We have made it a habit to have our birthday dinners at The Dunraven. We love the atmosphere and the outstanding food, however once a year is about all we can afford!

We have never had a bad meal or bad service at this great place! Portions are just right, and we usually have leftovers if we have a pasta dish. Definitely the freshest seafood in town. This time I had salmon and it was absolutely delicious!

This place is always a must when we are inn Estes Park. Truly great memories are attached. The food is incredible and the wait staff are the friendliest. Brian our server made us smile, laugh and thankful that we made this stop once again at the Dunraven. Don’t debate, just go!

We are locals and have dined at Dunraven many times before, but, this time was disturbing because we were seated in back room that had loud party going on and we could barely hear each other (hard on ears)!!

We met friends by accident after both parties were already seated. The wait staff cheerfully accommodated our request for a change in seating and the food was excellent, as was the whole experience. This was our first visit to the Dunraven Inn and we will be back again.

Always a great place to eat and on our to do list when we visit Estes Park! I had the chicken piccata and my husband had the fettuccine Alfredo. Both were excellent. We also love the lasagne here and they make a good filet. Highly recommend

The Dunraven is a historical local favorite. Italian by nature, and great steaks. Our favorites are their garlic salad dressing, Filet Mignon, Lasagna, and Italian sausage and meatball. Great selection of wines and cocktails and desserts. We love to finish with Spumoni. Decor is old feel Italian, quaint, dark. The staff is very friendly.

We've been coming here for years. This is probably the best restaurant in Estes Park. We have never seen it "not crowded". Be sure to make reservations before you go. Our waitress Erica has been there a long time and is just the best. Don't recall ever having bad service from any of the staff. I always get the same thing everytime so can't make recommendations on all of the items on the menu, but the baked ziti and side of meatballs is delicious. I definitely recommend eating here on your visit to Estes Park.

We went to the Dunraven to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We were greeted very warmly
and seated promptly. The food was delicious as always, and the service was excellent. One of the things we love about the Dunraven is its cozy ambiance.

The service from my waitress was great from the beginning and that was about the only thing I thought was truly great. I ordered the New York Strip with a side of pasta. The meal also came with a salad or soup and bread. The homemade creamy ranch dressing was good.

However, when I got my main entree, I was not satisfied. I ordered my steak medium rare and the steak was still raw in the middle and the fat on the side was unrendered and the pasta was just slightly overcooked. The fettuccine sauce was great though. I sent the steak back and when I got it back, one section was almost well done and the other was rare.

If you're dining here, I would stay away from the steak, but would try the pasta. My waitress did everything possible to help in the situation. She came back multiple times to make sure I was ok and the food was good, but I knew at the end of the day the kitchen wouldn't be able to get my steak right.

We had eaten here once before. Made reservations this time. Especially liked the sharing plate provision since we are older and don't eat as much anymore and we didn't want to take food back to our room. Veal Marsala was excellent and just the right size. Caesar Salad is well worth the $5.00 charge. Restaurant provided free dessert for our anniversary. Our waiter was Colin and he was very pleasant and attentive. All the wait staff was attentive and continually assisted each other in keeping water glasses full and cleaning off vacated tables. I would consider the Dunraven to be one of the best places to eat in Estes Park.

3 out of 4 steaks were cooked to specific request (medium) but the fourth request for medium cooked steak came back RAW! Had to be sent back to kitchen. All else was perfectly delicious! We will be back, and hope that when we request medium on steaks again, they will come back medium cooked! Thank you!
