We went for the first time today and made a reservation for next month before even leaving the restaurant!!!Everything is AMAZING & DELICIOUS!!!!
This is the only restaurant in Calgary that we go for brunch. Food is always fresh, tasty and amazing. There’s different dishes every time we go so it’s never boring. Service is impeccable. Highly recommend. More...
I really hope this restaurant stays in business because the food is delicious (and is an excellent price too) but both times I’ve been here there aren’t many people; which is a real shame because it really is a gem. The service is great as well. We needed to find a place at the last moment for dinner before going to the theatre. Even though we didn’t have a whole lot of time the server made sure we got our meals fast enough that we were able to enjoy a coffee (the latte and cappuccino were both very good both times I’ve been here, which is hard to find in Calgary) and the over the top amazing dessert! The Yellow Door Bistro is great for lunch and dinner and, even though I don’t drink, has a lengthy drink menu. Our group left very happy and full for the theatre. More...
Our favourite non-classical brunch in Calgary. There's nothing like it.
My girlfriend loved it so that means I do too. Buffet for breakfast was good.
Service was great and the brunch buffet was excellent.
Order the tartar, Gnocchi and Crown of hen or something like that. Prob the best tartar I've had. Service was pretty darn good but maybe we visited at a slower time. I'd love to try breakfast but based on sure ifreviews not I should risk the wait time. I have one tiny criticism with the hen but why bother. Overall experience was I credible, make sure you book with OpenTable, trust me well worth the time. More...
Very good service, excellent food, just right sizes and very tasty.
I booked the reservation and noted that it ws for our anniversary in hopes to be seated in a nice spot. We did get very nice seats and our waiter also brought us 2 complimentary glasses of prosecco to help celebrate. I was very happy with the whole experience. More...
Good atmosphere - pleasant reception and staff very knowledgable and helpful Food was good but the asparagus and crab Caesar seemed to be a small dish and lacked the expected lettuce- but otherwise very good and lots of flavour - the green salad and feta was excellent. When next in Calgary would certainly go again More...
Overall a nice experience. The buffet food could be a little hotter but we enjoyed the variety of items for brunch. We appreciated them validating our parking ticket. Hostess service could be improved.
Food is always very good with a different theme every week. Staff is friendly but it is a little pricey.
Bottles of wine were half price, meal was very nice and reasonably priced
This place is amazing!
Great happy hour! The flatbreads were delicious. We also ordered the fries, which were tasty. The rest of the menu looked yummy too, so I’m sure we’ll be back! I appreciated that the beer menu featured local breweries. Cool decor and excellent service. More...
Very good service!
Love YELLOW DOOR! It’s consistent and never disappoints
As soon as we walked in the door our experience was amazing. We arrived about 15 minutes early and were seated outside but the pool and fire to enjoy a complimentary coffee. We were promptly seated at our reservation time and our server JR was amazing. He met and exceeded all of our needs (we were a high maintenance table). The food was delicious we will definitely be returning to try all the menus. A++ experience all around! More...
A Sunday brunch experience that was outstanding bar the tough crust on the bagels ( steak knives, maybe ) in our benedicts and the annoying issue of our waitress, Morgan's, appearance with the bill prior to any request and the words, " I hope you don't mind me leaving this on your table, there is no rush, take your time."The coffee stopped being topped up at this point. This was a first date experience for me, if I come back, I will ask for another, more amicable server. My tip did show my disapproval, I'm sorry guys. RL. More...
This was the best dining experience that I have had in many, many years. The decor and ambiance was stellar. The waiter's knowledge and suggestions were point on. The food and wine was delicious. There were many options for my dietary needs (gluten and lactose intolerance). I felt 100% comfortable when the food arrived that they chef had taken the necessary steps to ensure the food was gluten and lactose free. When the dessert menu arrived I asked how I would go about getting a cab and the individual I spoke with went out of their way to secure us a cab, ensure that the cab waited for us and arranged for our quick bill payment. I will return to this venue, suggest it to friends and family and encourage everyone to dine here. More...
Brunch buffet was somewhat cold. Service was fantastic which made up for the buffet.
We came for dinner before a show, the service was excellent, and the ability to have your parking validated for the night while you are out was a definite value add!
The place is awesome and the service is excellent. We will come back here and hope food choices will still be great variety. Keep it up guys!!!
the kitchen is very accommodating allergies, even when busy. the waitresses one and all are fantastic human beings that really care about their jobs. the time and effort they put in really shows. yellow door is a special gem in calgary that really high lights all that is good about the calgary brunch scene with none of the downside you experience at other establishments. More...
Probably the best service I have encountered in the city of Calgary in a very very long time. They made my birthday breakfast one to remember.
Long weekend and pride weekend, there should have more staff that morning, service was slow.
This place was amazing! I had the Avacado and Poached Egg toast! Will definitely be back again!
Best food, very kind employees, regularly great character. They charge reasonable rates and the food quality is good. Kudos.
Brilliant chef’s specialty pancakes! Like nothing I’ve had before, the 3 pancakes were literally small cakes stacked 5 inches tall! Soft inside/just-crisp outside, with blood-orange jam between the stacks. A great spin on an old classic. Well done! More...
I am celiac and had a wonderful experience at Yellow Door Bistro. The Hen Pate with Mortadella Mousse was amazing and I was pleased that the Chef's let us have this s a starter without ordering the rest of the tasting menu. I had the Halibut for dinner and it was outstanding!! It was a very delicious well balanced dish. My husband had the Beef Tenderloin and he said it was exceptional as well. Our waiter, Johnnie, was fantastic and was great at explaining the menu and taking my dietary issues into consideration. It was delightful and we will definitely be back. More...
We had the tasting menu and while the menu was great I felt the service was just a little off. In the past our servers were always there as our dishes were being served and explained the wine pairing
The staff were amazing and took great care of us. The food was absolutely delicious and the perfect amount. Would recommend to anyone. They even watched the clock for us do we could get to the theatre on time. More...
We have wanted to try this restaurant out for a while and finally did. Ambiance was great, service was wonderful and the food was good. Our waiter was very experienced and knowledgeable about the menu for drinks and dinner. I was very impressed. More...
Fantastic food and service
Beautiful restaurant with an amazing menu. Staff were friendly, personable, and very attentive. Food was absolutely delicious and the perfect amount. Will definitely eat here again and highly recommend for a beautiful date night or birthday dinner. More...
Had a great dinner at Yellow Door. Our server was well informed and courteous. The burrata was sumptuous and the tartar was the best I've had in Calgary so far. Mains were also delish! Would definitely go back. More...
The food was delicious and the service was great, but too pricey.
Wonderful service and food was excellent!
We had the 5 course. Amazing.
food and service very good; the wine list, not so much. we had a $200 gift certificate and the bill came to $160 but management would not allow the remaining $40 to be used for the tip nor give us a credit for the $40. Yet $200 in cash was used for the gift certificate. A bit of a rip-off and so we would not return. More...
Excellent food and unique choices for Sunday brunch. Service was bad. It took quite a while for dirty plates to be cleared. Waited on 2 separate occasions for plates to be restocked. No spoons anywhere for the dessert. More...
Love our waiter!!! Drinks were amazing, except pop tasted very flat, he checked it out, and was on top of it. However, something was still off so brought us a can of pop instead which was wonderful! Great atmosphere. French onion soup tasted like beef broth scraped off the bottom of a pot. Everything else was absolutely amazing though!!! More...
I rarely post reviews but had to after visiting Yellow Door for first time this evening for my wedding anniversary. Staff were amazing and the food was great with generous portions. We’ll be back.
Great Arctic char and pork belly
I had my engagement brunch last weekend and it was fantastic. Our server, Christian, went above and beyond to provide excellent customer service with greetings and always checking up on our guests. They chef and managers were respectful of our restrictions to the menu and offered alternatives as well as complimentary sweets to my fiancee and myself. We definitely enjoyed our time there and recommend anyone planning on hosting an event to check this place out. More...
Always a very lovely experience! Our service was wonderful, the food was very good, overall our favourite brunch spot.
Amazing brunch- the hot buffet is completely worth the price. Best eggs we’ve ever had! Also had the pancakes which were delectable. Our server, Stephanie, was so accommodating, kind, efficient and overall such a pleasant person to have for a wonderful Sunday brunch. Highly recommend this place. Super cool decor and atmosphere and everyone seemed very pleased with their experience. Wish we lived here to enjoy more often! More...
The brunch buffet on the weekend is awesome!!!!! The decor is really pretty as well.
The food was very good and the presentation was fantastic. My only complaint was that the fries were very spicy for my 8 year old granddaughter, and the waitress did not advise us of that beforehand. Other than that, Yellow Door is a terrific restaurant and I would highly recommend it to anyone. More...
We had the 5 course meal, which for $60 per person was absolutely outstanding. I would also highly recommend the wine pairings! We went for our anniversary and they treated us to complementary bubbles to kick off our celebration; we will definitely be back :) More...
It was not too busy when we came on a Monday. We were seated and served right away. Johnny, our server, having learned it was our first time to dine there graciously walked us through the menu. We were happy with our food choices from appetizer to dessert. Some of our favourites were the Wild Mushroom Flatbread, Bucatini, Ribeye, and Cherry Torte. It was also really nice that even after we’ve settled the bill Johnny still kept refilling our drinks - much appreciated! More...
The service was great!
Have been to YDB a couple of other occasions and always impressed with the presentation of food at the buffet - in Nova and delicious! The service was good and ambiance comfortable and conducive to conversation. More...
There were four of us for a quiet afternoon of visiting. Two were heading back to Ontario so we only had a couple of hours. Restaurant convenient to airport after a quick tour of downtown Calgary. Missed the buffet but the luncheon menu was perfect for our us. Tasty and very nicely presented. Very good service from all the staff. Very enjoyable experience. More...
Yellow door, was really nice to have breakfast there, buffet or from the menu, cool that you can reserve a table on the weekends or celebrate your birthday there, food quality is good, price for buffet is good, the ambiance and the decor is beautiful, I will absolutely come back here, children under 3 eat for free on the buffet.I would recommend to try this location. More...
Great brunch, excellent service
Everyone at the table thoroughly enjoyed the food. We had the five course degustation. The value at $60 a head was excellent for the quality of the dishes. The only minor criticism was that the final duck dish was a little too generous for a degustation. Our wait person was personable and informative. Always ready to answer questions about the dishes. More...
Great food great service awesome Sunday brunch
There were 5 in our dining party. The variety of appetizers (beef tartare, wild mushroom flatbread and the asparagus and crab salad) were all excellent. I had the Arctic Char as a main with pea risotto and it was delicious. Good ambiance and the prices were reasonable for the quality of food. More...
The decor and atmosphere is lovely! And the food is always fabulous. The brunch is for sure worth checking out if you are in town for a few days or even a local.
Good food, great service.
Amazing staff great food they even gave us a shuttle so we could make it to the stampede show on time after there was a fire alarm.
Honestly some of the best service I have had, really friendly and funny staff and even tho before we had a chance to start our meal there was a fire alarm and we had to evacuate they where still very helpful and accommodating, they gave us a glass of champagne on re-entry and got us a shuttle to the stampede grounds so we wouldn't miss our show.
One of my favorite places to go for brunch. The buffet is always great!
Quality food, good service
While I don't necessarily eat at hotel restaurants, when in Calgary I do eat at Yellow Door Bistro. Had the prix fixe with wine pairings for $60. Each of the three courses were delicious. Our server, Johnny, was very attentive and so knowledgeable of the wines and our preferences, he offered whites and reds that complimented the meal perfectly. We had a blueberry tea with our dessert , given the latter's taste profile.Duck was marvelous as was the home made pasta and sausage appetizer. More...
As per usual, the entire experience was perfect! Compliments to the entire service staff for a fantastic dining experience. Top marks to the kitchen staff for an incredible meal as well. We’ve had the pleasure of dining at YDB a number of times, and every time the experience is like the first. Excellence!! More...
Good execution of quality food; room for improvement of the French onion soup broth base; it was ashamed that the table behind us lack of public etiquette - broadcasting their conversations that we couldn't really enjoyed our quiet lunch.
Yummy food, great service!
Rich fabulous tastes reasonable price. We each had a good sized appetizer plate Wine for each of us and shared the scrumptious Orange cheesecake $60I will go back.
My partner and I had the 5 course prix fixe with regular wine pairing. Five course included pasta, seafood, fish, beef, and dessert course paired with a mixed of sparkling white and full bodied red wines. We really enjoyed the food, which was creative, flavourful, and surprising. Wine pairings were good for the most part, and service was good, however initially did not explain the pairings, we had to ask a couple times. Love the atmosphere of the place. My partner and I enjoyed discussing some of the whimsical decor.When I called I was told that "each course" had a drink included and I assumed that included a drink with dessert. We were offered a choice of dessert coffees. They were not included in the prix fixe and no mention of it was made when the menus were handed to us. It seemed a shady money grab considering we had already spent a fair amount on the prix fixe and wine pairing. A damper on an otherwise highly enjoyable and satiating evening. More...
This is one of my favorite places for brunch it is a little bit pricey but it is totally worth it. I've had been there a couple of times now and the food is delicious. The first time I went I was still a vegetarian so they actually did make some accommodations for the buffet and made me my own veggie Benedict and a couple things made to order even though I was doing the buffet. They have fresh made pastries and every time I've gone there is a different assortment of things in the buffet. The portion size are nice so you don't overeat but you can't help too anyways, because you want to try everything. The decor they have some very gorgeous art and lighting. This is definitely one of those places you want to call ahead and book a table because they can fill up very quickly. More...
Had breakfast poolside on Sunday morning. Menu has the usual breakfast options with a couple of extras. Food was good. Service was good. Will return.
Love the brunch buffet. Always a great selection. If the panna cotta is available, make sure you have one.
The service was the highlight of lunch today. We were so well taken care of with lovely staff.Will be back for sure
One of my favorite restaurant experiences in Calgary! The service is attentive, knowledgable and personalized and the food is delicious (our server recommended the Asparagus & Crab cesar salad and it was a highlight of the meal). Whenever I am asked for a recommendation for a dining experience in Calgary I recommend Yellow Door! More...
Food and ambiance was good. Service was not so great, did not ask if we wanted more to drink and after the initial how is everything when we got our food did not see her again and had to request the check.
Fabulous meal. Extremely helpful, pleasant and courteous staff. Meal was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked. Make sure to save room for a dessert. We had driven from out of town for my birthday and we were not disappointed. A little pricey but definitely worth it. More...
Delicious Brunch! Will be back to try the buffet
Stellar Asian fusion for a price. We had an excellent start with the Asparagus and Crab Caesar Salad. The asparagus was fresh and crunchy without being undercooked, and came with a delicious prosciutto, crispy croutons, and of course crab meat.For entrees we had the Haida Gwaii Halibut and Pork Belly. The halibut came with a fantastic smoked tomato velote sauce and was perfectly cooked. The pork belly was melt-in-your-mouth delicious and came with baked bean cassoulet with a refreshing charred cabbage and chimichurri garnish.Everything was very well done. I can't wait to try other items on the menu! More...
This is a great place to meet friends & have great food, drinks & friendly service. I recommend it highly. The decor is unique & welcoming.
Food was wonderful. However the service was top notch!!!
We tried their brunch buffet on Saturday morning and they have a good variety of options and great service.
This place was amazing. I have been to quite a few Calgary restaurants and this one is by far my favorite. I have been to both the brunch and dinner options and was amazed. The atmosphere was spectacular and whimsical and the food was delicious. More...
When I first walked in I was worried that they wouldn’t be a child friendly restaurant. The decor is very modern, lovely and expensive looking (all their food is kept warm in Le Creuset cast iron enameled dishes) However, the hostess quickly made us feel welcomed and assured us that everyone is welcome and we would soon see other families pouring in from the hotel. The food was amazing. Not necessarily anything I would have ever order off the menu ( Thai basil bread pudding and some kind of orange infused ricotta crepe YUM). The service was outstanding. Not once did I need to ask for a coffee top up and dishes were cleared promptly. I will definitely be going back next time we are in town. More...
The best restaurant ever good service delicious food
Amazing service! Our server was so bubbly and helpful
We like the ambience here, service is amazing and food is on point. Great spot for a special occasion or date night!
The four of us enjoyed all aspects of our experience, appetizers through dessert. Service was great, too.
Great brunch buffet, service is a bit spotty but I think that's because of the buffet setup, sometimes food isnt available, sometimes hard to track someone down for coffee, but our server was pleasant when she did come around, always a favorite for a celebration brunch for us
Excellent food and service. Our seating was directly across from the entrance, which is not as pleasant as the other locations within the restaurant. I would recommend requesting a different area if you are making a reservation. More...
Brunch for four on Father's Day. We all chose to order from the A La Carte menu (as opposed to buffet), service was slow but when the food arrived it was hot and delicious.
We went for fathers day dinner at Yellow Door with our 4 kids. We did an early dinner so the place was fairly quiet. The seating was good and we got a crescent-shaped table in the corner for ourselves. The service was very good and the food impeccable! They also offered to make a child friendly cheese pizza/flat bread for our little one. And all of us loved it! We and the kids loved our meal. And we Will be coming back! More...
They have a pretty good brunch buffet on Saturdays, with a good variety of options. Coffee, juice and bread are served at the table, and actually the service is good as well. A good place to go with friends and family. More...
We had an excellent experience at Yellow Door Bistro. The food was very tasty and unique. Our server had an terrific sense of humour and was very attentive. The room was quiet which made conversation a pleasure. I would definitely go again. More...
Great evening out
Great experience for my wife’s birthday! Had a great time
Beautiful place. Menu although small, amazing. Booked a family reservation the next day.
Phenomenal service and delightful food.
The food was unique and amazing! The place was packed but we could all still hear each other talk. We were very happy with our experience.
Great experience for my wife’s birthday. The ribeye is to die for. Half price wine was always a lovely touch.
The chef's selection was so delicious, creative and affordable for both the 3 course and 5 course. Our server Cory was fantastic. They even brought a glass of free bubbly for each of us to celebrate our anniversary. What a great evening! Thanks so much More...
Excellent food, prompt service, and friendly and attentive wait staff! Went with three other girlfriends for a book club dinner and had no problems discussing our books as despite the restaurant being fairly full, the acoustics didn't rebound. I will definitely be back! Photos of dessert posted, special creations from the award winning dessert chef! More...
Really original and tasty brunch in a fun location.
Brunch was great.The only issue was we were not told there was a Seating time limit. Thus it was a shock when we were told a seating time limit existed and we had to leave. Knowing we could have timed meal accordingly. It felt like we were rushed out. We weee just sitting back time joy our coffee and chat when we were told a time limit existed. More...
Yellow Door is my favourite place to celebrate or meet, particularly with the people I like most, and particularly over Brunch. The staff are cheerful and the food is always great and always original. See you soon! More...
The Pear Gateau was sublime, the duck cassoulet was delish, and the staff were top notch.
Our server was incredible. Best service I’ve had in a long time!!!
Lunch with a friend I haven’t seen for some time so it was catch-up time too. Service was attentive without being intrusive. The food was excellent. We shared a Tiramisu for dessert. It was without a doubt the very best either of us had ever had...kudos to the pastry chef for the creation! Delicious! More...
Staff was very friendly. The service was excellent. The food was presented well and tasted delicious. Ambience was very relaxing.
Food was on point and service was impeccable! Will visit again!
Really good food and service! I loved the design and decoration, I’ve never seen such great taste for a restaurant in Calgary!
Absolutely love this place! The staff are awesome, they remember us and it's like walking into home. Great place for lunch meetings, its quieter, they give you space to chat and don't hover.
We visited for the Tonight for Tomorrow event. It was great! The food was delicious and the drinks were great. Our server had left in the middle of service, but the supervisor picked up where she left off seamlessly. We love the ambiance and the decor of the restaurant. Overall, it was a great night out! More...
awesome food, great service and fantastic location
Last Friday my boyfriend and I were celebrating our 2nd anniversary and were recommended Yellow Door by a friend. We spent our entire evening smiling because of how amazing our overall service was. We were talked through the menu, and given excellent advice when choosing our meals. Every worker that came to our table was so sincere and genuinely nice. And the food was EXCEPTIONAL! We are both quite picky eaters, but were left speechless after each course. Amazing staff, service, atmosphere and food. Excited to come back in the near future! More...
Fabulous meal. Extremely helpful, pleasant and courteous staff. Meal was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked. Make sure to save room for a dessert. We had driven from out of town for my birthday and we were not disappointed. A little pricey but definitely worth it. More...
We had a great time in the yellow booth. Brunch buffet was really good with unique offerings to remind us we were in a boutique hotel. Loved it completely. Enjoyed the Fargo association too More...
Good food and drinks. Good service. Enjoyed their fries. Beet gnocchi was delicious. Would definitely come here again.
Had the brunch buffet and it was lovely! Creative dishes along with the staples made it a very nice experience. The ambiance is chic and the service very nice. Definitely a go-to for brunch!
It was my birthday and as per tradition I always do the 5 course Chefs Meal. I love the element of surprise and it never disappoints
The dinner was excellent. Everything was prepared well and tasted amazing. The serving staff were very friendly and informative. Definitely the best meal I've had in a long time! More...
We have been to Yellow Door Bistro twice now for brunch and both times were wonderful! The food was delicious with a lot of variety. We would recommend it over other, more expensive brunch buffets. More...
amazing brunch menu.great service. really excellent place to sit and enjoy some great food
Great atmosphere, food and service. Will be back and will recommend to friends.
Best brunch ever. Poutine was amazing. Perfect desserts
Fantastic food, great knowledgeable staff. Been there multiple times and have always had a great experience.
Nice place. And nice food.
what stands our the most for me was the wonderful service from our server. She was very sweet and attentive. Big kudos to William as well for arranging a special dessert for our table in celebration of our event. The restaraunt was very trendy with nice decor. The food was decent. There were some nice flavourful items but others were not very warm. I think it has to do with their serving dishes. As attractive as they are they don’t seem to keep the items warm enough and the lids are heavy. Making it awkward to serve yourself and not knowing what to do with the lid when there are others right behind you and you don’t know if they want that dish or not. Flip lids/ hot plates may be typical but I find them to be more user friendly. I’m glad I went but not sure I’ll be back anytime soon. More...
What a lovely place! The food is delicious and well thought out portion sizes so you can try everything. They even had individual roasting dishes with potato wedges poutine topped with a poached egg. Loved it!
Johnny was the most amazing server; he recommended the perfect wine pairing for our meal, and even rustled up some amazing Au jus for our lamb when we found it a bit in need of flavor. The tare tare was AMAZING; best in the city. More...
Always a great experience and a delicious meal. The flatbread was flavorful with a light, crispy crust.
It was my nieces birthday. Our server went out of her way to make us feel welcomed and special.
Went for the hockey night special. Price was right, food was served quickly and was good, parking for the duration of the game was free, and the saddle dome was a pleasant 10-15 minute walk away.All in all a good experience.
Food and service was amazing! Special attention was given to celebrate my birthday which I appreciate!!! Thank you for making my birthday dinner memorable.
This is my second Brunch at The Yellow Door and it was excellent. The chocolate soufflé pancakes with molten chocolate in the middle were decadent beyond belief! My friend had the vegetarian omelette which was also very good. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. More...
Went here for lunch with a few friends and it was absolutely delicious! The portions were a good size and the price was great for the amount of food and quality of the dishes. The service was excellent as well; we had a very friendly server who helped us choose between several dishes we were eyeing. My only critique would be a few more options on the menu but all three of us loved our food. The coffee afterwards was delicious as well. I couldn't believe there weren't more people there but it was 1pm on a Tuesday. I hope they stick around because it was an excellent place for lunch! More...
I was very impressed with everything about this restaurant for Sunday brunch. The decor, seating, food and we had a very personable server were all excellent. I would recommend and return myself! More...
So good! The food, the ambiance and the service were all five-star.
Fantastic atmosphere. Very accommodating (I have a 6 month old that accompanied us). The service was impeccable. The food was second to none, and the entire experience was perfect! It’s what we’ve come to expect, however their efforts and execution are always exemplary. Well done everyone! More...
The food was very, the server was excellent, overall very good and will return and would recommend
A friend and I had dinner here before the Flames game. They were every attentive to the time and made sure we were out the door in time to make it to the game. We were busy visiting and catching up, so it was nice someone was paying attention. Lol!The food was delicious. We had the steak tartare to start and it was AMAZING! I had the salmon as my main and it was cooked to perfection! They do offer a flames game special...but I was happy with my order! I will be back! More...
Great value. Loved the decor. Very excited to enjoy happy hour drink specials on a Friday.
I would suggest that servers pay attention more to the customers as there maybe a need. My co-worker that I took to there for lunch, part of her chicken in the burger was not fully cooked. i tried to wave the server down but no one was really paying attention. My co-worker just took out the uncooked portion of the chicken. Was her first time there and it did not make a good impression on her. She lives and works in Calgary, but i was visiting. The breakfast was great thus the reason i decided to taker here there for lunch.My salad and soup was overall delicious. Thank you More...
None of my friends had previously been to Yellow Door so I thought that the YYC Food and Drink Experience would be a great intro for them. We all really enjoyed the food, the wine pairings went well with our meals and we were very happy with the portions and service. Each of my friends and myself all look forward to going back again soon. More...
This is one of my favorite brunch places in Calgary . Unfortunately this time around my experience wasn’t as good as it has been in the past . Food was cold, we also ordered from menu, it took forever to come. We had to physically find a server on the floor to come over after we had sat down for a good 15-20 mins. Although service and food weren’t the best this time around I still loved our server . She noticed the frustration and knew we were celebrating bdays so she brought us two glasses of mimosa and was very attentive after. The 4 stars is because of her. More...
We had a great meal at Yellow Door. Particularly pleased about half price wine! I noted that there was a Birthday with our party and they really applied a nice touch to the extras - our group raves about the experience. We will definitely be back!
I love going to Yellow Door while in Calgary. It is our go to place for Breakfast/ Brunch. They do a great job catering to our food allergies too!
Their staff maintains high level of service. Brunch was quite delicious and filling. We go there for birthdays.
We had a set menu dinner through the YYC Food and Drink Festival, and the menu they presented for the event was spectacular and at an unbelievable price. Would highly recommend!
Excellent food with elevated service, we had a great evening! This is one of our favorites in Calgary.
The only issue was our waitress didn’t tell us about the YYC dine out Calgary event. My husband had the Antipasta flatbread and really enjoyed it. I had the Confit Chicken Pappardelle, which had an overpowering pesto sauce. Would just ask for less Pesto. Ext time. More...
The hockey pre-game meal special really hit the spot ... good food, good value.
Wonderful food, wonderful service, wonderful experience.
I have enjoyed both brunch and dinner at The Yellow Door. The brunch is incredible. I found the dinner menu to be a bit limited but the food was very good. The service was also very good. The restaurant was very busy so would recommend making reservations. More...
We have been to yellow door a couple of times lately and I have to say the food is getting better.The quality of presentation, flavours, and creativity are not typical of a hotel restaurant. We started with the beef tartar which was really really good. I had the seared scallop and prawn risotto which was also very nicely done. Friday nights are an especially good night to reserve as their entire wine list by the bottle is half price. You can get a really decent bottle for about $30 with the discount. I think this one of Calgary's hidden food gems. The music isn't too loud so you can still have a conversation without yelling across the table which is more typical than not in Calgary restaurants. More...
I am gluten free, dairy free and lactose free. Their Valentine's menu was amazing! One of the best food experience I have had in my life. They were eager to meet my restrictions and provide me with delicious 4 course meal. Wasn't my first visit and definitely not the last one. More...
Really enjoyed the Express luncheon. Great value and superb, unique flavoring. Would just like slightly larger portion. Salad particularly small.
Enjoyed the meal, but thought the shroom ramen was on the salty side. Would've liked a more sizeable salad. Strange having a napkin on the plate under the dessert - not sure what that's about. Could've used a bit more on the service side. More...
Food, service and value.......awesome. Would highly recommend.
We had the best time celebrating our anniversary. The hot buffet breakfast was a hit!
I loved that the Sunday brunch included traditional items, but also some unique recipes that were fun to try and really made the brunch special. There was a good variety from which to choose and everything I ate was delicious. More...
It was my birthday. This was our first time at Yellow Door and we enjoyed ourselves. My only critique is that some dishes did not get replenished for quite a while. The charcuterie board was half empty for 2 hours. That made me sad. I could’ve asked but should I have to? Staff was all around it. More...
Restaurant was quite for a early 6:30pm Saturday night. It was also very cold outside ! The 3 of us really enjoyed sharing the fries as an appetizer. Super tastey cheesey fries. Mains were ribeye, papperdelle pasta, tartare and crab salad. .tartare was a huge portion and was plenty for a main the salad was taken home for later. Ribeye was cooked to order and reasonably tasty. A little chewy for my liking. Pasta dish was a hit and decent portion for my wife with a little left for lunch. Over all service was great from Chad, meal was very good. A decent choice.... for reasonable meal. More...
Sunday buffet is good. A little expensive but my kids enjoyed
This is by far my favourite brunch spot! I love how special each of the dishes are, and how reliable the experience is! The staff is always delightful and accommodating, and I never leave disappointed!
The service was excellent and the food was so good. It was our first time there and we will definitely be back.
One of Calgary’s best and most consistent restaurants. Food and service were excellent. Try the Cobb salad and French onion soup!
We had the tasting menu with wine parings. Everything was delicious, but as a whole it lacked a little creativity. Four of the five courses (everything but dessert) were red meat centred. The tartare was amazing, and all the others were good, it just felt like the reliance on meat kind of overwhelmed the experience. It would have been more interesting to mix in a more varied flavour profile. Still excellent value for money - the portions were huge, and the quality fantastic. I would recommend it. More...
I found the background music too loud. It can be difficult to hear people sitting across the table.
Clients arrived from out of town and were looking for a unique Calgary experience...Yellow Door!!William, Scott, and the entire crew created a lasting impression for our clients and ourselves. The service was exceptional, everyone commented that the food was outstanding, and everyone left with smiles on their faces. I really felt the Yellow Door crew went above and beyond knowing we were entertaining clients from Mexico and Miami - pulled out all the stops to ensure it was a memorable evening. Thank you! More...
10/10 will definitely be back! The twice cooked fries are a must have. The pear shaped cake was amazing. I adore their weekend brunches. I could honestly eat here everyday. More...
We were there on a Tuesday for my girlfriend's birthday. Service was great, staff was very helpful and accommodating. The food was all delicious, I appreciated how it wasn't needlessly complicated and dressed up (some restaurants try way to hard, instead of just making good food).
I came her intending to try their hot chocolate for the festival and ended up having lunch with a friend. Their lunch Express menu changes everyday and I would recommend trying it since you get a soup, an entree and a dessert for $20! Today's special consisted of cheese broccoli soup, turkey sandwich with a mixed greens salad, and a yummy trifle. Their hot chocolate was green matcha with housemate meringue flowers to top it off, couldn't take the alcohol version to go, but it's still delicious and pretty to look at. Recommend it! More...
My guests are still raving about Yellow Door.
Easily the best brunch Calgary has to offer. Very gourmet, with atypical offerings. However, there are the staples there too.
The food is absolutely incredible and the service was perfect as well!!
The chef’s choice five course meal is a must try!
Family birthday brunch. Absolutely wonderful buffet with a great selection of well prepared and tasty food. Service was fabulous and the environment was excellent. Well done!
Tasting menu was fantastic. Very reasonable price considering the quality of the dishes. All 5 dishes were amazing.
Delicious Brunch but the selection was slightly limited as we arrived at 1:45 and brunch ended at 2:30 so many things had run out and were no longer refilled.The things we did have were above and beyond delicious though! Not a typical buffet at all. The individual risoto with the poached egg was my favorite. More...
Came In For Brunch. I Was Greeted With A Warm, Polite Welcome Upon Walking Into The Restauran By The Lovely Hostess. I Was Seated In A Fashionable Matter; Oh So Quickly I May Add Considering How Busy The Restaurant Was. The Waitress Who Looked After Me Was Exceptional.
Simply, The Food Was Great. The General Manager Came By My Table And Asked How Everything Was Going And I Couldn't Be More Pleased With How Smoothly Everything Was Operating.
Great Experience. Highly Recommend. More...
I was at the Yellow Door for a business dinner. The food and service were fantastic. I definitely recommend the steak tartare. Both of us enjoyed the decor of the restaurant and a one point, decided to go sit in one of the pod / Alice in Wonderland chairs at an empty table just to try it out. “Futuristic french farmhouse” is the term we decided described the decor. I would definitely go back next time I’m in Calgary. More...
Went for brunch - ordered off the menu and it was great! Great service too. Buffet looked amazing - so many options. Can't wait to go back and try it!
The buffet does it have enough choices but overall it is okay. Nice staff but they can be disorganized at times
Friendly and prompt service. Was here for brunch which was terrific (traditional breakfast, and seasonal pancakes that was eggnog pancakes today). Very nice atmosphere. Accepts reservations which is great. Recommend heartily! More...
Brunch buffet was fantastic, with enough stuff for my one year old to eat. Accommodating to children.
Came here for the first time and had brunch! What an amazing restaurant. We were seated at a lovely table by the window and there was a small welcome drink awaiting us, a great tasting little smoothie. Instead of the buffet (which looked awesome) , we ordered a la carte; I had the chef inspired pancakes which were so delicious, also treated myself to a Mimosa which was great as well, you can tell right away it was made with a very nice Prosecco Service was fantastic, can’t wait to come back and try dinner here next time! More...
Started off with a great server which unfortunately ended when her shift ended. The replacement server ignored our table and we had to ask multiple times simply to have coffee refilled. It was brunch and does anyone really need to ask for coffee refills Attentiveness is part of great service. Highly disappointing. Our first server Morgan was fantastic and we would gladly return for her. More...
New Year’s eve dinner. Fabulous evening. Staff every attentive and knowledgeable. Dinner was Devine. Time between courses exceptional. Definitely will be back.
Good food. Just too much liqueur on the dessert that it overpowered the flavour. Other than that it was good.
New Years Eve set menu of 5 courses. All very well prepared and presented.
We were happy just to find a reservation for dinner on Xmas Day but doubly pleased it was at the Yellow Door Bistro. Buffet meals are not my first choice but an understandable option for this holiday service.Love the avant garde atmosphere and appreciate the friendly attentive staff.Already thinking about our next visit to Calgary so we can enjoy the Yellow Door Bistro's full menu and full table service.The only negative relates to the buffet itself. Although food is brilliantly prepared and flavorful the use of the bar for service is not convenient and I observe it was difficult to keep food evenly warmed. May want to reconsider this feature. More...
We came for the brunch, which wasn't available that day, but the lunch menu did not disappoint. Definitely grab dessert, happy hour deal is fantastic, and the whole restaurant was beautiful. I will definitely be back to try that coveted brunch. More...
The pre Flames game combo meal was an added bonus to the amazing decor.
Miguel Angel Nacenta
Wonderful food, very efficient service!
Went last night for dinner. The service was quick and attentive. The five of us ordered different dishes; gnocchi, pappardelle pasta, Cobb salad, salmon and steak. Every dish was delicious and presented really well. We also ordered 4 desserts; tiramisu, lemon tart, creme brulee and pear gateau. The desserts looked so gorgeous we didn’t want to eat them! They tasted as amazing as they looked. Highly recommend this place and will be back. More...
Excellent meal, great service and beautiful atmosphere
Stopped by on a snowy weekend morning for brunch, then went ahead and ate excessive amounts of delicious standard buffet with an added level of much higher quality and class. On top of that my server was able to throw together a delicious mocha and fresh fruit juice, along with a little fruit smoothie shot and it was all included. More...
Always great food and fantastic service
Absolutely delicious, very friendly and welcoming... Everyone was great
Went for Christmas Breakfast. I didn’t know the only option was a breakfast buffet. After the server told me about the buffet only option I looked online the Buffet is $15. When the bill came the buffet was $35.00 per person and we had one helping of the buffet as I am not a fan of buffet style, toast and one coffee and our bill was $73.00 for two people. Better communication on the breakfast option would have been nice to know. More...
We went to Yellow Door for the Christmas brunch buffet and it was delicious! The spread of food included lots of regulars like bacon, sausage, hashbrowns and eggs benedict but there were also some twists on favourites like the scrambled eggs with yogurt. We all loved the sliders and enjoyed the selection of desserts. Definitely beat cooking breakfast on Christmas morning! More...
My Son and I decided to have brunch here on Christmas Day, I had booked through Open Table for 1pm and ended up getting a call from the bistro explaining the website was wrong on times and in fact the buffet was closing at 1pm. A table was still available so decided to still go......was not disappointed. The food was excellent, in fact the buffet ended up being extended and frequently replenished with wonderful food. Service was excellent and any questions I had were answered politely and professionally.Would recommend if looking for good food. More...
Outstanding food. Definitely will recommend to others and be back!
For what was in the brunch, it was all very good. Could use a bit more variety though.
Yellow Door hit it out of the park, again. We are always impressed by the quality of the food, and the service. Thanks so much, and we will be back soon!
amazing meal and service, can’t wait to go back
Our favorite brunch spot in Calgary!
Great brunch! High quality food. Wished I could eat more.
Our server, John was just excellent. Our nephew was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes two weeks ago and John smartly suggested an accompaniment of grilled vegetables instead of the confit potatoes that were originally on the menu. John was attentive and treated us with great care. More...
I was even more impressed by the Yellow Door Bistro than I had imagined I would be. My son and I went for Brunch on Saturday and we absolutely loved the decor, the ambience and the variety of the dishes in the Hot Brunch Buffet. We were greeted and seated promptly by the friendly host. We were then greeted by our server, Megan, who was friendly and attentive. When I indicated that I was lactose intolerant, she offered to take us over to the buffet to show us what dishes were dairy free as soon as she double checked with the chef. There were plenty of options that I could choose from. The dishes were all excellent. We will definitely be returning to the Yellow Door Bistro. More...
Amazing service from our server, great brunch buffet selection. Cute decor!
It was a pleasant surprise coming to this place for a Sunday brunch. We decided to try the buffet as it had a good variety of food and it looked very tasty. Brunch is $24 which isn't very expensive considering that one of the guys from our group decided to order from the menu and he ended up paying $21 for his omelette and juice ($17 + $4).Brunch included scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, baked squared potatoes, eggs Benedict among other things including some cheeses and cured meats on a Charcuterie board. Additionally, there were pastries including croissants, muffins, cookies and tiramisu :-)Our server Daryl was super friendly and was constantly checking on us in case we needed anything. More...
We had an amazing experience. Out server went above and beyond with service.
The restaurant decor is really unique, not a lot like it around. Their cocktail menu is extensive and very diverse. The menu itself is short and to the point allowing for easier decisions. The chefs tasting menus are excellent value. There are a few large tables that are great for bigger groups and some smaller tables around the edge, including some couches that are great for cocktails. Overall the noise level was louder than I expected, but not so loud that you couldn't carry on a conversation with the people at the table. Service was great and I would definitely go there again. More...
Went for our annual cookie exchange brunch. Great staff, easy booking on opentable and had a fantastic time! So great noone even thought of pulling out a phone (even to commemorate the fact we were sitting in the same yellow booth as Billy Bob in FARGO). We will definitely be back!
Great selection and high quality of food at brunch buffet.Great customer service and free parking.Host us great on the phone and greeting at the door. Super polite and caring.
I had a lovely birthday dinner. Service was excellent. I will definitely recommend to friends and family!
We had stayed overnight at Hotel Arts and wanted somewhere for breakfast. We had received an email inviting us to book for brunch, which I did. Really enjoyed the restaurant, the service, the food - really an enjoyable place for brunch. We would definitely come back here again for both the hotel and the restaurants. More...
Great food, great service! Thanks a lot to Darryl- you made our stay at Hotel Arts. Some feedback I have is that as a modern trendsetting restaurant, it's time to get onboard the zero-waste bandwagon. You are already doing a fantastic job by buying glass jam and honey jars, and re-using them for ketchup and hot sauce. Also, kudos for using loose leaf teas instead of tea bags. Cloth napkins would be a great alternative to paper napkins, and offering sugar and sweeteners on request, instead of packets on the table. More...
Food was excellent and well worth it. Not the cheapest for my purse but good for a treat. Great service
From the moment we arrived and was greeted by Sebastian, we knew we made the right choice. Vibrant and lively, exceptional service and attention to detail. Our server was relaxed and friendly and checked on us throughout. The food was superb, we enjoyed three courses and all were expertly prepared and presented. It was also a treat to have the sous chef visit with us to ensure everything was perfect. Really made for a wonderful evening and we will return to Yellow Door many times more. If you have not tried it, you must... It really is one of Calgary's best! More...
Great gluten free options!
The chorizo hash was quite amazing!
Always fantastic food and service. Try their express lunch, 3 course lunch for $20 and it's quick.
Love going for the Brunch Buffet! Lots of options
Great food, awesome atmosphere! Lovely place to catch up with your friends at the end of the week!
Steve St. Onge
Great for breakfast, and they have some nice Dr. evil chairs you can sit in... Cat not provided
Best kept brunch secret (I recommend for brunch with friends)! A wonderful setting, atmosphere, food and great staff. If you are gluten free or have dietary restrictions they are top notch to accommodate.
Awesome place! The service and food are great, and the place itself if beautiful, definitely recommend it!
The pork chorizo hash bowl was one of the best breakfast meals I have ever had. Perfect balance of spice, spinach, tomato, and poached eggs. Just awesome!
Wonderful brunch. Great ambiance and service.
Thank you lunch
Everything was almost perfect except we were the last customer in the restaurant and we had that hurry feeling to get de f”@& out ! Kinda sad but except that little detail everything was really exceptionnel , food , 5 services do I strongly recommend with bottle a wine is excellent ! More...
We were pleasantly surprised with the brunch served at Yellow Door. Not our first time at this restaurant but yes for brunch. Food was fresh, well prepared, and very yummy. The choice of items is excellent and everyone at the table had their own favourites. The Yorkshire pudding egg benedict surpassed any expectations for egg benedicts. Service was excellent and we felt that it was very good value for the quality and variety offered. Definitely coming back. More...
This was a fabulous experience. Our waiter (sorry I forgot your name) was on top of everything. He had great suggestions and remembered I was gluten free, he even brought out bread that was gluten free, without even being asked. He was attentive and we never had to look around to get his attention. The entire experience was great and I have already mentioned to everyone I have spoken with to go and experience this wonderful dining experience. More...
My second time to have weekend brunch. Great choice for me. Love the atmosphere here. The server is very friendly. Food is also tasty.
Fantastic meal. Our server John was knowledgeable about the bar and food menu. Left us alone to chat but readily available when needed. Our guests remarked on how beautifully the food was presented. Great meal as usual. Will be back. More...
Good...took a little while for our lunch to come out though.
THE FOOD AND SERVICE IS AMAZING!
Neat little restaurant with a cool vibe. We went before a Flames game and they had a prescribed menu which was great. The only issue is they undercooked one persons food and seemed to not care or use the Flames game excuse to not get it right. Overall they kinda made it up but again one party's food was holding the rest of us up. Will likely try again More...
The value for the brunch was awesome! I would say for the price it’s the best brunch I’ve had in Calgary. And the coffee was really good, very hot and tasted so yummy! We hung around for about 1hr45 for our “Mom and Dad Date day” away from the kiddos, it was such a relaxing treat! The server never rushed us and we did make sure there wasn’t every anyone waiting for a table (we did a late brunch at 12pm so things were winding down). More...
Our server couldn't have been more attentive and accommodating. We had a wonderful meal with great ambiance.
All you can eat option. Delicious brunch. We come often.
Some interesting menus items, a bit over priced.
Pleasant attentive service. Good food.
We had dinner on Valentine’s day here. Duck steak was amazing!
Good quality food and our waitress was hilarious.
Thanks for making My Mom’s Birthday Wonderful! She rarely likes to eat out but was very surprise she ate all that was on her plate. She enjoyed how cozy the place was and how caring the servers are. Again, Much Thanks! More...
My husband and I got the two pasta dishes on the menu and they were both really good. Our fave though was the gnocchi! Our server was very informative, attentive easy to talk to. Yellow Door is probably the best restaurant from the Hotel Arts group. We will return! More...
Went for Sunday brunch. The only slight disappointment was that the hash browns were over-fried to the point of being rock hard. Otherwise, everything was perfect. Would go again. More...
Great spot where you can make brunch reservations. Food was delicious, orders were correct and my eggs were perfectly cooked
Excellent service and delicious food
Excellent food, excellent sitting . Romantic place, and staff was good
We came for brunch to celebrate my friends birthday and we had a great experience. We ordered the eggs Benedict and it was delicious. Will be coming back to try the buffet brunch next time as it looked amazing. Service and ambiance was fantastic. More...
Excellent food, service was very good. Would go back again.
Yellow Door is one of my go-to favourites--great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I've been here for all occasions--on a date, girls night etc. Food is always amazing. Service is always great. Definitely recommend this. More...
Personally I love their brunch. I first went there in August and I have been going every month since. I have also been talking about it to everyone I know because the food is so good but my last experience was not great. We went on Saturday to celebrate my husband’s birthday, he decided he was gonna do the full buffet and I ordered from the menu. We had our 2-year old with us, he really doesn’t eat much but I thought I would order him an over-easy egg. The server said she will get it right away but the egg actually took a while. During that time, the manager came by and said “did they let you know that the little one can have anything from the buffet?” And I said “no, we did not know but thank you”. We got up and got him some fruit and a piece of bread (we were still waiting for the egg). It would have been nice to know that he could eat for free from the start - our server should have told us instead of letting me order the egg (that took forever) and then charging me $4.00 for it. Other than that, food was still great! More...
Everything was delicious. They also validate parking so you can park underground. We had a 6 month old baby and it was a pleasant experience.
Warm, inviting and absolutely delectable! I’ll go back in a heartbeat. Our serve Johnny was fantastic and full of great humour!
Good food with a great atmosphere. Good diversity of menu but the menu choices are a little short.
My husband and I went for our anniversary and it was one of the best experiences we’ve had in a long time. The food was incredible.
This was my second time here and I came back for the Pork Chorizo Hash, its amazing!The flavours are unbelievable, great for Sunday Brunch, coffee was good, service was good as well. We liked that we were not pressured to leave (unlike other breakfast places) and were able to enjoy our friends get-together. More...
I loved the decor: creative, modern accents & lighting throughout gave a fun fresh feel to classic romantic rustic decor. We arrived just before the restaurant filled up for Sunday brunch at 11am. The complimentary fruit/mint shot brought to us by our very friendly waitress was a delicious start to the meal. Sadly, our first round of food from the buffet counter (including sausage, bacon, potatoes & eggs) was all on the cold side and a bit dry. Luckily the food was changed and much fresher as the tables filled up to a packed house within the hour. The scrambled eggs and lavender moose were my top picks. Coffee service was generally good but all drinks, refills & ketchup had to ordered thru the waitresses so there was a bit of a wait at times if you wanted any liquids other than water. Overall, the food was average but the atmosphere and interior design details are more than nice enough to draw me back for coffee date with a friend. More...
So amazing and GORGEOUS food. I had no words for each bite because every single bite was phenomenal. I would give 10 stars if possible. The staff was so friendly and fun. The place was spotless and the food was to die for. If you go, get the buttermilk chicken. You'll thank me afterwards! ❤ More...
What a surprise for quality and presentation of wonderful food! Staying at a Hotel Arts and having dinner at the best restaurant in Calgary! We ordered pasta and salad and had it split between us on separate plates. Lots of food on each dish! More...
Very good brunch.
Nice plating overall & surprisingly large portions. Entrée flavours paired nicely, although they could’ve been more bold. Neat decor & accommodating service. (4/5) More...
A great place to savour great food and great conversations.

Server wasn’t very friendly. Food was just okWhile we waited at the door, the hostess came to the desk but didn’t engage with just, just grabbed something then walked away
A perfect combination of ambience and great food. Yellow Door Bistro Never disappoints!!!
Danny was an amazing server! Our three course chef choice are really yummy! Surprisingly good even to my very picky husband, the lighting is pretty dark so you got to enjoy the atmosphere. I love the reasonable price three course menu. They are also willing to change one plate for the next table to opt out the carrot cake which I find really accommodating. I love it here! More...
Breakfast buffet is fantastic and well worth the money
Excellent service. My wife and I were celebrating our 5 year anniversary and staying at the hotel. I was up early, and looking to kill some time. I was invited to drink coffee and read the newspaper, and as I was coming back later for brunch, was not charged for it. Much appreciated, the brunch was truly worth the price of admission! More...
i enjoyed my meal and hope to visit again, perhaps for dinner instead of brunch.
Very nice restaurant and food. Reasonable prices for the quality of food. Nice decor and atmosphere. Good for special occasions.
Reasonably priced tasting menu and terrific food
Great atmosphere, great service and delicious food.
