Food, service and atmosphere is outstanding. Can't wait to try their amazing patio.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceBonterra gives an incredible eating experience. It is all about service and customer satisfaction. Most of the restaurants in Calgary think this is unimportant.
At Bonterra, your water glass is never empty and your server is always at your side.
Great eating experience!!!!!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOur out of town special occasionOur out of town special occasion was enhanced for having chosen this spot.thank you for treating us so well and preparing such great food!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLikeable definitelyThe food & service will bring you back.
It is too noisy to be romantic, but would be great for small friendly groups.
We will definitely go there again.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Dining ExperienceOur server Michelle provided outstanding service throughout the evening. She was helpful, courteous and attentive; making wine selection recommendations to pair with our meals. Even though the restaurant was very busy, her experience showed by the unwavering service. Our dinner selections were perfectly prepared and very delicious. We will be back for another great dining out experience.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious. IThe food was delicious. I couldn't get over how good it tasted. The portions were a tad small but it wasn't expensive for the quality you get. You'd expect to pay double elsewhere for the same food and portions.
It was really busy so you'd assume they'd have more servers on deck. But, they only had 2 servers for what had to be over 50 people. We were forgotten a few times and it took a while for us to receive anything, including the attention of the server. Not her fault, she was serving so many tables.
All in all, a good experience.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBonterra Trattoria bueno!Exceptional starters. Try the octopus! and the wild boar carbonara. Found the mains to be very good but not quite up to what we started with. Still a wonderful meal all in all.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA great night outWent to Bonterra for a birthday dinner .. food was great ..service OK.. could be a little more attentive ..overall very enjoyable meal6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways GreatBonterra can be relied upon to provide a great dining experience. Good for business, a date, friends or a special occasion.
We have never been disappointed.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat oysters. The food wasGreat oysters. The food was very good. Would definately come back for dinner.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinately want to go backDefinately want to go back to try the patio. We were there early - when we were leaving it definately changed and seemed more energenic. Would also like to come back at a later time as well.
But for this time liked that fact that it was quieter and seemed romantic - which is what we were wanting for this date.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly fairly gluten free friendlyBonterra needs to offer more gluten free dishes. It was agonizing to see the delicious puffy focacia is being passed around and have nothing to nibble on. As well, they need a gluten free pizza. Care bakeries makes a delicious crust that we enjoy regularly at Una Pizza. Bonterras gluten free pasta is divine.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!The restaurant is like we stepped into Italy or Spain. It is beautiful. The menu was simple but everything that we had was delicious. We had 2 appetizers, Zuppa with fennel and apple was amazing. My husband had the carbonara and he was very impressed. At the end of the night we had the Taramazu and it never let us down. It was one of our best meals for a long time. We will definitely return.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMtwas greatWine was great. Food was fantastic. Server was also great. Overall awesome experience there and will definitely be hack there again.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's Not Only the Wine ListIt's the paring too. Our server did a great job of talking to us about the options from the fairly extensive by-the-glass wine list, providing samples, etc. A nice way to take your mind off the cares of the day.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointedHave been coming to Bonterra's for years now. Never disappointed in the service or food. You can't go wrong dining here.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodFood was great, there were 6 of us...everyone enjoyed their entrees and all were different. Service was fast and server offered great suggestions.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great dining experienceI am been frequenting Bonterra for years with family and friends, and continue to enjoy the quality of the food, great wine list, creativity of chefs, and the warm and friendly service.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMConcorAs always, great food, great service and great experience!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter Sam was fantastic.Our waiter Sam was fantastic. We asked for his recommendations and he delivered. Best dinner out in a long time.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect patioWe went to Bonterra for my mother in law's 60th birthday and weren't disappointed. I had read great reviews and they were true. We were on the patio which was very lovely. Food was fantastic, we shared multiple dishes. Great wine list as well. Tiramisu for dessert was best I've had. Will definitely return for a date night.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLucky to have Balcony Seatingweather was decent and balcony was heated - very lovely atmosphere on the roof.
food was delicious and there were lots of appealing menu options. Server recommended a great wine after narrowing down a few options for us. Cost was appropriate for the food quality/experience we were receiving.
Only complaint (which is minor given it was a busy friday night) was that our server did not refill our wine/water glasses.
I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food and serviceWe loved the patio and the service was impeccable. Great food and wine and the portions were perfect. A great Mother's Day dinner. Thanks5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVeal meatballs... Addictive! !!Love bon terra ,I do wish they had one simple fresh pasta on the menu.
No body is doing exceptional simple food anymore.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly SurprisedFrom the time we walked into Bonterra from the back entrance we were made feel welcome. We needed an early night because of an extremely early flight the next morning and were surprised to get a table on OpenTable just 45minutes prior.
Our Waiter was pleasant attentive but not intrusive and it was easy to maintain a private conversation. We both had halibut which was pan fried perfectly and special mention to the gnocchi dish we shared.
We will absolutely return and recommend it enthusiastically .5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot, glad I finally tried itI had been wanting to try Bonterra for a while now and just hadn't been able to make it work. I booked a lunch with some clients who work in the area and we were not disappointed. We were all very pleased with our lunches. I had the gnocchi and it was delicious. The gnocchi were light and fluffy, not overly heavy and filling. The mixture of flavours in the sauce was perfect. I'm not generally an olive guy, but the olives in the sauce provided just the right amount of saltiness to the dish.
I will definitely have to go back when I have more time to sit and enjoy the surroundings and the wine list! The patio wasn't open yet when we were there, but I hear it is one of the best in town.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favourite spotsOne of my favourite spots in Calgary! consistently excellent food, service and incredibly reasonable prices. Love this restaurant!1/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
