"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."

A culinary delight with an incredible view. Board the Gondola from 6:00pm – 8:30pm for an elegant dinner with the best views in the valley. Open June 26 through September 6, Hazie’s features jet fresh seafood and Rocky Mountain game. Appetizers and cocktails are also available at the bar.

"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."

Experience the quintessential Colorado winter gourmet dining experience. Set atop the Steamboat Ski Resort at 9,325’, Ragnar’s is one of Steamboat’s finest on-mountain restaurants featuring pastas, seafood, game and beef specials, all with a Scandinavian flair. Lunch is served from 11:30 to 2:15pm with entrées ranging from $15-$25. Dinner begins with a gondola ride to a waiting snowcat-driven sleigh ride under the stars to a spectacular Scandinavian five-course dining experience with attentive service in this secluded mountain retreat. Dinner guests load the gondola at 6:00pm and return to the base area between 9:00pm and 10:00pm.

"Ragnar's has very good food and very good service. It's a very nice place to relax and have a nice sit down lunch while skiing. I had the half salmon sandwich and cup of soup and my wife had the burger."

Our food is a reflection of our belief in cooking simply, honestly and innovatively. We designed our restaurant to provide a dining experience of superior quality within a comfortable atmosphere, unique to Steamboat.

"Bistro CV continues to please. First, their wine list is amazing. Great choices for a wide range of prices and styles. It's hard to go wrong there. Second, the food is amazing. The chef is a food artist. We both had the chicken, which is delicious. After dinner my wife ordered the Apple cake. Ok, I had a bite too. And it was also delicious. Third, the service continues to be top notch. Very friendly, knowledgable, and attentive. Good service is so important and BCV backs up everything else that they do so well with unmatched service. Finally, I love the new decor. It's not a big change but gives a feeling of a little more warmth than previous."

For years, owners Nat Ongsangkoon & Dia Khanthongthip have dreamed of bringing Thai market foods to DC, and are excited about the canvas Soi 38 presents. As natives of Bangkok, Thailand, they grew up relishing trips to the night market for some of the best food in Thailand, and are excited to bring this collection of street foods to Washington, DC.<br /><br />Inspired by the underground eateries around Bangkok’s night markets, Soi 38 features creative Thai street foods, hearty Thai favorites and a bar program featuring draft and bottled cocktails to DC’s West End neighborhood.<br /><br />The name Soi 38 is based on the iconic street food district and night market of the same name in Bangkok. As evening falls in Thailand, the Soi 38 night market transforms into a high energy, open-air food market crowded with stalls and rickety furniture where vendors dish out authentic Thai food favorites until the early-morning hours.

"We had a very good lunch. The food was delicious and the service was attentive but gave us space to talk. We were seated near the door, so I got a lot of cold air when someone came in or out, but that was the only compliant."

Owners Agie Ziotis and Christina Xenohristos invite you to get lost in a labyrinth of traditional Greek dishes with a twist. Submit to the Siren song of fresh flounder stuffed with spinach and feta cheese, or be thunderstruck by the Lamb Giouvetsi -- oven-baked and served over orzo in a red sauce. Then, wash down an a-meze-ing mix of appetizers with a glass of Kourtaki Retsina while listening to live Greek music on Thursday nights.

Step back in time to when going out for dinner meant something really special. Step into Wildfire, a steak and chophouse with the aura of a 1940's dinner club. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for an evening with friends or just the two of you. So order a martini, listen to the music and prepare your appetite for some of the most delicious American cuisine you'll find anywhere.

"I had the club sandwich and my guest had the burger. My club was very delicious and I was told that the burger was very good. The portions here are huge, so it made a nice lunch the next day. The service is good also. Copper is a good solid casual chain restaurant."

"Great beer list, and it's always hard to choose. I had the left hand milk stout. I wanted the grilled cheese and tomato soup but they didn't have it. I had the black bean burger which is fine but nothing special."
