Great location, very good food, reasonably priced, great service in a true mountain venue. Judging by the constant crowd the locals and tourists both agree.

The food was good, claimed to all be home cooked but we found the prices just slightly overpriced but not enough to avoid this place. Worth a visit if you're in the mood for Italian. We went on a Saturday night. It was packed and we had to wait for a table so I recommend making a reservation.

Glad you joined us for dinner and enjoyed everything -- thanks for leaving us a review. We believe in making everything fresh for our customers, so sometimes our prices are a little higher than elsewhere. That said, we have some great happy hour specials during the winter. Would love to have you stop in and try them out when winter... More

The Dunraven Inn Restaurant was our only choice to have dinner as we were hiking from inn to inn and so did not have a car. Our B&B called the Dunraven and we were not disappointed! The staff, everyone of them, were so welcoming. We felt like we were walking into the home of good friends. We shared the mushroom... More

We're so glad you stopped in to join the little family we have here at Dunraven. It's so fun getting to welcome travelers to our town by way of food. I'm glad you enjoyed your entrees, and I apologize if the artichoke dip wasn't quite to your liking. Most artichoke dip recipes tend to have a salty, savory flavor, and... More

We enjoyed our meals here. The food and price were good. The service was okay. Our server was also serving a large party so there were several times we had to wait for things; however, it was enjoyable over all. If we're in the area again we'll try another restaurant for variety. Yet, we would not complain if someone with... More

I'm glad to hear your experience with us overall was a pleasant one, but I'm disappointed you described us as average. Holiday weekends can get pretty hectic around here, but that's never an excuse for our service to be lacking. Anytime you're dining with us, your server should take care of you as quickly and as professionally as possible. I... More

We arrived 5 minutes early for a 730pm dinner reservation and were promptly seated at a great table in the main dining room. The atmosphere was quaint, historic and lively. Even though the restaurant was busy, our server (Bianca) made us feel like we were the only diners there. Our meals were fabulous (lobster ziti, veal marsala, and the seven... More

We wish we could see you again too! All the same, I'm happy to hear that we could be part of a special family dinner for you all. There's nothing quite like Italian food that can bring everyone together. Thanks for leaving this nice review -- I'll pass along your compliments to both Bianca and the kitchen staff. Please swing...

We were not overly impressed with this restaurant. First, when we sat down, my son's chair had spaghetti covering it from a previous, obviously younger diner! The waitress was apologetic however, and promptly wiped it off. I ordered the Veal Marsala, but was disappointed when I was told they were out (surprising as we had a fairly early dinner at... More

I'm glad that you took your friends' suggestions and stopped in to check us out, Donna. It's disappointing, however, that your experience was anything short of perfect. It sounds to me like you might have been here on one of our busier days. That would explain why the staff might have accidentally overlooked the spaghetti on the chair and why... More

Growing up in Estes gives you the opportunity to eat out in the top restaurants in town. The dunraven inn by far has my #1 spot. The service to the food is exceptional. The staff socialize more than just taking your order and bringing your food. Plus, the food is amazing. You can taste the work into making the dish.... More

Cute restaurant with good food. Great service. Best if you make a reservation as it fill up fast. The walls have bills all over them.. Very unique. Adds to the charm.

I love the food from the Dunraven Inn, especially the seafood! This is the best place in Estes to get great seafood. The shrimp scampi is amazing! I was lucky enough to have a piece of Norwegian Sea Bass from this restaurant and I must say that it was one of the best pieces of Sea Bass I've ever had!... More
