    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.

    This hidden gem was a wonderful surprise in a Colorado mountain town. The food and beverages were unique, delicious, and nicely presented in a lovely historic building. I would expect to find this caliber of foodie creativity in a major city, but no other Colorado mountain town can rival. We'll be back!

    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.

    The prices are very high for a very small amount of food. Everything is very tasty but you have to order double or triple what you think you'll need to fill yourself. Our waiter was distant and rather rude as well. Not some place I'd go again.

    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 !!!!

    We had a large group (9 of us). First time at Laundry. Our waiter, Megan, advised us well. The restaurant serves "family style". The food was amazing. The pacing of the dishes was well done. Megan and the kitchen paced everything out for us. We tried things on the menu we might never have in a different format. Definitely on our list for our return trip next year.

    Started my meal with the infamous pig ears...texture chewy but very very favorful...not what you expect and the picked chilies add spice not heat. main meal; bison ribs... moist &tender over creamy grits. Apple cobbler with hazelnut infusion and with cream/mascarpone topping was a delicious variation. Don the server gave great insight to be able to make choices....and will be returning later in the week to satisfy more cravings!

    Everything was fantastic here! It is a small plate driven restuarant, which makes it hard to chose what you want, but they offer a chef's choice menu for $33 a person, and it is absolutely the way to go! Great amount of quality food for the price. I will be going back to laundry the next time I am in Steamboat!

    I loved the restaurant and the food but just have one complaint. I thought the prices for the large plates were too high. We only got one large plate, the short ribs, and it was quite small for the price. I'm assuming the other large plates are similarly sized but I could be wrong.
