    Have to come back!

    The lamb and lobster is a delicious match with avocado and salsa. Lighter entree of seafood pot of feu soup in fish broth with melt in your mouth, fresh array of seafood is soooo good. Most satisfied with the homemade trio ice cream - especially the black cherry and cinnamon - not too sweet and not too creamy. Perfect dinner!

    Unique drinks & seafood dishes

    The restaurant is part of the group that owns Open Range & Diner Deluxe etc. and it did not disappoint in unique dishes & drinks on the menu. They actually put bits of grated truffles in their truffle lasagna (where most places infuses it with truffle oil only). Great little place - try their lillet cocktail too...not too many places in Calgary will have this :)

    Delicious Seafood and Oysters!

    This place is a favourite for us for any special occasion or just for a night out. Wednesday is bring your own wine night and free corkage! The place is small but very cozy so make sure you have reservations. The seafood is very fresh. We went there with another couple and shared the seafood platter and the candied trout jerky is delicious!

    Love Big Fish! Have been here several times for brunch (and Open Range for dinner), and the food is consistently fantastic, as is the service. Already looking forward to the next time we're back. Another great aspect to dining here is that you can order from both menus, so there's definitely something for everyone. Highly recommend!

    Incredible service and food quality was amazing! Best meal I’ve had in a long time. Had the bison short ribs with scalloped potatoes, and my partner had the ny steak and jumbo shrip special. We shared the oysters, bone marrow and frog legs and everything tasted amazing. Our server was wonderful and overall one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to with an amazing menu! Would definitely come back next time I’m in Alberta!

    My husband and I had dinner at Big Fish/Open Range last evening. This is the first time we had both eaten here and would highly recommend. The service was exceptional and the food was amazing. We would recommend starting with the mussels, Short Ribs and Arctic Char for dinner entrees. The plating and presentation of each of the dishes was exceptional and the portions sizes exceeded expectation. Very filling! We also liked that the two restaurants combined to one, offering a wider variety.

    All of our meals were fabulous. The mussels, calamari , Arctic char and fish tacos were fantastic as was the pecan pie we shared for dessert. Service was great and we 1/2 price wines was a bonus. We are already planning to go back for another ladies night on a weds again to take advantage of 1/2 price wines. Highly recommend the Big Fish.

    Chowder and Mussels were excellent. The salad with candied salmon could be improved upon. My friend was not happy with the crab sandwich...not enough crab and all toast was burnt. It was an okay meal but not exceptional.
