Willow Creek is beautiful! The room is gorgeous, it has a lovely deck, and it overlooks Evergreen Lake from its location in the Lakepoint Center. The food is indeed the best in Evergreen, but what a low bar that is!
On a recent visit, one of us ordered a "shellfish pan roast" which was like a very bland seafood stew. It had the advertised scallops, mussels and razor clam, which is a rare find in Colorado. We were disappointed that there were two razor clam shells on the plate, but the meat of only one. I wonder where the other one went.
The other meal was duck confit over pappardelle. The duck was very flavorful, as was the sauce, but the pasta seemed like it had come from a box. We couldn't quite identify what was missing but it was another disappointment.
Really good restaurants are rare between Denver and Vail. Willow Creek could be the exception, but the kitchen needs to pay more attention to those important little details.
