We love The Turquoise Room and have dined here on our cross country trips four years in a row. We always stay at La Pousada, the inn that has this fabulous restaurant. The food is eclectic New Mexican Southwestern. Lots of green chili, and native meats like quail, elk and bison. There are less interesting items on the menu for those who may be less adventurous. The fried zucchini blossoms are a must. The entrees can be split for a minor charge of $5. This will leave room for dessert. One of the best dining experiences ever.

We drove from Phoenix to Winslow for my birthday weekend to enjoy the delicious food at The Turquoise Room. We enjoyed three delicious meals there. For breakfast, try the chilaquiles! They are the best any where!! Made with eggs, shredded beef machaca, corn salsa, cream and tortilla chips, it is a large portion, but I ate every bite. My husband had the Green Chile Eggs -- polenta, tomatillo sauce, eggs and jalapeño jack cheese. Perfection For lunch, you must try the Signature Soup! It's as beautiful as it is delicious! It is half black bean soup and half cream of corn. The corn tastes like it was picked yesterday! It is served with corn bread with agave syrup -- so good that I could have licked the plate ;) For dinner I enjoyed the Bison Short Ribs, which were so tender that they fell off of the bone. The blackberry barbecue sauce was the perfect combination of sweet and heat. The vegetables were fresh and tender. My husband tried the Lamb Sampler Platter: red corn posole with lamb chorizo, a grilled lamb chop, and a sweet corn tamale. It was all excellent and too difficult to pick a favorite. Unfortunately, were too full to try a dessert. Can't wait for next time!

La Posada is a stunning historical hotel. The Turquoise Room is a suitable restaurant for such a beautiful place. The service is beyond reproach and the menu leaves you speechless trying to decide what to choose. I always get the squash blossom appetizer. I would go there just for that.

This us an exceptional dinning experience. The hotel is very interesting and has interesting art displays. The bar was inviting and the bar keepers were friendly and helpful. The waiter was a real professional. He was energetic and was able to explain the dishes to perfection. The food is fantastic. It is unusual and all four of us had different dishes and all were delicious. Check out the menu on line! We all had different deserts and they were perfect. I cannot say enough about this dinning experience. It was great and we look forward to stopping here next time we travel this way. I suggest staying here as the hotel is charming and you can dine, sleep, then enjoy a delicious breakfast for a real treat.

Excellent service and first rate food served in an attractive dining room within the La Posada Hotel. Really appreciated the availability of vegan options and excellent cocktail list. Older clientele many of whom seem to be return visitors. Great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Prices are reasonable especially given the quality of ingredients (many of which are locally sourced) and presentation. Worth the drive.

We are both dinner and breakfast at the Turquoise Room while staying at La Posada in Winslow, while on a road trip. Both meals were lovely, but dinner was a standout meal! We took the waitress’ recommendation on both the squash blossoms and the salmon dish and both were outstanding. The shrimp paparadelle was great as well. Some of the best food we’ve had. And the service Fromm Joni was outstanding as well.

The hotel is very historic and interesting, so come about 1/2 hour to 45 mins early to learn about Fred Harvey, the Harvey Girls, and La Posada. The restaurant is beautiful, the food wonderful, and the service impeccable. I had the Squash Blossom appetizer and my wife had the "special of the day", a tomato salad. Both were wonderful. She had Elk for main. It was as good as she has ever had. I had the pasta with shrimp...an odd choice for an "out west" restaurant, but it did have western flavors. Delicious! Better yet...spend the night at this historic place...have dinner AND breakfast here (we did), and while here, walk two blocks to the "corner in Winslow, Arizona" for a photo op. Two historic things within in two blocks, and two great meals...you can't go wrong!

We always enjoy an evening at the Turquoise Room, and this time was no exception. In fact, the dinner menu has been greatly expanded, and both my husband and I had a difficult time deciding between the various entrees. What a wonderful problem! We started with the stuffed squash blossoms, which were incredible; truly. If they are offered, they should definitely be taken. From there my husband had their signature soup, and I had their salad with blue cheese -- again, fabulous. The steak and chicken entrees were wonderful. I am running out of superlative adjectives! Unfortunately, we had no room left for dessert, which looked wonderful. So -- next time!

We always enjoy reaching La Posada and the Turquoise Room in the middle of a long drive. Well earned respite from the road, very atmospheric, unusual, historic and of course the Amtrak train stops right here appealing to the inner Little Boy (or Girl) in all of us. The gardens are very interesting and some spaces had been improved since our last visit in April. Outdoor space is lovely.
I suggest the restaurant add terrace dining in the warm months. Outdoor heaters and coolers , as well as covers/blinds expand how long they could be used

We drove from Prescott and loved pulling into the parking lot of the LaPosada. Our 3 grandkids wondered where we were taking them before we got there. You could tell they were very impressed as we entered the patio and then into the resort itself.

The food was outstanding as had been described to us by Dierdre Higgens who had stayed there previously.
Our waiter very attentive and helpful. We are still describing the signature soup and tamales. It is making my mouth water just to talk about it. I had the ribs that melted in my mouth and everyone else enjoyed their food as well.

I would like to come back with someone who would like to stay overnight and just relax.

I stay at the hotel often and never miss a dinner at the Turquoise Room. From front staff to a Harvey girl, April is awesome, the seasonally changing menu has something for everyone. Not to mention a selection of wines to compliment the dinner. And I have gotten a dinner to go and taken it outside. Not for everyone but was fun.
