Our favorite restaurant by far when we're in the area. The service is wonderful, the presentation superb. The food is beyond compare. The ride up to the restaurant is very romantic. Don't wait for a special occasion.......this is the special occasion.

Everything about this restaurant/experience was superb except that our waiter seemed to be very misleading when describing food portions. We felt the need to order at least three courses and he suggested four due to the individual sizes that they serve. However, when our food arrived, the portions were certainly not skimpy and we went away with far too full tummies and food left over. This is not the kind of restaurant I like to take left overs home from. (Gondola ride, bus ride, walk and then drive home )

Excellent food in great mountain setting. Our server was very knowledgeable, and worked with one of the members of our party who has serious food allergies. Kind, well-informed and efficient. We had a great time, and said we are going to try to get there more often.

Once again, we so enjoyed our evening meal at Alpenglo Stube. The gondola ride, the warm greeting, fire in the fireplace, wonderful, knowledgeable service by Chris, and the food were impeccable! The beautiful presentation of the food only enhanced the enjoyment of the taste of the food. We brought another couple with us who had never been to Alpenglo. They were just as pleased and impressed with the experience as we have always been. Thank you Alpenglo Stube. We will be back!

We were disappointed with the service and our food. The waitress forgot our salads, & they did not have the wine on the menu, additionally-our food was over cooked (dry). The dessert, chocolate mousse, was straight out of the refrigerator and not fresh at all. The prices were way expensive, for the level of quality.

It has been over ten years since the last time we had dinner at Alpenglow Stube and it was in the winter. This time we visited in Auguat and, of course, it was quite a different feel. Our waiter was more than congenial, very knowledgeable, and nicely attentive. Our teenage girls loved most of the food but, were a bit overwhelmed by a few of the more avant guarde items. My Dover Sole was just right, all of us thoroughly enjoyed our entrees. Coffee was an experience in flavor and luxury. All together it was a sweet evening.

Our group of 6 thoroughly enjoyed the food, service, setting and ambiance at Alpenglo Stube. My husband and I had been telling the other 2 couples about Alpenglo Stube for a few years. We were all finally able to go together and they were not disappointed! The ride up and down the mountain in the gondolas was a great experience. We all commented about the whole evening as being a complete package! We'll go back again as soon as we're in town!

The waiter and wine specialist push a poor bottle of wine on us and we felt uncomfortable sending it back. The waiter pushed us to order 5 courses saying they were small portions. He was totally wrong and we were full before our entree. The portions were large. 3 courses would have been tops. We felt like he lied to us to get a bigger bill. The money didn't bother us but we felt deceived.

Make an earlier reservation to enjoy the view. We had a 7:30 reservation in July and the sun set about 8:30 so only an hour to enjoy the spectacular view from the mountain top perch of this restaurant. Service and food was wonderful. They even had our name printed on the menu. Make sure you come hungry as the menu is set up for 4 course dining. He said the portions would be smaller as a result but ours were large to normal sized. The highlight were the entrees and desserts. We are coming back during ski season for sure.

While the ambience and service at this mountaintop restaurant are excellent, the quality of the food didn't match. For the price - and they were steep! - I expected innovative cooking and exceptional execution. The only seafood on the menu the night we dined was a scallop and seafood dish, which was overcooked and dry and missing the sauce that was supposed to crown the dish. The appetizer of blue crab and leek was the only dish we ordered that lived up to its reputation. Considering the trouble to get here - short walk through Keystone Village and two separate gondola rides - the food should have been much better!

We enjoyed a delicious meal in a beautiful atmosphere served by a charming staff. The vegan member of our party was pleased to have choices beyond a salad for dinner and was impressed with her entree. The gondola ride to the Alpenglow Stube provided beautiful views of the valley and the return ride was cozy with blankets provided to take the chill off. We will definitely return to this restaurant!

Don't miss this restaurant while in Summit County. Obviously a unique experience to dine at a high-end restaurant at 11,444 feet elevation. Incredibly, there are two someway better restaurants in Keystone, each with much to recommend it.

Great location, but I didn't think the food stood up to its reputation. I sent a salad back because it was super salty (still got charged) and ordered a 2012 wine, got a 2013 and still charged the same. The main course was very good (rack of lamb), but still just not sure it was as good as it wants to be.

Friends recommended the restaurant and since they are massive foodies and love good wine, we decided to check the place out. Every single minute of the whole dinner experience was just nothing but wonderful memories. The Gondola ride was romantic, fun and a wonderful experience; how many restaurants require you to take 2 gondola rides to get to it and then go back down on the 2 gondola rides again? Anyway, we started out with drinks and having a great time chatting with the ever so friendly and accommodating bartender, Mike (I hope i got his name right). He even helped get me bread to munch on because I was positively starving. Our server, Natalia was the best; recommended the Elk and Crab for our starters which were phenomenal and then the banana custard dessert, wow! And Brooks, the sommelier was just the best. He arranged the best table in the house for us (thank you so very much), and then recommended the best bottle (pretty pricey, but a very very good bottle). We went with his recommendation to definitely order the special chilean seabass fish main course and the lamb. All I have to say is...YUMMYLICIOUS! Oh, we will so definitely be back for sure. But only to celebrate a special occasion. This place is not cheap, but definitely worth every penny.

Had been to ski tip lodge for dining twice and it was best food experience of any restaurant I have eaten, so my expectation was high. 5 out of 6 in our party had the filet. It was wood grilled. The wood taste was so strong it overpowered the taste of the meat. Tasted more like pork than fillet. It you are looking for great food experience then go to Ski Tip Lodge instead.
I was very pleased with the service, the knowledge of the wait staff and the overall light hearted ambiance of the restaurant. For being such a nice place it's comforting to not stand out wearing snow pants and a t shirt. The food was excellent, almost everything I ate was something I'd never tried before. Very impressed. 10 out of 10, would do it again for sure.
love the slippers
I was disappointed by the food and service that day. The staff took in some walk ins. and that hurt our food and service. I hope to give it one more shot the next trip we go on, because i love the idea of stopping for a nice lunch and taking your boots off mid day to eat before hitting the slopes again.
Wonderful Anniversary Dinner!
We wanted to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary somewhere special while vacationing in Summit County. Read many reviews and decided on Alpenglow Stube. We had a fantastic experience - one to remember for many years. The gondola ride up to the restaurant was wonderful, even though our reservations were for 830, we still enjoyed some spectacular views. Wait staff was beyond excellent. We enjoyed every minute of our experience and would love to come back next time we're in the area. Thank you for making our anniversary special in many ways.
We were so thrilled to find such a special place for exquisite food and exceptional service. The breathtaking gondola ride that delivers you there escalates the entire experience. Our dinner was so great that we went back the very next day for brunch. We would highly recommend doing BOTH!
Worth Every Penny
Service was phenomenal! The food was amazing! The blue crab appetizer was my favorite! When making my reservation, I told them we were coming for my boyfriend’s birthday. All the staff wished him a happy birthday and they gave him a wood ornament to celebrate the occasion. On the gondola ride up and down from the mountain they provided blankets to keep warm, and at the top the restaurant offered slippers to keep our feet warm and cozy during our meal. Definitely worth the money for the overall experience!
Excellent Special Occasion Dinner
We were very impressed with Alpenglow Stube. For a mountain-top, fancy restaurant, the prices were very reasonable and frankly less than expected. The food was top notch and easily beat most other high-end restaurants i've had recently. The atmosphere was welcoming including nice touches with warmed sandals and a personalized menu with the party's name. It was an excellent experience for the Girlfriend and myself and I highly recommend it.
