I had been wanting to try this restaurant since we came to Crested Butte to visit last year. We finally got our chance and though we were sat relatively quickly, we had to wait for over 15 minutes for our waiter to get to the...More

Generally I am not a fan of Colorado resort town restaurants, and you'll rarely see me review one. It's not that they are terrible; it's just that they are often overpriced and only as good as they absolutely have to be to stay in business...More

Not as huge a draw as the fancy pizza place down the street, but the service was top notch, the drinks were perfectly made, the salads a perfect beginning, and the mains well appointed. A solid choice.

In a town best known for mediocre pizza family places and overpriced fine-dining, Bacchanale is a real find. The restaurant's been there in one form or another for about 30 years but changed management a few years ago and have gone to a fixed price...More

Our waitress opened the wine, but never poured it, failed to bring us silverware, cleared our plates before we were done, and stared at us as we ate from across the room. A waiter (eating at a nearby table) spent the entire evening discussing how...More

This was our second experience here. The menu was more limited than last year with a prix fixe menu. However, the food is very good and pretty authentic.

Excellent food. They offer a fixed-price menu for $25, which includes an entrée, appetizer or salad, and dessert. The portions are large - plenty of leftovers for another meal! The menu is small but diverse. I had the bucatini pasta with a walnut/basil pesto, roasted...More

We had a very good dinner. The server combined the laid back CB vibe with good advice and food knowledge. Not cheap but a fair value.

The all-new Bacchanale is a modest Italian restaurant from the team that launched django’s restaurant at the base of Mt. Crested Butte in 2008. Our fresh and light menu will re-introduce you to simple flavors, colorful salads, artisan flatbreads and handmade specialties. Our comfortable atmosphere will entice you to come every day. Join us nightly for dinner from 5-10pm, and pick your favorite spot: at the bar, the community tables, along the banquette benches, in our private dining rooms, or on the balcony overlooking it all. During the summer, bistro seating on Elk Avenue let's you watch the action, enjoy the sunshine and surf the web, all while enjoying a Campari & soda. At 7am every morning, we're up again to serve you organic coffee, fresh house-made pastries, and specialty breakfast items.
