    Both times we've eaten recently at Ken and Sue's, we've had an early reservation. Both times the food was excellent. the first time we ate inside, the second out on their lovely patio, and the service was measurably slower. I'm not sure what happened, but it took maybe 15 minutes to get a beer glass, and the salad came maybe 20 minutes after the drinks and maybe the main course was another 20 minutes in the making. You could find worse places to wait, and the waitress was thoroughly pleasant, but my husband goes early to avoid the rush.

    We made our reservation on line, arrived on time (it was busy with a line) we were immediately escorted to our table which was set for two including water. Leslie, our server was attentive, available, friendly, and knowledgeable about her menu. Nice wine list - used Riedel wine glasses - the proper Chardonnay glass for my wife, proper Pinot noir glass for myself - was immediately noticed. Menu had imagination - loved the lobster quesadilla's. Good food, great service, nice atmosphere - we will return on a regular basis.

    Good food is at the top of our requirements for dining, and Ken and Sue's fits this perfectly. The food is fresh, imaginatively prepared but never needlessly overdone. This time I had the salmon cooked on a cedar plank, and my husband had the rib-eye. We shared a delicious salad. We considered returning for one of their intriguing desserts, but frankly, we were just too, full.

That was just the beginning of a complete dining experience you would only expect in a large city. Excellent service, excellent unique menu selections, great wine list --- the whole nine yards.

    We enjoyed a milestone anniversary dinner which included the ahi appetizer, the tuna steak entré and a large Cobb salad along with a local beer and some wine by the glass. This was our first visit to Ken & Sue's. Our waitress provided us with a framed picture of ourselves to commemorate the experience.

    I found a reservation time close to my preference for a group of 4. It was a busy wknd in DGO so glad to get a reservation here as this is only my 2nd time eating here, but I really wanted to come back, as my 1st time was great as well. I'm a foodie so I love the entre's, drink selection, & desserts. My girlfriend is GF so we were glad to see her get a substitution made w/her entre'. Although our server was pretty young & unfamiliar with a few of my questions, she did remain upbeat, helpful, polite, and attentive. All 3 of my guests loved their meals & drinks as well. Food presentation, quality, & temp was perfect for me. I had the wasabi smashers & tuna & may have a new favorite way to make mashed potatoes now.

    Always enjoy the fine tuna...only alittle cooked. Asian slaw not as good as before...not much punch. Also, would be good to be able to substitute for all the bread that comes with the fish. Fish sauce was so good and my husband used it on his chicken as well.

    Ken and Sue's is the best restaurant in Durango. It has the two most important qualities: excellent quality food and consistency. Every time we dine there, the food quality is unchanged. No doubt this is due to the consistent leadership of the owner-chef. The back patio is the best ambiance. The staff is personable and well trained,

    The drinks -two martinis were watered down as if they had sat in the shaker too long. There was no salt or sugar on the rim as indicated on the menu and they were so full that we couldn't drink them without spilling. The food, potstickers , tuna and two ancho shrimp crusted salads tasted old as if they had been in the refrigerator too long. The salads were very inconsistent. One had lots of mango and the other had virtually none. I think perhaps their menu is too extensive and they are unable to go through things fast enough to keep them fresh.

    I've been in Durango for about 4 years cumulatively now and Ken and Sue's remains my favorite restaurant in town. It's my first choice when going out with friends and has become a staple stop for my mother as well whenever she visits. The quality of the food and large menu are enough to bring anyone in, but I belive it's the additional charisma and vibrancy of the staff that's ultimately responsible for so many return customers. They work hard, and it shows.

    One of our top meals in Durango! The bar service was quick, the cocktails were great. The wine list was impressive. Our waiter was friendly & professional. I had the homemade pasta & chicken parm, it was so good. My husband had the pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon - a winner! Generous portions, lively & not too expensive. Keep it up!!

Very uncomfortable table as people sitting at the bar hovered over us. Service was poor for a restaurant with this level of recommendation. My last time here

    This is not my first dining experience with Ken & Sue's. We ate here for dinner on 05/06/14. We were greeted warmly and seated quickly. The staff were friendly and helpful with suggestions. I chose pasta with chicken; she chose Salmon. The Salmon was good and properly prepared. The pasta was good, a little soupy with marinara. However, the chicken which was layered on top in four pieces, was way overcooked and very tough. Mostly it was placed aside and a big disappointment. The chef needs to not overcook meats so that they are juicy and flavorful. This was not. This is not a bad place to eat, but there are better choices. It's somewhat unremarkable. The ambiance of the restaurant is nice.
