Mountain View Restaurant at Cheyenne Mountain Resort Ratings and Reviews
Convenient being connected to the hotel lobby. The service was terrific and they did everything they could to make our night enjoyable. High prices for quality of food. Steak was thick and tasty, and lobster tail was tiny and lacked flavor. There was a problem with the cooking of the first lobster tail but the management was very apologetic, brought a second one out and gave us a discount as well. Should have known better than to order seafood. Appetizers were very tasty but WAY overpriced for what you received. My wife thought the dining was romantic and loved the Mountain view of lights. If I had to make the same choice again though, I would try something elsewhere.
We ate here on Christmas Eve. While I was impressed by the variety of foods on the buffet, it was a little challenging for the vegetarian in our party. I also thought the price was a little high. The dining room was quite noisy, and we waited for about 20 minutes, in spite of our reservation.
For 50$ a person I expected a lot more. Granted the spread was diverse but the main courses left much to be desired . Try the chicken, it was awful. The fish was okay. Pork roast with gravy and prime rib were great. The potatoes sounded good but were tasteless. I think the price could def be lowered considering the options.
My first time here and doubt I will return for that price.
Ambience was nice.
Waiter was strange, he seemed uptight and his customer service was subpar... he seemed like he was thinking of something else.
The lady however was friendly and very helpful!
The servers and everyone at the resort were lovely. We opted for the Sat night buffet because on the website it sounded delicious and grand (we expected Las Vegas type buffet for $36/person) and we had already made reservations.
We did a once over and the prices were not much different a la carte versus buffet and by this time we didn't want to drive somewhere else (and we had reservations) so we stayed.
Very underwhelming. The food was ok, but not worth the price tag. Everything was just bland. Best part was the dessert table and the cheese tray.
It's a pity because we were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary.
Excellent food on the buffet.. just not a lot of choices. Seafood entree. One beef entree with lots of spices. A dark/white meat chicken entree. Not many vegetables. Very Good ... but few choices for the price. Very personable service ... the outdoor table and amazing view of Cheyenne Mountain made for a great night. Not a Foodie place -- at least not the Buffet night on Sunday.
Unfortunately I was not expecting much when my wife suggested meeting here for a Birthday brunch and I was not disappointed. Unless a restaurant really cares about brunch it is a waste of calories, a buffet doubly so. Since the Broncos were playing the place was pretty quiet and service was attentive without smothering. The food, in a word, sucked. The bagels were dry, the fish (Salmon Oscar and trout) were dry, the shrimp were old (off tasting). The prime rib was not allowed to rest before carving as I literally watched all the juice and color escape my piece before I got back to our table. For $50 a head this was unacceptable and had there been anyone who appeared to be in charge working I would have said something. At best this might do in a pinch for $30 if you are desperate on Mom's day. Perhaps when they are busy they can pay attention to the food.
Good overall experience, but I'll look for a different time slot for future visits. Apparently the 8:30 am timeslot is at the end of the breakfast buffet on the weekends, so the service was a bit off and we felt pressured to eat quickly (and depart). Not ideal for a birthday celebration, nor was it up to previous experiences at the restaurant.
The staff great you with smiles and enthusiasm. The service is prompt, courteous even with brisk business and full tables. The variety of food is always fresh, not over cooked, and the buffet bins kept full. Dining at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort makes the special occasion even more special and the view is stunning.
Extremely disappointing as this is NOT a destination restaurant for a quiet romantic dinner. Given it is a country club with a magnificent view of the mountains. But that is what it should claim. I should have read (and believed) the online reviews. The only food on offer was a slightly above average quality buffet. Yet, looking at the website you expect a choice between an a'la carte menu and a buffet which apparently is different depending on the day. The choice of wine is positively dreadful. Overall this was a very disappointing experience and I would hesitate to recommend to anyone. Also, please teach your waiters to pour wine properly - not slop a full glass of white wine, which needs to be kept chilled, poured with care and in small amounts, into the glass like you would tap water.
I have heard that the Sunday brunch is good value but I doubt I will ever risk a return visit!
Talk about a disappointment. We have eaten here several times in the past, Friday night seafood buffet, and enjoyed it. We made reservations for Friday July 8, 2016. Open table shows Friday night seafood buffet under menus. We arrived no walked to our table, and commented how empty it was for a Friday night. We then proceeded to the buffet area and that's when we realized this was not a seafood buffet, but rather "Italian food". The choices were so limited. I ended up paying 34.00 for 2 pieces of pizza and some Swiss cheese. My husband got some pasta. We were not expecting this, as the menu on open table still said seafood. Having been looking forward to seafood, this was no comparison. Red lobster is where we would have went had we known the menu changed here. We were so disappointed in the menu change, any good points about this evening were gone. Even our window view got lost in the menu. We won't be back next will not recommend. We have friends who eat there often as well, and are going to pass this info to them.
This is our second time here. This was a special graduation time and absolutely loved the service. The food was excellent in every regard and in the atmosphere was superb. We've already recommended this place to several friends and associations. It's a great place!
was not worth the price tag. this restaurant has a view and thats what you are paying for...$45.00ish each for a seafood diner where u only have maybe four seafood options poor. it would be cheaper to go to red lobster....your paying for the view not the food. service was great...otherwise we wouldve left early. this restaurant was recommended by an employee, should have researched first. will not be recommending restaurant based on food...not even worth going back.
Couldn't have made Mother's Day any more special. Food was exceptional with a great buffet variety. Benjamin our server was very attentive ensure used plates were cleared and quick to replace any silverware that was missing. Drinks never got more than a 1/2 empty before he was there filling it up.
Ambiance and views were breathtaking. We are coming back to spend a weekend there, even though it is only 20 miles from the house. Rustic setting in the foothills of the Rockies. Can't get much better than that.
Cost of the buffet isn't for the faint of heart or budget conscious, but definitely worth it.
The buffet on Saturday night was lacking. We came the evening before Mother's Day avoiding the rush, but apparently avoiding the good food also. The buffet food was overcooked and not appetizing. Even though I had called ahead to find out if there were options for gluten free people (and been assured that there were lots of options), there were minimal options at best. Basically all I could eat was salad (with questionable dressing), fish and rice. There was no dessert that was gluten free except plain vanilla ice cream. Neither soup was gluten free and there were not even gluten free crackers. When I asked our waiter for some gluten free bread he offered to get some from the kitchen and toast it. He returned with untoasted (untasty) bread. The cost of $32 was definitely not worth it. Our sever started out well (though he completely ignored the table next to us until they were ready to get up and leave), but then basically disappeared due to a complaint at the next table requiring the manager. We had to physically hunt our waiter down for the check only to be informed that gratuity had already been added much in excess of what I would tip for poor service and a lousy buffet. If it were not for the spectacular view, the evening would have been a total bust. Very disappointed.
We had brunch here the Sunday before Mother's Day and it was perfect! We had never been but all 9 people in our party agreed that this is where we will be doing brunches in the future. They were on time, we were not squished in, the service was great, and the selection from the buffet was awesome. Highly recommend!
The prime rib was tasteless, they only cut a this little piece, the au jus was tasteless. The crab was slimey, the vegetables were raw, shrimp tasted frost bitten, pork was shriveled. The deserts were o.k. the canolies tasted old. The brunch buffet was not much better. Slimey fish, shriveled left over pork and the same tasteless prime rib. The eggs Benedict yolk was completely cooked and just a dollop of hollandaise sauce. The only part that was good was the cooked to order omelette and the waffle.
We tried the prime rib and seafood buffet on Friday April 9th. There wasn't a ton of variety for the seafood, but the mainstays (shrimp and crablakes) were plentiful and tasted good. The prime rib was very good, as were the desserts.
We waited several minutes longer than I would have expected for a server once we were seated, and when the server did show, he told us about what was in the buffet, describing the salmon wellington as "it's pretty good I guess". In hindsight, his lackluster description was pretty accurate, as it wasn't bad, I guess.
The place looked amazing, and the view really is incredible, but the food, although it was pretty decent, was probably not $50 decent, and the service in general was just a bit lacking and more inattentive than I was hoping for. Not bad, but it felt like the place was being served by the people who weren't quite at a Broodmoor level yet.
The restaurant was very quiet. There were only a few diners there that evening. The girl at the front hosting desk was super nice. She was inviting and even offered to make us a reservation for the morning breakfast or brunch. She was very friendly which was refreshing. Our waitress Susan was very sweet also. She was very attentive with our needs. She was spot on with refills. The food was delicious. My only critique is the cheese and crackers and bread were stale. They had been sitting since the dinner buffet started. The cheese was sweating and glossy and the bread was hard. I expected that these things would be changed out so often if not.
We had the option of getting the seafood buffet and everything was great! Our kids have a lot of food allergies and the staff was very accommodating. Ordered them a filet mignon which was delicious! Our waiter was especially attentive to the special needs of our family. Can't wait to go back!!
We usually dine here once per year. We have always enjoyed the Friday night buffet. On this last visit, we did notice some changes. No oysters or clams/mussels and the price had increased. Overall still great food and experience. The prime rib and crab legs were delicious as well as the chocolate bread pudding!
This restaurant is spoiled by being the ONLY restaurant on the property. It's like they feel as if they can get away with serving sub par resort cuisine for an exorbanant amount of money. Dry food, poor selection, terrible quality of food. Do yourself a favor and drive down the road to get a meal where the people actually act like they want to earn your business.
