We ate here twice during our stay, once for Christmas Eve dinner and once for breakfast. Both meals were buffets. The food was very mediocre and disappointing. Perhaps the food quality is better when there isn’t a buffet, but I won’t be returning.

Pasta buffet at the Primrose- a Birthday tradition for our son. Complimentary Prosecco was a nice touch as was the valet service! My husband was in a wheelchair so we were relieved to have been shown the elevator to access the restaurant rather than stairs. Service was exceptional! Food was great as always. We felt desserts weren’t up to their usual standards. Nice to be back !

We were so disappointed with our experience at Primrose. Have been here before and this was not what we were expecting. Over 2 hours to receive adult entrees and over an hour to receive kids chicken fingers and fries. The positive thing about the experience was the manager on duty was more than fair with removing the adult entrees from the bill and gave 35% off the remainder. We would have rather had a more pleasant dining experience than the discount.

Primrose is a lovely place for a special dinner. In our case - a birthday. The room is large but doesn’t feel cavernous. The view of Mt Rundle from the huge windows is stunning. The staff who attended us were very professional, friendly, kind, attentive but not in your face. The menu is well balanced. We started with scallops and made-in-house sour dough bread. Delicious! My entrecôte was perfectly cooked and seasoned. My partner’s duck was the best we’ve ever tasted. All in all, if you are looking for a first class restaurant in Banff I highly recommend Rimrock’s Primrose Room

Went for the pasta bar for $32. Started with a create your own salad, plated up fancy by a chef once you’d made your selections. Then a buffet of refined bread, cheese, smoked fish, shrimp and mussels.
Then for the main event, another create your own, with 6 vegetable options to pile up in a bowl, and 5 meat options, hand those off to the chef to be pan fried and combined with choice of 3 pasta types, and 3 sauce options.
I absolutely loved everything about the above, my only complaint being the size of my stomach!
But not yet over, then came the dessert bar, which would be worth $32 all on its own!
Creme brûlée, tiramisu, Oreo cheesecake, strawberry cake and chocolate fudge brownie, but the big deal here was the fruit chocolate fountain, two in fact if you like white chocolate!
Topped off with a fine espresso, and I had to roll myself out of there!
Awesome service, friendly capable chefs, an absolutely incredible view, in a nice fancy dining room with a fantastic ambiance, great music, and quiet enough for conversation!

Ridiculously great value, will definitely plan to come again when I’m in the area!!!

Cannot recommend more highly!

We booked a table ahead of time. Soon as we arrived Rim Rock Resort the concierge asked for the car key, directed us to Primrose inside the resort and advised we have 3 hours complimentary parking. From the moment we entered Primrose, we were cordially seated and well looked after. Our server - Jeremy, was attentive and make us feel at home. I had tortellini and bison short rib - yup 2 entrees. Wife had scallop as appertizer and lamb. We then had 2 desserts. Presentation of every dish is amazing. A great fine dining experience, without Michelin pricing. When we exit the resort, the concierge spotted us and gave us the car key. Bravo!! Rim Rock Resort rocks.

Chas (manager), PJ (server) and the Chef went out of their way to make this a truly great experience.

My family has a lot of allergies and they went above and beyond to ensure our meals were delicious and were prepared with our allergies in mind.

I cannot say it enough how wonderful it is to know I don't have to worry about my wife or son having a meal they can eat and enjoy when we go out.

On top of that, PJ engaged with us on a personal level. He engaged my young son directly on his level which made my son feel like he was the little man he is.

Oh yeah, on top of that - the view of mountains is FANTASTIC! Always a treat to have a table near the window.

We happened to mention that one person at the party wasn't a fan of salad (as it was included in the mean purchase) and not to waste the food by bringing it to the table. The restaurant serves a sample of something when seated and that night was a salad. But since we mentioned this salad aversion for one of the party, a substitute was offered so that not to feel left out of the taster. Never have we seen this type of incredible service, normally the taster would just not be offered. 11 out of 10 for service from Matthew at the Primrose and PJ, the manager, amazing. Thank you both for a wonderful experience.

We were looking for a restaurant that we could spend the evening celebrating our anniversary.
The dining room was quiet, even though there were quite a few patrons.
We had the scallops and the bison short ribs. Both were very delicious! Although we hoped the portions were slightly larger.
All in all, very nice experience, and you can’t beat the view from the dining room!

We booked two nights at the Rimrock Resort to celebrate our 50th Anniversary, even if it was one year late, due to COVID-19 restrictions. Having a nice meal in the Primrose Dining Room seemed to be a perfect venue for our celebration and it exceeded our expectations.

We were disappointed in our evening our here. The food was tasty but the service was disappointing. We were asked 3 times whether we had any allergies in the space of less than 5 minutes. Once by the hostess who seated us and twice by our server. The server was also a sommelier but was less than interested in helping with wine choices and given we had marked the occasion as our anniversary, help with a wine choice would have been appreciated.
