This was quite possibly the best meal and dining experience I have had in many many years, including Michelin star restaurants. If this is not the best restaurant in Canada, I would be surprised. The views are amazing, the setting intimate. The food was exquisite, with a great variety of distinct and tasty flavors, the presentation as you would expect was great. The service was exceptional- Benoit and Robert. Even the small touches, like the amuse bouche, the cognac butter with the varying flavored breads, and to top it all off, a little gift on departure. I would have been happy to pay double the price for this experience. If you are in Banff, GO here for a very memorable dining experience!!
Dinner was awesome! Our waiter was awesome! Would definitely recommend to anyone.
Food was excellent and somm Robert pairings were beautiful.
We did the tasting menu with the Eden wine pairing. The menu started off strong with excellent dishes and wine pairings. However, the back half of the menu was overly sweet. Cloying. Paired with sweet wines. My husband and I literally sucked on the lemon wedges in our water to cut the sweet. We could barely drink any of one of the wines that was served...on its own or with another pairing it would have been ok, but at that point we just couldn’t take it. No comments or questions from the staff as to why we barely touched that wine or why we couldn’t finish half of the last 2 dishes. Overall left disappointed.
Excellent experience. Service was impeccable! Food was very good. I would definitely go back!
Beautiful setting, friendly attentive staff, interesting menu choices. A great evening for a special occasion.
The staff first of all were amazing and attentive, never had such a great atmosphere and service, food was also up to these high standards being absolutely amazing, if you are staying at this hotel you need to dine here!
Wine sommelier was the worst we have ever met. Eden pairing was full of wine which did not go with food. Rushed, impatient and kind of showed an attitude. We have been going there for last ten years at least 1-2 times a year. After this experience we need to evaluate our visits.
I have to say that my wife and I were blown away with the arrival the outstanding service and the most delicious food we’ve had in a long while and we’ve been all over the world. Maldives Thailand Malaysia South Africa Europe at the top places we could dine at so to say this is a great thing for Rimrock!!!!! Totally impressed from the introduction to the last bite !!!!! Keep up the great work !!!!
An exceptional dinning experience!!
Very nice dining experience. Every detail was exceptional. Would recommend and will come again.
Ambiance was classy, dark yet eloquent - complete with beautiful single orchid decorated on each well-set tables.
My wife and I had the 5-course meal, ordering 2 appetizers, a main dish, a 3-cheese plate, and a dessert for each of us.
The appetizers were excellent - great technical skills were at display with fine mariage of ingredients and flavors. Seared trout with pine nut and corn, and sunchoke soup with mushrooms were nice start to dinner.
My main dish of grass-fed beef had overabundant seasoning of coarse crushed pepper, which subdued the bourguignon flavor of sauce, and unfortunately, could not experience much umami savoriness of aged beef. The beef bourguignon garnish bits were unpleasantly dry.
Desserts did not fare too well; it may have been the biggest disappointment of the night. Supposedly coffee creme brûlée with banana, passion fruit and pâte à choux was, I hate say, an amateur rendition of the classic. The presentation lacked any refinement; the listed flavors were all muddled without any distinguishing texture or senses of acidity, salty, nor bitterness on the palate. My wife's hazelnut entremets also had met similar fate.
Service by all front staff was impeccable and courteous - friendly yet professional. My hats off to them during this trying times.
We splurged over $300 in wine and champagne to uplift the evening in otherwise disappointing finish to our culinary experience at Eden.
Food was good, but definitely not great. High prices given the quality. Service was amazing as was the view!
Amazing view, great food, lovely experience
Absolutely fantastic meal and wine pairings. Impeccable service and timing between courses.
Friendly, impeccable service, and amazing food. Always a treat to eat at Eden!
PS, exemplary Covid-19 precautions.
This was quite possibly the best meal experience of my life. We went to Eden to celebrate our engagement and from the moment we stepped into the restaurant we felt like celebrities. Right away the host and hostess helped us out with free parking for the night, and even offered to set us up with a ride at the end of the meal. We then met our 2 amazing waiters, who kept us laughing and entertained all night, i really can't say enough about these two, they where so knowledgeable and made there restraunt feel like a family. We also had the best sommelier, that paired all our food with the perfect glass of wine, and had beautiful stories about each glass. There where so many highlights that it is very hard to mention a fraction of them. The end of the meal was capped off with them offering a opportunity to meet the chef, which was a honor! He is truly a artist in the kitchen and every last bit of food that went on the plate was stunning and of coarse very tasty. If you are looking for somewhere special to celebrate, Eden may be at the very top of that list worldwide!!!
Simply world class and awesome.
Great services, gorgeous view and good food. Will be back again.
Everything was perfect. Amazing views, exceptional service and delicious food.
Excellent as usual! Thank you.
Always amazing food and service. Michelin ** in my mind.
It is often about making the right choices.I had scallops to start,pheasant main course and then hazelnut desert.All were excellent .
My wife was equally happy with her 3 choices.overall it was the nicest meal we have had for a long time.
Que dire de plus que ce fut une expérience incroyable à tous les niveaux. Le décor est sublime avec une table près de la déjetée avec vue sur les montagnes, la nourriture était exceptionnelle du début à la fin avec le menu dégustation avec un coup de cœur pour la pâte renversée. Le service est digne des plus grands restaurants mondiaux. Ils étaient plus de 5 à notre service avec un rôle précis et ceci sans être intimidant, très amical et professionnel . Un grand merci
Very attentive. We had a very nice time.
The meal started out fine but ended poorly. We upgraded to the Eden Wine pairing, which was unfortunately disappointing. We started with the tuna and scallops, both were well cooked and nicely paired with their respective wines, but nothing spectacular. For entrees, we had the beef tenderloin and lamb. These were fantastic and perfectly paired. Then, things went south when the sommelier paired a port with strong cheeses. Sweet wine with dry cheeses? Not good. Finally, the lemon desert was paired with an overly sweet ice wine. All would have been forgiven had they just discounted our bill when we said we weren’t happy with the wine pairing. An unfortunate end to what would have otherwise been a nice meal.
Julian, Abraham and the crew were fantastic! Super knowledgeable about the whole menu, and the wine and were an absolute pleasure to chat with. Would definitely recommend!
Eden lived up to it's reputation! it was a wonderful experience from start to finish. The food, service and presentation was excellent. I have already recommended this to a friend, for their anniversary .
We felt like royalty
Service and food is always excellent
Eden was an unforgettable dining experience. The artwork of each plate served, the gorgeous mountain views from our table, and the friendly/attentive serving staff - this was truly an unparalleled experience. Highly recommended.
Eden is easily the best dining experience in Canada. Benoit, our sommelier was phenomenal as usual, as were all of the staff. Views from our table of the evening mountains and sky are unbeatable. The menu is always changing but the attention to detail remains. The selections were absolutely outstanding and the pairings were perfect. We are always made to feel like royalty when we are here. Thank you for making our anniversary dinner so special.
Spectacular. What I loved most was all the little surprises in between courses.
We were on our ski vacation and went to Eden based on the on line reviews. It was incredible food and service! They did not rush us and we spent over two hours enjoying the atmosphere and fine dining experience. We were the next to last couple to leave that evening and felt we had truly had a great foodie experience. They even provided a car and driver to take us back to our hotel in Banff. That's the kind of service you can expect when you dine there.
From the moment we walked in to the moment we walked out everything was just spectacular. Raul greeted us at the entrance and was friendly, smiley, cheerful and informative. He walked us from our car to reception. Benoit was someone we could tell loves what he does and answered all our questions. The food was fenomenal and delicious to the last bite. We look forward to returning to enjoy at another occasion.
After having this place on our radar for a number of years to get in an try, my wife and I finally got to see what it was all about at Eden.
We opted for the Grand Degustation with the Eden wine pairings. It was a special occasion so what better time to try out their top end tasting and wine.
The service here was great. We came in with a bit of a bad taste after having to hire a cab to take up from the Springs to the Rimrock. I think this is the only place the Springs shuttle doesn’t take you in all of Banff. Could be due to it being their closest competitor. Funny thing was the Rimrock had no problem sending us back in their hotels shuttle. Made us think maybe next time we will try staying at the Rimrock all together.
The food was what you would expect from a top end chefs team with creative looking and tasting dished from start to finish. The wine pairing was also very good with some unique bottles mainly from France which we loved. For the elevated ‘Eden Pairing’ we would have liked to see some older vintage, cellar wines. The oldest bottle we got to taste was a 2011. For the additional $143/pp over the Classic pairing, I would have liked to see multiple 10+ year vintages and other top end tastings we’ve experienced have Eden beat in this regard.
Overall the ambiance was also very good. I liked the vintage rail car theme of the restaurant. The background music was clever and unique. The views of the valley are great and would be more impressive in the longer days of summer. In the winter months you don’t see much. Either way, ask for a window table.
The bill came out to a special occasion $1,650 (including tip) for the two of us which included the tasting with wine pairings, a pair of pre-tasting glasses of champagne, a couple glasses of our favorite wine from the tasting (afterwards), and a couple of browns from the bar cart. We indulged. A couple could try Eden and have a very nice dinner for about half that. We'll be back.
Our experience started the moment we walked into the Rimrock hotel. We were escorted to the restaurant. We were seated and our culinary experience started. The food was fantastic, we never felt rushed. We had many servers taking care of us. Everything was amazing. Just when I thought our experience was over as we left the restaurant the concierge escorted us to the front door and the Rimrock hotel used their courtesy shuttle to drive us back to the Banff springs hotels. That is exceptional service from a hotel we weren’t even staying at.
Outstanding! I had the veggie price fixe and it was delicious. My husband had a three course carnivore meal that was equally delicious. Fabulous service, wonderful food, nice selection of wine. If you’re considering this restaurant, consider no longer. Book now!
Amazing service, incredible service and lots and lots of great courses.
We could not have picked a better place to celebrate my husbands birthday. The food, wines and service was exceptional. We had such a wonderful time and look forward to next year!
Thank you to the Eden team for making this a memorable evening !
