Great way to celebrate a birthday with friends
My wonderful friends took me out to Ruby Watchco for my 60th birthday and it was a blast. Although it seemed like we were the oldest people in the place it made us feel like we were 30 again. The food was amazing. The crispy prosciutto and arugula salad was fresh and delicious. I am not a fan of salad but this one made my taste buds sing with the taste of the grapefruit, herbed goat cheese almonds and just the right amount of lemon herb vinaigrette. The trout with black pepper sauce was melt in your mouth and the fingerling potatoes with smoked salmon was a taste I never would have put together but worked beautifully. We ordered sweetbreads, which I had never had before and as our knowledgeable and adorable waiter Anthony said, “If you are going to try them, you should try them here.” They were delicious. Everything is served family style so you could have as much or as little as you like. Finally, the chocolate bread pudding with the coffee butter was a delicious way to end the evening. The waiters are wonderful and Lynn Crawford was happily helping in the front of the house and came to talk to us and even took a picture with me when she heard it was my birthday. One caveat, I would check the website to see the weekly menus to make sure that you like what was available that evening because there are no choices.
Thanks for letting us into your wonderful birthday celebration. We wish you many more wonderful years. Ruby Watchco has a lot of devoted fans because of its service and down-to-earth warmth.
Muse of Spur of the Moment
Our 36th anniversary and we decided at the last minute to celebrate at Muse Restaurant and Lounge in Calgary. We had the 5-course chef\’s menu with two specific requests, both incorporated beautifully. Each course was a wonderful mix of tastes, textures and visual presentation. Steven, an owner and our maître d\’ for the evening, walked us through the details of each course and very kindly offered us an after-dinner drink in celebration of our anniversary – 36 is pretty impressive – but we reluctantly declined. We\’d had more than enough wine for the evening. As well as the food, we loved the unique design of Muse. Definitely on our list of restaurants worthy of a return visit.
Response: Hi MG — We wish you many, many more happy years together. So great of you to fill us in on your special night and how Muse made it all possible. Thank you!
Q Haute Calgary when only the best will do
For the special evening when being the very best food beautifully prepared with the best service and wines is paramount.
We have never had anything but the best experiance every time.
Q Haute Calgary compares with the best we have experianced anywhere in the world.
Our favorite is the sampler menue with wine pairings.
Response: You\’re tempting us to make a reservation, Steve! Thank you very much for letting us know your take on Q Haute Cuisine.
Best restaurant around !
We have the shop across the way – Nesting Habits. We find it quite convenient having the mono Cliffs Inn close by. Foods is always great, Shrimp linguine and Curried/Butter Chicken are always my dishes of choose. In the summer the patio is always the place to be. When customers come into the shop, i always ask how their meal was…… never heard a complaint !!
Response: Hi Glenn, It\’s always great to have fabulous neighbours! Thanks for letting the world know about how amazing the food is at the Mono Cliffs Inn.
Mono Cliffs Inn, Mono Centre
Mono Cliffs Inn is one of the best restaurants in Canada. My family has been dining at Mono Cliffs since 2001. The first time we went there Carol asked my then 8-year-old son if he would like the chef to make him a special hamburger he replied he would have the lamb chops and it was love at first bite ever since! The food is outstanding and local fresh produce promoted. The ambience is friendly and relaxed, and Carol and Wayne always make a point of dropping by the table to say hello. The service is prompt and the wait staff cheerful and friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant…a real gem nestled in a beautiful and tranquil setting.

Raves for the Mono Cliffs Inn
The Mono Cliff Inn in Mono Centre — What can I say? My husband and I have been going to the restaurant for 23 years. I was pregnant with our first child then. My family and I have celebrated many milestones at the Mono Cliffs Inn. The service is fabulous and the food is even better that fabulous. I think is says a lot if you have been going to the same restaurant for 23 years. The owner, Carol, always remembers us and still comes to our table and asks how we are and even asks about our children. Now that is a kind person.
Response: Hi Joanne, Your words are a testament to how wonderful of an establishment Carol Hall and Wayne Biegel operate at the Mono Cliffs Inn. Thanks for sharing your story!
