“TripAdvisor was correct on this one!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

This is one of the best rated and reviewed restaurants in the area with good reason. The average dinner was $15-$25 range but well worth it. We had their wedge salad and scallops. The salad was big enough for 2 to share and the scallops were heavenly! Very tender, melt in your mouth in a mushroom sauce-not overcooked as some restaurants tend to do! The kids had pasta with a side order of shrimp and a quesadilla. They were also both very good even though the quesadilla was slightly too browned. This place has exceptional wait staff and an exceptional chef. It is a MUST to go when in Durango!

“Great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

First time there and we will be back. The meal was the equivalent of a $30 meal for $18-$20. Good food, good price, good service, good ambiance. Highly recommended.

“Varied menu, well-prepared with great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

The ambience of this restaurant is classy, casual. The staff is wonderful and very accommodating. We ordered entrees of strip steak, gnocchi and filet mignon. Everything was plate pleasing and delicious coupled with a lovely waiter. Place was rocking for a Saturday night but we did not feel rushed or compromised. Lovely overall experience. . .

“Consistently fine food and superb service - #1 for us”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

This restaurant has been our favorite in Durango for lunch and dinner for several years (now tied with Jean Pierre's as #1 for us; please see separate review). Morgan and her outstanding staff consistently provide friendly and professional service, and the food is wonderful. The ginger chicken potstickers are a delicious appetizer to share. My favorite entree is the lobster quesedilla; you'll find it on the appetizer menu and it's enough for a meal for me. My husband usually has the daily special, which is always excellent. If you are a regular, get yourself on their snail mailing list which brings a coupon for a free drink or appetizer or dessert or a 15% discount a couple of times a year -- a real bonus that will bring you back for yet another delightful meal. Enjoy the patio in the summer for fun outdoor dining.

“Good food. Service not the greatest.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

We recently went to Ken & Sue's based on TA reviews. We were glad we made reservations even though we were there on a weekday in late October. Since no indoor reservations were available, we accepted the 'outdoor patio' seating. We were seated promptly but found the outdoor heaters were providing too much heat, so much so that 3 of our party of 6 were terribly uncomfortable. We asked to have the heat turned down and our waitress happily complied, but ended up turning the heater completely off. Another (probably more senior) member of the staff re-started the heater and again resulted in our area being extremely warm (we literally had to shield ourselves from the heat with menu's and other objects. My husband had to run next door to purchase a ballcap to keep the heat off his head (too late to keep him from getting a migraine). We asked our waitress to please get someone to turn down the temperature, but she disappeared never to return. My husband also asked another member of the staff, but he never showed up either. I finally got up and tracked down the staff member who had previously re-started the heater and walked with her until she arrived at the table and set the heater to a more comfortable setting.
The waitress was not very well-versed on the menu. One member of our party was a vegetarian and wanted a salad, but requested a dressing that was not a vinaigrette since she preferred something without vinegar. (there are about 4 types of dressings mentioned but every one of them is a vinaigrette) First we were told that there was a creamy parmesan dressing, but later were told that they were out of that. The waitress offered 'oil and vinegar', 'balsamic', and some other sort of vinaigrette, clearly not understanding the 'no vinegar' request.
Once we received our meals, everyone was very satisfied with our food - all presented as ordered and delicious. It's a shame that the service was not up to the level of the food.
