It was a bit noisy because there were several large parties also having dinner at the same Tim’s.

Food was way overpriced and it felt like a two star restaurant. I ordered the black truffle linguini and it was floating in oil. We ordered the cotton candy dessert thinking it would be a modern twist on a well known classic. It looked as though someone scrunched it with their hands. We could see finger indents. Not worth it.

We had to wait 45 minutes extra even though we already had a reservation from open table. Portions were way too small for the price point. Our server Mitch was amazing. Only good thing about the experience was him.

It was a great place with good food but the servers were a little novice and the tenderloin was slightly undercooked. I would definitely eat there again but it might have been a couple of rookie servers..

We enjoyed celebrating our 31st anniversary at the Primrose restaurant this past Saturday evening, January 18, 2020. Our waiter PJ was exceptionally attentive and informative. We were seated next to the kitchen door and were disrupted by kitchen staff. When we brought this to the attention of PJ, he immediately involved the maître d' Chas. Chas handled the situation in a very professional manner and was a true gentleman throughout the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the service by Chas and PJ was exceptional. I would highly recommend the restaurant to all.

New Year’s Eve. Was a fixed menu. For the amount of $135. + drinks I thought the food would have been exceptional. It was ok and some of the courses of the 4 course meal I just didn’t care for. Waiter was very good and the room is pretty.

3 of the 5 of us had the seafood buffet, which was terribly disappointing. Not a huge selection for $55 per person. Besides the raw oysters, we were not impressed by anything on the seafood buffet. Further, the desserts on the buffet bar seemed like they were leftovers from Christmas dinner as they were all dried out and gross. For example, the rice crispy Christmas trees were hard enough to break a tooth. The other two in our party had the beef tenderloin and the chicken breast, neither of which were outstanding. Towards the end of our meal we went 30 minutes without seeing our waiter. We would not eat at the primrose again.

Everything was just lovely for my mom's 85th dinner. Food was absolutely delicious. My daughter and I had the salmon and my mom had the steak. Although the noise level was really loud by 715 730 around the buffet area and lots of traffic back and forth ... so we were glad we booked for 615...maybe we should have had a table away from the buffet area. Note for next time. Other than that Thank You.

The salad bar and dessert bar was amazing. The pasta buffet was also amazing. However, the chef added way too much salt in my pasta.

Service was great. The servers were cery attentive: cleared the plates with good timing and came around to refill our water glasses when it was low.

It was our last meal in Banff and definitely the best meal we had on the trip. Just delicious scallops to start and salmon as main and rich chocolate dessert.
We also had great breakfasts there-nice selection of foods

The services were very attentive and friendly. The strawberry margarita was nice. The offering of cucumber, lemon and lime slices in the water was a nice touch! The appetizer scallops were fantastic. The entree lamb loin serving was quite small and the outside of the meat was coated with charcoal which gave a bitter taste. I believe I would have enjoyed more if I had selected a different entree. The ambiance was cosy and quiet until a very loud group of four occupied a table nearby. Honestly I was quite surprised that they were not requested to tone down their voices and even more so when the manager were involved in the very loud conversation.

First time at the Rimrock/Primrose. Food was quite good. Two in my party had beef or lamb and both said it was outstanding. I had halibut, which was just a tad overcooked, but by no means dry. Presentation was lovely and the view of the mountains is gorgeous. Definitely will go back.

We asked to switch tables, they said no. And then another couple who got seated after us asked to switch tables, and they did. Turns out all we had to do was make it look like we would make a scene and then we would get moved to a better spot. We made our reservation a month in advance yet got the worst seating compared to people who just walked in the door.

Food was bland.

Food was good but not great. Service was nice but not excellent. We had a nice meal. My mother's halibut was a bit overcooked but the other dishes were good. The lamp portion was very small but tasty.
