Loved Dana and food and service was over the top
Enjoyed it all...from the moment we arrived...our angus beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection... presentation on all four courses was a delight to the eye! Our waiter was excellent..had interesting facts of area and had a good sense of humour!
Very good food and great service. The restaurant is suitable for all special occasions. Loved our experience. I have booked another reservation taking our other friends to share the experience.
2nd time here - excellent food, friendly service (Jenna?) and beautiful location.
The food was excellent and the setting is very pretty in Fish Creek Park. It is situated in an old house that’s beautiful. The ambiance is really something. The service was very good.
Where do I start? Bow Valley Ranche is by far one our favourite restaurants in Calgary for fine dining. We went on Saturday to get dinner with our friends and everything was fantastic. My husband and I enjoyed the tenderloin steak cooked to perfection. Our friends had the cod and the lamb and they thanked us later for this dining experience. The entire team was extremely professional. Our server Alecs was fun but did not push boundaries. The atmosphere was so cosy... We can't wait for the patio season to open
So far best restaurant in Calgary! The food was amazing, the service was exceptional and the ambiance unique!
Great service, food and ambience. Went for afternoon tea, generous portions, great ambience.
Always great to dine within the beauty and nature of Fishcreek park!
Amazing and tasty and such a lovely view. Like being on vacation somewhere.
Great!!! Had a wonderful time. The food and service was what we expected.
It was for a birthday. So romantic! The staff was very friendly and helpful, food was amazing! Absolutely a great experience
We were using a travel zoo coupon and we were still treated very well from the minute we walked in the door. The menu had a nice variety. We ordered the bake brie as an appetizer it could have been a bit warmer but the taste was great. My husband had the Ling Cod and it was cooked to perfection and the sides were very good. I choice the pork option and it was a bit dry but the spatzle they accompanied it was excellent. Carrot coconut cake with carrot sorbet for desert was very nice finish to the meal.
Service was excellent and the ambiance was worth the visit.
We will go back
Great location, great food and wonderful staff. A perfect spot for a get together.
Great experience for the 4 family.
Still consider this to be one of our top choices for a special meal
Great Food, Great Service, Lovely Ambiance.
The dining experience was worth the Higher Prices.
It was a celebration dinner for my Wife’s Birthday.
We were made to feel most welcome as soon as we arrived.
The service was excellent and the food was delicious.
Many thanks to George (Judy!!), Martin (for the amazing “soufflé-chino”), and Francis, for making the evening remarkable. Great service, great laughs, great food, and an incredible atmosphere. George, the wine was perfect, and your kind smile will bring us back. Thanks for the glasses so my husband could read the menu, and I’m glad we brought some light to your night, as much as you did to ours. Francis, you’re outgoing and energetic, and your openness is contagious. Martin, you took such good care of us, and thank you for the beautiful picture you took of us in front of the house. We both are looking forward to coming back!
Had a great time at the Ranche catching up with some friends from Victoria! A nice place to bring out of town guests with an excellent brunch selection and warm service!
Will be back soon!
Great food and service. The steak is a must, it was amazing. This was our first time visiting and we will be regulars. Great food for the price.
excellent service, great food. Jazz Thursday is a great time to come!
We normally love this restaurant, however we were very disappointed with our Valentine’s Day date night experience. There was a 5-course meal that we chose our selections from, which seemed to deviate from The Ranche’s regular game-fare. We were happy with the choices though and had the tuna crudo, poached pear salad & borscht, baked brie
Food was regular, service terrific. It was a valentine's day dinner but way too expensive considering what you get
Always a great time and the food is fantastic! The menu for Valentines was perfect! Can’t wait to go back. Thanks!
We went the day before Valentine's Day, and were wowed by the location and scenery, the owl in the tree outside, the postcard-perfect image of the restaurant outside, and we hadn't even entered the restaurant yet! We chose the Valentine's sampler with wine pairing. All courses were amazing, but the initial appetizer was easily the best we've ever tasted, with tuna sushimi and a fruity vinaigrette that was absolutely perfect! Our waiter was fun, pleasant, and very attentive. Will be going back.
Great ambiance, food, service and location for a romantic evening with your loved one.
The food, service and ambiance are fantastic! We went for my mother-in-law's birthday and had a great experience. The staff was super friendly and welcoming as they sat us at a long table (there was 7 of us) in front of the grand fireplace. There is nothing better then sitting by the fireplace on a cold winter's night enjoying a delicious meal prepared by the extremely talented Chefs. Our server kept us entertained and laughing all night with perfectly timed jokes. Not only was she hilarious, she recommended a great wine that went with everyone's meal. Also the kitchen is fantastic at accommodating food allergies. We have the 3 big allergies (nuts, dairy and gluten) and all we had to do was mention these to our server and everything came out of the kitchen perfectly. They must be magic in the kitchen because I don't know how they can make everything so tasty without dairy/butter and they even have a dessert that is dairy free which isn't sorbet or fruit. They really made us feel special and even put a chocolate plaque saying happy birthday on my mother-in-law's dessert. Everyone was so happy with what they ordered! We definitely did not leave hungry, the portions and quality are very generous for the price. The menu has great local ingredients and is so fitting for the restaurants beautiful location in Fish Creek Park. We could not be happier with our experience and I would recommend everyone try this gem. We will definitely be going back!
We have visited restaurant twice and enjoyed it very much. In a world of haste and fast food it is really nice to enjoy a meal in old fashioned ambience.
The food and the service was great, the only drawback is the pricing. Other restaurants in the city have equal or better quality food at a cheaper price.
Romantic place for a date. The food and service is top knotch.
Food is very tasty and beautifully presented. Good selection of food. Exceptional and very friendly service that knows how to make you feel special. Our waiter knew about any item from menu and made the recommendations. He also helped us to choose good wine. We enjoyed our dinner a lot and wish that prices are little bit better so we can come more often.
Always an amazing experience. The food was incredible and the service was outstanding.
I booked a dinner for 2 for my husband’s birthday but I was very disappointed with the service and server was little rude to us. The food was not at all worth the price. We ordered lamb and steak dinner, both were very dry and we had cold soup. If you are paying $200 for 2 ppl, I expect a high end service. We’ll never go back again.
Everything was amazing. Service from Martin was exceptional, we had a TravelZoo and he treated us very well, explained the food perfectly. We did not feel rushed. Love this place!
The ambiance at Bow Valley Ranche is just lovely as it gets you into a country feeling while still being in the city. All four of us are foodies and we were very pleased with the food -tasty and creatively presented. Our birthday request was tastefully managed with a 'Happy Birthday' message written on chocolate and presented with dessert. And then the waiter came outside with us as we were leaving and took photos of us with our phones with the Ranche building in the background. It was a wonderful experience all round!
Excellent food, excellent service and most importantly, wonderful ambiance. We had a beautiful evening and will surely return, but it's not cheap at about $80\ppl with wine and dessert.
Wonderful location, excellent staff, food fit for a king, cozy ambience.
Greeted in a genuine manner, appropriate wait between appetizers and the beautifully presented main course. Servers attentive without being obtrusive... The setting in Fish Creek park on a winter's night was magical.
A top notch staff is evident from the moment we arrived until we left.
Looking forward to summer meals on the verhanda
Afternoon tea was awesome
The only thing needed is definitely more cream and jam for the scones
The little creams and jam are only really enough for one scone if that
Delicious food, charming ambience and great service! A little loud, due to a 'loud talker' at the next table - no big deal. We mentioned to our server that everything was great except for the side potato, which desperately needed salt and flavour - and she brought us two ports on the house, which wasn't necessary but was appreciated. This restaurant continues to impress after several years.
