Our meal was amazing as always! First time I have had the French onion soup. One of the best I have tasted. The kitchen always turns out great dishes

Wonderful selection of flavorful food. Excellent service and quieter than Deno’s.

No modifications to food...what???
Nothing "normal" on menu...everything has some goofy flair. Mac * Cheese had kidding me? Over priced eclectic food without any customizations.

Service that is worth a tip, IMHO, requires: water, coffee etc., never require having to ask to be filled, the staff know the menu because they have tasted the food, they move in and out without making a scene, they pull plates as needed and are friendly and professional. They do not, however, reach across your plate to fill drinks or pull plates and this was the only fail on our meal.

Unexpected high-quality restaurant in a town of 400. The menu was very creative, with everything from the mandatory Colorado staples of burgers and steaks to octopus. Everything was beautifully presented. Atmosphere was "mountain casual". The dining room is small, and it was filling up by the time we left around 7, so reservations are a must.

Last winter we went here while on a ski vacation and loved it, this year not so much. While the food was delicious, everything else was not. We expected more from a $500 dinner tab, and when I say more, I mean no catching the wait staff rolling their eyes while walking away from our table, numerous screw ups on what was delivered vs. what was ordered, actually knowing what the vegetable was(it was carrots, not spaghetti squash). Also, it was a Monday, so it wasn't like the restaurant was overly busy. Clearly they don't want our business, so we won't go back.

My husband and I discovered Tabernash Tavern four years ago during our first weekend away together. We were very impressed with the food and service that visit and really looked forward to going again; we certainly were not disappointed this time and consider it a very special place. One of our favorite things to share is a charcuterie board and theirs blew us away!

We enjoyed the food, service and ambiance. However, the chef is inflexible and refuses to make any modifications to his menu items. This limits the choices and diners should know that they cannot ask to make even slight changes to any dishes.

The salmon and bacon was perfect! Food was amazing.
This is a wonderful place for a special date night. Great Bar: we had dinner in the restaurant part, then moved to the bar for an after dinner drink and carrot cake!

Best Ribeye I’ve had all year anywhere! Superb service and love the atmosphere. Special place I highly recommend based on my first visit — looking forward to returning. I travel this area once or twice a year and it is chalked up as one of my favorite finds of the new year.

Mediocre food and pricey. Good ambience and would be a fun spot to have a drink at the bar, but I don't recommend the food. Salad was overdressed, as were Brussels sprouts, steak was just okay, and the Bernaise sauce was meh.

Great food and cocktails in a really cozy setting. Good choice for a special night out!
