“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Beautiful winter wonderland ride to the restaurant. Inside it's cozy and has a huge fireplace. The menu is varied and everyone raved. From the incredible crab cake appetizer to the buffalo tenderloin or the potato stuffed lobster and top it off with baked Alaska flamed at your table. Everyone shared and loved it all. Incredible wine list too!

“Beyond excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

This was not only the best restaurant we found in Beaver Creek, but maybe one of the best meals ever. The atmosphere is beautiful and there was live music during dinner. Service was perfect - very attentive and knowledgeable staff, timing was just right. Great selection of wines, and the food was unbelievable. We had the elk loin and buffalo tenderloin, which were cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. The chef combined each dish with surprising and complex flavors. A three course meal is pricey, but well worth it.

“Good food, not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Service is excellent. I wanted to love the food, but meh.
The desserts are excellent, especially the soufflé. Worth having!
The appetizers were just average. We had the scallops and tartare. Neither amazing.
We also had the dover sole (La Tour in Vail is much, much better). Dry fish and found too many bones. They filet at table. This is usual, but don't do it if the bones are not getting removed.
Also had the buffalo/short rib combo. Buffalo was good, cooked perfectly. Beans were too al dente. Short rib was off putting.
Considering the cost, unsure if we will return. We were all expecting fabulous...

“Overrated for what you pay.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The food at Splendido was good but I think it is way overpriced. There was some different selections (trout, elk, rabbit) than what you usually find on a menu. Everything tasted good but price was high (even when compared to other Beaver Creek restaurants). I would not spend the money to go here again. It is also not located in the village so you have to take the free shuttle to the Chateau to get there.
