  • Amazing and perfect !
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/20/2014
    Eden is obviously bout the meal AND the staff that give you an incredible experience. We where at the Eden to celebrate a special occasion. From the very start until the end, it was simply amazing ! My husband and me had the 6 courses and between each courses we had the time to talk, we just had a beautiful couple evening. The meals are the best, it is an experience with the food. At the end of the meal, the gave us an extra. It was a big glass plate with a white cholate writing Congratulation and the table was all smokey because of the dry ice inside the Plate. When we left, someone brought us to the door and we have a gift bag with to cake inside. Just perfect...

    My expectations were high before the meal and all were met and more. The service was the best I have experienced in my dining journeys, both friendly and expert in advice. We asked the sommolier to pair the wines for us and there was certainly no disappointment there for all three diners. Little extras arrived that were unexpected and they were just divine. I especially loved the small ravioli in an exotic broth. It was light, full of aromas and flavours setting up the palate for what was to come later. This was not an evening to just devour food but a full on dinning experience from the moment we stepped out of the car.

    Pork entree was pork three ways, each one a small taste. the menu said it included brussel sprouts - yes, three leaves, not even one whole sprout. Luckily there was a bread basket with four kinds of bread and three kinds of butter/spreads. I'm sure everything was very labor intensive, foamed squash, etc., but it was lost on me.

    We loved dining at Eden's for the second time in the past 7 years. A true gourmet experience but not stuffy or awkward. Eden's strives to give you a fine dining experience, one that will be memorable and exciting. Without a doubt, the best money spent for a culinary adventure of a lifetime including the service as well as the delightful creations coming from the chef. We will be back!

    Eden is billed as an elegant dining experince but at some point the pretentiousnous becomes a distraction to the enjoyment of the food. The four course meal with the Eden wine pairing which goes something like $250 a plate. The courses are artistically presented and elegantly served but the portions are ridiculously small allowing for a small bite or two of each dish. The entire four course meal including all the decorations on the plate (which were many) could have been served on a tea saucer. The wine pairings were excellent but I got the distinct impression the "somolier" had just memorized the tasting notes for each wine. When you get the bill for $600+ for two you have to ask if it was really worth it.

    We did the chef's tasting menu with the wine pairing. The food was fantastic, especially the elk. We enjoyed all of the wines that came with the food. The butternut squash soup was the best we'd had. Will definitely come back again.

    From the moment we walked into this restaurant it was amazing! We love to go to nice restaurants; although expensive it was worth it! Through open table I requested a quiet, private table with a scenic view and that is exactly what we got! We had great service right away and all through our dinner. Definitely a dinner we will remember!!

    All of the service, from the complementary valet parking on arrival to the baked gift on leaving was first quality. Every course was not only delicious but also a work of art. The taste of every element had obviously been considered and designed for each dish. The presentation was remarkably well designed and implemented in detail. The care in the cooking and preparation was obvious. The quality of the ingredients was impressive. The service was impeccable and informed. The Sommelier was friendly, open and well educated as to the wines available and how they would pair with the various dishes. We have been to restaurants in many countries. The Eden Room does Canada proud.

    Overpriced. The food, although looking "pretty"flattered to deceive. Came away feeling hungry and in total shock at the cost of it all. $410 (Canadian) for two courses , 1 bottle of wine ( the least expensive on the list) and 1 brandy. A pretentious sort of place without much atmosphere.

    We came to Banff for one night only specifically to dine at Eden. We had stayed at the Rimrock before but were unable to get a reservation at that time. The experience was everything we expected. From the artistic presentation of each course on the Chef's Tasting Menu to the exquisite Eden wine pairings to the exceptional and knowledgeable service and sommelier staff, our evening could not have been better. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    We sat next to the window with a fabulous view of Rundle mountain. The wait staff was great, not condenseding at all, and none of that how is everything every minute. We chose the two courses with wine pairings, appetizer and entree. The food was fabulous and very nicely presented. First there was a treat from the chef of salmon row, then some great breads with a selection of butters and cheeses, then the appetizers with wine, then the entres with their wine pairings, then some delicious treats served on a platter with a dry ice effect. We always has something to do with no long waits. To top it off we picked a very nice (with help) Chateau Montifaud 50 yr Grand Cru cognac. Definitely an indulgence but worth every penny of the bill!

    Perhaps my expectations were too high. Eden did not come close to meeting them at all. Overall the food was average with only one standout, the lobster. We did the Eden wine pairings, most of which were terrible and uninspired, we did enjoy the Sauternes. The main sommelier seemed standoffish and uninformed, the remainder of the staff was quite helpful. As a comparison we ate at the Chateau Lake Louise the day after where the food was much better and wine pairings better. I don't have a problem paying for a good meal, however when I pay and done get a good meal or good wine I take exception. I would be surprised if I ever eat here again and would definitely not recommend to anyone.

    We cannot speak highly enough about this place. From the moment we arrived, the service was incredible. From the valet walking us to the Maitre D and introducing us, being escorted to our table, and being address by name by every member of the staff! The staff was incredible warm and friendly and knew the right amount of contact to always be around when needed but not be overbearing. And then there was the food! From the first amuse-bouche, to the dessert amuse-bouche everything was incredible! Portion sizes were not so small, like most fine dining restaurants, but just right. Everything tasted incredible and looked beautiful as well! I don't generally write reviews, but the experience at this restaurant was to good to not share!

    This was our first time at Eden and will not be our last. From the moment we arrived - we felt 'treated'. The service was the BEST and the food was like nothing we have had before (and we have dined in Calgary, Toronto, Las Vegas and Chicago....to name a few). We were looking forward to trying our first Five Diamond Experience and now we know WHY that rating is there. We enjoyed the four course meal along with a bottle of wine. Everything exceeded our expectations - well done, Eden - WELL DONE!!

    In general we have been unable to find good food since coming to the rockies for a week. The food here was well executed with international standards, service was quite good, and they were quite friendly with our kids, even took them into the kitchen for a quick tour! We went to quite a few top rated restaurants in the banff, lake louise area, this is by far the best.

    I received a reminder earlier in the day reminding me of the "Dress code". I can only assume only a few diners were notified as at least half the male diners whilst I was there would not have been allowed in. I was sat at a table looking at a guy dressed in a polo shirt, jeans and track shoes. There were others in tartan shirts and jeans. For the main course I had a lobster tail which was superb--my wife had the lamb which she also enjoyed. The rest of the dinner was very average and I was not impressed at all. Not over expensive but I fail to understand the reviews of this restaurant in Trip Adviser.
