    The food here has been better in the past, having eaten here many times. Recently the food preparation has gone downhill. Overcooked chicken sandwich. The view is absolutely spectacular. I am hoping the Sunset Terrace will realize that the latest style of food preparation needs to improve. If you're looking for excellent food at a good value for your money you may consider another restaurant. The ambiance and the view of the Blue Ridge Mtns. is unbeatable.

    We love dining at the Sunset Terrace at the Grove Park Inn. Love the view and the atmosphere any time of year. The food is always good and service is outstanding. We were disappointed to learn though that this was the last week for outside dining till the spring. Although the weather is about to change, the terrace is equipped with overhead heaters, which were on the evening we were there and we were more than comfortable. We wish there were someway to continue outside dining throughout the winter months by perhaps installing shades that could be pulled down with the addition of the heaters. Overall a very enjoyable dining experience!

    My wife and I came here in 2013 and absolutely loved every bit of it. We came back again this year for our anniversary, after craving it for a year, and were every bit as impressed our second time around. Is a little pricey but well worth it; a completely unique and unforgettable experience.

    I have had wonderful experiences before...great food and service. However this night the food and service were very poor. 8 o'clock reservation and my requested table were honored and after what happened the manager did come to the table to listen to my complaints. It took about 20 minutes for the bottle of wine to be served and then appetizer, salad and dinner were all served at one time about five minutes later. Omni Grove Park Inn has been my go to place to impress people visiting me in Asheville. I will think twice about eating there again.

    We really enjoyed our visit to Grove Park Inn for the beautiful view, wonderful food and drink, and all the history and unique shops. The quaint foyer, live music, and gorgeous stone fireplaces and seating areas make it a special place to relax after dinner. Everyone greeted us and made us feel so welcome there.

    My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here. We were blown away by the views and the romantic ambience. I would expect impeccable service at a place like this, but we had to ask for beverage refills when they were empty and my husband's dinner arrived 7 minutes before mine did. He politely waited for mine to arrive, though his was now cool. The waiter apologized and the manager walked by and smiled but that was it. Having waited tables for years in college, I can tell you the manager would've been right over to apologize and offer a salad or something while I wait. Ours said nothing. I wasn't impressed. We had an awesome meal the following night at Tupelo Honey. Not five star dining but delicious food and excellent service!

    We loved the outlook of this restaurant. We stopped in Asheville for a couple of days to see the Fall colors and this was the perfect dinner location to top off the trip. The service was also wonderful. The waiter was a pro and very easy to talk too. They even serve fresh biscuits and honey, a treat I haven't had in years.

    Great ambience and views. Service was great. But food was not the best and for the price I was disappointed. Also, why charge so much for the entree and then charge for each side dish? Price was ridiculous. If you want a better dining experience for that price, go to biltmore inn. At least the food measured up to the price point.

    We made reservations over a month in advance and requested sunset seating on the edge. The hostess' skipped over us 3 times for other people and finally when I did get to check in they attempted to seat us on the far end with no sunset view. We then requested to be moved but had an obstructed view still. The food was good minus a few of my shrimp were bad. The server Lauren was fantastic and service at table was excellent. I was disappointed in overall experience especially for the money.

    As dining in NC goes, this may be top of the line. The seafood was pretty good, but I would not describe it as expertly prepared. Steak (filet) was good, but my companion ordered it medium and sent it back to be cooked medium well, do I don't think you can really get a good sense of the flavor with it cooked to that level. Servers were excellent and even gave a little birthday treat to the guest of honor, which was a very nice touch.

    The view is wonderful and the outdoor sitting great. The food, on the other side, is just ok towards good. Ingredients were fresh (had trout and scallops), scallops were very good. Onion soup seemed home made but was not enough seasoned. Sides were not very creative. Beef tartare was decent but too tiny.

    I really loved the overall experience, it was swanky and affluent for those that are not rich however provides the setting and atmosphere for the various social class groups to come to an equilibrium and all to be treated as equally the same. I felt like I was one of the stars or iconic people who have visited before me. Keep up the good work. I didn't see anything mass advertising which is great in my opinion because it's more of an word of mouth based recommendation and I'm more of an emotional impulsive spend that is brand conscious that have high-end taste.

    After happily finding that the quality of food in this restaurant was greatly improved this year we were very disappointed in our recent meal, and the waitress informed us that there was a new cook. Chicken au jus should not be sitting in a bowl of soupy, greasy juices along with the vegetables. Trout should not be served in a bowl full of liquid either. These meals failed and if the new cook is going to alter your menu items, you better make sure they are improved by the changes. Changing the menu would not be a bad idea either.

    Last weekend (10/14/2014) , I had my second meal at the Sunset Terrace, and once again, was amazed at the quality of food, service and ambiance delivered by this great restaurant. The food was very tasty & we spent a very enjoyable evening being served by a waitress who really knew how to make a person feel like a king or queen! Kudos to The Omni for maintaining the personal and "non resort" feel in a quaint setting in a large hotel. The food is not cheap, but certainly worth the cost to enjoy a very special evening!

The food while a little pricey was very good but that's not the reason we eat here. Service was excellent as well!

    We took my Mom out for her birthday. It was rainy and all other inside Grove Park restaurants had filled up. So, we decided to eat on the terrace in stormy weather. Well---they had heat out there and the view of the storm was amazing. It was off and on, so we had a wonderful meal, excellent service, and a fantastic time. We are glad we ended up outside on the Terrace because it was beautiful and memorable!
