Wonderful meal in the lovely atmosphere of the old church. Very relaxing, no feeling of being hurried.
Fantastic anniversary celebration! Service was impeccable, food was outstanding. When we moved to Okotoks a couple of years ago we hoped we’d find “our place” and we did. We will be back again for sure!
Kristi, This is so sweet, thank you. We are so glad you had a wonderful celebration and we would be honoured to be 'your place'. We hope we will see you more often than just. your anniversary!
Excellent friendly service. Food was fabulous. Great place to visit with a friend or business lunch.
WOW the food, service and ambiance were great. Such a warm and friendly atmosphere with staff and owners who obviously pride what they do. What a great menu too! We'll be back!

I had walked past this wonderful place many times and wondered what it was like. I got to go there yesterday and was stunned at the beauty of it inside. MY food was fabulous and the service great. I will definitely be going back again. It is a beautiful setting......
Maggie, I wonder how many people wonder as you did? We are so pleased you were pleasantly surprised when you came in and were able to enjoy a wonderful meal. It was truly our pleasure to meet you and we are thankful you chose to visit us. We hope we will see you again soon!
It was our 54th anniversary and Heartland was recommended by our son and daughter in law, who live in Okotoks. The whole time there was wonderful, the table, the service, the food, and the atmosphere....just what we had hoped for. My dinner had plenty of vegetables and the chicken melted in my mouth. Awesome in all.
Judith, Thank you for celebrating your anniversary with us, we always find it to be a huge honor to be selected for such a momentous event! Congrats, and you know we all want to know, what is the secret to 54 years of marriage? We hope to see you for your 55th anniversary!
In a way simple and still different. Well prepared and tasty.
A balanced menu for a nice evening out.
Martinus, Thank you for your review, when you select the best ingredients, even the simplest of meals are more incredible! Thank you for choosing us, we hope we will see you again soon!
Wonderful experience at the heartland cafe! 10/10 would recommend!
Anonymous, Thank you! I only wish we had 10 star ratings just for you! Thank you for choosing the Heartland Cafe & Restaurant, we so appreciate your visit!
I have dined at the Heartland Cafe twice, both for lunch and both times my experience has been outstanding. The servers are incredible and the food is absolutely without a doubt fantastic!
Doreen1, Thank you, thank you! Our team puts so much passion and care into serving our guests that we love when you appreciate it! We hope to see you again and thank you for supporting us and choosing us !
We had a lovely evening with a great server. We enjoyed the soup, (pumpkin and tomato basil), bread, and beet salad. We were disappointed with the gnocchi, it was overly salted, cold and very chewy. I was looking forward to trying this dish but will not recommend it or have again. We both ordered a large glass of wine and I had pieces of residue in the bottom of my glass, a little off putting.
DMEKT, Thank you for leaving us a review, we want all guests to have a wonderful experience when visiting us and while we are grateful you enjoyed the soup and salad so much, we wish your whole meal was just as incredible. Please send us a message, we would love to be able to explore what may have happened and use your help to improve in the future!
Always good food, and service. Have dined there 3 times now, and really like it.

Annie, Awe, thank you for all of your kind words and leaving us such a wonderful review. Our biggest appreciation comes when you choose us as your place to dine out, so thank you!
We wanted a really nice evening to celebrate our Anniversary and it was just lovely.. our dinner was delicious, best Caesar Salad ever, our beef was perfect and the vegetables were so flavorful !! Great ambiance, and the biggest surprise was the "friendly, sincere service" we received, far out did any restaurant in Calgary. So glad we decided to have a wonderful night out at the Heartland with an on the House fabulous dessert for our 50 years together.
Thanks Heartland (:
Linda, It really means that much extra to us when we hear our guests are celebrating a special day and they chose the Heartland to celebrate at. Your table was absolutely wonderful and we were so happy to be celebrating with you! Thank you for all of your kind comments!
Wow!!! The food was amazing. I can't believe it took me this long to try. No more Keg and trips to Calgary. I've found my new favourite place!
STaylor, WOW, thank you!! This is such a wonderful compliment! We are beyond words with gratitude! (sorry to the Keg, yay for us! )
The food and service was amazing.

Lucie, Thank you, we will definitely pass on your kind words, we appreciate your visit and your review so much! Thank you for choosing the Heartland Cafe & Restaurant and we hope to welcome you back again soon!
This is a favourite restaurant, but this visit didn’t reach the level the restaurant in our experience meets. Service was great. Meal was only fair at best. Veggies were poor. Sauces were cold. Better luck next time.
Sorry to hear about your experience Gary, We were unaware there was anything wrong otherwise we would have done everything to correct it, we hope you will visit us again and let us know how we can make this right for you, we want all guests to have a great experience. Please let us know.
Excellent restaurant, good food & excellent service.
It is worth to go a bit further out from Calgary. From the moment you enter you step into a different world, almost like at the turn of the last century. Unforgettable experience.
Babett, What a wonderful comment, we are here daily so it always amazes us to hear how guests first experience our restaurant. Thank you for these memorable words! We hope to see you again soon!
Food was amazing! Great prices, hearty home style comfort in every bite. Wish they had a cocktail menu instead of just a wine list. Also they were playing some odd music, spice girls and I want you to want me, music didn’t fit the environs of the food and the environment. It’s beautiful and I will definitely be back a million times again
Thank you LeahU, We love that you enjoyed your visit so much and enjoyed the food and cocktail list. Thanks for bringing up the music, we try to have a mix list for all ages and ranges of music so we never really know what we will get, there are always gems in the mix group. We would love to welcome you back again! Thank you for choosing us!
The best meal and service in a long time
Thank you LeahH, We are so glad you enjoyed your visit so much and enjoyed the food! We are always so honored that we are chosen for your evening out. We hope to see you again soon!

Heartland Cafe is a distinctly unique experience, set in a unique venue.
This repurposed Church in Okotoks has been tastefully and cleverly converted into a delightful decor and dining destination. The service is friendly and warm. And the food is memorable for all the right reasons. The menu is uncomplicated, offering something for everyone. We cannot speak highly enough about our memorable first visit here other than to say that it will NOT be our last. We will be back; next time with friends so we get to share the experience together.
Thank you for this incredible note! We have worked so hard to make our space a special place for guests to enjoy and celebrate events. We have been fortunate enough to have an incredible Chef that has trained through Europe and brings a special flare to all of our dishes. We look forward to welcoming you and your friends for your next visit!
