Sunset Terrace - Omni Grove Park Inn Ratings and Reviews

We thought the food to be quite pricey. Also, it was unclear that what was added to the burgers
increased the cost by $2 for each one to the final tally - interesting ploy!!! Ergo, a rather ordinary cheeseburger wound up costing $20. No wonder there was no crowd on a beautiful day.

Overall we really enjoyed the restaurant and WOW what a view! The service was good and the waitress did a nice job. We also found a very nice bottle of wine on the list. The food was good except the steak. Both my wife and I had a steak and they came out well-done rather than medium. This is sort of a big mistake on two $40+ pieces of meat.

The view is fantastic and the food is very good. The cocktails were great and very seasonal. The chef made an appearance at our table upon request. The service started off strong and then became inattentive and it was difficult to get the check.

Everyone recommended the Sunset Terrace at Grove Park and it did not disappoint! The view from the outside terrace was incredible. I had the bone in Ribeye and asparagus it was very good. The steak was tender, moist, and had great flavor. They tell you the sides are just enough for one, but my wife and I shared mine. If you are looking for a great Steakhouse in Asheville with views to die for, this is the place! The service was outstanding. Our server was very personable and took very good care of us. I would recommend a reservation because this is an outdoor (Covered Terrace) experience and is subject to temperature changes.

Although we arrived a bit early for our 1:00pm reservation, the hostess seated us with a big smile and warm greeting. We were seated at a perfect table with a great view. The wait staff was prompt and attentative through out the service. My wife and I split a Ceaser grilled chicken salad and smoked turkey sandwich, both were delicious. Highly recommend for that special lunch.

Hostess rude and impolite; exhibited an air of superiority; turned off in the first moments. Arrived for an 8:00 reservation at 7:50..,....no warm greeting, just the comment "your reservation is for 8:00, we will seat you then" totally absurd as the seating area was not even full

We had 8:15pm reservations on a weeknight. As expected the views were beautiful, i was concerned the food could not live up to the views, but the food tasted great.
What ruined the experience was our server and all blame goes to the management of the Omni for not providing any sort of service standards to their dining room team.
We waited 15 minutes for a server, when he arrived the 2 of us each ordered a cocktail and I ordered a bottle of wine for after the cocktails. It took another 15 minutes as we watched our waiter walking across the dining room sloshing our martinis onto his tray.
After ordering, our salads came right out, while we were eating our salads, we watched as another server or food runner brought our main course to the table and did a quick U-turn when he noticed we were still eating 1st course.
At one point I had an empty wine glass and empty water glass, I asked for more water which our server poured, but ignored the empty wine glasses.
Needless to say as soon as we put down our salad forks, our meals were immediately delivered. I finished my meal before my companion, and as soon as I did, my plate was taken away making my friend feel rushed- of course no one asked how the meal was.
The check was brought before anyone asked if we wanted coffee or dessert- I assume our waiter was in a rush to leave and so were we. There was no one at the hostess stand when we left, no one said good night, or thank you for coming or for dropping $250 on dinner for two.
One final suggestion for Omni management- get your dining room staff sone light weight attractive- breathable uniforms. The long sleeve white shirts on just about every server and bus boy were grey and dingy.

Strip steak was grilled to perfection, and the Béarnaise, which had been a disappointment previously, was back up to snuff. Creamed spinach and the mushrooms were good. Service was great, not only from our primary server, but her support staff as well. Would like to see more local meats and vegetables featured as they used to do in the past (under the Sammons').

I have been to the Grove Park Inn a number of times and eaten at several of the dining options there. The inn is great, historic, beautiful with incredible views but the food just isn't anything special and it is extremely expensive. There are great dining options in Asheville but it's a 15 minute drive down a winding road to get to them so if you want to eat on property the Sunset Terrace is a good option and my pork chop was good but it was $39 plus $8 ala-cart sides; my wife's fish was not good although they were happy to replace it with another fish dish that was also average; but it came quickly. The wine list is good but an equally poor value. If you are going to go have a drink at the very cool lobby bar before hand and request a table on the stone wall overlooking the mountains. The view is incredible.

Overall we had an ok dinner, the view was the definitely the highlight of our night. We were celebrating our anniversary and I specifically requested a table near the edge of the dining room. I placed my reservation well in advance. When we got there we were seated in the middle of the dining room. We then realized that there was a totally empty table by the edge, we had to ask to be relocated. Next the food-Starters were average( salad, and beets) but nothing amazing, my entree of salmon was good, but my husbands filet mignon was totally overcooked and dry. He asked for medium and it was well throughout. Pretty disappointing considering the price of the steak. Dessert of creme brûlée was fine. Next time I'd skip the restaurant and have drinks by the bar below for the view.

There isn't a better place to have an excellent meal with a spectacular view of the mountains than the Sunset Terrace Restaurant at the Grove Park Inn. This is the second summer we have joined our friends to have lunch there. It's much more than a dining experience. It's a special occasion.

The view is not comparable anywhere else in town! We chose Sunset Terrace strictly for this reason and to enjoy a wonderful meal before leaving Asheville. My only complaint was that it took 30 minutes for a waitress to check on us after giving us water and given that we sat at 8:30p, I was already starving and starting to get a bit grumpy. Once our order was placed it was smooth. Food was great and we enjoyed a bottle of wine with dinner. A bit pricey but worth it.
We believe this would have been a better ...
We believe this would have been a better experience, except it was so hot and sunny that we and everyone around us were uncomfortable. Despite 4 glasses of water, served diligently by Patricio, we couldn't really enjoy the meal. I would recommend the Terrace at or after sunset or possibly when the weather is cooler.
View and service were great but the $425 ...
View and service were great but the $425 bill for 7 people, including 5 teenagers, was a bit steep. Steaks were overcooked relative to what was ordered and at $55+ apiece they should get it right. Trout was dry and overcooked. I remember this being better before Omni bought the place. Maybe better for a drink and then grab dinner in the Blue Ridge Grill to spare your wallet the pain.

We had dinner here on July 31, 2016 as we were staying at the Grove Park Inn resort.
We had a later dining time and we wanted to change it to an earlier time and the hostess
really went out of her way to accommodate our earlier time. The view is magnificent and EVERYTHING we ordered was fantastic. We had the roasted beets and the Bison meatballs for
our Apps. and for our dinner we had the Filet and the Wagyu NY strip with pale ale mac n cheese
and sweet potato hash and it was the absolute beat steak dinner we ever had. Both steaks
were so juicy and flavorful and tender and the service was 5 star. It was pricey, but for a special
occasion it is worth it. We will be back.

The lobster Cobb salad was amazing! The Sunset Terrace had gorgeous views , our server Michael was attentive and personable, and we had a great time reading about all the famous people that have been guests at the Inn.

So incredibly disappointed.
Service stunk, food came out wrong (twice), we waited 1 hr for bread & water.
This was just so inexcusably bad.... And $100/ pp made it even worse.
This was my fourth time there.
Doubt I ever come back.

We've been here twice now. Excellent experience. It's hard to compete with great food and looking at the blue ridge mountains at sunset. Server did great job in providing suggestions and helped make experience even better.
