  • "Exceptional food, service and experience. Everything was perfect for our 20th anniversary dinner and we highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "We've eaten at the Grouse Mountain Grill many times, and the food is always great. This time we had the unfortunate issue that the hostess wanted to seat us at the tables along the wall, with bench seating on one side and chairs facing a wall on the other. We had made reservations ahead of time thru Open Table, and when we arrived, the restaurant was 90% empty. We were told that the other tables were reserved, but apparently not for us! We asked to eat outside, and were warned it might rain, but we preferred that to having half our party facing a wall. Food was excellent as usual. We wish we had been treated like the loyal customers that we are. And, as we left having spent a lot of money and time there, two good tables were still empty."

  • "Our dinner at the Grouse Mountain Grill was truly exquisite. A table for two in front of open doors looking out on the mountains was the perfect setting for a perfect evening. I had the smoked duck - the best I've ever eaten anywhere. And the foie gras sausage was an excellent complement along with haricort verts. My wife had the pretzel encrusted pork chop that was as delicious as it looked. The service from our server, Shaena, was terrific. Chef David prepares unique cuisine that is precisely paired with the mountain environment. We hope you enjoy this venue as much as did we."

  • "Salad special was picked that day from chef's garden. The goat gnocchi was one of. The best gnocchi we've had. The bison short rib was tender and fall off the bone. Service was exceptional, including a visit from the chef. We foodie around the world and this restaurant and its food deserves the accolades."

  • "We chose Grouse Mountain to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and to eat before 6:15 pm so as to have their "Early Diner's Special". I've eaten at other Beaver Creek restaurants and even at Grouse once before. Bottom line is that our portions were tiny. My girlfriend got the grouper, and I the pork chop. While they tasted great, her portion was about 3 ounces and mine half the standard order size. The menu says nothing about partial portions. In fact, it says "Choose a Main". If the Early Diners is half portion, then it's a worse price actually ordering a half portion of the main. We mention the tiny size of her grouper to the waitress, who says "well, it is a tasting menu". Simply not true. We had great wine but were highly disappointed"

  • "after a string of bad service experiences several years ago, we cut back on visits here. the food has always been outstanding so we decided to try it a few more times. we have been very pleasantly surprised. now the service matches the food -- friendly, knowledgeable and no longer pretentious. each of our last three experiences have been very enjoyable. keep up the great work."

  • "This is probably our favorite restaurant in Beaver Creek! Our server was Rachel and she was terrific! We had the duck and the pretzel coated pork chop. Both were delicious. My husband had the lobster appetizer and said it was excellent. Definitely a must when you visit Beaver Creek."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "My wife and I last visited the Grouse Mountain Grill a couple of years ago, and couldn't wait to get back. They did not disappoint!!! They had a prix fixe Spring Tasting Menu with any appetizer, entree and dessert on the menu. I highly recommend the cavatelli (squid ink, chorizo, chiles, crab) - it sounds a bit daring, but was superb. The lobster appetizer was a very close 2nd! Our entrees were the beef tenderloin (my wife loved the potato pave') and the bison short ribs (brined and braised for for 24 hours!). Desserts were wonderful - flourless chocolate cake (you could taste the fresh mint in the mint ice cream!),and the rhubarb (crustless cheesecake, rhubarb sauce, rhubarb bar, candied ginger). A great dining experience!"

  • "My boyfriend and I received a gift card to this place for Christmas and our birthdays are the same week so we decided to save it for the occasion and it was more than worth it! We had a lovely table with a candle and there was an iPad for us to look at the wine list on. The waiter was so friendly, knowledgable, and never once did we feel rushed to make a decision. The food was beyond amazing and everything was served as a piece of art. I had the pineapple Mojito and I want the recipe for my personal collection. The food came out fairly quickly which I was not expecting. Of course, it was pricey, but we were lucky to have a gift card. I highly recommend this place. Everything about it was perfect!!"

  • "We first heard of Grouse Mountain Grill sometime years before our visit. Having become acquainted with some of the people who helped to open it and when searching for a place to celebrate a recent event in our lives, we chose Grouse Mountain Grill for the purpose. WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED! In fact, we commented that it could become a regular destination when we are in Beaver Creek. The dining room an just opened a night or two before for the summer 2014 season and they were featuring their Spring Tasting Menu. We selected the Crab appetizer, the Asparagus Soup, the Beef Tenderloin, with added sides of Crispy Polenta and Glazed Carrots. All were perfectly made and presented with flare! Dessert? A hit as well: Apple Bread Pudding! YUM"

  • "The food was delicious but the restaurant did not seem intimate more like a modern business. The menu had a 3 course fixed price with quite a few choices. Salads could be substituted for desert. The bison short ribs were delicious. Our wine was excellent but very pricey. At least twice as expensive as in a wine store. If you are on a business credit card it might make sense. The staff was very courteous and our car was waiting at the door when we left. "

  • "As always, the pretzel crusted pork chop was fabulous! Carlos, our server, was a delight. The only thing we truly missed was Tony G. He makes the dining experience complete with his music and personality."

  • "This place is pricey but our meal was outstanding. There are lots of gourmet restaurants in BeaverCreek-Vail Area to choose from. If you are looking for fine dining, you won't be disappointed if this is your choice. Husband had trout and I had their pasta - we ended up splitting both meals because we each wanted what the other One was eating. My husband said this was his favorite meal while we were on vacation. We were in BC for five Weeks so we ate out a lot!"

  • "We came with our four adult children and were fortunate enough to have Duffy as our server. Duffy could and did make every dish sound so delicious that we struggled to make our dinner choices. Three of us had the ultra delicious bison short ribs, everyone thought their choice was the best. Duffy rhapsodized about the desserts, but we didn't find them as rave worthy. When I only ate the peaches from mine, Duffy noticed and removed it from the bill. My only complaint, if you will, is that the wine list, while filled with some terrific wines, is also loaded with terrific (and by that I mean high) prices. This is a minor complaint, however, given the quality of the experience. We will definitely be back and hope Duffy is still there!"

  • "Our experience at Grouse Mountain Grill was so good we decided to eat there a second time during our stay. The atmosphere is elegant, but not swanky. Try the pork belly starter. It melts in your mouth. I got the elk and my husband had the bison short ribs. Both were excellent. The peach dessert was out of this world, too! Our waiter was awesome. Overall, one of our favorite restaurants in Beaver Creek."

  • "This was our second trip to Beaver Creek and to the Grouse Mountain Grill. The food is just amazing and the service is top notch. They also have good bread and great desserts. It's pricey but worth it. Also, the apps and entrees are a good size. Sometimes in upscale restaurants the portions are small...but not at the Grouse Mountain Grill! It's definitely worth a visit if you're in the area!"

  • "The food here is worth every penny and legitimately creative and exciting -- a contrast to a lot of the restaurants in the Beaver Creek area where you're paying simply for the location."

  • "After reading the reviews we were really looking forward to this Meal and invited a client. we all ordered different items and only the pork chops got a thumbs up. All the other items were over salty and mediocre at best. We will not return."

  • "We are from NYC, and have high eating standards, and we enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The service was excellent, and the food was even better. Smart though extensive wine list that would make anyone happy, and we really enjoyed our meal, esp the appetizers - lobster marscapone, kale salad. We were only in vail for a couple days, and were so impressed by the excellent food that we had the whole vacation."

  • "This was our second family dinner at Grouse Mountain Grill and it dd not disappoint. We all ordered different appetizers and main dishes. All were excellent. But, most notable were the desserts. Apparently they have a new pastry chef and he/she delivers top quality. We had the apple bread pudding, flour-less chocolate cake, and the carrot cake. All were very impressive. The ice cream that came with them was also among the best I have had. This is a pricey restaurant, but it delivers the goods; worth going if you can afford it."

  • "We have dined most everywhere at Beaver Creek and the Vail Valley over 23 years, including a number of times at Grouse Mountain Grill. This was the worst dining experience EVER! The food was terrible: lobster marscapone was gloppy and tasted like canned crab mixed with melted ricotta. The beet salad was bitter and tasteless. The eggplant agnoletti was inedible -- salted to Dead Sea levels and unattractive beyond belief. The "crispy" duck breast -- the chef's favorite -- was so tough and fibrous, I could barely cut it. The meat was coated with soft fat that easily could have been crisped on an infrared burner, but wasn't, making the eating experience even worse. Fair service at a restaurant that is easily the most expensive in Beaver Creek."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "The grill always manages to find an interesting way to refine a classic dish or present a menu item that is so intriguing you can't help but order it. The menu ranges from Colorado specials from local sources of Elk, bison, and trout to Classic European. It is a must stop and dine site in the Beaver Creek area and worth a diversion if need be!"
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "While most restaurants in Beaver Creek have become lazy and content to serve mediocre food due to the massive amount of tourist, there are still a few really good ones. Grouse Mountain Grill is one them. Probably the best in BC. Nice touch with the wine list on an ipad. Dinner was fantastic, start to finish. Great atmosphere and I really enjoyed having desert in the bar while listening to not overly loud live music. Had a great time!"
