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.
Absolutely amazing food and great personal service. We have never not enjoyed a meal here! So glad that it’s so close to home and local.
Food was very tasty. I had the fish and what came with it was very very tasty. Would have it again.
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!
Excellent service, wonderful lamb chops, & delicious crème brûlée!
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.
Ed and Marcella have a wonderful restaurant!! We always enjoy going there!
Absolutely perfect experience! Delicious, fresh food and fantastic wine list. Service was impeccable and attentive! 100%recommend!
Will return again!
First time here, celebrated our 20th Anniversary, loved every thing about our experience, the atmosphere, the food was amazing, looking forward to to going back.
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.
Excellent food, would he so much nicer if the decor was updated
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!!
Well worth the value and a most relaxing and enjoyable meal! We will return
The has been awhile since we have eaten at the Bistro, it was excellent and once this virus has ended we will be back.
Amazing! Loved the food, loved the feel, loved the people! We will be back for sure!!

This is the most incredible, small, intimate French Bistro. I cannot express in words the delicious-ness of the food you will experience, but the service is top knotch!

10/10 would recommend
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!
Awesome place for a relaxing meal with amazing food. Small and cozy, like many French bistros and Bistro 1882 is spot on. Will be going back.
So delicious. A real gem of a restaurant in a beautiful spot.
Food was ok certainly nothing special and overpriced we thought
Great food and service! Very large portion -worth the money!
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
Absolutely mouth watering
Fantastic food, and even better service. By far the best restaurant in Okotoks.
The food was delicious and the service was exceptional and friendly. The beef bourgignon was especially outstanding in flavour and tenderness. Will definitely go again!
100% recommend, will be going back! Food was absolutely amazing as was the service.
Lovely evening excellent food and service. Really enjoyed how knowledgeable the owner is.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. It is a family-owned restaurant and it is obvious that there is a lot of interest in caring for the customers. We will be back!
This historical building is a lovely setting for a fantastic restaurant. The service was outstanding, the food was exceptional and the value was fantastic. I would highly recommend a visit to Bistro 1882!
Tried this place for the first time last night it’s ran by a husband and wife. They actually care about what they put on your table to eat. It felt so personal and cosy. The food was amazing!!! You have a life long customer in me.
My favourite restaurant in Okotoks. Will definitely go again!
Excellent hospitality from the moment we walked in. Our server was very professional and courteous, ensuring we had a most wonderful dinner. The food was flavourful, rich, very enjoyable. I plan on going back to enjoy good food in a relaxed environment.
