Great service, good food. Our server was very helpful and nice.
Food was good even though a little bit expensive. My husband order the special of the day Halibut for $39 but it came by itself. He had to order a side and of course it came out to be more expensive.

Always perfect, but especially now when the view is so colorful! No worries if it is chilly, as it was on the day we lunched, they have overhead heating and lap blankets to keep you warm. We live in Ohio, so coming to the Grove Park each year is priority for us.

My partner and I always make a Fall trip to Asheville and make lunch at The Sunset Terrace a part of our visit. Amazing food in a historical setting with beauty all around- what more can you ask for. Definitely would recommend- a must see, eat and experience!

We went for a Birthday dinner and it was wonderful. My husband and I enjoyed the cocktail, an appetizer and dinner emensly. The food was fresh and delicious. The ambience was exceptional and the outdoor heating system made for a comfortable and memorable experience. A little pricey, but, worth every bit!

The management should visit the Palm restaurant in Charlotte to see what level of service they should strive to achieve at the terrace where dinner approaches a $100 per person. Food was great, ambience (music, setting, view) was fabulous. Service was horrible. As a frequent traveler who has eaten in more than a few fine dining establishments I was thoroughly disappointed.

The day was perfect, the place, the view and the place we was having lunch, our server Brad most have missed some training about customer service. First he was in a rush, never suggested the drink or wine, the drinks was not posted in the menu, and for the starter we wanted two of them instead of one, the starter was brought to the table by someone else, and our order was brought again by someone else, Brad did show up to refill our water glasses and ice and water went on the table, and he picked up the ice and tossed it over the edge and if landed on a lady wearing pearls, left the water on the table for us to deal with. The host told us we could ask your server for something special from the kitchen since the day was special, we drove 2 hours each way to share our day with each other and everything else was perfect, other employees treated us like a million dollars even the men working in the basement of the parking garage, before the pumper arrived an employee stood by serveral cars had liquid from over head pipes, he asked if I wanted my car washed, we had this to happen at other places and they had never offered to clean our cars. But this man went above customer service and maybe he should teach customer service.

We had awesome lunch overlooking Asheville in the peak of leaf season. The Grove Park is incredible by itself but being able to sit on the terrace overlooking the mountains was spectacular. The good was exceptional and the service was what you would expect from a 5 star restaurant.

This is without question one of the most scenic restaurants in the country. That alone makes the experience worthwhile. The food was excellent. The views and ambiance were without parallel. The service was mediocre, in fact it may have been less than that. Slow in serving the entre, the waiter disappeared when we needed the check and he also did not tell us the price of the evening's special, a NY strip that turned out to be $76. Normal menu items were on the very high end but not outrageous. The drinks were outrageously high priced. the evening was capped off with a $15 parking charge. I would, however go back if I was to return to the area.

Ordered filet medium based on the menu description and it was well done. Server immediately took it to the kitchen for a new one, 30 mins later I asked for the order to be canceled because everyone had finished eating. Then 5 mins later the manager brought the order and she did box it to go and didn't charge for the steak. I dine here at least 5 times per year and this was not typical.

This is our third time eating at the Sunset Terrace and it never disappoints. The view is absolutely spectacular down into Asheville, especially on a Fall evening. Our server was extremely attentive and the food was wonderful (we each had an 8 oz. steak). We'll be back!

The food and service were great. The table behind us was loud, obnoxious, drunk and foul-mouthed. There was an F bomb just about every 45 seconds.
It was scenic overlooking the city of Asheville but one needed additional lighting to read the menu and wine list. We used our cell phone light.
Either the staff and management were deaf or just didn't care. It took away from an enjoyable dinner.

Unfortunately we had a very disappointing experience. First with arrival, we were told no valet parking and we would have to park in the garage. No offer of assistance beyond that as far as parking. We had never been there before so we didn't know where we were going. Apparently the elevators were not working on the parking garage side so we had to find our way into the hotel via steps. There we found a functioning elevator. At this point we were a little surprised how difficult things were going. We get seated with a beautiful view. That was as far as the good part of the experience went. Very typical menu. We ordered a drink then an appetizer. Had a little chit chat and then the waiter came to see if we were ready to order. No appetizer yet. I had some questions on the menu. The waiter had no interest in helping with the menu. I have never been so rushed to order and so little help from the waiter. Still no appetizer. I ordered a cup of soup with my dinner. After a few minutes here comes the appetizer and my soup. We enjoyed the appetizer but I didn't even get to eat my soup and guess what? Here comes dinner. Unbelievable! This is suppose to be fine dining!
The presentation was awful. My plating looks better at home with my everyday dinner. I wish I had a picture to submit. Both our plates were white oval with a steak a garlic head and that was it! My steak was over cooked and the other steak was very undercooked. No, we didn't complain. At this point we had our steaks packed up and we left. Such an incredible disappointment. And the kicker is that the restaurant is named Sunset Terrace but you can forget about a sunset. You will not see one from this restaurant. Maybe you could have years ago before they built an additional hotel in the side of the original building. Needless to say the next trip to Asheville will not include a trip to Sunset Terrace.

Magnificent views, incredible food selections excellent service nothing more to ask for!! We had a unforgettable anniversary celebration--can't wait to return.
Brian provided impeccable service, the best service in quite sometime! He was very engaging, personable & extremely aware of all food options.

Our server, Patricio, was excellent. The view at sunset was beautiful. Food was mediocre, especially considering the high price. My steak was terribly oversalted, as was the sweet potato hash. My husband enjoyed his scallops, but neither meal was served hot, probably due to the distance to the kitchen. My recommendation would be to come here for a drink at sunset and then go to another restaurant in Asheville (like Bouchon) for a much better meal at a more reasonable price.

You don't go to Sunset Terrace for a cost effective meal. You go for the sunset, unbelievable view of the mountains, and the impeccable service. If you're traveling to Asheville, and looking for a great way to spend one of your evenings, this is a special experience you won't regret.

Another terrific lunch on the Terrace - will miss it this winter! The service is always terrific - Brian is a great addition to the team...
It may be simple but the smash burger is delicious & portion is right-sized.

Service was excellent and the view is spectacular. I was offered my choice of four different knives for my steak. Unfortunately the steak, while not bad was nothing to write home about. The au poivre sauce was bland and the mac and cheese side was too. My wife's grouper was dry and the "8 oz" fillet was more like five. The desserts we no better than what you can get at any hotel kitchen.
However the service both very friendly any efficient. Too bad the food wasn't equal to the excellent staff.

We have eaten here a number of times. This was an anniversary celebration. The long range view of the mountains and glimpse of downtown Asheville is incredible so I suggest you dine about an hour or so before sunset so you cap off the view with the beautiful last few rays of light in the Land of the Sky.
Cocktails, food, service --- GREAT. Not inexpensive but the view is priceless
