What do people think of Blink in Calgary?

I was just wondering if anyone had been to Blink in Calgary and what they thought about it. I am planning on going myself and was wondering what people had to say about it.

  1. I've never had a bad meal at Blink. Excellent service, excellent food (and at reasonable prices)... Menu is not expansive, but the items they do are solid.

    1. +1 for excellent food and service. I've been to Blink a few times now and I'd go back the next time we planned dinner out if there weren't so many other places I wanted to try.

      1. Was there once, last year just before xmas, and it was great. Had been at Teatro the evening before, so it had to compare to that, but held up quite strongly actually. I'd say I will go back next time in Calgary, but since I usually only get there for about 3 dinners a maplesugar says, lots of other places I need to try.

        1. i was there in may for their fixed menu at lunch - excellent!!! i like the reno too, much more sophisticated than before, nice and simple.

          i would love to try their regular menu, it looks great, but i thought it was pretty expensive, most entrees at or above $30 - i've had a few too many unpaid vacation days the last few months to splurge very often these days.

          their fixed menu is also available at dinner but only until 6:30

            I hear you about their regular menu..I was there before 6:30pm, and the girlfriends I was with ordered from the fixed menu and ended up with a tab of $45-50 for dinner, I paid for 3 courses and a soda, $85 after tip & tax. A bit of a splurge for sure but all three courses were knock outs.

          2. yep, i've eaten there twice, and both times it was excellent. I really like the decor of the space, the service was great and attentive and the food was very good. IMO, the appetizers outshine the mains, but the mains are top notch...

            Also, they've got one of the better selections for appys if your dining partner happens to be vegetarian.

              All good comments. I was just curious as to what people thought about it because whenever people list off their top Calgary restaurants I never hear Blink mentioned. Well as my budget is tight also, next time an occasion comes up that gives me an excuse to celebrate, I hope to try Blink!

              Thanks guys

                That's a good point. I wouldn't name Blink as my top couple of favourites but I have nothing negative to say about it at all. In fact, it's a solid standby for when guests come from out of town. I guess it's not flashy but it's satisfying.
