One of the things that made my dining experience so good was my server. Sadly, I don't remember her name, but she is from Bulgaria (I think). She checked back on me the right number of times, and since the weather was so nice I decided to have coffee outside. She said they didn't have the outside area open for... More

We ate here for breakfast a couple of times. It offered a nice selection of breakfast with local flavor such as locally sourced dates. The prices are comparable to the less elegant 49 Cafe.

We had come to Death Valley several times. This was the first time that we ever stopped at the Inn. We have been tent campers and, of recent, RV explorers. After a long day of driving, we arrived at Death Valley and decided to treat ourselves by going out for dinner. I had an excellent Belvedere, slightly dirty, vodka martini.... More

Very pleasant evening. My sister and I shared an onion tart, not much onion taste but wonderfully flaky puff pastry, and a delicious beet saled. Then she had citrus duck and I had marsala pappardelle with mushrooms--couldn't taste much marsala but it was very good anyway, nice mushrooms and the pasta pefect. Very pleasant service, and the wines by the... More

We came here for two dinners and breakfasts as we stayed at the beautiful inn. Our first dinner had great service, our second did not. The waitress made numerous mistakes and the service was painfully slow. The wrong appetizer was brought. The waitress forgot our drinks initially. The filet was good that my family had and my husband liked his... More

This is the only fine dining around. Nice ambience, good service, good effort on the food but don't expect it to be commensurate with similarly priced restaurants elsewhere. The dishes we ordered were not bad but flavors were unbalanced.

dinners seemed a little pricey, so we chose a late lunch (12-2). ordered the cobb salad too - the chicken was unfortunately too dry.

Wow, after a long day of Death Valley activities, we had a great dinner at the Furnace Creek Inn. We didn't have a reservation but we arrived at the hotel at 5:00pm and the restaurant opens at 5:30pm. Thankfully Ian, the maitre d, found us a table for 5. We had three boys, two teenagers and a 12 yr old.... More

Very good food but very limited menu for lunch which is the only time we went. Service fantastic. Interesting servers if you want to talk, but not intrusive if you dont want to. Kept glasses and drinks refilled. We left our credit card there and they took care of it.

Old school dining in the desert - albeit relaxed and semi informal. What an oasis in the middle of nowhere and the price was reasonable too. Take cocktails on the terrace, watch the sunset and then view the lowest point in North America - what great experience. Then dinner in a great restaurant. The food and service were perfect. Four...
