Sunset Terrace - Omni Grove Park Inn Ratings and Reviews
First time stay at Grove Park Inn. Would definitely return. Great scenic sunset dinner. Very diligent wait staff. Friendly and mad us feel welcome. Both had the filet. It was good but not over the top. Little higher priced but expected this for the location. Still would recommend. At least 8.5 out of 10.
We had never been here before our anniversary dinner. Read a lot of reviews but nothing could compare to the actual amazing, indescribable, grand entrance and amazing views! The food was incredible and the service was over the top! Way to go Omni! We will definitely be back!
The food was way overpriced, you paid at least $25 more per plate just because of the view. I'm sure the view is breathtaking on sunny, non-foggy days; not our experience. Then they sat not 1 but 2 kids under age 3 next to us, making our time there even better.
We enjoyed our meal at the Sunset Terrace, Omni Grove Park Inn. We spent 4 days in Ashville for our 50th wedding anniversary celebration and the Sunset Grill was our dinner destination for one of those nights. Our meal was delicious, our server was outstanding, and the view from this outdoor grill beautiful!! Our server graciously took our picture with the mountains and sunset as the backdrop. While we definately would return to dine at the Sunset Terrace again, be forewarned that if you choose to use valet parking it will cost $15.00; they do not validate your parking sticker. Also, the hostess that night (Sept. 10) was "snooty" and almost didn't seat us because we were 15 minutes early!!!
Our meals consisted of corn chowder, Caesar salad, filet with bearnaise sauce, scallops, asparagus, whipped potatoes and chocolate cake. The flavors were outstanding and were easily in my top 5 best ever tasted for each of the individual dishes.
Natalie, our server, was very personable and has a great sense of humor as well as being efficient. The timing of the various courses was just right for us-we weren't rushed or left waiting for the next dish to arrive.
The atmosphere is unrivaled in my opinion. First, I love the Arts and Crafts style, so this a visual delight for me to see the architecture and furniture. Then, there is the view of the mountains west of Asheville and finally, the outstanding sunset when the weather cooperates.
I honestly can not pick my favorite part of the experience. I do wish that I had known that it is necessary to reserve a table at the edge of the terrace. I wanted to enjoy the view, but didn't want to appear to be staring at the diners seated there, next time.
Yes, it is expensive, but it is fine dining at its best.
Excellent, attentive service. Great natural view compromised by overbuilding -a little like watching the Grand Canyon on TV. Good food but not memorable. Phenomenally overpriced. They're selling the view, but $150 for two non-a la carte including tip and parking ($15).
I was very disappointed with our experience at the Sunset Terrace restaurant. Our greeter couldn't have been less interested, my Caesar salad (which had to be sent back since there was fish in my lettuce leaves—DISGUSTING!), was so bland (the chicken), and the dressing so nasty, that I only ate a few bites. Our utensils were dirty and our table was situated in such a way that we couldn't enjoy the view without looking directly at the diners next to us. The overall decor of the outside restaurant was lacklustre and ordinary for the extravagant prices. I would NOT go back or recommend this restaurant for lunch. Left feeling very ripped off, disappointed and hungry.
Its a bit of a drive to get there. Parking is a problem. Valet is $15. Self park good luck. Seated promptly. Waitress very nice and efficient. Had the lobster wrap which was very good, but my wife has had equally as good at a lesser price. I had the trout which was very good also. We both had the organic margarita, again very good. Strawberry rhubarb pie for desert was outstanding. Of course the view was great.
Excellent Steaks & Seafood, one in our party had the Lamb... everything was fantastic. Terrace is know for the view and it did not disappoint.
KC strip steak, medium rare, just right! Had the IPA Mac & Cheese, very good, not overpowering.
Great drink selection
Special shout out to the Hotel grounds & Lobby. Always great to take a walk after a big dinner, the Hotel is more impressive than I realized, historical site.
Our server, Kennth (?)was excellent, the food was delicious, our birthday celebration lasted 2 hours and 15 minutes, felt totally unrushed through the meal, view is always breathtaking and restful, the end came with a nice creatively done birthday dessert plate for our friend.
We were taking a visitor to NC to see our mountains. What better place to show off the scenery than the Sunset Terrace? The service was good, we were not rushed, and despite the rain we were comfortable; eventually the rain stopped and we had a lovely, although a bit cloudy view. Three of our party had the Lobster Cobb salad which was dinner sized and only the men could eat all of it. I had the quinoa and corn cakes, very light and a new dish for me. I wish there was just a little more of the salad dressing to pour over them. (I know I should have asked.) We enjoyed a nice chardonnay. We all decided to skip dessert but the options did appear tempting. We did inquire about the corkage, it is $20.00.
When dining with visitors or for a special occasion, I think this is a lovely place to come as you do have the sense when you enter the Grove Park Inn, that this is a special time.
Everybody told us we had to eat here... The location is stunning, sadly that's not reflected in the food. Our waiter was amazing, very helpful and attentive. The tartare was some of the best I've ever had, but that's where the good food ended. Cold sides and tasteless meats. One of our meals was comped, which was nice of them, but I'd rather have had good food.
The view is fabulous! Can't be beat. Prices are high so one should expect perfection. I asked for a medium center for my salmon, which said pink center. I reiterated this to my server. It came totally dry. A replacement was offered very quickly and it was better but still not as pink and moist as I prefer.
My husband also had an issue with his steak. He asked for rare to medium rare and his wasn't even medium rare. He didn't even mention his after I had just dealt with my issue. Sometimes you just want it all to come out right without having to send anything back. Nothing was offered in compensation.
Still recommending this place as the view is incredible.
I chose this restaurant for the view and that part was just lovely and amazing. However, the food was not good. I ordered the chicken and sent it back twice since it was dry and tough and I was not able to get a knife through it. They did offer us free dessert, but I would not go back for dinner - maybe happy hour or a coffee to enjoy the scenery. The other dinner options were pretty standard - nothing special and nothing that had the Carolina experience.
