Diner Reviews
  • "I had had lunch here on several occasions, but never dinner. From arrival to paying our bill, everything was first class. I had mentioned it was a birthday celebration on the Open Table reservation and it was mentioned upon our arrival by the hostess, as well as our waiter. An expensive evening, but well worth it for the view and ambience!"

  • "We're staying @ The Grove Park Inn, we had our 1st dinner on the Sunset Terrace and it matched the spectacular view from our table. I had the Filet Mignon which was cooked and seasoned perfectly, my wife had the Mountain Trout, also perfectly done. The sides and service was just right, not too much or too little. Our waiter was knowledgeable not just about the preparation of the food, but its sources and just general info about the Inn and the gorgeous surrounding Asheville area.....Might eat there again tonight!"

  • "For prices - which are very high - service was pleasant but amateur. Two waitresses were both nice but awkward about whose table we were and who would do what. Gestures of keeping the napkins tidy or pulling seats for ladies to sit were nonexistent. Ambience was too loud to hear waitresses if they were not beside you (outdoors and big table, so must be challenging). I called in the morning to say that we were a table of 10 instead of 12, and when we arrived there were still 12 place settings. So we sat with two empty arrangements. When we arrived at 8pm for our 8:15pm reservation, we were greeted slightly dismissively, like go figure out what to do with yourselves bc you are early.... Staff is either young and inexperienced, or both.."

  • "This was a lovely restaurant- The food was nice as well. Several of the salads our group ordered were not up to par- some of the ingredients were a little off; one of my guests could not eat hers. The wine and cocktails were lovely- the dessert was lovely...it was an overall good experience. The level of noise with the Inn overall is unfortunate and this location within the restaurant seems to have the biggest issue with noice. We had a lovely private niche' but still had to shout to be heard over dinner; not the best way to enjoy a meal. Our servers were very polite and very knowledgeable about the menu- that was great."

  • "Great view, great service. Food was mediocre and over priced. Menu selections were very limited !"

  • "The chicken Caesar sandwich was disappointing. It was hard to eat because the large chicken piece in the sandwich and the lettuce and dressing kept slipping out of the focaccia bread. So it was very messy."

  • "The view, food and service was incredible BUT I found a hair in my crab cake sandwich. With that said the entire experience was very good except that made me have to pay more attention to looking for hairs than enjoying the experience. I do not plan to go back to this restaurant."

  • "We brought our family of 5 to the Sunset Terrace to celebrate a special event. The service was good but the food wasn't worth the $300 it cost us. The steaks were good but the trout was not good at all. Asparagus was bland. I love Grove Park but would be hesitant to eat at Sunset Terrace again."

  • "This was my third time dining at the Sunset Terrace over a 15 year period. I live in NJ so it's not a place I get to very frequently. My wife was along for this, her second, time and both of us enjoyed it immensely. Though it was a mostly cloudy day, the sun broke through just enough before nightfall to complement the outstanding dining experience and exquisite surroundings. Our server was pleasant and professional, stopping back enough to let us know we were important yet respecting our time to enjoy the meal. Our dinners were cooked just right with the presentation befitting the quality of the host inn. We both couldn't wait to again spend another dining experience here and highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Asheville, NC area."

  • "Very scenic and relaxing spot. Some areas of the restaurant have the tables grouped fairly close together, but it is a small price to pay for good food and a beautiful view"

  • "This was the first time my husband and I had eaten at the Sunset Terrace. Service was excellent and the food was outstanding. We both had steaks that were cooked to perfection. Side portions were generous and easily shared between the two of us. There were two large parties seated near us that were a little loud, but otherwise, the ambiance was excellent. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and look forward to our next visit."

  • "What a treat! Sunset Terrace was wonderful! Everyone was super friendly and the food, to die for! Make reservations!!! And request a table overlooking the lower patio so you can enjoy the amazing vistas unobstructed. We had hoped to watch the sunset during dinner but the clouds had other plans, didn't damper our evening though. My husband had the trout and I ordered the scallops, both were scrumptious!"

  • "Of course it's way overpriced. The waiter forgot my baked potato. Service was good. View as lovely. Seating was very comfortable. A nice place to visit but not often."

  • "My boyfriend and I came to the grove park inn for his birthday and had dinner overlooking Asheville at the sunset terrace! It was beautiful, the server, Stan, was great, the food was delicious, and they had my favorite wine which a lot of restaurants don't so that was great! We will definitely be returning! My only thing would be that I wished my $40 something filet had also come with a side or 2!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "It was a really nice one time experience to splurge. It's just not very accessible to most people and I really had no business buying a $42 steak, I just wanted to try it out. Does it really need to be that expensive or is it just to have prestige and make rich people feel like they are important and better? (Not sarcastic- I really just wonder what is going on with places that are this outrageously priced). I knew what I was getting into and enjoyed it."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "The Sunset Terrace is a perfect setting for a special occasion. It took our breath away! The restaurant atmosphere and the view are amazing. The nice waiter explained that the beef steaks were exceptional. We were somewhat disappointed as the pricey steak was dry and chewy. The tuna steak was excellent! The chicken dish was very good , though skimpy on veggies. We were happy with the beet salad and sides. We had ordered a birthday cake ahead. It was brought out in a timely manner and was delicious! Overall, the evening was a huge success!"
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "the overall experience was outstanding the main course (21 oz. bone in rib-eye was amazing best I have ever had). The sides was great, but the appetizers was a little bit of a let down compare to the rest of the menu. They were not alot of choices and for the price the quality was just ok but overall I would recommend this restaurant to someone else."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Of course the view is unmatched. Alot of reviewers were not that impressed with the food. However, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Some of the best scallops I've had. Roasted beets with fresh ricotta salad was excellent."

  • "Excellent mountain views in awesome Grove Park Inn. Waitress was very good and recommended good wine for my steak. Steak was good but for the price should have been better. Overall great spot for a special occasion."

  • "What a view on this grand patio at the Grove Park Inn!!! Beautifully done, top notch service and fantastic food!! Know as a steak house with premium cuts, the seafood is also outstanding. We had dinner one evening and lunch one afternoon. Both menus were unbelievable fresh and tasty. The service and ambiance are also just amazing. This is definitely a TOP spot and a must do if at Grove Park Inn!!"

  • "Took a friend from out of town there and also was my first time to go there as well. The view is absolutely breathtaking. I would have liked it if the tables were not so close ..you could hear others conversations clearly. The food was good, small proportions for the price. The wine they recommended came with a screw off cap. Disappointing in some respects but still had a nice evening."

  • "Read my full review on trip adviser: basically, portion sizes are out of whack...especially for the price. I will not dine on the Sunset Terrace again, but would order a drink or cup of tea."

  • "It was my husband's birthday. When I made the reservations, I mentioned what we were celebrating. From the minute we arrived, staff wished him a happy birthday. He got attention from our server. She delivered a lovely desert treat served on a platter with the words "happy birthday". They made the evening just a special as I had hoped. It was wonderful. Great dinner, lovely view, and great service. Nice!"

  • "For the most part, our second visit to the Grove Park Inn Sunset Terrace after five years was as wonderful as the first with two exceptions. We ordered the crab cake appetizer, as we had before, but instead of two cakes there was just one, and it was nowhere near as good, missing the large chunks of crab that had made us vow to get it again. And though my wife's filet was incredible, my lamb was far too underdone for the medium rare I'd ordered."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We had front row seat on the terrace with a fabulous waiter (Shaun). The rack of lamb and pork chop with sides (mushrooms, fingerling potatoes) were done as we like them. A leisurely based meal ending with a beautiful sunset. Could not ask for a better evening."

  • "This luncheon was for a friends birthday.After leaving the restaurant she said that is was the best birthday she has ever had, And at 74 years, that is saying something. I would recommend to anyone. William Ruthven"

  • "I took my girlfriend there for a late dinner and fireworks. The staff couldn't control the folks in the lobby from going out on the terrace where we were dining so we saw no fireworks at all.. major disappointment and I won't return there for the 4th of July."

  • "What could be wrong with a terrace restaurant at a place like the Grove Park Inn, with an panoramic outdoor sunset view of Asheville, North Carolina and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Add a creative and diverse menu, perfectly prepared, and perfect service (our top-notch waitress was Sidney), and you have the perfect place for a very special occasion (our 25th anniversary). Nothing could have been any better."
