Reviews aren’t unanimous, but more favourable than not. (866) 754-5425;

Sky 360 The revolving restaurant at the top of Calgary Tower has shaken its brunch-for-tourists reputation, dropped its “elevation fee” (cover charge) and brought in Alain Chabot, considered one of the best chefs in Calgary. While some are wowed by his locally inspired creations, online reviews remain mixed. Decide for yourself. (403) 532-7966;

360 The well-established restaurant at Toronto’s CN Tower is literally considered one of the country’s top. Some folks rave about chef Peter George’s braised beef short rib with foie gras ravioli, pastry chef Joanne Yolles’ coconut cream pie or the award-winning “cellar in the sky.” Others say go up for the view and eat for less elsewhere.
