Always a delight eating here while visiting Avon/Arrowhead/Beaver Creek. The food was superb! Really enjoyed the Spanish Meatballs, sauce and the special Salmon with the creamy, cheesy polenta! The starters of Fries were the best I've ever tasted, so fresh, oil was clean, just the best flavors and seasoning ever topped with the yummy Aoli! Roasted Beets are fabulous, carrots were very good, although we tired of them and didn't finish. The desserts, OMG! The Carrot Cake is the best ever, seriously. And Creme brûlée absolutely divine! Can't wait to go back to the VIN!

Our server Tom and Sommelier Jeff provided us with the most outstanding experience in steamboat. The ambiance, food, wine, and service were all top tier. It truly doesn't get any better thank this. 10/10 recommendation and absolutely will be back. This place is a staple of this town but will simultaneously knock your socks off in all categories if you care about an enjoyable dining experience from a team who genuinely cares. Hats off to you all. <3

The food at 221 South Oak was incredible. We were very happy to find a complete vegetarian menu in addition to the omnivore options. The staff was wonderful, and the service could not have been better.

We have been dining at Spendido for 25 years 2 of our friends order Dover Sole for $82, can cold. Sent back came back hot. But very tough. My wife ordered salmon, just was disappointed in flavor. You would think that a good customer such as us, would have.been offered something, no charge for fish or bottle of wine. Realize end of season but we felt sad that our experience wasn’t recognized by the Vallly best restaurant.
