                                                    The menu was not that great, and the food we ordered was mediocre at best. Very disappointed.

                                                    I had dinner date with my wife twice in this restaurant. Atmosphere is relaxed but not shabby. Very immersed with service, food (filet mignon and salmon), wine and deserts. I find this place to be one the better places for the money in the Summit County.

                                                    My friend and I made reservations. We were sat immediately but informed they were extremely busy. We sat there for 10 mins w/o anyone stopping by our table. Stopped a waiter and asked for someone to at least get our drinks. The hostess stopped back by poured us some water, we ordered a bottle of wine and she said she’d get our wine and bring us some bread. We sat for another 7 mins still waiting. Finally got up left and the hostess stopped us and again apologized and let us know they were extremely busy but that the bar had full service. No thank you. Never spoke to a server, a manager no one except the hostess. We will never return there again.

                                                    The menu at Bighorn Bistro is very interesting, but the food quality was hit or miss. The calamari appetizer was amazing! The salmon provencale was okay, but the salmon was overcooked and the potatoes undercooked. Other tables received bread, but we did not (I'm not sure if that was just our waitress - she was not particularly attentive, while the other waitress seemed much more engaged). For the menu prices, I expected more uniform quality.

                                                    Our food was great, the staff was attentive, wine selection was good, views from the dining room and the comfort of the room helped make for a great evening. Our desert was slow in delivery, so they did not charge us for the desert (which was really tasty. We will return!

                                                    The pasta primavera was nothing special. It was ok, just not much taste. Service and venue were fine.

                                                    We were very pleased with our meal and drinks at the Bighorn Bistro. It is pricey but the food is exceptional and we wouldn’t hesitate to go back.

                                                    Menu was not remotely the same on the website as when we got to restaurant. Waitress told us they hadn’t had the web menu for quite a while. That was frustrating and only reason we chose to eat there.

                                                    Our waitress saved the day for us. The website had an old menu listed and the dishes we came in for were not being served. We were already disappointed that we had to sit at a booth (we were told all the regular tables were reserved, although they were still empty when we left). But our waitress did everything in her power to make it a nice experience for us. She let the kitchen know about the menu changes and they gave us each a lovely burrata and tomato caprese salad (we were originally going to share) and then gave us a good discount off the bill. The food was fine and they had live music in a different part of the restaurant so you could still hold a conversation. We left with a positive feeling, which is all due to our excellent server.

                                                    We were the first in the restaurant to be seated but the last to receive our meals. Was told it was due to “ a large party” however tables that were sat well after us received their food first. Ordered the scallops, they were super salty and served only with a small serving of vegetables. Service, quality, and overall experience below expectation. Disappointed. Have sat in the bar for dinner/ happy hour and we’re completely satisfied. Needs work.

                                                    Beautiful restaurant which we eat at every year we attend this conference. It is always dependable and an excellent meal. This year the restaurant was almost empty.......only our table and one other! Service was very pleasant. Even with only two tables being served, food was slow coming and not even warm when we were served. Very disappointed in our experience this year.

                                                    The restaurant was not very busy. We were one of three tables and yet the service was very slow. I had an empty water glass for most of our meal. The wait staff never removed our appetizer platter. The steak was very good, but room temperature as were the vegetables. We were disappointed. Since it’s name and concept change we expected a better experience. We won’t go back. There are other restaurants in the area with better prices and attentive wait staff.

                                                    The food here isn’t horrible, but it’s not really that good either. The menu sounds inspiring but every dish we had lacked something. The deviled eggs we ordered were obviously made far, far in advance; they were so cold as to be tasteless and were swimming in a watery sauce that screamed, made ahead. The roasted Brussels were almost as. The courses arrived on top of each other so that we were eating appetizer, salads and entree all at once. The restaurant obviously is set up for huge conventions as there must be 300+ seats. Indeed, our waitress said they were expecting 150 conventioneers that night for dinner, plus tourists.

                                                    My party absolutely LOVED the calamari, scallops, and salmon!! The menu is so allergy friendly and has an huge variety of options. Also the lemon mousse is to die for! Very very delicious.

                                                    The restaurant menu was the same as the bar menu..extremely limited. Hot appetizer was cold. Waiter was good but the rest was pitiful.

                                                    Nice restaurant but the service was poor. We suspect that the wait staff were high but obviously could not be sure. This was due to the erratic nature of the service and the strange communications we had with them. We won’t be back

                                                    The evening started with me getting my kids a couple of shirley temples at the bar. We were staying at the resort for six nights. The host that night rushed over demanding I remove my children from the bar. It was 5:30 PM. I understand we were committing a felony; he could have handled it much differently. I calmly informed him of our reservation. He kindly got us seated and let us keep our wet gloves by the fire, a nice gesture. We ordered the tuna and shrimp appetizers; neither were notable. The service was attentive. We split the salmon, served well done and with no notable flavor. I would suggest others try another entree. I like the bar - great service - and vibe here. Towards the middle of our dinner, our kids were not being all that good. We cut it short. There are few options at this level in Keystone- I would give it another go and try different options.

                                                    Nice time. Service was slow at first but then became very attentive. Onion Soup was mediocre but our main courses were very tasty. Ambiance is very nice and comfortable.

                                                    Lovely restaurant and food excellent plus great service. Ambience only marked down a bit as we had two large tables of young ladies talking loudly over each other - tough for the staff and not a major problem for us but we had a couple of funny episodes where we misheard staff because of the background noise

                                                    This restaurant was a great choice during our trip to Keystone. The food was good, our server was great and it was an easy shuttle ride away from the condo we were staying at in the Mountain House area. I would definitely recommend this place!

                                                    Prices were high relative to the quality of food. View from window seating was spectacular. Our waiter was knowledgeable, courteous and professional.
