We visited this restaurant for the first time while visiting the area. The ambiance was nice, however we were disappointed with the service and the food. Our salmon was a bit under cooked for 'medium' and the polenta it was served with was way too salty to even eat. The green beans were so under cooked several were indelible. The peach pie was okay, crust was a bit soggy but filling was not too sweet which was nice. Our cappuccino was served too late - was served after our dessert was consumed. Perhaps it was an off night. :(

The restaurant had a nice ambience , the service was excellent. The food was "fancy". If you are looking for meat and potatoes, this place is not for you. The vegetarian fetucinni with panchetta, was interesting with corn, mushrooms, green beans, and no cheese. We shared a leaf salad with peaches, and pickled onions with a very creamy Italian dressing. Anyway, it was rather expensive for what we had.

I have had several nice meals at Season's, however, yesterday's lunch was not one of them. We arrived at 11:30 am with a party of 6 and were the first group to be seated on the patio. Our order was taken to the kitchen and we waited and waited while other tables seated after us were all served their food before us. The patio filled up with patrons who all received their food before us. The server then brought out 3 of the meals while the other 3 in our party were not brought out until 15 minutes later. The meals were not as described on the menu, with additions or subtractions from the actual description. A dissapointment for folks allergic to, or just not liking certain items. Some of the bread items were burned, and the plating seemed thrown together at the last minute.
I would assume the kitchen had some mishap but the server didn't mention it. Nor did she apoligize for the bad service.

When we planned our trip with a stop in Durango, we knew we wanted to eat at our favorite restaurant, Ken and Sue's. When we got to Durango however, we found that it was temporarily closed due to smoke damage. We were so disappointed. Just down the street was Seasons, a restaurant we had never tried, but had heard it was good. We ended up eating there, and were not disappointed. In fact, we had incredible service and exceptional food. The atmosphere is pleasing, as well. We topped our meal off with a piece of Palisade Peach pie. Wow! We were impressed by Seasons. Now our only problem is we have two favorite restaurants in Durango. Guess we'll have to flip a coin the next time we're there.

We were hooked from our first visit, which was to book a table for the following weekend. The guy manning the bar (Jeremiah) took us under his wing, helped set everything up. Later, when we came out of the mountains early, they moved our reservation to the evening we came back to Durango. That was my wife's birthday, and our evening at Seasons was up to the challenge.

So what's special about Seasons? Staff. Everyone from our first encounter to our exit was friendly, professional, helpful. Some of the best restaurant staff I've ever met. Excellent wine list. The sort of wine list that shows someone really cares about wine and food together. Stunning food. Even the salads were artful combinations of flavors. One of our group had an appetizer off the specials list that was so stunning we're still trying to replicate it. Main meals were about meat: beef sirloin for two of us, lamb sirloin for my wife (did I mention we were just out from 5 days of hard walking?). Just delightful, cooked well, great pairing with the wine the restaurant had held for us. Mmmm... The bar. Jeremiah, our friend from our first visit, was on again. At dessert the others in our group were opting for port or Madeira. I was in a different mood, and so stopped over at the bar, looking for Scotch. Islay Scotch to be exact. Jeremiah noted that he had a couple Islay whiskeys, but would I like to try a highland whiskey he'd stumbled on recently and really liked. I tried it, and it was not what I'd been thinking of - but it was really good. Wish I could remember the distillery in fact..

So that was our evening. A long and unhurried meal of wonderful food, grand wine matchup, and a killer whiskey to finish it (me?) off. A night to remember. Seasons has to be one of the best restaurants I've ever visited.
