This is an old-fashioned American version of meat-sauce Italian pasta. I've had better and I've had worse. Service was good. Vegetarian options seemed limited and heavy like four cheese alfredo. It was busy on a Monday night in the off-season and several tables were celebrating birthdays or anniversaries so it must be a well-liked place.

Glad you were well taken care of, Deborah! The food should always be on par with the service, so it's disappointing to hear you felt let down. We certainly want you to feel like you can't go wrong with our menu, and we'll keep your feedback regarding the vegetarian options in mind going forward. I hope we'll get the chance... More

Eight of us had a wonderful meal at the Dunraven. Service was efficient and friendly and the food was delicious! If I lived here I'd be there at least once a week. Ambience is cozy and welcoming and it was a 5 star experience.

We called ahead to get a reservation since we did not want a postage stamp table, against the wall like we got the last time we ate at the Dunraven. We even mentioned that we wanted a nice table to help celebrate our anniversary. Guess what type of table we got.......a postage stamp table up against the wall. We were... More

The last thing we would want is for you to feel let down on your anniversary, Peggy. Making special occasions like this memorable for all the right reasons is something we always aim for, and we're so sorry that wasn't made more clear to you. It sounds like some wires must have gotten crossed regarding your table, and I sincerely... More

This appears to be an iconic restaurant in Estes Park but the food and service was only average. While the menu was broad, we thought the food was merely okay and the atmosphere "busy."

Just visited with a large group for a wedding rehearsal dinner. Although we had to wait a bit to be seated, the staff was wonderful and handled the group with ease. Everyone enjoyed their entree, including fish, chicken and beef dishes.

We ate here our first night in Estes Park and enjoyed it so much we went back the next night. We had trout the first night and haddock the second. The trout, cooked in a parchment paper, was our definite favorite. Service was excellent as was the ambiance.
