We went in a group of six and were really well looked after by our waiter. Of course the food was wonderful, as you'd expect for a restaurant so highly reviewed. We all ordered different dishes and every one came out looking better than the next. We ended up doing a full three course dinner and came out pleasantly full.

No visit to Whistler is complete without dinner at Rim Rock Cafe. This is fine dining at its best. Oysters Rockefeller were excellent and the spinach salad with smoked duck breast was the best spinach salad I've had anywhere. Two of us had an artic char with scallops special that was truly extraordinary. My wife, who usually doesn't care for... More

We booked dinner in this restaurant well in advance mainly because of it's #1 ranking on Tripadvisor. Perhaps because our expectations were so high, we have to say that it does deserve 5 stars and provides an excellent dining experience, but we didn't find it "ours concurs". Everything was indeed very good, including food, wine list and the staff, but... More

I was in Whistler for my sons bachelor party and wanted to have one nice dinner with him and his friends while we were there. After researching several places and websites, I finally settled on the Rim Rock Cafe. SO happy i did, it was a fantastic evening of dining, wine, and dessert! The service was impeccable and made every... More

I have lived in the Sea to Sky Corridor for over 20 years and think The Rim Rock is the best restaurant in Whistler. Amazing service and delicious food!!!

A friend recommended that we go to dinner here. I am a bit of a foodie and so can be quite snotty about food. This restaurant was just fine. Food was good, nothing special. The service was fine as well. I was not wowed by any means. A solid experience, but nothing that special.

It had been a tough day on the slopes, so we “googled” restaurants near Creekside. The Rim Rock Café turned up and had good reviews on TripAdvisor, so we called. Turns out they are booked weeks in advance. (And this was a Saturday night!) They did say, however, that if we arrived early enough, we might get a seat at... More

Description
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.
