Grant and Dorothy Dawson Review Calgary Alberta Restaurants


 Catch of the Day:  Our most recent restaurant finds 

Best Western Premier Calgary Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre (formerly Coast Plaza Hotel)       As with all banquet sites, this review  comes with the reminder that the food served is dependent on the generosity of your host.   

Las Canarias    This is a new experience for us as we deliver a split review over different parts of the menu.

Poké Luna     Poké (Hawaiian, pronounced poke-ay, referring to something "cut up”). 

 Appetizers:  Some interesting tidbits from the Calgary food scene 

Bye, Bye

Orchid Room, one of our downtown favourites, has disappeared. We’re sad to see it go.

Avenue Deli

We note it is now closed and has been sold. We’ll keep you informed with new on any developments.

Oh, My!

The Dove’s Nest, a fine place for lunch or high tea in the southwest has closed. Thanks for all the good food over the years!

 Main Courses:  Restaurants recently updated

Shiraz Persian Cuisine      Side Street Pub & Grill     Pizza Hut     The Nash     Nick’s Steakhouse and Pizza


When the meal is finished, you may wonder exactly how restaurants are scored and other trivia surrounding this site.  For more information click here.


If your meal company is boring, here are some of our favourite websites you may want to explore while pretending to look for the weather forecast on your phone:

Grant is completely bland and can be largely ignored, but he searches out spots like Knox United Church, Calgary and  Macworld. Though usually he uses the internet for World of Warcraft. His realm is Lightninghoof if you ever visit Azeroth.

Dorothy holds the artistic portfolio and tends toward sites such as Artbeads and Fire Mountain Gems and Beads.

Right now we are both watching for changes in medical care in Alberta through Friends of Medicare and other global events through The Economist.

If the evening is really a disaster, go off the the washroom and look up some House of Dawson Media Links.
