    Last year when we came the service was poor, and the food barely mediocre. We tried again before our play 2 days ago- I'm glad we did. Jordan was a knowledgeable and personable server, the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! It tasted like there was a whole new executive chef who revamped the whole menu. Will be back for sure!!

    Came with my wife and another couple for dinner before we went to a play at Theatre Calgary. Our food was so delicious we all shared a bite or two with one another. The service was awesome and we all said we'd definitely go back. We told the waiter to give our compliments to the chef and soon afterwards the chef came over to chat with us. He was beaming and deserved the compliments.

    Hello, JanetS! Thank you for taking the time to leave us with a positive review score. We also appreciate how you shared the experiences that you enjoyed most. The Eggs Benedict during our Sunday Brunch Buffet are not displayed but made fresh. Please feel free to ask your server about it. It comes with the buffet so you would not have to worry about paying extra for each order. Thank you again for your feedback. We look forward to providing you with another wonderful dining experience with us.

    Great place. The food is excellent a little on the fancier side. Hence why 4 stars, if you are more traditional which I am. Yet the service is great and the ambiance is lovely sitting in the pub side with the fireplace. Highly recommend.

    The food is just mediocre. The “cheese and charcuterie” board could have included a better variety and more bread, crackers. It felt like a bunch of leftovers gathered and dropped on a board. Service was good but the restaurant did seem understaffed.

    Don't think we'll be back. After booking a reservation, we were sandwiched between two large groups, often ignored, waited far too long for our drinks. Food actually came out faster than our drinks did. FOH manager doesn't know how to handle large groups apparently, serving staff were doing the best they could. It wasn't awful, but for the cost, it's not worth it anymore.

    Have been to Thomsons several times for Christmas buffet and it was always excellent. I was a little disappointed with the Thanksgiving buffet. My beef and turkey were barely luke warm. Potatoes and gravy were cold. I was looking for crackers for the salmon and cheese. Couldn’t find any. The best thing on the buffet was the butternut squash pear soup. It was excellent.

    Our family stopped in here for an early evening meal before heading to the CPO, and what a lovely place - we had excellent and attentive service, beautifully presented and tasty food, and the decor and ambience was chic and inviting. The teens and my husband had the bacon cheeseburger with fries and loved it; I had the mussels frites which were very enjoyable, and we all shared the steak bites, salmon, and kettle chips as appetizers which hit the mark with everyone on flavour and presentation. They also have a wide selection of wines and beer. We will be back!

    While I understand inflation is an issue, it was disappointing that the steak sandwich ( my favorite) has become smaller and the same price or perhaps even more. The taste was great however the portion was noticeably different. My mom had the fish and chips -- $23 for one piece of Cod -- yikes. If your menu and prices are going to change perhaps you could offer 15 percent off to those who dine with you and are going to use the spa. Just a thought. The service and our waitress -- 100 percent!!!
