Twice now we have chosen this restaurant to celebrate something special .unfortunately both times were extremely disappointing. The restaurant caters to parties in their upstairs room,but they seat private tables upstairs as well. We arrived for a great dinner.we reserved three weeks in advanced,but were seated right next to an extremely loud private party. Interesting enough this restaurant thinks a... More

We parked in the lot behind the restaurant and picked up a ticket at the machine that gave us four free hours. Walking in through the entrance off the parking lot, we entered into a warmly lit restaurant and were welcomed by staff. Our friends were already seated and we quickly joined them. Our Hungarian born waiter also welcomed us... More

Be it a romantic dinner, business meeting or girls night out, this is the perfect place to go. The food was fantastic, the serving staff were prompt, polite, friendly and knew exactly what wine or entree to recommend. The atmosphere is perfectly set with a classy yet friendly atmosphere. It really is a hidden gem in Calgary and I would... More

Some friends suggested Bonterra for a fancy night out without kids and we readily agreed, having wanted to go there for some time. The food was excellent, with some interesting twists, but hewing largely to contemporary Italian fine dining. The space is also great, with high ceilings and appropriately chic decor. We would definitely go back. That being said, the... More

Had a lunch at this restaurant which have not been to for some time. Service was good, food was tasty but limited. The restaurant is a great little setting with wonderful smells, but the food just didn't quite live up to the ambiance and wonderful aroma.

In a time of more closing doors in Calgary, and a few new ones - it is so comforting to an established restaurant that is committed to amazing food and service. It just feels great from the minute you walk in to the end of the meal. Short ribs for 2 - don't miss it! the pasta is amazing and... More

At least once every summer I try to get to Bonterra to enjoy and experience their beautiful patio. I had the chance on Friday when my dear friend took me there for a catch-up conversation and lovely lunch. It was a cool afternoon, but the overhead covers and patio heaters kept the area warm and dry and we were able... More

My wife and I went here for our one year anniversary. The food was very good, servers were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The restaurant was very nice.

By the sheerest chance we stumbled across this restaurant on our first ever stay in Calgary. It doesn't look like much from the outside but is very pleasant inside. We had a wonderful "roasted chicken dinner for two" (it had a much fancier name but memory fails). It was beautifully presented and delicious and included a selection of delectable roasted... More

The patio here is absolutely beautiful, but there was nothing special about the food and the service was extremely slow. We were there for over 3 hours as a table of two, and it wasn't very busy.
