Calgary - Petite: A little too warm, but great food

I returned to Petite for the first time in a few months, had an excellent meal. I noticed some recent reviews on other sites complaining about the air circulation, this must be a recent problem, as I did not notice it on earlier visits, but it was definitely over warm in the room. Other than that: everything went fine; the service was friendly, they seated me without a reservation (I took a risk and knew it, this is such a small place and usually busy, I was lucky to get in without checking in advance), and my waitress was helpful and creative in coming up with wine pairings. The charcuterie board was excellent (and paired with 2 half-glasses of wine, one red and one white, which was especially fun), and so was the halibut.

Hopefully they will be able to fix the heating problem - I didn't get around to asking them what was going on. This is still one of my favourite restaurants in the city, the food is consistently great and like the small and intimate feel. I have yet to be disappointed at Petite.
