Eolus Bar & Dining Ratings and Reviews
The $50 per plate steak special was inedible, it was so tough and stringy.
When asked how everything was, we told the server that the meat was very tough. She asked if we wanted anything else and my wife asked for more mashed potatoes. They charged us extra for them!
Dinner for two was over $150 for the worst meal we've ever had.
Never go back.
Had dinner with friends and everything was wonderful. Highly recommend the seafood stew. So creative and flavorful with lobster, scallops, and lots of other seafood. Very delicate broth seasoned with fennel. As good as anything in NYC. If you have room, have the donuts for dessert. They are really a treat! The calamari is a great appetizer to share. Bon Apetit!
Wonderful Happy Hour menu - One of the best in town! Gluten Free hamburger buns are made on the premises and are THE BEST I've ever tasted! Eolus's Steaks are so delicious! Their sushi and warm beet salad are fabulous, too! The Staff could not be more cordial. Seriously, just an all around great place to eat and the prices are very reasonable!
I've probably written 10 reviews of Eolus over the years. It's out favorite restaurant in Durango. This time I had the Salmon with Asian Bar-b-que sauce. Second time I've had this at Eolus, and let me just pause for a second.....and remember.....and say....."Ahhhhhhhh". It was SO DANG GOOD!! The Salmon came from Silver Wave, a local couple who catch salmon in Alaska each year and sell locally. My wife and I bought 10 lbs......and damned if I wouldn't like to buy a bunch of Eolus Bar-b que sauce......it was that good!
We ate at Eolus for my wife's birthday dinner. Driving from Cortez we were really hoping it was worth our trip. They greeted us with a Happy Birthday wish and had a table set up for us. Our server was very friendly and on top of everything. The food was excellent! We will definitely be going back!
My husband and I love Eolus. I ordered the Burger and Lobster Tail. Really it was not a lobster tail. It was a shredded piece of lobster but certainly no tail. I like the restaurant and usually have good meals there, but don't say you are going to have a lobster tail when it is only a piece. That just makes me feel like I was ripped off.
Superb in every aspect. Sushi roll and calamari starters were wonderful. 4 separate entrees were phenomenal. Only negative was from daughter in law who thought dressing on hanger steak greens was too much. Probably the best duck breast ever for me. Wife really loved the salmon and our son was enthralled with the seafood stew.
Chocolate Trio dessert was truly outstanding. Lemon curd with gluten free donuts was over the top but the beignets were so-so. Great service from Eric who explained the dishes very well. A definite must return restaurant on our list.
Usually we are wowed by Eolus's food and presentation, but this trip not so much. Nothing was "bad", and our service was very good....but we all felt the food lacked the individual touch that is usually present. Hopefully this was just an "off" night....we'll try again!
We celebrated our anniversary at Eolus. They always take such great care of us but they treated us even more extra special. Food is always consistent and excellent. My husband had prime rib two ways and I had seafood capellini. A special dessert was excellent and we always have the scalllop and prime rib appetizer. Outstanding. Best restaurant and best servers in Durango!!!!
We were staying in the Durango area and decided to give this restaurant a try. We were very pleased with the food and service. My wife really enjoyed the beet salad and the scallop appetizer. I had the seafood stew which was very tasty. About the only issue was the price of wine and cocktails. I know this is where restaurants make most of their money. But $15 for a glass of a red blend was a bit too much.
The food was very good. I had the Surf and Turf, my wife had the Grilled Salmon. Both of our waitresses (Austin & Kacey) were very nice, attentive, and very proficient. It was a very memorable experience for a special occasion (51st Wedding Anniversary) Will definitely go back when in the area.
Very happy we made reservations on a busy Fri evening, we were squeezed into a small table in an aisle way in the upstairs section. The food here is upscale fabulous and definitely worth a visit. My swordfish was good with a really great sauce. My wife's duck was over the top delicious. Great wine list, full bar and good bread made in house. All the best ingredients sourced locally as much as possible.
My husband and I stopped in Durango for the night while on our way to the Grand Canyon . We saw that Eolus had received good reviews so we decided to try it. Everything about our experience was fabulous! Our server was top notch. He recommended that we start with the appetizer special, which was stuffed squash blossoms. They were fantastic! My husband had halibut and I had A wonderful beet salad for dinner. All of the food is local and everything is made right there. They have a great wine and beer selection. We really hope we will be able to pass through Durango and visit Eolus again.
This was our 2nd visit to Eolus - first was for our sons' college graduation and it was just as wonderful this time dining, as well. We were able to sit up on the patio, and the sunset was amazing - as was the food! Really enjoy all the local offerings - from steak to the local blueberries in the cobbler. Love coming to Eolus whenever we get to Durango!!
We ate in Eolus with friends from Scottsdale. The food is excellent, and satisfied a vegetarian in our group and a gluten sensitive. The atmosphere is elegant and noise level low enough to easily allow conversation. We always enjoy eating there and will return.
Eolus is our go-to restaurant. In our opinion it is one of the very best restaurants in our area. The food is of very high quality, the atmosphere is calm and elegant, and the quality of the staff at Eolus is far, far superior to any other restaurant making the dining experience just outstanding - and has done so consistently for the 15-20 times we have eaten there.
Absolutely wonderful!! We were visiting Durango and found recommendations for this great restaurant on Open Table so we decided to visit and were not disappointed!! Everything was terrific and we wish we lived closer to be able to enjoy it often.
We started with the Calamari/Shrimp appetizer. We think it was the best such dish we have had (and we order calamari quite often as it's my husband's favorite). It was tossed with a sweet and sour sauce that complimented the seafood perfectly - not too spicy but it gave it a little kick. The breading on the calamari and shrimp was light and crispy. Perfection!
I then enjoyed the Chopped Salad. It was so unique and so delicious. All the various components were laid out in a separate line - they were not tossed. The presentation was beautiful. And, the ingredients were creative, colorful and complimented one another. Highly recommended.
The service was top-notch: efficient but we were not rushed. All of the staff were very friendly and attentive.
The drink pours were good - unlike at many other restaurants.
Eolus certainly deserves 5 stars in all categories.
NOT gluten free friendly. We are celiac. The menu had many items marked as gluten free possible and the menu stated ask about our gluten free options. We did, and on every "gluten free possible" we asked about we were told NO. Lazy or unskilled chef? Terrible waiter? Don't know.
