We found the atmosphere had a nice ambience to it, cozy & warm.
The menu was quite extensive & included a wide selection & options.
The service was excellent.
Just need a few more roadsigns to get there as GPS didn't seem to work!!!

The atmosphere at the historic "Ranche" restaurant in Fish Creek Provincial Park was wonderful, the food was very good and very nicely presented, and the service was exceptional. The only improvement I could suggest would be adding a few of the lunch menu items onto the weekend brunch menu to offer some variety other than items with eggs.
Everyone in our group enjoyed our meals (including very tasty desserts, which we do not normally have), the ambience of the restaurant, and the great service. Also, the park is a great place to go for a walk after a very filling and satisfying meal.

My husband and I went here last night for our 4th Anniversary. The restaurant was so cozy and warm. You just felt great in there on a cold night. The service was AMAZING!! Martin was great, he found me an amazing wine that I LOVED, he offered to take pictures of us on our date night, and picked the perfect location in the restaurant for the picture.
The food was the best lamb and steak we have ever had!! We ate super slow bc we didn't want it to end. We are a younger couple so going to a place like this was a treat as we are on a family like budget, but we will 100% come again on our next special night out. Thank you Bow Valley Ranch for a great date night and Martin for being the best waiter we have had in a long time.

This restaurant has always been in my top 3 restaurants for Calgary, sharing a top spot with juggernaut 'Q Haute'. The food never lets you down. The times I have gone, there weren't many tables, but don't let this fool you. If anything, it only made the meal that much more appealing. The staff always takes extra care of us, and the service is prompt and professional. The menu is always fresh and features a variety of local meats. The presentation is pristine, enhanced only by the taste itself. This quiet, secluded restaurant is as shiny of a gem as one can find here in Calgary. For those of you who are afraid to pay a little more for amazing food, there are a handful of fast food restaurants up the road about 5 minutes.

Brunch is best!
We recently went for brunch and were pleasantly surprised to find out they had updated their brunch menu. Their new waffle with greek yogurt, berries and nuts is delicious. If you like thick French Toast, then this is your place. I would bypass the pastries platter and move straight into entrees. The service is always top notch and we love coming here.

Awesome meal, as was the service. We hadn't been to the Ranche for a few years (since the new ownership) but the menu is excellent, the food very well prepared and presented. The crew accommodated us by pairing wines with the courses. A very enjoyable evening. Highly recommended - we will be back.

We have been here twice in the past 2 weeks and both times were amazing. This last visit was the best meal I think I have ever had. This is our favorite restaurant and we are never disappointed. I always recommend it.

Incredible meal and ambiance! The charcuterie board and our mains were incredible. The service was lovely and not snobby like most high end restaurants and they treat children with the utmost respect with an incredible gourmet menu. The server even brought out a special birthday surprise for our daughter!

We started with the charcuterie board which was fantastic. Nice selection of meats, cheeses and pickled items. We opted for the Surf and Turf for two; again it was wonderful. Bison, scallops, shrimp, fish and plenty of veggies. We ended with the heavenly tiramisu. Service was great; very attentive. We will definitely be back.

My Mom treated my sister-in-law and myself to a birthday lunch. We had never been before and were very pleased with everything. The food (two had the striploin and one had the salmon) was fabulous. We love our food and we were not disappointed. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

We visited the Ranche for lunch in late September. We were hoping to sit on the veranda but unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate. We were seated at a table inside by the window so were still able to enjoy the lovely view. We ordered the lunch special which included a starter, main and dessert. Everyone's meal was well prepared and tasted delicious. The service was excellent and we had a very enjoyable lunch. We will be back and would definitely recommend The Ranche to others.

Our family went to the Bow Valley Ranch to celebrate a family birthday. Our server was professional and took care to make our evening special. Our meals were well displayed and each meal tasted wonderful. Our family would definitely go back for a special occasions. This restaurant is not a value priced restaurant and should not be confused with one.
