My wife and I had dinner at the lodge restaurant. It is at the foot of 2 ski lifts at Sugar Bowl Ski resort. Getting there is charming. You park at the lot on old Highway 40 and take a 4 personal Gondola high in the air about 8 minutes to the lodge. Meal was excellent, service with Amanda was... More

While they suggest you dress well for dinner,which my husband and I respected, we noticed that no one else did and we probably could have not gone through all the hassel at the end of a long day. It would be nice if they dimmed the lighting a little more during dinner, to create a nicer atmosphere that matches the... More

This is a real restaurant, on the mountain, overlooking the bottom of the ski area - with white table cloths, real flatware and dishes, professional-level service, etc. The food is excellent. They serve a discerning clientele. Menu choices vary but are what you might expect at a fine restaurant. May be one of the best restaurants east of san francisco.... More

We had dinner on Christmas Eve. What a treat the food was excellent. Great wine list. It's a nice family place. Called and made reservations a few days before Christmas Eve and they had a spot. The view is of the Disney lift. For a ski resort it is excellent!

Great service, been here 3 times in two years. It's expensive, yes, but it is a ski resort. You could pay these prices back home for the same quality food and service, but you wouldn't have the view of the Disney Lift and the apres ski grooming, right? Even with a fairly full dining room the servers and kitchen kept... More

now I go to Alpine, the runs are shorts. I still love to ski here but I needed a change. It very good for people that like to ski off piste a little too steep for me and if the snow is not fresh that is no good for me. That is way the runs are short. It is a... More
