The Big "O" Burger that is! I don't think I need to say much more, but of course I will. All I have to say is: look at the picture below where I'm holding the biggest "O" - you've probably ever seen (or will see) a bigger "O" on a blog! Yes, that's a challenge! I thought "O" was fantastic. We had a private room where we could have some inappropriate conversation and giggle about it. I had the lemon meringue in a perfect sized cup which left me satisfied...I know you're wondering what else this girl could be looking for after having had a big "O"...but there's always room for dessert (wink!).
Excellent job on the blog Nicole! I love that we throw out an idea and you made it happen! Thanks!
O Restaurant and Lounge was... OOOOOOOOO my goodness the best dinner club so far. I had the Chicken Milanese Sandwich with Salad. The chicken was so moist and tasty and was served on a fresh Ciabatta bun. The salad had a very delicious dressing. The meal was a very generous sized portion and was well worth the money. I can't wait to go back again.
Great choice Allison! I had the pulled prime rib sandwich with fries, it was excellent! The fries as promised were very tasty! Great spot to go for fabulous tasting food at a reasonable price. I had a drink, my dinner and a delicious carrot cake for $22.50+tax of course!
With our group of 10, they didn't automatically add the 20% gratuity, as so many restaurants do. The service was great and we had a lot of fun!
The O Restaurant and Lounge gets 4 Shazams from this Girl!
I had the St. Louis Style Ribs.... WET!!! Y-u-m-m-y-O! Although I heard the fries were awesome, I opted for the mashed variety! Upon my request, I fully expected to hear "we can do that but for an additional charge!" But, to my surprise, they gave me my mashed potatoes without any hassle what-sO-ever and with nO extra charge! I washed it all down with an Australian Cab Shiraz and topped it off with the silky chocolate mousse!
They gave us crazy girls our own private room where we could laugh and have fun, complete with our own set of patio doors in case things got a little "hot"!! The service was great, the wine was fabulous and the food was delicious!
Maybe next time I'll have the BIG O that Allison raved about!!
O Restaurant and Lounge is in the Marda Loop area of Calgary which is currently being revitalized...an empty parking stall is a little hard to find right next to the building. Actually the building looks more like a modern house. It has three levels with the kitchen and a private room upstairs. On the main level there is a lounge and bar area as well as another small private room and patio. This is a new restaurant by the same people who established Ric's Grill. The menu is casual, fusion/contemporary (whatever that means!)
We loved our meal here. The service was very good and the chef even came to talk with us after the meal. The highlight was when they came around with their mini dessert carousel where we had the choice of lemon meringue, carrot cake, chocolate mousse or creme brulee each for only $3.00. Think a votive candle holder size. Choices available vary daily.
We had positive comments for the St. Louis Style Ribs (both the dry and wet versions) $21, the salmon, and the massive signature O burger. The fries were really good. The only negative was the gravy which was bland and somewhat bitter. The prices are very reasonable.
