I booked El Tovar for my boyfriend and I during our overnight to the Grand Canyon. I had read online that it was the best option. It's a beautiful space and a cool experience - right on the rim. The overall vibe of the dining...More

We dined at El Tovar on two separate evenings during our stay at the rim. While it is the best place to eat at the south rim, it is decidedly uneven. Some dishes are quite good, others not so much. There were 5 of us...More

The food was very good with great views and ambiance. We love historical lodges and El Tovar was a nice place to sit and relax for lunch. Service was a bit slow, but National Park lodges can get busy and we were slightly off season...More

This is a physically beautiful restaurant with views of the South Rim in the historic old El Tovar Lodge. That being said, one gets the distinct impression from the staff that they are doing you a great favour by allowing you to eat there. The...More

At the recommendation of the campground host, we went to El Tovar for breakfast our first day at the Grand Canyon. After a 20-30 minute wait, we were ushered to a window table with quite the incredible view. Our waiter was phenomenal, and gave us...More

My two friends and I thoroughly enjoyed this white-tablecloth restaurant. The food-- breakfast, lunch, dinner-- was, with only a single exception, excellent. Omelets, quiche, cheese & chacuterie boards, vegetable sandwiches, chicken with a nice sauce, lamb -- all were excellent. Portions were generous, and the...More

We went here primarily for the location, history and architecture of the place, and the food turned out to be quite good as well. Our waiter was friendly and helpful, but not in-your-face. I started with the side-by-side soup of black bean & roasted pepper,...More

We ate here twice, even though we were staying outside the park. There were not really other good options--the dining options at Grand Canyon, other than El Tovar are pretty dismal. Not unreasonably priced. Not exceptional food, but decent. The wait staff was pleasant, but...More

We ate lunch here while visiting the Grand Canyon. This is a fine dining establishment with cloth tablecloths and napkins. The waiters are in Tux like uniforms. The food is 5 star quality. The pricing is surprising reasonable (still not cheap). Service is top notch.

There's a view of the rim from the restaurant. It is a nice view but limited to the tables near the window. Thus, if you sit elsewhere in this large establishment you will not have a view of the Canyon.

Not really. We went in for breakfast wearing jeans, t-shirts and hiking boots.
