  • "We eat at Eolus and before when it was Cosmo as often as we can, one of our favorite places to go. On this night, our server was awesome, however the service was slow, we finally asked about the status of our food when we noticed several tables around us who came in after us enjoying their food.. One of our orders was a crab stuffed chicken breast, which was sent back as there was a trace of crab.. it returned satisfactory. This night will not deter us from returning.."

  • "Tuesday night proved to be occupied but not crowded. We had a group of 7 and used it for an informal business meeting. It fit the bill perfectly. The lack of the traditional "family atmosphere" was a very nice change. I would say that this is appropriate for romantic evenings and fine dining connoisseurs. Pricing suggests saving for special occasions."

  • "The food was exceptional. Scallop appetizer was amazing as was the deconstructed chopped salad, sushi, quinoa entree and...They have a very moderately priced bar menu which contains some of the best burgers in Colorado. Wine list had a few gems and was well priced, service was excellent, ambiance was nice. Our table couldn't have been happier."

  • "Our dinner was a combination wedding anniversary and anniversary of getting through a major health crisis. Food was very good, and well presented. Our server was pleasant but seemed a little distracted. Overall a very good experience with, as expected."

  • "The reason that we stopped going to the old Cosmo's was due to the poor service. When we tried Eolus several months ago, the food was fantastic as well as the service. However, our last experience was very disappointing. The service was terrible. The restaurant was not that busy for a Sunday night. There was no ice in the water, our primary waiter was busy with another table, and service was poor. At least the food was great."

  • "Our dinner at Eolos was good. At first, our service was very, very slow but it improved throughout the evening. Each of our entrees was of high quality and the wine list was great. We selected an excellent Portuguese red and were pleased. The hostess, who was from Tulsa, was super friendly and helpful."

  • "We requested to be seated on the roof top and it helped make the dining experience that much better. the food was great, the service was good and the menu was full of locally sourced products which goes a long way with us. I had the James Ranch Lobster Burger and was blown away by the flavor, one of the best burgers I have ever eaten"

  • "I was looking for a romantic first date and heard about Eolus. I made a reservation and had a wonderful time! They were very friendly and put the flowers I ordered on the table. By the time we got to the table everything was perfect. Great weather, food, service, and beautiful view on the rooftop! I have already recommended Eolus to some friend and hope to go back there soon!"

  • "Our food was excellent - great salads and entrees. I had the filet and it was one of the best I have had. My only concern would be the price -- it is quite expensive. Even without drinks, our bill for 4 adults was around $50 a person. That being said, the portions are very generous. I would go back for a special occasion."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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.)"

  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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. "

  • "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."

  • "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. "

  • "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. "

  • "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."

  • "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 "
