The reservation process for online is a great idea. But I was offended to get an email response telling me that they would not guarantee a small table in the bar area instead of a tall table. It was a very negative response and I wanted to cancel the reservation. A tall table would have been inappropriate for this specific occasion. I was offended because I have seen a table with reservation on it so many times. It was a request for a short table in the bar would have been easy on a Sunday night. I simply do not like sitting at the tall tables and will not come if I think we will get one. So just let us know so we can decide to come or not. I thought that the response was 1) rude and 2) non-accommodating, 3) in considerate.

It has been several years since the last opportunity to enjoy Murrieta's, the atmosphere and menu did not disappoint. The mixed seafood and pasta was wonderful. Also enjoyed sharing the lamb meatball and mussel appetizers.

We went there before a concert and enjoyed the piano player in the lounge. The service was a little slow when we got there and we waited a bit for our first drinks. The server was good with great recommendations, The broth on the mussels was a little sweet, but the ahi tuna taco were very delicious. We had the scallop and fettuccini one regular and one with gluten free pasta, loved it! The chicken dinner was a little under cooked but very tasty and the halibut dish was also good, a little mild for my tastebuds. We were there for 1.5 hours and were unable to fit in time for a dessert. All in all I recommend Murrietas

We were completely disappointed with the food. We ordered the romaine salad with light dressing, and it came just drenched...parts were inedible. I ordered the roast chicken, which was completely tasteless. My husband ordered the spaghetti with lamb meatballs, and did not care for the pasta. We did not have time to send anything back, as we were going to a performance at the Jack Singer. We had indicated that we had to leave by 7:00, but we still had to chase down our waitress, and we were late leaving. Would not return here for dinner.

Our server was very knowledgeable regarding both the food and wine. We had arctic char, shrimp and sirloin dishes and all were excellent. The atmosphere is a nice balance between formal and casual. We look forward to returning.

Our server, Cynthia, was excellent. There when we needed her, but gave us our space. Food was fantastic and loved the atmosphere. Murrietas in Calgary and in Canmore are two of our favourites.

Our friendly and efficient hosts and servers were very attentive to our questions and allergy concerns, and even found a Tempernillo for my wife. While I can only speak for what I ate (mushroom soup, seafood risotto and chocolate layer cake) all were first rate. I had been on a bit of a bad run with risotto dishes lately (at other restaurants, not Murietta's) and you have restored my faith. Everything I tasted was perfect. Thank you for an excellent evening.

Make mine mussels: A Calgary seafood standard

Make mine mussels: A Calgary seafood standard

This downtown stand-by (known for its killer wine list) sits in a gorgeous historical building and gives diners a great view of bustling foot traffic on Stephen Avenue Walk. If you’re in the mood for mussels, try the lip-smacking cioppino, a tomato-based fish stew packed with mussels, scallops, whatever fish is in season, prawns and some angel hair pasta.
