Dine in service was closed and we ordered in room service. The lamb was $44 and it was ok, but cold and nowhere to warm. The chicken breast was $39 and completely dry, along with the pasta it came with. We were extremely disappointed

We felt the food was expensive, for what it was. Understandably the price is jacked up for being in a remote location.
The veggies were undercooked. Don't like soggy veg, but you shold at least be able to cut them with a knife!
The lamb was beautifully cooked. The dessert, lemon tart: the filling was thin and runny - underwhelming.

We enjoyed a lunch experience back in September, but would not go back there for dinner/supper again.

Service excellent! Portions good. Wild boar not our favorite but veggies were great. Charcuterie plate really nice and good value. Scallops good but only 2. My favorite was the LAMB!!! Yum, BEST LAMB I have ever had in my life!

We had an excellent meal with an excellent view ! Our service was average, but not bad at all. She just couldn’t explain the feature cocktail, and seemed very disheveled. Other than that, it was exceptional dinner and breakfast!

Was disappointed in the overall quality of the food. I had high expectations of this restaurant and it was mediocre, especially considering the price point. We were particularly disappointed with the Charcuterie board, literally getting 4 pieces of toast, like you would with breakfast, on a charcuterie board from a higher end restaurant was very disappointing and did not pair with the meats. It was overall underwhelming and we won't be eating here again.

Cleanliness was less than awesome. We had the same table for breakfast the next morning and the same dead mosquito was on the window sill. A mosquito. In February. Made me wonder how long it had been sitting there?? Food was decent. Although I had to send back my porchetta because it was 95% fat. Ended up with the lamb which was good. Waiter was inattentive.

Excellent food and gracious service. It could be made better if the tables were draped with tablecloths and perhaps candles on the table!! All in all though we really enjoyed our stay and the food was an added bonus. We will see you again.

Remember to turn the heat on

Be on time - we were. And there was no one there to greet us.

Loose the beards. Disgusting for food service. Take your job more seriously or do not take the job.

We enjoyed our dining experience very much. The food was delicious.
However we found the prices a bit expensive for the portion amount.

The food service was excellent as was the quality of the meals served and the wait staff. Our only observation was that the manager catered to a few celebrity type of guests repeatedly in each restaurant but would ignore all other patrons speaking to no other diners. This happened at each meal we reserved.
Overall would go back just for the surrounding beauty of emerald lake lodge
