“Lovely place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I had lunch here at the bar. Great service, good food, knock-out views. Not too expensive compared to the places at the bottom of the hill so a relatively great place for lunch.

“Top food at top restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

It's very nice to have a restaurant at the top of the mountain. The food and the view were one of a kind!

“Best on mountain lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is by far the best restaurant on a ski hill I have ever been to!! I had the soup and sandwich special with a side of truffle fries to share with my friends! I also had a ceaser, which makes the afternoon of skiing fly by!! Great restaurant and can't wait to go back!!

“Great location, good food, awful floor manager”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

This is one of the best aspects of KH- getting off the slopes and into a fine dining restaurant at 7700 feet above sea level.

With heavy timbers, high ceilings and views to the Rockies and right across to the Bugaboos, one could not ask for a more spectacular location.

The menu is excellent, and not outrageously expensive. Our party of four ate everything from a seafood 'super bowl', to a steak, a chicken sandwich, and a bison hash. All good except the chicken sandwich featuring not the promised baguette, but small conventional sliced bread.

The only real downer- the person seating us and bringing menus (she literally tossed the dessert menu), was disinterested and unhelpful. When I asked someone who the floor manager might be, in order to alert them to a sub standard worker, I was directed to- her!

One of our party misplaced a glove. As might be imagined, at minus 12 degrees, a glove comes in handy. Same floor manager said nothing had been found, and trotted off with no suggestions other than to check lost and found at bottom of mountain. Turns out, the glove had fallen on the floor, and someone took it to the bar, where it was safely put behind the counter. Zero communication...

Despite these shortcomings, I do not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.
