Bistro C.V. is located in downtown Steamboat Springs at the corner of 4th and Lincoln. Along with a menu with small plates, cheese and charcuterie, middle courses and main courses, Bistro C.V. also offers a tasting menu that includes three courses plus dessert. The menu is very imaginative with options such as chicken liver pate, yellowtail ceviche tacos, peekytoe crab salad and more, and that is just the small plates.

The middle course menu at Bistro C.V. includes a house specialty, grilled white asparagus with duck prosciutto. For the main course, the house made capellini, wagyu sirloin and bacon-wrapped Colorado lamb loin are favorites. With so many Rocky Mountain contemporary cuisine options it is easy to find a favorite.

I have been going to BCV since fairly soon after they opened and they never cease to deliver. They continue to evolve old favorites without messing them up and always have great new choices. They deliver great flavors and creative combinations that keep us coming back.

I dine at Bistro C.V. every time I go to Steamboat. It is the best restaurant in Steamboat. The food is fantastic and the added bonus is the staff; from the person who seats you to your server and best of all are the chefs! I always eat at the chef's counter and I love it! It's added entertainment at no extra charge to just watch them cook and present the food. It's always so much fun to chat and joke with them. They're great! Bistro C.V. has interesting craft drinks of which we've tried a few, along with their wine list and great food. Did I say the food is great? I can't recommend this restaurant enough and I can't wait to return to Steamboat and to Bistro C.V.

As locals, we have several choices for high end dining including The Laundry and Cafe Diva. Our recent visit to Bistro CV suggests that it should also be on the list. Our appetizer Steak Tartare with raw egg and crostinis was exquisite, and reasonably price. A bit too small to share but delicious. We did share the grilled Romaine which was wise since two large stalks were served. The chicken pot pie with cornmeal was also shareable, albeit pretty spicy if that isn't your cup of tea. Check out there bar special apps and lower happy hour apps prices (until 6:30 we were told.) Decor here is lovely with lots of windows overlooking Lincoln Avenue

The quail, burger and salads were fantastic! The Malbec was excellent too.

We spent a week at Steamboat and this dinner was the highlight of our culinary experience. We took our 2 kids, ages 9 & 13 (both budding foodies), and it was a hit with everyone. Our server, Jeff, was excellent as he gave us actual opinions about drinks/food rather than telling us that everything was great on the menu. Love that! Between the 4 of us, we had the Wagyu Beef Sirloin, Diver Scallops, Chicken & Chorizo PotPie and the Gnocchi. Everything was fabulous! It was on the pricey side, but definitely worth it for a special night out while on vacation.

My high expectations were not met on my only visit to Bistro CV for dinner. The service was and environment was great, but the food was lacking. The food was not creative, nor was it delicious. I am not a difficult critic, but I eat at enough fine dining restaurants to know when the expected value is not being met. I would recommend several other fine dining restaurants in Steamboat.

We enjoyed the food. It was small and artsy just as we had expected but to have spent over $350 including tip (only one martini for each of the two of us over the wine pairing that came with the Chef's selection which we ordered) and not be satisfied was extremely disappointing. The wine pours which accompanied each course were not even full pours; somewhere between a tasting and a 6oz pour and the meal left enough room for us to actually eat another whole meal elsewhere after!!!

My husband and I dined here twice during our vacation in Steamboat so that we could explore the menu.. I loved every single thing I tried. The asparagus salad was full of wonderful thoughtful flavors. We also had the CV burger and ate every last bite. The diver sea scallops were cooked to perfection. The cocktail menu is also well done. The wait staff were knowledgeable about the food and had on point suggestions about dishes. I am a Houston restaurant scene foodie and this place is wonderful. I will be back when I return to Steamboat.
