Our family group worked our way through the menu and were impressed at every step. the seafood was magnificent while the duck and beef were also excellent. Fantastic complementary wine choices and a great dessert menu. Definitely the highlight of our dining experiences in Whistler.

We had dinner here in November 2015 - from start to finish, a fabulous experience! Food, service, and ambiance were excellent. We will absolutely be back the next time we're in Whistler.

Very reasonably priced wine menu. The food was very good; however we found the food at Barefoot Bistro the better.

It is no wonder why the Rimrock is #1 on TripAdvisor. The menu and wine list are perfect. The room has a lovely atmosphere and the service is friendly and professional. On top of all this, the food is sensational. We all had the lobster...More

Rim rock usually books up months before the holiday season. Unless you have already secured a reservation i would not count on getting in. It is their busiest time of year.
Does anyone with food allergies (nuts, peanut, sesame, fish) have experience of eating at this restaurant? We'd love to try it.

In its 23rd year, the Rimrock Café has delighted diners with its innovative, fresh cuisine and emphasis on the finest fish and game, artfully prepared with inventiveness and flair. The restaurant is consistently recognized as a local’s favorite for atmosphere, service and a sublime eating experience. Behind the large glass window of our lit cellar, all manner of wines from the glamorous and recognizable to the intriguing and new seem to hum seductively. Two fireplaces cast an ambient glow over the chatter and energy of our rustic dining room. In summer, enjoy your meal on a sunny patio. The seafood antipasto for two is the perfect start to your meal. Stunning presentation meets succulent, vibrant flavor among the six exquisite tasters. Try our Venison tenderloin, served with a porcini cream and homemade spatzle. For the seafood lover, our main course Trio is a harmony of seared Ahi, nut crusted Sablefish and grilled prawns. Complete your meal with Whistler's favorite desert.
