Couloir is a fine dining establishment inside the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Wyoming. Mountain views can be seen from all around the restaurant, including a beautiful view of the ski slopes when the season is right. high on a hill, this gem of a restaurant is a lovely place for an event or an elegant private party. It has an upscale vibe from floor to ceiling, encouraging guests to relax and enjoy the beauty both inside and outside the restaurant itself.
Cuisine at Couloir is inspired by new American dishes, and the menu is full of favorites from around the country dressed up and properly prepared. Some of the popular choices include the bison tenderloin, ahi tuna, steelhead trout and foie gras. Wine pairings are offered for all the entrees served at Couloir, so guests can enjoy a great selection of wines that go perfectly with the meal.
The restaurant has considered every detail to make the evening rememberable. Cocoa or Bailey's for the gindola ride up, an amazing view of the mountain while dining, an attentive, friendly and knowledgeable wait staff, and of course the food was outstanding - fresh, innovative, well seasoned entrees. Wine pairings are a nice treat if you are able to afford it.
There is probably not a better view to any restaurant around. At the top of Jackson hole. But the portion size for a bowl of soup that is not even a four ounce ladle is just wrong. After everyone ordered an appetizer and a main course, they were still hungry. That should just not happen. With the prices that they charge and I realize its at the top of the mountain, you can make the portion size a little bigger.
Never before have paid so much and got so little. Ravioli appetizer literally have one ravioli on the plate!
View is amazing. A little warm in window seat tables but I bet it is comfortable and really lovely at night. I had a squash dish and gin drink that were both amazing!
Fantastic restaurant! Can't beat the views and the food was exceptional. The portions weren't large but my companion and I were both completely full by the end of the fixed menu. We also did the wine pairing and the pairings were both unique and exceptional!
As the sun was setting over the mountains, I enjoyed the FOIE GRAS, CARAMELIZED FENNEL, and WAGYU BEEF ZABUTON. All were outstanding. Dessert sampler also delicious, particularly the apple tart!
Great food & view!!!
Overall a great experience. The ambiance was lacking and the lighting was too bright - including cheap track lighting with spot lights killing the vibe. There were some waiters that were giving people the royal treatment - Sauternes with the foie gras, cookies for the gondola ride back, etc. - but I had to remind out waiter of these perks. A bit expensive, but nothing too crazy.
Terrific menu and view. If only the patio had been open, this would have been the finest overall alpine stop we've ever had in all our ski trips. Our compliments to the chef!
Poised on top of a hill (reachable via ski gondola), with the town of Jackson and the mountain range in view, Coloir provides one of the most unique and amazing fine dining experiences anywhere. They have a full menu and impressive wine list, but I would encourage anyone to try the 4 or 7 course tasting menu with wine pairing. The food was phenomenal and the wine pairings - with inclusions from Alsace, Austria, Tuscany, Loire Valley and Burgundy - were extremely well done. The service was outstanding, and each course was presented along with a detailed explanation from the sommelier regarding the wine. If you are a foodie and like the view from the top of an 8,000 foot peak while dining, you will love Coloir.
Couloir is perfect for a special occasion or treat for those who enjoy fine dining. The experience starts by riding the gondola; arrive before dark to get the best views. Have a drink at the bar while waiting for your table and stare out the huge windows at the Tetons.
We got the 4 course tasting menu with wine pairings. All the staff we met explained the courses and wines to us. It was delicious. Then we rode the gondola down with night views of the valley. Great experience.
This was our second time at Couloir and it was just as fabulous as the first time. Four thumbs up!!
We spent President's week with our family staying at Teton Village on a ski vacation. On Friday we gathered a group of 9 to meet for a 12:15pm reservation at Coulier. The restaurant is located at the top of the gondola, so if you are not skiing and have a reservation for lunch, you have to purchase a $20 scenic pass just to take the gondola up to the restaurant. I was unaware of the charge so that took me by surprise. When making a reservation via Internet or phone that specific detail should have been included. The location of the restaurant offers a stunning view of the landscape with floor to ceiling windows in the main room of the restaurant. Upon arrival, our table was originally located in the back of the restaurant which offered only limited views, however I only had to request a change of table and the manager swiftly arranged another table in the main room. The menu was somewhat limited but the selection provided many favorable choices for lunch including short ribs, cheese board, seared tuna and also offered a children's menu. Overall a wonderful experience.
The service and view were great. The food was way overpriced and sub-par. They made us pick a 4 or 7 course option. This wasn't stated on the menu when we selected this restaurant. Combined with a bottle of wine it was over $300 for the 2 of us. Several of the courses were so greasy we couldn't even finish them. I would absolutely not recommend this restaurant. There are plenty of other much better options in the village.
Fantastic dinner! Everything was fabulous! Noteworthy was the buffalo tenderloin, served medium rare. Philip took excellent care of our party, making it a truly memorable evening in Jackson. Highly recommended!
Seven minute gondola ride to the top. Portions were perfect in terms of being satisfied without being stuffed although we heard a few people in the gondola complain about the portions being small for the price. Quality of the food was excellent. Preparations were unusual but not so unusual that we felt out of our comfort zone. We happened to be there the day a huge storm literally shut down the mountain but the staff were reassuring - and told us we had time for dessert before we had to head down the mountain. We went up in the gondola again the next day and ate at Piste - a more casual eatery that was also very good.
This actually would be a 4 1/2 stars review, if I could mark 1/2 stars.
We had a great evening at Couloir. We ordered their 5-course Valentine's dinner with wine pairings.
We don't go out to eat much because we cook really good food at home. So when we go out, we search for food that's so delicious it makes you linger over each bite. Some of Couloir's dishes were real standouts: the oysters starter, the fois gras, the fennel salad, and the walu main. The wine pairings, for the most part, were fantastic.
Service was excellent. An added benefit was sitting at a window table and watching the groomers work in a blizzard all through dinner. The ride up the gondola to dinner is festive with the blanket, hot chocolate and whiskey, but it would have been even better if we'd had a blanket for the ride down, too.
Highly recommended; though expensive, it was well worth it, especially for a special occasion.
Hard to believe you can find food this good 10,000 feet above sea level in the middle of nowhere. Check the weather forecast, then book a table when the sun is going to be shining. If it's foggy, your plate will still look spectacular, but you'll miss out on the incredible view out the window.
Too expensive for the portions served. $16 for a salad consisting of 1/4 apple only and $26 for a 2 scallop appetizer. Couloir needs to rethink their menu and portion serving.
