First of all , our waiter Gary was Excellent ! He was efficient friendly and knowledgeable. That being said, we spent $180 for a meal worth half that price. The meal was good but not great. My wife's $45 steak had to be sent back, being overcooked so I had to sit there and pick at my steak eating alone.... More

Only about 8 items on the menu and the servers screwed up orders at the two tables around us and at ours. Servers were dressed nicely (black and white) and walked around with one hand behind their backs at all times. They should have spent less time on etiquette lessons and more on how to serve tables! Family had to... More

Excellent food!! Beautiful dining room. We were with a tour group and still had excellent food. There was nothing to dislike! I would eat here again.

We came here for lunch after doing some morning hikes in the Valley. The ambience, service and food were delightful, although a little on the expensive side due to the location.

Great Views but poor food quality and preparation. We expected it to be overpriced but expected dinner with quality food and service. We ordered Fillet Minion and chicken. Fillet quality was bad and not cooked properly. We were expecting chicken breast but got small thigh with leg. They should hire a new chef. Meals Quality is bad, portions are small.... More

The inn is an oasis in Death Valley; however, dependent on the staff serving is the first thing one notices about the meals. I would suggest better training of the staff. All is expensive as we are a captive audience, dinners much better than breakfasts. I loved the filet mignon, just not the price. Can eat also down at the... More

We were staying at the Ranch, and came here for lunch. Lunch prices are pretty similar to the Ranch's restaurants prices ($14.95 hamburger), high due to remote location and "the only game in town." Dinner is very pricey ($45 steak). You can eat outside for dinner here, first come first serve, which in nice weather (e.g. Feb/March) would be a... More

We were disappointed with our dinner here. The salmon was good, but vegetables served with it unappealing and lukewarm. The Southwest Pasta was the favorite dish of our group.The salads were uneventful. The server was quite nice, but that couldn't make up for the boring food.

The white tablecloth dining room is attractive and the waitstaff welcoming. The food was satisfactory. My starter Caesar Salad tasted on the bland side, without the complex flavors of anchovy, egg, vinegar, etc. One of our party ordered the Salmon; she said it was on the dry side. Two of us had the chicken breast; it was quite moist, but... More

My husband and I have dined at Furnace Creek Inn several times in recent years and experienced utmost quality in food and service. We were disappointed this year to learn their previous executive chef of 8 years has moved on. Food quality definitely has taken a hit and we did not feel we got our money's worth for dinner. We...
