We sat at a table on the terrace with a view over the green lawn down to the Yampa River. A rainstorm blew in with crashing thunder,and it was thoroughly enjoyable because we were under an awning and didn't get wet. Great service and lovely food.

A great atmosphere by the Yampa River. It's relaxing and refreshing with great shrimp and crab appetizers.

I go to Steamboat frequently and Cottonwood Grill is always one of my dinners while I'm there. Fabulous pan-Asian menu. My favorite cocktail is the Curly Bamboo: coconut vodka, Midori, pineapple juice with a frozen Serrano pepper on top. The bar has wasabe peas and spicy chips, which certainly help inspire a second cocktail. The poke appetizer is incredible. My... More

We have been coming to Steamboat for 20 years, and just had our first visit to this great restaurant! It has a beautiful setting, with many tables at windows overlooking the Yampa river, and as daylight savings time extended the light it is just what we were looking for! The waiter was above and beyond courteous and helpful. Once my... More

We came to Cottonwood Grill for a nice dinner with friends. The atmosphere was very warm and cozy. We were seated in a back room and were able to have nice conversation without having to talk over noise, which was really nice. The service was very good here, attentive and informative without being stuffy. The food was good but not... More

The restaurant is located next to the Yampa River, with outdoor seating available in warmer weather. We had a table next to the window overlooking the river, which looked magical with fresh snowfall and fairy lights shining in the dark. The cocktails are good. I found the food to be pleasant, but not spectacular. We had the Peking duck appetizer,... More

Amazing food. Inventive and well prepared. Loved the cashew encrusted chicken. Peking duck was fantastic. Food was fresh with good portion sizes. Services was great. (Thanks Phillipe!) Beautiful, beautiful setting by the Yampa river. Would be great for a wonderful romantic evening or time with friends. Can't recommend them enough. Not cheap, but well worth the money.
