The menu at the Blue Lion is outstanding. The regular options are comprehensive and the specials of the day are equally comprehensive. We started with a Special Indian (curry) coconut soup that was outstanding and a Caesar salad that was very good. My wife chose the Rack of Lamb that the restaurant is famous for and it didn't disappoint. I had the Elk Medallions and Rainbow trout combo. The Elk was superb and the trout delicate. However, I do not recommend this combination as the Elk and its sauce overwhelms the trout. Servings are large. For dessert we chose the Raspberries in Russian Cream and the Coconut & Peach Torte. Both were excellent.
The wine list is reasonable and had a good choice but not outstanding. To its credit prices were moderate. We had a bottle of Greg Norman Sparking wine at $43.
Service was courteous, prompt, knowledgeable and non-pretentious.
The Blue Lion has a 20% off policy if you are seated before 6:00pm which we took advantage of. The total after discount with tax and tip was $144 which is a bargain for a dinner of this caliber anywhere.
The only small criticism I could make is that the atmosphere was homey. This could be a plus to some. The Blue Lion is added to my list of Jackson hole top restaurants along with the Couloir, the Alpenrose and Stieglers.
