Exceptional food, service, and view. Always delightful to come and eat here at the inn. Good choices on the menu as well!

The room was beautiful, the staff attentive and pleasant, the prices fitting a grand restaurant. The food was mediocre. Understanding you have few options for eating in Death Valley and transportation costs for getting supplies, it just did not live up to expectations or the cost.

We did not stay at Furnace Creek, but stopped in the dining room for breakfast. Everything was exceptional -- the view, the service, the menu, and the food.

They have you over the barrel as there really isn’t anywhere else to eat so they can charge whatever they want. The menu is very limited to a few sandwiches and other side items. The burger was good. The French dip didn’t have flavor. Save yourself time and money and pack a lunch.

Ok food at outrageous prices. Beautiful location but pricey for it. We really liked the complimentary bread basket with the beautifully shaped butter.

Very poor selection for vegetarians. The one entre offered was a "vegetable medley" demonstrating lack of ability or care -- simple a cup of grains on a plate. For a top tier restaurant, it was very disappointing. We wanted to eat there every night of our trip, but instead went to the Ranch restaurants. We've stayed in many national park... More

We did not expect high end gourmet food in a national park. We stayed at the Furnace Creek Ranch, but ate dinner here twice to escape the families at the Ranch restaurants. We had filet mignon, sable, halibut, and trout over the two meals. We also had salads and the Blue Corn taco for starters. All excellent, but the Fine... More

The server was cheerful and competent but the food was not good. The taste was very average at its best, it was only warm-not hot as if it had sat too long in the kitchen. The biscuits were overlooked. The portions were small for the price. The menu options are underwhelming. The place has only the veneer of fine dining... More

Our family had a delicious dinner at the Furnace Creek Inn restaurant on December 19, 2014. We ordered a bottle of the Furnace Creek Merlot which we all enjoyed. A bread basket is brought to your table with delicious fruit bread and slices of french bread. There are four types of seasoned butter which are all quite tasty. For dinner,... More

We ate here two nights, because we were staying at the hotel. Basics -- soup, salad -- were fine, but uninspired. The main courses were close to disgusting. Salmon was dry and lifeless. Trout was foul. The next night we tried a "blue tortilla crepe" and a "cannelloni". Weird and impossible to finish. I'm usually a person who can shrug... More
