Arrived and were seated right away but the location, couch in particular, was very soft and low. We asked for another table which was accommodated. Our service was fine, food was very good. All in all, we had a very enjoyable evening.

We fought through a snowstorm on Tuesday night to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. I had forgotten again but the restaurant, on the recommendation of a friend saved the day.
Thank you

We went for a dinner date and brought along our 1 year old. The staff were fantastic and brought out a book and a plastic cup for our daughter. The meal was delicious and good value for being in Bragg Creek.

Loved the atmosphere, even though there was a family on the other side of the restaurant with 4 or 5 young children making lots of noise. Chose one of the specials for dinner and it wasn't great. Would definitely go back and try a menu item.

Great food and great, friendly service.

Menu is diverse but not overwhelming with choices.

Great flavor, good portions and very good presentation.

Quiet restaurant allows for conversation. The country atmosphere is great and the seating is cozy, feels like fine dinning at home.

Our server was Francesca, excellent service and smiled all the time, we were happy to have her.
Been there once before (on the 11th.) and yesterday (20th) took my husband to celebrate his birthday,
we had the Salmon and I highly recommend it, one word to describe it: DELICIOUS!!!
Thank you, we will comeback:)

Great food with great service. It’ll be our new stop when we go out for a hike or walk in Bragg Creek. No reason to drive back to Calgary to find a good place to finish the night.

We had a wonderful meal with our family visiting from the UK, whenever they are in town, it's our go to restaurant, it's well worth the drive from Okotoks

The food was delicious as were our beverages, an excellent selection of wines and spirits

Our server Josh was delightful, very polite and thoughtful and attentive.

Well done Italian Farmhouse

My husband and I went for dinner on New Years Eve and enjoyed our dinner very much. Great service,could have skipped the 4 th course as the portions were large. Only complaint was that my dessert was frozen hard as a rock...even for a fork, but the cherries were yummy.

A lovely space and the food was terrific. Quite expensive though. We had an appetizer and dessert to share and a main course. my friend had coffee and we split the bill. $35+ for lunch. Certainly lovely but not an often sort of place.

One of the dishes that we rave about to all of our fiends and say that must order is the bruschetta. We were told that the tomatoes were not in season and was not available on December 23. Odd, we had it this time last year. Huge disappointment for our party as we graze with appetizers for our lunch.

A great place filled with ambiance. The food is delicious. Just know that the food takes a while to come. The server and hostess warned us but if you are in a rush or with young kids... it really does take a long time.

We have always counted on The Italian Farmhouse for great food and service. Our experience this time was not what we have been accustomed to in the past and we were fairly disappointed. Service was extremely poor...there were 6 in our party, 4 which arrived first; ordered drinks and appies and then 2 who arrived about 15 minutes later. Our appies took some time to appear (about 20 minutes after all of us were there) and the server had to be reminded that there were 2 more bodies at the table that needed drinks. We were surprised to see the olives (appetizers) had changed from all olives to a mix of other things (our mistake for not reading the description since the last time we had been there). The entrees were fair...broccoli was under cooked and cold for our taste, pasta dishes just mediocre at best and the duck was again mediocre. I guess if you were visiting for the first time it would be impressive but just not what we are accustomed to being long time patrons. Maybe it was an off night...which is to be expected...we can't all be perfect 100% of the time...but it also wasn't particularly busy for a Thursday night. Will it stop us from coming?...definitely not...was it a "memorable" early Christmas dinner with family....DEFINITELY NOT! Here's to a better experience in 2019!! I would still HIGHLY recommend The Italian Farmhouse and put this one visit up to a "one of".

Excellent food, ambience and service. Our waitress amazing. Even another waitress who instantly turned around when she heard my partner drop his knife. She was there and picked it up before he did and she replaced with a cleanone.
We cannot say enough about the Restaurant and Staff.
