Took my friend for her birthday lunch. We had an amazing lunch. We all ordered the three course lunch menu. We all had the fish and it was cooked perfectly!!
I never disappoint every time I bring a friend for special occasion.
As always, I will be coming back.

Dinner went great, very nice place we certainly will be back. Unfortunately that night was my wife’s birthday and I ordered in advance (through OpenTable) a small cake for her and it never happened. Probably miscommunication between restaurant and OpenTable, but something to improve for sure guys.

We had an enjoyable time. The only thing we found strange was they asked if it was a special occasion and we said yes our 30th anniversary. We had our meal but there was nothing extra for the anniversary so didn’t understand why they asked at the restaurant and when I booked it.
The food was good but expensive for what we got.
The best was the server Guillame

I took my teenage son for brunch and we had such a great experience!! The ambience is lovely- everything you would hope a character mansion turned restaurant would be. I asked to move to the veranda when a table opened up, and I am so glad I did. The smell of flowers, fresh air and still being well covered from the elements makes it perfect outdoor seating. Mikayla was fantastic, she was friendly and accommodating, an excellent server. :)
I ordered the asparagus and prosciutto- omg. Perfectly cooked, excellent ingredients- everything down to the side potatoes and fruit salad was perfection. It’s a must try. My son had the game burger and the look on his face after the first bite was priceless. :) We couldn’t resist taking a look at the dessert menu and sharing the chocolate mousse. It is as delicious as it looks.
Well done BVRR! I will most certainly be back!

What a treat after being so restricted for so long. Brunch on the patio was scrumptious and everyone bent over backwards to make the whole experience feel completely Covid-friendly. Make sure you give them a visit soon and support special local businesses like this.

Great food but a little pricy for the surf and turf. 2 shrimp, 4 oysters, 2 scallops, 2 small pieces of salmon teaspoon size and about 10 slices of bison the size of a ticket and tons if vegetables for 95.00. Maybe take 20.00 off of that or at least add a bit more seafood.

We live nearby and were hoping to make this a regular outing, however we were sorely disappointed in the food. The halibut was over cooked and the strip loin was marbled and tough. Overall the flavour was fine, but definitely not worth the big sticker price. I doubt we’ll return with the selection of fantastic restaurants to choose from in Calgary.

We were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary. The food was delicious. The staff were attentive but allowed us to take our time to enjoy each course. When we were too full for dessert our waitress brought us two melt-in-your-mouth chocolate truffles with a white chocolate ‘Happy Anniversary’ note....a very lovely ending to a special evening.

As usual we had another amazing dining experience at Bow Valley Ranch. The service given by Dana was exemplary. It is always a pleasure to be served by her. Each dish looked appetizing and tasted wonderful, showing a great respect by the chef for each ingredient on the plate with the combination of flavours. We will look forward to our next visit.

It's our first time dining at this restaurant and we had a wonderful experience. The game meat burgers we ordered were so juicy and tender. The service was very good and we were particularly impressed by our server, "Mikayla". She's pleasant, attentive and personable. Mikayla definitely made our experience so much more enjoyable.

We love this restaurant and have been here before. This time around, from the time we sat down to the time we started eating it took about an hour and a half. The service was wonderful but the kitchen was slow. The food was delicious but for the small amount of people dining alongside us, there shouldn’t have been a reason why the kitchen was so slow.
Other than that, it was a pleasant experience with delicious food.
