Diner Reviews
  • "Food was good, calamari was great, the steak was good but disappointed it wasn't bigger for the price and could have had more sauce. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. The desert menu could have been better, not alot of selection. The seafood pasta was bland but certainly gave you a lot of it."

  • "My partner and I had an absolutely fabulous experience at the primrose. We attended pasta Wednesday. The food was amazing. More than enough for what you pay. The waiter was delightful. He gave us complimentary glasses of champagne as he noticed we were celebrating an anniversary. This was my second time at the primrose, on both occasions it has been fantastic experiences. I will most definitely be returning in the future."

  • "I went with 6 friends to the Primrose and had an incredible time. The service was so friendly and they made us feel very welcome. One of my friends has bad food allergies and they were very accommodating, the chef even came out and talked with her. The food was well presented and very flavorful, I had the best steak I have had in years. We were sat beside the fireplace and although it was dark outside they had this cool green light that highlighted the trees by their skating rink. Primrose is one of the better restaurants in town, the staff are well trained and they seem genuinely happy to be there."

  • "Awesome restaurant. My husband and I went for our wedding anniversary and were very happy with our experience. We got a table with a beautiful view and they were great dealing with and accomodating with my allergy issues. They also surprised us with a complimentary beautiful and very tasty desert for our anniversary. Our waitress was great as well and the food was absolutely delicious. The prices for food are also excellent, especially for the quality of food. Highly recommend."

  • "Not usually impressed by hotel dining rooms, but this one is as good as advertised. Located in the tourist mecca of Banff it has great service from student waiters and well prepared food with a strong Italian influence at dinner. Their brunch on Sunday is wonderful with offerings including smoked salmon, freshly prepared omelettes, all with spectacular views of the Rocky mountains. Both brunch and dinner the night before were good value for the price paid"

  • "We have been to this restaurant four or five times and always enjoy it. This meal was however our least favourite. We have had excellent specials here in the past, however this time there were no specials. The menu has also changed and there isn't as much choice as there used to be in the appetizer section. We both had a veal main (ossobucco and saltimbocco) and both were quite good. Dessert choices seemed somewhat limited and pretty standard this time around. Ambiance and service remain first rate, however. We will go back, but will probably try some other places in Banff first."

  • "Went to the Tuesday pasta night. Salad, pasta dinner and dessert were all first rate - all done with a masterful touch with a delicious result. Restaurant itself beautifully appointed - finishing materials, decoration and furniture all first rate lending to an overall ambiance of elegance and grace."

  • "While vacationing alone, I met a lovely man who took me to dinner here. Our waitress was forever a blessing to our experience. She was exceptional in her service and education of product. If I ever visit Banff again, I would be silly not to pop a visit here again. Jess - The GreenBean Californian"

  • "I booked dinner at the Primrose because they said the view was exceptional. From our window table we could see across the hotel and into peoples rooms. We got to watch a woman work out while we tried to enjoy our dinner. Less than romantic. Skip this restaurant and make a reso at Eden or somewhere else downtown."

  • "The view was magical as the sun set. Main entrees were pastas & steak only w/ some other options on side menu. We didn’t care for the bread selection and the tapenades were an odd blend. I ordered the Insalata Itialiana. It was large! It came with garlic toast for some reason. My friend got the Prosciutto Melone salad. We were both surprised that it was cantaloupe melon. This cantaloupe tasted off, like it was frozen/thawed, or soaked in something. It was not good and she put it to the side. The servers did not ask her why she did not eat them?! The risotto was superb! It was the best risotto I have ever eaten. We did not order desserts because we were too full. As a 2nd choice to the high-priced Eden in the Rimrock Hotel, I suggest it."

  • "I cannot say enough great things about the Primrose. From arrival to departure, the service was impeccable, the food was amazing. Our group that evening collectively hails from the Tourism, Hospitality and Restaurant industries. We were all in agreement, that it was an evening to remember and one we will share with others."

  • "For our honeymoon, my husband and I recreated the trip we took to Banff in 2011 when we got engaged. This included a stay at the Rimrock hotel and dinner at the Primrose dining room. We have always enjoyed our meals, the service and the ambience of the Primrose, and would highly recommend it for a romantic dinner."

  • "The meal was very poor quality. The vegetables were extremely overcooked, halibut was dry. We were very disappointed in the food quality which is a shame as we enjoy staying at the Rimrock. It is very unlikely that we will visit the Primrose restaurant again."
