Sunset Terrace - Omni Grove Park Inn
Reservations are recommended.
Not a very good menu. But ambiance and scenery made it worthwhile
We had reservations on the Sunset Terrace for a late lunch and our waiter was sure to tell us that it was the end of lunch service.... wait- didn’t I make a reservation? The baked Brie we ordered was beyond melted- it was a a puddle of oil. The burger and crab cake sandwich were both really good though. The view and ambiance are amazing but the service was so disappointing.
Decided to visit the Grove Park Inn during their opening Christmas weekend. We were a bit worried about eating on the Sunset Terrace due to chilly temperatures. The restaurant called to ensure we wanted to keep the reservation but I was pleasantly surprised when they mentioned that they had heaters and blankets. Derrick was absolutely phenomenal! Some of the beet service we’ve both ever had. Derrick’s suggestions were right on point (wine, apps, and food!) and he made us feel extremely welcome and special on our anniversary. The food was divine and we’re already talking about when to come back in the spring!
Center cut filet was delicious!
Beautiful setting overlooking the property. The food and service were great!
Had a wonderful dinner on the terrace, kept warm by heaters above and the offer of blankets. Food is pricey but good as is the wine. We enjoyed the green salad, pork chop, and the tuna all grilled to order. Thanks to Diane for taking such good care of us.
Beautiful location and exquisite cuisine. Atmosphere somewhat diminished by the presence of a constant swarm of bees and wasps. One crash landed in my salad and died in the vinaigrette. Also a little noisy but not overly so for a busy outdoor venue. The hotel is stunning and worth a look.
Wonderful lunch experience with old friends from out of town! Sunny or not, always a beautiful view from the Terrace.
The view was spectacular. Chilly evening, but lots of unobtrusive heaters made the porch war and cozy. The wine list had plenty to choose from and bison steak was tender and delicious. We were lucky to be there at the peak of autumn color. I look forward to going back again.
Tables weren't cleared and reset. properly. We had to ask for silverware and napkins. Salad was fresh but lobster had no flavor - I was expecting "sweet" flavor.
The overall experience was great. The rib-eye, wedge salad, and lobster mac and cheese were excellent. The lobster tail was a little tough, and the seared tuna was good but not great. Overall, I would definitely recommend dining here as the view is truly special, and the food is very good; however, consider ordering steak rather than seafood.
So special that we had lunch on the terrace 2 days in a row.
I always come back to eat at the Sunset Terrace for the fabulous crab cakes and lobster macaroni, which I always comment "are the best I have ever eaten". However, this time I wouldn't say that! The view definitely topped the food this time.
View was amazing! The food was excellent. Loved all the fire places!
Had Dinner Saturday night Nov. 3rd. 17th Anniversary. The view was beautiful, and we enjoyed watching the sun go down behind the mountains. The food was enjoyable until the desert. My wife and I ordered the Crème Brulee and was very disappointed. It came in a bowl, had very little crust on it, and had peaches on top. Instead of vanilla custard, they used rice pudding. I don't mind chefs making some small changes to recipes to make them their own, but when you make this much of a change, you need to call it something else. If I had known it was going to be like this I would not have ordered it. The waiter was kind enough to take it off our bill. This will not stop me from going back again.
Most Beautiful lunch setting! Mountains and leaves at their peak! Food was delicious too!
Every attention to detail was taken are of....I made special requests for a friend ghat had never been to the GPI and she was so taken aback by the special requests honored. We had a delicious meal (as always) the Tuna appetizer and then Trout entree. Fresh Fresh Fresh.
We went here just to know this off our bucket list. This place is worth the trip for the view.....however, that is about it. The food was average at best and the cost is way too much and in my opinion not worth it. I would recommend going here for a coffee to enjoy the view..but would not recommend getting a second mortgage on your house to come here for dinner.
Weather A little cool..service slow..tables on left and front arrived after, served significantly before..waiter”your steaks “resting”..I’m watching now”?chop served modestly warm..great views..ambiance
BD, too highly priced. Not enough of heat on rainy cool nite.
It was a slightly rainy, chilly afternoon but the beauty of the fall leaves on the landscaping below helped take away the gloom of the day. The heat units above kept us warm enough. We both had a wonderful butternut soup, biscuits and then split one of the best pastrami sandwiches ever- so full, we couldn't eat a dinner that night!
Sunset Terrace Restaurant is located in the historic Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC. The view of mountains & fall foliage was spectacular during our visit. Our wait staff was very attentive to our needs. The food is basic with a good variety of options.
Food, service and atmosphere were fantastic
Fantastic view, but my vegan dinner was more of an appetizer, a sliced beet and a few carrots for $24. I thought the amaranth listed with the dish would provide the grain, but none was on my plate. When I asked the waiter, he said the cook must have forgot. He then brought me about a tablespoon of amaranth leaves.
Unbelievable food and unforgettable views! The Grove Park is a phenomenal hotel and spa but if you’re just visiting the area and want a great meal with cozy ambience, just go up there to look around, learn the history of the hotel and chill. It lends itself to that.
This place was everything and more than I’d expected. The restaurant setting is absolutely beautiful, the food excellent, our waiter was amazing. I just don’t have anything negative to say. 5 Stars!
We were lucky enough to have a fabulous sunset with our meal. Everyone in our party order a different dish and each were outstanding. We enjoyed salmon, ribeye, and filet mignon which were all perfectly cooked to our requests. We stayed several hours and enjoyed a couple of different bars as well. Edison has a draft cider that is the best we have experienced and we highly recommend. We are already planning to go back and stay in the hotel to enjoy the food, bars, and definitely the spa!
Wonderful experience for dinner on a beautiful fall evening. Our waiter was outstanding. Was one of the highlights of our trip.
What a beautiful terrace to eat, drink and watch the sunset. Very relaxing and a must to experience at least once.
Food was great but it is very over priced. Just as good of restaurants in Downtown Asheville. You are paying for the view and hotel.
Not only was the view breathtaking but the service and food was excellent too! My husband and I truly enjoy celebrating our sixth wedding anniversary here and cannot wait to come back.
The view was amazing and absolutely breathtaking. However, the food was just okay and really lacked flavor. Our server was okay as well; little awkward at times. It was my husband birthday and when I made the reservation I noted it was his birthday and I also called and said to make our experience extra special because it was his birthday. I was a little disappointed when nothing happened not even happy birthday to my husband. Overall sunset Terrace is a beautiful location but I think they have opportunities when it comes to service (customer experience) and food.
Everything was great!
The view cannot be beat. Friendly and highly competent service. The food is very fresh, tasty and presented well. You just can't be unhappy when you are at the Grove Park Inn.
Everything about the Sunset Terrace was perfect! The service was spot on and friendly. The food and wine were delicious. The view is truly AMAZING! Definitely a 5 star experience!
The manager Ty, and our server were spectacular. A wonderful anniversary experience and the food was amazing.
Amazing food and view. They had heaters that made it great even in the cold weather!! Best dinner we had in a long time!
What a beautiful view. It was a cloudy day so there wasn’t much of s Sunset but it was still a wonderful dinner. Brad our waiter was outstanding. The wine selection was great and we enjoyed the leisure dining experience. My husband had the filet mignon and said it was cooked to perfection and the butter sauce was a great compliment. They had heaters on the patio that made dining outside very comfortable.
