Overpriced

Atmosphere is great, but the food is very very simple and therefore overpriced really. Plenty of choice for wines.

Service was just terrible in the restaurant which is a real shame since the setting is spectacular. Power went out while we were there. Our entrees came out looking like they had been cooked on a small grill in the back parking lot of a football tailgate. My steak was burned on one side and basically raw on the other... More

Our party of four was well treated. We chose differing items off the menue and all were good as were the beverages and the service. We believe this upscale dining room has it all over the Old Faithful Inn meal service. The view of the lake was superb and a highlight of the day. This is a top-drawer facility.

This is unfortunate because I know that this review will have little impact on those visiting the park. The food options are limited inside the park so inevitably, you will end up at this supposedly fine dine restaurant. A few problems at the restaurant. I ordered a 40$ lamb steak at dinner. I received the steak without vegetables. When I... More

It's not that the Lake Yellowstone Hotel Dining Room serves extraordinary fare, but it's that the restaurant is one of only a few decent/average restaurants in the over 3,000 square miles of Yellowstone National Park. In general, there is a nice variety and quality of food, the service is wonderful, and the surroundings are historic, but make your reservations well... More

An upscale restaurant with a varied menu, but difficulty in accommodating food allergy. I guess most of their food is batch prepared. Very scenic dinning room with great lounge a step away.

We arrived about 10 min before our reservation. A small quartet was playing in the lounge area. There wasn't much room to sit, but we found a place. After about 20 min the hostess found us (they don't call out your name) and we were seated, but with no view of the lake. Service is marginal here. We waited for... More

This is one of the best restaurants I have ever had the fortune to eat at. The reason has a little to do with the food but more with the surroundings. You do not eat with your mouth but with your eyes. Good service as well.

Despite reservations, and checking in an hour early, we were forgotten, pointed out the problem, and then seated 45 minutes late. The appetizer read three cheeses on the menu; it arrived with one. The waiter only returned when it was time to serve the main course. I told him about the appetizer; he returned twenty minutes later with a few... More

This restaurant wants to be first class but is nowhere near that. I ordered the salmon cheesecake as an appetizer, it was very bland. My husband & I both order the bison tenderloin for our entree. Our server came by the table 4 times to tell us it would be out soon, 1 hour later it arrived. It was cold... More
