We went for dinner with a large group during the writer's conference. It was more than an hour between ordering and receiving our food. The food is okay, nothing special, and small portions. No good options for vegetarians. My 9yo daughter ordered a pasta dish...More

The food was incredible. The hardest part was deciding what to try each day. We only went for breakfasts and we loved everything we tried. The biscuits and gravy is delicious as are the pancakes and huevos rancheros. Compliments to the chef!

Beautiful surroundings -- sitting outside overlooking the famous ice rink. Had the Kale and Quinoa wrap which was really, really good. Food quality and ambiance were far above what I'd normally expect at a Resort.

I attended a meeting and we ate at Gretchen's. The staff was very attentive and prompt. The food was good and we were seated outside along the ice rink which allowed us to watch the ice skaters prepare for the evening show at Sun Valley.

The breakfasts at Gretchen's were the best I have had at any hotel anywhere. The offerings were varied with such beautifully prepared healthy options. My favorite was the egg white frittata with basil pesto, spinach, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Delicious breads, fresh fruit including grapefruit,...More

We took our family of four here for breakfast every day while at Sun Valley. Very tasty stuff. The kids really liked the pancakes with bacon on the side. You can get the pancakes plain or made with bananas. The pastrami hash was also great....More
