Eden - Rimrock Resort Hotel Ratings and Reviews
We ordered a four course dinner that exploded into nine courses, including two amuse-bouches. The service was perfect, as one would expect in a place such as this one. And our taste buds were blown. This was a French Laundry experience but in Banff and at a fraction of the price.
Was highly recommended by friends. Views were exceptional. Service started out well but dwindled into a 1.5 hour standstill after receiving our overpriced bottle of wine and two "amuse bouche" one bites. The restaurant was not even half occupied so couldn't figure out a single reason to wait two hours for our meals. Though we were seated in the middle of the restaurant seemed like we became invisible. They apologized for the wait but offered no reason. The meals finally arrived and were very disappointing. Small fortune. .. Small return. Ruined our night. Won't return.
Top 5 quality of food I have ever eaten and top #1 in service. Very professional.... yes. But if you are a couple or group with a sense of humor and fun, they will go "there" with you. Very expensive yes... but if you are in the Banff/lake Louise area or eve a trip from Calgary and want a single "price is no object night" this is the place - because it is worth that splurge!
Without a doubt, Eden deserves its name...not only is the ambiance elegant and sophisticated, the service is beyond exceptional and the food is an experience that every couple should share at least once! From the quiet elegance of the decor to the superior service and attention to detail, eating at Eden is delightful. The cuisine is original, creative, fresh, inviting, and delicious beyond explanation. We celebrated a big zero birthday and being at Eden made the day! Recommend the three or four course with Eden wine pairings!
I booked Eden for our 20th Anniversary and couldn't have been happier about that decision. The service, food, & atmosphere was beyond my expectations for this special occasion. They really went out of their way to ensure we were given the VIP treatment. We expected a high price point but it truly was one of the premier dining experiences we had ever had and in my opinion was worth it.
The restaurant has an enviable reputation. We can only assume they had an off day as it's been our only disappointing dining experience in our three week Canadian holiday. We've happily paid more than double in London restaurants but in terms of value for money, this felt like an expensive mistake. The beautiful presention of the food was not matched by the taste. The waiter was excellent and utterly charming but his good work was completely undone by the loud and opinionated Sommelier who was only interested in telling us what he liked (where he'd been and what he'd done) rather than in listening to what we liked and tailoring his suggestions accordingly.
My husband and I were celebrating our 40th anniversary at the Eden Room of the Rimrock. It was the tastiest and most memorable dining experience we have ever had. The food was delicious , presented beautifully and the staff were knowledgeable and gracious. It was a lovely evening.
We visited the Eden Restaurant on our honeymoon. We were treated in an outstanding manner by the staff who are very well prepared and professional. Food & wine pairing were both excellent! The view & the location are stunning. Thumbs up & keep up the great work. Worth revisiting & highly recommended!
We came for the food and view. Started well. But 3rd course took 25 minutes to arrive (our server disappeared, and the other servers / maitre d'hotel did not pick up the slack). Restaurant was not too busy to provide backup (maybe 6 or 7 tables had guests). Food was good, not top notch on the night we visited--attractive plates, but a bit bland. Good wine pairings. Unbelievable view.
My daughter and I made an overnight trip to the mountains to hike and enjoy each other's company. We booked our dinner at the Eden dining room before arriving and are so glad we did. We thoroughly enjoyed the vegetarian sampler menu, the awesome service of the sommelier, and the excellent attention paid to us having a fabulous experience by all of the serving staff. The views out the window are simply incomparable. Can't wait to return!
In April, we had the pleasure of dining at the Eden. Although the Eden is a 5 diamond restaurant, it still managed to exceed all expectations on many levels.
From the hostess who seated us, to Luke our sommelier, Gus our server and Benoit our maître d, we received excellent service and superb recommendations on both the food and the wines.
At a restaurant of this caliber, one might expect the service to be stiff or stuffy perhaps. Pleasantly, such was not the case with our evening. Not only was the dining experience exceptional, but we truly enjoyed the staff's playful banter throughout the meal. They were truly engaging.
By the end of the evening we were not only delighted with every aspect of our experience, we felt like we were leaving friends behind.
A superb choice for mine and my fiancee engagement dinner. The food was incredicble and the service was outstanding. The waiting staff attention to detail was attentive without being intrusive. It was worth the expense as the dinning experience included a chauffeur service back to our hotel.
An absolutely gorgeous restaurant with a beautiful view. Our wait staff was incredible - very friendly, knowledgable and professional. The food was to die for, we often found ourselves saying "now THIS is our favourite course" which would change as soon as we got the next one. The wine pairings are very well thought out and add a whole extra dimension to the meal. I would come again without hesitation the next time I'm in Banff if my wallet allowed. Obviously a restaurant of this calibre will come at a higher price, however Eden shows you why they deserve what they charge. Not one complaint from our experience, everything was amazing.
I have eaten at restaurants all around the world and have very high expectations when I dine out - this restaurant with its exquisite food and unobtrusive and impeccable service hits every mark. I enjoyed the chef's tasting menu and each course dazzled and delighted in its creativity and flavor. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Tip: if you reserve your table for a 6pm or 6:30pm seating, you can request a table by the window - stunning view of the mountains!!
Not enough words in the world to describe the experience, service and wine. It''s perfect to celebrate what we had as a 25th wedding annaversary falling over valantine 2015. The meals are original fantastic, but french cusine. Sometimes I had to look for my magnifying glass to see what's on the plate. Other than that it was great.
Fine dining in a (relatively) relaxed atmosphere. The staff were outstanding and the food was some of the best I have had in Canada. Interesting combinations of flavours and textures and the wine pairings balanced beautifully with the food. One of the pairing selections was not to my partner's taste and the staff substituted a perfect wine after gentle quizzing her as to her preferences. Our initial reservation was for a celebration, but we had such a great experience we returned for dinner the following night. Eden earns it's rating as the top restaurant in Banff.
We went to Eden as a family because one of my children is a super big foodie (age 11). My other son is a budding vegetarian. The staff did an absolutely awesome job of making each and every one of my family feel like they were the most special person in the restaurant that evening!! I know that it was an expensive meal but from my point of view worth every penny spent.
This experience was flawless from start to finish. The staff were all courteous, friendly, and engaging. The view - spectacular. The ambience - romantic and inspiring. The food - divine. We ordered the four course meal, and were not disappointed! If you're on the fence about dining here - DO IT. It will be, hands down, the most amazing dining experience. Guaranteed!
Service was mostly good. The wait times between wine pours and food pairing was unusually long. The food was below average for the class of restaurant. The sommelier was very knowledgeable about wines, being the high point. I would be embarrassed to bring a client here however.
