Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "A great "new" find in Steamboat. We were pleasantly delighted on every account and will be back often."

  • "Aurum will rival the two cornerstones of Steamboat higher end dining, Bistro CV and Cafe Diva. The food was excellent. The wine list both interesting and exceptional, the food was outstanding, and the service was warm, engaging, and Colorado laid back. This is a great new restaurant."

  • "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. "

  • "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. "

  • "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."

  • "We are always eager to try new restaurants and Aurum did not disappoint. My husband and I were well attended by our waiter, Nick, and enjoyed a lovely conversation with Phillips, the owner. The menu provided plenty of inspired choices and our food was delicious. We look forward to returning, especially over the summer months when we can be seated outside on the beautiful deck overlooking the river. While we did not stop at the bar, it is attractive and has a great vibe."

  • "This is the third restaurant in this building during my 25 years in Steamboat. Until now, this outstanding location has had underwhelming food at best. Aurum is good and borders on excellent. We had the Heirloom tomato/buratta salad which was excellent despite early season tomatoes. The pork chop and halibut special were especially good with complex flavors. While the restaurant is proud of their crab cake, I found it only average despite the fact that the Cajun mustard was awesome. The crab cake just does not compare well to those from the eastern seaboard of the US. That being said, the service is friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. You can tell that the chef and owner are pros and will have a very successful run in Steamboat."

  • "We enjoyed a lovely dinner. The food and service were very good. Everyone was friendly. It was especially nice that most things on the menu were gluten-free."

  • "We were treated very well here, and our hostess seated us at a better table that we were booked for, one right by the windows with a great view of the river. The food was really good. The waitress recomended an off the menu special, beef stew which sounded good on a cold night. The problem was that she forgot to mention that it was hot. Very hot (not sure why a chef would put that much cayenne pepper in anything - you cant taste any other flavors when its that hot). When I mentioned it, she promptly whisked it away and brought me the Korean bbq ribs which were delicious. Everyone else in our party of 4 said their meals were excellent."

  • "Items that we wanted they ran out of at our table. We were a large party (25) so it was to be expected but, sigh, that did not curtail our disappointment."
