Delicious coffee and great service. Beautiful quiet place ! But poor quality coffee (and no espresso) kind of brings it down.

Upon arrival it was evident that the server was not aware of the seating request by the fireplace area. After a brief conversation with her, and with an outstanding effort on her part, she was able to reconfigure the tables to our request. She apologized emphatically for not reading the request, as I informed her, that I phoned in the previous day to ensure the request would be doable and that the request was written on the open table forum. The service was rare standard outstanding also. Her attention to detail, initiative and communication skills were above reproach, plus her personality oozed confidence and an attractive demeaner. All this said, I gave her a 25% tip. Give this young woman a raise. Outstanding Ambassador for The Bavarian Inn.

The ambiance was warm and inviting. Server was very pleasant but missed a few serving items like a cup for the tea, some silverware and hot (not cold) water for tea.

I had the small Wiener schnitzel and the portion and vegetables were excellent - the schnitzel a bit grisly.

It was our 56 wedding anniversary and I booked a table to celebrate the occasion. In spite of our table
not being ready when we arrived at the reservation time, the wrong meal coming to our table and no bread (they had run out and it was just 7 o’clock ) the meal itself was very good. I might have to think twice about a future reservation.

My parents visited us from Houston and since this is my Mom's fav restaurant around Calgary we came for dinner. We had an amazing time. Excellent food and wine, as always. The ambiance is also fantastic, low piano music makes for a wonderful classy dinner. The staff was super attentive to all our needs and wants. Thank you for a lovely experience. We can't wait to be back very soon.

My husband is originally from Calgary but moved to the US in 2005. Every time we are in town to visit his Mom in Calgary we come to this restaurant. He frequented this restaurant for years before moving. The food is always outstanding and we have always enjoyed our visits there. On this trip our server was outstanding making excellent wine and desert recommendations. We enjoyed it so much we are going back for a second visit before we head back to the US. Wish there was a restaurant like this in Maryland.

It was great, dinner was lovely, our service was pretty good, she seemed to have every table in the place, but was doing the best she could, and she was very pleasant and cheerful
It is a beautiful room, a great escape from Calgary, and the food is just really good.

This was a first date and it was a wonderful experience. The service was just right-leaving us alone but checking in at the right moments. The food was superb. I had the kale Caesar and schnitzel-truly amazing. I could’ve done without the woman next to us watching a loud video on her phone but that was over quickly and no fault of the restaurant. I will definitely return

Sadly our appetizer was extremely cold and had to be returned, and then it took longer than expected to get a replacement. This in turn delayed our main course delivery. We had to ask for things to be removed from the table , including menus, to make space for what was a very good meal. Sadly the lack of an experienced wait staff degraded the dining experience. The pleasantness of our ‘very green’ waitress made up for the overall poor supporting wait staff responsiveness.

Nothing special, dry steak, no consideration or mention by staff or management for our anniversary dinner celebration. Dined at Italian farmhouse next day, much better food and personalized service.

Dear Zack, Thank you for taking the time to review your meal with us last night. We do hope that you brought up your concerns with your server or the manager on the floor at the time. It is much more difficult for us to rectify the situation when we learn about shortcomings after the fact! We hope you will join us again in the future and give us the opportunity to make sure everything is up to standard. Sincerely, Shannon, Assistant Manager at The Bavarian Inn

What more could you want a lovely patio, excellent service and great food on a sunny Sunday?? Food is just excellent here - the new tomato salad with balsamic is excellent. We come for the Weiner Schnitzel it is amazing. Had a wonderful cold Chardonnay to accompany it all. Just perfect...

I’ve been to this restaurant a few times, and the quality seems to have gone down quite a bit. My meat was chewy and the red cabbage was completely bland.

After hiking Prairie Mountain we wanted a celebratory meal so opted for the Bavarian Inn. Our hostess recommended the schnitzel and schnitzel Cordon Bleu. Both were excellent and were washed down well with a bottle of their German Pinot Noir

Have been here several times before. Food is generally good. Service is OK. One thing I noticed is that the servers appear somewhat "unprofessional", sort of like they had just come in off the street. it would be a good idea to have some sort of dress code for the servers to amek them appear a little more professional. Does not have to be anything fancy - black pants and a shirt perhaps provided by the establishment.

Dear Norm, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience with us! We appreciate your feedback. We have a rather loose dress code for our staff for a number of reasons - the biggest being that I like to see our staff comfortable and confident in what they are wearing. We find this way our servers are able to truly be themselves with our guests and provide the personal touches of service we strive for. We do appreciate your feedback Sincerely, Shannon, Assistant Manager
