“Fabulous Dinner!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

I took my two adult children when we were in CO for spring break. Both the meal and the service were excellent! Our favorites..... The elk tenderloin and the cheese fondue with dried spinach and artichokes. Would love to go back sometime.

“Inconsistent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Excellent meal in mid-Feb. Delicious spinach salad, crab cakes, and small plate entrees of quail and bass. Very flavorful. Service slow despite few patrons. Returned 2 wks later and food was so-so. Duck egg rolls yummy but hamburger dry and blah, Small plate salmon absolutely NO flavor, steak with blueberry sauce just ok. Yes, views of Needles mountains are lovely but disappointing food will take us elsewhere in future.

“Very Enjoyable Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

We dined here on our last night of a ski vacation. Very good, pleasant service. Helpful wine choice. Duck was delicious as were the appetizers. Steak was good, not great. They seated us in the bar area despite the fact that tables in the nicer main dining room were empty saying that was the only spot. It appeared to be geared on the wait staffing. For the price, they could staff the nicer setting. Despite the minor annoyance, I'd recommend it and go again. I'd rate it higher on all counts otherwise.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

This would be good food anywhere - not just at the mountain. Our food was prepared just as we had ordered and they had a good wine list. Our server was young but did very good job - he even reseated us away from a loud small child. The parking lot can be tricky when there is a big snow. We will return.
We stayed at the Angelhaus Condos and did not like it - old dated everything.

“Wonderful!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

We hadn't been here in a long time, but it was time to try it again. Boy, were we glad we did! We both ordered steaks and they were cooked to order! My filet was tender enough to be cut with a butter knife! Everything from the bread to the salad to the dessert was wonderful! We will visit Sow's Ear again the next time we are in Durango!
