The dining room has very good food, however service can be very,very slow ,along with a long wait(the don't take reservations) on busy days. Avoid the time just after the train arrives to reduce wait(11:30 about) There is a canyon view through windows on the north side.

It is difficult to rate the El Tovar Dining Room. It is by far the nicest restaurant facility at the Grand Canyon and the service is good and friendly. We went there for dinner the 3 nights we stayed at the Grand Canyon. Don't forget to reserve well in advance if you want to be sure to have a table.... More

We had Thanksgiving dinner in the El Tovar and it was excellent. The service was great: friendly and quick. The food was excellent and we truly stuffed ourselves for the holiday meal.

The service is great, places is clean, food selection can accommodate anyone. I'm happy vegatarian, vegan options are available. I ate the stuffed portobello mushroom, rice, and spinach, it was AWESOME! Alcohol selection is available for those who drink. I drank lots water and herbal tea. The dessert menu was not for me with too much sugar, eggs, and butter.

The wonderful El Tovar Lodge Dining Room was thronged on Thanksgiving, but they had seen all this kind of thing before and had a good system in place. At 1:30 we put our name in and were told it could be more than a 90 minute wait, which gave us time to walk up and down the rim trail with... More

And possibly the best eggs benedict (with honey smoked salmon) I've ever had + cornmeal pancakes. Yum. Not cheap but so worth it.

We had a family group of seven and everyone was very happy with their selections. We had veal,duck, lamb shank and chicken pasta and everything including dessert was very good. The server made the experience even better. One of the best we've had and we go out a lot. Wish I remembered his name maybe Rick or Richard anyway such... More

The history of the place is awesome. The dining room is spectacular. It may be worth just grabbing a drink at the bar and walking around to explore the hotel. The service was also amazing. Our server was very knowledgeable and personable. I most likely wouldn't come back to El Tovar for the food. It was average at best.

There were many nice tables, but the hostess tried to seat in a back side room in the corner- no thank you. We had a bit of a hassle moving tables, but with our reservation made 4 weeks prior, why should we settle of a poorly small located table. The employees had a snotty attitude, but the room was so...
