The food is phenomenal! Hint - order off the menu rather than the buffet at dinner. The desserts are great, and there is plenty of choice for vegetarians, including a separate menu at dinner. The food is as local as they can make it - even with gardens on the grounds. Enjoy!

Experience one of the best places in the Hudson Valley. This is our third time back. Would come again.

This mountaintop restaurant located in the Mohonk Mountainhouse resort has a fantastic location with beautiful surroundings, but the food quality is quite disappointing. First, note that the buffet menu and the a la carte menu are completely different. The buffet is low quality, comparable to an average diner (sweet tangy sauces on most vegetables, overcooked pasta, overcooked fish..). Heavy and... More

When the occasion demands something extraordinaire, this is the place! Starting with entering the grounds at the gatehouse, you know to expect something special. The scenery on the miles long woodland drive into the lodge can be breathtaking. The in house ambiance - relaxed yet refined in a turn of the century sort of way. The dining room itself is... More

It is not so much the restaurant that is the draw here though the food is expertly prepared and quite delicious. Visited and stayed here some 40 years ago and it is as if nothing had changed... the atmosphere of old world genteel furnishings, staff and service and outstanding views if you decide all you want to do in warmer...

A great way to visit the Mohonk Mountain House, worth every effort for the scenery and the architecture, is to reserve for the indoor buffet lunch. The lunch exceeded my expectations. We were offered a soup to start--a wonderful and thinner version of split pea with bits of ham. The buffet was not the usual layout of tired dishes, but... More

It's hard to imagine that this food is prepared in large quantities because usually that means that it loses something. This is not the case at Mohonk. In fact, it's an effort to make sure not to over-indulge since the buffets are limitless and the choices bountiful. Several in my family are vegetarian and dishes are clearly labeled for those...

In the last 3 days I had eaten at the Culinary Institute twice and Mohonk today and although the views, ambiance and service are wonderful, the food at Mohonk should be better especially when one considers the price. The meat was a bit tough and the ice tea had an off taste, perhaps because of the water. This does not... More

Had breakfast and went hiking here for the day. Spectacular views from Skytop it's a must see. Great service! Breakfast was good not the best I ever had but good. Lots of carriage roads, horseback riding and trails connect to the 7000 acres in the surrounding preserve. This place is a resort like hotel with a day spa, swimming, boating,... More

We visited this so called resort to celebrate our anniversary with the "fabolous" brunch. By the way you prepay when you make the reservation! The food is served buffett style. The ambience is like a college cafeteria. Very noisy, loud, disruptive. The food quality very sub par. The desserts awful Two couples celebrating our respective anniversaries paid almost $400 and...
