Beautiful venue, food was delicious, it just took a long time to get it! We ordered olives for the table to snack on while we perused the menu, they didn't appear until just before the rest of our appys. I guess it was fairly busy but if we'd had the olives to snack on we wouldn't have minded the wait for everything else....

My guest & I shared the Arancini Balls for an appetizer.
Delicious!

I had the Gnocchi & my guest had the Seafood Fettuccine.
Both were flavourful & fresh.

I had the Chocolate Pate for dessert - the BEST I’ve ever had.

Josh was our server & was efficient & engaging.
Excellent service.

Worth the drive from Calgary & then some!

The only reason I can’t give Italian Farmhouse full marks is because of the cost. It’s a bit expensive, and therefore, not of outstanding value. That being said, the food and service were both outstanding. We came from Calgary to celebrate my friend’s birthday and had a great lunch. We started with the warmed olives (something new to my guest) and the delicious Arancini con Formaggio (deep-fried risotto balls) - lovely and cheesy with a little spice from the chipotle tomato sauce to make them perfect. My friend had the butternut squash ravioli in what I seem to recall was a pumpkin and cashew cream sauce. She loved it! I had the Cesare (sic) salad topped with a baked salmon filet and it was cooked to perfection. For dessert we shared the tiramisu and I especially loved the whole coffee beans as a garnish on it. 😁

Only reason I rated service for 4 star is there was only one server for busy weekday lunch time. He was working hard in that challenging situation so I am rating him 5, he said it was unusual volume for weekday lunch time that day.

This upscale farmhouse has a wonderful ambiance without being pretentious. The experience starts with the picturesque drive from Calgary to the restaurant in Bragg Creek where it's nestled in the trees. The staff are attentive and the food is delicious and fresh. The wine menu is small but has great choices with organic options as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a date night.

The group tables were too close together and we felt squished like sardines at our table. They seat 6 people at a table that should probably just seat 4. I would strongly recommend rearranging the tables or removing one altogether to give more breathing room. Not a great ambience and overly noisy. Our waiter was nice and attentive. The food was ok, but the elk was underdone and the ribeye steak was a very poor cut. The beet salad was below average. The calamari was good as was the focaccia bread. The lemon chicken was way too salty. We expected a better experience for the price. Sorry to have to leave a bad review.

Dear Open Table User, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience. We do apologize that you and your guests felt squished. As it was a busy Saturday evening the dining room can get noisy with other guests and we are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your evening. It is important for us to address problems before you leave the restaurant so we can try and remedy the situation. Please feel free to contact me on my private email.

We’ve already recommended your restaurant to some family/friends - and they are so looking forward to dining there, real soon.
I had some dietary restrictions - gluten free - and I was well informed about what I could and couldnt have.
The food was very tasty - lots of flavour - and all the dishes were absolutely delicious.
The whole atmosphere was very warm and inviting.
Love the dining experience in your restaurant.

Thank you.

One of the best Italian meals we’ve had!
We had the calamari appetizer - always a favourite - and had the steelhead trout special. The trout was perfectly cooked and served hot over a bed of excellent risotto. As it was a birthday celebration the service afforded several nice touches - including Prosecco to start. The service was just right - helpful, thoughtful, and not intrusive.
Will be back!!
