The Dining

Dining on the GrandLuxe Train evokes the romance of the 40s and 50s. Regional cuisine, fine wine, white linen tables set with elegant china, and beautiful views create the perfect stage for whetting your appetite and culinary desires.

Reminiscent of a scene from a glamorous 1940s Hollywood movie, the GrandLuxe Train dining cars set the stage for exceptional fine dining experiences. Softly lit and intimate, the romantic atmosphere is elegant, yet relaxed. Your table, graced with our signature china and fresh cut flowers, presents a personal view of the breathtaking vistas unfolding outside the window — a natural backdrop to complement the evening's meal.

Best of all, our cuisine, prepared daily aboard the train, is truly superb. And our wait staff provides the highest level of personal service in the industry — a tribute to over one hundred years of fine dining by rail.

Essentially, the dining cars are regional restaurants on steel wheels. Our menu changes with the landscape, reflecting the ethnic and cultural influences of the areas we visit. Our experienced chef, well-versed in historic signature dishes, looks to the United States culinary abundance and innovative regional cuisine for inspiration. We select only the freshest seasonal ingredients.

Our hand-selected vegetables, herbs, seafood, meats and other ingredients are the freshest and finest available. The chef selects wines to complement the nuances of the evening's fare. The creative pastries served at Afternoon Tea and for dessert are freshly baked in the train's galley oven. Our dedicated staff strives for perfection at every meal.

Passengers consistently rate dining onboard the GrandLuxe Train — breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner — high among their favorite aspects of the journey. We’re sure you will too.
