Diner Reviews
  • "This has to be one of the best restaurants,if not the best in Colorado!! We tried four different courses and each one with outstanding. My husband had rack of lamb and he said it was the best he has ever eaten. I chose the Dover sole and it was wonderful as well. We also had crabcakes for an appetizer and a wonderful lemon soufflé for dessert. I think everything they serve must be fabulous if the food we had is any indication. Can't wait to return!!"

  • "Splendido is a professionally managed, customer service first establishment, with execution at standards one would expect from the best that Beaver Creek and Vail has to offer. We appreciated the genuinely warm welcome, and professional staff."

  • "Took my sons wife for dinner, she had never been. It was about my 10th or 12th time. As usual it was fabulous. The only negative was that our table wasn't quite ready and so we went to the bar. I ask the bartender a question and he was quite surly. Luckily they came for our table 20 seconds later and we didn't have to linger. Other than that it was a stellar experience!"

  • "Food is always great at Splendido, but the decor is getting a bit dated. And it is most annoying that the waiter's routinely fail to provide the 25% discount that is available for early diners and require you to specifically remind them and re-run the bill"

  • "We having been visiting Vail for 20+ years and over the years we have found Splendido to be way above par. The setting is pretty, the food is outstanding and we always enjoy our dining experience there. It was our anniversary and our dessert plates had Happy Anniversary written in chocolate on the rim of the plates. Great night!"

  • "Dinner was WONDERFUL as usual and as expected - only problem we have with Splendido is that we do not get there often enough - only wish that Dallas had this good a restaurant."

  • "Everything about this restaurant is impressive. The food was incredible and the service perfect. The entertainment adds to the special atmosphere. Local diner."

  • "The foie gras was better than any we've had in France, or anywhere. The whole Dover Sole was divine. The service was excellent. The comprehensive wine list was reasonably priced for an upscale restaurant. This was our first visit, but it won't be our last."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The food was terrific, and the chef accommodated our special request with enthusiasm. We had the lamb chops and the pork tenderloin. Both were exceptional. The wine list is lengthy with a goods mix of old and new world's wines. Our waiter told us that the Dover sole was from the Dover channel. Two different people asked if we wanted ice or bottled water, yet neither brought any water. The "sommelier" said that the wine I asked about "might have gra-nah-chay" in it but couldn't remember if he had tasted it. We've dined here previously, and hopefully the marginal service was an aberration."

  • "This place lives up to its name! Everything was absolutely fantastic!! Because it was our anniversary, my husband and I decided we'd drop some extra coin on a nice dinner and are so happy we picked this place. The service was attentive and friendly, the food was amazing, and the view of the mountain is beautiful. The manager came over and helped us pick a really nice bottle of wine that was not outrageously priced. Our server made excellent recommendations. The tuna poke was out of this world and the lamb was delicious. We had such a nice night and cannot wait to return next summer for our next anniversary dinner. Thank you Splendido for the lovely evening!"

  • "Food was terrifice but the service was so poor that our evening was a disappointment. When we arrived we requested an outdoor table but were told they were "filling up". All during our dinner and after our dinner there were open tables outside. We arrived early and were asked to sit at the bar where our server seemed put out to take care of us because we were not eating there. Our table service was so bad we asked for our wine bucket to be brought closer to the table so we could serve ourselves. Bad night overall."

  • "we lown a house in Beaver Creek and have been to Splendido numerous times. The food is great but the service is has consistenly disappointed.....either we are given a bad table or the waiter screws up....on our last visit it was the waiter. My wife asked about the Lobster and he said they had it on special. Another group sat down after us and before they waiter returned to our table, they ordered the Lobster from him. When the waiter returned to our table, he told my wife the Lobster was sold out. It ruined her evening.....we will be taking a lengthy break from Splendido."

  • "If you don't do anything else while you are staying in Beaver Creek, you must dine at Splendido. My wife and I had a wonderful evening and we cannot recommend a restaurant and bar more highly. Splendido has it all: great dining, romance, and a wonderful piano bar!"

  • "My wife and I went to Splendido Restaurant in Beaver Creek Colorado for our anniversary. I hoped that the meal would meet our expectations based on the reviews of the restaurant we had read. The experience exceeded those expectations. We have eaten at many fine restaurants in the world; but, our meal this evening was probably the best we have had. We cannot recommend eating here more highly."

  • "We come here every Spring for skiing and Splendido is always on our list for return visits and once again, it did not fail to please. We had 2 tables with 3 children and 4 adults and all were treated with respect and great service. We ordered the foie gras with kumquats as a starter and the melding of the richness of the foie gras with the sweet bitterness of the fruit was sensational. Our elk loin practically melted in our mouths. My friend's barramundi dish was perfectly seared and in a briny delicate broth along with shelled seafood. The lemon soufflé with huckleberry was so light and cloudy and almost ethereal. We left happy, full, and looking forward to our next trip to Beaver Creek to dine at Splendido's!"

  • "This place is oustanding. Get the lobster (they don't list it on the menu, but almost always have it). Chocolate souffle was to die for, service and atmosphere was out of this world. I cant wait to get back to Beaver Creek so I can eat here again!"

  • "Splendido is a sparkling star in the firmament of fine dining establishments in Beaver Creek. My wife and I have frequented just about every great restaurant in the area but had not been to Splendido until this past weekend. The food was some of the best we have had anywhere. The service was attentive and our server, Mick, scrupulously saw to every detail, and the view and ambience are beyond description. The menu is varied and interesting. The wine list is superb. We will long remember this as a great dining experience."

  • "We ate at this establishment several years ago and enjoyed it very much. This past weekend we visited once again and had a great meal. As a reference we have eaten at French laundry in the past year and would consider that the standard for fine dining and service. Splendidos for the price point was exceptional. We had the tuna sashimi and fried pork belly both excellent and the next course did not disappoint. The sea bass, rabbit and lobster were perfectly prepared. The 3 of us shared 4 desserts. The service was great relaxed and attentive."

  • "Our evening started well - delicious food in a great setting. Then just as our entrees arrived, four families arrived with their 9 children between the ages of ~3 and 8. All 9 children were seated at a table adjacent to ours and the 8 parents were seated at a table on the other side of us. Our pleasant evening was completed destroyed. Both children and parents went back and forth between tables and the noise level went through the roof. We asked to be moved to another table but were placed by the bar next to the (very good, but way too loud) piano. Despite our obvious displeasure no attempt was made to improve the situation. The manager did NOTHING to rectify the complete ruination of our long-anticipated special evening at Splendidos."

  • "Splendido certainly lived up to its reputation during our visit. Everything was fantastic. Aaron, our server, made the entire meal an experience we won't forget. He paired wines for several courses and the pairings made the already delicious dishes even better. We weren't hurried and savored every moment. Well done Aaron and Splendido."

  • "We were brought to a very small table (about 18 inches wide and 24 inches in length. The table was set with 3 place settings. The entire restaurant was vacant at this moment. All I could think was "COME ON MAN!" Really? We objected and after some brief uncomfortable rudeness, and a threat to walk out, they agreed to move us. That set a very bad tone to start. The maitre de/ seater/Greeters were the not uncommon snoooty type that had a big open laugh at our expense. If you eat out often you will know the type. The food was very good in general. The rabbit dish was excellent, the Lobster was the best we have ever had. The buffalo was tough and very hard to chew, but otherwise prepared OK."

  • "Splendido is consistently excellent! Have never had a bad experience there and have been going for over 8 years. The food is locally sourced so always fresh, the wine list is outstanding and the souffles are to die for! Great ambience and even better service!"

  • "This is our third visit to Splendido. Each dining experience has been exceptional. Everything from the ambience and friendliness and professionalism of the staff to the menu selections, preparation and presentation is excellent. Most importantly, these qualities have remained consistent over the three years we have visited. I highly recommend this restaurant"

  • "We have visited Splendido on our visit to Beaver Creek the last two years. The location is outstanding, the staff, in every aspect is second to none, and the food and service will make you feel like you are in a special place; and indeed you are. This restaurant is rated as expensive, but is well worth it, especially for that special occasion!"

  • "We had an excellent meal at Splendido. The menu has a number of first rate items, especially when combined with a few items from their "bar menu". I would rate it as one of the best meals in the valley and will definitely add it to our rotation when looking for a higher quality dining experience in the Vail valley."

  • "Went for a meal to close out a great 10 days in Beaver Creek. Food was great, we had scallops and crab cake to start - the scallops were the better of the two. Then the colorado lamb and buffalo steak for main. Lamb was deliciously tender and steak was cooked exactly to order. Good selection of wine too, lots of choice, wide range of price points. Stayed afterwards by the fireplace for some malt whiskey."

  • "We usually come out every February to go skiing in Bachelor's Gulch. Last year the food at Splendido was fantastic, this year it felt like the food was not as fresh, over sauced, and not that good. We ordered the Coq au vin, Steak, and Short ribs. Coq qu vin was so loaded with gravy you couldn't taste any of the other ingredients, the steak was super salty and burnt, and the short ribs was more fat than meat. We had a better lunch at the Buffalo than we had dinner at Splendido which was very disappointing."

  • "I have been to all the big BC restaurants. This one is the best. Better than Ritz-Carlton. Deep wine list. They sometimes have live music, and when they do, it is better than the mundane guitar banger you might hear at other BC options."
