We had great food here. But we also ate at every top restaurant in town last week. It just isn't worth the price difference. You can eat as well, for a lot less. Presentation, however, is very nice, as is the service. Just not our favorite in town, and certainly the most expensive of the places we ate, by a... More

As a Durango local, we frequent this establishment whenever we have guests in town or for special occasions - and we have never been disappointed. They are consistently delicious and their service is phenomenal!

Eolus was up to its typical level following the Snowdown parade. The chipotle, leek and bacon soup was excellent. Likewise, the James Ranch hanger steak.

We went here because some out of town friends wanted to try it. They have a good wine menu and the food was delicious we just wished there were more of it. The portions were tiny for the price. If I pay $22 for a "large" salad I hope to at least feel full! We had to have a snack... More

We have been to Eolus on serveral occasions and have always been pleased with the food and the service. It is one of the best restaurants in Durango and we thought it would be a great place for dinner on New Year's Eve. They offered a prix fixe dinner either 5 or 7 courses. The price was about $100 per... More

Had a wonderful evening enjoying wine and appetizers. Great place to relax and enjoy drinks. Service was great and the music wasn't too loud. Great calamari but the only disappointment was the sushi. It was very average. They really need to remove it from the menu. All in all great place!!!

Terrible! Small-very small-portions. The chopped "salad" was served on a 6"x6" plate with minuscule rows of food, greens were extra $. Entrees were very average in flavor and quality, yet quite pricey. The duck was nearly flavorless. The server hovered and interrupted us repeatedly. Although we've been to Eolus numerous times in the past, we won't dine there again, nor... More

Highly recommend! It is a bit on the pricy end, but excellent service and the food is incredible. Who would think of lobster on a stick. Lobster Corndog, Awesome! And gourmet! We split the Surf and Turf and it was perfect. The kitchen split it for us for a small charge. Plenty for us. With a nice French Bordeaux!

We were greeted and sat immediately. Our server was friendly, but not knowledgeable on the menu. She had to run to the back a few times to get an answer. Normally this wouldn't be a deal, but for the prices you pay here, the expectation bar is set pretty high. The food was good, not great (the presentation was beautiful).... More

This is obviously a well managed restaurant. The servers are attentive without being intrusive, the food is excellent, and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Great location in downtown Durango near lots of other restaurants & bars.
