Had a great time with friends Saturday night. Cozy, warm atmosphere with great food. Dessert special was fabulous. Great service. Wide choice of mains and wine. Highly recommended.

Walking into Open Range gave me a western type feel. It has taxidermy on the walls, nice fireplaces and very quiet atmosphere. The menu had a small selection but very focused on organic type food (buffalo, lamb, beef). The steak that I had (peppercorn steak) was terrific, the best I have ever eaten. The staff was really friendly. Great place to take a date or quiet evening out.

Recommended by a few friends, finally had the chance to visit. Convenient location and a cozy, if dated, setting. Food was OK, a little too much sauce on the meat, overwhelming the delicate flavour of the game meat. Value isn't quite there either.

Good service. Have been here before and had a server who had an attitude and was very unaccommodating re dealing with the bill. We were a large group and he left us unsatisfied. Thought we would try again for the food. This last visit the server was great. Nice ambiance. Food this last time seemed overpriced and the elk was dry. Other dishes at the table were uneventful which was disappointing considering the cost.
We have been here several times and are on the hunt for elsewhere.

The food was decent but really not worth the price. The decor is quite stuffy; this is not a place for a relaxed date. The main negative thing that really turned us off was that the manager was quite rude to us. He snapped at us when we moved tables and remained unfriendly. The waitress was nice enough but I wouldn’t go back.

We are here on a Tuesday and tried some of the tacos and they were amazing. We also split the porterhouse which was huge and tender and delicious. The service was wonderful, our waiter was knowledgable, cheerful, and helpful but not intrusive. Fantastic meal overall.

Great food and very rustic using game meat in their menu. Casual but in a fine dining atmosphere. Only drawback is the lack of parking. But worth the trip.

This was the final meal of a gourmet trip across Canada and it was a great 24 oz. porterhouse steak dinner for two. Outstanding friendly service, good wine and perfectly cooked meat. Our #1 choice for dinner in Calgary.

This was our second time at Open Range, the first for our anniversary a few months ago and it was a wonderful experience. Our good friends wanted to celebrate, so they asked if I would make a reservation here as they have been numerous times.

Unfortunately, we were left feeling somewhat disappointed. The enchiladas were dry, the rib chop was tough, and the service was ok at best. Our friends are quite reserved, and they didn't want to make a fuss about the food; I'm prone to bring things up right away but they asked us not to, so I acknowledge that we didn't provide the opportunity to make things right immediately. Part of their reluctance was our server- She was sometimes accommodating, but I think she was trying to be edgy and maybe a bit funny or something, but her attempted level of "comfort" with us mostly came across as unprofessional and a bit rude (she rolled her eyes and acted unimpressed with us a number of times).

When it came to pay the bill, we had 2 cards for free wine or beer from our anniversary dinner. I had them sitting on the table all night but she didn't see them, and when I brought it to her attention, she said "you can only use one of those", despite it not saying so anywhere on the card. I said "I'm sorry, where does it say that?" but she walked away.

So to summarize, we won't be hurrying back. Our first experience was SO good we were really excited to return, but unfortunately it doesn't seem that there's consistency with food quality or service.

The Stampede inspired menu was tempting - we indulged in the corn dogs which were amazing. The entrees we ordered were all excellent and Shannon provided wonderful service. We would come back just to see her but there are a number of items on the menu that we have to come back for.

This is the 3rd or 4th time that we have dined at Open Range food was very good. However, my wife did not care for the mussels I thought they were great. The main entree was very good and I cheated my diet and had dessert which was awesome. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Food was nicely prepared and presented. I had the prime rib feature of the day. Meat was a little rubbery but very tasty. Potatoes and veggies were delicious and Yorkshire pudding perfect. Calamari appetizer was nice but over-the-top garnish on it was annoying. Companions' food was good but they also commented on the excessive garnishing. Service was prompt and efficient though the waiter seemed like he was thinking of other things and wasn't the most friendly. Ambience is perfect - low key, comfortable, quiet. Will come again.

Had a good meal here on Mother's Day with my mom - though I should have looked a little more closely at the online menu, as there was a limited number of options for an older person who's not too adventurous in her food choices. Mom had the beef tacos, minus the avocado and with the sauce on the side - as it turned out, it was a little spicier than she's used to, though she enjoyed the food. I had the lamb shanks with 2 great big chunks of chorizo (or at least an Alberta version of it - not very spicy in this case) sitting on a bed of polenta. Overall, the food was good and the service was pleasant. Being Mother's Day, there were a couple of large parties and a number of children, but that didn't really take away from the experience.

I am so glad I chose this spot for our anniversary!! Even though we were on a strict budget, it met every need we had which was steak, cocktails, wine dessert and fairly quit! I love it here and server Amanda, bartender Evan, and chef Dwayne were also amazing, fun, and informative!! Will definitely go back!!

We went here for the first time for our anniversary. We originally were seated in the dining area, and there was a loud business group so we asked to move and we were immediately seated in the lounge. What a lovely space, with nice music and gorgeous art, which perfectly complimented the amazing food and outstanding service. We had the fritters, porterhouse and short ribs and each was beyond excellent! We will certainly return.

Service was courteous but didn't give us bread, every other table got them and was asked for more throughout the meal! The 3 course meal had great flavour, but the entree prime rib was so small in portion for price but even worse was NOT tender. I had expected better than nice hotel diner prime rib. The appetizer was small too like a teens' palm full. The strudel dessert was great though. I still provided fair tip even though we have second thoughts returning.
