An experience to remember
The restaurant has considered every detail to make the evening rememberable. Cocoa or Bailey's for the gindola ride up, an amazing view of the mountain while dining, an attentive, friendly and knowledgeable wait staff, and of course the food was outstanding - fresh, innovative, well seasoned entrees. Wine pairings are a nice treat if you are able to afford it.
Small portions and VERY expensive
There is probably not a better view to any restaurant around. At the top of Jackson hole. But the portion size for a bowl of soup that is not even a four ounce ladle is just wrong. After everyone ordered an appetizer and a main course, they were still hungry. That should just not happen. With the prices that they charge and I realize its at the top of the mountain, you can make the portion size a little bigger.
Great way to end an epic ski trip!
Fantastic restaurant! Can't beat the views and the food was exceptional. The portions weren't large but my companion and I were both completely full by the end of the fixed menu. We also did the wine pairing and the pairings were both unique and exceptional!
Great experience - couple shortcomings.
Overall a great experience. The ambiance was lacking and the lighting was too bright - including cheap track lighting with spot lights killing the vibe. There were some waiters that were giving people the royal treatment - Sauternes with the foie gras, cookies for the gondola ride back, etc. - but I had to remind out waiter of these perks. A bit expensive, but nothing too crazy.
An Outstanding Experience
Poised on top of a hill (reachable via ski gondola), with the town of Jackson and the mountain range in view, Coloir provides one of the most unique and amazing fine dining experiences anywhere. They have a full menu and impressive wine list, but I would encourage anyone to try the 4 or 7 course tasting menu with wine pairing. The food was phenomenal and the wine pairings - with inclusions from Alsace, Austria, Tuscany, Loire Valley and Burgundy - were extremely well done. The service was outstanding, and each course was presented along with a detailed explanation from the sommelier regarding the wine. If you are a foodie and like the view from the top of an 8,000 foot peak while dining, you will love Coloir.
Beautiful views, fantastic food
Couloir is perfect for a special occasion or treat for those who enjoy fine dining. The experience starts by riding the gondola; arrive before dark to get the best views. Have a drink at the bar while waiting for your table and stare out the huge windows at the Tetons.
We got the 4 course tasting menu with wine pairings. All the staff we met explained the courses and wines to us. It was delicious. Then we rode the gondola down with night views of the valley. Great experience.
Scenic view and menu
We spent President's week with our family staying at Teton Village on a ski vacation. On Friday we gathered a group of 9 to meet for a 12:15pm reservation at Coulier. The restaurant is located at the top of the gondola, so if you are not skiing and have a reservation for lunch, you have to purchase a $20 scenic pass just to take the gondola up to the restaurant. I was unaware of the charge so that took me by surprise. When making a reservation via Internet or phone that specific detail should have been included. The location of the restaurant offers a stunning view of the landscape with floor to ceiling windows in the main room of the restaurant. Upon arrival, our table was originally located in the back of the restaurant which offered only limited views, however I only had to request a change of table and the manager swiftly arranged another table in the main room. The menu was somewhat limited but the selection provided many favorable choices for lunch including short ribs, cheese board, seared tuna and also offered a children's menu. Overall a wonderful experience.
The service and view were great. The foo ...
The service and view were great. The food was way overpriced and sub-par. They made us pick a 4 or 7 course option. This wasn't stated on the menu when we selected this restaurant. Combined with a bottle of wine it was over $300 for the 2 of us. Several of the courses were so greasy we couldn't even finish them. I would absolutely not recommend this restaurant. There are plenty of other much better options in the village.
Glorious views on a clear day
Seven minute gondola ride to the top. Portions were perfect in terms of being satisfied without being stuffed although we heard a few people in the gondola complain about the portions being small for the price. Quality of the food was excellent. Preparations were unusual but not so unusual that we felt out of our comfort zone. We happened to be there the day a huge storm literally shut down the mountain but the staff were reassuring - and told us we had time for dessert before we had to head down the mountain. We went up in the gondola again the next day and ate at Piste - a more casual eatery that was also very good.

This actually would be a 4 1/2 stars review, if I could mark 1/2 stars.
We had a great evening at Couloir. We ordered their 5-course Valentine's dinner with wine pairings.
We don't go out to eat much because we cook really good food at home. So when we go out, we search for food that's so delicious it makes you linger over each bite. Some of Couloir's dishes were real standouts: the oysters starter, the fois gras, the fennel salad, and the walu main. The wine pairings, for the most part, were fantastic.
Service was excellent. An added benefit was sitting at a window table and watching the groomers work in a blizzard all through dinner. The ride up the gondola to dinner is festive with the blanket, hot chocolate and whiskey, but it would have been even better if we'd had a blanket for the ride down, too.
Highly recommended; though expensive, it was well worth it, especially for a special occasion.
The only thing finer than the food is that view.
Hard to believe you can find food this good 10,000 feet above sea level in the middle of nowhere. Check the weather forecast, then book a table when the sun is going to be shining. If it's foggy, your plate will still look spectacular, but you'll miss out on the incredible view out the window.
Not what it used to be.
I've been eating here a few times a years for several years, and the recent menu change was very disappointing. The menu seemed more geared for dinner and not lunch. What we ordered was still very good, and the service was great, but I don't think the food was worth the price. The waitress told me the menu was changed to make it more upscale and to "protect their brand". She said the restaurant was too busy in seasons past and the changes would help with the traffic. Well, they succeeded because at 12:30 on one of the busiest weekends of the year, the restaurant was half full.
I'm heading back up for Spring break, and we will not be heading back to Couloir.
Great on-mountain gourmet dining with spectacular views (inside Rendezvous @ the top of the gondola), great service (Katie's the best!), and excellent food. Squash soup and pear galette are standouts, but everything we had on 2 trips (lunches) was very good. No good champagne by the glass, but 1/2 bottles of Veuve.
INCREDIBLE All Around
The experience we had at Couloir was extraordinary, starting with the gondola ride up to the restaurant. We were offered a blanket as well as a beverage for the ride - hot chocolate, Baileys, or Irish whiskey. Once we arrived to the restaurant, everyone was extremely welcoming and they kindly hung our coats, then seated at our corner table. As far as dinner, we chose a 4-course dinner and a bottle of wine (vs. the pairings) - that meant choosing one dish from the three sections of the menu and then a dessert. Both my husband and I thought it was enough food, for sure. They start each table with an amuse-bouche which was delicious and another yummy light "soup" in between our first and second courses. Every single one of our courses was not just beautiful in its presentation, they were full of many amazing flavors which blended extremely well. Truly incredible and delicious. The wine list was great - we did not have a problem finding a really yummy bottle of Shiraz (Torbreck) to go with the varying flavors. Our waiter, Phil, was really fabulous and so personable, which we appreciated. Ben, the manager, was walking around from table to table, making sure everything was ok and just having a chat. Wes Hamilton, the Executive Chef, was also visible around the restaurant and stopped by our table - he was extremely down to earth and very humble - really, really impressive.
Dinner was outsranding. Fois Gras was amazing, shades of Strasburg. Service was hampered by a large party with excessive demands on kitchen. All 7 courses were excellent and management more then attentive to the issues caused by large party. 3rd visit and worth any accommodation.
An Incredible Experience
Chef Wes Hamilton and the entire Couloir team are incredible. The Chef's Table was absolutely one of the best and most fun dining experiences of our lives and something we would recommend to anyone. If you come to Jackson Hole, you must eat at Couloir. We will be back every year.
unfortunately it was snowing and the view wasn't what we hoped for but the food and service was amazing. We dined at several local favorites in Jackson but this place was by far our favorite! We made our reservation in advance and I would recommend making a reservation if you are planning on having dinner especial on the weekend but the lunch menu was delicious
DIning at the top
Couloir had a very interesting and unique menu that made the experience very pleasant. The four course menu was more than enough food for all. Service was impeccable with a courteous and attentive staff. The wine list was light and there is no corkage, perhaps this is something they might consider.
Everything about our dinner was AMAZING!
Our waiter, Phil, was very knowledgeable and friendly.
The food was world class and presented beautifully.
We have eaten at several fine dinning establishments in Jackson Hole and this restaurant is by far the best we have experienced!
We are very happy with choosing Couloir for our anniversary.
Another great season for dining!
Once again, Couloir's menu for this season hits all the high points! We went opening night and it did not disappoint. If the ambiance and view weren't enough to take your breath away, just wait until you take your first bite! If you're in town for a visit, do NOT miss a chance to dine here.
A must dinner spot!
We had to go here our first night in town, because they close for a short time in the fall. So glad we did. Beautiful ride up the mountain and then down at sunset. The food flavors were indescribably good! I will be bringing my friends and family back!
As a local I am used to the view and the Gondola, but I continue to be impressed by the staff and the food meets or beats all the other well know restaurants in the valley. That is not an easy statement when the completion includes Four Seasons, Amangani and SRG! But quite simply Couloir does a truly amazing job. Kudos guys!
A gondola to dinner
First time probably the last I will ever go to dinner via a gondola. Views were epic as you would expect. Dining room very comfortable. Waiter great. Food fantastic! We all like to share our food and it was all wonderful. Portions perfect. Presentation perfect. The wine was all great. Cannot say enough about this dining experience.
