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.”
