The food is great and fresh. I had turkey meatloaf for lunch one day and french toast for breakfast. Both were delicious. And it is so fun to watch out the window at the runway.

Airside Bistro has become one of my go tos in Calgary to enjoy an awesome meal in a unique atmosphere. I usually order the beef dip as they do it very well with a healthy portion of beef and mouth watering au jus, and getting to watch private planes take off and land creates a unique atmosphere. This place is... More

This restaurant is hard to find. It is inside a Shell building in the back. There is a sign on the road, but no sign once you enter the paring lot. There is a large window looking out directly on the runway. Our server was happy and helpful. The menu selection was varied and the prices reasonable. I had the... More

I have to admit, the reason I come to airside bistro is not so much the food but the view.. From the wall window, you can look at the private jet landing at calgary airport and also catch a glimpse of domestic aircrafts landing.. It is quite neat! In terms of food, I would define it as average. They do... More

The food was really tasty. Both my husband and I loved the food and can't wait to go back. It seemed homemade and fresh. And the view was so fun.

Amazing food - prepared by a kitchen with some impressive judgement and excellent culinary skills. Our party ordered the full slate of the daily specials... Each and everyone of them was exceptional. The service was solid and attentive. One word of caution, though: You may have difficulty getting through the whole experience within a standard lunch hour. Good food, made... More

We had high expectations because of the great location, watch plane traffic up close but the food and service were underwhelming. The eggs benedict was very salty, the requested crispy bacon side order was very under cooked. it was not worth the 25 minute wait in an almost empty restaurant. The location will take us back there but will chose... More

My wife and I went here for lunch and were impressed. The food was made fresh and was tasty, plus the service was really good. The key selling feature for us was it backs right onto the private jet runway area of the airport and you have a clear view of both runways. If you are a plane watcher it... More

This is standard fare for the North American palate. The catering is often served on corporate flights and I always found it bland and completely average, definitely not my top pick. The sausages and eggs were rather salty in my opinion and the place really lacks character. Not returning any time soon, sorry!
