Twin Owls Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Mixed. I would give it 4 stars overall but my steak was average and under cooked even after describing to the server how I wanted it prepared. Had to send it back. Even cooked to my taste it was an average steak. Other aspects of the meal where fine. But the centerpiece of the meal disappointed. It is a "Steak House" so the expectation is high for the main course.
The restaurant did not disappoint! We started at the bar for a pre dinner cocktail. Thad, one of the owners, recommended a Scotch and wine that were both spot on! I had the Beef filet and my husband had the Bison filet. Both were perfectly cooked and delicious. The entire evening was wonderful! The restaurant, the Staff and the food was first class. If you are in town, this is a MUST VISIT restaurant!
I was sadly disappointed with the filet mignon, prime rib and ribeye. Poor meat quality,not cooked well and tasted like charcoal. The bread, salad and appetizer were good as well as the sides and dessert! Definitely not worth the high prices though. The service was fantastic from our waiter Val. He did everything he could to make us happy. Beautiful place.
We were disappointed in only one thing. When we made our reservation we were asked if we were celebrating any special occasions. We were in fact, making the trip to Estes Park to celebrate our 43 wedding anniversary. We shared this information when making the reservation. To our surprise when we arrived for dinner, not a single person at the restaurant mentioned of the anniversary celebration. Our disappointment stems not from the quality of food, service or value; it is clearly due to no mention of the anniversary celebration after asking when the reservation was made! We have been fortunate to have dined at numerous high quality restaurants across the country and have always been please to have special occasions recognized. Generally, this recognition has been a verbal acknowledgement of the event, which is more important than any special food items that some restaurants have offered. My advice to Twin Owls Steakhouse is simple - if you ask about special occasions when reservations are being made, acknowledge it upon arrival! It leaves a lasting impression, more so than a good meal at a reasonable price!!
My husband and I had a wonderful dinner with superior service from our server, Natalia. It was his birthday and we were treated to a free dessert. We were seated next to a large group, but the noise was minimal. The Spanish guitar player added the perfect music to the evening.
The parking for the restaurant is absolutely horrible!!! Unfortunately the parking puts you in a ‘mood’ before you even get inside the building. The entire parking lot seems as though it was designed for compact cars only. The spots are very small and very tight and layed out in weird angles. We ended up with a scratch on one side and a door dent on the other side of our car. Very upsetting. Employees are aware of the parking problem and can only laugh and joke about it because “ nothing will ever change it “ due to the fact that the owners “want to cram as many cars in the lot as possible “ Really ruins an otherwise great experience.
The first time I came to twin owls was in 2014. I remember it being impeccable. I have bragged about the food ever since. However this time, the food was not great. It had changed. The two de tour appetizer was very different and not very good. The main meal had an amazing steak but the lobster was under cooked and actually made both of us sick to our stomachs. The service was great and the atmosphere were great, but it was unfortunate that we paid $160 to feel sick to our stomachs with not a great meal.
My wife & I were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and Twin Owls made it very special! The hostess sat us at a very private upstairs table overlooking everything. Val, our waiter was great in offering suggestions and making sure we had everything and all the other waitstaff were just fabulous! We have been here before and will definitely continue to dine here!
Overall this is a really nice restaurant. My husband and I felt it was a little overpriced and not a big selection of entrees, which was a little disappointing. The veggies that came with our meal were pretty bland, but the meat was tender and fill of flavor. I would defiantly recommend this restaurant for a nice date night or special occasion.
Our experience was great as far as the ambiance and the service. The only complaint I had was that our food wasn’t quite cooked the way we wanted. My pork chop was pink in the middle Andy husbands elk was more rare than we would have liked. Other than that, everything was great! We will give this place another chance if we come back that way.
