“Rooftop Date Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014 NEW

Absolutely fantastic ambiance and a lovely meal. Plating was gorgeous for my filet and probably one of the best pieces of meat I've ever had! Portion size was perfect too. Well done! Go local!

“Roof Top of the Food Chain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

This is a great restro in the downtown area of Durango. Our large group was accommodated nicely on their rooftop/patio and the cuisine and service were excellent. Even though the weather was not perfect, we were all very comfortable outside. The rooftop has covered dining so don't hesitate to request it.
Entrees that wowed us were: the Seafood stew, a rich cioppino style dish, roasted duck breast and the two way rib eye. We stumbled across a Mendocino area Malbec that gave us a great wine without the huge Cabernet type price. Apps were quickly delivered and props to our service staff (Barney) who handled our group flawlessly. We anticipate many more business dinners in Durango and will make Eolus our go to place every time. This is a splurgey (pricey) place but great food usually is.

“Second Best Restaurant in Durango”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Always good food, especially the sushi.
Service is excellent and James, one of the owners, is always available to consult on wine and uncork your selection.
Try the Caesar salad and wild salmon roll and lobster corn dogs----delish.

Prices are no bargain so be prepared for a large bill.

Fantastic food, a little on the pricey side, but worth every bite! The burgers are fantastic and the food is fresh. Check it out, you won't be disappointed!

“It's a mixed bag”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

We had dinner with friends recently and everyone had a different opinion. My husband's dinner, seafood stew tasted great but the portion was small compared to the Cosmo version. I had crab stuffed chicken that was not very good. I had to send it back because I could hardly see any crab stuffing and the chicken was tough and rubbery. It came back with a little more crab but the chicken itself was tasteless. For the price, I would choose a different restaurant next time. The one constant throughout our meal was the excellent service provided by Lauren -- she was a delight.
