This is an excellent restaurant with good food and a varied menu. We go there often and always have an enjoyable time!

Sitting at the kitchen bar provides a unique experience of watching the food prep and how well the entire staff works together!

The food was wonderful and we had excellent service. The atmosphere is relaxed and family friendly. I thought that it was a good balance between adults without children and with children. We were able to try many items on the menu.

For a nice restaurant with great food and bar selection they continue to not have Blue Cheese Olives for martinis. Cant be that hard to do. Probably have a wedge salad so blue cheese is in the house. Only higher end place in the Vail Valley that doesn't have them.

They need some type of table cloth or placement mat. Food on the table gets messy.

Tables too close together in the larger dining area. Felt like we were eating with strangers.

The food is very good and will return

Original and tasty meal. Chef likes to build things high. The meatloaf was a tall, delicious surprise as was the fish and chips with awesome fries, But the Colorado lamb shank was the call. Shout out to Jess our server with a terrific attitude and great menu tips.

What a disappointment. We went years ago and the bolognese was amazing. This time, the bolognese was just meh and so was everything else. We had reservations for 815 pm, didn't even get water until 840 pm, and weren't even able to order until 850 pm. Not coming back after that sad waste of time and money.

We love Blue Plate! Service is exceptional, owner comes by to greet everyone & ensure satisfaction, and the food is always exceptional. We favor the German dishes, but this time my wife had one of the Valentine specials - crab legs. Outstanding. And the wine list is always good, with interesting domestic & imported choices. Can’t miss with Blue Plate!

Blue Plate
Responded on February 13, 2020

We're sorry for your disapointment. I 've spoken to the staff about your visit, they recall you didn't like that our Ceaser salad had anchovies. They are a traditional topping, while also being in the menu description. We were also told after the salad came you said you were allergic to papria. While we don't use paprika, sumac is lightly used. Our chef/owner has middle eastern roots & thats why. If you let us know of any alleries, we're happy to prepare your meal safe from those ingredients!

We spent five nights in Beaver Creek. Blue Plate was the best value and most creative menu. Cheese fondue originally caught our eye but the schnitzel was delicious and wine menu very fairly priced. If you’re into Thai and Asian there are great choices. Don’t be put off by its location in Avon shopping center. There are several spaces inside which make it cozy and quiet. We will definitely go back.

The food and atmosphere were excellent. Brought my kids and the kids menu had a lot of choices. The main menu had a variety of American and Germanic influences. I really enjoyed the Veal Schnitzel and would recommend it however, I wish was there was a little less breading. The Cheese fondue was a fun appetizer. The service was on-point.

All meals were good except the beef kabob. Very dry. My friend, who is a vegetarian, was with us and your menu only offers two vegetarian meals. She asked the waiter for a suggestion. He said "I don't know, what do you like?" She ordered the pasta vodka, then about 1 minute later tracked down the waiter to change her order to the 24 carrot veggies. He was VERY annoyed and even said "I don't know if we can change it now". Overall, he provided pretty good service, but this was rude. A few minutes later he came back and said he changed it and said "but don't change it again"... he kind of acted like he was joking, but too late, you were already rude before.

We met a local guy Sven in the hottub and he recommended we try Blue Plate. The owner is from Austria and the food was excellent. We loved the fondue - a classic European style cheese fondue. The place was popular. Good energy in the place. The owner Ellie came around and greeted guests.

Came in the summer and had a great experience but came back for dinner with our kids this winter and was really disappointed. Our server was surly to say the least. When asked what was popular on tapas menu he replied that people are “stupid” and we “shouldn’t rely on what’s popular” 😳. Dinner was fine but not worth the service for

We had a group of 9, 5 of them were teens. The restaurant was very accommodating in placing our group. Our waitress was very nice and didn’t seem put off by the fact that half our group was teens. She explained the specials and made recommendations. We had a gluten free request due to celiacs. When our food came everything was great except our gluten free burger request was served with fries that were not gluten free. This contaminated the plate and it had to be sent back. Our waitress was very apologetic about the misunderstanding but offered no additional side that was gluten free. All the other food that came out was delicious and everyone seemed pleased with their choices. We also ate lunch there one day and I’d say the lunch was even better then the dinner. I’d go back.

Food is always good at Blue Plate, this was our 4th visit. My husband ordered the seafood soup for his entree. I questioned the waiter when it was ordered to ensure it had no beef or pork products, since hubby doesn’t eat beef/pork. Waiter looked at me like i was an idiot and said ‘it’s seafood’. When the soup arrived if contained bacon bits. We asked for a swap, and the waiter offered the French Onion soup. I said ‘doesn’t it have a beef broth as a base?’, ‘Oh yeah’, replied the waiter. Finally we settled on a Greek salad, which was one of the best ever, said hubby. The wait staff needs to know the ingredients for each dish.
