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!!
Restaurant is elegant dining. Wonderful view of Mt Washington , excellent food.
My soup was gross and the waitress knew something was wrong when she delivered it. It was never removed from the bill.
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.
Our dining experience at the main dining room at Mt. Washington hotel was perfect! The food was spectacular, the view was superb, and the service was exceptional. A great evening!
Cod special was dry and salty. Stewed Mushroom app was excellent.
Lovely dining room
Nice service very pleasant experience.
Would revisit but try another dish.
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.
Service is slow and food is inconsistent. Had the same appetizers twice and they were completely different. The first time the scallops were great. Second time, not so much.
Beautiful location. Food and service were top notch. Kid friendly but dressy clothes preferred. Take a step back in history!!!
I made a Valentine's Day dinner reservation at the Main Dining Room. The atmosphere was nice including the piano player. Our server was very attentive and pleasant. My fiancé and I were very disappointed with the quality of the entrees. We both had beef tenderloin and grilled shrimp. The tenderloin was average at best, the steamed carrots and broccoli were undercooked and very bland. The au gratin potatoes were lukewarm and clumpy. It seemed as if all items came out from a buffet under a heat lamp after sitting for hours. We eat out often in Portsmouth, NH and Portland, ME, and this food wasn't even close to the same quality or presentation. It reminded me of My college years when I ate at Applebee's or Ruby Tuesday's. I expected a more gourmet fare for the prices charged. The Hotel and Stickney's Pub was great, but I would not recommend the Main Dining Room to anyone. It needs a new chef with a good resume.
Always a pleasure to dine here. Angela was our server. She was perfect! Solicitous without intruding. Friendly and knowledgeable regarding the menu. Her service and manners were impeccable. (Not so with every person in the wait staff sad to see)
Our meals: outstanding.
We had the soup starter as well as rustic meat and cheese platters. All delicious. Salads were fresh and seasoned perfectly.
Dinners were scallops, salmon, chicken and tofu so we really had all corners covered and each was as well done as the next. Leave room for dessert.
My fiancé and I ate here for Valentines Dinner. The main dinning room was stunning. It reminded me of where the rich people ate on the titanic lol. Someone was playing the piano, people were dancing. It was romantic. However, I didn’t like the food. The salad was mainly lettuce ($14) hardly tasted any dressing. The main course was 2 chicken thighs, a few cut up baby potatoes ($28) My fiance got scallops (only got 3 for $14) a salad, mainly lettuce ($14) and his main course was a tiny steak, 3 shrimp and a scoop of mashed potato ($46) I knew the dishes would be expensive but damn give me some food for that price.
Went to Mt Washington for a winter getaway. Enjoy one dinner at Stickney’s and a Valentines Day dinner in the main dining room which was very special and made memorable by the dining room host and our waiter. Not only were we well attended to but they worked hard to keep other guests as well attended as we were.
My husband I really enjoyed this dinning experience it was a first time at MT Washington resort.
They took care of all or needs and did not rush at all. Staff was very knowledgeable.
Would recommend this for everyone.
Lovely pre-wedding dinner for 14. The food was very good, the service was professional and very attentive and the setting was excellent.
Food and service were great. Piano player was a bonus. Had a great stay and will return.
Our anniversary visits to the Mt Washington Hotel's dining room has never disappointed!
Beautiful venue. Excellent food and service. A quiet night, but enjoyed the piano music throughout the dinner. Beef tenderloin and shrimp, special salad and seafood chowder were all excellent. Sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream for dessert was decadent.
Outstanding bar choices and unbelievable food-locally sourced and as delicious as it gets. Wait staff is very knowledgeable and helpful with the menu.
Lovely night. Wonderful server, food and singer to add to ambience. Desserts not so good.
Music was lame, guy on keyboard who looked bored and could not sing. The dining room is elegant, the food is expensive, the music should be more sophisticated, jazz or classical. The food looks nice, but is just not that great. Both my girlfriend and I woke up with diareah next morning after eating the food.
A wonderful restaurant that provides amazing, delicious meals with absolutely wonderful and courteous service. The dining room is gorgeous, the chairs comfortable, and the view spectacular. However, the live "entertainment" was off putting. I hate to denigrate a performer, but his singing was lounge quality at best and detracted from the mood of the evening. Classical music, either live or recorded would've been much more appropriate than awful covers of Paul Simon's "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard" and other pop songs. Oddly enough the sparse music during the breakfast buffet was more elegantly themed. I'll gladly return but with hopes for better music.
Food was good service was slow but we weren’t in a hurry. All in all a good not great experience
Menu should have more options. If staying here awhile the choices are limited. Service is good but slow. Ambiance great. Piano music nice
First round of $46 filets - 4 orders over cooked. Second round- 3 orders raw. We left without 4 of the 8 eating. Terrible.
Food is unimaginative and a bit pricey, but the Omni Mt. Washington Resort is a captive audience. Our server was friendly, but his demeanor bordered on inappropriate - excessive use of the word "stupid," an overreaching level of familiarity with the members of our table, etc. Overall would not recommend. The main dining room is also rather lacking in ambiance.
Wait staff and food in the main dining room was spectacular. Well done!
The small bar next to the main dining room was the only disappointment, dirty glasses, stick bar top and dirty tables. The bartender MUST go. He was very unprofessional, to the point that I would avoid the upstairs bar.
Beautiful dining room. They were playing Christmas music on the piano and our little girls (ages 10, 3,and 1) were able to dance and sing... the food was not worth the price and most of our meals where delivered cold. The short ribs – very fatty and steaks were not amazing. Stickney’s is a better value... but the experience was worth the hefty price. We love the Mount Washington Resort during the holidays!
The prime rib was way over charbroiled and the shrimp smelled fishy and were soggy. They offered free dessert, but those were stale. Not too impressed for a $200 meal!!!
Our waiter, Kyle from Bangor ME, was particularly solicitous and enjoyable. He made our evening celebration seem like a family affair and a royal occasion all at the same time. We have decided to make this an annual event! Cudos to your staff!
The surroundings were great, but the food and service were a disappointment. The painstakingly preserved hotel at the foot of Mt Washington affords great views and has a beautiful exterior. This restaurant, the hotel's main dining room, has a very limited menu. The food is mediocre at best - it appears they are trying to be locavore and nouveau, but don't have their hearts in it. It's a huge dining room, and the waitresses must walk miles each day, but service should be uppermost in the management's goals with pries double what one usually sees. All in all, a very disappointing experience.
Ok guests was mid November with snow on the ground and they still hadvthe summer menu, boiled lobster...come on
Second the good was mediocre at best, kind of like grade b hotel food from 1970
The chef must be tired but for the prices , 47$ for an entree, it wasnt nearly worth it
They need to ramp it up...
Carefully crafted and beautiful looking entrees of salmon salad and bay scallops-- both cooked perfectly. Our server was great and very attentive to our dietary needs of gluten free and nut allergies.
My family and I had an outstanding meal that we were so impressed with. The tenderloin melted in my mouth and the plate in it's entirety was remarkable from the vegetables to the augratin potatoes. The bread basket was very unique with an errant of breads, crackers, spreads, and olives. We also enjoyed the live music with was the perfect noise level. A wonderful experience from beginning to end.
Limited menu, bread that was brought to the table was stale. The desert was a stale brownie with ice cream. Not good, and not original. I felt like I was dining on a cruise, or I was at a wedding reception. The table setup was awkward. Expected more from this establishment. Would not recommend, will not go back.
Dinner was good not great. Service was okay as Our wait staff disappeared. Would give another try.
We had a wonderful experience from start to finish. All the food was wonderful, especially the tuna appetizer and the beef tenderloin &grilled shrimp entrée was amazing. The service was excellent, and the pace was spot on-relaxed and enjoyable but not slow. Our waiter (whose name is wish I could remember) was phenomenal.
Simply stated main dining room is resting on the legacy of a historic hotel. The food was bland, dated and overpriced. My lobster boil, the most expensive item on the menu was under seasoned and uninteresting. I would expect to find the same dish of similar quality at a road side sea food shack for a third the price. Much of the same could be said for my wife's choice a rib-eye - her questioning expression of "this is it" said it all. Ending the night we had luke warm watery coffee and a "deconstructed" apple pie which was inedible, cold hard apples served under a gelatinous crust.
Come on NH for a $225 dinner you can do better
My wife had the tenderloin and I had the scallops, the blend of surf and turf was delicious. The waiter was great and the music was just right.
