Ok.

We were 7 people. We had reservations from the day before. They sat us right away. Restaurant was very busy and the waiters and chef seemed overwhelmed. They said they were backed up and needed time just to take our order. Then they were out of the options we really wanted to order. The food we did... read more

i was a little nervous about trying this place after reading some of the reviews but so glad we ate here! Yes it's pricey, but totally worth it. Yes the portions are not piled to the sky but, they were more than adequate. This is a gourmet experience not Golden Corral. Inventive, beautifully plated and delicious. Perfect for a special...

Booking for 6.30 as all booked out, but it did not matter as we had a drink and nibbles for happy hour. Service was impecable. Food very good from fantastic burgers to Elk and marrow bones. Not very expensive. Would go many times if I could.

I visit Steamboat for a ski trip every year. I always try to schedule one "special" meal. In the past, it has been Cafe Diva, but I tried Bistro Cv this year. They are the better choice. Both service and food were outstanding.

An LA style place with great service and food in a small Colorado town with a great ski resort. Offers a very good wine list. Friendly staff.

Our table decided on the January Chef’s tasting menu. It was a superb choice. It is a five course meal featuring Big Eye Tuna Tartare, Elkstone Farms Herb Salad, Diver Scallop, Rocky Mountain Elk Loin, and Pumpkin Mascarpone Cheesecake. What a dining experience! There are so many flavors and textures, all very pleasing to the palate! I would be hard... More

Very chic restaurant. very good food and value for high quality dinning experience. The only negative is the delay in seating our party of 8. Our reservations was for 6:30 PM. We arrived at 6:35 but our table was not ready until 7 pm which was annoying.

We are foodies and expected a good meal but was surprised with a great meal. Service was charming, timely and hospitable. If you can get in, it would a shame to miss. Top marks.
