I had high hopes for this restaurant. It seemed as though it would have fresh ingredients and interesting dishes. Well, it doesn't always work out that way, does it? I stopped in at 7:30 on a Wednesday evening. The place was about half full and not overly busy. The service was pretty slow, and not at all attentive. I sat... More

My husband and I only have positive things to say after we finish meals at Eolus. The wait staff is welcoming, the service is timely, and the food is SPOT ON DELICIOUS! My advice, try the fillet. Eolus is our favorite fine dining restaurant.

On a recent stay in Durango we were fortunate enough to dine twice at Eolus. Both experiences were absolutely fantastic. Our hats off to everyone from the owner, to the chef, and even more to the servers that made our experience special. Special mention of Spenser, our server, must be made. She helped make our Anniversary Dinner especially enjoyable.

We ate here for the first time tonight and my whole family was impressed! The menu features meats and vegetables from local farms and you can tell by how fresh everything tastes. Everyone was very friendly and gave great service. We sat on the balcony upstairs and had a wonderful view of the surrounding mountains. I highly recommend eating here!... More

I live in Durango, and this is my favorite restaurant. The service & the food are consistently great. The warm beet salad is delicious, and the hangar steak is my favorite entree. This is my favorite place to come for a special night out. The atmosphere is great. I wouldn't recommend it for kids.

Our family had dinner here and we loved the appetizers, bacon and scallops plus the main courses that were mostly steak and lobster. Josh and team provided great service too. Our youngest enjoyed the kids menu too.

We dined on the upstairs patio. We had the scallops appetizer, warm beet salad, the quinoa and the duck entrees. The food was excellent. A minor critique of the quinoa dish is that the pesto is a bit over salted. I appreciate a place that serves good olive oil as an option for bread dunking rather than just butter. We... More

We made reservations online for our 25th anniversary dinner. I had done a lot of research on TA before selecting Eolus, quite a bit of it based on the reviews of others and the menu available on that night. Being such a special occasion, I made sure to note that we would like to have their most romantic table. We... More

The seafood capellini stew is out of this world -- at least U.S. -- have ordered in many overseas locations and this is "hands down" the very best!! The Duck is also consistently outstanding! I look forward to every visit because Eolus is the best in Durango -- both in service, atmosphere and quality and creativity of the food they... More
