Alpenglow Stube Ratings and Reviews

My potato leek soup was outstanding. My encrusted chicken was quite delicious. Unfortunately, the cheese cake was not to my liking. My friend ordered the shrimp appetizer and the presentation was wonderful but her 2 shrimp were soft and mushy. Her flank steak was done to perfection. She too felt the cheese cake was gelatinous.

The Alpenglow continues to be an outstanding restaurant at the highest point in Colorado. The 2 gondola ride to the restaurant paired with the great food and service is definitely worth the price. We take advantage of this restaurant every time we visit Keystone in Colorado. My lobster appetizer was beyond compare and I spoke with the Chef about its preparation and he provided me with his recipe.

My husband and I made reservations for lunch. This was our first time at this restaurant and had high expectations after reading the reviews. It's nice that the gondola rides are complimentary with reservations, which would otherwise be $30/pp without reservations. The scenery on the gondolas was beautiful. When we got to the restaurant, the hostess wasn't very warm or inviting. However, our server was very friendly and attentive. We chose to get the 3 course lunch. For the appetizer, we got the chili with the jalapeño cheddar corn bread. It was delicious! We had the burger for the entree and the bun was SO dry that we couldn't eat it. The portions were large so we asked to get our desserts, cheesecake, to go. We ate this later at our hotel but it was also very disappointing as it wasn't even traditional cheesecake. It was a blob of white chocolate on the bottom, chunks of cream cheese and graham cracker dust all over. It looked awful and didn't taste any better. We spent $100 for both of us, including the tip. Unfortunately, this restaurant was definitely not 4 diamond quality and we were very disappointed with our overall experience. For the price, we did not get what we paid for and will not be going back.
Positives: Service, chili appetizer, gondola ride, food portions, atmosphere
Negatives: Overall quality of the food- burger entree and cheesecake dessert, value/price

Custom menu every night form award winning chefs. Seven course meal changes nightly supplemented by amazing Ala-Carte options. Perfect for special occasions! Dining experience begins and ends with romantic gondola ride to the top of the mountain.

I visit keystone every year for vacation and love Alpenglow stube. This year I took my life long friends and had a great time with good food wine and laughs. I have made it a staple. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone!

Exceptional service and overall great tasting food. The food was great but lacked temperature it seemed rather cold we had a party of 10 and every plate was cold it seemed like they sat for a while before being brought to the table. Other than that the service was great and the taste of the food was great .

It's is a gorgeous restaurant high in the Mountains. Food was very good, but the service could have been better. The hostess was the absolute best and I wish we had her for our server. It's definitely a trek, but it's definitely a bucket list item. The available wines and creative drinks were inspiring and welcome.

It is a unique setting to have a fine restaurant at 1,140 ft elevation and only reachable by 2 cold gondola rides. They gave us warm blankets which helped a lot. They offer slippers for those who arrive in boots ( most do).

The gondola ride up and down the mountain is almost worth the price. However, was very disappointed with the lunch. The chicken was bland and dry and the waiter did not refill our water glasses until halfway through the main course. We were celebrating my dad's birthday and all they could do was stick us as far away from the windows as possible and brought out a candle melted onto a plate for my dad to blow out. Not what I expected for that caliber of restaurant.

We loved the view from the Gondola at sunset as we rode up to the restaurant and the blankets were appreciated because it was quite cold. The ambiance was cozy and comfortable plus the slippers were a nice touch for relaxation. Our group was 4 persons so regretfully we could not sit near the fireplace since all the nearby tables were for parties of only 2. The wine list was fantastic and we all enjoyed our meals. Our wait staff was excellent and we were impressed with the personalized souvenir in our menus. We hope to visit again soon!

Even with a res and tables open we were made to wait to be seated. We soon learned why. Once we were seated I had to ask for a waiter to be sent to our table. The hot buttered rum I ordered was Luke warm? We were plied with bread baskets while waited for our food. The entrees took over an hour to come out. The appetizer, entree and dessert servings were small. The carrot cake was dry and tasteless. The NY cheesecake looked like it had been dropped on the floor. We received a generous discount on our meal as a result of all this.

We have been coming here the last three years usually for lunch or brunch. We came here for lunch twice while skiing at Keystone. The food was excellent, but the service has slipped. They are short on staff. On the second day our lunch took almost two hours. This would be fine if we were not skiing. The staff they have are excellent. We had Vince and Andrew as our waiters. They need to find more staff. Two hours is too long.

We have dined at the highest elevation 4 star restaurant Alpenglow Stube several times while on numerous ski vacations in Keystone, Colorado over the years. The menu is always superb and the ambiance is one of a kind dining after not one, but two gondola rides up to the top of the mountain. Our evening did not disappoint until 2 hours into our experience when our excellent waiter informed us that the prevailing winds had reached almost 50 mph and we could not ride down on the gondolas until subsiding. We were given a deck of cards and calmly waited with other dining room guests another hour until it was safe to depart. Somewhat nerve racking to say the least. Therefore, if the opportunity arises to dine at this outstanding restaurant, be sure to check the forecast because there is only one way up and one way down from the Alpenglow Stube! Enjoy!!

We were celebrating our 31 year anniversary with family and while we were dining the gondolas had to shut down due to high winds. Our waiter was fantastic at keeping us up to date and really if you want to be stranded somewhere I cannot think of a better place. We had comfy warm slippers on, had just eaten a fantastic meal, and a comforting fire was going in the fireplace. They made sure it was safe before we all were able to go back down and it was truly an experience I will always remember!!!!

Very cold commute to the restaurant via two gondola lifts. Dress very warm for the ride and recommend taking the lifts at sunset. Heavy coats and boots - the restaurant provides slippers at the coat chk after you arrive.
Ask the wait staff for their recommendation - they are right on with their suggestions for both food and wine.
After a short delay after seating the manager and staff were very gracious and provided champaign to make it up to us.
Overall a wonderful dinner and locale!

Wonderful mountaintop gourmet dining facility accessible by gondola only. The short but creative fixed-price menu offers a broad variety of appetizer, entree and dessert choices. With the cozy dining room, stunning location and attentive service, our meal at the Alpenglow Stube was the highlight of our quick foray to Keystone for a day's skiing.

It offers great ambiance at the top of the mountain requiring a gondola ride to get there. It is very warm, cozy and they provide slippers. The food is excellent; ordering from a set menu with six or seven courses or a la carte making your own choices. They were very attentive to our family, bringing out food early for our toddler. The food was presented beautifully. We have been several times, never disappointed.

We were here on Christmas Day and it was wonderful! The food and service was first class. The lifts stopped running due to weather and we ended up stranded for 4.5 hours. Our waiter, the manager and rest of the staff did a great job keeping up updated. They even got out games and offered complimentary drinks! I would highly recommend Aplenglow Stube.

My mom and I went there for Christmas Day Brunch and it was fantastic! Our server Andrew was very well informed, polished, and friendly. It was a very yummy meal and the service from everyone was great. If you have questions on the food the Chefs are available to ask questions to. It is well worth the trip up both of the gondolas to get to the restaurant. It is expensive but it is worth it for the level of food and experience you receive.
