"Value" fine dining in Calgary-Urgent
- felix the hound Mar 4, 2009 01:30 PM
I am looking for a reasonably priced good restaurant (aren't we all?) to take 5 colleagues for dinner tonight. I am considering Divino, Tribune, Sugo and Saltlik ( although the latter's website menu does not have prices). I would have considered Catch (downstairs) but I found their new menu a bit limited when I ate there on Monday.
My impression ( after a bit of research) is that the following are above my price range for tonight : Dolce Vita, Da Guido, Osteria de Medici, River Cafe, Il Sogno, Capo, Rouge, Fleur de Sel, Centini, Teatro, Belvedere.
By the way, two of my guests consider themselves knowledgeable about italian food and one has already poo pooed Olives.
I urgently need help with this decision
Thank you for all your suggestion and information.
We ended up at Divino and had a good dinner, more or less within budget (bill before tip was a bit over $60 per person including two $55 bottles of wine ). We started with green beans for sharing , soups as first course, two pastas, one pork roast, one flat iron steak, one salmon , and one striped bass. we did not order dessert or cheese. Everyone enjoyed their meal except one diner who thought the chicken in the black pepper linguini was overdone) Service was inconsistent throughout the evening
I would go back, but plan to try Alloy before I do. And probably Tribune and Saltlik after that.
