We both the pan seared Haddock special. Previously frozen "fishy" tasting fish. It was overcooked and dry. Augrutin potatoes were overcooked and dry. We could have had a better meal at half the price in just about every restaurant in our home town of Plymouth MA. Service and ambiance were good.

In spite the outstanding view of Mount Washington and the old-world charm of the dining room, the food was SO bad that I can no longer recommend this restaurant. My husband and I have eaten here for years and--in the past--we always considered our meals to be adequate but unmemorable, yet the splendor of the setting more than compensated.

This time. however, our dinners were inedible. My husband's chicken marsala (the special) was so dry that he could barely cut the meat, and the pasta seemed as if it had been left over from another evening and then microwaved. My salmon was okay but it didn't come with the extras described on the menu. Instead, it showed up surrounded by sliced baby potatoes. Being on a carb-free diet, I had specifically ordered an entree that wasn't accompanied by potatoes but I got them anyway, and they were so under-cooked that my husband refused them, even though he's usually a potato-lover. Our side salads were limp and swimming in dressing. My husband's salad included walnuts which he said tasted rancid.

Our waiter was excellent and I was sorry that we couldn't be more enthused about our evening for his sake. Apparently he reported our dissatisfaction because later, when we were up in our room and settling in for an early sleep (we'd been hiking all day), a manager called and offered to send up "a chocolate sampler." Well, the last thing I want at bedtime is chocolate, and so I refused. And even though it's impossible to imagine that a chocolate dessert could be ruined, given the meal that we'd just had, I wasn't optimistic.

My husband and I drove out to the Mount Washington Hotel and Resort on a whim. We dined in the main dinning room which was a beautiful room in itself. I knew this was going to be a great experience though when we were asked two questions. 1) Any dietary needs? and 2) Are you celebrating anything? I have never been to any restaurant and been asked those questions. I am lactose intolerant and they took that very seriously and made everything without dairy. The food was amazing, our waitress was super nice, our water glasses were constantly filled with ice water, the pianist was wonderful, and the views were breathtaking. Our waitress asked if we were staying at the hotel and we told her no because we only live about 90 minutes away and this was just a last minute road trip to go someplace we had never been before. We were encouraged to explore the grounds and take in the beautiful sunset views. I would definitely recommend family and friends. This was likely a one time experience for us as the restaurant is pricey for us; however we're both looking at big career promotions within the next eight to twelve months. If all goes as planned we might go again as it was just an amazing time! Thank you Mount Washington Hotel and Resort for a wonderful experience while we dined.

Although the Mountain is views are outstanding, the food was not. We’re not sure why we decided to eat here again, because we’ve been disappointed every time. The Lack of attention to preparation and lack of quality control getting to the table were two major issues just to start. The polenta luke warm and it was dry, and the ratatouille surrounding it had a red sauce that looked like it had been sitting, waiting to bring to the table for a while. The cut of meat for the short ribs was poor at best. The dish also came with a potato chive pancake, which disappeared due to the preparation of the dish. It was all meat and mostly VERY fatty meat.
We also had an order of salmon with french fries, but unfortunately it came out over mashed potatoes. It went back to the kitchen and it took them 20 minutes to fix the order. Most of us were halfway through our meal before it came out. Stickney’s is a much better choice and value, if you’re going to eat at the hotel. But the problem with Stickney’s is that the menu hasn’t changed in at least five years.

There was a really good piano player, but a family of kids were running around the dining room making so much noise and nobody would ask the parents to control them. The noise level was way to high for a romantic dinner setting. Way to expensive for the atmosphere.

A delightful dinner in the Main Dining Room. Lovely to have white table cloths and piano music. The wait staff are excellent, and particularly well supported by those busing tables, serving bread, and keeping water full. The teamwork yields a high attention to detail, which is so rare to see these days. All of that supports very good food indeed, but it the total experience that makes this special. Add the view of the mountains and you have every reason to dine here.

We stayed at the Mount Washington Hotel for our anniversary and decided to have dinner at the main dining room. The views are gorgeous and the dining room setup itself is stunning. Unfortunately, the ambiance and service were challenging. The dining room has a band that plays during dinner, and they were quite loud. It was hard to have a conversation except when the band took a break. It would have been ok had the band been somewhat good, but the singing left much to be desired. The service was very slow, with little updates as to progress. On the plus side, the food was quite good and the staff were very knowledgeable and accommodating to the food allergies in our party.

The food and views saved the day. Being a special occasion, we did not let the service and ambiance distract us from our celebration.

It was a Wednesday night and the dining room was about a quarter full when we arrived. There was an empty small table for two near the large windows overlooking the green. I asked for that table and was told that the server who's section that was had just been seated a two tables, one of which was a table for 10. I've been a server and I've been a bartender...at what point is that the customer's issue? The host got the manager and after some discussions, they seated us with the excuse that they hope I'm not in a hurry...wth? The server was very nice but clearly overwhelmed. We were not in a hurry but service was super sloooooowwww. Arrival at 7:15 and left at 9:30. The food was good but not outstanding. The meals are in the upper $20 to mid to upper $30s. My husband had the scallops and said it was very good, I had the salmon and that was also good. For dessert, we opted for the Apple Baklava. Don't bother...it was served cold and the phyllo was mushy and soggy. Not a great way to end the meal. The ambiance at Mt Washington resort is lovely. The grounds are well kept and the mountain vistas are breathtaking. If you get a chance, have a drink on the lovely veranda and just sit, talk or just take in the view.

We were here for our 25th wedding anniversary. We had spent our honeymoon here and had really enjoyed it. This time was not a pleasant experience. We were there for over two and a quarter hours. The appetizer was good and came out in a reasonable time. Then we waited over an hour to receive our entree’s after placing our orders and both meals were cold and had to be sent back. The food wasn’t worth the wait (or price) even after being reheated (microwaved). To their credit I have to say that they did give us a 15% discount on the bill. We would have much preferred an enjoyable evening.

For such an elegant space and excellent service the ambiance was too loud and the food unexpectaly underwhelming for the romantic aniversary dinner we hoped to have.
As an example the guitar musician was too loud for the room. At one point he played "If Your Happy And You Know It" and there were several children and family members out on the dance floor singing and dancing along. While this was not typical of the entire evening, it still hit a sour note.
The food was good without being special. For a nightly or weekly menu our meals of lobster ravioli and roasted palenta were fine but uninspired.
The service however was exceptional. We asked to bring home the remainder of a meal and it was accidentally throw out. To recompense they recreated a partial meal for us to bring home. Outstanding.
The main dining room's ambiance and style should match its unparalleled setting, history of elegance, and its price point. Other restaurants in the resort can be more relaxed and casual. This room deserves to continue to be the fine dining experience it was build to house over 100 years ago.

We came to the Omni on vacation and had dinner here on our first night. The dining room is old world beautiful and nice ambiance. We were a bit disappointed that the window seating was only for parties of 2 (we were with our daughter). We enjoyed the live music and the food was delicious. Everything was cooked to perfection (seared Ahi tuna , salmon perfectly done/ not overdone). Desert was amazing. My husband chose the winner: sticky toffee cake in a decadent bourbon sauce. The service was good but not as attentive as we would have expected; our water glass was only filled once and it was only after desert was over. I would recommend this restaurant if coming to Mount Washington or for a special occasion.

I love this hotel and come every year. The quality of food in the Main Dining Room was very disappointing for dinner and we also experienced a reduced quality at breakfast.
Dinner the chicken and salmon was dry with very little flavor. The salad was not edible due to the greens not being fresh and dressing was sour.
At breakfast two mornings in a row I attempted to get eggs and the poached eggs were not cooked and the eggs over easy was loaded with oil and not edible. It is safer to stay with the omelets. Scrambled eggs were tasteless but the blueberries were very fresh. I always prefer to not leave the resort for dinner and hope there will be an improvement when I return in October. This is an amazing resort and the Main Dining Room did not live up to the quality of the hotel and staff this trip.

My husband and I decided to drive up to the Mt. Washington Hotel recently, on the spur of the moment. We were able to secure a dinner reservation and we drove up in time to check out the golf facilities, and also have a drink at the lovely patio/bar by the 18th hole. We were the first diners to arrive at the Main Dining Room, however it wasn’t long before the restaurant was moderately busy. The food and service were excellent and we greatly enjoyed our window table where we were able watch all the “goings on” along the porch, the lawn area, and the Presidental Wing/conference center, where there was a buffet dinner being held on the patio. There was a live, 3 piece jazz ensemble playing during dinner and they were excellent! We will definitely dine here again!! Note; you do not need to be a hotel guest to enjoy the restaurants, the golf, or a stroll around the beautiful grounds.
