Restaurante Review - Raw Bar - Calgary
Hi everyone! I just went to Raw Bar with my sister and a Groupon. :) It was a marvelous experience! Let's start with the food.
My sister and I both decided to get the heirloom tomatoes with goat cheese and balsamic vinegar as an appetizer. It's hard to go wrong with that combination, and this did not disappoint. We both loved it and would order it again.
For the main course, I ordered the Line Caught Salmon and my sister ordered the Mushroom Lasagna. She thought it was a very interesting take on lasagna... it had smaller noodles, lots of tiny mushrooms and was quite creamy. Mine was also delicious... the salmon was nicely seared and the seafood broth under it had lots of vegetables, mushrooms and mussles. It also came with three pieces of cheese tortellini, which were delicious. We were both very happy with the main course.
For dessert, we decided to share a fondue. The fondue was excellent! It was a small pot of chocolate with two ladies fingers, fresh marshmallows, almond cookies, shortbread and an assortment of fruits. The shortbread was my favorite... it wasn't like usual shortbread, it was quite chewy, and I love chewy cookies.
As for the restaurant itself, we quite liked it. It was done in black and red, with plenty of small lights and interesting paintings. The seats were quite comfortable and the service was good. The only complaint my sister had was that she knew the prices of some of the wine bottles, and it was about a 300 percent markup, which is a little steep. But the food prices were right! Before the Groupon, not including tip, our total was 108. After the Groupon and including the tip, we only paid around 80. All in all, it was a great time and we would definitely go again! I would highly recommend Raw Bar.
