"we always cherish our times at dish restaurant, and the new version dive did not disappoint! it's the same chef and owners Pollyanna and Chris, and we enjoyed seeing them all. The seafood was so fresh we felt like we were on a coast, and the options for meat eaters, steak, chicken lamb were perfect for our group. many things haven't changed like the personable service, the quality of ingredients, and the passion behind it, but the interior and concept are freshed up and well designed. we are planning two more epic dinners at dive before spring break is over!"

"Our server Makinzee was very attentive and informative about the menu options...she definitely steered us in the right direction! I loved the salmon entree....cooked to perfection...and wine paired perfectly (suggested by Makinzee).... the chocolate ganache cake was scrumptious!! We enjoyed the soothing aqua interior....goes well with the seafood theme. We are locals and will be back again!"

"The food was great, but the service was extremely slow. The bar was very crowded with folks who had obviously been there a while & the noise level made it hard to have a conversation if you were sitting adjacent to the bar, as we were. Prices are now higher than they were at Dish, which was disappointing, too. We had rolls ( $6 for 4), 2 entrees, 1 side dish and 1 cocktail and it was $70 before the tip."

"Decided to try Dive on a Friday night. The setting is nice but the food was mediocre at best. Started with the clam chowder – lots of potatoes almost no clams with the exception of the two clams in shells. There was so much butter on the chowder that it really detracted from the soup, granted a pad of butter to finish off the chowder is traditional but only a pad not a half stick. Someone should introduce the chef and staff to seasoning, every dish was bland, starting from the chowder, to the cioppino, to the shrimp and grits. The king crab in the cioppino was inedible, looked like it was freezer burned and then just disintegrated. To top it off the wine markup is simply ridiculous, some of the wines are 4 times retail. Spend your money at many of the better establishments in the valley."
"This was our second time to dive (formerly dish) and it was spectacular! Sit at the end of the bar with Scott or John, and they will treat you amazing. We had 24 oysters which were briny fresh, and described perfectly by Scott. Next was the saltcod brandade, which was perfect and so nice for a chilly night, followed by the crab louie which was blugging with crab. The highlights of our mains where the dayboat scallops with a farro risooto and spring peas and shrimp n'grits..so good. We finished with macaroons and had two great bottles of burgundy! Well done! well done!"

"We've never been fans of the ambiance at this location, but we decided to give this a try in its new iteration, since it's not far from where we live. We were disappointed. My scallops were mediocre. The opah was fair. My husband liked the brussels sprouts, but I thought they were too sweet. The beet and potato gratin was delicious and different. The waiter didn't seem like he really wanted to be there and was not knowledgable about the wines. Probably won't go back. Hooked in Beaver Creek is way better if you're looking for a fish restaurant."
"We stumbled upon dive through Open Table and glad we did! Very well conceived and executed culinary concept and a wonderful alternative to the more chic restaurants in Vail.
Dive does seafood very well offering a truly unique menu - tough to choose. We went with the beet salad, fritto misto and opah. Every dish was perfectly prepared.
The menu and wine list is innovative and a bit different from the norm. What was especially notable was the detailed knowledge of our waitress on both the food and wine. Nice selection of beers, as well, carefully selected to pair up with the predominantly seafood menu.
Had the chance to meet restaurant operators Pollyanna and Chris who clearly are putting passion into their new endeavor.
The restaurant is in a small shopping complex in the heard of Edwards, just 10 minutes from Beaver Creek and maybe 15-20 from Vail. Well worth the trip. It's upstairs with huge west facing windows that offer a nice sunset view.
While I'm in the area on business, somehow we missed its predecessor Dish over the years. Glad we found dive. We'll for sure put it on our list for future visits."

"We loved Dish and miss it tremendously. This was our first time at the new restaurant. I had made reservations and a note that we were celebrating a birthday. Service was a little slow. Food was very good. They had some items that were not available, which was disappointing as it was two days before christmas. We were disappointed that there was no recognition of the birthday."
"The former restaurant, Dish, was one of our favorites in the valley. The food was always outstanding. We are very disappointed in the menu at Dive - the selections and the presentations are simply not as good as they were. Sorry to say that we have crossed Dive off our list, and do not plan to return. Bring back Dish, please."
"Loved the re-invention of the former "Dish", food consisted of updated interpretations of old seafood classics and new delights. We are adventurous eaters and love to go to a restaurant where you can sample a wine from Macedonia and have the chef send you his complimentary experiments from the kitchen."

"The food was awful. I haven't said that for years. I'm not sure what the problem was but I could only eat the raw fish. Everything we ordered that was cooked was full of salt. I was a fan of the previous restaurant - Dish - where the food was generally really good. I would not go back here."
"Ambiance is maybe a little brighter and more nautical decor than the previous restaurant. The oysters were very good, crabcakes good, the dessert was sublime. The entrees are a little pricey for the actual taste and presentation, and the wines by the glass were extremely limited unless you really like chardonnay. I think it would be a good spot to hit up for a drink and oysters followed by dessert."
