    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!

    Great place to have an intimate dinner! Octopus appetizer was tender and tasty, Ribeye melted in our mouth, Duck was luscious. The sommelier was extremely helpful in chosing a wine to fit a wine that complimented both meals. Loved loved our dinner!!!

    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.

    The entire staff was very friendly - lots of smiles and cheerfulness which was great. The food was fantastic - every of the 5 courses was excellent and the wine pairing was great too! We particularly loved the grilled Spanish octopus! The tasty food combined with the friendly service gave us a great evening.

    Generally, the food is fine, but pricey for the overall experience. Too much salt in the steak dish, too much acid in the salad dressing. Service is excellent, but ambiance is only fair.

    This is our special occasion destination and typically you can expect amazing food which makes the bill easier to swallow. Overall, the food was great except for the ribeye entrees. The steaks lacked flavor and were tough. Both steaks were over-cooked which was corrected but did not make up for the sub-prime cut of meat.

    Chimney Park is the best restaurant in Northern CO and easily ranks in the top 10 in the state of CO. Food was excellent! Wine pairings with the 5 course chef’s tasting menu were superb and the sommelier is very knowledgeable. Wait staff were very attentive, knew the menu well, but never felt overbearing. As usual….. a memorable dining experience!!

    First time here. We will definitely be back. The staff is very welcoming and attentive, it made us feel special. The timing of everything arriving at our table from our initial cocktail to our espresso and desert was well planned where we didn’t feel rushed, nor did we feel ignored. The food was top notch. Thank you to the staff for making my birthday a memorable one!

    While a prior meal from this restaurant was outstanding, this evening was simply “mid.” Mostly likely because the servers were unwelcoming, non-communicative, and, well, just there. A fine dining experience should be just that - an experience - and feel like you are being served the best food by the best servers. We were asked for our order and items were placed in front of us, nothing more. The check was placed on the table and nothing more was said as we exited. Nothing. Pity. It has such potential.
