We celebrated my birthday at Chimney Park a couple days ago. I had requested a quiet table and they gave us a table tucked into a nook that was perfect. The service was excellent from start to finish. Our food was also excellent. I started with the lump crab cakes and they were primarily lump crab meat with practically no filler--perfect! My husband had the mixed greens salad which he said was great. I had the angus beef ribeye filet and requested it medium. It was perfectly grilled and the accompanying potatoes, mushrooms and asparagus were just wonderful. My husband had the halibut and indicated it was also perfect. Our waiter gave us a chocolate treat at the end of the meal, with Happy Birthday on the plate, in chocolate. It was a perfect dinner and we will definitely return!

The octopus appetizer is superb. Menu changes nightly and always has specials. Our main special tonight was baramundi which was outstanding. Emily, our server, is extremely knowledgeable and delivered in a deep sexy almost raspy voice. A wonderful 3 hour experience.

My favorite restaurant EVER. The cuisine and Chef's choice 5 course (especially with the wine pairing) is not just a meal, it is an experience to be appreciated. It is the one place that I look forward to dishes I could not cook at home. The wait staff and presentation make the experience even more appealing and complete. Very personal service and very knowledgeable staff.
Also, for a person with a food-pervasive, yet odd , allergy, the chef always serves me something on par with those who do not have restrictions, which is very much appreciated.

Any issue I had food wise was due to personal preferences. With that being said the food was good but I felt the prices were high when compared to other restaurants I have been to, comparing apples to apples. The staff was VERY friendly and attentive. The small are contributed to a high noise volume. It also could have been due to a larger group sitting next to us. When it was all said and done I would recommend Chimney Park to a friend with the cautions that I have listed. The only other issue was the reservation process. I had planned the evening as a surprise for my wife. Upon completion of the reservation Open table automatically attached it to my calendar which my wife has access to. I could have deleted it but wanted the confirmation to show if something went wrong.

This was the second time that I have dined at this restaurant and it was an impeccable evening. My father was in town visiting and we both wanted to return to Chimney Park for a second taste. The care and attention to detail to both the meal and service was superb. Our waiter/ bartender Christopher answered any questions and his attention made sure our dining experience was nothing short of excellent. He also made us two variations of our favorite cocktail, a manhattan, and we can't wait to have them again. Bryan was an excellent and perceptive sommelier with a clear understanding of the complexity of flavors in the lamb saddle dish I ordered and paired it perfectly. He knew what was best and made sure we were absolutely satisfied. Chimney Park will always be my special occasions restaurant.

We enjoyed our dinner at Chimney Park. The service was excellent, and it was nice to be able to talk to one another at the table without shouting! The food was enjoyable, but I must admit that we did not feel it lived up to the reputation we have heard. I was hoping for more creativity and flavor. Our server recommended the carrot cake as the best he had eaten. It was certainly tasty, but not special. So, we had a nice, pleasant dinner, but we probably will not drive 30 minutes again to return there from Fort Collins.

Chimney Park is one of the few restaurants in the region that can accommodate my health and dietary needs easily, pleasantly and deliciously. Not only that, they took note the first time and I've never had to explain myself again. I am forever loyal. Their service, food and atmosphere is top notch. Their Naturally Raised Bison New York Strip is amazing.

The 5-course tasting menu was amazing! Three of us got different food for each course. And we all loved it so much. Chef would tailor your taste. The portion was really good as well. You wouldn't feel hungry like when you eat in some other fancy restaurants after a couple course, then still need to eat free bread to fill yourself up...

By far the top 3 restaurants I’ve eaten at. The attention to detail is on another level. Each course has a different plate that accents the food. The food itself is complex and each bite is an experience. The presentation of the food is thoughtful and further adds to the experience. The newly renovated building is inviting, cozy, and somehow makes the food better. The service is precise, not pretentious, knowledgeable, and helpful. Our server made time to chat with us and we will definitely be requesting her when we return. I would eat at Chimney Park every night if my wallet would allow it and when special occasions arise it’s no question where I will be spending them, Chimney Park. It’s better than any 5 star restaurant in Denver, and comparable to the 5 star restaurant I’ve eaten at in San Fransisco and Los Angeles. Call and ask who the owner/chef trained under and you will understand why I say it’s better or as good as the top restaurants in the US. Lastly, my favorite part is the desserts. Don’t take my word for it, go and try one or all, and I’m sure you will agree.

We had the absolutely best meal that all five of us have ever had in our lives, including places across the world. The price is not cheap, and the food is worth every penny. Every plate was a work of art and tasted exquisite. People pay top dollar for a good massage or a rock concert. Add Chimney Park Bistro to your list of things worth paying for. Go with a group of 4-5 for an unforgettable dining experience, order the tasting menu, and witness unmatched culinary skill. BRAVO!

My friend and I celebrated our birthdays at Chimney Park. The food is superb, and i think everyone knows that already. The waitstaff was efficient, pleasant, knowledgeable. They checked on us often enough without being intrusive and we never felt rushed. Perhaps best of all it is quiet enough in there to allow diners to carry on conversations without having to raise their voices. I highly recommend Chimney Park

A true gem in northern Colorado. From the warm ambiance that greets you when you walk in to the spot on professional service from the entire staff. This Chef and his staff are true culinary artists, start with the charred Spanish octopus a truly unique dish.

The entrees are a wonderland that will make you want to try each, our favorite is the filet of Ribeye an you could never go wrong with the fresh fish of the day. Before you leave sample the Colorado apple french toast, a delicious take on bread pudding that won’t disappoint.

Finally we have to compliment the fantastic bar staff, their selection and creativity in drinks is outstanding.

This is my third visit. Have not been disappointed. It is the best restaurant for haute cuisine in Northern Colorafo, hands down. The food and service are excellent, and the wine list is very respectable. It is a little pricy by Colorado standards, but a bargain compared to comparable restaurants in Manhattan, LA, or San Francisco. Well worth it.
