    At least twice a year, we eat at the Couloir and we have never been disappointed. Each time we have tried something different and/or tried the wine pairing and have enjoyed everything. The wine pairing is exceptional, and unique. We feel it is worth the extra amount over ordering one bottle for the entire meal.

    We had a wonderful dinner at Couloir, celebrating our anniversary. Service was great and the food was delicious. In my Open Table reservation, I mentioned it was our anniversary and we would love a table with a view. I didn't expect anything of it, but they gave us a corner table at the window and brought champagne as soon as we sat down. Those touches made our dinner/anniversary that much more enjoyable that they read my reservation and helped us celebrate.

    This was our second time at Couloir - both times have been on our vacations to the Tetons. Our only wish is that we lived in Jackson Hole and could come much more often. Not only is the view at 9050 feet breathtaking, but the cuisine and ambiance are outstanding. Our waiter was excellent and Mike, the sommellier, was superb. In fact, Mike really impressed me when he commented that he recalled us from last year and then proved it by citing the exact bottle of burgundy which I had ordered. Impressive! Altogether, this was a memorable and perfect evening.

    I gave this restaurant an excellent because it is everything other restaurants are not. The only way to get there is by taking a Gondola ride up the mountain. The location is 9000' above sea level, the view of Jackson Hole is remarkable. The food is fresh and local and beautifully prepared. The restaurant is smaller so reservations are a must. Ask for a window seat. It's expensive but a place where locals dine on special occasions. We've celebrated our wedding anniversary there 3 times.

    Stunning valley view from approximately 7,000 feet which is suitably matched by an excellent choice of creative and expertly prepared appetitizers and entrees. Desserts were a minor disappointment (size as well as chocolate options) but the complimentary able car ride up and down the mountain was another unique and memorable touch.

    What a fantastic place to enjoy a meal!! The service was excellent! The view spectacular! The food not so great! My husband & I both ordered the prosciutto wrapped halibut. The fish was dry and the prosciutto made it too salty. We both enjoyed our starters/appetizers, I had the prawns, my husband the smoked salmon. The second course was forgettable, my soup was tasteless, my husband enjoyed the peaches in his salad, not much else. The desserts were just OK.

    We (being myself, my best friend and my parents) went to the Couloir for dinner this past week and it was fantastic. At first, we were hesitant about the four course menu, but the waiter assured us that the platters would intrigue our tastebuds but not be overwhelming in terms of portion size. We went with his advice and each enjoyed different selections of courses. We did not find a single one that was sub-par. They were accommodating to gluten dietary restrictions and cooked our meals as ordered (the steak was a perfect medium rare). We topped the night off with three samplings of gourmet desserts, all of which were outstanding. We look forward to another amazing night overlooking the valley at the Couloir.

    The four course meal was delicious. My son and I had the lightly smoked bison tenderloin. We all enjoyed each course a great deal. Service was attentive and friendly. The view, of course, is fantastic. Get here early for a drink on the Deck, the very casual spot on the first floor. At least, take some time to explore the views and take some photos. I would go there for the food alone, but the view makes it even better. The gondola ride is a lot of fun too.

    I had been there for lunch before and it was affordable. This dinner, although wonderful, was unduly expensive. We spent $250 with NO WINE! I think their information on OpenTable should reflect this one is "over the top" expensive. This cost us more than any other restaurant in the past, even those rated as high priced by your ratings.

    Couloir is truly one of the finest restaurants you could find anywhere, even in a major metropolitan city. The bonus is that you're in Jackson Hole and you're dining atop the Jackson Hole Mountain with a panoramic view overlooking the entire valley. The prix fixe menu is reasonably priced for the quality of food you receive and the four courses are generous to satisfy even a very hungry appetite. The desserts are a fixed trio of bite-sized goodies that change by the week on average, and are deliciously prepared by the very talented pastry chef from Switzerland, Chef Rekli. She tops off every meal brilliantly. Couloir is not to be missed.

    Put this restaurant at the top of your list. Granted the mountain vistas are spectacular, but it is the service, wine, and food that steal the show. The Sommelier was a highlight. He paired exceptional wines with each course but made it even more fun educating us and letting us sample all kinds of new taste sensations. Overall, the service was special but not pretentious. Each course of food was an exciting and wonderful taste sensation and stood above the finest restaurants in New York. We will make sure and return on our next visit to Jackson Hole.

    Our best friends were here for a few weeks visiting us. Couloir was top of our list on their Anniversary celebration. It was a super fine evening. Food, as always, top drawer. But, best of all was our assigned staff...and those not directly serving us. The delivery execution and staff selection/training when layered on top of the food quality/innovation makes for one of the best evenings in the valley.

    Took my mother up the hill for dinner here. Was seated early without effort, service is top-notch and the food was over the top! While sitting at the window overlooking the entire Teton valley below, treaded to 4 course dinner with extra course fro the chef. Michael the Sommelier (who is a fellow IWG Alumni) made sure our wine was perfect for our meal. Truly one of the best meals either one of us has had. When you visit Jackson Hole, you will be sorry if you dont find a way to take in all this place and these people have to offer!

    We had an okay time at Couloir. Our table was toward the back of the dining area and our view was only okay. The food was okay to good, but certainly not what I'd call fine dining. It felt more like a meal you'd get at a wedding or other large catered function, only with more attitude from the servers. I know that a lot of times the prices are going to be inflated for the view and the touristy nature of places like this, so I wasn't too upset about the cost, but I won't be coming back on my next trip to Teton Village. Perhaps we would have been more impressed if we'd had a better view - we probably would have been better off enjoying the view from outside and saving the fine dining for another time/place.

    I was skeptical as most ski mountain-top restaurants are sub-par, but Couloir far exceeded my expectations! The spectacular views from the gondola on the ride up are enough to make this experience lovely on its own, but the menu, wine, and service make the restaurant the best there is. The entire menu was perfection-definitely go with the wine pairing, it made the experience more memorable and the sommelier was so knowledgeable and had great selections. Make a reservation now and visit this gem!

    The chef prepared a fascinating set of choices. Three in our party of six chose the Bison. All three said that it was "best ever". Two chose the chef's wine selection which was excellent, served with each course. The tenderloin, halibut, and eggplant steak were also terrific. Service was attentive and helpful.
