Very good experience. Service and knowledge of excellent product was spot on. Patio dining area was very pleasant. Pre-meal mole sampling/pairing discussion is a super nice touch and helps ensure your meal does not suck.
Probably my best meal in Santa Fe. Beverage program is good as well.

Overall, the food was good. Service was great, albeit a bit more stuffy than I would prefer. The wine was spectacular.

I have really gone back and forth about this restaurant in my head since we finished our meal several days ago. The food was good. For the price point, I may have expected too much. The portions were smaller than anticipated and nothing blew me away. Again, good food. I just have a hard time reconciling good food for the price point.

Regardless, it was an experience. I did enjoy it, just not as much as I had hoped.

Tasting menu was superb. We chose to do wine pairings. Was pricey but worth it for our splurge. Somalia’s was well versed and knowledgeable in experience each choice. Missed having my favorite dessert - creme brulee but the chocolate pot du creme is a new second favorite. Can’t wait to return Next year.🤩Carol Ellis, San Antonio, Texas

Nice dinner would have liked to eat here without a 5 course Menu and just ordered off a regular menu so it got a bit pricey. Portions are very small.

Phenomenal!
Service was outstanding! At our request, the Maitre D’ led us through a relaxed and fun evening of divine food and wine pairings. After dinner we enjoyed speaking with the chef. We were able to share our compliments with him, though we couldn’t honestly give him and his sous enough praise for such a splendid meal. Dining experiences as wonderful and memorable as Soupçon are super rare.
Oh, I should mention how damn cozy this place is. It’s tiny, it’s perfect and the photos that adorn the walls act as stunning windows onto the mountain areas that lured us there in the first place. Nicely done all, 5.5 out of 5 stars!

My husband and I came down from northern Colorado for the weekend with our newborn son. We were welcomed with open arms and blown AWAY with the courses of food we had. The chef came around and served food and chatted with us and the staff was extremely friendly.

This was the best meal I have had since moving to Colorado 7 years ago from New York City. The food. atmosphere, service, food preparation, presentation and host interaction through the meal were OUTSTANDING. Wonderful wine selection as well as nicely prepared cocktails. I will recommend this restaurant to all my friends. This dining experience will make my visits to Crested Butte even more exciting in the future.

Fantastic meal. Great service. The food was excellent, particularly the scallops and the winter vegetable plate. The wine steward, Dan, did a great job matching our meal choices to selections from the extensive wine list. Chef was generous with his time visiting our table. We will always make Soupçon a part of any visit near Crested Butte.

We've been dining at Soupcon since my children were little when they'd have a little bit to eat and then quietly fall asleep on the bench. They're now 29 and 25 and it's been a favorite spot for holidays, birthdays and other special occasions. It is my husbands favorite restaurant in Colorado.
Unfortunately, this last visit was not one of the best. The menu choices were good, the food was good, the service was good ... but, all in all, it was just "good" - not great as in years past. i should have requested a table not at the front door. Our candle wouldn't stay lit and it seemed an issue to get another one. They charged us for a couple of drinks that weren't ours, charged us for my husbands birthday dessert - that they said they would comp (they fixed the bill, but only after we called it to their attention. There was just nothing special. Nor quite the attention to detail that we've enjoyed in the past. I hope it was just an off night and that Soupcon will continue to provide excellent cuisine, service and special experiences in the future. We will be back.

We had a very good meal at Soupcon. Unfortunately, it was marred by a party of six who were loud, crass, and vulgar. It seemed that most patrons in the restaurant were not happy with them as they got louder, crasser, and more vulgar as the meal went on and much wine was imbibed by them. At no point did the anyone (waitstaff, management, chef) make any effort to reign them in.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. The food in Crested Butte is already awesome. Soupcon is clearly at the top. Intimate atmosphere, surrounded by interesting photos around CB. And, that is just the start. The food is well-thought out and then masterfully delivered. Every nite was delicious. Great wines. Great wait staff. A delightful evening from start to finish.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Soupcon. The atmosphere was amazing as you enter the small lit "cabin" and with snow piled up outside and falling at the time it was special. We were greeted immediately and from start to finish our service was impeccable. It was a long meal which we really enjoyed. We were seated at 8:30 and I would say we left out around 11'ish. Some finished and left earlier but we were savoring the evening and every bite and glass of wine! Nobody was rushing the process and we had plenty of time to enjoy the courses and the special evening. It is a small place but we were very comfortable, never felt cramped and felt we could have a quiet and private conversation.
The food quality and preparation were as good as I have had anywhere. Tried a few of the starter courses to share, the Elk entree was outstanding and we sampled a few of the desserts as well. Yes you pay for this meal but we felt it was worth every penny. That moment, that beautiful town and a special place like Soupcon are something we didn't want to miss.

Complete anomaly in CB, not in a positive way. General mgr was aggressively rude and inhospitable. Food was prepared well but hit a high price point, which I knew when I made our reservation. My expectation for an exceptional dining experience, which would have been fitting for that price point, was a big miss. Would not recommend.
