“Great Happy Hour, Good Food & Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

After a day of skiing, a bar with with great prices on well made drinks(you can actually taste the liquor) is a nice finish. But we weren't done yet. The decor was tasteful, more NY contemporary than Colorado. Our waitress was attentive and nice. The steak au poivre was perfectly cooked and the sauce was as good as it gets. Dessert was the highlight...a bread pudding topped with a bananas foster. As good as it was, it was too large to finish. We'll come back again.

“Great Avon Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

My wife and 3 kids dropped in without a reservation. They quickly accommodated us. Food was really good. I had the 4 bone lamb which was fantastic. Pace of the meal was perfect after a day on the mountain and a hungry family.

“Outstanding Food & Service for Large Group”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

As the leader of a ski club group of 38 diners, finding a location in and around Beaver Creek that could handle us on a Thursday night in high season proved challenging. We finally came across Blue Plate Bistro on Trip Advisor and based upon other reviews, started dialogue with their group reservations coordinator. Liz was a pleasure to deal with and she worked with the chef to put together a limited menu option for us that also fit within our budget. They dining room was outstanding, as was the food, and service. I highly recommend this place for anyone, including larger groups looking for a special dinner location.

Thank you! The Jacksonville Ski Club was a wonderful group to work with, everyone was so grateful and pleasant. Steve the group leader and I communicated well and he trusted our Chef's choices. We hope to see this group again! The Blue Plate Team!

“Bad attitude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

My wife and I dropped in last evening, without reservations. There were tables available, but the hostess' attitude was so surly and uncaring that after we were seated we changed our minds and left.

There is way too much competition in this valley to spend your time and money with people that don't appreciate your business.

We went next door to the far-busier Vin 48, which happily worked us in despite no reservations. Vin 48 was exceptionally good, as it always is.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

We were very pleased with our dining experience here. My husband had the Pork Schnitzel and I had the Crispy Duck. Both were excellent - especially the duck. Our server, Laura, was great as well. We had eaten at the restaurant next door, Vin 46, the night before and were very dissappointed, as the food there was bland.
