    Outstanding food, attentive service, great ambience. All-in-all great dining experience although a little pricey. The one thing that sort of bothered me was the wait staff interrupted or conversation on a number of occasions instead of waiting a moment.

    Chimney park is the best restaurant within an hour of Fort Collins. The chef clearly loves and is proud of his work, and he should be. The staff is so polite and helpful, and they know their food and wine extremely well. I recently visited two Michelin-rated restaurants that could learn a lot about fine dining from chef Jason Shaeffer.

    Meal was good but not great. Service was slower than it should have been for both our entrees and desserts. Room temperature was warm and stuffy. All in all, an experience that was not consistent with its reputation and promise—not good value.

The entire experience was extraordinary and we all had a wonderful time. Chimney Park is a great place to go for a special celebration. We can't wait for our next visit!

    Our first time to eat here, went for wife’s birthday with friends. We did the 5 course meal and everyone was extremely satisfied. Included the wine tasting with mine, was given great input on each wine and how it paired with each course the gentleman going over the details was energetic and passionate and made it that much more fun and interesting. Great experience highly recommended.

    The entrée was not fit to serve. The dessert was gross., the Soup was excellent. I ordered a filet mignon, medium rare---what I got was a steak 1 inch thick, served medium on a very hot plate that had been sitting under a heat lamp way too long. I did not get a the normal 2 inch thick cut of Filet- medium rare. and for this I paid $135. The steak was supported by some pretty good vegetables ---though under cooked, But the Filet had this "supposed sauce" over it ???? why??? it ruined the entrée completely I won't again. The dessert was 1/2 of a fig, 2 teeny pieces of Camembert cheese inside of an uncuttable biscuit, with a melting golf ball size portion of some ice cream sitting on graham cracker crumbs. again not pleasant. The watermelon gazpacho soup was fantastic. really professionally done. The appetizer was poorly done---the biscuit was way overdone so that when I sawed into bit size pieces it flew all over the place. The balsamic sauce was sparse on the plate. The tomatoes were very tasty. I told the sous chef on duty---and he was not impressed. I told the server that the meat was not to my liking to the point I had to ask for salt and pepper to be brought to the table to get a semblance of flavor out of the meat---a steak must stand on its own merits----this one failed. Jason would have been very disappointed at presenting this sort of meal. I have been going to Chimney Park since it opened-----

    For the first time (after some 4 visits) we were disappointed with something, ( a lemon dessert) which we commented upon to our server: No action taken, however to make it right, or to 'make good' on the tab. Apps and entrees fabulous as usual.

    That’s a treat to have fine dining like this in our little town of Windsor. The chef took the time to personally come out and treat us to our first bites and everything about our meal was fantastic. It’s a must-have a place for dessert! Friendly service at the bar, our afternoon was made perfect for happy hour and our date night.

    The food was truly exceptional! Loved every bite. I didn't love the look of the interior and the paintings looked like they had been picked out of a pier one, but it didn't matter once I started eating. The service was wonderful even though they were short staffed and the bartender surprised me with some killer mocktails if that's up your alley!

    Chimney Park is the best restaurant in Northern Colorado. So this review is a little nit picking, and intended for the kitchen as a constructive review. Overall, dinner was a great experience. However, three areas could be improved. First, we were rushed to order our meal when we sat down, and the first courses were also rushed (for example, plates were cleared before we were finished and and the next wine pairing was set before we had the chance to drink the previous one). Second, the pork belly and foie gras were slightly over-cooked. The pork belly was saved by the sauce, but the foie gras was a little granular as opposed to the buttery heaven that it should be. And third, the pavlova, a meringue-like dessert, was hard and crispy instead of soft and chewy. Everything tasted great, but just a little short of expectations. The atmosphere, was wonderful and we will definitely repeat.
