Lake Yellowstone Hotel Dining Room Review

Opened in 1891, this double-colonnaded dining room off the lobby of the Lake Yellowstone Hotel is the park's most elegant place to dine. It's superior to the Old Faithful Inn in every way—the view, the service, the menu, and even the gorgeous china. Arrive early and enjoy a beverage in the airy Reamer Lounge. The dinner menu includes such attractive starters as an artisan cheese and dried fruit plate. Main courses include lamb, buffalo, steak, duck, quail, and fish dishes, as well as at least one imaginative vegetarian entrée. The wine list focuses on bottles from California, Oregon, and Washington. Reservations are not needed for breakfast or lunch, but are essential for dinner. Make them up to a year in advance with hotel reservations; otherwise, call a month ahead.

    I cannot see how this is Fodor's Choice

    These people have no idea what is Medium Rare! i ordered a Medium Rare prime rib and got one that looks pink but its dry, not blood running at all! so, i sent it back and got an fettucini alfredo. i can understand the use of dry pasta, BUT i cannot understand why some are stuck togather. and the flavor... my wife had the idaho trout, the stuffing was perfect but the fish is dry... overcooked. I am no longer in the cusine design business as my day job, my wife says my cooking is better than LAKE YELLOWSTONE HOTEL DINING ROOM that i raved about.

    Lake Yellowstone Hotel Dining Room Review

    Food is not bad, especially crabcakes , bison and wild salmon. But service is heterogeneous and if you've a table near a pilar, you can have chance to see the deserving tray with trah of the other tables for minutes and even for your whole diner...
