This is a pretty bad place. Food is pretty bad, both in quality and quantify. Completely over priced. I could get better food in a local diner. Service is slow. It is in a ski town, they charge you because they can. Total bomb!

Server was a riot, very engaging and attentive. The veal schnitzel was delicious, best I’ve ever had. My wife’s chicken rigatoni was pretty blah. Convenient and fairly priced compared with Hyatt restaurants.

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.

Great food and service. Loved the Greek salad and meatloaf. The popovers for dessert are awesome.

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).

Blue Plate is a good place for casual dining, with a nice assortment of comfort food entrees. The wine and beer selections are good for a low key meal.

Good food. Poor service and manager didn't appear to care.

Blue Plate was perfect. Top notch food and great service -without busting the wallet.

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.

We celebrated our anniversary here. The chef's version of onion soup was very tasty. The linguine Bolognese was excellent. We definitely will return.

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.

ABSOLUTELY the best tasting homemade sour dough rolls you have ever put in your mouth.

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!
