I live inn Durango Colorado and up until recently have chosen Eolus as my favorite dinning restaurant in Durango. On my last visit I was served one glass of wine while my friend had a cocktail. Midway through dinner we ordered another. When asked why our order was taking so long the manager informed us that they would serve us... More

We are new residents in Durango and have been hitting all the best in town. I will put Eolus on the top of my list. I went through trip advisor and open table to make reservations. While on the way there we were called and the hostess asked if we would mind being on the roof. It's November in Colorado... More

The hotel recommended Eolus and made a reservation for us. We had a booth, which was nicer than the more open tables. We ordered the Prime Rib 2 ways which was plated between us - a quite sufficient amount. We also had the rhubarb special desert. The food was very well presented with sensible quantities that you could want to... More

The staff is highly attentive to details- Waiter Josh Bensik was extremely knowledgeable and the creative Wahoo special he recommended was first rate. The green curry mashed potatoes were an excellent surprise and the moderate "back of the mouth" heat was just right. The sorbet with berries and pastry was one of the top desserts ever! Eolus has placed the... More

Whoever is in charge of the front of the house at this restaurant should be commended. The hostess, bartenders and waitstaff have been well trained, and all possess this esprit de corps that you don't often find in the restaurant or other service businesses. Their friendliness, attention to detail, knowledge of the menu, and courtesy was impressive. As my kids... More

Wow, that starter scallop dish was yummy! Server knowledgeable and service smooth. Two couples; we all enjoyed the food. [As the decades creep up, i have less tolerance for the noise level.]

The restaurant has a fun upscale atmosphere without being too noisy. Decor is nice mix of historic and modern. I tried the lobster corndog appetizer out of curiosity. It was good but honestly didn't taste much different than a regular corndog. The crab-stuffed chicken was delicious, as were the apple pie bites for dessert. Service was friendly and efficient, as...

Absolutely awesome! Everything we ordered was very good. Perfect atmosphere, terrific wait staff , amazing food. It was pricey, but for a special occasion it fit the bill! The rooftop seating is something that there isn't a lot of in Durango, such a perfect place to have a amazing evening out.

We loved this restaurant! The scallop appetizer was out of this world; the grouper, the steak, everything that our group ordered was absolutely delicious! We ate on the rooftop which was really fun. Everyone wants to return to this restaurant and the staff was friendly and really efficient. We will definitely be back!
