The view of Monument Valley is amazing. We had to pay $26 for a family of 5 to get into the parking lot. Food was low quality, but hey - it's in the middle of nowhere. Next time I'll bring our own food in a cooler. 25% gratuity was automatically added which I find offensive.

While staying at The View, there is little choice for restaurants other than the one at the hotel. Our dinner was very poor, my salad with chicken was extremely plain (who gives you celery sticks and baby carrots with a salad) and the chicken (obviously frozen chicken strips) were tough and dry since I chose to have it warmed I guess. My husbands taco was pretty flavorless. Breakfast buffet was okay. All in all we were very dissatisfied with the food quality although the service was acceptable.

We ate at the View after a long day driving Monument Valley. The restaurant was clean, well staffed and did have a great view.
There was a buffet soup-salad bar and entrees were fairly priced.
This was handy--we are in the middle of the desert with few options- so it was refreshing to have an easy meal at the end of a long day.
There is outdoor seating, depending on the time of year.
They also have a huge gift shop attached. Nice to check out.

food is ok but nothing special. when it gets busy the staff are not able to cope which leads to confusion. that said we ate there twice and it was ok. the problem is that there is no competition so if you are staying at the view you dont have much choice. the view from the panoramic windows is beyond compare and more than makes up for the amusing service and passable food.
