We have eaten here before and been satisfied. This time we were a bit disappointed in the food and service. To be fair, it was very busy with the festival of lights parade, so I guess we should have just been grateful we got in. Hopefully they will be able to better gear up for these events, and be sure...

We were told the owner is vegan so we checked it out. The vegan options were delicious! They even had a vegan sausage!

Nothing really fantastic to report here. It was ok. People were nice. My husband left his credit card, and recovered it easily the day after.

My wife and I visited on a Saturday evening during the Estes off season. We had a reservation but certainly did not need it and we were even seated early. Portions were more than generous and prices were very reasonable. Great wine selection. Our server was fantastic, the host seemed to be having an off night. We shared the ricotta... More

What a wonderful atmosphere ! ! ! During the winter, you need to eat inside but if you are there Spring, Summer, Fall or a warm day in the winter, their outdoor seating is beyond words ~ Right next to the River Walk ~ The sound of the water is very special ! ! !

We ate at Mama Rose's for this first time this past weekend and it was magical! We were seated in a romantic spot right in front of the fireplace and received incredible service. And the food was magnificent! Delicious, fresh salad; warm, soft bread and mouth-watering homemade pasta with delectable meats and sauce!

Visited Estes Park on President Day, Sunday. For lunch we had shrimp scampi and risotto stuffed ravioli with heirloom tomatoes and an excellent Italian wine. This restaurant is situated near the river and Riverwalk so I recommend arriving early or make a reservation for a window seat. I can hardly wait to return in the summer and hopefully be seated...

We made reservations. We were seated on time, rapid courteous wait staff who made a great recommendation for me. You got salad and garlic bread with your entree. The food was delicious and I thought reasonably priced. We were very happy with our night.

We had a wonderful experience here. Live music but not loud and just so relaxing. The food was great and friendly service. Would definitely sit outside if the weather is nice.
