located just across inside main entrance of the rimrock hotel (and just across from the banff hot springs, near the gondola ride, too) the larkspur is a great spot for a late night drink and munchies. we only had little treats and drinks - but they were perfect and the view is amazing! nice super high ceilings, roaring fires and...

My wife and I visited the Larkspur as we were staying at the Rim rock. I recommend coming up to the Larkspur even if you aren't staying at the hotel itself. The prices can be quite reasonable, and this is a really classy place with a fantastic view and an ambiance that can be romantic, or business, but is definitely... More

Sitting next to a cozy fire we watched the sunset as we ate supper. We loved the mushroom risotto. The banana split was the best dessert.

The Rimrock burger was excellent! Pricing was fair and service was quick and attentive. Easy to bring a baby here as well but only place to change baby was in the Primrose washroom.

Relaxing, warm atmosphere. The cheese plate is wonderful. Try the specialty cocktails. Also, the salmon was incredible.

Stayed at the Rimrock so didn't have far to go! Excellent setting with views out to the snow capped mountains. Really talented singer / pianist when we were there added to the experience. Well worth a visit if you want something a bit classier than the bars in town. Good food in superb surroundings. A little expensive but who cares... More

Comfortable and cosy. Good selection of lighter foods, fresh salads, plus burgers and sandwiches for those that need them. Found the piano player too loud and interfered with our conversation even though we were some distance away.

We enjoyed cocktails in the Larkspur twice during our visit. The view from the lounge is beautiful. we also enjoyed the oversized fireplace. It made a large room feel cosy. The food that we ordered the first night was a sampler platter. Everything was deep fried and not exactly what we expected. Parts of the room are very tired (torn... More
