Thank you for the complimentary sparkling wine celebrating our 18th Anniversary! Unexpected but greatly appreciated! The service was excellent throughout the evening. Meals were prepared with great flavor and excellent presentation. Highly recommend the filet!

We almost always bring our guests here for dinner and go ourselves about once a month. We had a great waiter but dang the service was incredibly slow, we ended up getting seated upstairs which we never like because the noise rises and we can’t have a conversation without shouting. Food always good but not great this time. Made reservations about two weeks in advance. Come on Aurum you can do better than this! It took two hours for meal service, had drinks in bar beforehand.

Unfortunately I am unable to recommend Aurum. I decided to try it based on other reviews. Both courses of our meal were, bland. Our Foie Gras was meh, not much taste, which you would not expect for such a rich food. My husband ordered Waygu and I ordered Duck. Once again rich cuts of meat you would expect to be bursting with flavor, but not so. We have dined at many upscale restaurants around the country ordered the same type of meals and never been this disappointed. All this and a couple of drinks plus tip cost close to $200. For us Aurum would not be worth a return trip. I guess the one positive was our waiter Lee.

Awesome place. We were there for happy hour and the food was great. Might like to try dinner sometime, but I’m always skeptical of the resort prices and value, coming from a town with many Michelin Star restaurants.

We were seated an hour later than our reservations. Smallish menu. Once we were seated the service was good. But, it was more fun in the bar with live music. They did take a significant amount off of the bill, which was nice.

Seated promptly at reserved time. Service was pretty decent. Mixed drinks a little less than average quality at $12. Crab cakes appetizer $18 (small plate) was delicious! Salad was good. Wagyu beef entrée $65 was delicious and cooked properly. Sea Bass entrée $39 was not impressive. Flavor combination of the fish wasn’t desirable and really didn’t pair well with the accompanying black beans.

While the food continues to be top notch service is showing signs of slipping. On a not busy Monday it took a half hour for a waiter to even visit our table and thinly after we asked the front of house to point out our waiter. Not even an apology.

I will attribute this to one bad night. Steaks are always perfectly prepared and the fish is always nicely prepared with interior spices.

Hopefully better luck next time.

Best foie gras and sourdough bread I have had in a long time. My favorite dinner restaurant in steamboat. I go every time I am in town. Try the Brussels sprouts, even if you don’t think you like them. You could change your mind—my friend did! Thanks for another great dining experience! Can’t wait to come back in the summer and eat out on the patio.

Wonderful meal. The wine selection is good, but the price break on bottles was amazing. Great cocktails with a true full bar. The food was excellent. The filet was cooked to the perfect temperature. It would be an awesome dining room if the sun was still up or in the summer months. We will definitely be back.

We loved the live music they had next to the bar. Kind of unplugged 90s music with a super chill vibe.
The food was really good, my lamb shank was perfectly cooked. I’d definitely come back next year when in town again.

I ordered the special, medium rare. I cut the meat in half, it had been browned on the outside, but was raw inside so I sent it back. Ten minutes later I received the same piece of meat, which was now tough and dry and lacking the seasoning that was supposed to coat the meat. Meanwhile, my wife’s meal was cold. I had hoped for a new entre, not my original piece of meat recooked. Will not return.
