Nothing beats a big bowl of fresh pasta. There’s a reason we call it ‘comfort food’ and it’s said that it doesn’t necessarily come from the flavor itself, but a nostalgic memory of the person who first made it for you!
From 2nd to 11th of March, we’ll be joining over 90 other restaurants around Calgary in The Big Taste Festival, bringing you 2 different set menus to sample some of our timelessly classic dishes. The Big Taste celebrates handmade food from the heart and the diverse variety available here in Calgary. Each restaurant will be serving up fixed priced menus that are guaranteed to be beyond delectable, you’ll be in foodie heaven!
Freshening up for its 30th Birthday, Cilantro will be closed from January 1, 2018 until February 2018 due to renovations in the casual and cozy restaurant. The renovations will focus mainly on updating the main floor by including new seating, tables, light fixtures and updated color scheme.
We have been awarded three Gold Awards from Culinaire Magazine in the Alberta’s Finest Drinks List Awards – Best Overall Drinks List, Most Comprehensive Wine List, and Best By The Glass List! “With well over 100 lists submitted, and 11 different categories to be evaluated, we had some very busy days this summer” says Linda Garson, the Co-Chair & Editor In Chief of Culinaire Magazine.
We have been named one of OpenTable’s 150 Best Neighbourhood Gems in Canada for 2017!
As one of the oldest restaurants along 17th Avenue, Cilantro is very excited to have been selected as one of Canada’s top neighbourhood gems. In our 29 years of business, we have always felt connected to the Calgary community and we are so thankful to all our customers and neighbours for making us a part of their lives.
Over the years, Cilantro has been given accolades for a couple key features – wine menu, outdoor patio, and customer service. We are proud to receive these press mentions and always aspire to achieve more by providing a unique venue for our customers to appreciate excellent food and wine – even after 27 years.
