Heard good things about this place so we made it a point to stop. The scenery is beautiful, right on the Colorado river. The food is average. I do have a complaint about the automatic gratuity added to every bill. Tom was our server and one of the most unfriendly servers we have ever met. No smile or welcome just a what can I get you. Service should be rewarded and with automatic gratuity staff don't have to try.Will not return or recommend to anyone.

“Terrible Service”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

It's unfortunate that the service was so poor because I really wanted to like this place. It's one of the finer places to dine in the Moab area. A peaceful patio that over looks the Colorado River. An upscale resort with upscale dinner prices. But the service was horrible. it took almost 15 minutes for someone to even acknowledge us after we were seated. Slow to bring drink and to take our order. The food was over priced for what you get. Go here for an appetizer, take some pictures and find another place for dinner.

“Breathtakingly Expensive!”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

We ate dinner here three nights in May, and have no complaints about the Quality of the food. However, the prices are beyond belief. The wine list has $15 bottles of wine for $50, and the meal quickly becomes a $100+ per person adventure. Hey, guys, this ain't Manhattan. The hotel is also quite nice but very expensive.

“Lunch at Sorrel River Ranch”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

We stopped in for lunch the other day on our way to Red Cliffs Lodge. We have never been in this part of the US before, and are just blown away by the beautiful scenery. Our server was darling, but the lunch was just OK. I may have made a mistake by ordering the ceviche, which was not on the lunch menu. (I saw it on the display menu at the restaurant entrance--obviously the dinner menu, I realize now.) The ceviche was pretty bad--far too tart from the acid, and not fresh tasting. It had 2 kinds of fish, but none of the advertised shellfish (shrimp or scallops). I also ordered the gaspacho, which was interesting (it tasted more of berries than tomatoes, but that was OK). And i can't remember which item -- the ceviche or the gaspacho -- was supposed to come with tortillas, but no tortillas ever showed up.
All of this would have been minor, except for the shock of the 18% automatic gratuity. My husband and I were both amazed. This is NOT appropriate -- for 2 people, for a simple lunch!

“Go to Red Cliffs lodge instead”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Let's see: we were the only people in the restaurant when we arrived (7.15pm on a Wednesday); the $36 lamb chops came with a minute amount of fried onions and nothing else; and the total for two adults and two children (with two glasses of wine and no dessert) was $200. Never again. The Red Cliffs lodge, just 3-4 miles away, shows how high-end dining by the Colorado should be done.
