Italian Farmhouse Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
We love the Italian Farmhouse. Unfortunately our last few times we have been let down by the reception. It has caused us to cancel reservations. The service and food is great as every time we go. The reception don’t seem to care for the customer and are not very helpful. 7/10 overall.
Sat in a private room which was very nice, but right by the bathroom. Some of the people at our table could smell bathroom smell. That wasn’t too pleasant for them. Tried to close the little curtain which didn’t help much. Other than that our experience was excellent!
I can't really comment too much on the menu as we had a set menu for New Year's which was fantastic. Most of us ordered the beef tenderloin which was enjoyed by all that ordered. The wait staff was friendly but maybe a little overwhelmed as the food took quite awhile to get to us. Our reservation was 5:15 and we were there for 3 hours but again well worth the wait. Love the ambience and the different colour of plates etc. I would definitely recommend and would definitely go back for a regular meal to see if it is just as tasty and to see if service is faster.
LOVE the Italian Farmhouse! It just keeps getting better. The menu has so much to offer and the nightly specials are amazing.
We went for a very casual pizza night and the goat cheese we chose and sausage was very tasty.
Staff is good and well-trained; friendly, efficient but not annoying.
A beautiful drive too. Waaayyyyy nicer than the same old in the city. But sshh- don’t tell anyone.
We took our staff for an end of year celebration to this restaurant. We were nervous about the drive but the food, wine list and cocktails at the end made it worth every moment. We had a 3 course meal complete with wine and cocktails and were pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the bill was at the end. All the staff were friendly and very accommodating. We'll definitely be dining here again and recommending it to everyone we know.
Food was great. We would have loved the option to sit on the dining room side where we've eaten dinner before and the experience was very much more special because of the views. This is what bring us here. So, if lunch customers could enjoy the dining side that would be perfect. No views on the lunch side unless you get a front window. Again, food was excellent.
I like the atmosphere, the service. I am impressed by Joseph's history in Bragg Creek in carrying on a good tradition since the original owner Walter Trunzer introduced the Bavarian Inn. His professional knowhow and management is excellent and shared by my guest as well.
I look forward to invite relatives, friends and business associates in the future.
Really enjoyed our evening. The only disappointing part was our dessert. We didn't enjoy the cannoli but our waitress noticed this and removed it from our bill, which was great (we didn't even have to ask). Otherwise our food was very tasty - we shared two appetizers and really enjoyed the meatballs and risotto balls. All our entrees were delicious. Thanks
Great evening, food was exceptional, service very good as well. Was somewhat disappointed with where we were seated - hallway outside the bathroom which is the connector between the entrance and one-half of the restaurant. Did not appear overly busy so not sure why we were sat there when I had made reservations. Otherwise was a great evening!
A disappointing dining experience. The food was bland, the service, while pleasant, was inattentive (soup was served without spoons, servers had to be asked twice while the soup cooled!) An 18% service charge was added to the bill because we were a group of six! A group of six dissatisfied customers who are unlikely to return.
This is my second time here and it definitely did not dissapoint. This restaurant is cozy, sweet, charming, homey and wonderfully whimsical. It is the cutest little place tucked away in the woods, perfect for a romantic date or a special family dinner or a girls lunch/dinner. The food was also absolutely fantastic! My husband and I enjoyed our evening here after a long week at work tremendously. Thank you! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family. I cannot wait for my next visit to the Italian Farmhouse in Bragg Creek.
We discovered the IFH restaurant about 2 years ago and it has become our favourite go-to choice ever since for birthdays, anniversaries or a wonderful lunch. The food never disappoints. The ambiance whether inside or out is ideal, warm and cozy in winter, airy and cool in summer.
It can be intimate, or as one would expect an Italian family dinner to be, somewhat boisterous and somewhat noisy (but in a good way).
My one critique re our last visit was a lack of beer choices or it could have been a lack of knowledge of what brews were available. Although my 3rd choice was served in a 'Peroni' glass, apparently IFH does not serve this fine Italian beer. I know, picky picky.
I would recommend taking a beautiful drive along highway 22 to Bragg Creek and top it off with a great meal or lunch at this fine Italian restaurant.
It took too long for our server to initially greet us and take our drink orders. This was uncomfortable as we were a party of 6 and 18% gratuity is assumed in billing. We ordered coffee after our meal and that was also taking an unusually long time so we cancelled the coffee order. It turned out they were making a fresh pot so communication would have been helpful. The food was delicious with many gluten free options. We were sat close to the open door and it was quite chilly.
This was the first time I visited the restaurant and I had high expectations based on the location and website. I had family visiting me in Calgary and thought it would be nice to drive out to Bragg Creek for dinner. The establishment is nicely situated in the trees and cosy inside. The pizza was good, but shell pasta dish that I tried was pretty standard fare and was quite small for the price. The artic char special was nice enough fish but was served on a bed of broccolini that had tough and chewy stalks. The food and service were okay but, to be honest, I probably would not make the drive from Calgary again especially to visit this restaurant.
We took my parents who were visiting from England, after having several recommendations. Unfortunately our experience was not that great. We seemed to be seated at a lovely table, but unfortunately it felt like we were in a corridor as loads of guests for a private party arrived and were stood behind us for a very long time. This also seemed to affect our service as our waitress didn't know we were there and therefore waited a long time to get served and a long time for our appetizers to arrive. The food was pretty good when it did come. Overall was disappointed as it looks a lovely location and wanted to take my parents somewhere different and unique. Maybe we just caught it at a bad time.
I was there about 2 years ago and had the most amazing ceaser salad ever, but this time it was just an average ceaser. Disappointed with that but my appetizer and meal were awesome. I had the Aglio which was a roasted garlic bulb with gorgonzola cheese and peperanta on baguette and the ravioli all'aragosta e gamberi which was the seafood stuffed ravioli with a zambuca dill cream sauce, so much flavour. I will definitely go back!
