Inspired our iconic Palliser Hotel history and the authenticity of the 1920s, the Rimrock Dining room invites you to try Fairmont’s genuine luxury cuisine with the taste and feel reminiscent of the ‘golden-era of travel.’ The Rimrock is open daily for breakfast and offers dinner service Thursday through Sunday evenings in a historic room revived with prohibition-themed décor. Our brand new menu created by Executive Chef, Eraj Jayawickreme, is sure to please too. Indulge in our Feta-encrusted Lamb Sirloin paired with confit shallots and warm quinoa salad, the delicious Chardonnay-brined Half Chicken or the classic and succulent Alberta Beef Tenderloin accompanied by Horseradish Pomme Puree and roasted mushrooms. The finale, house-made desserts with a modern twist will leave you wanting more, most notably, the delectable Melting Chocolate Sphere filled with lemon curd, black pepper sponge and raspberries.

Amazing food, beautiful fireplace but service was horrible and sat for long periods with no one to take our order. We eventually, had to pay our bill up front as the server never came back. :(

We had a lovely table near the fireplace for breakfast. The restaurant has a wonderful ambience with jazz music playing at a low level, making it easy to cary on a conversation. Our server was very attentive and our food arrived promptly. While the food was tasty, the prices seem a little high, but not really surprising for this level of hotel. Overall, a great way to start the day.

The food was very good but surprisingly there was no fruit salad except for cut pieces to be dipped in chocolate at the dessert station. My dining companion had the cod which was bland. Compared to the Carriage House Sunday Brunch, the Rimrock had less variety for $12.00 more. What you are paying extra for is the ambience which is incomparable to in any other venue in the city. For a special occasion, have brunch at the Rimrock while enjoying the outstanding decor.

Lovely evening. Great service. We had a lot of fun, with exactly the right level of formality.
Great food, locally sourced. Very nicely presented.
The ambience is classic historic Alberta. A Calgary treasure.

Still one of the best places for brunch around the city. But it is dependent on the chef for the day. We were lucky I think.

Outstanding menu and very tasty food for NYE in Calgary. Atmosphere is pleasant, décor is reminiscent of the early 1900 with fireplace, service if overall very good.

We went there as a family party (7 people) for New Year’s Eve dinner. We were at the 6:00pm seating, and we had been advised there was a 9:00pm seating so we wouldn’t be able to linger all evening. That being said, the pace of service for our table was fairly slow (in a good way), so it became obvious that our table wouldn’t be used for the 9:00pm seating. Fine by us! The food was very good (it was a set 5 course menu), and they accommodated our party’s food restrictions/allergies very well (there was a bit of confusion at first with one person allergic to all nuts being served a dish with nuts sprinkled on top, but that was quickly corrected). A very good time was had by all. The children’s menu was quite impressive and was the perfect combination of “fancy” and “not too fancy” for our 12 year old.
I would definitely recommend!
