High-end food, great presentation
High-end food, great presentation and taste - price (relatively steep) and portion size (small) matching high-end expectations. Management was quite responsive to our request of not sharing in with the 4 course dinners set up for that evening. Thoroughly enjoyed our bottle of wine and the view (mostly clear night) as well as the various appetizers and the desert we shared. Great bread basket.

I was excited to dine at Couloir
I was excited to dine at Couloir after a week long stay in Jackson Hole. The restaurant delivered on all fronts and easily exceeded my expectations. Food was amazing and wine pairings were spot on. The house smoked tenderloin of Buffalo was absolutely delicious and my favorite of the evening. It was beautifully paired with a California cabernet.

The food at Couloir is always wonderful. The view always amazing. Our service is normally excellent, but our waitress this time seemed a distracted.

WHY did Couloir have to remodel
WHY did Couloir have to remodel its space? I personally hate the bistro style they have going on now. The modern look was much more unique. The food is always great and you cannot beat the view on clear days.

Our dinner was delicious.
Our dinner was delicious. At a table for 4 with very varying tastes, there was something delicious for everyone to eat. Phil and Howie, our servers, were very attentive and friendly. Mike, the sommoilier, was very knowledgable about the wine and how it paired with the food. The gondola ride was not just a mode of transportation but a fun part of the whole experience.
Couloir would also be a great place for a private event or wedding- you cannot beat the views or overall experience!

Incredible views and good food
We arrived for an early dinner and were fortunate to be seated at a window table. The restaurant had just opened for the summer season (2nd nite). Overall the food, ambience and service were quite good and the views were breathtaking. We even had 2 elk run by as we looked out over the valley. The fixed price menu offered a nice variety of choices for the four courses and the portion sizes were just right for us.
Recommend a warm jacket for the trip up if the weather is onthe cool side as it was quite windy at the top of the mountain.

Took the gondola up on our last day in Jackson. Such a great place, with a spectacular view. It's a must eat in Jackson!

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Couloir. It's a beautiful setting wtih wonderful food, service and ambience - I would highly recommend this restaurant for those looking to celebrate a special occasion, ie, anniversary, engagement. We celebrated our 25th anniversary there and the setting couldn't have been better for the occasion. Thank you!

Sky high dining
So beautiful to be looking out on Jackson Hole as the sun goes down and the colors change. The wine pairings are a must, it really helped the appeal of the meal. Nice choices of courses. The food itself was good but not as memorable as the experience as a whole.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The view was on top of the world. The service was exceptional. The food was truly delectable. Wonderful dining experience.

The food was superb! My husband and I celebrated our 29th anniversary here and it was worth every dime. The service was awesome and the view was incredible. We did the wine pairing with each course which made it even more perfect. I would highly recommend this restaurant!!!

Enjoyed the entire meal. Reserve early to get a seat at the window.

We did the 4 course tasting
We did the 4 course tasting menu with wine. Food was excellent. Each course was first class. The dessert sampling was delicious. The wines were excellent as well - good pairings. Fun to go up by the gondola and what a view! We watched a storm roll in. It was very quiet and the service was good.

Couloir is excellent. One
Couloir is excellent. One note to summer diners is (like most places in Jackson) there is no AC. If you tend to run hot make a later reservation so the restaurant has a little time to cool in the night air and dress appropriately. Just make sure to bring a jacket for after dinner! I really can't say enough about this restaurant. Excellent food, wine, service and the view is spectacular!!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Top notch dining.
The gondola ride was amazing and a great part of the dining experience. The food was delicious, and well presented. I thought I had done my homework, but I didn't realize it was a set four course meal, with choices for each course. All courses were delicious and both my wife and I found pleasing plates for each course. Because of my inattention, it was a bit pricier than I had expected, but it was well worth it. The view of sunset on the Grand Tetons was amazing. It was a highlight of our trip to the Yellowstone/Teton area.

Dining at the top of the world!
Located at >9000 feet above sea level, the view of the mountains is spectacular. The mile long tram ride to the top and back, very unique. The food was as good as any five star restaurant I've eaten in anywhere in the US. Broad wine selection. Excellent service. At a starting price of $95.00 a plate for a four course meal, it won't be in my regular restaurant rotation. This is, however, a "must eat at place" when you are visiting the Jackson area or trying to impress that special someone in your life. For a dining experience like no other, you have to try this place! WORD.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I found Couloir and were blown away with everything from the million dollar view to the food and wine pairings to the exceptional service!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful scenery and food!
This is our fifth time to Jackson Hole and I finally
summoned enough courage to take a ride up to the restaurant.
I can't believe what we have been missing. Our server Bret
was wonderful and the food was amazing along with the wine pairing.
We enjoyed it so much we are going again before
we leave for home. The whole experience - dinner and ride- was
Definitely a must!!

Up the gondola to the restaurant
Up the gondola to the restaurant and on a clear evening a spectacular view. Highlights -excellent foie gras,gazpacho and bison. Dessert only weakness. Good wine list for the location and sommelier. One of Jackson's best.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best restaurant in Teton village!
Scallops is the most highly recommend starters in Couloir. It is so fresh and soft !
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Luxury at 10,000 feet
Fantastic dining experience, unique dishes, great wine selection. Personal and very knowledgeable wine expert. Don't go if you don't have some extra spending cash, very expensive, but worth it for a special occasion.

The deck & Couloir
Really enjoyed Happy Hour on the deck at the top of the gondola ride, followed by an exquisite meal at Couloir: several excellent choices for each course. Great view if one sits on the upper level. Only complaint: the pleasant waiters were actually too efficient! I felt a bit rushed.
I would certainly return and try to have an upper-level table; also, ask our waiter to give us a little time between courses.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Top of the World
Couloir is not only located on an amazing mountain but it also can boast having one of the best kitchens in the Valley. One might think that a restaurant on the top of a mountain might be about the view and the food would be a second thought. Not so here. At Couloir you privileged to have a view of Teton Valley not seen anywhere else and enjoy a five star dining experience.
8/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
Best in Jackson Hole
A fabulous dining experience! Five out of the six of us did the wine pairing option and it was phenomenal. They allowed changes when requested, and even boxed up two entrees when two guests had to leave early. This sets the bar high for anywhere - not just in Wyoming. Loved it. But Very pricey of course.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
As Good as it gets!
Once again the Couloir managed to blow me away! The new menu is amazing! The King crab over melon was brilliant! The salad with Local Idaho peaches and local whipped Feta was out of this world, the best salad I have ever eaten! Of Course the Bison was as close to perfection as possible! Desert was a work of art!
The staff is what makes it the "Ultimate dining experience" The staff at the Coulior is as professional as it gets, yet very warm and friendly. Everyone on the staff makes you feel at home and comfortable. I really enjoy how they take the extra time to explain that the majority of the food is locally produced.
Lets not forget that you are dining at over 9000 feet with the best view of Jackson Hole possible from a dining room!

Gourmet food with a view
Food was outstanding, service fine, but the prix fixe menu beginning at $95.00 was a surprise not mentioned in any brochures or online info. We saw several people get up and leave when they found out there were no other options. A little truth about the set-up would be more honest. That aside, the meal was outstanding and we enjoyed every bite of our four courses.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was such fun to begin the evening with a gondola ride. The food was beyond superb! We watched the evening shadows sweep over the valley, follwed by a gorgeous sunset! Worth every penny!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our dinner on Sunday 25 August was absolutely superb and the service could not have been better! Not only was the cuisine outstanding, but the view was breathtaking at 9100 feet. Our gracious waiter Luke recalled us from the summer before at Jenny Lake Lodge in Grand Teton National Park and anticipated our every need. Michael, the sommelier, was also top class and made a wonderful recommendation of a delicious Mercurey monopole from Burgundy. The wine list, which he had amassed, was extensive and very fairly priced. Indeed, we thought the entire experience was memorable and worth every penny. My only suggestion for improvement would be gentler background music. Next summer, we plan to reserve two nights at this excellent restaurant!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Nouvelle Cuisine, Excellent pastries... Excellent service... A bit expensive but... they have to bring all this food at the altitude...
8/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
The setting is breath-taking. The food is the best in the area, and the wine list is large. Wes Hamilton is a high quality chef producing extraordinary meals, sourced locally for the most part. It is not cheap, but a great experience and a special event that is worth the time and money.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The ride up the mountain was "just right" to build anticipation of the breathtaking view once we stepped out of the tram. Cocktails at the outdoor bar, before heading upstairs, allowed us to take in pre-sunset, the grandeur of the Tetons and their valley below. We were warmly greeted and seated at a window table which allowed us to watch the sun bow out for the day."People watching" let us know that each and every table seemed to be sharing in the same delight that we experienced. Coffee and nibbles of dessert over the twinkling lights of the valley finished off the dining experience sublimly.The evening ended with the ride down the mountain that allowed us time to review the evening while still in the grasp of the Tetons magic. Perfect!

Excellent dinning in high altitude
Superb dinning high above Jackson Hole, the Couloir offers excellent food, service and views. Though high in price, the restaurant is located in an unbelievable setting, seldom experienced by dinners unless one travels to the high Alps!
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a really unique experience, from the gondola ride up to the restaurant with the beautiful view, to the most delicious dinner served very graciously.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Setting is one of a kind!
Setting is one of a kind! Service was great. Food was interesting, but very expensive for the quality. There are many good restaurants in the area that give this one competition on the food level, but no competition on the location!
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Magnificent view! Wonderful food!
Nearly 10,000 ft. above the valley, with wonderful views of the. Tetons in the distance, Couloir's four course fixed price menu offers something for every taste. Bothe the food and wine pairings were excellent. They even produced a rainbow over the mountains. Well, maybe that was just a coincidence. We just wish it wasn't 1500 mile from home.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Expensive and Worth It
Our group of 5 included one veg, one lactose free - chef was skillfully accommodation g and all dishes were very good. Bison, Alaska halibut and quinoa veggie dish were flavorful, filling but not too much. Salads were locally sourced, excellent, as were the starters. The view is a fantastic panorama it feels higher than the Teton peaks with long valley views. We find it rare to have such a great meal in a magnificent setting. Be prepared to dig deep in your wallet, though! We all agreed it was a very memorable experience.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed a memorable meal with notable wines, outstanding service and a million-dollar view!

Incredible Food and Service!
My husband and I got away for a romantic date atop the Gondi at the Coulior Restaurant. We had the four course meal with the wine pairing. The presentation and flavors of the food were incredible, the bison entree and scalliop starters are a must. Make this a special occasion as it is not cheap, but very worth the cost
