Francis was very polite and attentive to us. The food was excellent.
Always a great experience and amazing menu
Service was good however server was far too busy. Had 2 appetizers (beet salad and Carpaccio) which were excellent, 2 Entrees, the Lamb sirloin was also excellent but the Seared Scallops were extremely disappointing (not fresh [smelled] and overcooked). While they did offer to replace, by the time the server was able to approach the table, the other entree was almost finished and replacement by that time wasn’t appropriate. It must be noted our previous visits have been excellent, including orders of the scallops.
This place never disappoints, great food and excellent service!
The most amazing food and cocktails. We ordered appetizers as well so staff was extremely well as pacing our food as it came out. Unbelievable service and food. Absolutely amazing!
Everything was excellent including service, ambiance, food
Thank you for following the vaccine & masking requirements! A lovely birthday dinner with exceptional service, excellent food, great ambience and an overall special experience.
This was a pleasant place to dine and can’t wait to return. Thank you
Express lunch was fantastic. Love the salmon.
We had a great time. The service was excellent and they allowed to dine at the pace we wanted. The meals were very good.
Each dish is plated beautifully and the food was amazing. Excellent place for a special occasion or a more upscale dinner
The mussels and charcuterie appetizers were excellent but my halibut entre was extremely overdone and dry and my friend’s medium rare beef tenderloin was raw in the centre.
THE BEST beef tenderloin I’ve ever had.
Everything was delicious.
I appreciate it the Covid restrictions and the friendliness of the staff. Thank you for a safe and lovely patio experience
Delicious food, superb presentation, excellent service
Brilliant afternoon at the Ranche. Staff were exceptional. Thank you!
Our visit to Bow Valley Ranch was OK. We had to wait 1 hour for the meal but were compensated with a 20% reduced bill, it worked out OK.
As always, the staff at the Bow Valley Ranch have delivered another amazing dining experience. A friend and I went for lunch on Sept 28 and it was perfect. The food, the service, the ambiance - all 2nd to none. We also enjoyed a lovely drive and walk to the restaurant; enjoying the fall colors. I highly recommend Bow Valley Ranche for all of your lunch and dinner dining.
Amazing scenery, Great Service and the food was excellent. Our server went above and beyond & we will be back without a doubt.
Excellent food as usual. Noise level was high and the service was a little slow due to a wedding party and Sunday crowds, but the staff did a good job.
Our meals were excellent.
Had to ask for coffee refill - EVERY coffee refill. Got two.
Food came, no quality check. Quality check when plates cleared.
Waited with no plates & empty cups for 30 minutes and our waitress surfaced and asked if we needed anything. She had forgotten to bring us our bill.
Thanks to the chef for our great meal we had its always amazing .
And thanks to the serving staff to always make sure we got everything we need .
A birthday dinner for my wife. Fabulous. We enjoyed a buffalo /Neptune dinner for 2.
It was an extravaganza of flavors and textures. With scallops, halibut, shrimp, mussels and of course Buffalo. It was a thoroughly enjoyable feast. Our complements to the Chef and staff.
We enjoyed a beautiful and delicious meal out on the front patio.
Birthday. Waitress brought her a small piece if cake which we all shared
We had Moules & Frites to start - fantastic. Both ordered the tenderloins for our main course - also fantastic. Perfectly cooked and excellent sides. Overall a really nice experience, amazing food and a perfect date night!
Great service - location and service amazing. Nice extra touches for anniversary event
I love to eat at this restaurant in their dining room. In today’s world where everything is fast this restaurant slows down. They don’t rush you through so you can enjoy the ambience and the wonderful food. If you want a relaxed dining experience with great staff and delicious food, this is your place.
Amazing time, efficient service, excellent cuisine!
Very good food , nice service, very clean , nice atmosphere, Thank You!!
Food was fantastic. The service was excellent! We’ll be back again. Absolutely loved it! Great place to celebrate birthdays with a loved one.
We love this restaurant, service is always great and food amazing. We will miss it terrible, but unfortunately we heard that this restaurant made decision to discriminate unvaccinated people and go with vax passport.
That’s mean we are not welcome anymore.
Food was excellent. Service was ok. Ambience was very nice and the noise level not to bad.
Enjoyed our lunch. It was a beautiful Fall day. Sat out on the lovely patio. Food was fabulous so was the service. We love this place!
What a wonderful place to have a special dinner. We sat by a window overlooking the back garden. Our server was very attentive and pleasant as were the other staff ensuring our water was refilled, finished dishes were promptly cleared away, etc. The food was very good, We had the halibut and scallops for main dishes. The scallops were a bit salty but were cooked fine, the halibut was very tasty. Overall very good.
We started with the beet salad, it was excellent.
Our main course was very mediocre.
Our server was lovely.
The food and service were great, the building and location make it very romantic.
However, you are not fully able bodied this restaurant poses several barriers and challenges.
We brought our 4 month old in his stroller. The tables in the large dining hall were close together and it was challenging to get his stroller through and then once we found a spot for him in the stroller (too young for a high chair) we were asked to move it for fire reasons - this was annoying, since the room we were eating in didn't get very full. Our impression was that our options were to put our baby right on the floor or hold him the entire time.
My husband and I used two different washrooms, which were not on the main floor. The washroom I used did not have a place to change our baby. Entrance transitions were not smooth and would prove an addition barrier if you were able to get your assistive device up the few front stairs.
Lots of perks to eating here if you are able bodied. I was impressed with the kids menu, taste-quality-presentation of the food were excellent and level of service we received was timely and friendly. Disheartened by the barriers we faced having a stroller and a small baby.
