    I loved this place! It's a casual and laid back restaurant with excellent food. I love the way this restaurant works, you order all your dishes and the food comes out the way the the chef thinks is best to really savor and enjoy the food. The idea is the share the plates of food so you end up trying a ton of different dishes. everything we ordered delicious. Notable dishes include the liver pate, the crispy pig ear fries and the short rib pasta. I highly recommend this place if you're in Steamboat.

    We like Rex's so much that we're working our way through their family of restaurants. Laundry is a complete hit with us! Rustic with a bit of Southern influence, in decor and menu. Locavore sourcing, many house-made items, delicately smoked items...all 5 of our dishes were distinct and showed off nuances of taste. Good Job! We selected the 5 piece Chef's Choice: Bergamot Tea-Crusted cheese w/ Tasso Ham slices, house-made pickles slices, delicate Cracker Crisps, gentle Hummus, Pear Salad w/ House-made Seasoned Fennel & Onion Slices, the Infamous Brussels Sprout Vegetable Hash, incredible Beef Cheeks. Service was personalized; no order-taking w/distant attitude here. We were led on a friendly & flavorful journey.

    This was our first time at Laundry on a recommendation from a family member. The decor was really neat, food was fantastic and lit server was very knowledgeable and friendly. Stand outs were the Beef Cheeks, Pastrami, and Hen of the Woods Mushrooms. Speciality cocktail was delicious and only $6! Would recommend to anyone visiting Steamboat!

    Great fun, small plate concept! This restaurant was the highlight of our Steamboat trip! Great food, generous portions for the table to share. Don't miss this delicious restaurant for a small plate fun, kind of night. It should also be mentioned, that the people that work here, love their jobs. They were very helpful in giving us tips on the ski area in general. I will return to this location on our next steamboat trip.

    Because menu items are meant to be shared, dining at Laundry can be a lot of fun but at times a bit tricky (depending on individual dining preferences). The upscale trendy atmosphere and high quality inventive food have made this restaurant very popular especially with the well-heeled crowd. The most recent night we ate at Laundry the bar was overflowing and every dining table full. Perhaps that was why we were not seated until 45 minutes after our reservation time.

    Laundry has really good food and the staff are terrific. The small-plate, shared dining is fun and great for four to six people, but those little plates can really add up. Drinks are pricey too.

    The selection of dishes was unique, and all of the 5 or 6 we ordered were great. The restaurant's M.O. is to serve 2-3 small plates to each person. It works out well. The custom cocktails were good too. Most restaurants simply pour a bunch of sugar syrup, vodka, and some kind of flavored liqueur into a glass and slap the suffix -tini on the end. These were legit cocktails. You won't be disappointed with Laundry.

    We went to Laundry to celebrate new years. The food was scrumptious. They recommend sharing the plates of food so it's a great way to taste a variety of selections. I especially enjoyed the Brusselsprout hash and the trout. The waiter gave off a bit of a creeper vibe, but he didn't make any mistakes. They have wine happy hour on Fridays starting at $4.30 4:30 then the price goes up each minute. The food was so good, we went back another time while we were in the Boat. The food wasn't quite as good the second time around.

    This place is pure steamboat with its western ambience of old wood, beams and wooden floor. The bar is a work of western art. The food is wonderfully esoteric. The staff is friendly and attentive and are all truly invested in the success of the place. I highly recommend!

Highly recommend the Rocky Mountain Trout (large plate) and the grilled pear salad, kale salad, and brussels sprout hash. Pickle jar and hummus are great first bites as well.

    Overall this place has Very Good Food. Unfortunately, that exciting basic is clouded by poor customer service. Simple: "Welcome to…" was instead a curt: "can I help you"-like we were in the wrong place. Timing of the meal was poorly managed by the server, who also did not keep up with new plates/silverware. Delish trout and duck but they did not come out at in sync. "Dealing" the dessert menus onto the table felt rude and totally turned us off. If the attitude and connection had been playful it might have been ignored or amusing. Unfortunately, this was a rare time where we actually took the extra time to leave 15 rather than 20%-Very Rare. Our 12 year old son put it best…."The vibe was off, and there was no charisma from the staff".

    Dined here Christmas Eve with my husband and three boys after a long day of skiing. Our waiter, Don, was excellent and very knowledgeable about the unique menu. The items are all meant to be shared plates and the food is as local as they can get and many things (like the cheese and pickles) are made in-house. We tasted a little of everything, it seemed. Our favorites were the Shrimp POW POW and fried quail. We will definitely dine there again the next time we visit Steamboat!!!

    Laundry is one of the top restaurants I've been to in a long time. They just recently launched a new small plates menu and regardless of whether you like the item on the menu, if it's ordered, try it, you will like it. Everything beat all my expectations not just for a small ski town but for a big city too. Highly recommended. Cocktails were also fantastic.

    While on a mini-vacation in Steamboat Springs, my boyfriend and I had dinner here at Laundry. I had read about the restaurant in 5280 a few months before, and thought that we needed to give it a try. I would definitely recommend the chef's menu. It's perfect for two people and we devoured everything they put in front of us. Try the specialty cocktails, too. The blueberry lemonade is delicious. Low-key but romantic. Highly recommended for a special night out!

    Tried this place because of the eclectic menu, and it gave us a chance to try a a number of Colorado produced foods. Service was good, great drinks and wine list. The only dish we weren't pleased with was the shoestring potatoes, and they were removed from the tab. Wait staff is very knowledgeable about all the menu items, and are happy to explain it all! Colorado rouge cheese was excellent, wish it was available in the East!

My Roasted Pear Salad was so delicious and perfectly dressed, I could have stopped there as I was pleasantly full but, we had each ordered an entre type dish and they were very good, we tasted each others. The service was efficient and not hovering. A really nice evening.

    Great resturant - unique dishes. But I think they could executed a little better. The food is very simular to Cafe Vino in Fort Collins. This an off time in Steamboat - between seasons so to speak. My guess that during ski season the quality goes up a notch or two.

Even more exciting is that this is an ever evolving menu changing seasonally but also with daily specials. I cannot describe how wonderful everything was. My advice- bring a group and share as many plates as you can. You will not be disappointed!
