Great food and attentive service. This busy restaurant iis consistently one of Whistler's best. And as a bonus, you can actually carry on a conversation without leaning halfway across the table. This is one of our go-to restaurants when we spend a weekend at Whistler.

The majority of the food was delicious I have to admit, and the wine was fabulous! The waiter was great as well, however we wish he had advised is that the 'special' on the menu, Elk, was not game! Being from England, this kind of meat would be wild and gamey and we expected the same in somewhere known for... More

We dine here every year for our family dinner because the Rimrock is my favourite and it doesn't disappoint. Everyone (4) was very satisfied with their choices which included: lobster bisque, calamari, salads, elk, caribou, venison and trio of fish. We finished with the sorbet which was so simple but divine and didn't ruin the dinner. We left full and... More

On a Monday night this place was packed! The servers were knowledgeable, cheerful and very accommodating to my partners dietary concerns. The lobster bisque was extremely tasty. The rack of lamb superb. Had to finish with sticky toffee pudding which is as good as the ones I had in Cartmel Village Shop in UK which claim to be the home... More

The fresh oysters were fantastic. They also had a special of Caribou for an appetizer that was amazing! Definitely recommend getting it if they have it. The ambiance was nice for a special date for me and my husband, and the server was so friendly and helpful. A must if you are in Whistler.

One of Whistler's most consistently great restaurants. Fantastic service and great food. Located in Whistler Creek so great to get away from the village. Reservations a must as this place gets ver busy.

One of my favourite restaurants in Whistler! I most recently had the venison and it was incredible! The atmosphere is great and the desserts are also amazing. It is pricey though, but well worth 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.
