Really Good! - Edit

My sister and I went out for lunch here the other day. I wasn't sure what to expect as I had heard that it wasn't very good for the price, I had a gift card given to me so perhaps that softened the blow a bit for me. The portions were definitely small but the food we did get was extremely tasty (I highly reccomend the tacos and the red pepper dip!) and on the bright side this did save us room for a vegan milkshake(!!!) and the vegan chocolate cake (which happens to be the only thing I want to eat for the rest of my life). The staff were also absolutely wonderful, our waitress was a total gem and the chef (I'm assumming based on his outfit) even held the door for us on the way out. All in all we had such a great experience, the only real con was the portion sizes in relation to the prices. I'd recommend it definitely if you want some extremely tasty food and aren't super hungry (or if you are super hungry and simultaneously super rich).

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Charming atmosphere, Absolutely lovely staff

Cons: Small portions, Called a "veg kitchen" even though they serve fish

1 star if I could - Edit

Unfortunately I wasn't allowed to give this place one star. We were very excited when we heard a new vegetarian restaurant was opening up in Calgary so we tried it out days after it opened.

The menu was OK but quite expensive considering the portion sizes. We ordered about 6 dishes and ALL 6 were very under seasoned. When we told the waitress she simply said, ya the chefs don't use much salt. I then told her that the dishes literally had ZERO salt and she said nothing. Needless to say we weren't impressed with White Rose.

Mediocre - Edit

I was very excited when my carnivorous mom pointed out this restaurant, we went for lunch and the food was very good, I had the red pepper dip and the portobello. Unfortunately, the service was very slow and anytime our waiter came to the table he was very quick to turn and walk away. We waited for over 15 minutes for a drink before we got to remind him of it, the staff was friendly but the service was almost painfully slow. Other than that the food was good, not many vegan options I may add and absolutely nothing for children and portions are very small especially for the price, you'll be stopping for fries on the way home.

Pros: good food, cute atmosphere

Cons: slow service, small portions, lacking variety

Very disappointing - Edit

I was so excited about this restaurant popping up, since we live so close to it and there is very little vegan restaurants to choose from. It was a total let down to say the least. The friendly staff were the only thing that made this place less than mediocre. Since I don't eat dairy, the options were limited and the dishes that were ok for me to eat were bland and over priced. The vegan dishes focused very little on protein so I was left very hungry after basically eating two stalks of broccolini and a handful of brown rice. They did however take one of the dishes off the bill because of the distaste I expressed which was nice and offered me something different...and then charged me for it. I wouldn't go again and am sure that if I ate dairy it might have been a different story for me.

Pros: friendly staff, location

Cons: menu, price, lack of variety for vegans
