We come to the mountains a few times a year and enjoy dining at the various restaurants in Grand Lake. We decided to try this fairly new restaurant which had mixed reviews but in general seemed to be a good place to eat. The restaurant was small, nicely decorated and had a warm feeling for an intimate evening. We were... More

We had to settle for O-A for lunch as we were too late for grab breakfast at Fat Cat. While the decor is "interesting", the service and food left a lot to be desired. My Cali club sandwich was. Ot a club- no bacon, bread not toasted and turkey was totally tasteless. My wife had a stroganoff crepe- made with... More

In the small quaint town of Grand Lake, O-A Bistro stands out as a top-notch restaurant with an tasty cuisine. We've had two dinners here so far and will come back on a future visit. We've had the six course dinner and both visits were wonderful experiences. Tonight for the main dish we had the Tuscan beef ragu served on... More

We started the day at 4:30 EDT, traveled to Denver, picked up a car, drove to Grand Lake, prepped our equipment for a 6 night backpacking trip in Rocky Mountain NP, THEN went looking for dinner. We had gotten a couple of recommendations, but those spots were packed and noisy. So we wandered the street and came upon O-A Bistro.... More

We had breakfast here and it was delicious!! We sat in the solarium and the waiter was so welcoming. The main dishes come with coffee or juice included. I didn't have room for the homemade pastries but they looked so delicious that I bought one to go so I could enjoy it at the airport. Delicious!! This was our last... More

We ate here for dinner and it was by far the best meal we had n Grand Lake. Very small place so make sure you make a reservation. We had the six course meal and everything was great (menu changes weekly). I had the wine pairing with my meal (the rest of our group did not) and it was a... More

Small and very comfortable. Wait staff very helpful and attentive. While the menu is small there is a great variation available. There is also a bakery attached for desert. I had the soup of the day, tomato and red pepper and it was great. Also had a burger and it too was great, $6.95. The house salad with tuna added... More

This is a cute restaurant with a fun decor. Not a huge menu - more of a tapas style place, but everything we ordered was very good and fresh. We especially liked the meatball sliders and the stuffed dates! Server was prompt and friendly. Overall, a good option for a place to eat, but not necessarily if you're super hungry... More
