Thomsons was well known for its gourmet Canadian cuisine, but this eatery in the Hyatt Regency made a bold move in 2013 by introducing what it calls “free range culinary” to its menu. It was a push towards presenting healthier sustainable food and giving its chefs free range to be creative and make additions to the menu based on what inspires them and the availability of seasonal ingredients.

This light rustic fine dining fare keeps the kitchen on its toes and keeps customers coming back for pleasant surprises. “Committed to sourcing fresh, local, sustainable products, our culinary team showcases their free-range creativity by influencing menu updates every week,” says Thomsons' manager Amrut Misra. “Since last year, we have changed the menu 40 times. Every couple of weeks we change the menu.“

With 40 chefs from 22 countries on staff, there is a lot of culinary inspiration to go around. “It is very diverse in the creativity and how they bring their experience together,” says Amrut of his culinary colleagues. “Every chef that comes here has a passion for preparing the food.” Seated at the half-moon bar adjacent to the restaurant’s open kitchen, patrons can get a good look at these chefs in action. Seating 152, the expansive dining room features brick-and-sandstone walls, numerous chandeliers and large ranching photos. The full menu is also available in the adjacent Sandstone Lounge.

The Sunday buffet brunch at Thomson's has always been a family favorite but is now exceptional. Servers, managers, & kitchen staff all exhibit a strong service mentality. No request is too imposing. The quality of food is consistently high. The assortment ever changing. Arrive after noon, grab a table on the patio and enjoy a mimosa or 2 or 3. Free indoor parking's included with validation before you leave. I believe this to now be the best Sunday buffet brunch in the Calgary Banff corridor.

Now that the original restaurant area is closed, all dining is in the lounge. We, and everyone else that arrived with a reservation, were told to "grab a table over there" when greeted at the door. No one was taken over to a table. Thomson's is trying to do higher end cuisine in a bar setting which doesn't work. It was noisy and the tables were not comfortable to sit at. Our server was friendly and more professional than the person "seating" us. Food was fairly good, but already getting cold by the time it arrived. Will not be going back given the current atmosphere and would not recommend to friends.

With the restaurant being renovated, the service area is temporarily placed in the open area. With that consideration, the staff has done a great job of providing exemplary service and quality meals. One suggestion is to provide clear signs on doors for access to the facility. With some of the doors locked, some of our party believed the restaurant to be closed. I look forward to seeing the newly renovated restaurant. Thank you.
