I have visited here a few times and there is always something surprising from the kitchen! The creations are beautifully imagined and plating is crisp and artistic. The pairings are on point, carefully selected and considered. I love that they offer kitchen tours and let me tell you, the kitchen is pristine!

I can't wait to visit again!

Love the tasting menu, well worth the price. Interesting look thru the kitchen. Views of the river are excellent. Good for couples or small parties. Reservations a must. Parking is a challenge.

Two of us went to the cooking class for dinner preparation. The chefs were good teachers, patient, informative and with a sense of humour. What stood out was their passion for what they did and the teamwork. This 3 hour lesson was followed by the Chef's Dinner. The seven course meal was exceptional. The carrot cardamom geode was a work of art that exploded with flavour in your mouth. The cured egg yolk, the Prosecco compressed strawberries....... I could go on and on. Will never visit Calgary again without going to this restaurant. Highest recommendation possible.

Was amazed at the outstanding wedding we just went to in this central Calgary venue .
I really looked forward to this as we visited very quickly on the rehearsal day having flown in from Uk for our neices wedding . Was very impressed with professionalism of team . Marcelo was outstanding and Jessie extremely helpful and approachable and so professional .
The wedding was amazing and the reception at this lovely restaurant was sublime . I loved the decor . The staff were truly outstanding ( this coming from me is remarkable as I am a retired restaurant , cafe , guest house owner trained by Grand Metropolitan hotels in management so my bar of expectations is set extremely high ! )
I have real food issues after a nasty operation last year has left me with immune problems that manifest in food intolerances . Hopefully temporary but very debilitating .
Q Haute staff bent over backwards to make sure I had the best time . Dean the chef was probably frustrated by my almost complete allergies .. Dairy , alcohol , histamine ! Who knew ? He made sure I had something within my dietary limitations at every course . I never felt as if I was missing out on anything . I even had a small beautifully formed glass carafe and dish of peppermint tea .. No alcohol for me allowed !!
The menu and quality of food was outstanding . My husband confirmed the beef( filet mignon was cooked sou vide )and was the best steak he had ever had .
My chicken was cooked au point , difficult to do with plain chicken breast , could so easily have been dry . Wonderful presentation .

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to any couple planning their wedding .

I hope to return for dinner when we return to Calgary .. Soon .. Very soon !
Thank you so much for looking after me and more importantly making this wedding one to truly remember for the young couple and all their guests !!
Fab U Lous !!

Heard good things from a friend so decided to try it out. Parking was a bit of a challenge with Calgary's rainy weather this year, but I managed to find a spot around the corner. The underground parking next door closes at 7:30 pm so not a great option. A couple of tours around the block landed me a spot.

The service was attentive from the maître d' to our servers. A chef's tasting menu is the feature of the restaurant and changes often. We had a total of seven courses including the palate cleanser and two desserts. Every dish was expertly prepared with a list of ingredients and attention to detail that was mesmerizing. Every bite had multiple complimentary flavors. The meal was a conversation piece throughout. The Sous Vide pork tenderloin had a buttery texture and was perfectly prepared and presented. So good in fact that I am now cooking sous vide at home... but on with the review.

The wine pairing had some interesting variations and went well with the food. Highly recommended. Just before dessert we were offered a tour of the kitchen and got to see some of the dishes in various stages of preparation. A nice touch.

Great place for a dinner out!

Thank Jeff S
