We had dinner and breakfast in the lodge dining room. Dinner was very good and the ambiance is incomparable. They gave us a window view of the canyon for breakfast. Something we will never forget.

We had a nice lunch at El Tovar restaurant.
We were seated near the fireplace on a chilly afternoon and it was great warming up near it.
I ordered the Traditional Navajo Taco and it was quite enjoyable.
Service was good and the ambiance in this charming older venue was great

Our stay at El Tovar was really pleasant. On our first night we decided to eat in the Dining Room. It was our one and only visit. The food was of a good enough standard but it was the staff who made the experience not as enjoyable as it should have been. In the title I state that the waiters fail to attain their own levels of pretension. To explain, our waiter was an impatient little man who treated us as if we were a pair of idiots. This was not as bad as one who we saw waiting on a Chinese family. He was openly rude to them as if he was doing them a great favour by condescending to put food in front of them.
The staff detracted so much from the enjoyment of the meal that we went out after that and had our meals in nearby places with down-to-earth waiting staff who were there for our benefit not their own.

Everything from the waitress to the food was super.
I would recommend this place to anyone.
Food was delicious and well prepared.
I had the prime rib sandwich and it was outstanding.
Don’t miss this place!

I had the fish special and hubby had veal shank. Both dishes so good! Dessert was so very good too. Wine wasn't very good. Waiter came across kind of snippy but I think he was trying to be funny.
