Spectacular setting and atmosphere. Truly a treat to have this restaurant nestled in the city of Calgary. You feel as though you've been transported back in time to the home of one of Calgarys most elite families 100 years ago. We loved our dinner here. The food and service was very good as well. We will return for sure!
Was a fantastic evening
Great food. Lovely setting.
We are not big eaters orded main course and one dessert. My cod was a bit dry, however potatoes were to die for. Dessert tasted amazing too. Very cute place for special event. Not cheap, however not too expensive. Good night overall.
Very good! Lovely place. We will return for brunch:)👍🏻👍🏻
My wife and I had the Valentine's Day menu. The food and service were beyond excellent. It was intimate, romantic and a overall amazing experience.
Valentines Day date
Amazing meal, beautiful space, top notch service!
Our server was awesome and the food was amazing as always. Love this restaurant!
Beautiful spot to escape to, with lovely food and impeccable service. For a few hours, it honestly felt like we were out of town! Hubby and I enjoyed soup and an entree each, and we were very pleased with the quality, and portion size, opting out of dessert because we were stuffed. Wine list was extensive...you will find just about anything you’re looking for! Highly recommend.
Was an excellent evening, perfect for an early Valentines Day date night.
Amazing place, we were the loudest ones there :P ..
Fire was amazing, walking outside with the snow and the gas powered lights, amazing!
We had a lovely experience at the Bow Valley Ranche. The atmosphere was beautiful and welcoming. We loved the variety of the menu and the service was excellent. Would definitely recommend.
Every thing was great, prompt service and food cooked to perfection. Next time I might order off of the children’s menu, the food our kids ordered looked amazing and the boy didn’t ask to put ketchup on it... nice work BVRR
Went for high tea was very nice. Highly recommend it.
Awesome as usual!
Our waiter Cameron was exceptional! Extremely attentive and friendly, gave great recommendations, and made our special night even better! The food was excellent and reasonably priced given how upscale the restaurant is. On top of that the house is beautiful, the ambience is perfect, and Cameron even gave us a tour after the meal. Overall went above and beyond our expectations!
My favorite place! Awesome everything!
I FOUND THE MENU A LITTLE TOO RESTRICTIVE FOR MY TASTE, I WOULD PREFER A FEW MORE OPTIONS PARTICULARLY IN THE PRICE RANGE OF RANCHE'S OFFERINGS.
EVERYONE AT THE TABLE SEEMED SATISFIED ALTHOUGH THE SERVICE WAS GENUINELY SLOW, ESPECIALLY NOTICEABLE AS THERE WERE MAYBE ONLY 4 OTHER TABLES OCCUPIED IN THE RESTAURANT.
I came in for Sunday brunch to celebrate my birthday with some friends. Our server, Dana, was wonderful. She was very personable and attentive, and was nice enough to split all of our bills at the end.
We were put in our own little room for the seven of us, which really made the meal special and intimate.
Thank you again!
Excellent food, great service, warm and inviting on a cold day. The only downside was that we were seated at a table in the middle of the restaurant that felt like we were in the way, even though there were plenty of empty tables along the outside of the room. Despite that, we were able to enjoy an outstanding meal with friendly and efficient service. Definitely save room for dessert!
As always, we had an amazing experience, best steak in Calgary!
Great place to celebrate a special occasion. The setting is perfect for a romantic night out.
As expected, BVRR was the perfect choice for a mid winter distraction. Tucked away in Fish Creek Park, you forget you're still in the city.
Our foursome enjoyed a variety of unique and delicious selections: tuna and shrimp club house sandwich, veggie burger (it looks like a rare meat burger), Atlantic salmon with a faro risotto and the 3 course lunch special (soup, salmon filet plus a mini creme brûlée).
We were seated at a window table at the back, providing a toasty front row viewing of the wildlife enjoying the fresh snow on a very crisp day.
Great food and service. Great for a special occasion
Definitely recommended to eat here. Their lunch special is a great value
We were there for our anniversary. It was our first time dining here. The food was absolutely amazing. Our waiter was very friendly and sociable. There was a mix up with an order which he corrected but we found it took a little more time that expected to get drinks and refills. We would certainly come back and recommend to others!
We have been to the Bow Valley Ranche numerous times and have not been disappointed; however, our visit this time was extremely disappointing. Our waitress forgot our drink order as well as my husband's appetizer order. All four of us ordered the Surf and Turf as our main course and the bison steak was very dry. The bone marrow was very overcooked and dry as well. For the prices we paid, we definitely do not feel we had good value.
We went on a Christmas gift card. We will now come back to explore different menus in different seasons.
Amazing lunch celebrating my friend’s birthday. Going back in the next couple of months to celebrate mine. They provide many gf options. Truly enjoyed our lunch
Every thing was very good!! We were there for brunch and enjoyed our meals. French toast was exceptional! Server was good but not that attentive for fine dining. We will definitely be back for dinner. The only recommendation is to
Add some noise dampening material to the ceiling and or floor as it was very noisy in the main hall.
Isabelle our server was very attentive and accommodating to our requests. The meals were made and served in a very timely fashion and coffee and water served endlessly. Lots of choices on the menu however I would ask that the menu be a bit clearer if certain dishes are gluten free.
Would definitely go again and would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
Food was solid but nothing exceptional. Whipped / Mashed potato was over salted but a minor issue. Service was very good.
Came in for brunch. I love the atmosphere.. food was great and server was helpful.
This was the perfect brunch spot to introduce our out of town guests to what makes CXalgary so special.
Fantastic experience for a special event. The food, the service and the ambiance were amazing. We will be coming back!
We just had the best dinner with our family from out of country.
Our server Arjen was attentive and fun to have wait on us. We loved the ambience at the restaurant. It was cozy sitting by the fire without being too hot. The food was absolutely delightful and we all enjoyed every bite. The menu had many options but not too many to feel overwhelmed.
We had with us our 5 year old, 3 year old and 4 month old. We were accommodated and everyone took their time with our kids. They were extremely well behaved, but we were made to feel comfortable and at home. Definitely recommend and can’t wait to come back.
Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.
Excellent brunch! We are glad to see the Toasty mushroom dish offered without foie gras.
Although I've lived in Calgary my entire life I have never been to The Ranche and what a mistake on my part.
From the time we walked in the door the experience was amazing. If you're like me and love old homes, this one is a must see.
The food was beautifully presented; the ambiance spectacular and the staff wonderful to deal with.
Thank you for making my birthday brunch a memorable one!
We always go to Bow Valleys for New Years brunch. Food was amazing. Service was good. Always a good spot for any occasion. Thank you as always.
Perfect spot for brunch, with or without kids. Excellent service and delicious food, worth the drive and a stroll on the paths at Fish Creek.
