This is superb regional food served by waitstaff from many nations. I you go early in the season, it is closed in winter, but very patient because the staff is perfecting their English but that is fun, too. I think they are chosen for their friendliness. The food is exquisite-any of it and you can have a drink at your table or in the indoor/outdoor bar. I you are new to the area, ask for a window table so you have a beautiful view of the deer and wild horses. If you are from here, take a table by the wall, we love our tourists. Some nights there are special talks downstairs so go eat early, then go learn something new afterwards.

For convenience, the Metate room was only a short walk from our room across the parking lot. The views were very nice. The food was good, but not many choices were available.
Since the end of season was nearing the Metate room was only open for dinner. It would have been nice to be able to have breakfast there, too.

Enjoyed Mesa Verde and Far View Lodge. Good Hikes, clean air...Had breakfast Metate Room restaurant and wife and I mistakenly paid for breakfast twice....upon returning and inquiring with waiter (doesn't remember) or manager (shrugged shoulders)...it was our mistake. We accept responsibility...but, could have used a litle help or heads up by somebody.

We had a great dning experience that included local, seasonal food, Colorado whiskey and wines. Pricey, but worth the money as the food was very creative and in a nice setting. My only critique is that our waiter seemed to really struggle with the amount of tables he had.

We were seated by a window with a view. Our waiter helped make our dining experience even more enjoyable. The food was a little pricey, but very good. The menu made notations of which foods were local to the area.
