4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Pros: The meal was excellent, the service very attentive, and the decor and furniture perfect for the setting. Cons: There were some loud fellows sitting near us, and then across the restaurant were several families with noisy kids. Our table with a view was rather sad.... basically looking out at a ski lift and tall grass.

We stayed 2 nights at the Sleeping Lady and experienced some of the most fantastic meals that we have ever had. Our first dinner in particular was phenomenal. The server, and I wish I could remember her name, was so good, with a great Malbec wine recommendation. The setting is very much like the Awhahnee in Yosemite--a beautiful, wood, great... More

The food was delicious with a great variety for dinner and breakfast. Tables, though, were not prepared for guests. The hostess always seemed to have to set up tables, especially for those who chose to eat outside on the terrace. The hostess, table servers, and food servers were very pleasant. A tip was asked at the end of our stay.... More

While the menu is on the pricier end you'll never be disappointed by the food. Top quality ingredients, staff and venue. If you're a holiday traveler I've heard their Thanksgiving & Christmas feasts are amazing.

Kingfisher has big reputation for quality food but on this Mother's day it was mediocre at best and not a good value. Th eggs were cold, flavors in just about all dishes were somewhat lacking. Tea water was warm and not hot. Fresh fruit was truly fresh. Service was decent.

I really appreciate you taking the time to let us know of your disappointing experience at our Mother's Day Brunch. As you can imagine, we wouldn't have the reputation for quality food very long if that was the typical experience.

Kingfisher aligns with and amplifies the 'values' that make Sleeping Lady Resort such a special place for us: healthy food, sourced as much as possible from local artisans, prepared and served in an unfussy, informal but striking dining facility. There are always three choices for the buffet dinner: a meat; poultry or fish; and a vegetarian dish. Dozens of other... More

It was what you'd expect from a hotel or convention buffet. Our server touted the buffet as some kind local, organic, gourmet spread. What we got was a bad rendition of decent ingredients. The root vegetables & rice were undercooked while the leaf vegetables and fish were overcooked. Their veggie entree, billed as Thai style curried tofu & vegetables, was... More

We decided on doing something entirely different this year for the holidays and the wife's birthday. Had read some articles and reviews of this place and thought it would be worth the little extra for our Christmas day meal. The setting of the entire complex is spectacular to see especially in the snow. Well maintained roads and pathways leading to... More

Service was good. The setting is lovely, however, the night we dined, two weddings were taking place on the property. The view out the main dining room area was obstructed by the massive white tent set up for the wedding. The salad bar was wonderful, full of fresh, flavorful options. Loved the heirloom tomatoes, mozzarella and basil salad - amazing!... More

I so regret hearing your experience was disappointing. I can certainly appreciate how the tent took away from the ambiance and setting and as a general rule we don't allow them. I apologize for this. Your comments are helpful and give us great feedback when considering this option again in the future. Again, thank you so much for your comments... More
