Great place! It’s located across the parking lot from a convenience store gas station. My wife had a weird look on her face when we pulled in like she was thinking I was taking her out to a convenience store for dinner. When we sat down in the white table cloth dinning room with a fresh flower on every table, things changed with her demeanor. When she found her favorite Chardonnay by the glass on the surprisingly good wine list she cracked a huge smile. So did I. The menu was outstanding and for a mountain establishment surprisingly reasonable. Her Chicken Alfredo was the “best food” she had of all the places we had been on our trip (and by that night I had taken her to several of the best rated spots in Avon). My 10 oz filet was cooked perfectly to my medium rare liking the first time and gave my favorite Texas steak house back home a run for their money for its perfection of flavor, it’s tenderness and it’s incredible value. I was stunned by the quality of the food, the value for a mountain restaurant and the unbelievable service. We will be going back to this place!!

1st visit for us
Food delicious and well prepared
Trout dinner was excellent!
Server gracious but service for beverages and to take dinner order was quite slow - but a busy night and the restaurant was full.
We were seated on the “porch” and it was quite noisy. Think they could use some fabric on the porch to absorb some of the sound. We aren’t that “picky” but for the price of the meals and the white tablecloth atmosphere we think it could be a more peaceful environment. We would/will go back!

Northside Kitchen was recommended by an Avon local for a birthday dinner, but the whole experience fell very short of expectations and turned out to be the most underwhelming dining experience of our trip to Colorado.

The food was delicious. We were a party of 5 and had the filet, the prime rib, the lamb and the duck (2)---everyone was very happy with their choice. My husband orders duck whenever it is on a menu, and he commented that this was the best duck this side of the Atlantic! We will definitely dine here on our next trip.

It is a little disconcerting when you drive up, it’s in the same parking lot as a gas station with limited parking. There is an overflow lot across the street. But once you walk in, it is very nice. Not stuffy, but wide open great setting. Kid friendly, but not a Mac and cheese or hamburger kinda place.
Wait staff and hostess experience all very good. Menu very eclectic and there was something for everyone. There is a 3 course fixed price menu option that most at our table chose and it turned out very nice. Appetizer are a bit pricey, but very nice and with the 3 course option, a much better deal. Desert options were plenty, portion size was reasonable for a desert, not huge, but a nice portion for one or two if each wanted just a taste. Great coffee/cappuccino afterwards. And at the end, our waiter brought our table of 5, 9 large donuts made on sight in a box. Nice touch at the end. Overall great experience.

Fantastic food, service, and a wine list to rival top tier restaurants but at an affordable price. We first went for breakfast and enjoyed the chicken fried filet mignon. The food was so good that we came back for dinner. Dinner did not disappoint - the homemade gnocchi melted in our mouth and the prime rib was the best we had. Of course we enjoyed the meal with a great bottle of wine. After dinner, we moved to the bar to finish our wine and had the pleasure of meeting and talking to the owner. His sincere pleasure at providing a quality experience at reasonable price was refreshing. Northside kitchen had definitely found the magic ingredients.

I found this restaurant by accident as I was looking for it's sister restaurant Southside Benders. What a lucky accident. In the period of five days I ate there twice. My first time I ordered the salmon dinner. Being in Colorado, I has limited expectations. I was pleasantly surprised. The salmon and mango salsa were excellent, particularly with the rice and spiced asparagus. Eric at the bar provided good conversation.
On my second visit four days later, I ordered it again. I think it was ever better the second time.

Fun restaurant and we liked the heated patio extension. Had a nice waiter, one of got the $39 appy/entree/dessert deal and the other a caesar salad (should have done the caesar dressing but changed for dietary reasons) and everything was VERY good. Easy to get to just on the "north side" of the highway. glad we had reservations.

Truly mediocre food. So disappointing after reading good reviews. How does overcomes flavorless food pass as high end cooking out here? Waiter ignored our appetizer order. Tried to bring us the wrong wine. The fish was totally overcooked. The meatballs were tough and had weird flavor. Pasta over cooked. The lamb shank was tasteless like it was braised in water - no seasoning nor herbs nor anything flavorful at all. Julienned vegetables steamed and over cooked and flavorless, like a bad 1970s idea of good cuisine. Really just such a shame, it’s so easy to properly season and cook good ingredients...

My wife and I are long time fans. The serve the best trout in Colorado; consistently offering the best quality food at fair prices in the Valley. Jim is a unique owner who walks the floor and talks to all the patrons. I recently left my phone on the table and called it 30 minutes later, Steve was safeguarding it and even dropped it off in Edwards at the end of shift to save me a trip!

We both had our regular orders...don't mess with perfection!
I had the tomato soup with roasted red peppers ...it was delicious! Also the Halibut, was very good, and had a great flavor. Although the halibut was great, I preferred it more the last time I had it when it had more of a broth which made the fish not as dry. We also had the chicken fried filet and a Caesar salad....which was also very good. We had the same waiter as last time who is excellent...although it seemed to take a while to get our drinks from the bar. We love Northside for good food and service at a great price.
