  • "What a surprising find. Innovative food and cocktails, reasonable prices, great location."

  • "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?""

  • "If you want to be a little adventuresome, this is the place to try. Food items to share and the most interesting and unusual drinks. Great ambiance and reasonable prices. A definite WINNER."

  • "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!"

  • "The Laundry offers extraordinary gourmet delights in a lovely atmosphere. Service is highly professional while being friendly and welcoming. This is the mountain eatery you visit with out of town friends to impress them with the sophistication one would expect from a top New York City restaurant."

  • "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 wined and dined --and had amazing cocktails at Laundry. This was our company retreat dinner and they were on top of it at Laundry! There were 14 of us. They called the day before to confirm, had tables set up and even cards on the tables welcoming our company! Service was fabulous! Food, drinks and atmosphere was great! Would recommend! Fantastic little gem 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."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "What a great place!!! The food was delicious and innovative. Small plates allowed for the 4 of us to taste a little of everything. We also went at our own pace, ordering dishes as we went along and they where brought out in a nice sequence."

  • "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 !!!!"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "The menu looked delicious, but the chef didn't deliver. Everything we ordered was mediocre. I would never go back. I would recommend Bistro CV, Cafe Diva or Truffle Pig instead. For the price, we were very disappointed."

  • "Not too bad to be able to walk down the street and have this caliber of a meal in the Boat!"

  • "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!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "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!"

    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Dined at this restaurant while visiting Steamboat. Food was excellent and service was perfect. Waiter Paul kept a close eye on us and stopped by the table at perfect intervals. The drinks and infusions were equally excellent."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Just as good as when we came 2 years ago. All dishes we tried were excellent. Loved the Brussels sprout hash, 2 of the party don't eat cheese and they did a special one with no cheese. Enjoyed the food so much we cancelled one of our other bookings to come back another night during our trip."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "In our 10 days in Steamboat, Laundry was by far the outstanding restaurant we found and in fact went back on our last night for a second time. Service was outstanding and food was consistently excellent. Nice mix of casual ambiance, eclectic menu and consistent quality."

  • "Enjoyable atmosphere. Warm with brick and wood. Delicious and unusual food. Great locally and house cured meats. A real treat and fun with a group. Tapas style allows for tasting much of the menu."

  • "I have been here with my boyfriend, and had to go back with my close friend on her birthday because I was so pleased the first time. The drink list is right up my alley, you will definitely be pleased. I like asking the server for their recommendations, it's always steered us right. The foodie quality is there, concretely -like what we've paid at more expensive places, it's very good."

  • "We ate at Laundry this past weekend for the first time. We made a reservation in advance which I would definitely recommend for a weekend night. We ordered the pate as an appetizer. We ordered four small plates, the pastrami dish, salt cod, brussel sprout hash, and pow pow shrimp. All the dishes we had were excellent but our two favorites were the pastrami and the pow pow shrimp. Warning, the pow pow shirmp is spicy. If you are in Steamboat Springs try to get a table at Laundry. It really is terrific."

  • "We went as a group of five, and shared a number of plates, large and small. The Bison Ribs were outstanding, and so were several of the salads. I had the Battle of New Orleans cocktail, which was lovely. Our German exchange student was thrilled that the water was pleasantly cool, rather than punishingly iced. All details were carefully attended to, and it was particularly good for sharing and trying new things. Portion size was perfect (I hate facing a mountain of food, much of which either goes to waste or sits in the refrigerator for a few days before somebody guiltily puts it out of its misery. Very few foods are better after a day of refrigeration!) All in all, a wonderful place, and given the quality of the food, quite reasonable."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "Our party of four ordered 12 items, and the wait staff delivered them in the perfect sequence, and with just the right timing, really enhancing the experience. Of course that would not have mattered, if the food had not been both unique and great. The food was not exotic or quirky, just remarkably different, both in preparation and (most importantly) in taste."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "Was excited to savor Steamboat's small plates place but disappointed at the way they deliver--convention has it that multiple plates come in sequence, a few at a time perhaps for a party of 4 or more but at Laundry--plates. come. one. at. a. time. .....with. a long. pause. in between. Don't come hungry to this wanna-be trendy place. But don't wait too long to try them, because they likely won't be here in 2 years. This space has hosted other restaurants over the years, most good to very good but they don't have what it takes to make it in this ski town."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "This restaurant offers a good wine list, excellent choice of liquor, and truly unique menu items. You can let the wait staff guide you through and have a really excellent dining experience. The facility is quite nice and worth a visit even if just to sit at the bar and have an appetizer."
