Come in this thread after 6 weeks and this really saddens me. I haven't been there in many years and I assume with their main clientele getting much older it was a slow death.

My wife and I were married there 11 years ago and I had my 30th in their wine cellar. My Godfather worked there as a waiter in the 80's.

Good luck Joe, you once told me in the kitchen "Make food that is trendy and you'll be open a year, make it classic and it you'll be around forever."

40 years is a massive run.

Just so disappointed I never made it back one last time. They gave us a few very memorable dinners we will never forget.

Ugh my wife and I first date place in Sept 2001. Hits keep on coming.

Changing of the guard in Calgary for sure. With the downturn and property tax and I am sure construction it is weeding some former top places out.

The new generation is Nights and Weekends and Bar von der Fels. A bunch of great chefs in a small space.

However we’ll be going one last time to our first place. We have traveled all over since then eating so we may shed a tear into our Riesling lol.

I always found the food there unremarkable.

I thought it was quite good, but sitting near the wood oven was like sitting by a blast furnace. Too hot!

My wife and I are like you guys. We can trace our dating and married relationship through this place.

I found the food to be good and always had good service, never rushed and always attentive without being intrusive (which is key in my mind).

I think the key action plan here is we prevent OldDutch from going to anymore restaurants. He's a curse!

I thought the food was fine, just decidedly safe and average. Mind you I guess there was a time when Psy-Land-tro was exotic.
