We went to listen to live music and had dinner in advance. The old was really fabulous, it's an artistic place and the prices were high but everything tasted fantastic. We'll be back for wine & more music!

We had a team dinner at Piq Niq Cafe. Everyone was happy with the service, ambiance and entree's. Duck Confit was stellar. Prices were very reasonable for food of this quality. Highly recommended.

I spent 3 weeks in Calgary for business, dining out every night and this is the best I could find. Friendly staff (and owner), good food, reasonable price and enjoyable accompanying music. What more can you ask for?

Service was friendly, helpful, and honest. Had the lamb shank. Was very good. Referred to downstairs club, small, intimate, good seating. Latin Jazz Fusion Group that night was very good. All around a great evening. High prices were expected.

Never been disappointed. Great space, and after dinner there is a fabulous little jazz club connected, called Beat Niq

We stumbled upon Piq Niq one evening and we were lucky enough that they were able to fit us in. We enjoyed superb food and service. We revelled in the live jazz offering downstairs and it was a really treat to be introduced to some...More

This little restaurant is always a great option, especially with the Beat Niq jazz club below. It makes for an excellent night! The service was fantastic. Attentive, yet not obtrusive, without arrogance, which unfortunately is common at so many calgary restaurants. I had the risotto...More

I ate here once before and was very unimpressed. The restaurant was nice enough inside, but the food was just acceptable and pricy and the service was pretty poor. Then I noticed a Livingsocial deal for it and decided I would give them a chance...More
