Derek is the best! Really good food at a beautiful venue. Highly recommend you book a reservation
Delicious Brunch! Great Service! Love eating here!
We had a first fantastic dining experience at the BVR and great service from Guillaume. Looking forward to going back!
My friend and I had the greatest time here. Food was absolutely spectacular and delicious. I want more of it. The staff was friendly, knowledgable, and quick with our orders. The whole restaurant is absolutely beautiful but the reason why I scored a four out of five stars is because I don’t like taxidermy. Otherwise, this restaurant is wonderful Both inside and out
Loved the 3 course menu. Great food, value and portion
The outside surroundings are beautiful. Sit on the patio if it's warm enough, or do your best to get a table right beside a window. We had a table in the middle of the restaurant with no easy view of the surroundings which was a bit disappointing. Aside from the view outside, there is nothing particularly special about the restaurant itself.
The food - haute cuisine - and beautiful to look at. Also very expensive for what you get. Although I enjoyed my lunch, I thought it a bit overpriced. You are paying for the presentation almost as much as the food itself.
Drinks - I had a virgin Pina Colada that looks fabulous but was tough to drink. The glass edge was coated with shredded coconut at least an inch below the rim. After every sip I had to wipe my mouth to remove the coconut that was left behind. I also needed a wet wipe to keep my hands clean as the glass was sticky from pineapple juice.
Overall it was a pleasant experience but not worth what I paid. Express Lunch (3 course), virgin colada , gst and 18% tip came to $42. Sitting at a window or on the patio may have changed my mind.
Overall a wonderful lunch experience. We ordered the chef’s menu and each course was artfully prepared and presented. The portion sizes were perfect for lunch and the September weather cooperated so we could dine outside.
Excellent food and service
Great service, attentive and friendly. Wonderful food and wine. Definitely recommend! Beautiful setting.
A lovely restaurant in a beautiful area of Calgary. The ambiance and character of the house is outstanding.
Good food but not told kitchen closes at 2 pm on Sunday so with a 1:30 reservation wanted to bring appetizer and meal together.
Excellent as always!
The overall service and experience was wonderful, food excellent. Noise was a little loud at sometime. But we would comeback definitely.
Love Bow Valley Ranch, Quality Food, Excellent service and a Beautiful Location .
We celebrated our fiftieth wedding anniversary in the main dining room. I was relieved to see how far apart the tables were, as well as noticing that the fans and ventilation wete working well. Our waiter Mark, provided excellent service and made us both feel welcome and comfortable. The food was delicious and never disappoints us.
My wife and I have been hearing about the great food at Bow Valley Ranch for some time. We went out for Saturday afternoon brunch and the grounds are amazing.
I ordered the House Made Game Meat Burger. It was quite possibly the driest burger I have had in my life. I did not eat the burger.
I was waiting to discuss the burger and send it back but our waiter never made it around to check on us. I had finished my water and soda, my wife had finished her meal (she was happy).
Finally when the waiter came around, I told him about my dissatisfaction with the burger and he came back and asked if I wanted another coke for compensation. Not if he could get me something else? This is a first for me.
Pretty disappointing, we paid the bill and left.
I had a great time with my family. Would recommend and will come back again soon.
Nephew’s 14th bday
Excellent meal as usual! We like the way they have set up the social distanting.
As always, a great experience. The meal was great and the staff were friendly without being intrusive. Excellent service. So happy you’re open again!
Thank you for your kind words & the great score!
Waiter didn’t stop with the pepper when asked and it was too spicy. Tarragon chicken had absolutely NO tarragon sauce/flavour at all. Other than that a basically an unremarkable experience. Less than I expected from BVR.

Had brunch at the restaurant on a Sunday afternoon. Food is delicious and presented so nicely. Love the feel of this old restaurant. Service from all staff is fantastic.
Thank you Angela for your kind words!
Overall a good experience, would have been better except for the poor communications. Partially by mask wearing but also some employees English was substandard

$27 express menu. Can't be hungry to dine here-Chicken nicely cooked.BUT very tiny portions soup & Dessert(3 spoons full and it was gone). Easily less than one serving of vegetables-hard/tasteless.
Good morning, Thank you for your feedback - I will pass this on to our staff and see how we can improve in the future.
Bow Valley Ranche is beautifully located and the grounds and building are beautiful. The food is of the highest quality and priced accordingly. Perhaps not a place to dine regularly but great for special occasions.
Thank you Anon for your kind words!
