By far the best restaurant in Beaver Creek. The food, service, and piano player never disappoint here. I highly recommend the seafood tower to share as an app - it was such a fun way start to the meal with huge king crab claws, beautiful shrimp with dipping sauces, salmon, scallop crudo, lobster salad stuffed in its tail, oysters, and ahi tuna! My entree, the veal schnitzel (the special that night) was full of flavor and had a rich bernaise with duck fat potatoes and unique favored broccoli medley. The duck dish was delicious and perfectly cooked. The kitchen has an open concept through the glass so you can see the cooks at all their stations and the chefs expertly plating the food which is a fun element to the atmosphere. It is a very impressive and well run kitchen. Matt, the dining room manager, is friendly and extremely knowledgeable with wine. The wine list is outstanding. Desserts are a work of art. This is our favorite restaurant in the valley, and consistently have a memorable evening here. Thank you again for another wonderful experience!

We've been to Splendid multiple times. This, by far, was our worst experience. While the food was good the service was below expectations. From the moment we walked in we felt like second class patrons. The waitstaff took much less interest in servicing our table than others. The females at our table were upset since the waiter only poured wine for the males and ignored them. Additionally, our table was adjacent to the bar. The piano player was excellent but the sound was too loud for any conversation during dinner.

Dinner itself was excellent (you MUST try the lamb), although we were seated 20+ min after our reservation time. Luckily, the piano player at the bar was wonderful and we had an excellent time listening and "challenging " him to play a varierty of different tunes.

Very poor service. We waited on our food for two hours and were at the restaurant for four...I love a good long dinner but we were starving and largely ignored by the waiter as he was so busy. The food was very ok - for the high prices we expected it to be better. Will likely skip Splendido in favor of other restaurants next trip.

My Wife and I ate here on 1/24/19 for our anniversary. We found the food, while good, did not meet our expectations. We have no problem paying premium prices for fine dining; it just seemed that Splendido only had the "Premium Price" but lacked the food, service, or ambience one would expect for that cost.
Dated Interior, Average Piano Bar

Splendido delivers an excellent meal every time. Since we've been coming here, I have never had a disappointing one. Virtually all aspects of a dish are well-executed.

Tonight, we started with the special appetizer for the table: scallop crudo garnished with basil & grape slices. It was very tasty yet subtle. My husband had the wagyu beef tartare, which he said was excellent. For his entree, he enjoyed the monkfish with the short rib, both of which were cooked perfectly. My brother had the special appetizer king crab claws. He said there was so much meat, he could have just that as his entree. His entree was the Dover sole, which he has had before (my husband has also had this). Their only complaint about this dish, consistently, has been that by the time it is served, it is slightly overcooked. I had the humongous ribeye WITH BONE IN(!). It came with crisped potatoes & sauteed broccolini. This dish was also cooked perfectly & will also provide several generous meals over the next few days.

For dessert, we all shared the lemon, an innovative dish that came with a bed of lemon custard overlaid with an almond flour crumble, shaved something green (?maybe the olive oil?), & topped with a scoop of homemade lemon sorbet. The parting sweet gift, a standard, for tonight was a milk chocolate covered mango truffle on a stick.

The service is gracious & accommodating. The restaurant is elegant without being stuffy. The live piano music of standards is enjoyable without being intrusive.

Splendido continues to be a gem.

We loved this restaurant back in March and again this December. The desert is out of the world, truly amazing in March it was the mushroom and now the tree although we complemented with the snowman. My wife wanted the caviar we will be back.

This restaurant is a must!

While the roaring fire with wine was stupendous and the appetizers were absolutely wonderful, the main course was poor (i.e., COLD mash truffled potatoes, and cold lamb). The taste of the main course was poor at best. It was bland, and lifeless. After having visited Splendid numerous times, I just find that the restaurant has declined significantly. When we talked with the staff, they tried to warm up the potatoes; however, the second try the potatoes were Luke warm. I just was extremely disappointed in the meal, and then again, how it was handled and the result. I am unsure about returning since we are Denver. It is very upsetting to have this experience at such a formerly wonderful restaurant. It is especially concerning since we were there to celebrate Christmas with friends.

This was by far the best meal of our ski trip! Not only was the food outstanding, but the service and ambiance was top notch as well. Live piano music, candlit tables, and quixk, attentive service throughout the evening. The crab pasta appetizer was one of the best dishes I’ve ever had. We also tried the scallop crudo and the octopus appetizers which were both really delicious. I ordered the monkfish entree, and my husband got their steak special which was a wonderful size portion cooked to perfection. You must try the lemon fennel dessert which is their signature dessert. You should not miss this dining experience on your trip. It was well worth the Uber drive to Beaver Creek for us from Vail and we willl make this a tradition.

We decided on the tasting menu and were not disappointed. Each of the courses were beautiful presentations and gave us a wide variety of tastes to enjoy. The melon and speck, the duck, and the diver sole (yes, we added it to the tasting menu) were truly memorable. Service (Ogi, sorry about the spelling) was excellent. The carrot cake was also a treat. A first class experience.

We are long-time Splendido customers. After David left, the restaurant went through a rough patch. We had three disappointing experiences in a row. But after hearing from others that it has found itself again we decided to try one more time. It was great. The Dover Sole, their signature dish, was fresh tasting and prepared perfectly, not rubbery (yes, that had been a problem). The Halibut was done as well as one can do Halibut with enough of a great sauce to make actually taste like something. The salads were beautiful and dressed well. Didn't have a dessert but they looked great. It's pricey but competitive with the other fancy places in the Valley. We're back in the fold
