Great food, great service! I didn't love our seats - we were right by the pay station and door to the washrooms.

About the restaurant
"The culinary influence of Argentina is evident throughout the menu, with the personalized touch of tableside preparation for dishes like ceviche mixto. The extensive raw bar pays homage to the fresh, sustainable, West Coast seafood that is readily available here. Vegetarian cuisine is celebrated too – almost half of the options are vegetarian, particularly the small plates meant to share, such as the pistachio and avocado bruschetta, grilled provoleta and sourdough fugazza with Roman broccoli." – John Jackson & Connie DeSousa

I love this restaurant. The food and service are always outstanding. I have quite a few food allergies and every time I visit they create a delicious meal for me. Their attention to detail and giving me a full taste profile are appreciated. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special meal and if you have food sensitivities.

About the restaurant
Justin Leboe is a chef with an established haute pedigree, his CV including The French Laundry, Daniel and, closer to home, Accolade in Toronto. But in 2011 when he opened Model Milk, housed in a converted art deco dairy in uptown Calgary, he switched to serving up southern fried chicken, waffles and gravy, and "Sunday suppers" of BBQ ribs. On his menu, which does sharing plates and traditional mains, easy comforts sit alongside the more grown-up likes of handmade cavatelli, wagyu beef tartare and little gem lettuce with Asturian aioli. A fine modern wine list and an extensive list of cocktails encourage lingering into the early hours.

Absolutely love the history behind the National Hotel and the quaint setting of Inglewood. The ambience and the service from the minute we entered the venue was superb. We enjoyed our meal immensely and our server was so knowledgeable about the cuisine and the wine list - well done!
