The young man handling the reservations really turned us off from the beginning. We arrived on time for our reservation to find the place completely empty. He seated us adjacent to a wait station. (My chair was literally underneath a tray jack loaded with pitchers of water making it impossible to be seated.) we requested a different table and he... More

We always enjoy the Ram - good food, a relaxed atmosphere, and the music of Larry Harshbarger, with associated stories from his many years Thanks for taking excellent care of us Cindy!

The Ram Lounge is such a beautiful setting to gather after dinner! We came at a time when the bar was just closing, but the fantastic bartender still allowed us to order drinks. I love the couches and comfy atmosphere. They also play some fantastic music which takes you back to Sun Valley in the 40's and 50's.

Went with my two teenage sons and my very hip nephew and girlfriend. We squeezed into a booth and had an amazing meal. We had a great waitress from France. The language barrier made it fun. The food was uniformly five stars. Every meal at the table tasted delicious. They did lose track of us for a while so we... More

The Ram Restaurant in the Sun Valley Inn is the resort's finest, maintaining a feel of old Sun Valley in the wonderful dining room. The menu items are superb, but we did find the menu a bit limiting - especially compared to Gretchen's at the Lodge. The Ram Bar is a fun and informal place for an apres ski gathering... More

Went to the Ram with friends on Friday night. The place was empty. I was surprised but then again, it is the most expensive restaurant in Sun Valley/Ketchum. The server although very nice did not have a clue about the food or wine. The food was average at best and I am being kind. The presentation was like a diner... More

This beautiful lounge in the Sun Valley Inn has comfortable sofas and chairs plus a few tables. It has a full bar, a long wine list and hot drinks in the winter. Although there is a pianist at the Duchin Bar in the Sun Valley Lodge, here the pianist is in the adjoining Ram Restaurant and we were not allowed... More

I ate at the Ram earlier in the year and it was exquisite, fresh and interesting food. This trip, we couldn't get a reservation before 8:30, so opted to eat in the Ram Lounge, since after all, they share a kitchen, it must be the same quality. It was packed and they only had 2 servers working the entire space.... More

This restaurant is part of the Sun Valley Inn: a very nice setting. The food is good but the menu is surprisingly limited: one would expect, for example, to see Idaho trout on the menu but it doesn't exist. Portions seem small but they are ample. The food itself is tasty. But to spend >$55 on a salad, a small... More
