                                              Food was good, but not exceptional. I’d define myself as a foodie, so I might be critic. My wife had the bison short rib and I had the entrecôte. The bison was a bit dry and the entrecôte was OK, I’ve had better steak before. We went on a Thursday night around 8PM and there was not a lot of other people, so it was quite quiet. The view is exceptional we were looking at the mountain that was just in front of us. The highlight was the pumpkin cheese cake, it’s original and not as heavy as a normal cheese cake.

                                              The staff at the Primrose Dining Room are delightful. Jeremy you were a delight and so fun, thank you for being our server. I don’t remember the host but she has such a delightful welcoming smile, she is a gem. Do I even need to mention the food, delicious! Pasta night is the best idea to bring the Bow Valley locals and community together.

                                              No social distancing at pasta bar and forced to walk close by people at middle salad bar while exiting PB. Flow of people at PB could perhaps improve if one way implemented and spread lengthways out more. Chefs getting chosen ingredients from customers in rapid succession means not much time for customer to choose-contributing to close contact between customers standing at PB. Perhaps middle SB should be one sided access and the desert bar located more in the direction of fireplace. Also spaced foot marks on floor indicating where customers to stand while at PB may help with the social distancing.

                                              We ate here twice during our stay, once for Christmas Eve dinner and once for breakfast. Both meals were buffets. The food was very mediocre and disappointing. Perhaps the food quality is better when there isn’t a buffet, but I won’t be returning.

                                              Pasta buffet at the Primrose- a Birthday tradition for our son. Complimentary Prosecco was a nice touch as was the valet service! My husband was in a wheelchair so we were relieved to have been shown the elevator to access the restaurant rather than stairs. Service was exceptional! Food was great as always. We felt desserts weren’t up to their usual standards. Nice to be back !

                                              Value for money. Great experience. Food variety was out of my expectation. A very great dinner to pre-celebrate Christmas.

                                              We were so disappointed with our experience at Primrose. Have been here before and this was not what we were expecting. Over 2 hours to receive adult entrees and over an hour to receive kids chicken fingers and fries. The positive thing about the experience was the manager on duty was more than fair with removing the adult entrees from the bill and gave 35% off the remainder. We would have rather had a more pleasant dining experience than the discount.

                                              Primrose is a lovely place for a special dinner. In our case - a birthday. The room is large but doesn’t feel cavernous. The view of Mt Rundle from the huge windows is stunning. The staff who attended us were very professional, friendly, kind, attentive but not in your face. The menu is well balanced. We started with scallops and made-in-house sour dough bread. Delicious! My entrecôte was perfectly cooked and seasoned. My partner’s duck was the best we’ve ever tasted. All in all, if you are looking for a first class restaurant in Banff I highly recommend Rimrock’s Primrose Room
