Graham's at Squaw Valley Ratings and Reviews
We had a great dinner at Graham's. The ambiance is always lovely. Particularly good was the asparagus wrapped in a type of puff pastry. Also the pasta with shrimp. Quite delicious. It is a lovely restaurant with a cozy, warm ambiance especially when it is snowing outside.
We were a party of 6, our family get together. The seating was roomy and comfortable, we were not rushed, we could talk privately with no one listening. Food was good, actually quite good. Lots of service w wine, food and water glasses filled all the time. Owner asked us periodically if we were being taken care of. Quite a good experience. Would certainly go back and recommend.
We loved every aspect of this restaurant from the welcome as we arrived and were seated by the proprietor himself, to our friendly server, to the excellent food and wine.
Thank you for knowing what excellent customer service is and keeping it alive in Squaw.
We can't wait to come back many times!
Family of 4 adults had dinner while staying in Squaw Valley. The place was cozy, comfortable and welcoming, the waiter not always entirely attentive and a bit chatty but certainly very friendly, the food just OK. As restaurants in the valley go, it is a nice dinner for a not outrageous price, but if you are looking for either a gourmet or budget meal, maybe not.
Grahams is a local legend and my wife and I have been coming here to eat for over 30 years. Graham is almost always in the restaurant and greets the folks as they enter and/or leave. The food is spectacular, but you simply must try the seafood chowder. Nothing on the menu will disappoint. The waiters are all very competent and the entire restaurant makes you feel like you are at "
Graham's is the best restaurant we have been to in Squaw Valley. Away from the crowds and hustle and bustle. Great service and authentic European menu that is delicious.
We tried the calamari with garlic and wonderfully seasoned green salad to start with a glass of Napa Valley Chardonnay. The Petrale Sole and Chicken Roulade were really tasty with a well made ratatouille side on each.
Honestly, we have not had a better meal or better treatment anywhere in Squaw.
We can't wait to go back for another meal.
Graham's has fabulous food, but even more important is the atmosphere and service! Food, atmosphere and service are all wonderful. Yummy steak cooked to perfection and delicious ravioli. We had a lovely round table right by the fireplace - so cozy. One could not ask for a more welcoming respite from the snow! The owner takes time to greet each guest and remembers your name when you leave. Highly recommend Graham's!
Arrived during a snowstorm. Waiters were not able to make it to work. We were warned may be a little slow. Did not seem to be a problem Food was really tasty. Shares salad with my husband and they split onto two plates. The little things make a big difference. Will go back next time in Squaw Village.
Gosh we want to give this place high ranks but the food was just terrible. We are business owners and know what a bad social media rating means. But we can not represent this as something good. The king crab was fishy. The duck was chewy and over cooked. The sole was mushy. Positives. The scallops were cooked to perfection. But that is about it for good. Gawwd we wanted to like this place. Peter and Alejandro were wonderful and the wine lost was great and totally affordable. Peter is a go to for wine recommendations.
My family and I went to Graham's the week of Christmas 2016 to celebrate the holidays. We fell in love with the place as well as Graham, himself.
The "foodie" menu was fantatstic. Luckily my family loves to eat and explore new foods and tastes. Everyone's meal was delicious. We ordered appetizers, soups, salads and entrees. None of our choices were a disappointment. Everything was top notch.
The service is also gold star. We were treated like royalty by our server as well as the rest of the staff. I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends and family.
Our first time but definitely not our last time. From the time we walked in until we left we felt at home. The bar was fun, the food was delicious and the service was excellent! We can't wait to return. An extra plus was we got to met Mr. Graham who went out of his way to get an address of a place we were taking about!
I was very disappointed with Graham's,I went because of good reviews but boy was that misleading. The food was not great, very basic food that anyone could make. I had duck breast which came with mashed potatoes/mostly butter and tasted like it was a few days old and veggies that were fine. Everything was cold when it arrived. I did not enjoy it and it was very expensive.
People were friendly but that does not make up for bad food, I felt ripped off.
Graham's was a delight. This restaurant could be in San Francisco, except for the physical building. Interestingly it is located in one of the first homes built in Olympic Valley, Completely modernized and converted for restaurant/bar. The table was well set with white table cloth and pressed black napkins. The food was excellent. My wife had the stuffed chicken breast and I had a very generously sized duck breast. Both were excellent. Our wait staff Kelli and Alfonso were very efficient and pleasant. Alfonso spent his idle moments standing in a spot where he could keep an eye on his tables, a nice touch often not seen today. Wine list was very good and of course full bar was available. We are putting this one on our "must go" list for North Tahoe north shore.
