Eden - Rimrock Resort Hotel Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely wonderful! Can't say enough ...
Absolutely wonderful! Can't say enough about the service, the food, the ambiance. The whole experience at Eden was spectacular. We indulged on the Grand Degustation experience which was 10 courses of delicious-ness. Presentation of the food is amazing and we had a special treat with the palate cleansing granite - would like to share but must leave some secrets for the next people who indulge. Staff is amazing and very knowledgeable with descriptions of each of the wines chosen and the food presented (love when they describe what you are eating).
Overall an amazing experience!

Embarrassingly pretentious. The wait staff went out of their way to speak loudly when discussions of food and wine were occurring. The couple next to us was admonished for selecting a wine in the 200$ range. A couple two tables away was chastised for asking if they could share an item. When my wine pairings arrived, the sommelier was very loud, almost boastfully arrogant with his descriptions. Sadly,it was all for show. My Elk tartar was bland and greasy. My "wagyu" showed no marbling and was more chared than the medium rare ordered. This was our wedding anniversary. We skipped dessert and tried to leave the restaurant without another scene from the employees. Great views of the mountains. I want my over $300 back.

We were very excited to spend our anniversary dinner at Eden. Unfortunately the experience did not live up to our expectations, especially given the steep prices. Canapé starter of crab was fishy, husband couldn't eat it. Bread, especially GF was excellent. Trout canapé again, very fishy and tasted off. Bison tartar was inedible for me, and my husband ate it and was ill the next day. Herb flan appetizer was unique and outstanding. Main courses, lamb was fantastic but my husbands Bison was inedible, salty, tough and tasted off. Dessert was the berries, which was 80% flavourless gelatin. In addition my husbands water needed to be replaced, we were drinking bottled water and he said his water tasted like coal oil. What was good was outstanding, was wasn't was awful. Very, very expensive for the mixed review.

Special Occasion Dinner Music that night:
'Cause wham bam you broke my heart and I hope that you had fun
(Wham bam thank you ma'am) Hope you're satisfied
You took my heart and tore it apart you hurt me deep inside
I'll never be a fool again you really crushed my pride
(Wham bam thank you ma'am) Hope you're satisfied
Perhaps edit the songs off the soundtrack that don't fit with special occasion dining.
Somehow I accidentally insulted the Sommelier in one sentence asking about the restaurant? and that tainted the evening negatively by 5-10%. My bad. My apologies.
Food was great, interesting and beautifully presented. Table was fabulous. Location was stunning. Time of day was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed the food!

Wonderful evening! We were at Eden two years ago, and loved the reserved, formal meal. This time, with 2 other couples, we were having a lively evening and the service staff perfectly matched our atmosphere. The food and wine were wonderful on both occasions, and the view is world class. That said, while the service was outstanding on both of our visits, the true testament to their skill was the ability in both instances to match their involvement to that of the table.
An outstanding evening (again).

Outstanding dining experience… four of us had the four course dinner with Eden wine pairings. While pricey, the food and wine were outstanding. The serving team consisted of four people who were attentive, well-informed, entertaining and funny - they included a serving team assisted by the maître d' and sommelier. This restaurant has received and deserves many accolades. We highly recommend it.

An exceptional evening, extra ordinary food. We chose to do dinner with wine pairing, although an costly evening, it was worth every penny. The food, service, atmosphere and presentation was enhanced by the extra-ordinary attention of the Sommelier.
An evening to remember.....

OMG!!!! This is the most amazing restaurant we’ve been to in a long, long, long time. It was the hit of our vacation. We had a window table overlooking some of the most beautiful mountain views around and that was not the best part. The food and service was second to none and we've traveled the world. My wife ordered a three course, I a four course dinner. The wine paring was excellent. The atmosphere is quite yet enjoyable, wait staff were very friendly and engaging but not over bearing. They seem to almost appear out of thin air at just the right time to accommodate your every need and request. We cannot say enough great things about Eden. Highly recommend it to anyone who wants an amazing dining experience.

The tasting menu is worth it! I'm not an adventurous eater, and I'm trying to push myself to try new things, and this was just perfect. Yes, the ingredients may not be what you are used to but the flavors and the tastes are just perfect. We loved the dramatic molecular show during the cleansing palate course, and the attention to detail was exquisite. If you are in Banff, do yourselves a favor and a flavor and GO!

We had an absolutely wonderful evening at the Eden Restaurant. We booked online and asked for a window seat in the early time slots which we recieved. We could then watch the light fade over the mountains as our taste buds were tantilised by the amazingly flavoured and well presented range of dishes. Along with the what we had ordered were the unexpected surprises sent out by the chef for us to taste. I felt it was probably the best restaurant I have been to for the all round experience.

Our travel consultant recommended we dine here while vacationing in Banff. Wow - this was the best dining experience of our 2 week trip to BC and AB!!! We had a table by the window and the view was breathtaking. We both ordered the tasting menu of 6 courses and to go with it a bottle of Beaujolais that Benoir the assistant manager recommended. Our server let us select an entrée and dessert off the ala carte menu since we were not crazy about what was on the tasting menu. Even the bread is made on the premises which is served with 3 different butters. After 3 appetizers of King crab, lobster, and partridge, we get our main course of boar - prefect medium rare in a brown sauce. A cheese course followed and then our chocolate coconut dessert that was unique and delicious. Service was perfect. We enjoyed talking to Benoit. And the banana bread with white chocolate they gave us to take home was soooo good. A perfect dining experience we will remember for many years.

We recently dined at the Rimrock Hotel & had the most wonderful night. My sister was celebrating her birthday & we decided to dine at the Rimrock, what a great choice. Great food & the staff treated us like royalty. After dining at the Post Hotel in Lake Louise where we were treated as second class citizens it was a great experience - thank you for making the night so special!!

White tablecloth, scenic mountain views, lots of space between tables, amazing and one-of-a-kind food dishes, skillfully selected wine pairings, and three servers attending to us. What else could one possibly ask for?

This is one of the best dining experiences you could ever have. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by friendly, courteous people, happy to help you have a very enjoyable meal. First the view is spectacular, the mountains are amazing. Then the food, sheer perfection, everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly. There was a wonderful abundance of extras, an amuse buche, a delightful soup course, and a palate cleanser at the end and we were also sent home with a piece of delicious banana bread. Our order was cooked to perfect the Waygu beef was exceptional, the scallops I ordered were the best I've had and the desserts, Chocolate was like eating a dream and Citrus was so light and cleansing. The service was impeccable. Benoit was never intrusive but charming and witty and had perfect timing, as did everyone else there. Please if you are ever in the area, splurge and enjoy.

Incredible view, and staff. We were not only served like Kings and Queens, but fed like them as well. Amazing cuisine, great chef with attention to detail and eager to please, and the wine list is beyond exception!

Eden went above and beyond our expectations! We loved the ability to choose our courses throughout the four course dining meal. Service was excellent and the view was amazing! They even gave us a piece of banana bread on the way out as a parting gift!

Four girl friends since junior high school now living around the world flew to Banff and due to busy schedules had only one night together to celebrate turning 40. We chose the Eden and let them know it was a special night when booking online through Open Table. We weren't sure how seriously they'd take our online request for a nice table to honour the occasion - they went above and beyond, offered us the private room and then pampered us with amazing service all night long. We could not have asked for a better venue or experience for our one special night - outstanding tasting menu and wine pairing.

The staff went above and beyond with the service and the food. Everyone pitched in to make the experience special and outstanding. Even the hostess delivered food and cleared dishes. I selected the wine pairings with my meal and when I complimented the wine choice the staff was quick to refill my glass. The experience exceeded our expectations and we left with gifts of chocolate dipped banana bread as a thank you for dining with them.
Would definitely recommend this restaurant to a foodie and will certainly make it a stop on my next trip to Banff.

It is impossible to simply state that the food at Eden was tremendous. The whole evening was an “experience” which we will not soon forget. We were graciously welcomed and guided to our table which had a majestic view of the mountains. One of our party had dietary restrictions which were immediately written down and handed to the chef. Within minutes of being seated the Maître d’Hotel, Chad, came to our table and so began a whole evening of entertainment. Julie, our sommelier and server, took the time to explain any questions we had. As we started the meal off with a glass of champagne, the first of many, many courses arrived, including an extensive selection of breads and butters. Take a picture of each course as you will never remember afterwards what you ate! The person with the dietary restrictions was given different foods to comply with our requests. Each dish was presented to us with a full explanation of every single piece of food. There is the main-dish food, but the “plus” are the little food dollops (about the size and shape of a chocolate chip) of pure flavor poised perfectly on the plate. As you savor these tiny morsels your taste buds will explode relishing the flavor. Each and every dish is a pure work of art which only compliments the delicious food. The wine pairings were very well thought out as each wine enhanced the flavor of the food. We concluded our culinary experience with a tour of the kitchen. It was amazing to see the chef decorate a plate with mushrooms so small they had to use tweezers to do the correct placement. In addition to wonderful food and wine, our evening was brightened by the entertaining Chad. We laughed the whole evening as he made sure our every single need was met—including fresh napkins. Eden is truly one of the best restaurants we have visited and is definitely a place not to be missed.

Food was impeccable. Beautiful and delicious. Wait staff did not give the food presentation justice. When explaining a course, waiter was rushed thus serving presentations are not in the level of a restaurant with Eden's caliber. Sommelier was knowledgeable and attentive. We received a gift to go as it was our anniversary. Very nice touch. View was spectacular.

Excellent meal and service. My only complaint is that we indicated that it was a milestone wedding anniversary and we were not sat at a window table even though there were two available. The views are so spectacular and special. A window table would have made it that much more special.

For us, this was totally outside our norm for dinner - special occasion or not. Sit back, relax and be served a meal that will be remembered for quite a long time.
You can choose a variety of ways to dine - from tasting menu to a "number of courses" menu of your choosing. We chose the 3 course, Pairing meal and it was memorable. Wine pairings were wonderfully made by them and it forced us to drink wine we would not have chosen.
Be prepared - this does not come cheap, but we don't do this very often (or at all). Good job by all who waited on us that evening. It was quite an evening.

Eden is a top notch dining experience. OMG! I reserved a table citing that we were celebrating a milestone bday and from the moment we checked in to the moment we left, we were treated to the best customer experience ever including several surprises from the chef throughout the night. Unbelievable. I highly recommend Eden for a classy and amazing food experience. The food was out of this world delicious.

The experience was top notch from start to finish. We were there celebrating my mom's 60th birthday and were given the back private room with the most unbelievable views. We ordered the tasting menu and unlike almost every other fine dining tasting menu, the restaurant was not only happy to accommodate food sensitivities but also swap any dish from the a la carts menu. The food was as good as the view.

From artistic presentation, impeccable service, excellent menu and delectable food and drink topped by the majestic view our evening was a memorable experience. Highly recommended. Too bad we don't have Michelin stars.

My wife and I dined at this restaurant during our tour of Canada. The service and most of the food was superb. We chose to have three courses with accompanying wine selection. The quality of the food and presentation was excellent with some nice added touches of complimentary pre course tasters.
My wife had the Scallops to start which she really enjoyed and I had the herb flan which was well presented, although not as tasty as expected and was spoilt due to containing a small pebble!
For our main courses we both had Brant Lake Wagyu which was fantastic. To finish, my wife had cheese and I had citrus, both of which were lovely.
This is a fine dining restaurant with great food and service. The existence of a pebble in my starter was unacceptable and was not handled well by the waiter who dismissed it as one of those things that can happen when food is served in a slate platter. The offending pebble was not a piece of the slate. In my opinion, they should have been very apologetic and made an adjustment in the cost of the meal. Had it not been for this, I would have rated it 5 star.

This was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. We were seated at a window table with a fantastic view. We each chose the 3-course menu with the Classic wine pairing. It did not disappoint in the slightest. We each chose a different app, main, and dessert, with wine for each course, and everything was incredible. The service throughout our 2.5 hour dining experience was unbeatable. Everywhere else looks cheap and shoddy compared to Eden.

Wonderful experience and meal. Wines on tasting menu were excellent. Views were spectacular. The only recommendation to improve the overall experience would be for management to change the music played during the meal. The Jazz and other music selections were terrible!

We had a wonderful experience! Staff were attentive and courteous, adding a personal touch to the service. The food was incredible - definitely try the Elk tartare. The location and view could not have been better. They even drove us back to our hotel instead of calling for a taxi. Consider this place for any extra special occasion, or even if you simply need an escape for a few hours!

The prettiest, most delicious meal I have ever enjoyed!! Pricey and worth every penny! Gorgeous, innovative, creative presentations as well as delicious! Can't wait to come back. Service was impeccable.view is breathtaking!

Incredible place; jaw-dropping views of the Canadian Rockies, gourmet experience in every way. Service was first class, wine list was outstanding, and although the restaurant is pricey (certainly by Banff standards), it's actually a good value. I would rate this one of the best meals I've ever had anywhere-- and I'm a NY'er!
