Eolus Bar & Dining Ratings and Reviews
Really appreciated our server Barney guiding us with wine recommendations. Great wine list. Interesting locally sourced food. Beet salad with goat cheese very refreshing and delicious. Asian fusion King salmon was amazing. Wonderful desserts. Looking forward to returning!
We come here every time we are in town (1x a month) with our kids (12, 10, 9). The food is five star...order anything with lobster! Comes with this beurre Blanc sauce that is delicious. Hubby always gets Manhattan and lobster burger. I always get the cab by the glass (changes often—high quality $20 by the glass) and the seafood stew which is loaded with lobster, mussels, salmon etc.—Divine. This last time I got the surf and turf which was equally incredible. Kids get the lobster served corn dog style, the kids salmon and kids burger respectively. The service is always top notch. If you come early they have their sushi rolls on happy hour. It’s a treat we save up for both calorie wise and pocketbook wise. But there is nowhere else we would rather eat in Durango.
Menu is always inventive. Service is excellent and appropriately attentive. The owners are serious about creating and executing a dining experience that is unique. They consistently pull it off. This is our favorite place in a town blessed with wonderful dining options.
Great craft cocktails. There was a wide range of creative appetizers ranging from lobster corn dogs to sushi. There were a lot of gluten free options or adaptations available. The wine list is outstanding and includes wines that are difficult to find. We had an outstanding French Burgundy recommended by the owner. Service is prompt,and attentive without being overbearing. The entrees were great as were the deserts. The restaurant adds there own twist to nearly everything on the menu. This is one of the finest restaurants anywhere.
The food was really wonderful, but a bit pricey. Service was attentive, but we waited almost 35 minutes for our appetizer. The staff did offer bread-nice, but the restaurant really wasn’t that busy. Didn’t seem we should have to wait quite that long. We all enjoyed our food and overall, it was a very pleasant dining experience!
Food was excellent as always. One of our favorite places to go. Service that s time was mediocre at best. Our waiter didn't seem attentive at all. We don't want a waiter that is overbearing, but a waiter that pays attention is always a plus... This was not the case. Never once asked us if we would like more wine after our glasses were empty. Didn't even ask if we would like bread until a minute before we got our food. Every other table around us were asked if they wanted bread right away and fresh bread was brought to them through out. A large group was sat near us and as soon as that group was sat, all of our waiters attention was on that group.
When I tip, I believe a tip is earned...that being said, the tip left reflected the service received and was still too much.
Every other visit, the waiter or waitress have been excellent and even remember us. Only hope our next visit we get one of those again and only hope the service is better next time.
This is an epic meal. The hanger steak and sauce are culinary art at its best. Best greens on the planet. Recommended wine by the owner was a perfect pairing. And the chai tea creme brûlée was inventive and wonderful and it was all I could do not to lick the bowl clean. If you’re in Durango you’re missing out if you’re not eating here.
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!
