Great service, tasty food, good value wine list. Tried each of the appetizers and were impressed with the quality, execution and flavors. Al Fresco dining was comfortable and dockside. A pleasant oasis between Bowness and Tuscany in the NW. Highly recommended

Booked in for a casual dinner with a friend not knowing what to expect. All I can say is that we both left thoroughly impressed. Service was wonderful; our server was very friendly and helpful when choosing appetizers and entrees. Food was delicious. I will definitely be back as I feel that this is a hidden gem.

Also, extremely impressed with their COVID protocols.

No dining ambience could be better than the quiet rustic open air deck at Seasons at Bowness Park. The service was competent and friendly and not intrusive. The distancing restrictions were effective but not noticeably oppressive. A perfect spot for a warm summer evening.

Excellent food and service. Some individuals were not respecting social distancing and felt it was ok to wander around the patio to take pictures. Staff should have taken control of the situation and ask them to return to their seats.

Seasons of Bowness Park
Responded on August 3, 2020

Thanks for the feedback Deb. While we try our best to keep control of such a difficult time and to keep our guests and staff safe, occasionally things like guests moving around the patio to take photos gets overlooked. We certainly wouldn't allow it if they were disrespecting social distancing rules however snapping a few family photos with such a wonderful background has become commonplace at Seasons. It really is difficult to add that to the long list of rules already imposed due to Covid.

I was treating my friend to a special birthday lunch. When we arrived we were taken outside to a high table in the sun. We saw empty tables wth low chairs in the shade but we’re told they were reserved. My friend was very upset, repeatedly saying to the gal who showed us outside we too had reservations, and no she cannot climb the high chairs. We had choices to leave or go inside on the beautiful sunny day, no t-storm as has been the regular weather. My friend was upset, not the memorable experience I had wanted. Unfortunately, when I reserved online I wasn’t able to request a table With low chairs outside in the shade. Our server was excellent, food was very good. Next time I will phone the restaurant directly with verbal instructions.

I'm so sorry you met with challenges during your visit. We are trying our best to make sure everyone has a comfortable experience particularly during this time. While it's true, we don't allow reservations on our patio we do recognize the importance for everyone to sit outside during the pandemic. When we see the weather is patio perfect, we preassign all reservations to patio tables. This doesn't always allow us to know who can sit at a high table. Calling ahead will help us considerably.

After we were finally seated (stood at hostess stand over 10 minutes while the poor staff scrambled to seat guests, take orders, deliver drinks, and run food) we got a table outdoors. Beautiful setting - calm, with the lake and wildlife, families canoeing by - and tables at least 6 feet apart. Servers wore masks and ensured you understood protocol.
The food was so delicious! We shared the arancini appetizer (rice and cheese, breaded and fried...how can you go wrong), half chicken entree, and tenderloin entrée. Everything was delicious and service was wonderful.
We have a perfect time!

Fantastic menu, fresh local ingredients, creative interpretation of cuisine. The surroundings are magical. The servers are attentive and friendly. The coziness of the restaurant itself has been diminished by the need to rearrange the furniture to address COVID concerns; however, the ambiance is still warm and inviting.

We ate out on the balcony overooking the channel mainly because it was to windy to sit on the area that overlooks the lagoon. Watching ducks, geese and humans enjoying the evening really added to the enjoyment. We even saw the resident beaver! The staff were all great, the food was fabulous, and the bill was much less than a similar meal would have been at similar restaurants in Calgary.

Thanks for the feed back, we appreciate it. We made a decision to re-open with a relatively small menu in an effort to keep everything fresh amidst all the uncertainty. Our kitchen has done a wonderful job of covering most areas of interest for diners. The watermelon salad with arugula, feta cheese, kalamata olives & mint is a popular item, particularly on the patio on warm days. I'll verify the portion size with the kitchen to make sure it is still going to the table as costed.
