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.

The service was absolutely horrible. We were celebrating a birthday l- which was noted in the reservation. There was no mention of it or an effort to even make our dining experience better.

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!

We had a wonderful meal. I had the lamb chops, my wife had the pork chop and my son had the beef tenderloin. All was excellent. You will not be disappointed and the dessert was fantastic!

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.

Very disappointing. Vegetarian entree of spaghetti squash and burnt eggplant was barely edible. Filet was tough. Service was poor. I made a reservation for 3 a few months ago and was given the choice of a cramped corner banquette table for 2 with an extra chair or a table next to the bar. Hostess refused to seat us at an appropriately sized table in the dining room. She said all larger tables had been specifically reserved by other guests even though the restaurant was quite empty at 6pm and OpenTable does not allow table specification. We opted for the bar seating to have space but endured a noisy evening with bar guests predictably congregating next to our table and speaking so loudly we could not talk among ourselves. In addition, the waitstaff did not treat us like normal restaurant guests but as bar guests merely having drinks and a snack. The waiter acted annoyed when we did not order liquor. He did not serve us bread with our meal until we asked and then only gave us three crackers. It took two more requests to get a bread basket, most likely because they viewed us as transient bar guests, who committed the grave sin of not ordering liquor. The server also did not bother to refill glasses or ask us whether we wanted to order soda and Pelligrino refills. He only told us about the 2 entree specials of prime rib and lobster when prodded. The restaurant offers fresh black and white truffle but the menu did not indicate which dishes were candidates for truffle enhancement. Although the server mentioned that truffles were available, he provided no insight as to which dishes would work well with truffle. Moreover, Spelendido is known for its desserts, but we were never offered the dessert menu and left without dessert. While we paid for a fine dining experience we endured an evening of bar dining. A waste of time and money.

We have a home in Beaver Creek and like dining at Splendido. However, the night we dined they were packed with customers and service was not up to it normal high quality. We had to ask for bread for our table, water refills, none of the waitstaff came to the table when our friend accidentally spilled a glass of very expensive Bordeaux wine on the table. Thus, we had to give our napkins to help soak up the wine. We dined with this mess on our table through the entire dinner. NOT ACCEPTABLE FOR A 5 STAR RESTAURANT. Another item was they were out of our favorite wine and we were substituted the lesser quality Bordeaux. If a 5 star restaurant is out of a wine, they should be removing it from their wine list. Overall, pretty disappointing to our guests as we told them this was the best restaurant in Beaver Creek. They were unimpressed to say the least.

Obviously, these were the problems we encountered. The good items were the food and piano music.

I had been there in February with my family. When I found out I was coming back to Beaver Creek I had to come back!!! My friend LOVED it as well. It was quiet because it was the end of the season. So, was nice. After dinner we took our wine and sat at the bar to listen to the piano. We got our own private concert and was FANTASTIC! Such a fun night. The food was out of this world, the same with the wine selection, our server was wonderful as was the entire staff. Love Splendido and hope to come back again in the future!!
