Love this place! Expensive but worth it. A special plus is that they are very attentive to your needs. Our daughter is on a plant-based diet and the Chef prepared a special entrée just for her!!

The food was amazing. Highly recommend the Chef's tasting menu with wine pairing. One of the best aspects of our dining experience was the server, he was perfect: attentive but discrete, extraordinary knowledge of wine, eager to dive into details and explain his pairing choices and details of the food preparation, and overall he was very pleasant. Unfortunately, I don't remember his name! I would love to dine at Chimney Park more often, I just wish it was a bit more affordable.

The service at this restaurant was outstanding, and the food was superb, I had the Halibut and it was the best Halibut I have ever had, it was moist with great flavor and cooked perfectly, and the same was true for my wife's steak.

This restaurant was spotless, and the cleanest restrooms we have ever been in with restaurants we have
visited.

Our server was excellent, and did an outstanding job, and we have already recommended this restaurant
to several of our friends,

Thank you for a wonderful experience,

Sincerely,
Bob & Patty

Excellent experience as is most often the case. The service was attentive and the food was outstanding. The food had depth of flavor and great ingredient combinations, which is what makes this restaurant stand out. It was hard to choose from the menu offerings but settled on octopus and Moroccan shrimp for appetizers and sea scallops for an entry which were perfectly prepared. It's a bit expensive but worth it for a special occasion.

It was a celebration on my 60th birthday and it was lovely! I just moved to Windsor 3 days ago and was pleasantly surprised by the delicious food and service. Could rival any Boston restaurant for sure. I will be a regular customer - in fact, have a table reserved for July 6th!! Can’t wait, yum

We came here for my birthday and got the Chef’s tasting menu. It was wonderful and I recommend it thoroughly. It’s a quiet atmosphere which is nice, but took a little getting used to (not a lot of fine dining restaurants around that have that reserved atmosphere). But not bad- just took a little getting used to.

Loved it and would recommend it to anyone!

Everything is excellent. What would make the experience a solid 5 is to have more vegetarian dishes on the menu, especially entree. The waiter said the chef would prepare any combination I wanted, but I'd like to see something like risotto or eggplant parmesan.

We recently moved from the Bay Area to Fort Collins and have found Chimney Park to be as good or better than any restaurants in San Francisco and the East Bay, including Chez Panisse. The food is exceptional, and the service is attentive, warm, and informed. We've eaten there twice already—once for the tasting menu (which was amazing)—and we'll be going back often.

Go there 3to4x per year. Menu is not huge but dishes well thought out. Issue is that the menu changes very little so that the dishes become boring. Quality of food is excellent, preparation very good, presentation good. Noise level is very high especially when the server who does tasting menu (wears glasses) pontificates on the menu VERY loudly even though he is right in front of the customers. He should be advised to turn the volume down !!! Would I recommend to others? Yes but...... ambience is low, noise level huge! Food great! Service very good but avoid sitting near the tasting menu server. Will we come again? Probably but only once a year since menu doesnt often change and is so very predictable.

They work hard if you get their "Tasters Menu" to bring unique courses. They always deliver more than expected.
