UPDATE FROM BISTRO 1882

Hello, hope everyone is staying healthy and safe. We will open Tuesday, February 9th for evening dining only. We are a very small, family run restaurant that never rushes our customers due to our 1 seating per table per night policy. We will be open on Sunday February 14th for Valentine’s evening. We have a set menu that will be up shortly. The Bistro can also accommodate small private gatherings, at anytime, with private dining on a case by case basis. Please call 403-938-2224. We always answer the phone. Please call for reservations or book on OpenTable.

Thank You,

Marcella, Ed, Maya, Martin, Luke

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful birthday dinner here on Saturday. Outside dining only, but we had a very cosy dinner on the patio. Service was excellent, food excellent and highly recommend a night out here.

PLEASE DON'T TELL ANYONE ABOUT THIS PRECIOUS GEM!
Seriously, our Secret Date Night location... with the great light jazz music and some of the tables singing to Sinatra!

Alright, let it out of the bag. But leave some Brochetta for us!

So nice to be back at Bistro 1882!
We each ordered different dishes from the varied supper menu and each entree was spectacular in its presentation . The meals were delicious! And dessert and coffee rounded out the evening.
The service was excellent as has always been our experience when we dine there.
Covid precautions are taken very seriously and we felt very comfortable in their restaurant environment.
I would highly recommend Bistro 1882!

Delicious food. Friendly, personable service. A refreshing change from the chain restaurants where you’re often just a “number.” A husband and wife team that are doing an excellent job. Would highly recommend for the ambience and food! A wonderful evening!

Our new favorite place. The food was amazing and the owner / waiter was superb. You could tell he was beyond proud of his wife's (the chef) cooking and the restaurant they run together. Highly recommend and will be back for sure.

Bistro is our favourite restaurant for special occasions. The food is delicious, well prepared and presented. The owner is your waiter and his wife is the chef. We love the ambiance of the old building too. Wonderful to have an upscale restaurant in Okotoks.

A special last night out before lockdown. The overall experience was outstanding! We had beef bourguignon and the special- pacific salmon which were both done to perfection. The service was very good. Well done!!

Best service we've ever recieved. Hands down. We were able to take our time, as they are only doing one seating per table per night. We had a fabulous date night, quiet and personal. The food was good all round. We left satisfied with the entire experience!

Absolutely amazing food with great service. We dine out often and both of our meals were the best we've had in a very long time. We will definitely be back, especially for the Slow cooked and richly decadent Beef Bourguignon
