5 of us- 2 kids, 3 adults. The waiter was nice enough at first, but it was all downhill from there. After a long wait he brought 3 of the meals, and 10 minutes later still no salads or entrees for the other 2 people. When my husband asked the waiter when we might expect the rest of dinner, he was condescending and rude. The owner claimed he was going to get the rest right out, 10 more minutes go by with no salads, no burgers. By then nobody was interested in waiting, so we asked for the check, expecting the owner would be apologetic and maybe comp the food we did get, but neither was true. Overpriced, ridiculous service, mediocre food, poor recovery from major errors. Never again.

We've eaten here at least 2 times a year for the last 5 years. The fondue is fun for our family, even if somewhat overpriced, but hey, it's at a ski resort. Nice staff that is responsive to kids with food allergies, which we always appreciate.

My family eats here several times when we go on our ski vacation. Great for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. My favorite is breakfast - I would love to try other breakfast dishes, but their pancakes are so good, I have to get them every time. Small, cozy bistro located at the base of the mountain. Highly recommended.

We waited over 10 minutes until our waiter showed up. He was super nice, but the service was really slow. The happy hour wings that we ordered were extra overcooked. We probably won't be coming back to this place.
