    We had to choose one restaurant during our brief visit to Durango, and we got it right. The best attribute of Seasons is the ambiance - warm, friendly, casual but not too "country". Only saw a few meatheads who wore their ball caps at the table. Clueless. Waitstaff was pleasant. Bridgett the bartender is the dynamo who sets the tone for the entire restaurant - constant movement but still engages the patrons with sincerity.

    Appetizers and desserts were great. Small dinner portion was very small and was not impressed with the gnocchi dish. The gnocchi were really small and had more sauce than pasta so was very meaty.

    We always enjoy dining out at Seasons. The food is amazing to say the least. To start we had the poblano kombucha squash soup that was just a delight to eat. For my entrée I had the lamb with lamb-pancetta. By far one of the best dishes I've ever eaten. My friend had the monkfish special that was out of this world as well. The owner is always friendly and even picked out a special wine to go with both the lamb and the monkfish. For dessert we had the tirmasu and the carrot cake. I really didn't have room for dessert but I made room for it. The cream cheese frosting was oh so good. They have the best service, best food and best atmosphere in Durango!

    We decided to sit on the patio because it was a beautiful evening. It was a cement floor on wobbly wrought iron tables and a disgustingly dirty area! The inside is lovely with table clothes you would think they would do something nice on the patio. The food was great and our waiter was very attentive, but they certainly could clean up the back!

  • Not as good as it used to be
    roadfoodie
    Dined on 9/20/2014
    We have dined at Seasons for over 15 years. Sadly, over the years the quality has continued to go down. After eating there this past weekend, my husband and I decided we have to find a different favorite spot in Durango. Our favorite dish is the center cut steak with mashed potatoes and fried onion strings. The whole dish used to be so delicious it was a challenge to not devour the entire serving. However, for the second time in 6 months, the meat was tough, over cooked (for medium) and their previous garlic mashed potatoes have been replaced by a lack-luster, sticky clump of "smashers". Very disappointing and after years of faithful dining every time we visit, we won't be going back.

    First, we asked for a quieter area of the restaurant and the Seasons provided us with a perfect area, where all my guests could hear easily. We were so grateful. Second, the variety of food choices was superb and everyone enjoyed their meals. Third, our servers were gracious and attentive. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and it was lovely to have our wishes so well respected. Kudo's to the Seasons. We'll be back after our fabulous dinner.

    Table and Hostess were ready although we were a bit early. Server was knowledgeable and helpful. The carpaccio was super, entrees great, the best tiramisu in my memory, and palisade peaches over a genius shortcake with whipped cream. First Class experience.

    One of the party of 4 was a vegan. Having frequented the restaurant many times, the chef previously was able to put together a vegan dish that was well seasoned and tasty. In this last occasion, the chef provided a bland tasting risotto with vegetables and demonstrated a complete lack of creativity or interest. It was terrible!

    The patio was surprisingly empty, which made for a quiet, romantic evening. Food was top notch, as expected. It's nice that Seasons makes a special effort to use local produce & meats, is creative with seasonal foods. Service was attentive (thanks, Jamie!) and very friendly and helpful. No complaints, will return for sure.

    I was traveling alone on a business trip and was staying in Durango and found this place on Opentable. Based on the reviews, I decided to reserve a table. What a smart move -- the duck liver mousse was mild and smooth and delicious; the coho salmon with roasted beets and red potatoes was out of this world. The cappuccino was hot and excellent. And the server (Mark) was excellent, too. I highly recommend this restaurant

    We eat at Seasons every time we can find an excuse to drive through Durango and we're never disappointed. The quality of the food and wine is a cut above any mountain town and rates right there up there with the best food experiences in Colorado (and Utah and Nevada and...). Good service, fresh creative cooking and a distinctive wine list in a comfortable casual setting. What more could you ask for?

    We had a delicious dinner at Seasons. We both ordered off the special menu. My husband had the scallops and I had the grilled Alaskan sockeye. They were both beautifully plated and cooked perfectly. It was evident that the chef takes pride in his/her work. We had the peach shortcake for dessert with those delicious Colorado peaches! Yum!

    Thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered. Sockey salmon was probably the best I've tasted. Kale salad and ceasar salad were excellent. Our server was knowledgable and attentive. My only complaint - $3.00 for a bread basket and $1.50 for extra dressing for a salad?? What's up with that in a quality restaurant like Seasons?

    Seasons is the best place to get fresh seasonal (and local) foods expertly prepared. It's the height of the season, so the vegetables were enjoyed by everyone in our party. The sophisticated but casual elegance impressed our guests from California.
