    When I come to town, I always go to Meander... and when I'm there, there is no place I'd rather be. My last visit, 1 week ago, made me consider that Meander is possibly nearing a culinary level approaching Michelin Star status... and I've never said that about any establishment... Why... My friend had the Venison Ravioli and I had the Dutch pancake with a lamb kabob (tzatziki & pickled oinions)... Amazing! I pondered canceling my entrée and reordering my appetizer... luckily I didn't. ...the entrée I ordered was the Duck Confit... phenomenal by itself. It was akin to an Asian fusion Duck... with some heat & sweet... on a type of wild rice. But what made this Confit better than all others, was, they perfectly seared the duck skin. Desert: Tiramisu & the homemade Brownie Chocolate Ice Cream... both fantastic and again executed beyond most ever other restaurant in the country! And I'm not exaggerating... if it add validity to my review... I'm a professional pilot of 32 years, and go everywhere... Meander's is top of my list... finally, I throughly enjoy the service provided by Morgan... such an interesting, fun individual, that elevates my experience there... thank you Chef & crew! (Sorry, no photos this time... it was semi-work related)

    Appetizer was great, my wife’s lasagna was burnt on the bottom and part of the top, my meal being the most expensive only had 4 clams the size of a nickel but overall my fish was good.

    The food and service were perfect. Dishes were unique and interesting. We were seated on the porch which felt like no one had turned the heat on for most of our dinner and then the final course it became extremely warm.

    My husband and I just came in for a quick special ham soup with white beans. Really delicious. May we suggest just a small hunk of bread to go with it. And had to try the Tiramisu. It did not disappoint. Homemade and absolutely melts in your mouth. Thank you.

    We had a really good dinner and enjoyed interacting with our knowledgable waiter and all of the staff. From the front desk host to the three or four servers that brought food to the table, we were impressed with everyone's friendliness and professionalism. We had a great bottle of French wine, three small plates, and shared an exquisite, medium-spicy, and large bowl of Thai curry. Somehow we had room for dessert and the Turkish coffee pudding was a great finale to a luxurious meal. We definitely recommend Meander if you find yourself on the main drag of Pagosa Springs!!

    Our experience at Meander was lovely. The food was varied and delicious, the service was polite and attentive. I wish the restaurant were slightly bigger so we didn't have to sit at the bar, but that was a very minor drawback. It was great for a nice evening out!

    Glad we found Meander. It's different, interesting, and eclectic. We decided to celebrate Valentine's Day the day after and chose this fine restaurant. Though seating was tight, we never felt closed in. The food was excellent. We shared the salad, the main meal and the wine but ordered our own desserts. Cost was what we expected... about $111.00. And it was more than enough for two to eat. However, the leg and thigh in the huge chicken dish seemed somewhat small. The wait staff was beyond excellent. Waitress took the time to write down the name of the wine. Loved it. The entire wine list is amazing. We will return. After all, we haven't tried the Tiramisu yet.

    We really enjoyed the outstanding service & the wine recommendations were amazing. I very much enjoyed my dinner. I ordered the duck. My husband ordered the chicken & rice and while it tasted great...he would much have preferred that a beef meal would have been on the menu. There was venison however, he doesn't care for the taste. The chocolate chip cookie in the cast iron skillet was also very good. Portions are large so if you order appetizers you probably would not have been able to finish the meal. All in all...we will definitely come back to try something else.

    Chef was very accommodating I received a personalized menu with marks letting me know what didn’t have onion and was “safe” for me to order. All 5 dishes were exceptional as was the wine. Our server listened very well and interacted at a very high level. We will be back every time we pass through Pagosa Springs. It was a great experience.
