Mesa Verde is an incredible place and the lodge is at the top of the mesa 16 miles from the main room and even more miles from any restaurant. Normally, at the National Parks, the food is edible and exorbitantly priced but nothing more than fries and burgers. The Metate Room shatters that mold. The view is exquisite from the... More

A very disappointing experience. We had just ordered our food and wanted to take a sip from our drinks when the soup was on the table. We ordered 3, we got 2. The 3rd one arrived when we reminded the waiter. While we were eating our soup (!) our entrees were put on the table. We pointed out that was... More

My party of three each ordered different entrees and shared. All of the meals were delicious! I had the chile and cheese-stuffed, tortilla breaded chicken breast with green chile mashed potatoes (to die for!) and sautéed veggies. The chile relleno with Southwest polenta, and the crimini mushroom chicken were also very good. Desserts were excellent, but the carrot cake was... More

The food was not the best, but was very creative and good for somewhere out where there was no other choice. The wait staff and the manager were all excellent. The views out the windows were excellent as were the 4 buck deer that we spotted while we were dining.

We ate here both nights we stayed at the Far View Lodge and we were very pleased. The first night we ate there after a long drive from Arizona and the second night after touring the cliff dwellings. Both nights the food was fantastic and the service was superb. My husband and I each ordered different entrees, so that we... More

I have eaten in top rated restaurants everywhere from Paris to Tokyo and this one stands out for overall excellence. The wait staff superb. The menu very well chosen. The taste of the food great. The only minor complaint might be the wine selections. Such a pleasant surprise in a National Park. Back tomorrow for the Duck that our waiter... More

Great food with local flair within the menu items and great service, we were happy about this choice, they even have a kids menu too but moderate pricing so not a cheap place for families.

While staying at Morehead Campground we decided to take a break from camp food and check out the Metate Room. Our experience with National Park restaurants until then had been mixed, but the Metate Room exceeded our wildest expectations. As advised by the excellent staff we decided the share the Mixed Grill, which turned out to include a mouthwatering selection... More

We were very happy about our food in the Metate Room! Our Far View hotel room was horrible (except the view!!!) but the dinner was delicious! Both the view & the ambience were great. We had two starters, two main courses & two desserts including beer & soft drinks for $91 - a fair price for a perfect evening!
