this Truly was a great experience. The food was spectacular. I've already recommended this place to my friends and famly. I'm sure the scenery would have been nicer during the fall season, but nevertheless, I booked it for a birthday dinner for my mom.. and my parents really enjoyed it. The service and staff were so accomodating.

Very nice restored trains! Relaxing time. We were in the dome, worth the extra for it!

An absolutely lovely experience. From the delicious food to the wonderful atmosphere, this was a truly enjoyable time. While a little pricey, the experience is worth the price tag.

The food was good, but not fantastic. The ride was also not nearly as scenic as expected; in an area when beautiful mountain vistas are the norm, we spent an awful lot of time looking at people's backyards.

This was such a fun and unique experience, a perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. We sat on the main floor (Table 1, Boarding Group B) and had an excellent view, though our table was next to the busing station so at times it was loud. The train ride was very smooth and the atmosphere on the train was extravagantly retro. Each of the courses tasted excellent, particularly the shrimp cake with remoulade! The staff were very professional and the meals were all perfectly timed to fit in the 2 hour time frame. Our only critique is fairly minor: we wished we had gotten physical menus listing the night's appetizers and entrees--it was stressful trying to remember all the options. Even just one menu per table would have been sufficient to make the night a breeze.

I loved the trip. The food was great. The staff was so nice. The only thing was it was a little chilly. Need to bring a sweater next time. I would do this again and again.

Took this train ride at the start of Summer. Can't wait to take it again in the Fall. By then, the scenery will have turned from "great" to "spectacular".

We thoroughly enjoyed dinner, the train, Amanda's friendly and professional service and Ali's prompt replies to our questions. We will be coming back in the Fall and we are already recommending it to our friends. Thank you for a lovely dinner and an enjoyable evening.

We had a great time! It was such a unique and fun experience! The food was okay. The apps and salad were amazing but the dessert was rather bland. It was still fun even though the food was okay.

My husband and I spent over $200 for a gift certificate with previous owners. It was for his parents. We went for fathers day to celebrate his late father with his mother and brother since his father was never was able to travel after purchase due to illness. We paid extra for drinks and gratuity but it was not honored. We were told in front of guests on the train they would only give us $160 for it regardless of how much we paid. The train ride was pleasant, however, the food was less than mediocre. Apps were sitting under a heat lamp. Salad was a handful of mixed greens, sour dressing and a few nuts - no veggies, cheese on it or dressing option. Sorbet was ok but was not fresh. Entree was Ok.. Dessert was served without options which was very disappointing. We will not be returning.

The food and drinks were great. The personalized service was quite nice - especially related to the price of sitting upstairs in the observation car. The negative is the train is tired and worn. Probably providing a high pressure washing would help immensely. The train is clean inside and there a window or two which was fogged and it was hard to see outside.
