With our cozy ambiance, and the introduction of contemporary cuisine, the perfect setting is arranged for a first date, business engagement or simply a gathering of friends.
We have coined the term “Contemporary Interactive Cuisine” as our concept at The Living Room.
We define this as an expanded twist on classic French and Italian cuisine with a distinctive Canadian touch with an emphasis on meals designed for sharing.
Our staff are always eager to introduce food and wine pairings, as exemplified with our three, four, and five course surprise tasting menus prepared exclusively for you by Executive Chef Kevin Hill and Chef de Cuisine Stuart Kirton.
Conveniently located on 17th Avenue, with complimentary parking in the rear, The Living Room is the perfect choice for your special occasion or a relaxing evening out.
For those who enjoy a late night bite to eat, our kitchen is open until midnight Friday and Saturday.
We look forward to your time with us.

Kathy Richardier, The Calgary Herald
“The Living Room offers a long list of appetizers to share, tapas-style, and a separate menu section of ‘interactive cuisine’ for 2 or more, prepped at the table… Each dish was beautifully prepared and presented, some of them delightfully surprising.”
Beth Weisberg, Fast Forward
“Fondue is absolutely perfect for sharing with friends in the comfort of The Living Room…”
John Gilchrist, My Favourite Restaurants in Calgary and Banff “…one of the best patios on 17th Avenue. The menu is well conceived. The Living Room carries on one of the better wine-by-the-glass lists in the city. It is always changing and always focused on enhancing the food.”

Louis B. Hobson, The Calgary Sun
“The Living Room has an impressive choice of appetizers from salmon sashimi, fresh oysters and peppered ahi tuna to venison carpaccio but, we’re convinced they couldn’t be any better than the spinach salad that comes with seared scallops and a generous splash of smoked bacon vinaigrette.”
