The legendary restaurant is for the food and wine aficionado. Blending contemporary American cuisine with one of the best wine selections anywhere, the Palace Arms consistently rates among the finest restaurants in Denver. Signature items such as a caesar salad prepared table side, seared steak of Colorado bison, combined with many other creative contemporary or traditional dishes. The "New" Palace Arms provides a casual dress code where jackets are not required.

The goal at Bistro C.V. is to celebrate and showcase the freshest ingredients of the season. We love the region we live in and pride ourselves on supporting our local and organic farmers. 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.

<p>Over the years, The Ahwahnee Dining Room has played host to presidents, royalty and celebrities, in addition to countless visitors, and it continues to be regarded as one of the most impressive dining rooms in the United States.</p> <br /><p>The Ahwahnee Dining Room conveys a feeling of elegance and refinement while maintaining a comfortable, natural atmosphere. The logs of stripped and polished sugar pine, which support the 34-foot-high beamed ceilings, reinforce the rustic ambiance that is reflective of The Ahwahnee’s mountain surroundings. Wrought iron candelabras suspended from the sugar pine timbers, together with iron candelabras on the tables, create a medieval atmosphere.</p> <br />Under the culinary leadership of Executive Chef Percy Whatley, The Ahwahnee Dining Room offers traditional California cuisine for breakfast and dinner daily. An array of excellent California wines are also featured on the menu.

It's Italia opened in 1997 as a San Francisco style trattoria and pizzeria serving gourmet pizzas, house pastas, and creative salads, always with a California Italian flavor, and a wine list of 10-12 varietals. Ten years later, our menu has expanded to include steak and seafood grilled specialties, artful antipasti, and a decadent array of housemade desserts from our pastry chef. Over 120 bottles line up on our wine list from Italy, California, France, Spain, Australia, and New Zealand. As always, we have remained faithful to a local coastal California Italian cuisine, with its cosmopolitan nature, bringing produce and cheeses from local farms, meats and poultry from quality and organic growers, and seafood from a variety of waters. Most importantly, we are a little local community restaurant that serves locals. Lots of locals! Our advertising is mostly word of mouth. Our energy is inviting, positive, and friendly, and when you come in, you are invited to be part of our family.

The restaurant is focusing on an Ocean Cuisine menu and the new California contemporary design that creates a comfortable relaxed atmosphere.<br /><br />At the new Navio, guests can embark on a seaside culinary journey that highlights the purest flavors of the Pacific at Navio. Focusing on fresh seafood with an approachable Mediterranean flavor, Navio showcases the best of Half Moon Bay, with coastal cuisine that’s prepared authentically and sourced from Pacific waters and local farms. Blending refined flavors with a vibe that’s natural and comfortable, Navio leaves the city behind, favoring edge-of-the-sea views and a design that’s purely California. Savor a taste of the sea at its most authentic and bathe in the aromas from the restaurant’s smoky, wood-fire oven. Here, you’ll find only the region’s freshest ocean cuisine.

"The food was good NOT great...expected more from a 4 star restaurant! Portions were on the smaller side and selection for appetizers were limited. The scallops were gritty, the creme brulee wasn't quite set. Took forever to get the desserts and the check. The view was the BEST part of dinner!!!"
