No modifications to food...what???
Nothing "normal" on menu...everything has some goofy flair. Mac * Cheese had mushrooms...you 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.

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.

I ordered the Koren short ribs. I can't tell you how under cooked they were. Should have been fork tender but I had trouble cutting them with a steak knife. Fatty and tough. I liked the pickles but nothing else on the plate. You should consider removing it from your menu. A friend ordered a burger and she liked that.

My husband and I first visited Tabernash Tavern 3 years ago and you served us RAW pork chops. We did not try you again until last Saturday Jan 13, 2018. I don't think we will be back.

The ambiance at Tabernash was great and the hostess was very accommodating to our party of 4. Two of us decided to split the sea bass special as it was very pricey. It came out on one dish and I separated it into two plates. The waitress said that it was not the” chef’s thing” to split the meal for us. It was cold so we sent both plates back after we tasted the sea bass. The waitress brought back the sea bass rewarmed along with the side dishes all on one plate! I had to divide already tasted food again!! Although the dish was excellent it was not the 8 oz as stated For the $52 cost. I think it is not cool to serve already served food on one plate. Our husbands’ Paella was very good.
I would go back here for Happpy Hour and hope for the best. It is the only name in town and I think they know it.

Our foursome enjoyed a lamb chop special, wild game meatballs and top sirloin all perfectly cooked. We all had salads with a lovely Elderberry vinaigrette. As frequent diners at Tabernash Tavern always wanting to try new dishes SO We also ordered a NYE Cassoulet which caught my eye for the clever replacement of french white beans with our native and traditional New Years Day lucky charm of black-eyed peas. This dish, for all its promise was disappointing- A thin flavorless broth, too much crumbled bacon, ham. But enough salt to kill any other flavors from duck or sausage. My raging thirst later that night had me wishing I sent it back.

Very disappointed in the service. Was New Year's Eve and took way too long to get our food. Table of 6 seated next to us and after us got their food before us. And very expensive. The porter house steak was pricey and mediocre.

My husband and I stole a night away for the kids and went here! It was perfect for our special date night! The server was knowledgeable and charming! He gave us the right choices after we outlined we were stuck on all the great appetizer options! The brie with nuts was delicious and just the right size for two people!
My husband had the special - the 12 oz bison steak. It was cooked to perfection and so tasty! I had the filet, it was melt in your mouth good! We each had our own type of potato on our plates, each were very good!
The wine list was extensive, but lots of choices that complimented our meats.
The Tavern looks like a prop for a Wild West film on the outside, but so warm, cozy and nicely appointed on the inside. We will be back for sure!

Good food, good service. Nice place. Value for what you get is not great. Wonderful at helping us sit together (3 different reservations). Not allowing (capability?) to split checks is ridiculous in this day of age where the customer experience should be centric. Large group (12 across 4 families) of us as on a family vacation. Allowed us to pay various forms (we all paid cash). But... still not a great experience to have to figure that out at end. Just know this going in...
