The Dunraven appears to be recently redecorated. Nice upgrade, not as dark, more friendly. Both of us had the cream of sausage pepper soup, very unusual, but tasty ! My wife had the fettucini alfredo, it was served on spinach noodles, different, never seen it served on anything but egg pasta, but she liked it. I had the meatball &... More

I was surprised when they brought mine out and NO pasta?! I have NEVER ordered shrimp scampi before and not received pasta--HELLO--Italian restaurant should give... More

We stopped a young man who was walking his dog along a back street in Estes Park and inquired about a nice place to eat that wasn't the usual 'bar food' fare so popular in town, and this is where he sent us! The food was great and the service matched. It was crowded, but they were able to accommodate... More

We're happy to welcome both locals and tourists alike, but I'm sorry if the atmosphere here was a little too crowded when you stopped in. Sometimes during our peak hours, we can get pretty busy. That said, I'm disappointed that you thought our dishes were merely average. We don't usually hear that about the veal being tough, so it's possible... More

We have patronized this restaurant for 25 years - and this year seemed even better than before. Our party of 6 included 3 generations. All were pleased with the food and service. The wait staff was attentive, without being overwhelming. We used open table for the reservations quite easily. A trip to Estes Park should include a visit to the... More

We visited the Dunraven for the first time. They suggest reservations, and that is a good idea. It was nice to walk right in and be seated. The food is very good - worth going back to have again. The thing that would hold me back is the noise level. It's a popular place for good reason, but when it... More

I grew up in Estes Park and have seen lots of restaurants come and go. The Dunraven Inn on Highway 7 has always been one of my favorite places to go for dinner, time after time, year after year. In my opinion the changes that have occurred with the new owner over the past few years have done nothing but... More
