The only thing they did well was nit charge us! It's not even Snowmass Kirchen anymore AND NOT A STEAKHOUSE. They've "rebranded" to be like every other restaurant on the planet that serves a filet, grilled salmon and a Caesar salad. They couldn't make a martini even after 3 tries, they served Italian bottled dressing on the Caesar and the filets were grey. It was a disaster! We never would have gone if they had properly described it in Open Table.

Terrible. The staff were not well trained. The restaurant did not have a proper wine list. The prices were high. The chef was unable to produce a medium rare steak. The manager had no idea how to deal with their failure and blamed the client for not recognizing what a properly prepared steak looked like. When asked for dressing or mustard etc failed to return in time to use those requested dressings. They did not offer any kind of reduction for their errors. It took us a very long time to complete our dining. 2 of the 4 of us had lost their appetite by the time the salads arrived. I could go on.

only two servers for Valentines Day, we were told that one server had quit that day and were short staffed. It was quite obvious that the two remaining waiters were overwhelmed.

This is a serviceable restaurant for the hotel but nothing more. Although the wait staff wanted to provide good service they just don't seem trained in exactly how to accomplish that. There are plenty of servers just not working yet quite as a team. The menu is very pricey - both food and drink - so you really expect GREAT food which sadly was not the case here.

Service was virtually inexistent. The drink order took forever. The food, took even longer. When the food did arrive, the steak arrived alone on the plate. The wine I ordered 15 min ago still didn't show up. The side dish finally arrived about 5 min after the wine. It wasn't until 1 hour into dinner I had my complete order. Also of note, there was no Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot, by the glass, available. The food was good, but poor service ruined the experience.

NYE prix fixe. Total ripoff. The food was average at best. The staff was not trained on how to provide service. We got water right away, then waited 15 minutes watching several of the staff bustle around ignoring us(not their table). We thought maybe everyone thought we were someone else's table. I finally flagged somebody down and asked if we could see a waiter, order drinks, get things started. Three of our party ordered Filet, the waitress never asked how we wanted it prepared. I thought maybe they were fillet tips or something but no they were steaks and they all came out differently. Even getting the bill was a chore. I had to flag somebody down again. She brought the bill I put my credit card up and we watched her clean glasses and clear tables for about 10 minutes before we finally flagged her down again to run the card. I don't think they were willfully providing bad service I just think they didn't know what they were supposed to do. There was also a little bit of a language barrier. When I made the reservation I was told it was a New Year's eve buffet but it ended up being prix fixe, sort of the opposite of a buffet. The fancy lunches we had at Gwyn's High alpine were half as expensive and ten times better.

We were disappointed in the amount of food we received with our orders. I ordered the shrimp & crab meat. Four pieces of average size shrimp with a sliver of crab meat & nothing else to go along with it for $34. Needless to say I was hungry when I left. My husband ordered the free range chicken (expecting a hardy meal) and it was skimpy. Way over priced for the amount of food. The service was great and we enjoyed our ahi tuna appetizer, but the food is was over priced.

Our first waiter did not give us ample time to peruse the drink menu. He kept standing just a few feet away and made us feel rushed to decide. Eventually he just left and another waiter showed up with no introduction. When we started to order he had to stop us so he could get a pen. When he came back just 5 seconds later, he had gotten our order wrong. Then our wine came BEFORE our aperitifs. My side order was forgotten, then two of them came together. Add screaming kids and it was not an enjoyable evening. Snowmass regularly hires young, foreigners as wait staff but this group was very poorly trained. We will find a different place next year.

Disappointing overall. Limited menu, slow service (especially to start with) despite being virtually empty.
I'd say a restaurant that doesn't have to try very had due to location...so it didn't try very hard!

Unless you stick with a simple burger, you will be disappointed. The ahi tuna tasted like it can out of a can. The mussels were not edible. Huge dissappointment for a New Years Eve meal... Stay away

Dinner menu not as represented online- completely different including much higher prices, no pasta, no pizza. Waiter admitted discrepancies and apologized but offered no compensation. Bottom line: over priced; mediocre food for dinner. Lunch spot only!

Restaurant had already run out of two items by our 7pm reservation. All of the other items we ordered (filet, chicken, potatoes, soup) all tasted bland, like not a grain of salt or pepper was used.

Had a nice Christmas Eve dinner at the Snowmass Kitchen. Started with Caesar salads that were very nicely prepared and very tasty. Had small spoons with capers, bacon, onion egg and pickled anchovies that you could add to the salad. Was unable to get the salty anchovies instead of pickled.

The meatloaf and the ribeye were excellent. Cooked perfectly great flavor. Unfortunately the asparagus came out cold but they were promptly replaced.

The blackberry cosmo was excellent and the wine was very nice. I might suggest for a high end restaurant they use nicer wine glasses. Service was very good; nice and attentive.

We are summer residents and decided to try the Snowmass Kitchen in spite of mixed reviews. We were pleasantly quite satisfied with both the food and service which were the focal points of the negative reviews. We will go back.

 (Raleigh)·Dined on February 10, 2014

Our waitress never looked our way once we ordered our food. We couldn't order more wine with dinner and the manager had to come to our table and ask us what we each had so he could split the bill. It was obvious that the waitress was busy with another party in a private room because she walked back and forth near our table. The food was good, but overshadowed by the poor service and I resent the 18% gratuity tacked on for our table of eight.

There were 7 of us for dinner. We had a very nice table in a corner of the room with great ambiance and plenty of space. We were able to converse with everyone at our table without a problem. The food was good, the service was good although the food was a bit slow in arriving. We will go back to this restaurant.

I have dined here for lunch and dinner. Lunch has been fine. I had dinner there twice last Feb ski trip. First experience was great so I dined there a second time sane week. I ordered the same chicken dish. It was so salty that it was not eatable. I dined at this restaurant again this week with my family. My husband and I both had the Italian Wedding Soup. It was so salty that neither of us could drink it. My main course was also very salty - both the chicken and the mushroom sauce. Told the wait staff. They didn't act surprised and the chef didn't come out to tell us they tasted the food and whether they agreed or disagreed with us. I think the chef has a salty palate or is not supervising his cooks. I don't recommend this restaurant

Unfortunately the food was cold. The "rechauds" did not work properly.
Creme Brulee was out at 7.00 pm. Quality of the food was good. Used plates
were not removed from the table quick enough and cutlery was not replaced.
We had to steel it from another table. Seats at the window are quite cold, we had to put on a coat.

We had high hopes, but were underwhelmed. Restaurant was oddly empty for Fourth of July week, but we were still seated right next to a family with loud children. We were moved when we asked for another table, as did another couple, but noise was hardly better. Menu was very short and not very appealing. All four of us were unimpressed by our meals. Won't be back and can't recommend it, which is a shame since there are terribly few fine dining options in Snowmass.

We were up for a night in Snowmass and needed a good place to eat. The Kitchen was recommended and so we made reservations and went over. The atmosphere is modern and nice. Our server was new and there were some struggles with getting him to remember we were there, but he was courteous and apologetic when he realized it. The food nothing special, but not bad either...a little disappointing for the price, but overall it was ok. But what really stood out to us was the service of the restaurant manager. This guy was incredible and did everything possible to accommodate us and make us feel like celebrities. He knew their wine list cold and recommended some fantastic wines. He really made this experience for us.

Service was poor; food was good. We were seated immediately after walking in, but were not given menus or a wine list, even though the restaurant did not appear that busy. Waited several minutes & then asked someone walking by. Ordered a glass of wine & a beer; got 2 glasses of wine. Once we got it, food was good, but bland. Then, we waited for several minutes with nothingn in front of us, and had to ask for the check. Overall, would not recommend.
