We have been coming here for about 5 years on our weekly ski trip here. The food, service, and live music is always superb!! A special shout out to bartenders Kevin and Ryan as we sat at the bar this time, which we were lucky to get seats at because it's always packed. And we really enjoy coming on the... More

This was our third visit and we were again very pleased. Great variety in the menu and everyone in our party of 5 had a great meal. We will be back.

The food here is the BEST in Breckenridge. Every time we come to Breck we come here. The food is wonderful, the service even better. Love it! Make reservations in advance.

We were hopeful based on the menu but we're not impressed by the food. The Roberto pasta was super oily and pretty lacking on flavor, the seafood pasta was more like soup than pasta, and the wedge salad was not good. The bartender and drinks were good and service was good.

Had drinks her last night with Denise, a friendly bartender! My wife got the Espresso Martini and what a great drink it was! Very nuanced in its flavor, a little sweet but not sickly, perfect for an after dinner drink! Pear Ginger Mint is a wonderfully flavorful drink, with plenty of ginger to pep you up! Creme Brullee here is... More

Stopped here for lunch one day and was pleasantly surprised. Far better than your average soup and salad. I visited with a friend who's a local and the staff greeted us exceptionally warmly. The beetroot salad was exceptional and the soup of the day was a perfect winter warmer. Such a friendly atmosphere, especially at the bar (where we sat).... More

Consistently good food at this place. Happy Hour specials are good, but only in the bar which is normally packed. Many delicious and moderately priced pasta dishes are available. Live music is provided by a singer/guitarist which adds a nice touch.

Our family spent four nights in Breckenridge last week and we found Blue River Bistro while searching for something more upscale than the burger joints on Main Street. The restaurant was full and mostly reservation only but the hostess and manager did a great job finding a spot for my wife and two elementary school aged kids. The cocktails were... More
