we celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary last Friday night, Splendido's is one of our favorites in Beaver Creek, with Kathy at the piano bar how could there be a better evening!! The food was good, not as great as we remember, our waiter, Kevin, was very busy with many tables to service. But still overall it is a very magical place

Fui con la familia a cenar tal como hacemos casi todos los años cuando viajamos a Beaver Creek, esta vez no nos fue bien con la comida, tanto los sabores como las presentaciones no fueron de nuestro agrado.
Pedimos 7 entradas y 7 platos fuertes, entre ellos 4 ají tuna y un foie grass que no fueron muy bien acogidos, un New York, 2 Lamb racks, un Veal shop que tampoco estuvieron a tono con nuestras expectativas teniendo en cuenta nuestras excelentes experiencias anteriores.

Splendido’s lives up to it’s name on every level. You really can’t find better food and the service is as good as it gets. A bit pricey but as they say, “when you buy quality, you only cry once”. If I come back to this part of the country again, I will be back.

Splendido at the Chateau has never disappointed and continues to be one of the absolute best all-around dining experiences in the Vail Valley. The Chateau checks all the boxes – wine list, drinks, atmosphere, classy, comfortable, and 5-star food. For those who have never been… think Daniel (NYC) meets the comfortable Colorado mountains. Brian Ackerman continues to knock it out of the park – year after year after year. There is literally nothing on the menu that isn’t phenomenal, from appetizers to dessert…

My wife and I have been regulars at Splendido's for many years. But this is the first time I've written a review. After our multiple visits during this 2019-20 ski season, I am simply compelled to offer these comments. We are fortunate to have enjoyed some of the finest restaurants in the world. Michelin starred, Four Diamond, Relais exquisite, creative and diverse food offerings; and a classic ambiance. General Manager Matt McConnell and Executive Chef/Owner Brian Ackerman and their exquisite team tick ALL the boxes - not just occasionally - but always. Our taste buds are always tickled, the wine list is unmatched anywhere in the Vail Valley (oh my!) and genuine smiles come from each and every person on staff. Elegant, classic and fun music from the grand piano, presented from their select pool of virtuoso talent only enhances the overall experience. John and Fletch mix a mean drink - anything you can think of. Bill knows the wine list backwards and forwards. Pauly, Augie, Anna and the entire serving team are simply irreplaceable and charming. Gus, the valet and artist for the artwork on the menu, is psychic about when to bring your car around. How does he do that? I simply cannot come up with enough superlatives to describe the dining experience that is SPELDIDO's. What they do night in and night out is NOT easy. Well done is not enough. EXTRAORDINARILY well done! Congratulations and keep up the great work. Your efforts create memories that last a lifetime. John R.

We have been here several times and its a shame to feel quality of food has worsened significantly. It is an even bigger shame when a restaurant like this can't even make a decent caesar salad. The caesar salad was basically old wet lettuce with no taste. Red meat was not cooked to order, what they call a pot pie is actually a curry stew with a thick tasteless top crust, and my daughter made a better tasting salmon two nights ago. Wine was ridiculously overpriced to the point it felt like a scam. Definitely won't be coming here again.

Terrific food, as always. Husband tried the rabbit ragout special, which was super tasty. All our dishes were. Everyone was solicitous & we were even offered to tour the kitchen.

Only complaint is the low lighting, which prevented us from seeing the dishes & their components.

Dining at Splendido is always a special treat! With the kitchen in plain view through their picture window, it's like watching a ballet unfold right before your eyes. The food that's produced during this beautiful "dance" is consistently delicious and inventive.

Between the wonderful music provided by Peter on the piano, the stellar service provided by the wait staff and the cuisine created by the kitchen, dining at Splendido is truly a must when visiting Beaver Creek!!!

Great date night if you're in Beaver creek. They have a good wine list (that has some good values on it), the servers are attentive without being annoying, the food is delicious (better than it's been the last 2 years so maybe they have a new chef), and it's absolutely beautiful! The piano in the lobby is also a great touch with music you'll recognize! I had the sole and it was amazing!!! My husband had the salmon; he was it was great but not as good as my sole!

My partner and I dined at Splendido at The Chateau in Beaver Creek, CO on Monday, January 20. Wow were we disappointed!

We spent over $300 on two appetizers, two entrees and three glasses of wine for both of us. The dining experience for the price was on the same level as any other chain family casual restaurant scattered across the country.

We had the octopus and beet citrus salad. The octopus was cooked and seasoned well and after that, I can’t make any other positive comments. The salad was ok, nothing special. We had the NY strip and the bison loin. Again, cooked to order, but not high-quality cuts of meat (again, for the money go to a chain steakhouse as it is the same quality).

Finally, the service was poor. I get it, some restaurants just have poor staff, but are redeemed with excellent food. Or the team is just having a bad night, but again the kitchen saves. I think our experience was the best Splendido has to offer and it was not worth it.

When we return to Beaver Creek, we will not dine at Splendido and of course, we do not recommend this restaurant to friend or foe.
