The Wednesday Room
The ambiance was great and the food and service was great but the drinks take a long time to make and arrive.
Great meal was lucky to enjoy a beautiful evening sitting on the Patio with my husband and niece from Vancouver
Great food in a very cool atmosphere right in the middle of Stephen Ave in DT Calgary! I will visit again.
Rachelle was our server and she was amazing. Best service I have had in Calgary :)
Honestly the food just wasn’t worth the price - wasn’t happy with any of our appetizers or main dishes. Don’t waste your time getting the beets or the octopus oyster dish as both are bland and not worth it. Really disappointed, we left spending a fair amount on dinner just to go and get food elsewhere as none of the table felt satisfied or happy with their meal. If your going for drinks and the atmosphere then absolutely would recommend but don’t go for your dinner, you can spend the same price somewhere else and get way more food that you will actually enjoy.
They were clearly understaffed as the bartender was waiting tables and didn’t have enough time to do so effectively. The share plates came out all at once with no explanation of what we were eating. It was extremely noisy and the icing on the cake was the pepper spray scent that permeated the room at the end of the evening causing staff and patrons to cough and have runny eyes. Although this was beyond the restaurant’s control, no solution or compensation was offered for this unpleasant experience.
Took my friend here for her birthday and it was the perfect place! We split some appetizers and cocktails, which were delicious! The ambience here is very cool!
Kitchen was having an off day, but the staff went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our evening. Food was great. Our table of three each had different mains and we had 4 sharables. So good. The popcorn was a standout. Dessert wasn’t my favourite, and I’m a huge sweet tooth. We got the 3 dessert options- the cinnamon toast crunche was the best and while tasty not anything to rave about. But the mains were out of control, So Good! What was very noticeable was the balance of flavours. Everything needed to be on the plate, all the items stood out apart and were glorious together.
Amazing food - great space
The Wednesday room was a fun place to sit and have a few drinks. The decor and vintage feel were well done and felt genuine except for two things, first was the random "hipster" paintings hanging on the one wall, they made no sense to the vibe the room was going for and were just plain ugly. The second was the music, for a place that is meant to feel like a 60's style lounge the choice of music was awful, it was like music you would hear in a dark crowded night club, if they had played some music from the era the decor was going for it would have made for a much better experience. Also the noise level from other tables was quite high and the proximity of the tables was to tight, I felt like I had to talk over the tables on either side of us. Overall the place was good though and I will return again in the future. Hopefully some of the short comings will be addressed by then.
I loved the space itself, and all staff were very friendly. The food...AMAZING. Every dish was so tasty and I will definitely return and be recommending the Wednesday Room.
Loved the atmosphere of this place. It’s not your typical restaurant. The cocktails were on point and the server was knowledgable of the drinks. The 60’s music was great and not too loud.
Love Chloe best server ever
We booked our reservation in advance so that we could make it on time to our 8pm concert. We showed up at 6pm, ordered a drink, and then ordered our meals and an appy. It did not seem very busy in the restaurant but I do realize there’s a basement.
The appetizers came out well after an hour of sitting there. At that time we realized it was taking a long time and we sort of had to hurry! We made a comment to the server about the slow turnaround and she said sorry the kitchen is understaffed. The food came out 90 mins after our reservation time. We asked for our bills and to pay 3 times. We also had to ask to speak to the manager twice. They promo’d our food 25% but really didn’t feel they cared and each person blamed the slow service on each other.
Not in a rush to go back.
Food was out of this world!
We always have a great dining experience here! The Jerk Chicken Bowl is very tasty & delicious & the coconut mango parfait is very yummy. The service is always super friendly & attentive.
The room and decor were both gorgeous. The food, while not bad, was average at best. There are many great restaurants in Calgary that provide amazing service and dining experiences better than this.
Great food enjoyed the experience....desert was great
Not the best ... we made a reservation for three they had it set up at a table for two so they put us at the top right by the entrance .... offered us champagne because of it ... however when we ordered food the tuna tacos where ridiculously small for the price ... not impressed this time ... brought friends for out of town because of how good my first experience was...
Every time I make a reservation, we are sat in the upstairs area with maximum one other table of guests, which I find very frustrating because the downstairs section is much nicer and much livelier.
The Stone Bowls are excellent.
Overall great experience, would do it again!
Burger was amazing. Service was excellent.
For a place that is SO hard to get into, it was half empty when we left at 7:30 on Saturday night and that took away a bit of the appeal. I had the scallops and BBQ glazed pork belly which was PHENOMENAL. My partner at the Waygu beef entree which wasn't bad but it was WAY under-seasoned and therefore quite underwhelming. Service and decor/atmosphere were lovely.
Loved our visit to The Wednesday Room. Food was excellent, we had the popcorn & chicken for sharing to start. Both were simple but done to perfection. I had the wagyu burger & my wife had the gnocchi. Both were sensationally good courses. My only complaint on the burger was the bun was a little too heavy and thus I didn't finish it all. The burger meat, was as you'd expect from wagyu, tender, flavoursome & delicious. Atmosphere was great, lots of people sitting out in the sun & good vibe. The decor is beautiful inside & the staff were really friendly & helpful. Highly recommended for Calgary.
Our server Chloe was absolutely amazing, it was our second time here and we decided to let her and the kitchen decide our meal. From the cauliflower to the bao, each bite was past anything we could have expected.
Thank you so much for another incredible evening!
Can’t wait to be back with friends and family for another unforgettable meal/experience.
The food was OK, not fantastic. Also, I had to send a martini back because it didn’t taste right at all. The 2nd came in a smaller glass and I was charged for both of the drinks. So basically, 1 1/2 martinis cost me over $20. Ouch.
Great drinks. Great decore.
Service was fantastic, happy hour specials where good too. The new menus was fair.
The food was creative, delicious and appealed to all 5 of us. We especially found our server to be excellent. She was attentive, well informed and very pleasant. Thank you.
Good apps and drinks! Will be back to try some of the other dinner options !!!
Upon arriving we were really quickly seated and had water and a bottle of wine/food within 15 min of ordering everything. Our server chose an amazing red for us to enjoy with the fried chicken, ricotta toast, carpaccio , and the dirty fries.
The food was on point and after mentioning I work as a chef myself, our server allowed me to go in to the back and shake the chefs hand and give him my compliments.
All in all one of the best Dining experiences I’ve had in Calgary to date. We are definitely going to be back for more and I can’t wait to try the rest of their menu!!
Thank you so much for such a great evening!!
Definitely a perfect spot to share plates with friends or on a night where you don't really know what you want so you pick a dish or two and keep the evening going from there...
Three people and we ordered 6 “sharing” plates: chicken,hummus, cauliflower, wagon beef, beets,dirty fries. Loved all except Cauliflower, and hummus; personal preferences! Service was excellent.
It is a great spot for a date and also for friends. 😊
The Wednesday room is a fantastic cocktail lounge to enjoy with a smaller group. 2 thumbs up for food. Appetizers and shareable plates were absolutely delicious!! Service was prompt. Atmosphere = upscale chill with warm ambience. I will definitely be back!
Wonderful we will be back soon 👌🏼
First time here for lunch. We were seated in the lower level, and it was a quiet day, so not a lot of ambience. Our server did a very good job. The food was good, not memorable, but was good value for the price.
So all was good, but I prefer this place after work or in the evening when it shines.
Family time ... celebrating life and living each day and every moment to the fullest!
I absolutely love this place! I wouldn't change a thing about any of my experiences. Fabulous.
