    Our meal last night was fantastic. I was slightly disappointed at the menu options, I remember there being more unique dishes last time I visited. However we both had steak and it was delicious. I was surprised that the only vegetable add-on available was brocolli and carrots. I would have appreciated some sort of beet dish, or asparagus. All in all, if I hadn't been before and experienceed a much more unique meal I likely would have rated it a 5 stars. However, having had that experience at the Bow Valley ranche before I had slightly higher expectations. P.S. The service was Phenomenal.

    Outstanding service! The only complaint I would have is that we sat by the window on a very cold night and felt the chill - I would have said something but moving to another table I thought it would be an inconvenience when we already had food and drinks on the table. I will just be sure to request no window on very chilly nights. The food was amazing!

    This restaurant NEVER disappoints! We were out for a birthday lunch. The braised beef short ribs OMGosh! SO GOOD!!! I do not know how the Chef did the veggies but the parsnips were spectacular! The potatoes and the light gravy! It was absolutely heavenly! Our server Owen was kind, attentive and a lovely person. This is one of my very very favourite places to dine. Thank- you so much for a fabulous birthday lunch. I will be bringing friends for a Christmas lunch in December. I forgot to mention the beautiful fireplace in the dinigroom and the comfy chairs! I love you Bow Valley Ranche💗 see you soon! Annie, Cassandra, Christine and Marilyn

    I invited my husband for lunch, it was his first time at the Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant. He was impressed with the environment, the food was incredibly presented and it was delicious. We decided we are going to have a Family Christmas dinner at the restaurant, we want the kids to enjoy a lovely dinner there. The service was excellent.

    We have been coming here for years. Unfortunately our recent experience was a miss on every level. The service was laughable - no seriously, we were laughing at how bad it was throughout our dinner. Our server was just terrible, didn’t listen and was never around. We maybe saw her three times. Cocktails were good. Food was mediocre - so sad! In the past it’s been amazing, but both of our mains were a miss and the cheesecake was a terrible mess on the plate and just strange. We didn’t finish it. We left with a pricey bill, underwhelmed and disappointed. Too bad.

    Food was tasty and great combination of flavours. We had the surf and turf for 2 as an entree. We were a bit disappointed that there was only 2 of each shrimp or scallops but there was more potatoes than 2 people could eat. We also had the charcuterie board which had lots of tasty options. Desert was a combo of popcorn and root beer and our our tea champagne was also a delight for the palette. Service was on point and we were happy with that. I also asked to me seated in a smaller room away from the large crowds typically in the main hall. It was granted and for much of our meal, we had a quiet space until a large group was seated in the room towards the end of our stay. I indicated it was my birthday dinner and I half expected a sparkler or candle on the cake we had but that didn’t happen. Overall we enjoyed the meal, service , and ambience and can recommend!

    The food was excellent. The only thing is the lights were not on outside. Made for a rather sketchy looking parking lot. The only part of the meal that was not great was the dessert. Felt more like granola with apples than an apple crisp.

    We booked brunch time for a family group to celebrate a milestone birthday. It was a great choice: pleasant setting with a local theme, great food, and very attentive servers. Some of us are particularly sensitive to noise; this place had a very low level of background conversations and nothing to irritate the sensitive people. The food included interesting vegetarian options. After the brunch we went for a walk in the park around, which was also a bonus.
