Bighorn Bistro and Bar Ratings and Reviews
I had read about Bighorn Bistro's holiday spread online, but nothing I read could prepare my family and I for the spread we had this Thanksgiving. The restaurant offered a holiday buffet with turkey, prime rib, pasta bar, as well as all the normal Thanksgiving traditional sides. They also had a full salad bar, cold bar full of cold cuts, cheese, peeled shrimp, crab claws and more.
Normally I'm weary of a holiday buffet, but everything was delicious! The turkey and prime rib were cooked perfectly. Not one bit of dry meat even with the turkey breast. The stuffing was amazing as was the mash potatoes they had created were amazing. My normally picky eating girls had seconds. When we finished stuffing ourselves with what the restaurant offered there was even more to choose from with desert. From traditional holiday pies, a variety of chocolate cakes, cheesecakes, bread pudding, and a chocolate fountain.
Service was outstanding and the wine was fairly priced by the bottle. All in all, we spent less as a family of four eating here than if we went to get our own turkey and sides. The family couldn't have been happier with the experience and I recommend checking this restaurant out especially for holiday dining.
This was our third Thanksgiving in a row at Bighorn Bistro. As always, the food was excellent and the dessert table a beautiful display of delicious sweets! My complaint is the lack of fresh vegetables for Thanksgiving - no green beans - no vegetable except broccoli - a disappointment. Also, each year the price appears to increase and $140 for two people with one glass of wine apiece seems pricey.
Went during off season in Keystone-very relaxed and enjoyable experience in a beautiful setting. Price was a little stretch for what we were hoping with not a lot of options, but the food we got was very delicious and worth it in the end for the whole experience. Loved the specialty butter and jam spread before dinner, but could have used a little more. Not a cheap date site or for a couple of buddies getting together, but for a real nice night with a lovely lady- my wife loved it! Lobster Mac & Cheese was very flavorful and had plenty of lobster.
The service was fantastic. It was what I would expect at the finest restaurant. And the food was well prepared and presented. They even had edible flowers on the scallops. But the taste was ripped asunder by the excessive salt. The coating of salt on the scallops burned my tongue. The asparagus might have been soaked overnight in brine. Ouch.
The restaurant offers lovely views of the mountains and the lake village at Keystone. My wife absolutely loved her filet mignon. The tuna poke appetizer was huge, beautiful, and delicious. And the service was friendly, helpful, professional and timely. Finally, for all that we received, the prices were very reasonable.
We were taking a luminary of my profession out to dinner. The starters were outstanding, including artichokes (messy, delicous) and flatbread. I have had dinner here a number of times, opted for the pork chop and found the start with it less than optimal, but otherwise entrees were well done. Excellent service. Well mixed drink. And a view that cannot be beat.
The restaurant is located in the Keystone Lodge building and looks out over Keystone Lake toward the Continental Divide. Get there as the sun is setting and you will be treated to an exceptional display of lighting and alpenglo colors reflected off the mountain slopes. Some evenings you will also be in prime position for evening firework displays (not during fire season, however). The food is well prepared and presentation is elegant. An adjacent bar hosts live music on occasion and the drinks are generously poured.
The food was to small for the price i pay.. more than 40$ for one tiny piece of meat? I was very disaponted... everything was going great till the gentleman bring the food.. you guys should make your food not bigger but acording to the price! Wich means yeah... bigger...
We enjoyed our date night while vacationing in Keystone. The views were beautiful especially with a table by the window looking out onto the lake. The food was good but nothing spectacular. The price was average for a higher end restaurant on resort. We spent almost $120 with alcoholic beverages and dessert. I am not sure I have to return but it was a good place for us to try once.
Planned a special dinner here to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. Pictures & menu sounded great online. Nice ambiance, terrible food. Paid over $115 for two which normally would be acceptable for a special occasion but the food was awful. Not what we expected & would not recommend. The bar attached to restaurant is nice.
After enjoying the varied and tasty charcuterie board and a delicious, full lobster/crab bisque, I had one of the three best restaurant steaks I've ever had (ribeye). It was not over-seasoned and was grilled to perfection. My wife also enjoyed the lobster macaroni and cheese and was unable to finish the generous portion. We enjoyed the setting of our private booth which allowed us to easily enjoy private conversation despite other couples and groups being in close proximity. We will definitely return on our next visit to Keystone.
From the Hostess greeting to the after dinner cocktails, the staff , food, and drinks were amazing! They went above and beyond to impress and helped make our friends weekend one to remember. Food was done to perfection! Even with some special requests thrown in. No complaints, rudeness or no we cant do that. Thank you everyone. Your hospitality is 5 stars, refreshing and appreciated.
Conveniently located in the Keystone Lodge. Comfortable for family dining, but with enough acoustic softness to limit noise levels. Nice views of the Keystone Lake activities, Saturday night fireworks, or early evening alpenglo on the west-facing mountains. Wine list has satisfactory options of all types. Food nicely portioned and prepared. Service was a bit slow and cool on this particular visit, but has been warm and timely during several other visits during the past years. During the XMAS holday season a mountain village scene made entirely of chocolate is a wonder to behold, but is not to be eaten.
The entrees were good- very good flavors, good sized portions and good selection. Price point appropriate. Bread basket was disappointing given the quality of the entrees. Carrot cake cheesecake was not what we expected and was dry. Service could have been a little better- a little slow.
We celebrated Valentine's Day at Bighorn Bistro while vacationing at Keystone. The steak special wonderful! The service was great and they also have a great kids menu. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere for fine dining, but felt comfortable with the kids. I would recommend Bighorn Bistro if you are Keystone!
My only "complaint" is that their website said closed at 7 pm, as did Google maps each time I tried to locate the place. And when I called, it went into Keystone activities which was closed for the night. We almost went elsewhere. Fortunately, we trusted Open Table as being correct and our 7:15 reservation was good. It was not obvious that it was inside the hotel - that would have been helpful to know, logistically. The food was good and we enjoyed the evening
I was looking forward to a nice dinner the last night in Keystone and was rather disappointed. I am surprised by the high reviews. I would put his on the same scale as a TGI Friday's or applebees…but as costly as Flemings or Ruth's Chris steakhouse. We had the ahi tuna taco appetizer that tasted more like fried shell than anything else. We also tried the crab bisque and French onion soup and both were lacking flavor. My husband had the lamb and said it was pretty good, but the rest of our meals were just OK. We did enjoy the live music in the bar area and the restaurant had a nice ambiance.
