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!

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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)

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!

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 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.
Thanks!
