Good food, courteous service. This is a convenient restaurant for travelers heading through Calgary to Banff and BC. Food is good with ample portions. The time to get food ordered to when it shows up at your table can be a bit long however it gives one an opportunity to finish a glass of wine before the delivery of your... More

We often come here for a meal with our friends because it is quiet enough to visit. The menu is varied and decently priced. The favourites of our group are the souvlaki, pita, bison burger and steak sandwich. The salads are fresh and crispy. We don't tend to have the pizza here as there are many choices on the menu,...

Having been a fan of Van Gogh's years back, we stopped by on the way back from Calaway Park despite the poor reviews to judge for ourselves. The place was empty except for 1 guy watching the ball game in the lounge. Despite this it took over 5 minutes for someone to serve us and I had asked an Asian... More

TERRIBLE! Since the change in ownership this place has gone downhill. The food is disgusting, service is horrendous and the establishment is dirty. When complaints are brought to managements attention they could care less. As a Valley Ridge resident, I find it such a shame that there are limited food options in the neighbourhood. I HIGHLY recommend avoiding this place... More

My husband and I were traveling from Calgary to Banff on vacation. We decided to pull off the highway after seeing a sign for food, and it was already late for lunch. We found the Van Gogh Grill and Bar. I tried a spinach salad, and my husband ordered the bison burger. For several days now, he has continued to... More

A friend and I went to this pub today and was extremely disappointed. Sat at the bar and the Asian girl was nothing short of rude and miserable. Slamming glasses with ice in front of us and seemed purposely doing it. I ordered a chicken dish with Greek salad and when I asked the waitress for olives as I had... More

This local restaurant used to offer decent food for reasonable prices. We hadn't been in years and decided to check it out. Our first hint should have been that at 6:00 on a Friday the place was empty. The food was terrible. The greek salads came with ONE olive and no dressing. The $28 steak was bland...seemed like it was... More

Like Jason C, I've been living in the neighbourhood for 10 years. Since the new ownership the quality has gone down and pricing has gone up. The "last straw" happened on April 8, 2016. Two burgers with fries/salad and two draft beers plus 15% tip cost $55. The Men's Room was gross and looked like it hadn't been cleaned in... More

Used to come here years ago, it's progressively gotten worse. Will NEVER return or spend another dime here. Didn't get served until I went to the bar after 15 minutes of sitting there with 2 kids. Food was awful, beer was flat, and to top it off the owner did not remove the awful meals from our bill. He charged... More
