“Outstanding Cuisine moderately priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

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.

“Very intimate dining; great food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

This restaurant is located in a large home. This meat tables were fairly cozy; but comfortable. They had a guitarist playing during in dinner which was an elegant touch. The food and service was great also. They specialize in lamb, which I did not get. I had chicken marsala which was very good. The wine list also had some great affordable choices, which was a pleasant surprise.

“Great food, but pricey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

We had a wonderful meal of rack of lamb, and a mixed grill of elk and trout. The food and service was fabulous. The prices were a bit high. Nice location and cute facilities.

“Great food and atmosphere. Super service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

We walked two blocks with four other people. THe main courses at first seemed a little pricey but when you consider the fact that you get excellent soup or a big good salad, it was worth it. I had a huge rack of lamb and my wife had an equally large pork chop. Both were excellet. There are two floors and the feeling is cozy and relaxed. Service was excellent too.

“Decent but not fantastic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

Nice comfy decor and great service but the food was so so. Delicious clam chowder. Salad dressing was fresh and home made but too much of it. My miso scallops were not great- very salty.
