Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I really enjoyed our first trip to Aurum this week. The building renovation was done really well. The design of the restaurant is contemporary and inviting. The food matches that description. The menu has the required variety and the preparation and flavors of everything we ate was very good."

  • "They have an excellent sommelier ! And the service was outstanding--unusual for a new restaurant. The sommelier replaced our rather expensive bottle of wine that was very faintly "corked" without a blink. Good wine list!"

  • "A must !! My personal favorite. On the Yampa with a nice large patio with very cool umbrella's. Varied menu that is wonderful. Phil is the manager that we met . Susie and I had both lunch and dinner ! The Chicken Corn Chowder is to die for! Excellent happy hour also."

  • "Aurum replaces a long standing comfortable family restaurant. Aurum is a smart, stylish restaurant making good use of their location, serving dishes that both look and taste great. As the summer evening chilled, they rolled back the awnings and brought out the heaters which really enhanced our outdoor experience under the stars and besides the rushing river. Our server was warm, friendly and attentive. First rate and first class all around."

  • "My husband and I went to Aurum for a date night. We had a table looking out over the river. Our server was genuinely enthusiastic about the food and when he overheard I was thinking about the striped bass, told me there was one left and asked if I wanted to save it. Food was delicious and innovative. A great place for foodies."

  • "Everything about our dining experience at Aurum was fantastic. The service was friendly and attentive but not annoying. The food was wonderful! We had the calamari which was light and served on a bed of arugula. The tomato salad was great. Two of us shared it which was perfect. The filet dinner was a generous portion and so flavorful. The fettucini with summer vegetables was light but the sauce was flavorful. We could not resist the creme du chocolate pot with salted caramel mousse. All 4 of us had to get it since no one was willing to share. It was amazing! We will definitely return the next time we are in Steamboat!"

  • "Maybe the best combination of food and service in Routte County. We have been in Steamboat Springs since Jume 26th and I think we and our family and friends have probably had 8-10 meals (lunch & Dinner together during that time period. No other restaurant have we been to more than 3 times!"

  • "Steamboat Springs surprisingly has some outstanding fine dining restaurants. Aurum has already placed itself in the top 5. A little more fine tuning should allow it to move up a notch or two. The food and wine selections were very good with some unique and tasty items. Food was properly prepared for our party of four except the wonderful cut of pork chop was over cooked. Fortunately, the delicious sauce with it helped cover up the error in cooking. Pricing is high, but about on par with other area fine dining restaurants. The restaurant facility itself is quite attractive and its location on the Yampa River that runs through downtown Steamboat is fabulous for both outside and inside dining. Wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable."

  • "Second time for dinner at Aurum. We sat outside. The sun was glaring in our face and the bugs were biting. So next time we will be indoors. There was also a gentleman playing the guitar and singing for a little bit. The speakers could be turned down a bit. It was difficult to talk to people at the table with the music blaring. Could maybe use umbrellas tilted to keep the afternoon sun from baking the customers. The service and the food were excellent! Tried the tenderloin for dinner and the muscles for appetizers. Mouth watering. Always enjoy the great food here."

  • "This was our first time in and as locals we were very happy to have this restaurant in our town. The food was delicious and we will be coming back."

  • "What's not to love? Sitting along the river with great drinks and tasty appetizers was sublime. We moved on to dinner with a nice bottle of Adelsheim Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley that was a perfect pairing for our salmon. The salmon was perfect with a nice mix of flavor within the fish accented by a sauce with some nice spice. As always the staff was great with just the right amount of personal attention from Lee, Jon and Phil the owner."

  • "A great new addition to Steamboat's dining choices. Service was attentive and knowledgeable. Our food was great - the calamari was superb - light and crisp, and the caprese salad was divine. We were eating light that night so had the pasta, which everyone loved, in order to save room for the fantastic desserts. Pretty spot on river, tasteful minimalist decor. We will be in Steamboat for the next month (and back for the winter) and we will definitely return to try more of the menu."

  • "Aurum was a great eating experience. Started with heirloom tomato/burrata salad which was outstanding. Chilled romaine salad also very good. Beef and crab cakes were the dinners we chose--delicious. Good wine choices. Service was very good."

  • "We loved it. The food was great, and we especially liked the fact that we could talk to each other without shouting over a high noise level. Calm and relaxing with great views of the Yampa."

  • "A little rough around the edges, but pointed in the right direction."

  • "The food was quite good except for the tuna ceviche which was tasteless. The service was attentive but not overly so and our server was very cheerful and pleasant. The outdoor seating can't be beat. It's right on the river and has huge umbrellas to keep you in the shade on hot summer days and evenings. It's a little on the pricey side especially for outdoor, resort dining. I have heard that it has a great happy hour also."

  • "This restaurant has a chance but the service was terrible. We were the first 2 people to be seated in the dining room. We asked for a different table. We were told that they were all taken by reservations. When we left an hour later, only 2 additional tables were taken. We were provided a happy hour discount pricing and appetizer list too. When we asked the server for some items, he told us that he didn't think that happy hour prices were still available (30 minutes after the restaurant opened). We asked again and received the items. We were never informed about any dinner specials. We later heard another waiter giving great detail about the specials and the restaurant in general. We definitely got the wrong waiter."

  • "We were thrilled to try Aurum last week. The food was fantastic and the wine list was creative and great. We're from San Francisco and have the opportunity to eat at wonderful restaurants there and in Napa often. Aurum is right up there!"

  • "We had a large group for dinner and sat outside - wonderful that they could accommodate us on the patio. We tried almost all of the appetizers on the menu and really enjoyed them - especially the calamari and tuna and the ribs were SO GOOD. Entrees were hit or miss. Pork chop was excellent; lamb burger was just ok; kale salad was blah. Will happily return for drinks and apps."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Food is always wonderful at Aurum. That night tho, there was a table with a group that was so obnoxiously loud we couldn't hear our selves think. We weren't even sitting next to them. It was a chilly night and the windows were open so we were cold. Our waiter was excellent. Our food took FOREVER to come out. Too long of a wait."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Our meal with friends at Aurum along the Yampa River will be long remembered. Service was friendly & professional. Food was expertly prepared. The salmon was innovative and fresh. The Colorado stripped bass was also very fresh and delicious. Will definitely return when in Steamboat."

  • "The host was rude and confrontational. We had a reservation and showed up five minutes early and he seemed very put off by that despite our willingness to sit at the bar and have a drink while they got our table ready. All in all, he seemed irritated to have to be doing his job. It was really quite bizarre. The waitstaff was nothing but helpful, nice, and polite but the kitchen was backed up a bit so service took a long time. No big deal, but they got our order wrong and forgot to bring us silverware. Maybe we just went on the wrong night or maybe they're having growing pains. If they get the machine oiled and running well this will be a great spot. But, they should get rid of the host."

  • "I've been here twice and really want to like it, but it's just too uneven. Some food was good, some not. Wait staff was nice but a bit distracted and busy. I really dislike their policy of not accepting same-day OpenTable reservations after 5pm. I was about to make a reservation today and saw that they were wide open. Logged back onto the OpenTable app after a quick errand and got a message that I should try another restaurant!!! Ha! So, despite the restaurant being fully available, their policy is to have me "Try another restaurant"?....so I did!!!"

  • "The best customer service I have experienced in a long time. Very nice menu and extremely interesting wine choices from a superb winery near Cortez, Colorado. Owner Phillips is fantastic, checking in with customers, explaining food and wine in a way that excites the palate, and does whatever it takes to make the experience memorable. While we were there, we even saw him sweeping the floor. He is totally committed to a great customer experience, and instills that commitment in each of his employees. Great job!"

  • "My husband and I were visiting Steamboat for the first time and wanted to enjoy an evening out. Since we had never been I relied on the reviews I found on Open Table to select a restaurant. There were quite a few to choose from but I chose Aurum because of the fresh and local foods featured on the menu as well as it having an interesting twist to your everyday finds. We had a wonderful experience and will definitely return next time we are visiting."

  • "A group of 8 had dinner at Aurum and was completely and unanimously impressed. From greeting to departure, staff was professional, friendly and welcoming. Food was imaginative; portion sizes reasonable; the chef is to be commended for excellent work. We wish Aurum well and will return when we're next in Steamboat Springs."

  • "In case you are wondering: Aurum is the Latin word for gold. For this restaurant, the title fits perfectly for a world-class restaurant nestled on the Yampa River. The menu design was truly novel, with refreshing flavors and food combinations, it truly will inspire your palate. The staff was helpful and friendly, as well as the sommelier. They all took great care to ensure we were enjoying our meal. The atmosphere was very comfortable, and relaxing. Highly recommended spot for a romantic evening. "

  • "Oustanding in every aspect. Food was incredible, portion size was on the larger size. Share a salad as they are too big to each have one. Smaller menu but something for everyone! Service was spot on, felt more like dining in Europe than the US, Service is not trying to push you out for the next table setting, relaxed but very attentive. "

  • "We enjoyed our dining experience at Aurum a new restaurant in Steamboat. The food and service were excellent. The only concern was the interior restaurant was quite noisy. This was also true of the predecessor restaurant occupying that space. We will go there for dinner later in the summer when we can sit out doors on the deck."
