Steakhouse
Sun Valley’s original restaurant, The Ram has been warming and welcoming diners since 1937. This rustic-yet-elegant dinner house has been recently modernized, while still preserving its historic charm. Pianist Larry Harshbarger brings a classic ambiance to the room with gentle melodies played on our resident baby grand piano. Travel back in time with the nightly “Heritage Menu”—a series of historic dishes such as pork tenderloin schnitzel, Hungarian goulash, and the famous Ram fondue—resurrected from the restaurant’s long and storied culinary tradition.

A credit card is required to hold your reservation. Should your plans change, please let us know at least 24 hours in advance. Last minute cancellations and no shows may be charged $25 per person.

    Old style elegance in a low key setting. Some folks dressed up but most were close to business casual with a little ski resort style. Service was impeccable including when the greeter misunderstood us when we asked to not sit by the door. After they realized we were not complaining they were beyond gracious. The sommelier was a pleasure even tasting and admiring the wine we brought with us. An old style piano player was marvelous background. We asked to interchange vegetables and the chef converted it in to a delightful presentation. We enjoyed the trout, beef tenderloin, sea scallops and a ceviche appetizer. Both the chocolate and sticky pudding desserts were top notch. It was a surprisingly excellent meal and I would highly recommend them.

    We were expecting much more from The Ram. Service wasn't good and left much to be desired. Overall the food was just ok and definitely not worth the price. We had much better service and food for 1/3 the cost at several restaurants in Sun Valley. Disappointing to say the least.

    We had our third fantastic experience in three weeks! Nicole, our favorite server, paced things artfully and was such fun to talk with. Buddy came by the table to visit several times and also helped us choose a wine for dinner. The food was spectacular (as always) and we enjoyed listening to Larry play (as always!). The evening was made even more special as Michael was in for awhile and stopped by our table to say hello (by name---how does he remember everyone???!).

    The Ram offers a warm, enjoyable atmosphere complete with a friendly pianist. The interesting menu is very well executed and the staff, from management to kitchen to servers do not disappoint. Make your reservations in advance as locals and visitors alike agree it is among the best dining in the Valley!

    The first courses were excellent. We had fondue and steak tartare. Some liked the Farm salad, others found it boring. The main courses - pork chop & beef - were disappointing. The grits (side dish on the main) were awful.

    This was a special dinner for me and my kids- (21 and 24). The waitress was great. However, the meal was rushed and a check was left for us before we even could ask for dessert- which we were planning on having. For the price, you shouldn't be rushed. Even during the holidays.

    Perhaps one of the best overall meals we've had - and we've had a lot. The Ram is top notch without being overly stuffy or pretentious. In a way it felt similar to downstairs at the 21 Club in NYC. Plan on spending a bit, but take your time, enjoy the ambience, and you'll have an evening to remember. The Ram is a small restaurant - you can see the whole thing from any table, which gives it an intimate feel; take some time to look around and just absorb the history. Food-wise, we had the duck, the heritage mixed grill, and the pork chop along with the foie gras mousse for appetizer and the dulce de leche for dessert. Everything was perfect.

    Excellent food, service, and ambiance. The food was spectacular—from cocktails to appetizers (foie gras was such a hit!), main courses were delicious. The pianist was lovely playing holiday hits all night long—just the right volume. Service was delightful. Such a treat! Our third time here and it’s good as ever.

    No trip to the Sun Valley Resort is complete without a visit to the Ram Restaurant. The ambiance is something one might find in the Austrian Alps with some food elements to match but the chef and staff take it to another level. Pro tip: Try the nightly "heritage" specials which harken back to classic Sun Valley menus from the past. My favorite is the Goulash which is featured on Saturday nights. These

    Oh my! We have been to The Ram many, many times and always have had a great experience but last night was extraordinary! First, our waiter Ken was excellent; he was professional, friendly, and paced our meal beautifully. Second, the new chef has taken the food to a new level--absolutely outstanding! Third, Michael helped us select a pinot noir that may now be our new favorite. And finally, we met the new manager, Buddy, and found him to be great--professional, extremely qualified, and very personable. Wow. What a special evening.

    The corn bisque to start was lukewarm at best and did not resemble or taste like corn at all. Very weird “soup” and disappointing because I love corn! The wagyu New York steak was to die for. Ambience had a family night feeling, that isn’t bad, but not what I recall; I remember a more sophisticated Euro atmosphere. The limoncello, we were told, was from the freezer; it was not but it should be! Overall it was fine but not great.
