“Everything was fabulous!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

From the time we were picked up by the complimentary shuttle, it was a fantastic evening. The staff were fantastic, very knowledgeable and friendly. Moving to the lounge for dessert was such a lovely experience. The handmade chocolates after dessert was to die for. Would definitely go back.

“Exquisite food in the mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

We took another couple to The Ranch and they agreed that it is a very special restaurant. The menu has a Colorado flair, with wild game and Colorado lamb options that are delicious but there is always a fresh fish alternative as well as excellent steak. The setting makes the evening--a historical log ranch home elegantly decorated with oriental rugs and dining tables. The bar is a pretty place to enjoy a cocktail before dinner. Our server, John, made sure the evening was delightful. As other reviewers note, dessert can be served in the fireplace living room--so lovely and relaxing! The grand marnier souffle is their signature dessert and it is delicious. The Ranch is special in summer or winter. You can dress up for a special celebration or come casually attired.

“Casual atmosphere but great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

We dined last night at the Keystone Ranch, and cannot say enough about the great food, attentive but not hovering service, and pleasant atmosphere (quiet, relaxing and comfortable). Our table had views of both Quandary and Buffalo Mountains, and we watched the early arrival geese play on the snow that still covers the Keystone Golf Course. This restaurant serves wild game, great beef and lamb, and has a wonderful selection of wines and after-dinner ports and desserts.

“A delightful evening awaits.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

A Five course Chef Tasting Menu , great wine parings, wonderful service, and a snow covered meadow view from your window table make for a delightful evening. Having guests adjourn to the fireplace for after dinner drinks and dessert is marketing genius. The tables are turned for other guests and you are allowed to bask in the coziness of a fire , review your day , and enjoy their amazing Lemon Creme Brûlée!

“Truly memorable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

With a little call ahead the Ranch Culinary Team, lead by Chef Vlass executed on a perfect evening. My wife and I were greeted, seated and presented with a glass of champagne and wished the best on our anniversary. It had been over 10 years since we had last eaten at the Ranch. The food was exquisite and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Each course was a pure delight, with such savory aromas and artistic presentations. The food was the highest quality I have ever had at the Ranch. After an incredible meal we were seated in the dessert area and enjoyed our wine while they brought our desserts. The brought a dish that had happy anniversary written in chocolate. That was special and desserts were absolutely scrumptious. I can't say thanks enough to the Ranch Team for making our night so special. I'd highly recommend the Ranch for an upscale and delightful evening rich with memorable foods and service.
