    When making the reservation through Open Table, we mentioned it was our 50th wedding anniversary and hoped we could have a “romantic table” on the deck. Instead of having a “reserved sign” on a great spot, we were asked “did we want inside or outside”, then we had to request a different table than where they wanted to sit us. Was there a breakdown in the system? Then we waited for 15 minutes before anyone started “serving” us. We were seriously considering leaving. However, once serving started, the service, food, and experience was terrific.

    Note: It was NOT busy. It took 45 minutes to get a charcuterie board delivered as an appetizer. Two orders of the chicken bruschetta had dried, stringy, burnt chicken. The hamburger was also dried up andburnt. It got wrapped up to bring home to the dog. We did not bother complaining because it took so long to get any food, what was the point? We were hungry and just wanted to leave. But since we were still hungry from such poor food we decided to try dessert. Three choices and they were out of the one we wanted, the gelato. So we went for the chocolate wafer concoction. Don't bother. Not that tasty and a total mess to try and eat. Two hundred dollars later for four people and only one alcoholic beverage, we left, never to return.

    One salmon dish out of 4 and one chicken were burned. The salmon had so much seasoning it was inedible. Both items were replaced and were well done. Why would the chef send out food that was burned ? These were not jerk salmon or chicken dishes. I hope the chef didn’t think it was worth a shot as we were seniors.

    We went to celebrate my husband's birthday. Amazing food and service. Daniel, our waitor, was very friendly, knowledgeable on the wine variety and the menue and very patient on explaining us the menue. All dishes care carefully prepared to perfection. We had a chocolate pastry desert that was perfectly paired with awesome rich coffee! Would totally go back! It was the perfect evening date!

    We made our reservation online requesting outdoor seating days before we went because we know they have a beautiful deck facing the water. Upon arrival I requested eating outside and we were shown to a table along the wall of the building rather than on the deck near the water. There were several tables empty along the waters edge. I asked Ithe hostess if we could be seated there but was told it was for some reservations still coming. During the time we were there other people were seated in less desirable locations and the tables out front remained empty until people asked their server to move them. We were disappointed with our seats and that put a negative spin on our evening. Our steaks were cooked perfectly, and the sides were good although very small. Desserts were disappointing and we returned two because they were not fresh and had a strange flavor.

    Service was slow as they seemed to only have one server on the patio. Further, the charcuterie board (>$30) was pathetic with 6 pieces of meat, 3 small pieces of cheese and 4 small slices of pickles. It was one of the saddest charcuterie boards I’ve ever seen. :(

    We enjoyed our evening and we like this restaurant for location mostly. The salad with salmon was over dressed and tough. The veg was over cooked. Food is somewhat mediocre. If this could be improved it would be a gem!

    I initially tried to book a reservation online on my phone, but the formatting on the website with the #ofppl overlapped with the “find table” button which disallowed me to hit the “find table” button. Annoyed with the formatting, I figured, “let’s just go and see what it’s like!” I’ve been waiting to try this spot out, so I was excited to check it out. We went around 3:00pm, and were told that they were not accepting walk-ins, only reservations, despite them only having 5 tables with customers. I asked if they had space for an hour because we would happily leave before the dinner rush, but they again told me that they were only accepting reservations despite their space. So, I went online and booked a reservation for 3:30pm (they had multiple times open from 3:00pm - 5:00pm). The manager was frustrated that I booked one but said that she had to honour it since it was a reservation. I was a bit shocked by her treatment towards us because I’ve worked in multiple restaurants, but everyone has their days. When we sat down, our waiter was great, and we were really happy with his service. However, when we went to order food, we were told that they were not taking food orders and that the front should have told us that. We were not aware that was the case, so we were a bit disappointed with the management of the situation. The waiter, again, was awesome and went back to ask the kitchen if they could put a small order through for us, even though we said it was fine. Other tables ordered food before & after us, so it was a bit odd, but maybe I really ticked the manager off? It was just an odd situation. When we got our food, the watermelon salad and coconut shrimp, the watermelon salad was mostly arugula, olive oil, and watermelon. We’ve been to lots of restaurants across Calgary, and this was one of our least favourite experiences. I’d go back for the beautiful outdoor setting, but not for the food or management. With all that said, our actual server was fantastic.

    Our date night at Seasons was wonderful. The service was very good and the food (we had the tenderloin) was amazing. Regrettably 2/3 of the way in, a family with children was seated right beside us and they would not manage their kids who were running around and literally screaming while the adults drank their faces off. I recommend to anyone, but if you are trying to have an adult night out, make sure to request a private table away from such nonsense.

    We celebrated my husbands birthday with another couple. It was a dreary, rainy long weekend Sunday night and we ended up being the only customers after others left. It was really enjoyable not having to talk over a crowd. Despite the weather, the view onto the lagoon and the gorgeous hanging flowers baskets was truly lovely. Daniel, our server, was most attentive, friendly and provided excellent service. The food was fresh, home made and delicious. We didn't realize the restaurant closed an hour after we arrived. Daniel kept assuring us that we didn't have to rush and encouraged us to simply enjoy ourselves. We definitely plan to return and highly recommend Seasons of Bowness Park.

    Great restaurant right inside Bowness. We were hoping to sit out on the beautiful deck but due to weather had to sit inside, which was just fine as inside is very cute and has a nice ambiance. Friendly, courteous staff who had no trouble accommodating our large group or various dietary restrictions.

    I have eaten many times at Seasons over the years and have always had very good food. I don't know if they lost their chef over the covid pandemic??? The food was not up to par. I had salmon and it was overcooked. The dessert with mille feuille that was hard as a rock! Obviously the chef had no idea what he/she was doing. I won't be going back until I hear that the food quality is back to what you should expect from any restaurant. Too bad as this is one of the best restaurant locations in Calgary.

    Servers seemed determined to have us retirees use their on-table menu QRcode instead of recognizing our discomfort and simply bringing out some pre-printed menus. Next time I will ask for the menu upfront, and be prepared to leave.... just on principle. Food was great, as was shade on the deck. A little pricey, but given what we are experiencing, the prices didn't bother me.

    The venue is beautiful and the service is good. I was disappointed that the gumbo I ordered, although really tasty, only had a tiny piece of sausage and no prawns. Our server returned when asked with a bowlful of sauce, two tiny shrimp and two more pieces of sausage. When paying a premium for a good dining experience, I expect better.
