It was Canada Day brunch! Three generations , myself, daughter & Grand daughter had the most delicious brunch! The weather was beautiful, we dined outside...just lovely!
Amazing food, excellent staff, great feeling room. Would recommend for a classy date night experience
We live nearby and were hoping to make this a regular outing, however we were sorely disappointed in the food. The halibut was over cooked and the strip loin was marbled and tough. Overall the flavour was fine, but definitely not worth the big sticker price. I doubt we’ll return with the selection of fantastic restaurants to choose from in Calgary.
The service was beyond amazing!!!
Isabella is exceptional at her job, the food was terrific. This was our first visit and we will definitely be back...sharing our experience with many friends.
Thank you Theo!
We were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary. The food was delicious. The staff were attentive but allowed us to take our time to enjoy each course. When we were too full for dessert our waitress brought us two melt-in-your-mouth chocolate truffles with a white chocolate ‘Happy Anniversary’ note....a very lovely ending to a special evening.
Hi Sally, Thank you for the wonderful review and happy belated Anniversary!
As usual we had another amazing dining experience at Bow Valley Ranch. The service given by Dana was exemplary. It is always a pleasure to be served by her. Each dish looked appetizing and tasted wonderful, showing a great respect by the chef for each ingredient on the plate with the combination of flavours. We will look forward to our next visit.
Thank you for the great feedback!
Brunch was amazing, and the service was incredible. Many thanks.
Thank you for the perfect score! Come back soon!
Great evening; our server Derek made it amazing
It's our first time dining at this restaurant and we had a wonderful experience. The game meat burgers we ordered were so juicy and tender. The service was very good and we were particularly impressed by our server, "Mikayla". She's pleasant, attentive and personable. Mikayla definitely made our experience so much more enjoyable.
Hi George, Thanks so much for the wonderful review. I will be sure to pass on your kind words to Mikayla and all our staff!
First rate !

Thank you Michelle!
Everything was excellent and we felt welcomed
Thank you for the perfect score!
We love this restaurant and have been here before. This time around, from the time we sat down to the time we started eating it took about an hour and a half. The service was wonderful but the kitchen was slow. The food was delicious but for the small amount of people dining alongside us, there shouldn’t have been a reason why the kitchen was so slow.
Other than that, it was a pleasant experience with delicious food.
Hi Anonymous, Thank you for your honest review! We will do our best in the future!
With the new Covid-19 guidelines, I believe Bow Valley Ranche to be more pleasant to dine in. The tables are spaced, signs are located discreetly but visible, and all staff are wearing masks and ensuring their safety and our own. The food was delicious, as always.
Thank you for the great feedback!
My meal was perfectly cooked. We went with the family, and we will absolutely return. I can't believe we have lived in Calgary so long without going here... I heard about it all the time.
Thank you for the positive review! Looking forward to seeing you all here again!
Always great service. Charcuterie was excellent, Florentine Chicken was fantastic and the Mousse was decadent. Very gluten free friendly as well.
Thank you Kalvin! We look forward to seeing you here again soon!
The food offer for Father’s brunch day was not the menu display on the web page. I did not like the food overall looks like something was missing.
Hi ClaoSan, Thank you for your feedback - so sorry to hear that things were not up to standard on Father's Day. I would love to speak with you further about your experience and what we can do to improve for next time. My name is Suzanne and I can be reached at: 403-476-1310
Wow! What else can one say? The Bow Valley Ranche is back, and better than ever!
The location is undeniably unbeatable, sitting in the heart of Fish Creek Park. The service was impeccable, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. And none of that annoying "how are the first few bites tasting"! (Who started that nonsense anyway). But, on to the food. Oh, the food! They've had some staffing changes, including a new head chef and the difference is distinctly noticeable! They have seriously "upped their game".
We recently had brunch there for Father's Day and were not disappointed. From the salad (we all had the Trio of Tomato Salad), which was very fresh and obviously NOT prepared in advance, to the entrees (my wife had the Spinach and Mushroom Eggs Benedict, my son and I had the Striploin), which were outstanding, to the wonderful deserts (Limoncello Dome and Poached Pineapple Carpaccio), everything was top notch!
Since they reopened about 3 weeks ago, they have apparently been fully booked, so reservations are definitely recommended. Although running at only 50% capacity, due to the current situation, we didn't feel it felt overly empty, but obviously not crowded either. Given that this was our first restaurant visit since the pandemic broke out, we weren't sure what to expect, but the staff are very respectful in the wearing of masks while serving and it didn't feel strange.
All in all, and outstanding experience and we will most certainly be back! Kudos to the serving and kitchen staff!
Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback! I will be sure to pass on your kind words to all our staff. We look forward to hosting your family again soon! Take care.
As usual, we very much enjoyed out Brunch this past Fathers’ day. We were seated indoors ( our preference ) and the service was very good. Our meal was enjoyable and the ambience is always outstanding!!
Thank you for your review Karen!
Awesome dinner celebrating our daughter’s high school grad. Delicious food, great cocktails and attentive service. Thank you!
Thank you for leaving us a great review! Congratulations to your daughter on such an important milestone!
Good food little disappointed in the ambience in celebrating our 50 th anniversary
Thank you for your feedback!
Amazing diner and service! Abeyance was exactly what I wanted for a special birthday diner!
Thank you for the great review!
This was our first time dining here. The food was so delicious. Both my husband and I really enjoyed the flavours. We ate outside and enjoyed the view. It was a perfect date night. We will definitely be returning again.
Thank you for the great review!
Lovely experience! The food was delicious and the scenery was absolutely stunning
Thank you Emma! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Fantastic food and service was top notch. We had a late seating in a quiet room with a window view and it was just lovely. Beef tenderloin was amazing!
Thank you so much for your kind words! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Service was exceptional. Dana was attentive as were the other staff. Our Stella Artois beer arrived warm but Dana was quick to offer alternatives.
Thank you for your kind words - I will be sure to let Dana and the team know!
Outstanding ambiance and location. However, the food is feeling quite lazy ie the same presentation and accompaniments (more or less) for each plate that came out from the kitchen. Used to be at BVR each main was unique in presentation and flavour and made the best use of seasonal fare. Can’t say that was the case for our last 2 outings at BVR. Disappointed in this and it will influence our decision to rush back for another dinner out at the Ranche.
Hi Anonymous, Thank you for feedback! We are currently running with a reduced menu and are focused on how to reduce food waste since we are not operating at full dining capacity yet. At our next menu meeting, we will be sure to discuss how to elevate our dishes. Thank you again and take care!
Great menu. Steak was perfect. Service was outstanding.
Thank you for the great review!
Very appealing ambiance. Friendly staff and delicious meal. We will definitely return to Bow Valley Ranch to dine again!
Thank you Sheldon! We look forward to hosting you again soon!
Loved it, been here several times and the service, food, and atmosphere is ALWAYS outstanding.
Thank you for the great score!
Thank you Guilluime for a great evening, your service was perfect!
Thank you Randy for the great score! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The food and overall experience are not justified for the price. Beet salad and octopus carpaccio were good. Surf and turf for the main was a bad choice. The seafood was no where near properly cooked, roasted veggies were lame, and the Bison was simply adequate. Maybe would have ben more acceptable for half the price. Did not meet expectations. Lot's of other options that will provide a much better experience for less.
Hi Jeff, Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear that things were not up to standard that night. Please feel free to reach out if you would like to discuss the particulars of your visit and how we can improve for next time! email@example.com m. Hopefully we'll get another chance to get it right, thank you!
