Your staff is outstanding - the food is excellent every time we are there - thanks for providing such a lovely place for lunch
We took friends out for a moving away farewell. The new menu looks great. We actually all ended up ordering the scallops for our mains….it was outstanding! Thank you Chef Bern! Our server Dana was fantastic as usual!!
There was a confusion in who was our waiter. We had our starter and took almost an hour to have our main course. Waiter politely apologised, gave us free drink and a good discount. The food was excellent!
Was a birthday celebration and was my first time there .. was a wonderful experience , food and service was outstanding. I was disappointed that as it was a birthday party they would have brought a dessert or something for the birthday girl
Bow Valley Ranch never disappoints. The food is always amazing and the service is great. The lamb was delectable and the elk tartare was delicious (as always).
Great atmosphere, great food and great friendly service!
Our service was outstanding. Special requests honored easily. Waitress was awesome. Food was terrific. A special place for a special celebration. They did not disappoint. We will be back.
It was a fantastic experience that I will repeat for sure!
Excellent meal in this wonderful historic building. Lots of space between tables, so we felt like we were really on our own. Food was unique and tasty. The steak was particularly tender. Servers were attentive but not bothersome. It was a family birthday dinner and they provided a lovely Happy Birthday icecream treat for the birthday girl. Very tastefully done. I would recommend this place for a special occasion.
Excellent service. Limited food selection, but all very well done. The setting in Fish Creek Park is beautiful.
First time at the restaurant. We went ti celebrate our anniversary. The food, service, and ambience all far exceeded our expectations. Will be going back on another special occasion for sure!
The environment was relaxed and comfortable, service allowed for nice choices and well spaced meals. Had a great time.
One of the best experiences we have ever had dining out. Everything was wonderful and the food outstanding.
We absolutely love dining a Bow Valley Restaurant.
It was my husband’s birthday and Dayna our server was outstanding. She really honed in on our needs and surpassed our expectations. Well done
Thank you for making my happy Husband’s birthday dinner extra special.
Nice atmosphere. Somewhat limited menu but the food was excellent. Pricing not too bad.
Very nice Restaurant.. love the heritage
I had the opportunity to plan a nice date night for my wife and I last weekend. I chose a restaurant that neither of us had visited before with the dual purpose of having a nice dinner and exploring a venue for a potential anniversary celebration.
Our dinner was an excellent experience. The food was exquisite, the ambiance and energy in the room was warm and inviting, and our table by the French doors had a splendid view of the courtyard where receptions are held. I am keen to return in the summer when the landscape is in full bloom.
Our appetizers were very nice. My wife had Elk Tartare with tapioca crackers. I had Grilled Octopus which was tender and juicy. Our entrées were even better. My wife had the Peri Peri Chicken and I had the Lamb Shank. The chicken was moist and sufficiently spiced. I must say, I had no need of my knife except to cut up a few carrots. My fork was the only utensil I required since the meat was so super tender that it just fell off the bone.
Overall, our experience was excellent. It was one of the very best evenings we have shared this year. I plan to return there in the summer to enjoy their greenery views and more delicious food.
I highly recommend this restaurant for many occasions. They offer event planning for weddings etc. You can even book one of their elegant spaces for a smaller gathering or the whole house if you like.
Very Good service, very friendly and professional staff.
We had a great time at the restaurant with our server, Tristan. His attention to detail made the experience memorable and we will be back for sure!
We had a great time visiting and enjoying the delicious food.
Only negative was that the waiters kept spilling water on our table (and it sprayed into my eye at one point) while refilling our water glasses.
Wonderful building, wonderful staff, wonderful atmosphere.
We heard so much about the Ranch restaurant and had to try it. Our meals were amazing. Tenderloin dinner was perfect. The Salmon was equally tasty. Not a big selection on the menu, definitely something for everyone. Will return soon.
I realize there is a staffing shortage, however, you still shouldn't have to constantly need to ask for things.
After being seated by the hostess, there seemed to be confusion among the servers as to who was serving our table and we waited 20 minutes before a server came to our table. Afterwards, the service and food were their usual top drawer quality. The only drawback is the noise level in the main dining hall; tables of noisy diners make for difficult conversation with dining partners. If a table is available in one of the smaller rooms, request it.
It was delicious and our waiter Kevin was a amazing! Can’t wait to come again and try something different!
The greeting, service, food, attention, cleanliness, efficiency were all fabulous.
We had a good time at the restaurant. The atmosphere is romantic and very relaxing. The food is okay but not great. I think the food is something that should be changed. Other then that everything is great.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed her 74th birthday brunch at the Ranche.
Went out for a birthday dinner date and the restaurant did a little extra for the desert, we really enjoyed our whole meal as everything was well seasoned and perfectly cooked. The service was real great as well and everyone made sure the meals was enjoyable.
Used for a birthday dinner. Fantastic food and atmosphere. Definitely recommended.
The food and service is always exceptional. It's is expensive for the amount of food and drinks, but it is all prepared extremely well. For the occasional dining out experience it's well worth it!
We were disappointed the potatoes were luke warm but the rest of our meal was very nice
Extremely pricey and small servings, but excellent food. Our table was next to a very loud group unfortunately.
The large dining room is a little noisy but we still enjoyed our experience. Had a nice window seat, comfy chairs and the architecture of the building is so beautiful.
Very noisy and service this day very slow, had a burger that was over cooked.
The food was exquisite and flavourful served by well versed severs on both food and alcohol knowledge. Definitely a huge recommendation for foodies!
Excellent meal and service. I thought the tables were a bit too close especially when a woman sat down near us with VERY strong perfume. I wish people would remember that many people are allergic to perfume.
Its been a great experience. Food is awesome, we love the taste of mussels with thai curry.. beetroot salad is so good. And of course our main dish which is surf and turf , just wish have more scallop though 😉. Staff are friendly. A very nice ambience, We definitely will try to come back on day time and try the dome event next time.
