Food was fantastic. The service was excellent! We’ll be back again. Absolutely loved it! Great place to celebrate birthdays with a loved one.
We love this restaurant, service is always great and food amazing. We will miss it terrible, but unfortunately we heard that this restaurant made decision to discriminate unvaccinated people and go with vax passport.
That’s mean we are not welcome anymore.
Food was excellent. Service was ok. Ambience was very nice and the noise level not to bad.
Enjoyed our lunch. It was a beautiful Fall day. Sat out on the lovely patio. Food was fabulous so was the service. We love this place!
What a wonderful place to have a special dinner. We sat by a window overlooking the back garden. Our server was very attentive and pleasant as were the other staff ensuring our water was refilled, finished dishes were promptly cleared away, etc. The food was very good, We had the halibut and scallops for main dishes. The scallops were a bit salty but were cooked fine, the halibut was very tasty. Overall very good.
We started with the beet salad, it was excellent.
Our main course was very mediocre.
Our server was lovely.
The food and service were great, the building and location make it very romantic.
However, you are not fully able bodied this restaurant poses several barriers and challenges.
We brought our 4 month old in his stroller. The tables in the large dining hall were close together and it was challenging to get his stroller through and then once we found a spot for him in the stroller (too young for a high chair) we were asked to move it for fire reasons - this was annoying, since the room we were eating in didn't get very full. Our impression was that our options were to put our baby right on the floor or hold him the entire time.
My husband and I used two different washrooms, which were not on the main floor. The washroom I used did not have a place to change our baby. Entrance transitions were not smooth and would prove an addition barrier if you were able to get your assistive device up the few front stairs.
Lots of perks to eating here if you are able bodied. I was impressed with the kids menu, taste-quality-presentation of the food were excellent and level of service we received was timely and friendly. Disheartened by the barriers we faced having a stroller and a small baby.
Overall, Excellent!!! I will definitely come back to this restaurant.
So happy to have another great experience! Bonus that was a beautiful day for us to enjoy the front deck. Thank you!
Such a beautiful place to have lunch or supper, the food and service was spectacular, it is on the pricey side for lunch but we’ll worth it
Our first time at BVR restaurant, relaxed and welcome venue, the food was fantastic and Guillaume's service at our table was superb (safe travels back to France :-)
This is a gem of a restaurant with amazing staff, great ambience and amazing food. I’d recommend it to anyone wanting to dine somewhere special.
Arrived at 7. Wasn’t overly busy but seemed that they were overwhelmed by the amount of patrons. Perhaps understaffed. Food was wonderful. Service was good. Would return.
Bow Valley Ranche is always a great place to dine. The service is excellent and the food is terrific.
Amazing food, amazing service. Whats not to like.
Great setting, wonderful staff and the food and craft cocktails are amazing. They weeabke to easily accommodate a gluten allergy. Definitely recommend this place, we'll be back.
Reservations were for 8, we arrived 5 min late with the walk from the car park. Table was not ready upon arrival. Waited to be seated approx another 5 mins. Was pleased to be seated at a comfortable table as many are just standard hard wood chairs this wouldn’t have been enjoyable. Waiter took exceptionally long to attend to our table upon our arrival. Wine requested also was out of stock unfortunate, took way to long to be told and find an alternative. I was not served my Drink until 8:47 pm, mentioned previously we arrived at 805. From this point on the food was brought out quickly, almost to much so however. Spacing between the appetizer and entree was back to back with no time to enjoy a break and prepare for the next course. Overall Food was excellent but the pace of service made me feel extremely rushed while eating. Wait staff friendly but seemed overwhelmed. Large party in front room made the night exceptionally loud which was not what I was hoping for. Overall experience was just ok and likely won’t return with so many other options. Best part was the walk in the park at night after.
Waiter => very good and knowledgeable. Food Server (ladies) not so great.. instead of placing dish down smoothly.. they were abrupt side.
other than that.. all ben great.
Very relaxed and friendly setting. Good service and excellent food.

It was a lovely evening and we had delicious food and drinks on the veranda . The garden around the restaurant is stunning. We’ve been there many times and fully enjoy it every time .
Lovely location for a quiet, tasty lunch. Enjoyed it.

Always a wonderful experience dining here. Friendly helpful service and the food is second to none. Our go to for birthday celebrations.
Good food & service! Pleasant place to spend time in Fish Creek!
Managed to move to a table outside and it was lovely, eating inside on a hot day is not advised
A friend and I enjoyed the Express Lunch when we went to the Bow Valley Ranche yesterday. We were able to sit outside on the verandah. It was a beautiful day. The service was excellent. Our starter of potato and roasted garlic soup was creamy and flavourful. The main course of grilled salmon in a lemon beurre blanc sauce was delicious. The dessert of panna cotta was rich and smooth-set perfectly. Since we were celebrating my friend’s birthday, she was given a complementary chocolate truffle!
We both enjoyed our lunch immensely and are looking forward to going there again.
Amazing. As always. I will be dreaming of eating those moules frites for days.
Excellent food and service. Chef was amazing in accommodating food allergies/ limitations.
It was a lovely day for lunch with my granddaughter and I..
Last day before Grade 10 started at a beautiful spot!
The outside table was perfect. All of our meal was delicious..
The staff was pleasant but seemed quite rushed..
But I live just up the hill and will return in any case..
Beautiful restaurant and yummy food.
I love Bow Valley Ranche. It is my favourite dining experience ever. Food, service, environment is second to none! Thank you Ranche. I am a loyal patron forever.
Excellent food, great service, and a beautiful location in which to dine.
Top drawer food and service in a wonderful venue.
