“Unbelievable and incomparable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This place sets a new standard in fine dining. Everything about this place - the service, the ambiance, and of course the food - will make every other dining experience you have had seem dull by comparison. These people are incredibly passionate about what they do and it shows.

“Superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Eden is a restaurant that you should experience at least once in your life. My wife and I choose to experience it once or twice a year! Combine an amazing staff with a fantastic chef and a wine selection that is to die for and you get Eden. Sitting on the edge of a mountain in Banff National Park is really the finishing touch. We always enjoy the chef's menu with the wine pairing. A great way to experience new tastes.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We chose this restaurant for a special celebration dinner. Some elements of the dinner were very good but there were many misses. We both chose the four course menu with wine pairing. Service was uneven which is not expected of a restaurant of this calibre. The first course "A Potato Salad" was excellent, well-conceived and executed. However the other first course "Crab and Carrot" was boring and fishy. Both entrees, bison tenderloin and duck, were delicious. The cheese course was fine but ordinary. The "Chocolate Landscape" dessert was not memorable.
The greatest disappointment of the evening was the wine pairing. The Eden restaurant advertises itself as a five-diamond restaurant yet served everyday wine in their wine pairing. We like Sandhill Merlot but with a bison tenderloin - really? This is a wine more appropriate for a casual week-night dinner. If the price point for the wine pairing is so low that they cannot serve wine appropriately matched to the food they should either raise the price or not do the pairing at all.

“Top Notch Fine Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is my first visit to Eden Restaurant. I'm a huge fan this is fine dining on a word class level. The greater was friendly and had a sense of humour as did the staff. No one is stuck up or pretentious. The drink server wasn't top notch she needs some lessons on wine. We loved the views it all went off without a hitch. This isn't a fancy steak restaurant it's fine dining European style. I think the wine pairing could be a good idea but I think you will miss out on all the wonderful food flavours. The Potato Salad was a home run. Thanks to Eden's staff it was memorable. We will be back.
