Ken & Sue's is always a no brainer when it comes to fine dining in Durango. The ambiance, the food, and of the service is always excellent. It was my wifes and my anniversary and Edgar made it so special and relaxing. Can't say enough about the food and service and we can't recommend it more times than we should. A must in Durango!!!!

Although we ran late, we advised the restaurant which held the table. The food was very good. Everyone was happy with their food. The salads were excellent. The server tried to be pleasant but was very scatter brained. He forgot ordered items, served us with other tables' foods, forgot our water etc.

Ken & Sue's is the restaurant we go to most often. It is right in the center of Durango, close to movie theaters. The staff knows us, and we feel very comfortable.

Loved our dinner-one suggestion- my husband who has a dairy and egg allergy ordered the pork. It came with mashed sweet potatoes but they weren't included because of the butter that was already added. That's fine and we appreciate not being exposed but a substitute should be offered. After asking, we did get rice. Thank you.

This was our third visit, since we live in Houston and only come to Durango every year or so. Our waitstaff Anna was very personable. The food was delicious and the wine good too. We had been looking forward to this visit and were not disappointed. We chatted a little with the people at the adjacent table, one of whom's mother was a war bride from England. They had noticed our English accents. When I asked Anna for our check, she said, with a smile, that it had been taken care of by the people at the adjacent table!! We were flabbergasted, and thanked them profusely! It made our evening extra special!

Been coming here for years.....never disappointed! Best restaurant in Durango! Living in Florida, we see our share of seafood on the menu.....Ken & Sues Tuesday scallop special is absolutely the best! Have never been disappointed here...top-notch food and always made to feel welcome by hostesses and servers alike! Can't wait to come back next year!

Food was very good and waiter was also very good. Hostess was attentive. The noise level was
very loud as the table next to us was carrying on a very loud conversation the entire time we were there. This is not the restaurant's fault but it did put a damper on the evening.

No problem with reservation. Service was very good. Salad was fresh. Tomato basil soup was excellent, and was a hefty bowl portion. The salmon was excellent.

NOW - the grouper tasted just a bit fishy. A little lemon covered it up, but it was below our expectation of freshness, having dined at K&S before. Will return again, but expect more, and won't hesitate to complain if freshness is questionable again.

We are locals who visit often, and over a long period of time. We believe K&S to be the best in town, and always recommend to friends and other visitors. It is always our first choice when family or friends visit.

This was our first visit to Ken/Sues and we found it very nice. The special drink brought to our table was filled TO THE RIM and the waitress was given applause as she set it before me without a spill!! The apps were very tasty, the food very good except for a bad piece of meat I had that was quickly replaced with another meal and no cost for my entree because of the meat problem, not even the replaced meal. The dessert was also excellent.. All in all we had a lovely evening and it was not rushed!

I was very disappointed in this restaurant. The menu was tired...it seems there was no focus. Asian, Mexican, Italian. Would recommend an update with farm to table focus. My guest ordered fish..and the wrong fish was brought to the table. The prime rib was overcooked. Reviews were excellent, however, was not our experience. Server was nice but did not have a confidence. He lacked the knowledge of the menu or wine list. We were visiting Durango and would not recommend this restaurant. We dined at Seasons and it was superb.. food and server. Ken and Sue's not memorable. Food mediocre.

We were a little early for the 6PM seating but no problems we were seated immediately. Drink order taken as we sat down. Menu was widely varied with the pricing we thought was very reasonable. Meal was excellent. We would recommend to all of our friends any time they happen to be in Durango.

Service wasn't that good. I ordered drink of the day and it was spilled all over when delivered to table from the gentleman working the bar. They didn't even bother to clean it up when there was a group of old folks that could've walked in it. Water refills resulted again in water spilled all over table. Food was top notch and never disappoints. They did take the drink off the bill. The food is the only reason I come back.

We loved this place. First night in town went for dinner, Since we couldn't get reservations until very late, we opted to sit at the bar. What a great choice. Bar attendant was very friendly, attentive and much fun. We had a wonderful meal!! It was so good in fact we returned another night and sat on the patio. Food is always great!!

 (Phoenix)·Dined on August 11, 2017

We were two out-of-town visitors to Durango. Ken & Sue's was highly recommended to us by a local.

On the plus side, the service was excellent and the noise level was quiet. - always our preference.

Continuing on the plus side, the first courses (a portobello soup and a very crisp, fresh salad) were well prepared and delicious.

We ran into trouble when it came to the mains. The grouper was excellent. However, the Friday Night Special - prime rib - was a disaster. This was not prime - over 50% of this slice was gristle and fat, making much of it inedible. In retrospect, we should have said something to our server but we chose not to make a fuss.

Would we go back? Probably not .

I live in Albuquerque, NM and have visited Durango, Co 6 times over the last year. Durango is full of great restaurants and this one is easily our favorite. Love the food, great service, fantastic ambiance whether you eat inside, the patio, or the bar. The patio is our favorite!

It's our second visit to K&S. We are from Erie, PA and had a great dinner last time in Durango. I did not like our table under the portico (claustrophobic) and the hostess immediately and kindly relocated us to a much nicer table. From there it was a lovely evening. Hannah was a great waitress, the food was wonderful, beautiful wine list and the dessert was dangerously delicious. Highly recommend it to anyone and would definitely return when in Durango.

We love going to Ken and Sues! Quite honestly, they are the best restaurant in town. The prices are reasonable for the quality of the dinners you receive, they have many, many choices on the menu, and the staff is always friendly and inviting to everyone. Ken and Sue are very nice people, and do their best to provide quality food and service for the people of Durango. Thank you, always a pleasure.
