    We enjoyed our evening at your restaurant very much. Everyone was happy with what they ordered. We enjoyed sitting outside since we are from Houston and do not get to do that very often here in the summer.

    Though the kitchen did a very nice job with our meal, the service was terrible. The bartender had to wait tables, since there were only 2 waitstaff - our waiter was very inexperienced. We didn't ever get the first course we ordered. We have eaten at Cuvee every time we visit the RFV for the last 6 years and have never before had this experience. I hope they get their waitstaff problem worked out!

    First ate at Cuvee when they were in Tucson. When they moved to Colorado 8 years ago, it was a loss for our city. We were glad to rediscover them in Basalt, Colorado (by accident). Food was even better than we had remembered.

    Cuvee can compete with Aspen restaurants in many ways - try the Wild Mushroom Cakes over Avocado Pesto and Roasted Red Pepper Coulis for starters - fabulous! I had the pork chops, also very nicely done. The wine flights are generous and interesting, and wine by the bottle is significantly cheaper than Aspen for good quality wines.

    Always great service. The food is fabulous. The carmelized pumpkin soup is so tasty. It is in a great little setting, where in the summer we sit outside and have appetizers and a glass of wine. We love to go there on special occassions like Valentines Day, Mother's Day and this year Christmas Eve. We have taken visiting family members to Cuvee and they also enjoyed everything about it.

    Waited a long time to be seated, no one at the door. Finally seated by a nice waitress and then forgotten at the table for a long time. We were enjoying the great view on the patio so that was ok. Our waiter was very nice once he got there. We waited a long time for our food, the waiter kept apologizing and bringing us baskets of bread, again we didn't mind- the view kept us happy. The food finally came, linquini bolognese. It looked very good, it seemed quite salty to us but we were still happy, again the view. If this was not an off night, I would suggest not going expecting fast service. Sit outside and that will make up for it.

    Very nice and diverse menu. Prices are reasonable for the quality. All 4 entrees our table ordered were delicious. The flights of wine (3 samples) are really fun. Cuvee is a great find in Basalt and we'll go back. Every bit as good as an Aspen restaurant and worth the drive.

    It always looks so magical but the food is mediocre at best. Had the caprese salad and the fresh mozzarella cheese was like chalk. The mushroom soup was pretty good. The wine list is great. Our server was really struggling and we had long waits and didn't quite get what we ordered. I had to ask the server for silver ware, bread plates and bread which was supposed to come with our meal. All in all, not the best dining experience.

    I recommend this restaurant highly! We were staying in Snowmass and had been to a couple restaurants in Aspen but decided to change course one night and head for Basalt. We picked it off the internet and crossed our fingers. The dinner exceeded our expectations in every aspect of food quality, service, wine list and value.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 3/14/2012
    Cuvee is in the charming town of Basalt about 20 minutes from the crush that can be downtown Aspen during high ski season. It was a welcome warm spot with a view of the town nestled in the hills. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal - highlights were a roasted garlic starter spread on flatbread, a mushroom-topped steak, and an orzo pasta with a poblano sauce. The restaurant had a friendly crowd of old and young, possibly heavy on the locals. I always take that as a good sign.

    Cuvee had been recommended to us because of it's outstanding food. My husband and I went for our anniversary hoping for a romantic night out. It was much more casual than expected, we dined outside on the patio. It wasn't exactly what I was hoping for at first(I was expecting a more fine dining experience)but the longer we stayed we loved the vibrant atmosphere, the food really was great and we ended up running into some friends who were locals! I would highly recommend the Wild Mushroom Cakes for an appetizer, I had the Alaskan Halibut w/Ancho Citrus Crust and my husband had the Green Curry Vegetables with Mixed Seafood (his was to-die-for! Nice and spicy!)Our server was very attentive without being overbearing! Can't wait to go again!

    This small, downtown Basalt restaurant is great for food and wine lovers alike. Pairings are suggested for each dish, or you can choose a "wine flight" to taste several different wines in a category. The food was excellent. We started with the sweet potato soup--very good, but spicy. We then ordered the strip steak with horseradish mashed potatoes and the duck with cherry sauce and basil mashed potatoes. Both were excellent. The restaurant area was uncrowded (Saturday night), and the adjacent bar area was lively, but unobtrusive. We will be back.

The restaurant was a little noisy, but it was a Friday night and so to be expected.
