Just a fantastic place to eat, lovely service, nice relaxed atmosphere, and quite simply superb food, seafood stew and surf and turf were brilliant, and as for the doughnuts with lemon curd they were magic.

The restaurant is elegant and the waiter was attentive but the chef needs to simplify his cooking style. I love crispy calamari but I didn't particularly care for their version which was bathed in some sauce. The "crispy" in crispy calamari was missing.

At first I felt disappointment because I am a very picky pescatarian but Nicole saved the day and I ended up with the most amazing lobster tail with baby bok choy and (omg) fantastic mashed potatoes.

Great atmosphere and service. Food was average for price paid --definitely on the pricey side. One salad, two entrees, one dessert, and one bottle of wine was about $240. But they do re-cork and you can take the bottle with.

this place has become a perennial favorite in durango for everything from business lunches to romantic nights out to festive gatherings for snowdown. is it pricey? when compared to establishments in town offering less of a gourmet experience, yes. just don't make judgements until you've had the bacon scallops at happy hour on the rooftop patio.

A group of 7 of us had dinner here after spending 5 nights camping in the wilderness. Had a great meal and the wine list was very good. Initially service was a bit slow but overall it was OK.
