The noise level was oppressive, and there weren't any exceptional things about the meal to make up it. We will not go again.

We fortunately had been there on a busy but not too busy night as our flight was diverted making us an hour late for dinner. We kept them updated and they held out table.

Food was amazing! I loved the delicious bread and salad. The trout was fabulous.

I’ve had many exceptional meals at The Ram over the years. I brought a friend who had been going to Sun Valley for ‘40’ years and never had dinner there, the foolish boy! He drooled over the lamb shank and I had the black cod dish - preceded by a crab cake and beet salad starters..all exquisite!! Thanks to Deborah for taking care of us and Larry for his skill on the Ivories!!

What a perfect setting for a birthday celebration! We had a corner booth for six so it was easy to have conversations and yet listen to the pianist in the middle of the room. He even played many of our favorite songs and Happy Birthday too! Our waitress was very kind and helpful in our decisions about wine and dinner entrees. Everyone was very happy with their salad choices and especially liked the roasted butternut ravioli and the Rocky Mountain Lamb Shank. Thanks for a very nice evening!

One of the great recipes from many years ago is the goulash. Saturday night along with a fresh salad and some nice red wine is one great evening at Sun Valley's oldest restaurant. Wonderful service from reception to departure and everything in between.

Was totally bummed by the very weak service and the average food. The wait staff brought out our dinner while we were still finishing our apps, our server was not helpful at all when asked to modify a fish entree, said the sauce couldn't be left off? When asked what sides are available the answer was there are no sides only what comes with each of the main dishes, it was just bizarre. I ended up ordering the artisan romaine salad as a main, description included pepitas and golden raisins, there were literally 5 pepitas and zero golden raisins and so much dressing I couldn't eat it. Our server was just so unapproachable that I didn't want to send it back. My fault for not speaking up but was just so frustrated that I couldn't get out of there fast enough. I won't be back on my next visit to sun valley lodge

What is particularly nice about the Ram is the piano accompaniment to dinner featuring numbers from Sun Valley Serenade and classic Broadway musicals. Add to that the daily special nostalgic entree from the 1940's. Tuesday night features a very nice lamb mixed grill with 2 chops and sausage with a demi glace sauce -- very nice!

Love this place. Food is great, ambience can be iffy because they host a lot of conferences and the restaurant can fill with some self important, discourteous attendees. Service is very good though our server forgot it was my wife’s birthday...

Well to start out it wasn't crowded and no one came to our table for almost 10 minutes- which represents the poor mark for service. The food was between fair and good so I gave it a good, as I've eaten here before and had better food and service. This is not an inexpensive restaurant and whomever is managing it should get more involved. Overall, I was disappointed as I expected better and my expectations were not met by a long shot. Sun Valley's restaurants are usually much better than this experience. I hope this was an anomaly of simply one bad night for them.

My not yet wife and I first dined at the Ram 43 years ago. We became "regulars" in 1998. Great food, great service, great wine list and great piano with Larry are what everyone needs for a perfect evening.

I have been to the Ram several times. In my view it has very much gone down hill over the past many years. This past experience started with waiting in the lounge for over 30 minutes before a cocktail waitress even noticed us. The food was mediocre at best to include two flavorless fish dishes and an overcooked steak. The wait staff was excellent. There are better choices in Sun Kalley/Ketchum. It is too bad, the resort really does need a proper high end dining option.

Overall a really great restaurant. I was disappointed in the wait for our meal ( 1.5hrs) as there was a mix up with our order being put in. This was our second restaurant in Sun Valley to do this and there was not much in the attempt to comp anything for the wait. The server was great otherwise and there were some lovely carollers. I would certainly return again for a great cheese fondue.

While the atmosphere and food were excellent, the serving staff didn't quite seem to have their act together. The head waiter started to serve us and then pass it off to another staff member who was also training someone new. Seemed like they spent a lot of time together talking about things versus have a close eye on their customers. I got a bit annoyed how long it took for someone to clear our salad course dishes so finally moved them to the end of the table as a subtle hint. The staff was friendly but just need to step up their game before the busy winter season.
