We just had dinner at Shallots and what a wonderful experience. Our waiter, Robert, was friendly, polite, attentive, and concern about our enjoying ourselves. We started with the Caprese salad which was awesome and the ruby red trout was fresh and cooked perfectly.

Service was terrible.. after arriving we were waiting for about 20 minutes for having a glass of wather only. The place wasn't even busy at all!

Absolutely horrible. We took my wife for her birthday and walked in to be seated. At this time we were met by an older man who I thought was joking. He said everyone would be welcome but the dog. I smiled and said he is...a service and he is vested to also indicate this. At this time the other owner a older woman came up to us in the middle of the restaurant and said “the dog must go his hair is gonna cost me money.” I asked if she was denying access for a disabled combat veteran and a service dog?. She promptly stated “yes, he’s too big”. We not only were frustrated at their stance but so embarrassed in the middle of the restaurant. I refuse to support a business who doesn’t support our disabled community and veterans.More

Very special restaurant in Salida. Menu is great with creative specials. Limited wine list, but good with good pricing. Bartender makes a great Moscow Mule and Gin & Tonic.

My sister and I went for dinner. We ordered 3 of their small plates to share. The food was decent but wasn't very warm when it was served. The portions are what would be expected for a small plate. The saving grace of the meal...was the dessert. I had the chocolate chili torte. I've never had chocolate and chili as a flavor combination but I decided why not. It was so good! My sister had the berry torte and really liked it. It was a decent enough experience that I would consider it again the next time I'm in Salida.More

I’m currently hiking the Colorado Trail and I was surprised to find this spot had better food than the two nice places I ate in Breckenridge! The bartender makes excellent cocktails from their menu or he’ll whip up something for you. They were so good,...I had 3! (The Last Word, a Gimlet and something he made with fresh peaches and rum; tasted a bit like a creamsicle). I ate Ahi Tuna poke, fresh and bright flavors and garnished with edible flowers; I highly recommend. Also had grilled Octopus, very good. I capped the night off with a Tawny Port. The chef/owner was seated at the other end of the bar from me; very friendly people, great service and great food. Worthy of a visit while in town.More

We were a party of 4 - two couples, the atmospheres was very warm & inviting. All the wait staff were very tentative,friendly and made us all feel welcome & appreciated. The food was as good & would stand up to restaurant in our home...town of Duango,CO. BoydMore

Quaint little place with amazing food. The German Chocolate cake is to die for. Food is definitely cooked by experienced Chefs. Had no idea about the location prior to entering. We just randomly picked it out while driving around. So glad we did. Everything is...made to order and be prepared to enjoy a little downtime while waiting on the food to be prepared once ordered. Great chance to enjoy time communicating with family or friends.More

Dinner started strong. Delicious home baked bread and roasted peppers were spectacular. My side salad with the smoky vinaigrette was different and delicious. Entrees.... Just ok. My chicken was good, but definitely not worth 24 dollars. The bucatoni pasta was good, but too much of...it and the chicken could've been gotten at a place like Applebee's. My husband's green chili was so hot, he couldn't taste anything else. The service was friendly and full of smiles. Might go back to try something else, but but those 2 dishes.More
