Not a good experience

I ate there with some friends and family for the 2nd time before it burned to the ground. My steak was cold and over cooked and the salad was very lack luster. My wife's entree was cold and we left in a hurry since the food took a while and we had to go. The atmosphere was dark and outdated.... read more

We were here days before a fire took away Damenti's. The food was good and the atmosphere was pleasant. Such nice people there that made you feel a part of the family. I hope they rebuild

Far and away the best restaurant in the area. Unfortunately, a devastating fire last night totally destroyed the place. :(

Our dinner at Damenti's was one of the best fine dining experiences we have had in the area. We started out with cocktails at their incredible "Ice Bar" and enjoyed all the beautiful ice carvings and the full size bar that was actually made of ice. Lots of fun! Then to dinner. The service was wonderful and the staff was... More

We've dined @ this restaurant at least ten times with good service & good food. Good food, not great food with an expensive price tag. The restaurant is nicely decorated and also has a pretty bar. Always see a crowd @ the bar, good gathering place. I have never visited the ice bar, too cold for me. We'll still visit... More

My friend and I went to Damenti's to check out the Ice Bar. It was really neat but way too cold to stay there for a drink, so we ventured up to the restaurant for dinner. Although the meal was good (not great), the price tag of >$100 for 2 people for an entrée with one vegetable, a glass of... More

Well we would of said the ice bar was pretty cool which it was except we came after the 5 pm opening and hung around 5 min or so and no employees where there to serve us a drink. So anyway they lost our business and we moved on down the mountain to Three Guys for a cocktail and bite... More

Very much overpriced and bad food . Our potatoes were burnt and not seasoned . Not sure how this place is still open . Not impressed at the quality of the food can get a better meal at a local greasy spoon.
