I made the annual visit to Grand Lake CO with friends. This restaurant has the BEST food in Grand Lake CO. The staff is attentive and helpful with explaining the evenings menu. SIX course dinner with the WINE flight is the way to go!

The signature offerings of this small, intimate and very welcoming restaurant are a six- or two-course meal with wine pairings. We were a group of four, and we chose instead to work our way through many of the tapas offerings on the back page of the menu. What a good decision! The tapas were perfect for sharing. We started with... More

My husband and I were on our way to a nearby bakery when we were greeted by a server at O-A Bistro. We stopped to look at the menu, and after comparing it to the bakery menu, decided to dine at O-A instead. Great choice for us! The breakfast menu was comprehensive with both savory and sweet options. The hubby... More

We've had great tapas here prior to plays at Rocky Mountain Rep. Favorites are their meat and cheese boards where you choose from a wide selection, bacon wrapped dates, satay, to name a few. They didn't skip a beat when the power when out for half an hour on our last visit. They also offer crepes and a fixed price... More

Some family members recommended this place. We stopped by for breakfast one day. The decor is not that of a typical restaurant. There are bookshelves and other decorations. My wife and I dined on a traditional breakfast and french toast. The food was tasty.

My wife ordered the 4 cheese grilled cheese sandwich. I ordered the grilled pimiento cheese sandwich. They were both outstanding, but my wife's was the best grilled cheese sandwich I ever tasted!

We came in for breakfast this past weekend and while it was good it was not my favorite. The decor is kind of a turn-of-the-century vibe which is fun, it feels like you are going back in time a little. The restaurant is a little cramped but I am sure they are just trying to fit as many tables in... More

We had dinner here and the food was delicious and the service excellent. We shared some of the appetizers to start with, then had the 2 course dinner which was plenty for everyone. The elk bourguignon is the best I've ever had. The only disappointment was the creme brulee -- not very good, but by that time we were so... More

We decided to have lunch here after visiting the shops along the boardwalk. Dean, our server, was very friendly and attentive. We decided to share the New Mexican, chicken divan, and seafood crepes. The wait was a bit on the long side (20 minutes or so after ordering) but worth it! Each crepe came with a side salad (romaine, tomatoes,... More

This charming bistro has an excellent chef, and we were very pleased with dinner and the service. It has a unique ambience which made it all the more delightful, and is centrally located in Grand Lake.
