Awful buffet. Overpriced. When I saw the pan of short ribs clearly had been sitting out and down to bones I asked if it could be freshened. The staff seemed shock by my request. One server kept asking, “why? Is it cold?” How would I know? I didn’t touch it. But fir $42 per person it should have at least been freshly served.

Nice buffet. Excellent service. Quiet and relaxing location. Extensive wine selection. Salad and clam chowder were fabulous. Salmon and duck were excellent. Elk ragu very tasty but a bit tough. Ribeye had good flavor but also little tough. Lemon bar very good. Would definitely eat here again.

The menu posted on Open Table was several years old. The restaurant had converted to a buffet style 2 years ago. The buffet selection was sparse and even with more than half of the restaurant empty, the kitchen could/did not replenish empty platters in a timely manner. We had to ASK to have food replenished. The cost of this mediocre buffet was $42/pp not including beverages. It was the worst $42 dinner we have ever eaten. We will not be back and we would definitely not recommend this establishment to anyone.

We love this spot and have dined here many times over the years. This was a little different with a buffet for dinner, albeit a truly wonderful buffet. We enjoyed the selections and the quality of the food. And most importantly, the server was extremely nice and pleasant. Thank you for a wonderful birthday evening.

We were on vacation at Solitude. My daughter has 6 major food allergies, we spoke to the chef (Javi) early in the day about her allergies. He created versions of all the buffet items that worked for her allergies, along with some other dishes that weren't on the buffet. She actually licked her plate after dessert! Javi came out at the end and spoke to her also. It was an incredibly delicious meal for those of us who could eat the buffet and for my daughter. Thank you, Javi!

After having several amazing experiences at the Yurt in Solitude we were so disappointed by our experience this New Years Eve. When the restaurant called to confirm the reservation they described the menu options for the evening which all sounded great from the description. What was not clear was the menu was actually a buffet style service. Needless to say we were very disappointed that the restaurant served a Buffet style menu for New Year's Eve versus individual course options of the menu described. None of us were impressed with the quality of the food provided on the buffet. We have been coming to Solitude for over 16 years and this meal ranks as the worst dining experience for us and our guests.

Great place to dine. Don’t be turned off by the “buffet” style. It is the nicest buffet I’ve ever been to. Food was exceptional. Everything was cooked perfectly - I had tenderloin so tender that I could cut it with a fork.

Our family of 5 ate at St. Bernards while staying at a condo in the Powderhorn building. We had my brother and his girl friend join us. While the season was winding down (Spring break 2017) and so it was pretty quiet in the restaurant, their service and food was outstanding. Instead of the buffet style they normally do - they did family style and the food was all delicious. They also brought specially made dishes for my daughter with allergies and pasta for my two others who weren't quite wanting to eat all the other more adult fare. It is a very good value for a special meal while on vacation - and definitely more reasonable than the same style of meal at other resorts. We were impressed and glad that we chose to eat there.

A good place for dinner on any occasion and very convenient after a full day of skiing. There were ample selections of appetizers, the main course of beef, duck, and salmon were marvelous, and the deserts were enjoyable. The only thing lacking was the butternut soup that was mediocre in texture and taste and the pasta with white cream and parmesean side dish that we asked for was dry . The waitress was very pleasant and attentive and the atmosphere was pleasant. Overall a good dining experience and I would eat there again.

We enjoyed our dinner with friends visiting from NY. My only hesitation in giving food a better rating has to do with the buffet selections. The website menu lists numerous seafood/fish options but the reality of our dinner choices was decidedly weak in that category. To be fair the website states that the menu items change frequently. I would have thought that a fish option would have been a good addition to the buffet. Fried calamari, while crispy and crunchy, does not compensate. All that being said, I was very happy with the entire experience. Service was outstanding.

Open table reservations didn't work well as they didn't have our reservation 15 min later. But they made space for us despite that. The price of 38$ per adult and half for children worked out well when we tasted the food. One would be hard pressed to get that value elsewhere, buts not cheap.
They are quite accommodating and offered to make us food for kids not on menu too.
