We took dinner at Primrose and we're served by PJ. Excellent service and tasty food. We enjoy the very classy atmosphere.

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!

Our meal was extraordinary, the four pieces of smoked salmon, 2 cold and two of warm with maple was the best we had ever had! So tender and flavorful. Definitely a must!

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.

The Easter dinner menu was lovely - just the right amount of food, not too rich and elegantly served. The waiting service was excellent. And they allowed us to space out the three courses, which we appreciated.

Overall great meal. Only downside was the price point for the quality of food. My tenderloin was way overdone as well as almost a well done vs the medium rare I ordered.

Perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. Benoit was our server and he could not have made it any better. Did the chefs tasting and allowed us to make changes Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a weekend getaway in Banff and want an upscale dinner with excellent service

If everyone wasn't so well dressed we would have licked our plates clean. Our food was so delicious, right from the starter to the dessert and we had zero regrets about chosing the Primrose as our dinner choice. Our server, Will was AMAZING as well which really added to the overall experience. We hope to be back!

The food just isn't good here. The scallop appetizer had dime size scallops, the steak came out over cooked. The linguine dish was so so. It was priced where the food should be exceptional and it just wasn't.

Disappointing to say the least.
Screaming children, literally running around the restaurant.
Some people dressed really well and others in sweats and ball caps.
It would be a similar dining experience to what you would find at Smittys or a Rickis.
It was busy for the Valentines/family day long weekend.
Beautiful view of the skating rink.
Soup was lukewarm in a very hot bowl (under a warmer or microwaved?).
$49 for a lamb shank-stewed or maybe braised in the microwave as was not warm either. Would not recommend.
Linguine dish was lukewarm and not very flavourful.
Desserts were fantastic.
Overall definitely not the quality expected from the Rimrock name or for the price paid.
Upon booking several weeks ago it was mentioned that we were celebrating a 40th birthday. Some acknowledgment in any way would have been nice.
We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine and champagne but for $300 the food was disappointing and we will go else where next time.

Excellent meal, service and ambience.
The Open table software needs reworking to make changes to a reservation. I was unable to change the reservation numbers (downwards) without rebooking a table. Needed to call in to make the change.

We really enjoyed our family night out at the Primrose (yes! there is a kids menu).

Great food and outstanding service! Highly recommended. I had the scallops and the tenderloin - both great.

You can also use the hotel’s parkade if just going for dinner - you’ll get a voucher at the restaurant.

Overall the experience was good. My meal of pork belly and cheek was ok but not the best. Service was good and friendly.
We were sat by a window close to the entrance. The music choice of jazz from Stingray was not to my liking but what made it worse, we could hear the piano singer upstairs at the same volume level.
I would do again if staying at the hotel..
