Steak and Eggs
Alberta striploin, 'sunny side up' eggs, sarladaise potato, bacon, veal jus and grilled mini pretzel bun
Driview Farms Eggs Benedict

The beef selection we had was very salty perhaps because of the gravy.
Service was not as good as in the past maybe new people being trained?
50th birthday celebration for my brother. Dana took very good care of us attending to our every need and letting us dictate the pace of dining. Thank you for the King chair for the bday boy, and honoring the request of fire side. Thank you for the tour.
We came here to celebrate my Husbands birthday. I had requested to be seated by the fireplace and they were very accommodating. Our server was there quickly to welcome us and provide us with dinner and drink menus. After placing our drink order he came back to take our food order. When the waiter returned with our drinks he brought us fresh baked bread and butter and it was not too long before our appetizers arrived. My husbands soup was nice and hot and my salad was amazing. We had a nice break between till our main course arrived. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the vegetables were nicely cooked with still some crunch to them. For desert we shared the crème brûlée which was perfect as we were stuffed from before. We didn’t feel rushed once we were done we were able to just sit and visit with the others that had joined us for dinner that evening.
If I have only one thing to criticize would be the cost for drinks. I know this is not only at Bow Valley Ranch but many restaurants these days but I feel 15+$ for a cocktail or glass of wine is extremely high.
Overall great night was had and we will be returning in the future.

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!
