This is a very casual restaurant that served a nice breakfast. The food was good and there was plenty of it. I found the service to be very, very good. They were always ready to warm up my coffee and see if I needed anything else. Not a bad way to start the day on the slopes.

I couldn't believe how bad the smell was when I walked into the place. I left after 15 seconds so I cannot comment on anything else.

Ate here because the wait at the incline was 45 minutes. Bad decision. Took an hour to get our very mediocre and over priced meal. Prices are way too high, service very slow and food is average at best. $16 pasta was cold and bland. We won't go back. Spend your money elsewhere!!

4 of us went in for dinner on Saturday 1/10/14. We love food but aren't very picky eaters. We have also worked in the food service industry when we were younger so we are quite forgiving about mistakes. We seriously had the worst meal of our week long trip here. Our server had a lot of tables and was also... More

Ate here on our final night at copper. We had been recommended this place by ambassadors. The food was average and nothing to rave about. The menu for children is like most American resturants is all deep fried food! Nuggets & Chips, fish & chips, chicken fingers & chips. Our kids don't like deep fried food so this makes choosing...

Food was delicious and staff was careful and attentive. We ate every meal but one here and never got bored! We had one meal somewhere else and they made us sick. Alpinista is celiac safe !!! #glutenfreeheaven

We have eaten at Alpinista every visit to Copper. We have fondue and their raclette. We started with cheese fondue and it was only average. The longer it sat at our table the greasier it became. We ordered the meet and potatoes raclette for two. We knew not to add an additional person to the dinner because they are big.... More

We frequently visit Copper Mountain for a week or more and have frequented Alpinista for breakfast. We did so again this morning and I would like to say that the service was awful. However, I can't really even say that and still be truthful as we did not receive ANY service at all. It was about 9:00am and after the... More
