Blue River Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Our server Pat was remarkable. He even impressed the teenagers at the table. Food was excellent. Great flavors. Appreciated the attention to gluten free allergy needs and entree modifications as needed. Highly recommend. Devoured the beet salad. Enjoyed the Chicken Marsala. Shrimp and Sausage pasta was a winner. A truly delightful experience.
We've been here a number of times and it's always great. Certainly a top choice in Breck.
I would comment however that one thing that is always of concern at some other lower end places actually stood out this time. We've all been in a restaurant where the floors are slippery, greasy, gross...well blue river actually exhibited that in spades this time. I've noted this in sports bars and fast food joints and it hints at either uncleanliness in the kitchen or lack of attention to detail. I know it's tough to keep floors clean in a snowy ski town but the source of this was not from outside and should be made known to the manager and staff. I must say though that the quality, the food, the staff, waiter, service and experience remained outstanding.
Nice casual dinner with the family. Really enjoyed the live singer - added a nice relaxing touch to the whole atmosphere of the restaurant. Good choice of songs and not too loud either. Food was great and booth where we sat was ready for us the moment we arrived for our booking
My family ate here on a Saturday night for our last meal of a 10 day vacation. It was the perfect way to end our trip on a high note. The food was fabulous! Every person in our party loved their entree as well as a variety of appetizers and salads. I always appreciate a menu that has so many great-sounding choices that it makes it hard to decide. The Oscar Salmon was outstanding.....just the right ratio of lump crab to salmon. My husband enjoyed the Chicken Parm and my daughter had a pasta dish that did not disappoint. I loved the energy in the room....loud, but in a good way. It was snowing outside (for the first time in 2 weeks!) and that added to the festive atmosphere. Great service, great wine, great food....I can’t wait until my next trip to Breckenridge!
Came here with the family for our daughters 13th bday. Excellent food starting from the appetizers onwards. Everything was freshly prepared and perfectly done. Desserts are fabulous. Brought bday ice cream with a candle for our special girl and she loved it. Our table tried a variety of foods from the lamb venison trout and ribs. Everything was excellent. Don’t miss the Appetizers. Have to make reservations.
We arrived with reservations and were seated at our appointed time. Hospitality staff was friendly and attentive. Wait staff greeted us promptly and the supreme service never slowed down. The Brie appetizer dish was excellent and a generous portion. All 4 members of our party ordered a different entre and we all thouroughly enjoyed our choice. Portions were generous. Dessert menu was not as impressive but we selected 2 items to share between all of us since we were celebrating a birthday. Next time time we will skip dessert. All in all a fabulous dining experience except for the bit too loud background music.
We have made this a must stop when we visit Breckenridge. Usually the last night of our trip to celebrate a great vacation. I made reservations online, requesting a table in a specific spot and they had a table ready for us right where we wanted to be when we arrived. Waitresses have been fabulous both visits. Food incredible! Love the atmosphere. Highly recommend it to anyone.
