Diner Reviews
  • "We had a most enjoyable dinner at The Ram. Three of our party of four had the filet mignon, cooked perfectly as ordered, and the fourth had the salmon, which was reported as excellent as well. The fried onion straws were among the best onion ring-type dish I have ever had: just the right amount of spiciness, and the smaller pieces (as opposed to actual rings) made them much easier to handle and to eat. The friendly and efficient service was outstanding, particularly since we needed to finish our dinner in time to make it to the Sun Valley Ice Show, which was accommodated without problem."

  • "We went to the Ram expecting a high quality dinner and were very disappointed. The quality of the halibut I ordered and the steak my husband ordered were both below par. I would not go back next time I visit Sun Valley."

  • "I ordered a baked potato in a state famous for potatoes and received a little round ball. Sour cream cost an extra $2 and bacon bits costs an extra $2. This place is a major rip off. If I am going to pay this kind of money then I expect the food to be much better. the feeling you didn't get your moneys worth while being nickel and dimed in a world class resort is inexcusable."

  • "Open table menu for the Ram indicated ultimate wine tasting by the glass. No such thing however according to the server. Wine list essentially benign with no such Rotschild or Margaux as promised. Server overwhelmed. Food below par compared to previous experience. Bring back the old Ram"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Sadly the wine we ordered was not good. We thought that since the Sun Valley Lodge Dining room has been closed they must be getting rid of old wine that has not been stored properly. So disappointing. So substandard for a potentially wonderful restaurant. This ruined our dinner."

  • "When we arrived we were seated by the window. It was next to a noisy group. Our server, Deborah Fox, noticed this and read our minds and offered to move us to a quiet table. It was great, as was Deborah. The food, service, wine, pianist and ambiance were all fine. We look forward to our next visit to The Ram."

  • "We spent a great day skiiing at Sun Valley. Not wanting to head into Ketchum for dinner, we opted to eat at the RAM. Glad we made that choice. The setting was nice, the food was good and the waitress was great. We had a very nice evening."

  • "Lovely birthday evening at the Ram with salad and fondue! A little waxy last night, but usually a knockout. Wait staff as always extremely pleasant and professional. Piano wonderful as always."

  • "We chose this place because they advertised gluten friendly, but it's not. The menu didn't list options nor did the waiter know for sure what was or wasn't gluten free. Forgivable. However, the manager treated us like rif-raf because we asked for a different booth. He marched over to our table and slapped his card down telling us we should have called to request a booth, and now he would have to answer to his regular customers. He was totally tactless. Unforgivable. With so many great dining options in the area I recommend choosing someplace else!"

  • "The Ram has been a favorite of ours for years. January of 2014 was the first time we went there in about 5 years; apparently Sun Valley has hired a new chef, so some changes to the menu occurred. As always, the service and attentiveness of the staff was excellent - and the SV Inn is simply gorgeous. Our only disappointment involved the wine list and dessert. The wine list used to be quite extensive. Things have changed I had a VERY difficult time selecting something I recognized or felt confident would be very good. The abbreviated wine list is not a good change. We also missed the misc flavored creme brulees! Overall, a GREAT meal, with a couple of small disappointments. We'd definitely go again."

  • "Wow! The service was outstanding and friendly, the wine was good and reasonably priced. The food was terrible, so much butter... After three bites my finance' and I felt like an anchor was weighing us down. Felt overfull for hours after. I recooked the leftovers on a pan in the oven and drained off all the fat/butter. The food was marginally better after the butter drain. Worst $200 dinner ever..."

  • "We had dinner at The Ram on our last night in Sun Valley. The food was excellent, and the ambience was very nice. We dined on the patio near the piano, and the pianist regaled us with anecdotes about the resort between songs. The desserts were amazing- we would definitely dine here again if we ever go back to Sun Valley."

  • "Have been before in groups. Arrived just prior to our 8 p.m. reservation. Waiter was excellent, as was wine, appetizers, salmon and halibut main courses and dessert. Main courses were served nearly an hour after we finished our appetizers-cooks were overloaded trying to serve several groups. Matire'd apologized and paid for our meal, which we appreciated. The pianist was very good-just the right volume. We will go back, but the restaurant should avoid overbooking with large groups, or staff to accommodate them."

  • "Piano player is a real plus. Plays requests and is a walking encyclopedia regarding Sun Valley history."
    Dined on 3/1/2013
  • "Although the food is not as excellent as it used to be, the Ram is still a Sun Valley classic. The entrees were overcooked, the side dishes greasy or uninteresting. But the ambiance is as wonderful as ever. I wonder why it changed? The best entree ever was their Sea Bass with Lentils -- even the server said people ask for it all the time -- but it was taken off the menu."

  • "We have dined at the Ram for at least 15 years and always enjoy the dining room, the wonderful food (fondue!) and the piano player who always plays my special song. We went on Valentine's Day this year and our waiter forgot to take our wine order and then forgot later to bring our wine. No issue over that; we just asked! Love the Ram, always have, always will."
    Dined on 2/14/2013
  • "Everything about our experience at The Ram was outstanding. Our waiter was helpful, the food was outstanding and the experience enjoyable. I'm not a meat person, but I had the steak and it was so tender that it practically melted in my mouth. We definitely will eat again at The Ram the next time we return to Sun Valley. Be sure to put it on your list of places to eat in Sun Valley."

  • "The Ram is always a great choice. The food is excellent and the servers are friendly and attentive. Our recent dinner was during the Christmas holiday season and we enjoyed the carolers and surprise visit by Santa Claus. The Ram is a fantastic choise for a great meal to enjoy with family and friends. Ken - Seattle"

  • "I have been dining at the Ram for 35 years. Every year has been special but none more special than the new menu for 2012-2013 winter season. Food, service, ambiance all make it a special evening. We took two people who had NEVER been to Sun Valley and they compared it to the best restaurants in San Francisco but with a more "personal" touch. Well said!"
