Our server kindly took my phone to charge behind the bar during lunch. Then, I left and forgot to pick it up. I called the restaurant from my next meeting when I realized my mistake, but they were going to close before my meeting was finished. Get this: The awesome server offered to walk to my next meeting and drop off the phone. I was blown away. Oh, and the food was AMAZING too. So there's that. More...

I went to Foreign concept for dinner, the restaurant has a great ambiance, it wasn't too loud or crowded. Their service was exceptional, we asked lots of questions about the food and drinks, at one point our server asked the bartender to come and give us a commendation on a wine pairing which was really nice. We ordered a few appetizers, 2 main dishes and desserts. My favorites were the pickled vegetables!!, salt and pepper tofu and forbidden rice and coffee parfait. I can't wait to go back and try the rest of their menu. More...

After coming once, this has become one of my favorite restaurants in Calgary. Every dish was packed full of flavor and each was completley different from the last. My family doesn't tend to like more exotic flavors but loved every dish we ordered. I only wish the lighting was a little brighter so we could more easily see the wonderful presentation of each dish.

Foreign Concept is such a treat! The food and drinks are creative, accessible, and delicious. There are drinks and food that are (upgraded) variations on familiar favorites and combinations that I have never before seen. The service was equally impressive. Our server Tonya/ Tanya (?)was knowledgeable, friendly, enthusiastic, attentive, and helpful. I think we were lucky though, one server watched a serving spoon fall off our table, made eye contact with me, and walked away. Unfortunately, other employees there that night at whom I smiled when I noticed them looking over at us responded with the same blank stare. More...

So.....if I could give this mire than 5 stars I absolutely would. To start the service was fantastic! Our server was the only one working and she never missed a beat. She also made great recommendations as we were having a hard time deciding (it all looked so good). The atmosphere was lovely and very clean inside. When our food came, each and every dish was perfection!! My only regret is I was too full to keep ordering more. This is a must go to restaurant from now on when I am in Calgary. More...

We feasted on appy's and drank wine! The appy's were wonderful, didn't have the main course. really enjoyed the charcuterie and the Brussels sprouts and the spring roll. Probably would have given 5 stars if we had ordered main course! More...

This was our first time dining here and I would go back. The shed dish approach is fun with a couple or small group.We enjoyed the brussels spouts, found the cauliflower average, like the Begogi (sp? ) rolls. Mains were pork chop and fried rice (yum!)Decent wine list by both the glass and bottle. More...

Date night out with my wife. I searched Vietnamese on Open Table and this came up as a suggestion. It was definitely more Korean Fusion than Vietnamese, but this was probably one of the best meals we have had at a restaurant in the past few years. We will definitely return again. Staff was friendly and courteous. Food was absolutely amazing!!! More...

Service was amazing. Food was amazing! Place is adorable. It’s a thing we have to get used to but our table was really close to another couple that was there for our whole sitting. So we kind of felt like we were sharing a table. This is more of an us issue than a problem with the restaurant. Will definitely go back! More...

I enjoyed the food and service at Foreign Concept, but I'm afraid my perception of the food may have been tainted by having eaten a similar meal at Anju the day before. I had a char siu pork bowl and honey butter chips. They were both good, but I felt like the Korean lunch set I got from Anju was tastier, and better value for a similar price. I love chips so the honey butter chips were exciting to me - crispy and sweet with a tangy lemon aioli that went perfectly with the chips. Nice portion, too. I took the remaining chips back to my hotel.The music was nice but a little on the loud side for my taste, especially for midday as opposed to evening when you might expect a hip bar/restaurant to have louder music. The service was also excellent, and quick. I would go back again but maybe try something different. More...
