Lovely spot on the porch. Salad reminded me I need to ask for organic pepper or no pepper. Service was good. Food was wonderful (except for the pepper). Always a delight. We'll be there again.
Thank you for your feedback
Wonderful lunch on the patio. Great food and service.
Welcoming setting. We had the express lunch and we had the salmon and the beef shank and they were delicious. The service was excellent. Highly recommend this place. Hidden treasure!

The drinks, the meal and our server!!! Superb !!!!
No fault of the restaurant however missing the vibe of more tables and guests. We also noticed , no linens ....it seems to be consistent with all restaurants and that is something that brings a more Devine dining experience! We highly recommend this Restaurant!!!
Thank you for your feedback.

Thank you for leaving a review!
Great lunch. Great atmosphere. Very peaceful Great value for lunch. Great service.
Very nice to return here again. Porch was open and was very quiet. Nice service and as always good food.
Due to Covid rules we were on the patio on a damp, chilly day.
However, despite the weather, we enjoyed the meal and the service provided by the staff.
A wonderful experience which we will repeat.
Thank you Don for joining us despite the cooler weather! We look forward to hosting again soon!
This is just a wonderful place to have dinner whether you are a Calgarian or a visitor. This gorgeous old ranch house sits right in Fish Creek Provincial Park so the surrounding area is filled with trees, prairie grasses and beautiful landscape. The food is exquisite and high quality and there is an excellent and broad wine list.
This is a restaurant for special occasions, romantic evenings or celebrations of any kind. It is a bit of a drive but there is lots of parking and if the weather is suitable it is a great place to eat outdoors on the very large deck.
Pricey!! Make sure that you go there with a good credit card, it is not inexpensive.
Thank you for leaving a detailed review! We are pleased that you enjoyed everything and look forward to hosting you again soon!
Our dinner at the Ranche last night was great. We had to sit due to covid restrictions but it was warm enough. The staff offered us blankets as the evening progressed and temperatures started to drop. My wife had the tenderloin. It was cooked to perfection. I had the Halibut and it was also very good . The portions were big enough that we had no room for dessert.
Thank you for the great feedback and braving the cold weather to join us!
We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary on June 8, 2021 during COVID restrictions. The attention to detail and staff interaction was exceptional. Ramesh was our server and he was fabulous! He made our experience very memorable and took the time to take photos of us while ensuring our every needs were met during our 2 hour dinner. The food was outstanding! We will definitely be going back to the Bow Valley Ranche. Thank you for making our 25th Wedding Anniversary so special.
Thank you for the excellent score, we hope to see you again soon!
Great express lunch. Food, service and surroundings always the best
Thank you so much!
Great overall experience. Portion sizes quite small for the cost - but the food excellent. We did have to sit outside due to COVID restrictions, though. The heaters they had were only over the larger tables, and we were a party of 2 so didnt' qualify to seated under a heater. They did bring us blankets which was nice, but the evening was rather chilly.
Thank you for your review! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the flavors overall. Unfortunately we are limited on the number of heaters we're able to bring in due to the electricity restrictions we face as a heritage site in Fish Creek. I am sorry to hear that this affected your experience. We are now open for in-house dining if there is a chance for you to join us again!
Wonderful meal, but low marks for ambience due to the Covid restrictions requiring outside dining. The weather was very cold and wet, and our table had no heater, so by the end of the meal we were extremely cold and uncomfortable. Not BVR’s fault, but better heating arrangements would have made for a more enjoyable evening.
Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately we are limited on the number of heaters we're able to bring in due to the electricity restrictions we face as a heritage site in Fish Creek park. I am so sorry to hear that this affected your experience with us overall! If there is an opportunity to improve our score in the future, please reach out to Richard at 403-476-1310
Love the new menu - lots a choice and very tasty. Wonderful place to celebrate an anniversary.

Fantastic rewtaraunt. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.
From the welcoming staff, the majestic restaurant to the scrumptious food, it was a delight to dine on the porch listening to the birds while the wind whistled through the trees and lush greenery.
Thank you for your feedback!
What a nice treat for an afternoon lunch - perfect setting and food perfection!
I usually have dinner but went for my mother's birthday lunch. Not as good as the dinner experience....food, service etc.
Hi Shelley, Sorry to hear that lunch wasn't as spectacular as dinner. If you are able to elaborate on food & service points that we can improve on, that would be appreciated. please give Richard or Suzanne a call at: 403-476-1310. Thank you!
The originally tried to seat us at the back of the building. There were only two tables set up and it felt very awkward. Having made a reservation so far in advance I expected to be seated on the patio.
Thank you for your feedback. We take reservations one month in advance and are automatically assigned to a table. The back landing by Charlie's Lounge is also part of our patio. The only addition was the umbrellas to ensure that guests would be comfortable. Our apologies if this location was not up to standard. We hope there will be opportunity in the future to improve our score on ambience and value!
The venue, food and service is always exceptional. The setting in Fish Creek Park is one of the best in Calgary, in my opinion.
Thank you Steve!
We went to this amazing restaurant after 2 days of being open. It was out 10th wedding anniversary and worth waiting for in every way!! Looove the food and ambiance. Service is impeccable as well!

I have always wanted go to the Bow Valley restaurant. This year my girls took me for Mother’s Day. Only it was Saturday we went. The food was amazing. Service was friendly and outstanding. The only thing was the cold and rain. But I loved it. We had a fantastic time. Thank you for helping make my Mother’s Day memorable.
Although the weather did not cooperate, we had a wonderful Mother’s Day brunch!
Blankets and heater provided.
Food and Service were absolutely amazing!
Perhaps adding a breakfast option not involving eggs might be considered?
Highly recommend to all.
Everything was fantastic, we always like to come back. Staff is very friendly and food is amazing.
Best dinner out - maybe ever. Food was amazing; we had the bison surf & turf. Wine suggestion and service excellent - and as requested, the sun came out
