Alpenglow Stube Ratings and Reviews
We enjoyed Sunday brunch here. Superb experience especially for those who don't ski or haven't been on the mountain. The ride on the gondola is a unique experience and a lot of fun. The restaurant has a great charm to it and the buffet was fantastic. Lots of fresh seafood and delicious crab claws. The lamb shank hash was delicious. The dessert spread was scrumptious, especially the apple pie and the flourless chocolate tart. Highly recommended for brunch. A special thanks to Sam our server who took great care of us.
It was an amazing experience. My five friends and I were in Colorado for Spring Break and chose this spot as a celebratory dinner for our trip. We were treated like queens and had an amazing time getting dressed up for the night and having amazing food with an amazing experience.
Food and service were top notch. Sommelier made a great recommendation for a value priced wine - did not try to oversell once he know our price point. Very nice atmosphere, good noise level and music can be heard. A number of seats near the far wall have a less than stellar view down a back hallway into the back room of the kitchen where there is no door or it is always open.
This is a one of a kind experience at the top of Keystone Mountain. The two
gondola rides there make it a mystery ride at night. but when you finally arrive,
WOW! You trade your shoes for cozy warm slippers, have a cocktail at the
intimate bar, then sit down to an award winning dinner prepared by great
chefs. The menu variety includes beef, fish duck, lamb, etc., all prepared
perfectly and hot when it arrives at the table. The staff was friendly and
helpful with food and drink choices. It isn't cheap, but it is worth every cent
and then some. I highly recommend for a quiet, romantic evening that is
a complete dining and sensual experience.
Always a memorable experience. The setting, the food. We went for Sunday brunch in Feb, right off the ski slope. Great way to enjoy a lovely meal and warm cocktail in a unique setting.Views of the Summit County peaks all around. Felt like we were in Europe, always does! The brunch buffet is PLENTIFUL. Cheeses, salads, shrimp, oysters as big and full as your fist! Dessert area was impeccable too; tarts, cheesecake, flourless torte, apple streudel. Pace yourself if you go for the entree in addition.
Simply amazing. Went for brunch after a long morning of skiing, and we had a blast. Started with amazing cocktails at the bar, followed by a creative menu and buffet. They have an amazing wine list. Plus, the plush slippers that they give you in place of your ski boots are divine. If you are at Keystone, and want a fancier, sit down, comfortable lunch, this is the place to be. If you are not a skier/snowboarder, you can still access the restaurant via 2 gondola's which makes the experience even better.
This was our second time at the Alpenglow Stube. Our family had a lovely experience. Our waiter was great and the food was incredible. We had very high expectations given our first experience ~10 years ago, the Alpenglow Stube exceeded our expectations yet again.
We were there for dinner on Valentines day with our two grandsons. We did enjoy the rides on the gondolas to reach the restaurant.
I was not impressed by the food. I ordered the sea bass and all I could taste was the oil it was sauteed in, and I believe it was frozen fish.
We will not be back.
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
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.
