Our server was fantastic. Which is amazing as the last several times that hasn’t been the case!!!! She’s definitely made us want to come back.
I have been to Bonterra before, but the last 2 times I have gone the service was undesirable. It took at least 15 minutes to even get water and then another 20 to get drinks. Both times were in the past months. We had 2 different servers each time and one time was on patio and one time inside.... both experiences exactly the same.
It really doesn’t not make myself or the people in our group return.
Food and service were impeccable, wine selection impressive.
I know it's Stampede, but not everyone wants to party 2 weeks solid. I could have done with out the loud county music in this quaint Italian garden patio.
We took a coworker there for he birthday and the food was delicious. The ambience was cool very Italian for sure.
Great food and fantastic service. Would have rated higher but a bachelorette party distracted from an otherwise perfect night.
Had a wonderful table on the patio. Everyone loved their food choices! Atmosphere and service was great!
Food was absolutely amazing as was the service! Nice wine selection as well.
Bonterra is always a great experience. The wait staff are polite and professional, the food is always excellent and surprisingly well priced, and the restaurant is beautiful. If you have a chance to sit on their patio in the summer, do it, especially on a warm evening.
Food was excellent as usual, chef Ben and his crew do an amazing job. We got a full tasting menu and got to try so many tasty dishes. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff, very attentive and always refilled water to removed empty plates right away. Highly recommend for great Italian fare downtown!
We were celebrating the end of school for our kids and had an amazing night. Excellent meal every single time!
Great food, friendly efficient service, on an outdoor patio that makes you feel like you have been to another country without the hassle of travel.
Food was not great.. everything was either oily or very salty.. service not great as well.. she never offered us another drink, when we finished the first one.. not good Italian food
Great time. Still good after 13 years visiting!
Amazing dining experience from the ambiance to the food to the great service. We even received a complimentary glass of Prosecco as it was our anniversary.
Nothing better than a meal on Bonterra's patio!! Perfect!!
The meal took a while to be served but the food was excellent.
Had the vongole. Tagliatelli too large a pasta for this dish. Clams also too big. The cooking liquid however was amazing. Delicious. My wife's dish was good but not great. Server very good, professional yet friendly, smart and helpful. Nice place.
It was a great spot with good food. We sat on the patio and it was perfect. We could have a conversation and enjoy lunch together.
Good service slow but was busy and waitress first night
Lamb shank should require a steak knife, actually a knife should not be needed
The service, food and ambience are all fantastic; and of course the patio is wonderful.
Went to Bonterra for a friend’s birthday. Had a lovely lunch of salad and roast chicken. The chicken was moist and simply delicious!!! Would definitely go back.
We are planning to have our wedding here, what a wonderful place with amazing food and great service!
lovely place. Our server, Courtney, was amazing! Food and wine was great, particularly the rigatoni. Wonderful night out. I'll be back for sure.
Beautiful Patio setting, good menu selection with individual ala cart items, as well a set menus with chefs menu and family style options. Definitely returning again!
Beautiful patio and excellent service. Complimentary parking was appreciated. Food was very good. We will return.
This beautiful restaurant is like a mini trip to Italy without leaving the city. The patio is gorgeous but so is the rest of the restaurant a completely authentic and enchanting space and the food is FANTASTIC!! Service super cordial and efficient what more could you ask for? I adore this restaurant and would recommend if ever wanting to prove to out of town guests that Calgary too has a world class dinning options.
The service was great, our servers was very knowledgeable and kind. Unfortunately one of our dishes were a miss.
Birthday - the service was very slow at first than greatly improved. Amazing food, amazing atmosphere.
My only complaints are that a) there was a man doing work on the roof next door and it was noisy for like three minutes so if you’re a real uptight person that hates that, well... just hope there isn’t someone working on the day you attend b) the meal was so good I was too full for dessert
Today myself and three girl friends had lunch on the patio and truly felt less than welcome from our server. I am not sure if it is because we all had the express lunch for $ 25.00 and drank only water that we received such disdain. It was clear to the four of us that she would rather have been clearing all the tables around us than making sure we were looked after. When our desert was delivered we received a sort of apology that the cookies had to actually come out of the oven giving us the impression they would be hot. Delicious cookies, but stone cold. The food is delicious, the patio beautiful but we all came back to the office wondering why we would ever go back to Bonterra.
Patio was great - then we were moved inside - and forgotten - staff went missing. Great start and then downhill - servers should be trained that the evening is a totality - beginning to end. We were left to feel that she could hardly wait to be done - and she was only serving us once we moved inside......I work in the service industry and would make this part of training of the "whole" of the experience. You have a great patio, but the staff inside was short of expectations. It wasn't busy......it was the Monday of the Raptor loss......so, really quite disappointed at the end....as it was not busy and the staff inside was very short on service
Once again, Bonterra Trattoria has delivered their outstanding food with wonderful service in an awesome setting. Consistent quality every time is what keeps us coming back!
We were fortunate enough to be on the patio and had a perfect table near the fire. The server was very attentive without being intrusive. The food was wonderful and beautifully presented. All in all a lovely evening.
Food was amazing as always. Service was equally great. The server brought out a replacement dish for us right away after an 'incident' with our two year old resulted in a drink being spilled into it.
Amazing and accommodating
Everything was excellent from the appies to main corse to desert will defiantly be back
We went for dinner to catch up with out of town friends and the staff at Bonterra were amazing. They let us stay for ages - never making us feel hurried and the food was perfection! Special requests and allergies were accommodated kindly. What a great place! Will be back for their amazing patio.
