“X marks the spot.”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

An iconic architectural landmark in the centre of town. View my beautiful city and its surrounding area. Gaze to the Prairies or off to the the mountains. A great place to take memorable pictures. Walk on a glass floor hundreds of feet above the sidewalk below. Enjoy a splendid and relaxed meal as your table rotates for a 360 degree view, day or night. During Stampede you may have to share the elevator with a horse that annually goes up to have a look and share stories with people. But you can always wait for the next one.

“Just another tower.”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

View of Calgary is nothing to write home about and the restaurant is pretentious and ridiculously over priced. Most I've heard leave hungry and dissapointed. We went to a cool pub for hot wings after a $200 meal.

“overpriced”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

definitely overpriced, especially because there are skyscrapers around that are higher and obscuring the view

“good food and beautiful view”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

this is the place to go to get a terrific view of the mountains that encase the West side of the city.. you get a 360 degree view and also can experience some amazing foods.. Beware of the rotating restaurant as it can make you a bit dizzy.. It doesn't move very quickly but the constant changing scenery was tough on my equilibrium at first..
