“Elegant, yet relaxed! Wonderful food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

In Glenwood for a Birthday weekend, left Vapor Caves and drove by the Hotel Colorado, it looked so inviting with all the lights outside, we decided to go inside and look around, that is when we found the restaurant. We were dressed casual, but the waiter said no problem and gave us a private seat for our celebration, the menu had lots of wonderful choices, we both ordered fresh fish dishes and the were prepared perfectly along with all the delicious sides! Even the coffee smelled and tasted wonderful! Would love to return and recommend to others going to the Glenwood Area!

“Outstanding food in a restaurant with fantastic ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

As you enter Baron's you are immediately put into a state of relaxation, with the appropriately dim lighting and the soothing sounds of the fountain cascading against the stone wall at the back of the restaurant.

The food is outstanding, with a great variety. The salads are delicious, as are the soups. Our group shared a hummus plate and found it exceptional from fresh roasted garlic to olives, vegetable, and perfectly warm, soft pita bread.

We enjoyed several outstanding dinners with outstanding pasta, fantastically prepared salmon and trout (the head of the fish is left on the trout dish) and delicious steaks.

We ate here for breakfast on several mornings and enjoy their fruit smoothies, Denver omelette, and outstanding salmon/eggs/asparagus breakfast.

The service was almost always outstanding, we had one decent waitress and every other wait staff was top-notch.

And as an added bonus enjoy the beautiful Hotel Colorado lobby (we enjoyed music at night on two occasions) and the great hotel courtyard with fountain and trees lit at night.

“Should be on Chef Ramsey's - Kitchen Nightmares”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

TERRIBLE. This is supposed to be a high end restaurant in a high end hotel. We made reservations 4 weeks in advance, and they lost them. When we did get seating it took an hour and 20 minutes to be served. The children (certainly could not call them adults) that served our food were completely untrained. Served meals to wrong people, Served dishes across diners rather than walking around. The fish I ordered was seared on the outside and raw in the middle. I asked them to take it back to make it right, they re-served the same fish STILL raw in the middle after having it in the kitchen for 20 more minutes. By the time they brought it back the rest of my dinner companions had finished their dinners. Apparently most of their food is frozen rather than fresh. Our friends dinners were served cold and/or not cooked as ordered. Only my wife's dinner was acceptable.

NO apology's at all, Wait staff just dropped the dishes and literally trotted off. the bill was literally thrown onto the table. There were NO managers in the Restaurant. We went back the next day and were given a bunch of lame excuses, again NO apology. It'll be a cold day in hell before I go back to Baron's.

“Breakfast and Bar Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

I was skeptical after deciding to have a quick breakfast here before making my spa appointment, but it turned out to be delicious. I have a hard time paying hotel prices for food, but it was the best we could do since we were pressed for time. We both ordered the Salmon bagel. It was $11, which really made me grumpy. I was pleasantly surprised when I was given a very generously sized poppy seed bagel, dill flavored crean cheese, fresh diced onions and tomatos, capers and a very large portion of smoked salmon. If you like strong coffee, this is t he place for you. I'm a mild coffee drinker, so I wasnt thrilled with it, which is a personal preference and does not reflect on the restaurant at all.

Cut to later in the evening...my hisband and I stopped into the adjacent bar for a cocktail. There was a large group of folks who decided to have their xmas gathering there instead of messing up one of their homes. Also, the regular bartender was missing due to a family emergency. The restauarant/bar did the best they could to fill in, but it was chaos. Apparantly there had been a flood in the bar recently and they had just re-opened. There must have been a breakdown in communication after the opening, because they ran out of all their beer on tap, and were down to bottles. The one poor girl who was functioning as their main bartender (Angie) was being run ragged. The bar/food manager was seen standing around, chatting patrons up on more than one occasion and not helping out at all. He needed to be up there running the bar with her and had all the other gals (waitresses and bus staff) running drinks, bussing tables, cleaning glassware, etc). They ran out of glassware more than once and again, the bar manager was seen leaning against the bar, chatting away, with his elbow no more than 2 inches away from trays of dirty glasses. Someone clearly did not want to get his hands dirty. Short staffing happens all the time in the service industry, but a good manager always has a plan B. No plans were being executed as far as anyone could see.

The next night the bar was much slower, so we stopped in for cocktails after dinner. The same bartended was there and still seemed to be having a rough time since no one was helping her (bar manager??!!), but the beers on tap were back in business, and every surface in the place wasnt covered by dirty glassware. The bar manager at one point did come behind the bar and served a visibly intoxicated man who should have been cut off. He was being loud, cursing, and verbally abusing the bar staff. He asked for a double of something, and instead of being refused service, was told that he could only be served "a single". Really? He got his single and left shortly after for a bar downtown. It got rid of him in the end, but at what cost? Bad bad bar manager.

Wonderful food and appetizers too. We loved the soups and especially the calamari...ordered it twice. Everything we had was just delicious.
