice and veggies were just ok. Salad was also just ok. The soup was delicious and desert was good. Overall very overpriced ($200 including wine)
Good for romantic celebration
Thank you for your feedback.
The restaurant is excellent in all respects. They have thought up some imaginative special events, too, including movie nights on every second Tuesday throughout the winter. You start with a three course meal and end up watching a movie (usually an oldie but goodie). All of that for $45. So much more civilized than a sticky-floored cinema where you get a ticket, popcorn, pop, and big bag of M&M's for close to the same price!
I am glad you had a very nice experience in our restaurant. We appreciate your feedback and we are looking forward to see you again.
We always enjoy our dining experience at the Selkirk. The meals are always well appointed and the service is great. The menu is creative and has seasonal changes which is wonderful.
HI Trevor, Thank you for a very kind review and your time you took to write a feedback. We value our costumers feedback and it helps us to improve our service overall.
We had a wonderful New Years dinner at the Selkirk Grille. Our waiter, Rudy, was outstanding as well as the manager. Thank you for starting 2020 off so well!!
Thank you Peggy for your kind review and we are looking forward to see you again in our restaurant.
All restaurants are somewhat stressed for a new years rush. The food quality was excellent.
Thank you for your kind review.
NYE dinner was such a disappointment. We have enjoyed several events with the Selkirk Grille before and they were outstanding in all aspects. What on earth happened?! No ambiance for NYE (satellite radio 90's top 40 music) no decor, or greeting upon entry. The hostess eventually came then lectured another staff member in front of us. The entry to the restaurant was completely dark and silent. Food quality for 6 course menu was very poor, even for a large event. Service was frightful. I had to ask for my wine pairing with every course. We overheard several complaints from other tables. The evening was advertised as a 'dining experience like no other', unfortunately that was accurate, but not in the way it was intended.
I regret that we provided you with bad service and a poor customer experience—it is the exact opposite of what we pride ourselves on. We value our customers and understand how important it is to offer exceptional service. We do appreciate your feedback.
there on new years eve. had the set menu, which was very good. the service was a little disjointed, but that is probs to be expected on NYE. all in all a nice experience
service was very slow. waited 25 minutes to order a drink. we ordered food at the same time since i didn’t want to risk waiting another 25 minutes. we had the burger and fish and chips. both were very good.
I would like to thank you for bringing this to our attention. It will help us improve our operations and services.
Such a great time,and felt so looked after.
Overall service and food top notch.
Thanks for leaving us such a wonderful review. We are thrilled that you loved your experience; our staff will definitely be happy to read what you wrote. We put customer experience and satisfaction as our priority, and your review reaffirms the hard work we put in every day. So thanks for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again.
I have been there a few times as I like the atmosphere and its quiet. ...if one wants to chat.. the decor is very nice. I was visiting with a friend from Ireland.
The salads lack something...very dry...maybe the dressing,,,I had the beetroot one... poor french fries there...home made would be nicer...great place but the food is very average.
Great food in a great location. A wonderful way to spend a lunch in beautiful surroundings.
