Try the Bananas Foster, fun and heavenly. House salad is great, I had steak and lobster, the tail was huge and worth the price. Lemon dark cherry martini was awesome. Great time w my grandfather; we will go back. Thx Belvedere

This restaurant had great memories for me many years ago when my dad used to take the drive from Springs to Canyon City and enjoy this treat. I had vivid memories of great food, a fancy atmosphere and polished service. I had nor been to Merlino's in many years. I recently went back and beforehand buttered up my friends about its class. They had never been to it. We went on a Friday and it was a shocking embarrassment to be there. The first thing I noticed is that the place turned from fancy to ugly- casual..not nice casual. The bartender on shift did not know nor had the ingredients to make a "hot buttered rum". I ordered the $20 combination plate and in turn received a $20 mess. The presentation was so sloppy and messy. The taste was bland. Olive Garden does better than this. I couldn't believe this was the same world famous restaurant. My husband ordered the "chocolate cake" and received a gross version of gingerbread cake. The best part of the evening was the company. Wow. This was supposed to be one of the highlights of our trip and turned out to be a nightmare. Please look into this, Mr. Merlino.

Staying at a great B&B in Florence and had a flavorful meal including great steak, wonderful stuffed mushrooms, excellent pasta and a very friendly staff. Highly recommend dining here.

The food has been great for years. The service can be slow when they are busy but the food is worth the wait. Save room for the Banana's Foster which is prepared tableside.
