In celebration of 20 plus years of very special friendships amongst pairs of mothers and daughters, as well as an upcoming birthday, we could not have been more pleased with our dining experience. Our waiter Clay took great care of us from start to finish and we thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor dining ambience literally on the sidewalk of Main Street Breckenridge . Highlights included the scrumptious Buffalo Cauliflower for a shared app and the very satisfying summery Strawberry Collins cocktails all around. Our main dishes of Scottish salmon, Colorado striped bass, penne Roberto, and the shrimp and sausage were exceptional. The triple layer chocolate mousse cake was the perfect ending for our wonderful dining experience. Thanks for one memorable meal!

We always have a good meal at Blue River Bistro. The in house seating was set-up nicely and the outdoor seating is cute. There are a few barrel tables for two that would be best for those that can sit on stools or high back chairs and lean over a bit to eat. We had lunch this time and both our sandwiches were good, huge, but good. The mint ginger martini was pretty tasty as well. Cheers.

The service was wonderful right out the gate, and the food was amazing. The price is high but the quality of service and food is completely worth the food. You get what you pay for here.

The Blue River Bistro is the best in town. Not only was the food, service and ambiance perfect, their attention to CV-19 protocols were very good without feeling intrusive. The menu is outstanding. We have to come back because we had to pick one entree and there were so many more we wanted to try.

By far our favorite restaurant in Breckenridge. Everything we ordered was exceptional and cooked exactly to order. Kid-friendly too, which is nice for the parents who want fine dining but don’t have the option to leave the kids behind.

Simply love everything about this restaurant. Let’s start with pre dinner cocktails... the martinis are awesome. The food is always spot on delicious- no matter what you order. The wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable. They were great with our 7 yr old grandson. This is still one of our must to go places in Breck when we get to the mountains!

This was at least our third visit, and we were not disappointed. We rave about this place, rightfully so. They are also well organized during this time of COVID distancing and masking. M'lady had the pinenut crusted SCOTTISH SALMON, caprese risotto, lemon butter sauce, fresh basil pesto, colorado zucchini $30, I had porcini-dusted, twelve-ounce PORK CHOP: wild mushroom + squash forbidden rice risotto, breckenridge bourbon bacon jam [GF] $36. Both were outstanding. LOVE THIS PLACE!

Followed trip advisor advice and went here for our first meal in Breckenridge. It was outstanding. The calamari was tender and tasty. The beet salad was fresh and enough for us to split. The paella combined several different flavors and was a generous portion. We both had leftovers. The wine and beer list was perfect. We hope to go again while we are here.

Under the radar spot in Breck that has amazing food and service, and a good wine list. Would highly recommend trying multiple appetizers for dinner. Just ask the staff to pace it.... wonderful.

Blue River Bistro is one of our favorite spots in Breckenridge. Our party of 6 had a great table (we were glad to be indoors as it rained outdoors during our dinner). They have plexiglass partitions separating tables, and all the staff are wearing masks so we felt very safe. Also saw staff wiping down menus and surfaces several times. Food was excellent as always. But best of all was our server, Jess. An excellent server, Jess, attended to our table right away even tho we didn't all arrive at the same time. She was friendly, remembering our names and humorous - telling us about another Breck restaurant that sells face masks with a hole for a drink straw. Jess was calm and unrushed even though the restaurant was very busy. She was knowledgeable recommending specials and helping us decide what to order. She was quick with our drink orders, and remained attentive throughout the meal. One of the best most efficient and welcoming servers we have ever encountered. Really set our experience at Blue River above and beyond! We'll definitely return!
