Great evening once again! Food was outstanding, music was great and our waiter Cameron was superb! Very entertaining evening with all.
Beautiful ambience and delicious food. This is our first choice always for a nice girls lunch
Had anniversary lunch here, service was great. Lots of parking space. Great surroundings, where we walked after lunch. Staff were very friendly. Cost was very reasonable. We had lunchtime special, which was exceptional quality and very reasonably priced(included free coffee).
The food was outstanding. We found, however, the noise level was incredibly high and distracting, even though the area in which we were dining was not full. I would not call the noise level 'energetic' as described but absolutely overwhelming at times. The first waiter with whom we were seated, Rich, was outstanding. Unfortunately, when we asked if we could move due to the noise level, (we were sitting beside a large group) Rich was no longer our server. Unfortunate. The second waiter was not nearly as professional, appearing as if in a hurry, short of time and insincere. The timing of the meal was off as well. In all honesty, this restaurant has been a real draw for me, but I don't think I will go back based on our experience. My two friends were also taken aback by the noise level and the behaviour of the waiter. Sad. A great place in so many ways.
Reliably excellent food and service in a fantastic setting.
Absolutely excellent. Outstanding service and food.
A great experience. The staff was amazing the food was unbelievable and the atmosphere was beyond expectations.
The Bow Valley Ranche is spectacular in winter. You immerse into another world. The restored interior kept adds a lot to the experience, but what sets it apart is the holiday decor and the music. The food was spectacular, particularly their elk tartare specialty. Great service.
Amazing food! Amazing service! A majestic setting for just about any occasion! Loved it. Thank you. Will be back for sure. Loved the Christmas decor. Really out did themselves 😊
Wonderful food as always. Some music in the background would have been good.
Awesome food and service
We had a fantastic time at the Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant. The staff is very professional and the ambience is so special to get you in the festive spirit. Not enough words for the food. Thank you!
great location and ambience, not great value for money.
Always so elegant.
Lovely place to have a relaxing lunch. Music was very soothing to the sole.
Great food, service, and atmosphere. We will be back!
Unreal food and service!! Will absolutely go back
Service and food were great as usual. The surf & turf for two is well worth the price for quality and good portions.
Had a fantastic date, Yes on the expensive side but is well worth it.
Great dining experience. Lovely environment and setting.
Outstanding experience, outstanding service (we had Cameron as our waiter - wonderful gentleman) and unbelievable food! We will definitely be back - perhaps weekly!
The Ranche is our favourite Calgary restaurant. The food and service is always predictably excellent. We take our out of town visitors here, and have celebrated graduations, birthdays, anniversaries, and date nights here. We love it!
Enjoyed a fantastic meal for our anniversary. Service was paced well for us as we were enjoying a rare night out - did not feel rushed, time between courses allowed us to savour & digest. The butternut squash voulet was fantastic, as was the beef tenderloin & vegetable Wellington. All delicious! Save room for dessert - the Death by Chocolate is to die for!!! The main dining room was louder than we would have liked so we had to talk at full volume to hear one another but it was just a full house that evening so there wasn’t anything that could have been done about it. We will definitely be back!
we have been to Bow Valley Ranch many times and for many occasions beautiful place great food and wonderful atmosphere great service just an all around great place to go and eat and enjoy
Wonderful evening out! Hadn’t been in a few years but glad we rediscovered it.
We brought our Mother in for Afternoon Tea. It was phenomenal. We we're very happy with the meal and my Mother was very impressed! Thank you for helping make her day so special. 😃
Excellent food, wonderful service and great atmosphere - even on a cold Tuesday evening.
I liked everything about the night except the ending where the waiter did not seem to appreciate the $20 tip I left. I consider $20 a decent amount and should be greeted with appreciation. If servers think people are going to be happy drinking wine inflated 300% above value and then expected to tip on top of that they are sadly mistaken.
Great Services and Food. I will come back again for sure.
Beside my wife's cooking, this was the best food we've tasted in a long, long time. It made us go "Oh my goodness," roll our eyes, and laugh out loud. Beautiful presentation. Staff was attentive and friendly, but very professional. Atmosphere was accepting. I would have felt comfortable in jeans or a suit.
Great brunch. Lots of different choices to make everyone happy! We all had
Eggs Benedict ...traditional, spinach, etc. Excellent. Service was very good.
Can't beat the atmosphere.
It was wonderful! We were celebrating our 2nd Anniversary and the restaurant surprised us with a special dessert. The whole experience was wonderful!
Great food. Great service. Fairly expensive.
Amazing experience at The Ranche. Staff were amazing, service was incredible and food was outstanding! Would highly recommend this place.
Simply amazing. Delicious food options and fantastic mimosas ;)
Great food and service , nice atmosphere
Everything was delicious from the salad to the surf and turf for two. Tried bone marrow for the first time, so yummy and dessert was exquisite.
This place has been on my list to eat at for a long time. I finally made it with family that were in town visiting. Everyone was initially impressed with the visual of the place as we walked up to the restaurant. It’s so beautiful! Everything from then one was top notch. The service, food, and ambience were wonderful. Our waiter, Cameron, was excellent. And he loved telling us about the history of the house. He even took us on a tour of the upstairs rooms after dinner, as we were one of the last tables there. We were even lucky enough to have an experience with the resident ghost, Charlie! We will be back again!!!
Love this place & the staff!
