Let your hair down at this Calgary restaurant where familiar foods are served in a no-judgment, rule-free environment.
Chef Neil McCue hails most recently from a Michelin star-rated English restaurant, and brings his expertise to Whitehall to serve contemporary British dishes in its namesake white room. Think like a Brit: start with the Mackerel small plate and finish out the night with the Stilton cheesecake ice cream atop a walnut cake.
The Lowdown Venue Setting
One of the newest additions to Calgary’s dining scene is Whitehall Restaurant in the historic community of Bridgeland. British Chef Neil McCue returned to Calgary to open Whitehall after successfully earning Michelin stars for two restaurants in the UK. The menu is Modern European with British influences, true to Chef Neil’s roots. Whitehalls mantra: fine cooking can be comfortable and enjoyed outside the context of fine dining.
Whitehall's space is divided into two rooms, each accommodating approximately 40 people, one containing a bar, the other open to the modern kitchen. Fees

Whitehall is in the the historic de Waal Block, sitting in one of Calgary’s most beloved neighbourhoods - Bridgeland. The building owners won the Lion Award for best restoration, after spending over $1 million restoring the building and maintaining original finishes, including hardwood floors and pressed tin ceilings.
Every effort has been made to preserver the historic integrity of the building, including the use of industrial piping to create Whitehall’s comfortable 12-seat bar. The counter at the bar is extra wide to accommodate casual, full-service dining. In 2016, the basement of Whitehall will be transformed into a wine cellar and private dining area.
The Whitehall Restaurant space is literally two rectangular ‘white halls,’ the lower dining room / bar and “The Other Room” (aptly named for private dining room that Sir Winston Churchill founded after being banished from the main dining room) which is up two stairs and open to the kitchen.
The Palace of Whitehall was the main residence of the English monarchs in London from 1530 until 1698 until it was devastated by fire. It was the largest palace in Europe at the time with over 1500 rooms (even larger than the Vatican or Versailles).
Today, Whitehall is the main thoroughfare and commonly used name for a community in the City of Westminster. It runs from the original Charring Cross Station at the southern end of Trafalgar Square towards Parliament Square, and is recognized as the centre of ‘Her Majesty’s Government,’ home to many of the current administrative buildings of the UK government.
