Dinner with the better half. Ambiance and service great as always. Ordered off the menu as the tasting menu had some items we did not want. Everything was excellent, particularly the cauliflower soup and beef tartare, but the tuna appetizer was not as good as...More

Alloy takes the dinner experience to a new level. Delicious entree's, desserts, and drinks make for a wonderful evening! Try something new, celebrate a special occasion, or take a date to one of Calgary's best restaurants.

Just had dinner with friends at Alloy. Restaurant tucked out of the way, but worth finding. Tapenade starter was nice with drinks, would have appreciated more humus with four at the table. Appetizers we're very tasty. Beet salad was a hit. The gnocchi was delicious,...More

Had the best meal here ever last night. Every course was perfectly done and delicious, and that is quite rare - usually there is something you don't like out of 7 courses. Bravo!

A cool Reno on a commercial building in a out of the way spot. Great food, diverse menu and excellent service. Try the truffle gnocchi as an appetizer. Really tasty.

This place is trying to be something better than what it is. The ambiance is faux trendy. The food was bland. The scallops were only seared on one side and tasteless. The risotto was tasteless. The short ribs were good. But maybe a 5 out...More

Ambiance is exactly the same--warm and delightful! Reception enthusiastic.. Took a long time for our pre-dinner cocktails. Cauliflower soup was nice and hot, small portion, and a bit tasteless. Albacore tuna was the special, and excellent. Chicken and the arctic char---very flavourful. Salads--very fresh! Wines...More

Not formal but it's generally not appropriate to wear jeans in the classier restaurants although a lot of people do.

There must be some confusion. Alloy Restaurant is a single story building and I do not understand the reference to the "pineapple building" or water parks. There is no water park in the vicinity of Alloy.
