The only reason I rated this review as average was because the staff offered great service from our first drink at the bar to our waitstaff at the table. Other than that I would have given the meal less than one star! We ordered the...special which was seaweed wrapped Wahoo. It tasted so awful my husband would not eat his serving. The fish was poor quality and tasted sour or on the verge of spoilage. We did enjoy the fried ramen noodles upon which the fish was served. We are not the type of customers to complain to the waitress so we left disappointed. Since then I have read some reviews that have not been favorable about the seafood quality. If I was to eat here again, (not gonna happen)and found the seafood to be unacceptable, I would say something and so should you.More

Eolus used to be a go-to place, but it's gotten way too overpriced, and the service is meh. The food is good, but lacks some inventiveness. I know restaurants have suffered during COVID, but it seems Eolus is just gouging folks at this point.

My wife, granddaughter and I had dinner here. My wife's steak dinner was OK but the seafood stew was very disappointing. Bland and not hot for $50 I expect more of it!

We had previously been to Eolus three years ago and fell in love with this place! We started with the lobster corndogs. This was a creative idea but we wanted more lobster flavor. Then the roasted beet and goat cheese salad along with a caprese...salad. The beet salad was still as delicious as it was the first time! The caprese salad was tasty, but we would have preferred the balsamic to be reduced more to a yummy syrup. The seafood stew was to die for!! And the creme brûlée is a must!And the jalapeño margarita was delish!More

I’m traveling cross-country solo and selected this restaurant based on the reviews. I wanted something high quality. I was under-impressed. First, the server was a nice young man but had no idea what to do with a solo diner. A little conversation would have gone...a long way in making my dining experience more enjoyable. It certainly would have been better than constantly trying to upsell me. News flash: A 110 lb woman will be plenty full on an app, salad and bread. And no, I don’t want another $15 glass of wine, for the third time. The scallop app was delicious. Well done. The warm beet salad was a disappointment. The beets were pickled and tart. The salad was laden with goat cheese and swimming in dressing. The prices were ridiculous. I kicked myself for not looking at the menu on line before dining. Oh well.More

This was our best meal in Durango and we hit several of the top 10's here. Great vibe with low lights and brick walls. The servers are all on top of their game and do a tag-team presentation that is efficient and interesting. The food...is top-notch; I had a hanger steak which is so rare to find on any menu - it is truly the most flavorful cut of the animal, and it was cooked perfectly. Coffee and desserts were really good too. Well-rounded place and great value. Will definitely re-visit.More

We had a great dinner here as a family! The rooftop seating is the place to sit in the restaurant. The food was really good, the best we’ve had in Durango! The service was great!! The waiter knew the food really well, and the specials...too. He also had a good knowledge of the wine list. The support wait staff were really good too. They were attentive and knew how and when to clear dishes, which is becoming a rarity. Overall a great experience!!More

We loved it so much we went 2 nights in a row! Ask to sit upstairs if that’s an option for you- it’s beautiful. We had two delicious meals here and the local wines are amazing. I would definitely recommend Eolus to anyone looking for...an amazing local Colorado meal.More

Everything was top. Food was delicious. We had the prime rib and shared an order. To share was five dollars more but they doubled the sides and halved the meat which was plenty for us. Beautiful presentation and the servers we well trained.

Business causal is what we usually say. But Durango is a laid back western tourist town so whatever you are comfortable in will be great.
