The menu was very limited. Not as much to choose from as I would have liked. Very pricey for what we got. Great service. Lovely surroundings. Rather disappointing.

The restaurant itself is stunning, and the views here can’t be beat. This was our first time in Bretton Woods, NH and we weren’t familiar with the area, so we decided to stay and have dinner at the hotel. Our server, Spencer, was great and very personable - he made us feel at home and was great at giving recommendations. The food was good, but not spectacular. I had the halibut which was a little dry, but still tasty enough. My daughter had the kid’s grilled chicken, which she enjoyed. My son had a seafood dish which he also liked and my husband had the salmon. I wish they had more options for grain-free/gluten-free diners. I wanted to love this place, but I expected a much better meal for the cost of the dinner. It really wasn’t worth the very elevated prices. I felt like I was paying for the view and ambiance instead of the food.

The view from the dining room is spectacular and not to be missed and is reason enough alone to book a meal there. The room itself is a delightful throwback to big hotel dining rooms.

However, the food was mediocre at best. While the wild mushroom and puff pastry was tasty, the two pasta dishes we had could be described as (1) pappardelle with cheesy sauce and (2) scallops with too much pasta. The pasta in each dish was way past al dente.

Sorry to report this because the hotel and its setting are so, so beautiful.

If you visit the resort or the area surrounding I would recommend making special plans to eat at the Main Dining room at Omni Resort. We made reservations to celebrate our wedding anniversary there and were met with wonderful service, from the hostess to the waiter and even the manager, they all made the experience lovely. I had read some less than great reviews about the food but disregard them! The meal was amazing. We were even offered a special dessert to celebrate our special occasion. It is an upscale place so of course the meals are a little pricey but when you consider the atmosphere and unbeatable mountain views it's more than worth it. Live piano playing added to the ambiance. It was wonderful and we are already talking about our next trip there.

This was our first visit to the Mount Washington Resort and chose this special place to celebrate our anniversary. One of the many crown jewels, of our stay, was eating dinner and having brunch in the Main Dining Room of the Omni Mount Washington Resort. We were satisfied with our entire stay and hope to return.

Frankly, if you are staying at the resort, there aren't all that many options for dining. Overall, the experience was acceptable. Our server was knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. The meal was fine, not great. Frankly, I expected more for a resort of this quality and the price. Chef needs to work on his seasoning. I had the seafood stew, which was cooked well, however the flavor and seasoning were unremarkable. For $40ish an entrée, I expected more. But like I said, not many options when you are in the middle of nowhere!

What a gorgeous place to spend a special night. The food was great, the wine was paired well, and our waitress was perfect. Prices seem a bit steep, but you pay for the atmosphere and historical venue too so I didn't mind.

Loved the historical concept/view and looked at menu on line and when arrived, completely changed. Like many different foods and all four in group ordered differently and were disappointed especially at cost. I have culinary education and table was not even cleaned in between courses. Was the best view though.

This is dining that is becoming a lost art. It is dinner and dancing. Perfect for romance and/or special occasions. Hotel is from the grand old age when Captains of Industries travelled and stayed at these majestic resorts. Old school wait staff. Nobody asking, "how you guys doin' tonight". Pianist in background playing one standard after another. Maybe a nice slow dance in between courses. The food is worth trading in your jeans for slacks, dress shirt and sportscoat. The cranberry crusted salmon was one of a kind. Something like that I have not tasted anywhere on the east coast, west coast or any other place outside the US. Truly, a remarkable dish. Layers of flavor were exquisite, but that cranberry crust makes the dish one of my top ten best from my travels throughout this world. How surprising is that!!

Slow to bring food and dessert menu etc. should have been more cognizant that we had a baby with us and would need to keep things moving along. Wife had to leave to feed baby before we could order dessert unfortunately since it was her birthday and they would have sung happy birthday to her. Food was ok but not great for what we paid. Chicken was dry, scallop portion was a bit small.

We decided to eat in the Main Dining room because of our birthdays and the speciality of restaurant. Service at the beginning was slow to get to table. We must have waited a good ten minutes before we saw waitress. I feel this is unacceptable for the prestige of the Mount Washington or any restaurant. An acknowledgement would have been nice if she was extremely busy but restaurant was not even half full. Our waitress came to table and took our order. I wanted to get the seafood chowder and asked what was in it. She did not know. I was not impressed. As I am in the food industry and you never want to tell a customer I dont know. You are selling the food you should know! We ordered a ribeye steak and a filet with shrimp with a veal reduction. Lets just say the steak was cooked to perfection (mr) but the veal reduction sauce was so salty that it ruined the whole meal. My daughters steak was also cooked to her liking but her sauce was also extremly salty. It was like someone in the kitchen or the sous chef did not taste his sauce. We did not have drink and our bill was $119. 00 without tip. I wa so disappointed and won't eat in dinning room again. Attention to detail is so lacking in the kitchen and in wait staff.

Left a message for the hotel/restaurant before our arrival stating that it was a special occasion for my husband and I requested a window with a view, we were stuck in the corner with only one of us able to look out the window at the side of the hotel/partial mountain. I would not have mentioned it if the restaurant was crowded but there were 4 other tables with 100% beautiful Mountain View’s THAT WERE EMPTY! Food was ok and pricey.

We dined at the Mount Washington Resort restaurant for Easter Sunday brunch. It was a beautiful day at the resort. The food offerings were delicious and plentiful. Service was attentive as always. Enjoyed a pre brunch cocktail in the lounge. Enjoyed walking around the grounds also after brunch. The resort is always an amazing experience. We are somewhat local so we did not sleep at the resort. Just went for dining.

We have been several times. This time the food was good but not as good as usual. Our waitress seemed not to like her job. There was nothing pleasant about her. She seemed put out when I asked for red wines glasses instead of the white wine glasses she gave us when we ordered a bottle of red. Also it was a birthday and I was asked about it when we arrived by the host and there was no mention of it again.. it was my sons bday and in the past it was celebrated with a small desert which was lovely. We tried to not let her spoil our evening as we have been going to the mt Washington hotel every year for the past 18 years. When you pay the high prices you expect great service. And great food.

At our recent stay at the Mount Washington Resort we decided to splurge for a special occasion and dine in the Main Dining Room. It is a beautiful space with an outstanding view of the mountains. We were greeted by staff and seated immediately. Our waitress was a little unusual; a few times she appeared to back away from our table rather than check with us to see if we wanted to order drinks and/or appetizers. We ended up doing both, without much of a wait. When she told us about the specials, she was careful to note the number of shrimp in one of the dishes. I only wish she had done the same for the scallops appetizer. We were very disappointed, when it arrived at the table, to see that it only contained two scallops, neither particularly large. That dish was $17, and while it was tasty, it seems absurd to me to pay that amount for two scallops. The appetizers plates and serving plates were not removed until we asked the bus person to do so. The rest of the dinner was fine, nothing amazing. We will very likely not visit again.

We came here for my husband's 64th birthday. It was wonderful! 😀. The views of the mountains are breathtaking! Absolutely beautiful. Then to do the zip line, cross-country ski or downhill is fantastic!! This was our first time here and from the valet, bell guys, express check-in, dozen roses and chocolate strawberries/champagne in our room, the piano guy playing happy birthday and the room singing Happy Birthday, also another couple celebrated their 43rd anniversary - how awesome, and of course last but not least toasting my husband's (and his daughter in Baton Rouge LA) birthday again one last night at one of 2 outside fire pits was awesome!!

Will make this an annual event, March 22, my husband loved it!!

The food was bland, basic, boring and incredibly overpriced. The menu clearly had not been updated since the opening of the resort in 1902. It was essentially flavorless, low quality, country club food.

We had a most enjoyable dinner on Saturday. We were unable to get a table for a large group at Stickney’s or Bretton Arms with a week’s prior notice but themain dining room was able to accommodate us without a problem.
The food was delicious- especially the surf & turf and the special, and the service, very attentive.
We would recommend this to others for a special occasion as the menu was more pricey than the other restaurant mentioned- and not something we’d do everyday.
