Calgary’s newest fine dining experience is The Wilde, which operates out of the swanky new hotel, The Dorian. The Wilde is a sky-high restaurant, located on the 27th floor, serving specialty cocktails and exquisite food! Much like the hotel is named after, the Wilde takes inspiration from Oscar Wilde works, but instead of the cozier storybook vibe, The Wilde is chic and cosmopolitan.
