Service and food were great. Wait staff did an excellent job with pacing our meals. Attended the valentines day special meal the second night and they were very flexible with the menu. Food is very well prepared, inventive, and executed with care. Wine list is good with a nice range of prices, regions, varietals to choose from.

Had lunch @ Core while attending our distributor conference, it was buffet style but very good, everything from salads, burgers, chicken, fries, etc. it wasn't cheap, about $29 per person, glad I have an expense account!

I wasn't sure what to expect since breakfast was included with my stay. I couldn't believe the amount of food that was available and it was all delicious. In addition to the cold and warm offerings that were buffet style, you can order waffles, omelets and other custom items. Drinks were also included and the hot chocolate tasted like a... More

Dined with large parties at Core twice food was good but service was shockingly slow- took about 3 hours for apps, entree & dessert and just never understood why the delays between courses. Same for breakfast first day 10 min to get greeted with an apology. Same experience last day probably 30 min til pancakes arrived which are amazing. Middle... More

We decided to stay an extra night at the Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain, after a meeting, to celebrate our anniversary. After extending the stay, we called Core Kitchen, where we had dined on about six previous visits to the Ritz Carlton, to find that because Valentine’s Day was approaching, they had a special prix fixe menu, for that weekend, extending...

The menu and quality are first rate and could easily attract patrons from the community. The fresh tastes and quality were great and the service was first rate.

Breakfast was with our stay at Dove Mountain--we were always happy with wait staff and if the food you ordered was not done to your preference they tried to make it better. The only negative i can say is that the coffee was always luke warm--otherwise we enjoyed our various choices each day.

Great ambiance/ decor in the perfect desert setting but they've lost the edge that made them unforgettable. Service was OK but not clearly not on their game. Chef needs to eat his own cooking and figure out why everything seems a bit off. Ribeye ... tough and skinny like its from a grocery store. Sides of Mac/ cheese, mushrooms and... More

It must have been an off day. We had lunch here and it was not good. Bad food and poor service. I had a Caesar salad with prawns. It was chopped romaine that did not appear fresh at all with a thick mayonnaise dressing. It was served with 6 or 8 anchovies on top, an unusual presentation and one the... More

Core is a wine bar with rustic American food. I had the Dove Mountain Pinot Noir which was amazing and the special pork chops. Highly Recommend
