    Wow! Best wedding food we've had

    Wow! All I can say is wow! They were amazing, super accommodating and incredible. I'm a celiac with a ton of allergies as my guests have similar allergies and there was not one cross-contamination or issue with food through the whole day. They were incredible to work with, super responsive and the food...the FOOD!!! Wow!

    We looked at several places around Calgary and found the Bow Valley had the best food and best prices (me and my hubby are foodies). They offered a tasting menu which was incredible. They did a very thorough tour and never once did I worry about the venue while planning or leading up to the day. Everyone came to us after and said that hands down it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. I agree the steak and salmon were done perfectly. The appetizers were awesome and the service was outstanding. If I could do the day all over again I would do it here in a heartbeat. Amazing.

    BVR was an amazing and beautiful venue! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a place that's away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The food was also fantastic. The staff was incredibly helpful and professional. They made sure that everything was taken care of on the day of the wedding so I didn't have to stress. They also ensured that my husband and I were fed throughout the night and didn't miss out on the delicious food!

    The Ranche Restaurant is a beautiful venue for a small to mid-size wedding. The food is exceptional and the wait staff is very attentive and provided great service. My only issues are that my requests for limited bar service and a $2 drink fee was not honored. Some guests admitted to not paying $2 for their drinks and the bar served a few shots even though we had requested to not serve any shots. Other than that we are very pleased with The Ranche Restaurant as our venue for the ceremony, dinner and reception.

    The staff were extremely helpful in making everything perfect and run smoothly! The only downside was not being able to book any earlier than 6 months in advance.
