    Our dinner for my birthday celebration was fantastic!! I can find no fault with anything. My beau’s pecan chicken melted on your mouth and my tagliatelle with shrimp was so good I couldn’t stop even though I was stuffed! Great place

    Delicious food served in a wonderful location. Service standards very good. Interesting how they manage to transition from a relaxed lunch venue serving soup and sandwiches to an upscale dinner restaurant, serving specials like Burrata with asparagus and an amazingly presented tenderloin for dinner, with white linen service.

    Visited Sat May 20th for lunch with a friend. Made reservation online, immediate confirmation. We were greeted right away from hostess, and seated. The server was friendly, informative and checked on us for coffee refill. Food service was fast. We had soup of the day and sandwich and it was all delicious. I have been here before and my visits were the same quality experience. I highly recommend the Heartland Cafe.

    I am not a stranger to Heartland, I've been there several times over the years but most notably 3 times in the last couple weeks, twice for dinner and once for lunch. What a total gem for Okotoks. In the heart of the old towne plaza, in a gorgeous, warm, inviting old church. I wish this place could be my house lol. Dinner is an entirely different experience than lunch. Totally different menu and ambiance. Lunch is casual, warm, delicious with a more simple menu - my fave has always been the chicken, brie, apple and fig jam sandwich...yum! When you come for dinner it feels like a fine dining experience...more formal table settings, beautiful soft lighting, the waiters are dressed in suits etc. I've eaten in a lot of high end restaurants and Heartland's grilled feta appetizer is my all-time favourite appetizer anywhere. It is to DIE for. PLEASE don't ever take this off your menu! Everyone I've shared it with feels the same. It's unbelievable. I also highly recommend the pecan chicken with sweet potato puree, I used to always order this years ago then it was gone for awhile, but now it's back with a new, more refined and totally delicious spin on it. Delectable. We have had the true pleasure of having Leo as our server for both dinner experiences and he is a true professional as well as friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and super attentive. You will never be waiting for or have to ask for your water glass to be filled. The cocktails are tasty, as are the cappuccinos! Heartland has it all...from small town warmth and character to professionalism, fantastic food, beautiful ambiance, and amazing service...it's the whole package. I hope it's there forever!
