We ate about 3 years ago there. It was really good. This time, not so much.
They had a Special with "tender pork loin and barbecue sauce" that was awful. The meat was literally shoe leather tough, I've never had such tough pork loin. We should have sent it back and didn't, my guest couldn't get through half of it. It was disgusting for 32 bucks, I couldn't believe it.
I had the trout, and it was overcooked and if you like trout, you know the worst thing that a cook can do is cook it too long, it completely spoils the taste. It was pathetic. I've had better trout from Cracker Barrel, by far, for 1/4 the price. This is supposed to be a fine restaurant, well they really need to fire the cook.
The appetizer portions were TINY except for the French Onion soup which was very good. For over 10 bucks each for appetizers I expect more.
The desserts were excellent and the only really good part of the meal. It was a $200 meal for four people. I don't complain about price much when I go out to eat, and I'm an excellent tipper, normally 30% plus. They got 10%.
I cannot recommend this restaurant. We should have sent the pork and the trout back but I didn't want to cause a scene with my guests, we were there on vacation.
We ate at the Bright Angel lounge the night before, and it was excellent, what I'd expect.
Do not bother with El Tovar. Seems the hype is more important now than a fine meal.
One should never have to leave a so called fine restaurant with a WHAT THE HECK WAS THAT?? experience.
