    Crazy busy F night. Party of 3 jammed in to bad corner too close to other tables. Asked hostess for different table, refused. Asked server for different table. Moved promptly. Best tastes: oven roasted swordfish and prime rib both excellent. Lobster bisque, smoked salmon, cooked salmon and raw oysters excellent also. Least favorite: shrimp in polenta, seafood salad, king crab legs (too much work). Skip: desserts. Wine list: ok. Nothing special.

    The buffet here looks great but tastes right under average. At $33 a piece, we were regretful. Lots of young children running around and screaming, etc. but the view cannot be beat. Just beautiful. Service was very attentive.

    New brunch configuration left breakfast guests with cold, unappetizing options to select from. Until the resort gets back on track with morning options - avoid, avoid, avoid. Took my mother out this past weekend to celebrate her birthday and was extremely disappointed with the food at our meal. Limited options to select from in an out of the way, poorly maintained buffet line. Bright spot was our server, Darryl.

    Not your typical buffet. Really high quality entre items. Somewhat limited variety. We ate on a weekday; Fridays are more lavish. The dining room is large with nice spacing between tables. Service was outstanding. Very attentive server. Salads were nice and desserts were over the top. A terrific view and the restaurant has outdoor seating. We also had their breakfast buffet. Omelets made to your liking. Excellent waffles. Again, outstanding service.

    Dined here with my daughter and grandson and was disappointed. Menu selections were few, presentation of my petite filet was the worst I have ever seen. Hearts of romaine was tasty but the little anchovies on top looked super oily and they weren't needed. Mac and cheese we ordered for my grandson was something out of a box I am sure and I expected a bit more from this establishment. Wasn't offered a wine list, mango creme brulee was good. Staff, aside from never being offered a wine list, was excellent! The ambience was pretty. Hostess was amazing and we saw her two other times and she was amazing and happy each time we saw her! I wish I had her name as I would let management know!

    Although there were many service problems, the staff did their utmost to remedy the situations e.g.. coffee pot that broke as we were being served. We had the buffet which was ample and varied, but next time I would order from the menu - fish too spicy and I don't eat red meat. The view was lovely and relaxing and we will definitely give them another chance. The desire for a first class restaurant was there, it just needs a little refining.

    We should not have expected much from a seafood buffet. Seafood needs to be cooked just right and having the food sitting out of course it is going to be overcooked. The crab and shrimp could have used more flavor and pretty much all of the other dishes were way too salty. We're glad we tried it but definitely will not be going back.

    We scheduled a special occasion here for 4 people. Staff were nice to let us set up some gag gifts on our table before other guests arrived. Turned out we were there on Friday night when they offer their seafood buffet. Lucky for us it was a spectacular spread of not only seafoods, but also carved prime rib, pork tenderloin, chicken, etc. Nice cheese and salad bar, wonderful dessert choices. Seafoods included lobster bisque, seasoned cured salmon and white fish, varying seafood entrees, crab legs, oysters on the half shell and pre-peeled large shrimp. We aren't from the area, but would be Friday evening regular if we did.

I had the seafood buffet - fresh seafood from the Pacific. Mussels, oysters, shrimp, fish galore. What a feast. And dessert was delicious

    Food was great.We had a party of 10 and it would have been nicer to have a round table rather than a long table so that everyone could socialize with each other. I am also not a fan of the tip being added automatically because the server knows they are getting paid no matter what. The service was good but at times he was nowhere to be found and he definitely spent more time with his smaller tables. Given that we all ordered the buffet I don't feel the automatic tip was warranted.

    We arrived at 1130 (on time) for our reservation but were not greeted promptly by the host/hostess, even though I stood directly in front of them waiting for them to acknowledge me. After about 7-8 minutes, we were acknowledged and seated. The service at the table was excellent, and the food was good. There were 3 different buffet areas, and a carving station. While I enjoyed the food, I felt it was overpriced as our lunch for 3 people was over $178. Not sure if I will return.

    I invited a small group of people, here, for a mini-retirement party. My request for a table that was tucked into a corner with a view was honored and we had a perfect spot for our dinner. Our server,Pepe, was an older gentleman, very experienced, and took EXCELLENT care of us! We all had the Seafood Buffet, which offered a wide variety of choices and was very good. The dessert bar looked great but did not stay well-stocked by the time we were ready for dessert. Otherwise, we had a great experience and would recommend this place, especially, for special occasions. The resort is terrific for strolling after dinner and many quiet places are available for small groups to gather to visit and enjoy the views!

    Friends have said the Mountain View Restaurant has an outstanding Sunday brunch - they were right! We took a 45 minute drive for what turned out to be an excellent way to spend a few hours celebrating my birthday. The service was excellent. The food was so delicious - we all agreed there wasn't, a thing we tired that we didn't like. Each item was perfectly prepared and perfectly presented. Mimosas and champagne were included which made for a feeling of celebration. The dining experience ended with a very nice dessert selection and coffee. I highly recommend this restaurant and thank them for doing what you expect from a restaurant and doing it exceedingly well.

    My wife and I ate here after finding it on Open Table. We went on a Friday night when they have a seafood buffet on the menu. The price is very reasonable as they offered everything from shrimp cocktail to oysters on the half shell to steamed crab legs just for starters. There was also a grilled swordfish and even prime rib is seafood is no to your liking. The salad bar had some great choices and the shrimp bisque soup was very good. Dessert is also included and while the desserts looked very good, I would only rate them as moderate. Overall it was a great treat with excellent service by the very helpful staff.

    My young daughter and I decided to have a girls night out and wanted to try something new. We had the seafood dinner buffet at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort and had a great time. The food was delicious and the servers were great. We had fun eating foods we have had before and trying dishes for the first time. We were able to relax and enjoy ourselves. We enjoyed our time so much that we may have to bring the boys (my husband and son) to share in the experience.

    My friends and I ate at the Mountain View Restaurant for the Friday night steak and seafood buffet the other night and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our server, Ron, was absolutely wonderful and the food was fantastic! We were so excited to find out that they had moved the prime rib to Friday night and joined it with the seafood buffet as we had previously enjoyed both the seafood and prime buffets each on separate occasions. This was a real treat for us.

    Since we were staying at the Resort, we had dinner there as well as the Sunday brunch. The Sunday brunch was a very positive experience with a huge variety of great food. The dinner buffet wasn't the best, especially for the cost. The food wasn't too tasteful and the salads were not too imaginative. I would definitely recommend the brunch, but make sure you start with a healthy appetite in order to get your money's worth!

    The buffet has deteoriated signaficantly on Saturday night. I was embarassed by the offerings I subjected my wife and two guests to. Serloin beef was tough and grizzly, shrimp was very small shrimp in a nodescript sauce, Chichken was tough. Two types of cheeze were essentially american white and yellow. No special cheezes. One type of bread. Soup was onion bisquie satisfactory. Deserts were the high point of the meal. I will not return soon.
