Great place for a romantic dinner. The service is outstanding.
Had the steak and eggs again and it was great again. Tried the strawberry cashew dessert and it was quite good, velvetty with a nutty crust. The price was a little high but then so are cashews. The service staff are wonderful and balanced the tables very well. It was warmer this time on the patio as as its become a favourite, cannot wait for warmer weather to enjoy it more.
Francis was our server and made the whole outdoor dining experience excellent. He was absolutely amazing in every way. He was attentive and brought out all courses in a well timed manner- we were not rushed and felt relaxed.
We felt that COVID protocols were strictly adhered to which is important for us while Calgary has the highest amount of cases in the pandemic.
The restaurant is beautiful in a serene setting of Fish Creek Park.
The food is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! Well prepared and interesting. There were many choices that would suit a variety of palates. We felt spoiled!
Thank you for the excellent dining experience. We will be returning soon.
Food was good. I thought the scallop dish was a little small. The oysters were fabulous ... could probably make a meal just ordering a bunch of them! The waiters were also very good. I would return.
It was cold, -1, and could only dine on the patio under the covid restrictions, but waitress was super warm, and tried hard to keep customers warm!
Food as good as usual!
Scenery is beautiful even on a miserable day!
And the restaurant is clean and sanitized during the covid!
Thanks for everything!
Thanks Fiona for joining us despite the cooler weather! Happy to hear that everything was top notch!
Booked patio seat at 10 am for brunch and chose steak and eggs. I was not disappointed. Eggs were perfect (no runny whites) was was the med rare steak. It was a great portion and they should bottle the sauce!. The potato coins were so tasty and if I speared one on my fork and added some egg, it was a perfect bite. The side of fruit was delicious. Although its April, I booked a patio seat because of covid. There are heaters in the ceiling and with my fleece sweater and coat on my legs, I felt comfortable to enjoy coffee and watched doggies on the pathways. My feet were slightly chilled so next time I will wear heavier socks or warm boot.
Thank you for the great feedback!
We had a fantastic time in your restaurant. Food was excellent with outstanding service.
Thank you for the great review!
Very interesting experience dining outside in April. food was delicious.
Anniversary dinner was great
A little chilly having to eat outside in the evening. Staff was very accommodating finding us an extra heater. The complimentary chocolate soufflé was delicious. Great place.
Thank you Kevin for braving the weather and celebrating with us!
Underwhelming! Although it is during Covid & weather was not great. Still expected more from the food & atmosphere. Patio heaters were not that helpful and patio was nothing special. Price was high for an average experience.
Sorry to hear that overall your experience was underwhelming. It would be helpful if we could have more information in regards to what was underwhelming about our food so that we can improve in the future! If you are able, please reach out to Suzanne at 403-476-1310 Thank you and hopefully we get an opportunity to improve our score!
Always a great pleasure. Breakfast on the patio with the snow coming down was beautiful. Nothing like BVR.
Thank you for toughing out the weather with us!
What an amazing spot for an anniversary dinner! The food, cocktails, and service was all outstanding. I still can't get over the salted caramel pot de crème!! We cannot wait to return again :)
Thank you for celebrating with us! Happy Anniversary!
Perfect patio - sheltered and protected. Great food.
Thank you Lyn!
Really wonderful experience, would recommend......
Amazing food. Wonderful evening. And a gorgeous setting.
Thank you so much!
We had the best meal we have had all year at BVR. The food was hot, fresh and delicious. There service was excellent and the ambience was lovely.
Thank you for your kind words!
We had an amazing experience April 10! We celebrated our Parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary. It was cold and windy out! The staff did an amazing job supplying heaters and providing anything else they could. The food was great, amazing cocktails. We were the only table for most of the night- and not once did we ever feel pushed out, or rushed. Thank you so much for making the night a special one we won't soon forget!
Thank you Kate for the compliments and kind words!
Food was excellent. Even though we had to follow Covid protocols and eat on the patio on a cold evening, the experience was excellent. We were quite warm thanks to an overhead heater, our food was perfect and service was excellent.
Thank you for the kind words and choosing to celebrate with us! Happy Birthday again from all of us at BVR!
Very delicious food no doubt especially the lamb that I had was tender and tasty.
We had a delightful lunch on the patio at the restaurant. Really appreciated the heat lamp as it kept us very comfortable. Highly recommend The Ranche for fine dining!
Thank you for the review!
My sister’s birthday
Thank you for celebrating with us!
Such a beautiful place to visit, the food is always so delicious and the staff are so very professional! I highly recommend this place it has always been one of my favourite restaurant to visit.
Thank you for the great feedback!
The food was very good and the help the staff gave us in making our choice made the overall dinner well worth it.
Thank you Jim!
Thank you, happy anniversary again!
Wonderful night out. First class service. Quality food. Diverse local menu.
Thank you Michael!
Come here to celebrate birthday! The express lunch was delicious! Love the ambiance of this restaurant! Highly recommended!
Fantastic restaurant with good food and atmosphere in the middle of fish creek park.
Thank you so much for your kind words!
Very disappointed in the surf n turf. Very flavourful bison but not real tender. Also the amount of seafood especially was quite disappointing! For $100 you’d think there would be more food!
Hi Kim, Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear that the Surf & Turf for two was not up to your expectations. I've passed your feedback to your kitchen so they can improve for future visits.
Every time we go we decide to try something else and every time we go for the Surf and Turf again. Absolutely delicious!
Thank you Alex for your ongoing support! It is a crowd favourite for a reason! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
The Bow Valley Ranche was our first experience with fine dining in over a year.
We were excited to be dining out for Easter dinner & The Ranche did not disappoint!
Thank you Hilda for the wonderful review!
I went to Bow Valley Ranche for their Easter brunch special, as a treat to myself because COVID meant I wouldn't be gathering with family or friends. It was everything I hoped for as a break from reality - absolutely delicious food (the Croque Madam), exquisite service and lovely ambiance. With a window seat looking out over the grounds, a quiet room and the leisure to linger over my meal, it was the perfect way to celebrate the holiday.
Thank you for the wonderful feedback! So glad we could make it a memorable one!
We had a beautiful Easter Brunch at the Ranch, as always the food and service were outstanding. Thank you 🥂
Thank you for joining us!
We went the Bow Valley to have Easter Brunch as we do every year plus other occasions. We both had the Eggs Benedict. They never disappoint! Everything was amazing. Food, service, staff. Thank you again for a wonderful experience
Thank you for your continued support Linda! So glad you enjoyed everything.
It was a great experience, highly recommended. We enjoyed our Saturday brunch so much.
We ordered the tenderloin with fried egg, but our server brought the steak frites. We were in a hurry so we just ate it but it was disappointing. I find people don’t really listen to what is being said anymore.
Thank you for your feedback! We do not have a tenderloin steak on our lunch menu. We do have a club sandwich with beef striploin and a fried egg, is that the lunch entrée you are referring to? Regardless, our apologies for not clarifying your order and we'll be looking into the situation. If there is an opportunity to discuss further, please call Suzanne at 403-476-1310
Always a very enjoyable experience. Food and ambience are excellent.
Thank you for your kind words!
The express lunch was great. Delicious and very generous portion. A nice lunch out.
We had the express lunch menu. Everything was a good portion size and the taste was amazing. Our server was energetic and knowledgeable. They accommodated my drink order to reduce the sugar, and were considerate enough to rim my glass with lime, rather than sugar syrup. We will definitely be back.
Thank you for the detailed review! We look forward to seeing you soon!
First time going, definitely won't be the lasy. Went gor brunch and had eggs Benedict. Very good.
As always everthing was amazing from food to service .
