Beautiful setting but very disappointing. We ordered food in the bar and after 45 min.it had still not arrived. When we asked the bartender about it he said he had checked with the kitchen but was sorry he didn't know when it would be ready. Then he asked if we just wanted to leave. So we did. Very hungry and... More

Did something change here? Two years ago, we thought it was really good. This time, it seemed like the prices were much higher and the food wasn't as good. I had chicken and it reminded me of the food you get on a cruise ship- looks fancy but is just okay. Service was okay.

The setting is excellent, (we took a walk along the lake while waiting for our reservation time to come up), the service was Excellent, the food was Excellent. Ordered appetizers as we were not that hungry, the spinach and artichoke dip was great, they let me taste two different wines.

My son and I are locals, decided on a last-minute dinner out, had not been here since it was the Lakeshore Lodge. We were seated quickly with that great view of Lake Estes and the mountains. Can't remember now exactly what we had [this was 9 days ago] - I think mine was just an appetizer, which was delicious and... More

The setting is excellent, the service was lacking, the food was really sorry. Ordered an appetizer, spinach and artichoke dip, sent it back one and still was really bad, had their hanger steak with spinach and cauliflower, all there were bad. Had the chicken piccata with asparagus and cauliflower, all three were bad. I have nerve reviewed a restaurant that... More

We had dinner here while staying at the resort. We were the only people in the place, a Tuesday night. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating and provided excellent service. Servings were very generous and we ordered way too much food. The food was good to very good, but not excellent. We did not eat at the restaurant a... More

My husband and I chose to spend ONE night out after our wedding at the Taharaa Mountain Bed and Breakfast on April 21,2014 (Awesome place BTW). The server was so inept at taking drink orders and appetizers it took 30 or so minutes to even get a drink. They were overpriced and not up to par to say things nicely.... More

We went for dinner on a Friday night - an early, 5:30 time - and were one of 3 tables being served, which was great for us. Our server, Rachel, was terrific - friendly, accommodating and fun to talk to. The filet dinner was fantastic; the rib-eye was really good, but fatty - seemed more so than other places we've... More

I loved everything about this restaurant. Our waitress, Kari, was perfect - friendly, familiar with menu items (we were having trouble deciding what to order because everything sounded great!) and allowed us to have a leisurely meal without feeling rushed. The view is amazing. Everything we ordered (asparagus salad, salmon crostini, calamari, avocado and crab egg rolls, and more!) was... More
