This was our first time at the Dunraven Inn. We had a lovely meal and our server, Olga, was fantastic. Everyone who works there was very friendly and it has a great atmosphere. We will definitely stop in again when we are back in Estes Park.

Out waiter Colin was very friendly and efficient. We had the 2 for 1 Friday filet special. Steak was very tender and cooked medium rare as we asked. The broccoli cheese soup was delicious, good baked potato, Brussel sprouts were a little undercooked. We had an enjoyable anniversary dinner.

The atmosphere and food were absolutely terrific. The service/assistance from the lady who was also acting as hostess was amazing, but our actual waiter was very slow. Slow to come to the table, slow to take our order, slow to respond to requests. We weren't in any particular rush, but didn't expect to have to wait so long for drinks, appetizers, then an hour for bread and salads and then another half hour for entrees.

Overall we enjoyed the meal and would return, but we would hope for faster service.

This was our 12th year to go to the Dunraven Inn. It has become a family tradition and one that even the youngest of our grandchildren looks forward to every time we're in Estes. The service is great, even for a big party like ours. They make us feel welcomed and wanted and are very cordial and accommodating. We will continue our tradition there as long as we can.

Went for my birthday. The food and service are always excellent and this last time was no exception. My family has Celiac's which requires gluten free dining. The kitchen is very aware to carefully prepare without cross contamination, which earns them 10 stars instead of 5!

We were seated in a cramped corner table with no room to move, very uncomfortable, so we left without being able to stay for desert. This was a very rude way to treat guests.

The service was exceptional. The food was great. We were having such a good time we did not notice that we out lasted the rest of the guests. The staff never mentioned that we had stayed past closing time. The atmosphere was perfect for the six of us celebrating a special birthday. Everyone we talked to including our server, the bartender and the manager treated us very well. I was in charge of the restaurant choice and was very pleased with how the evening turned out. The overall price including dinner, wine and deserts was reasonable especially for the quality.

The Dunraven is our favorite restaurant in Estes Park when we are there on vacation. We always go to this restaurant on our last evening in Estes. The food and service is exceptional. They have a great wine list and full bar. If they have them, the mussels are my favorite dish. However, everything I have ordered there is exceptional. I highly recommend this restaurant while you are in Estes Park.

My Husband and I went for a date night & we were not disappointed! Making the reservation was easy with OpenTable, we we're seated right away, our waiter (Brian) was terrific, so was the whole crew, the food was superb! We started with the Sallops, then split the New York steak with a side of spaghetti & we each got a salad. I would highly recommend this restaurant & we will most definitely be back!
