From farm to table and vine to wine Eolus Bar & Dining offers something for everyone. The local bounty shines through as the restaurant features an array of local products from farms, ranches, vinters, and breweries around southwest Colorado. Offering distinct places to enjoy the cuisine the rooftop patio is covered providing ample protection from the elements while providing premium views of the surrounding mountains. The elegant dining room provides choices of tables or booths to relax and sample creative concoctions from the bar. Eolus is great place to celebrate special occasions so be sure to let us know how we can elevate your dining experience. We are open 7 nights a week starting at 4:30.

We made reservations several days in advance based on TripAdvisor reviews. When we arrived, the restaurant was not busy, but service was slow - very slow - and not coordinated, the way service should be. That is really our only complaint. I will say, my grilled hanger steak was so incredibly tender, and the gorgonzola mashed potatoes were the best... More

I had a friend visiting and we were eating our way through Durango. While it's almost impossible to find a bad meal in Durango - this was the best! First the rooftop dining was amazingly beautiful - Second the service was stellar - Third the food was fabulous! I had the fish special - Wahoo - and it was cooked... More

Like many families, ours has very different tastes. Some meat eaters, some not, a couple kids, grandparents, etc. which makes finding a restaurant that has something for everyone a challenge at times. I booked Eolus with this in mind and I was overall very happy with the menu and our experience. My husband was extremely pleased as they were able... More

We decided to try Eolus on a whim our first night in Durango. The menu is a bit eclectic, with offerings that should please just about any palate. There is a nice wine menu, and the service was good. Our table ordered everything from sushi to steak and everyone was quite pleased with their meals. We will definitely try Eolus... More

We have visited Durango several times in the past, and Eolus had always intrigued me from the street. When we finally made Durango our home last month, I knew that I wanted to treat my family to a special celebratory dinner (our anniversary and my birthday) here. I loved the ambiance, the lighting and decor. We had a party of... More

Sat at the bar with Mera. She recommended the Scallops appetizer which was amazing, thanks for encouraging us to get that extra scallop. Yummy!. The Chupacabra was delicious and creative. Great food, amazing service. Really creative drinks. My Husband said it was one of the best manhattans he has ever had. So grateful we found this gem, a must visit... More

Given its high rating and the high prices on the menu, I was expecting our evening to be very special but we left disappointed. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival and the service throughout was excellent - attentive but not rushed which was just what we wanted. The evening started well with a good craft beer for...

Dinner tonight. Had the swordfish special and a mixed green salad. Food was excellent. Outstanding service by Zel. Sat on the rooftop deck (two flights of stairs to climb but worth it on a nice evening). Not a wine drinker but wine list appeared very extensive. Bread with olive oil a nice starter. Overall excellent but expensive.

From the attentive hostess and wait staff, to the supreme martinis, to the excellent food, this well decorated restaurant fulfilled our every expectation. Highly recommended.
