You’re paying .... and boy are you paying🤭 for the location - not the food which was mediocre at best. Big dining hall with a few antlers on the walls - not cozy
A beautiful setting and amazing food! The kind of food where you take your first bite and wonder how the chef manages to make you melt with just one bite. Yes, it's a tad on the pricey side but, with the quality of ingredients used I don't mind. Carve out enough time when you dine here to truly enjoy every bite!
One of the best restaurant in Calgary....outstanding service and food..
I took my husband here for his Birthday, May.14,2019. We had a lovely dining experience from beginning to end. The river valley makes for a scenic backdrop that does not dissapoint. We sat on the patio and watched the wildlife while enjoying a well paced and perfectly interactive meal. The menu is diverse and the food was delicious. I’m sure there’s not a dish that would dissapoint. The service was top notch, very professional and they even indulged us with taking a few photos of us in front of the restaraunt. I would return again!
Best dining experience in Calgary for a long time.
Excellent service, great food and beautiful location.
I would highly recommend this restaurant on everyone. Good Food, Good Price, Good Ambiance and Good location.. We always keep on coming back on every special occasion, not even once have a bad service or anything.. Keep it up guys..
Jose our server was outstanding. We've never been disappointed.
Overall it was a fantastic mother’s day brunch. Food was amazing! Overall service was ok but it was the beverage service that left something to be desired. Refills were not offered and drinks either arrived very slowly or were forgotten altogether. This was the only issue to an otherwise great experience.
Great food and accommodating as always! Service was amazing, will go back!
Wish I could remember our server, he was very polite and jovial. Was a joy to eat there. He has a unique name, from a eoropean country I believe. Ordered the steak, was the best steak I have eaten in my life. The potato served with it was magnificent. The course in itself was a special and pleasant moment. Will definitely go again. In my budget now you is. Thank you for giving me a special memory. One I will enjoy mostly.
Wonderful food and wonderful service.
I wish I could remember the name of our server he was fantastic!! Great with recommending items and very friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely be back. Thank you!
Great spot for dining with friends. Lovely location. Love the new summer lunch menu. Excellent value for the Express Lunch. We’ll definitely be back- one of our favourite spots in Calgary.
Lovely place to revisit. Excellent service. Dinner was enjoyed by all.
Always a great place to dine with family or friends . The food, setting and service are always great and a pleasure to experience.
Service was bad. Took almost 15 minutes for someone to see us. The server was rude. Was way too noisy. The food was very good but would not go back.
The food was tasty but service stops me from recommending this establishment
Probably one of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time. These folks have mastered service and decor, and the food was amazing. 10/10 we would definitely visit again.
Although the live music was very nice; we still found it a bit too loud to talk over. We do however like the fact that the tables are a good distance apart which gives a feeling of privacy.
Great spot for a function or date night. Great service and food !
Not for the financially faint of heart, but a lovely spot for a special occasion...
The food and service were amazing. The food was perfectly cooked and beyond expectation. The service was fun and very professional.
Great dining experience, we will definitely be back.
Lovely place to go for dinner. Fantastic service and really good food. Menu is a bit boring though. Food is pretty tame. I had the waygu beef cheeks and while it was prepared perfectly it reminded me of my moms pot roast as a kid and she used a very cheap cut of beef. Lol. Last few times we’ve been there the menu has been exactly the same. Not a ton of options and we like to try new things so it will be awhile before we go back
My wife and I visited for the first time on 4/25/19. The location is delightfully secluded from the city, the grounds and building kept well. The ambience in the restaurant is that of a heritage building, a rustic feel, and sufficiently comfortable. The food is excellent; we both ordered the tenderloin and were not disappointed. Presentation stands out, I have not been as impressed with food quality and presentation on the plate at any other Calgary restaurant. Each element on the plate was carefully designed; the whole and it's parts were all intentional. However, the one element of our evening that stands head and shoulders above the rest was not food or presentation, but a quality human being. Many thanks to Arjan for his exceptional service, passion for a great dining experience, refreshing authenticity, and genuine joy in sharing in our excitement about the whole experience, not least of which was the Tawny 40 we discussed in detail. We'll be back. Repeatedly.
very beautiful the ancient house.The food tasty,manager very professional and enthusiastic.I with my husband feel very good.
Excellent service, great location. Attentive service. Great place
We always enjoy walking into the restaraunt. The staff are very reseptive and friendly. After being seated our waitress came to our table , introduced herself and proceded to ask us if we would like a cocktale before we look at the menu. From there our evening started , the wine was fantastic , the food and sevice second to none, the atmosfere was very relaxing we sat by the double doors , to us any table next to a window or garden door is a great way to watch the wild life . If you havent been to the Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant you are missing out on a great dinning experiance , Oh and by the way if you have the time ask your server about the tour of the entire building, its very intresting. Cheers

Great food, wine and service. Will definitely come back. A unique dining experience.
Love this restaurant, I feel relaxed and enjoy every minute! Food is always outstanding!
Wonderful spot to have a tasteful meal and celebrate a birthday.
Authentic atmosphere, delightful food, great wine list.
We visited for Easter brunch so it was busy and the noise level was probably higher than usual. Food was amazing and our server, Francis, was excellent. They were even able to accomidate an extra person when the reservation hadn't been amended as I thought it had through no error of theirs. Great experience overall.
Given the cost and that the food was cold (they tried to rectify) but it was still not piping hot would say it was a big disappointment.
Very loud on special occasions. Service good but food could be improved upon.
As always everything was great I give you 10 out of 10 fantastic well done
Easter brunch at the Ranch was fantastic. Servers got a little confused at first, but after that was straightened out it was no problem. We took out of town visitors with us - they were impressed. Definitely would go back - what a great place for special occasions.
First time we have eaten at BVR in the evening and we were both very impressed with the service, atmosphere and the delicious food.
It's a great place to celebrate that special occasion.
Got married here and food was good still is. The bison tenderloin was excellent i.
It was our wedding anniversary
Loved the food and service and the house is beautiful!! Had to give less than perfect only because it was difficult to have a conversation due to the noise level.
