    This place became one of our favorites during our BC trip. Cozy meets local, the staff is great, we always felt welcome and they did the best for us. The menu is harmonized and balanced also for children. Thanks again we are looking forward to see you again once we come back.

    Another outstanding meal at Rim Rock! Every member of their team is on point and consistently over delivers! And did I mention their spring special - by far the best value in the valley. Try one of the sommelier's highlighted bottle specials. Great gems that are amazing! Can't say enough good things about our evening....can't wait to be back!

    Our favourite restaurant in all of Whistler. It was our anniversary dinner out and it did not disappoint. It was the $69 Three Course Spring Special......WOW what a great meal. Started with sharing the Mussels which was good size for 2. Then had the Ceviche and the other the Scallops (3), both nicely prepared and tasty. The main course was 1) Rim Rock Trio with Prawns, Salmon and Tuna 2) Venison Medallions, the seafood dish had 3 large prawns, piece of Salmon and 2 pieces of seared Tuna...very tasty. The Venison came med/rare the melted in your mouth and was accompanied with spatzel, squash puree, carrot and broccolini. We finished by sharing the famous Sticky Toffee pudding and a single Cappachino. With a 9oz glass of red wine from Spain and an Apple Cider the bill was $200 (+ tip). Also the service was quick and staff friendly and attentive but not bothersome during the meal. Highly recommend as always.

    I was concerned to go due to the sale and thinking maybe things would have changed. What a pleasant surprise. We had a delicious dinner and excellent service. Halibut special was melt in your mouth. Love the classic old style atmosphere and happy it didn’t change. Please put the potato pancake w smoked salmon on the menu. Lovely evening. Was just as good as before or maybe even better!

    Excellent food and wine. Some bc sparkling wines by the glass would be a nice addition. Service was quick and efficient but perhaps a little over attentive. Mushroom salad particularly recommended as was the Salmon with Lobster mash. Desserts good but salted caramel tart might have been better with ice cream rather than cream. Excellent value.

    Quite simply my favourite Restaurant in the World. Fresh, delicious food. Exceptional service. Located in the best part of Whistler - it is an absolute privilege to go to Rimrock. Tip - leave room for dessert if you can as the sticky toffee pudding is to die for.

    Amazing experience 🍾 started with the seafood antipasto. This was a great way to sample their seafood options. It is a chef’s selection but ours included shrimp cocktail, ceviche, smoked fish salad, tuna tartar and octopus salad. We forgot to take a photo to share. Presentation was beautiful and each item was placed on a separate small dish on a board to keep things from blending. Enjoyed each one. Only negative, it was very filling so I couldn’t finish my main entree. We ordered the halibut special and Rimrock seafood trio. Both entrees were delicious and the vegetable sides were perfect. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Whistler.

    Wow! The Rim Rock exceeds expectations once again! You cannot go wrong with this restaurant! Sam made amazing cocktails behind the bar; Erica provided outstanding service; Etienne prepared a superb encrusted pate for the feature menu; Steve (owner) came by a couple times to ensure our experience was top notch. And, to start things off, Steve had chilled champagne waiting for us upon arrival to celebrate our anniversary. The Rim Rock continues to be Whistler's premier dining experience!! Kudos to the kitchen and hosting staff as well. Great updates and continued excellence with the new ownership... nice work guys!!!

    I’ve been coming to the Rimrock for the last 20 years it’s my favourite restaurant in Whistler and I’m hoping tonight was an exception. Super long service took ages at each stage we arrived at 6pm and at 7:15pm hadn’t received any food. I also mentioned in advance it was my mom’s birthday and nothing happened. The food when it came was delicious I’m just disappointed as it’s a special treat where normally the food and service is rock solid.

    We tried Rimrock while in Whistler. It was recommended as a very good place that locals go. When we got there we were seated immediately at the bar where we reserved. The service was great, the food was even better. The best restaurant we went to on this vacation. There were two of us and after the fish sampler (very good) we split the venison steak and the lamb. The venison was probably one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. Melt in your mouth with some great flavors. The lamb was great also. We tried three deserts which were unbelievably delicious. I am a lover of clean fresh food cooked with love and not overly saucy or spicey. Rimrock delivered just that. My only issue after snowboarding all day was the portions were not as large as I would have liked.
