  • "This was my second time in three weeks at Chimney Park, celebrating special birthdays. The first was an intimate for two, which was perfect. The second was shared with family, which was a completely different experience but fabulous. In fact, for the latter celebration, we added four more people at the last minute, which was kindly accommodated. The hostess, our lovely server, James and everyone looked after us and the food, as always, was outstanding. Thank you for a brilliant evening!"

  • "Had the Tasting Menu with Wine Pairing. Superb! All four courses were wonderful!!! It's been our special occasion spot for years and years. We'll continue to dine there regularly."

  • "The chef's tasting menu and wine pairing is phenomenal-- it's an absolute delight for the senses!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We have been wanting to try the chef's tasting menu for awhile and it did not disappoint. It begins with sharing your likes, dislikes and allergies with the wait staff. Then sit back and be prepared to be amazed. We were given 5 courses, each paired with the perfect wine. Every course is like Christmas, though be sure to wear your Thanksgiving pants because you will devour every last bite. It's a pricey affair ($200 ish for two) but a must-experience even if you only have it just once."

  • "We celebrated my 50th birthday at Chimney Park. Everything was lovely - our server, James, the wine sommelier and our hostess. The food was spectacular. We asked for a few changes to our meal and the chef was very kind to oblige. I asked for a special table and we were given a great spot. We had an amazing evening. Thank you!"

  • "This was our first time to Chimney Park. Was a bit worried with the brashness of the hostess when we arrived. Then we opted to sit outside, as it was a nice evening. After sitting for a few, it became apparent there was absolutely no ambiance outside - with the exception of listening to the cooks in the kitchen working. Made a mention to our waitress and she turned the music. Then the food started to arrive. It was heaven! The food made us forget all of the questions we had when we walked in. If you like good food, this is the place. We did the Chef's four course meal. Ate and greatly enjoyed many things we would never have ordered. Absolutely outstanding food."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Every time we go to Chimney Park Bistro, we have a wonderful meal. Their wine list is by far the best in Northern Colorado and the waiters know the list well. The food is amazing as well. The foie gras is impeccable. I highly recommend this restaurant. If you are into food, you will have a wonderful time. If you are not, it is worth exploration. You may become a foodie!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We had their 4 course tasting menu with matching wines, was wonderful. Our waiter made it fun and exciting, each course was a creation from the chef that was explained by our waiter completely. Best dinner including the food, wine, and service we've had."

It was without a doubt the best one ever, wish we had been able to spend each and every wedding anniversary at Chimney Park! The food was incredible from the appetizer to the dessert. Highly recommend this gem tucked away in Windsor old town."

  • "Had a wonderful evening last week, celebrating our anniversary. The crab cake was SO out of this world that I actually regretted that we had decided to share that and tuna appetizer between 4 of us! The new roasted salad had such a beautiful presentation, and it was delicious with the scent of fragrant truffle oil tickling my nose. The scallops were superb as usual, not overcooked. Lemon trifle completed my perfect dinner and by then, I was glad I split the appetizer :-) My husband had bison and it was really tender. I just love Chef Jason's creations there! If you want to take someone special to dinner, Chimney Park is the place to go. It is a lovely restaurant!"

  • "I've been to Chimney Park many times during my 2 years in Windsor, and I'm repeatedly delighted to find this spectacular restaurant in Windsor's quaint downtown. Fresh, local, and delicious food with an outstanding wine list combine to make a restaurant that would excel in any large city. The lamb is a personal favorite, but I've never had a meal that I wouldn't order again and again. Highly recommended!"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "This was out first time back to Chimney Park Bistro in several years, and it didn't disappoint for our anniversary! Delicious food, great service, we never felt rushed, wine list was amazing and the waitress, Kate, provided us with many options and advice. Will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "This is a favorite spot for special occasions. I've always been impressed with the food and presentations. The wait staff is a bit pretentious and needs to loosen up a bit, however they are very attentive and knowledgeable. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Chimney Park was responsive to our last minute changes to expand the size of our party. Service was exceptional, food was delicious. The outside seating looked inviting...too bad it was raining. We were celebrating a special occasion. The restaurant did not disappoint."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The three of us ordered the tasting menu. No one dish among the 12 was like the others, and every single juxtaposition of flavors was interesting and spot-on. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Dined at Chimney Park on a weekend night recently. While the food was very good and the wine we enjoyed was fine, the service was thin. It was slow from start in that it took nearly 10 minutes to order drinks after being seated and it seemed that every step was equally drawn out. Don't mind a slow pace at a nice place, but this was a lack of attention. Like I say, everything else was great, so perhaps just an off evening perhaps short staffed."

  • "Chimney Park will not disappoint! Food, wine and staff always the best. Worth the drive out to Windsor any time. "

  • "The food was very good, well-presented and prepared. I would recommend this restaurant to the most snobbish foodie. It was that good."
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "Three of us had the 4 course Chef's choice option and I had the NY strip bison steak. Every meal was fantastic! The Chef's choice is great fun as you don't know what you are going to be served, and nobody at the table gets the same meal. You tell the server about any allergies you have as well as your food preferences and the chef does all the rest. The restaurant is fairly expensive and well worth every penny. Definitely recommend this place for special occasions."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "We go to Chimney Park for most of our family's special occasions, and we are always impressed by the entire experience. The various courses are always delicious, and seem to have just the right amount of creativity. The staff is always helpful, but not overbearing. Also, the atmosphere is nice, but not pretentious or overdone. This is a great place for a very nice meal!"

  • "Overall, a wonderful dining experience. My partner and I both did the tasting menu with wine pairing. Pricey but fun for celebrating. Each dish was well thought out and the chefs clearly have a passion for great food. Highly recommend to foodies and those looking to celebrate a special occasion. "

  • "All the food was delicious and well prepared. The Lobster Bisque was OUTSTANDING, with a unique presentation. Another favorite was the Bison Steak, which was very tender and cooked perfectly. The extensive wine list is reasonably priced and served with grace, as was the entire meal. The dining room is surrounded with interesting art, which changes often. This is a special dining experience."
