Entree cost are pricey but understandable. Food is really good, fresh and locally sourced.
$16.00 for the dinner salad was a little out of line in my opinion. Great experience, will be back!

What an experience! The food, service, ambiance, everything was exceptional. Our shared Porterhouse steak was the best I have ever had. It was prepared perfectly and was melt in your mouth tender. We also enjoyed the rich creamed corn and the tasty twice baked potato. This was a first class meal in a beautiful, quiet, romantic setting.

-Steaks and scalloped potatoes were undercooked (had to send back) and not flavorful compared to other restaurants we have frequented.
-We ordered popovers for appetizers and did not receive till after dinner was served. They were comped, thank goodness, as they were not very good anyway.
-We do not mind paying over two hundred dollars for a meal, unless it was a disappointing experience such as this.

This is the 4th time we have been here and each time just love it. The service is excellent no matter who you have to wait on you. I tried a Gin specialty drink and ended up having 2. I had the filet and my husband had the prime rib. Both cooked just right per our requests. We split a Wedge Salad and it was just the right amount. The only thing I was disappointed in was the desert. Peanut butter, chocolate etc., not much to it. Its pricey, so you might need to reserve for a special occasion.

Sitting in the room directly to the left upon entrance was not anything like sitting in a both close to the bar. It’s such special food, that you want your table to match. We had people going by us continually and it was not comforting. Our server needs to learn when to approach a table and when to leave. There were a couple awkward moments when she was wanting to talk longer where we weren’t interested. We were there to talk with our friends.

Had an excellent evening (as always) at The Ranch. Kenter Canyon Organic Mixed green salad was perfect as was BLT wedge salad. The massive Aspen Ridge New York steaks are cooked to perfection and accompanied by delicious Sweet​ Potatoes, Blue Cheese, Arugula and House-Made Pancetta. Would have loved to try the deserts but we were too full. We’ll be back!

As always the beet salad is the best I've eaten and that night my Prime Rib was superb. I order it because the au gratin potatoes melt in my mouth and are in variably poached by everyone at the table. The pecan pie and vanilla bean ice cream will always be my 'go-to' dessert as its subtlety complemented my double espresso. Since I brought the wine (2006 BV Tapestry), I can say that the wait person 'saved' the day by extracting a somewhat crumbling cork expertly. I find the experience to be one I will look forward to repeating in the near future. Bravo!

My wife and I dined here while visiting the area for a few days. With a reservation in the books, we showed up 5 minutes early but had to wait almost 30 minutes before being seated. We are big foodies from Seattle and know high quality restaurants when we see them, but I have to say that with the poor service, the mind-bogglingly high price points, yet middle-of-the-road quality of food, we were super disappointed. Our server was incredibly dismissive and ignored us for several long stretches. By the time our entrees showed up, we had been in the restaurant for an hour and a half. The steaks we had were so encrusted with salt that I had to scrape much of it off, as it took away from the steak’s flavor profile. We paid a huge bill and got out of there as fast as we could. Wish we had dined elsewhere.

W-a-a-a-a-y too loud. The ambient noise should be quieted somehow. It's hard to hear the waiter.

No one wants to dine in a tomb; or a bowling alley, either.

Food and service were excellent. It was louder than usual for a Saturday night due to a convention in town. Our server graciously apologized for the abnormal noise level. Local, fresh ingredients, perfectly cooked Delmonico steak, and romantic atmosphere.
