OMG. We plan on coming back on as many Fridays as we can. Service was excellent, happy hour was generous, and the space is gorgeous. It's like a museum! The food was good, and definitely fairly priced.

My family planned a surprise birthday lunch for me last weekend. Not only was the table set beautifully, but he service was awesome and the food was delicious! I'm still craving the flatbread with goat cheese, arugula & cherry tomatoes we had as a starter. So good! The bison queso was great as well. All the brunch items at the table were a hit. My husband had the pork belly Rueben and I had the asparagus salad which we both enjoyed. It was a great space for our larger party. We will definitely be back.

The food was good but the service was poor AND rude. We never spoke about it at the table but everyone commented on it afterwards. The ambience is probably better with light and no snow. The room feels cold and cafeteria-like.

We had a valentine day meal there. The table was nicely set with flowers and our name. Service was very attentive. We only had a choice of three appetizers three entree' and two dessert for $35 each plus drinks. They charged $16.00 each for Martinis and they had no olives. The food was fine but nothing spectacular. For the Valentine Day Menu two drinks and two glasses of wine we shelled out $139.00 with tip(20%+). A little pricey for the venue.
The Ambiance was loud and noisy with a moderate crowd. Fossil Trace has to solve the sound attenuation problem in that restaurant. When golfers are in there with a couple of beers it is way to noisy. Overall a good place to go locally at the right time of the evening to avoid the noise.

They didn't mention it was in a golf club. We were the only 2 eating. Very limited menu(only 4 options for breakfast). Very bad signage to get there. Service was good. Food was good except my wife ordered a veggie burrito and it came with meat.

We went to this restaurant because it wasn't too far from Red Rock Amphitheater and we were going to a concert that night. I would highly recommend for friendliness of staff (hello Doug!), great food and a view that can't be beat.

Waited 15 minutes bites to be seated in an empty restaurant despite having a reservation. Male waitperson seemed overly bothered that we needed a sun shade which was requested in a hot patio, but not provided.

Fellow seemed more concerned about the umbrella than his clients.

I’m sure this place will tank like the last one did, unless the golfers bring in enough bar business.

Food was decent for a golf course clubhouse. My issues were the tea was old and rancid and the dish that I wanted was not available. Views of mountains were fantastic.

We went for Fathers Day, located in the Fossil Trace Golf Clubhouse. The dinning room is a converted events venue, so very no frills. We had green chili biscuts and gravy, Mac and cheese, eggs benedict and a breakfast burrito. All the food was excellent and the service came with a smile. It’s a little hectic, because it’s a clubhouse and there are a lot of things going on. The deck has a great view, but it was raining and we didn’t get to enjoy it,

If it weren’t for high open table ratings we would have never ventured here. Did not know it was a golf club restaurant. Service was outstanding, food quality very good and the view on the patio priceless. Lucky pick, but highly recommend it.

My husband, son, and stepdaughter ordered the Reuben, chicken fingers (from the kids menu) and the FT Burger, respectively. I ordered the pan seared chicken. They loved their food, I even tried my son’s food as he’s two and wouldn’t finish all of it anyway and they were the best chicken fingers I had ever had, he agreed! My chicken, however, was not great. The portion was TINY, even though my meal cost $4.00 more than everyone else’s. The chicken was barely seared, leaving the skin soggy and not crispy at all. It was dry, the only thing making it even slightly moist was the sauce the crispy gnocchi’s were drowned in. Also, the gnocchis that were supposed to be crispy were in so much sauce that they were no longer crispy, if they ever had been. The beans were also soaking up too much sauce which made them taste extremely vinegar-y. I asked the waitress to take it back and make me another meal instead, so I tried the Korean Cheesesteak sandwich... MUCH better!! The noise level got a little loud but it was because we were at the end of a golf game so a bunch of golfers came in to eat, the person seating us had warned us of this before we even sat, and he had us sit in a different area so it would be quieter. The ambiance is great, they have interesting facts about fossils found on the property, and dinosaur decorations everywhere but it’s not tacky at all. The waitress was more than accommodating when I didn’t like my first meal, another person (I’m assuming the manager) even came over to apologize and ask me what else I wanted. Everyone is really friendly, even the guests, who were engaging my son and telling us how cute he is, etc. The only complaint I might have besides the chicken, is the menu is EXTREMELY limited. They have a lot of really yummy sounding sandwiches, but only like three things for dinner. I was really hoping for a nice steak as this was a special occasion, but what we all got in the end we were happy with. I’d go here again.

We had friends from out of town and wanted them to see the wonderful view from the restaurant. We ate on the patio and the sunset was gorgeous - the food was very good and everyone enjoyed their meal. Our server was gracious and funny. We are so pleased that this restaurant has turned around with new people -- it is really great!

Would definitely return for a brunch or to try a different type of meal as well. A little bit of confusion who our server was, was seated for about 5 minutes before we were asked if we had been helped. Also, they handed out flowers to the moms as we came in for brunch on Mother's Day, but apparently they ran out since we weren't offered one. I certainly didn't need one but some folks would be put off by that. Food was great.

The staff here was very helpful and accommodating to my large group of people. That being said we caught them at a time when they were transitioning menus and they didn’t have a dinner menu, which was unfortunate. The food was cooked well, but under seasoned. I will need to go back with a smaller party and hopefully catch them on a good day.

Easter Brunch was just great, all enjoyed it, including the two year old. Of all the myriad choices we sampled, the five of us only found one dish we didin't think was excellent, pretty good for a holiday buffet, and the price was lower than others I'd checked with. Despite being super busy, the staff were all extremely courteous and efficient, and the view was lovely, as promised.

The dinner and service were excellent at fair prices. The view was amazing of Table Mountain and Golden. It was quiet with only a few tables occupied, which is too bad considering how much we liked it. It is hard to find but follow signs for Fossil Trace Golf Course and that will take you there. I'm guessing it was quiet due to that it isn't yet well known.

Really good food--creative, flavorful and a good value (we went during Denver Restaurant Week). The only downside was the ambiance. The lights in the dining room were very bright--not dimmed in the least-- and the music was all 80s all night. Mony mony, Der Komissar, Down Under, etc.--I'm not kidding. While amusing, it was in complete contrast to the image the chef is portraying with the wonderful food.
