Sunset Terrace - Omni Grove Park Inn Ratings and Reviews
I've been at Grove Park Inn a number of times for events, but this is the first time I've had dinner at Sunset Terrace. As a vegan I was very happy to see they now offered a vegan entree (a lentil based dish). But it was very disappointing, little taste and odd texture. Clearly the chef is not a fan of vegan dishes. The salad was excellent, as was the service, but expected more from the main course. The more casual Edison cafe in Grove Park is a much better choice for vegans, have eaten there several times. Of course I can't judge how good the non-vegan entrees are, but of course I oppose them offering animals at all.
Beautiful ambiance and great service! My husband and I were elated that there was one vegan entre on the menu, the lentil shepherd's pie. However, we were not very impressed with the dish; it was just "okay." It consisted of a bowl full of lentils, topped with butternut squash. Flavor was decent, but it was too much of same thing. We just expected more from the Grove Park Inn and for the price. The other people in our party ordered non-vegan items and said they enjoyed them. Wine was delicious.
Personalized service was great. Always addressed by name, each day we dined at the Terrace. I want to take the time to thank the staff at the Terrace, particularly AMANDA (Hostess I believe), who checked us in each time. We had a wonderful time celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary.
Outdoor dining was great. The sun however for people eating at the edge of the upper level was very uncomfortable. Seating should be moved back to tables more under the cover during the hours of 5:00pm to 7:00pm during the summer to shield more from direct sunlight. Wait staff should ask patrons if sun is too much and offer a more shielded seating.
Our waitress, Diane, was very attentive and accommodating. Service flowed smoothly and the food was hot and cooked perfectly. The flourless chocolate layer cake was amazing! Only negatives were the prices(really high) and the blinding sun at 6:30pm...some simple opaque roller screens should be there for this intense time of the dinner hour. That way you can still enjoy the mountain views without having to be seated way back under roof. Overall, great historical place with pretty views and nice service!
The view was not as good as I had hoped for as the sunset itself was blocked a little by their own building, but still a beautiful setting. The food and service were excellent. They really made us feel special, as they knew we were there for a birthday dinner. Small negative - paying $15 for the valet after spending $250 on dinner.
The Sunset Terrace had the most gorgeous views of the mountains surrounding the city of Asheville! My girl friends and I were able to enjoy a quiet brunch with a stunning backdrop! It was truly an experience. The food was phenomenal. I had the Shrimp & Grits and was not disappointed! The portion size, flavor, and presentation was well worth the price. I even had some left ot take home and enjoy later. I highly recommend this dining experience!
Higher end restaurant at the Omni Grove Park. After a light rain, enjoyed very good late night dining. The patio is very dark and there is not enough lighting to see the menus, nor is pen lighting offered by the wait staff. Both of us had to use cell phones.
And the wait staff could definitely have been more attentive with only a very few patrons dining.
For this level of restaurant I'd expect much better service. 2nd time here. 1st time I had to coax specials and recommendations and descriptions out of the server. This time my wive was cut off b4 she finished her order. Both times we were rarely checked on and had empty glasses.
My experience there was very good! I took my boyfriend there for his birthday. We both ordered steak mine came out a little over cooked. The servers immediately took my plate and cooked me a new steak within five minutes. They were very apologetic and even gave me the sides I ordered again so they would come out hot. The service really was overall five stars. I can't wait for my next visit to Asheville so I can go back ther again!
The Terrace overlooks the valley at Grove Park Inn so you are actually eating outside, but covered. Our table was right by the overlook, although I'm not sure that diners seated further back would have as wonderful a view. Food and service were excellent. Service for drinks in the lounge before being seated was rather slow. Prices are not cheap and the dining area feels rather crowded.
This review is a combination of meals we had at the Sunset Terrace. I would highly recommend it for lunch. The smashed burger and lentil burger were great. The view is wonderful. The wait staff is very attentive. Our dinner meals were, however, not as good. Not as high a quality as we had hoped for our Anniversary dinner. Still enjoyed the view!
I was treating my niece to lunch to celebrate her birthday. From the minute we were greeted at the Sunset Terrace our experience was awesome! Stan, our waiter, was very gracious and definitely made us feel like he was there solely to make our experience as wonderful as possible. Our cocktail was delicious and the food was superb!! I also noticed that great attention was given to the timing of our service. We never felt rushed or like we were waiting on anything. Needless to say, I can't wait to return!
We went here for a date night on our honeymoon. We were given a spectacular table with a view and complementary champagne at the end of our meal. The food was fantastic and we loved sitting by the fireplace in the lobby and walking around by the waterfalls. Such a great experience overall!
Probably we would have given the Sunset Terrace 5s across the board, had it not been for the brusqueness of our wait-person. She did not do anything that was significantly wrong, but she seemed to be in a hurry. We don't expect that type of service in a restaurant such as the Sunset Terrace.
The place is all in the view. Although the food and service was good the meat entrees were exceedingly overpriced. The shrimp cocktail( said to be the longest standing item on menu) was exceptionally good, although the presentation could be improved. Might be a better value for lunch.
Sunset is a Wonderful Restaurant at Omni Grove Park , Always greeted with a smile at Hostess station , and your Wait Staff , Great Menu I recommend the Lobster Cobb , But there Burger are also Very Good , great for solo visit to a group , Diane was our waitress and everything was Perfect , I do recommend reservation , and I would do them a little in advance , if you wait till the day of it , You may not be able to get a seat ,
Great Steaks and Seafood also ,
My husband and I have heard so much about the Grove Park Inn, so we decided to try it for an anniversary lunch. We marked that it was our anniversary when we reserved with open table and everyone greeted us with a sincere Happy Anniversary. The view was spectacular! The service was amazing as were the starters, main entree and dessert. They even surprised us with an additional beautiful "Happy Anniversary" dessert. From beginning to end, it was an unforgettable experience.
