Calgary Special Dining for Valentine's Day 2022
Valentine's Day is soon approaching and if you are like me, I will take any excuse to dress up and go out for a dinner. The restaurant scene in Calgary has changed so much in the last few years, so it's a great opportunity to support our local restaurants and get out and enjoy that special romantic meal with your special someone.
If you prefer to eat in - take a look at our Valentine's Day Dine-In blog with options for take-out. and please come back and share your experience in our comments below - we would love to hear from you.
Winner of Calgary's Best award for 2020 and rated Top 100 in 2021, this Mediterranean restaurant is one of the most beautiful rooms to have dinner in the city. Plants and Crystal chandeliers sweep the ceilings never seen before in Calgary. For Valentine's Day Orchard is offering 2 seatings of a seven-course tasting menu with an Asian Mediterranean twist. If you head out to Orchard you just might run into Tyler and me at dinner.
One of our favourite upper-end dining experiences is Rouge, located in downtown Calgary just south of the Calgary Zoo across the river. Rouge is offering a tasing menu as well as a take-home meal kit. They are just finalizing the menu and we will update the blogs accordingly. Named after the original owner CP Red, Rouge was later the home of A.E. Cross.
You cannot go wrong with a good steak dinner and Modern Steak is always a great dining experience. Enjoy a four-course meal with options to choose from for each course and each course has a vegetarian option too. If you like seafood make sure to make "warm crab in a jar" your first-course choice, it is simply decadent. For the main, there are 3 steak choices, a fish option, and a mushroom risotto. AND don't forget the dessert - warm chocolate cake or apple cheesecake.
Always a personal favourite for a special night out on the town. Teatros has an amazing atmosphere with its soaring ceiling. Formerly "Bank of Nova Scotia" build which you can still see in sandstone at the entrance, the vault doors meet you at the check-in. Teatros are no strangers to fine dining the are offering two set 3-course menus offered at 5 pm, 7 pm, and 9 pm OR choose the eigh-course meal
Yellow Door Bistro
Winner of the Diners' Choice award in 2020. The Yellow Door Bistro will be serving up a five-course menu with optional wine pairings. The mains include a beef tenderloin or Saffron & Crab Risotto.
