“great picnic takeout”
Reviewed June 26, 2009

We were visiting the area and had eaten at the restaurant the night before. The food was so good that we decided to try out the "takeout" side at Why Cook. We were going to Black Canyon for the day and needed a lunch and they fixed us up with a gourmet sandwich with chips, a drink, and a cookie. It was a fantastic lunch and better than anything we could have picked up at the grocery store. We also went away with a piece of chocolate cake and cheesecake for a snack went we got back to the hotel.

“We frequent Le Bosquet more than any other in the Valley”
Reviewed February 20, 2009

Why go anywhere else and pay higher cost for food that doesn't compare? Le Bosquet is our favorite couples restaurant hands down. The interior could use a little update to go with the world-class cuisine but we keep coming back and I admit to ordering the elk every time. The staff is relaxed and friendly. You will not be disappointed!

“Worth the weight gain”
Reviewed August 7, 2008

Curse you, Le Bosquet! Your addictive horseradish mashed potatoes, your irresistible lemon bars and chocolate mousse, your sumptuous salads and soups!

Despite long hikes every morning, my husband and I returned home each five pounds heaver than we departed. Now it's salads and carrot sticks for us. This is all your fault!

Next year, we plan to go on a strict diet before we vacation in Crested Butte. That way, we'll be able to enjoy dining at Le Bosquet without having to worry whether our pants are still going to fit by the end of our vacation.
