“The Very Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

This is the best restaurant we have ever had the pleasure of dinning in. The atmosphere is outstanding, with unbelievable food and service. This is where great memories are made.
When in Banff, go to Eden in the Rimrock Hotel you will be happy you did. Don't miss this one folks, trust me.

“Fine Dinning at its Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

The tasting menu with wine pairings at the Eden were outstanding. The portions were perfect for a seven course dinning experience and the sommelier selected some very fine wines that highlighted each course perfectly. The staff was very attentive and made our dinning experience very enjoyable.

“Very nice restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

This is probably on of the best options in the banff area, if nit THE best one. That said it's not a Michelin starred restaurant. The food is very good, the preparation very professional, and the staff extremely helpful.

“Unforgettable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

The entire experience at Eden, from reservation, confirmation, arrival and the meal experience itself was flawless. Having been fortunate to dine at several 5 diamond establishments, there is something about Eden that takes it one step beyond. From the exquisite menu selections, to the details of a professional wine pairing provided in person and in real-time, you can't help but feel like this a special experience. With unique Chef creations, the overall food quality is impeccable. Clean, crisp and professional service and a truly unique location definitely made this one of the most memorable experiences we have had.

“Always an amazing evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

Like the many other times we've dined at this restaurant, last night was equally impressive. I'm always waiting to find one flaw and the service and kitchen staff refuse to allow that to happen. The service staff are truly amazing, which is a tribute to the management of the hotel and to Chad, their main Maitre D'. From the time we entered the restaurant and were welcomed by their host, Gus, to being told stories of visiting the vineyards of Italy, the Okanagan and California by their sommelier, Robert to the incredible service by Julian and other staff members, one really realizes why this is a five diamond restaurant. My wife and I started with their Terrine, which was artfully presented. For the second course my wife had their Veloute (fancy name for a lobster dish) while I opted out for their smoked tuna carpaccio - both were excellent. For the main course my wife chose their Sablefish while I went for the recommended Wild Boar which was a
magnificent choice. Because of meeting friends, we had to pass on their dessert but the excellent bottle of Malbec we had made up for this. This is truly a restaurant one must go to if they are visiting Banff.
