Stopped here for lunch with friends while visiting the Grand Canyon for the day. Beautiful old hotel building and dining room, very atmospheric. The canyon is right outside the picture windows as well. Good food and good service.

This is a white linen restaurant. It's on the higher end of prices. We spent probably 130 for a dinner for two. We were seated next to a Dad playing on his phone with his son a game. They were yelling "turn, turn turn" for most of our dining experience. The food was great but this really ruined our experience... More

Location, quality, excellent and friendly service. Best breakfast and dinner in the Park. But here we were also confronted with the social disparity in the present days US, having elderly people as servants. OK they are offered a chance for some income, but deserve retirement instead.

Geographically speaking, this is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful spots in the world. El Tovar, as a man-made structure, comes close to doing the spot justice. The dining room invokes tales of old. Service is friendly, though not very efficient. In our case, it took several reminders and 20 minutes to get bread. Food was ok, though my wife's... More

We ate in the dining room for dinner and breakfast. The food was good (not great) & had some interesting flairs-like a spicy hollandaise sauce on eggs benedict and the same sauce drizzled over (cubed, not shredded) prime rib hash. The house special cinnamon roll is as big as the plate & very good, we shared 1 and there was... More

Visited the National Park with my mother, and we had dinner in the El Tovar Restaurant. Menu offered a variety of options, including several game dishes. I gave the stuffed grouse a try, and it was quite good! Mom had a more standard chicken meal, which was also good. Staff was helpful in pairing a wine with the grouse, and... More

This restaurant is set in quite a grandiose dining hall in a historic lodge on the South Rim. The ambience is superb. Dinner usually needs a booking, but we were lucky to get a table without one, as there was a cancellation. The lodge and the restaurant were very well decorated as it was the day after Christmas. The menu... More

We had lunch here and loved the view over the canyon! The food was good, as well! I recommend visiting while there is still daylight, to take in the full benefit of the location. Inside and outside dining is offered.

Stopped here after a long hike down into the Canyon. Setting is cool, with interesting mural and history included in the menu. Food was only ok, especially given the price. I wouldn't go back. had the tamale and salmon, they were fine, but neither were flavorful. Friends pork chop was similarly bland.

I struggled with the number of stars for this place. It is a fancy place, very beautiful and the atmosphere is amazing. The menu selection was limited and starting at $20 per entree. The service was very good. What I was not very happy with was the taste of my dish, and for it's price i thought it was rather... More
