This is my second visit, the first one was OK (possibly helped by a boozy lunch...) so my other half and I went yesterday for our anniversary and were quite disappointed. We arrived bang on time and were shown to a table. The ambience is nice,needs some music or something though. It took 15 mins to get a drink and... More

I was looking for somewhere unique to have dinner with mother-in-law. This was a good choice. The food is homemade with a touch of unusual. I went on a Saturday night, and reservation was needed. Waitress said kitchen is small, so that made service somewhat slow - so go there relaxed. I'll return with daughters. enjoyed it.

I have been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. The food is amazing, and the people who work there are very knowledgeable. They also had very great gluten free options! I am always very impressed eating here.

I can't complain about the food, but the cost overcomes my desire to come back to eat it again. There is a point of diminishing returns for any restaurant that serves high quality fare and that point is obviously a moving scale for each individual. In my experience; I've paid highly for quality fare and been happy to return for... More

A wonderful spot for lunch in Old Towne Okotoks. The Heartland is found in one of Okotoks historic buildings and serves a selection of delicious soups, salads, homemade breads, a variety of luncheon items and desserts, all freshly prepared from (to the extent possible) local produce and meats. The Heartland is busy so either reserve or get there early.

It was my Dad's 79th Birthday last week so I picked up my parents in Calgary and we drove to Okotoks to enjoy a walk through the historic centre looking at the heritage buildings followed by lunch. The Heartland cafe caught our eye as it's located in an old church. The place was full at 1:30pm on a Friday so... More

My family and I have been here a couple of times and I can't say that our over all experience has been great. The food is good but pricey and always a long wait for it. If it's winter, it's very cold sitting against an outside wall. Then, in Jan 2014 I made a reservation and when we arrived, there... More

I came to this restaurant with my fiance for lunch ---- she's a chef at a cafe in England, and knows a thing or two about how a cafe should be. We were both very impressed -- the food was out of this world "delicious," -- the veal soup was a creation to die for, the pork belly sandwich challenged... More
