My husband and I ate at Blue
My husband and I ate at Blue River Bistro in 2012 and enjoyed it immensely so of course we immediately made reservations when planning a return ski trip in 2013 to Breck. We were hoping our first experience was not a fluke and we were definitely not disappointed! The food was even better than our first visit. The Beef Tenderloin dusted with espresso was amazing and we really hope it is still on the menu in 2014! The live jazz was soft and romantic. The service was impeccable. Bravo to the owner for creating such a lovely, warm, romantic establishment with fantastic food. We look forward to visiting Breck in the future, partly because of Blue River Bistro.

Always the place we choose for a nice dinner out when coming up to Brec. Food and service are consistently good, portions are big and favors are great.

Gem On The End of Town
We dined at the Blue River Bistro (BRB) while on a spring break ski trip. We are glad we found the BRB. The restaurant was efficient, without being brusque. We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated with a couple of minutes. Our waitperson was friendly and helpful with offering suggestions and opinions on menu choices. With four of us, two adults and two teenagers, we threw a pretty wide net in terms of menu selections. The PEI mussel appetizer was excellent for us 4 to share. The cured salmon salad stood out as unique and very tasty. The main dishes were all very good, but the portions were a little off. A few too many potatoes with the tenderloin and way too much pasta with Robertos Penne. We will be back next year

This was our first time eating
This was our first time eating here and we visited for brunch on Easter Sunday. Food was great and proprietor was attentive. Will definitely be going back.

Great and accommodating staff,
Great and accommodating staff, great server - attentive yet no pressure. Very nice 'casually up-scaled' atmosphere in downtown Breck overlooking the mountains. Traditional and non-traditional menu, the food is fabulous. Delicious martinis. Live music the Sunday night/Easter we were there. Would definitely go back for more!

We had a great experience
We had a great experience at Blue River Bistro. We got there early for our reservation for Happy Hour and they seated us at the edge of the bar area where we could remain for our dinner. It is very loud during happy hour so it made it a little hard to hear the music. If you want to go for a nice dinner and be able to enjoy the music ask to be seated away from the bar.

This place captures that elegant romantic dim lighting feeling in every way. Service is amazing . Has excellent wine list. Service is timely and friendly. At night they have wonderful live jazz . Food is served in appropriate portions and taste as good as it looks. Very accommodating . I have nothing but good things to say .

Gem in Breck
For our 25th Anniversary, my wife and I enjoyed a lovely dinner experience at Blue River Bistro. We made reservations since there was a live band playing (modern jazz, loud enough to be heard but not too loud to make conversation difficult...perfect). We arrived on time, were seated, and the evening began. Scotch on the rocks for me, a glass of red wine for the lady...then salads, and the main course. All done to our request...unhurried...delicious. Don't miss this gem in Breckenridge!
5/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
it had been awhile...
Glad we had reservations! Busy night. Our server did a great job. Enjoyed our meal without being rushed. Great wine list. We will be back sooner than later.

This is our favorite restaurant in Breckenridge. We've been visiting Breck on a regular basis for 6 years and always make it a point to dine here. Food is great, service friendly, live music on weekends, great atmosphere, overall a great dining experience. Be sure to make reservations during busy seasons!!
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
We love the Blue River Bistro -- that's why we had them cater our wedding, and why we continue to return for our Anniversary every year. This year, again, Blue River Bistro delivered delicious food, amazing drinks, and a consistently high level of service. We'll be back year after year.

The food was outstanding, and I would definitely go back there when I go to Breckenridge again. The menu has a symbol indicating which items are gluten free and I had the trout with risotto and it was wonderful.

Late night gem
We had a great experience at dinner. I had the ruby trout & it was delicious. My husband had a steak & he said it was perfect. There was a table of 8 nearby & they said the martinis were wonderful. We have eaten here before when in Breck & we would eat here again.
6/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food. I will come back
Great food. I will come back for sure next time I'm in Breck. Overall it was a great experience, great choices on the menus and the garlic cream sauce was the best i have had.
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Usually excellent this is the only time my dinner was disappointing I ordered the Chicken Marsala it was very bland not delicious however my husband had the pasta and it was fabulous as usual.

This was our first time dining at the Blue River Bistro. The food was incredible and the prices were reasonable. We will definitely be going there again.

The food and service was great. We had a pretty large group that included 2 young kids and they were very well received. They really liked the gentleman that was there singing too.

Great Breck Dining!
The Blue Ridge Bistro has been around for awhile, and it never disappoints! Our server, Kelly, was most knowledgable in helping us
select from the extensive menu and wine list. For starters, the cream of basil soup is a "must have!" The Frutti di Mare, a seafood
pasta dish, was loaded with tiger shrimp, bay scallops and calamari........ definitely a "would do again" dish!
Another nice feature of the restaurant is that they have live music Sunday-Thursday. The Blue River Bistro is a great dining pick when you're in Breckenridge!

"Go To" restaurant when in Breck
I have been to Breckenridge on and off in the last decade and I always have a meal or two at the Blue River Bistro when in town. The live music is always a nice treat along with the friendly staff. I have never been disappointed with my meal and they always have a good special to try. Put in on your list!

This restaurant accommodated a large party with excellent service, food and cocktails. The whole group really enjoyed this venue.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Accommodating for Groups
I reserved for 10 people and was able to get a reservation the same day - this was a plus because this is a popular restaurant in Breckenridge. The service was wonderful. We love the live music but being seated next to it was a bit problematic because it was difficult to hear each other. Loved it anyway. Some of those in our group were very happy with their food but several of us ordered a recommended dish that was actually not up to par. Overall, a very good experience! The waitress even split the check for us - bonus with a large group.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Breckenridge Must!
This s a restaurant that never disappoints. From fresh fish to Italian lts to choose from. Servers are knowledgable, helpful and friendly. No rush!
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Casual and contemporary.
Nice mix of seafood and pasta dishes, plus other choices. Intriguing salads
8/15/2013 5:00:00 PM
Top notch dinner
Everything was excellent. Our second visit in the last two weeks, there will be many more to come. Call ahead, very popular restaurant.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food but a bit noisy
We've eaten there before while in Breckenridge during ski season. The food was excellent but the noise level from the bar area was deafening for a Thursday night.

A Breckenridge "Must"
The Blue River Bistro is a "must" for anyone looking for an excellent restaurant in Breckenridge. I go to Breck every summer and always make the Bistro my final night destination. The food is great, the service is outstanding, and I've never been disappointed. It is definitely a spot I would recommend for anyone spending time in this wonderful town.
8/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Always delicious with great service
We have been to Blue River Bistro a few times and it is always great. The food is interesting, well presented and delicious. The service is excellent. They usually have live music, which is a bonus. This restaurant is very popular, so be sure to make a reservation!

Consistent Local Favorite
Whether specials or standard fare, the food is excellent. Whether on season or off, they care for you in the same positive manner.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner was wonderful. Food
Dinner was wonderful. Food was fabulous. The noisy level was high. It's not that big and the sound bounces off of everything. I would go back but it wouldn't take much to make it quieter. Just a thought.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went to BRB with friends for a ladies brunch. Not too crowded, good service, nice salad selection. The washroom situation was a bit of a bummer (only one ladies'), especially with a pregnant friend, but other than that it was a good choice for our group.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best in Breck!
Nice menu selection, reasonable prices and 1/2 price wine the night we went! We had 3 different fresh fish entrees in a place that is far, far away from the ocean but tasted like it had just been caught. And the NY strip was a healthy cut and cooked to perfection. This is the 3rd time we have dined at Blue River Bistro and will definitely return again.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Blue River Bistro continues to be our favorite spot for Sunday Brunch in Summit County!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a wonderful little restaurant in a beautiful little mountain town!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love it here- Avoid the booth.
I always really enjoy this place but, this time we were sat at the large party booth. They need to saw off the end of that booth. I have never felt so crowded or claustrophobic while trying to enjoy a lovely meal. It was difficult for the servers to serve us and it wasn't ideal at all. I was embarrassed by what my guests had to say about feeling uncomfortable. I love this place- the food, the drinks, the servers but, I will definitely request never to be sat at that booth again.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistent Food and Service
We've been going to BRB for over a decade and you consistently get good food and service. They re-invent the menu frequently so you're not eating the same thing on each visit.
The background MUZAK was a bit annoying this time - repetitive jazz.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food, noisy
The food was some of the best I've had in breck. They have nice bread but you need to ask for it...sort of odd.
Service was excellent. Atmosphere is quite loud.
Will definitely go again!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Still one of the best in Breck
They just remodeled and changed their menu. Still one of the top restaurants in Breck. Always lively at BRB. Great food. Wait staff can be a little pretentious at times, but no more than some of the other "higher end" restaurants in Breck. BRB remains one of our favorite places in Breck.

We chose to celebrate our engagement at Blue River Bistro. Everything was perfect and the our whole time there was memorable! Live music in the background was a fabulous addition. If you are looking for a place to dine in Breckenridge, pick this one. You won't regret it!

Blue River Bistro is our go-to favorite in Summit County. We have always had delicious meals, amazing drinks, and top notch service there. They continue to deliver a five star dining experience again and again, and now with their renovated dining room it is an even more inviting venue.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Blue River Bistro is the best place for Brunch in Summit County! Their new remodel is an absolute delight. My Vegetarian Benedict was made to perfection. Great place to meet friends for over the top dining pleasure!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner at the Blue River Bistro! Great food, great fun, great service.

We showed up 1 hour early for our reservation on Thanksgiving and, even though the restaurant was quite busy, they were able to accommodate us. My traditional Thanksgiving dinner and companion's lasagna dinner were both delicious. Thanks Blue River Bistro!

Best restaurant in Breckenridge
Great martinis... try the snickers martini. The blue cheese escargot were amazing as was the cheese tortellini pasta and molten chocolate cake for desert. We had a really fun dining experience with friendly customers and staff.
