  • "Great interesting food and wine list so very pricey. About 65 to 75 per person. Worth it just know what you are into."

  • "I treated my husband to a weekend in Durango for his birthday. Dinner at Eolus was amazing! The food was incredible, the staff was friendly and the atmosphere was beautiful. It was perfect for a special night out!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The actual food at Eolus was very tasty, but our server had to many tables and it was very pricey for the amount of food we got. I ordered a full salad with grilled chicken on top and the salad was tiny but tasty, my family ended up giving me portions of their food to balance the meal."

  • "We were recommended this restaurant by a very well known chef in Boulder CO, Kyle Mendenhal of The Kitchens. With this comes high expectations that Eolus completely lives up to. Our meal was delicious and executed amazingly. Loved the Tuna sashimi special, and filet for dinner. Damn that Demi-glacé though!"

  • "A wonderful new addition to better dining in Durango! Good menu selection, and many options for locally sourced items. Salads were just great ( a beet salad and a caesar salad ). For entrees we selected the Filet, and the Prime Rib Two Ways. The Filet was just excellent and accompanied by fresh roasted veggies. The Prime Rib Two ways is really nice, but not your typical Prime Rib .. more like lean steak, but still very a good variation. Nice wine selection, too. Great bar area and upstairs patio dining with a fabulous view. I would recommend reservations!"

  • "Went there for our 50th wedding anniversary. We were very pleased with the experience. Since we were from out of town we relied on internet recommendations for Elous."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The first time I tried to go to Eolus was a month ago. I told the bartender that I wanted to sit outside - an older gentleman (manager?) overheard and said "patio is full". I decided to give Eolus a second chance. I was early for my reservations and went it to ask if I was too early. Andie was VERY welcoming - said that they wouldn't be open for another 6 minutes but to please come in and sit at the bar and she would get my table ready. The bartender - Lauren - talked me into a Thai Martini - yummy. Ashley come over and talked to me about menu items - friendly! My server Chris was excellent! The view was amazing, and the food was great (although I did get ill later - I think I was given the gluten doughnuts instead of the gluten free.)"

  • "Fantastic food as always! Great wine list too! And so accomodating to my daughter's allergies and the man's at the next table which were completely different from hers! Our favorite place for special occasions and early bistro dinners! Check out the rooftop!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Be sure to ask for the bar menu when you dine. From our experience, they don't automatically offer the bar menu which has different items at lower prices. The dinner menu is quite pricy and was unexpected by some of our group. Fortunately someone in our group asked if they had a different menu as the prices on the dinner menu did not seem consistent with the TripAdvisor $$ rating."

  • "Since the new owners took over, food is better, service is much better- we'll be back!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "I new from previous reviews it was going to be a bit pricy, but it was a special occasion. Not disappointed! Very nice dinner after an active day in Durango. Surf and turf, and king salmon was cooked to perfection. I wish I had ordered the full size warm beet salad to share as it was scrumptious. Good choice here! "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We were tucked away in a corner which was perfect for us; it was quiet and very comfortable. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive, but not not to the point of being a bother. We both started with salads that were extremely fresh. He had the mixed salad and commented on the flavorful combinations. I had the warm beet salad. I would say that I typically don't care for goat cheese, but I really enjoy it with this salad. It doesn't have that lingering aftertaste. We then had the pork T-bone that was cooked perfectly. It was a wonderful evening and a real treat. Thank you."

  • "Everything served, cooked to perfection. Some very interesting and unusual wines on the list, strong emphasis on local ingredients on the menu, delightful service and a very relaxing, intimate atmosphere. Will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Menu and wine list were superb. Everything was chef and sommelier driven and paired perfectly. The ambience was quiet and vibrant with people totally enjoying themselves and others around them. It was casual yet very upscale. Loved it and would recommend it to anyone interested in a fine dining experience without the pretentious atmosphere."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Eolus is our favorite dining spots in Durango, hands down. The food is always exceptional and exciting, whether we are trying our favorites or something new. And, the staff treats us as if we are one of their regular customers, remembering us and making us feel special."

  • "Visited Eolus for my wife's Birthday and were greeted warmly. I was expecting to be one of the only tables there when we arrived for our 6:30pm reservation. Other than what looked like a large group reserved, it looked like they were full. The server welcomed us to Eolus and brought us water immediately. The service tempo was great, attended to but not feeling swarmed with good time between courses. Unfortunately, my wife and I can only eat so much, so we split a salad and then got two entrees, as a side note, the server had all the specials memorized and knew the answers to our questions without skipping a beat. Our entrees were great portions and my wife, when we spoke with the Chef just had to hear how they prepared hers. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "I actually ordered the same item (Cobb salad) I last had when the establishment was named Cosmos and it was even better. I think pistachio nuts was the added flavor/texture. My husband had a pork chop that was fabulous too. The lobster dog appetizer was a little disappointing. Very little lobster, mostly breading. I have had better renditions elsewhere. "
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "This location had had several very good restaurants over the past ten years. The menu offers lots of choices. Better than usual menu for children. The service was excellent. We had a delightful waitress. The food came in a timely fashion. "
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "We have eaten here before, both as Cosmopolitan and Eolus. They have really picked up their game. Hanger Steak was exceptional as well as the Warm Beet Salad. I have always liked the sushi here. The wine list has some great gems and our server was knowledgeable."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Finally! A place where the ambiance is warm and comfortable, the food superb, the service great--and we could actually visit over dinner without having to yell at each other. "

  • "We enjoyed cosmos now Eolus for my husbands birthday. Service by Barnie was excellent. The scallop and bacon starter was fantastic. I would have it as an entree next time. Delicious. The gorgonzola mashed potatoes were scrumptious. Hanger steak was good. The beignets were pretty good. The more of them i ate the more i liked them. Would have preferred a creme anglaise instead of the lemon curd. Enjoyable experience "
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "We ate at Eolus for the first time last Saturday night. We were celebrating my daughter's and my mutual birthday, so it was a special occasion. The service was great, and the server was very efficient and pleasant. The food, however, was disappointing. My husband suspected that the steak was a lesser-quality meat than what was advertised. I ordered the sushi special and did not think it particularly tasty. I also needed to add a side dish of rice because the portion was small. We thought the price was higher that the quality warranted. For that reason we will likely not come back."

  • "Food is memorable and well executed with local ingredients. Service was excellent. We were there on a crowded Friday evening and the noise levell was unpleasantly high."

  • "As soon as we walked in the door we were treated well and encourage to enjoy our special evening. With only 3 chances a year to have a really nice dinner we have returned consistently for the exquisite food, wonderfully friendly staff, and to support the connection the restaurant has with community wholesalers. Remaining loyal to locals patrons, producers, and staff means a lot to us."

  • "This is a really nice restuarant, although it is not a $$ restuarant it is a $$$ restuarant."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "It was rated #1 in Durango. So, we tried it. The food was tasty, service a little slow (even when we stated we had an engagement later) so we didn't have time for desert. Items were forgotten. The 1/2 salads were closer to 1/4 salads. Overall price, not too bad. We had 4 people - 2 Entre's, 2 - 1/2 salads, 2 glasses of wine (with a coupon), and one sushi roll = $105.00. Walking out, other plates did look very good."

  • "I was hesitant to go to Eolus because I had a "just okay" meal previously. However, the restaurant had been taken over by a new proprietor and I thought I'd give it a try. It was a wonderful meal and a good experience. I had the surf and turf and loved it! My husband had the seafood combo over capellini and he thought it was excellent too. We would definitely go back!"
