Lovely views and a gorgeous area to walk around in, and the food and service were amazing. The building is lovely too!
Perfect in every way. We don’t love or need loud music so we asked to have the volume reduced and it was great after that. Not sure why piping in music is popular in eating spots these days. People need to talk with one another. Excellent all around. Loved our meals
Great meal, beautiful building. Service was outstanding
The salmon was delicious - moist & full of flavour, served with brown lentils, puréed avacado and chorizo. The combination sounded odd to me but it was absolutely divine. My husband had the strip loin served with baby cooked onions, mushrooms, and potato “cake”. He loved it!
This was the perfect atmosphere for a first date. Very memorable. Thank you
Great food in a beautiful setting. Went out for my husband’s birthday and he was so happy. I have not seen him eat that much food in a long time. Service was also spectacular and we were well cared for. It is expensive but I feel like the quality of food was worth it and the portion size is just enough.
Awesome food! Great service
Wonderful first experience
Service great as usual. Salad and soup were very good. The braised short ribs fell short of our expectations. Dessert was great. It is a welcoming peaceful place to dine and the staff are extremely pleasant and polite.
Lovely lunch. I absolutely love the food and the service. I had the $30. lunch special. Every course was done to perfection. Elegant and relaxing.
Cadre magnifique, service exceptionnel (merci Deana!), nourriture savoureuse ! Au top!
Wonderful restaurant. The food was amazing with great service. Lovely evening out.
Gorgeous viewing! Tantalizing tastes! Highly recommend this sensational dining out experience! We loved it so much we have decided to have our wedding reception here.
We ate here before the pandemic and this was our first return visit. Two years ago the food was fabulous and the meal we had tonight was fabulous and very memorable.
Our waiter, Guillaume, was first rate. He suggested the fresh oysters and he was right, excellent. The beetroot salad is very unique and not your typical salad starter. You gotta love beets (we do) and this was superb.
My wife had the scallops and pork belly; I had the salmon with chorizo. Those sound like odd combinations but they are perfect pairs. Now what makes these dishes spectacular are what they are served over. Whipped sweet potatoes base for the scallops and beluga lentils with saffron butter for the salmon. Unbelievably amazing. No words to describe them.
Apple bread pudding sounds okay but they use a brioche with a rum and raisin sorbet. OMG that was amazing.
In short, an absolute enjoyable evening in one truly beautiful setting. First rate service too. Wow!
Alexis, was an awesome server, attentive and friendly.
Great place for a special night out. Food, service and ambiance was great. You won’t be disappointed.
What can I say that hasn't already been said? I have heard many stories from both my parents generation and my own that this was one of the premier spots to eat in Calgary.
I was so pleased to see I was right in choosing you. The Angus Striploin I had was truly the best steak I have ever had and that is coming from an experienced, born-in-alberta steak eater.
Ruth's Chris, Saltlik, and even Sky360 all of them are great; but everything at the Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant shines head and shoulders above all those establishments with grace.
Overall the experience was fantastic. The only feedback that I have is that I was disappointed with the number of scallops that I had.
There were only 4 scallops. For the price I expected more.
Other than that I was very satisfied.
New Years Eve🎆
Great evening ringing in the new year
We had an amazing evening. Dana made the phenomenal dinner extra special with her warmth and humor. We loved it
We enjoyed the New Years Eve menu which by far has been the best dinner to date at the Ranche.
Fabulous food and exceptional staff. Always a great experience for a special occasion out.
Excellent! Best beef tenderloin ever. Too expensive for anything but a special occasion.
Always a great experience! We love the atmosphere
Excellent food and atmosphere. We will definitely be back.
The food, ambience and service was great!
Rey good service and outstanding food quality but a bit pricy.
Awesome location and great atmosphere in a beautiful setting. Amazing art on the wall is available to purchase. Can't wait to go back!
The place from the outside and in gives a romantic impression. However, the food was lacking flavor and dry. Moreover, we waited for the main dish more than an hour. For the prices we pay there it did not meet my significant other and my expectations. It was our anniversary and we were quite disappointed.
We had the best time! Highly recommend! Excellent excellent service!! Our waitress was really the best! We are a funny energetic family and she fit right in with us! She was funny, knowledgeable, and extremely tentative. Took my family here for Xmas eve dinner and it was all perfect! We shared the muscles, a charcuterie board, beef tenderloin, and the braised lamb shank. Perfect family style meal! The wine list includes so many BC vineyard options. My mom loved one of the side that came with our main (the yam purée) and our server brought her another serving of it on the house! Honestly one of the very best experiences we’ve had in a long time. My only feedback would be that we were sad we didn’t get an opportunity to tell the management how impressed we were with them and their team! Can’t wait to come back!!! Amazing guest experience, beautiful location and atmosphere, and 5 star food!
It would be fun if your Brunch menu could extend into the week befits Christmas. My grandkids were disappointed as they were given the Brunch menu but couldn’t order from it. We loved the dessert! Salmon and pasta were not the best but the beef was great. Ambience was wonderful but being more spaced out(possible as restaurant was not busy) would have cut down on the noise.
Beautiful setting, tasty food with extras from the chef because we were celebrating our anniversary.
The staff we’re working hard but it seemed they may have been understaffed. With the noise level sometimes it was hard to hear our waiters voice behind his mask. We enjoyed our evening! Thank you!
Patrons well spaced
Service was excellent
Staff very accommodating, and pleasant
Entire meal was excellent
Just a lovely way to spend a couple hours away from the holiday mayhem
Will definitely book again !
An absolute perfect spot to celebrate a Christmas lunch with my best friend. As always, the food was amazing (I had the short rib and she had the salmon) and the atmosphere and ambience was perfect for the season. We sat for 4 hours and were ever rushed or made to feel we needed to go. Love love love The Ranche
Merry Christmas & Will see you again in the New Year
Great brunch, lovely atmosphere and stellar service. Love Bow Valley Ranche. We enjoyed perfect eggs benedict and a generous servings of fruit, potatoes and bacon/sausage,
Our server forgot to bring cutlery - we had to ask for it.
I got my hot water in a glass, rather than a cup.
When our dessert came out, no spoons.
Amazing ambience, service and outstanding food
Great food and prompt service. Overall excellent fine dining experience.
For a special occasion, this is the place. Good food, good wine and great ambience if you like a bit of history with your meal.
Excellent waiter. Food was well presented with interesting ingredients. Will return in the summer for the patio!
