Tried out Workshop for a business lunch and really enjoyed the food. Prices are above average, but not outrageous given the quality. Decor and atmosphere was good, but pretty noisy so difficult to have a productive meeting. Our server also bumped our water glass, spilling...More

Business lunch with a twist at Workshop inside Theatre Grand, and striving for individuality in the Calgary culinary sweepstakes. It works. Great ambience, great food, great service. Yes, we’ll be back for dinner!

Lunch was very good - service top notch, prices reasonable, choices very good off menu and food itself was very good. The setting in the old theatre is one of the best parts.

Excellent - it ain’t cheap but it isn’t unreasonable either, and you get what you pay for...4 or 5 star dining. The Salmon and Chicken dishes were outstanding - all about the sauces and meat quality. Will come back.

Went here for the first time and thought it was great. Reasonably priced lunch menu and perfect for a business lunch. Delicious food and great service. I had a reservation which was likely a good thing as it was busy.

For a new spot in downtown Calgary, Workshop was a really good (even surprisingly good find). The food is excellent. It is worth a visit. The "chef chooses the menu" night was alright...I'd recommend visiting on another night where you can order off the menu...More

We decided to just have appetizers for dinner. First and foremost, the duck confit perogies are right up there with the best appetizers we have ever had. The foie gras and onion jam were just the perfect garnish - in fact it was so nice,...More

Early in the evening, quiet and well-behaved would be fine. But, really, it is an adult restaurant.
