We visited Eolus during our stay in Durango. The calamari was fantastic! The house Martinis were fabulous! (Tip: visit during happy hour, you won't be sorry). I ate sushi and my husband had a burger with both the truffle fries and sweet potato fries. Everything was delicious. Our server was friendly. The food is fresh the atmosphere just right. Not...

I took some friends to Eolus for a celebratory dinner. The service, food, wine and ambience was perfect. The food is imaginative and very high quality, made with many artisanal ingredients. Recommended. Our waiter was super-nice and knowledgeable.

We ate at Eolus with our 2 year old. Sat on the roof top. Service was outstanding. The food was as great. We both had surf and turf and it was superb. 2 year old had gourmet mac & cheese and sweet potato fries. We also had made from scratch bread and dessert. It is a more expensive restaurant (on...

We ate here 2 years ago with a large group and really enjoyed the food, so when we came back to Durango, it was our first choice for a date night. We had every appetizer on the menu, minus one, and they were generally very good. However, the crab stuffed chicken entree was just mediocre. And for $29, I would... More

Over the years I've learned to tell the difference between a perfunctory smile and a smile from someone who's enjoying what they do. Everyone I encountered and observed at Eolus looked like they were enjoying themselves. I followed my server's recommendation on the night's specials and had a fantastic meal. My meal was delivered from the kitchen by one of... More

We enjoyed our dinner on the roof. The atmosphere was casual chic. My husband had a steak and I ordered fish. Both were the specials of the night. Both the food and service was excellent.

We had an early dinner reservation (works best for our family with an 8 and 11 year old). Great meal and service. Interesting menu, great food and best kids menu (variety) we've seen. Enjoyable vacation meal!

This restaurant has good food and a great patio. The presentation of their food is pretty darn good and is almost matched by the quality and overall flavor. It is not the best I have ever had but it is really good. The patio is located on top of the restaurant, which is quite the novelty. A bit loud when... More

Never made it to a table. Walked into an empty place at 5 pm and were told they were too busy to seat us. I asked when their "busy" night was going to start and was told not until 6pm. A waitress stepped in at that point and told us she had a table for us. We graciously declined and... More

We celebrated our 11th anniversary at Eolus on the recommendation of a Durango resident and TripAdvisor. We are glad we did! We had the specials for the night which were a swordfish dinner and NY strip steak dinner along with the cherry bomb for dessert. All were excellent; although it was just a bit more expensive than other comparable places... More
