This is our favorite restaurant in Breckinridge. We went twice during our week trip and had different items each time. The paella and ciopinno were outstanding. The short ribs were so tender and flavorful. Definitely make a reservation in advance. It is a little loud but we weren’t looking for a quiet evening, just great food. The servers were helpful and had been there for a while. Can’t wait to go back!!

We had a fantastic meal. We were seated outside which provided an intimate dining experience. Our server, Liz was great! Will most definitely return for the Buffalo short ribs!

Very crowded. Thank goodness they take reservations. The staff was just slammed but they got us seated outside. Since this was a get together with out of town friends, talk was impossible inside. Food was good and plentiful.

The crispy tiger shrimp were outstanding, as was the tomato basil soup. My husband enjoyed the italian sandwich and friends enjoyed their spinach salads along with the focaccio.

Dinner was a different story. I had the salmon, which was overcooked (but not a catastrophe) as was the pork chop that my husband had - EXTREMELY overcooked, dry as a bone. The creme brulee and the chocolate mousse cake were very good.

The food was outstanding, from the bison short ribs to the Keema. Our server was both knowledgeable and very helpful as several things we tried were new to us. Cant wait to dine there again.

We dined at Blue River Bistro on July 18. Great ambiance and service - terrible food. The chicken parm was not edible. Save your money and go elsewhere.

The one thing we really don like about the restaurant is the air flow. If the temperature is warm outside, we might dine elsewhere because it gets hot and stuffy inside. We’ve dined outside several times to avoid being uncomfortable inside.

We brought our family of 9 here for dinner. Adults, some with food restrictions, and children. The food was outstanding and the service impeccable! Our server talked to the kids making them feel grown up and important. Food was delivered quickly and every bite was delicious! Highly recommend!

Brought our friends from California for dinner. None of us were disappointed. When I had the salmon that was outrageous, I had the pork chop that was phenomenal, and the men had the fillets which were fantastic. We shared the cream Brulé for dessert which was wonderful. Would highly recommend it for anybody looking for a good restaurant great food and service.

Fantastic dinner and wonderful service from Johnny. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and local. Service was friendly unobtrusive and yet very tentative. I would highly recommend but you need to reserve as it was full inside and out .
