No Sunday Brunch
July 26, 2014

I booked the Palliser for my dad's bday and wanted to do the Sunday brunch. It was plastered all over the website that is what they do on Sundays from 11:30am to 1:30pm. When we arrived at 11:30am we were told they weren't doing brunch and the breakfast buffet would be over at noon. So we were rushed to eat and all there was left at that point was scraps. I was very disappointed for a $30... more

The resturant was very quite during the lunch hour, we were the only ones, l expected it to be a lot busier during the stampede week. The business lunch was great, a lot of food for the price, my friend had the salmon, which she said was very good. l had the steak, it was okay, l have had better.

Very Good

The waiter did get my order wrong (I never said anything as I was too hungry). The food made up for it.

Special evening
July 03, 2014

This was our choice for 45th wedding anniversary dinner. It didn't disappoint. Excellent regional menu and an amazing "alternative" menu: gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, diabetic, raw...we found such an alternative menu available at all of four Fairmont hotel restaurants we visited in Canada. When we declined a complimentary dessert to honor our special occasion, the server brought us a box of... more

Overpriced buffet
June 22, 2014

I work at a bakery that bakes from scratch every single day so I may have a higher standard for desserts. However, when you're paying $30 per person for desserts, anyone would expect something from scratch and unique, I would think. It was a disappointment to say the least when I got to the buffet. Most of the desserts were left overs and not made in house (usually squares such as brownies and... more

Calgary's Best Brunch
May 24, 2014

The Palliser has always been my favorite hotel in the city...no other Sunday Brunch in town comes close to being as good. It may be a touch on the expensive side but these days you get what you pay for....at the Palliser, it's always amazing food and first class service...as a family, over the years, we have celebrated dozens of special occasions at the Palliser
I highly recommend the Palliser... more

World of Charm
May 17, 2014

This was a special occasion made even more so buy the staff. This is a hidden gem. The menu is small and not up to foodie standards but this isn't a modern restaurant. The staff is professional with knowledge and charm. Love this place.

Atmosphere Good but Not So for Food
May 17, 2014

Five of us and a baby had brunch at the Rimrock which many had said it was the best buffet brunch in town. The spread looked impressive as it took up a big space outside the restaurant. But the food quality was not good and selection was limited. The scallops were small and overcooked, the prime rib was mushy and does not have the fresh meat texture. They also ran out of seafood sauce. It was... more

Great place, but food is just ok
May 11, 2014

For the price of the buffet ($49/pr), I would expect that there be more food variety. The dessert is good but not great. Comparing it to other not so pricey buffet places, I can get more bang for my buck. Nice ambiance but I don't think I would come back again.

Good but not great
May 09, 2014

The service was wonderful. Our waiter even gave us free dessert! The food was good. I had the half Cornish hen with barley risotto, and I would say it was good not great the risotto was dry. My husband had the steak, which was really good. But for the price I would skip it

I had a good time. Although, I ate too much of my meal too fully enjoy the death by chocolate afterwards.

A bit disappointing but okay
April 25, 2014

We had bought a coupon with Travelzoo and were expecting a really great evening. However, I found it kind of disappointing - the server was subpar (which I was so surprised about since I am a real Fairmont fan!!) and they placed us at a table right outside the kitchen door. It's such a great room with lots of spots - not sure why they did that. The food was good - nice and hot, cooked well. But... more

Classy, great food, great service
April 10, 2014

From the moment you walk into this high class dining room, you are treated like a royal. We went with a TravelZoo deal, and our waiter Simon was fantastic. We both had the clam chowder to start - which was savoured down to the last spoon full. Then the main course of the salmon and beef tenderloin. DELICIOUS!!! Creme Brulee and coffee for dessert rounded off the evening with a full 5 star rating!

Mother's Day 2014
March 29, 2014

We have been to the FM several times for dinner brunch etc. It has never been approaching a poor or even just average review. This Mother's Day Brunch was terrible (other than the dessert). The service and food was so substandard that I cannot make myself rebook againIt was $500 for the lot of us and thankfully the tip option was not included.The once spectacular Brunch has regressed unfortunately

The Rimrock Room at the Palliser Hotel serves quite possibly the best brunch in Calgary, featuring unusual and flavorful cuisine such as roasted curry potatoes, bay scallop ceviche and chipotle rice. There is also a good selection of traditional brunch and dinner fare, as well as desserts prepared by pastry chef Victoria Dodd. The hotel is one of the oldest in the city, and maintains an elegant... more
