We enjoyed our friend’s birthday lunch in the sunshine at Seasons. We enjoyed the mussels and seafood.
I had phoned to ask specifically for a small dessert for the birthday gal and this seemed to have been forgotten until I reminded our server twice.

Really like the setting of Seasons, right next the lake. I’m vegetarian and the menu didn’t show many vegetarian options, but they kindly created a delicious pasta dish for us. And the waitress was very friendly and polite.

We had a very nice meal with excellent & attentive service. The quimoa salad with chicken was quite ample but the beer battered cod fillet was skimpy although tasty. Would recommend they add an option for having a second fillet with the fish & chips. Cheesecake dessert very good but small for sharing.

Delicious. I’d rather pay for one perfect meal than a couple of so-so ones. Steak was cooked to perfection! Watermelon salad was fresh. While chocolate mousse was rich and creamy. And that’s just my meal!!

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.

Thanks for the comments, we appreciate the feedback. We took great consideration when creating the post closure menu, knowing that we would still be in the state of pandemic and not knowing if we would have guests. Having a menu that was both smaller in size and approachable for guests was important to us. We do feel we managed this nicely however if there are particular items you think we should have another look at we would be happy to do so. Feel free to email us directly.
