    This is a hotel restaurant. The views are nice. But it has all of the atmosphere and ambiance of an Applebee's. The food wasn't bad, but everything is priced well above it's weight class, considering how lacking it is in environment and general feel.

    Good thing the view out the windows was very nice because we had to stare at it for 45 minutes before we got to order only appetizers. We lost track of time before we could order entrees. Were never asked if we wanted any more drinks, had to ask 3 times for bread side dish. Never got offered dessert. Shame that both entrees were delicious but we were so tired by byvthen couldn't enjoy. Really not the great romantic evening planned.

    TraverseResponded on September 20, 2023

    I'm sorry to hear that your dining experience didn't meet your expectations and impacted your romantic evening. It's disappointing to hear service fell short and affected the overall enjoyment of a meal, especially when the food itself was delicious. Your feedback is important to us and we appreciate you highlighting areas that could use improvement. Thank you for sharing your experience, and I hope any future visits are more enjoyable.

    Oh. My. Goodness. It was a toss up between a few different places but one particular forum suggested Traverse. All the review said was between the views and the food it was absolutely life changing. So we booked a rez, got up there, and had an absolutely amazing dining experience! Can’t recommend it enough and we will definitely be back. The Elk tenderloin was indeed, life changing.

    I wouldn’t rush back, unfortunately. It’s a pretty view, however it was the same view from my room above. The food was nice but you’re paying for the view. I went on my birthday, a solo traveler getting away for a night and even though I wrote it on my reservation, it wasn’t acknowledged which I thought was a missed opportunity for a service add, just to acknowledge it. The server corrected my pronunciation of my order. I’m Australian, so it wasn’t that different! The steak was undercooked but it was nice food.

    The charcuterie tray was excellent as well as the Elk Tenderloin, with delicious polenta & broccolini . Good wine selection. Airline chicken breast was good. Although everything was good, we didn’t feel it deserved top dollar, which is what we paid.

    We always love coming to Traverse. In reality, we don't get up there often enough as Breckenridge is our second home. The only issue with our dinner last night was the apparent inadvertent serving of my wife's wrong order. She ordered filet which was to come with mashed red potatoes and asparagus, and she was served elk with what looked like yellow grits and parts of broccolini. The waiter, Miles, was very apologetic and otherwise very good and attentive. Not certain how this mistake could have occurred as the meals are very different. Notwithstanding this issue, we will return to Traverse as mistakes happen.

    One of the great locations in Breck at the Lodge. The Charcuterie appetizer was underwhelming this time around, very small and limited selection. We've had it in the past and it was special. Salmon special was very good.

    The vibe and the view in this place is so chill and beautiful, respectively. We ordered 2 salads, pesto pasta and Italian wedding soup. Oh and Italian lemon cake (delish). All were good. The server was very efficient and sweet; not rushing us out the door even tho we were the last to leave. The bar is beautiful. I am leaving A Basin and am going to go immediately to that bar and have a drink.

    This is such a beautiful location to be such a disappointment! We were one of 3 tables in the entire restaurant at 5:00 pm. We had a server in-training, with another server shadowing her. They came to our table so frequently that we could not carry a conversation with our guests without their frequent interruptions. Our simple food order was especially disappointing; 2 large Cobb salads (lettuce, tomato, 3 slices of an avocado and micro bits of chicken), a chicken Caesar (chicken was dried out and even though anchovies were requested, it came without), the halibut was nothing special for the price. I cannot recommend Traverse other than for having a great view!!!
