If you like Mahi Mahi you are better off getting the fish taco's. They only give you about 3 oz of fish with 9 oz of fattening risotto. Your best to come at happy hour only..

Had the service been better would have scored 5 stars! The food was exceptional. I ordered the butter leaf lettuce wedge to start and the venison special for my entree, both outstanding. the delicate crust on the venison was really tasty.

I enjoyed a fresh and delicious kale salad (with quinoa for some protein) on the side patio on a sunny day. It was very good. The restaurant is casual and comfortable -- good for conversation. The service was friendly and helpful. Blue River Bistro is consistently good.

My wife and I frequent Breck infrequently, meaning when our schedule allows for a nice weekend, we go. And we love it there.. great shops and cafes, spectacular views and a sense of "real Colorado". We hadn't eaten at Blue River until this last trip and I can say I wish we had walked to this end of the street... More

So, I've been in Colorado for 2 yrs now and have always wanted to go here because I heard they had a great Happy Hour w/ great Martinis. Finally my girl friends and I decided to go. So happy we did. The host was very nice and walked us to the bar where we wanted to sit. Our bartender was... More

Not great but good Italian at Resort prices. I had lasagna which was very cheesy but lacked meat and had very little Ricotta cheese. My wife had wine of course and they had her favorite New Zealand Chardonnay and had a special that allowed you to get a whole bottle at half price. The only problem was that when the... More

Came in for anniversary dinner. Place was packed, live music was just our style. Very friendly service, it felt like everyone knew we were celebrating. In addition to the excellent service, the food was fantastic. The appetizers were really fresh and really delicious but I will always remember my main dish as one of the best things I ever ate....

I don't know why it's so hard to find decent fresh salads while I'm on vacation, perhaps I'm not looking in the right places. Blue River Bistro delivers on the salad front though. I ordered the kale-quionoa salad and my companion ordered the roasted beet salad. They were both beautiful and delicious. After the warm-up we shared an order of... More
