This isn't just a restaurant - it is an experience. Tina and Olney will prepare a meal for you, you will never forget. Great wine list and paring recommendations, too!!!

Grand Lake is full of mediocre restaurants. But not this one. My husband and I tried out O&A for first time this past weekend. We ordered Biscuits and Gravy, and Traditional two eggs, hashbrowns, bacon served with the best biscuits we've ever had! Delicious, fresh, made from scratch, flavorful food. The owners were amazing hosts too. The quiet charm of... More

Not very good for a romantic Valentines dinner. Menu looked good but food wasn't what I expected after reading other reviews. Food and service were less than average.

We ate at the creperie for brunch this morning on our way out of town. It was fabulous! Not sure why we've never stopped in before. Service was great, decor was cozy, and food was delicious. We'll be back!

Grand Lake is dying for a high end restaurant experience. O-A Bistro has the right idea but struggles for delivery. If you are looking for a customized dining experience (allergies or such) O-A Bistro is a good canidate. Great wine list for Grand Lake.

This is a great place for lighter fare. Well prepared with a slightly French accent. Great food but not for the burger and fries crowd.

Last night was our second exceptional experience at this tiny, quirky restaurant. Tina, the owner and chef serves up endless flavors throughout the dinner courses. The menu is new every week, so it's always a different experience. When you dine here, allow for plenty of time (don't be rushed) and enjoy the opportunity to relax with friends and great conversation.... More

OK, I admit that I'm a food snob. Pulling into Grand Lake after driving over the summit through Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park, I expected a bunch of burger joints and pizzerias. But this place was a delightful surprise. A crêperie! Mountain cozy, soft classical music, really nice service and excellent crêpes, reasonably priced. The seafood crêpe was creamy and flavorful...

Ate at the bistro on our last day in Grand Lake, wish we would have went there before that. Service was great, even though there was only one waitress, she handled things well and was there when we needed her. As for the food, it was home cooked and appetizing, and was a good value for what we ordered. Would... More

The decor of this place is very nice and comfy, the servers were super nice and accommodating. The french toast was yummy, the grits were cold and lacked flavor :( The huevos papas were good going down , and not so good coming out. (if you get what I mean) would we eat here again? probably not , there is... More
