Excellent food, ambience and service. Our waitress amazing. Even another waitress who instantly turned around when she heard my partner drop his knife. She was there and picked it up before he did and she replaced with a cleanone.
We cannot say enough about the Restaurant and Staff.

Good food but Salmon main course was too salty and too complicated (too many sides and sauces)- not particularly tasty.

Love how it was decorated and very festive for Xmas. Really enjoyed the music. Food was fantastic and would definitely drive out from Okotok's again to eat. Beautiful drive. Plus, it was nice to finally get there to see where Cameron works as he is always telling us to come out. An enjoyable evening for our anniversary.

We were disappointed with the quality of the pasta and sauces. The drinks were never refilled and the children they put in our area were so loud and disruptive. Not worth the cost of you are expecting a higher level meal.

I always enjoy this restaurant. They have a great terrasse in the summer where you can share a wonderful salad, and pizzas, or some tapas. The evening has a tasteful menu. If the restaurant is full it is noisy but most of the time, it is just right. If I was wanting a romantic date I would request a table in a corner of the first floor. We shared a salad, and I ordered the duck, my husband the raviolis, our friends, the salmon, and char. It was all delicious. The only complaint with the raviolis is that my husband could had eaten more :)
This restaurant also host the spring and fall fashion of crabapple cottage store near by. A great evening for all, and a great sense of community from this restaurant. We love that!

This was not our first time, and again the Italian Farmhouse was superb. The meals as always wonderful. We especially love the braised short rib.
The only disappointment was the noise. The restaurant has three sections and the room next to the bar is too crowded with tables and ends up being really loud when full.

Calamari was raw, my wife and I got sick in our stomach. I ordered lobster Ravioli, there was none to none existence of the lobster in the ravioli, ravioli was flat and no flavor very blend.

My wife told me that her fish also was blend and did not finished it.

This is the second time we have been to your location, the first time it was a super experience but now I'd give 1 🌟 to the total experience.

Our bill was about $87, same as the first time but this time it was hard to pay it, value was just not there. The first time in the summer we were pleased to pay this amount.

Need to work on consistancy...

I don't think I would remmend your restaurant to any one based on these facts.

Thx,

S

It was a great place to celebrate my daughters birthday. We had our 1 year old grand daughter with us and when she got a little restless there were lots of good distractions to get her attention. From the appetizers to the dessert the food was nicely presented and tasted great!

We usually go to the Bavarian Inn when we're in Bragg Creek but this time we thought we would try the Italian Farmhouse after an afternoon of hiking, based on reviews. It was a mixed experience. We had olives and calamari arrabbiata to start, both of which were yummy. My husband's gnocchi were tender and in a delicious meat sauce. My veal marsala, on the other hand, was a mess! Ridiculous presentation with the meat on top of a pile of mashed potatoes and vegetables, so of course you can't cut it and have to immediately disassemble everything. The veal was un- (or under-) seasoned, as were the mushrooms, the marsala sauce was all sweet and no balance, Brussels sprouts were undercooked....I was really disappointed. I don't think we'd go back because we'd be worried about inconsistency.

The food is consistently fresh & delicious.
The choice of cocktails, beer & wine is extensive.

Our server, Keley, was efficient, knowledgeable about all menu items & courteous.

I enjoyed the Gnocchi, which had fresh mushrooms, tomatoes 🍅 & pine nuts in a
delicately flavoured Pesto Walnut Sauce. Yummy!

My friend had the Chicken Parmigiana, which was served with spaghetti & seasonal veggies.
A punch of flavour with each mouthful, according to my friend.

The Pumpkin Cheesecake was beyond yummy! My friend had the Cookies, Chocolate & Cream
dessert, which was also incredible!

Worth the drive from Calgary & area.
