    Dined on 9/14/2014
  • "The service was amazing, the view from our window table was spectacular. The entire staff in the Eden mentioned our anniversary. The food was served with care to every detail.We would recommend this to anyone celebrating a special occasion. They made our 40th anniversary something to remember"
    Dined on 9/12/2014
  • "Best. dinner. ever. Excellent service & food/wine. Worth the price for an amazing dinner. Personnel sommelier was my favorite part."
    Dined on 9/7/2014
  • "It is a great place to really treat yourself with a top of the line dining experience! Pricey, but if you are into food and really would like to be pampered this would be the place!"
    Dined on 9/7/2014
  • "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."

  • "From the moment we walked in they were friendly and made us feel like everything was taken care of. They were quick to make everything perfect and a personal experience."
    Dined on 8/31/2014
  • "Perhaps one of the best meals we have ever had. The attention to detail, the quality of service were of the highest standard. The food was exceptionally well prepared and interesting."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "This is a great spot for special occasions. Very expensive but great food and superb service. Tasting menu eclectic but good. Four course choices may be better. View of mountains should be great - foggy the night we were there."
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "The tasting menu at Eden was absolutely stellar. Every dish was like a work of art and was pure decadence. We enjoy dining and had read good reviews but Eden exceeded our expectations. Our meals were delicious and service really friendly without being overbearing. A wonderful experience."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "There is a reason, Eden Room is Alberta's only remaining 5 Star restaurants! It is outstanding! The food, service, view, atmosphere, and wine selection make this more of an experience than a meal - a most memorable one to be sure. It is pricey and worth every penny"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "An amazing dining experience in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. The food and wine were exquisite and the service top drawer. Worth every penny."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Dining at the Eden is an experience that everyone should try at least once. Amazing. The name says it all - a touch of paradise for the palate and the soul. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable with impeccable skills."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "How can you describe such a great experience. The food is excellent, which it should be for this price. But the food and service is worth every penny. Definitely a great place to go for the special occasion. Would highly recommend. Just don't get a sticker shock!!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "My wife and I are both vegans, and Eden was truly amazing. They Chef's 7 course vegetarian tasting menu was modified to accommodate our diets and it was nothing short of spectacular. Inventive, creative and flavourful it showcased the best of local foods and Canadian flavours."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "We did the grand degustation and every dish was fabulous both in taste and presentation."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Our tasting menu was a unique experience. From the presentation to the intricate and intriguing tastes, it was memorable! Will do it again."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We did the 3 course with Eden wine pairing. Pricey, but worth every penny. They ended up serving 7 little courses all together and we received a special dessert to go as we left. The service, food, ambiance, wine and view were spectacular! The wait staff was extremely knowledgeable of the food and wine and could answer any questions."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Incredible experience, different foods, deserts with so many extras, amazing service from all the staff. A masterful place to dine! Worth going back!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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!!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "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."

    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Dining at the Rimrock's Eden does not disappoint. It is a special experience with beautiful food and wonderful service. We chose a three course meal with premium wine pairings. Be prepared to spend money so it's a once a year type event for us."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "If you're looking for something special, this place is over the top. Be prepared to be treated and to spend some $$$."
    Dined on 6/22/2014

  • "This is a wonderful place. If you want a dining experience in the Rockies, this IS the place!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "If you are looking to celebrate a special occasion, enjoy a romantic dinner, or just have an elegant meal, then Eden is definitely the place. My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary and opted to try the Chef's Tasting Menu, which was beyond amazing. The staff were all attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "The atmosphere was terrific, the staff went above and beyond, all with warm and welcoming personalities. The food was spectacular as was the presentation. The various samplings from the liquor trolly were exotic and good fun... I certainly look forward to dining there in the future."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "There is nothing that could be said of the view either then "amazing"! The food was all was fantastic. This was a bucket list restaurant for us and we are soo happy we got the chance to check it off. Minor notes (I even hesitate to write) the service could have been a bit more attentive. A bit....it was the little things like our water glasses being empty for a while; different servers asking us the same questions we had already answered; the option of having wine with dinner was pushed a bit too much, then for dessert nothing was offered at all. There was a group in the private dinning room that was so loud it became obnoxious and we were happy to finish our meal so we could leave."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Eden, at the Rimrock Resort, is a fabulous restaurant that is all the more fantastic given its location in the beautiful surroundings of Banff. The staff to a person, provide understated, high-quality service that makes the meal all the more enjoyable. The team in the kitchen provide food that is spectacularly pleasing to the eye and does not disappoint on the palate. We had a 4 course dinner with wines chosen by the sommelier that complimented the food perfectly. A not to be missed treat--especially given the location."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Eden truly deserves a 5 star rating!!! Everyone in the restaurant was so accommodating. We were late, as our train was delayed, they made every effort to put us at ease to experience one of the best dining experiences in Canada. The food was delightful, the flavors, the imagination in the recipes and the delivery were all exceptional. The Sommelier was a delight, knowledgeable and friendly. It was truly a magical night looking over the Rockies in Banff - a scene that cannot be repeated. "

  • "To say this is good, doesn't speak stongly enought of just how great the food, but also importantly the friendly staff. This was a night, of hopes that the food and wine would pair, and the night be relaxed. Instead, i had all my previous plans, not just fufilled, but was delighted that i had made new friends in Eden. Thank-you Chad, and Robert. Your knowledge of wine is as deep as your wonderful conversations. Im visiting again & again.......in my future visits to Banff."

  • "Wow! Our table faced the window with breathtaking views of the mountain valley. The service team was outstanding. We ordered the tasting menu with the "lower-level" wine pairings. Everything was fantastic. The food was one of the best meals I've ever eaten - the tasting menu was a surprisingly delightful journey. Several "bonus" items were served in addition to the six courses. Four hours later, we left feeling completely satisfied. If you can afford to spend nearly $700 on dinner for two - then definitely do it! If you can't then try just ordering fewer courses. There is nothing disappointing about this restaurant!"

  • "This restaurant is very good but not up to better european standards. We were a little disappointed. Eg fish was not very fresh. Steak was only good. Cheese was drying out too much or extreme over ripe. Overpriced and tiny portions. View is great. Think they are better than they are. "
