SO good

Our one complaint about CK's is that sometimes some of the staff can be a little...snobbish...which makes no sense in a place where you are paying a pretty decent price tag for the food. Customer service should be given 210% and always with graciousness and a smile. Get past this small hiccup... read more

If you read a previously written negative review for this restaurant, I will pay their way back for a second try. After visiting this valley for over 3 decades, this is my best meal since Evergreen, in Ketchum, closed. The ambiance is warm and inviting. The service is attentive, informative and knowledgable. The "slow food" movement, which they adhere to,... More

We've visited the SunValley/Ketcham/Hailey area a number of times but had never tried CK's. Our friends. who we were visiting, said they had heard good things. We'll join the chorus and sing praises. We had the "Cowboy" Steak, 2 Rack of Lambs and the Flat Iron Steak. The favorite was the flat iron with it's mushroom sauce and mushroom bread... More

CK's Real Food is always excellent and never disappoints. The food is locally sourced and masterfully prepared. Quality is the hallmark here. CK's never disappoints.

...for the food, but the service doesn't merit it. Walked in on a Thursday night without a reservation, and the staff seemed, well, distracted. The small dining room had perhaps four occupied tables but it took several minutes of back-and-forths and 'just a minutes' for the hostess to greet me with "Can I help you?", with a look as if...

Small intimate restaurant. Very good service, and friendly. But, the main reason for the top rating is the food. Ahi tuna to perfection, melts in your mouth. Same with a beet infused salmon. Melted in my mouth. Very good wine list! Highly rated for a reason! Don't pass this up if you appreciate fine dining!

Chris has been an incredible chef for years ! His slow food is to die for. The vegan desserts are out of this world good! Great service. A nice patio for summer dining. And a complete wine list.

CK's is our "go to" place for entertaining and it's always good. I had a marlin sashimi which could stand up to any sashimi anywhere. They have an extensive wine list and the service is both friendly and professional. Servers keep their eyes on you so all you have to do is look up and they're there.

The restaurant is lovely and so is their concept of organic and natural foods with much variety. Their big burger was very tasty as was the chicken breast. The accompanying veggies with each main course were varied and tasty as well. Our complaint: my wife ordered her salmon cooked medium well, and it arrived medium rare instead (the waitress said...

Our entrees were excellent. However the staff attitude about our warm wine with plenty of residue was not acceptable. Also my beet salad was described as containing "apricots". One half of an apricot hardly qualifies given the price.
