    Tristin, our waiter, did an amazing job of spacing out the delivery of the small plates we ordered. He was helpful in telling us how many to order and deciding the order in which the should be served. The pork belly and Brussel sprouts were our two favorite dishes. Amazing flavors and unique preparations.

    incredibly noisy with happy hour folk. Menu is fabulous for trying new foods and combos combinations. Food and service are great; noise is a big problem. Despite the desire to try a fantastic menu, skip this place if there are drinkers that will ruin you're quiet eve.

    Laundry has a small intimate feel with excellent food and service. The small plates are perfect for sharing and allows you the opportunity to try several dishes. If you are very hungry and prefer larger portions you have that option too.

  • Laundry Cleans Up the Competition!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 10/10/2014
    Laundry was recommended by a foodie friend and she did me no wrong with the rec! Our dining experience commenced with some excellent old school cocktails. then proceeded with the smoked trout brillette accompanied by homemade mustard and jam-delightful. We also enjoyed the pomme frits w/ powdered duck fat, and special 'crude' of sable-fish, heirloom tomatoes, palisade peaches, and chorizo. The house cured pastrami on flat breads was succulent. The octopus stew was novel, flavored with sage and rosemary, and the octopus was tender. Yet the mixed sizes of heirloom beans were not all done and the delicate pine nuts were lost. Still, the stew was very good. Our server Don was magnanimous and knowledgeable. Laundry is a fab foodie find!

    The menu here changes so frequently that it remains a very fun place to go on a frequent basis. It's so easy to just order a bunch of different dishes and share them all - it makes the meal so intriguing and awesome. The bartender mixed up a "Bartenders Choice" beverage for me with cinnamon infused bourbon that was just delicious. I never would have ordered it off a menu as it's not my style, but I would definitely order it again after trying it! Service is always spectacular!

    The appetizers were great but the entrees were dull, not flavorful except for pepper, and an overall disappointment. I would return to this place to sit at the bar for drinks and appetizers and to interact with the delightful bartenders.

    Loved the creative small plates we had.....too bad it too so long to get our food. Order of drinks sat on the bar for more than 30 minutes arriving with melted ice and only after reminded the waiter we can ordered them and not received them. Its a shame - better service would keep this restaurant packed.....not half full on a Friday night!

    Third time we have been to the Laundry. Food was again outstanding. Great atmosphere and superb drinks from the bar. One of the top four restaurants in Steamboat. Small plates are better than the few big ones. A lot of variety. Pacing occasionally is uneven. Don't be in a hurry and it is fine. Very reasonable pricing.

    Pickled vegies were good. Meat and cheeses were good. I'd stick to things you'd find in the mountains on the menu. My biggest complaint is that I could feel them stretching margins. Heirloom tomato salad was mostly lettuce...despite the $10 price. Octopus salad was mostly beans...despite the $15 price. The staff tried to make it right, but the food itself wasn't very good despite the fact the menu read well and had some interesting focal point ingredients.

    We dined here after it was recommended to us by the concierge at our timeshare. We enjoyed the dishes we had and the extensive wine list, but were disappointed that they ran out of a couple things we wanted (menu is a bit limited but still good selection) and that they brought out the watermelon gazpacho in one bowl and 2 spoons to share. Desserts were sized for one and absolutely perfect after a big meal. I would definitely come again and would recommend to a friend.

    After searching extensively online and talking to locals after arriving in town, we settled on a 'date night' at Laundry. We loved every bite. My husband went so far as to say the feta garlic mashed potatoes were the highlight of the week-long trip. We got an excellent wine recommendation and the charcuterie was fabulous. All food arrived hot and delicious. We also had octopus appetizer which was cooked properly (too often overcooked and chewy) fried quail and beef cheeks with polenta. Servers were attentive and helpful, knowledgable. We even got a thank you/goodbye out the door as we left cash to pay our bill on the table and took off. We probably won't be back in Steamboat, but would go back again and again to Laundry if it were closer.

    I have been to Steamboat 3 times and twice have had the great fortune to eat at Laundry. The food is incredible. I haven't yet had anything but a fantastic dish. My husband and I order a bunch of small plates and love all the different tastes and textures. Both times we have taken our kids. Although they have a kids menu, my children prefer to order off the main menu. Although the flavors can be sophisticated, they are so delicious that even my pickiest eater loves it there. The wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable. This is a terrific restaurant! I only wish there was one closer to my home in Denver. I highly recommend!!

    Timing of service was out of synch, we ordered 4-5 small plates for two. A salad plate arrived shortly after we ordered, then it was a 20 +minute wait for the next 2 plates. Then we added hummus to our order and it arrived immediately. The cod was our final plate to arrive, maybe 10 minutes after that. The waiter was great as was the food, but either the food needs to come out all at once or in evenly spaced intervals. There was no communication about when what would be served, and it felt like we were being served at the leisure of the kitchen rather than in an orderly fashion. Also, it happened we ordered our hummus plate from another server/host? and his first response was " would you like me to get your server or tell him myself?"

    The service was amazing from the time we walked in to the time we walked out. I appreciated the personal attention we received from the bar tender. He created custom drinks for us, delivered them to us himself and made sure that we liked them. The food was equally fantastic. I would absolutely recommend Laundry and we will be back there every time we're in Steamboat.

    We have dined at the Laundry several times and always been very pleased. The food in innovative and uniformly terrific. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The bar is is also noteworthy, with various infusions created by the bartenders that result in some very novel and wonderful cocktails. They also have a great and reasonably priced wine list, with many wines that are difficult to find, especially in the mountains. We will keep coming back to the Laundry every time we visit Steamboat.

    We had dinner with friends here recently, it was great! Our server was Don, he was very friendly and gave us very good recommendations throughout the evening. We had Hen of the Wood mushroom - really good appetizer style dish, Shrimp Pow Pow - delicious and the sesame powder was a great add-on to the dish. House cured pastrami, very good, & the pork belly - delicious. We also had the Crispy pigs ears for the novelty of it. This dish was ok, the ears were sliced very thin and small to resemble French fries, they were tough and chewy and really could have used a little salt. Overall it was fun to order it, but I don't need to order them again. The rest of the food was great and I would go back next time I'm in Steamboat.

    We went as a group of three to celebrate my father's birthday, and absolutely loved Laundry. The service was friendly, prompt and very helpful. The food was nothing short of amazing. Every item is meant to be shared with your group, so having 2-3 people is an ideal number. My mother is a vegetarian and we had no problem finding food that we would all enjoy. I cannot say enough about the quality of the food. If you want an experience that is not about big portion size but rather about new tastes and unique ingredients, then Laundry is definitely the place to go. Every bite was an explosion of flavor, and you will walk away having eaten at least three things you never have before.

    I have celiac disease and visited Laundry on vacation, it was one of the finest dining experiences of my life. The food was out of this world. Our server Megan (I think), was extremely personable and educated. We were a party of four so we decided to just share small plates and it made for a very fun and amazing dinner. We were so impressed how easy it was to share especially since we had a couple different food allergies at the table. Wine list is impressive as well, so go to Laundry, you will NOT be disappointed !!!!
