Best Service in a long time

We were in town for a ski trip and found this little place in the Village. I have eaten all over the US but have never had better service than this little gem. I have never seen an owner work so hard and yet never seem like she was in a rush. That's because her wait staff was tops! 5... read more

We were wandering around near the base of the Steamboat resort looking for dinner, and stumbled upon a truly great restaurant. Cafe Diva combines wonderful service, a quiet and pleasant pair of rooms and really fantastic food. Certainly worth the significant cost. On a Sunday night, we were seated without a reservation. One dining room is brighter, but we sat... More

Creative and imaginative pork belly peanut butter on raisin toast was a great appetizer and way to set the tone for the rest of the meal! The portion was HUGE and would have sufficed at half. Braised lamb shank was spot on. Gnocci with mozarella pearls was stick to your ribs comfort food! We'll be back.

Tremendous personal attention with a great wine bar. I had the Elk, we tried pasta, fish and vegetarian and it was good enough to take home and reheat for the next night. Elk backstraps were amazing, tender and filled with protein for skiing the next day! We will be back.

We stopped in early on a Friday evening and sat at the small bar for some drinks and food (only 4 stools). The food was amazing. We had the Peanut Butter and Bacon Sandwiches - the pork belly and Thai peanut sauce was delicious. We also had the Elk Sausage and Manchego Empanadas which were also great. Great bread from...

We ate here the first night we arrived so it was running on the late side for dinner (8:15). I wanted to eat light so asked if the carrot beet and apple slaw was really like a cole slaw and was told no - it was quite different. Well the flavors were different, but it was all shredded like a... More

This a "special occasion" restaurant (unless you have an unlimited budget). IMHO it's the very best restaurant in Routt County. Well, okay, I haven't been to all of them, but I still say this with a high degree of confidence. Without exception, every time we have eaten there, the food has not only been delicious, but often it's quite unusual.... More

I can't even begin to explain how awful of an experience I had at Cafe Diva this week on my family vacation to Steamboat. The restaurant's name itself, Cafe Diva, should have been my first clue to how pretentious this place is. From the second I walked through the door, I got the vibe of a completely STIFF atmosphere. We... More

You have to try the elk medallions! Very good and tender beef. Make a reservation because they fill up quick. Really nice atmosphere and really awesome service.

Make sure you make a reservation way ahead of time. We went with friends and everyone's meal was delicious. The elk was outstanding.
