“Average food, slow service, nice setting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Took a LONG time to get breakfast, and it was not crowded. Food was average but not terrible. The Navajo breakfast taco was fine if spiced up with Tabasco. Can not recommend the posole. Be proactive with the service--waiter forgot a couple things, must ask for water. And of course you are paying the price for the view, not the food. Since this is one of the few choices in the area, go ahead and pay the price and enjoy the setting.

“Very average food, good service, incredible views.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I was a bit surprised that the food was very average considering the caliber of the hotel and area, but it was convenient to have it right on property, the service was very friendly and the views from every table were ample compensation.

“So so food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Unimpressive, somewhat expensive, but no real complaint. I didn't visit Monument Valley for the food.

“Tasty, but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

I was here for a photography tour and needed lunch. I got the green chili stew with a side order of fry bread. Both were very good. The fry bread was huge and quite tasty. Service was quick and the server was friendly and attentive. Meal + tip was $22, which is a bit high for lunch and for what it was, but that's the reality of this area and all in all, I was very pleased.

“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

This really your only option when visiting Monument Valley. That said, the overall experience was very, very disappointing from the service to the quality of the food. Look at it like a bump in the road as the overall Monument Valley experience is fabulous!!!
