Celebrating our Anniversary at BVR was truly a pleasure! The staff, right from the front door, was pleasant and courteous; our waiter, Derek, was attentive but not intrusive; and the food...... was beautifully plated and absolutely delicious, from the appetizer, through our Beef Tenderloin main and perfectly topped off with the five-cheese plate for dessert. Thank you for a lovely evening - We will be back! p.s. I hear High Tea is worth a visit......
Hi Scarlet, Thank you so much for the great feedback! Happy Anniversary again from all of us!
Had a great evening at the Ranche for our anniversary dinner. The tables were spread apart and everyone was following Covid protocols. The restaurant is lovely and the service was attentive. I love the atmosphere at the Ranche, the only downside is that because of the hardwood floors it can get fairly noisy.
That said, the food was delicious. A great restaurant for a special occasion or just to treat yourself. And during the day, there’s a very nice view of Fish Creek park.
Thank you Rebecca for your feedback!
Outstanding service. Very nice ambience and food is definitely delicious. Surely will recommend.
Thank you for the review!
My cousin and I both had the salmon and it was extremely tasty. I would recommend it to anyone.
We checked out the domes and, next year, will be coming back with four friends.
Good food, wonderful service and great atmosphere! Always love stopping at The Ranche for lunch!
Loved it. Would go again. Sorry we didnt discover it before.
Fantastic birthday dinner for my son. He loved the mini creme brulee very unexpected.
Thank you Kathryn!
Excellent all around! The staff were very nice and the food was delicious! Great menu and the atmosphere was great!
Thank you Troy for joining us on such a special occasion! We hope to see you back here again soon!
We had never tried Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant and simply went by reviews we found on line. It was our 4th wedding anniversary and normally we are away - COVID has changed how we celebrate. We were very happy we chose Bow Valley the food was fantastic. Large portions so we ended up having a full meal for take home as we went with the beet salad (excellent) the charcuterie (meats were really good, wasn't as keen on the mixed vegetable salad on the board and would have liked extra grainy mustard and a bit more cheese) Filet Mignon was incredible - big cut! (hence the meal the next day) cooked and seasoned perfectly! Dessert was also incredible. Our waiter and all the serving staff were impeccable in their service and their timing never interrupting always attentive when needed. All in all - a memorable anniversary! Thank you so much Bow Valley Ranche for making our special day so wonderful.
Thank you Maureen for such a great review! Happy Anniversary again from all of us - I will be sure to pass on your feedback to Ramesh & the rest of our team.
We were disappointed in the overall experience. Perhaps a our expectations were greater than they should have been.
It’s unlikely we’ll return and we would not recommend the restaurant to others.

We were very disappointed with the Thanksgiving special on Saturday. It was “stuffed” turkey with Brie and cranberry but there was no Brie and only 1 cranberry. The turkey tasted and looked very processed and it was 45.00. The service was amazing though!
Thank you for your feedback! I will let the kitchen know so they can improve for next time!
Delicious brunch at the Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant and a great atmosphere.
Thank you Wendy!
I was disappointed with the food- a bit salty and not cooked to my specifications. The house is beautiful. The music was too loud.
Thank you for the information and my apologies that the meal was not up to standard. I would love a chance to know more about your visit and understand what went wrong! If you are able, please reach out to Suzanne or Richard at 403-476-1310
Every part of our brunch was excellent. Our eggs Benedicts and potatoes. Our daughters’ honey French toasts. All our drinks were delicious (hot chocolates and lattes). Excellent service! Really great experience and we will be back for brunch again soon. Thank you.
Thank you for your feedback!
Amazing experience in every way would definitely recommend for a special occasion or just a really nice quiet brunch!
Thank you Carol!
We enjoyed a lovely a lovely dinner, with another couple. As always, the service was excellent, as was the ambiance. My beef entree was 5 stars, however, the cod entrée was good, but not exceptional.
Thank you Susan - I will be sure to pass on your kind words to our team!
The Bow Valley Ranch is a great location and the food and overall service was excellent.
Great seasonal specials for Thanksgiving.
I would book this restaurant again.
The Ranche in Fish Creek Park has long been a favorite place to meet friends and take out of town guests for lunch or brunch. On a bright, sunny day, in any season, the ambiance, great food and service make the outing uniquely Calgary.
Thank you for your kind words!
The Ranch is always terrific! We had their express lunch and it was fantastic! The portions were satisfying and the dessert was just the right size. Definitely recommend for any occasion.
Thank you so much for your kind words!
The express lunch menu was delicious. The portions were just the right size and cooked to perfection.
Hi Nancy, thank you for your feedback! I will be sure to pass this on to our staff!
The overall experience was beyond expectations. Food 100%. Service 100%. Atmosphere 100%. You simply could not have a more rewarding restaurant experience than the Ranche. 3 adults and one child, couple drinks each for the adults. Bill with tip was just under $500. Worth it? OH YA!
Special call-out to our server Dana. She made the xperience extra special.
Thank you Mike for the fabulous review! So glad Dana made your night- will be sure to pass on your kind words to our team!
Overall, it was below expectations based on previous reviews.
We ordered the oysters and unfortunately they came out luke warm and not cold. The surf and turf bone marrow was all bread crumb, little to no marrow.
The elk tartare was served with French baguette and not the advertised bannock.
Hi Chris, Thank you for your feedback. I will be sure to pass your comments to our team to review. My apologies that your visit was not up to standard. If you are willing to come back and try us again - please notify Richard, our General Manager, so that we can set it up for you!
$92 for breakfast. Way to expensive. Will not be back here anytime soon.
Hi John, Thank you for your feedback! Our pricing is comparable to similar restaurants in Calgary and offers good value. We regret that this was not your impression and offer our apologies!
Excellent meal while celebrating a birthday. Good service and nice atmosphere. Would recommend.
Thank you Brad!
Perfect in every way. Weather was sunny and warm and we had a great seat on the porch. The service was friendly and someone was always available. The French toast was the best I have ever had and the portion was generous. My husband’s eggs Benedict had lots of wild mushrooms with it and the side of fruit was really fresh. One of my favourite restaurants in Calgary.
Thank you so much for your detailed review Leila! So glad to hear that everything was perfect and we look forward to hosting you again soon!
We went here for dinner for my Birthday. We were seated outside on the veranda to the left of the front door. I was a little apprehensive of this because I though it would be a lot of traffic and not very private but it turn out to be the opposite of that. It was a nice table to be seated at. We had a 5 pm reservation and the weather was warm and we enjoyed being outside. I ordered the Lobster Bisque, Roasted Alberta Beef Tenderloin Rossini Style and coffee and Pink Lady Apple Tarte Tatin with rum raisin ice cream for dessert. My husband ordered the Lobster Bisque, the Halibut Special and shared my dessert. I found the Lobster Bisque a bit salty for my taste and it was very quickly replaced with Truffle Burrata & Artichoke Salad, which was delicious! My husband enjoyed the Lobster Bisque. We both enjoyed the rest of our meal immensely. The Beef Tenderloin was so juicy and tender I probably could have cut it with a butter knife. My husbands Halibut was also delicious. The Apple Tarte Tatin was delicious and the house made Rum Raisin Ice Cream was to die for!! I also want to note that our server, Dana, remember we had told her it was my Birthday Dinner and Happy Birthday was written on my dessert plate. I was impressed with this thoughtfullness.
Our server, Dana, did an excellent job!! Ayden served our dessert and coffee and he was such a pleasure and we enjoyed speaking with him.
This was not our first visit to the Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant and definitely will not be our last. See you all soon!
Thank you so much for your kind words and detailed review! Happy Birthday again from all of us and I will be sure to pass on your compliments to Dana, Ayden and our whole team!
We had a great time and the service was outstanding
Thank you Dennis for your kind words!
Lunch express menu is great value for your money. Will be back soon.
Fantastic experience and food was outstanding .
Such a gorgeous setting
Thank you Anita! We hope you can join us again soon!
Amazing food and spectacular service!
Our meals were outstanding and the service impeccable. My husband and I both had seafood (the seafood special, which was Arctic char, and the scallops & prawn dinner on the menu) and our server asked if we would like help to select wine. The wine he chose for us was perfectly paired for our food. The dessert was beautifully presented and delicious!
Thank you Debbie for the great feedback! Hope to see you again soon!
An excellent evening out with four family members, service was outstanding and all four main courses met our expectations - Charcuterie board was well presented and was ideal while deciding on the main course and enjoying the restaurant's surroundings.
Always a great dinner, the food is amazing and the staff are very attentive.
