The menu is interesting at best with some strange food combinations that just don't taste good. My burger tasted only like burnt charcoal. The fries were the only good thing we had. The chicken was bland and really needed at least some salt and pepper. Sadly, while the views are great, the food left us unsatisfied.

Went to Ranger briefing at the Far View Lodge and hoped to grab dinner at the lodge restaurant. 45 minute wait without reservations for overpriced food. Popped upstairs to the bar, had great views, OK but reasonably priced food.

I won't say it was bad, but it was less than okay. When you're suppose to get a hot sandwich and it's not, it's disappointing. And as far as the view goes....the windows were filthy.

We ate here after touring the Mesa Verde cliff houses. The food was okay, but nothing spectacular. Just your average run of the mill café.

I had the Navajo Taco, it was superb. Kids had hot dogs, wife had pizza. Pros: Good food. Service was fast, very friendly and enthusiastic. Great view of the park from the nice, clean seating area. Plenty of food selections of all types. Salad bar looked good too. Con: High prices, but not entirely unreasonable for a cafe in the... More

We stopped here during our exploration of Mesa Verde. It was a cafeteria style outlet, and the food matched our expectations - average. The dining area is light and roomy, with great views over the Mesa. the best thing is the convenience. If you have travelled here without provisions, the cafe is a godsend.

We had dinner at night with thunderstorm views. It was spectacular. We had drinks and an array of appetizers, all were very good and were indicative of the region.

We ate breakfast here during our stay and did not enjoy the food and felt the prices were very high for what you received. It was cafeteria style food but had sat out for a very long time. There are very limited options in the park so we were hoping this would be a good dining spot. We had planned... More

As seriously disappointed as I was with my recent stay at nearby Far View Lodge, I did enjoy my three or four visits to this place. Honestly, I wasn't expecting much when I read about it, but it's modern and clean, with ample seating, an awesome coffee bar and a nice gift shop. Drawbacks: The food is by Aramark, which... More

You don't have a lot of options inside the park for dining. This is a cafeteria style restaurant that has some good options, some not great. Some options were sitting in the warmers too long. Some were made to order, which were good. I was very happy with breakfast, they make great to-order omelette, and there were fruit cups that... More
