During an overnight in Basalt with family, we had made reservations at Cuvee based on web notes and their web page. We expected quality wine choices with fun food pairings, as advertised. We were disappointed at the result. Food was below average for a place attempting to be of higher quality. It was not bad, just was not good. The... More

We spent a weekend in Aspen in the summer and the high-priced, pretentious restaurants in Aspen proper were driving us crazy, but some friends took us 20 minutes down the road to "downtown" Basalt where we had a lovely, relaxed dinner at this charming bistro. We sat outside on a warm summer night but the interior seating looked nice. I... More

We celebrated our anniversary here, but we'd definitely go back anytime just to enjoy their menu. The appetizer of "crispy calamari" was excellent, and our main dishes of beef tenderloin (2 sizes available, which is nice) and fresh halibut were superb. We were so pleased that we sprang for dessert, which was creme brulee made with Colorado honey. Yum! It's... More

Cycled down form Aspen and stopped (again) at this great little spot. Situated on main route for cyclists so easy to park the bike and settle down for fluid and light food before the cycle back up the valley. Good outdoor seating and friendly service. Lots of glasses of water and lemonade dealt with the thirst and a good menu... More

Just in to Basalt for the night, we chose Cuvee for the extensive wine list, and ended up finding very good menu offerings as well. We split the tenderloin and halibut entrees - both cooked appropriately with delicious sides. The wine pairings were also good, although the first glass of Justin cabernet tasted like it had spent too long in... More

If you've visited Cuvee before, try them again. They have finally changed their menu and now have more vegetarian and pescatarian "real meal" selections (if I can ever stop ordering their wonderful queso fundido). Also - dinner items are also available for lunch. Their wines are terrific (although the pours tend to be light). Service can sometimes be problematic. Cuvee... More

Service was a little slow especially for the number of guests they had. I ordered the gnocchi and was very disappointed. It had about 3 times the amount of vegetables as gnocchi and you had to search to find them. My husband had the steak and that was good. We also ordered the queso fundito and it really didn't make...

For many people, Basalt, Colorado is just a place you pass through on the way to Aspen. Cuvee makes it worth a stop, or even a trip from Aspen. They have over 60 (yes, 60) wines by the glass. You can even split a glass into three wines to compare them. The owner/chef is innovative with the menu. I like... More

A friend loves Cuvee so much, she gave us a generous gift certificate to get us in the door. I was so impressed with the three entrees we tried. We will definitely become regulars in the future!

Went in for happy hour and stayed for a fantastic dinner. $10 happy hour items with a glass of wine. I recommend the mussels and queso, very excellent. Wine selection is outstanding with very knowledgeable bar staff. For dinner had the Duck which was also outstanding. Duck is not an easy dish and did everything correct. Make this a destination...
