Diner Reviews
  • "Sunset Terrace was amazing! Our waitress Alexis was wonderful. The food & wine was spectacular, and the scenery was breathtaking. I would highly recommend going and ordering the best lamb in the USA!"

  • "One of our favorite places to come when we are in the area. The view is magnificent and so soothing. Your mind can wander to the history of the Grove Park and beyond. Always a good way to relax and unwind, not to mention unplug. Don't miss it."

  • "We were sat behind a pillar, obscuring the reason we were there (the sunset). I ordered the filet medium rare and it came out very rare. The sauces that were recommended completely overwhelmed the taste of the steak. Overall, not worth the money spent and we will not be returning."

  • "The view from the terrace of Asheville and the mountains is wonderful. Food was delicious and the server was friendly and efficient. Admittedly, it's a bit pricy. But worth it for that special occasion."

  • "It was a beautiful setting. We went in August around 6 and it was muggy so dress appropriately - but the sun was also hitting us. I bet this would be fabulous in the fall!"

  • "The food was excellent, and the service was lovely, but it was the setting/view we came for. That was outstanding. We probably wouldn't spend this much if it weren't a special occasion ($340 for 4 ppl, apps but no desserts), but for my parents' 50th anniversary it was fantastic. We did arrive on the hottest day of the summer, which was unfortunate - 85+ degrees, and the sun was on us as it fell lower in the sky (about half of our dinner). The terrace is covered, and we weren't right at the edge, but we still weren't shaded for all of dinner. Just something to keep in mind if we return again........"

  • "Have had lunch here many times over the years. Our guests always enjoy the food, service and view. Our servers were on the ball and everything came to us just as we ordered it. The Inn looks better than ever. Keep up the great work in this American Icon."

  • "We received our appetizer and salad course at the same time. This was before we even received our pre-dinner cocktail. Felt rushed. Hard to enjoy when you feel you are being moved along too quickly."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "Dinner, service and atmosphere were all absolutely fabulous. My wife and I had dinner early evening in summer and were seated at a perfect table at the edge of the terrace with a picture perfect panoramic view. The only thing we would change is to be sure to make later reservation (7:30 would be ideal). Then it would be cooler, while still early enough to enjoy all the stages of the beautiful sunset. The Sunset Terrace is worth every penny and we are already making plans to go back with friends."

  • "Beautiful spot. Wonderful service. Unfortunately the food does not live up to ambience. We had a crab cake sandwich and a lobster salad. The crab cake was too much mayo and not the crabmeat was not lump backfin, or at least it was so chopped up as to not be recognizable as such. The salad itself was very fresh and tasty, but the lobster was watery, as if it had been frozen and thawed. It's consistency was not what we expected from fresh, properly cooked lobster."

  • "The food and service were excellent. A bit pricey though. Sun was uncomfortably warm until it went behind a building."

  • "Sunset Terrace was fabulous! Exceptional food, Terrific service and great surroundings!"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "While the food was decent (I've had way better at comparably priced restaurants), it took way too long for us to get our food. Over one hour and 15 minutes between ordering and our main course arriving. The couple at the table next to ours ordered 5 minutes before us and had already left before we were served our main course (and they have the same number of courses). While the server was friendly and generally provided good service (i.e. refilled glasses timely), she never apologized or acknowledged the long delay. Salad orders were both wrong on original delivery, but corrected pretty quickly. Not what I would expect out of a $150 dinner."

  • "I am a Filet Man...but WOW! The Bone in Ribeye tasted like it was cooked by John Wayne over campfire. Perfect blend of crispy and juicy. My wife did have the filet and it was cooked perfectly. The view is great and the staff was fun. Grove Park is a gem and I hate to admit that the Omini take over helped. I was a tad bit saddened that Omini took over but they gave tasteful upgrades and the staff was amazing. The dinner is a must. A bit pricey but who cares. You cant eat money!"

  • "Our evening on the Sunset Terrace was outstanding. The views are always spectacular and so is the food and service. One of our favorite places to dine in Asheville, especially when entertaining out-of-town guests. It simply can't be beat!!"

  • "My wife and I had dinner there to celebrate her birthday. We very much enjoyed both the dinner and the fantastic view of the mountains. The weather couldn't have been better during our stay."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "One of the best meals I have had. The setting and view could not be better. Service was perfect, food was some of the best we have had. I thought the menu selection was a little limited if you didn't want beef. The only negative is it really expensive. I have eaten at many of the top restaurants in the US and the Sunset Terrace is at the top of the expense scale."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Chosen based on reviews from others and the fact my spouse is a beef eater. Plenty to choose from on the menu whether a la carte or meals. My spouse got the caesar and said there were only 1.5 anchovies and the white ones lacked flavor (clearly a traditionalist). He also said the dressing lacked flavor. I ordered the wedge and it was so beautiful I took a picture and the flavor was even better. We loved the ability to pick sauces to suite your palate. However the chef didn't pay attention to our request and both of our medium rares came without any pink. A sin to do that to good meat! The sides are large so take that into consideration, each one of ours could have served 2 or more. Wine list good whether by the bottle or glass."

  • "There are some restaurants you hope you'll get to enjoy over and over. Omni Grove Park Inn's Sunset Terrace is definitely one of those restaurants. We try to have lunch there each time we visit Asheville. We are never disappointed. My lobster salad was delicious. Until next time!"

  • "Great service from Waitstaff(Stan) & Mgr. Vincent. Food was exceptional. We would recommend this a year long outdoor dining venue. The view, comfort, food, and personable staff make for a full destination getaway! Thank you for a special birthday celebration!"

  • "The $48 bone in rib-eye was terrible. It was very grisly and undercooked. We have had much better steaks at Outback restaurant. It was so revolting that the husband was not in the mood afterwards to take another one. So he passed on it. At least we got a free dessert . But my filet was very good and cooked perfectly. You would think that a restaurant such as this , they would of made sure that it didn't happen in the first place."

  • "Going to a restaurant outside, one does want to plan for the unexpected. I was wearing a sleeveless dress, I did bring an extra layer just in case I was chilled, I was burning up the entire time. The weather outside was great! Nice and cool for an August evening after 8pm, exactly what one would expect in the mountains of WNC. However, while on the patio, it felt like the heaters were on. It was so hot, when the couple sitting next to us on the edge of the patio got up, she kindly whispered to me that they were at our table previously and requested to move to the table on the edge when that couple left. This sounded promising, but alas we were not allowed. Not very accommodating. The staff was pleasant and the food what one would expect."

  • "We enjoyed our dinner very much at the Sunset Grille. The sirloin steak was superb as were the scallops.The lemon chill pie was yummy. Mozzerella salad was just ok. The waitstaff were very friendly and accommodating."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "the setting is lovely, it is pricey - especially the wines but we knew that going in. we were celebrating. our service was VERY rushed - food delivered before we were finished with our salad - and were asked at least three "can we clear your plates". we had to ask for steak knives!"

  • "Not only is the Grove Park Inn filled with historical significance, the Sunset Terrace Restaurant offers that old style feel, while at the same time giving the diner a delicious meal that was very memorable. The view is spectacular and the whole experience made our anniversary special."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "The Sunset Terrace is a must if you are in Asheville, and of course sunset is the ideal time to go. The view of the Blue Ridge mountains and the beautiful wooded valley are breathtaking. Pair that with fantastic food, great friendly service, and delicious cocktails and desserts and it is well worth a splurge. Yes it's pricey but firmly in the category of worth it. We dressed up but it is a resort where people are relaxed and more casual attire is acceptable."

  • "Sunset Terrace at the Omni-Grove Park is our go to restaurant in Asheville. We were there for my wife's birthday dinner (several other birthdays on the terrace that night, too) and then back again for lunch. We loved introducing other people to this find. We've been going to eat there for 20 years and plan to continue another 20."

  • "Beautiful great service. The food is good for lunch overpriced for dinner. Exquisite service and setting. They put mustard on my grass fed burger! Who does that without asking? I had an amazing butterscotch chocolate ganash creme brûlée! Valet parking should be free for the Resturaunt great fun for company"

  • "The food and service were perfect. Probably the best lobster we have ever had. However, there was a table next to us of young professional men who were loud and drunk who kind of ruined our dinner. Other than that I would highly recommend Sunset Terrace. We plan to go back this week!"

  • "We had a table on the outside rail, upper level at 8:15, sunset just starting, a couple of glasses of wine, and things just got better from then on. we finished a great meal and it was dark, a great setting for romantic dinner"

  • "We felt like we were just another room number. Service was adequate, though a bit slow. Food was good, but we have had much better for the price. Views of the mountains was spectacular...part of the cost of "admission", I guess."
