Since restaurants are primarily about food, I must say that the food here is basically of excellent quality prepared to order. There are a variety of salads, with the option of a small size (which is ample) or a large size. I had a small spinach and bacon salad that was fresh and excellent. For the main course, I had linguini with clams that was also of ample size and very tasty.
My wife had a duck dish that was also very tasty, but a problem with it was that it was not hot. Even after she returned it to be heated, it still was not really hot. My linguini could also have been hotter. Serving food hot is a particular problem at high elevations like this (around 9,000 feet) because the wet bulb temperature is low, so restaurants should make an extra effort to compensate.
We were with others and shared three dessert dishes, and all of these (especially bread pudding) were excellent.
Prices were a bit on the high side, but in line with other high quality restaurants in this area, where prices are generally above average because it seasonally caters to tourists.
Our food took longer than average to be served, but that was understandable because it was prepared to order. The service was friendly, but not sufficiently efficient to rate an "excellent." For example, some very tasty bread was served, but not until about 10 minutes after the salads and not in sufficient quantity for everyone at our table.
There is a bar area that appears to be a rather "standard" sports bar type of venue, The indoor dining area is (thankfully) separate, and was pleasant in an informal way.
Overall, I recommend the restaurant for a leisurely dinner of exceptionally well prepared food in a pleasant if unspectacular atmosphere.
