We were visiting the USA after working in Scandinavia and had booked a month in New York from after Christmas so had to find somewhere to spend our time on Christmas Day. We had booked accommodation elsewhere as we thought Mohonk was too expensive. The facilities though look great but must admit that the amounts asked per night seem a... More

Visiting from Australia for Christmas we wanted to splurge and have a Christmas lunch to remember. We did! We had wonderful seats next to the window overlooking the Catskills. The food, although buffet style was delicious - the salmon was cooked to perfection. Service was friendly, chatty and efficient. Eating in the large dining room was an event, with a... More

Restaurant is located in main dining room. They have decorated it with an enormous Christmas tree. Staff is nice. The food was delicious. We each had a soup; tomato bisque and cream of cauliflower and both were amazing. The lamb was also a standout. Portions are large. They do a very nice job.

Whether you are staying overnight or there for a meal, there are few places anywhere that can rival the setting and charm of this hotel/restaurant and preserve. I have traveled all over the world and this is one of the loveliest spots I've been to . The food is good, not great, but that is not why you visit here.... More

My wife did all the work and made the reservations for the Mohonk House buffet for last Saturday. We had my sons and my brother in law along for good measure, so we were very much ready to eat after our hour long ride up to the Mountain House.The food was terrific and the mountain atmosphere was accentuated by the...

On a sunny fall day, you just can't beat the beautiful scenery, crisp cool air, warming up by a fireplace, walking some of the many trails, resting on a porch rocking chairs....heavenly!!

When we stayed, the dinner buffet period had just ended and it had switched to more formal dining requiring men to wear jackets to dinner and a 3-course plated meal being served. We dressed up for dinner on our first night and for some strange reason involved us all standing in line down a corridor for the dining hall doors... More

Been there three times - twice for lunch, once for brunch. Never disappointed. It's a real splurge, but includes access to the grounds, which are gorgeous. See my review under 'attractions'. The main dining room is spacious, with front & back walls of windows overlooking the Hudson River valley or the MMH property. Dining is buffet style, with lots of... More
