Thomsons Ratings and Reviews
Great Brunch! Lots of food, well prepared and displayed. Really almost cant believe all that for $35. full breakfast cold food, fruit parfaits, vegan food, eggs, wafles pancakes made to order. carved beef, shrimp, cold cuts, salads, small dimsum, soups,desserts and candy, crazy Lit!
Visiting Calgary from the UK, we took friends for brunch here. There is so much selection everyone could find plenty to like. The food is beautifully presented and the service good; our juice and coffee were constantly refilled. I would definitely recommend it.
If anyone is even considering Thomson's take a chance and go to it! My family and I (which was 5 people) got an easy reservation which was not needed as it wasn't busy in the dinning room at all, and we absolutely loved it. First of all, it is in the Hyatt which has gorgeous art pieces everywhere, including the restaurant. The service was fantastic and they were always there to fill water and get you anything you needed. It was quiet so anyone who may have some issues hearing it would be a perfect location. The food for the money was fabulous and the wine was delicious and they had a great selection. Take a chance at this hotel restaurant, you will not be disappointed!
First visit to this establishment and i must say that the food selection and presentation was very good. Their level of service left much to be desired. They asked if we wanted bread, after taking our order, to which we declined. Yet, just prior to our meals arriving our server delivered us the bread and then moments later it was removed by another server. Our server did NOT return after the first few bites to inquire on our impression of our meals.
We went there for New Year Eve dinner. The waiter was absolutely experienced and respectful. Food was perfect. I got Irish coffee for desert which was the best I have ever had. I got a white wine and my husband got a red one. Both were awesome. Also, the restaurant is really kid's friendly.
Thomson's had an amazing New Years Eve dinner special. Avacado and pistachio salad to start, Prime rib and prawns with mashed potatoes and veggies for the main and a delicious white chocolate and pomegranate dessert. Plus champagne all for $65 a person. My parents and I really enjoyed our dinner! Best prime rib we have ever had! Service was great! We will come back soon for sure!
Recently had Sunday brunch and was overall happy with the meal. Attentive servers are always checking on you and making sure your coffee and juice is topped up. Very good brunch selection ranging from usual breakfast to the more luncheon variety. Only complaint is food is not hot enough .... eggs, bacon etc were lukewarm... Did not see covers on these dishes ... maybe that would help.. Love the candy selection in the dessert section.
The breakfast prices are unreasonable and I expect get paid because tourists don't know what their other local options are. $25 for the breakfast buffet is an insult and will likely prevent me from returning. I can leave the table at Cora's (which is only a couple of blocks away) stuffed for $15.
The staff was very efficient and attentive. They kept the water and coffee cups full and removed the used dishes promptly, as well as replenishing the utensils. It was a birthday celebration for one of my friends and the staff somehow knew and brought a dessert with a candle in it and they all sang "Happy Birthday" to her. We moved to the lounge, where two of us ordered prosecca but, by mistake, we were brought Mimosas. The waiter realized the mistake before he reached us but served one of us her wine and took the mimosas back. He returned with the proseccas and then later returned with the mimosas, on the house. He was ver attentive and friendly. One of my friends knew him and his family from many years before. All in all, we enjoyed the day and Thomsons was a perfect choice of venue.
I love going to Thomsons for Sunday Brunch. I love the atmosphere and the food choices. It's not just pancakes and eggs. There was a person in our group who was on a special diet and even she made a comment about the variety and quality of food. $34 is a bit pricey, but still well worth it for a great selection and quality.
Have not found a breakfast/brunch place in Calgary that we like better than Thomsons at the Hyatt. The staff are all so welcoming and friendly. The brunch and breakfast buffet items are all top quality. You can tell that everyone takes pride in what they do.
Quality of service seems to have declined. After food was served the waiter did not check back with us until everyone had finished their meals.
hamburger patty was similar to a frozen, president's choice patty
fake bacon bits in caesar salad, (but the chicken was tasty and moist)
most of our table was poured 1/2 cup of coffee and charged $4.00/cup
There for brunch.
Great value at $34 for all they have. Full breakfast with smoked salmon, eggs benedict, waffles and pancakes made on request so they are always fresh. roast beef, dimsum, salads, sliced cold cuts, great selection of desserts and candies for the kids! great place to spoil yourself and family!
We went to Thomson's for their Sunday Brunch buffet. It was for a birthday celebration. From being seated, our waiter was inattentive and often nowhere to be seen. Any requests for drinks or refills we had to hunt him down to ask and even then his response was very slow. Orders for waffles, pancakes, and Eggs Benedict had to be made through waiter. I was waiting over half an hour for 3 small pancakes. When we saw our waiter talking for over 15 mins and hugging people at another table, I went to find acting manager to complain. Even though the service was slightly better afterwards, the waiter's rude and unfriendly attitude continued.
Food quality was good, but disappointed with selection. There needed to be a fruit platter , not just melon. A raw veggie with dip plate and salad options would be other suggestions. Not a lot of options for vegetarians.
Home made hash browns were just halved small potatoes. Not what I would call hash browns. Omelet line was slow, as was getting orders for pancakes etc. The brewed coffee was terrible.
Having not dined at Thomsons in just over a year, I had high hopes for our dinner this evening. Previous experiences were decent and with the current state of the Calgary economy, I had expected restaurants of this calibre to have stepped up their game to provide the best possible service.
Sadly, not only was I disappointed, but I was in awe as to how this train-wreck of a dining experience unfolded and continued to get worse at every turn.
Right from the start, Nick, our waiter rubbed me the wrong way as he reacted and looked at me dismissively, almost with contempt, that I would order something other than an alcoholic beverage.
From ignoring me when I informed him of my allergies and then subsequently screwing up my order to getting annoyed at me when I let him know that the order was wrong, things just got worse as our dining experience unfolded. The kitchen overcooked my guest's steak and Nick informed him that it would take at least a half hour to get a new one. My guest simply told him to take it away as we did not have the time to wait that long for a replacement. Nick assured us that it would be taken off the bill.
Finally, when the bill arrived, sure enough, the steak was not removed. When I flagged Nick down to tell him, he again seemed annoyed that I would bring this to his attention.
Throughout these multiple mishaps, no effort was made by the manager to check in with us or apologize for the multiple mixups we encountered.
Overall, one of our worst dining experiences in recent memory and would definitely not recommend Thompson's for the mediocre quality food and substandard service. There are much better restaurants for you to spend your hard earned money at that deserve your business in this economic downturn.
My Mom, daughter (7yrs old) and I went for Sunday brunch. The selection was extensive and all delicious. We left completely stuffed. I can not comment on the value as we had a gift certificate to pay for our meals. The decor and ambiance is great. The service was good. You are able to order eggs benedict, waffles, pancakes, and eggs from the server on top of everything else in the buffet style brunch.
