Underwhelming! Although it is during Covid & weather was not great. Still expected more from the food & atmosphere. Patio heaters were not that helpful and patio was nothing special. Price was high for an average experience.
Always a great pleasure. Breakfast on the patio with the snow coming down was beautiful. Nothing like BVR.
What an amazing spot for an anniversary dinner! The food, cocktails, and service was all outstanding. I still can't get over the salted caramel pot de crème!! We cannot wait to return again :)
Perfect patio - sheltered and protected. Great food.
Really wonderful experience, would recommend......
Amazing food. Wonderful evening. And a gorgeous setting.
Thank you so much!
We had the best meal we have had all year at BVR. The food was hot, fresh and delicious. There service was excellent and the ambience was lovely.
We had an amazing experience April 10! We celebrated our Parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary. It was cold and windy out! The staff did an amazing job supplying heaters and providing anything else they could. The food was great, amazing cocktails. We were the only table for most of the night- and not once did we ever feel pushed out, or rushed. Thank you so much for making the night a special one we won't soon forget!
Food was excellent. Even though we had to follow Covid protocols and eat on the patio on a cold evening, the experience was excellent. We were quite warm thanks to an overhead heater, our food was perfect and service was excellent.
Thank you for the kind words and choosing to celebrate with us! Happy Birthday again from all of us at BVR!
Very delicious food no doubt especially the lamb that I had was tender and tasty.
We had a delightful lunch on the patio at the restaurant. Really appreciated the heat lamp as it kept us very comfortable. Highly recommend The Ranche for fine dining!
Thank you for the review!
My sister’s birthday
Thank you for celebrating with us!
Such a beautiful place to visit, the food is always so delicious and the staff are so very professional! I highly recommend this place it has always been one of my favourite restaurant to visit.
The food was very good and the help the staff gave us in making our choice made the overall dinner well worth it.
Thank you, happy anniversary again!
Wonderful night out. First class service. Quality food. Diverse local menu.
Thank you Michael!
Come here to celebrate birthday! The express lunch was delicious! Love the ambiance of this restaurant! Highly recommended!
Fantastic restaurant with good food and atmosphere in the middle of fish creek park.
Thank you so much for your kind words!
Very disappointed in the surf n turf. Very flavourful bison but not real tender. Also the amount of seafood especially was quite disappointing! For $100 you’d think there would be more food!
Hi Kim, Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear that the Surf & Turf for two was not up to your expectations. I've passed your feedback to your kitchen so they can improve for future visits.
Every time we go we decide to try something else and every time we go for the Surf and Turf again. Absolutely delicious!
Thank you Alex for your ongoing support! It is a crowd favourite for a reason! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
The Bow Valley Ranche was our first experience with fine dining in over a year.
We were excited to be dining out for Easter dinner & The Ranche did not disappoint!
Thank you Hilda for the wonderful review!
I went to Bow Valley Ranche for their Easter brunch special, as a treat to myself because COVID meant I wouldn't be gathering with family or friends. It was everything I hoped for as a break from reality - absolutely delicious food (the Croque Madam), exquisite service and lovely ambiance. With a window seat looking out over the grounds, a quiet room and the leisure to linger over my meal, it was the perfect way to celebrate the holiday.
We had a beautiful Easter Brunch at the Ranch, as always the food and service were outstanding. Thank you 🥂
We went the Bow Valley to have Easter Brunch as we do every year plus other occasions. We both had the Eggs Benedict. They never disappoint! Everything was amazing. Food, service, staff. Thank you again for a wonderful experience
Thank you for your continued support Linda! So glad you enjoyed everything.
It was a great experience, highly recommended. We enjoyed our Saturday brunch so much.
We ordered the tenderloin with fried egg, but our server brought the steak frites. We were in a hurry so we just ate it but it was disappointing. I find people don’t really listen to what is being said anymore.
Always a very enjoyable experience. Food and ambience are excellent.
Thank you for your kind words!
The express lunch was great. Delicious and very generous portion. A nice lunch out.
We had the express lunch menu. Everything was a good portion size and the taste was amazing. Our server was energetic and knowledgeable. They accommodated my drink order to reduce the sugar, and were considerate enough to rim my glass with lime, rather than sugar syrup. We will definitely be back.
Thank you for the detailed review! We look forward to seeing you soon!
First time going, definitely won't be the lasy. Went gor brunch and had eggs Benedict. Very good.
As always everthing was amazing from food to service .
Great night for a birthday celebration. Thank you to the server - she was great.
Thank you Travis!
It’s was a relaxing yet efficient meal. Felt very safe. They even went above and beyond in wishing me Happy Birthday in chocolate on my desert. Very wonderful experience.
Thank you for choosing to celebrate with us!
Our experience was extraordinary, food was great, service was excellent, and the ambiance was lovely
We are definitely going back
Thank you for the great review!
Staffs are very kind and professional. Food is generally good.
Two of our five dishes were good. Had to send one back - halibut was way too salty. The two desserts were not great - pastry tasted stale, apples were mealy and the ‘cake’ was not cake. Not worth the price.
Thank you for your review and I am sorry to hear that the food was not up to standard. I have forwarded feedback to our staff so that we can improve for future visits. If possible, we would love an opportunity to invite you back and make it right! Please reach out to Suzanne at 403-476-1310
Quaint atmosphere. Staff were attentive and helpful with recommendations of drink, appetizer, and meals. All courses were delicious and plated beautifully. Ingredients were fresh and the tastes complimented each other. I would highly recommend for a nice date night or special occasion.
Thank you Sherry for the detailed review and support!
Overpowering smell of fish at entry; service slow; not seated in main area
Hi Jim, Unfortunately with COVID precautions, we have limited seating in the main dining room. Fortunately, we have two beautiful side rooms to seat additional guests. My apologies but I took a look at your reservation and it does not look like you requested to be seated in any area in particular. I would love an opportunity to chat further about your overall experience and understand the score you gave us. I can be reached at 403-476-1310. Thank you for your time. -Suzanne | Events Coordinator
It' been a while since any restaurant has rally wowed me, but The Bow Valley Ranch did just that. The service prompt but not intrusive. The food began with a complimentary and utterly delicious amuse bouche and bread course, but that was only the beginning of the experience, from the appetizers through to desert the presentation and attention to detail was outstanding, truly a feast for the eyes, but the icing on the cake was the beautiful flavor combinations that left us in awe. If you haven't had the pleasure to experience the Bow Valley Ranch, take the time to experience this dinner delight, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
Thank you Sandra for the fantastic review! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
I chose this restaurant because of the historical location. The atmosphere is very pleasant and spacious with turn of the century charm included. The service is among the best I’ve received - top tier. The food is very very good also. And no, I’m not a paid to say nice things.
Thank you Gerald for your kind words! We consider ourselves lucky to be in a such a beautiful location.
