    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!

    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.

    Only reason for three stars on atmosphere is that there was a large party - 5 adults and four under 3. Kids were great but adults particularly one was obnoxiously loud. I think placing us in another spot may have alleviate the “noise” a bit. However we also did not ask

    I enjoyed dining here. Seafood is really quite decent, staff were helpful enough. About the only thing I would suggest is - it’s spring! Get some light in there, open up those drapes and lay off the black colour a bit. :). Thanks for the tasty meal!

    Have been going to Big Fish for many years whenever I am in Calgary because of the interesting and tasty food. Of equal importance is the welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. I have never been disappointed. Definitely one of the gems of the Calgary culinary scene.
