I’ve been to Moraine Lake a few times and I’ve always wanted to go to the dining room here. Often when I go, the dining room is booked solid. This time, we went for a walk to Larch Valley/Sentinel Pass and then made a reservation for Moraine Lake Lodge – Dining Room. We got in for first seating on a Sunday – so there was room for us!
The dining room is quite small and intimate. It’s a lodge cabin decor and is warmed by a wood burning fireplace. It’s got lovely ambiance – warm and romantic!
We decided to skip on the appetizers this time and go for dessert as I always crave sweet food after a hike. So, my main entree was their Steelhead Trout which was cooked to perfection! The fish was fresh and delicious, with a beautiful crust outside and it sat in a little light broth. It was amazing!
My husband ordered Elk Tenderloin that was cooked with port wine with red cabbage. The tenderloin was tender and juicy with a nice sweetness from the port. It was absolutely delightful, and even the vegetables and potatoes tasted really good. We really enjoyed the sauce and wiped it all up with some bread at the end!
Now, it was finally dessert time. We ordered their Chocolate Torte which was a dark chocolate torte with an amazing sea salt caramel brittle. The dessert was amazing and it wasn’t a sweet dessert which we really appreciate. It’s sweet, but not over the top sweet which makes it truly enjoyable.
Overall, everything here was amazing. The price was a tad high, but the atmosphere, the service and the quality of food is what you’re paying for. This was a magnificent experience and would be perfect for any occasion!
