The meal was extremely disappointing. We both had the chicken skewers which were promised to be fantastic. The flavoring was fine but the chicken was nearly inedible. First off, normally when one gets chicken skewers they are chunks of white meat. The menu didn’t indicate either way, but on the rare occasion that I’ve had chicken skewers that were anything else, they were clearly labeled on the menu. It was hard to tell from the lighting but I’m guessing these were thighs or something else. As my teenage son worked to suppress his gag reflex, he described them alternately as slimy, squishy and gross. Those were apt descriptions. I did my best to eat them because I was extremely hungry from a long day on the slopes, but I only got through about half. We were so hoping to add Blue Plate to our Beaver Creek dining regulars, but there’s no chance in hell I’ll ever be back.

Three of us had two dinners at the Blue Plate, an instant replay which is already an endorsing comment. The food is eclectic but uniformly good in our experience. We all tried the schnitzel, which is superb (either pork or veal). I can also recommend the fish & chips, which has a gorgeous presentation (no rolled up newspaper to be seen). Desserts were fabulous. The wine list is very good, and the wine prices are quite fair. I particularly want to commend the servers for both nights we were there. They were friendly, precise, and made excellent recommendations. We were here two years ago, and came back because we remembered an excellent meal. We were right! Very highly recommended, esp. after a good day of skiing at Beaver Creek.

It was expensive, and overall the food was not good. There were 6 of us for dinner and 3 liked there meal and 3 didn’t like their meal. We didn’t order dessert as food was not consistent and didn’t want to spend the money and be disappointed. Best example I can give is the Greek salad, the lettuce was wilted when served.

Dined here with 3 small children. It was great to get a good meal with nice food that wasn’t just chicken fingers and burgers but the kids were still welcome and enjoyed. Food was delicious- loved the soft warm rolls.

I really appreciated that the wait staff knew what I was talking about when I told them that I have a gluten issue. It was so nice to eat and not worry about what I put in my mouth will not kill me in a few hours. Thank you Blue Plate!

We’ve been here before for lunch with our family and thought it was pretty good so my husband and I decided to try it again for dinner. We were seated quickly with our reservation but it took a good 5-10 minutes before the server came to say hello, give us menus, or water. My husband ordered a glass of wine, and the bottle was bad - even the bar manager confirmed. They brought a new glass but we were surprised that they didn’t take the wine off the bill. We also ordered a small salad and they brought and charged us for a large one. Overall we felt the food was overpriced for what it was ($10 for 2 shrimp Ina tapa!?), especially with mediocre service.

Some of the main courses were acceptable, but the lamb shanks were not. The yogurt sauce was good, but the lamb was not flaky and tender as it should have been. The frog legs were rather dry, too. We had to wait for more than a half hour to be seated for our reservation. I realize that the restaurant cannot control the amount of time that the diners stay, but no gesture was made for our inconvenience.

An evening out with the family during the festive season didn’t disappoint. The staff are quirky and efficient, each person with their own cute character. The food was super tasty , we all loved our meals. Great walking distance for Avon visitors, but well worth the trip for everyone in the area.

With a name like "Blue Plate" and the cuisine classified as "American" I was surprised/confused when 65% of the menu had an Eastern Mediterranean/Syrian take. The wait staff did not seem trained at all and our service was notably awkward. Food was hit or miss: brussel sprouts charred to the point of inedible (I was surprised they even served them), bland greek salad (can make better at home), perfectly cooked delicious steak special--bizarre. The photos and website make this restaurant seem upscale, but my impression was more like a 2.5 out of 5.

Nice enough. Our food was meh. My vegetarian dish was over cooked! The kobocha squash was dry, there was one mushroom, a few radishes, an over abundance of peas but very little coconut curry broth. My husband ordered the special of meat on a stick with macaroni and cheese...both over cooked.
Maybe it was a bad night. Server was great and they had 1/2 price bottles of wine.

Food was mediocre. The service was horrible. From the minute we arrived, we were made to feel like we were
Putting everyone out. From the host not seating us where we wanted (we moved from the patio to the garden accompanied by her sighs and eye rolls) and then shockingly wanted to order drinks and an appetizer the minute we sat down. I could go on and on with other notes from the evening.
I would not go back. Would rather heat up ramen than endure the BS served at blue plate.

My husband was very excited to eat here again after a fabulous meal a few years ago. While our food was great, the service was meh. It started out decent but then ended with us waiting for our waitress while she did shots at the outside bar with the rest of the staff. Plus with the way the outdoor seating is, we got to hear them complain about their day and customers. I'm all about team building but would highly suggest you wait on complaining and partying until all the patrons have left. We didn't sign up for a dinner and show.

Blue Plate has several unusual dishes that they prepare very well. Specifically, their beet dip and brussel sprouts are excellent. It was a busy Friday night, but we were seated promptly, and our server was friendly and efficient. The reason for the "good" rating rather than something higher was that we felt several dishes were salted too liberally. That probably was a one-night phenomenon, but the salt level detracted from our experience. We have eaten here several times in recent months, and didn't think anything was over-salted until this past time.

When we arrived a server balancing 2 or 3 plates turned without looking and ran into me, causing a plate to shatter on the floor and a flying shard of china hit my friend on her ankle and just under her eye breaking the skin. While everyone apologized and brought her ice when we were seated, no one came by to check on her during the meal and didn't even offer to buy her a drink. When she said her dinner was very hot (spicey) the hostess grabbed her plate and defensively said she would take it away, rather than apologizing and asking if they could bring her something else. Our table waiter was just OK and the entire experience was sub-par. We will not go back again.
