“Great new resturant in Durango”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

We tried this restaurant on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews and found it just as good as others have. My wife had the duck and it was perfectly cooked and on a bed of greens that were a real complement to the duck. I had a half chopped salad the contained smoked salmon,greens, cos-cos,cucumber,avocado ans cucumber in about equal volumes. The house smoked salmon was excellent and made the salad. The also have a large sushi menu.

“Best new restaurant in Durango!”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

Really enjoyed this restaurant .. a new fine dining experience in Durango, and a great step up for this city. Excellent starters and salads, many with locally sourced foods. The beet salad was just wonderful and not too big .. just perfect! I had the Filet, and my husband had 'Prime Rib Two Ways'. The filet was excellent and perfectly prepared, accompanied by roasted vegetables. Again, a great size and not too big. The prime rib is different than what you might expect .. a more elegant version and lean like the filet. If you are looking for marbling, this is not for you, but the food is excellent. Wine list is good, and hopefully will be further expanded. The bar area is great , and they have upstairs patio seating outdoors ( super view of the area ). Reservations recommended !!

“Pricey but excellent service.”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Most items on this menu include shellfish of some sort, Which narrowed my choices down quite a bit. The atmosphere and service are top notch. Very attentive waitress with extensive knowledge of the menu waited on us. I truly wish the restaurant offered a wider selection for shellfish sensitive folks like myself.

“Delightful Meal”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

The filet of beef with the red wine glace made this the best I have eaten anywhere. Tender with sauce that further enhanced the meat. Mashed potatoes and asparagus seasoned perfectly. The flour less chocolate cake served on maple flavored toffee shell floating on a layer of red and black raspberries was a lovely finish to a flavorful dining experience.
