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.

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

We are stuck in a corner and forgotten. No water refills, no one asked if we would like another drink, no one asked how our food was. We had to ask for pepper, which took 20 minutes so our food got cold, we also had to ask to have our dinner plates cleared away and for the bill. I would never recommend this restaurant. Worst service I have ever had, food was only okay at best.

We have always had a good experience at the Bavarian Inn. Our server Laura was absolutely incredible and saw to our every need and anticipated things we didn't even know that we needed. The only thing that wasn't the best was the breading on the schnitzel must have been left out too long because it was soggy. My fellow diners we're thrilled with their meals. The Elk medallions were exquisite.

Very cute restaurant out in brag creek. We sat outside and it was a lovely atmosphere. Service was quick and friendly. The only downside for me was my meal, it was a bit over cooked. As a German person I had high hopes for the signature dish but was left a bit disappointed. One person in my party had the liver and said it was delicious. Maybe it’s worth trying a different dish next time.

Disappointed with the meal. We had a 5:00 reservation. When we put in our order we were told that there was a large group order that had just gone in and that we could expect a delay in getting our food. This large group had come in to the restaurant after we arrived. We were later told that they no longer had the food selection that we had requested as the large group had depleted their stock. We were offered replacements but since the menu was seasonal, it was certainly not equal. The whole meal experience was less than stellar as even the requested replacements were not correct. One of the meals was complemented and 10% was taken off the total; despite this, the dining experience was frustrating and certainly less than what would be expected at a high end restaurant.
