Murrieta's Bar & Grill is hailed as one of Calgary's most celebrated and sumptuous places to dine.
Situated within the spectacularly renovated walls of the Alberta Hotel building (c.1890) we offer a feast not only for the senses... but for the soul as well, with something unique to offer every distinctive palate.
The cuisine at Murrieta's can be described as West Coast with a large selection of seafood, steak, game, and pasta.
The extensive wine list compliments this theme with a strong focus on Pacific Rim wines, although great wines from the Old World and other regions can be found.
On Friday and Saturday nights we showcase live bands from 10:00pm to 1:00am. Musical styles range from R&B and Funk to Classic Rock and Jazz.

Dave Bohati - Executive Chef

Murrieta's Calgary & Canmore

A long and creative career for Bohati began with washing dishes and eventually cooking at a high volume fresh seafood restaurant in Victoria BC in 1998. After working his way around a couple of the high volume restaurants of Vancouver Island for 10 years, he made the move to Vancouver to see some professional kitchens. It was at Elixer in the Opus Hotel, that transformed the way Dave looked at food and cooking all together. In 2010 he arrived in Calgary to cook at a juggernaut fine dining restaurant called “Rush”.

It was after 3 years at Rush, Dave had the opportunity to open the restaurant “Market” on 17th Ave, on the hip and trendy strip in Calgary, in 2013.
Dave was recently named an ambassador for Canada Beef where he has traveled to countries such as Colombia and Mexico several times to showcase his take on food at exclusive events.
He battled his way around the Culinary Championships of Canada by winning the Calgary regional in 2014. Although he didn’t end up on the podium for the finals in Kelowna, Dave came away with another great experience. Fast forward to the most recent Gold Medal Plates 2017 where Bohati managed to grab the Bronze with a classic, but modern take on a terrine.
After a brief summer stint in Montreal at “Park”, Dave moved back to Calgary for a little down time. Dave was recently the Head Chef at the historic fine dining restaurant “Teatro”, where he and his brigade restored the classy fine dining restaurant back to the helm as one Calgary’s top destinations for dining.

We are excited to see his take and vision of Murrieta’s West Coast cuisine. With his talent, experience and mentorship I know that we will all achieve great things together.
