The food at the Dunraven is consistently very good. The menu doesn’t change much but that’s a good thing since we love what they have on the menu. Very nice variety of Italian, steaks and fresh seafood.

The staff is amazing. So attentive and made our evening so special.

You will need a reservation but it is worth the wait.

Whenever we travel we are always looking for where the locals eat. We know that’s usually where the best food and service are. That was definitely the case with the Dunraben Inn. Excellent Italian quisine with a low key family friendly atmosphere. The food was also a great value compared to other Italian restaurants nearby.

We were sat in the back dining room. Shortly after we were seated the rest of the room, sans one other table, was filled with a wedding party. The noise level continued to increase to the point that conversation was impossible. We finished our meal as quickly as we could since talking was impossible. I feel that single tables should not be sat with the guests of the wedding party just to get the other diners (us)in and out as quickly as possible.

I was recommended this restaurant by a stranger in 2017. Went for a visit. At first glance, I'd probably pass on it but we gave it a shot. We were glad we did! The steaks (stuffed filet minion and rib eye steaks) were both amazing! We returned for our next anniversary in 2018 with high expectations after such a good experience in 2017! The experience we had was absolutely amazing, with great service, amazing food and a great atmosphere. It's official, every anniversary, we will be there. And any other time we come to Estes!

We dine at Dunraven Inn a couple of times a year when we visit Estes Park. The food and service is always wonderful. A great place to dine when visiting Estes Park. Be sure to make reservations to peak travel times (summer).

We had eaten there before and were looking forward to enjoying a nice meal together. Unfortunately after being seated we realised there was a party for local residents taking place in a back room and those attending had spilled into the main dinning area. Even though we were on the opposite side of the room and sitting at a very small table we were not able to hear each other or those waiting on us. The food was good but the noise level made it difficult to enjoy it. We wished we would have been informed there was a party going on and been offered to sit in a different room. Based on our first visit we would recommend, based on this visit we would encourage friends to eat elsewhere if they are wanting to share a nice meal.

You can't really base the experience at the Dunraven Inn on the "what would you rate this on" section above. Those comments are based on...well I don't think much of them frankly. They're very "The World Started in 2008" oriented, in my opinion.

And the Dunraven Inn isn't of that world. It's older and that's OK. God help it if it ever tried to become vibrant and vegan, and help the world if all dining establishments have to be.

It was good. The service was excellent, it was fun in a throwback kind of way and while not overly crowded it was a bit noisy (not in a bow to being vibrant, it's just a small place).

The food wasn't outstanding, the kitchen might have been having trouble with one of the specials as I saw at least two of them being returned, but it's still worth the time the drive to get here.

We were promptly seated by the hostess, and she made a point to seat us by the fireplace. Our waitress (Hungarian background) was attentive, helpful, and answered our questions well. The service was very good! The soup, salad and steak were prepared properly and were very tasty! We are looking forward to our next visit to the restaurant.

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!

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.
