Had an amazing waiter but the food was expensive and sub par. We had four main courses which came with the exact same mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts! The potatoes had no taste and the Brussels sprouts were too charred. Pathetic for dining at a top hotel. Out of the desserts the maple creme brûlée was good.

Get an amazing espresso martini on the porch ( great bartender) but don’t stay for food.

Major renovation for the main dining room which has been transformed into a large lounge and a huge disappointment to long time guests. The dining room was originally designed to afford luxury style dining appropriate for this venue with an unobstructed view for diners no matter where they were seated. This is no longer a feature.

The ambiance & views were phenomenal and the service was excellent. I know that during these Covid times things are much more difficult... But I thought the menu was way too limited even for a "limited selection" and the food tasted average... Tasted good but nothing special. We really enjoyed the staff and could tell they have been working hard to accommodate everyone. I hope to come back another home (post Covid) and have a more typical experience :-)

If you don’t mind paying a lot of money for underwhelming food, this is the place for you.

I have been to this venue many times over the years and have always enjoyed their brunch, which due to no fault of their own (COVID 19) is no longer. The breakfast selection is fair, certainly not as robust as it used to be, but it was good.

Dinner on the other hand is another story. They only offer a selection of 5 or 6 dishes, not all of which are always available.

Save yourself the headache of being disappointed and go to the really great pizza place at the campground up the road... the prices are reasonable, the service is great and the food is actually fresh and delicious.

View and restaurant were very nice. My gnocchi were frozen out of a bag. My wife's dish was OK. Cesar salad was good. Desert was OK at best. Price was the same amount I paid earlier in the week to eat at a James Beard award winning restaurant on a per person bases. Definitely not worth the money! Stickle's is better!

Unfortunately the restaurant was so overwhelmed that we waited 1 hour, 15 minutes before we received our appetizers, then another 30 minutes for our main course. The explanation was that the chef was "going crazy"...that was it. Loved the food but wouldn't eat (stay) there again unless they staff up.

We made reservations to enjoy a splurge dinner to celebrate both a keystone day and our summitting of Mt Washington earlier that day.

The setting was the best part of the dinner, with a stunning view out the window of Washington and nearby summits of the Presidential range, though the outside of the windows could use a solid washing.

The service was good and somewhat attentive but hampered by COVID restrictions and low staffing. Flatware was missing when courses arrived, and not replaced when taken away between courses. Water was slow to be replenished. Wine glasses were spotted and one still had the plastic sticker on its base. Service was still good but not up to the legacy.

The menu is also limited during this time. The Caesar and wedge salads were superb. The entrees (pork medallions and braised short ribs) were very good but not spectacular. Again, it fell short of the pinnacle-level reputation of the Mt Washington.

Overall, 5 stars for the setting. 3-4 for the food. 4 for the service.

We enjoyed our time there, including a self-guided walking tour of the hotel at a time of very low occupancy.

The fine dining prices were not reflected in the food quality or service. Views are exceptional, as always. Vegetables were cold. Obviously made up in bulk at the beginning of the night. Disappointed in the buffet quality of the food. Service was slow and lackluster. Not a fine dining experience by any means.

We know they are in transition but I think people staying at the hotel will be disappointed with the menu selection and price in the new main dining room. 2 salads and 2 drinks, $60.00 with tip. Very few main courses and 2 deserts not including ice cream. Can’t wait for things to get back to normal.

It's No Longer Special!

My wife and I always enjoyed 1 or 2 meals in the Dining Room during our annual stays at the resort. It was a special place: one could dress up a little, have a nice meal and enjoy lovely live combo (or solo) piano music while dining. And, yes, upon occasion, we would even join other couples who were utilizing the large dance floor, though we were clearly not the equal talent-wise of most of them. Overall, a wonderfully pleasant and unique experience!

No longer: in the name of "renovation," the dance floor and live music are gone. Without them, the food, which was always a little overpriced, just seems ordinary, as is the whole dining experience. (We cancelled our second night's reservation!)

The food was pretty good - more like good quality pub fare. The dining experience was a little unnecessarily fussy for what it was, but all of the servers were really nice...even though they forgot our silverware for a while. The dining room was recently renovated and it has a jazz era beauty. There aren't a lot of options in the area and they book up fast.

We booked our table in the Main Dining room just a day before arriving for our anniversary night at the Hotel. The dining room is stunning, with beautiful views and decor. We had an incredible server, Azem, who was kind, prompt, and professional. It had all the right ingredients for a lovely night, but then the food arrived. The best way to describe it was as if a college dining hall hosted an elegant dinner night. A bit tasteless, certainly not worth the price. Regardless, we had a great evening and are appreciative of all of the staff who are working hard through a pandemic.

We escaped to MT.Washington Resort fir long weekend. We knew it would be different during COVID. Dinner in the main dinning room was the best meal of the weekend. The menu was very limited , but we found a few good items. The calamari was over cooked... certainly not worth the price. We requested to share a Caesar salad and the delivered it on 2 plates!

We also ordered lobster Mac and cheese and a rib eye to share. The ribeye was cooked perfectly and there was ample lobster in the Mac and cheese .

We also shared a piece of cheesecake.

Service was great ( our other meals that weekend had terrible service)

A lovely evening dining and dancing, but I was saddened to hear that the Mount Washington Hotel plans to eliminate the dance floor in the Main Dining Room to squeeze in more tables. This place has a unique ambiance and is one of the last venues where you could enjoy live orchestra music and dance between courses.

Not quite the way the dining room used to be. The menu was very limited. The clam chowder I had was excellent but the roast chicken (which I think was turkey) was very ordinary. No room for desert. Views, as always, absolutely stunning. I would advise hotel diners to consider Stickney’s restaurant on the lower level instead of the main dining room.

I have mixed feelings about dining at the Omni and do truly believe that our less than stellar experience was simply circumstantial. While good in concept, the food was underwhelming. That being said, the bartenders know how to make a martini. Next time I will stick to a liquid diet.

We were looking forward to having a lovely dinner in the Main Dining Room and we were extremely disappointed. The noise level was crazy, we felt as though we were at a children's birthday party. There were actually young children running laps, screaming at the top of their lungs being chased by an adult. To add fuel to the fire, the was below average at best and service was about the same. There were 5 of us dining and 2 returned their drunks and simply went with wine, the drinks were horrible!! Although the atmosphere is beautiful the experience left a lot to be desired. Sadly our experience was very disappointing.
