Sure, the place is large enough (as it takes up over half of the entire Delta Bow Valley foyer) and elegant with its huge fireplace and way oversized booths and the service is professional and efficient if not overly friendly... but there is literally no excuse for the prices here for what you get. It's definitely aimed at the shameless... More

I am currently staying at the Delta Downtown Hotel Calgary. I have eaten at Elements bistro for a breakfast, lunch and dinner. The service at all times has been cheerful, friendly and efficient. My meals have all been very tasty, well priced and fresh. But the real stand out here..... they have a gluten free menu, and a large portion... More

We met up with family and friends here as we were staying in the hotel. Although the bar was very busy, the bar staff were excellent. They were on the ball when asking you about drink refills and the food was served very quickly and expertly - I know of quite a few places in the UK who would benefit... More

Honestly, it's kinda pricey but the food is pretty good and the service is decent. Plus, when you're not looking to stray too far from the hotel, it's not a bad option.

Having an awful head cold is bad enough, but add being away from home and at a conference in close proximity to other people...for 4 days... This business trip had the markings for a nightmare ... Until Lien, TQ and Bihn show up. These three amazing women work for the Bistro and room service division...and they are like Mama hens... More

The food and staff were great. I ate breakfast from the buffet, ordered room service late after my meetings and also indulged in a bacon cheese burger recommended by my hostess prior to my departure. I am happy with the quality and taste of everything I tried and especially very happy with the service I received each day. The bacon... More

We ate here twice whilst staying at the Delta Bow and loved both meals. The service was good and the food was delicious. The Salmon was especially nice.

The staff are fantastic and were really accommodating. The menu was varied, however, prices were a tad ridiculous. I ordered the scallops which I thought were a meal, and I think in reality, they are an appetizer. Three scallops on a bed of about 1/4 c of quinoa. Tasty but at $16 doesn't quite seem reasonable. Again, the staff were... More

My wife and I had drinks here along with an order of their hummus and pita. The drinks were a little watered down, but The Mediterranean, which was flatbread plus hummus, was excellent.

After a long day of flying, we found the soups and salads at this bistro inside the Delta Bow Valley Hotel an excellent choice for a simple meal before bedtime!
