Absolutely fabulous. Beautiful setting. You are in the weather on the terrace, and they are prepared for that. The only negative was that there were so many people there. We took our time. Our dinner lasted 2 hours. 2 weddings wrapped up during dinner. The scenery, even in the fog, was spectacular. We'll be back.

Our server was very pleasant, but we had to ask at least twice for coffee at the end of the meal. And our bottle of wine did not find its way into a chiller until there was just a sip left.
Also, PLEASE ditch the Impossible Burger. One can find that at Burger King! Bring back the black bean and beet burger!!

Nice but the biscuits were hard and cold. My whipped potatoes tasted as if they were from a box ( instant potatoes). My husband said the Brussels sprouts and roasted mushrooms were ok, but his order was wrong in the beginning. The start of my steak was perfect, the end, which we took with us and ate later, had lots of gristle in the meat.

We had the lamb and elk. The lamb was way too salty, over-flavored and tough. The elk, although tender, also had too much salt. We spent too much money for the quality of food.

Parking for handicap should be free since there is no handicap up close and to stay close requires valet parking for $15 plus tip.

You’re definitely paying for the atmosphere. The food is over-priced and mediocre at best. They also try to rush the meal in hopes of filling your seat as many times as possible. I understand it’s a business and they have a popular spot, but the food and service leave much to be desired. Overall though, the view was spectacular.

Service by Brad W. was slow. Meals extremely overpriced. For $38, no sides included, a couple of us got Chilean Sea Bass (about 4 ounces). A couple got scallops (3) for $38. We sat on the terrace which has inadequate outdoors heaters. The wind was blowing and it was cold.Overall not worth it, but the view was great. My wife got a Grey Goose martini in the bar area before dinner for $18.

Thank you for joining us. This is not the guest experience we aim to deliver and apologize for the lack of promptness. We will use your feedback as an opportunity to better our operation, and may we recommend any of our three indoor signature restaurants upon your next visit; Sunset Terrace is an outdoor dining venue, and we encourage all guests to please dress according to the weather.

Beautiful sunset, but the food was horrible. Our steak was cold and had 2 pieces of long hair on it. It made me so sick and I couldn’t eat my food. I would go back and only have drinks. Not worth the price at all.

Since a friend thought enough of the Omni Grove Park to recommend it to me, I feel I have to pass on the favor. It was a great experience for our vacation "splurge". Our waitress was wonderful, the food terrific and the views outstanding. And it was very comfortable for an outside area. The ceiling heaters were a pleasant surprise for a cool evening.

My wife and I were on a birthday trip to Grove Park Inn in Asheville NC. We chose the Sunset for our celebration dinner and could have not been more pleased. We were seated immediately on the terrace that offered a great direct Mountain View. The wait staff was courteous and attentive. Chelsea,our waitress, was great and answered all our questions. The food was delivered quickly and was excellent. The Cesar salad was the best we have ever eaten. Chelsea also brought us a special courtesy birthday dessert. Bottom line is that the Sunset Terrace is an outstanding choice for a special dinner while in Asheville.

The elk was amazing. I think our server was short-staffed so that reflected in the long wait time for drinks but use did her best. Aside from that, great food!

My kids and I were a bit disappointed in the food.
We all had the chicken and it was dry and the broccolini tough. We also thought some other accompaniment like figs or cranberry.
Very bland and very expensive.

Thank you for reaching out, and we apologize that the chicken was not to your liking. Sunset Terrace offers an extensive list of award-winning wines, hand-cut steaks and regional favorites on the menu, and we hope you will choose to return, to sample a meal more appealing to your palates.

We had a great table on the edge of the patio and enjoyed watching the sunset and exploring the property. I do have to say it is somewhat overpriced. Waiter was very good, food was above average but not amazing. You’re definitely paying for the location and view.

Rudeness abounded~ service was horrid snd actually asked for new waiter- a first for me. Paid 41$ for a glass of wine and a crummy bloody Mary (no mix just tomato juice)! Lovely place, just REALLY BAD service and value TOTALLY OVERRATED and NOT worth it. Food was decent - bit I won't ho there again ~ Too many good casual or fine dining restaurants in this foodie town!

Thank you for dining at Sunset Terrace. We genuinely appreciate that you found both the service and food "first class." For those guests who are not interested in dining outdoors, The Omni Grove Park Inn offers three indoor signature restaurants with equally superior panoramic mountain views and culinary delights. We look forward to welcoming you back at any one of these in the future.

The hotel is beautiful and the food was good. We could not get a reservation until 9 pm because the restaurant was very busy. That would have been okay but since we were the last reservation we felt like we were being rushed to eat and leave. Overall we felt that the service was lacking and that impacted our evening. The food was good but not spectacular. You pay for the view. Try to get a reservation as far in advance as possible to avoid feeling rushed.

Everything was great just really expensive...I didnt feel that my dinner was worth $200 for 2 people. I wouldn't complain about a $100 bill but $200 is excessive. It was a nice date night but we probably wouldn't come back
