Blue Plate Ratings and Reviews
First, food was a 4+. Meatloaf was phenomenal ; Zucchini noodles were unique and delicious (despite the $9 up charge to add 3 small shrimps). Hostess was fun and pleasant; server was a problem.
The server was aggressive, short, and arrogant. My husband requested a specific drink, but the server tried to talk him into something similar. That was annoying, but okay. The server said that he ended up making it himself when the bartender wasn't sure what it was (bourbon collins?).
Once dinner was served, the server hovered like a droid. It was very obvious (there was only one other table full in our part of the restaurant). It was like he was bored, but literally just stood over my shoulder a couple of times.
I ordered a beer, had about 1/8 of the glass left and ordered another. He quickly brought another bottle by and actually asked me to please finish what I had in the first glass (???). So, I chugged what was left over as he set my 2nd beer down. Really??? LOL
We ordered dessert, and he offered "a-la-mode" on what ended up being a small, but delicious chocolate cake. When my partner declined, he looked put out. We didn't feel bad, after the shrimp upgrade, however.
He then brought the check before he even brought the cake, stating 'no hurry, but whenever you are ready'--I would expect a violation of Restaurant 101, but it prevented me from ordering another drink.
Overall, the food was good and I think we just got stuck with a bad server who made us feel very uncomfortable. The whole approach that he took to service will make us not desiring to return again. So, 4 stars for food, -1 star for service.
The food was Ok. The wait staff was not. Poor attention to detail, slow to respond, and a lack of enthusiasm would generally describe the service received. The restaurant was not busy so lack of time is no excuse. I would say it was lack of knowledge (how to be a good waiter) or lack of desire (didn’t care).
This German inspired restaurant in Avon near the Westin resort was just the ticket for a last minute reservation after a busy day of skiing Beaver Creek. Interesting and eclectic menu with something for most tastes including kids. The deconstructed apple strudel was the best dessert we had all week. Definitely would return.
Great service. Four people, only one happy with meal (Sole fish). Two zucchini curry dishes, neither of us happy. No flavor and mostly peas. Clam chowder just okay lacking in clam flavor, mostly cream and butter. Calamari was enjoyed. Liked them better when they were in their smaller space.
Food was good. Service was poor, not just inattentive but rude. We have been coming to BC for four years in a row and this restaurant has always been a reasonably good experience. We have always come back. This was a poor experience. We have another reservation scheduled here for this trip and may cancel it.
We come to BC every year the week before Xmas and make a point to visit Blue Plate. The food is always great and the atmosphere is very relaxed. We like their menu, which is not fancy but still creative. We dined there this Saturday and were very pleased with both the food and the service.
Some like it hot. We were initially served fresh baked rolls, they were to hot to handle. I had to wait for it to cool down before i could eat it. My veal, prepared properly, was again to got to eat when it was served. A very nice meal. The service was mediocre, I had to request refills.
Great and attentive service. Meal was very good except the clam chowder has a bit of sand in it. Calamari was outstanding. Room ambiance could have been better. We all didn't like the paintings with price tags hanging on the wall. Would go back again and maybe sit in the other room or the bar.
This was a revisit to the Avon area and we discovered this place last year and had fond memories. The place didn't disappoint the second visit. We had the mussels and they were very good and couldn't not get the Schnitzel . I had the veal and hubby had the pork and it was as buttery and lemony as I remember. A must try if you're in the area. Our waiter Josh was great too!
We used to frequent this restaurant and really enjoyed it, but the menu has changed and the food has become overly complicated. It's a great spot to eat outside and the staff is great, but our meals were not nearly as good as they have been in the past. The menu does seem to change frequently so maybe the next change will be better.
We dined with a group of friends ranging in age from 5 to 50. Everyone was happy with their food. Good service and interesting tasty food options. One of our "go to" places when visiting the valley. Nice outdoor bar and patio as well. One of only a few reasonably priced high quality dining options in the Vail area.
Very disappointing. It was our first night in the area and wanted something special. We waited 20-30 minutes for a drink. The wine was less than satisfactory. 30 minutes after we ordered the food the waiter came back and said he had lost the order. Once it finally came my food tasted like a healthy choice TV dinner, not great. My friend's dinner was prepared incorrectly. The owner comp'd us a dessert and took some of the wine off the bill, but it wasn't enough. I would never go back.
I dined here tonight with my family. First, it took over an hour to get our food. Second, my step daughter is a vegetarian which is one of the reasons we chose this place. They advertise that they have vegetarian options. In fact, they only have one dish. The waitress encouraged her to try it and said just let me know if you don't like it. She did not like it. The plate was sent back. However, we were charged 50% of the plate. We thought that was strange since that is not the case at most restaurants. After a debate they removed the entire charge from the bill. Third, dessert was ordered to go and the waitress asked if I'd like the ice cream as well. I said sure just on the side. I did not realize that I was ordering ice cream in addition the cake. When I received the bill there was a $3 charge for ice cream. I mentioned to the waitress that I did not realize there was an additional charge and that I no longer wanted the ice cream. She then informed me that I would ha e to accept the ice cream and pay the charge for it. This was terrible service. After another debate they removed the charge from the bill. There were a total of 6 of us which included 2 children. Our bill was over $250. The food just was not worth it and the service again was terrible. My recommendation is to skip this place and to spend your time and money elsewhere.
When we arrived there were only 3 other tables seated - approximately 10 open. The service was extremely slow although all staff were very friendly. I ordered the burger which looked like a Wendy's party and may have been frozen as the meat kept separating In layers. The French fries were amazing. One of the other diners had a carder salad, which lacked flavor and was unimpressive. My husband enjoyed the meatloaf but it looked awful. With many other options in the Avon/Edwards area, we probably will not be going back.
