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.

From the moment of arriving to the regrettable time to leave a wonderful time. The atmosphere relaxed and very helpful and friendly. The menu was 4 course dinner with a selection of options for each course. The food was delicious with marvellous combinations of flavours and textures. YUM

WOW!! This restaurant is totally outstanding in every way and so was our server Shellie! It was a misty chilly night and they had a fire in the fireplace in the room in which we dined, perfect for that weather. The room was so warm and inviting and perfectly appointed. Shellie was so helpful and great sense of humor, she really added to the enjoyment of our meal. My husband and I ordered the same items: oysters Rasputin, seared scallops with ancho chili sauce, Rim Rock Seafood Trio-grilled prawns, rare ahi tuna and sable fish and their toffee pudding for dessert. Each dish was wonderful, perfectly prepared and excellent flavors. I rarely eat dessert but did order it on advice from Shellie --it was grand! This restaurant is perfect in every way, service, ambiance and food! We wished we were staying another night in Whistler just to have the opportunity to dine there again. When in Whistler DO NOT miss Rim Rock!!! I can't wait to go back!

We had a three night get away weekend and were advised by every local that we ran into that Rim Rock was the best restaurant in Whistler. We managed to get a 5:30 reservation on a Saturday night and were absolutely amazed by the experience.

The 4 course special was incredible. The seafood appetizers and fish mains were delectable and cooked to perfection. On a busy night in Whistler you would expect to be pushed to complete your meal and get out. Not so here. Our waiter John made us feel at home and relaxed. His timing for every part of our meal was impecable. He anticipated every moment to refresh our wine and bring on the next course.

We left the restaurant saying this was the best meal and restaurant experience we have ever had! The dinner at Rim Rock actually made our weekend. On the drive back to our hotel, we talked about how we would come back to Whistler for a weekend with a group of friends just to have dinner at Rim Rock ! Try it, you wont believe it!

A short drive from Whistler Village, but well worth the trip. Unique flavor combinations. Great seafood and fresh vegetables. Nice ambiance and friendly staff.

I just visited for their 4 course special and it was AMAZING. They have an amazing seafood selection. The halibut was cooked to perfection, so creamy if that's even possible for fish. Great flavours and very accomodation to dietary needs. Service was friendly and energetic. WILL return
