As always, Chimney Park was awesome. Easily the best restaurant in Northern Colorado, and if there's a better one anywhere within 500 miles, we haven't found it. Fois gras was to die for, as was barramundi, with superb fresh green beet salad and lobster bisque. Service with a smile, great knowledge of the menu and wine list, and excellent, reasonably priced wines to complement the grand meal.

The best meal we have had in many, many months. Each member of our party of 4 enjoyed the chef's choice, 5 course tasting - paired with wines. The food was superb, as usual, and we were even served two courses that were not on the menu. The wines were top drawer and very unusual. We were served a total of 24 different wines for the party!

Fantastic place. When getting the tasting menu for more than one person they give you different dishes so the table enjoys various things.

This was our second time eating at Chimney Park. I had the bison tartar and my wife had the roasted beet salad as appetizers. We both had the seared scallops as our main entree. It all was excellent. We will return to Chimney Park for special occasions. The food is always great, the wine list is the best we have found in Northern Colorado (albeit very pricey)and the service is very good.

Fantastic restaurant. Absolutely loved everything about our visit. I only wished we would have taken notes to know what we were eating as the tasting menu is up to the chef. I wonder if there is a way to get a print out or something that summarizes the visit if you do the tasting menu to keep track of all the dishes you eat. It was absolutely amazing. Fantastic visit and a great way to experience a number of different food options.

We love Chimney Park and I especially love the off-menu item... the Cap Steak. We celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary here and tried the 5- course tasting menu... gotta say, Chef Jason and the wait staff DID NOT DISAPPOINT!! We had what I considered to be a take on chips and salsa with some hamachi and rice paper; we loved the bison tartare, and we were treated to a main course of a filet (cooked perfectly) and the Ribeye Cap steak which was what I would consider Blue, with a delicious maple glaze. without realizing it, Chef Jason transported us back to Bora Bora with the great flavors, textures, and mixture of proteins including fish, bison, beef, crab, and a great selection of vegetables, too. If you're on the fence about whether to try Chimney Park, do yourself a favor and go. the ambiance is perfect for quiet conversation and simply relaxing after battling the day. whether you let them piece together a 5-course meal (which included FULL PORTIONS!!) or put it together yourself, order as much stuff off the menu as you can. We've never had a dish we didn't finish there... it's so freakin' good!!

Tried to reserve a Table on Saturday
nothing was available- we went anyway at 4:00 found out it was closed for private function- not mentioned on web site. Wasted an hour driving. Next day tried to reserve at 5:00 only to find no reservations available between 4:30 and 7:30 so we reserved a table for 4:00- we never eat that early, only to find there were tables available the whole time. Then, after half of the very good shrimp appetizer a fire hot pepper (?seed) closed the back of my throat. We told our waitress to let the kitchen know. We had so looked forward to dinner at Chimney Park that weekend instead is was a very bad experience.

We enjoyed a wonderful date night at Chimney Park! Our server was fantastic, well timed, and made the experience truly enjoyable.
The daily preparation of the Bison NY Strip came with potato croquettes and were by far the best bite of the evening. The scallops were also delicious.

Food was extarordinary but the foie Gras was a little burned/overcooked.
Service was standard with no extra miles.. Actually messed up our orders.
Ambience was disappointing. A group of people were chatting so loud and used of vulgar language.
Overall 3 stars. Mostly are for food. Thanks for reading.

The best fine dining experience in Northern Colorado hands down. Did the chef's tasting and wine pairing menu this time which was very well done. Plenty of personal attention, and excellent wine selection up to the Tokai and 30 year Tawny with dessert.

We had a lovely birthday celebration for my husband at Chimney Park. Who knew Windsor had such a great restaurant? It was worth the hour plus drive from Boulder. Only wish they'd given him a small birthday treat to top off the tasty dinner.
