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

We ended up eating here twice during our week in Grand Lake. A lot of the restaurants in the area have summer help, many of whom are not very well trained. This restaurant was the exception. Our waiter was courteous, helpful, knowledgeable, and an excellent server. The crepes (both savory and sweet) were light and the fillings very fresh. What... More

Our neighbors had raved about the burgers which they had for lunch at this restaurant, but we were sorely disappointed. The burger was small, very "fast food" average with a "McDonalds" type bun. The chowder was bland with no flavor and was served at room temperature. We could never get the server's attention to tell him. The rest of our... More

We have passed this place a number of times, not realizing they served breakfast. We popped in on this visit and really enjoyed the décor (like eating in an old fashioned parlor). Though our table was a bit small we managed to fit everything on it. We really enjoyed the coffee and breakfast. It has a slower pace to it... More

We had made reservations a month in advance but when we called the day of to confirm, they didn't have us down, luckily they were able to fit us in. The menu was 6 courses and I choose to add the wine pairing. The food was good and there is plenty of it but the first few items were a... More
