“Courtesy & Appreciation Rewarded”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

Bruno is an true artist in the kitchen, including temperament. If you show appreciation for him and for his craft, you will have a superb dining experience. If you don't, you won't. Simple manners & courtesy will be rewarded. If you are not ready to show some deference to a truly accomplished chef, you'll be better off at one of the pizza/sandwich/hamburger places in town (and there are some good ones). If you are appreciative of a complete dining experience, you will love this place (bring your wallet). While it is a tad expensive, the experience is well worth the investment. We ALWAYS make it a point to dine here when in the Lake City area. Everything we have ever tried is superb, although I have learned to just order the special of the evening, whatever that is....a feast awaits.

“Without a doubt the most memorable anniversary dinner!”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

What a magnificent experience! Bruno's Grill and Restaurant is of the finest quality. This lovely, enchanting restaurant is hands down the absolute best place to dine in Lake City, Co. Chef Bruno and his beautiful wife Frederique have created a truly marvelous and romantic restaurant setting. That along with the most excellent food you have ever had the privilege of tasting and a most impressive staff, you are sure to have one of the best dining experiences of your lifetime! I highly recommend booking reservations at this superb restaurant during your adventures in Lake City. My husband and I shared one of the greatest meals of our lives at this timeless restaurant. You will not be disappointed!!! ;o)

“Perfect food. Amazing people. WE WILL BE BACK!!”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

On our way to Bruno's for my wife and I's wedding anniversary, the tread on one of our tires decided to not stay. We rolled into bruno's going 2 mph wondering what we were going to do... everyone greeted us very politely, and Bruno and his wife listened to our story and told us not to worry, that they would help us. They helped us to relax when stress was trying to win. The wine was great, the food was picture perfect, and taste bud perfect! And when we were finished eating, Bruno followed us to drop off our vehicle at a tire shop and drove us 15-20 minutes away to where we were staying. NOW THAT IS SERVICE. These are great people, with a great place. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE BEST FOOD. LOOK NO FURTHER.

“When the food's this good, you have to know how to play, Bruno's game”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

This is a gem in a tiny town that serves some of the best food you'll ever eat. That is if you can get in, or if Bruno is in the mood to handle walk ins (we've done this once successfully, walk in with a smile and gratitude, but not recommended) The closed sign is on many evenings but if you call and set a reservation and sound like someone who appreciates what art Bruno creates, you are likely to get in. We've eaten here numerous times, almost every time we are in Lake City, and always walked away wowed by the experience. Bruno's Gravlax is amazing! And I don't usually even like salmon but this is a taste sensation. We were on a budget this trip and went for two of the least expensive items on the menu and both of us raved about our choices. Bruno and Frederika can be as nice or as rude as you want. Come in with an attitude and you will get it back. Come in with a smile, open to a new experience and excited to see why so many give this 5 stars and you will walk away with a night to remember.

“Special Kind of Rude”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 via mobile

Exited our car in the parking lot, greeted by a man, apparently the owner, who said they weren't open (open sign on), said we needed reservations (no one there) and it was an "upscale" restaurant. Clearly, my son and I were not fit customers. My son is a 33 year old attorney and I'm retired. We live in this area and have never been treated like this at a business. Obviously, never again.
