  • "Great food great service. I ordered a vegetarian dish. It was beautifully presented and the flavour was fantastic. Sure will go back for more!"

  • "This is our favorite restaurant and we enjoy bringing our friends and family to this little gem. We've never had a bad meal, service has always been excellent. It's not a place you go if you are in a hurry, and we like that. There's no loud music so you can actually have a conversation without yelling. The wine list is excellent and the staff knowledgable. If you've never been to the Heartland, what are you waiting for?"

  • "I'm very picky with everything related to food so when I say this is THE Best restaurant in town, I mean it! The food is just amazing. The service is amazing, the waiters there will go the extra mile for you. The décor and ambience are just awesome too. Everything is just amazing in this restaurant. I'm sure this is all due to an excellent Management. I have NEVER been disappointed in that restaurant so I recommend everyone to go there."

  • "Heartland is a favourite of mine to go and meet some friends for a very tasteful and yummy lunch. We have always had great service, though our last time our waitress wasn't the greatest. She seemed put out because we had a dirty fork that needed to be replaced and we had to ask her about the specials. But that was a one time thing, usually we get outstanding service. We will definitely be going back."

  • "I have never had anything I did not like. Salads are very fresh and tasty. Sandwiches wonderful. Best place in Okotoks!"

  • "Really glad that we 'found' this restaurant. Their rice pudding, with rum soaked raisins, is to die for!!!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Soup was scorched. Waitress was upset with kitchen but took care of it immediately and replaced the soup. Our waitress was very, very good. We have many, many positive experiences there and have no hesitation taking friends and family back."

  • "Flavourful food. Organic wine choices. There was a mix-up with my order, which the server quickly solved. Fun atmosphere with a bit of history."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "We will definitely be back, awesome food, service and ambience. The fact that it is a restored church just adds to the experience!!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "We chose to visit the Heartland Cafe for brunch after enjoying many lunches there in the past. The restaurant is in a beautiful old church building and usually is great, however this time the service was awful, our breakfast scant and missing numerous items from the menu, and even our eggs were cold. The "french toast" was store bought banana bread that wasn't even toasted. I will not be returning."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "I love this restaurant! We've been going here a couple of times a month for 5 years and have never had a bad experience. The food is consistently excellent, the staff friendly, and I love that I can have a conversation with my hubby and not have to yell over the music. I would choose this place over the big name restaurants any day."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Had a lovely table for 2 in the nook. I don't love that it's a little brighter than the rest of the dinning room but it was very romantic. I choose this place because of their amazing food and coffee options. Everything is fresh and they often rotate menu items with seasons so your sure to find a new gem everytime you go. It was also a good choice for us as it is a grown up feel but we could bring our son if we needed to. People do bring children and children are welcome although the number of kids drops drastically around 7. It is in an old church so it has a very fun and calm atmosphere. We like going for dinner as its fresh and has a 17th ave calgary style of menu without the pretentious staff and tight parking."

  • "This is really a nice place to go for lunch or diner, haven't tried the Brunch it is next. Very nice & clean, friendly, good food, excellent decor. All in all a real treat to go some place different with some romantic class."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "Like I said the food was good but the service was slow even though they were not busy. The server also forgot my soup."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Surprised that they had a set Valentines menu, so now I am there and committed so they got me now not the most positive way to start the meal. The cost was high and every plate outside of the vegetarian was extra so my expectations are now very high. The appetizer was very good however the duck was over cooked and one could tell it had been sitting after being cooked. The dessert tasted ok but did not reflect the price. Staff had been working over 12 hours and are completely exhausted. Never asked how meal was. When one leaves most of an expensive duck behind in its plates does that not ring a bell? Not a romantic environment when staff in fluorescent shirts, ball caps drinking at bar after shift. I really do need more characters!"

  • "After visiting heartland alot in the past year, I found his visit the most disappointing. We always seem to get seated in the worst parts of the restaurant most items on the menu were sold out by 7:30pm, I was also disipointed with the valentines dinner menu it was very expensive for what normally is a very reasonably priced menu don't get me wrong the food was very good. as it stands right now I am not sure I would return to this restaurant."

  • "just simply a great place to meet and eat . Lovely atmosphere and fantastic turkey meatballs.!!!! Great wine , food in general was a delight. Will recommend it to my friends!"
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "Always good food. Although we had to wait a little longer than usual for our food to be prepared, it was very good. The soup could have been a bit warmer. My husband ordered the bison meatloaf and mentioned that it was very good, albeit a little dry. The rice pudding he ordered for dessert was the best he's ever had and he's eaten a lot of rice pudding. The waitress was very attentive."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "Appetizers/dessert-delicious. (Mussels/soup/carrotcake) I had the Crusted Chicken, it was a little overcooked, but still very tasty. Took a little long to order dessert after main meal, but over all service was good. Great atmosphere. Renovated Church, kind of interesting."

  • "Heartland has a wonderfully varied menu, incredible daily soups, and unique flavours. Nothing is prepackaged or 'from the box' here; only great, freshly cooked meals."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Heartland Cafe is one of our favorites. The food is always home made, delicious, and well portioned. The staff are very attentive, and the atmosphere is that of "stay as long as you like"; it's never rushed."

  • "We had a wonderful meal. Server was attentive and kind, but let us visit. It was also wine night- bonus!"

  • "Hi, I just moved to Okotoks from Calgary and I decided to try Heartland because it was so unique looking from the outside. So I invited three friends, I had spring salad and cheddar bacon ale soup which was not very good at all. Our server was a sweet girl. the overall opinion was that we thought that it was much too pricey for the food quality. But the decor is delightful. I will give it another shot as maybe it was an off day and I do like to support my community."

  • "It was great as always but we had a table by the door so it was cold. When we asked to be moved they told us every table was booked"
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "We went for brunch arriving when they opened at 10 am. Took a bit to get coffee and when our friends arrived took awhile for them to get coffee. Finally ordered our breakfast (we were the only ones there) and it arrived after a considerable wait cold. We were not prepared to give it up as by 10 am we were all hungry. We thought it was beautiful, but would hate to see the service when it was busy. Seemed more important to get caught up on chit chat with staff. Not sure if we would go back!"
    Dined on 1/5/2014
  • "The quality of the food is fantastic, especially the homemade bread, and the setting is very relaxed. I love that the tables are not squished and you don't feel like ur sitting on top of other people. All together excellent experience!"

  • "A wonderful spot to stop in Old Towne Okotoks for lunch or dinner. A limited but original menu with kitchen made breads, soups and desserts and a nice variety of entrees made from fresh organic and naturally grown ingredients. Delicious food with friendly, personal service."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "We came for my moms birthday! Carrot cake, on the house and a lovely rendition of 'Happy Birthday' was sung. Everyone enjoyed their meals, including the little ones. One downside. The pork belly had bits of bone in it, couldn't share with our 18 month old, but otherwise, very delish!"
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "Wonderful food and ambience in the heart of Old Towne Okotoks! Absolutely stellar Eggs Benny and Mac and Cheese. Nowhere else can a simple 'side salad' become so special (especially with the house made feta dressing!)."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "I ordered a burger and the meat was just black. It even had a crunch because the meat was charred! It took away the taste of the whole burger. My wife ordered the chicken pot pie and she said the taste wasn't that good... lots of sauce, little bit of chicken... For the price we paid this was below average food! Next time we're heading back to RCB here in Okotoks."
