A quiet anniversary dinner for two was a food lovers delight. Our server, Chris, was very attentive and helpful, especially in the wine pairing. The 'platter of local game meats' gave us the variety of tastes we like and the escargot gave us a brilliant variation on this traditional favourite. The mains, as always, were incredible. My 'elk ribeye' was... More

As you pull up to an old building on the side of a busy road you see a pair of restaurants. Open Range and Big Fish. If you choose Open Range's door a large cocktail lounge greets you. We were met by a lovely hostess who gave us a choice of a quiet drink as we waited for the rest... More

Great wine list too. One of the better meals I've had in recent memory. Everything perfect: from the service to the way my steak was done to the desert menu. Not cheap, but it was good value. Comfortable atmosphere - elegant without being too sophisticated or stuffy. Highly recommend for anyone who likes whiskey cocktails and meat (but the vegetables... More

We had visited the best steakhouses everywhere we went. This was the best in Calgary: exceptional food (quality meat, cooked to perfection), prompt and pro service (they do not need the menu to understand your order or to make recommendations), proper ambiance and, well, the music was right. Prices and portions size are totally to our pleasure (I am a... More

The food and service here were fantastic. From the outside it looks like it might be a cozy hole in the wall steak place, but once inside we realized that while it was cozy, it was also very nice and white intimate. The food was fantastic, the service was wonderful, and this is another place we will be heading back... More

It doesn't look like much on the outside, almost hidden as it is on busy Edmonton Trail, but oh my gosh, the food! This is a good old-fashioned, high-class, but not-stuck-on-itself steak house that features Alberta beef (top of the class) and meat from other free-range animals. Their accompaniments are tasty and great for sharing. Cocktails are from the top-notch... More

Went to Open Range last week. Didn't look like much from the outside but had a real charm and warm homey feeling inside. It was not very busy and the service was prompt. We had appetizers and entrees. Based on the reviews, my expectation that I was going to wowed. The service was good. The food was OK. We tried... More

We recently enjoyed a beautiful meal in the Open Range Restaurant. The setting was excellent and very comfortable but the quality and flavours of the food were outstanding. We would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant if you are in this part of the world!

Why did it take us so long to come here after all the great reviews? We couldn't have had a better dinner from the delicious mussel appetizer, the mains were perfection and I have to encourage you all to make Open Range your dinner choice tonight!!!

My Mom and sister-in-law and I visited Open Range back at the end of June. I've been here several times over the years and have always been pleased with the quality of the food, service and atmosphere and was confident that this would be a restaurant experience that both of these first-timers would enjoy. I couldn't have been more right... More
