"Everyone at Olazzo is friendly. I had the grilled eggplant, which is very good. My wife had the lasagna which she enjoyed. The service here is very attentive and friendly, and really makes Olazzo a wonderful place to go."

Serpico is a collaboration between James Beard award-winning chef Peter Serpico and restaurateur Stephen Starr. Located on South Street, the 60-seater will have a true neighborhood feel, with cozy booths, counter seating and a small bar at which the full menu will be available. <br /><br />Serving dinner only, the cuisine is ingredient-driven offering a seasonally evolving menu of playful yet familiar takes on global fare. A small hand-picked list of food-friendly wines will perfectly complement the menu and a quality cocktail program will focus on boutique spirits.

"I hosted a large party of 20 and everything had an outstanding meal. The food was delicious and the service was top notch as always. With a party that large we probably had everything on the menu and everyone enjoyed their BCV experience. I'm been to BCV many times and am continually impressed. Thank you for making our evening wonderful."

"This was our 1st visit to T Pig. We both had the adult grilled cheese, and it was delicious! The items on the lunch menu look very interesting and we plan to come back to try more. Wine is usually my favorite part of the meal and T Pig has a great wine list with options from low to very high end."

"This was our 1st visit and it will not be our last. Everything was very good. Our server, Lee, was friendly and attentive. Aurum has a wonderful wine list; we had the Stag's Leap Cabernet (hard to go wrong there). We split the special lamb appetizer. Wow. That was delicious! For dinner my wife had the chicken and I had the salmon. Both were delicious but I think that the chicken is the better entree. The views there are wonderful; it's so relaxing to watch the river. And finally the owner, Phil, was extremely friendly and very interested to make sure that we had a pleasant experience. Steamboat has some great restaurants, and now has another competitor for the best in the 'boat."

"Hazies is the best for a good leisurely sit down meal on the mountain. They have a very good wine list. We had a bottle of the Gundlach Bundschu cabernet. For lunch I had the Shepherds Pie and my wife had the goose special. They were both delicious. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Our water glasses never wanted for water. And the views are fantastic. Take a break from skiing, relax, and enjoy a good meal."
