Food was great. Teens loved fondeaux and frog leg appetizers. Veggie curry superb. Service great and friendly with smiles as we walk in and leave. Great ambience and a must for dinner in Avon area.

Food is always good but my stomach really rejected it the next day for some reason. I had the french onion soup (has a veal broth base-very thick) and Caesar salad and they were tasty. The bread and butter are fabulous. Waiter was pretty good and the woman who welcomes you is always very friendly (a little more distracted than usual) but I would go back.

Second time eating at Blue Plate. Each time left with the same impression. Some items on the menu are good, some are average. Nothing we ate blew us away but nothing was inedible. There are many places to go between Vail and Beaver Creak area for a significantly better culinary experience. With that said - got in with a last minute reservation during ski season and the bill was reasonable.

This was our first time here and we had some drinks and a lot of the tapas. We highly recommend the beef tips! It melted in our mouths that we ordered more ! Such a great evening after all the avalanche drama. :) We will return next time we come back to Avon!

Great restaurant, we have been there a few times. My only complaint is that even with a reservation, you check in and then wait in a cramp reception area for up to 15 minutes to get a table. They don't seem to have enough staff to greet customers and take telephone calls etc.

Always good. We've had most items on the tapas menu, with repeats of brussel sprouts (the appetizer version), beet spread (delicious) and calamari. In addition, the meat loaf is exceptional and generous. Probably been here five times, and we're part-timers. Servers are friendly and responsive. Highly recommend.

We visit Blue Plate every time we are in the Beaver Creek area. The service and food are always fantastic. I especially enjoyed the beet appetizer, clam chowder and apfel strudel during my last visit. My friends ordered the fish and chips and the pork schnitzel and raved about both dishes! They always love the German (Austrian) Pils beer too! We can't wait to go back!

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.
